Hecate rides a chariot drawn by dragons, symbolizing her dominion over the menstrual process. Other emblems include a broomstick, a flaming torch to light the way through dark passages, and a key that unlocks all doors, gates, and roads including the birth canal.
Petition Hecate for safe, smooth delivery prior to going into labor. In addition midwives may always request Hecate’s assistance, guidance, and protection. The same ritual spell serves laboring women and midwives alike.
- Put thirteen separated but unpeeled garlic cloves on a plate.
- Cover them with honey, lavender honey if at all possible. (You can also infuse plain honey with lavender blossoms.)
- Leave this at a crossroads, preferably at midnight, but at least after dark, either on the final day of any month or during the Dark Moon Phase.
- Murmur your prayers and petitions and go home, without looking back.
If you hear dogs or see them, especially black dogs or lone dogs unaccompanied by people, this is very auspicious (but should not be taken as an invitation to approach a strange dog, if caution suggests otherwise.) Hecate also sometimes manifests in the form of a black cat.
Note: This spell can be used for any project or idea that you are working to “birth” or “bring into the world.” Just be sure that it is something about which you care deeply.

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.

This spell is best performed outside in nature, in a secluded private place free from interruption. It can also be done indoors if an outdoor area is not possible. You will need your ritual items and/or items to represent the four elements, a crystal, and also some food and wine.
Cleanse your self and space before you begin the ritual. This could include a ritual bath, smudging, or any other method of cleansing that is comfortable for you.
Stand facing east and say:
”I call to the forces of air to watch over my rite and to offer assistance and protection and to protect me from harm.
Hail and welcome”
Bow your head and turn to face the south, say again:
”I call to the forces of fire to watch over my rite and to offer assistance and protection and to protect me from harm.
Hail and welcome”
Again bow your head and turn to the west repeating:
”I call to the forces of water to watch over my rite and to offer assistance and protection and to protect me from harm.
Hail and welcome”
After bow in reverence to the element turn north and say:
”I call to the forces of earth to watch over my rite and to offer assistance and protection and to protect me from harm.
Hail and welcome.”
If you use ritual tools, place them in their cardinal points. The wand in the east quarter, the dagger in the south, the cup to the west and the pentacle to the north.
Note: If you do not use ritual tools, use representations of the four elements. These can be actual elements, such as a bowl of water to represent water, a potted plant to represent earth, etc – or something else that is meaningful to you.
Above the wand (element of earth) trace the invoking pentagram of earth and say:
”I invoke the power of earth,
I invoke the power of Gaia.”
See the pentagram of earth being burned into the air glowing with a pure brilliant white. Feel the power in you rise, when you can feel the pentagram there move on to the dagger and repeat. Also repeat this with the cup and the pentacle – or with each of the elemental objects you have placed in the four directions.
Go to the center and see the pentagrams flaming and glowing about you. Stretch you arms above your head and look to the heavens and in a strong, clear voice with passion say:
”I invoke the power of my eternal spirit.
Invoke the power of Gaia”
At this point visualize white beams of light coming from the pentagrams surrounding you and meeting at the crown of your head. Feel the power root you to the earth let it flow throughout your whole being.
After this face the direction of earth, the north, and say again with feeling and heart:
”I come here today to celebrate and invoke the power of Gaia as she is reborn into the maiden. With her she brings new life, love and change. The wheel of the year turns yet again. I invoke you Gaia.”
Turn to the east and pick up your wand. Hold it in front of you and say:
”I invoke the airy nature of earth free flowing but still solid and strong.
I invoke you Gaia”
Again feel your power rise. Place the wand down and turn to the south. Hold your dagger high and say:
”I invoke the fiery nature of earth volatile and destructive.
I invoke you Gaia.”
Place the dagger down and turn west. Hold aloft the cup and say:
”I invoke the watery nature of earth, subtle, in movement and of power.
I invoke you Gaia”
Place the cup down and turn to the north. Pick up your pentacle and say:
”I invoke the true nature of earth, solid, dense, grounding, powerful.
I invoke you Gaia”
Stay facing north go back to the center and stand beneath the point where the pentacles have met up. Look upwards and say:
”I invoke the earth aspect of of my spirit.
I invoke you Gaia”
Pick up the crystal and hold it in front of you and say:
”This crystal is part of me, it comes from the earth.
I invoke you Gaia”
Now for the last invocation. The energies around you will be chaotic and rushing all aspects of earth represented feel them and then stabilize them and when you feel that this has been done say in a strong, loud and clear voice:
”Gaia your child speaks to thee. I ask for your help, guidance, power, and protection.You are nature. You are Divine. I celebrate you in all your forms. Gaia I invoke you come into me. This is my will and my power so mote it be.”
Repeat the invocation until you feel an immense force come from beneath you and enter into your being. A feeling of change and manifestation will take over you. DO NOT FIGHT IT. Also Gaia will give you a word of power which you can use in rites and spells. Once this word is spoken the invocation is over and you shall return to your normal state. Approach the food and wine and say:
”Now to eat and drink in celebration of the Mighty Mother.”
Once you have finished. Thank the elements and Gaia and close the circle as you usually would or in whatever way feels right. With the power given to you from Gaia, you may wish to charge some a crystal, amulet or talisman in honor of her.

