Holiday Card Blessing Ritual
A great time to do this would be one week from today - this coming Thursday (the day of expansion), when the moon is waxing close to full and in Taurus (the sign of earthly blessings and steady, longstanding progress). But really any time between now and the full moon would work wonderfully.
Before you write your cards, hold a red candle in both hands and direct positive energy into it, perhaps by visualizing golden light and/or feeling and expansive, loving feeling in your heart. Then light the candle. Write each card consciously and lovingly, and as you seal it, feel that you are sealing in your positive wishes for your loved one.
When you have a stack of sealed envelopes, sit comfortably with your spine straight. Hold the stack between your two palms, so that your hands are in prayer pose at your heart. Close your eyes, relax, and send beautiful, positive energy and well-wishes into the cards, perhaps in the form of golden light. See this energy/light expanding to fill and encompass your entire body and aura. Say or think something like,
"What I focus on expands.
What I send out comes back to me multiplied.
I focus on love and light.
I send out blessings and abundance.
I open my heart to give and receive all good things.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Blessed be. And so it is."
Walk to the mailbox and drop them in.
