On the nineth day of Yule the Goddess gave to me... Strength
Unshakeable resolve, calm composure and patience, compassion, persuasion and soft control, tempered force. 9th December Compassion, courage, patience, control of emotions and...faith. Today is about believing in yourself and in your own inner strength and talents. You have courage, you have compassion, you have faith and you can keep those emotions in check...now go kick some butt! Candle spell for inner strength Today we are gonna burn stuff!
You will need a cauldron or flame proof container.
I like a red or yellow candle for this go with what works for you. Place the candle in a holder and you might like to pop a couple of crystals around the base, citrine, garnet or lapis lazuli all work well.
Then you need a slip of paper and a pen or pencil.
Light the candle and sitting quietly in front of it write down any fears or worries that you have onto the slip of paper (you can use more than one piece of paper).
Then take the slip of paper and light the edge in the flame of the candle, visualising the flame burning away your fears and worries, drop the paper into the cauldron to burn out.
Once the paper has burnt, focus back on the candle flame and fill the space that your fear and worry has left with positive energy focusing on inner strength and peace.
Allow the candle to burn out and dispose of the paper ashes outside, throw them to the wind or bury them. The tarot deck used is Shadowscapes by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law & Barbara Moore www.shadowscapes.com
