“Echoed voices in the night
she’s a restless spirit on an endless flight
wooo hooo witchy woman, see how
high she flies
woo hoo witchy woman she got
the moon in her eye”
Once again All Hallows’ Eve approaches. For me, autumn has always been an exceptionally magical time. A time of change and renewal and new beginnings. Maybe it’s leftover from my old school days. Starting fresh, a blank slate and a whole new year ahead. Or maybe it’s the more obvious seasonal changes. The cool crisp air, the warm gold and crimson leaves and the sky, moody like a love-sick poet.
Whatever the reason, there is no denying that the fall air is electric and ripe with possibility! I feel more powerful and charged with intentions. In the light of possibility and excitement, I do not know fear. I have gained a new powerful insight.
There are two story’s that lie before each of us. These two story’s are always present, every day, and in every situation in our lives. One is a story of woe’s, fears and worry. It is the “what if I fall?” story that tells of misery, failure and devastation. The other story is one of endless possibility, celebration and joy. It is the “what if I fly?” story that tells of fulfillment and happiness beyond our wildest dreams. Do NOT let them tell you that the “what if I fall?” story is reality! If they try, do not listen! That story is just as make-believe and full of imaginary ideas as the other. The beauty, is that which ever story you choose to tell yourself and accept, will become your experience. And yes, you have a choice! EVERY. SINGLE. DAY! No one ever lived a joyful life because they worried (a.k.a. make-believed) about all the things that could go wrong. If you are going to put your faith in imaginary things, choose the story with the happy ending! This, dear friends is the true magic in this beautiful life we live.
