Waxing Moon Meditation

A Dragon in the Sun (PDB)

Waxing Moon Meditation

 

Make yourself comfortable, close your eyes and focus on your breathing….deep breaths in and out….Visualize the real world disappearing.

As your world dissipates you find yourself at the foot of a hill, the grass is green beneath your feet and you can feel a gentle breeze on your face.

The lush grass is scattered with white daisies and you can smell their fresh scent in the air.

A small narrow track leads up the side of the hill in front of you, twisting and turning, spiralling its way up to the top, so you decide to follow it.

As you walk, following the path round and up with each step, release any stresses and worries that you are carrying with you….

Look out across the scenery, what do you see? What sounds can you hear?

Look out for any wildlife along the way.

Take deep breaths of cleansing, refreshing air as you walk. Walk on, continuing to ascend the path, heading always upward.

When you reach the top of the hill you lay down on the grass, lying on your back and looking up at the sky. Watch the white, wispy clouds as they float pass in the bright blue sky. What shapes do you see?

In the distance you see a darker cloud and realize that in the opposite valley there is a light rain shower, but the sun is still shining on your hilltop. After a short while a beautiful rainbow appears.

As you lie on the hilltops, allow yourself to draw renewing, invigorating energy from the rainbow, it is a gift from Mother Nature and she is happy to share it. Take as much as you need.

When you are ready, stand up and take a long look around at the landscape.

Then start to make your way back down the hillside, slowly following the pathway as it spirals down until you reach the foot of the hill.

Give thanks to Mother Nature and come back to this reality. Stamp your feet and wriggle your fingers.

Guided Meditation for Beltane

Beltane Comments & Graphics
Guided Meditation for Beltane

 

Beltane, sometimes called May Day, occurs on April 30th or May 1st in the Northern Hemisphere and October 31st or November 1st in the Southern. Traditions vary, but it is often associated with spring, flowers, and fertility. In this meditation you will explore the areas in your life where you are creating, and focus on a specific act of creation in your life.

In a safe place begin by shaking out tension and stress from your body, then find a comfortable position and close your eyes.

Take a deep breath.

Breathe in, two, three, four and out,

two, three, four and in, two, three, four

and out, two, three, four.

Go ahead and feel your body, are there places you are holding tension? Even if you are indoors, let yourself feel the warmth of the Sun. Begin at your feet; as you see and feel the Sun’s light touch your toes, let them soften and relax.

As the light moves up your body, to your feet and then your legs, feel them soften, releasing any tension they were holding. The light touches your knees, then your thighs. Feel the Sun release your light reaching your chest, and your shoulders, traveling down your arms and in to your hands. Feel as your neck and jaws soften, and finally your face and you whole head. As you rest, bathed in the Sun’s light let its warmth fill you and give you energy. Just breathe. Each breath in absorbing the light and storing it.

Breathe in, two, three, four

and out, two, three, four

and in, two, three, four

and out, two, three, four.

When you are ready bring your awareness to the center of your chest. With each breath in allow your awareness to shift, bringing you into the shade of a apple tree’s branches. You can hear the sound of honey bees and feel grass between your toes.

Your body is still full of the energy from the Sun, and when you look around you can see there is a narrow path leading away from the apple tree and towards a looming mountain.

Let yourself move down the path, leaping and cart wheeling. Release the energy that has been pent up all winter and feel the wind on your skin as you run.

What does the Earth feel like under your feet as you move? Can you hear sounds? What do the plants smell like as you brush up against them?

As you run you feel the wind picking up, growing stronger and stronger at your back.

Soon it is lifting you up, and carrying you towards the mountain. Let yourself feel free and light.

As the wind carries you, you pass over various fruit trees, each bearing colorful flowers and teeming with pollinators, bees and birds of every variety.

As you travel along the air current, take a moment to reflect on the areas in your life where you are a creator, the areas where you are creative or build things.

Breathe in, two, three, four

and out, two, three, four

and in, two, three, four

and out, two, three, four.

When you are ready, let the wind set you down. Look around at your surroundings. Where have you landed? Are their plants or animals? Is it new or somewhere you have been? What does the air taste like?

Look around until you find a hidden nest.

There is an egg in the nest. What color is it? What size is it?

Take a moment to reflect on what you would like to cultivate in your life. What you would like to bring into the world. When you are ready send that intention into the egg, warm it with the light from your inner fire and the light from the Sun. Lay your hands on the egg, and with each out-breath send your intentions into it.

Breathe in, two, three, four

and out, two, three, four

and in, two, three, four

and out, two, three, four.

There is a movement beneath your hands, the egg is shaking, and cracks are forming along its surface.

You have created this egg, and brought it into being! As it hatches, what do you see emerge? Spend however much time you need with your creation.

Breathe in, two, three, four

and out, two, three, four

and in, two, three, four

and out, two, three, four.

When you are ready, let it fully emerge, and full with the energy you have given it, enter the world. A new creation.

When it is time to return to your body, turn and look at the mountain. You are much closer now, and there is a path leading towards it. Follow this path. And with each step you take along it, let your awareness shift back to your body. With each breath come back at little more.

Open your eyes. Say your name out loud, shake, pat yourself. Do whatever it is you need to help yourself return to normal awareness.

You may wish to sit quietly, with your eyes open for a few minutes and reflect on the experience you had.

