I’m not necessarily a resolution sort of person. And yet, every year, I make some.
But if this year’s messages and encounters have taught me anything, it’s that I can do more to support my magick. And since accountability is a thing, I’m going to be bold and name what I’m doing here.
Resolution: To Know, To Will, To Dare, to Keep Silent
Read – I am the WORST at reading. I am very good at buying books. I want to balance this a bit more. So, I resolve to read a book a week (more, if possible). This will include audio books because that will dovetail nicely into…
Move – For some reason, my body felt stuck this year. Maybe it was the political climate. Maybe it was the ongoing grief battle. Maybe it was just because. Every day, I will move my body for at least 30 minutes. Maybe with an audio book. Maybe with nature. Which reminds me…
Nature – I used to walk in this amazing park every single day. I haven’t done that in a while. It restored me, reminded me of living beauty, and allowed me to settle. While I don’t know if every day is sustainable, at least a few days a week is.Quiet – I’ve noticed lately that haven’t allowed myself any space. And I know I’ve talked about this a lot. I need to carve out the time, so I already placed notes in my calendar to take that space.
Daily Practice – There are things I do every day. There are things I *should* do every day. I am okay about a daily practice, but I want to be more consistent. Something for the mind, the body, and the spirit. And more drumming. I want to make that more of a daily thing as my body thrums and heals each time I touch my djembe or frame drum.
Learn – This sort of goes along with reading, but I want to devote more time to learning. Of course I learn when I teach and I take classes, but there are ways in which I think I could study more. I tend to be a ‘let’s experience this’ sort of Witch vs. an academic. This is fine too, and I think a little study time would help my magick.
This all will take some doing, some shuffling, and some re-prioritizing. And in doing so, my goal is to be more caring toward myself, my heart, and my magick.
I resolve to step back into the foundation, to step into what brought me here.
I resolve to reconnect with wonder, to remember the wonder.
I resolve to listen more and talk less.
I resolve to widen to compassion that offers healing.
I resolve to have strong boundaries and hard stops for rest.
What do you want to give to your magickal self this calendar year? Do you have a resolution? Or more than one? Or none?
