Michael the Archangel’s flaming sword illuminates dreams and provides safety as you linger in dreamland. This dream oracle affirms whether a spiritual petition or request is appropriate or not. This spell is based on surviving remnants of Alexandria’s Magical Papyri. The request for the dream is made using a magic lamp.
This spell doesn’t assume that you have a special ritual lamp. Oil lamps were once common household articles, like a table lamp is today: it wan’t a big deal back then for a spell to suggest using one, any more than a modern spell’s request for a spoonful of salt is an inconvenience. An everyday oil lamp may be used, or you can dedicate and charge a special lamp just for spell casting.
- Set aside some time – as this spell will take a while to complete
- Cleanse and purify yourself thoroughly using whatever methods you prefer.
Light the lamp
- Speak to the lamplight, (using the incantation below) observing it, reacting to it until it burns out.
- Repeat the following incantation periodically throughout the vigil. It must also be recited at the very conclusion:
Lamp, light the way to Archangel Michael,
If my petition is appropriate,
show me water and a grave
If not, show me water and a stone.
Be silent, go to sleep, and dream.
NOTE: The symbols of “water and grave” and “water and stone” were used at the dawning of the Common Era. Use them if you like or select others that suit you better; just announce explicitly the identities of the symbols.

This spell won’t make you get excellent grades from failing grades overnight. However it does make it easier for you to learn things and understand them more quickly. I did this spell for a friend of mine and it ended up working for both of us! It is best done during a waxing moon.
You will need:
- Gold candle

Line up the candles with the gold in the middle. Mix the mint, mace and oil together an anoint the candles with the mixture, and then light them.
I invoke thee Zagzagel to aid me in my ___ and understanding.
Please bring out my full potential in all I do.
An harm ye none so mote it be.
This isn’t exactly a spell, but it’s a really easy way to connect with your own inner voice, and it might give you some ideas for spell work in the future. For example, you could cast a spell for harmony between your “Inner Mother” and your “Rebellious Child.” I’m sure that as you read through the list, and think about who speaks to you from within, more ideas will come to you.
Here’s the basic concept:
Since we each have so many inner voices, every day there are all kinds of “committee meetings” going on inside our heads. The one speaking right now is the one who is curious, who loves to learn.
You don’t need to call your inner voices a “Committee” if you don’t want to. Feel free to name them something different if you’d like. Here are some ideas:
- The Inner Family
- Inner Parts
- Inner Tribe
Identifying your inner voices:
As you read the list below, take a separate piece of paper (or your journal) and make your own list. You will find that you will identify with some of the inner voices listed here, and some you will pass right over. That’s perfectly okay. You are the only one who truly can identify your own inner voices. You might find that some of them sound exactly like people you grew up with.
- The Critic
- The Peacemaker
- The Organizer
- The Caretaker
- The Happy Child
- The Poet
- The Fighter
- The Gypsy
- The Hermit
- The Grump
- The Guru
- The Yogini
- Miss Responsible
- The One Who Loves to Cook
- The One Who Was Shamed
- The Healer
- The Good Mother
- The Nature Lover
- The Professional/Business Woman
- The One Who Waits
- The Inner Cheerleader
Take a look at the list you made of your own inner Committee. Some of the voices on your list are clearly positive. Some are more neutral. And some may seem negative and bothersome. This is all okay! They are each needing to be heard.
A few of them may seem to be dominant, the ones who are continually “running the show.” Others may be living on the fringes, unable to speak, silenced and hidden in the shadows. Remember that each part of you wants to be seen, heard, named and honored.
I have found that simply noticing a voice (especially a shadowy voice that doesn’t seem to like me) diminishes its power over me.
What to do about it:
An excellent way to connect with and bring harmony to your inner tribe is to make a picture to represent each one. This can be done in the form of small collages, one for each voice – or you could do some scrap booking, giving each voice it’s own separate page. This is a great project for self exploration – and is easily done by going through magazines and pulling out images and words that speak to you about the individual selves. You may find that you begin to identify many more inner voices as you continue the practice of inner listening, and as you continue to go through magazines finding images that call to you..
Found at: KaleidoSoul a website that facilitates the making of “soul collages” bringing your inner voices out in the form of collaged cards.
