The Magic of Ceremony
I am writing about ceremony because I am about to baptize the box my new scale came it. No, I'm probably not clear 'round the bend'. I just have a strong need to make changes in my life. Such as getting a handle on my weight. I was losing. I quit weighing. I gained 12 pounds in 8 months. I was about to get back into frequent checking up on my weight and I dropped the scale and cracked it. To really get the change back into my life I am doing several things to make that change part of my life. I announced it on Facebook. I bought a good scale. I found a good place to keep it. Now I am about to do a ceremony to help me accept fully and firmly that weighing myself is part of my life. If the wise magicians out there have a need for some habit or action that will improve you life I suggest you do some little ceremony about it. Blow kisses, light a candle, bury something, set up a shrine. Do some action that will remind you that you have made, and are making, a change for the better in your life. With all this public silliness or formality (what ever it should be called) I can hardly forget the change I need to make . Other won't let me if I do. So, if you need to do something different, I suggest you use the magic of ceremony to help you. May the spark be with you.
