Gather certain fallen twigs;
One of hazel, one of oak,
One of elm, and one of willow;
Hold them to the fire’s smoke,
Say this softly, seven times all:
Turner be turned,
Burner be burned:
Let only good
Come out of this wood.
Spit on each and break it small
Cast them in the fire’s mouth –
The curse will die with the fire’s death.
These are especially good measures to take when moving into a new place, beginning ritual activities in a new space, or to release bad feelings and negativity when an inhabitant has been sick or has died.
To cleanse a single room:
- On top of a newspaper, set a blue candle.
- Surround with a circle of salt.
- Burn a little sage in the room.
- Light the candle, making sure it won’t tip over.
- Close the door and let the candle burn down.
- When finished, take newspaper, salt, and candle
- Leave the room and bury far from your home.
To cleanse a house:
- Sprinkle a little salt at each doorway and window.
- Burn sage in each room, paying special attention to windows and doors.
Cleansing with herbs:
Strew fragrant herbs (rosemary, basil, lavender, others you especially like). Sweep them up with the salt. Cast the swept herbs out your front door. Sweep them off your porch so they won’t get tracked back in.
Candles in the corners:
Select four corners. Set four candles – one in each corner, allow them to burn down.
- North – black
- East – white
- South – purple or dark red
- West – blue
An inscription to be written on a windowpane:
Where it is born,
But Sun flies
To light this room.
Jelly beans can be used in the following house clearing ritual:
Begin by placing a small pile of jelly beans in a large bowl close to the front door, but cover the top of it with a lid, a plate, or something similar. Now, clean the house. Sweep, dust, vacuum, and put away the clutter. As you do this, call and invite all the little gremlins, goblins, ghosts, and disruptive spirits to come to the feast you have planned for them. It might go something like this:
Come one come all…
I have a nice sweet feast planned just for you…
soon it will begin… come and see…
As soon as the house is cleaned, take the lid off the bowl of jelly beans, and call all the little disruptive spirits to a sweet feast. As you call them, tell them to hurry up. Give them a minute or two to come to the bowl, and then encourage them to jump in.
Jump in jump in It’s a nice sweet treat…
jump in jump in before another gets your seat.
Visualize all the little spirits jumping into the bowl. When you have a sense that they’re all in. Pop the lid on and rush outside with the bowl of beans.. Now, you can run with it as far away from the house as is practical, or you can take them for a “fun little ride.”
If you opt for the ride, be very careful to have the bowl of jelly beans completely sealed so one can get out and infect your vehicle.
The best place to take the jellybeans and collected spirits, is a crossroads or graveyard. If that is the case, you can simply pour them out and take your leave. They will be happy there. If you leave them somewhere that they might make problems for others, you can encircle the pile of jelly beans with a thin line of salt and cayenne pepper to contain them.
When the ritual is finished, quickly go back to your house. Seal your front door with a thin line of salt. Right away, wash the bowl and the lid with warm soapy water.
Enjoy the cleared energy in your home!
Spell by Madame Fortuna
This spell is for those damaged souls who have been through the mill in love. They have failed, and they have failed miserably. They are not even willing to take another chance on love because they feel crippled underneath the baggage they are already carrying. This spell combines a bit of wisdom and a bit of hope and a heap of renewal energy. This spell may be performed only on the new moon. You can perform this spell on yourself or for that dismal friend of yours with his/her consent before you try to fix him/her up with a blind date.
You will need:
- Shot of rum
- An egg
- Teaspoon of sugar
- Spritz of Lemon Juice
Heat up the milk, add a shot of rum (or imitation rum flavoring), crack an egg, and stir it in (minus the shell). Add a teaspoon of sugar and a spritz of lemon juice. Take off the stove before it reaches a boil and guzzle it down quickly. Lemon heals, neutralizes, and repels negative energy , situations, and hopelessness. Milk is loving and nurturing, cures depression, and alleviates fear. Rum clears the way and brings insight, eggs are for rebirth, and the sugar will sweeten the new path of love that awaits you.
We all get a bit of negative energy in us from time to time. Be it stress, or an empath receiving someone else’s trouble. This technique will help you rid yourself of these emotions and energy and bring you to a calmer state of mind.
You can do this in private, or anywhere where you can take a moment to breathe in a time of need.
Close your eyes and imagine the negative feelings as a a black ball. See it before you. With each breath out, watch the ball turn white. With each breath out, feel your self get calmer. Continue this until the ball is completely white.
Once it is totally white, watch this ball leave your sight. Feel your negative energy go with it, and breathe in the new calming sensation.

