Dream Gypsy Dream !
Today is the day ! The day of the Gypsy blog party !
special Thanks to Celia for hosting this event !
What a treat she has created for us !!
I wish I could shower this post with sparkles for you but I'm not a computer whiz ;-)
I did make something special for You though .
That which flickers and dances in the wind yet remains steady.
A candle , a magic candle !
a candle to bring true abundance
if you like you may make up your own prayer/ spell to go along or say this little rhyme
Lord , Lady & Spirit three
bless true abundance upon me
may this Gypsy dream take flight
and bring true wishes in the night .
true abundance falls from stars
when true intent is mine & yours.
this I wish for you
so mote it be
I made the candle yesterday to light today .
You can make one too if you like .
Just use the items you have on hand on spice shelf or in your garden etc.
it is easy breezy to do.
pictures follow below
first collect your dry ingredients , I used lavender, rose, geranium both pink & red , my great Gramma's shamrock ( for the luck of the Irish ☺ )and ivy to bind .
I then have oil, salt & water
dump dry into wet
mix it all up .It turned a gorgeous purple colour
I inscribe symbols on my candle first with a needle for that which I am asking for .
I then coat the candle with the mixture .
see how the pretty petals all dried on .
I am having my gal pals over later tonight for our full moon gathering so I've decorated our space in a gypsy theme .
There will be fire .
I often scry with fire or water
lately the fire seems to have had some difficulty in starting , as if somehow apprehensive , yet once burning she is smooth ans steady never out of control .
I decided to turn my sacred space a little Gypsy for the night
my cousin gave me these lovely flowing pieces of fabric sometime ago and I pulled them out and threw them up.
lol clothes pins come in handy don't they ;-)
I set my bible
tarot , holy water , oil & salt out overnight as I usually do with the growing of the moon
I set one of my little candles out on the tea table .
I make these and they are scented with essential oils and then I add dried flowers to them
I've set up this little tea table thinking perhaps I'll try the tea cup reading thing !
If you want to come back in a few hrs then I'll try and have a few more photos up of the tea leaves etc.
I also want to have a little me time today which means I am going to finish off the trilogy of The Faery Chronicles !
I also am going to make some type of yummy gypsy stew and craving that chili chocolate so that is also going to be a must later in the day .
So that's it for now my gypsy sisters !
for now anyway there is always more to come as the day is still young .
till we meet again donning twirly skirts and dancing with the moonlight !
and again Thanks Sister Celia !
Have Fun !
