Tea is something that has been shared across cultures throughout time as a way of encouraging social bonding and supporting local economies. As a solitary teatime ritual, brew your favorite cup and sit in a dimly lit space with only yourself and the warm beverage. Warm your hands by gripping the mug. Inhale the sensual vapors steaming from the cup. Think about the different ingredients in your vessel, and take a sip to slowly taste the flavorful bouquet.Visualize the beverage engulfed in a healing white light swirling in a deosil (clockwise) fashion. Bring to mind the areas of your life where you truly wish to invoke healing. See the beverage surrounded by the colors of the rainbow (or chakras), one by one: violet, indigo, blue, green, yellow, orange, and red. As you sip the tea, see its energy entering your chakras and your body. Finish by seeing yourself bathed in a healing white light that you will carry forth into your everyday reality.

In the household I grew up in, Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement in Judaism) meant a day and evening of phone calls where forgiveness was asked for and granted. While the practice can help us improve our relationships with other people, it can be a lot harder to forgive ourselves.For this spell, gather these items:* A pen* A sheet of paper* A lighter or match* A cauldronMeditate on something youandrsquo;ve had a hard time forgiving yourself for. On the paper, write:I forgive myself for _______.Sign it and fold the paper into thirds. Then fold it again in thirds in the other direction until you have a folded square of nine sections.Carefully light the paper over your cauldron and drop it inside to burn, saying three times:Forgiveness and peace, love and release.Once it has burned out, compost the ashes.
Work this spell with three or m ore friends, family members, or loved ones or with your magical group. Youandrsquo;ll need a large ball of yarn or string.Tie one end of the ball of yarn around one personandrsquo;s wrist. That person begins, mentioning something theyandrsquo;re grateful for and adding details as desired. They then pass or toss the ball to another person, ideally someone across from them. That person wraps the string (not too tightly!) around their own wrist, mentions something theyandrsquo;re grateful for, and tosses the ball to another person. This continues until no one has anything left to mention. People might then mention goals or perhaps something theyandrsquo;re concerned about and need support for.When itandrsquo;s time to conclude, ask everyone present to marvel at the web that has been woven and how interconnected the strands are. Say together:Each of us is but a strand, buttogether we raise power andstrength. So mote it be!
