A warm welcome to all!
I hope everyone enjoyed last week’s tea celebrations! This week takes a different theme, inspired by a holiday honoring those who promote justice
As mentioned in this week’s Merry Meet Monday, the holiday Amnesty International Day is happening this week.
If you haven’t heard of the organization before, Amnesty International is an NGO (non-governmental / non-profit) group whose mission is to empower those whose voices go unheard and protect human rights around the world

In line with the theme of justice, this week’s tea meditation invokes the Goddess Hectate- Queen of the Night, Upholder of Justice, and Goddess of the Crossroads .
As a powerful force of righteousness, karma, and unveiling secrets to find the truth- Hecate is a powerful diety to call upon when banishing evil, seeking justice, and upholding righteousness
This week, join your coven to share a cup that seeks to maintain peaceful balance and uphold the value of justice

Find some time to join in for shared spellwork and 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!
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 - May 27) : Hecate’s Justice
This week’s tea meditation seeks justice for the drinker through invoking Hecate. The original spells is the Spells8 Hecate’s Justice Devotional that has been adapted to best suit a tea meditation.

Prepare your drink of choice, practicing deep breathing and mindful movements.
Place your ready cup on a flat space in front of you- such as table, counter, or floor.
Take three deep and slow breaths as you watch the ripples of your drink rest into calmness, the surface of your drink becoming a flat mirror reflecting the world.
Call upon the Goddess Hecate, representative of justice with Her prayer:
I humbly invoke you, night-wanderer of the underworld,
Queen of the dead.
Mother of darkness, give me wisdom. Give me strength.
I am your humble servant.
I receive your power, your balanced wisdom, intelligence and mercy.
Your inner beauty, your sense of justice,
the victory of the spirit over matter.
Send me your dreams, visions, astral travels, apparitions,
I will be quiet as a reliable channel for your spiritual wisdom.
I embrace your gifts. I embrace your past and future of victory.
I accept you as my Goddess.
I am your humble servant.
[Full prayer on the Hecate Devotional Page]
When your meditation is complete, enjoy the good vibes! Meditation helps to foster a clear mind, increased focus, and boost of positivity- carry these good feelings with you through the rest of your day or night!
