The Sea Witch
The Sea Witch watches the Sunset from the beach…vivid oranges and pinks to deep purples and dark blues..and finally darkness. As she stands with her feet in the warm current of the ocean, the sand slipping away from under her bare feet, she quietly observes the Full Moon rise up and over the blue-black water of the ocean. It is the Harvest Moon….deep red, then warm orange, pale yellow, then bright white as She rises majestically in the star filled sky. She lights a candle and casts a circle. Pulling crystals from her pocket, she buries them in the sand with quiet words spoken from the heart. She calls forth the elements, all four right there with her…Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Then invoking the Goddess, asking Her to attend, to lead, to love her thru her ritual. She feels Her near…
The Sea Witch raises her arms to the sky to draw in the energy from the Moon Goddess. Beneath her feet, she feels the earth moving, warm water lapping, soft breeze caressing, the flame of the candle flickering… and the tingling and warmth in her body, heart and soul as she connects with her Goddess, feels the energy, strong and sure, coursing through her. Both calming and exhilarating, joy and peace fills her as the energy builds within her. She wants to laugh and she wants to cry, and the beauty of the moment engraves itself on her mind and heart forever. She sinks into the sand to rest, to ground and center, to have a glass of wine. She pours some of the wine into the ground as an offering.
Taking a few more minutes to meditate, the sound of the ocean soothing her, the bright light of the Moon shining on the white sand, the scents swirling around her..the Sea Witch thanks the Goddess for the blessings in her life. She thanks the elements for their attendance, takes down her circle, and snuffs the flame of the candle. With renewed energy and feeling very blessed, she goes back to her loved ones…… who wait.
