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.
I know this year hasn’t really been the “best yet”, especially in my case. Especially considering in the past few years I have realized I have become these following things;
Realizing my real feelings towards humanity
Denying a lot of my spiritual instincts
A control freak
When you sit back and think, you really kick yourself because of the fact that you know better than that. Of course, being human you realize that there is nothing wrong with reconizing that you have become what you are. It’s step one of realizing parts of yourself you want to heal. Which is why as a healer it’s important to realize your shadow.
I am going to admit to myself that this year alone, my shadow side has been scaring me…a lot. When you are realizing parts of yourself that you hide because you’re so used to being viewed in a certain way that you come to the point where you cage those parts of yourself. Of course, all cages have a weak point which in time your inner beast will find a way to escape. Usually they’ll escape at the worst possible moments, moments when you can end up hurting the people you love without realizing it. Worst of all, you end up hurting yourself the most.
Of course when you take the time to recognize those parts of yourself, you alone have the power to let them continue to consume you or face them head on to embrace them. Like the list I wrote above, I can change it to these following affirmations;
I am a hard worker with a very strong work ethic, which I will continue to do so I can provide a better future for myself and the people I love.
I recognize that I’m not too thrilled with most of the human race, but I will continue to love unconditionally.
I value my alone time and know when it’s time to withdraw and recharge.
I have become a lot more open to logic, which in turn helps me think rationally but I should remember to still trust my intuition.
The only person I control is myself and my thoughts and actions. Learn to know when it’s time to let go and move forward.
I channel my ability to prepare and save by putting it towards saving money for my future.
I need to take better care of my body and take the time to rest and listen.
It takes awhile to come and realize these changes, which is not something everyone is willing to do. Especially those who have hidden parts of themselves for so long that they feel they cannot be themselves except around certain people. My dear, when the time comes I hope you take the leap to embrace your shadow so in turn you can learn and heal from it.
