I am so sad and so upset about what is happening in the Gulf with the oil spill. They call it a spill for one thing! Seriously!! Hasn’t it gone way way WAY past a “spill”!!! I would call it a huge monsoon, typhoon, hurricane of a oil catastrophe!! I can’t believe that BP has no idea how to fix this in a timely manner! Did they ever think “what if?” this happened??? What if that happened?? Oh my Goddess!!
There are people out of work because they can’t fish, there are restaurants who can’t get fish to serve their customers, New Orleans is getting hit hard..again! But the worse thing is the long term destruction to our ocean, its occupants, the wetlands, the beaches, and the other animals such as birds, turtles, snakes etc that survive and live in those areas. The longer the oil is allowed to gush..the more years it will take to clean it up and the more time it has to destroy life and professions. It is a major calamity of epic proportion and the extent of it hasn’t even began to come out yet!
I am a witch and honor our Earth Mother in my everyday life..in every way I can. This hurts to the core. But it shouldn’t matter what your religion, creed, race, class…it should be devastating to us all! But because I’m a witch, I believe that I can add my voice the the prayers, spells, rituals, requests, that are going out all over the USA…
I have written a charm that I’m doing every day ..at least until the “spill” is stopped. I’m sharing it here with you..
Light a blue candle, anoint it with peppermint oil for healing, protection and purification. Light the candle…
Focus your intent into the candle..if you can do this spell by a body of water..even better!
O Goddess of the stars, moon and sun
Let thy love and healing come
To Earth who is my mother
Please help Her to recover
Her oceans and land are in great need
Because of our own uncaring deeds
Bless her and heal her, make her whole again
Now let the healing power begin
By candle and scent, and prayers to thee
As I will it, so mote it be.
Do this often and with great intent! I know I am!
I pray and implore that we learn a lesson in this terrible tragedy, Blessings to you all and Blessings to our Mother Earth…
