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.

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.

The witch, the warrior, the queen & the high priestess.

Screen-Shot-2014-02-19-at-11.32.37-PM

The witch, the warrior, the queen, the high priestess all these knowledgeable and wonderful women have in common a genuine inner beauty, combined with magical training that gives them spiritual wisdom and other worldliness to inspire others in there magical and spiritual work they often represent hidden knowledge, intuition, the unconscious, secrets and anything that needs deeper exploration when asked to give advice or psychic readings they are often spot on, as people they are mostly a little introvert, quiet and good listeners they won’t talk much about trivial things but if you ask for advice, they will often come up with insightful and helpful guidance.

They don’t get involved in gossiping, but love observing people and form their own opinions, which they keep to themselves. When you first meet her all you see is the tip of the iceberg. If you want to see the whole picture, you have to dive deep, which takes time, effort and patience, she may seem a bit passive at first, but over time you realise she is fiery, strong and incredibly efficient in an effortless sort of way.

She is leadership material and she can have a powerful influence with her counselling skills and inherent wisdom, her friends often rely on her when difficult decisions have to be made. She likes to rule quietly, but won’t be happy if someone else tries to take her limelight. As more and more hidden gems are gradually revealed, you will discover the odd weakness, too, which she is very eager to keep hidden like fragility and sensitivity.

She is linked to the moon, which can make her susceptible to other people’s moods, insecurities and self doubts; therefore she can see trouble brewing and offer sound advice. Some of you may like to take note of these wise words for they will help you as they have helped me in my life…

Always try to listen rather than talk then wait and see rather than take action, always trust your intuition often facts are not always what they seem to be, only offer advice or share your opinion when you are asked for it, stay calm when faced with conflict and don’t get involved in drama, be observant and learn from what you see, do your research thoroughly and accept nothing at face value, remember first impressions do count but remain open and receptive to all possibilities. Yes your creative ideas have great potential but they need refining and a clear plan for action, meet uncertainty with patience and don’t panic take your time and slow down, always keep personal and sensitive information strictly confidential and choose your words wisely for they have energy and you can never take them back.

I have used my psychic ability and spiritual knowledge to help many people over the years in my teachings and by doing Tarot and other readings. I use my intuition and my guides to uncover secrets and hidden knowledge.

What advice are you seeking today?

Full Moon on 31st March, don’t let it give you the blues.

blue-moon-march-2018-800x450

The full moon on Saturday March 31, 2018 at 10° Libra is a blue moon because it is the second full moon of the calendar month.

Mercury retrograde opposite the Blue Moon March 2018 means it will be hard to understand your feelings and even harder to share them. Saturn squares the full moon and Mercury brings negative thinking, sadness and loneliness this is particularly troubling full moon. Doing nothing and letting the full moon get you down is not an option.

The good thing about these challenging aspects is that they force you work hard and improve yourself and positively transform your life in powerful ways. This is a full moon to work with your fears and release them.

This highlights opposing forces in your life such as your work versus home, or what you need rather than what you want. Inner tension and external pressures can lead to personal conflict and crises that drain your energy. Your home, family and intimate relationships come into sharper focus around a full moon.

Our emotions and instincts reach their peak at a full moon more awareness allows for an impartial and balanced look at your personal relationships. Use you increased emotional strength and intuition to overcome any relationship challenges. You will clearly see any relationship dynamics or negative feelings that’s causing disharmony.

This full moon and its connection to relationships in the previous new moon that was earlier in March can now be fine tuned or completed. You can make the necessary emotional adjustments in response to those new moon goals. The effects of this full moon will last for two weeks leading up to the next New Moon which is on 15 April.

Full Moon in Leo & Lunar Eclipse

Lunar-Eclipse-January-31st-2018-Super-Woman

Today s Full Moon in Leo & Lunar Eclipse – January 31st 2018,  this moon is also known as a Red moon, It also happens to be Blue moon and the second full moon this month, plus it’s a Super Moon, which means its much bigger and brighter than normal.

That’s some pretty awesome lunar energy 🙂

This Lunar Eclipse will be followed by Solar Eclipse on 15th February and both link back to the eclipses in August last year, whatever was happening in your life back then is now being brought to light again, so that we can understand it and move forward with more clarity.

This moon in Leo is all about matters of the heart and facing out fears, finding courage and seeking truth, strength and direction despite the opinions and actions of others.

The Lunar Eclipse is encouraging us to find perspective, let go of the past and come to terms with things that affected us deeply, mainly in connection to love and relationships then to move past it and shine our lights brighter, be more loving to ourselves and others, to expand our hearts, to be courageous and face our fears.

Spend some time in thought, see what comes to mind that still rankles you or has the power to upset you from your past see how you can start to move forward or come to terms with it and let go, is it fear that’s keeping you stuck, find the courage, dig deep if you have to it yes may take some time but know that it is there within you.

