I survived the scary movie, barely. "Paranormal Activity 2" was spooky and disturbing. If you like "realistic" ghost stories, this one is pretty good. Slow to start, but definitely picked up speed. I only made my husband stop it once for a short break to recover from one particular hideous scene. Give it a screaming.....er...I mean screening!
|Scene From Paranormal Activity 2|
As we begin a new week, with all kinds of things to do, places to go, the Full Moon and sundry tasks I wanted to share something I am meditating on. Sometimes we get caught up in our mundane lives and our magickal lives don't receive the fullness of our attention. Has this happened to you? Too busy or otherwise occupied to cast a spell, write up a new ritual or just working within a magickal context. Sometimes feelings of inadequacy keeps us from working magick. For whatever reasons, there are times you think you just can't do it. I have been reading a book recommended by Aine over at The Deepest Well blog called "The Goodly Spell Book Olde Spells For Modern Problems" by Dixie Deerman and Steven Rasmussen (published by Sterling Publishing Co., Inc. New York NY, copyright 2005). In the chapter titled "Trust Your Magical Instincts" there is a wonderful paragraph that struck a chord with me. Maybe it will do the same for someone else.
"Trust yourself to be able to work magic. If you ever feel inadequate to the task, banish the thought. Remind yourself that you have innate magical talents and myriad protective and spiritual instincts waiting to be tapped and sharpened." (page 53, The Goodly Spell Book)
Keep this in mind, think about it and remember it. Don't doubt yourself. It's a goodly thing.
