The first month of the year is a good time to reconnect with your inner power. Collect the essence of a cedar or evergreen tree to connect with the strong purification and grounding energies. (You can substitute materials from any tree that you connect with on a deep level.) Add some pieces of cedar wood, sprigs from the tree branch, and/or a few pine cones to your altar space. If you gather these items from a tree in nature, ask for permission from the tree. Be sure to leave a small offering (such as a flower petal, seed, or natural stone—something that is derived from nature) at the base of the tree in gratitude. Place the items on your altar and chant these words:
I ask for the wisdom and strength
Repeat these words and use this spell as many times as necessary until you feel connected to the strength and magick of your inner power.