War Water causes hexes but it also repels and removes them. Here’s a simple way to use it:
Add War Water to your bathwater. Light a white candle. As you soak, focus on the idea that the water is cleansing you and forming a protective barrier that no negative energy can penetrate. When you finish with the bath, visualize any negative energy that might have been attached to you, flowing down the drain. Dry yourself with a white towel.
War Water is not difficult to make, here’s a link to a simple recipe: War Water
by Madame Fortuna
- 1 amethyst cluster
- 2 crystal points
- 1 bag of sea salt
- Black bag
- Black votive candle in candle holder and matches
- Candy or something sweet to eat
You can make a new start any time, but some times are better than others. When the moon is new, she lends her energy to new beginnings.
The first month of the New Year is also a wonderful time to have a new beginning. The New Year is a strong and special time to wipe the slate clean. You can release all the old negativity. Get rid of old grudges and grievances.
Doing the ritual within twenty days of your birthday is also a powerful time. The time of each person’s birth has special power for that person. Now is the time for your happiness. Now is the time for you to have more love. Now is the time for you to have more abundance. Now is the time for you to have more luck.
Now is the time for YOU!
Getting Ready For The Ritual
To clean the amethyst cluster and quartz crystal points, boil 3 cups of water. Add 1 teaspoon of sea salt. When the water is cool, pour it over the amethyst cluster and crystal points. Let the cluster and points dry in sunlight. If you can’t put them outside you can place them in a window where the sun will shine on them.
To give extra strength to the ritual clean your home before doing the ritual. As you clean think that you are “sweeping out the old negativity”. Bathe with strawberry soap or bath gel. Dress in dark colored clothes.
Place the amethyst cluster, quartz crystal points, sea salt, candle and holder, matches, bag and the sweet in a basket or bag and carry them in your right hand to the room where you spend the most time in your home. This can be the living room, den, kitchen, bedroom or any other room that you use most often. Take the items out of the basket with your left hand and place them on a table that you have already cleared and cleaned.
As you light the candle say:
I light the fire that burns the old
This fire burns away past regrets
This fire burns away past hurts
Take a pinch of sea salt in your right hand and toss it over your left shoulder and say:
With this salt I banish negativity
With this salt I refuse old hurts
With this salt I get rid of sorrow
Take the amethyst cluster in your left hand and say:
The power of abundance flows to me
Health, love and protection flow to me
I feel the power of abundance in me
Take both of the quartz crystal points in your left hand and say:
I hold all I need in my hand
The River of abundance is in my hand
Health, love and protection is in my hand
Eat the candy or sweet and say:
Only the sweet flows in my life
Only the good flows in my life
Only the best flows in my life
Let the candle burn out. Place the amethyst cluster where you will see it often. Put 1 crystal quartz point in the most southern corner of the room, with point pointing to the south. Put the other point in the bag and keep it with you or put it somewhere safe.
Now begin that wonderful life you deserve! This ritual may be repeated every 3 months to reinforce the good flow. Enjoy your new life!

- 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.

Aquamarine evokes the purity of crystalline waters, and the exhilaration and relaxation of the sea. It is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go. Hold an aquamarine in your hand and chant:
Carry away my troubles with the sea
Bring serenity to me.
Hold on to the stone tightly and let your sorrows wash into the stone and away from you. Do this three days in a row, and then cleanse the stone in a river, a large body of water, or a steady stream of water from a natural source such as a spring or well.
