I have been going back to basics lately on my journey...reading and practicing a bit.
Mostly the reading is refreshers, authors like Cunningham, Amber K and others whom I read in the beginning. I love these authors for their insightful and easy beginnings.
I have been spending more time being aware of the world around me, the sun on my skin, the moon embracing my soul...nature comforting me. I had forgotten what this part of being a Wiccan was all about and I realized how much I missed the embrace of magick in my life.
It has been very hot this summer, so I have not been getting out as much or for as long as I would like to, but I think I will change that just so that I can enjoy the season.
The only thing I can see that I am going to have to learn to do is create some form of protection and prosperity rituals for my day to day life and online.
So far, thing have been good and I am working slowly on getting my tools and things back in my life. This is exciting for me since I know that the things I lost originally were meant to go elsewhere and new ones were meant to come onto my path along with new opportunities.
I need to start a Shadow Journal and recording everything on how I am creating new traditions and learning all over again. Since I love writing, this will be a good part of my magickal journey.
I am hoping that the traditions I am creating will be the foundation for my crone years and will help me bond with the Goddess, God and help me create new and lasting friends!
