The use of coins in Peaceful Home spell-work has a long basis in history, as a matter of fact. One old spell for promoting peace in the home consists of dressing a blue candle with pennyroyal oil and setting it on a paper on which has been written the name of everyone in the household, crossed by the entire text of the 23rd Psalm of the Bible.

Four coins — usually four nickels or four dimes — are placed around the candle in the form of an equal-armed cross, oriented North, South, East, and West.

The coins that surround the candle should all be of the same denomination. Back in the days when women often did not have jobs outside the home and the husband brought home all the pay, it was said that the four coins should be ones that were freely given by the husband to his wife. Nowadays, when most women have their own jobs, that is probably not so important, but the idea of the four coins remains.

After the coins are put into place, the candle is lit and the 23rd Psalm is recited aloud. When the candle has finished burning, the coins are buried at the four corners of the house to let the work continue. The candle wax (and the paper the candle was sitting on) is buried under the house, thus again forming a five-spot pattern. If the house is built in such a way that you cannot get under it, the wax may be buried at the front door instead.

Old spells like this can be adapted for use by people who live in apartments, but how they do so is going to be unique to their own situation. In any case, it is important to properly dispose of the ritual remains of the spell by laying them in the corners.

Here’s the 23rd Psalm, King James version, if you need it:

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

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.

The type of lamp recommended is a hurricane or kerosene lamp.The basic fuel mixture is a blend of castor oil, olive oil, and kerosene. Use 2/3 kerosene to 1/3 oil mixture. A simple terracotta oil lamp may also be used – the basic fuel mixture would then be olive oil, or palm oil.

Start with a clean lamp – a new one is best – but a used one is fine as long as it has been thoroughly cleansed.

At the bottom of the lamp place a magnet and a hair from the head of each person the lamp is intended for or their names written on parchment paper cut a circle. Add a teaspoon of honey. Pour in two ounces of virgin olive oil that has been thoroughly infused with two tablespoons of the following mixture: two parts of white rose petals and one part cumin seed.

Now add a small piece of orris root and High John the Conquerer root, along with 1/2 teaspoon of each of the following: passion flower, mistletoe, jasmine flowers.

Fill the rest of the way with your basic fuel mixture. Light the lamp and recite a prayer to Saint Raymond, or whatever deity you wish to invoke for harmony and happy relationships.

Once it is lit, the flame must not be extinguished until the goal is accomplished. Each day at the same time, your desire should be restated and the prayer recited while turning the lamp in a clockwise direction (to get the ingredients moving), and the lamp should be refueled if necessary.

NoteIf some of the ingredients seem difficult to acquire, feel free to use any herbs and oils that are useful in spells for harmony and peace. For example, a small rose quartz can be substituted for the orris and High John the Conquerer root.

A Prayer to Saint Raymond is as follows:

Glorious St. Raymond, filled with compassion for those who invoke thee and with love for those who suffer heavily leaden with the weight of my troubles, I cast myself at thy feet and humbly beg of thee to take the present affair which I recommend to thee under thy special protection. Vouchsafe to recommend it to the Blessed Virgin Mary and lay it before the Throne of Jesus, so that He may bring it to a happy issue. Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted. Above all obtain for me the grace of one day beholding my God face to Face, and with thee and Mary and the saints praising and blessing to all eternity. Amen.

Good St. Raymond, pray for us and obtain our request.
Good St. Raymond, pray for us and obtain our request.
Good St. Raymond, pray for us and obtain our request.
Our Father, Hail Mary and Glory be to the Father.

This dish accents creative communications, especially with those ever-annoying know-it-alls, wiseacres, gossips, conversation hogs, and those who are quick to jump into discussions just to hear themselves talk! The yellow parsnips, carrots, and pepper reflect the air element, which empowers our words.

