Witch tip: Talk to Nature
Nature isn’t just a tool that we can work to our will– forming a relationship with the surrounding nature in your area will get you much farther than simply forcing and manipulating it to do as you say.
I’m currently on vacation in the mountains, and I am having a fabulous time, and I honestly can credit that to the nature around us.
When we first arrived, I stood outside and talked to the mountains. I told them that I hoped to be of no disturbance to them (as I realize that I am an intruder in their land), and I told them that I respected their beauty and strength. I told them that I hoped to show them only kindness and respect, and, in return, I asked that they protect me and my family from any harm that may come our way on our trip.
Every day that I’ve been here, I’ve taken a few minutes to talk to the mountains. I thank them, and I tell them what I’ll be doing that day.
This honestly works wonders. When I told them that I was scared of the bugs that kept coming into my room, bugs started respecting my personal bubble. When I asked that they hold off the storms while we were kayaking, the storms didn’t start until right after our kayak trip ended. When nightmares scared me in the middle of the night, the strength of the mountains comforted me.
Be kind and respectful to the world, and it will do the same for you.
