ugh, babes, how many of you are spending all this time at home, isolating, introspecting, and picking yourselves apart?
a little self-honesty is important, for sure, but there’s a fine line between being honest with ourselves and being horrible to ourselves, right?
i’m usually totally fine with who i am, where i am, what i look like, how i feel, and where i’m going…99% of the time. but lately, i’ve been having trouble resisting the pull of self-criticism and internally imposed limitations. maybe just all this time i can’t spend doing other things or maybe that particularly rough mercury retrograde, or who knows.
so i created this spell to use with my love spell oil and i have to be honest. i cried this morning repeating this to myself, admitting all the years i wasn’t very nice to myself and said terrible things to myself because, well, that’s what we’re taught as young girls all through life…you’re never good enough.
but i am good enough. you are good enough and we are good enough.
what you will need:
- a crystal(s) of choice (i used rose quartz and smoky quartz)
- an oil or blend of oils of choice; i blend special spell oils, but a simple rose essential oil in a carrier base such as almond or jojoba will do the trick nicely if you have nothing else on hand
- a quiet place
dab the oil on your chest, arms, forehead or any other area you want to focus. simply anointing yourself just over your heart is enough. do not rub the oil in yet, let it run as it will over your skin while you repeat the following, as many times as you feel you need:
“i see me now
in present form
how my words have harmed
from this point
i look upon me with loving eyes
all past doubt
and self-hate dies
i am glowing, beautiful
from crown to toes
through my veins
only this love flows”
as you recite this, picture a glowing orb, whatever color represents healing and love to you, beginning from the crystals you hold and radiating into your hands, then flowing up your arms, into your heart, and downward throughout your torso, hips, reaching your legs, knees, and finally your feet. as it does this, it also flows upward through your chest, neck and head, covering your crown. you are glowing with this love.
hold this sensation for several deep breaths and forgive your past harsh words. look at yourself through your third eye and see how beautiful you really are. y0u are a gift.
feel free to open yourself, let emotions out, purge them if you need to. now is the time to let them go. the full moon this week should be a time of growth and anything holding you back does not serve you anymore.
once you feel you are finished and your words have indicated your intent, rub the oil into your skin, taking deep breaths in and out. this is the new you. love this version of you unconditionally.
