PEACE RITUAL
Design this ritual to suit your needs.
Choose candle colors that represent the things you seek peace for
(e.g., maybe green and brown for peace on earth).
"From out of the dark and into the light
A circular mark, a candle burns bright.
I look towards the sky...my song do I sing.
Spirits soar high and gifts do I bring.
I offer my all! My mind, I then clear
Hearken my call! I feel you are near!
Candle burns higher; my spirits set free!
Hotter than fire, this magic will be!
Let magic come 'round, from under the ground,
To form with my sound and then, to be bound!
Around me I feel the magic so real,
Before you I kneel.. the spell I now seal!
Let all hatred CEASE! And let there be PEACE!
These words that I say, with magick AWAY!
This spell that I send is now at an end.
Let the magick I've laid, go forth and not fade!
SO MOTE IT BE!"
TO LOSE YOUR TROUBLES
Take a handful of earth and gaze into it.
Put all your troubles and thoughts of distress into it.
State exactly what it is that's troubling you.
When finished, throw the dirt behind you and walk away without turning around to look at it.
SPELL TO BANISH ANGER
Get a black stone today (quartz crystal works well) and some winter greenery such as pine, holly, evergreen, or hemlock. Place the black stone to your forehead, and focus your negative emotions into it. Con-centrate on the anger or negativity leaving your body, mind, and spirit. Take the stone and throw it in the nearest body of water, where no one else is likely to pick it up. Tack the greenery over your front and back doors. The purity of the greenery will keep negative influences at bay for the holidays.
SPELL TO GENERATE MOTIVATION, ENTHUSIAM, & FOCUS
This is a quick spell to be performed whenever you are having a hard time concentrating or trying to muster energy and enthusiasm to do something that needs to be done.
In this terse layout, the ACE OF WANDS depicts pure energy, especially directed toward worthwhile projects. THE MAGICIAN represents you, focusing your attention, applying yourself, using your energy to create and achieve, realizing your full potential. The third card can vary, depending on what it is that you need motivation to start of complete. You could use the 8 OF PENTACLES, which represents work. However, you could substitute other Tarot cards in this position. For example, for help , for help in concentrating on studies, use THE HIGH PRIESTESS; to get motivated to start exercising, use STRENGTH; to break a bad habit, use TEMPERANCE; to enter a conflict try the 7 OF WANDS; to summon initiative to leave a bad situation, use the 8 OF CUPS, or the 6 OF SWORDS. There are many possibilities.
The tarot cards are the only materials you need to perform this spell, since you would most likely want to perform it when there is an urgency to get into or on with whatever it is that needs to be done.
Otherwise, consider using a minimum of accessories - perhaps just a single candle. If you do have time to enhance the layout with out accessories, you may use candles, flowers, crystals and gemstones, and cloth to lay the cards upon, in shades or combinations of shades or red for energy, orange for unity of mind and body, yellow for intellect, blue for concentration, green for adaptability, purple for ambition, or white for harmony of all elements.
To perform this spell you may use it in combination with your usual ritual or just proceed by laying out the cards and doing the following meditation, visualization and incantation.
First set the ACE OF WANDS in place; then stand up if you are not already standing. Stretch every limb, wiggle your fingers and toes, do a few head and neck rolls, and spend a few moments trying to feel your Life Force as it flows through your body.
Next, set THE MAGICIAN in place beside the ACE. Picture yourself as the magician in the card. Meditate on the thought that you are a magician with the ability to summon your inner energies to achieve any goal.
Finally, lay down the 8 OF PENTACLES or whichever card you have chosen to represent what you want to achieve or concentrate on. Spend a few moments thinking about what you want to do, and how you want to do it.
After you have spent sufficient time meditation on the cards and visualizations, carefully, and with as much feeling as you can recite the following incantation. (If you are not a witch, you may want to call it an affirmation).
"I summon energy and will,/for great is the power within me!
My life force flows strong/and quickens every cell of my body,
and every atom of my being./I am energized and refreshed.
My mind is relaxed and calm./I see clearly and deeply,
and ideas flow easily./My will is all-powerful.
My body, mind, and spirit are working together/to help me accomplish what I will.
