One of the most important ways of strengthening your intuition is to believe in it and to set aside some time to sit quietly and see or listen to your inner thoughts. Traditionally, your intuition is stronger when the moon is either dark or full. At the next dark moon, make an intuition pouch to help you tune into your deepest thoughts.
Items You Will Need:
Choose three of the following oils: cloves, patchouli, sandalwood, frankincense
Choose three of the following herbs: bay laurel, cinnamon, cloves, mugwort
A small glass bowl
A low table covered with a clean cloth
A dark blue candle
A small circular piece of dark blue cloth
A length of black string or embroidery thread
A comfortable cushion to sit on
Best Time To Cast:
The last day of the waning moon (the dark moon).
Mix the oils and herbs in the bowl and place it on the table along with the candle, the piece of cloth and the string or embroidery thread. Light the candle and turn out the lights. Sit in front of the table on a cushion and look into the light. Relax, calm your mind, and focus on the light of the candle. When you feel ready, place the pile of herbs onto the cloth, saying the following words:
“Open the starlit veil of night,
so I may see with inner sight:
By magic’s art, reveal to me,
The hidden things I wish to see.”
Gather the cloth up, with the herbs still inside, and tie the ends together, so that it makes a pouch, with the string or embroidery thread. Wear your pouch at times when you want your intuition to be at its strongest.
