Calling all brujas: I woke up this morning after a flurry of wild dreams and it dawned on me that our greatest weapon against evil, hatred and greed doesn’t lie in a constant squall of posts on Facebook or Twitter. It doesn’t lie in watching the news and being bombarded, daily, by whatever new horror is coming out of our nation’s capital. It’s good to stay informed, but do it in small increments. You can learn all you need to know by spending a half hour a day checking reliable sources. We don’t need to be inundated every second of every day. That shit will drain your energy and leave your adrenals looking like raisins.
Our greatest weapon lies in action and intention and the joining together as healers, warriors and activists. Facebook isn’t going to cut it.
In addition to posting Luna Joon things, I’ll be focusing on some ancient rituals wise women have been using for years to heal wounds; our wounds as well as the national wounds of xenophobia, unchecked power-grabbing, misogyny, homophobia, lies and unbridled greed. It is time for a shift in paradigm, and I believe we can help that shift along. We are birthing creatures, from maidens to mothers to crones. As girls we birth creativity and playfulness and knowledge; as mothers we birth children and gardens and ideas, and as crones we birth wisdom, healing and everlasting change.
So let’s get down to business. This week I am gathering items to BANISH all negative energy around me and to spread that banishing intention straight to Washington D.C.
First of all, you’ll need a place to put all your items that you will be gathering this week. This must be a sacred space in your home or outside, where items you place won’t be messed with by others.
These are the items you will want to gather: a sage wand, a piece of paper (parchment is an excellent choice), black salt (grind charcoal and sea salt together…it should look something like this:),
…a photo (if there is a specific person or persons who embody the negative things we are banishing), a candle (a black candle works best, but if you can’t find a black candle, any type will do…even a tealight), a fireproof bowl or shell (see below), one of the following essential oils – clary sage, clove, or frankincense, and either rosemary or basil (fresh or dried).
While you are gathering these things over the next few days, put your intentions into every item as you pick them up, handle them and arrange them on your sacred space. Imagine all evil packing its bags and leaving our nation’s capital in disgrace. Imagine love and light replacing that evil. Think about banishing corruption and replacing it with cooperation, unity, diversity, compassion and love.
On Friday, February 10th, anyone who would like to participate in using these items for their intentions are invited to do so. In the meanwhile, keep working (calling your state representatives, writing letters, practicing self and other care and connecting with the divine power of the source of all creation inside of you). In a few days, I will be posting how to use these items on the full moon (2/10) for those who are not familiar with the process.
I’m coming out of the closet today, and will be using my blog, my voice and my abilities as a bruja to shift the inevitable paradigm. The more who join, the better. You don’t have to be a bruja to do this. Women have gathered for centuries to use the elements of the earth and intentions in order to bring goodness and healing into the world. Have you ever made a wish while blowing out candles on a birthday cake? This is no different; it’s just amplified ritual. I’m a follower of Jesus the Christ and the Divine Source of all creation who sent Him. It doesn’t matter your religion or your beliefs…you are a woman, and you have the gift. This is prayer intensified, pure and simple.
I’ll also be focusing on the creative energy that is Luna Joon, and the wonderful city that is Tulsa…but right now there are some significantly pressing matters to address.
Please join me.
