To Make A Charm for Control

TO MAKE A CHARM FOR CONTROL

 

Special Tools:
One red candle, One white candle, A small piece of white paper, Protection oil (pre-made or homemade), Ink pen, Red ribbon
Cast the circle. Set a white candle alight on the left to represent the Goddess and a red candle alight on the right to represent the God. Place materials for the charm between the candles. Using the protection oil, with the index finger of the right hand, draw a pentagram in the middle of the paper while saying:\
“With the seal of this pentagram I request this charm be used for protection and authority over those I am with today.”
Using a pen, in the center of the oil-drawn pentagram, draw the rune Algiz,  (the rune of protection). Say:
With this rune, Algiz, I request this charm be used for protection and control over all I do”.
Now seal it but If you’re doing the ritual for someone else, hand him/her the piece  of paper and tell him/her to concentrate on the rune and what it means and ask  aloud for what you want. Then to seal those energies into the charm, tell him or her:
“When you are ready, roll the paper up tightly,  lengthwise and give it back to me.”
When the charm is handed back it is wrapped three times with a red ribbon sealed with wax dripped onto it (use a ring or seal if you have one or draw a symbol like the 3 pointed star in the hot wax pool to seal and then tie the ribbon into a bow. Consecrate the charm with an element of the God, fire, and an element of the Goddess, air (the smoke from the candles). Hold the charm over the red candle of the God and say,
 
“I consecrate you in fire for (name)
so that he/she can defend and protect
him/herself/ myself with the powers
he/she/ I has (have).
Hold the charm in the smoke of the white candle of the Goddess and say:

“I consecrate you in air for (name)
so that he/she I can defend and protect
him/herself or self with the powers
he/she (I) has (have).”

Tightly clasp the charm in both hands, the right hand around the charm and the left over your right.
Concentrate on the charms task. Seal the left end of the charm with white wax and right end with red wax. The charm is complete and given to the intended person or kept by you if you make it for yourself. Close the circle.

Protection Charms

PROTECTION CHARMS

Mistletoe, also known as golden bough, carried in a little hand sewn cloth bag is a traditional Celtic method of protecting the self and is also used by the followers of the magic from America’s South.

Marjoram or wild oregano is believed to absorb dangerous negative energies when powdered and sprinkled about the home.

In Italy the followers of Italian witchcraft or stregheria make this herb into a tea and add it to the wash and scrub water to protect the home and its inhabitants.

Cuban and Puerto Rican followers of the folk religion known as Santeria regularly burns brown sugar, a pinch of sulfur and garlic powder on charcoal within their homes to cleanse them of any negative energy. When the home has been cleansed it is protected by praying to Santa Barbara, the saint of protection, by the light of a red and a white candle.

A pinch of sulfur powder and cayenne pepper carried in a little brown paper pouch upon which a sword has been drawn, can be carried to ward off hostile words and deeds.

Plain bluing (used to whiten clothes in the wash) is said to ward off evil spirits in the magic of America’s South. The bluing is generally carried in a little blue paper pouch. When a little sulfur and blue metal stone (the type often used in the process of making concrete) are added to bluing and carried in a blue cloth pouch, the charm is said to simultaneously ward off evil and attract lucky energies to the bearer.

Mirrors are said to frighten away dark spirits and tiny pieces of silvered glass are often sewn into Indian cotton dresses as are bells which are also used for this purpose. A tiny silver bell worn about the neck is a very potent protective charm as evil spirits cannot abide the sweet ring of any bell.

Travelers are especially in need of protection when in a foreign land. A tiny mirror smeared with a clove of garlic and placed beneath the bed is said to protect the sleeper when away from his or her own home.

The mirror may also be carried on one’s person for this same purpose.

 Stay On The Path Charm

 

Staying on the path to better health takes effort and resolve. The rewards are well worth it so use all your resources to remain focused.

For this charm, use a white candle and a white stone you find in nature.
At 10:00 p.m., light the candle. Clean the stone thoroughly, and put it on your altar. Say this prayer when you need some divine help to stay on your path:

Dear Goddess and God, I pray you
Help me stay on the path
To healing and better health
Strengthen my will and spirit
So that I make healthier choices
Every night and every day
Thank you divine Lady and Lord!
Blessed Be! 

TALISMANS

TALISMANS

Because talismans are intended to provide power, energy, and specific benefits they are often made at times that are believed to be spiritually or astrologically significant. They are frequently made from stone, metal, or parchment as these substances can easily be inscribed with words or pictures to add additional power. Many talismans come from predatory animals. A leopard’s claw, shark’s tooth, or eagle’s feather, for instance, are believed to endow the wearer with some of the qualities of the animal from which it came.

