Spell A Day

A Spell of Gratitude

Spell Date:  Saturday, December 26, 2009
Color of the day:  Blue
Incense of the day:  Pine
Gratitude is one of the most profound emotions we can feel. To be grateful is to feel content and to acknowledge the things in your life that you truly and fully appreciate. So often, we go through life forgetting to say “thanks” to life itself. We often focus on the negative and forget to count our blessings. Gratitude is essential on any spiritual path—including the path of life itself! Today is the day after Christmas (which is, for Witches, a holiday about family, friends, and love, rather than a celebration of Christian mythology), and is shortly after Yule, the Winter Solstice, which celebrates the rebirth of the Sun rather than the “birth of the son” (same mythos, different skin). Because this time of year represents rebirth, renewal, gift-giving, and love, it’s a perfect day to give thanks to the universe. Take a walk in nature by yourself, smelling the natural smells, feeling the Earth and the trees, and seriously paying attention to the profundity of the natural world. Give an offering of food or incense, and say your own prayer of gratitude to the spirits and the gods.