Full Moon Scrying

th

Many of us can feel a connection to the moon and some of us notice an increase in our intuition, we may also feel more energetic and a bit more sensitive to our environment and what’s going on around us.

This is because our bodies and minds are connected to the lunar cycles and during this time we have heighten senses and sleeping can often be a major factor with many of us not sleeping properly for 3 or 4 days.

We have a super moon and total lunar eclipse at the end of the month this is a good time to try some sort of divination and one of the more suitable and perhaps obvious methods during this time is moon scrying.

We need a reflective surface as a tool for scrying, the Egyptians and the Romans did this during their religious rituals. Even Nostradamus made notes about staring into a bowl of water by candlelight to gain inspiration.

This type of divination is one of the simplest to do, you could do it outside by sitting somewhere that you can see the moon reflecting on the water where you are using the moon to illuminate the water for you.

You can do this the day before or on the day of the full moon or the day after all or any of them is acceptable.

To do this inside or in your garden you will need a table, a dark bowl and jug of water to fill the bowl, a note pad or journal if you keep one, peace and quiet or soft meditate music.

Cast your circle or use protective white light, if you work with guides and helpers call them close.

Prepare yourself to start by closing your eyes and focusing your mind on the energy around you listen to the sounds around you tilt your head back and face the moon and bring that energy towards you.

Take some time to gather that energy and It’s a pull, it’s a sensation that you can feel, take your time to feel it and recognise your connection to it, and to the Divine.

When you are ready to begin scrying, open your eyes, you may start to feel an unusual sense of clarity and alertness now pour the water into the bowl from the jug, visualise the energy of the moon charging that water.

Now position yourself so that you can see the moon’s light reflected directly into the water. Stare into the water; you are looking for patterns, symbols or pictures. You may see images moving, or perhaps even words forming.

You may even have thoughts pop into your head that may not seem to mean anything right now, this is where you can use your journal write it down.

Spend as much time as you feel gazing into the water for some it may be just a few minutes, or even an hour. Stop when you begin to feel restless, or if you’re becoming distracted.

When you are finished make sure you have written down everything you saw, thought and felt during your session.

If some of it doesn’t make sense, don’t worry give it for a few days to let your unconscious mind process it. Chances are it will make sense eventually.

It’s also possible that you could receive a message that’s meant for someone else if something doesn’t seem to apply to you, think about your family or circle of friends, and who it might be meant for.

Afterwards, you can leave your water out overnight to charge it, or you can pour it away. Finally ground yourself by making tea or having something to eat.

New Moon in Capricorn

th

The best news is that good karma is finally on the way with this New Moon in Capricorn, the Universe is about to  reward us Capricorns with some much deserved good luck for all our effort and hard work from last year. This is a good time for us to think over too see  what we should give up in order to be able move forward this year, for many of us our perception of  certain situations has evolved  which means we no longer see things the same as we once did, we are now prepared to wrap things up in a neat package, put them  away somewhere safe  and move on to the next part of our journey. Remember we are in eclipse season now, and by the time the Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo arrives in two weeks, on the 31st, you may well be ready to turn your back on something that has been part of  your life for a very long time.

New Year’s Super Moon.

moon-advice-2

New Year’s Day we will see the first super moon of 2018.

The first full moon of the year is called the full wolf moon, the old moon or moon after Yule it is also a super moon a full moon that arrives when the moon is at or near the part of its orbit that’s closest to Earth.

This moon will be visible on New Year’s Day will appear bigger than usual.

Though the moon will be at its closest point to Earth on Jan. 1, the moon will gradually appear bigger and brighter over the coming days.

This Super Moon falls under the sun sign of Cancer, this is fairly significant, because during the month of January, families often spend a lot of time together inside as they ride out the winter season, this should provide you with the ability to let go of the past in order to move forward to enjoy and celebrate your life and home to create a closeness with loved ones and start the New Year with a clean slate.

On Jan 31we have another super moon this one is called a Blue Moon, the second full moon during this month this super moon will also be involved in a total lunar eclipse, in which the Earth’s shadow totally covers the moon, making it a Blood Moon as well.

This moon will lose its brightness and take on an eerie, fainter than normal glow from the little sunlight that makes its way through Earth’s atmosphere, this often casts in a reddish hue because of the way the atmosphere bends the light so it won’t actually appear blue at all.

This event is made a bit more special by the fact that this super moon is one of three occurring in a row. The first appeared on December 3, this one is on January 1, and we’ll see the third on January 31.

Use this wonderful energy to focus on letting  go of bad habits and things that no longer serve you as well as people that drain you, concentrate on you and finding new adventures and creative projects, may you find joy, peace and happiness in 2018.

Don’t forget Jan is a good time to order your 12 month tarot forecast for 2018 you can find details here  What will your cards reveal for you in 2018.
