Living A Magical Life
We all do magic in a circle, we cast spells, plan rituals, and summon the elements. What about the “normal” everyday times when we aren’t able to cast a circle or perform a spell? Do we walk around pretending not to be witches? Do we blend in with everyone else because we fear their reaction to who we are? Sure we do. Even those of us who have made our beliefs known don’t share 100% of who we are and what we do. This can cause us to live a more mundane life than a magical one.
So what do we do about this? We can’t walk around with a bag of herbs, incense, and candles casting spells in public for health, or success, or anything for that matter. We can’t walk around at work with our athames summoning the elements and deity, and I doubt that our friends would tolerate us for very long if we were constantly in a meditative state or a trance. So, how can we live a magical life everyday without actually “doing” magic?
Some things that you can do to live a magical life include:
1. Take a walk outside. It is important to connect with nature, you should take time to feel it, connect with it, and become one with it.
2.Take care of the earth. Volunteer, recycle, pick up the small pieces of trash when you are at the park, Don’t litter, or plant a tree. Every little thing makes a difference. Our earth is our home. We must take care of it.
3. Read, study, learn, and grow. It is important that you know the craft, and the principles of Wicca if you want to be a magical person. Be the best and most knowledgable witch that you can be, always.
4. Be true to yourself. Know who you are, be genuine. You are the most important and valuable magical tool that you will ever posess. Take care of yourself.
5. And most importantly, Remember and live by the rede. “An it harm none, do what thou wilt.”
Remember, magic is not only about what we do. To me, the most powerful magic of all lies in knowing the divine. I mean truly knowing, not pretending to. There is more magic in feeling the presence of the Lord and Lady in the air around me or in the face of the moon on a bad day than I could ever put into a spell or ritual. The core of magic lies inside of us, the part of us that the mundane don’t see, the part that we work so hard to connect to, yet we are constantly suppressing. Living a magical life means becoming more in tune with the divine all around us, in everything, achieving a constant state of enlightenment.
