Communicate With Spirits
Your house is a sentient being with it’s own spirit and soul.
Some people identify this spirit as their household deities or friendly house spirits. But some people have altogether forgotten how important the spirit of their house is.
Talk to your house.
Houses that have been ignored tend to be dull, tired and susceptible to hauntings and negative energies.
So, talk to your house. Listen to its aches and pains. Say hello.
Tell it that you come in peace, tell it that you are there to listen to it speak. Be grateful to your house, and watch the energies of your home transform themselves into joy.
When an animal goes missing, one common immediate response is to post signs requesting information and assistance from others. This Russian spell takes that notion a step further: assistance is requested from Earth’s various spirit powers, so that they will locate and send your animal back home. As with standard signs, a reward is posted. Should the spell work, be sure to pay it.
Write messages on three pieces of birch bark – one for each of the nature Tsars. It should read as follows:
I’m writing to the Forest Tsar and the Forest Tsarina
and their small children.
I’m writing to the Earth Tsar and the Earth Tsarina
and their small children.
I’m writing to the Water Tsar and the Water Tsarina
and their small children.
I’m writing to inform you that _______ (insert your name)
has lost a _______
(insert color, gender, description, and type of animal including as much descriptive material as you feel is necessary to identify and distinguish your animal from others.)
If you have him/her please send him/her back
without delaying one day, one hour, one minute, one second.
If you don’t comply with my wish,
I swear to pray and testify against you.
If you comply with my wish,
I shall give you _______ (insert specific pledge).
Fasten one message to a tree in the forest, Bury the second in Earth. Attach a small stone to the third and throw it into some living water (such as a river, ocean, creek, lake, etc).
The animal is expected to find its way home shortly.
The Forest Tsar is chief of all woodland spirits; the Water Tsar is chief of all water spirits and so on. Adjust this spell if necessary to suit your circumstances.
The Dragon King of the Sea can be called upon for help and assistance. Here’s how:
- Whisper your message, needs, or desires over a loaf of bread.
- Feed this bread to river or ocean fish.
- Tell the fish to please deliver your message to the Dragon King of the Sea.
When help arrives, be sure to return with offerings of gratitude.
For protection and blessings by the goddess Bast, of yourself and your cat pets, set up an altar with cat pictures and/or statues. These pictures and statues can be of any kind of cat, domestic or wild. Place a picture of yourself, your family, and some of your cats there also. Have two green candles on the altar. This ritual can be performed by itself or as part of a cast circle ritual.
Note: This ritual also calls for a sistrum, which is a sort of rattle made of metal, and deeply associated with the goddess Bast and Egyptian magick. If you don’t have one, use a bell or small wind chimes instead.
To begin the ritual, take the sistrum and slowly dance or walk around the ritual area, shaking the sistrum as you go. Begin and end in the East and move clockwise. Chant as you go:
Joy comes from Bast, the Lady of Cats
The goddess loves and protects all animals.
As a daughter/son of Bast, I call upon her
To pour out her blessings.
Return to the altar and shake the sistrum while you say:
Hail, Bast, Lady of Cats.
Hail, Goddess of earthly delights.
Teach me to rejoice in the being that I am.
Teach me to love and be happy.
If you have pictures of your cats, look at them now with love and happiness. If you don’t have pictures, call up their images mentally. Call each cat by name as if presenting him/her to the goddess. Be alert to the atmosphere around you, for you will very likely experience the presence of the goddess in some manner.
When you have finished, take the sistrum and go to the East. Shake the sistrum five times. Say:
The ears of Bast are sensitive
to every word of harm sent against me and my pets.
My cats and I are protected.
To to the South, shake the sistrum five times and say:
The claws of Bast are sharp in my defence.
My cats and I are protected.
Move to the West. Shake the sistrum five times. Say:
The teeth of Bast are bared to evil-doers.
My cats and I are protected.
Finally, go to the North and shake the sistrum five times. Say:
The eyes of Bast can see through darkness.
Nothing escapes her notice.
My cats and I are protected.
Return to the altar. Shake the sistrum three times. Say:
Listen well, all those who would harm me and mine.
Here is erected a mighty fortress, an unbreakable shield.
You cannot enter here. Your evil thoughts return to you.
The gate is locked against you.
Visualize a green light filling the room, caressing you and the pictures of your cats. Don’t be surprised if your cats themselves enter the room to soak up this blessing.
Lovely Cat-Goddess, I thank you for your blessings.
Keep us in safety, good health, and happiness.
