Big change is ok when it helps you step further into your flow.
Here is my story on my recent change and how I dealt with it.
It can be quite confronting when you realise that you have to make changes within your life to help you step more into your authenticity.
For me, it feels like the Goddess Oya has come through with such a force that everything has been shaken and what is no longer needed has been ripped from me.
When you become aware of what needs to change, you can go through many emotions. Sadness, disappointment and a little confusion when you have worked so hard for so long at something and realise it is now time to let it go.
Then you can experience nervousness and excitement of what is to come, for the unknown.
A range of emotions flood through you.
I now realise that my path was beginning to alter when I decided to have a break from holding alot of workshops, that was about 18 months ago. I had told myself that I just needed time off. I work full time aswell so with the many workshops I was holding, I was tired.
This year I felt inspired to recommence hold my Delving into the Dark Moon workshop, it was always one of my favourites. A couple months ago, I was also inspired to create some new workshops working around my Moon Phase worksheets (click here to download for free). My plans were, aswell as the Dark Moon workshops, to hold a New Moon & Full Moon Workshop to work through the worksheets and create intentions, working with the waxing and waning energies etc. I began to write outlines for these workshops and even discussed the idea with a few friends.
I was excited about the energy around these new workshops however I had the intuitive feeling to wait.
Don’t schedule anything yet.
That was when I saw the Facebook event. You see a friend of mine, with her newly created business had decided to hold her own workshop on the Full Moon. I was surprised. A little disappointed but it had to be a coincidence. She wouldn’t intentionally copy my plans for my upcoming workshops.
So I continued writing and planning my workshops.
Then at the next Dark Moon, after some deep reflection and meditation, I received guidance from my Ancestors that now is not the time to schedule the workshops I had planned.
I was a little shocked as I was ready, but always listening to my Ancestors I did nothing.
Waiting for the right time to create the events and advertise my workshops.
Then a few days later I see another event from my friend. A Dark Moon / New Moon workshop.
Hmmmmmmmm. Not so much a coincidence anymore.
I am aware that I do not have the exclusive rights on workshops around the moon phases nor am I the only one to hold them however, this friend I have known for 15 years, she attended my workshops, and the workshops she is now holding is in the very next suburb.
If someone wants to replicate my workshops, that is their prerogative and we all know there are many many people that can benefit from learning to work with the moons energy, but I did expect my friend to talk to me about it first, and at the very least hold her workshops more that 1km away from where I hold mine.
As you can imagine I was shocked and hurt and a little angry as I had mentioned my plans for my new workshops with her however this is when I realised it was time to move on.
I accepted this series of events as a gift from the Gods.
She gifted me with clearer sight to see what I needed to do.
I chose not to sit in that energy of hurt and disappointment.
Nothing good would come of it. I accept that it is time to move on from the friendship and also change my direction.
My path has changed
My direction altered.
A new road, perhaps one less travelled.
Going through this process of releasing, I feel I have stepped deeper into my flow.
I have even started painting which I am enjoying thoroughly, and I have put some of them on my website so go and check them out. I am even hoping to enrol in an Arts course or degree when time and finances allow it. To allow my creativity to flow.
I feel more of my authentic self appearing and assimilating with my current energy and many things that I have previously associated with ‘me’ have fallen away.
And with that, and many other things, is the name Magick & Wyld.
As I am sure you would have seen the changes to my Facebook Page, Instagram and Website name. It is now just
When I get organised I am going to change my last name to Wyld. My birth name is Nicole Taylor, but I have been Niki forever and soon my surname will be Wyld. I love the energy of change, I am accepting my transformation and cannot wait to change the energy around my name.
I would love you to continue to join me on my journey throughout this magickal thing we call life.
I will be sharing more of my personal journey that I hope will inspire you to deepen your connection to self and live your authenticity.
Don’t worry, I will continue to offer consults, and I am excited for what will manifest as I step deeper into my authenticity and let my creativity flow.
I am going to be spending much more time on the things that make me light up.
On the things that hold me in my flow to let my authentic self shine.
Hopefully I will inspire you to do the same.
So to finished off where I started.
It is totally ok to change.
We cannot stay the same forever.
We continue to evolve in this life.
If you are thrown from your feet when the winds of change come through, stand up, shake off the dust and create a plan to move on.
It is ok to walk away from people whom you are no longer connected with.
It is ok to let go of things that no longer serve your highest good.
We cannot walk through this life always taking on new things without letting some go.
Always letting go with love in your heart, but letting go.
