My family and I have been able to get away for a few days to our cabin in Tennessee to celebrate Mom’s Day!! Hubby, 2 daughters, son-in-law, grandaughter and my daughter Sara’s nurse are all here. The trip down was uneventful, got here safe and sound and in good time. The weather is gorgeous! Not a cloud in the blue, blue sky and a bit cool, especially for TN this time of year!! It hit 72 today and the next couple of days won’t even hit 70..perfect weather!! We went to an italian/greek restaurant for dinner (Yum) and now baby girl is asleep and the rest of us are relaxing with open windows and enjoying each others company!
Celebrating Mom’s day with my family in Tennessee…priceless! The last time we were down here, there was snow on the mountains! Now everything is green and lush and spring flowers are blooming all over. Thank Goddess, east TN has not had the flooding that has so terribly ravaged western TN..Nashville especially. My heart goes out to everyone there..especially those who have lost family members and property. Between the oil spill and the flooding, Mother Earth is not in very good shape right now. As a lover of our Mother Earth, I know her beauty and her terrible powers to destroy as well. Maybe if we treated her better she would treat us better….
Before we left for this trip I did a Safe travel spell as did my daughter. We are carrying our safety charged amethyst with us in our cars to keep us safe and I am wearing an amethyst ring too. Amethyst is a great stone for protection.
Here is the spell I did:
a white tealight candle
Jasmine essential oil
a good sized amethyst stone
Anoint candle with oil focusing your intention on where you are going and getting there safely. Light the candle and say:
Bless our journey and keep us from harm
With light of protection and amethyst charm
May our path be straight and free from strife
Many more adventures left upon our life
I close this verse, with harm to none
By fire and stone, this spell is done.
Place your amethyst next to the candle and allow the candle to burn out on its own…Anoint the amethyst with the oil and place in your purse or glove box to keep it with you while you travel.
This is a very simple spell but very powerful and for me it has always worked.
I wish all of my readers who are moms, my family and friends who are moms a very Blessed day and may your children show you the love you deserve!!
Blessed Be, Autumn
