So grateful the weekend is here! I typically start my weekends by getting the house all clean and catching up on laundry. It makes spending the rest of day and weekend a lot nicer. Another reason is I get to spend a little time on my craft. I managed to make some citrus oil and black salt today, but more on that later.
Work this week has been a combination of pleasant and sad. We learned some sad news of a fellow co-worker and let go of another co-worker, throw in a few sleepless nights and all this has resulted in some yucky feelings and not feeling our best.
In a perfect world I like to have a 7 day candle burning each evening, some weeks I manage it, this week I didn’t and I felt it.
So here we are on Saturday and I’ve prepared a candle to clear our minds an hearts of all the anxious and uneasy feelings, I’ve included 3 crystals as well. Clear quartz, black tourmaline and fluorite. I dressed my candle with an oil first and sprinkled herbs that correspond with my needs. I use those same herbs around the base of the candle as well. I always include an offering back to mother earth.
The main offering is always alcohol, this is very traditional of Eastern European folk work. I usually add a second offering as well, walnuts of course. Walnuts are a staple in any eastern folk magic kitchen.
The flame got quite large, that’s a good indication its doing its job! Burning away those feelings and letting that light and warmth in to heal.
Sometimes we need to clear our heads and hearts, try lighting a candle and surround it with your favorite herbs, flowers and crystals. Write down what you are grateful for or inscribe it into your candle.
Happy Weekend Blessings:)
