Last year I wrote a “What I am up to this fall” blog post, so I thought I should keep the tradition alive and do a fall update today. Also, today happens to be Halloween/Samhain/Full Blue Moon. The witchy folxs have much to celebrate!
For me, the call right now is to keep it simple and to be more mindful about how and what I share.
In the age of social media, I have found myself snapping a photo of my tarot cards even before I interpret them for myself. The times I have caught myself doing that, I stop and notice what I am about to do and ask myself why do I feel the need to share? I have stopped myself from sharing many times, especially those times when I feel that I am sharing just for the sake of sharing.
Other than reading and working with the tarot I have also been enjoying journaling and I want to share more about that side of my practice. One of my to-do activities is to organize and display my journals in a better way.
Lately, I have noticed that I kind of take writing for granted. Although, it’s such a big part of my life, for me it feels like taking a shower or brushing my teeth, it’s just something that I do without much thought. But because it’s an important part of my spiritual practice, I want to approach it with more reverence and ritual.
A few days ago I was reflecting on how I don’t put a lot of thought into the tools I use for writing. I will usually find any random notebook to write in. I realized that I do this because I don’t feel worthy of a more luxurious writing experience. As soon as I identified that belief, I knew that some nicer journals were in my future.
Writing with simple and easy to find tools is what I have done all of my life and is totally fine. Although I hope to get more fancy tools, I might find that the simple tools are more my type. I don’t know if anyone who does not have a writing practice will understand my dilemma 😅, but this is where I find myself currently.
I will explore other ways to add more reverence and ritual to my writing practice and I look forward to sharing how that is going.
During the first half of October I joined a collage challenge on Instagram. It was a lot of fun and I am glad I participated since I always felt that collage was something I could not learn/do.
I am working on a small creativity journal/workbook that I will share here in my blog in the next few weeks, stay tuned for that!
I have also been enjoying making graphics on Canva. Like the ones below.
I am working on a couple of oracle cards sets which I hope to share with you all soon.
I have neglected by podcast in the last month, but I hope to record at least 1 episode per month, you can listen to my current episodes here.
Thank you for reading my fall update. I would love to know what you have been up to in the comments!
