The Mountains Are Calling...

When the mountains call, we must answer. There's something otherworldly about the mountains. Something that draws us in, beckoning us closer and closer. Is it that the mountains reach high into the heavens? Or maybe their immovable strength and gigantic size? For thousands of years, people have wondered at the magnificence of the mountains. Mountains feature in numerous myths and lore, often being a place where people have spiritual awakenings and meet with the Divine. Think about it. When Jesus needed a place to pray and meditate, he went to Mount Olive. When Usui was gifted with the Universal energy of Reiki he was on Mount Kurama. To the ancient Celts and Germanic tribes, the mountains were a holy place of the gods. Often rituals were performed on mountain sides and mountain tops. Fast forward to late Medieval Times and superstitions about mountains abound: witches met on mountains, the dead were present on the mountains, and much more. Mountains are the life-giving, nourishing bosom of Mother Earth and should be treated as such. You can use the magic of the mountains to cleanse, heal, and manifest.

Simple Mountain Magic: Hiking, Meditation, and the Air Element

If you are fortunate to live near the mountains or on a mountain, be thankful. You have a plethora of magical properties at your footsteps. The first thing you must do is to go to the mountains. Go for a hike in the mountains. Make sure to bring a survival backpack with necessities and keep to the trails laid out for you. Bring a friend or two to stay extra safe. In areas with bears, don't forget the bear spray. While we don't want to hurt our furry friends, we also want to keep ourselves safe.

During your hike, be sure to take in your surroundings. Stop and breathe in the fresh mountain air. Eat lunch at a beautiful spot overlooking the scenery. Take pictures of the view. If you're lucky enough to come across a body of water of some kind, dip your toes in (if it's not too cold!) Appreciate the elements on your mountain journey - fire is the sun's warmth on your face. Air is all around you. Earth is beneath your feet. Water runs down the mountain. Take some time to meditate on the mountain-side. It doesn't have to be anything elaborate. Just sit with your eyes closed and listen to the mountain. Sometimes the mountains will speak to you, if you're willing to listen. Mountains can help to ground us, but also lift us into the heavens to connect with the Divine.

All four elements can be found in the mountains, but probably the most prominent is the Air Element. The air element is linked to communication, luck, freedom, study, travel, knowledge, and recovering things that have been lost. If you are feeling too grounded and are looking to re-connect with the Divine and your Higher Self, working with the Air Element is essential and can easily be done on top of a mountain. If you are looking to manifest something in any of the Air Element arenas, doing so in the mountains will help bring your intentions into reality. If you have lung or respiratory problems, the Air Element can help you heal.

Mountain Foraging

If you are lucky enough to live close to the mountains, you have the ability to forage for magical mountain items. What is foraging? It is the action of gathering or collecting things from nature for food, medicine, or magic. Be aware that while many plants are edible and medicinal in nature, there are also those that can be irritating, toxic, or deadly. It should go without saying that whatever you forage on the mountain, you should have a keen awareness of the identification of that plant. If you don't know the plant, use gloves when handling and don't make use of it in food, medicine, or topically without consulting a local herbalist first.

That being said, foraging is not only fun it is educational. By gathering pieces and bits from the mountain, you are adding powerful magical ingredients to your inventory. For example, pine needles can be gathered from the forest floor, wrapped into bundles, and burned in smudging rituals to purify one's space. Pinecones, acorns, and other tree cones can be gathered and placed around the home to bring success and abundance into your home. They can also be used as decorations on your altar for the Autumn and Winter months. Take a few small rocks or pebbles and carry them in your pockets when you need a boost of power or strength in a tough situation.

Wildflowers can be picked and arranged in a bouquet on your kitchen table, altar, or bedroom dresser. Or you can dry them, press them in an album or spiritual journal, or even frame them and hang them on the wall for added earth energy. Foragers and wildcrafters use wildflowers to make cheery spring and summer wreaths to hang on their front doors. This invites positive, uplifting earth energy into your home.

Herbs can be dried and used to dress candles for abundance, success, new opportunities, grounding, friendship, matters of the family and home. They can also be tied up in mojo bags or sewed into poppets for healing and self-love. You have simply to take a trip to the mountains and have an entire, huge magical cabinet right at your fingertips! While it might take more work to forage for ingredients in the mountains than buying them from a grocery store, you are connecting with the earth in a way that your ancestors did. You are sharing your energy with the earth itself. You will be much more connected to the gifts you've foraged and therefore those ingredients will be more powerful in whatever intention you set out to manifest.

Not only will you find plants and trees in the mountains, you might also find moss, rocks, feathers, bones, mushrooms, and more! Most importantly, you will find inspiration and enlightenment. Bring a bag or basket with you for collecting, and make sure to never take more than you need.

Spirits of the Mountain

Mountains have long been known to be a place where spirits abound. Think of the myths and folklore about creatures that live in the mountains - dwarves, dragons, nymphs, goblins, fairies, ghosts, and Bigfoot. It should go without saying that the mountains harbor some rather magical and mysterious beings, mostly because the mountains are more difficult for people to inhabit. Only the strongest of individuals make a life and home for themselves in the mountains. Witches also have strong ties to the mountains, as it was thought they would fly to the top to hold their meetings.

If you are in need of something in your life, don't forget you can invoke the spirits of the mountain to aid in manifestation. Do this by trekking the mountains lightly, leaving your footprints and a prayer. Commune with the mountain spirits simply by being present and paying attention to the subtle signs they give you along the way. They might speak to you through a random bird feather found along the path. Maybe the spirits of the mountain will send you a specific animal with a message. Or you could even dream about the mountain spirits as you sleep. Be open to what the mountain has to say. Native Americans believed the mountains once talked, but now no one listens. Be the one who is ready to listen and learn. And manifest like a mountain.

      Enjoyed your write up about the Mountains, Nicole, especially revealing its spiritual essence.

      Like how you described mountain energy as being a Divine untouchable energy, so you feel immersed in that sacred energy.

      I remember when we climbed Mt Sinai on the Easter weekend. Many were praying and asking for healing. The sunrise the following morning was magnificent. There was a part of me that felt reborn even though I am agnostic.
