Gut feeling, intuition or a soul call

soul work intuitive readings

Often the three are used interchangeably, but are they the same? I would like to break it down here and believe there are some marked differences between the three.

 A gut feeling

A feeling that something is either right or wrong. There is a sort of ‘tug’ in your solar plexus area, hence a gut feeling. I believe a gut feeling often presents with a tinge of doubt, ‘not quite sure’ signature to it if we really tune into that. A feeling of ‘it might, it could be’. It presents options, so to speak, therefore requiring a degree of discernment and a choice on your behalf. Because it is uncertain in its nature it is easy to ignore when it comes and it comes suddenly, as mind often overrides it due to an element of hesitation. A gut feeling often comes as a forewarning of some sort, an anxiety provoking reaction. I’d say never ignore a ‘no’ in your gut as it is led by fear, the function of which is to keep you safe. Fear here is not the enemy but a protector. It wants to look after you. When it comes as a ‘yes’, stay with it for a bit, do not jump into the vibration impulsively, as if acted upon too quickly can turn benefits into a not so desired outcome.

Intuition

This is of a vibration of deep knowing, often linked to divine inspiration like a flash, clear as a picture, image, colour, direction. ‘Yes, I know and recognise it’. That thing that writers often refer to as a muse or that thing that grabs them and keeps them in a flow. Intuition is definitive, only one thing. It is fixed in the moment.

Another side of intuition is a personal story revelation, a piece of your own destiny, if you like, like part of a series that is exactly right for you to see at a given moment. Intuition assists us in knowing ourselves better. Very timely usually and aligned with what you are asking. Source/universe linked.

Soul call

This usually produces a strong physical reaction. It is linked to a strong emotion like love, grief, sorrow or burning rage, something quite powerful, almost beyond ourselves, but very much part of us. The following reactions are examples: heart jumping out of your chest, breathing slows down or intensifies, can feel like something is dying in you (in a good way), you want to run for that thing that calls you (intense yarning). Soul calling is very impulse driven, animalistic and instinctual in nature hence very much embodied sensation. It is ‘I can’t live without’ type of feeling, an urgency to be more, to feel more, to jump out of the ordinary and join something beyond yourself that will lead you to your true self.

Spell casting in nature 

Now that autumn is upon the earth my spell casting season begins. During the next three months my intuition will be leading me in a direction of the best service to myself, others and nature at large and I will be weaving magic in my Nemeton to facilitate all needs and desires. 

The air is fresher and cooler now. It rained yesterday and I found myself exhaling with joy while standing outside allowing myself be washed with gentle water. On my way to the woods this morning I noticed how rich the air is with fruit, bark, earth, mushrooms and everything that is Gaia. I smiled and bowed to the trees at the entrance to my sacred space.

Prosperity spell

   
    
 For those of you who are familiar with my craft my magic is all intuitive and I work inside as well as outside whenever I am called to perform a ritual or cast a spell.

This is a simple spell to attract prosperity and success. All you need is a yellow candle, Basil and wording of your own choosing which you chant while your candle is burning. Bury remains in a place of your choice and Mote it Be!

I look forward to the season, festivities to come, divination and, of course, my beloved walks in nature. 

Blessings! 

Business success and prosperity Spell

spell casting in nature

To reinforce my increasing Fire energy of productivity this month (read my post on Fire element and productivity HERE), which is usually the case on a yearly basis, this morning I am drawn to doing a Success, Business spell. I feel that warm fire burning within me and a spell materialises within my awareness and I feel propelled into action. I sit down and create a spell using my intuition and collecting all the information that is flooding into me this morning and within minutes I know what to do and how. I select the wording I like, collect and prepare all the tools and decide to go out to do this spell work in the woods. You can certainly do it at home too, in your sacred space, whatever you are drawn to in the moment I always encourage going with that, always.

As I walk towards the woods I feel incredibly excited and buzzing with the electricity of the Sun, which is shining bright this morning. It is chilly, but I so very much like the cold. It invigorates all of my senses, I feel alive and ready for action. I walk fast and smile all the way to the place I also knew intuitively I was going to this morning. It is a different place I chose from my usual sacred Nemeton. I felt that, or rather intuitively knew, that switching places for your magic work sometimes can create new energies and it allows for the flow of energy to move freely when, perhaps, it is not confined always to one place. I also had a sense of this big hug, embrace of the whole archetype of the woods, expanding my sense of belonging, if you like. I wanted to include all of it within me. I bow, as I walk into the grove.

I am intuitively drawn to a tree root, which is perfect for this type of spell, as not only trees have been my most vital sources of guidance, support and lessons, but their roots are super important to me, as they are touching Gaia and her energy is flowing through these magnificent forest giants. It is that energy I want to tap into.

I create a mini circle and here is the spell in action: materials you use, the order you do things in, chanting, etc.

SPELL 

Yarrow – for Luck and Bay Leaf for protection and stability

A bee is a spirit animal of success, abundance and also vibes with hard work, perseverance and endurance.

It is a Fire and Earth spell based mainly on the male energies, which are around this time of the year.

Post-spell I am filled with this incredible joy of yet again having connected with the magic of the forest, Earth and nature. I put my arms around a tree and instantly images of luxurious nature come to me. I also had an idea of a new magic book I need to produce come to me in that moment. This is so beautiful in a felt sense I am bursting with joy. As I walk out of the woods I really do feel like I did some serious work and I bathe my face in the winter Sun standing still for a while before bowing to the grove saying ‘I love you so much!’

On my return I drink a blend of tea, which is ‘feminine’ in nature. Intuitively again and this is very important to me in my magic work, I am drawn to balancing the energies. As most of the work this morning had male energy origins and qualities I had to invoke were of Fire predominantly, I feel I need to balance them out with my feminine energy and I drink this tea, which is delicious and ahhhhhh. I have a deep sense of belonging, comfort and home. You can make your own blend of herbs to empower your feminine flow daily.

You can also perform this spell at home, at your altar or other sacred place. Look like this
