An Herb For Your Use
Discovery of your interaction with it
the act of mixing your own energy with that of the thing you are charging.
Anything used for magical work should be charged.
To charge an
herb is a process of reverence. You must acknowledge the gift of nature,
understand that it will benefit your work and be willing to take its own
force into you.
Take a small
portion of the herb in your dominant hand. Cover it lightly with your
other hand. Close your eyes and begin to breathe deeply. Calm all other
thoughts in your mind. Breathe in fully and breathe out completely.
focus in on the herb between your palms. Visualize the energy from it as
one color and your own as another. Concentrate and picture the energies or
colors slowly mixing, swirling together and becoming one. Feel the pull of
the mixed energies enter you and move up your arms. Color visualization is
one of the easiest forms. Focus all your thoughts on the colors blended
together, moving throughout your body. This will take some practice so
donít be discouraged if the visualization is not strong on the first
attempts. Keep practicing and it will get stronger as you progress.
Note - To
help with your visualization, take a small pinch of the herb, crush it
between your fingertips and release its scent. Take in that aroma. Your
mind will file it as information and you will be able to use the scent to
enhance your perception of the herbís vibrational energy.
Once the herb
is charged (or fully fortified with your energy) it is ready for use.
