Strength to Overcome Obstacles

Color of the day:  Indigo
Incense of the day:  Sandalwood

Gladiolus is the flower for the month of August. Gladiolus flowers represent strength and the ability to overcome obstacles. They bloom in a variety of colors, like red, pink, white, yellow, and orange.

Anything that symbolizes strength can help you become more empowered. Empowerment is a key element in gaining confidence to overcome challenges on our spiritual path. Use the magick of the gladiolus to move forward after the lesson of the challenge or difficulty has been learned. While holding the flower, chant these words:

May the beauty and strength of
this gladiolus flower assist me
with its natural power, guide my
path, and allow me to see how
the obstacles can be overcome.

Say the words as many times as needed until you feel your inner strength rise and you have the confidence to move past the difficulty in your life.
