My husband and I moved last week. For the first time in over 20 years. And it was exhausting. But well worth it. Although still emptying boxes we can tell this move was the right choice. I for one am blissfully happy. And I’m the grumpy one!
What this move brought up for me magically was the concept that I really need to shake things up a bit. From time to time. I normally admit that I’m a stick in the mud. But shaking it up has its merits.
I learned that I can do my magic even with all of my tools packed away. My hands are just as powerful without a gandr. It’s been so long since I’ve worked without one that I had forgotten there was a time I practiced that way. And I was just as effective as ever. That was a lesson for me. No need for tools. I like using them. But they aren’t necessary.
I learned that time moves as quickly as you want it to. As we got closer and closer to the big day and as excitement soared the days went by faster and faster. I felt the time I was spending getting ready was getting less and less. But I was getting just as much accomplished. Strange phenomenon to have the feeling of time compress while getting a lot done. It amazed me. Yet I realized that time will move as quickly or slowly as you wish. Just change you awareness of time and the time that passes will change as well.
Magic knows no sense of place. You can truly be anywhere and practice your craft. I had some idea that my most profound magic was occurring because I practiced in one room which energy had been built up in for years. Yet we’ve lived here but a week and I’ve already done some powerful magic in my new ritual room. I didn’t need the same old surroundings. I was the key. Not the place.
So take some chances and really shake things up for yourself. And see how much you’ve truly grown.