Ingredients:

  • 2 medium carrots
  • 2 medium parsnips
  • 1 yellow pepper (large)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups sliced cabbage
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 4 (4-5 oz) fish fillets
  • Olive oil
  • 3/4 lbs sweet potato, peeled and cooked tender

Cut carrots, parsnips, and yellow pepper into thin strips. As you do, focus on “cutting through” anything that stands between you and speaking your mind.

In a large frying pan (indoors or on the side burner of your grill), place the butter, carrots, pepper, and parsnips to fry. As you notice the carrots and parsnips getting tender, add the cabbage into the fray, along with the vinegar and soy sauce.

Coat the vegetables evenly (you want the magick to flow evenly into all the components) while saying:

Parsnips, help me speak my mind
With carrots and cabbage, my magick binds
Potatoes put me on firm ground
Creative communications shall abound!

When the vegetables are close to being fully cooked, place the fish into a no-stick frying pan with just a touch of olive oil and cook over a low heat.

Using a knife, or toothpick if the fish is delicate, carve a symbol into the fillet that represents your goal. Brown the fish about 5 minutes on each side, adjusting for thickness.

Serve the fish on the bed of sweet potatoes, which will create a firm foundation for your spell. Since fish are symbolically associated with abundance, this dish makes sure you’re never at a loss for words!

NOTE: Enjoy a piece of mint candy or gargle with mouthwash before working this spell. Since you want to manifest the best possible communications, this emphasizes the goal from the inside out. Additionally, min supports effective interactions.

From: Magick for the Wild Woman

Color: Lavender
Element: Water
Altar: Upon a lavender cloth set a tray of cakes shaped like clasping hands, and many cups full of hot tea.
Offerings: Promise to attempt to be more considerate of those you live with.
Daily Meal: Any food, but it must be served from one great plate for every table, and it should not be in separate portions.

Invocation:

May there be Peace in this house.

(Response: “May there be peace in this house!“)

Peace can be a hard mistress.
The daily round of the ordinary,
The simple turn of day and night and day
The presence of the same souls
Can come to be like a shadow on the sun,
And yet Peace still demands
That we find a way to move past
That ordinariness
And all the thousand thorns and briars
And bring Peace into the house.

(Response: “May there be peace in this house!“)

Take the hand of your sister, your brother,
The one who shares your roof, your table,
The ground you walk on,
Whose feet know the boards as well as your own,
And swear to find a way
To bring peace into the space between you.

(Response: “May there be peace in this house!“)

Chant:

My brother, my heart, my sister, my soul;
My family, my life, come in from the cold;
My sister, my heart, my brother, my soul;
My family, my life, that makes this life whole.

(Instead of a ritual, this period of time should be used to mediate and address problems between members of the family, with emphasis on peacemaking and compromise and useful solutions. At the end of the meeting, all share cakes and tea.)

I don’t often go in for channeled information, but this talk, or guided meditation, channeled through David Brown. can be a useful tool to reconnect with your inner parents. And there is a great explanation as to why this is important. So, here goes:

Greetings dear ones, for I AM KRYON of Magnetic Service.

Once again it is wonderful to be here on this warm summer night. There is much love in the air; the planets are shifting, creating the right circumstances for you to meet your soul mates, your twin flames. Love is the only way and you will find love within another person. True love can only really be expressed through another person or other people and joy is an emotion you will experience in your relationships with others and by being with others. As we have said in past channeling, love will always find a way. Like the tiny drop of water that falls from a cloud and makes its way back to the ocean. Remember, love and joy are intimately connected.

Many of you on the Spiritual path took a journey of the soul to disconnect from relationships and to work through your own issues on an individual basis. And now it’s time to reconnect. What this means is that within yourself you will reconnect your inner masculine and inner feminine, your inner father and your inner mother. It is very important on the inside that your inner mother and father relate to the child and also as husband and wife. You will find this husband and wife energy – the husband on the masculine or right side of the body and the wife on the feminine or left side. Sometimes, depending on your social conditioning, these energies can get mixed up.