BELTANE LOVE & CREATIVITY SPELL

QUICK SPELL Find a quiet, comfortable place where you will not be disturbed. You will need the following items: one red candle, one green candle, almond oil and jasmine incense, a pen and your Book of Shadows. Use the oil to anoint the candles and your forehead. Sit silently for a few moments and then ask the Goddess to guide your meditation. Light the red candle and say: May the goddess Flora bring me everlasting love and companionship. So mote it

Perform the following meditation: It is May. Picture yourself sitting on a hilltop and surveying the land around you. Flowers are in full bloom, birds are singing and a soft breeze wafts across the meadow bringing with it the scent of lilacs, roses and lily of the valley. The fragrance is so intoxicating that you feel your senses heightened to the point of superhuman ability. The happenings in the extreme distance seem like only a few yards away and you are part of them.

What do you see – you and your loving partner or, if you are single, the partner of your dreams? Breathe deeply and bring this colourful picture closer and brighter. Enjoy. Then move to the next scene – you partaking in a creative endeavour you have been aching to try. Breathe deeply and bring the colourful vision closer and brighter. Concentrate. Now look again and see the final scene. What do you see – love, success, happy pastimes? Breathe deeply and bring the picture closer and into colourful focus. Release it, give thanks and return to the present. Write the details of your visualization in your Book of Shadows and read it daily for inspiration.

A Prayer/Meditation I Do Daily

LIns web site

Good morning Universe thank you for all my family and I have been given.

Good morning Ra, I thank you for your warmth and energy,

Good morning Mother Earth thank you for your grounding and energy.

Good morning Air, Water, Fire, Earth, the four Winds and Direction, (meaning the Cardinal Points/Watchtowers),

All our fellow living things on, above and below the waters;

On, above, and below the earth;

and in the air.

Thank you for being part of us and allowing us to be part of you.

I then go on to thank my Guardian Angels and those of my family and friends.

I thank my Spirit Guides and Ancestors for helping to guide me daily and keep me on my true life path.

There is more but it is on a more personal note so I will not share it here. I feel it is very important to thank those deities and other entities that helps us daily in our lives.  The reason I thank the God, Ra, and the Goddess, Mother Earth, but not all Gods and Goddesses I work with is to me they are my patrons for all I do. Without the help of Ra lighting the world we would always be in darkness. If not for all Mother Earth endures with us as well as other beings living on her, lets face it we would not even be here. So the next time you do you morning prayers or meditation or whatever you may call it try to remember to thank the Gods, Goddesses, Elements and other entities you work with in your magick or keep you safe from harm and/or danger. Doesn’t everybody like to here a thank you for the job they do or the help they give?

Thank you all for reading my work.

Blessed be.

Flasback 2000 Mabon Celebrations

MABON'

An example of a Mabon altar from  a Google search

“Autumn Equinox

At the time of the Fall Equinox, the Sun passes through Libra, traditional know as the sign of balance. In truth, however, Libra is the sign that restores balance. Appropriately, during the Sun’s trek through Libra, once again, the hours of daylight and darkness are equal–but darkness is about to regain its hold on Earth. At this time, The ancients gathered their final gifts from the Goddess and collected seeds to be used for next year’s crops. The seeds help the potential for new life. Gathering and collecting food stuffs were essential to the continuation of survival during the upcoming “barren” months, and the ability to meet out only what was needed is a perfect representation of Libra’s love of moderation. At this time, then, gather your thoughts, collect your memories, and prepare to do internal work. It’s time to rest, to retire from the busy days of light, and ready ourselves for winter.”

Goddess Meditation

freyja3-171x300

“Freyja and the Necklace” by James Doyle Penrose (1890)

“In fall Freya left us traveling southward. Now she returns again, bring such soft words.

Out of her golden hair springs flowers fall tumbling like melodies, sounding the call.

Chaste through the winter women now pine, wanting their lovers home sharing the wine.

Scandinavian folk song”

Flashback 2009 Ostara Celebration

OSTARA

An example of an Ostara altar from Google images

“New hopes, new beginnings, new relationships. The earth is reawakening. It’s seed-sowing holiday! It’s a fertility festival! It’s the festival of Eostre, an obscure but lighthearted Anglo-Saxon goddess, a source of conflicting evidence and  confusion. She straddles the balance of light days and dark nights,

For centuries, egg have been painted and left at the shrines of goddesses around the world. In Druid legends,an egg found on this day was a healing egg and mode from the spittle of serpents (very powerful and useful in divination). A poultry egg has long been the universal symbol of fertility and a source of songs and legends.

Rise with dawn and prepare yourself carefully today. The planets call for attention to detail and knowing your boundaries. Clear your aura, bathe, and don clean garments. Visit a clear river, pond, ocean and witness the light dancing on the water. Meditate. Cast a tiny crystal into the water-the very instant it splashes, you should get a glimpse of your journey and if you are very lucky, perhaps the water sprites dancing in the morning mist.”

Flashback 2007 Mabon Celebration

MABON

“A sabbat of balance and equality, Mabon is a time of second harvest and work shared. A dynamic tension exists that seems to stretch time into both a long day and a long night.

The second harvest is complete and winter’s supply is becoming known. Joyous celebrations flow in abundant years and more subdued gratitude in years of lesser harvest. There is a collective sigh as the road ahead becomes clearer and planning for the coming winter begins.

Celebrate around the world, this sabbat borders summer and winter–the last day of the growing sun, the moment before light will be over-taken by night. The energy of Mabon is similar to the electrically charged energy that occurs just before twilight, the energy of Between-Time.

Mabon is a time of strong and clear psychic visions and dreams. Spirit is clear and contemplation comes easily. It is a time of powerful, mature insight and dynamic action rooted in past efforts. Combining psychic visions with grounded effort leads to some interesting paths and journeys. Autumnal equinox, like vernal equinox, is a time of unlimited possibilities.
