For years now I’ve practiced what I love to refer to as Nature Magic. Whenever we’re out in nature, be it a beach, forest, wood or even a park, there is so much we can do to send our wishes out to the Universe and receive wonderful signs, symbols and rewards back. If we tune in to Mother Nature regularly our lives become filled with joy and magic. We see through eyes of wonder which in turn keeps us feeling optimistic and positive.
Children love this kind of magic and adding their energy to our dreams and wishes is very special. Here are some nature magic ideas you might like to try, I do them with or without my children on a regular basis.
Make a nature picture or mandala using twigs, leaves, rocks, seeds. Whatever you can find. Focus on a goal or dream or make a wish as you’re creating then when you leave, offer it as a gift to the Goddess/nature spirits/elementals.
Whenever you find a feather, make a wish or state an intention and blow it away, visualising a magic golden energy around it and you. (We also do this with what are known in Lancashire as sugar stealers)
Catch a falling leaf. Hold to your heart. Make a wish. Float it down the river or place it somewhere special.
For releasing negative energy. Stand by a river, lake or sea. Gather a pile of rocks or pebbles. Throw each one, with force, into the water stating what you wish to let go of. ‘ I release all anger’ ‘I release all fear’ ‘ I let go of all limiting beliefs’ Anything you want to be free of. You can spend 5 minutes or an hour doing this depending on your mood. It’s very powerful.
Hug a special tree or sit under it and whisper to it your hopes and fears, dreams and visions. Then still your mind and wait to see if it offers any guidance.
A lovely one for children(and adults) this time of year is to pick a piece of fruit hold it in your hand and say ‘May I be blessed with….a surprise/a gift/something special.’ Then eat it and say thank you.❤
