Early August sees the first harvest of the season and the Pagan festival of Lammas. I thought this would be a good time to take a pause for thought and consider all the ways in which we are blessed, and the many things we have to be thankful for in our lives.
We can consider what harvest we are trying to manifest in our life…..better health, a more fulfilling job, greater love and commitment, more harmonious relationships with family and friends? What constitutes success to you? It is important not to confuse this with other people’s ideas of success or what they feel would make you happy. Meditate on this for a while and see what you come up with. Once you are clear on what you would like to bring into your life, you can use the power of crystals to give your manifestations an extra boost of potency and intensity.
So which crystals will assist with this mission? We are looking particularly at stones that increase abundance and prosperity whilst also adding a shot of joy, exuberance and celebration! The colours of the Sabbat of Lammas are yellow, gold, orange and brown, so stones and crystals that reflect these hues will also work well.
I would recommend Carnelian, Ruby or Amber if you want to increase your sense of joy and celebration in life.
For boosting abundance and prosperity, Green Aventurine, clear Quartz and Citrine (known as the “money stone”) would be ideal.
This would also be the perfect time to extend a sense of gratitude and altruism to Mother Earth and the spirit of Gaia for all the bounty and abundance that she bestows upon us. To help heal earth energies and connect with devic and nature spirits it is a good idea to bury crystals in your garden or grid them in areas which you feel could be in need of a boost of healing energy. It is important to nurture Mother Earth too and honour her with feelings of gratitude and appreciation for all the riches she provides us with. The first harvest is a particularly opportune time to offer up our thanks for all this bounty. Upstairs at Earth Spirit we have our own homage to Gaia with a beautiful nature table we have put together featuring crystals which are especially attuned to earth magic. Pop in and have a look!
Things to wish for this season are – Prosperity, Abundance, Honour & Thanks, Good Fortune, Health and Financial Gain.
