First Magick Monday in I have had in no idea how long. Although, this was inspired due to a recent wine night with a good friend who had the usual pre jitters before an interview.
Don’t mind the messy room, but usually how I dress for an interview minus the jeans. Plus very old photo since this was taken during my office working days.
One of the major things I was thankful for when I was in college was we were required to take a resume and job interview course. I learned a lot of interview tips which landed me every non-massage related job I had over the years. Of course, that doesn’t mean I didn’t have a little bit of magick help when I did.
There are a ton of “land a job” spells out there, so I am not going into that part. I will repeat this advice, spells will not work if they are not given any direction. This means if you want the job, please send in the application or resume so your intention has a place to go.
A good place to start is to take some common sense approaches to the interview; mostly the usual dress for the part, direct eye contact, firm handshake, and asking the right questions. Now, for the magick you want to add.
When dressing for the interview, keep in mind of your color scheme. My favorite combo I like to use is black, purple, and red, but I mainly use that for more office positions. Use your instincts and research the position.
When giving direct eye contact, focus your intention on the interviewer.
When in giving a handshake, use the hand you have an easier time pushing energy with.
Got the jitters? Ground and center, plus focus on opening your throat and solar plexus centers. Stones in your pockets are an easy way to focus.
Essential oils are another way to calm the nerves and keep focused; my favorite combo to use is lavender, rosemary , and tangerine.
Also, drawing a sigil for mercury in the air for clear communication.
Most of these are very small, but effective ways to keep a clear mind and your intention focused on your cause. The main goal to keep in mind is to also let them know how you’ll play your part to help with the company as a whole. Please keep in mind this is to get your foot in the door, beyond that whether you plan to move forward to different positions is up to you.
So today was definitely a good one, I was very fortunate to win Pagan Fest tickets at Convocation this year. Ironically I was meant to come because I think I only put about three tickets in the raffle basket. Seeing how it was a easy trip to make it as well. The whole day was easy going, beautiful and just the right temperature. My daughter made instant friends.
Plus discovered the joys of boffers.
I was there for about three classes, one was taught by a very lovely lady whom I run into at Con every year whom the class was dedicated to a deity that spoke the most to her, the goddess Bridged. Plus learned a few new things on flame tending and how deities can survive over the years despite religious take overs. The next one was on movement meditation and alternative ways to meditate especially for those who are unable to keep still. Her daughter joined for a time too and when you look at it from a 12 year old’s point of view you can definitely see how meditating in a still state is not for everyone. The last one was get with your root, working with thorns in both a protective stance and a baneful way. Reminding us that magick is not always sunshine and rainbows.
I was also fortunate to get some work done by the massage therapist on site. In a way, he reminded me why I got into massage in the first place especially when he executed a perfect combination of energy work and manual therapy. For a small time period I was getting burnt out, but the more I keep going back to basics the more I realize why I do what I do today. Plus getting back to practing readings and energy work again.
Including picking up this lovely book today.
It’s funny how one simple outing can remind you why you follow the spiritual path you’re on. Plus giving my daughter a chance to see what her mom is into so that we may both go forward and grow even more together. Reigniting the flames can come in mysterious ways.
You would think I would be a lot better at keeping track of my own page and blog.
No matter, since the last time I made a post I have gone through a whole new series of events which I know is essential for growth. Particularly coming to terms with certain sides of myself, of career choices I want to make, and of goals I want to achieve. A few things I am realizing is I want to continue my path as a Massage Therapist, but I want to pursue other things as well. Lucky for me they compliment massage, so it’s the matter of time before I start looking for training. More so now since my daughter will be seven this year and it’s making it a bit easier now she is starting to gain more independence.
I am just going to keep it short and sweet. The cycle is now complete. I’m going to be regularly blogging again.
