Overview

You are precious. Your body is precious. Your mind is precious. Your heart is precious. With your actions, with your connection to yourself, you create a foundation that can weather all that comes before you. Perhaps you have been told otherwise. Perhaps you have believed otherwise, that somehow, some way, you are less than worthy of love and care. Perhaps you know you are worthy of love and care and beauty, but need to be reminded or given permission. I want to tell you that your health, your well-being is valuable. And the actions you take to care for your beautiful self are a gift and a sacred prayer of intention. Welcome to Practically Pagan - An Alternative Guide to Health & Well-being in which we will encounter ways to care for our health and explore strategies to support ourselves as magical and powerful beings. An Alternative Guide to Health and Well-being is the second volume in an exciting new lifestyle series from Moon Books, which offers body, mind and planet-friendly alternatives for everyday tasks.

Introduction

You are precious. Your body is precious. Your mind is precious. Your heart is precious. With your actions, with your connection to yourself, you create a foundation that can weather all that comes before you.

Perhaps you have been told otherwise. Perhaps you have believed otherwise, that somehow, some way, you are less than worthy of love and care. Perhaps you know you are worthy of love and care and beauty, but need to be reminded or given permission. I want to tell you that your health, your well-being is valuable. And the actions you take to care for your beautiful self are a gift and a sacred prayer of intention.

With each breath, with each choice you make, you can call back the parts of yourself that have wandered away from knowing health and wellness. With each step toward what you want to feel and be, you create a song of belonging fully to your power.

No matter how you identify and no matter what your beliefs might be (if only for this moment), you can step fully into the shape of your skin. You can fill up the spaces of your being and the stretch of your authentic self — you can move fully into your life. It doesn’t matter to me if you’ve been lost or not.

It doesn’t matter to me if you’ve made mistakes or you’ve fallen away from a path. It doesn’t matter to me, as Rumi says, if you’ve broken your promises a thousand times. You can begin again. You can commit again. You can arrive in this precious moment. For you are a precious moment.
