Mother Earth is grandiose in every way. She is a true Goddess. As ruler of the Muladhara Chakra the mechanism of her organism works in perfect harmony, according to her needs, just as our bodies work in harmony to meet our needs. Her surface is a beautiful interpretation of Her Soul, and Her core, we see its reflection in Her strength.
Its not just about the big things, like landscapes, oceans, mountains and deserts, but its also about the little things, the flowers that grow wild, big and small, the seeds that germinate in the ground and transform into trees, those subtle rays of sunshine that everyday fill me up of energy and give me clarity. It is during these “Godly moments” that I am revealed how things are, how life is. I call this reading the Earth. Standing by a window and gazing out at the trees and the sky and whatever perfect picture Nature has painted in front of me this moment, and then the breeze that makes its way in and caresses my face; I take in the beauty, in awe. Life is beautiful, and Nature is the Artist.
Earth is a holy body of Mother Nature, Her surface is the skin, beautiful, green, fresh. Earth Mother carries us in Her arms, provides us a home, our real home while we journey through this life. It is a fact that the core of Earth emanates a vibration that sounds like a heartbeat, and our heartbeats are in synchronization with it of Earth Mother. The awareness of this synchronization is a way to read the earth. She speaks in the wind and in the trees, She speaks to us all, her creatures, humans, animals and plants.
Mother Earth is our home, we can never be homeless and we can never get lost.
She is our teacher. When we observe how she works through her cycles we learn to move through our own. She has ways of giving the signs of change, and the more we connect with the Earth the sooner we learn to notice these signs.
She is our healer and provider, for everything we need to live a healthy life is given to us in the Earth.
She is our role model, and when we learn to follow in Her steps we will learn to get along, coexist and be united.
She is our friend, always there for us, even those times when we think we’re all alone and no one can hear us, She can.
Mother Earth gives us everything we need for everything we need.
How To Establish A Close Relationship With Mother Earth
– meditate with nature. When we take a moment to contemplate on the beauty of nature we are meditating with nature. Find a place where nature surrounds you. If this is not possible, even sitting near a plant, flowers or a tree helps. For a moment allow yourself to relax, take a few deep breaths and let your mind and spirit do the rest.
– ask and you shall receive. Mother Earth is always listening, remember to ask before taking a flower, a leaf, a branch or a tree. She appreciates it and will reward you for your kindness and courtesy. Consider this a Universal Divine Law.
– listen. A healthy conversation is like a two way street, sometimes we speak to Mother Earth and sometimes we listen. Open the ears of the soul and you will hear Her.
– don’t hate weather changes. There is a reason for each season and Mother Earth knows best. Change brings progress, engage in happy
– give thanks. Showing our appreciation for all the beautiful things Mother Earth provides for us is an excellent way to interact with Her, and getting to know Her well.
– join the community. Working with the community as one towards Peace creates a special kind of vibratory frequency which reaches the farthest depths of the Earth, where She can feel what we feel in our hearts.
It is a known fact that positive energy has a strong effect on living beings and the happier we are the more beautiful the Earth gets.
In Joy & Divine Love, Blessed be.

The season of summer is upon us now, the garden is in full swing, so why not take advantage of the flowers and plants that are available to us and work a little magic with the spirits of nature and the tides of the Moon as we celebrate this lush and fertile season of summer. We have three prime days for summertime magic this month: the Flower Moon on June 18, the Summer Solstice on June 20, and the old Mid-summer’s Eve, which is celebrated at dusk in June 24.
For a Flower Moon celebration you can easily incorporate any white of pink blooming flowers in the garden.
The rose is a prime flower for summer magic – some traditions even call the June Full Moon the Rose Moon. Try white roses to honor the Moon and the Lady, pink roses to promote friendship and gentle affection, or red roses to work a sultry summertime spell for love.
A Full Moon Love Spell
Work the following Full Moon spell outdoors. Sprinkle some fresh rose petals all around you in a circle. Use white petals to honor the Moon Goddess -and the Fairies, red for desire and passion, and pink petals for the fun and joy of being in a romantic relationship.
Repeat the following verse, and save a handful of petals to close out the spell:
On this, the longest night of the Full Flower Moon,
I ask the Goddess to grant me a boon.
White flower petals for the Lady, and red petals for desire,
Pink petals for joy and the fun they inspire.
Now increase romance, send loving passion to me,
By rose petals and the power of three times three.
As I will, so let it be!
Now look up to the Full Moon, blow the Goddess a kiss, and toss the remaining rose petals up as high as you can. Leave the petals where they fall, and know that romance is on its way.
A Summer Solstice Celebration
To celebrate the Summer Solstice, try working with the cheerful sunflower. Just as you’d expect, this flower has the planetary aspects of the Sun, and in the language of flowers it symbolizes success, fame and riches. Imagine a Sabbat celebration with golden candles and tall stems of yellow sunflowers arranged across the work area. Light the golden candles and turn to face the Sun. Announce out loud your goals for a successful life. Then repeat the following verse three times:
On this, the longest day and shortest night,
O work to bring my hopes and dreams to light.
Like a golden sunflower, I turn to face the Sun,
Grant me success and happiness, and let it harm none.
Allow the candles to burn in a safe place until they go out on their own. Let the sunflowers dry out and then let the birds have the seeds as a snack.
Ritual for Midsummer’s Eve
For Midsummer’s Eve, you could try your hand at fairy magic. Faeries love fragrant flowers like roses and blooming herbs. And don’t forget those ferns! Ferns are sacred to the fairy folk, and adding a few fern fronds to your Midsummer bouquets is a sure way to honor the power of the fairy kingdom. Daisies, yarrows and lavender should be blooming now, so put those blossoms together and weave a little flower fascination for good luck and prosperity in the coming year. Create a small flower bouquet and tie it together with pretty ribbons.
Now take the fairy bouquet and go to a place in nature, and repeat the following charm:
At this time of Midsummer’s Eve, the Fae are all around,
On this ancient day, it’s said, fairy magic shall be found.
This bouquet a;; wrapped in ferns, I offer you as a token,
Grant my request for good luck and health, as this charm is spoken.
Be sure to leave that little bouquet outdoors for the fairies. Allow nature to reclaim it.
Have a magical summer!!
