Written Spells

Written Spells

by Skye Alexander

In earlier times, written spells were the province of a few wise men and women who were more literate than the majority of the populace. In many cultures, the written word was revered as a gift of the gods, especially among the Egyptians and Greeks. For this reason, written spells came to be considered more potent than verbal ones.

One of the oldest and best-known written spells is the word Abracadabra, customarily used to banish sickness. In ancient Chaldean texts, Abracadabra translates as “to perish like the word.” The letters in Abracadabra were written in the form of a descending triangle on parchment, which was then laid on the inflicted body part. Then the paper was removed and stuck in the cleft of a tree. As time and the elements destroyed the paper, the magick would begin to work. This whole process is an example of magickal symbolism, sympathy, and similars — the word disappears into nothingness; the paper disappears into nothingness; and, therefore, the disease or illness takes the hint and follows suit.

When you write with a pen or pencil, you activate the acupressure points in the thumb and fingertips. These points induce relaxation and strengthen the connection to the subconscious mind. Thus, writing contributes to the power of a spell because it helps to center your mind and engages your imagination.

Written words, affirmations, incantations, and sigils are often included in contemporary spells. A written intention might be slipped into a talisman or amulet. Spells are sometimes written on paper, then burned to release the intention into the universe. Witches might write a spell a set number of times — the number corresponds to the spell’s objective (e.g., six times for joint endeavors, eight times to attract financial security). The color of the ink, the shape of the paper, even the addition of aromatics to the ink or paper may contribute to the overall effect of the spell.

Why go through all this fuss? Because witches believe that the more dimensions magick has (with sensual dimensions being especially significant), the better the results will be.

“As I bind my illness into thee,

Hoodoo Candle Magic

Hoodoo Candle Magic

Guest Author – Elizabeth Bissette

 

A Few Kinds of Candles and Their Uses

Figure Candles

1. Skull: Meditation on death, luck gambling

2. Nude Male/Female: White = attract someone, pink or red = love spells

3. Black Cat: luck gambling

4. 7 Knob Wishing Candle: A wish a day for seven days or to make a wish 7x as strong. White = healing, Green = money, Black = malevolence, red = love

You can make one by taking 7 pins and sticking them through a large candle ot make 7 sections. Write your wish(es) on a piece of paper then turn it 90 degrees sideways. Write your full name over the wish(es) or wishes 7x, writing each over the other cross-wise.

Put the paper under the candle afer anointing it with an appropriate oil. Burn it for 7 nights, pinching it out each time a needle falls. Save the needles. When the last one falls, stick them in the paper in 2 X’s around a double-cross (2 lines crossing one upright line).

Bury the paper and leftover wax under your doorstep if you want to attract something or someone to you. Throw the paper and wax away at a crossroads, in running water, or in a graveyard if you want to get rid of something or someone.

If you buy a 7 knob candle, carve your wish into each knob or the same wish 7x. Anoint with appropriate oil, pinch out after each knob burns.

Colors in candle magic

White: healing, rest

Blue: peace, harmony, joy

Green: money, luck gambling, business

Yellow: devotion, happiness, attraction

Red: love, passion, strength

Pink: attraction, romance

Purple: power, control

Orange: taking things in a different direction, precognitive dreams

Brown: court, neutrality

Black: to repel things, particularly evil

Double Action candles:

Red and black: to remove a love-jinx  White and black: to return evil  Green and black: to remove a money-jinx

Burning Double Action candles:

Cut off the tip and cut a new tip on the black half so that it will burn off first. Carve the name of your enemy backwards on the black half and your name forwards on the other half. Anoint with appropriate oil to repel what you don’t want on the black end, rubbing it away from yourself. Anoint the other end with an appropriate oil to attract what you want and rub it towards yourself. To strengthen the spell, burn the candle on a flat mirror.

Reversing candles are similar, but have a red inner layer and black outer layer. They reverse ill will and uncross crossed situations. Do the same things when burning them as with the above, but all inscriptions on them should be done backwards.

Novena Candles

These candles, decorated with figures of saints, are burned for 9 days. The choice of candle/Saint depends on the result desired.

More about Hoodoo candle magic:

1. Candles are not only anointed with oil, but are sometimes rolled in herbs or sprinkled with powders.

2. To attract light the candle when both clock hands are rising, in the second half of the between six and twelve; to repel light the candle when both hands on the clock are falling, in the first half of the hours from twelve to six.

3. Fortunes are often told from the patterns the wax makes on glass encased candles.
