A new moon crossed the sky on Monday, and here we are in a sort of cosmic grey area for those of us who like to take into consideration its phases. It is said that the three days before and after new and full moons are still brimming with the phase’s energy. But where is the best place to cast our focus in this particular time – just after the new moon?
Spiritual pep talk time! Logging into this blog just now felt like busting open a REALLY creaky door in the middle of the night, probably waking up a roommate. (Am I still welcome here?!?) I’m ashamed to say I nearly abandoned this magical place!
I have a confession to make. I’m not a witch for a living (although I hope someday to cast a spell that pays the bills). I have a full time day job and a dog just like you. For a time I really just let my life get in the way of, uh, well, my life. Has this ever happened to you?
Your energy! Your excitement! Your life force that makes you YOU! Your personal little energetic field is valuable and worth keeping careful watch over. If you have ever been in a situation where you felt drained afterwards, you know what it’s like to have your energy drained. Read on for a few simple ways you can protect that precious energy!
I’M BACK after having a very intense emotional experience during our last full moon. Did you feel it too? Apparently there are a lot of funky cosmic shifts going on (but then again, when is that not true?) and although I felt like I should have harnessed some of that energy to generate some fun full moon content, I ended up getting so swept up in the intensity of my feelings that all I could do was just be. But I did a lot of thinking about what it is I’m trying to do on this giant rock in space, and what I want to manifest. And how do you manifest stuff anyway?
Witchy friends, I might be all about good vibes and rainbows, but it would be dishonest not to acknowledge the clouds too. I’m not a perfectly enlightened guru chilling on top of a mountain giving lofty advice to weary travelers. I’m a weary traveler too, searching as much for inner peace and wisdom as anyone else. We are on this path together, so let us discover together. Today I’m suggesting we share a spiritual experiment: let’s try our hands at manifesting the lives we want to create for ourselves.
I’ve been a busy witch lately, and like most of us, I have no shortage of responsibilities to keep up with! I’ve noticed that my day-to-day routine keeps me constantly occupied and although I am glad to never feel bored, I have been left with precious little free time for my magical endeavors. I’m sure many can relate — although it would be nice to always be able to set aside a scheduled moment for spiritual reflection, it doesn’t always seem possible. Sometimes we ache to delve into our inner work but can’t set aside more than a moment. So how can we squeeze in a little magic without any wiggle room? You don’t need any extra time or materials — a bit of creativity is all you need to create a magical meditation space anytime, anywhere!
Have you ever heard a snippet of a random conversation from passers-by and caught a few words that seem relevant to your life? Have you ever come across something while lost in thought and said to yourself, that’s a sign? You are onto something when this happens — in fact, you are practicing what I like to call “passive divination.” You are tapping into your intuition using your senses, and the more you stay aware of it, the better you’ll get. So let’s talk about it!
It’s the last day of March, but what else makes this time special? It’s the night of the second blue moon this year! I keep blurting this out excitedly, and the reaction I get is mostly, “Cool… so what does it mean?”
Welcome to a new week on Bewitch Your Life! We have tons of super intense energy buzzing in the air right now even more so than usual because we are heading towards the SECOND BLUE MOON of this year on Saturday!!!!! It’s a rare and enchanting occurrence and the perfect time to do some inner work. We still have the whole week to prepare, so what better way to hype yourself up than to brush up on some mystical knowledge?
Welcome back, my magical friends! This week’s first topic is a bit less lighthearted than the last, but still super fun, I promise! We’re covering one of my favorite ways to get and stay motivated: personal mantras. There are so many different ways that life can get tough. You might be doing your best, but not every issue is instantly fixable. Sometimes you need a super accessible reminder that will keep you focused on your goals and prevent you from losing that inner fire you need to stay passionate. That’s where a personal mantra comes in! Read on for what a personal mantra is, why it will help you, and how to use it to get the most out of your life!
Welcome back, witches! I hope everyone had a wonderful new moon / St. Patrick’s / weekend. I just wrapped up my birthday celebrations (it was the 16th, but I made it my birthday WEEK) and I’m here to share some of my favorite elements of classic witchy style. We’re all familiar with the stereotypical “witch” caricature and while not all of the associations that may come to mind are pretty (I’ll pass on the warts), there are several essential witchy style details that are enduringly timeless and can add a touch of magic to any ensemble.
