Since the Day of the Dead occurs at the same time as Samhain this is a suitable way of celebrating and making space within your life for the good things to come. As you contemplate change and the death of the old also spare a thought for the life you wish to lead in the year to come. Bothersome Neighbors Go Away Spell You Will Need: 1 green candle that will burn for 30 minutes a day for a week paper colored pencils/pens/crayons/whatever Procedure: There's often one family in every neighborhood that simply causes trouble for others, no matter how people try to get along with them. Perhaps they have loud parties almost every night or children who torment neighborhood pets or bully other children. When you've honestly tried everything else, here's a spell to help them find a better place to live: a place away from you where they will be happier with their neighborhood. Find a green candle, one large enough to burn 30 minutes a day for at least a week. Make up a short chant something like this... Say: Bothersome neighbors go away, find a much better place to stay. A place where you will be happy, I will be happy, and all around you will be happy. An affordable place, a nice place, A much better place to stay So long as it is far from me and mine. Bothersome neighbors go away. It'd be better to make up your own, especially if you can personalize it to the people in question. Just make it positive and upbeat. The idea here is that you are helping these folks find something better than they have now and helping yourself to peace and quiet at the same time. You'll also need paper and colored pencils/pens/crayons/whatever. Each night light your candle (cast a circle first if you want one), imagining the flame as a spark in their mind which will lead them to a new home. Then sit down an stare into the flame for 5-10 minutes concentrating on your desire that they find a new, better place to live where they will be happy and annoy no one. Then take up your pen and paper and draw while chanting your chant. Stick figure art is okay if that is the best you can do. The first night draw your neighbor's (current) house with them doing the annoying types of things they do. Make it complete even if it's simple art. Put in the trees, windows, and the like. When you are done, wait for the end of the 30 minutes, concentrating on the candle flame and your goal. Fold the paper up and tear it to small shreds. Put out your candle (and close your circle if you created one. Save the torn scraps of paper. On each night for the rest of the week, repeat the ritual, but the art will change. On the second day, draw them excited and happy in front of their current house -- because they've found a better one. For the rest of the week, draw them carrying various stuff out of their current house (as if they were moving). The key thing here is only show there current house. You don't want to limit possibilities by drawing a new house for them. After you've done this a week, put all of the scraps of paper and some of the tail end of the candle in an envelope and bury it or hide it on the property line between their place and yours. If you've used large sheets of paper, you only need to include a portion from each if you need to keep the envelope small. Note that a spell like this can take a while to take effect. Most people do not pack up and move overnight. Boosting Self Confidence You Will Need: 1 mirror, most any kind, other than compact 2 candles, of any color, pink is a good choice, as it brings friendship and romance to yourself. Procedure: In a place that is comfortable for sitting a while, and fire safe, place the mirror with a candle on each side. Light the candles. Turn down, or off, any artificial light. Now, sit down in front of the mirror, gaze at your reflection. Sit comfortably and relaxed. Notice all your good qualities...focus on them...then say aloud how wonderful this feature (eyes, for ex.) are. notice their shape and color. Speak of them aloud. Do this with all your best features. Smile at yourself. Tell yourself how wonderful you are. State all the positive aspects of your personality, (your humor, your willingness to help others, etc). Name all the beautiful traits that make you special. Speak of them aloud, and with confidence. (It may not be as easy as it sounds!) Now comes the really hard part--hopefully with practice and by doing the above things, this will be easier to do. Say: I am beautiful (or handsome) on the outside. I am wonderful within. I am special unto myself, So let the love come in! Negative thoughts, they vanish I now toss them out. Negative feelings, be banished, To let my love shine out! Repeat this, at least 5 times per sitting. And do at least once a day. You may reuse the candles, but please do not blow them out! (It is an insult, to the air and fire elements) Use a snuffer, or wet your fingers and pinch them out. As you get more used to doing this spell, you may repeat these words or any words that you chose. (spells are great, when made personal. Maybe in time and with practice you will want to change them, or maybe you'll want to do that right away or not all. Whatever you prefer). Also, to make an attraction charm to wear, simply find a chain with a pendant that suits you and drape over the mirror while doing your spell or wear it, so it is in sight as you do your spell. The charm gains strength as you continue to work the spell.

Sprinkle it with wine. Decorate the animal with ribbons in colors associated with the specific spirit. The animal is then returned home or to its flock.

This treatment may be extended over the creature's entire natural life or for a specified period of time, although this must be stipulated from the first initiation of the ritual. Anti-Insomnia Spell You Will Need: uncooked oats dried chamomile flowers 1 pinch of madrake cheesecloth Egyptian kyphi incense Procedure: Wrap handfuls of uncooked oats and dried camomile flowers, and a pinch of mandrake in a square of cheesecloth and filter a hot bath through it.

Think of lying down in the fragrant daisies, lulled to sleep by their fresh, sweet smell. Beneath the ground, the underworld; and above, in the blue sky, Witches and rainbow-hued elementals fly by on unimaginable missions. You lie drowsing in the fragrant flowers, following one of the passers-by, then another, tracing their patterns in the ether and following to the tunnel leading to the deep blue yonder.

Try to screen out the talk that usually happens in everyone's mind and just listen to what is trying to be said to you. A Kitchen Spell for Harmony A kitchen is a very special place in the home.

Reaching Your Goals Spell This is a form of magic which can be used for just about anything- thus making it a more advanced type of magic which should only be used by those who are comfortable with the ethics and are prepared to deal with the consequences in they misuse this technique. Sit in a comfortable position with your legs crossed and your arms extended outward. Your receptive hand (whichever hand you do not write with, usually the left) should be wide open, palm facing upward. Procedure: Your projective hand (the hand you do write with, usually the right) should be in a fist. Close your eyes and imagine your goal. Now visualize a bright red fire surrounding your receptive hand, feel the "warmth" of the energy. Imagine it flows up your arm and through your body into your projective hand (the closed hand). Continue letting energy flow from the red energy "flame". Once the impulse hits you, and you feel the time is right, thrust both arms to the right (or left if you are left handed) opening up your projective hand as you do so. This motion should be similar to "throwing" the energy towards your goal. As you do this, say in a commanding voice what will happen as a result of the energy release. (For example, if you used it to get a raise in payment at work, you could say "I will get a raise!") Results, if successfully performed, will be almost immediate. With practice, this can work very well.

