THE SOA 30 DAY CHALLENGE

Days 6-10

By Robin Corak

Day 6: Scry! (At least try!) The act of scrying is intimidating for many people. Unless it is something you have learned or it is something that comes naturally to you, the pressure to see something in a bowl of water or a crystal can be overwhelming and frustrating. I think much of this pressure is due to the preconceived notions we have about scrying as well as the pressure we put on ourselves to be good at it. The truth is, scrying isn’t for everyone. Just as true is that many people give up on it before giving themselves a true chance to make progress. The first thing to keep in mind in scrying is that while you may “see” something, you may get information in other ways as well, such as through a knowing, a feeling, or hearing. Try different kinds of scrying. It may be that water doesn’t work well for you but scrying in a candle flame, the embers of ashes or the smoke from incense provides results.

Day 7: Avalon Within. Pick one activity from Avalon Within and journal about the experience.

Day 8: Visit Glastonbury! I realize that you may not be able to just pick up and go to Glastonbury, England but you can do a visual tour from the very own comfort of your home. You can even visit Glastonbury in your pajamas. How cool is that? There are many websites that have images and/or 360-degree visuals of Glastonbury and its sacred sites. Be sure to visit places such as the Red and White Springs and the Tor. While you are at it, why not hop on over to Wales and visit the sacred sites mentioned in The Mabinogion?

Day 9: Goddess Challenge – Ceridwen. Do the same activities you did on Day 2 but for Ceridwen.

Day 10: Walk a Labyrinth. Walking a labyrinth always seems to ease my mind and put things in perspective. To find a labyrinth near you, go to https://labyrinthlocator.com/. Or, if you prefer to stay at home, create a makeshift labyrinth using rocks, candles, crystals, anything you can think of. One of the best gifts I ever received was a drawing of a 3 circuit labyrinth in permanent marker on a sheet. Whenever I feel the need to walk a labyrinth, I can simply spread out the sheet on the floor or my yard and begin walking.