I immerse myself in my work./I accomplish my goals.
And I am eager to do more and more!"
After saying the affirmation/incantation, close your eyes, relax, and put everything out of your mind, including the work that you have to do. Now, count backwards from 200 to 0. As you count, you will begin to feel an impulse to stop counting, get up and immediately immerse yourself in whatever project awaits. However, for best effect, resist these impulses and finish the counting. Then you will be able to get up and get on with your work, feeling enthusiastic and refreshed.
You may consider the spell closed at this point, or you may close in your customary way.
CENTERING SPELL
Before the holiday crush, center yourself with this simple and powerful spell. Find a quiet space and gather a white or silver candle, a glass bowl of spring water, a smooth stone, and a spoonful of salt. Light the candle, and concentrate on the flame. Hold the stone in your palm. Feel its weight, and its solidity. This stone represents your core truth-the unchangeable, timeless, and solid aspect of your core being. Identify this aspect and name it. Place the stone into the water. Breathe. Hold the salt in your hand, and let it slip through your fingers into the water, saying:
This life and time,
ever changing.
Goddess, may I recognize my truth
and center my life on it.
As time changes me,
may I remain timeless,
fluid, and honorable..
SPELL TO HEAL ANGER
To cleanse yourself of negative feelings today, this spell may help. Purchase some clay or other sculpting medium from an art supply store; it must be the type you can bake in a home oven. To begin the spell, work the clay vigorously. Feel the anger coming out of you, and channel it into the clay. Shape the clay into a small, flat, round shape. Inscribe it with the word “anger” and bake it. When your tablet is done, go into a garden or wooded area. Dig a small hole. Smash your tablet and crumble it into the hole. In a strong voice, say:
Anger and sorrow be gone!
Back to the earth, back to the ground.
All of the anger, all of the pain
Dissolve to dust in this earthly grave,
Never to return again!
SPELL FOR A LOST SOUL
This is a rhyme for communication with your self. It is intended to break down roadblocks in the process of looking within.
Crone of night, in thy abode,
Touch the spirit grown cold.
Hear my prayer, hear my plea,
Send my spirit back to me.
Help me see where I've gone wrong,
Make me wise and make me strong.
Give me wisdom, give me strength,
Lend your powers to me at length.
Blessed be!
CENTERING OF EMOTIONS
Moon Phase: Waning,
Any Day, Any Time, Use as needed
Materials: A bowl of distilled or boiled water, favorite Incense flavour, A white candle, some Earth
Begin by casting your circle as you normally would.
Say aloud:
Here before me I gather the elements of life, Earth, Air, Fire, Water, to remove all negative energies from within.
The Earth grounds me from harm
(rub the Earth between your hands)
The Air blows away any fear
(run hands through the smoke of the incense)
Fire burns away negativity
(quickly run fingers through the candle flame, be careful not to burn yourself)
And Water brings freshness back in
(place your hands in the bowl of water)
With harm to none, I release my negativity to cleanse my emotions, and fill myself full of good intension.
So mote it be
Take the Water and Salt outside and empty it near your door (if in a large city, a park will do fine) and save the candle and incense for later spells of similar need.
TO OVERCOME BAD FEELINGS
-Cauldron filled with filtered water
-Sea salt
-One white candle
-One black candle
-A few squares of toilet paper
-Black pen
Start by filling your cauldron with water and adding the cleansing sea salt to it. Bless the water.
Light the white candle and hold it in your hands. Visualize loving, pure Goddess light
energy. Place it down next to the cauldron.
Light the black candle and hold it in your hands. Visualize the black soaking up all the negativity in your life, in your attitudes, in the people around you. Place it down next to the cauldron.
On each square of toilet paper, write one thing that you want to banish or overcome. Example: my ex's negativity, my lack of motivation at work, my self-badgering of gaining a mesely 10 pounds, etc.
With each square, hold it in your hands and repeat, You have no power over me. You have no power over me. You have no power over me. You have no power over me.
Repeat this until you finally believe and realize that it is true. Then toss the paper square into the cauldron.
When you have done this with all the paper squares, swish them around in the cauldron for one last blast of affirming energy.
Blow out the candles, take your cauldron and pour the water and paper into the toilet and FLUSH!

