Enchanting Our Daily Life in Small Ways

2 min

When we’re in healthy relation with the world both seen and unseen, our daily lives become infinitely more enchanted. Last night in my nocturnal prayers, I made a simple request to my guides... I asked if I could please see some frogs and toads up close and personal this year.

When we’re in healthy relation with the world both seen and unseen, our daily lives become infinitely more enchanted.

I’ve been working with the local land for a few years now, cleaning up trash, leaving offerings for land spirits, caring for the local wild animals by leaving out healthy snacks in safe places. As the opportunity arises, I try to show local neighbors the magic of this space we share with the more-than-human world, in hopes that it will make them care more for their local ecosystem.

Last night in my nocturnal prayers, I made a simple request to my guides.

You see, it’s frog and toad season here in Ireland. I’ve only seen them a handful of times when out on walks (often after asking my guides for signs). I asked if I could please see some frogs and toads up close and personal this year. 🐸

Just a few minutes ago my girlfriend walked in from running errands, and yelled for me to come to the door.

AND THIS LITTLE GUY WAS JUST WAITING FOR ME 🥺😍😍😍

He held stock still for 15 minutes while I took his portrait, and even let me gently pet him 🥺😭😍😍😍

In the years we’ve lived in Ireland, this has NEVER ever happened.

I believe he was trying to hide from the murder of crows that’s adopted our family and made our house a base camp (not kidding, I have nests above my window and they tap to tell me they’re hungry).

My boyfriend and I went on a quest with this little common frog, and relocated him to a nearby phantom lot that is being reclaimed by the land. A place with lots of hiding spots and puddles 💜

This special moment of enchantment is a sign that the relationships I’m building are in a good place, and to keep doing the work. It’s not the most reality-shaking peak spiritual experience; it’s quiet and close to the heart.

When students ask me how to confirm that they’re on the right path, I remind them to pay attention to the little things. Ask your guides to give you a sign. If the mundane world around you begins to show its enchantment, you’re on the right track. Patience and opening your heart to pour out (and receive) love is the key 💜
