Time Out Tuesday: It’s Halloween! High Time to Let Your Witch Magic Fly!


Remind yourself of the woman you are & the magic you have! 


Maybe like me you were discouraged from displaying your womanly witchy powers, dabbling in sparks of magic that would heal the world, seeing beyond the everyday reality to the knowledge of imagination. 

Maybe a witch saw you for who you really are, took you by the hand and said “Now! The time is now to choose your magic.” 

Maybe it’s as simple as receiving a poem from Donna Ashworth to remind yourself of the woman you are: 


They call it the witch wound.

We were punished you see, broken, slain, for shining too brightly.

So we learned to hide that spark.

We learned to play it down, play dumb, play dead.

And we were taught to fear the light within us, lest it herald our downfall

But not anymore.

You are not a wicked witch my friend, you are quite simply, or complicatedly, a woman.

And your magic is not something you can choose, or lose.

It always is, and always has lived within you.

And you need no longer hide it.

I call it the witch wound, but the time to heal is here.


Let that magic out.” [~Donna Ashworth]
