The best witch hacks are simple. This is a new fave, and it’s the journal writing magic. Want to access the more intuitive part of your brain? Or jolt a one-track neural groove regarding a particular topic?
Wait until Mercury is in Gemini or Virgo and give this magical journal writing technique a go.
Just in time for Mercury (back) into Virgo, i have a spooky genius new journal writing technique. My wise Libra naturopath turned me onto this, and i am a convert. We don’t even really know the name of it, but it is basically ‘non-dominant hand’ something or rather. You may already know of it or a variant – it is probably a version of automatic handwriting, which is supposed to be magic. I call it Spooky Genius.
So you get your journal, book of shadows, or a blank notebook and call to mind a dilemma or two. This sort of technique is brilliant for issues that niggle away at you or which your conscious, logical thought is stuck in a groove on. Divide the page into a left and a right column. Then write down a few questions around the dilemma. Let’s say you are stuck on why you are finding it challenging to confront a demanding or inequitable business colleague. Write down questions like: Why am I so uniquely affected by the behavior of X? What is stopping me from changing this situation? Is this somehow triggering a deeper psychological dynamic and if so, what. Why does X treat me poorly? What can i do not to solve this? Just several pertinent questions, whatever you like.
Then you write the answers to these questions with your non-dominant hand in the other column. In my case, i am left-handed, so I scribbled some answers with my right hand. It seems SO simple – TOO simple, really – but what comes up may amaze you. Does it work by accessing a different part of the brain? Subconscious? Spirits? Who knows? But it works. Try it and let me know how you go? The shift of Mercury back over the Eclipse Point and into Virgo over the weekend is IDEAL for writing, thinking, scheming, planning, and trying out journal writing magic.
