Six years as Aurah. Six years since I took her hand and walked out of a fairy tale and into the Default World working with that name. While it was “just a school project” the premise was more than I could resist. To construct a ritual experience to birth myself (and two willing friends) as an Adept at Magic into this material plane? Vowing to do her best to make the world a better place. Vowing to make a difference. Vowing to choose love, choose kindness, choose to learn and practice virtuous magic. That’s the baseline orientation of “Aurah” and calling myself by this name has been and continues to be a powerful and simple verbal queue that helps me remember these vows over and over again. It’s been an extra-ordinary journey and one I reflect upon with sincere gratitude. Especially to my beloved teacher who authorized and encouraged such an audacious experience. Go big or go home, as I like to say!
Our annual dinner on the equinox was an exquisite delight. The meal the mister and I prepared was a hearty winter stew coupled with a vivid green salad to celebrate the balance between the seasons. I also made a couple of loaves of homemade bread to round out the meal. After dinner we read our birth story from Unified Field Theory of Oz and I passed out gifts as thanks, once again, for their willingness to do something magical. I’m eternally grateful to this crew for their intrepid spirits and open minds to come with me on a totally hairbrained journey. Happy New Year, Adepts!
May it be so!
