Abundance & Sweet Harmony- Festival of Fertility & Union
This is the most potent time of the year when the earth is awakening from winter sleep and the forces of nature are bursting with sap and new growth. The earth becomes green once again and this is represented in the life-force energy of the ‘Goddess’ & ‘Green Man’ which lives within us all.
It spirals into a creative force we can use to harness powerful intentions and balance our emotions in sweetness and passion. It is our magickal life force that lies buried and is full of potential…
This weekend we celebrate the ancient Celtic Festival of Beltain. This Pagan celebration of fertility and light marks the coming change of season to summer and carries a vibrant energy of new beginnings and potential.The Goddess and the Green Man archetypes are a powerful focus for your personal ritual or ceremony around specific thoughts and feelings. You can create your very own ‘Magick Spell’ to manifest positive outcomes in your life and create abundance.
I like to describe this little bundle of magick as being rather like the ‘Snitch’in Harry Potters game of Quidditch. It is a ball of pure energy combining Heart Chakra passion and Crown Chakra inspiration. It’s a focus for all your good intentions particularly as the moon ripens to full in the next few days . So first of all…..
Who is THE GODDESS?
She is our divine feminine soul – the Yin archetype of maiden, mother and crone. She has many faces and your experience of her is unique, beautiful and personal. We meet her in the deep green forests of our imagination as we close our eyes and drift beyond the physical realms. She is present in the landscapes, myths and legends of our ancient Mother Earth .
Who is THE GREEN MAN?
He is our divine masculine soul – the Yang archetype of apprentice,warrior and mage. He is also known as the ‘Horned One’ embodying gentle, powerful and protective wisdom. Meet him deep in the mossy groves of your dreams and amongst the deer and stags of the meadowland. Ask to embrace his vibrant energy when you sink your bare feet into the earth and remember your connection to the Spirit of the Land.
CREATING YOUR MAGICK SPELL POUCH WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO GATHER
–Drawstring Gauze bag or pouch (Gold or Red)
– Ribbon to bring two parts of your life together to be joined & healed
1. Find a quiet space where you won’t be disturbed and place all your items on a piece of Green Cloth (or velvet if you can find some.)
2. Make a circle around the outer edge of your cloth with the Star Anise, Pomegranate Seeds and Apple (sliced horizontally to show the five-pointed seeds at the core). These items represent abundance and prosperity and Apples are sacred fruit of the Goddess in Avalon where the sacred apple groves grow at the base of Glastonbury Tor.
3. Light a favourite Scented Candle and sprinkle drops of Rosemary, Bergamot & Lavender essential oils into a small dish of water and place on your cloth. Arrange the other items as you wish around the candle.
4. Close your eyes, take three deep breaths and see a Diamond White Light flowing from your Crown to the souls of your feet and into your aura. Bathe in the light surrounding you and feel light as a feather.
5. Allow your intention to form in your Heart Chakra and simply let the words form and flow onto your piece of parchment paper ( coloured pencils on hand.) Write them down, round and round in a circle that spirals inwards until you reach the centre-point and draw a five-pointed star there.
6. Use different colours, draw small symbols or shapes with the words as you feel appropriate and let each word amplify your new intention.
7. When you have finished writing, carefully roll up the small piece of Parchment and taking your piece of Ribbon, tie the ends together while thinking of two parts of your life you wish to join and heal.
8. As you then place each item into your Gauze Pouch (rolled parchment, citrine crystal, herbs, leaf, feather) gaze into the candle flame and visualise all you wish to manifest. Feel the emotion of this in your Heart Chakra.
9. Use your Voice to speak your new intentions aloud and tone the ‘Om’ feeling the vibration in your body. Play your Singing Bowl or gently hum to create resonance. You are weaving your spell with the energy of intention and sound. This sacred combination is a powerful totem to help you manifest your dreams and goals.
10. Every New & Full Moon you can take out your Magick Spell Pouch and recreate your ritual of intention. Always remember to surround yourself in diamond white light as you create your ceremony.
