Amulet

For this spell you will need the following:

  • a quiet place to work
  • a smooth flat surface or table top
  • one small cotton drawstring bag
  • a small quartz crystal
  • a small white candle
  • equal parts of the following herbs: Rosemary, Lavender, and Chamomile

Clean your work surface and place the rosemary lavender and chamomile in a pile on the table in front of you. Light your candle, and take a deep cleansing breath. It is time to begin.

With your finger or fingers (which ever feels comfortable) draw a meandering path in the herbs – starting from the center. This represents the current flow of clarity that up till now has been the norm… take your time… enjoy the play of finger and herb…. this is the last time you will take a long and arduous journey to clear thought and vision.

When you are done “playing,” take the palm of your hand and smooth out the herbs, erasing the patterns and designs that were just drawn. Now, say:

Clarity of thought and mind
Come to me now and every time
I am yours and you are mine
Clear thought and vision intertwined

As you say those words, use your forefinger (your pointing finger) to draw a spiral design in the herbs starting from the inside out, drawing it in a counter-clockwise direction. This is the spell of undoing…. undoing the necessity for wavering and doubt… undoing dead ends and blind alleys.

Once again take the palm of your hand and smooth out the herbs, erasing the spiral design… do this slowly and thoughtfully… Now, once again say the words:

Clarity of thought and mind
Come to me now and every time
I am yours and you are mine
Clear thought and vision intertwined

and use your finger to draw a spiral design, this time moving from the outside in… in a clockwise direction… spiraling gently into the center, and when you are done place the crystal in that center spot.

Spend some time thinking about how easily clear thought and vision can spiral into your mind, your heart, your experience, your dreams, … how effortless it can be… a smooth gentle spiral… Imagine that the spiral is not just flat on the surface of your work space… but three dimensional… and real.

Repeat the spell words one last time… say it like you mean it. These are words of power. Claim them.

Clarity of thought and mind
Come to me now and every time
I am yours and you are mine
Clear thought and vision intertwined

Clap your hands 3 times, loudly ,.. and then quickly scoop the herbs and the crystal into your drawstring bag… pull the drawstring tight… It is done!

Any time you feel an extra need for clarity or vision … you can open the bag and inhale the scents. This spell is best performed when the moon is new.

We all suffer from stress at one time or another, and in a workplace it is often difficult to reverse the situation. This spell can be taken to your workplace or used in other stressful situations, with minimum disturbance. For healing and magic, the earth, or Mother Earth, from whence all things spring, is unsurpassed. Add a little Borage, the flower of courage, and some of your own essence, and even the most difficult of predicaments can be overcome.

Here is a Mediterranean spell to charge you with the strength to overcome a stressful situation. The items you will need are as follows:

  • A handmade cloth bag
  • Some dry earth
  • A small bunch of Borage flowers

Instructions:

Make a small bag. It can be very plain and simple, but it is important that you stitch it together by hand, so that you are putting your self-essence into it. The bag needs to be large enough for you to get both hands inside, with a drawstring to secure it. As a special touch, embroider your initials on it in your favorite color.

On a bright, sunny day collect a few handfuls of dry earth and some borage flowers. Feel the sun’s rays warming your body and the flowers and the soil in your hands, and store the memory carefully.

Dry the Borage flowers, then place them with the earth in your bag. pull the drawstring to secure them. keep the bag in an accessible place. When things are going badly or you need a pick-me-up, it will only take a few moments to place your hands in the bag, touch the dried Borage flowers, reflect on your stored memories, and let Mother Earth work her magic.

Eggs are an ancient symbol of fertility, new life, and the cycle of birth, death and rebirth of the Universe. As such, they make terrific charms for fertility, pregnancy, new endeavors, and similar types of magick. These types of charms are fairly easy, and very versatile.

Start with raw eggs. My favorite tool to pierce the shell is a small nail ~ for some reason, I’ve never had good luck piercing the shells with needles.

Pierce the narrow end of the shell with a tiny hole. At the wider end of the egg, use the nail to pierce a wider hole. This is the trickiest part of the operation, but I’ve been lucky and only lost a few eggs. Just handle the eggs gently, and once you make the hole in the wider end, use the tip of the nail to gently enlarge the hole.

Then, for those of you who have never done this before, simply place your lips over the smaller hole and blow. (No, you don’t want to know what it looks like! LOL)

When the egg is blown out, place a finger over the smaller hole, and fill the egg about halfway with warm water. Shake well and rinse; do this several times to make sure the egg is completely cleaned out. Put in a safe place to dry.

When these blown-out eggs are dry, they can then be filled with various herbs and such, and decorated as charms. The decorations can be as simple, or as elaborate as you wish.

