Sometimes we want to work magic not just for ourselves, but for everyone else too.
A blue prayer candle (i.e. a tall jar candle)
A lighter or matches
As the sun is setting, face west. Center yourself and take some deep breaths.
Light the candle and say:
Archangel Gabriel, please help!
Help us dream a new dream.
Help us dream a dream of peace.
Help us dream a dream of love.
Help us dream a dream of understanding.
May we rise above fear.
May we respect and treasure every member of our human family.
May we see every person – of every country, gender, and ethnicity – as a beloved brother, sister, mother, father, or child.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Blessed be. And so it is.
Keep the candle safely burning throughout the evening. It’s fine to move it from room to room with you so you can keep an eye on it. If possible, keep it burning in your bedroom as you sleep (this will obviously not be possible if it is within reach of children or furry friends).
Pay special attention to your dreams: speak them into an audio recorder or jot them down upon awakening, and revisit them later in the day to search for any symbolic or literal messages they contain. They may alert you to actions you can take to create positive change in the world.
