Happy Full Blessing Moon & Eclipse!

The Summer months are here and in full force over here in the Northern Hemisphere. This Full Moon in many ways, marks the last big planting time of the season. All that needed to sprout roots for the long months ahead is in the ground growing towards its full potential while we prepare and maintain for the coming harvest.

The Blessing Moon marks a time of both celebration and preparation!

Abundance can be found all around right now, and this Full Moon in Capricorn might have many of us wanting to play in the garden, placing our last minute plants into the Earth.

This current Lunar Eclipse holds potent energy for rebirth and transformation on many levels for us all…

It is very important to remember to cleanse and clear away any old or stagnant energy that might be blocking you from your growth! This might mean reorganizing or physically cleaning.

It’s also important for empaths and highly sensitive people to be clearing their energy and protecting their auras/shields right now!

Not only are we currently in the middle of the Eclipse season…but we are deep in the many big retrogrades of 2019.

Many of these planets will be retrograde for several months, so the lessons they offer might be a bit more subtle than Mercury’s and the current Full Moon’s.

A retrograde is when a planet appears to be moving backwards… It really isn’t, but the retrograde does cause US to slow way down ourselves… the energy causes us to reevaluate, rethink, and replan.

Eclipses, like the current Full Moon we are experiencing shake up the current energy so that what isn’t working in our lives can come to the surface to be dealt with and healed.

With all this going on, we are currently welcoming in big changes and deep transformation into our lives that will have lasting impact.

Web of Life Ritual for Interconnectivity and Awareness — The Druid’s Garden

Last week, we delved deeply into a critical aspect of land healing with two related concepts; thinking about the world in terms of (eco) systems and the interconnectivity of those ecosystems for all life. Last week was practical, full of discussions, definitions, and how you might design land regeneration projects with ecosystems and interconnectivity in […]

A LIGHT IN DARK PLACES: CRYSTAL HEALING + CLEANSING RITUAL FOR THE CAPRICORN LUNAR ECLIPSE

The purpose of this ritual is to charge a crystal with the moon’s healing energy and guidance, so that you can connect with healing light energy in dark times, and ask to receive guidance or clarity to help you navigate the challenges and understand the meaning or lessons from what you’re facing.

When I’m hurting, I often turn to the moon for solace. I stand under her brilliance at night and ask for nurturing, peace, healing, understanding.

The moon is many things: a guiding light in the night sky, a sorceress, a mystic, a keeper of wisdom.

She’s powerful, she moves the tides, and flowers bloom in the sway and cycle of her phases.

Studying the moon, following her phases and their effect on our lives, as well as rituals and devotions, has grown in popularity these past few years.

Is it the seeking of something more in our everyday lives? Or is the return to a primal, healing source that resonates very deeply to our DNA?

It’s very easy to imagine the first humans gazing upon the moon in wonder. She captures the imagination and ignites the intuition, the magic of our souls.

An eclipses, likely terrifying to them — an omen or portent of dark things or times to come…

I know these past few weeks have been hard for a lot of you.

There’s been a lot of loss, grief, shocking turn of events, stress, and emotional upheaval …

Magic in Ancient Mesopotamia – Honey, Oil and Whispering Rituals

Elder Mountain Dreaming

Contributions and additions by Phoenix of Elder Mountain; Babylon Oil Magic by Samuel Daiches, Ph.D. Lecturer in Biblical Exegeses and Talmudics, 1913 in London —  There were two forms of oil that were used in divination in ancient Babylon and Mesopotamia, one that was for the sweeter things in life (also healing) and that was Honey and the other, which was an earthier form of manifestation which was Oil, especially Oil from Olives and later Grapes.

Many newly built religions of the patriarch which started around 6,000 bce until around 500 bce when they were all completed and finished, even the moon he had to conquer and controlled, that was woman’s last and most sacred symbol that fell. Babylon created Dark Magic and the Talmud is its root, even though there were many different influences and people. I do have some of the spells listed but changed them to…

Worrying

secretsoftheserpent

We all worry.  Why do we worry all the time?  Getting this under control is one of the greatest things Magic does.  We as a human race are constantly looking for problems and danger.  We look for something to happen.  No matter how good things get, we constantly play out worst case scenarios in our mind.   Most people think this is a good thing.  They are simply wrong.  It fills us with anxiety and we get addicted to the anxiety.  You will never eliminate worrying, but you can understand that worrying is worthless.

CRYSTALS + AIR ELEMENT: INSPIRATION + DIVINE COMMUNICATION

Crystals + Air Element: Inspiration & Divine Communication

On a windy day, I like to open my arms wide and invite the spirits of the wind to clear my energy. Carry away any stagnant or harmful debris sitting on my aura or in my energy field, the stress and cobwebs from my mind, any dark or heavy feelings.

It feels liberating and invigorating! I then ask the air to infuse me with fresh ideas, free up my thinking, free me of preconceived limitations.

That’s the power of the air: It helps us to become unblocked, get moving again, feel inspired and think and communicate in new ways.

In the story of Ramtha, as he transitions from human flesh to Spirit, he becomes the wind and is transformed into air.

Air is liberating, invigorating, refreshing, and a powerful ally in our BECOMING.

IN CRYSTAL HEALING THE AIR ELEMENT HELPS US WITH:

  • Receiving Divine guidance

  • Forming ideas, thoughts, concepts, perspectives

  • Clearing energy

  • Communicating with the Divine, including prayer, mediumship, and psychic ability

  • Communicating + expressing thoughts and ideas with others

  • Listening

  • Forming + setting intentions

  • Freeing ourselves of things or thought patterns that no longer serve us

  • Travel

  • Movement (both physically and also in the form of healing chi flowing through the body)

  • Breathing + respiratory + cardiovascular wellness

7 CRYSTALS THAT HELP US CHANNEL AIR ELEMENT ENERGY AND WORK WITH AIR SPIRIT MEDICINE:

The best way to work with any of the following crystals is to hold one in your receptive hand while meditating or channeling, wear it as needed, or place it on the 3rd eye chakra in crystal healing sessions.

Mind Intuition and Projection vs Soul Impressions of Trauma Impression

Elder Mountain Dreaming

Phoenix of Elder Mountain Dreaming – I was in a group for a few minutes like I usually am, but then leave… and I saw someone asked this question: “Intuition verses Creation: Over the years having trained in both accessing my intuition as well as creating from my heart I have often wondered this: When I say ‘I’ve just seen something which is my intuition telling me that something has occurred or will occur’ how do I know if it is my intuition telling me something has created ‘out there’ or I have/am creating something ‘out there’?

I think there is a vital distinction I am not always sure about. So for example lets say I am consciously creating something from a vision my heart has given me… and then I see another vision I consider my intuition telling me it’s not going to happen…or it’s going to take longer than…
