Because today in Devon it is so November I decided to make a small altar to keep my self company and grounded so that I could focus and be productive. Its not elaborate, just some chestnuts and beech leaves that I picked up when walking; a couple of springs of Michaelmas daisies from the garden and a beautiful Crystal Cave candle made by Touchfire Candles in Totnes. The candle is scented with many essential oils including moon incense and frankincense for calming the soul and wisdom; both of which I need! Shame that I cannot bottle up its fragrance and send it to you.
I am writing about this because as a strategy for concentration I found that it worked. So I thought that you may find it useful. The steady flame of the candle; the flower’s with their child like simplicity and swirling sun like Van Gough complexity; the auburn chestnuts & beech leaves combined to centre me; So no temptation to look through Facebook or eBay or Twitter as a distraction; just the nourishment of a quickly assembled altar to comfort me and enhance my writing.
An Angel Reading for today:
“Dear Ones; As the season dissolves around you, draw inspiration and courage from your own backbone; It is there to give you strength”.
Wishing you a wondrous rest of day.
