Kwan Yin is the Goddess of Mercy.
Here is a simple ritual to invoke her blessings:
- Set up your altar with a picture of Kwan Yin and either a stick or a cone of lotus incense.
- Bow 3 times to Kwan Yin
- Offer one or more glasses of water which Kwan Yin will bless.
Invite Kwan Yin to come to you and appear. Bring the palms of your hands together as if in prayer. Recite the following:
May the Peace of Kwan Yin be upon this household!
May the Light of Kwan Yin be in my soul!
May the Wisdom of Kwan Yin be in my mind!
May the Virtue and Purity of Kwan Yin be in my feelings!
May the Strength and Vitality of Kwan Yin be among the members of my household!
May the Health and Well-Being of Kwan Yin be manifest through out my body, and radiate through the garments I wear!
May the Grace of Kwan Yin be in my worship!
May the Talents and Genius of Kwan Yin be manifest through my senses!
May the Peace of Kwan Yin be upon me”
Recite the following short mantra 10 times:
Na Mo Kwan Yin Boddhisattva.
Finally, drink the water blessed by Kwan Yin. This water now has healing powers.
Dedicate this practice of the Kwan Yin Great compassion Mantra to the benefit and enlightenment of all beings.
Close your shrine in whatever way feels appropriate.

Magic can be created from the humblest articles. This spell derives from a time when sewing, mending, and needlework were constant, everyday practices. Here’s how it works:
Keep a little jar beside you as you sew. Every time you finish a thread, toss the bit into the jar, saying something to the effect of
“Bless this house.
Protect all within from harm and hardship.”
When the jar is full, seal the blessings within by laying one protective leaf or root on top. (For example: bay laurel leaf, angelica root, bethroot, or wormwood)
Close the jar tightly and store it near the top of the house, in the attic, or hang it from the rafters.

An inscription to be written on a windowpane:
Where it is born,
But Sun flies
To light this room.
St. John’s Wort, a golden flower that smells like turpentine, is regarded as an emblem of the sun.
Light an orange candle and place a bunch of St. John’s Wort beside it. Make a wish, then hang the bundle of flowers over an entrance door to your home. Leave the candle to extinguish itself. It will bring you your wish and ward off evil too.
An image of the flowers can be used as an alternative for the herb when it isn’t possible to find, or is out of season.
This is something nice to do as a substitute for the New Years Resolutions we make and break every year.
Make a list of the real wants and needs that you have within you. Maybe you need to give yourself more time, or speak out about the desire for recognition of the person you really are… Only you know what you really want and need. Write it down.
Now, consider the whole nature of gift giving and the appropriateness of the things you yourself have given and received this year. Then, make a present to yourself of one of the things you just listed.
If it requires a phone call, make that call. If it means something must be purchased and you can’t afford it, start by putting pennies in a jar. Do you need to rearrange your schedule? Enroll in a class? Whatever it is… get started right now, today.
Need some help taking that first small step.? Here’s a small blessing spell from me to you:
Take, and welcome joy within you:
Showers, flowers, powers,
Hatfulls, capfulls, lapfulls,
Treasures, measures, pleasures,
All be yours to enjoy.
Verse from The Celtic Devotional
Upon awakening, turn your face to the rising Sun and breathe deeply, allowing a feeling of balance and happiness to fill you to overflowing. Repeat this exercise periodically throughout the day. Find something to be happy about all day. This may be a love or a success or it may be as simple as the Sun glinting on water or the feel of a gentle rain.
As night falls, cut openings large enough to hold taper candles in the top of two shiny autumn apples. Place two pink, or one gold and one silver, candles in the apple holders. As you light them, remember all the joys of the day and of your life. Rejoice in the joy you have brought to others and give thanks for these gifts.

This is a very simple magickal procedure that allows you to find a place in nature that you can go to whenever you have a need to feel loved.
Because this is a tree spell, all you need is a place that you can easily go where there are trees and a little privacy. This could be your own back yard, a park in your neighborhood, or any place you know of that seems appropriate. Even a cemetery will do just fine.
First, set in your mind the idea that you are going to find your own “Loving Tree.” Then, begin your search.
Go to each tree, choosing first the ones that appeal to you the most. Touch the tree trunk. You can either stand against it with your back touching the tree, you can hug it if you want to, or you can simply place the palms of your hands on the tree trunk. You will need to actually touch some part of the tree, so if the tree’s trunk isn’t accessible, touch the lower branches.
Then, close your eyes and feel the energy. What does it feel like? If if feels like a surge of power, you have found a “Power Tree. ” Take time to notice whatever feelings you have when you are touching the tree. Some trees are “Laughing Trees,” and you know this right away, because you immediately feel like laughing.
If at first you feel nothing, be patient. It may take a little bit of time for the tree’s energy to reveal itself to you. You’ll know your “Loving Tree” when you find it, because you will feel happiness and peace as well as a feeling of love and being loved.
If no tree seems right, you may need to consider looking in a different place. However, before you give up on your chosen spot, see if there are any large shrubs in the area, try one or two of them. My “Loving Tree” is actually an Autumn Olive, a very small shrub like tree – very beautiful. Birds and butterflies love her too.

This is a spell to create a happy home. For this spell, gather the following items:
- 1 white candle
- White paper and a pen with red ink (or Dove’s blood ink)
First hold the white candle in both hands and think of all your sorrows and why things are the way they are.
Set the candle down and write down all of your worries, disappointments, and fears on the white paper. Anoint this paper and your writing with honey. Fold it three times.
Light the candle and slowly burn the paper carefully with a fireproof bowl below it. As you do this, chant:
Sadness to the flames
Spirit of Fire quenches my pain
As you chant, visualize your home being happy. If you have children, you could visualize your children well fed and happy, your husband or partner playing with the children and you smiling through it all. For other home situations, visualize whatever it is that would bring happiness to your home.
Repeat for as long as is needed.
Spell By Rose Ariadne
Cosmos, bless me with your essence
Fill my being with your presence
Cosmos, let me be like you
I will never be discouraged
I will never feel despair
Finding in the harshest winds
Music to which I will dance
With pure delight upon the air
Cosmos, make me wise like you
I will never feel confusion
Will perceive the patterns clear
Finding balance in myself,
Harmonic order in the world,
Listening with my soul’s ear.
Cosmos, bless me with your essence
Fill my being with your presence
