With Samhain coming, it's worth our while to discuss resolutions. At Samhain and at the mundane New Year, we have a tendency, and even a desire, to make resolutions. The resolutions are promises to ourself of things we want to accomplish in the coming year. Some people sound cynical about such resolutions because of how few of them seem to actually get fulfilled. Well, it does not have to be that way!
Wouldn't it be a good thing to make a resolution and see it fulfilled? It can happen, even the same resolution that others leave unfulfilled can be yours - and fulfilled! Do you really want to quit smoking? Do you really want to lose weight? Do you really want to get a better job? Do you really want to fulfill some other dream?
There's a way to go about it. And it does not involve a Pollyanna approach like some take. There's a way to grasp reality and bring your resolution to be. All with some basic principles and a healthy bit of selfishness.
You're not just making a resolution into a reality. You're also embarking on a spiritual exercise which will let you claim your magickal power - and more of it that you knew that you had!
And the result can be a chain-reaction of blessings and opened doors!
