Owl Spirit Guide, Meanings, Symbolism and Messages

63737991-720px

Symbolic meanings for the owl are: – Intuition, ability to see what others do not see.

The presence of the owl announces change, capacity to see beyond deceit and masks & Wisdom.

These birds love to sit quiet and still so that they can observe their surroundings. Therefore, this birds’ message to you is that you may need to remove yourself from the noise of life. Become still and silently observe your surroundings.  Moreover, slowing down and becoming stable will allow you to access the wealth of information and Owl meaning that surrounds you. Whenever this bird is present, it will share its ability to see what others may miss. In other words, owl meaning prompts you to open your eyes and truly examine how things are. You will be surprised by what you can suddenly see. As an example, other people’s motives may now become clear to you. External appearances will give way to the truth and meaning hidden beneath.

Alternatively, the Owl symbolism is often thought to come to those who need to let go of some part of their life that is no longer needed. With this in mind, owl symbolism cues you to listen carefully to your inner voice and allow yourself to be guided to recapture the knowledge of your correct path in life. This bird’s senses can pierce through shadows, beyond fear and darkness, through to the other side that promises light, happiness, and knowledge.

Owl Totem, Spirit Animal

Those of you who have Owl Totem as your totem animal will find yourself drawn to the dark and prefer to work during the night hours. For this reason, you have no fear of the occult, darkness or magic and often have the gift of prophecy. Also, your wisdom gives you the power to extract secrets from those around you when you listen to its voice inside of you. As a result, you will hear not what others are saying, but what they are thinking and feeling by detecting the subtleties of voice that others cannot understand.

People are unable to deceive you because you can see into the darkness of others souls. Most people with Owl totem are also clairvoyant because of this ability to observe and empathize. Since it can be terrifying at times, you have to learn to trust your instincts about people.

The owl is associated with witchcraft in a number of European and some American Indian traditions. Witches would often take the owl as an animal spirit guide.

In Greek mythology, the Goddess Athena, goddess of the wisdom and war, was represented as an owl. It is said that the Romans believed that someone would reveal all their secrets during their sleep if an owl feather was placed near their pillow.

Manifesting your goals.

2f3e526dc1978720e07537684fd523d6--grateful-quotes-grateful-heart

Working as a psychic, I often deal with clients who are trying to manifest new opportunities and create a better life. I have a few rituals that can be really effective at getting people into this mindset and help to bring about their dreams, whether it’s attracting financial abundance or making more like minded friends. I hope that they help you attract all the wonderful opportunities that you’re after.

Is your mind getting in the way of your highest good?

Putting together a plan of action may be second nature for you, but when it comes to manifesting, it’s best to surrender and let your mind be open to all possibilities. Who knows the Universe might have something better in store for you. When you begin trying to manifest a new job, lifestyle, partner or anything else, don’t latch on to too many details. Try to remain open and flexible.

 Watch out for the signs.

Be more present and watch for signs from the Universe. When you’re trying to make a big change or bring something new into your life, the Universe will begin to send you guidance. Watch for synchronicities, or meaningful coincidences, repeating numbers and songs are common signs.

Try to curb those judgmental or negative thoughts.

When creating magic you’ll have more chance if you make the decision feeling positive and optimistic. If someone or something makes you think negative, try to avoid them or the situation, or use mindfulness to redirect your thoughts. If you’re going through a rough patch, remember that you can be sad and still genuinely grateful for the blessings in your life.

Keep your intention in mind.

Writing a reminder of your goals in your journal or just talking to a close friend or relative going over your ideas are great ways to stay proactive. This keeps your focus on the prize, so to speak.

Be aware of your claircognizant abilities.

Pay special attention to those thoughts that seem to pop into your mind “out of nowhere” or any large chunks of information that seem to appear rapidly.

Keep your mind focused with rituals.

Rituals work best when you enjoy them, so if you read about a ritual, don’t be afraid to personalise it in some way. With this full moon energy still going strong it’s a great time to start.  Here are couple to get you started!

Create a nature altar.

Go outside and collect anything that your drawn to this can be sticks, rocks, leaves, flowers, find a spot on where you can assemble your altar. Then as you arrange the objects think about your goals and silently ask that the Universe come to your assistance. Leave your altar out for the week, and every time you look at it, thank the Universe for its help with your manifestation goals.

