Five ways I keep my spiritual practice going even when the going is tough - Monday musings from the Sensible Witch
Two weeks into the year and already it feels like we’ve been in 2021 for a few months! So much has happened since I last wrote Monday musings including violence in America, lockdown and Brexit in the UK….there’s chaos everywhere!
It’s easy to become overwhelmed by all of this, and its easy to forget our spiritual practices when the world is in seeming chaos. For me, and probably lots of other folk, it’s the time when I’m feeling overwhelmed that I need them the most so here’s five ways I remind myself of the magic that’s out there in the world as well as within me.
I wrote this before the news of a new lockdown here in the UK! Stay safe everyone!!
And just like that, here we are at the beginning of a new year! Last year seemed so long yet at the same time, it also passed by in the blink of an eye. I spent most of last year at home with my children pondering if I would be able to reopen my home based business again anytime soon so that I could pay my bills comfortably and if it would be safe to wander out given that we spent most of that time also shielding my eldest son. It has been a time of worry and stress in our house that’s for sure!
I resolved to spend the darker times figuring out what was next for me. What did I need to let go of and what new shiny things could I bring forward? I spent my time reading, looking inward and planting seeds that I hoped would begin to blossom once the wheel turned again and light began to show its face again.
I’m no good at keeping resolutions, I never have been, so I gave up making them a very long time ago. Instead, I’m going to put all my new year hopes and energy into giving my seeds the right environment. Taking time to weed out the things that will hamper their growth and feeding them all the things they need to grow healthy and strong whatever happens out there in the world.
Here’s to the next year, hopefully the sun will shine even just a little 😊