A CRAYON SPELL FOR SELF ASSURANCE
Gather a piece of paper, one grey crayon, one bright crayon (orange-yellow is good), matches, and a small item to represent yourself (perhaps a pebble). On the left side of the paper write in grey the word "doubt," and draw a cloud over the word. On the right side, use the bright crayon to draw a sun with the word "assurance" underneath it. Then lay the paper before you, placing the symbol of self on the left side. Slowly, while repeating the phrase, "From doubt to certainty, light to mark my way. Misgivings be gone, I'm seizing the day," move the stone across the page until it sets firmly on the word "assurance." Next, take a deep breath and tear away the left side of the paper, releasing your breath as you finish tearing. Burn that side to literally destroy your doubt. Wrap the remaining paper around the stone or object and carry it to encourage confidence every day.
Brigid Writers Block Spell
Items needed:
A image or representation of the Goddess Brigid
A yellow or white candle
A candle holder
The following chant
A need for creativity

While sitting in your work area, hold the candle within your hands and project into it the need to have the writers block lifted from you. See yourself finishing your project on time, without snags or obstacles. Ask Brigid, which is the Goddess of creativity, to be with you. Chant the following three times while holding the image of your finished work in your mind:

I call upon the Goddess Brigid
I give to me, creativity

May words and thoughts fill my head
And project from my pencil lead (pencil lead is a metaphor for pen, keyboard, etc..)

May my writing be finished with help from thee
With harm to none, so mote it be!!!

Now, light the candle, place the image of Brigid next to the candle and start writing. Your writers block will be lifted in no time. Don't forget to thank the Goddess Brigid for helping you along. I have used this spell many times, and it always works for me. But please, feel free to adjust it to give it a more personal flare. The more personal a spell, the better it will work.
 
The Rainbow Spell For Happiness
 
 
 
Take 7 candles, 7 ribbons and 7 flowers, one in each colour of the rainbow (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet).
Tie each candle at its base with matching coloured ribbon and in 7 places around your room, put each candle with its matching flower into a vase.
Open all the windows and ask for natures blessings, and promise to honour nature more, to smile more and to criticise others less.
Light your candles in the order of the rainbows colours (see above) and feel the colour of each light burning into you.
Also surround yourself mentally with the swirling light of every colour.
After an hour, extinguish the candles, untie the ribbons and plait them loosely into a braid.
Repeat the procedure for six more nights undoing the braid each time and retying it afterwards.
At the end of the week when the flowers have wilted and the candles burnt down, weave the ribbons into a tidy braid.
Recharge the braid at an open window one day every month and always keep it in a special place.
This spell asks for everything in general to be good to you, all the time.

Anger Spell

This spell needs to be done alongside flowing water - I suggest in a private
corner surrounded by bushes at the side of a stream. Create your circle. Cup a
black stone in your hands and raise it to your forehead, concentrate and send
all your anger into the stone. Do this for as long as you can until you can do
it no longer, then hurl the stone with all your might into the water and say:
"With this stone Anger be gone
Water bind it No-one find it!"
Place your palms upon the ground for a few moments to earth the power and allow
your circle to fade. Now go home and take care of yourself for you may feel
depleted for a while, but you will be better. Alternatively, you may feel great
straight away.
What are some anger relevation spells?

