A Balm to Soothe Emotions

A Balm to Soothe Emotions

This spell uses the principle of sympathy for its foundation.
By administering the balm to the instrument of injury, people believed the wound would heal faster.
Find an object that symbolizes the issue central to your anger.
The item should be something that you don’t mind leaving covered with cream.
Also, go to your medicine cabinet and find some first aid ointment or any salve that heals wounds.
Light a white candle (for peace) and place both the cream and the token in front of you.
Slowly consider all the reasons for your anger.
Let that energy pour outward into the chosen symbol until, in your mind’s eye,
it radiates a red light from your fury. By this point you should feel calmer too.
Next take enough cream in both palms to cover the emblem.
As you apply cream to the emblem, say,
“As balm to this figure, so also to my heart.
Where animosity has grown, healing now impart.”
Repeat this thirteen times while massaging the cream into the object.
Place this in a safe place so peace may grow undisturbed.
For dispersing negative tempers, restoring calm and equilibrium, forgiveness. Timing –
Waning moons, dawn. Moon in Gemini or Aries.
The months of February and August. Monday (healing) or Tuesday (to encourage logic).

Chant of Protection

Chant of Protection

Goddess, Give me protection from the outside world,
Let whatever people say about me not hurt,
Let whatever I fear not bother me,
Let all the mixed up feelings inside be released without harm,
Goddess, you see my pain,
I am thy child, I am thy soul,
I need a dream to cast away this pain,
Something to soothe my soul,
Give me protection from the outside world.

Clarity of Thought and Mind

Clarity of Thought and Mind

Make or buy a small cotton draw-string bag about 1-2 inches deep.
Put in equal parts of each of the following:
Rosemary Lavender Camomile Quartz
During the Full Moon, put the bag together, then consecrate and charge it.
Inhale the scents when you feel stressed or overwhelmed.
These herbs will act to soothe you if you are feeling stressed or frazzled and will help
you focus your mind to deal with the problem at hand.

Confidence Spell

Confidence Spell

Buy or make a charm that resembles a lions head.
Pass it three times through the flame of a yellow candle, meditating on your esteem and the
respect you deserve. Infuse then the charm with your energy by anointing with essential oil of
rose, orange or hazel. Wear it on a chain, band, or in your pocket. Whenever you touch it,
feel the confidence building within you.

Cutting The Cord Spell

Cutting The Cord Spell

When one has been involved (either Emotionally, Physically or Spiritually) with another
person it can create an ‘Etheric Link’ that resemblesa red cord binding between you.
When the friendship or relationship ends it is often difficult to move on, as you are still
linked to this person. The Cutting of the Cord Spell is ideal in dissolving the bonds
between people allowing them to move on.
You Will Need:
–2 Red Candles, Length of Red Cord
–A photograph of you and your friend or ex (or a picture to represent you both drawn)
–A pair of scissors.
Preparation: Bathe & Cleanse yourself before starting, set out materials, and
Cast a Basic Magickal Circle.
The Spell
Mark the first Candle with your name and the second Candle with the other person’s name.
Charge the Candles with Anointing Oil, starting from the center moving
outwards (sending energy out), seeing the person named on the Candle as you anoint it.
Take the first Candle in your hand hold it over your Altar Candle visualizing it
being Charged with energy to do your bidding, then present the Candle to the Altar saying:
As the Goddess gave form and substance to our spirits,
I give form and substance to this candle,
As She named us Her children,
I name this Candle as (insert name).
As this Candle is wax and wick,
So it is also flesh and blood, So Mote it be!
Repeat with second Candle.
Sit in meditation and think of the joy this person brought you, picture your favorite memory.
Visualize the link between your hearts as a thick red cord joining you from heart Chakra to heart Chakra.
Tie an end of the cord to each candle, joining you together, as you are joined in spirit.
Place the photo or picture over the center of the cord saying:
As the Goddess links us in Spirit, I link these forms together,
As above, so below, As within, so without!
Again sit in meditation, and think of the reasons you want to cut all ties to this
person, think about the events that have lead up to this decision. Face any doubts
that you may have and see them for what they are, fear. Know in your heart that the
Goddess wants only the best for you and She wants you to want the best for yourself.
When you are ready visualize yourself telling the other that it is over and that
you are moving on, then see yourself turn and walk away – not looking back!
Cut through the Cord that binds you to each other (as well as through the
picture symbolizing your togetherness) and say:
By my free will, with harm to none,
I sever the cord that binds me to (insert name),
As we once chose to share the road we walked,
Now we choose to walk a different path,
Although we still journey to the same destination,
No longer do our steps move in time you are no longer my friend (or
lover), I release the (insert name) from all ties to me
As I am released from thee, As I do will, so mote it be!
Take the candle, 1/2 the cord and 1/2 the picture (the part representing your ex)
in a heatproof bowl, tip a little ‘goodwill incense’ over it all, with a little mentholated spirits,
then as you light it say:
As this smoke rises and drifts away,
So do all my bonds to you… So mote it be!
Place ‘your’ candle on your Altar to burn when you find yourself wishing ‘what if’.
Clean up and Close Circle, then bury everything else except your candle.

