Dried Lavender, dried Thyme & 3 Dried Bay Laurel Leaves in a flameproof dish
An altar candle
A small container to hold salt
A small dish or bowl to hold water
A tall purple candle with holder
You can also add purple crystals such as amethyst and the Tarot card of the High Priestess to your Altar.
Ignite the dried herbs in the flameproof dish so they emit smoke.
Light your Altar candle.
Concentrate and visualise a sphere of gold light forming around you and expanding outwards in every direction to form your Sacred space
Concentrate on all five elements of Air, Earth, Water, Fire and Spirit and how they are within you, represented on your Altar and in the world around you.
Raising your energy is bringing forth all your energy inside you and preparing to release it at the end of the Spell to go out into the world and create the changes you desire. Imagine the energy in the form of a white light flowing throughout your body forming a ball of light deep in your chest. Tense every muscle in your body until you feel ‘fully charged’. Relax and take a few deep breaths before proceeding
Anoint your tall purple candle with the Rose oil by carefully and purposefully rubbing 3-5 drops of the oil all over the candle. Think of the elements of air, fire, earth and water within and around you. Set the candle in a holder at the centre of your altar and light it from the flame of your altar candle. Carefully, pass the lit candle in a wide circle around your head, transferring it from one hand to the other behind and above your head. Do this three times, visualising the candle flame leaving behind it a circle of psychic purple light that surrounds you.
Say 3 times aloud:
‘By the Full Moon of the night
with energies bright
I am ready to accept Spirit to me
So mote it be’
After your Spell is complete you will need to release and send out the energy that you raised. This energy is released into the world to create the change you desire. To do this you will need to stand before your altar and imagine the ball of light in your chest once more. Again tense all your muscles and begin to ‘push’ the energy upward.
Then stand comfortably with your feet apart and thrust your arms upwards and outwards to form a star shape with your body. Exhale and imagine sending this energy out into the air. When this is complete, stand with feet together and touch each shoulder with opposite arms to form a cross against your chest.
Relax, take some deep breaths and imagine and visualise the golden sphere around you becoming smaller until it disappears.
On the first day of Summer the Summer Solstice Sabbat is celebrated and is also known as Midsummer. It is usually the 20th or 21st June and marks the longest day of the year when the Sun is at its zenith. The Summer Solstice celebrates the joy, warmth and laughter of summer and of the power of the Sun.
Plan in advance a simple walk to honour the gifts of nature. Go to a forest, lakeside, the ocean, the mountains or hillside or a quiet garden or public park. Breathe deeply as you take in all the sights, sounds, smells and feelings of nature as it surrounds you.
Summer relates to the element of Fire with corresponding colours of red, orange and yellow. Notice the elements around you – Fire, Earth, Air and Water. Pay attention to the element of Fire that surrounds you and how it relates to all your senses. Feel the warmth of the Sun on your body; feel the heat within you radiating from deep within your chest outward towards your legs and feet, your arms and hands. Feel both the inner heat from within you combining with the outer heat coming from the Sun.
Silently ask the element of Fire and Spirit to connect with you and aid you with your creativity, passion and motivation and putting your ideas into action.
At this time be open to any messages that come to you.
Look for gifts of nature connected with summertime and the element of Fire - a red, orange or yellow flower. Let the joys of nature seep into your soul as you stroll along.
On your return home, place representatives of the element of Fire upon your altar. These items can be things you have collected on your walk or beautiful things in the colours red, orange or yellow you have already in your possession.
As you look upon your altar take a few moments to focus on your creativity and the element of Fire and know that the positive qualities of the element of Fire will remain with you to aid your motivation and passion to put your creative ideas into action and create success.
Creating positive energy is very important if you are to live an abundant and prosperous life and build up good karma. A great way to do this is by undertaking some charity work.