People in competitive fields, such as sport, frequently have talismans to help them achieve their goals. Vida Blue – a famous Oakland A’s baseball pitcher in the 1970s and 80s – had a special cap that became his talisman. Finally, it became so old and faded that league officials threatened to suspend him if he did not change it. Blue got himself a new cap, and ceremonially burned his old cap at a pre-game ceremony.

The most famous talisman is a six-pointed star, made from two overlapping triangles. The upward pointing triangle symbolizes fire, the sky, and male energy. The downward pointing triangle symbolizes water, earth, and female energy.

The power of this talisman is such that mystic Arthur Edward Waite wrote: “Nothing was believed impossible for those who possessed it.” (A. E. Waite, The Occult Sciences [Secaucus, NJ: University Books, 1974], 111).

As the Star of David, this talisman symbolizes both the Jewish religion and the nation of Israel. It is also known as the Seal of Solomon because King Solomon is believed to have used it. However, it predates his time by hundreds of years.

AMULETS

AMULETS

Amulets have been worn for protection for thousands of years. Early peoples lived in a world where strange and frightening things occurred that defied explanation. Consequently, amulets were used to protect homes, families, and livestock.

Amulets were also used to protect people from the “evil eye.” The belief that a person or animal could harm another by staring at them with an evil eye dates back at least five thousand years, and ancient clay tablets have been found that describe the damage that the evil eye can inflict. The Sumerian god Ea spent most of his time fighting the evil eye. Even today, in many parts of the world, the evil eye is considered a major threat, and various kinds of amulets are used to avert it.

Amulets were originally natural items, such as an animal’s tooth or a semi-precious stone. However, you can choose anything you like. Medals, bells, keys, and photographs can all be used as amulets. Many police officers in early twentieth-century New York carried St. Jude medals with them for protection. St. Jude is the patron saint of policemen.

Knots make effective amulets because they are believed to catch evil spirits. My grandmother tied knots on all her kitchen aprons to protect both her and the food she was preparing.

Take your time when choosing an amulet. Think about your purpose in wanting one, and how you will wear or carry it. On several occasions, amulets seem to have found me when I needed them. On one occasion, a man I met at an airport gave me a small piece of hematite. I was on my way to see someone to discuss a business proposition. The hematite protected me from his overpowering manner.

LUCKY CHARMS

LUCKY CHARMS

Charms were originally spoken or sung. The word charm comes from the French charme, which means song. The blessing that a priest gives at the end of a service is an example of this sort of charm. But gradually, people came to the conclusion that spoken words were ephemeral, while a solid object was permanent. Objects that had special significance – such as a splinter that was believed to be from the cross of Jesus – replaced sung or spoken charms.

Almost anything can (and has been) used as a charm. Buttons and coins are good examples. This is because these items are frequently lost, and found by others. Anything that you find can be used as a charm. Small objects that are given to you also make good charms, because of the pleasant connotations they provide. Many gift stores have a selection of small objects that can be used as charms.

Lucky charms are normally carried on the person, but there are exceptions. My grandmother had a metal tin full of buttons. She would shake the tin vigorously whenever she wanted good luck. I have seen St. Christopher medals attached to the inside mirror of many taxicabs. These drivers obviously prefer to have the medal where they can see it, rather than somewhere on their person. The St. Christopher medal is a charm that protects travelers, as St. Christopher is the patron saint of travelers. A series of failures on the U.S. Navy’s Vanguard rocket project in the 1960s was blamed on the absence of a St. Christopher medal. One was placed on the next rocket, and it performed perfectly. A four-leaf clover has always been considered a lucky charm. This old Irish rhyme that explains why:

• One leaf is for fame,
• And one leaf is for wealth,
• And one is for a faithful lover,
• And one to bring you glorious health,
• Are all in the four-leaved clover.

A number of lucky charms have religious significance. Fish have come to symbolize the Christian church, possibly because of the story of Jesus feeding the five thousand. However, the Greek word for fish forms an acronym of the initial letters of “Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior” in Greek, and this is a more likely explanation. A fish charm attracts wealth and abundance.

The ankh is an ancient Egyptian symbol for everlasting life, and is sometimes known as the cross of life. It provides good luck. It also wards off illness and disease, which means that it can be used as an amulet as well as a charm.

Charm bracelets allow people to wear a number of charms at the same time. Many people have a collection of objects that they use as charms, either singly or together. They do not need to be visible, and can be worn under clothing or carried in a purse, if desired.
