Life’s Puzzles

crow puzzleThere will be moments in your life when things will come together…  just like a puzzle you have been working on for a very long time. You’ll sit back … push away from the puzzle and admire all the work that went into bringing all those pieces together. Then you’ll notice the image the pieces created once they found their place…. and you’ll smile with a feeling on fulfillment.

Enjoy those moments.

Give yourself credit for sticking with it and seeing it through.

Smile because you have completed a life phase and are ready to embark on a new one.

It will be work, but it will also be fun… you may want to give up, but don’t … the reward at the end is worth seeing it through.

Many Blessings,

The Magical Dogwood

Magical Properties of Dogwood: Wishes, secrets, loyalty and protection. The fire of passion, desire and will. Associated with fertility and sexual attraction, happiness and comfort.

Dogwood is sacred to the Elves at Beltane, this tree bears the magic of flowering, evocation of one’s ancestors, renewal of cycles of fertility, consecration of ritual or hearth fires, giving of comfort or healing and spells of banishment and protection.

Dogwood is useful in any meeting when those attending need to maintain confidence regarding the topics of discussion, and to help keep open minds. Dogwood may be used to keep ones writings private. It is a superior herb to guard ones diaries, or journals. Oil of Dogwood flowers is without peer in sealing letters and keeping the contents only for intended eyes. Use the powdered flowers or bark as incense for your sacred space.

Place the sap of the dogwood onto a handkerchief on Midsummer Eve. This will grant any wish you have as long as you carry it faithfully. Dogwood leaves or wood can be placed in protective amulets.

Many Blessings,
