Lipstick Magick

Lipstick Magick

This seductive spell will leave a lasting impression on the one you love.

You will need red lipstick or lip balm such as chapstick (for men), your love and a thornless red rose.

After dark, write I LOVE YOU! On your bathroom mirror with the lipstick or chapstick. Also kiss the mirror a few times, each time applying new lipstick or chapstick. Draw a couple of stars and hearts and other magickal symbols. Now pull your lover into the bedroom. Greet him or her with a red rose (minus the thorns). Draw the rose softly along his or her cheek and then stroke your lover’s neck and throat with the soft petals and say:

“Your eyes are the stars in my skies

Your lips are the strawberries of my soul

Your kisses are the candy that I crave.”

Now tuck the rose in the front of your lover’s shirt or top, and kiss him or her with intense passion so that you can feel the spark and fire run through your body and your lover’s body. Continue to make love and have a blissful evening of love. Leave the message on the mirror for a moon cycle. You and your lover will enjoy reading the message and remembering your night of blissful love.

Daily OM for August 22nd – Pausing to Drink

Pausing to Drink

Beauty Day

by Madisyn Taylor

Take the time today to really notice and appreciate the beauty that surrounds you.

Sometimes we go through whole days without really tuning in to the beauty of nature that surrounds us. We have a habit of seeing it without really taking it in, yet once we begin to notice it we treat ourselves to an exquisite realm of subtle, complex scents, miraculous forms, and ethereal light. The natural world enriches our entire being through the vehicles of our senses. When we are low, nature lifts our spirits. When we are tired, it rejuvenates us—if we pause long enough to drink from its beauty. If you have fallen out of the practice of taking time to observe the light as it filters through the leaves of a tree, or the concentric rings a raindrop makes as it plops into a puddle, you can retune yourself by dedicating a day to noticing the beauty in nature.

On this day, one possibility is to rise early enough to see the sunrise. Watching the sky change colors and the world emerge from darkness is an experience that will influence the whole rest of your day in ways that words cannot describe. Or simply observe the quality of the morning light as it infuses the world with its particular pale golden beauty. You may let the light play on your own hand, remembering that you are also part of the natural world. Let your intuition guide you to the elements of nature that call to you throughout the day, such as the sound of the wind as it shakes and sways a tree or the feeling of snowflakes landing on your warm eyelids and cheeks.

After you devote one day to opening your eyes more fully to the beauty of nature, you may want to make this part of your daily routine. Each day drink from the beauty all around you, and allow it to rejuvenate your entire being. All you have to do is pause, for just one minute, and really take it in, remembering to thank Mother Nature for her beauty.

Daily Feng Shui Tip for July 24 – ‘Cousins Day’

Hip, hip hooray, today is ‘Cousins Day,’ which means that I will be updating photos of all of the cousins and putting them in the Family/Friends/Ancestors area of my main floor, maybe one from this past Christmas reunion that I’ll place in the middle of the left-hand wall space in my son’s room. I want to find a photo of my cousin Andrea, who has been so good to me through all these years, that I will put in the Family/Friends/Ancestors space in my home. Then, once I have all the pictures in place, I will light three green candles and say a prayer of gratitude for the grace and blessings of this beautiful bloodline. I’ll also offer a prayer for health and happiness for my sister’s boys and the children of two brothers. I’ll say a prayer of gratitude for the grace of a wonderful cousin who mothered me when my own passed away. And, finally, I’ll pray that all the cousins might know how truly and deeply loved they truly are!
