Earlier today three branches feel from our front tree. I felt the urge to go scrounge around and find something natural from it but I didn't. But I still felt like I needed to find something in nature..... later on I found the Anise Talk about Harvesting!
Here is the Anise
I explained to Kailey that today is a holiday, two in fact. I explained that it is Mabon (she had fun saying that) and that it is also a full moon. During holidays it's a time to use crystals and herbs (since she was sitting next to the kitchen altar I figured it was best to point those out) and make wishes. They help us make our wishes come true.. like magic! Her eyes LIT UP! "I wanna do magic!!!" I told her that now is the time to harvest and you gather your items from your garden and plants and herbs that you need.
So, I showed Kailey what the Anise was, where I found it. We thanked the herb and I explained that it helps w/ stomach problems, it's used to make cookies and cakes, you can drink it as a tea and it also helps you sleep/dreams. She held the string while I gathered the stuff to dry it and explained that we use the seeds of the plant and it dries upside down so the bag can catch the seeds.
Please dry with all of your magical properties.
Please dry with all of your magical powers TOO CUTE!
After Nola falls asleep we will do reflection of the past year and what we wish for next year
Well, Kailey got sick tonight so it was off to bed w/ her. However I did decide to prune and dry my basil.
It now looks so small!

I gathered a bowl full of moon water from the storm since I can't SEE the moon or Jupiter tonight. Cleansed ALL of my crystals (except the ones that can't go in water).
Then I performed my ritual in the shower (after the physical cleaning though ).
I gotta say, the crystals had MUCH more of an impact. I could feel their energy much better.
I then gave thanks to all that needed and performed a money/prosperity spell (coins in moon water).
Now I'm super charged instead of yawning. I asked for all my guides and God(s) to send me a message in dream land tonight. I also accepted/apologized/recognized some things that I was doing wrong that I'm really ready to change. As soon as I did this I had a flash of an olive branch Guess that means I'm forgiven!!
Get out of the shower and DH tells me he wants to TTC.
