A Celtic spell to help with the winter blues
-a large circle of yellow cloth
-St. John's Wort oil
-two yellow candles
Spread the yellow cloth on the floor and sprinkle with a few drops of blood-red St. John's Wort Oil.
Anoint the candles with several more drops of oil.
Divide the flowers into two bunches.
Seat yourself at the center of the circle of cloth and place a bunch of flowers at the edge of the cloth on each side of you.
Light the candles and place them at the edge of the cloth, in front and behind you.
Pick two full, perfect blooms and hold one in the upright palm of each hand.
Focus your mind on the glow of the candle in front of you and chant:
"oh, healing light, surround me now,
relieve my spirit's darkest hour"
Imagine the scented light being drawn from the candles into the flowers on your palms and from there feel it permeating the whole of your body.
Try to keep this concentration for about 20 minutes and when you rise the melancholy will fall from you.
To complete the spell, take the two flowers in your hands and give them back to Mother Earth.
