- Goal: To use if you feel the presence of benign spirits.
- Optional extras: White candle
You can do this spell in front of your altar or walking around the house (be careful to have the candle in something that will render it safe to carry) or any place in the house where you are particularly aware of the spirit’s presence.
Familiars are particularly helpful in working with spirit entities since they often sense energies that people do not. If you find your pet consistently looking at a particular spot in the house or acting as if they see something you can’t, you may want to do this spell, just in case!
This is not a banishing spell. If you want to be rid of a spirit, this is not the spell to use. This spell is essentially a way of saying, “I know you’re here, and you are welcome to stay as long as you don’t cause any problems.
Greetings, O spirit
Whose form was once flesh
And who lingers on
For reasons I cannot know
You are welcome here
In this place that is mine
As long as your intent is benign
And your energy mellow
I will not interfere with you
If you will not interfere with me
Let us live together in peace
And may your spirit be blessed.
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.
To bless your kitchen herbs, rise at dawn and then gather all of your herbs together on the kitchen counter. Hold your hands above them with your palms down, and then say:
God and Goddess of the good Earth
Bless these herbs with love and mirth
And as their powers are released
Let them flavor well each feast.
On the night of the full moon, go into your garden, pour a libation of fresh spring water, and say:
Plants of wonder plants of power
Increase in potency by minute and hour
I conjure you now, I charge you with strength
I give you life of infinite length
And boundless magical energy
As I will it, plants, charged you be.
Don’t forget to bless your garden spirits as well. Leave some fragrant herbs strewn in the garden, or string some silver bells, and say the following:
All members of the Sprite and Fey
I offer myself to you this day
For spiritual harvest and your work here below
So that I may flower and blossom and grow
And learn of myself and that up ahead
While working or playing or dreaming in bed
And in return, there is nothing I ask
But that within your magic spirit can bask
When you start a plant from seeds, it is proper to bless the seeds beforehand. Place them on your altar and light a white candle. Add a clear quartz crystal to the altar for extra energy. Say something like:
Lord and Lady,
I ask that you bless these seeds and impart your energies into them
so that a large, beautiful, strong plant may
grow in your honor.
So mote it be!
As you can see, the blessing need not be stiff or formal. A simple stated request works best. Another way to bless the seeds is to call upon the universal energies of the four elements (fire, earth, air, and water). A simply stated request is usually enough.

- A tall Glass of Water
- A Bag of Salted Dried Pumpkin Seeds
This particular spell was in common use as early as the 1920’s and quite possibly before. This ritual confers a double blessing since it acts as a spiritual cleansing in addition to attracting wealth and prosperity to the individual that performs it.
Sit in a place where you can meditate quickly for a few minutes. Open your bag of pumpkin seeds and count out 9 seeds. Eat the first seed. You may choose to break the seed open with your teeth and eat the soft inner seed, or you can eat the salty hard shell as well. Slowly chew the first seed and wash it down with a drink of cool water. Repeat the process until you consume all nine seeds.
After you swallow the last seed say to yourself aloud or silently:
May the seeds of this holy gourd
cleanse me of all negativity
and fill my life with wealth and blessings.
You will be surprised at how effective something so simple can be! I have heard of people winning jackpots at casinos and encounter long lost friends after performing this easy ritual.
