Greetings Witch Friends!
With the cold Winter days and nights there came a shift in energy…
Although this shift brought us into an emotional unburdening period, it also brought us into Flu Season. Letting go of energies can usually lead to sicknesses, if the process will show you why the blockages are there in the first place. Sometimes coming down with a strong cough, can indicate a lack of vocal expression or, maybe, even, the root of a curse (if you’re into that sort of thing).
I am sad to say I am one of the victims of Flu Season, and thought long and hard about what would wash away my illness, within a 2-3 day time period that is…
Given my knack for snooping in the past, I jogged my memory and used these THREE rituals to enliven me once more!
Tea Tree Steam
Begin by boiling clean water in a cooking pot, making sure to be careful while doing this, you don’t want to injure yourself. When the atmosphere looks steamy, lower the boil as to avoid it bubbling to you. Add 3-4 drops of Tea Tree Oil and stir. Bring the water to a boil once more, making sure to amplify the steam in the atmosphere. Lower the boil once more, place a towel over your head to trap the steam, and inhale the aromas. This will decongest your throat and lungs and will release phlegm.
Tie A Garlic Around Your Headboard
When you have finished with the day and are ready to go off to bed, don’t forget to tie a piece of garlic with healing intent on your headboard (or under your pillow if you don’t mind the smell). You can do this by holding the garlic in your hands, while repeating a healing incantation or spell. An example would be: “Remove the cause of this disease, release me now and set me free”. When you wake up in the morning dispose of it by flushing it down the toilet, as it will have already absorbed the illness.
Immune System Boosting Tonic
Sometimes flus can be tough. This can range from a mild cough and cold, to a full blown fever with every congestion you can imagine. If you need an extra boost to get you through the day, try this Tea Blend: Ginger, Cinnamon and Turmeric. Boil these three in water and drink as you normally would (The ratio is up to you, but I usually add a pinch or two of the spices). When you’re done, heat three tablespoons of raw honey to soothe your throat and wash away the taste.
