Originally crafted for the Virgo New Moon, September 19th, 2017, this Relaxation Ritual is great to use for centering yourself before any magical workings or whenever you need an infusion of calmness and peace. For times when gentle healing is desired, I suggest working with the following healing herbs and crystals. Use a combo of your favorites below to create ritual baths, incense, candle dressings, teas, or simply to carry with you in a pouch to help create harmony and healing.

Step 1: Find a space where you will be undisturbed. I always park myself on my meditation cushion in front of my altar. Feel free to light candles, hold crystals, burn incense…whatever tools infuse your body and mind with peace and help you relax and drop in. You can lie down if you’d rather.
Step 2: Begin by visualizing a shining sphere of healing violet light emerging from the earth and rising up just above the crown of your head. Watch as the ball grows bigger and brighter until it is burning and pulsating all around you. This violet light-filled sphere contains all of Mother Earth’s healing energy…its crystal matrix, electrons from the soil, the life-giving chlorophyll of plants. Feel its warmth and potency as it spins around you.
Step 3: Feel as the sphere of energy pours its healing violet light into the crown of your head. Imagine it traveling through the right and left hemispheres of your brain, interacting with your neurons, healing the shadow spots that hide in the recesses of your mind like squatters in an uninhabited building. Follow the violet light down to your eyes, your nose, your face, your mouth. Let it relax every single muscle, from your eye muscles to your jaw, as it travels down to your throat, your chest, your stomach, your gut, your pelvis, your legs, your feet to the tips of your toes. Let the tension go and just melt into relaxation.
Step 4: When you start to tense up in an area, send the violet light back to that area. For as long as you are able, envision your body as a sphere of violet healing light. Imagine that light extending from the crown of your head straight up to the source of all creation. Feel every muscle in every part of your body relax. As thoughts come to you, let the violet light carry them away into the ethers.
Step 5: When you are ready, come out of the meditation using four-fold breath. Inhale to a count of four, hold for a count of four, exhale for a count of four, and hold with empty lungs for a count of four. If you wish to do any ritual magic or prayer, do so now.
