Today I am giving in to feeling untethered. During this autumn season, it can be so easy for me to become ungrounded. There is this part of me that longs to be between worlds. The world feels heavy now and the constant flow of bad news pouring out at me is overwhelming. Yesterday I spent a good deal of my free time reading and working on my BOS. I burned some cedar incense and just let myself get lost for a spell in the spirit world. I think I’m going to allow myself a season of this, maybe a few more days. The holidays are rushing at us all now and soon enough I will feel the stress of it all and I will be struggling for balance.
How are you handling this time of gray and moving into the darkness?
My Samhain harvest was wonderful and this year was a big year for manifestation. I’m feeling like all of my hard work paid off in a big way! I have many new things happening right now and I’m trying not to rush headlong into things. So far my new coven is working pretty well. This is my first attempt at having a teaching coven. In the past, I have tended to work with folks who were more seasoned. Teaching has always been a challenge and I have to keep reminding myself that I can inspire if I just put myself in the right headspace. I also made my first video for my new Youtube channel. I’m hoping through this channel I can meet some new people and build some new friendships and connections. The video is pretty far out of my comfort zone. I’m sure there will be negative folks out there. I have to keep reminding myself that negative people can just be ignored. My Etsy store is back up and I’m hoping to have some cool witchy items in there soon.
This last step in my year of restoration has brought me the greatest joy! When I am working on this area of my life I feel like I am right where I am supposed to be in the universe. It brings me so much happiness to know my heart still sings when I engage with helping others in their practice. Bliss is the word I’m reaching for. I know it will not always be easy. Dealing with the personalities can be really draining. That being said, helping others and seeing them really understand and grow is pretty uplifting.
I am grateful. I’m grateful for my craft, the gods and ancestors, and all the people who stood by me when things were hard.
How did your Samhain season go? Can you believe that Yule is right around the corner? I know I’m not ready for that!
