I really love this idea and I wanted to share it with you all.
If you don’t have a coven, get some friends together, because this is really healing and beautiful and I promise, you’ll never forget it. Or, perform the ritual as a solitary.
Note: Live butterflies can be found here:
*picture of your loved one
*cardboard or wooden box
*as many blue candles as you can gather
*cauldron or fire-safe bowl
*cinnamon (for healing and strengthened spirituality)
*lavender (for peace)
Timing: Saturday, about an hour before sunset during the waning moon.
Do this after an appropriate period of mourning.
Two days after the funeral is not a good idea. People just aren’t ready.
Wait at least a month, or even on the first anniversary of their death, if they died during the warmer months.
