A wonderful and gentle herb. I would say that I mostly use Chamomile as a tea to help me wind down just before I go to bed. Sleep is so very important for mental health and I can tell you that if I do not get a good nights sleep my mental health suffers terribly so many moons ago I created a ritual for getting ready for a good nights sleep. Part of that ritual is, after having a lovely warm shower, sitting all comfortable in my my bed reading a book while sipping a lovely cup of chamomile tea.
This ritual allows my body relax and slip into a wonderful and rejuvenating sleep.
Perhaps if you have not already, you could create a ritual that promotes restful sleep.
Working with the Moon
It is Dark moon on Thursday.
A time to delve into the unknown, the shadows to gain insight and guidance.
As we are moving towards the Summer Solstice, a time of significant growth and abundance, I will be consulting with my Ancestors for guidance around how to move forward with my counselling / consulting business and support with creating the changes I would like to make to create a simpler life.
What guidance will you be seeking?
Sacred Spaces within your home
Creating sacred spaces within your home is so important to feel connected to yourself and your magick.
I have many sacred areas within my home, I realise I am lucky practically living on my own, that you could almost say that my whole house is a sacred area with little sections within. These sacred areas are always morphing and changing as we move through the seasons, but they are always there.
If you are interested, I will share many of the sacred spaces within my home, but today I will share with you photo, it is a corner of my kitchen bench.
Within this space I have my kitchen mortar and pestle, my tea strainer, herbs, spices and beautiful plants. When I am cooking I light the candle to inspire and energise. When I am cleaning up after a meal I also light incense to cleanse the space.
It is functional and also very aesthetically pleasing to look upon it. It is an absolutely beautiful area to gaze upon and work my magick.
