I apologize in advance that there will most likely be no Imbolc posts this year. I'm going through a bit of a magickal dry spell as I try to sort out some personal dilemmas. I desperately try to keep this blog professional and religion-relevant, but I just don't have much to post this month for various reasons.
My health and my mind just aren't in the right place. As of right now, I don't feel like I should be bringing that luggage to my spiritual space. I've had the door shut since early January and have refused to enter it for fear of letting the negativity cloud it. I've tried various removal spells and cleansing rituals, but nothing has lifted this fog. Quite frankly, I believe that you must meet your spells at least half-way in the real world for them to work. However, I have nothing on which to make that journey, to meet my spiritual work half-way. Doing a spell without the physical work is just going to be a dud. And that's all I've had this month: duds.
In the past, I was forced through dry spells because of the Circle. Whether I felt up to it or not, I had to practice for the sake of the group ritual. Since my resignation from the Circle, I just don't feel up to it. I'm sure the desire will come back eventually.
