I’m proud to say that I did my Three Realms Yoga* yesterday and this morning. I went downstairs before anyone else, opened the curtains in the windows facing the back forest, and moved through my poses. It rained all day Saturday, and today is a sunny autumn day. The difference in weather mixed with two days worth of my yoga meant for some different focuses and perceptions. Saturday was all about water below and above. Today it was feeling the moisture in the Earth Mother and the warmth coming down from the sky. Both days had me looking ahead at transforming birch trees, resiliant and flexible in the wind. I’ve been reflecting on Autumn, Samhain, dying, and rebirth.
Starting the day outside or looking outside, focusing on the natural changes, helps me stay connected to the changing seasons and how that interacts with the holidays I celebrate. I’m working on visualizing the energies flowing through me as I move and feeling how the currents change with the year.
Later, I went to my altar and did a purification and consecration working on a bell I purchased at a local metaphysical shop. Although I did not perceive any negativity about it, I find that doing this ritual is a good practice and helps me connect with each tool’s inner spirit.
Working through Trance 1 is helping me to deepen my magical practice. I held the bell and opened myself up to learn her name and commune with her to instill my purpose into the tool. The omens after the magical working were very positive, and indicative of the wealth and joy this new tool will bring to my Druidry.
*I may have called it “Two Powers Yoga” in the past, but I’ve started to think of it differently.