So, for just a moment close your eyes, go inward and observe, in your own energy field, exactly where your inner mother and your inner father are within your bodies. Be patient and wait for the answers. What we want to do is place the inner father in the area of the crown chakra, the third eye and the throat chakra and the inner mother in the area of the solar plexus, the sacral chakra and the base chakra.

Ensure that your feminine energy is on the left and that your masculine energy is on the right. In this energy you will find it simple to readjust, for whilst your energy is in this shape processing is very easy. Unless of course your inner mother is unhappy that your inner father is at the head of your body or the inner mother is unhappy with the relationship of the mother and father. Then your inner father must receive enough energy to maintain his position there.

Remember, only the father can connect to Father Sky and only the mother can connect to Mother Earth. So, let this to happen and let your spirit guides and Kryon help you with this, you should be able to feel your energies instantly increase whilst this action happens. We suggest that every day you check that your energy is in this format within your bodies.

In months gone by, we have channelled a message about the fear of emotional stability – there are energies within each human being that feed off emotional instability, anger, hatred, heartache, pain, and negative energies. These energies continually keep you in a negative space and whilst your energy is in this format you can acknowledge and release them and let them go. So, get in touch with those energies that feed off negative emotion and perpetuate that energy. Be supported by Mother Earth and Father Sky and this Kryon energy that is here with us in this room tonight. Acknowledge these energies, release them and then let them go. Thank them for the lessons of the past and release them… with love.

Dear ones, there is much love in the air this night. You may also bring in your inner magician to help you with this, for there can be much fear in confronting such an energy. Step by step as you erode the fear you will become more magical within. You will become more excited about your own lives, about manifesting a life that you truly choose to be of your own.

Now, make a love connection with each member of this circle this night, a connection through your heart. Remember, where there is no connection, there is loneliness and disconnection from the Divine, from Mother Earth and from Father Sky. Permit your connection to be enhanced in this energy and invite support from your spirit guides, your angels and from the Kryon energy.

Be patient for this is a difficult energy to release and don’t sell yourself short. This energy has not only held you back but it has also held human-kind back for many thousands of years. Your inner magician can feed off this energy and as you release it, your magician becomes stronger. Let your inner magician heal this wound. In a way, your inner magician will become more charged and powerful by this energy thus the more magic you will make in your lifetime. Things will be easier to manifest.

There is also a paradox in the process of releasing fear – “What will I feel like without fear? I am afraid to release the fear.” So, hand that one over to Spirit, to Kryon and let go the fear of handing power over to your magician, the fear of giving more power to your magician, for you are your own magician. You are the one that will create a reality, you are the one with dreams and it is only fear that stands between your dreams and reality. As this energy is released, you will begin to feel your vibration change very rapidly and you will also maintain and sustain this shift of consciousness.

All of you in this room are healers. You have been in a contract with this energy to slow down your growth, to hold you in a space where you could not live your life as you would want to. This makes you strong and powerful. You have learned many lessons and know many secrets about the Universe. You also have a great understanding of how things should be. It is now time to put this understanding into practice by releasing the energy that feeds off the fear of emotional stability – that constantly keeps you agitated like the ocean waves. When you live a life with calm, peaceful and focused emotions then your life will become as you see and want it.

So, release these energies purely through intent whilst at the same time thanking God for the miracle to do this. Let love flow through your hearts and into the spaces that are left open as this energy releases. Let in more and more love and be aware of your vibrations as they soar higher and higher – higher than you have ever been lifted before. Maintain an earthly connection at the same time and seeing that your roots go firmly into the ground, connect with the heart of Mother Earth, then allow your vibrations to soar higher and higher until a very high vibration of love is reached… and on towards ecstasy. This will intimidate that energy and help you release more quickly.