OPTIONAL, not suggested: with the knife/razor put some of your blood on the mirror. Say: Witches course through time, we are in need of assistance Oh spirit come, we beckon you.

Traditionally this was performed on the shore of a lake, or other calm body of water (such as a Bay). It was necessary to be able to see the path of the Moon in the water. This ''path'' is the reflection of the moon, stretched along the surface of the water. To perform this spell, you must take a new arrow and place the symbols of your wish/desire along its shaft. Meaningful words or phrases may also be added. When the Moon is full, go to the shore, and face the water. Fix the arrow into your bow and gaze out upon the path of light (which leads to the Moon). Next, speak the words of enchantment, then release the arrow. Say: Where path of Light, to Moon I see, the powers of the Queen shall be ! Shaft of wood, as shaft of light, earth to moon, does now give flight ! The arrow can either be shot out into the path on the water, or upward towards the Moon. The arrow was sacred to Diana, and was considered to carry special powers and blessings, in this type of spell. This is a folk magic level spell, and speaks of the early Pagan simplicity concerning magic. A Spell to See Spirits To see spirits, old European grimoires recommend mixing together aloe, pepper, musk, Vervain, and saffron and burning this in a cemetery. You can adapt this for other locations (like those in which the spirit lived) by adding a bit of sweet grass or tobacco to a specially prepared incense. Create the incense on the anniversary of the death of the individual you wish to contact. This is then burned at 11 am, in the safety of a magic circle that also holds symbolic items to connect you to the entity. Say: Guardians of the Spirit realm, hear and guide my plea. When the witching hour rings true, bring my friend (loved one, etc.) ____ to me. Other souls who hear my call are not welcome in this place. Only the one known as _____ may enter sacred space. Repeat the request three times, twenty minutes apart, then wait quietly for indications of a presence. Signs include the scent of flowers or a favored cologne, a cool wind, movement of curtains, and candles going out or twitching erratically. Once you feel sure the spirit is with you, do not make it tarry overly long. Take care of your business, say farewell, and thank the guardians for their assistance.

A Fire Divination Spell ~ Scott Cunningham Set a fire and watch how quickly the wood begins to burn. If it catches the flame quickly, it is a good sign, and you should proceed with the divination. If it is hesitant, or if you need to use several matches to get even the smallest twig to light, abandon the project until another time. Some say that if the fire lights quickly it is a sign that visitors are on their way. Others say that if the fire is difficult to light, rain is to be expected. Once the fire is actually blazing, watch its flames carefully. If the fire burns to one side of the fireplace, or pit, or area, love may be in the air. Much crackling indicates misfortune ahead; perform protective spells. A distinct hollow in the midst of the flames foretells an ending of a problem bothering you. If the fire suddenly roars up the chimney or up into the air for no apparent reason, an argument may soon occur. Watch your words carefully. Sparks on the back of the chimney or, if outside, flying aggressively up into the air mean that important news is on the way. If a loved one is far from home, poke at the fire with a poker or stick. If shafts of flame shoot up, you can be assured that he or she is well, safe, and happy. Finally, if 3 bolts of flame rise up and burn separately, expect a momentous event to occur soon in your life. Getting A Good Parking Space Spell The Invocation of Squat... I learned this spell some years ago at the Etheracon conference. I forget who taught it, it might have been Judy Harrow but I'm not 100% certain. Squat is the Deva of Parking. She takes the form of a heavyset black woman in a meter-maid's uniform. Parking meters are her altars and the parking fee counts as the sacrifice in the spell. If no parking meter is present, a couple of pennies should be dropped in the street or sidewalk as the offering. The ritual goes as follows: If you are having trouble finding a good parking space, make the sign of Squat: hand splayed with thumb and ring finger touching (sort of like the OK sign but to the ring finger,) picture the Deva, Squat, described above. Say: Squat, Squat, find me a spot Until a space presents itself. After you have parked, give the offering and thank the Deva. Say: Squat, Squat, thanks for the spot. We think you're real hot and we love you a lot. Don't laugh. I've used this spell many times and it works well. It is reputedly in common usage among New York City pagans. Enlightenment Spell Chamomile is a wonderful floral herb, most commonly used in a soothing and calming tea. It is also excellent to throw a handful of the dried fragrant flowers into a ritual bath.

Spell Ritual To Improve Family Harmony You Will Need: stones 1 pen & tissue paper Procedure: Go out and find somewhere where you can look for some stones in piece and quiet. You will need one stone each to represent the members of the family. As you're looking, keep the one person you're dealing with at the time strongly in mind, and as soon as you have the stone, dedicate it immediately by holding it in your hand to your heart, closing your eyes and saying, "This stone is (Aunt Mary)". Get a pen and some tissue paper and write the name of the person on the paper, wrap the stone and keep going until you have all the family represented. Don't forget yourself! (YOU are in this instance a magickian acting from above and upon everyone, including yourself). Bring the stones home. If you work in a circle, cast one; if not, get a clean table cloth or bedsheet and put down on the floor to define your work area. This is where it gets really interesting. Arrange the stones to represent the family as it is now. Follow your feelings and intuitions on this completely to create a representation, a GRID, of the existing conditions with all the conflicts as it is. Allow yourself to become completely fascinated and drawn into this, in essence you are going into a deep trance as you are dealing with these stones which are the people. When you have the representation as it now is established, sit back for a time and just look at it, learn from it, explore it, KNOW what that is and what is going on on many different levels. When you are ready, put both hands on your heart and say out aloud, "Universal forces, guide me with love and harmony, always." Now begin to move the stones to make the grid flow better, more balanced, more powerful, more strong, more interactive - RIGHTER, in other words. Get the new layout as right as you possibly can get it, then hold both hands over it in a gesture of blessing and let your intention for love, harmony and strength pour down on this new layout, touching everyone within it, healing them, making them stronger, giving them vitality, health and happiness. When the grid glows and you really are feeling that it does, sit back, say out aloud, "It is done." Put all the stones together in a bag or a box and put them somewhere safe. You might want to use them again in future as the dynamics shift, to make even greater improvements. Truth Spell You Will Need: 2 candles of your choice Think hard on the subject about which you wish to learn the truth. Light petitioners candle - a candle representing yourself.

