All Beliefs are Welcome Here!
This past couple of weeks for me, has been all about coming back to being a practicing witch. Being an every day witch. Over the past year since I've had to go back to a CNA (certified nursing assistant) job in a nursing home setting has just not been a happy time. It's not where I want to be i my life, its not what I want to be doing anymore. Everything about it feels negative. My whole body repulses it!
So, I decided it is time to do something about it then. When was I the happiest, the most content in my life? Well duh! When I was practicing. When I was learning, actively participating in growing o my path every day, in every way.
Of course I can not just stay at home, and have no income. I dream of someday having my own shop with my own hand mades. But until that time I want to learn more, do more. I love being a Passion Parties Independent Consultant. So I am going to put more energy into that. And more energy into my daily witch. To get this started off I ran across a blog post by Jasmeine Wiccan Moonsong, whom I had met through Sacred Mists a few years back. She wrote a blog post last week about something called a Prosperity Exercise she is participating in at Sacred Mists. And she shared the jist of it. It sounded like exactly what I needed to get my but in gear! And I've kept up with it for 6 days now. It is a 30 day exercise. But of course you can keep it going...
1. All you do is find any bottle, jar, container, box - decorate it. Add anything magickal you want to it. I decorated mine with glitter and herbs on the outside around the bottom. Added some herbs to the inside. Along with some magickal items - a ruby chip. (love, wisdom, Aids regeneration of physical/spiritual heart. Enhances circulation. Vitalizes blood and entire body/mind system. Strengthens immunity. Activates sluggish or dormant conditions on physical/spiritual levels. Refines lower passions. Courage, integrity, selfless service, joy, spiritual devotion, power, leadership. Helps banish sense of limitation)
I also added to my prosperity jar a business card from my Passion Parties and a business card for my magickal crafts - Sacred Oaks Alchemy.
2. Write a list of affirmations. My list consists of 5 affirmations.
3. Read your list outloud every day when you add your dollar to your prosperity jar.
I'm not going to actually list my affirmations because I believe it will weaken the power of them.
I did anoint my list, money, and business cards with Calendula anointing oil that I purchased from White Magick Alchemy. Every day when I add my $1.00 in (which has been one dollar in change I am finding around the house lol)
I also made some additions to my prosperity exercise that I felt compelled to do. I also draw out 1 tarot card per day from Witches Tarot by Ellen Dugan and Mark Evans. I have other magickal items sitting around my prosperity jar as well. One is small incense cauldron that I burn Witches Brew natural loose incense in. (its almost gone & no longer sold :( ) I have a bamboo plant beside my jar. Bamboo plants are the bringers of prosperity and good fortune. 2 pewter faeries guard my jar.
My prosperity exercise is the highlight of my day. I look forward to it every day. I'm finding change in the most unlikely places. I'm wanting to do more cleaning and organizing around my house just in hopes of finding that $1.00 for my jar!