To enter a state of high vibration whilst you are deeply connected to earth is a very unusual experience. Most of the teachings in meditation ask you to go higher and higher without a connection to earth. Tonight we will take you on a journey to meet your magical child. That part of yourself that will return to your physical body last of all – for the magical child has answers to everything. This magical child of a high vibration knows and understands you and your dreams. So, let your vibrations soar higher and higher and let your soul be guided by your magical child.

Once again stay connected – through your heart – to every member of the group as you let your energies soar higher. You will find yourself in a space where you meet your magical child. Be with this child who has much love in its heart for you. This child knows everything about the entire Universe and understands that you are on a journey. But so too is the child – a journey of separating and returning to wholeness. Be patient with the child. Listen as the child speaks to you. Let the love from the child flow into your heart and expand through your body pushing your heart and your vibration even higher. Permit this love to flow between yourselves, between your DNA. Allow for an expansion of your energies. Become loose and free inside so that this love can flow into the darkest of spaces.

Your energies will be free to allow you to release whatever there is to release and to let go. They will soar higher and higher and become more spacious on the inside. You will release those things that don’t work – that stop you living your dreams. Love will permeate those body cells and make them softer, more gentle, more caring and more receptive. And, just like the water always finds its way back to the ocean, love will find its way back to where it needs to be. So, let the love flow to where it needs to be, for tonight, the planets are so aligned that this can happen. You will be set free so that you can let love flow. Where there is disconnection between the masculine and the feminine or the inner husband and the inner wife, let the love dissolve this disconnection.

There’s a place in your body where the masculine and the feminine energies won’t mix or merge. Let love flow and dissolve that that prevents them mixing and merging – when you have a working relationship on the inside you can also have one on the outside. Be guided and, without force, let that magical child speak of the dreams and the relationship that it has for its mother and father. Let the child heal your inner mother and father so that they relate well to one another. Loss, hurt, and pain, are energies that harm the mother father relationship. These energies turn bad or sour. This is not the way it is meant to be. So, let your magical child speak of its dreams and how it wants its mother and father to be. Let the magical child speak of how it wishes to be nurtured and loved. Welcome this energy and let it flow into your body.

Beautiful, loving, caring relationships are not mass consciousness; they are the exception to the rule. This child will return when the inner mother and the inner father relate to the child’s dreams – they will relate as the sun and moon relates to the earth.

The Universe paints a picture for all those willing to understand, for those with a desire to love, to experience the energy of devotion towards another human being. The Universe speaks continually. Whatever questions you have will be answered, through observation and by listening to your inner voice. There is always an answer to what we seek. Some things are so great and so challenging that only a small piece of the answer is given. Everything on earth is in duality – either masculine or feminine and the way to manifest something on earth is to operate through the masculine. Masculine things happen in straight lines, step-by-step. Answers will come slowly but surely like the creation of the statue of David that Michael Angelo slowly hewed from a piece of rock. For each answer to a question, you take one step. Answer another question, take another step. Often it may seem you are being guided away from your dream, but you need to experience this in order to live your dream.

Remember that love is the answer, love is the way… and where there is darkness in your body, shine love which is light. You may be afraid, ashamed or feel guilty to look into those dark places but with courage and by shining the light of love you will receive many beautiful gifts. So, speak to your magical child. Talk of those dark places in your life, places where you would like light to shine… then wait for the answer. Your magical child scans the Universe – for each human being is a microcosm of the Universe itself – and will provide a loving answer.

In the Kryon channelling, the word ‘magic’ means Divine – the physical manifestation of Divine will. The Divine wants you to have a magical life with magical relationships. The Divine wants your hearts to be full of love and joy and ecstasy. In meeting your soul mate – your twin flame – you will feel your hearts merge. You will feel the vibration, so unusual but so exciting, of your twin flame. Only your heart can lead the way to a relationship like that… for your heart is the feminine. So, let your heart lead the way into the relationship of your dreams.

And now dear ones, this is Kryon signing out.
Go well, God Bless and take care.

