Last night the UK was hit with some powerful storms and there are lots being shown recorded on Facebook. We didn't have any here in my part of Wales and I feel a little left out.
As a child I loved being outside and being outside meant being free and I had this knack of being able to smell rain that was on it's way or a storm that was brewing. I would have a song I would chant and it would get louder and louder until a clap of thunder or fork of lightening appeared. "Thunder thunder come to play, lightening lightening strike today" still brings back childhood memories and even when there was no chance of a storm it seemed that when I would chant these words one would not be too far away.
You can feel the power and magick within a storm, the energy builds up and up and being in the middle of it you have this surge of emotions, you feel a little scared but oh so powerful, like you could you fly through the sky and alongside that storm. The excitement of counting in between loud bangs and the anticipation of that flash across the sky, there is nothing quite like it to get the blood pumping through your veins.
Maybe light a few candles and harness some of that power that Mother Earth is releasing, sit in front of your candles and ask that Mother Earth shower your soul in the magick, strength, determination, power of the storm that has arisen and once you feel it's breathe upon you blow out those candles, you'll also feel uplifted and energized.