Symbolic baneful actions are also cathartic actions. They drain and clear
our poisonous feelings and allow our own emotional healing to begin. If we
deny ourselves this outlet, what happens to the grief and pain and rage?
I am part of the All. "An it harm none" is about me too. Release of my
feelings is my right.
At first it seems like an insoluble paradox. But the same understanding of
magic that forbids projection of our bad feelings can open a safe channel
for those feelings. Here's one possible form:
Preparation:
1/ Understanding
Think about the Alcoholics Anonymous prayer "Grant me the serenity to
accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference." People of any religion can
recognize the wisdom in these words. This ritual is intended to ease
emotional pressure. I believe that is a step towards granting all three of
those things to ourselves. If your hurt is ongoing, take steps to stop
it...What good this Circle does you will be temporary at best if you are
not acting on both the magical and material planes... Prevention and
healing are human tasks; to do them is to change the things we can change.
Justice - the evening of karmic balances - is the business of the Gods, and
may take place across a span of many lifetimes. Karmic balance is not a
thing we can change.
2/ Set Up
* You have some decisions to make. 1: Whether you will work alone or ask
one or more trusted friends to witness and facilitate your working. 2.
Nest, exactly what kind of symbolic action will release your feelings? Will
kicking a pillow suffice, or do you need to make a poppet, or will
screaming work? If you want to work with a physical symbol, prepare it in
advance. Do not use anything you will want to keep after the rite or ever
use again. 3: Figure out whether you can cast a Circle to include your
bathroom, or leave a cast Circle for a period of time. If possible, have a
warm scented tub waiting for you. If not, a basin of warm scented water and
a washcloth within easy reach just outside your Circle will suffice. Also,
a ritual meal, including something green and growing, and something sweet,
should be prepared and waiting just outside the Circle.
3/ Procedure
Waning moon is a good time, and the Dark of the Moon is even better. Cast
the Circle and invoke the Watchers in your usual manner. Call on the Crone,
on She who weeds and prunes and disposes of the obstructive and
unnecessary.
Just inside the Circle, like a membrane in an eggshell, cast a grounding
shield. One possible image for this shield would be a black absorptive
chain link fence, supported at regular intervals by fence posts that are
lightning rods. Whatever happens within this space will be grounded.
Make clear to yourself what you wish to drain. Say it aloud, even if you
are alone. Recall what happened to you in detail and let the feelings grow
strong.
Now let go of your feelings. Do whatever will help you to release what is
in you. Beat on a pillow or rip up a doll. Scream till you cry. Don't stop
till you are emptied. Then fling the thing you used as a symbol out of the
Circle.
When you are sure you are all done, all drained, contract the shield into a
tight ball in the center of the Circle. As it contracts, it will gather the
negative energy from the Circle. Ground it. Affirm that you are sending
this energy to the fire at the heart of the Earth to be purified in that
blast furnace and cycled to wherever strong energy is needed. Know that
what you now let go is gone. Affirm this vocally.
Wash or bathe in ritual manner, feeling the last traces of your bad
feelings dissolve away. If others are present, allow them to wash and serve
you.
Rest for a few minutes. Feel the peace of emptiness.
Then invoke the Maiden's energy for new beginnings. Have the ritual feast,
and indulge your senses. Gentle and joyful music would be effective, and
you may wish to switch to a sweeter smelling incense. This is a time to
dream dreams and plan plans. You have removed an energy drain from your
life, and you can.......?
Thank and dismiss whatever Beings you have called on, throughout the whole
ritual. Close your Circle as usual. Do not do any other kinds of working or
worship within this particular Circle.
Follow Through:
The final part of any effective magical working is "acting in accordance"
on the material plane. By doing this we give the magic a channel through
which to manifest. For this working, there are three forms of follow
through, and all are important.
1/ Remember that painful feelings are partly habitual. Stop feeding the
habit. Don't talk about the pain with anybody until at least the second
full moon after the working. This gives the habit the chance to fade out.
Eliminate the topic from your internal dialogue as well. Thinking about
action to change your life is perfectly ok; the problem is reiteration
about the old feelings of frustration and helplessness that impede change.
2/ If the hurtful situation is current and ongoing, continue with any steps
you were taking to change the things you can change. In fact, you will
probably find you have more energy than you did before to devote to your
projects.
3/ Be sure to use some of your newly freed emotional energy to reward
yourself. Take time for friendship, love, and pleasure. The object of the
exercise is to clear space for the enjoyment of life, so start right now.

