Exercise: Create a Symbolic Seed-Planting Tradition in the Fall

This article was written by Llewellyn
posted under Self-Help

Invite friends to gather and celebrate the New Year on October 31 or November 1, which in ancient times for the Celts was celebrated as the New Year. (This also coincides with the Wiccan holiday of Samhain, which signals the beginning of a new turn on the Wheel of the Year.) Hand out a piece of paper to each person at the gathering and ask everyone to write down their resolution. Then take turns reading them aloud to the group to share everyone’s hopes and dreams. During this time, the group offers their encouragement and blessings. As each person finishes reading aloud their dreams, a candle is lit for them and a toast with juice, water, or wine is given.

Important Note: Pay particular attention to what you drink and toast to around Halloween, for with each glass you raise in a toast, the energy will be heightened. This is a time when the energy fields and the Veil between the earthly plane and the spirit worlds are wide open. This creates a rare opportunity to manifest your desires by imbuing into the liquid what you are thinking and saying as you make each toast. You truly can activate your libations with your energy, turning them into powerful potions, which you then drink and absorb into your auric fields.

Next, hand out packages of seeds along with little clay pots filled with soil and invite your guests to plant new seeds of thought this fall to manifest in the spring. Have each person write one word that describes the goal they wish to manifest on the outside of their clay pot. A permanent marker works best for this purpose.

On January 1, celebrate the conventional New Year with a toast to your dreams. They have been actively manifesting for several months now in your mental auric field and will soon be ready for action in the outer world this coming spring.
