Bringing a little magick to the office

I work from home running my own businesses and since we moved to our new house I’ve taken over the conservatory as my office space.  Paul and I have always been very clear that our home has to be multi-functional – it has to combine business and family – so during the day I use our dining table.  If I’m reading for a client it gets covered in Tarot cards, pendulums and candles.  If I’m working on websites then the table becomes my desk with my lap top, sometimes printer and a cup of coffee to hand.   When it’s time to stop then everything gets packed away and family life commences.

I love my adopted working area.  It’s light, airy and puts me right in nature without getting wet and cold.  I’m more creative, inspired and happy.  I’ve attached a couple of photos – one of my ‘office’ area and my daily view of the garden (as taken last month before even more flowers bloomed).

It hasn’t always been this way.  From the age of 17 to last year, just before I turned 34 last year I worked in an office.  I stayed at one place for 15 years and can’t really say I enjoyed it very much (note to self:  stupid, stupid, stupid) then I worked for a small organisation where I had an office to myself.

As I became more involved in my spiritual path I really disliked the whole office environment – the artificial lighting, windows that don’t open, endless chatter, constant telephone calls – it’s really not the best place to be content and creative. 

So I began to bring little piece of myself into the office.  I put little pieces of clear quartz around my computer, changed my computer desktop to something more personal to me, had calendars of nature scenes and added photos of my children.  At one time I even had a little plant.  I’d also do some room cleansing when I had a few moments to myself.

Doing small things like this can make a big difference to your attitude of being in an office. It helps energy flow which then lifts your spirits and enhances your creativity.

So if you’re working in an office, give it a try.  What do you have to lose?

Poppet Money Me

If you’ve read my other blog you’d know that Paul and I spend Saturday night making poppets.  If you haven’t read it click here and you’ll know what I’m talking about 🙂

Just thought I’d give you an update on how my money poppet is performing.  As of last night I had gained a new client who wants a website (this is through Rosmerta), sold another Pendulum Book and got a new Tarot Minutes client.  This adds up to £294!

This isn’t bad going 🙂  But I do have to work for the money – websites don’t design themselves, readings need to be done and I’ve already put in oodles of time for my pendulum book.  That’s the thing with magick – the Universe delivers but be prepared to put in a little work yourself.  Even winning the lottery requires a purchase of a ticket 😉

Yet another blog…..

pagan_kitchen.jpgOne of my greatest loves is cooking.  I’m really content pottering around the kitchen making dinner and creating cakes.  Paul and I cook from scratch every day – my cupboards are filled with ingredients; you won’t find a single ready made sauce or TV dinner in our house.  To me, the kitchen is where the real, everyday magick is done.

I set myself several goals this year.  One of them was to revamp my pendulum book (tick that one off) and another was to write a practical kitchen witch book.  Well, I’ve begun my book!!!  To keep me on track I’ve started a new blog dedicated to kitchen witchery – I’d love you to come and have a peek!

Being a kitchen witch isn’t just about being a dab hand with a whisk and a palette knife. It’s about reconnecting with the Earth through her wonderful bounty (what is more glorious than fresh ingredients) and using them to create and nourish. It’s also about learning – knowing the healing and magickal properties of herbs – and using the knowledge to benefit yourself and other.  It’s about creating magick and it’s about having fun!

I love being a Kitchen Witch!
