A magickal life is an inspired life. It’s true, you know. I’m a writer, so I live immersed in the worlds I’ve created, the stories that run through my mind, and since I also do nonfiction, the blog posts and articles that I’d like to share with the world. There was a time (okay most of 2011) when the muses weren’t speaking to me. I suspect it was because I was so wrapped up in everything in my own life that they felt they had no room to interject themselves into my life. It also could be because of some things in the writing world, as well as my personal life. But either way, I didn’t write much last year. That changed late 2011, early 2012.
You see, about that time I found my spirituality again. With all that had happened, honestly, I had no where else to turn but the Goddess. And giving myself, and my muse, over to her, made the plot bunnies as fertile as cute, fluffy bunnies can be. Plot bunnies are the cute fluffy bunnies you know. They’re not the ones that eat the heads off your marigold flowers or mow down the green bean shots in your garden, and can you tell I’m talking about real bunnies here? LOL! (We have roaming marauding bunnies where I live and woe to anything you want to grow. But I think we’ve reached an agreement. If I can have my garden, they can have everything else. *smiles*)
But seriously, back to the topic on hand, it was when I tapped into my spirituality, when I started living a magickal life that the inspiration came back. I thank the Goddess, those with whom I’ve had the chance to meet and learn from, and mostly the Goddess for that. I cleared away a lot, like weeding the aforementioned garden, and in the space, I allowed Her to fill it, and as a writer, what bigger blessing could she provide than inspiration. Story ideas. The kind of ideas that wake you up in the middle of the night and make you sit, fumbling for a pen and paper or a laptop so you can get started writing, those were the ideas that I had. And I’m loving it!
I feel the muse, the energy, and I know that I am the Source. Of course, She has something to do with it. But She also tells us as above so below, as within so without. If I weren’t open and receiving and inspired inside, then my outside world wouldn’t inspire me, and the chain goes on and on like a snake eating its tail (or my cat chasing hers).
For those looking for inspiration, I’d offer the same advice as I’ve given here. Get magickal. Get in tune. Get spiritual. When we connect our own inner source to the divine, then we allow ourselves to be filled, even as we’re filling others with the light of inspiration. It doesn’t matter if you’re not a writer. Artists, crafters, musicians, everyone, even if you don’t think you’re creative, uses this inspiring energy in his or her life. It takes inspiration to juggle a busy schedule with three kids and after-school activities. It takes inspiration to find a way to close the business deal. That’s creativity, baby, and the Goddess blesses all who chose to seek their own inner source.