Perform a candle and journal ritual.

Set aside some quiet time say 15 or 20 minutes when you know you will not be interrupted, light a white candle to open your ritual, get out your journal, but instead of writing down what you did earlier in the day or what’s been on your mind, continue to let your mind be blank. Silently ask the Universe or your guides what you most need to know right now about your goals, try to let the ideas and words come through you. This is known as automatic writing.

You should see something written on the page when you finish, hopefully they are things that have never thought of that before. You might see some fears that you were aware of but didn’t want to admit to yourself or others. Once you’re done, sit and gaze again at the candle’s flame, and then blow it out to close the ritual. Be sure to silently thank your spirits and your guides for any ideas or words of wisdom that came through.

Wishing Stones

8f4dac5876d8022f92b08b4a2e2945fe.jpg

I love wishing stones if you take your time with them they can be a lot of fun especially  if you just want to throw caution to the wind and wish big. I often find them while walking around outside I then save them for when I feel that I need a little luck.

Over the years, I have found quite a few of them I call them my rainy day wishes.

I’ve had a few rainy days where I turned to my wishing stones, but before I use the wishes I’d been saving I wanted to make sure I used them to their fullest potential. After some thought, I decided on these three methods, and now I want to share these with you.

The common lore on wishing stones is that they can be any size or shape and colour except for a solid white band encircling the entire stone. This band can be of any thickness, but there should only be one and it should be unbroken. That unique white ring makes these stones somewhat rare, but unmistakable. I have always relied on these ones because I have had success with them, so I’m sticking with it.

As soon as I learned about wishing stones, I wanted to collect as many as I could. I have had a lot of practice finding them and that white band became easy to spot and I could find them quickly.

Location is not a problem wishing stones can be found anywhere. If you just want to give the stones a try, you could go searching and probably find one without too much effort.  Or, if you wanted to make a day of it, head somewhere a little off the beaten track and look there.

Half the fun is finding them I try to go to places that feel special to me. It’s not entirely necessary, but it adds to the experience and makes my stones seem a little more precious. This can be a solitary activity or you can go with a friend.

So, once you’ve collected your stones, how do you use them?

The Shared Wish

The shared wish is meant to “double” the power of the wish by using two people’s intentions rather than one. Intention, as always, is so important when performing any kind of magic even when using simple wishing stones. Small to medium stones work best.

Before beginning, go over the instructions with your partner so both of you are on the same page during the process. It’s important that both people are wishing for the same thing in the same way.

Hold hands with your partner and place the wishing stone between your palms, then firmly clasp hands. With your eyes closed and hands together, both of you need to focus deeply on the wish, thinking in present tense terms as though your shared wish is already happening. For example, “our trip is safe” or “we are healthy.” If needed, say the wish aloud.

Now, visualize the wish occurring in your mind. Imagine what it looks like to have your wish happen, imagine what it feels like. Try and feel only the stone in your hand and focus only on that and imagine the wish flowing from your palm into the stone and swirling around inside it like smoke.

Open your eyes. If one of you is still concentrating, don’t interrupt them. Once their eyes open, you can release hands. Your wishing stone is now charged with your intentions! Times two!

Because this is a shared wish, neither of you needs to carry the wishing stone around, the stone should be placed on a high point, preferably outside like a window ledge where it can be exposed to the elements and release the wish as it likes. Once your wish has been granted, you should thank the stone and then return it back to a natural environment.

The Moon Wish

This spell is designed for larger wishing stones that can’t be carried around with you.

On the first day of the moon, prior to making your wish, dig a hole big enough for your wishing stone on the east side of your home. Make sure it’s deep enough for the stone to be completely covered with no chance of exposure. At midnight on the first official day of the moon, close your wishing stone in your hands and make your wish. Meditate on your wish for as long as you feel necessary and at least long enough to warm the stone in your hands . This process may take a while depending on the size of your stone, but that’s beneficial to you because the more time you spend focusing on your wish’s intentions, the better.

Once the stone is warm, go outside and bury it in the hole you dug earlier. Pack the earth tightly so the stone will be undisturbed, and mark the spot so you can find it easily.

