Halloween month taught me about Magic and Personal Power
It’s All Hallow’s eve and I can just feel the magic in the air. Witches and warlocks have trained all month for this day when the veil over reality is at its thinnest, and we can use our powers to conjure up the fantastic.
Halloween has always been my favorite “Holiday” of the year. In Sarah's household, Halloween is a two-month ordeal. It starts the first day of September and ends on the morning after Halloween (in which I begin the quickest transition to Christmas ever, lol)🎄
And, having this two month period where my focus is on brewing some potions and casting some spells, this year felt like a very different lesson.
Actually, this year was more about claiming back my power, working on my beliefs and finally putting my energy to work than gathering Eye of Newt & Werewolf hair.
If you’re familiar with the concept of magic, you’ll know that all magic comes from your feelings, not your thoughts.
One doesn’t simply think magic or think spells to life. You conjure them with your feelings and your emotions. The more powerful the feeling, the more powerful the result.
And this year, that was my main focus.
On this afternoon of Hallow’s eve that I have been preparing for, I can say that my ability to self-empower has strengthened drastically and that what I am “casting” finally feels real.
Obviously, I’m not going to use this confidence to only turn a lock into a frog, but instead, I am using the power I’ve cultivated over the last two months to bring some very special goals to Life.
My point for this blog post is to bring in more Halloween spirit, to keep the tradition of All Hallow’s eve going, and to gather some awareness that we all have magic inside.
I didn’t spend my usual two months carving pumpkins and hanging decorations, but I did teach myself to believe in my magic even beyond my veil of reality. One of my favorite quotes from my most cherished childhood-Halloween movie is “Magic is simple. You just got to want it, and let yourself have it.”
This couldn’t have encapsulated what power is any better.
So, before I let you eat a month’s worth of candy in one night and forget the true magic that is in the air tonight, I’m going ask you two simple questions.
What has been holding you back from conjuring your greatest goals?
And, how much are you willing to believe that magic, in you, truly exists?
Tonight is a very powerful night. For some, it means satisfying the need to be someone else for the night. For others, it could be calling up a deceased relative or loved one.
People love to play with the unknown in the cemetery, while others love scary movies and lighting candles while stuffing their face full of chocolate and chips.
For you, it could mean letting go off all the limits you’ve imposed on yourself so you can finally let yourself see what you have casted. Or, maybe it’s the night you’ll finally claim back your power against your darkness.
Either way, holidays are traditions meant to keep the Spirit alive.
If you’ve found yourself ignorant of the magic beyond reality, I hope tonight teaches you one good lesson.
In the meantime, I woke up this morning already casting my spells, some for love and others for results that I seek, but mostly to see if I believe in myself enough to use my superpower on this world, and make it a better place.
You’ve got it. You just got to believe it and let yourself see it.
