The Truth About Prosperity Spells

I get emails like this, daily: “Rose, HELP! I’m in serious debt… can you give me a money spell that can help?”

Most people who send emails like this are looking for an easy way out. If you could sit down, light a few candles, say a chant, and attract a surge of prosperity… everyone would be financially independent.

Magick doesn’t work that way, despite what many people will try to tell you. (Especially if they are trying to sell you something.)

Here’s how Magick can work for prosperity: if you work a prosperity spell properly, it helps focus your mind and spirit on your goal… helps you to really believe your desire is possible… and gives you the confidence to go after it. Many of these changes occur on a subconscious level… and it may seem like any prosperity just “happened”. The reality is, it’s all you.

Now that you understand the truth about how, and why prosperity spells can work… here’s one of my favorite’s you can try on your own whenever you wish.

It blends the mystical beliefs of 2 ancient cultures to create prosperity energy. Combine this energy with your desire, focus, and emotion… and you can achieve whatever you wish.

Sunday’s Spells

 

Finally, it’s Sunday, the official day of rest. Not only do Christians acknowledge this day, but I’m sure many pagans appreciate this day, as well. Everyone needs rest and a lot of people need a good day to worship their creator(whomever or whatever that may be), however they deem fit to do so. With the Sun being the central theme of many ancient rituals, Sunday just seems to fit, in name and theory. Not only is it a good day to worship, it seems good to do more relaxed spells, such as sleep, dream, and rebirth.

 

A Spell for While you Sleep

You will need the following items for this spell:

Four lengths of appropriately coloured ribbon
which can be easily tied
Four pins
Your bed

Knot magic has a particular effect in ‘binding’ or fixing a spell in place and with the addition of colour it is possible to use ribbons to bring about a desired outcome. By using your own bed as a focus, your magical work can be done while you sleep. This is a very personal way of working and one which can bring particularly positive results.

If your bed has bedposts, simply knot a length of the correct colour ribbon for your purpose around each post.

Each time you do this, say:

With this knot of coloured ribbon

Bring to me the power hidden. Grant me that right Throughout this night.

If your bed has no posts then carefully pin the knotted ribbon to each corner using the same words.
Each night for two further nights touch each ribbon knot in turn and repeat the words above.

Leave the ribbons in place until you no longer feel the need for them. You can expect to have some fairly vivid dreams over the following three nights, which may help you to develop the qualities you seek. This spell allows your unconscious self to work in a protected space without the chatter of day to day matters.

 

To Protect a Sleeping Mind

You will need the following items for this spell:

Voice

Sleep is the time of dreams and visits. The following incantation repeated aloud at one’s bedtime will aid in the discouraging of unwanted visitors in the dreaming mind.

Before retiring for the night, repeat the following incantation aloud:

”Spirits of the night, I beseech thee,

Find favor with mine call and plea,

Draw close and circle round

Mine mind I clear and lend to sleep.

That sleep will use to rest the weary world

Let not the world and those unfavorable things within it

Visit upon mine mind unheralded

Uninvited visitors be sent away

Turned back

Turned back to the dark depths

Turned back to the sender whose name is never spoken

That thus he may gain strength

Gain strength and threaten those unable

Unable or unknowing

Unknowing or innocent

Innocents in the world

Sleeping as I sleep

Spirits of the night, I beseech thee,

Find favor with mine call and plea

Find favor and protect mine mind

Find favor and protect the innocents”.

This is best repeated nightly so as to protect ones mind and allow peaceful sleep and promote quiet dreams.

 

To Drive Away Bad Dreams

You will need the following items for this spell:

Bowl of warm water
Salt
Your chosen sprigs of herbs
String

This spell uses herbal magick and correspondences to clear the bedroom of negative influence. It is often a good idea to use material that is easily available, so you might use sprigs of rosemary, sage, Lady’s bedstraw, maize silks or broom-corn. Since you want something taken away you should perform this magical working as the Moon wanes.

Dissolve the salt in the warm water.

Tie the herbs together.

Dip the sprigs in the water and sprinkle the corners of the room with the water.

Use the sprigs to sprinkle the salt water on your bedclothes, and particularly round the head and foot of the bed.

When you have done this, place the herbs under your pillow, or if you prefer, under the middle of the bed.

The next morning, discard the herbs at a crossroads if you can, either by burying them or allowing them to disperse to the four winds. Otherwise ensure that you have carried them well away from your home.
This carries all negativity away from your bedroom and bed. This spell uses rosemary which brings clarity, sage for wisdom, ladies bedstraw which is said to have lined the manger at Christs birth, and broom corn, which is used in worship of the Mexican goddess Chicomecohuatl. All these herbs bring cleansing, not just of the room but also of the occupants aura or subtle energy. On the basis that one should always replace negative with positive, you may like to use the following technique to bring about positive dreams.

