.....and readying ourselves for yule!
I began this morning wondering what on earth I was going to blog about this morning! LOL Then, as I was writing a post for our group The Path of Witchcraft (support group for our FREE online course), I stumbled across something which I had been feeling and not necessarily voiced!
During this time and space of Samhain to Midwinter, there have been plans made and executed, learning achieved and creativity abounding! Myself (and Ian) have been walking the path of the Underworld with the Oak King...preparing for his rebirth on the 21st December! It also helps that we still have up some of the Samhain deccies which create the feeling that you are in the Underworld!
How does it feel to tread this dark path?? Well, I admit, I did take down the window hanging as I was getting a little 'aaarrgghhhh! Where's the Sun!!', but it was up for a good week and a half before I did so!! Most of our faery lights are still off too, so when Midwinter rolls around, it'll be like Blackpool Illuminations 'round here!!
It's been a challenge - and it's not finished yet!! - to face the darker side of my own nature (the pushing through resistance to complete a project!, and the itching to change my altar for Yule!! hahahaha), but I like to push my own buttons sometimes!! lol What has been nice though is friends and family visiting, sharing problems, sharing food and receiving healing :) I have also enjoyed (immensely) listening to the Magick Audioplayer - filled with evocative moosic for this particular time of year!! Boootiful!!!!
Of course, as well, it's always a great pleasure to watch our Mother - Nature - change and evolve, shift and move to the season - brings so much joy to see :)
And, so that's a wrap for today :)
Enjoy your Witchy day!!
