How to make powerful wishing star water

Lifestyle, How to...

The use of Water in wishing ceremonies has been known to bestow potent gifts.

You programme the water with your wish and then drink the water down. But did you know there is another way to create powerful wishing water? You create wishing water by capturing the energy of shooting stars instead.

Can you wish upon a star….?

Using water that has been charged with the energy of shooting stars you can create alternative ways to make your water based wishes.

But where do you find enough shooting stars to get started? Look no further than the annual ETA Aquariid Meteor shower that arrives early May each year.

Meteor showers are made up of the particles left from a comet’s trail. As the Earth passes through the dust and debris that was separated from the comet over hundreds of years ago we see vibrant streaks of brightly lit particles moving through our atmosphere at great speed. They look like streamers of light swooshing fleetingly across the dark night sky…we lovingly call these flashes of light shooting stars.

The annual ETA Aquariid Meteor shower brings an abundance of ‘wishing stars’ and I like to capture the essence of the wishing energy they bring. I capture their energy in water and then create heavenly wishing star water. All you need is a few simple ingredients and a clear night or two…and you leave the rest to the meteor shower.

ETA Aquariid Meteor Shower

The meteor shower actually begins each year from mid April and stays consistently good for gazers young and old right to the end of May but it peaks around now. Not one to miss an opportunity to grab a bit of the right kind of energy I felt I should take the opportunity join to capture some of that special shooting star energy that seems to be coming straight at us from the rim of the Aquarius constellation’s water jar. With over 20 meteors shooting across the night sky every hour here in the Northern Hemisphere it’s so easy to capture the energy of these shooting stars as long as you can get a clear night when they are around. So this is rare celestial energy and I want to capture it!

What is wishing star water used for?

ETA Aquariid Infused Gem Water, water charged by the shooting stars, what I call heavenly wishing star water, can be used for a whole variety of purposes. Although you can’t drink this water or put directly on your skin you can do many other things with it:

  • spritz it in the air to cleanse and create a sacred space
  • pour it into an obsidian bowl and divine with it
  • spray it over objects and bless the objects with it
  • spray the air in-front of you and step into the mist while making your wish
    use it as the water element in your sacred altar
  • give it away as a gift!

Make sure when you make this wishing star water that you make enough for your own needs and also that you have plenty left over to share, you’ll find you’ll be giving it away because as soon as your friends find out about it they’ll want some too, believe me!

Time to make

It takes between 1 and 4 days to create this wishing star water depending on how strong you would like the wishing star water infusion to be.

You also need to place this water in a location outdoors where it will be fully exposed to clear night sky for as much of the night as possible.

75ml of distilled water or fresh spring water.

An 8oz clear glass bottle (or a clean Jam jar) with tight fitting lid.

25ml Vodka (High proof) or Witch-Hazel

100ml Blue glass Bottle.

I always make this Aquariid Infused Gem Water in quite large quantities but you can start with smaller amounts to get the hang of it. I’ve given smaller quantities here, to make larger amounts double or triple the recipe.

What you do

  • Put the water into your glass bottle. Seal the lid.
  • Place your container of water outside at night (bring it in during the day and store it in a dark cupboard)
  • After 3 nights outside your water is charged with the energy of the meteor shower.
  • Add the vodka or Witch-Hazel
  • Reseal the container and give it a good shake to mix things through. 
  • Pour mix carefully into a dark blue glass bottle.
  • Optional: Add a Herkimer diamond crystal or perhaps some drops of your favourite essential oil blend

Finish off

I like to label everything I make. I often name my special blends and this one is called ‘Aquariid Meteor shower and Herkimer Diamond Elixir. Heavenly wishing star water. ” I put the entire recipe onto the label too so I have an instant record of what I have made and I also add the date I made it.  Fabulous!

Enhancements/Extras

If you’d like to enhance this wishing water further why not add a few special supercharging extras? Try adding a small ‘crystal clear’ Herkimer diamond to it. Herkimer diamonds are amazingly powerful crystals and even a little crystal really does go a long way!

Only add a crystal that has been cleared and programmed BEFORE you add it to your wishing elixir.

What you need

A crystal clear Herkimer diamond crystal (roughly 5mm long) that has been cleansed, cleared and programmed

Clearing your crystal

Leave the little crystal out on a windowsill to bathe in the moonlight during the same nights you are charging your water. This cleans and clears the crystal. Moonlight is marvellous for clearing crystals.

Programme the crystal

Just before adding it to the wishing water, take the clear crystal, hold it to your forehead and programme it, set an intention for the crystal…I’d say something like ‘Dearest crystal, bring your special properties to this magical wishing water, let this elixir work for the benefit of all that come into contact with it’. Then, straight away, I drop the crystal into the wishing water. Now you have the shooting star water and a gem elixir too, two potent intentions combined to make something very special indeed.

Adding an aroma to the wishing star water

If you’d like to enhance this wishing star water with an aroma add up to 20 drops of your favourite essential oil blend. I wouldn’t use synthetic perfumes no matter how good they might smell.