On the third day after the moon unearth the stone and bring it inside. Make a warm salt water bath and wash the stone so it is as clean as when you found it then take the stone back to nature and thank it for its work. If possible, take the stone east, toward the sunrise and leave it in a place where the sunlight touches it.

Quick Wish

This is supposed to be fast and fun for less specific wishes as it requires a lot less concentration. This is for “good-intention” wishes, like wishing for health and happiness, or something you are waiting to happen.

Hold you’re wishing stone tightly in your left hand, warming it slightly. Then close your eyes, and as you say your wish aloud, turn the stone over in your hand three times to charge it with your wish. When finished, hold the stone with your right hand and throw it eastward as far as you can. Because of the nature of these wishes, you don’t need to keep the stone with you. Instead, when you throw the stone, imagine yourself throwing your good intentions into the universe and hoping they come true.

You can also buy wishing stones online if you’re not having any luck finding them where you live, wishing stones are meant to be used once and then discarded so someone else can find it. Back to the single white band, one band, one wish. So, don’t try to reuse the stones if you want more wishes, just find more wishing stones!

After all the work finding the stone, some may not be so ready to part with it once the wish has been granted. This is up to you, but I think you’ll have a better chance of having your wish come true if you throw the stone.

Unlike your quartz and amethyst and the loyal stones you may carry with you or place on your altar, wishing stones don’t belong to you. Think of them as little spirits who come into your life temporarily to help, who you then release so they can help someone else.

Connecting with spirit

how-to-call-upon-your-spirit-guide-300x168

One of the goals of a lot of people on a spiritual path is to learn the ability to receive messages from the spirit world and to be able to communicate with spirits. We all come onto this path at different levels and I know that it can be very frustrating for some. Others are already aligned with their natural skills and they have a good foundation for spirit communication.

Like anything we do, the more you work at it the stronger and better you will become and the more it will grow. There are a few stages we go through when learning to make spiritual contact.

Stage One – No Sensation – This is usually caused by a disconnection between the third eye and the nervous system. Numbness, the skin is unable to pick up spiritual sensations including a lot of the physical sensations in our world. A lot of these sensations we think are physical, actually can have a spiritual component to them.  Children, they embrace everything with enthusiasm and wonder, so they experience a lot, adults tend to be less aroused with the world around them, in turn tend to miss things. These subtle cues are how the spirits connect to us in the beginning stages.

Stage Two – Slight sensations – At this stage, the third eye and the nervous system have connected and you can sense things going on around you. You might not be able to make sense of much but you are noticing that strange things are indeed occurring. Your third eye has started working in alignment with your body and your chakras, through exercises and spiritual practises it will now steadily grow stronger. It would be a good idea at this time to figure out what area you are strong in and work with exercises specifically designed for developing that ability. At this stage pay close attention to what goes on around you and what you feel and see. Be open to the idea that it might be your spirits trying to interact with you.

During this stage…

You might hear the same song over and over again
You might notice things in your environment move
You might see shadows and orbs
You might have tingles and slight vibrations on your skin
You may experience strange smells
You might develop strange tastes
You might hear a ringing or a buzzing sound
You might get images and visions you can’t make full sense of
You might have dreams where you recognize symbols or energies that are familiar
You might hear things; words, sentences, expressions, laughter.

Stage Three – Awakening – At this stage your senses are really starting to awaken, they are starting to emerge, and you are really starting to experience things. You might not know where things are being derived from but you are starting to get very strong sporadic bursts when it comes to sensing and working with your third eye. At this stage you are starting to really experience powerful psychic moments. They might not last and you might not know how to control them but they are there and you are having them. At this stage you will begin to get a handle on your abilities and know what you need to do to continue growing and developing them. You will begin to know yourself, your senses and know what areas you are strong in and what areas need working on. You are really beginning to understand yourself.

You will also ….

Have a moment of powerful psychic intuition that is uncontrolled.
You might see shadows and shapes around you.
You might hear words or phrases.
You might have moments of strong communication with your companions.
You might have moments were you feel them.
You will have dreams of your companions and have lucid experiences with them.
You will develop a basic communication system to interact with them.
Your senses will begin to stabilize
You will have routines with your companions and know how they work and have moments where you see, hear and sense them very clearly.
May now you should try new exercises, try new things and experiment with your skills and abilities. See if you can expand and awaken new abilities in yourself.

