This is the first of a series of suggestions for re-enchanting your life, one pixie kiss at a time. The introduction is here, and you can watch the path unfold here.
This week, take your camera for a walk.
Pick a day when you have an hour or two to wander and go for a walk. In the Northern Hemisphere it is still cold this time of year, so respect the powers of Jack Frost and wrap up warm… and go out anyway.
Look around you.
Breathe in the beauty of the world.
Notice the little pieces of nature that peeks through the cracks in the pavement, or the majestic sweep of tall buildings, or the charming creepiness of abandoned buildings. Notice the expanse of sky above, or the crumbling stone beneath your feet. Notice the smells and sights and sounds, and take pictures. Really focus on the world around you.
Opening to the world opens you to the layers of magic in the world, the realms which lie just below sight, just below the obvious.
Open to beauty, open to noticing, open to wonder.
Use your camera to focus your self on the world… and open to the possibility of the Fey beings that surround you. The conscious blueprints of nature, the souls of the world.
If everything is a vibration, and vibration is sound, can you feel, in your bones, in your heart, the song of the Fey?
Invite your Faery guide to join you as you wander and wonder. Be open to their presence. See what happens.
When you get home, I’d love to see your pictures, hear your stories… come play in the garden, if you’d like to, leave me a footprint in the comments.
I will be posting Pixie Kisses, small steps you can take to re-enchant your world, here, once a week for the next four months. Take them and play with them. Let the ideas inform your work and play. Find them under the category “Pixie Kisses”.
And, if you wish, you can join us on Facebook in the Enchanted Grove for sharing and discussions on the enchantment you find!