Then all at once there came a cry: Haro by yaro! Asleep fell I, While a lady dancing at my side Seemed like a lizard away to glide; Grasses in the wind are waving. I woke in the early light of day, In an olden ruin I did lay, O'er the rock and into the sun I saw a green-gold lizard run! Grasses in the wind are waving. Now the truth I know and it stays with me, For I have seen what I did see, All secret knowledge came to mind, Borne on laughter of the other kind; Grasses in the wind are waving.

View your body critically, and write down your worst features. Carefully fold the list of bad features and seal it in an envelope. Write "bad" on the envelope and put it in a drawer or old handbag and forget about it for now. Go back to the mirror and write a list of your best features, for example you may have seductive eyes, or a sensual mouth, elegant feet and ankles, good boobs or firm buttocks. Put your list of good features under your pillow at bedtime. Next morning carry the list with you in your bag or pocket. Ask your friends and family to tell you one attractive feature about you and add it to the list, even if you do not agree with it. Seal the list in an envelope and put it away with the "bad" list. On the next full Moon, burn the "bad" list without opening the envelope. Read through the remaining "good" list every day for the next month. Read it before you eat, before you shop for food, and before you shop for clothes or cosmetics. You will find that you are automatically choosing healthier foods, and buying clothes and cosmetics that suit your best features. After three full moons you will see a dramatic difference in the way people see you. After six full moons you will see a dramatic difference in the way you see yourself. This spell is the beginning of a new confident phase for you and the start of a healthier diet. Herbal Smoke Spell Timing: Tuesday after a new moon You Will Need: incense burner instant-light charcoal 1 pinch of dried rose petals or yarrow. Repeat every Tuesday after a new moon. Procedure: When the smoke from the incense rises from the burner, visualize your lover's face in the smoke or the glowing coals. Whisper these words over and over until you feel the magick happening. Say: Magick herbs, burn in fire, Bring to me my hearts desire. Moon Child Spell Timing: 2 days prior to the full moon Purpose: Child protection You Will Need: 1 jewel that you regularly wear or carry (a ring with a jewel is perfect) fresh spring water (one cup) fresh moss 1 clean drinking cup Procedure: Two days prior to a full Moon, wrap the jewel in the moss and allow it to remain so overnight. The next morning, remove the jewel from the moss, dispose of the moss and wash and rinse the jewel thoroughly. Do not wear the jewel that day. The following morning, the day before the full Moon, fill the cup with the spring water and place the jewel in the cup. Cover the cup to keep impurities out. Allow it to remain so, undisturbed, overnight. The following day, on the evening of full Moon, after the Moon has risen, stir the water three times with your right forefinger in a clockwise motion. Take the cup in your hands and in a clockwise, stirring motion, move the cup in a clockwise, circular, stirring motion three times. Say: Moon, bright moon, Child of the Mother Earth, Send down your power and strength, Impart them to this jewel, Stone of the ground, seed of the heavens, In the flowing crystal water, Milk from your mother, sustenance of the child, While distant, still one, Provide me with your protection and power, Grant me peace and strength, So as the mother demands, moon child, So it must be done. First, raise the cup towards the sky. Next, drink a few sips of the water. Finally, remove the jewel from the cup and spill the remaining water on the ground. Carry or wear the jewel to ensure your protection. Scrying Spell You Will Need: rounded crystal or glass vial of black paint salt or sea water powered St. John's wort scrying mirror Procedure: This spell uses angelic energy to receive visions of past lives, spirits, and future events via a scrying mirror. Procure a clear, round piece of crystal or concave glass. Wash it in sea or salt water to consecrate it. Take a vial of black paint and add one pinch of finely powdered St. John's Wort, then paint the back of the glass or crystal. While you are painting say the following incantation to the Cabalistic Archangels: Say: I request that Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and Uriel bless this scrying glass! May all visions be pure and true! So mote it be! Allow the paint to fully dry. Using a silver candle in a darkened room, gaze into the scrying mirror and concentrate on a specific question or person that you require information on. The Hyacinth Spell Timing: Waxing or Full Moon Purpose: This spell is to retrieve a loved one or gain the affections of a new love interest. You Will Need: tulip to an onion bulb We should never try to force another to love us or to return to us as that would be a violation of their free will and a karmic no-no. If someone truly desires to be with us, however, but some minor obstacles hinder them from accomplishing said then this spell might help. It utilizes a combination of your own magickal energy in conjunction with the energy of a living organism (a plant) to heighten the potency. The precise purpose of this type of spell is to enhance the receptivity of your love interest to your feelings, desires and goals and to help them overcome minor obstacles - not to make someone love you or come back to you. Theoretically, this spell may be performed with any type of bulb from a tulip to an onion, although I have found that hyacinth and onion bulbs are the most effective. I know, one would not normally expect a less than desirable smelling onion bulb to work, but it can! You need to research and find out how to properly care for the specific plant you decide to use. Please don't write to me asking for instructions on said. Likewise, if your plant starts to die there could be several reasons for this. One, the plant may have been sickly when purchased. Two, you might not be following the directions for taking care of it adequately. To be honest, it is extremely rare that a plant will die as a way of saying, "This union is not meant to be!" Nonetheless, I have heard from time-to-time about a plant meeting its demise due to obsession. Obsession is never healthy for anyone or anything. Procedure: Plant the bulb in a new flower pot naming it your loved one as you do. If possible tape a picture of the desired one to the bottom of the pot and out of the view of others. If you do not have a photo you can write the person's name on a small piece of paper and tape that to the bottom instead. Water the plant. Say: As this root grows, And this blossom blows, May (name loved one) love and caring be turned to me! As (his/her) will, so mote it be! or Say: As this root grows, And this blossom blows, May (name loved one) be free of obstacles and return to me! As (his/her) will, so mote it be! Well of Wishes Candle Spell You Will Need: 1 large firesafe bowl few drops of different colored candle wax 1 white candle 1 coin Wishing Wells have been around as long as there have been puddles to drop lucky pieces into. The dictionary defines the word “Well” as a hole, an apparent reservoir, or a source. With this spell, you will create a “reservoir” or “source” of magic wishes to call upon when you need something special in your life. Drip a few drops of different colored candle wax into the bottom of the bowl. Be sure to use a lot of different colors to symbolize your diverse needs and goals that will come up throughout your life. Now, slightly melt the end of a pure, white candle, just enough to make it sticky, and adhere it to the puddle of multicolored wax. The white candle will bind all of the other candle colors together in harmony. Each morning, light the candle when you get up and put a coin in the bowl while making your wish for the day. Your wish can be anything, from more money, to a new lover, to a happy day. You can even wish for a new pony if you want! Then, just blow out the candle before you leave the house. Whenever you desperately need to have a wish granted, remove a coin from the bowl and plant it in rich soil. You can plant it in your flower bed outside or even in one of your houseplants. If you have no place to plant it, throw it into moving water (toss it over the bridge on your way to work, if necessary) so your message will be carried into the earth. You’ll be placing a coin into the bowl every day, but only remove a coin and bury it if you have a wish that needs to be granted that day. In this way, you’ll be growing a “Well of Wishes”. Since you won’t be removing a coin every day, eventually the bowl will fill up. When that happens, remove some of the coins and use them for good deeds – like wishing for food for a homeless person or healing for someone who is sick. Always leave a few “seed” coins in the bowl, though, to keep your Wishing Well growing. Wiccan Ostara/Spring Equinox/Solitary Ritual Guide ~ Scott Cunningham You Will Need: altar spring flowers 1 potted plant incense 1 candle cauldron or bowl of water Procedure: Place spring flowers on the altar and on the ground around and within the circle.

