To Make Yourself Known to Another
If you love another and they don’t seem to notice, then this can bring you to their attention.
You need to find their footprints in the earth. You then dig up this footprint (more correctly, the earth in which it is impressed). Take the earth to the nearest willow tree and, making a hole in the ground at its base, put the footprint earth into the hole, filling it over with the original dirt. As you are burying the footprint this way, say:
“Many earths on earth there be, I make my love know unto thee.
For He is the flower and I the stem;
He the cock and I the hen.
Grow, grow willow tree! Sorrow not for the likes of me.”
From then on you will find that the person you yearn for will indeed start to notice you. Where it goes from there, of course, is up to you.
To Cure A Headache
Here are a few old Gypsy cures for a headache:
- Rub your forehead with a stone and then cover the stone with soil.
The ache is said to be absorbed by the soil.
- Alternatively, you can rub a headache away by rubbing a horseshoe on your forehead.
(A piece of iron is said to work just as well.)
- Yet another method is to lie down and place a quartz crystal on your pillow. If you can’t lie down, try holding a quartz to your head for a few minutes to relieve the discomfort.
- Rosemary oil dabbed on the temples and third eye will end most headaches.
Protection From Beyond
Romany spiritual traditions combine a dislike of disturbing the dead with a desire for the protective capacities cemetery dirt offers. Although one might not want to disturb one’s own ancestors or someone one knows, there’s no actual fear of the cemetery, thus an anonymous, unknown grave is chosen.
This spell harnesses abstract, protective qualities inherent in graveyard dirt to protect a child embarking on a long journey. Here’s how:
The parent takes a little dirt from any grave, balancing it on the back of the left hand. When the departing child isn’t looking, this dirt is tossed over his or her head to provide protection.
Gypsy Iron Protection Spell
This spell can be used to improve the health of an elderly person as well as to keep harm away from someone who is housebound.
Take a horseshoe or an iron nail and bless it by immersing it in salty water. Bury it in the garden of the sick person or in a potted plant. Leave the tip poking out of the earth, to act as a conductor to disperse the energy.
When you bury it, say:
Ill health I do tell,
Run through this iron.
(name of person) is free and well.
