Things are certainly heating up around here.
The temperatures are climbing the days continue to lengthen while the promises of Summer are everywhere.
In the growth of the garden (and the growth of the weeds), in the bright evenings and early sunrises and in the vibration of energy that leaks into everything this time of year; the anticipation of outdoor fun, kids excited for time off school and the general bursts of energy and desire to move out into the world that often accompany this sun soaked time of year.
This energy of the growing days and the strengthening sun, is perfect for harnessing and making manifest. We planted in early Spring and now we grow.
What are you calling in? What fires within and without might benefit from some stoking.
This is a great time to craft up a spell or two. Spells are a way to amplify an intention and direct our energy. They can be simple or more intricate.
If you have never crafted a spell before, a great way to start is with a little word witchery.
*Begin by setting an intention.
*Then take some time to journal about this intention.
*You might ask yourself yourself “Why do I want this?” “How will what I am calling in, influence or shift my life?” “What actions can I take to help move this intention into being in ordinary reality?”
*With the information you gain from this journaling, create a chant or poem that speaks to your intention and what you are calling in. Not feeling poetic? That's ok. Prose works just as well. The power is in the intention and the words.
*Now use the energy of the noon day sun to charge your words by speaking them beneath that golden orb. Feel the heat and energy of the Sun as you do this.
You might do this several times in one sitting, or multiple days in a row.
*When you feel complete you can release your words by burning them in a flame or tying them to a tree limb beneath the sun.
