~ Spellwork


My day yesterday began by waking up with dreams...
Dreams that I analyzed and acted on.

They told me to "clear" and to "cleanse" the toxicity of my emotions. I got the numbers 6 and 1....
and in looking it up with "The Oracle" (read: Google :)
It  told me:

Six represents harmony, balance, sincerity, love, and truth. Six naturally reveals solutions for us in a calm, unfolding manner. We invoke the Six when we need delicate diplomacy when dealing with sensitive matters. The spiritual meaning of number Six also deals with enlightenment; specifically "lighting" our path in areas we require spiritual and mental balance. Sixes beckon us to administer compassion and consciously choose forgiveness in a situation.

 One primarily deals with strong will, positivity, pure energy. The number One reflects new beginnings, and purity. The symbolic meaning of number One is further clarified when we understand One represents both kinds of action: physical and mental. This combined with Ones urgency for new beginnings, we begin to see Ones recurring in our lives indicates a time to exert our natural forces, take action, and start a new venture. One encourages us our action will be rewarded in kind.

It was also a day of NUMBERS yesterday with the 11/11/11 date.

So I looked up an exercise (spell) that I could do to cleanse my heart and do something of importance on this important day of numbers that my dreams inferred that I should do.

I took Monty on a walk to our nearby Skaneateles Creek where there is a wee waterfall. I also brought with me a clean empty bottle and cork, some lemon balm and sage leaves from my garden and my time piece (my cell phone).

I got to the rushing water just at the precise moment of 11:11am. I dipped my bottle into the rushing bubbling cold local waters, and while praying to my God(s) and Goddess(s), I prayed for Divine Guidance, Divine Timing, Healing, Cleansing, Love and Forgiveness of self and to give others. I pushed in the balm leaves into the narrow neck of the bottle for a healing balm. I added 6 (from my dream) sage leaves for wisdom, and I looked down and there was a most perfect golden maple leaf that had fallen on this specific day and I added that. "The water to wash away, the balm to heal, the sage for wisdom to help myself and others, the leaf for today, the cork for catching and holding the earth's goodness and to contain the blessings of this day."

I capped the bottle and finished my prayer with releasing tears, while Monty waded in the water and lapped up the fresh stream water. The rain that had been sputtering and falling on us, stopped at that very moment that the cork went into the bottle tightly.. I imagined that I could feel people all over the world at that precise moment praying their prayers of hope for the world too.

It's good to be at one with the Universe....

If only for a magickal shared moment of humanity..

It's good to release tears for yourself and others.

It's the first step on the path of Healing.

I walked Monty back home and I put the bottle on my altar. It sits upon the shelf and I know that I am being healed. I take the forgiveness of the Gods and I pass it on to others. The healing waters are mine.
We all need healing from time to time.

I spent the rest of the day, being kind to myself. A day of rest and pleasure.

And the feeling that I got, was that the Gods said it was GOOD.

I hope your world is a better place today for you being in it.

The thoughts that I am thinking after this is:

"We are not good.

We are not evil.

We just.....

ARE."

So, Go ahead! Give your special personality, your dreams, your support to the world around you.
For that IS your flavor that you offer to the world.
The "Salt" that makes the world taste good.

Today I will make a spell for healing.

It will be a jar filled with green and silver and white things (gems/paper/sparkles)
I will burn a candle and shake the jar 9 times (accomplishment and inventiveness) and then tie it round with a green healing ribbon. I will shake it from time to time to spread the good and healing thoughts through to my psyche. Instead of being all shook up with bad thoughts, I will shake in some good ones. For me. And for YOU :)

Harm none, do what you will.
 
Love and Hugs to you and yours on this day.

Bright Blessings from your friend ....

who listens to the wind....

and follows her heart....

who makes it up as she goes..........

Lovely, Lovely Post, Friend, I feels soothed and healed just by reading it :) The number 6 has been reaching out to me too, lately. The other day I was in the mall with Steph, and my phone was in one of the outside pockets of my purse, it was *purse dialing* the #6 over and over and over. I pulled out my call history and my phone had dialed the number six (or multiple 6's) over a dozen times.....also, a lot of the number schemes I've had deal with lately at work have involved large amounts of the #6.....apparently #6 has a message for me. After reading what it means, I'll have to ruminate and refocus my efforts at achieving harmony, balance and enlightenment.

As I read your posts, Merlyn, as well as the posts of others, It seems to me that most of what I have to offer is a "chore list". Today I raked, today I dug a ditch, today I blah blah blah. Has that been good for me? You bet! Those old feelin sorry for myself blues have no time to take hold, if I'm sweating my ass off. But as well as "taking" from this journey, I'd also like to be able to give something. Any ideas as to what I might offer ?

That is totally up to you, Diana!

I'm sure that whatever you offer, including moral support is wondrous. I am thinking about also trying a "get together" of our riders....real time meetup. Wouldn't that be fun? :)
