The Jewish celebration of Tu B’Av, the holiday of love, happens next Monday on July 22. It is a cosmic window in time where the potential of two souls to reunite is greater than any other day of the year. Tu B’Av is the one day in the kabbalistic calendar where there is a complete unification between the spiritual and physical worlds, offering balanced cosmic support perfect for awakening love, discovering soulmates, strengthening relationships and making new beginnings of all kinds.
To take advantage of this auspicious and magical time I would suggest the following ritual:
Go to the most romantic place in nature you can get to – a place that you want to someday take your soulmate.
Plan to be there either at 12:00noon, at sunrise or at sunset.
Bring a pink or red blanket or pillow to sit on.
Also bring a favorite celebratory beverage and a champagne flute.
And bring, a journal, a container of sea salt and a bell (if you have one).
Find a comfortable place to sit and before you sit, place your blanket or pillow on the ground and then make a wide circle around it with sea salt, then sit down.
Write in your journal what you are most grateful for about the life you now lead, and what you are grateful for that is soon to come with the arrival of your soulmate. Then close your eyes and say a prayer of gratitude and meditate for awhile.
When you are done, open your eyes, pour your drink and raise a toast to your soulmate and tell him or her (in your mind) that the cosmic welcome mat is now out and you look forward to meeting them on the physical plane in the near future.
Then, if you have brought your bell, ring in many times.
If you can, take a photo of yourself in this space to add to your altar.
Finally, if you can attend any gatherings or parties where you are likely to meet someone new, on either July 21 or July 22, be sure to go!
Wishing you love, laughter, and magical kisses!