Also place a flower of the appropriate color at each point: North - Black, brown, green or white; East - White, bright yellow, crimson, blue-white or pastels; South - Red, gold, crimson, orange or white; West - Blue, blue-green, green, gray, indigo or black. Buds and blossoms may be worn, as well. Arrange your tools upon the altar. Light the candles and incense. Cast the Circle. Recite a blessing chant and invoke the Goddess and God. Stand before the altar and gaze upon the plant. Say: Hail Great Goddess, the chains of your wintry prison have fallen away. Now is the greening, when the delicate scent of flowers drifts on the breeze. The cycle begins anew and life rekindles itself by Your magic, Earth Goddess. The God stretches and arises, fervent in His youth, and bursting with the promise of summer. Touch the plant. Connect with its energies and, through it, all nature. Voyage inside its leaves and stems through your visualization - from the center of your consciousness out through your arm and fingers and into the plant itself. Explore its inner nature; sense the miraculous processes of life at work within it. Touching the plant. Say: I walk the earth in friendship, not in dominance. Mother Goddess and Father God, instill within me through this plant a warmth for all living things. Teach me to revere the Earth and all its treasures. May I never forget. Meditate upon the changing of the seasons. Feel the rousing of energies around you in the Earth. If necessary, perform any works of magick at this time. Earth the power raised and release the circle. Wisdom Spell Timing: Waning Moon You Will Need: 1 paper and pen peppermint oil Write the situation down, describing clearly your needs, oppositions and desired outcomes. Dress the paper with Peppermint oil to raise the vibrational energy. Focus on the situation. Say: Waning Moon, waning light, I see he shadows of darkening night. Grand me the guidance of your divine sight. Release the energy, giving up your situation to the Universe. The Universe will provide the wisdom. Keep the paper until your situation is resolved.

Which bears the name of (your Spirit Guide) I bid thee, Spirit, Reveal thy Earthly name! (turn slowly deosil as you speak) Repeat this conjuration three times. Perform a nine card tarot divination for the spirit's name, unless the spirit replies in some other manner. Ask: Have you a message for me? Perform a tarot divination or use the witches' bowl to ask questions. Ask: Spirit, is it true that....? Deal gently with the friendly spirits and they will lead you to the greater mysteries. During your questioning, observe the spirit candle. If it wavers or rises and falls, or flickers unevenly, use the tarot to see if the spirit has a message. You may ask 3 questions. After that you must ask: May I seek further guidance? Ask only 3 more questions. Bid the spirit depart. Say: (Name), Good Spirit, Thou hast diligently answered my questions and i do thank thee. I hereby give thee license to depart. Depart, thrice - blessed spirit, And be thou willing to return when next i conjure thee. By the sound of this bell(use your witch's bell), do i bid thee leave. Depart, depart, depart! Children's Spell Of all childhood pastimes, wishing is one that most people remember fondly. The enchanting thing is that many traditional wishes are actually folk spells. Think of wishing on the first star appearing. The accompanying rhyme is actually an incantation. Tossing a coin in a well with wishes can also become a magickal procedure just by adding a verbal component or visualization. This particular spell combines the coin with starlight for easy recognition for the child. Find any silver- colored coin with the child's birth year on it. Have him/her take it out at dusk and wait for the first star to appear. As it does, have him/her hold the coin up to the starlight. Say: Catch the starlight in this coin so bright I'll get the wish i wish tonight. Within this coin my wish is carried. The magick will grow when it is buried. Have the child put the coin in an area of rich soil where it will remain undisturbed so the spell can grow to manifestation. Centering Ritual Purpose: To establish a calm place to think.

