One of the most valuable commodities in the world and yet how we waste it!
I am (in one way) very fortunate to have been invalided out of work at the age of just over 50. To all intents and purposes, I’m retired; so you would think that would give me all the time I need to catch up on things I wanted to do when I was working for a living, wouldn’t you?
Wrong! I could still do a whole A – Z of hobbies I have taken up, bought stuff for and never pursued. In fact I might do just that – my A-Z of junk in my cupboard, each bit related to a wish!
I signed up with my dear friend and mentor Jessica Macbeth, for a new course she is running. The exercises should take up about half an hour of my day. It is an extremely valuable “back to basics” course that will remind me of all the bad habits I have got into over the years. I really want to do it. Sometimes, however, I am still finding that 30 minutes is hard to spare.
It’s a shame because magic is also about time. Even when one has progressed and the paraphernalia is
no longer necessary, one can slip in and out of spirit easily, sitting down and really “being”, just being in the moment and gathering up energy is vital if work is to be done.
I have a regular routine of doing distance healing work for friends and family, people on the healing list with a couple of groups … I manage this. What I don’t manage is the very fundamental exercises I should be doing.
Writing is the same. I know many of my fellow writers do it too. We go onto a social website just to post some publicity and before you know where you are, an hour or more has gone by while you chatted, shared, re-tweeted and sympathised with people. That horrible moment when you realise it is nearly lunchtime and you have written nothing! Oh the shame, the angst!
So if I were to possess a magic super-power (apart from the very feeble ones I do now) it would be to stretch time to accommodate all the socialising, magic, working, healing, travelling, cooking and other stuff I desperately want to do. Anyone got a good spell?