Stage Three – Strong Sensations –Your third eye is beginning to be comfortable with its abilities and how it connects to and works with your physical body. You have a stronger sense of the energies going on around you and you are in a higher state of arousal.

You may notice things in your environment, music changing, things moving, things happening, coincidences, symbols.
You can see the shadows of your companions and you can begin to make sense of what they are doing.
You are able to get strong smells that would otherwise go unnoticed.
You can see your companions in your mind’s eye and get visuals and images.
You can hear them and have ways of communicating with them.
You are able to feel and sense their energy.
You can have dreams with them and uncontrolled Astral projection or OBE with them.
You will experience their energies on your skin and have sensations from your companions touching you.
Have fun with your companions and know them and their personalities, you are able to tell them apart and get a sense on how they sound and talk, feel them and touch them.

Stage Four – Full Sensations – At this stage you are working flawlessly with the rest of your senses and you are tuned in to the spiritual world. Your third eye, nervous system, chakras, body are all working together to translate the spiritual energies that are around you. You have control of your abilities and you know yourself pretty well. You know your companions and know who is who and what they are doing.  At this stage it is all about going deep. You want to have a solid exercise routine and continue to work your skills pushing them, experimenting with them and trying new things with them.

You know who is who and can tell whose energy belongs to which companion.
You can tell when you are being touched or stroked, you can feel them and focus on feeling the sensations.
You can hear them and hold full conversations with your companions even a group of them at a time and you can tell who is talking to you.
You can smell them you will know the aromas that your companions have.
You will be able to have Lucid Dreams whilst interacting with them, have controlled astral experiences.
You can tell the difference in your companions energies.
You can see them walking about, interacting with each other and know what they are doing
you can joke around with your companions and understand their difference language patterns and humour.
You can tell the difference between them.
You can have physical stimulations from them and receive messages and inspirations from them.

Remember to be patient with yourself and be open to every possibility. There is a lot lying dormant within us, just waiting for the right time to be awakened.

My favourite crystals to help heal yourself.

crystals-hand

Crystals have been used throughout all of history as a source of healing power. Ancient cultures all over the world used healing crystals and stones to align, clear and transform their energy, spirit and physical health, here are a few of my favourites.

Clear Quartz is very versatile it’s also known as the master healer and can provide assistance to those in need of any type of healing it is known for pain relief when placed on a painful area.  This crystal strengthens and increases the aura and provides regenerative energies to areas of the body in need of healing.

Smokey Quartz has a strong and deliberate action of eliminating negative energies and grounding higher vibrations into the 3-D physical reality.  For those undergoing radiation for cancer this crystal can help to counteract some of the effects of this therapy due to its own exposure to the Earth’s natural radiation.  It is said to improve healing and relieve some pain and is great in body layouts and grids for this purpose.

There are some stones that can help with cancer, Smokey Quartz and Selenite. While Selenite is known to be a highly spiritual crystal, it is also known for reversing some of the damage done by free radicals in the body.

Selenite has one of the purest vibrations of the mineral kingdom and can assist in assimilating these energies.  When Selenite is placed on an affected area of the body will help to infuse the area with fine light energy, which can be an aid to the healing process bringing insight and access to the higher self a great aid for meditation and spiritual development. Selenite can infuse the human energy field with angelic vibrations preventing negative energies from infiltrating one’s aura.

Specific stones for the lungs include Amber and Rose Quartz.  Amber brings the memory of perfection back to the cells of the lungs, allowing for a greater chance of healing.

Specific crystals for the prostate include Chrysoprase and Obsidian.  Chrysoprase is a strong detoxifier and it pulls in healing universal energies into the Sacral and Heart Chakras and the organs of the lower body.  Obsidian works with the lower chakras to cleanse the area of any negative energies bringing healing energy to the area.

There are a few crystals that can help endocrine function, some of which are Citrine, Golden Topaz, and Yellow Jasper.

Citrine carries the regenerative energies of the Sun, bringing warm healing vibes into one’s personal energy field, it is helpful for those suffering depleted endocrine function and those who are susceptible to environmental influences.  It has powerful healing vibrations for the Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras, and the relative organs including the pancreas, the thyroid, the thymus, the spleen, the kidneys and the bladder.

