One cannot keep secrets from oneself, no matter how hard one tries. You may currently be doing things a certain way and telling your conscious mind that it is correct, however, your deeper self can always tell the difference. Your deeper self can see through all lies you may tell yourself. Thus, banish all secrets that you keep. Be completely open and truthful towards who you are.
Moving forward with our intentions requires clarity. Clarity is a combination of focus and understanding. When we know what we want and why we want it, it becomes easier to devise a plan and to move forward with intention. Here is a simple spell that can be performed anytime to aid clarity.
You Will Need
A bowl of water
A pinch of rosemary
A white candle in a safe holder
Preparation If it is part of your practice, cast a circle. As you sit with your ingredients before you, centre yourself. Ground yourself in the present moment by focusing on your breath, the sensations of your body, and your connection to the earth.
Casting Place the bowl of water before you and sprinkle the rosemary across the surface. Light the candle and place it behind the bowl so its light reflects in the water.
Gaze into the water and watch the candle flicker along its surface. Empty your mind of thoughts. You may acknowledge a thought as it comes to you, but do not dwell on it. Instead, allow it to pass on, clearing your mind.
Recite the following with intention:
Flickering candle On water tranquil End obscurity Grant me clarity
When finished, extinguish the candle and pour the water and rosemary in your garden or outside.
Notes Rosemary: associated with the sun and fire; it enhances mental prowess White candle: divination and healing
➳ Woke up to a withered fire, quietly put on all my layers of clothing. I ventured out in the cold spring air up to a small plateau behind the cabin, while following a fox’s trail in the undisturbed sprinkle of snow that fell during the night. The hoot of a wood-pigeon was the only sound to be heard for miles while I witnessed the sun return. If only all days could begin like this.