Among the most famous miracle-working rabbis was Judah the Pious (1150-1217), author of the influential Book of Angels. Although many other rabbis are credited with miracle cures, usually their methods aren’t revealed – just vague tales of prayer and ritual. A legend, however, explicitly explains how Judah the Pious effected a cure and why it worked. Adapt to your own situation.
In the story, a woman who had previously borne children, now older (old enough to perform the ritual for their mother), wished to have another child but found herself unable to do so. She petitioned Judah the Pious for help.
His prescription? He had her children dig a grave for her and place her within it and pretend to mourn for her. Unknown to the woman, children, and other participants in the ritual, Judah had hired armed men to make a sudden show of attack. The children were so terrified that, forgetting their mother and the ritual, they immediately scattered and ran off, at least temporarily.
For that moment it was as if the woman didn’t exist, which caused the spirits, blocking her fertility, to mimic the children and scatter also, searching for other hosts.
The woman arose from her grave, fresh and reborn, and according to the legend, very quickly conceived.
Old Mother Goose, when
She wanted to wander,
Would ride through the air
On a very fine gander.
Today, Mother Goose is limited to the nursery, her rhymes intended to entertain only the youngest, least sophisticated children, yet MotherGoose’s namesake bird links her to a host of powerful spirits: Aphrodite, too, rides through the air on a goose. The bird is sacred to Egyptian Hathor and Roman Juno, both valiant protectors and advocates for women.
In the Middle Ages, the once sacred goose became associated with witchcraft and disreputable women. Attempts to discredit Lilith and the Queen of Sheba depict them as dangerously beautiful, seductive women, with one goose’s foot peeping from beneath a skirt.
Interestingly, the recent backlash against “nursery rhymes” being taught to our children has a lot to do with the content of the rhymes; if you’ve never read them as an adult, you may not realize just what they actually “say.” In fact, most of the “nursery rhymes” were not originally intended for children!
Why is Mother Goose never portrayed as a plump Grandmotherly type bouncing a grandbaby on her knee? Why always an elderly hag? Gasp! Could Mother Goose be the prototype of the stereotypical “witch”?
Witches were the keepers of knowledge for the common folk– it was she who nursed the sick babe as well as birthed calves or treated illnesses. She was a “wise woman”. She was a valued member of her community; but, as in any human endeavor, she was not infallible. It was when things went wrong that this woman – often old with no close family ties – was accused of heinous acts. (We are all human and tend to blame others for our misfortune. In today’s society we hire a lawyer and go for blood… in earlier times… they just went for blood.)
One thing is certain… if “she” were one individual, she was passing down oral history, lore and adages… from people of other eras. In the early days, before they were “collected” into the somewhat familiar form of today; these rhymes were actually methods of preserving history, customs, lore and fears for the common man. (We need to recall that the majority of people in the earlier centuries could neither read or write. That is why roving troubadours, bards and minstrels were so popular.)
Here is a short grimoire of Mother Goose spells, charms, chants, and divinations, taken from the 1916 edition of “The Real Mother Goose.”

The fair maid who, the first of May,
Goes to the fields at break of day,
And washes in dew from the hawthorn-tree
Will ever after handsome be.

Rain, rain, go away,
Come again another day;
Little Johnny wants to play.
Bridal Protection Spell
Something old, something new
Something borrowed, something blue
And a sixpence in her shoe!
Bee Omens and Luck
A swarm of bees in May
Is worth a load of hay;
A swarm of bees in June
Is worth a silver spoon;
A swarm of bees in July
Is not worth a fly.
Storm Prediction Lore

The storms grow stronger.

Is the way to be healthy
And wealthy and wise.
To Stay Young
Tommy’s tears and Mary’s fears
Will make them old before their years.
Monday’s child is fair of face,
Tuesday’s child is full of grace,
Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
Thursday’s child has far to go,
Friday’s child is loving and giving,
Saturday’s child works hard for its living,
But the child that’s born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.
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.