Here are some possible color, symbol and herb combinations for a few different magickal purposes:

  • Fertility – Pregnancy: spring green or bright yellow; basil, poppy, cucumber, acorns, myrtle, all nuts, apple, pomegranate, mistletoe, myrtle; roosters and hens, spiral, the runic B, raindrops
  • Protection: red, white or purple; ash, basil, dill, fennel, hyssop, mistletoe, rosemary, rue, vervain; pentagram, equal-armed cross
  • Healing: green or blue (purple is good for severe illnesses); rosemary, red carnation petals, sage, saffron, lavender, myrrh; pentagram, oak leaves

When preparing the herbs to put inside these charms, they must be ground very fine. Remember, these are very tiny holes you will be putting them into.

Once the herbs are ground and charged, you are ready to pour them in. If you plan on hanging the eggs, you must first thread a cord or string through the egg. I would tie the knot at the smaller hole, leaving the larger hole to pour the herbs through.

If you don’t plan on hanging them, you could use any number of things to seal the hole, and provide additional magick. “Seals” that come to mind include acorns, small stones, pieces of wood and shells.

Fill the egg as much as possible with your herbal mixture of choice, and then seal the other hole. (Note, if you plan on hanging the eggs, this second seal is not vital; simply be careful where you hang it.)

My personal preference would be to decorate the egg first, and then fill it with herbs, but you do whichever works best for you.

Once the charm is completed and fully charged, you can either hang it up, or place it somewhere where the egg might remain intact. I would also plan on renewing these charms periodically.

can-cats-eat-chicken-bonesThe crossbones amulet is excellent for removing negative energy, and breaking a hex or any negativity that is or has been sent your way.

The amulet itself is made from two small bones taken from chicken wings. The chicken bones actually absorb and hold negativity. The bones are tied together with black thread in the shape of a solar cross (an equal armed cross).

The procedure is as follows:

Using your basic altar layout, bring with you the following: two bones, black thread, a white candle, a bottle of Power Oil, and Gris-Gris Faible Incense. Light your altar candles, and light your incense. Dress your white candle with Power Oil, and light it. As you do, pray that the individual who will wear the crossbones will grow in spiritual strength and enlightenment.

Begin tying the two bones together with the black thread as you chant:

The crossbones will work here,
absorb and hold negativity.
Into your marrow, it goes in thee:
all evil and negativity.

Consecrate the amulet with this procedure. Sprinkle with Holy Water as you say:

With water do I consecrate this amulet,
an instrument which will absorb and hold negative energy
sent to its wearer.

Sprinkle the amulet with salt as you affirm.

With earth do I consecrate this amulet,
an instrument which will absorb and hold negative energy
sent to its wearer.

Pass the amulet through the candle flame as you affirm:

With fire do I consecrate this amulet,
an instrument which will absorb and hold negative energy
sent to its wearer.

Pass the amulet through the incense while affirming:

With air do I consecrate this amulet
an instrument which will absorb and hold negative energy
sent to its wearer.

Now that your amulet is completed, it should be worn over your heart next to your skin. Daily wear this amulet until your life improves decidedly for the better and you feel the negativity has been completely absorbed.

If, at any time, the amulet begins to feel heavy upon you heart chakra you must stop wearing the amulet. The crossbones have reached their maximum in absorbing negative energy, like a sponge that can soak up just so much water and that’s it. Since the excess negative energy being sent to you will not be able to enter the bones, it will have no choice but to attach itself to your aura. Once the old amulet is removed it must be discarded properly, and (if necessary) another one made.

Discarding the Old Amulet:

The safest method of doing this is through ritual. Using your basic altar layout, bring with you the following: your old amulet, the remainder of the white candle you used when you made the amulet, and a sheet of white paper.

Light your altar candles. Light some incense – something light and cheerful. Light your white candle. Sprinkle Holy Water on the white paper. Place the old crossbones amulet on the paper and begin folding the amulet in the paper.

Take your white candle and let the wax drip on the paper until it is completely sealed with the white wax as you affirm:

Crossbones you’ve served me well,
negative energy within you swells.
Now it’s time, I put you to rest,
for you have now done your best.

When the paper is completely covered with wax, the amulet can be burned in a fire, or discarded in the garbage. Follow with a bath.

Corbis_turquoise

The ancients regarded turquoise as a powerful magickal aid to ward off misfortune, illness, and the evil eye. You can use turquoise to make your own amulet for protection.

To begin, during the waxing Moon take a piece of blue turquoise or an item of blue turquoise jewelry and hold it in your hand for a moment. In your mind’s eye, picture a blue light surrounding you. Hold the stone to your heart, and breathe on it to charge it with your power, saying:

Stone of blue, surround me with protective energy.
I am protected by your soothing blue light.

Carry your turquoise with you or wear it as often as you can. Handle it frequently to keep the spell active.

Being A Witch

We should educate people that ‘Witch’ is not evil but ancient and positive. The first time I called myself a ‘Witch’ was the most magical moment of my life.
