A Lil’ Bit Witchy- Nature Walk

24th October 2023

Hello my witchy friends and welcome!
I hope you’ve had a blessed day!

As I sit here eating my tomato soup and toasted cheese sandwich, it made me wonder, how many people actually spend time in nature. Not just a walk through the bush, but stop, sit and just watch?

I have to admit, I do it quite often as I really, really enjoy the peace, the serenity and you get see so many little things that you would normally miss on a day to day basis!

This is your call to get out there and do it!

Even if it’s just your backyard.
There is so much going on out there that, unless you stop and just sit quietly, you’d never know it was happening!

We are very blessed with a beautiful seasonal creek that runs the whole length of our property. With recent flooding and heavy rainfalls, the insect and frog populations have boomed! I utterly adore just sitting quietly and listening to the frogs as they go about their business.

I have a couple of favourite spots along this creek.

There are a couple of little “ponds” where the frogs hang out, and some old gum trees, with their magnificent roots lifted above the water level, creating amazing little hidey holes for all sorts of critters.

I think we all need to learn to slow down and just “be”, rather than having plans all the time and busying ourselves with things that really have no benefit to our lives.

We need to give ourselves time without devices (As I say using a phone to take photots!) and enjoy the quiet and lack of responsibility, even if only for a few minutes!

Every witch is a collector of things, and I find nature always presents me with wonderful little treasures!

Today’s wander along the creek provided me with a baby magpie feather and some very unique little rocks, that I will proudly display on my altar!

I also discovered a huge mushroom growing by the creek bank, a lonely little dandelion (which I will nurture and harvest when the time is right) along with an abundance of plantain, bound for tinctures, teas and balms at a later stage.

The insects were buzzing and hopping about, mind you the mozzies can kindly keep to themselves! I found a beautiful little orb spider in the garlic chive flowers along with a fly (who’s name escapes me at the moment, but it’s a beneficial bug!), who happily continued their business while I watched on.

I think it’s important that we all get back to nature every now and then, to ground and centre ourselves, forget the stresses in your life, if only for a brief moment, and realise just how utterly perfect nature is.

The only thing I do advise, is walk with purpose, be gentle and tread carefully as there are many little beings under foot!

Also, remember, if you are taking something from mother earth, ask her permission first, you’ll feel if it’s right to take it, and don’t forget to thank her for her gifts. If you take from a plant, be sure to thank it and never take all of it, just what you need.

Kick off your shoes and feel the grass beneath your feet.
How does it feel?
What does it make you feel?

Look at the flowers around you, really look hard and notice the tiny little flaws, or the perfect shape of a petal.

Feel the bark of a tree, note the roughness, the rugged lines and the different colours.

Notice the way a tree is standing, reaching up towards the sky with every inch of it’s being.

Notice the pools of water and the sound it makes while it’s gently running away.

Breath in deeply and take in the scent of the gums or the smell of the fresh grass.

Beautiful isn’t it!

This, my wichy friends is the only time you’ll ever see it this way. For nature is ever changing. Though make sure to check in regularly and notice those little changes.

Life is meant for living, yet it’s also meant to be enjoyed!

Until next time my lovelies.

Blessed be everyone.
