It’ll be a week tomorrow since I’ve moved into my apartment. Moving was one of the most exhausting experiences ever (kind of like giving birth) and I’m so glad that parts over. Settling in has been a whole other experience. My camera’s battery is in one of the unpacked boxes, so as soon as I find it, I’ll share photos of what my apartment looks like.
I had an organizer to help me move in (thank you dad!) which made all the difference. Everything was unpacked except for a few boxes so there wasn’t chaos around me. One of the first things we unpacked were all my witchy/magickal items. <Sigh of relief>. I know many witch’s/pagan’s don’t need anything for magickal works, but my statues, candle’s, incense and other little symbolic tchotchkes make all the difference for me. Again, I’ll show you a photo of when I find the camera’s battery.
I feel like a proper witch again and even performed a small spell already. My one wish before I had moving here was to develop a great and strong circle of friends. I put it out into the universe and lit a yellow candle for energy, a blue candle for peace and a brown candle for stability. I asked the Gods for a sign that I was on the right path.
I decided to go to the Meetup site and look around to see if I could spot any groups that would appeal to me. I’ve had some good experiences in finding like minded people with Meetup so figured it wouldn’t hurt. I really wanted to join a book club since I devour books, but only found one that was closed to new members.
I did find one that’s meant for “wise women”! A woman who’s older than 40 is considered wise and one who’s younger is searching for “wisdom.” I guess I’m kind of a wise woman as I’m 47. Sometimes, I’m more the fool though. That’s happening this Saturday and I’m looking forward to it.
A lot of the core members of the group will be gone for Memorial Day weekend, but there’s going to be five women there, which is cozy for really getting to know others. I took finding this as a good sign, that the energy I put out there is being approved by the powers that be.
Did my ritual help me find this group or was it luck? I believe that it WAS because of my intentions and small ritual, which kicks my intuition out of slumber and gear which has been low since the whole house selling and moving process. My friend, Lyn from “Witch Blog” wrote an interesting post on intuition and what happens if we don’t pay attention to it. My intuition and a small ritual I did also lead me to finding this apartment. It’s when I close down my intuition that life seems to stand still.
I don’t know that I’ll find any new “BFF’S” or not from this group, but it feels really good to dust off my dormant magick. I’ll let you all know how the group went.
Any suggestions on what I can do to find new friends?