Self Dedication Rite ~ Scott Cunningham Prepare yourself by doing the Ritual Bath and Self Blessing. If you are performing this ritual at the sea or a river, bathe there if you so desire. As you bathe, prepare for the coming rite. Open your consciousness to higher levels of awareness. Breath deep. Cleanse your mind as well as your body. After bathing, dry and dress for the journey. Go to a place in the wild where you feel safe. It should be a comfortable spot where you won't be disturbed by others, an area where the powers of the Earth and the Elements are evident. It may be a mountain top, a desert canyon or cave, perhaps a dense forest, a rocky outcropping over the sea, a quiet island in the center of a lake. Even a lonely part of a park or garden can be used. Draw on your imagination to find the place. You need take nothing with you but a vial of richly scented oil. Sandalwood, frankincense, cinnamon or any other scent is fine. When you arrive at the place of dedication, remove your shoes and sit quietly for a few moments. Calm your heart if you've exerted yourself during your travel. Breathe deeply to return to normal, and keep your mind free of cluttered thoughts. Open yourself to the natural energies around you. When you're calm, rise and pivot slowly on one foot, surveying the land around you. You're seeking the ideal spot. Don't try to find it; open your awareness to the place. When you've discovered it (and you'll know when), sit, kneel or lie flat on your back. Place the oil on the Earth beside you, Don't stand - contact the Earth. Continue deep breathing. Feel the energies around you. Call the Goddess and God in any words you like, or use the following invocation. Memorize these words before the rite so that they'll spill effortlessly from you, or improvise. Say: O Mother Goddess, O Father God, Answers to all mysteries and yet mysteries unanswered; In this place of power I open myself to Your Essence. In this place and in this time I am changed; From hence forth I walk the Paths of the Craft. I dedicate myself to you, Mother Goddess and Father God. (rest for a moment, silent, still. Then continue) Say: I breathe your energies into my body, commingling, blending, mixing them with mine, that I may see the divine in nature, nature in the divine, and divinity within myself and all else. O Great Goddess, O Great God, Make me one with your essence Make me one with your essence Make me one with your essence. You may feel bursting with power and energy, or calm and at peace. Your mind might be in a whirl. The Earth beneath you may throb and undulate with energy. Wild animals, attracted by the psychic occurrence, might grace you with their presence. Whatever occurs, knowthat you have opened yourself and that the Goddess and God have heard you. You should feel different inside, at peace or simply powerful. After the invocation, wet a finger with the oil and mark the symbols of the Goddess and God somewhere on your body. It doesn't matter where; you can do this on your chest, forehead, arms, legs, anywhere. As you anoint, visualize these symbols sinking into your flesh, glowing as they enter your body and then dispersing into millions of tiny points of light. Thank the Goddess and God for Their attention. Sit and meditate before leaving the place of dedication. Once home, celebrate in some special way.

Crossing Of The Winds Spell Timing: Windy day You Will Need: quarter candles glass container cauldron iron bucket charcoal Procedure: Cast a circle the normal way. If it’s windy a circle of pebbles works well. You do not have to have candles but if you want them at the quarters and on a portable altar, then put them inside glass lanterns or jars In your cauldron, censor or a small iron bucket light a fire or charcoals so that you can see the wind blowing smoke. (You can of course use incense made of sweet smelling herbs.) Have 3 attractive pebbles you have chosen yourself as an offering to the winds. Now you invoke the winds. Say: I come to the crossing of the winds in a sacred place that I make my own. In perfect balance with the God and Goddess I offer up this rite of casting ritual stones. North, South, East and West! I call out to the element of air, and wind to offer up my best ritual stones. Elements of Fire, Water, Earth and Air! Churn me in your energies, I dare! Bring to one who asks, the power of your winds! Cross them within me, let me hear them sing! I call the crossing of the winds Raise your hands high into the air. Hold out your wand for this and feel the energy come through it to you. You can do this with your outstretched arms and hands also to `feel` the flow of the wind’s energy. Pick up your 3 pebbles/stones and hurl them from you. Imagine that with each throw your stone will project further. Think of the goal or intent of the spell you wish to cast and `see` it building in power with each throw. Your spell has now been projected and carried by the wind. Hurl the last pebble/stone, and envision your goal/intent. Say: Direct thine and mine energies into this my goal. As is my will, so mote it be! This will also amplify any spell if done in addition. Sleep Spell Purpose: This spell is to soothe one's raging spirit so that that one's internal operations can be restored to the natural order. It is also highly effective in counter-acting nightmares. You Will Need: white household candle your own mind to concentrate on sleep and nothing else Procedure: Take a white household candle and light it without saying a word. Walk counterclockwise around your bed three times. As you do this, project simple protective phrases into the walls, (keep me safe, etc.) Next walk counterclockwise three times in silence, meditating on positive, restful phrases. Finally, blow out the candle, whisper the word ''sleep'' and turn in for the night. This spell does not need to be repeated; once cast, it will have effect so long as the original candle that it was cast on still stands. To reactivate the spell each night if you continue to have difficultly sleeping, simply light the same candle which was used during the original casting for a few minutes and whisper sleep before going to bed again. When the original candle is completely depleted and... if you still have sleeping problems, re-cast spell with new candle.