Having prepared your environment, this next technique is of most use when there is a strong, deeply felt association with the issue or request being considered in magical terms, ideal conditions for spell working. It is like being able to consult an encyclopedia that contains a wealth of information in fact, the Higher Self.

A Witches Spell – Spell To Assist In Readings and Divination

Lady of the Abyss is has a way to teach us new things from the Spirit Plane by me reposting this post of hers done on November 10, 2013

Spell To Assist In Readings and Divination

Items You Will Need:

White candle

Whatever tools you use for divination, such as tarot cards, runes, crystal ball, etc.

Not every form of divination works for every Witch. Sometimes it take trial and error to discover which one work the best for you. If you are having a hard time seeing clearly, try doing this before attempting a reading. It is also a good one to do if the issue at hand is very important.

If you still have a hard time seeing the answers you seek, you can try having your familiar help by giving them a choice of tarot cards or runes stones, and seeing which one they pick.

You can call on any God or Goddess for this spell. Apollo is used here because he was the patron God of the Oracle at Delphi, probably the most famous center of divination in the ancient world.

Great Apollo
Farseeing and wise
Help me see clearly
As if through your eyes
 
Bless now these tools
And the one who will see
And send me your vision
Of what is to be
 
Help me set aside feelings
That get in the way
So I might see true
In my reading today.

So Mote It Be

Binding Spell

While this spell may sound gentle for a binding spell it will work and with the way it is worded the person casting it does not have to be concerned with bad things coming back on them. Always remember The Threefold Law when writing a spell or perform a ritual.

Burn or get rid of anything the person you are binding may have given you or a family member when at all possible before performing the spell. If you are doing the spell in a ritual the items may be disposed of them if you are burning them.

In the first, third, sixth, and eighth blanks fill in the person’s full name you wish to bind. In the second, fourth, fifth and seventh blanks fill in your name and all family members, you want covered in this spell. If a person is a junior or second or has some or some other suffix to their name be sure to add it.

One Way To Do A House Blessing

I do not recommend this to be done by novice Witches or anyone new to casting spells and/or The Craft. This is just one way of many you can use to bless your home.

WATER for PROTECTION RECIPE:

What you will need:

24 Ounce glass container with lid of rain or tap water
Add to it whatever amount feels right to you (nothing in potions is as simple as add 1 teaspoon of this or 1 Tablespoon of that it is all done by what feels right to each person doing it.) You do want MORE Salt the garlic in the mixture
Table Salt-No Iodine if possible
Powered Garlic
Roughly Ground or Broken into small pieces Rosemary
Use your Atheme, Ceremonial Knife, Wand or even a spoon you will use for only for mixing potions and/or herbs to mix the ingredients while reciting this spell:

“I bless this water and all it contains to keep my home and property protected from negative energy and entities, anything that may wish to harm those who dwell here,
Anyone living or dead who may try to do or say something against those that live here.
Keep us safe in all types of storms be it Elemental or man-made, physical, mental or emotional.
Make and keep our home a dry place,
A warm and safe place.
Let all who enter our home be filled with love and light
I ask Archangel Michael to surround our home and property with his protective white light.
These are my words THIS IS MY WILL So mote it be”

Strain the water into a bowl you can easily dip your fingers into.

HOW TO DO THE HOUSE BLESSING:

Using your power hand (the one you write with) dip your fingers into the Protection Water and using the sign of the Pentagram or an even sided cross you sprinkle the Water saying, “EVIL LEAVE DO NOT ENTER.” This is said with convection and in a firm voice. Re-dip fingers as soon as they feel even a little dry.

Starting from the doorway you enter through make the sign of a Pentagram or Cross at each of the four corners of the door frame (I do mine inside as well as outside). You then begin walking clockwise through the house stopping at EVERY corner, window, doorway (whether it is a door or and archway between two rooms or a closet or even a cabinet door), mirror, TV, cable box, DVD/Blu Ray/VHS player, computer (desk, laptop, tablet, etc), land line, cell phones, faucets, drains, radios, washer and it hoses, dryer and dryer vent, and everything else you may have that is a connection with the outside world and your home.

Next go to the second level of your home (if you have one); starting at the main entrance follow the same procedure to bless that level as you did on the main floor.

After that if you have a basement in your home bless everything that needs to be on that level.

Last place indoors is the attic (if you can get into it) bless everything that needs to be up there. If you can not get to your attic using a spray bottle, spray a little of the blessed water onto the ceiling in each room and the inside top of doorways.

