Each person’s spiritual and magickal journey, just as the very being who walks that path, is unique. That said those things that resonate with you may be very different to that which resonates with another being, yet the awareness gained is universal.
Let’s take for instance the popular TV series Charmed, Games of Thrones and Dr Who – none of which have resonated with me. I know people who loved these series and would talk avidly about them and insist that I watch them. Granted, I did at some point attempt to sit through an episode of each of these shows, and granted, I was also watching it with the monkey mind’s thoughts in full swing.
Now as I accept and acknowledge who I am for all that I am, I am getting to know what belongs to me. This Bank Holiday just gone, I watched a TV series on Netflix called Always A Witch (Siempre Bruja), which tells the story of a time-travelling witch who escapes death and finds herself in modern day Cartagena, Columbia. It was a light and entertaining series, which had numerous messages about magick, witchcraft, women and true love.
Always A Witch clicked for me in a number of ways – firstly, the lead character and witch, Carmen, is a woman of colour; the colourful beach setting and colonial buildings captured my imagination evoking scents, tastes and views of holidays I had been on; and then there was the lovely soundtrack of Columbian grooves that made me get off my chair and shake my thang – let’s just say the programme stirred my senses, captivated me, and served as an appropriate outlet to, quite frankly, deliver the same messages of Charmed in a format that clicked with me on every level.
This is what I mean when I say the awareness gained is universal – the messages are the same – but the magick in Always A Witch was the best fit for me. As I embrace my true self and begin to feel comfortable in my own skin, so to speak, I am able to recognise what belongs to me and to see how all of those things that I have always loved since I was a kid and a teenager wasn’t alien to me. So everything that I liked – movies, music, food and even the clothes I wore – it wasn’t me just “being cool” as the monkey mind had perceived it to mean, it was just a reflection of who I am. Yes, even those humble hoodies that I loved to wear as a teen – not that much far apart from a magick user’s cloak really.
Interestingly, my entertainment choices have changed as a result of embracing my unique DNA as it were. I always felt the urge to watch The Mentalist when it first aired in the UK. But sitting down to watch a programme, especially one that resonated with me on a soul level, at that time pushed the monkey mind to the forefront with its nonchalant, stir crazy and dumb-ass attitude and so I did not sit through an episode for longer than 10minutes. Now, I’m playing catch-up and find The Mentalist series insightful and witty, and especially pertinent as I embrace my own psychic powers.
So next time you’re by the water cooler at work and someone is talking about a TV programme, a book, a podcast or something else, you’re not “odd” if it doesn’t resonate with you. Just be aware that you are a unique being, and if there is a message for you from your higher self, rest assured she or he will bring it to you in the form that touches the magick in you.
