I am a bit of a magpie. When I love a magical tool, I want to collect it. I have tarot and oracle decks, pendulums and loads of crystals that speak volumes about this habit.
I love to use these tools when I am working with magic. Pulling cards, using crystals to focus energy and asking my pendulum for clarity are all things I do often.
Maybe you too have these practices. Maybe you too are a bit of a collector and find yourself with a myriad of such tools to choose from.
I want to share a secret about tools with you.
You don’t need them.
Seriously. If you got rid of all your cards, crystals and pendulums tomorrow (which I am by no means suggesting you do), you would still be just as magical as you are today.
These tools are just a way to hone our focus, to guide our energy to assist us in accessing our intuition.
When these tools are unavailable your magical powers are not lost, they might just require a little rebooting, a little pivoting.
Your body with all of its senses is the most powerful tool you have access to. And it is with you ALL THE TIME!
The more you build your relationship with your body, the easier it is to understand what your body is trying to tell you in a given moment.
The more you practice meditation and begin to understand the messages given to you through symbols the greater this symbol library becomes and the easier you can translate the information you receive.
When you connect to your body and to your sensation, your feelings, and even your thoughts, you are creating a habitat for connection with other energies around you. Your relationships with the elements, with the cycles of the seasons and the moon will grow deeper and you will be able to use these energies in your craft with more ease.
Take some time to sit with yourself.
Bring your awareness first to what you see. Really look around the space you have chosen and discover what colors and textures you see.
Close your eyes.
And listen to what sounds you hear.
Notice what is near and what is further away.
See if you can identify these sounds.
What do you smell? Is there more than one scent you can identify?
What do you feel with your fingers. What surfaces are in the space you are in, what fabric, what does your skin feel like under your fingertips?
Now how are you feeling? What emotions arise as you sit here with your sensations?
Take a few minutes to jot down your reflections and revisit this exercise often.

What is Remembered Lives
We all love and born of this love is grief.
Over the last couple of years we have not had the opportunity to come together as often in community to honor and hold our grief and each other in our grief.
This sacred act is so important, so with the coming thinning of the veils, Irisanaya Moon and I have come together to create a ritual for all of us to have a space to name our grief.
Regardless of what you are grieving or when your loss occurred, you are welcome in this Circle.
The Leaves of Grief ritual is scheduled for October 22nd.
Save the date, registration will open soon.
