Beltane, and May Day, a time of myth, traditions, and flowers

Orange County Local Council of the Covenant of the Goddess

As we come to the close of April, and see the seasons change, we recognize the wheel of the year and the approaching Sabbat. Throughout the world, ancient traditions have been practiced in celebration of May Eve, also known as Beltane, and May Day. They are a 2-day holiday that include the purifying fires on May Eve and the celebrations of May Day with the colorful May pole. We have figures representing the plant kingdom and rituals of fire to cleanse livestock and townspeople, and adorning our environment with flowers.

Establishing a Ritual of Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Self-Care

It is so important to take care of ourselves.

Good Witches Homestead

There’s something to be said about intentionally setting aside time in our hectic schedules to focus entirely on our lives, our bodies and our health (both mental, and physical).

But so often, this is easier typed than done.

I believe in our culture, there’s certain guilt about slowing down, even for a short time, especially when it’s for the sake of our own wellbeing. We’re fascinated by the hustle, by the busyness of it all, and drawn into that hamster wheel of constant productivity, for the sake of getting ahead.

But I can attest, alongside so many others, that establishing a ritual of daily, weekly, and monthly self-care, slowing down and tuning out (in order to really tune in), can greatly benefit whatever your life’s work is. Whatever that hustle is meant for.

HOW TO MAKE GEM ELIXIRS OR CRYSTAL ESSENCES

Good Witches Homestead

Gem elixirs also called crystal essences or crystal waters, have been used by many throughout the ages. They are a convenient way to use the vibrational energies of the crystals for crystal healing, magick, and more. They are easy to make and can be stored for later use.

You can use one crystal, several, or even several different types to make a gem elixir. Using multiple types creates a synergy blend, which is useful for bringing together the vibrations of several stones as more than the sum of the parts, so to speak.

I recommend creating gem elixirs using what is called the indirect method, and I outline it below. This method is the safest for all crystal types because the elixir waters do not come in direct contact with the stones used. The direct method — where the stones are placed directly in the water — can be potentially…
