How To Create A Bewitching Life


Recently, I was asked what a typical day was like for me. My day is very much like anyone else’s with an intention of keeping it simple. It suits me and how I like to flow through my days and is aligned with what I value. It's as close to perfect for me, as I can possibly get. And I feel joy daily. It’s important that we follow the rhythms of nature, so my schedule does fluctuate based on the seasons. For instance, I go to bed early and sleep later in the winter and stay up later and get up early in the summer. I hope you find my experiences useful in creating your own enchanted life. My average daily schedule:

6:00 Morning Meditation, journey, or journal writing 6:30 - 3:00 Work full-time 3:00 - 4:00 Workout 4:00 - 5:00 Personal time 5:00 - 6:00 Dinner & dishes 6:00 - 8:00 Hedgewitch Permaculture (writing articles, social media, creating classes, and actual gardening) 8:00 - 9:00 Hedge Witchery (rituals, spells, sigils, journeying, Book of Shadows) 9:00 - 10:00 reading 10:00 Bedtime You'll also find me going out with friends, snuggling with my familiar, taking care of my home, watching a movie, doing laundry, grocery shopping, creating, reading, and spending quality time with my sons. After a lot of observing, reflecting, and following the energy of my values, my life feels enchanted. It took a while. You may want to live your life completely different. That is as it should be. Do what brings you joy! When you find the schedule that works for you and your life, try it on for 30 days. Then work with the permaculture principles of observing, reflecting, and making adjustments to create your Bewitching Life. Are you feeling joy? If not, what needs to change to bring you joy? How to Incorporate Magic into Your Daily Life Start with what is important to you. Know what you value and make sure it becomes a priority. Make a list of what is important to you, OR what you want to make a priority in your life. Incorporate magic into your everyday activities

  • Sweep your floor and visualize brushing away negative energy.

  • Add lavender to your cleaning to create a soothing, calming atmosphere.

  • Ring a bell around your house to break up stagnant energy.

  • Take care with the energy that you bring into your home. The Universe is listening 24/7.

  • Work with your magical herbs in cooking, medicines, and tea.

  • Work with color in your candles and clothes.

  • Work with divination tools to understand yourself.

  • Spend time each day connecting to the still whispers of your heart, your intuition, and the Divine as you know it.

  • Pay attention to the phases of the Moon. The light that does not burn holds magic inside you and the garden. Observe how you feel, what's happening in the garden. Is there a correlation?

  • Sleep with lavender under your pillow or make a dream pillow.

  • Start your day with a morning "thank you" to Mother Earth and the universe.

Create a safe and sacred home and hearth

  • Keep your home and hearth clean and fresh.

  • Surround yourself with pets and flowers.

  • Create in your favorite way. The energy of the feminine is always a thing of beauty.

  • Fill your home with people who make you a better person. Your threshold is for positive energy only. If negativity enters, responsibly clean and cleanse afterward.

  • Burn incense and light candles to bring in the cozy and keep the energy uplifted.

  • Keep curtains and blinds open during the day and closed at night.

  • Open the windows to allow fresh air to blow through your space.

  • Have fewer objects in your house. Keep the ones that lift your spirits.

  • Always have a full bookshelf, and read often.

  • Plant your own sacred plants to gain a deeper understanding of the magical properties they hold for you—and you alone.

Get fresh air every day

  • Drive with your windows down.

  • Sit outside and read a book.

  • Walk or ride your bike to your destinations.

  • Dine al fresco, or have a picnic in the park.

  • Have an appreciation for the weather of the day—no matter what it is.

  • Get in touch with the land. Plant a garden and get in touch with the changes of the seasons.

  • Lie in the grass and cross the veil to hear the whispers of Mother Earth.

  • Show respect for nature by recycling, composting, and cutting back on your consumption. If you believe the earth is sacred, treat her that way.

An enchanted life is all about the choices you make and how you want to live this one precious life, the priorities you set, and following through on them. Magic is the intention you set that comes to fruition. We are wise women, it’s in our bones and DNA to live a bewitching life.
