What To Do With The Space Created After Banishing The Unwanted . . .

Good Evening My Witchy Readers,

Yes, my Muse has struck me again, whereas I was wondering what my discussion would be this evening, suddenly it hit me!  With the powerful Super Full Moons we have experienced these past two months, we are pretty well versed by now on eliminating and banishing those unwanted energies from our lives that no longer serve us.

Well, the full super moon has passed, and was two weeks ago.  And like every Yin has a Yang, every full moon which banishes, has a new moon which brings in. Yesterday, November 29th, 2016 was the new moon and it's power is still effective for a few more days and nights.  The witch does not simply throw out the unwanted clutter, no, she in turn then decorates with new flowers and lovely things to behold.

We, never want to create an empty vacuum. Because as vacuum's are apt to do, if left to their own devices, they will fill themselves up with whatever random energy happens to wander by!!  That is why once you have eliminated the unwanted, you must actively work and put effort into placing energies into that place in your life that is left open and empty by the banishment of the full moon work.

So, let's look, theoretically, at what you may have banished and determine what you may choose to replace it with. If you have banished a harmful, bad habit such as smoking a nice converse would be perhaps adding an exercise or meditation session into your daily life. The closer to the counterpart the converse, on the same level, in this case on the physical plane is most beneficial.

Perhaps your banishment took place on the emotional plane, and you have disengaged yourself from an unwanted relationship, be it romantic, professional, social or an acquaintance,  which you can then fill the space by surrounding yourself with loved ones, current close friends, socializing and bringing in new friends and happier relationships. Go out of your way to spend time with others that make you feel good about yourself and give you a positive outlook and insight into your life. Others see it in you, take the time to see you through their eyes and see the real you, the way they see and love you.

Perhaps you left an unhappy job, or even retired from a good job. It is important to fill that "space" with a 'job' of sorts, even if it is walking in the park every day and taking pictures of nature and birds. Continuing to get up every day at the same time, planning to do things every day will make the transition smooth and positive.

If you find yourself with a space in your life and you are not sure how to fill it, burn a candle for any of the above or for any of these on the new moon phase and ask the Goddess to help you find what you desire.  Then, most importantly, try lots of new things. You don't have to commit to any one thing. Or any one person. Go on a few dates and see how it feels. Take a painting class. Take a singing lesson. Sit in on a book club, or a quilting club, or take a swim class.

Visit your local pet shelter and sit with some pups or kitties, but if you do this, realize you may very well be taking one home and be prepared for that. Take a class on indoor gardening and bring home a plant or two or three.

Burning a simply candle will not, on it's own, change your life. But it can be a first step. Then you burn it on a moon, in this case a new moon, which is the second step. Then speak with the Goddess, honestly and ask Her to help bring your heart's desires to light, third step. Then, most importantly, the fourth step .  .  .  go out, and live life!

It is important to give yourself a bit of time to let go of that which you have banished. The two weeks between moons could be that time or take more if needed. Then the new moon arrives, if not this month, then the next month, and then start living your life again. You may be pleasantly surprised what you thought you had lost has been replaced with so much more.

I know, I do, that the time we spend with energies that are not good for us may seem like a long time, but you can bring that time to and end, when you are ready. That time, might be today. A little magick can help you on your way. Start at the new moon. If it doesn't manifest within 28 days, by then it will be the next new moon, then do another spell or burn another candle. Visualize how you'd like your life to look like and before long, it will happen. Magick always happens, I promise!

In honor of this past Super Moon and the changes it has made within me as well as you, I will be changing my sign off for my blog for the future .  .  .  I will always wish you Peace and Happiness but I will send out the energy, to return threefold, to always .  .  .

Live, Laugh, and Always Love!!!
