On Sunday, (as I usually do) I spent time at my place at the beach.
I am currently reading The Four Agreements.
The book has floated in and out of my life many times over the years and I've never picked it up.
But on the weekend, it again popped up and I grabbed it and delved in deep.
There are words within the book that I cringe with, using the words spell, black magic and white magic in a way I would not, but I ignored my 'thoughts' on how those words are used and read on.
Sitting at the beach I am reading through the second agreement.
I got to a part where it says....
The mind has the ability to talk to itself, but it also has he ability to hear information that is available from other realms.... our minds also exist in the level of the gods....
It then went on to talk about the 'chatter' within our minds and not paying attention to it. About how the chatter within our minds is likened to walking through a shopping centre and hearing the noise from everyone talking etc and distracts us from 'being'. (we all know that right!?) That the mind lives in more than one dimension, and at times you perceive things not undestading their origin, and that can be from the place of the gods.
I sat for a moment and thought about this. Staring out towards the ocean thinking of how when we work our magick we do tap into the place of the Gods. The world between world's.
Then, in an instant, like someone had just turned up the volume of nature, all I could hear were the waves, the wind, the crickets, the birds etc. Sooooo loud.
The feeling of the breeze against my skin was intense.
Watching the magpies flying and dancing within the air was magnificent.
And Omgoodness the colours of everything around me was brilliant.
In that moment I felt like I had stepped between the vales and was experiencing everything so much clearer than I had ever before. I cannot describe it to you.
It felt like it lasted a minute or two (but goodness knows really), but then some people ran up the sand dunes laughing and I returned to myself.... but wow.... what an experience.
Simple yet Magickal
