Tips for Living Wicca: Give in to Primal Urges

My Tip for You Today: Give in to some primal urges.

I was cleaning and came across some of my old poetry, and my younger self left behind a reminder for me of how important it is to sometimes just say 'screw it' and indulge. Sometimes it's the only way to truly have the cathartic experience necessary to make oneself feel whole.

I'm not saying go totally nuts; don't hurt people, or put yourself in serious danger or anything. After all, it's all about balance. But we live in a world where society is cutting us off from some of those primal urges-- to let go, to dance, to hunt or camp, to put our hands in the dirt, to sing and chant, to make love.

Try to give in to some of those urges. Maybe you can't just chuck it all and run away to live in the outback or Amazon jungle, but can you go on a rustic camping trip for a week, or a hike one weekend? Can you go out in the yard under the full moon in the middle of the night with the porch light off and just let yourself go and move to your own tune?

Maybe you could indulge in something creative-- a painting, a poem, jamming with an instrument. Lose yourself in it for a while.

It's not always good to hold everything in... sometimes you have to let yourself be guided by instincts.
