Psychic Power Spells
Cairns or piles of stones are collectors and reservoirs of power. Creating a Cairn of Power in a specific power spot, such as a crossroads, graveyard, or hilltop can give added depth to magick performed with, on, or near them. Here’s how:
Select 10 or 20 stones of approximately the same size. Larger is better – just be sure that you can safely handle them. When collecting the stones, always ask permission, and take the stone only if permission is granted. Be respectful of the place, and be sure to leave appropriate offerings, and blessings.
Before building the Cairn, get grounded and centered. If you are working with others, avoid small talk and distractions. Silence is best.
Allow the stones to speak to you, and guide you in the building of the Cairn. As you place the first stone, say aloud and with conviction:
“I place here a stone of power.”
Repeat this with the rest of your stones, gradually forming a sturdy pile of stones. The pile can have a square or triangular base, and the shape it forms will be dictated by the rocks you chose. Take your time, listen to the land, the wind, the voices in the trees. You are building a Cairn of Power – take it seriously. If you are quiet enough, and serious enough, a name will come to you.
As you place the last stone on top of the pile, say:
“This is a Cairn of Power”
Listen and wait for the naming of the Cairn.
When the name comes to you say:
“This is ____________.” (name the Cairn)
Pour a libation of water or wine, and light a small candle to activate the energies. If you have magick to perform, do it now. When you are complete, leave an offering of cornmeal, salt, flowers, herbs or whatever feels appropriate.
Each time you return, you can bring another stone, crystals, amulets, shells, statues, or other items to add to the Cairn. Over time, and as you continue to revisit the Cairn, your connection to the power will build, and eventually you will have only to think of it to receive a surge of energy.

“Void of blackness, darkest night,
Ruled by Crone of power and might.
Push my instincts into life
So intuition grows and thrives.
Crone of Darkness, come to me
And let me know all things unseen.”

At the Full or Waxing moon phase just before midnight stand at a window where you can see the moon. If possible, open the window or go outside and allow the light of the moon to touch your body. Envision the moonlight, the power of the Moon entering your body….
Now, take a purple candle and anoint it with real vanilla extract or essential oil. Imagine the power of the moon and flowing through you and to the candle while you anoint it.
Place the candle on the ground or windowsill and light it. Say:
Goddess of the Moon, love and light,
I ask you to send me your magickal powers
this moon lit night,
by the power of the myriad starlight above me,
and your moonlit heavens,
so shall it be!”
Stretch your arms out as if you are ready to embrace the moon. Visualize your outstretched arms as soaking up the moonlight and the moonbeams being absorbed into the pores of your skin. You will feel the Goddess giving you her awesome power.
Snuff your candle and leave it overnight where it is (or if that’s not possible, leave it on your altar).
The next day, either at the sunrise, or just before mid-day. Place the candle in the same place and stand arms outstretched towards the Sun soaking up the energy of its heat and sunbeams, Say:
“Great Ra, Lord of the sky and solar power,
lend your fiery magick to me.
Let this witches power be reawakened and be empowered
by the forces of the cool Moon and burning Sun.
By soil, wind, flame and sea,
Grant my desire.
So mote it be!”
Now your Magickal powers and your desire to use them will have been reawakened. Take your snuffed out candle to your altar and relight it there to burn out as a mark of respect to the God and Goddess.
If one goes on Christmas night in the morning twilight into a wood or forest without uttering a word or letting a sound be heard, without looking around, without eating or drinking, without seeing any fire, and follow a path leading to a church, when the sun is rising, he will see as many funerals as will pass that way during the year. He can also see how the produce will be in the meadows and pastures, and whether any fires will break out, or epidemics occur; in fact, for the time, he will be clairvoyant.
