Coloring

Yesterday I said I was tired of my art project so I was going to color instead.
I settled on my geometric coloring book.
I started with pink and orange because I don't like either of these colors. Sometimes I try to challenge myself by working outside my comfort zone. About here I decided bright colors weren't so bad and I ordered a very bright comforter for my bed.
About here I figured out how to make my dragon stand up without buying more stuff.
And when I finished I had a plan for 2 box designs.

I did use this as a spell. I chanted mantras as I colored to increase opportunities for promoting my art.

Adjusting

I decided whenever I finished a sewing project I would color. This gives me a nice break. Since I use the coloring pages as spells, I now have a definite time for magick. I am almost done with the dragon. The problem is I have gotten fed up with it. I think if I go on and color, I will relax enough to finally finish. In case you are wondering what's in the Shiva box, the answer is more colored pencils. I thought it fitting to store art supplies with the god of prosperity.

Navigating Life

I hung my little duck from the rear view mirror. As I drive, I glance at it occasionally. I note which way he's facing. Sometimes I look at the duck, then check the compass on my key chain. I pay attention to my thoughts. My mind races with the worries of money and I see the duck turn towards the east. Maybe I should try something new. I begin thinking of new ways to earn money. I think of new budgets. The duck slowly turns forward. We are facing the same direction now. I feel calmer.

It's a simple magick, and very personal. Anyone could do it, but I think we would have different results. I don't think it would work exactly the same for you as it does for me.

This is what I think magick should be- a very personal practice that evolves as the Witch grows.

I like that it's in the open, yet no one will know what I am doing. I think that is the best way to cast spells. Or divine in my case.

Things are still stressful. I am slowly working through. I am currently reading a book about Chinese knots. The book mentions knots as being a way to add blessings to objects. Knots became so important that men carried tools to help untie them. I will explore this further so I can do a Stitch Witch post. Knots make very good spells but no one seems to utilize this form of magick very much.

Still Not in a Row

I haven't gotten to the library today because my babysitters made plans without politely giving me a heads up. So I wrote down what to do whenever I get there. I won't remember.

I'm starting to shift more comfortably into a daily practice. It's still not fixed, as in I'm not sure from day to day what I will be able to do, but I am doing more magick. This is more of shifting the old to fit the new.

I changed my cleaning schedule. I found FLYLady a few years ago  (Google her). I use her system as a basis. I have my house divided into zones, but only spend 1 day on each zone. This cleaning schedule became a spell schedule as well such as casting dream spells when I clean the bedroom. I made Thursday my catch up day. With so many people living in the house, I either can't focus on the zone because I have other problems to solve OR a new mess has developed where I just cleaned the day before. When I make the daily practice page all this information will be on it.

I like how my art page turned out  (other than being annoyed at the page lurking almost undetected at the bottom of the blog). I like updating projects and this helps to keep me focused. I don't want anyone to be disappointed if it seems that I'm not working. Sometimes social media is surprisingly helpful.

Now I need to get busy. I really want to show you a finished dragon.