Protect my little ones wherever they may roam.
Blow a kiss to the goddess and extinguish the candles. As a special treat, both to Bast and to your cats, present your pets with a catnip toy to play with.
From: Moon Magick
To petition Bast (the goddess of cats) for healing of cats, chant the following before her picture/statue while holding an actual picture or mental image of the sick animal:
Lift the hand of disease.
Cast out all illness.
Pour your healing powers through (name of cat).
Bast! Restore Health!
Repeat the chant 5 times, or until you feel it is complete.

Did you ever meet someone, an elder perhaps, someone wise and calm, joyful and seemingly ageless, who seems to possess a deep inner peace? Someone who seems to have lived forever, seen everything and has the answers and advice to help us with all our problems?
If we don’t know someone like this, we wish we did, or we long for these qualities in ourselves—the patience and understanding to overcome any obstacle and the ability to learn from our challenges, while keeping a youthful glow and enjoying each day, and finding beauty in everything and everyone around us. Sounds impossible, right? We often attribute these characteristics to fantasy figures. But there truly are people who live this way, yet if we don’t personally know any of them, it seems like fantasy.
So, let’s use fantasy as a bridge to reality, through the magic of the unicorn. Legends of the unicorn speak of them as wise and immortal creatures. This spell is for the unicorn to help us age gracefully with a youthful carefree spirit. This is for people of any age, to ensure the lively and energetic qualities of vitality and joy and, in addition, to help us learn patience and gain wisdom.
You will need:
- A unicorn statue of any size or color
- A piece of white ribbon
- Essential oil or other fragrance blend of your choice
Use your intuition when selecting the oil or blend of oils. Choose a scent that uplifts you and makes you feel cheerful or one you associate with happy memories. Sprinkle a few drops of the oil on the ribbon.
Visualize the unicorn, a wise and experienced sage. She has lived forever and endured many challenges with grace, and now she is bestowing her magic upon you. Make this visualization as detailed as you desire.
If this proves difficult, suspend your disbelief; pretend you are a child again. You meet a unicorn in the wild. Because you carry the white ribbon, the unicorn knows you are a kindred spirit. This ribbon is your link to the unicorn. You drape it around the unicorn’s neck and the two of you walk as companions through the forest. The unicorn confers wisdom upon you. This special wisdom contains the secrets for a happy life, whatever that may be for you.
Tie the ribbon around the statue. This is symbolic of your meeting with the unicorn and your initiation into her mysteries. The secrets will unfold throughout your life as you need them. One of the ways your higher spirit can help you discover what you need is through the use of symbols; the symbol of the unicorn can be a gentle and inspiring teacher and guide.
Speak this chant as you tie the ribbon:
Unicorn of legend, Unicorn of myth,
May your youthfulness and spirit stay with me.
Unicorn of mystery, Unicorn of magic,
May your endurance always offer possibility.
Unicorn of purity, Unicorn of power,
May your strength be at my side in every way.
Unicorn of inspiration, Unicorn of peace,
May your gentleness and grace bless all my days.
With a magical horn positioned precisely at the intuitive center (also known as the brow or third eye chakra), unicorns are strong symbols of psychic power.
To enlist a unicorn’s help in activating your intuitive abilities, relax, close your eyes, and envision yourself in a fairy forest. Journey deeper and deeper into the heart of the forest, knowing that you are approaching a unicorn spirit guide. In time, you will make contact.
When you do, get to know your guide:
- What does he or she look like?
- Where in the fairy forest does he or she like to hang out?
- What is his or her name?
- And what messages does he or she have for you about how to activate your intuitive gifts?
When your communion with this magical, inter-dimensional creature feels complete, thank him or her with an offering or a gift. Whatever feels right to you will do, but keep in mind that unicorns have been known to enjoy apples, crystals, shiny objects, and bubbly drinks.
In the future, you can consult with this guide to receive intuitive messages and learn how to further activate and calibrate your psychic and intuitive gifts.

This spell employs the unicorn’s potent power of purification to clear, and balance your energy field. First, place an attractive unicorn image on your altar or another flat surface. This could be a framed unicorn greeting card, a crystal unicorn statue, or any other unicorn imagery that speaks to you.
Close to the image, place a white rose and light a white votive candle. Sit comfortably in front of the image. Take some deep breaths and center yourself.
When you feel ready, silently summon a unicorn spirit guide and ask this guide to purify your energy. Then generously mist your entire body and the area around your body with rose water. Feel and express gratitude to your unicorn guide, and know that you can call on this guide regularly for help with energetic purification.