Often, the items we truly need cannot ride home with us in a bag from the mall during the holiday season countdown. The day before Thanksgiving, take a trip to the tree nursery and find a small, potted evergreen. On your way home, purchase a few yards of red, green, and white ribbon.

During the Thanksgiving supper, introduce the tree to the family and the tribe to the tree. Each member of your clan should tie a ribbon on the tree to represent an intangible blessing they would like for the upcoming Yule season. Wishes could be for peace, enough rest, health, etc. Bless the tree and set it where it will have enough light.

When family and friends visit, explain the purpose of the wish tree to them and give them a ribbon to tie on the tree, too. The tree is for everyone. If you plan to use the tree in ritual, have everyone participating make a small ornament, empowered for strengths like self-esteem, goal planning, security, etc. and hang it on the tree while connecting with the divinity of their choice.

On the first day of February, remove all the ornaments and ribbons. Burn the ribbons and cast the ashes to the winds. Pack the ornaments away. Next year, when you open the box, you can de-magick the ornaments and return them to their owners, or hang them on your big tree in memory of last year’s prosperity. Continue to take good care of the tree over the remaining winter months. Don’t forget to give it water and plenty of love. In the spring, you can plant the tree outside on your property or on the property of a friend.

(The above “The Yule Wish Tree” by Silver RavenWolf is quoted directly from Llewellyn’s 1995 Magical Almanac, page 264, Llewellyn Worldwide Publications, 1994.)

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.

Listen To Me

This isn’t exactly a spell, but it’s a really easy way to connect with your own inner voice, and it might give you some ideas for spell work in the future. For example, you could cast a spell for harmony between your “Inner Mother” and your “Rebellious Child.” I’m sure that as you read through the list, and think about who speaks to you from within, more ideas will come to you.

Here’s the basic concept:

Since we each have so many inner voices, every day there are all kinds of “committee meetings” going on inside our heads. The one speaking right now is the one who is curious, who loves to learn.

You don’t need to call your inner voices a “Committee” if you don’t want to. Feel free to name them something different if you’d like. Here are some ideas:

  • The Inner Family
  • Inner Parts
  • Inner Tribe

Identifying your inner voices:

As you read the list below, take a separate piece of paper (or your journal) and make your own list. You will find that you will identify with some of the inner voices listed here, and some you will pass right over. That’s perfectly okay. You are the only one who truly can identify your own inner voices. You might find that some of them sound exactly like people you grew up with.

  • The Critic
  • The Peacemaker
  • The Organizer
  • The Caretaker
  • The Happy Child
  • The Poet
  • The Fighter
  • The Gypsy
  • The Hermit
  • The Grump
  • The Guru
  • The Yogini
  • Miss Responsible
  • The One Who Loves to Cook
  • The One Who Was Shamed
  • The Healer
  • The Good Mother
  • The Nature Lover
  • The Professional/Business Woman
  • The One Who Waits
  • The Inner Cheerleader

Take a look at the list you made of your own inner Committee. Some of the voices on your list are clearly positive. Some are more neutral. And some may seem negative and bothersome. This is all okay! They are each needing to be heard.

A few of them may seem to be dominant, the ones who are continually “running the show.” Others may be living on the fringes, unable to speak, silenced and hidden in the shadows. Remember that each part of you wants to be seen, heard, named and honored.

I have found that simply noticing a voice (especially a shadowy voice that doesn’t seem to like me) diminishes its power over me.

What to do about it:

An excellent way to connect with and bring harmony to your inner tribe is to make a picture to represent each one. This can be done in the form of small collages, one for each voice – or you could do some scrap booking, giving each voice it’s own separate page. This is a great project for self exploration – and is easily done by going through magazines and pulling out images and words that speak to you about the individual selves. You may find that you begin to identify many more inner voices as you continue the practice of inner listening, and as you continue to go through magazines finding images that call to you..

Found at: KaleidoSoul a website that facilitates the making of “soul collages” bringing your inner voices out in the form of collaged cards.

Tracking The Moon
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.
