hey there lovelies and a very happy wednesday, wherever in the world you may be.
today i wanted to continue with my series of 5 free intentional lessons, based on bringing more mindfulness into our day to day lives.
i am offering them for free as part of the celebration of the launch of my newest ecourse "living more intentionally". in the full course i share my monthly intentional practices over the whole year and some gorgeous candle ritual magic too.
today i wanted to share with you the key ingredients to a successful wednesday.
wednesday is ruled by mercury. it's energy is of the most benefit to writers, poets, actors, teachers and students. the reason for this is that its influences vibrate towards inspiration, communications, the written and spoken word and all forms of study, learning and teaching. it is also a good day to begin efforts that deal with self-improvement or understanding.
wednesday is a day for communication and memory skills.
another good day for getting things done, but perhaps in a more learned and scholarly way than tuesdays burst of energy would allow. it's a great day for teaching classes or writing down new ideas - any activity that stretches your intellect and your mind.
here are the herbs, stones and colours that will best support your wednesday:
light blue, gray, green, orange, yellow.
cinnamon, mint, dill, sage, goldenrod.
sodalite, moss agate, opal, aventurine.
again, i would prepare my altar with the above stones and herbs surrounding a green candle. i love the colours and the speckled qualities of the agate stones for this altar - they are so unusual and so lovely.
i also would use the corresponding colours for my clothing and jewellery. i tend to stray towards mainly green and light blue for wednesdays as it seems to me to fit better into the colour scheme. the yellow and orange are an option, but for me the greens speak more clearly.
i would set up this altar early in the day, and use this intentional time to focus my mind on my goals and desired outcomes of the day.
it's great to quieten your mind for a while and to focus on setting up your altar (a task that many would say is a waste of valuable time) when you know for yourself that it isn't. it grounds you, supports you and makes you feel at one with things as you head off into your day, and that is very important.
i hope you've enjoyed this lesson, and that you will try to use it's ancient wisdom to enhance your own life.
i'd love to know how you get on if you do try any of these techniques.

have a fantastic day lovelies!
