The Witches Magick for the Sixth Day of the Storm Moon – Creating A Dream Crystal


Egyptian Comments & Graphics

CREATING A DREAM CRYSTAL

 

Dreams provide a great way for influencing your waking world, in particular your magical patterns and spells. By creating a dream crystal, you can use the power of the crystal while dreaming and awake to bridge the gap between your waking and dream worlds. This gives it double the power , making it an invaluable magical tool.

To perform this spell, you will need a white candle, a smudge stick, and a clear quartz crystal.

Begin by lighting the candle and dedicating it to a helpful goddess or god. Light the smudge stick in the candle flame, and blow on it until it begins to smoke. Be sure to catch any hot ashes in a fireproof dish or pan. Carefully hold the crystal above the smudge stick so that the stone becomes immersed in the smoke. Keep it there until it feels cleared of all energies.

Place the crystal in front of the lit candle, and get comfortable while beginning to examine every aspect of the crystal. Look at the way the light shimmers off the crystal’s various facets and inner inclusions. Pick up the crystal with your hands and turn it around, looking at each of its sides. Make a mental note of what it feels like, for example, its hardness, whether it’s smooth or rough. Next, close your eyes and visualize the crystal. Open your eyes and look at the crystal again before again closing your eyes and imagining the crystal with vivid detail. Continue doing this until the image of the crystal is firmly fixed in your mind’s eye.

As you lie down to go to sleep , hold the crystal in your receiving hand (left hand if you are right-handed, right hand if you are left-handed). Imagine the crystal shining clearly in your mind. Repeat the following mantra:

This is my magical dream crystal

Wherever I go in dream, it is always with me.

As you move into the dream world, take the crystal with you. Whenever you look down at your hands while you are dreaming, your dream crystal will be there, filling you with its magical energy. Also, when you see your crystal in your dreams, you will know you are dreaming. This is a simple way to learn lucid dreaming , which is being aware of the fact that you are dreaming when you are dreaming.

Magickal Activity for Sacrifice to the 7 Stars Day – The Willow Wand


Unicorn Comments & Graphics

The Willow Wand

 

To make the wand: Cut a small branch from a Willow tree. Clean and sand the branch until it is smooth. Use silver paint to inscribe your name in a spiral pattern around the branch.

Use a smudge stick to consecrate your wand. Light the smudge, and pass the wand through its fragrant smoke. This will remove any negative thoughts or vibrations that might have been attached to the branch before you acquired it.

Once the branch has been cleansed you will need to bless it in Callisto’s honor. Place the wand on your altar or on a small table. Hold both of your hands over the wand and speak the following prayer:

“Goddess of the Moon grant to me,
The Willows power of flexibility.
Through your love I shall be warmed
And from this moment be transformed.”

When you feel the need to be more flexible and accommodating, hold your want and repeat the prayer.

The Witches Magick for December 19th – PURIFICATION OF SELF SPELL

PURIFICATION OF SELF SPELL

The purification of self is a way to remove the accumulation of all negative things that happened during the day and to prepare for the work to come. Before ritual work, you have
to change your frame of mind from the everyday mundane
world. Here are a couple of ways to do this.


Incense:
You may use incense in the common stick form or in what is called a smudge stick. This is a small bundle of incense. The incense is lit and is passed around the body, but not too close to the hair (fire hazard). As you pass the incense around your body, concentrate on the smoke passing through you. Invision all the negativity and the excess baggage of the day leaving you as the smoke rises around you. When you feel cleansed, put out the incense. You will need a container to put out the smudge stick. A terra cotta saucer filled with sand is ideal.


Ritual Baths:
A ritual bath is a great way to shed the day and concentrate on the ritual to come.
Supplies:
–White candles, for Spirituality and Higher Self, Salt, Herb or Herbs for Purification, Candle Snuffer.
Run a bath of very warm water. As the water is running light the white candles. Use as many as you wish. Three is an appropriate number as it represents the three aspects of the Goddess. As you light a candle think or recite aloud: “I light this candle in truth and peace”.
Repeat with each candle.
While the water is running, add a small amount of salt into the water, then add the herb or herbs of your choice. Step into the water and slowly sink down into the tub. Relax and feel the water covering your body. Let the day and all negativity be drawn into the water. Concentrate on letting go and moving to the positive. Wash slowly. Turn the bath into its own ritual. Think or say aloud :
” All negativity is flowing out of me into the water. I am pure for the work to come.”
Dry yourself slowly, deliberately. As you snuff out the candles, think or say aloud: “I leave this bath in truth and peace.” You are now ready for the ritual to come.

Let’s Get Crafty – Making a Smudging Stick

Making a Smudging Stick

Be aware of any dangerous chemical reactions or allergies to the plants being used. If you intend to burn a plant in a smudge stick do your research into the plant first to ensure that what you are burning is not dangerous to your health. Always find out if you are allergic first, and have another person on hand or ready to help you if something goes wrong. Call 911 or the appropriate telephone number if a dangerous condition occurs.

Always be careful of how you burn your smudge stick, ensuring that you do not burn yourself. Always use proper fire preventative measures; place burning objects within or upon the appropriate fire burning apparatus. Be aware that holding the smudge stick within your hands can result in burning your hands.

When wrapping the bundle, you should be careful to wrap tightly enough to hold the stems and leaves in place, but not to cut them.

Humidity is a factor in dry time, ensure that your bundle has dried fully before attempting to burn it.

Ensure that there is no mold/mildew growth upon your bundle before burning it.

~Ingredients~

  • Herb(s) appropriate for the smudging
  • String that will safely burn, such as jute line or cotton string

~Process~

  1. Select your fresh herb from the plant (unless you can get long stems of plants elsewhere).
  2. Cut the plant according to size. Plants which are more leafy should be cut in smaller sections, and those that are less leafy can be cut in larger sections.
  3. Cut the string to a good length, such as five to six feet.
  4. Place the pieces according to like, stems to stems and leafs to leafs.
  5. Wrap string around the base, leaving a few inches of string loose.
  6. Wrap up from stems to leafs, then back again in a crisscross pattern.
  7. After returning to the base, tie the few inches from before to the end of your string.
  8. Trim if necessary to give a uniform look.
  9. Place your bundle in a place where it shall dry.

Lady A’s Spell for May 6th – Garden Blessing (Perfect for this time of year)

Fantasy Comments & Graphics


Garden Blessing

Goal: To bless a magickal or mundane garden

Optional extras:

Green or brown candle;

pot of soil (if you can’t be outside);

packet of seeds or flowering plant/herb;

picture of your ideal garden or your garden plan;

sage smudge stick;

salt;

water

Notes: This can be done inside with the above extras prior to the gardening season, or it can be done outside with just the sage and the salt and water (mixed). If you are inside, visualize the garden and go through the symbolic act of planting something. If you are outside, you can walk the perimeter of your garden space, wafting the sage and sprinkling the salt/water around the edges of the area you want to bless (be careful not to use too much salt, since it can damage plants). You can say the spell as you are doing this, before, or after.

This spell is best done on a sunny day.

“Green and growing, full of life
Bless this garden mine
A calm oasis free from strife
Touched by gifts divine.”
 
“Let this garden grow and thrive
Be free of weed or pest
Through seasons changing and alive
Like nature’s treasure chest.”
 
“Whether herb or fruit or flower
Let plants and seedlings grow
Strong and healthy, filled with power
Beneath the sun’s bright glow.”
