Imbolc and the Plow

Imbolc is about the slow return of light to the earth and in my children's story I talk about the quest that the Young Sun King goes on to find the answer to that.

But I don't want to talk about us going on a quest today. Instead I wanted to talk about what else this Sabbat is about. This is a time that in some places they began to plow the Earth and prepare to plant seeds for the year's harvest. So my question is what have we done to prepare for the things that we want to manifest in the rest of this year and in years to come?

This is probably the most important step. Even more important than sowing seed. If the ground is not plowed then the birds will eat the seed as it lays on top of the Earth. And while that is good for the bird it is obviously not good for the harvest.

I talked to my kid a few months ago about magick. And the point I made is that magick is simply a tool, and that a spell doesn't work without some kind of physical work. For example a spell to get you a job most likely won't get you a job, if you don't apply anywhere.

So let me issue to challenge to all of us, myself included. Take a moment to figure out what it is that you want to manifest in the coming year and then figure out what steps you need to take before you start trying to manifest.

Blessed Be!
