MAGICK IS EVERYWHERE!!!
It always amazes me how one thing can lead to another, then another, then something else, ending at a place you never dreamed of!!
So, this morning myself and Ian were talking to H about his plans for the future (he turns 16 in a few weeks!!) and what he wants to do - he's into animation, and is really good at it, he just has that teenage lethargy about him which is really challenging (to me anyway, the serial 'doer' hahahah). Anyway, trying to get to the answer of what he is passionate about took a while (he is also on the Autistic Spectrum), so I gave him the example of my journey from factory to College, Drama School, Yoga Teacher, Sound Healer, High Priestess and I realised something quite profound in that moment (and I apologise if I have said this before!!) that through all the things/modalities/skills I have learned thoughout my life, the one thread? The one constant? MAGICK! Or Witchcraft (to me they are one and the same!!) But I realised at a very early age that there was magick everywhere! And that continued - from experimenting with alcohol as a teenager as it took away my shyness and made me confident and funny!! That to me was fascinating!! From dipping my toe in Witchcraft by the time I was 20, and being intrigued by people and why they do the things they do (another fascination for me was serial killers - I even kept a box file with clippings in it, labelled 'Weird People'!! lol - why and how they did what they did, what drove that? What motivates people is still interesting, and actually comes in really handy when creating and marketing our Witchcraft courses!!
I digress.....Magick - everywhere....at one point I was doing voluntary work with the West Sussex Probation Service!! I explored sooo many avenues!! Settled on acting for a long time - which is PURE magick!! And Yoga - more magick!! Magick, magick, magick, magick!!!! Because life is, and everything myself and Ian do now revolves around this mindset - in our photography, our camping trips, walks and food we eat, the stories Ian is writing...it is ALL magick!!! So, it really need come as NO SURPRISE that I am now teaching a magickal mindset!! And I'm loving thee creative process of creating our courses!! It's inspired sooo much for both myself and Ian and I am eternally grateful to be in the situation I am in!
So I have to ask......what is it that you can be thankful for today?
Brightest Blessings All!!
