Reflecting on 2016 & Some Practical Magic
A few years back, our little family started a tradition of having a night where we hang together, discuss the preceding year and ask for some guidance in the form of what some might consider the witchy woo practice of drawing oracle cards.
Do we necessarily believe in magic/magick? Well, to varying degrees among the four of us, yes. But maybe not in the way you’re picturing. I’ve come to consider my perhaps less than orthodox practices, rituals and beliefs as forms of ‘practical magic’.
It’s o.k., you don’t have to get it. But, maybe you're someone who feels a resonance with these kinds of things too. If you do, you're not alone.
Lately, I've been having so many flashbacks to my childhood and realize that my relationship to all things mystical, has always existed. In fact, although it's never openly talked about, belief and experience with the witchy woo, runs in the family.
What I've come to know, is that using these kinds of ‘magical tools’ is really more a way of listening to your intuition/soul/divine guidance (or whatever you choose to call the greater wisdom that we all know or have experienced on some level… even if we dismiss it or call it coincidence).