Also known as Imperial Topaz, Golden Topaz is spiritually and physically a revitalizing crystal and can act as a catalyst for great healing on multiple levels.  Crystal healers are familiar with Golden Topaz’s regenerative effects on the endocrine glands, the liver and the gallbladder, which make this a great crystal for body layouts.  Golden Topaz also enables one to release any negative patterns that may contribute to the manifestation of disease.

Yellow Jasper is a proficient detoxifying stone that energizes the entire endocrine system.  By focusing its energies on the Solar Plexus Chakra, it can promote the healthy flow of positive vibrations throughout the associated organs including the liver, stomach, and endocrine glands.

Lastly, Rose Quartz known as the stone of love imparts a vibration of empathy and compassion directly into the Heart and Higher Heart Chakras, which brings inner peace and a greater capacity for universal love.  It can be quite helpful to those who find themselves depressed or sad.  The calming and soothing vibes can be felt radiating into the body and its aura.  Rose Quartz makes a great aid for chronic or traumatic depressions or anxieties, and is most helpful when held or carried.

Introduction to Witchcraft

Tea magic ritual for self love, try it on the next full moon.

2288f4d2074548d45dafda3138cd6c51

Do you like the idea of doing a full moon tea ritual this is where you spend a few precious moments  preparing  and drink your tea, you can do it alone or share it with friends and family. It is your choice but the experience will have better results if you do it by yourself.

Some of you may feel emotional and deep feelings may rise to the surface during this ritual and you’ll be more at ease to let them out if you’re alone. The way you do it doesn’t really matter as long as you do it mindfully with intention, be conscious of how you feel and try to stay in the moment when following the ritual, feel free to customise it slightly if you like.

I love this tea ritual because the process of preparing it is a magical act in itself, tea brewing involves the union of the five alchemical elements. That’s why tea rituals are a particularly powerful kind of magic. You don’t even need a magical circle for it to work although you can still cast one to help you if you want too maybe some of you will also set up your altar.

Elemental Correspondences:

Earth: The herbs in your tea

Air: The steam and scent of your tea

Fire: The warmth needed for tea brewing

Water: The medium of you tea, its liquid state.

Recipe: for herbal tea for self love and self acceptance.

A small tea pot makes approximately 2 cups

1 tea spoon of rose petals

1 tea spoon of jasmine

1 tea spoon of thyme

1 tea spoon of lavender

A pinch of sea salt (or table salt)

Honey for flavour

You will need your favourite tea set a mortar and pestle and a kettle.

First, gather the herbs.  (You can substitute it for normal tea leaves if you wish if you don’t have the recommended herbs.)

Using a mortar, grind every herb separately. While you’re grinding them, focus on your goal.

Charge each herb one by one by passing your hands through them. Imagine that a white light goes from your hands to the herbs. When you feel the herbs tingling with energy, put them into your teapot.

Boil the water in your kettle. While you’re waiting prepare yourself and your sacred space. Ground yourself, burn some incense and light a candle.

When it’s ready, pour the hot water on the herbs. Focus on what you’re doing then find a place where you can see the moon. Sit near of your window, or if the weather allows it, go outside.

Let it cool down and think about how you see yourself remember all the times when you’ve been hard on yourself. Think of the moments when you’ve felt that you were not good enough or not worth of the other people’s love or admiration.

Say to yourself – I am a good person. I am worthy of all the good things that are in my life. I am enough. I love who I am.

Drink your tea as you drink it imagine that you’re surrounded in a pink light a loving, healing, protective energy. Breathe it in, and imagine that it’s filling your soul with love and compassion.

When there is only a small sip of tea left, stop drinking. Pour the last drop of tea into the ground as an offering. Thank the Full Moon and the Universe for their help. Above all, thank yourself, self-love is not an easy thing.

Leave the herbs in the garden if you feel like it write what you’ve felt in your journal.  The most important thing to remember to always be kind towards you, self love takes practice to become good at it.

What will your cards reveal for you in 2018.

Do you need to let go ?

Let-Go-of-the-Past

Letting loved ones go is probably one of the hardest adversities and experiences that a human being can go through, especially when those people choose to be no longer in your life for whatever reason.

