Warm greetings to all!
Thank you again to the brave and gentle souls who joined in for last week’s group ritual
As the winter snows melt away and leave a blank canvas ready to bloom- this is the perfect time to draw on natural energy around us for a fresh new start!
As mentioned in this week’s Merry Meet Monday news post, we are quickly approaching the time of the New Moon .
The New Moon (also referred to as the Dark Moon) offers us new chances and fresh beginnings- a great time to release things holding us back and plant the seeds we want to grow to fruition!
It’s the perfect time to celebrate the moon phase and draw on the energy of the season while sharing a warm cup with your coven
~ ~ Thursday, March 11th - Release and Relax ~ ~
Find some time to join in for a tea meditation - an easy and beginner-friendly meditative practice to help you focus your mind and draw in your energies
Although we are physically spread out across the world, it is possible to come together and share our energies and support when we share a quiet moment together.
Let’s enjoy a relaxing and peaceful tea time as a coven- you are warmly invited!
Ready? Let’s begin
Choose your beverage . While tea is the standard, it is perfectly fine to do this meditation with coffee, juice, hot cocoa, or any other beverage
Focus your intent . You can follow any style or type of meditation you choose- focus on your breath and thoughts and be present in this moment
Work some magick! While meditation is a magickal and healing process all on its own, you may choose to add an additional element of magick to your tea time.
(Optional - March 11) : Release and Relax
This meditation draws on the clean and refreshing energy of the New Moon. It is inspired by the information on the New Moon Spells Page.
Prepare your drink in a minimalist fashion this week- taking only what you need to enjoy your beverage and cutting out any unnecessary extras
As you drink, imagine each sip entering you like a wave- washing aside any negative influences, heavy emotions, or other unwanted thoughts bobbing around inside you
Feel your feet firmly grounded to the earth and allow heavy emotions and concerns to slip downwards and away. Let your mind reach up, up, up- to the beautifully dark and empty sky
Let each deep breath cleanse you thoroughly, and say the words:
Spring’s approach, New Moon in sight-
My mind is loose- my thoughts take flight!
Pure and empty, I am free-
With moon and nature, blessed be!
- Nurture the feeling of being light and open- let your mind spread across the sky as your body relaxes
- Enjoy the Benefits of Meditation. After enjoying a soothing beverage and calming moment, you can continue your day with a clear mind, increased focus, and a boost of positivity.
After your meditation, welcome back!
You are very welcome to share any thoughts or experiences you had during tea time. Share some pics of your tea, your plans for the rest of the week, or just talk about what’s on your mind today.
The New Moon in the sky above, the coming of spring, and Ostara right around the corner make a wonderful opportunity to get a head start on spring cleaning
And no better place to start than within ourselves- let go of negative influences and allow yourself to grow unhindered in the coming months!
Sending lots of love and the warmest of thoughts from me to you. Looking forward to sharing a cup!
