Note: “quick”s are a new series of short, pithy posts straight from the editor, Carolyn Elliott
A client cancels a session on a day when I have a stuffy, runny nose and didn’t feel too much up for talking.
The same day, my friend’s car breaks down, and so we can’t go out for the night as we had planned.
When circumstances conspire so that things I’ve agreed to do but don’t happen to feel like doing when the appointed time rolls around…. end up not happening for reasons that appear “beyond my control”…
… I find it’s usually good for me to acknowledge – at least to myself – that I totally witched that shiz.
Of course, I didn’t deliberately do magic to break down my friend’s car or cause my client to cancel that day.
But when I’m being honest with myself, I know that the unconscious creative part of my mind, which is much more powerful than my conscious intentions… did.
It’s as if through cultivating my magics over the years I’ve accidentally created a field around me where I get what I want, even though I don’t always mean to get what I want!
Acknowledging to myself that I witch stuff (i.e., unconsciously magic it) isn’t a reason to blame or guilt myself – it’s sort of just funny, and a way of staying aware of just how powerful my unconscious magical will can be.
Also, knowing that I witch stuff is a way of staying in touch with the fact that my witch power exceeds my ego and my conscious intentions.
My witch power is something that I get to wield and deliberately cultivate through practices, but it’s also something electrical and humorous with a bit of a “mind of its own” that moves through me and around me. I like to keep myself grounded in the knowledge of that mysterious fact.
So, what have you witched lately? Tell us all about it in the comments ;)
