The purpose of this spell is to bring harmony, and what better time than Imbolc! As we bring in the Light, let’s bring in harmony! This works for harmony with the Self (check in: are you disappointed or even mad at yourself for some reason? Is this blocking you from your goals?), a relationship with Another (school friend, co-worker, lover, spouse, friend, sibling), or a Group (families, co-workers, a class you’re attending or teaching, spiritual gatherings, covens, etc.).
You may do this by yourself, or with your partner or in a group or coven. It is especially effective to share if you’re working on harmony in relationships with others, but not necessary.
You will need an apple (or other fruit if you prefer) and a glass of water (you may share the glass, or have a glass available for each person if you prefer).
Next, cut up the hurts! Cut the fruit into several slices. As you cut, visualize the incidents that have taken you apart over time. If you are disharmonious with your Self, visualize why as you cut the apple. Have you not completed an important project? Have you been unkind to yourself? If the lack of harmony is with Another, visualize the challenges that your relationship has had and the changes that have occurred as you cut. Really feel the hurt, anger, frustration. If the lack of harmony is in a Group, see where the lack of harmony began, and cut the apple.
If you’re with the person or group you wish to create harmony with, while you are cutting, talk openly and gently about the challenges. You can even talk about the challenges if you’re by yourself. Allow the emotions to flow. Maybe even the tears. Know that the cutting of the apple is symbolic of the separation of harmony from your life, the cutting apart of you as a whole person or the cutting apart of you with a partner or group. If you’re doing this with others, make a pact before the spell work begins that no matter what is said, it is safe to feel because everyone involved knows that the goal is to heal and bring you back to your natural state: Harmony.
When all is said and felt, close your eyes and visualize the apple as it began, a blossom on a tree. Compare that to the very beginnings of your relationship with Self, Another, or Group. Pink, light, blowing in the breeze. Visualize the apple growing and compare that to the friendship and trust. Visualize the entire summer season, drinking in the sun, and moving into fall. Compare that to the growing and maturing Harmony of the relationships. Fill yourself with the love that was the original foundation and blossom of your relationship. Recall and Feel the very, very best of your relationship to your Self or Group. This should feel truly amazing.
Now, hold your hands over the cut apple, close your eyes, and see the apple as beautiful, whole, delicious, nutritious, fulfilling its destiny, growing in the sun, and compare that to how you want the relationship to be again. Keep the vision in your mind’s eye until you can feel how beautiful the apple is, and how beautiful your relationship is. Remember the very best of your relationship. Recall the best of the spiritual Self, Another, or Group.
Open your eyes, and see the love and harmony of your relationship in the apple. You may say words of your own or similar to, “As I eat this apple and it becomes whole within me, I here and now make a pact with the Goddess and the God to make my relationship whole.” Eat the apple in silence, and know that you are creating the basis of making your relationship with Self, Another, or Group, whole, beautiful, and harmonious. Savor the beauty of your relationship as you eat the apple. If you are spell crafting with those you’re doing magick to be harmonious, the apple is shared among you.
Hold the water, bless it with words you choose, or something like, “Mother, Father, Goddess, God, just as water has given vibrant life to everything that exists on the earth, let this water bring vibrant life and harmony to (myself, or name the partner or group).” Drink the water or share it (you may each have your own glass if you prefer), and know that the harmony you’ve ingested will grow with the sacred water of life.
