@Garnet May I interest you in one more? :wink: :tropical_drink: :joy:

@Debra2 Siofra said it beautifully and I totally agree- the challenges exist to help and encourage, I think it defeats the point if doing one takes away from necessary time for self-care! You are going through so much right now and are absolutely right to take all the time and energy you need to focus on yourself :heart: And, just like Siofra says, the next Catch-Up challenge isn’t too far away- there will be more chances to do this challenge in the future! So no worries at all, sending love and light your way Debra! :sparkles:

@Siofra_Strega What a lovely meditation! Sunshine and crystals and bare feet in the earth- I feel energized just visualizing it :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: I’m glad you enjoyed such a lovely meditation and I hope the good energy continues to flow for you! Thanks for sharing, Siofra :sun_with_face:

@Jessica72 As always, your entries are so much fun to read- I really love your style of writing! :clap: Citrine is such a lovely stone to accompany you for the meditation, and it sounds like it all went very well! I love the sound of the Self-Conifdence Sun Ritual too, thank you for sharing it! And gosh the sunflower spell is so sweet- my mother has grown sunflowers in her garden a few times over the years and they would be amazing in sun spellwork :sunflower: May your sunflower seeds blossom as beautifully as your spellwork- great job and thank you so much for sharing the great resources, Jessica! :heart:

@RyuWyn You’re very welcome! Agreed, it is a wonderful time of year to appreciate the sun and incorporate it into spellwork :blush: Those sounds like lovely plans- wishing you a very blessed meditation and sun salutation! Let us know how they go for you! :sun_with_face:

@Jeannie1 Awesome, Jeannie! :star_struck: Can’t wait to hear what you decide on :blush:

@Kasandra That is a lovely gift from your friend- you found such a great way to incorporate the dandelion petals in your Yule spellwork! :sparkles: Sun salts are a wonderful Yuletide craft, wishing you all the best with your spellwork!

@Francisco Hope the clouds will take a rest and you can find more sunlight this season, Francisco! :sun_with_face: Those are great resources about solar deities, thank you so much for sharing them!

@Amethyst Ohhhh is this a tea/drink prayer I see here? :star_struck: I love the idea of toasting the sun as it rises, what a great concept for a prayer! :raised_hands: And as always, your words knock it out of the park- this reads so beautifully, Amethyst :two_hearts: And I know it’s not always necessary to include, but you nailed the rhyming too- it really flows as it is being read! Great job :grinning:

@Mary25 What a find, Mary- that’s a gorgeous talisman (and a great price too)! :heart_eyes: Lovely work with consecrating the talisman and congrats on your first week working in your new magickal space! And ohhhh look at that lovely altar stone- that is a worthy Yule present and will surely make a stunning addition to your altar space :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Great job and thanks for sharing!

@Christina4 It sounds like some very peaceful and powerful grounding work with your salts and crystals, Christina! And I think you enjoyed the sun’s blessings too- it really sounds like a warm and lovely meditation :person_in_lotus_position: :sun_with_face: Congrats to your kitty momma, she is lucky to have you nearby to save her and the kittens! May they all be healthy and well :black_cat: :two_hearts:

I just couldn’t think of something wonderful to submit for our
Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE - Solar Magick
but Let me start with 10 songs about sun/sunshine

  1. “Pocketful of Sunshine” by Natasha Bedingfield
  2. “Walking on Sunshine” by Katrina and The Waves
  3. “Ain’t No Sunshine When She’s Gone” by Bill Withers
  4. “Seasons in the Sun” by Westlife
  5. “The Sound of Sunshine” by Michael Franti & Spearhead
  6. “Trip Around the Sun” by Kenny Chesney
  7. “Sunshine Song” by Jason Mraz
  8. “Brighter Than the Sun” by Colbie Callait
  9. I Can See Clearly Now" by Johnny Nash
    10.Saturday Sun" by Vance Joy

Here, I’ll stop before the boredom sets in’

But my favorite lyrics:
I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way.
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun shiny day!
What can be more magical that that?

