Making Moon Water

Moon Water

The phases of the Moon have influence over the earth and presents itself in the tides of not only the ocean but in our body.  Up to 60% of an adult body is water, it only makes sense that we are affected by the phases of the moon.

Let’s harness the power of the moon with water.

  1. For the best results use rain water or other natural water source (like a creek or a lake). You may always collect snow if possible and save it for your moon water. If you do not have access to a natural water source its okay to use water from a faucet. There are no stern rules however, natural elements that you personally collected hold so much of your intention. I have always felt your quest for elements from the earth lend to your magic. Make sure you use purified, spring or distilled water if you are going to ingest your moon water.
  • Use a mason jar or other covered vessel, fill with water and place it in line with the moon. It’s not always possible to see the moon however, the beams will connect with the water through its gravitational vibrations. Near a window is the perfect spot or a patio or garden. It’s always a mystical adventure to place it outdoors. Exposed to the moon and earth.
  • If you like, add a clear quartz crystal to your moon water. This will not only cleanse your crystal it will empower your water with positive energy.
  • Hold the vessel in your hands close to your body, close your eyes. Envision the purpose of your enchantment and feel the warmth of your body as you cradle the water, do what comes to you, your water is alive and will graciously serve you.
  • Position your vessel facing the moon and leave it there overnight. The next morning come and collect your water. I always like to wrap my jar gently, with special cloth protecting it from the any other influence until I am ready to use it. Tie it with ribbon or twine and label the moon phase and date.

Here are some of the ways you might use your moon water

Use a few drops of your moon water in your bath water. Include a drop or two of your favorie oil and add some rose petals or yarrow flowers for happiness.

You may always water your garden with a bit of your moon water.

Add a few drops to you pets water or your tea.

Create a spritzer bottle of lavender, sage and rosemary with water- consciously add a few drops of your moon water and use to diffuse your space or linens.

Add a few drops of your moon water whenever you are called to- and get creative.

Enchanted Laundry

There are many ways for you to bring magic into your life, and one of them is through the seemingly mundane task of doing laundry.

We place crystals and jewelry in a bed of salt, bathe in imbued herbs, anoint ourselves with water and oils. Why would we not consider our clothing?

Clothing is often overlooked as a carrier of energy. Yet, it is one of the most common items to bring back memories and all that it carries with it. We sleep in our lover’s t-shirt or save a bandana from a favorite concert. How long have you had your coat or a pair of boots? Consider the encounters they hold with it.

Clothing is power, defines who we are, from a hipster or a fashion diva your clothes speak volumes. It only makes sense that it carries with it the energy it attracts. How many times do you change for that date or interview, dressing for a meeting or notable encounter? Unconsciously we are aware of the impression that is brought through our selection of clothing and the enchantment it brings.

What thoughts enter your mind when you see your special clothing packed away or hanging in a closet? So often the ewes and aahs are heard with the pleasure or disappointment it carries. Emotional ties often bind us to energy in our clothing . It is key to use our senses , enhance our thoughts and mentally visualize our experiences while cleansing all negativity attached to it.

In our modern lifestyles we tend to dry our clothing with unnatural or forced air. Why not incorporate the historic use of a clothes line when possible? Either in the windy sun of a hot day, or in your apartment with an imbued candle with incense burning nearby. Let the aromatics of herbs bring nature to your senses and invite the energy you desire to project.

Reflect upon your intention, close your eyes, open your heart and imbue the herbs (just a tiny pinch) with your vision and desires as you add it to your load of laundry as it washes. You may do same in your dresser drawers or make a spritz with your herbs and water to spray the inside of your washing machine or dryer.

Love : Basil, Thyme or Yarrow Protection: Angelica, Rosemary or Bay Leaf Happiness: Lavender, Hyacinth or Lily

It’s best to stay away from herbs that bleed like Hibiscus or Cornflower as it may stain. Just a pinch of herb enchanted with your intentions will do it.