Now go to the outside of the home. Bless the outside of all doors that the house can be entered through by either anyone living or dead or any type of entities; just as you did indoors. Also do a Pentagram or Cross on any door itself by dipping your fingers in the water draw the sign directly onto the door.

Last but not least you do the perimeter of your property. Strain the water into a spray bottle have the water coming out in a straight line rather than a mist, then just keep squeezing the trigger as you walk the out perimeter of your property. Start at the corner of your property closest to the main entrance of your home than walk clockwise and just keep repeating. “Evil leave do not enter”, in a firm, commanding voice until you reach the place you started at. Walk about two more feet back across where you started so the protection circle/square/rectangle is completely closed. If you have a lot of property you will want to walk a perimeter of the land you mow and/or use most often including a house vegetable garden if you grow one away from your normal yard.

Repeat the house blessing yearly both inside and out as many different negative things try to get at us. By doing it this way you can make sure the protection wards for your family are strong and nothing, has found a weak spot to cross into your property and/or home.

I have also used this as a body spray if I am going to some place where I may not know people. I mix a batch of protection water with less garlic and salt but the same amount of Rosemary. I mix the water and let it stand for two days then strain it. Do not make a lot of the body spray at once because it only smells nice for about two weeks and then the garlic is too strong.

I also spray this on a stone that I carry in my pocket whenever I go out to keep negativity away from myself. If you use this to empower a stone rinse it with running water every time you come home and say, “Water wash all negativity from this stone.” Place it outside or on a windowsill in the Sun to dry. After it is dry re-spray it with the Protection water.

The protection water can be refrigerated for up to two weeks. Or you can freeze it for up to a year. Make sure to strain the herbs out before placing in either fridge or freezer. When I freeze mine I use an ice-cube tray that way I can take out as many cubes to melt as I need the water for.

Sleep Spell

By this candle I do sleep,

hidden from the day, in the night so deep.

O Lady Moon, guide my dreams,

cover me with your beautiful beams.

As the candle flame dies,

please close my eyes.

Now me to wake

Printable Spell to Bind a Bully

Well this came out smaller than I thought it would. I have typed out the spell and instructions below. To print the spell out copy the typed spell below and then paste it on to a word document, that way you can make the font what ever size you want it to be for easy reading when doing this spell. This way will also save you a lot of ink because of the parchment color paper it is written on.

Spell to Bind a Bully

3 Black candles

Black thread

Black pen

Piece of Paper

Empty glass jar with tight fitting lid

This spell should not cause harm to a bully, only make them leave you alone. For greatest effect, complete the spell at midnight on a Saturday of a waning moon.

Set the candles in a triangle shape large enough so that you can sit in the middle. Light the candles. Write the bully’s name the paper and draw a large X over the name. Fold three times and say:

I bind you (name) so that you cannot hurt me anymore, both physically and emotionally. Get out of my life, leave me alone. I bind you (name). I bind you.

Tie thread around the folded paper and pop it in the jar.

Snuff out the candles and add the stubs to the jar. Screw on the lid.

Hide or bury it away from your property.

 

How to “Dress” a Candle

Dressing a candle means you are carving specific  runes into it and anointing it with a specific essential oil for a specific spell and/or ritual. You can use Sandalwood if you do not have the essential oil called for. Sandalwood essential oil is a generic oil that can be used for anything. There are some witches they may diagram with me about using the Sandalwood oil for anything. This is fine, I’m going by what I was taught and have read.

To dress a candle to bring something to you, such as money, good health, a new job, etc: Crave your runes starting at the middle and going up. Then using your index finger on your power hand (the one you write with) anoint the candle making a symbol that means spirituality to you, such as a pentagram, cross, circle,etc, starting in the middle working upward make the symbol three times. As you are making each say the spell or invokation you want to empower the candle with. After you have said the spell times end as you would any other spell.

To dress a candle to banish something from your life, such as over eating, smoking, bad love affiar, etc., dress the candle as above EXCEPT from the middle down.

Using the Elements for the Watchtowers

The Watchtowers are also known as the Guardians of the Cardinal/compass points. The
coincide with the four major compass points North, East, South and West.

Some covens use a single person positioned at each point to call all four Watchtowers.
While others use a group of three and in others the priestess and/or priest call them. It
mainly depends on the covens own traditions.

Solitary witches call the Watchtowers themselves.

When working with the Elements ALWAYS be sure to thank them and send them back from
whence they came. If you fail to release them you will usually find many unexplained things
happening to you, your family and/or in your home, yard or where ever it was you called
them to. Such as a lot of interference with electronic things, sort of background noise you
can’t pin point while on the phones or a host of other things.

