Mother Earth's Healing Charm
Since autumn is when many of the energies of the plants withdraw back into the earth, as She prepares for the rest that winter brings, I like to concentrate more on using stones and roots in magic rather than leaves and flowers.
This charm is a very simple healing charm designed to lend healing energy to you through harvest time. To make this charm, all you need is to find a smooth white stone outside somewhere, then wash it in cold water and light a light-blue candle. Go into a meditation holding the stone, and visualize light-blue energy streaming down into your third eye and through you, into the stone. When you feel the stone is fully energized, chant:
"Forged in the earth, smooth white stone,
Filled with power to heal and mend.
Ancient magic to flesh and bone,
Healing force you now lend."
Carry the stone with you.
