A spiritual illness can be felt in a variety of ways. There may be a feeling of being totally drained, usually a result of depression (which is an illness of the spirit as well as of the mind), there may be addictions, there may be a string of bad luck, poor social relationships etc. Spiritual illness can also produce physical illness.
If it is you that is suffering from this illness, cast a circle and then visualize white light streaming from above into you. You should be able to feel this light like a warm wave of love. It is the love of The Goddess and of the spirits of your ancestors and guardians that you carry with you always.
Concentrate on realizing that you are a Star of God sent into this world for spiritual experience and that the difficulties you are experiencing are only temporary and are a necessary part of your journey to spiritual enlightenment.
Great Goddess and all you spirits of love that surround me,
bring me blessings.
Be with me now and forever.
If this healing is for someone else, you will of course have to persuade them to be involved in this – if the person is a big cynic, this can be a difficult task, so perhaps one of the other healing spells would be a better choice. But if the person is into it, cast a circle, then, as before, visualize white light streaming from above, into your head, and through your body. Then lay your hands (which will probably have a slight to moderate tingling feeling) on the person and send the energy flowing into them.
You are filled with the white light of The God/dess.
You are a Star of God.
You are surrounded by loving spirits.
Great God/dess and all you spirits of love that surround (person’s name), bring him/her blessings.
Be with him/her, now and forever.
If you have been very disappointed, if you have broken up with a loved one and feel lonely and betrayed, Put oil of lily on a cotton ball, hold it in your hand go to a window, and look at the moon, waxing or waning. Now inhale the scent of the lily warmed by your hand and say to yourself:
I am never alone
I am surrounded by the love of the Divine Mother,
the Lady of the Woods and the Springs and the Flowers,
I am never forlorn
For I am loved by the Divine Mother
And she has already sent her blessings after me
I am never alone or forlorn
My ancestors’ spirits watch over me.
This healing spell is best performed on a Monday.
Here’s what you need:
- a picture (or item) of the sick person
- a golden wish cord, yellow rope or ribbon
Hold the cord over the picture (or item) and say the following, tying a knot in the cord with each phrase:
With knot of one, my spell’s begun
With knot of two my word is true,
With knot of three, I bring healing to thee,
By knot of four, you’re better than before,
By knot of five you are no longer sick,
By knot of six this spell’s alive,
Seventh knot sealed, you are healed
Tie one last knot as you say:
“So mote it be”
Now, burn the knotted cord to release the magick.
- Large circle of cloth
- St. John’s wort oil
- 2 yellow candles
- St John’s Wort flowers (any yellow flowers may be substituted)
Spread cloth on floor and sprinkle few drops of blood-red St. John’s wort oil. Anoint candles with more oil and divide flowers into two bunches. Sit in the middle of the cloth and place flowers at the edge of cloth on each side. Light candles and place them in front and behind you. Pick 2 perfect blooms and hold one upright palm on your hand.
Focus your mind and chant:
“Oh healing light, surround me now,
relive my spirit’s darkest hour”
Imagine the light being drawn from the candles into the flowers on your palms, and from there feel it permeating the whole of your body. Try to keep concentration for 20 minutes. To complete, take the two flowers in your hands and give them back to Mother Earth.
This is so simple that I’m not even sure if it qualifies as being a “spell.” It does, however, work like magick. When your energy is dragging, sit with your back pressed against a tree trunk and let the tree’s limitless energy flow into you. Very excellent if you have been walking or hiking long distances and also if you have been ill.

Perform this spell during an eclipse or a waxing moon phase. Arrange sea shells on a secluded beach, in the shape of a circle. If you do not have access to a beach, perform this ritual in a garden or forest using stones, branches or flowers to form the circle.
Kneel at the center facing the ocean. Light a blue candle and incense of your choice. Raise arms high and recite:
“With smoke and flame this spell’s begun.
O Goddess of the stars, moon, and the sun,
Let the healing power begin.
Let the Earth be whole again.”
“The Earth is my mother and I am her child.
The earth is my lover, free and wild.
Heal on the outside, heal within.
Land and sea, fire and wind.”
“With love sincere,
I chant this prayer to make mankind
Begin to care.
Let every sister and every brother
Heal the wounds of the Great Earth Mother.”
“Let the healing power begin,
Let the Earth be whole again.
Heal on the outside, heal within.
Land and sea, fire and wind.
So mote it be!”

The Kalevala is a treasure trove of ancient shamanistic practices including the following healing spell.
For this ritual, stand in the east and call in the element of air. Ask in all humility for assistance. Light a blue candle and a stick of sandalwood incense as an offering to the element. Now say:
Vanish into the sky!
Pain, fly up into the air.
Rise up into the air!
So that the wind may take thee away.
So that the storm may chase thee to far places.
Where neither Sun nor Moon gives light.
Where no hot wind burns the flesh.
Thank the element of air, and let the candle burn down. As with all magic, in addition to this spell, it is essential that you have done everything possible in the physical realm to aid the healing

Place peppermint leaves on top of a photograph of the person who needs help healing. (This could be a picture of you, if you wish.)
“Charge” a blue candle with your desire for perfect health for the person in the photo. (This has to do with anointing the candle and “charging it” with your desire while preparing it) Carve the candle with the individuals name, along with a good health symbol. (I like to use the symbol for the Red Cross)
Burn the candle beside the photograph. When the candle has burned down, dispose of the peppermint leaves outdoors in a bush, under a tree, etc…Repeat as needed, with fresh peppermint leaves each time.

Find a tall sturdy tree that looks healthy and strong. Circle the tree nine times clockwise, asking it to ease your pain, using a chant such as this one:
O great tree, O strong tree,
Absorb my pain so I’ll be free.
Lay back against the tree’s firm, solid trunk; press your back into the bark. Feel the tree absorbing the pain as your back releases it into the tree. After a few minutes, rise and thank the tree by burying something precious at its foot.
