Our big Valentines day this year was for healing our family. We have had a rough school year, and after a huge problem with our sitter, we needed a lot of good vibe generation. I really encourage you to attend classes on Wicca and Witchcraft from a local metaphysical shop that is all inclusive, and open minded. The class I am taking now is Witchcraft 101, and the week before Valentines we did elements. It was exactly what I needed. I did a review of our home, and realized our school room needed more earth and air. So these last few days I have been meditating an elements meditation with the kids in the school room. Have you ever tried to meditate with three rambunctious kids? Yeah, the first time is kinda hard, and the kids were more enchanted with the smoke from the incense, than with listening and concentrating. The second time was easier, and we all settled down easily to feel better about ourselves, our school year, and the room we have to educate ourselves. Now I have to figure out how to balance fire at work, but boosting it in some people, and dampening it in others. 🙂
Then Valentines day came along, and here are some of the crafts we did:
We took shaving cream, and spread paint on top of it, and swirled it around. Then we put watercolor paper over that, and that made swirled colored paper, in which we cut out into hearts for cards for each other. I took felt, cut out hearts and sewed them together, with Jasmine for vitality, chamomile for health, and lavender for snuggles and love inside. These we have under our pillows to give us sweet dreams until next Valentines.
And because we live on the eastern seaboard, we had some quality learning time as well during the snow storm outside:
Happy Belated Valentines Day Everyone!
