I hope you’re well. I realised over the weekend that I needed to start taking my own advice! My heart has been feeling heavy with all the pain, suffering and sadness in the world, and it had been weighing on be like a huge boulder. So what did I do? I started to take some steps to reclaim my magic.
I picked up some knitting needles and some yarn, got on youtube and just started knitting and you know what it was great. I decided I would not have any expectations and just let the yarn flow through my fingers as a type of meditation. I learnt a new skill and it helped my mind to settle! YAY.
I took Fiona’s advice on her blog and took a nap. It was blissful and I realised that one thing I failed to mention on my reclaiming magic blog post was the power of slowing down. It’s hard especially if you have children. Guess what we did? Bundle up the family, grab the dog and went for a walk, with no other purpose that to enjoy each other’s company. If you have kid’s like I do, make it a game. Ours is looking for the different coloured flowers. Little miss four can do that forever on a walk and it stops whining😉
Still not satisfied,after the kids were in bed. I wanted to supercharge my magicky self. I filled the bath with steaming hot water, grabbed a book and dove in. As I sank into the bubbles, I silently gave thanks for the opportunity to relax and hot water. Forty-five minutes later I jumped out of the bath to grab my journal and pen and began scrawling. A week long blockage gone just like that *poof*
So lets break it down, get your magical juices reignited by:
1. Learn a new skill
2. Go for a walk
3. Take a bath- just like Fiona says!
Remember to SLOW DOWN….
