Harmony Jar Spell

Today is Litha, so I made a small (teeny tiny) jar spell to promote harmony and well-being in my life. Here’s what I did in case anyone wants to use it :)


Materials:

-a small container

-wisteria (for overcoming obstacles)

 -sunflower petals (for happiness)

-lavender (for harmony)

-sugar (for preserving love)

-lemongrass essential oil (for peace)


I simply combined my materials in my jar and left in the sun to charge and that’s it! Hope people find this useful and happy Litha to those of you who celebrate it :)

Happy Litha-Summer Solstice, when the sun is at his peak, a fiery day…
~The sun, Helios, is all seeing (pantepoptes), when asked he confesses to Demeter that he has witnessed the abduction of Persephone by Hades. The sun reveals the beauty of  the natural world as it really is, and self-awareness showing mercy to those who have faced the cold too long and have paralysed, the flowers bloom underneath the therapeutic sun, we enjoy the playfulness of the sun rays on our skin and something awakens inside of us, we long for the long summer days. The sun can be proven  ruthless at other times, showing also the decay and responsibilities, the gap or deprivation, it burns the uninitiated one…one cannot be forced to face the sun, but introduced to it slowly…provided material or spiritual sunglasses…the sun can open eyes, too much sun at once can blind…Jacques Derrida  in his “Memoirs of the blind” claims that “the sun resembles the eye, the most "helioform” of all sense organs to the intelligible sun, that is, to the Good.“~

Almost forgot to post this for bibliophilicwitch Tomes and Tea Sunday. ^^ This is my first one and I hope to do more once I get settled into a new home.

I’ve never read the Hobbit or any of the Lord of the Rings books so I looked for a nice small one for travel and here is one. They are pleather and fit nicely in any bag.

Happy Litha / Midsummer / summer solstice!!
