I created a simple altar during a week that had many auspicious energies flowing. This particular week held the energies of the 2015 Blue Moon in Aquarius during the month of Leo. (Our next blue moon will be at the end of January in 2018 during the month of Aquarius.)
Regarding other celestial “weather”, concurrently my location also had the first incoming Perseid meteor showers arriving.
Notably, on the same day of the blue moon was the celebration of Guru Purnima. It is a day where our masters and teachers around the world and across time are celebrated and showered with gratitude for their teachings, and for sharing their enlightenments.
The following day on August 1st brought the celebration of Lammas. In the Wiccan tradition, it is a day to commemorate the sanctity and importance of harvest. For our ancestors, care of the crops meant the difference between life and death. And so on Lammas, life-giving seeds of the earth and harvest are honored, which may also include paying homage to the Sun King.
With so much lovely spiritual and celestial energy flowing, I seized the opportunity to bring this energy together and give honor to the mystical and to the sacred. The blessing over this altar combines the invocation of a Reiki Master, the Usui Reiki healing process and the Gayatri Mantra. Its energy is connected to the crown chakra (sahasrara).
I have meditated on this altar with my personal Reiki blessings shared below. These blessings and intentions should reciprocate positive energy around the world for whomever is open to receiving them.
Great light of the universe, shine on me. Be my friend.
I meditate upon you to illuminate and enlighten and guide me on this path.
With your power within me, I become one with Earth and Sky.
Where we are One on the plane of Ultimate Truth, I am here and now. I am present, perfect and complete.
I am the Past, Present and Future, the seen and unseen.
We are One of Light and Love. May all beings be at ease.
