“I feel like I’m on the edge of a breakdown,” my friend, Lina, said.
“It’s good that now is the time of Mabon,” I replied.
We began a significant conversation.
Have you heard that Mabon is the witches’ Thanksgiving? This is the time of year where we count our blessings, and we express gratitude for positive things in our lives.
A good activity is to write a list of things you’re thankful for and your related reasons.
Mabon is one of the three harvest times of the year.
Here are three insights.
- Pause to Receive
If you remain stuck in your anxieties and worries, you likely will miss the blessings that are already present in your life. If you do not pause, you may keep blinders on and miss out on chances to receive.
For example, one time my friend, James, praised me for writing helpful blog posts. I just brushed it aside. I did not pause to feel good about two things: my blog posts are helpful and my friend was celebrating that detail. When I brushed James’ praise aside, I saw his face drop into a frown. I had failed to pause to receive.
What are you brushing aside? Is it time now for you to pause to receive?
- Become Open to Accept the Gift
My cat, Magick, is about 11 ½ years old, and he has been a true gift in my life. I had to become open to the gift of this special relationship with another being. To receive the gift, I needed to travel to the local Humane Society facility. I sat down among the kittens. I played with them and petted them.
Then two little eyes stared outward from a little kitty-cubby in the corner.
This little black cat strolled up to me. He sat down and caught my eye.
Over my shoulder, I heard the attendant say, “Oh, the black ones don’t get adopted.”
My intuition was clear. I said, “This one is getting adopted.”
I was open to receive the gift of Magick’s love.
What gift would be good for you to accept?
- Thank the Gods
One time I sat among friends in a park, and I poured a bit of wine onto the soil. My friend, Fred, said, “What are you doing?”
“It’s called a libation. I’m pouring this bit of wine as an offering to the Gods,” I said. Then, I expressed a sincere “thank you” to the Gods.
Perhaps, you might prefer to do a brief candle-lighting ritual.
Thanking the Gods is an essential element of the 3-part process: Pause to Receive, Become Open to Accept the Gift, and Thank the Gods.
What blessings are in your life? How will you thank the Gods for this time of Mabon—the time of harvest?
May these insights support your journey.
