Inner Work and Spell Casting
Crisp air. Colorful trees. Porches adorned with pumpkins and mums. October is here! As you may remember, this is my most favorite time of year! I love everything about October, from Halloween to the weather cooling just a bit. To me, October is perfect.
In addition to bringing out our spooky side, October also brings us inwards. Shorter and cooler days mean less time outside and more time inside. Time spent in the comfort of our homes is ideal for looking inwards; at ourselves, our goals, our ambitions, and our regrets. No other time of year is quite as well-suited to inner work as the time we enter when October begins.
Inner work looks and means many different things to many different people. For example, you may choose to spend more time meditating or praying, doing inner child work, or journaling. Spells and rituals can be a beautiful addition to your spiritual care practice.
There are a plethora of spells and rituals, each as unique as the person performing them. Keep in mind that any spell or ritual you find can be tailored to you, and you can even create your own! Following are some fun spells to get you started. Remember that there is no right or wrong way to perform a spell or ritual, simply do what feels right for you!
These spells are just the beginning! The internet is full of ideas for just about any spell you could ask for. In addition, there are a variety of simple spell books available. However, please keep in mind that whatever energy you put out into the Universe comes back to you – as the saying goes, like attracts like. For this reason, be sure to keep your spells positive and well-intentioned.