Cut the ribbon Say: It is so. Bloody Mary Face in the Mirror: Just a Game Timing: The ritual must be performed exactly at midnight. Before anyone takes part in the Bloody Mary ritual, it's important that you understand the origins of Mary's spirit and why her tortured soul is trapped within the spiritual world of the mirror. Never put one of your friends in the bathroom unless they have read about Mary's terrifying past. Understanding what the female phantom wants will help you properly protect yourself in the event that the frightening entity appears in the form of the Bloody Mary face in the mirror. Setting Up The Room: The first step in the ritual is to make sure that the room is set up in a way that will ensure that the border between the physical world and the spiritual world is thin. Most paranormal researchers agree that a darkened room reduces the energy that a spirit requires in order to appear. Secondly, lit candles seem to add spiritual energy to a room and often provide a spirit with the additional energy it needs to materialize. Finally, no one is positive if the phantom that appears is truly evil, so it's important to use a special incantation to protect yourself from any evil that may materialize. Taking these factors into account, setting up the bathroom as follows will help encourage the entity to appear during the ritual, and that the person practicing the ritual will be protected from harm. Turn off all of the lights in the bathroom and the lights in any hallway or room outside the bathroom. Light one or two candles and place them on the bathroom counter near the sink, under the mirror. Light an incense stick and place it near the mirror; many people believe the smoke offers protection from evil. Once the bathroom is prepared and one of your friends has accepted the dare, place her in the bathroom and close the door. Before beginning the ritual, she must first repeat the protection chant so that she will be encircled with protection. Have the participant close her eyes. Say: For thine protection I now pray, Let all evil turn away, Protect me night, Protect me day, And keep misfortune well at bay. Once the chant is completed, your friend must stand in front of the mirror and stare into her own eyes for about a minute. Slowly repeat the following chant thirteen times (some people claim three repetitions are enough) in a row while staring at her own eyes in the mirror. Say 13 times: Bloody Mary (thinking "one") bloody Mary ("two") bloody Mary ("three"). According to those who believe in this ritual, upon reaching the thirteenth bloody Mary, an actual female spirit will materialize directly behind the person looking into the mirror. For many people, it first appears as a vague shape, but in only moments the figure of Mary, with her terrifyingly disfigured face, allegedly becomes very clear. Rules for Ending the Game: At this point, if your friend sees that she has summoned a real spirit, she will most likely scream. No matter what, never keep your friend locked in the bathroom. One claim is that some people have gone insane from the effects of prolonged terror after seeing this female ghost appear behind them. Immediately enter the bathroom with your friends and turn on the lights. According to most stories, it's at this point that the ghost will disappear. Keep in mind that the above ritual is intended for entertainment purposes only. No one has ever proved whether or not this ritual really causes a female entity to appear, but it's important to practice safety whenever attempting to interact with the paranormal. If you're unsure about whether you or your friends will be too scared, try the ritual with two people instead of one. If you do give it a try, be sure to share your experience in the comments box below.

A Spell Of Reawakening The Spring Equinox, called Ostara by many, is a day of perfect balance between night and day, darkness and light, slumber and awakening. Many craft traditions, covens, and solitaries have devised their own rituals for awakening Mother Earth at this time. Many of these can be traced back to England. One common practice is to walk through a natural area, tap the earth three times with a staff or wand, and make a joyful noise to welcome the Goddess's return. This ritual is performed three times in keeping with the sacred number of many of the Pagan sects from western European countries. Now is not only a good time to awaken Mother Earth, but also to awaken ourselves. To awaken your own body, mind, and soul to spring's rebirth, give back to Mother Earth some of the things we've taken from her. Plant a tree, herb garden, or flowers. Feed her animals and birds. As you do any of these things, consecrate your offering and Say: Mother Earth, Goddess we walk upon, May my gifts be of value Even after I'm gone. Today, while I'm here, May my offering be, An act of love for you from me.

Spells To Forget There are a lot of reasons why not to cast a memory loss spell. But, there are instances in which a memory loss spell is useful. If a memory is haunting you and is getting in the way of your every day life try these spells. There are three different spells in this posting. Light three white candles and three red ones. write this on paper than say it while burning the paper. Say: Bit by bit ________________(name of person)'s shall fade, it shall disappear replaced by constant fear. Day by day this is as I say. All memories of me shall disappear into a forgotten bay. As this paper is consumed in flame, all memories of me shall burn with it, bit by bit. So mote it be So mote it be So mote it be! Let the candles burn themselves out and then you can relax. The premise for this rite is that we all have blocked memories in ourselves, that we either won't, or can't face. They may include everything from being teased at school by our 'friends' to emotional, physical, or mental abuse by parents, loved ones, etc. The purpose of this rite is to draw these hidden memories up into a closed box, open it in a manner similar to the Pandora myth, and meet, greet, and make peace with the memories, as they can be very detrimental to one's ego growth if kept hidden. Instead of finding hope in our boxes though, we will find acceptance, and peace with oneself, and one's past. This rite is good for anyone, even those who assume they have had perfect childhoods. You don't always realize the past is dragging you down until it is too late, and you would be amazed by what you can find out about yourself! Preparation: The box should have a lid. Paint the inside glossy black, or line it with an irregular reflective surface, such as aluminum foil. The outside should be decorated with any drawings, pictures, or whatever one may want to help evoke a childlike state of mind, and to help trigger childhood memories. Start with an opening of any sort you feel comfortable with. Light candles and incense as desired. State Intent: It is my will to greet my past, and accept it for what it is. Say: I call the past to meet the present, that the future may be bright. I bring myself forth from the dark, and hold me to the light. Let not the past control my present, let not my future be dark as night. I meet and greet me with open arms, and move back into the light. At this point, one person sits in the center of the group with their box, keeping it closed. She focuses on the box while the rest of the participants circle around, teasing, insulting, degrading her. At this point, the teasing should not be too personal. When she reaches gnosis, she opens the box, and gazes inside, seeing whatever she sees. At this point, the taunting should reach a more personal, and vicious attitude. This continues until they close their box again. The box then is dealt with in whatever manner she sees fit. It can be destroyed, left open in a spot of sunlight, kept for future uses, as it may be a good idea to do this more than once. When the first person is finished, another takes her place, until the entire group has a turn. Take a clean peace of paper. Write the name of the person and the event you wish them to forget (please be precise about the thing you wish them to forget). Light a candle and hold the paper above it... Say: Powers i invoke Which light in darkness hold I am praying now to Thee To take from you the memory. What once was revealed Forgotten shall be I pray now to Thee So mote it be! Now burn the paper. Spell to Gain Control Over a Situation You Will Need: 1 purple candle 1 pen and paper vegetable oil 1 fireproof dish cayenne pepper Procedure: Inscribe the candle with your name, then draw the infinity symbol (a horizontal figure 8), both above and below your name.

