I think it’s pure brilliance that Halloween happens in autumn! Connect these two ideas – Jack O’Lanterns and velvet cloaks and you’ve got wild magic, sister! Gothic fantasies made me fall in love with Halloween! It fits my imaginary world of medieval castles, floaty white gowns, Victorian houses and magic spells! The weather transition and Halloween seem to be made for each other! Think cooler wind and willowy figures! Think autumnal sunsets, anticipation for magic and mischief, friendly ghosts, flying broom sticks and supernatural vibes all around!

Halloween Creativity and Magic Halloween is one holiday that is filled with so much creativity, imagination and fairy dust! It’s one occasion where you can dream without limits – flying on broomsticks, diving with mermaids, maybe even dating the Prince of Darkness, and being driven by a pumpkin carriage! October, in general, prods me to create a lot of art. As I get cozy indoors, it’s hard not to be inspired to paint, craft, journal or bake! My space will be buzzing with distress inks, ribbons, acrylic paints and the work! My kitchen will see an increase of spices, herbs, and pumpkin recipes of all kind. I create more, I journal, doodle, and write. Dears, there are plenty of really awesome, highly nourishing grown-up Halloween treats that can be had! And here’s my list of 12 things that will help you make Halloween magic!

Yea, cats wearing black hats included! Whether you want to steep in self care with a little fairy dust sprinkled in it or if you want to give spirituality a Wiccan twist ( I did 20 years back and found my big magic in life!), I took on 22 long days to research the best tools we can enjoy this coming Halloween! During uncertain times such as this, I believe that self rituals can’t be more important as a restorative part of our day! Enjoy the season as Mother Earth cools down. She’s allowing us to also slow down, be more retrospective, focus on our inner growth and heal. While we’re at it, why not add some whimsy twist to make it more enjoyable? That way, we can look forward to our self care rituals and make our home a place of healing and also fun. 0 0 vote Article Rating Related posts:Life Begins at 40: Why I’m Grateful & Loving MidlifeStart Over After Forty: It’s Not Too Late for a Life ResetThe Science of Self Love: How To Have A Love Affair With Yourself
