I’m still in the broom closet. Are you as well? It’s fine if we’re here. It’s cozy, safe, and we don’t offend anyone. But, something has been happening to me every autumn… I am shedding more and more veils. I’m opening the door a crack, poking one or two toes outside, and so far, so good. But, there is something I want you (and me) to remember….
The world needs our magic. It needs mine. It needs yours. You have always known you held magic, or perhaps it’s newly awakened in you. The world needs it. It always has. Yet, if there were ever a time the world needed magic, it’s now.
You are awakened for a reason. The world has kissed your lips, opened your eyes, reached into your soul, and opened a door. You are magic, and the world is calling.
I’m not talking about hexing presidents or taking down regimes (all of which needs to be done). I’m talking about personal power, personal magic. Personal healing and personal growth. Have you seen the articles about how trees grow roots toward the sound of water, flowers exude sweeter nectar when they sense a pollinator nearby, and the mycorrhizae communication network between the rooted Others? That is what you have within you. Magic is energy, you are made of energy, and the world needs you.
Whether you openly wear ‘hex the patriarchy’ tee shirts, have pentacles tattooed for all to see, and spray the world around you with patchouli and sage, or you are firmly ensconced in your magical broom closet, the world needs you to find a way to be your amazing magical self. Be magic, don’t just plan rituals to do magic. Every single thought and action is magical. That’s where intention comes in.
So, shower in water and fire elements. Cook with earth and air elements. Bless every driver you pass. Speak with every winged or rooted or four+-legged Being. Listen to the music within the wind. Dance in the rain. Enter the foggy liminal spaces. Collect seeds. Read a book. Do it all with magical intention. The world needs your magic.
