Head to your local beach and worship the power of nature with our surrendering ritual
Have you ever realised that it’s only at the beach where all the elements come together; water upon the shore, the sand grounding and solid beneath your bare feet, the hot solar power of the sun above you and the salty, lip-tingling smell in the air? Find a patch of shore at your local beach and try this simple spell.
NOW TRY SOMETHING NEW
1 Find a beautiful shell and sit down near where the water laps, cross-legged, still and silent.
2 Rest your left hand (with the shell on your palm) on your left knee. Think about what other thoughts or memories you want to let go of and surrender to the sea.
3 Throw the shell into the ocean as far as it will go, affirming out loud: “Within this stone I hold my fears Embrace the light and shed no tears. I surrender thee unto the sea, My woes be gone, And so mote it be.”