Love in general is a very vicious emotion that is complicated, simple, warm, confusing, hurtful, you get the idea.

So, as humans, we owe it to ourselves to learn how to cope and move forward from these horrible feelings/despair. Easier said than done, we all know this.

Heartbreak teaches us a very important lesson about ourselves and if we are going to be strong enough to get over it. This is all a matter within yourself that you are going to have to come to terms with.

We don’t always get what we want, sadly, however, that does not mean we should despair so easily. Sure, we may have loved those people with all of our hearts, but we also deserve to be happy and full of love despite whoever doesn’t want to be in our lives anymore.

You, personally, owe it to yourself to find that warmth and happiness in the everyday that is your life. The important thing to remember after dealing with heartbreak is that you are an amazing person for dealing with these conflicting emotions.

It’s also important to remember that you have to forgive yourself and forgive them as well for choosing a different path from your own.

They may no longer be there by your side, but they are going to find happiness in their own time, at their own pace just like you will do the same. Letting go of these people is hard but is more than likely for the best. Happiness calls to us in a variety of ways, shapes, and forms.

Keep your head high, find the little things in life that make you happy, keep moving forward with those who need you and from those who don’t need you. Always remember that you are loved despite them being gone, remember that you are only human and deserve the best for yourself, and surrender yourself to these intense emotions as you slowly let yourself heal over time. Things will definitely get better!

The Witches Hat – Lammas

lammas

Lammas: July 31st/Aug 1st/ August 2

This is an Irish Gaelic name for the feast which commemorates the funeral games of Lugh, Celtic god of light, and son of the Sun. In the mythological story of the Wheel of the Year, the Sun God transfers his power into the grain, and is sacrificed when the grain is harvested. So we have a dying, self-sacrificing and resurrecting god of the harvest, who dies for his people so that they may live.

Lammas is a festival celebrating the first fruits of harvest, the fruits of our labours, and seeing the desires that we had at the start of the year unfold so rituals will be centred around this. Lammas is an early Christian festival, “lammas” means loaf mass and represented the first loaves baked from that years crop. These were taken to church and laid on the altar.

It’s a time for bread-making and corn-dollies. Goddesses celebrated around this time include Demeter and Ceres. Trees associated with lammas are Hazel and Gorse and herbs are Sage and Meadowsweet. Colours associated with lammas are golds, yellows and orange for the God and red for the Goddess as mother.

LammasLammas is traditionally first harvest. Look around you and you will see various trees namely Rowan yeilding bright red berries and brambles showing ripening fruits alongwith apple and pear trees. In this day and age when food is mass produced and imported so we get fruits and veg and corn no matter what time of year it is, it is easy to loose touch with the natural cycle of things.

Suggested Activities:

Creating and or decorating ritual items such as a Stang. Walk through the woods to spend some time meditating in beautiful surroundings. Making bread, make a wicker man and put all of your bad habits that you want to be rid of inside him and throw him in the bonfire. Making corn dollies.

Indigo Children

indigo-child-h-cooper
Indigo children, it is said, are those born over the last 25 years and who appear to have enhanced intuition. I shall speak of the traits and characteristic of the indigo child and if you feel your child is an Indigo child or Crystal child, there are ways in which to treat these children in order to understand them more fully.
I would also like to add, that there are older Indigo’s or Indigo adults, who were born in the 60’s. The indigo adult was sent ahead, many to give birth to the Indigo’s and who would be able to understand and nurture the children’s psychic ability. These children have been sent to make a difference to both mankind and nature.
Traits and characteristic of the Indigo Child. The Indigo Child comes into the world with a feeling of royalty. Self worth is not a big issue with these children and they will tell their parents who they are. These children have difficulty in handling authority without explanation or choice and find issues with queuing or waiting in line. They get frustrated with systems that are ritual-orientated and that do not require thought. They often see a better way of doing things, both at home and at school which makes them seem like system busters!
These children can often be incorrectly diagnosed as having what is know as ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. They have excessive amounts of energy and get bored easily and they are also very sensitive to people and their surroundings. They also tend to have their own way of reading and doing maths and they also become frustrated because they have big ideas but lack resources or assistance in carrying these ideas out.
Some of us older ones can relate to this also and as I said earlier there are many older Indigos that were sent in advance of the younger children, in order to be able to help and understand these Indigo children. Many of the older indigos often end up teaching, or they bear or adopt children who are Indigos. These children thrive in the presence of emotionally stable adults who have had difficult childhoods but have come through it all.
These children need to be treated with respect. Honour their existence in the family and helps them create their own disciplinary solutions. They should also be given the freedom of choice and be taught also how to make choices wisely. Never belittle these sensitive souls and always explain why you give them instructions. Listen to your explanations because if you just say to them “because I said so” they will not obey. Treat them as your friend and make them your partner in raising them. As infants explain as much as possible to them what you are doing as they like to be involved and also because they are very perceptive as well as being sensitive. Try to avoid any kind of negative criticism with these children as they take this very much to heart and this can affect them for years into their adulthood.
Finally, these children know already what there life path is and many will become healers, spiritualists and politicians.