You can change the wording to make if feel more your own. In a coven you would call
the Watchtowers however the Priestess and/or Priest teach you to call them for that particular coven. I
sometimes use the following words and other times something else will come out of my
mouth. I try to let my guides lead me when doing anything magickal as they usually know
more of what I need at any given time better than I do.

The Watchtowers are called in for protection just before the Sacred Circle is closed (
opened). The Elements are dismissed before the Circle is closed (opened) at the end of the
ritual. First is a formal way to call the Elements to the Watertowers; followed by a casual
way.

Most covens and solitary witches start at the East Watchtower/cardinal/compass point then
walk clockwise to each of the other directions. It is fine if it feels more comfortable to you to
start at a different point but always walk clockwise after calling the first direction.

Formal way of calling:

Power of ancient dreams, ancestors of the mighty east

Come forth, O guardians of Air.

Let your wings of intelligence my protection be

Hear this call, let my words draw you near.

Lock the gate that none may pass unless

They come in love and trust. Blessed Be!

Power of ancient dreams, ancestors of the mighty south

Come forth, O guardians of Fire.

May your firey breath cleanse my work.

Hear this call, let my words draw you near.

Lock the gate that none may pass unless

They come in love and trust. Blessed Be!

Power of ancient dreams, ancestors of the mighty west

Come forth, O guardians of Water.

May your sweeping waters bring protection all around.

Hear this call, let my words draw you near.

Lock the gate that none may pass unless

They come in love and trust. Blessed Be!

Power of ancient dreams, ancestors of the mighty north

Come forth, O guardians of Earth.

Let the North Star crown your brow.

Hear this call, let my words draw you near.

Lock the gate that none may pass unless

They come in love and trust. Blessed Be!

Causal way of calling:

I call Air to protect the Watchtower of the East and ask to lend your power to my circle.

I call Fire to the Watchtower of the South and ask you to lend your power to my circle

I call Water to the Watchtower of the West and ask you to lend your power to my circle.

I call Earth to the Watchtower of the North and ask you to lend your power to my circle.

I ask the Elements to guard my circle from your Watchtower.

To dismiss the Elements at the end of the ritual and before the Scared Circle is closed:

Starting in the East or whichever direction you called first move counter-clockwise
around to each Watchtower. Saying “_________(name of Element) go back
from where you came with my thanks and gratitude for your protection and help.” When
you have released the last element you would then close (open) your circle.

Candle Mediation

Candles are an intricate part of any witches tools as we use them for many things. They come in many shapes and sizes. What type you use is an individual decision.

They can be useful when you are just learning how to meditate.

How to do a candle meditation:

Light a candle, do not stare directly into the flame but kind of over the top of it. Put on some quiet instrumental music or chanting. Empty everything from your mind except the sight of the candle. Take a deep a deep cleansing breath. Then three deep breaths letting them out slowly. After that breath slowly and rhythmically. To begin try to do a 15-minute mediation working up to however long you want it.

After you have been meditating on a regular basis, at least twice a week, it is a good time to get answers from your guides. Ask a question and “listen” for the answer. This might come as a stray thought right away or it may take days. Answers to do come when a ready for them and our guides want to give them to us and it is not always as fast as we would like.

Have a glass of water sitting near you. After you have blown out the candle take three deep breaths letting them out slowly and allow yourself to slowly come back to the room around you. When you feel you have reconnected with your world drink the water and relax for a minute or two before getting up and carrying on with life.

Do not be surprised if the first few times you try to meditate that you fall asleep just make sure you have the candle in a holder that cannot be knocked over and protects the surface it is on from hot wax melting on to it. I suggest using jar candle until you know you won’t fall asleep during meditation. Meditation is not the same as relaxation therapy. The goal is to stay awake when meditating.

Candle Magick for Helping Plants grow

On your altar set a green candle on your right and a yellow candle on your left.

“I empower these candles with love and light,

to keep my plants healthy from blight.

They will bless my gardens from sunrise to sunrise,

My harvest from, my plants will be my prize.

With your finger from your power hand (the hand you write with) on the green candle you say, “Morrigan I ask you to infuse this candle with your power and energy to help my plants be bountiful and prosper.”

With your finger from your power hand (the hand you write with) on the yellow candle you say, “Green Man I ask you to infuse this candle with your power and energy to help my plants be bountiful and prosper.”

These are my words, This is my will, so mote it be.

Repeat spell three times over both candles except the last line that is in green. That line is only said at the end of the spell.

You will have excess energy left, make sure to ground it to Mother Earth to help her and all living things on her to heal. If you have any questions about the spell please write to me ladybeltane@aol.com BEFORE starting the spell. Thank you
