Enchantment. A spell wrapped in a noun. Three syllables. One state of being.
To live with Enchantment is to see beyond the brick and mortar that make up your home and into the magic infused within its frame. It is to peel back the layers of your day-to-day and search for that elusive energy that winds its way up your spine and outward into your life.
To learn from Enchantment is to listen to Coyote's call when he plays his tricks. He is a messenger really--there to make you listen. To trust in the power that is you, that is the earth; the power that is the beating of your heart, a rhythmic tattoo that forever pounds out your path regardless of how many times you try to stray from it. It is to absorb the wisdom of the moon and the stars, and the prophesying of the seeds burrowed deep in the dirt.
It is to conjure. To create. To believe that the bulk of your day--the most important parts--occurs in the moments and spaces others can too easily overlook. Because when you are looking for everyday enchantment, it finds you. Always. It nourishes you. It makes its home inside your skin and feeds your soul.
Yes. That's Enchantment. A spell wrapped in a noun, planted in the earth and nourished with moonlight, roots stretching to the underworld and leaves unfurling towards the heavens, creating a waking dream in the here and now if only you are open to it.