Summer Solstice – Litha

19105915_10155291490411772_6416304106114536893_n.jpgLitha: Summer Solstice – 21st/22nd June

Litha (Midsummer, Gathering Day, Summer Solstice, Alban Heffyn, Feill-Sheathain)
Incense: Sage, mint, basil, Saint John’s Wort, sunflower, Lavender
Decorations: Dried herbs, potpourri, seashells, summer flowers, and fruits.
Colours: blue, green, and yellow

The Fire Festival of Litha

Midsummer or the Summer Solstice is the most powerful day of the year for the Sun God. Because this Sabbat glorifies the Sun God and the Sun, fire plays a very prominent role in this festival. The element of Fire is the most easily seen and immediately felt element of transformation. It can burn, consume, cook, shed light or purify and balefires still figure prominently at modern Midsummer rites.

Most cultures of the Northern Hemisphere mark Midsummer in some ritualised manner and from time immemorial people have acknowledged the rising of the sun on this day. At Stonehenge, the heelstone marks the midsummer sunrise as seen from the centre of the stone circle.

In ancient times, the Summer Solstice was a fire-festival of great importance when the burning of balefires ritually strengthened the sun. It was often marked with torchlight processions, by flaming tar barrels or by wheels bound with straw, which were set alight and rolled down steep hillsides. The Norse especially loved lengthy processions and would gather together their animals, families and lighted torches and parade through the countryside to the celebration site.

The use of fires, as well as providing magical aid to the sun, were also used to drive out evil and to bring fertility and prosperity to men, crops and herds. Blazing gorse or furze was carried around cattle to prevent disease and misfortune; while people would dance around the balefires or leap through the flames as a purifying or strengthening rite. The Celts would light balefires all over their lands from sunset the night before Midsummer until sunset the next day. Around these flames the festivities would take place.

In Cornwall up to the mid 18th century the number and appearance of fires seen from any given point was used as a form of divination and used to read the future.

Astronomically, it is the longest day of the year, representing the God at full power. Although the hottest days of the summer still lie ahead, from this point onward we enter the waning year, and each day the Sun will recede from the skies a little earlier, until Yule, when the days begin to become longer again.

Agriculturally, the crops are in full growth. They are reaching the pinnacles of maturity and coming closer to the harvest time. Most wild herbs are fully mature by Midsummer and this is the traditional time for gathering magickal and medicinal plants to dry and store for winter use. In Wales, Midsummer is called Gathering Day in honour of this practice.

Magical Aspects

Since this sabbat revolves around the sun, a candle should be lit for the entire day, especially if it is cloudy or raining. The fire represents the sun and is a constant daily reminder of the power of the God. Rituals should be performed at noon, when the sun is highest in the sky. The best rituals to perform on Midsummer are those dealing with masculine issues, masculine energies, or issues dealing with solar influence.

Many pagans choose to make protective amulets, in the week before the Sabbat, which are later empowered over the Midsummer balefire. Some witches choose to bury their protective amulets each Midsummer’s eve and construct new ones. Rue, rowan and basil, tied together in a white or gold cloth, is a good protective trio that can be carried in your pocket year round.

Midsummer is the time to formalize any relationship and couples that have been together a year and a day since the previous Beltane can make their marriage final. This Sabbat is also an excellent time to re-new wedding vows.