Depression Healing Ritual

Depression Healing Ritual

Go outside during the daytime and find yourself a large tree.
Oak is the best choice, but any large tree will do.
(Deciduous trees are better than evergreens for some reason; go figure!)
Place the palm of your projective hand (right if right handed,
left if left handed) upon the trunk of the tree and say something like this to the tree:
“Blessed tree, my brother (or sister) of wood, I am in great need of your healing.
I feel hollow inside, as my depression
grips at my very heart. I ask that you aid me, assist me in healing myself of this.
Please assist me to feel strong and solid
inside, assist me in being happy again.”
Now, sit down facing the sun and lean your back against the trunk of the tree.
As you become more relaxed, feel yourself melt into the trunk, becoming one with the tree.
Feel that you have become a branch, full of leafy foliage.
Feel the Sun beat down upon you. Drink in the Light of the Sun God.
Feel His Love fill you, pushing your sadness into the tree.
Fill yourself with the energy of the sun, and allow this to pass through you into the tree as well.
You are now part of the tree; you are the tree.
Feel the overwhelming Wisdom locked into your wood, your leaves.
Feel all that it is to be a tree.
Now, slowly, feel yourself separate from the tree, becoming human again.
Lean forward, and stand. Face the tree, and thank it. If you feel like it, give it a hug!
You and the tree are now one; you are the tree, and the tree is now you.
Love the tree, and care for it. The better the tree is cared for, the happier you will be in the long run!
And become one with the tree as often as you need to by performing the above ritual and enjoy!
If you ever need to move far from the tree, explain this to it, and give it back the woody feeling
inside, and it will give you back the human feeling it has.
When you move, find a new tree. Also, if you can, whoever moves into the place you
were in, if at all possible, ask them to take special care of this tree because it has meaning to you.

‘THINK on THESE THINGS’ for March 10th

By Joyce Sequichie Hifler

Leave yourself a choice. It is a sorry state of affairs when a person’s life becomes so regimented that it is impossible to make even one change in plans. There is a story about a gentleman who kept a record in minute detail of his living and every cent he earned so that he could make a trip abroad. The record keeping became such an obsession that when he could make the trip he took along crackers to keep from eating in the dining room aboard ship. The journey was nearly over before he discovered the price of his meals was included in the fare.

How much do we miss by refusing to accept the bounty of choices? “If only” and “I wish” are so over used. We bind ourselves daily by refusing to recognize the volume of opportunities open to each of us. All of life is not free, but there is much available for our personal selection.

Dr. William S. Sadler wrote of a woman who was so orderly and systematic in her living that she inquired of her minister how to go about dying since she had never done it before. Living in a systematic world is possible, but there are limits to what we can prepare for and about which to be orderly. Daily we meet and settle many small emergencies, and some not so small. And it is our developed ability to meet these things successfully and on the spur of the moment that makes a well-rounded individual.

But the steady, uniform methods of doing things do not necessarily mean a person is ready to meet every situation in life. In fact, such living often makes change practically impossible when change is sorely needed.

Order is heaven’s first law. But order means first things first. A place for everything and everything in its place. Then, if we’ve learned how to live, we never have to worry about the art of dying gracefully.

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – March 10

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – March 10

“I know Grandpa told me that to smoke is Wakan (holy). The smoke you inhale represents the spirits of everything you put into the pipe. When you breather in the smoke, you are asking to become one with everything or to become whole.”

–Dr. A.C. Ross (Enhanamani), LAKOTA

The smoke allows us to go from the Seen World to the Spirit World. It is in the Spirit World where we are all connected. In this way, we can become one with all things. Our pipe is sacred. We need to be respectful of our medicine. When we smoke the pipe, we need to have good thoughts because these thoughts are shared with the Spirit World. The pipe, the smoke, the spirits, our thoughts-these things are Wakan.

Great Spirit, today, let my thoughts be Wakan.


March 10 – Daily Feast

March 10 – Daily Feast

The more stress we have the less we like other people – and ourselves. A little pressure is sufficient. Stress can be productive if it is something we like doing. But when we can no longer ka no gi a, enjoy and sing about life, we need to reevaluate the direction we are going. It is impossible to withdraw from every problem, but neither can we go on without some relief. Being responsible is a natural part of life – very necessary to living well and being contented. To find a happy medium is to center ourselves where peace and answers can be found. It does not come from the noise and complaints of the world – but from that secret place of harmony and strength within the heart. It is a place that must be added to and kept harmonious, for it gives us poise and renewal when we need it.

~ Once you have heard the meadowlark and caught the scent of fresh-plowed earth, peace cannot escape you. ~

Daily Motivator for March 10th – Uniquely beautiful

Uniquely beautiful

Stop waiting or wishing or begging or hoping for someone or something to give you what you want. Your fulfillment is yours to create right now.

No one can give you what you truly desire. Because what you truly desire is to make a real and meaningful difference in your own unique way.

To fill your life with meaningful rewards, fill your time with purposeful activity. The quality of your life is based on the quality of your moments.

When you waste your time with emptiness or negativity, you’re cheating yourself. Remind yourself what an enormous opportunity you have in each and every moment, and put those opportunities to good use.

This day, with all its problems, frustrations and disappointments, is nonetheless a great and magnificent treasure. It is filled with positive possibilities, and you are here to choose and to fulfill the best of them.

Have the courage to see and to acknowledge just how uniquely beautiful you are. And have the courage to fully live that beauty for all the world to see.

— Ralph Marston

Precious Pup of the Day for March 10th

Lucie, the Dog of the Day
Name: Lucie
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female Breed: Shiba Inu, Jack Russell mix
Home: Smithtown, New York, USA
Lucie is a very energetic and lovable dog, although she thinks of herself as more of a human. She frequently sits on the couch like us and will try to get into chairs., too. She wants to be part of everything we do, as you could probably guess! She was rescued from a puppy mill in Tennessee in April 2009. She was named after the character, Lucie, from the novel, A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. When some people see her they think she’s still a puppy, but she is full grown – as much as she’ll ever get – at two years old. She is extremely protective of her family, even though if someone ever was to break in, she would run away and hide. Her biggest fear is the fire alarm beeping when steam gets too near it. Lucie is the cutest and most playful dog I have ever known.
