Finding the time to keep up with all of the holiday season activities, celebrations, & shopping can be exhausting. Put in a full or part time job and it can be downright overwhelming.
One of the aspects of this time of year is that we are encouraged to give, celebrate, be involved, and GO GO GO! Hang on a sec... I need a nap just from THINKING about it!
*Yawns and stretches* Ok, that felt good. Now... my question to you: what motivates you to be all you can be and STILL keep a sane and level head during the holidays? Is there anywhere in the Magickal Me Manual that reminds us to not only do all of the above, but also to do something nice for ourselves? *flips through the pages*. Hmmm... I think I see it here in the Appendix under W for "Who's Got Time?"
If nothing else - my suggestion (and gift) to you is to take 2 to 5 minutes in the morning for yourself and do the Braucherei Morning Ritual that you'll find on Wiccan author Silver Ravelwolf's blog. This wonderful chant is super easy to memorize and quick to do. AND IT WORKS!
Not only will you find the Braucherei Morning Ritual on Silver's blog, you'll also find the Great Magickal Release Program. Each day she challenges you to throw away, give away or just plain toss things in your life that are holding you back from being THE SUPER AWESOME FANTASTIC WONDERFUL MAGICKAL person that you can be! The trick here is that you have to start at the beginning, and follow each day as it is laid out. Believe me - Silver has a thoughtful purpose for each step of the program.
I encourage everyone to take this challenge! Start when you can, do what you can each day, and DON'T GIVE UP! When you start to see all the mundane physical junk leave your life, you'll find that your mental junk runs away too. (I think I heard mine scream, but that might have been Nuit when I tossed out her VERY OLD CATNIP!)
Won't you join me on this amazing journey of cleansing and reclaiming of self? You won't be disappointed!
In Love and Light,