Stand before your altar. Relax, and begin.
Feel the earth below you, the firm ground. Experience the earth as upholding you, as maintaining your weight. Feel the earth holding you, rather than you pushing against the earth.
Earth Mother, I stand upon you today and recognize that we begin with you and we will end with you. Uphold me now as I give praise, and support me as I receive blessing.
A child of the earth, I come before the Gods, the Spirits of Nature, and the Ancestors to offer praise. I seek to establish ties, to offer to them and open to them in return.
The waters support and surround me.
The land extends about me.
The sky stretches out above me.
At the center burns a living flame.
I call out to the Keeper of the Gates.
Though I walk on uncertain paths,
Though I travel on unmapped ground,
Guide me, ward me, and relay my voice
As I offer prayers and praise.
In your mind’s eye, see the sacred center open before you: watch the mists part, see the door to the Otherworld open, or watch the spiral of the magic from between the worlds reveal the Otherworld. The Gates are now open, and the true work can begin.
I call out to my ancestors, those who came before me, you of my blood and you of my heart. I seek to give you praise, to remember you now, and to honour you.
Think on your ancestors: see their faces, smile with joy at their presence. If you have praise to give them, do so now.
I call out to the spirits of this place, the spirits of nature who are the soul of this land. I seek to give you praise, to call out to you now, and to honour you.
Think on the nature spirits: the faeries of the wood, the spirits of the land. If you have praise to give them, do so now.
I call out to the deities, first children, eldest and wisest. It is you to whom we look for guidance, and you who grant the greatest blessings. I seek to give you praise, to honour you now, to give you due worship.
Think on the deities: the great ones who bless our lives, who watch over us and show us that unconditional love. If you have praise to give them, do so now.
Optional: If you have a patron deity, one that you might wish to offer to specifically, now is the time to do that. If not, simply move to the next portion.
Today, I have given of my praise and myself.
With love in my heart and devotion on my tongue
I call out now, with all my soul:
Accept these offerings!
Take a moment to visualize, as you shout this last statement, all of your blessings, praise, and intent flowing up to the gods, out to the spirits of nature, and down to the ancestors. Hold yourself in that moment, watching your praises flow from you, and prepare yourself for what may be offered in return.
Now, take your divination tool up. If you don’t have one, you can use an athame, feather, wand, or even your hand.
As I have given to the Powers, I open to them. If there are blessings to be had, what might the nature of those blessings be?
Draw three symbols: one for the Ancestors, one for the Nature Spirits, and one for the Deities. Examine each one, think about the omen offered, and consider how it might translate into blessings.
Now, take these omens and concentrate on them, holding forth a cup of water or other beverage, saying:
Indeed, the Powers offer me blessings. Now I seek the manifestation of those blessings, the outpouring from the Powers that offer them. To those who enter this exchange, pour forth your blessings into my cup!
Envision the blessings before you, either as a mist, or a vortex of energy, or as pictographic representations of individual blessings. Watch them pour into the cup, mixing and infusing with the liquid already inside.
This in my hands is a holy cup of magic, the great blessings offered to me as joyful return of my praises to the Kindreds. Here are the deep waters that flow within the earth and that rain from the sky. These are the waters of life!
I accept this blessing, and I drink it with love and knowledge of the Powers!
Now, with joy in my heart, I give thanks: To the Deities, thank you for your blessings. To the Nature Spirits, thank you for your blessings. To the Ancestors, thank you for your blessings. To all those Powers who have aided me, thank you for your blessings.[If you made an offering to a patron above, make sure you thank him or her first: thank in the reverse order from invitation.]
To the Keeper of the Gates
For guiding me and warding me
Thank you for your protection.
In your mind’s eye, see the sacred center close before you: watch the mists gather, see the door to the Otherworld close, or watch the spiral of the magic from between the worlds close in on the Otherworld. The Gates are now closed, and this rite is ending.
Mother of all, to you I will return all things I have left unused. For supporting and upholding me in this rite, I thank you!
This rite is ended!
Fairies and clovers are connected in lore and legend. For this spell, you will first need to find a four leafed clover. This is not always simple to do, and part of the reason the fairies will bless you with their presence is that you put forth quite a bit of effort in the search.
Once you have found the four leafed clover, lay seven grains of wheat over it. Concentrate on your desire to see or communicate with the fairy realm. If luck is with you, the fairies will appear or speak to you.