Say: Wax and herb, now bring me power That grows with every passing hour. Bring control back unto me. As I will, so mote it be! Let the candle completely burn down, then burn the paper in the fireproof dish. Flush the ashes down the toilet, or bury them under a tree. Spell to Get Out of a Situation You Will Need: 1 charged or anointed white candle Procedure: Charge/anoint the candle for all intent and purpose Begin this (9) nine day ritual on a Monday. Say: I cleanse, anoint, then charge my candle with this incantation. Cleansed and Blessed Are Thee, Now to Perform Thy Service for Me Having prepared yourself according to your custom: Repeat 9 times: Foolish I was, Wise I Now Am. A light of hope i see which stands before me; It's flame releases me from this predicament. O lady, I am grateful O lady, I thank thee - I am free. I am free; O lady, I thank thee. If the Predicament was rather a large blunder or error in judgment a copy of the two is most effective to get release from the situation.

Close your eyes and focus on your goal of attracting a lover. Picture your lover as you breath in the essence of the incense. Say 3 Times: I desire (person's name) Open your eyes and anoint your red candle with the pre-made fire potion mixture. This mixture is an homage to the passion-related element of fire. Light your red candle (color represents energy, passion, sex, protection, fire, fertility, strength, potency, lust, blood.) Take the object belonging to the person you desire and consecrate it to the four natural elements. Pass it through the smoke of the incense (air), glide it by the flame (fire), sprinkle it with some earth (earth), and add a dash of salt water on it (water).

A solitary candle should be lighted on the eve of a full moon. In the flame of the candle should the small end of the twig be blackened to charcoal and carefully should this thing be accomplished so as not to overly damage the twig. Once the twig has been sufficiently blackened on its smallest end, a piece of paper should be torn on all sides so as to form a square a hand's breadth wide and long. On the square of paper, using the blackened end of the twig should be written the name of the person whose desires it be that you seek. This being done, the paper should be neatly rolled and sealed with wax of the candle. Say Repeatedly Aloud: Mighty oak of ages past Watcher of the world and all that passes Impart unto me thy knowledge That which has been brought to thee on the four winds And transferred to your heart from the depths of the earth Let no secret thing remain hidden, but rather As the light brings thee life Let thy life bring unto me knowledge So this I ask So may it be.

Reaching Your Goals Spell You Will Need: This is a form of magic which can be used for just about anything- thus making it a more advanced type of magic which should only be used by those who are comfortable with the ethics and are prepared to deal with the consequences in they misuse this technique. Procedure: Sit in a comfortable position with your legs crossed and your arms extended outward. Your receptive hand (whichever hand you do not write with, usually the left) should be wide open, palm facing upward. Your projective hand (the hand you do write with, usually the right) should be in a fist. Close your eyes and imagine your goal. Now visualize a bright red fire surrounding your receptive hand, feel the "warmth" of the energy. Imagine it flows up your arm and through your body into your projective hand (the closed hand). Continue letting energy flow from the red energy "flame". Once the impulse hits you, and you feel the time is right, thrust both arms to the right (or left if you are left handed) opening up your projective hand as you do so. This motion should be similar to "throwing" the energy towards your goal. As you do this, say in a commanding voice what will happen as a result of the energy release. For example, if you used it to get a raise in payment at work, you could say "I will get a raise!" Results, if successfully performed, will be almost immediate. With practice, this can work very well. An Irish Spell For Faithfulness Procedure: Before giving a drink to one's beloved, repeat these words secretly 3 times over it...

