As I continue to delve into the Winter Solstice time of reflection, so many things have come to the surface and have made me think about where I am at this moment within my life.
Within the last 13 moons, so many things have happened.
A relationship began but did not have the strength to succeed
Magick & Wyld was full of activity with the E-Magazine and that has slowed
I began to focused more on health and then that was forgotten with my treadmill again gathering dust and joggers somewhere in my room
I could go on, but I don’t want to.
When I look at it all, I am in the exact same position I was in this time last year. And, if I am honest with myself, the last few years.
Although yes, I have learned through these experiences, especially within the last year, I have not achieved what I wanted to.
I ask myself why and what am I going to do about it
To be honest, I feel I have been a little slack in my own magickal practices. Putting all of my energy towards keeping my clients on track I realise I have lost some of my own mojo.
This is a reminder to practice what I preach.
So it begins
The other night I began creating a vision ‘wall’. I have my bed against a wall in the corner of my room draped with material creating a little nook for me to sleep within. On the wall right near my head I have begun to stick up pictures that inspire me. Picture of what I want to do, how I would like to live. Every evening this is the last thing I look at and I can dream of the fabulousness that I will manifest.
In the morning, I can wake and spend a few moments looking at the space inspiring and reminding me to work my magick throughout my day.
Working from the Winter Solstice with the rebirth of the sun and its building of strength, I will continue to work with this energy, combining it with the energy of the moon phases, on every waxing moon I will add photos to my wall of manifestation.
There are 2 important things I am working on, and knowing that when they fall into place the other items will slide on in. I am working on strengthening the Magick & Wyld E-Magazine, and also planning mini road trips up and down to the coast.
What are you manifesting in this waxing energy?
A beautiful day of darkness.
The shortest day and longest night of the year.
A time when, although it will still get colder in the coming months, we know that the light will again return to the earth.
From today the sun will stay with us a little more each day growing in strength.
We now enter the waxing part of the year.
I equate this time to the Dark Moon (how perfect that it is Dark Moon on Friday) when we can go within, connect with our Ancestors for guidance and reflect of what has happened over the past year.
It is a time to think on what it is you would like to manifest within the waxing phase of the solar cycle as the sun grows in strength which helps you manifest your dreams (and offcourse adding your moon magick to boost it all).
Winter Solstice Magick
Spend some time today to reflect.
Remember the things you wanted to manifest last Winter Solstice.
What has become of those wishes?
Did they manifest?
Did you forget what you asked for?
Did you not put in any effort or work your magick throughout the year to manifest it?
Whatever your answers are to the questions above, you must give thanks to the Gods and Ancestors for all the experiences throughout the past year.
Give thanks for lessons learned.
We must recognise that every experience, positive or negative, is an opportunity to learn and grow.
Sit for a moment and farewell the year.
Let it go.
If you need to, write on a piece of paper something to let it go, this could be as simple as writing Goodbye.
Then burn it.
Now, think on what you would like to create in the coming year.
Create a manifestation list
Then when you have figured out what you are attracting for the coming year, take a page for each item on your list.
Write your item 1 at the top and then below that write down the different things you are going to do to manifest it.
One by one go through the items on the list and detail your 'actions' (both magickal and physical) that are needed to manifest that which you desire.
I suggest you go into as much details as possible, so that you can regularly revisit this list to change it, add to it and work through it.
You have to do more than just write it down.
You have to put your time and energy into manifesting it.
How do you expect the energy of the Gods, the Moon, the Sun etc to work its magick if you do not align yourself with it and push it into the right direction.
Here, now, at Winter Solstice, you are working your magick and changing your life.
Step outside your comfort zone
Delve deep realising your dreams
What life have you always wanted to manifest?
You are essentially creating a magickal 'To-Do' manifestation list, so that at next Winter Solstice, you can look back and think how far you have come with your manifestations.
Wishing you all a beautiful and magickal winter solstice.
