Dream Weaver Spell
To bring informative and helpful dreams.
Items You Will Need:
Piece of Amethyst
Piece of paper or picture
Small muslin or silk bag/piece of cloth with ribbon
Place stone, mugwort, and slip of paper on which is written the issue you want answers to in the bag or cloth. When done with the spell, put the bag under your pillow. (You don’t need to use all of these if you don’t have them, and you can just put a slip of paper under your pillow instead of the bag.)
Chant the following:
“Spirits of sleep and intuition
I call on you to lend a hand
As I slumber, send me visions
So I might know and understand.”
“Send me answers to my questions
Clarify confusion’s mist
Send me knowledge as I’m sleeping
Which awake I might resist.”
“Let my dreams be strong and true
Containing knowledge that I need
Intuition rules at night
So for wise dreams I plant the seed.”

Cast your circle. Light a white and pink candle, place them on your altar or work area. Crush the cloves, cardamom and salt to a fine powder. Blend with the herbs and put in bags. As you are making the bags concentrate on peaceful memories and beautiful thoughts. Seal the bags. Close your circle.
Hang the bags at the corners of your bed. As you hang each bag, say:
Sleep be with me
Let my mind be eased
Let my body be calmed
Wings of darkness,
Let the sight of night and dream
Be clear, be quiet,
Let my troubles drift away and let me dream.

Lay the scarf out. You will be putting spices into it. Place the spices (ground sage, 4 cloves, basil) into the scarf and add 2 drops of oil. Gather the scarf at the top (like a moneybag) and tie it with the ribbon. On the outside of the scarf draw the nightmare that plagues you (e.g. spiders, falling, whatever). Place the scarf under your pillow and sleep with it there.
The Witches Spell for Saturday, February 2nd
Dream Tending Spell
Imbolc – Groundhog Day
Color of the Day: Brown
Incense of the Day: Sandalwood
This is a truly special day for Wiccans and some Witches. It is Imbolc, a high holiday that honors the triple Goddess Brigit and one of the eight Sabbats that mark the turning of the Wheel of the Year. Groundhog Day is also observed today. This holiday incorporates the seasonal divination of the more ancient Imbolc, which uses the movement of a snake rather than the shadow of a groundhog to divine how much longer winter will remain. It is the beginning of the Storm Moon and also the time of the Feast of Oya, the orisha of weather and changes. To the Iroquois people, it is Midwinter Ceremony, a time to bless the fields, tell your dreams, and pay tribute to your Ancestors. Today is also the birthday of Marie Laveau II, New Orleans’ Voodoo Queen and diviner extraordinaire. At bedtime now, light a braid of sweet grass. Extinguish the flame but allow the braid to smolder. Wave the braid lovingly and with great care around your bedroom, motioning with your hand to encourage the smoke to drift in a snake-like stream over your bed and pillow. Dip the braid in springwater, making absolutely sure no flame remains. Then put the braid away. Pour lavender water in a large bowl. Put your favorite seashell inside the bowl of water. As you sleep, the bowl will act as a conduit for messages from the Ancestors, nature spirits, and the great beyond. Place this under your bed or on your bed table. Replenish the water as needed over a period of two weeks. Write down your dreams in a journal. Read over them frequently. Messages revealed in the darkness of winter have special meaning. Work each day to lift the shroud of darkness so you can glimpse new growth and the coming light of spring. Understanding the mysteries of winter is at the heart of Imbolc and its celebration.

Egyptian Kyphi Incense
Wrap handfuls of uncooked oats and dried chamomile flowers, add a pinch of mandrake in a square of cheesecloth and filter a hot bath through it. Light some Egyptian Kyphi incense and bathe while deeply breathing the aromas. In bed, envisage yourself in a field of chamomile like Dorothy surrounded by poppies in the Wizard of Oa.

What you need: 1 red candle, an altar with a pentagram upon it

in front of the altar, then say:
“Let me dream a bright dream with my soulmate send him/her to me now.

MAKE SOMEONE DREAM OF YOU
Do you ever want to get an important message through to someone,
but you just don’t know how to do it? Here is what you do:
Determine precisely what it is you want them to hear, or perhaps feel.
Write down your wish on a piece of paper in simple sentence form.
Make a dream pillow using a small square of fabric and a little batting.
Throw in a pinch of lavender and rosemary. Put in the piece of paper last, then sew up the end.
Put the dream pillow on your altar. Do an altar devotion to center yourself, then create sacred space.
Cast a circle and call the quarters if you like, but is isn’t necessary.
Center yourself, then hold your hands over the dream pillow and say the following:
Holy Mother, Goddess Divine, I stand before your sacred shrine.
This person won’t listen or hear My words tickle at deafened ear.
Holy Mother, Goddess Divine, Send a dream, awaken the mind.
Through his/her vision he/she might live The nightmare/passion/lesson he/she so freely give.
Holy Mother, Goddess Divine Send them your enchanted design
Clear out the cobwebs, tear down walls Carry my message through spirit calls.
Feel free to change the incantation to suit your purpose.
TO KEEP AWAY NIGHTMARES AND BRING PROPHETIC DREAMS
Stitch a small pillow of muslin of another light weight fabric.
create a pillow that is able to be opened by putting Velcro at one end.
This allows you to “refresh” the pillow from time to time with new herbs without having to
unstitch the end or make a new pillow. You may wish to cover muslin pillow with a light
weight, washable “casing” as well. Once you stitch the pillow together, fill with:
4 oz dried lavender flowers 4 oz dried sage
2 oz ground orris root-as a preservative-optional
4 oz deer’s tongue herb 2 oz cedar shavings
4 oz coltsfoot herb 4 oz sweet fern 2 oz violet
Keep dream pillow under or inside of your regular bed pillow. When storing your pillow each
morning you may either leave it where it is or put it inside of a plastic bad by your bed.
Storing it in the bag will help the herbs retain their freshness for a longer period of time.