About Weather Magick Weather spells are an ambiguous topic. It is extremely personal magic. My desire for a beautiful sunny day may correspond to your need for rain. Will our spells cancel each other's out? Does the most powerful magician win? Despite these inherent difficulties, Weather Spells are among the most ancient magical genres. The most successful weather spells are cast by a community in response to a consensus regarding a weather emergency, typically either too much or too little rain. It was believed that one could summon or banish storms by invoking ancient spirits. In essence the storms and winds are spirits. This belief remains personified in the orisha Oya, who embodies the hurricanes that travel from West Africa to the Caribbean annually. Vestiges of these beliefs linger in the tradition of naming hurricanes, by naming the spirit, a measure of control is maintained. Magical and spiritual aspects of weather have always been controversial: Ancient Mesopotamian wind spirits could be destructive, as can the modern Central American "Aires." Jews perceived winds as messengers of the Creator, although not all are inherently benevolent. In the Odyssey, Odysseus is given a bag of winds as a divine gift, sealed up with knot magic. When his curious men release the knots too soon, the gift turns to disaster. According to Saint Thomas, wind and rain could be produced by demons. Hence magicians who offered to sell storms to those who needed them. The earliest ecclesiastic law in England, the Liber Penitentiales of Saint Theodore, Archbishop of Canterbury from 668 through 690, was directed against those who caused storms by invoking "fiends." Balance The Elements Within You Will Need: 5 candles (1 white, 1 blue, 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 green Lighter or matches Timing: Full Moon in Cancer or Libra Procedure: Gather up the items you need, and choose a area where you will not be disturbed. Cast a circle, call the quarters (elements). Place all 5 candles in front of you, and light them one by one.. and say the following as each one is lit. Green Candle Say: Elements of Earth, I call you near, Balance within me, For unbalance I fear. Yellow Candle Say: Elements of Air, I call you near, Balance within me, For unbalance I fear. Red Candle Say: Elements of Fire, I call you near, Balance within me, For unbalance I fear. Blue Candle Say: Elements of Water, I call you near, Balance within me, For unbalance I fear. White Candle Say: Elements of Akasha, I call you near, Balance within me, For unbalance I fear. Sit in front of the 5 lit candles and put your arms around yourself as if you were giving yourself a hug. Visualize a white light sweeping from your hands and into your body, balancing everything within you, the good and the bad (be honest with yourself). Say 3 times: Five Elements I’ve called, Within me they brawled. Balance once more, Akasha fix these four! Remove your arms from around yourself (out of the hugging position), and meditate in front of the candles, 5 minutes at least! Think to yourself of all your positive and negative qualities. Be completely honest with yourself, no matter how much you rather NOT think of your negative qualities. During this meditation accept yourself completely, the good, the bad, and even the ugly. Balance cannot be attained when within yourself their is a unbalance of yourself, when you do not accept your negative qualities you end up accepting more of your positive qualities. Think of it like having Good on one side of a scale, and bad on the other, and you pushing your finger on the good side to make it win in weight. Let these two equal out, because without one, there is no other. So Unless you plan on completely canceling out your good and bad qualities, this spell is a keeper! Besides if you canceled them all out.. You’d well, be a Veggie.. (No emotion, no nothing). Let the candles burn themselves out or use a candle snuffer to put them out, release the quarters and close the circle. Control your Element: To help and understand the practice of using your element to its highest ability. The first step is to become one with the element you want to work with. Allow it to fill you completely and become a part of you. Remember you are working with an energy greater than yourself. You must be at one with the element before it can affect you. Feel that you are made of only the element you have chosen. Say: I am one with Infinite (name of element) Say this until you feel as though you are that element. Feel the infinite energy of the element coursing through you, and know that it has the power to affect you. See yourself as taking on the characteristics that this larger power possesses. A useful exercise is practicing becoming in tune with the different elements. For water, float in a pool or play in the bath. For earth, go lie down in a field or forest, or even in your own backyard. For air you can visit a windy hill or sit in front of a fan. For fire, sit in a desert or a dry sauna. If this is unavailable, you could turn up the heat in your home. Breathe in the element feeling its energy fill you, cleansing you, then breathe out letting the element take out any impurities with it. Spend at least a week on each element. Then practice becoming the element. With steady practice you will get results. Now you can guide how this greater energy will specifically affect you. A good way to do this is to think about the area you are trying to heal (if you are interested in healing yourself, for example), and give yourself affirmations such as: My stomach is peaceful and tranquil or The pain is gone. You can even just use one word affirmations like: Peace, tranquility, soothing, etc. You are in effect taking the broad characteristics of an element and trying to narrow it down to your specific problem. Keep up your concentration until you have an effect, which is not always easy to do, especially if you are experiencing great pain. Feeling one with the element, focusing it on a particular problem, while saying your affirmations, all at the same time. It can get a bit difficult, but the rewards are worth the trouble. It may take several minutes to achieve results, depending upon the problem. If after many minutes of concentration you have not received the full benefit, try letting go of the images and let the element follow through on its own. This is especially true in cases of diarrhea, which usually takes several hours. You may have to use several treatments until you achieve the desired effect. After you know what each element can do, you can tailor your treatments to a specific purpose. Elemental Magick Spells Many people who practice witchcraft like to use elemental magick spells, as it is a very natural form of magick. It's also much easier to learn (and remember) the basic qualities and attributes of 4 elements rather than learn hundreds of other correspondences for herbs, stones or oils. Though it may be simpler than some other spells, elemental magick spells can still be powerful. Air: The qualities that air represents include: ideas, inspiration, creativity, intelligence, travel, freedom, new beginnings and mental clarity. If you want a spell for any of these ideas, you should incorporate air into your magick. Items like feathers, bells, incense and quartz all have air attributes. Keep reading for more air spells. Earth: This is an element that stands for grounding, all forms of nature, money and prosperity, growth, rules and responsibility. If you want to represent earth on your altar, you can use a pentacle, stones, or a bowl of earth or rock salt. For earth spells, crystals and herbs are often used since they are natural items directly from the earth. Fire: Candle spells are the most popular kind of witchcraft spell, and are a good example of using fire. Fire should be used for spells involving passion, energy, strength, creativity and anger. Items for fire include candles (obviously) as well as volcanic glass, and the athame (though some traditions have the athame associated with air). Fire spells usually involve candles, but not always. Water: Water energies are often used in spells for love, fertility, friendship, healing and sleep. But spells don't often call for actual water. Crystals like aquamarine and moonstone make great "water" additions, as do herbs like lilac. A chalice is the usual altar tool to represent the element of water. If you do use water in your water spells, try to use naturally collected rainwater Exercises For Elemental Absorption, & Projection This exercise is very important to the art of magickal influences. It is through the absorption and projection of the elements that certain metaphysical forces are drawn towards manifestation. Absorbing Fire: Sit comfortably and imagine yourself in the center of a sphere of fire ( nothing exists but you and the sphere). Inhale, imagining that this fire is drawn into your body.. Imagine that you are hollow and being filled with fire Keep count of how many breaths (with a string of beads) it takes you to become filled with fire. While you are inhaling an element imagine the desired characteristic which corresponds to it. Mentally fix it and emotionally fix it. Once you have completed this stage, visualize yourself (inside & out) glowing red. Now you are ready to project the element. Exhale upon the object, glowing with it. With each act of exhaling count again with the beads. You must exhale exactly as many times as you inhaled. Absorbing Air: This is done the same as with Fire except you will inhale air and see yourself as expanding with the Air. You will have the sensation of growing lighter. There will be no temperature change. Absorbing Water: Same above method. Imagine the sensation of coldness filling you. Become heavy but fluid, feeling the weight of movement. Absorbing Earth: Same manner as the others, Imagine the sensation of weight, feel loose soil pouring in like sand in an hour glass. Do not imagine clay earth as this has water in it. Do not imagine temperature change. Four Portals Ritual Purpose: A ritual honoring the four Portals. I use this as a weekly gesture to honor the four elemental Kings, Elements, Portals, or Directions and can be adapted to suit. It is a ritual of acknowledgment of the elementals help we receive each day in order to live, the help they give us in order to work our spells and the hard work they do to keep all living beings and the planet alive. It is a symbolic giving of a little something and to ask nothing in return - a kind of thanks-giving as it were. Timing: Dawn or dusk You Will Need: 4 candles 1 white candle grains or rice (Earth) small blossoms (Air) wine (Water) incense stick (Fire) Preferably at dawn or dusk when the veil between the worlds is at its thinnest, place four candles, stones etc that represent the elements, place a white candle in the center and cast your circle (circle casting is optional). Have prepared on your altar grains (rice or wheat) to represent Earth, small blossoms ( I use scented white Jasmin) for Air, wine for Water and incense (stick) for Fire.
