I think all of us contemplate those questions at one time or another. I know I do. And until recently, I didn’t feel as if I had the answers. For me, happiness boils down to one simple thing: If you know you are on your path, then you are happy.
What does that mean? And how do you know if you’re on your path? And what is your path?
Your path is this: the work you’re meant to do, the gifts you’re meant to share with the world, and the joy you derive from doing so. If you know you’re doing what you’re meant to be doing, giving what you’re meant to be giving, and coming from a heart-centered, joy-filled place, then you, most likely, are happy.
Seems like a far away from the hectic and depressed life I had even eight or ten months ago, and I bet for someone reading this blog, he or she is thinking the same thing. That’s a dream. That can’t happen now.
But it can. Now I’m not going to sit here and say that it happens with the swish of a magic wand. As pagans, though, we’re usually used to working magick. And there’s nothing to say that we can’t work magick to help us find our path and our bliss.
Here are ways in which we can do that.
1. Meditation and ritual to help us learn what we truly want to do in life.
2. Rituals to help us release old hurts, feelings, slights, or baggage we’re carrying around.
3. Rituals to help us realize self-love, so that we have a full well to offer others.
4. Rituals to help us honor diety, because coming from a place of blessing and worship is moving toward a heart-centered life.
5. Rituals to help us honor the seasons and the Sabbats, because when we see the cycles in nature, we can see them in our own lives.
What rituals are you doing to help you find your happiness?
