The mythical magical Witching Hour
This entry was posted on September 22, 2013
I’ve heard of the mythical witching hour, I’m sure most of us have. We can barely get to adolescence without it popping up in one story or another. I also know a Wiccan who says the most magical time of day is 11pm. This got me thinking… maybe there is an element of truth in it. But I’m convinced it’s got nothing to do with a specific time. Partly because I don’t believe time exists in a classic sense. Partly because last night I found myself in a wonderful space where I could read for myself (I’m a professional psychic but reading for myself requires detachment to the outcome which is understandably difficult) so I was quite fascinated with this mental space I was in. It’s very similar to the state I was in when I used to have out of body experiences.
Anyway I’m getting side tracked, I think the reason that the witching hour is considered so magical is because of that beautiful space between alertness and sleepiness, where our minds melt a little and we are more in touch with our spirit, our energy, our essence.
A mind that is focused and calm but a body that is gentle and almost sleepy seems to make it easier for us to tap into our energy. That’s obviously not to say that we can’t do it any other time, of course we can and do. But I think it’s because it’s easier for people to be aware of it due to the alert/sleepy state that is unique to just before bed.
I’ve not done any official research into this beyond my own musings but with what we know about body clocks and what I’ve experienced with differing levels of sensitivity, it certainly gives an understanding for where the idea of a ‘witching hour’ may have originated.
Equally, it’s possible for some people that they get this heightened awareness in the mornings. Play around with it, test it out, when are you more sensitive? Last night I was most sensitive between 12.30-1.30am and for a lady who is normally happily asleep at 10/10.30… That’s pretty late!