Bri, thanks for the offer but more than 2 and I’d have to be wheeled home in a wheelbarrow. :see_no_evil: :hear_no_evil: :speak_no_evil: :kiss:

It went very good. I meditated with the mantra Ram and always breathing visualizing a fire growing in my stomach, I also used my tiger’s eye.

Thanks for the challenge again!

Solar Plexus Healing

I decided to focus on healing my solar plexus for this challenge. I thought that I’d do a simple grid as my energy has been really low. So, I started working with full chakra grid and it didn’t feel right. I was going to use the sanskrit image but was drawn to this celtic sun knot image. :sunny:

(10:10 am) While drinking my coffee with Rio, our sweet dog I remembered a somatic technique to relax your kidneys and adrenal glands. I plan on doing this later on today. :raised_hands:t4:

(2:00pm) After a beautiful walk in the sun collecting some falling cedar branches it was time for some deep healing. :relieved: With a warm compress on my mid back and my hand under one kidney at a time to support them and let them relax and plump up again. This was exactly what I needed. Thank you Solar Magick challenge for shining a light in this direction. :orange_heart:

How to heal adrenal fatigue by working with stress organs - Irene Lyon. The technique starts at the 8:30 mark.

My Solar Magick entry, I made Miss @MeganB Sunshine Oil.


I dried the orange peel then added all my firey holiday favorites!

Nutmeg
Chamomile
Then topped it with olive oil. I started it on the 17th and have been shaking everyday. I can’t wait until it’s done. It smells so good!

My Weekly Witchy Challenge - Solar Magick entry

I had a hard time choosing what to do for this challenge. I decided to try using Sunlight to Charge Magickal Tools on my two newest Tarot decks.


Luckily it was a sunny day today after a few days of rain and I was able to charge them both in the sun. I’m looking forward to using this technique on other magickal items, perhaps I will charge my bronze rune set when I complete them!

Blessed be,

Kat

I struggled and for a while I felt Ra calling me, well here it goes! “All seeing one” this speaks to me I want to see In mythology, horus plunged out a eye :eye: of set and was restored! I thought of the shit I’ve been through and felt maybe if I honor Ras energy he could restore me, It is believed to have healing and protective energies and it was used as an amulet so I bought one to use! I think I could get this as a tattoo too, hopefully soon one day. The symbol is divided into six parts and I could use smell, sight, thought, hearing, taste and touch! I did leave out a lemon as an offering and did a prayer request to Ra by using spells 8! On the homepage the solar disk prayer I gave him sandalwood!
Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra Ra
:sun_with_face:your golden rays shine​:hugs:
:shield:your protective shield is massive
intertwined with this sight you bring light :high_brightness:
You warm me, healing me internally externally
You bring stability and Stabilize!
At your blaze
It’s no maze
conflicts and stressors begin to fade!
Without friction
you melt the worry and sadness with no distress!

This have been an amazing week. I really enjoy sun gazing, and sitting out in the Sun. I felt the sun as been shinning on me so bright this week!
I focused on my solar plexus Chakra , healing myself kf doubtful, thinking , negative energy and hurt and pain.

The sun has reminded me how powerful I am during the day as well as the night. I’m continuing to heal everyday. I carried my tigers eye and rose quartz reminding me of Love, strength and courage that dwells within me. I handled situations thrown at me this week without a thought of negativity or disappointment! I surprised myself , at how graceful I have been. I feel better than I have been feeling in awhile. I also realized I didn’t need sacred place within my home but in nature.
I’ve been sharing space until I’m able to move into my own place again. and haven’t been able to really practice as I’ve been used to doing. This challenge showed me I wasn’t tapping into the great outdoors enough.

I’m looking forward to making the orange healing oil over this weekend when I’ll have the house to myself while my everyone is out . I don’t have to worry about being interrupted or my oil being tampered with.

This is my 2nd challenge I joined in on, I’m so grateful I did. And grateful for all of you . I never feel alone o. This journey since joint this coven​:purple_heart::purple_heart:.