Ritual for Banishing
 
Depression
 
by: Unknown
 
 
 
Timing: Start this ritual on a Saturday during the waning or dark moon.
 
 
 
Supplies:
 
Goddess candle -- White, once at center of the altar, or two at the back.
 
Banishing Candle -- Black, placed at the left front of the altar.
 
Invoking Candle -- Pink or red, placed at the right of the altar.
 
Incense -- Sage, cedar, rosemary or pine at the beginning of the ritual,
 
changed later to rose or amber. Burn loose herbs on charcoal blocks to do this.
 
Oils -- Use Goddess or Altar oil on the Goddess candle; sage, pine or other banishing oil on the banishing candle; and rose oil on the invoking candle and for self-blessing.
 
Symbol Objects -- Use a black gemstone for banishing, and a piece of rose quartz or a rose quartz pendant for invoking. Place the pendant on the altar and put it on before doing the self-blessing.
 
Matches to light candles and incense.
 
charcoal blocks for loose incense.
 
ritual wand (if used) to cast the circle.
 
 
 
Directions:
 
 
 
Light candles -- "Dress" the candles with the oils, working base to tip, (away from you) for the banishing candle and tip to base (towards you) for the invoking candle and the Goddess candles. Visualize the intent, banishing depression when handling the banishing candle, and invoking joy and self-love while "dressing" the Goddess and invoking candles. Light only the
 
Goddess candles at this time.
 
 
 
Purify -- Start the charcoal block and give it time to heat up. Sprinkle loose herbs of sage, cedar, rosemary or pine on the hot coal and use the smoke for purifying. Visualize the intent of the ritual, at this point visualize banishing depression and emotional pain, while smudging with the smoke. Then light the black candle from the Goddess candle.
 
 
 
Cast circle/invoke a Crone Goddess or Goddesses to help in banishing, and a Goddess of gentleness and peace for the invoking part of the ritual. Try Kali the Destroyer or Hecate for banishing, and Kwan Yin for gentleness and invoking. Use Goddesses for the five elements or these two aspects only, or whatever feels right. do a full casting and invoking to make the circle, or as informal invitation to the aspects and elements.
 
 
 
Invocation -- Say:
 
Dear mothers of wisdom and grace,
 
I invite you here to ask your help.
 
I refuse my depression
 
and choose to banish it,
 
and ask instead for joy
 
and peace of mind.
 
Help me in my work tonight,
 
Kali and Kwan Yin.
 
 
 
Body of ritual -- Focus on the flame of the black candle, thinking of all the things that need changing. Remember fully all the reasons for depression and pain, acknowledge all your anger, all your rage, and all your fear. Dwell on every hurt, every feeling, every negativity. When you have focused them all onto the candle, shout "NO!" and blow the candle out in a decisive, quick motion. Watch the smoke rise from the extinguished candle, and feel
 
all the negativity dissolving in the rising air. Breathe the banishing incense for awhile.
 
Now lighting the invoking candle. Do it from the Goddess candle, and sprinkle rose incense on the charcoal block. Let the light of the pink candle and the fragrance of the rose incense fill you as you watch and breathe them. Breathe the energies in deeply, remembering the qualities of Kwan Yin, or other Goddesses of mercy invoked in the ritual. Ask Kwan Yin
 
for her presence and help. Focus on the candle flame and think of all the good things in your life. Refill each banished item and negativity with some positive attribute; where there was pain before, replace it with love. For every wrong remember something to give thanks for; for every pain remember something joyful. Remember your accomplishments in life, how good a woman you really are. Do a series of affirmations, "I am" or "I have", to list your good qualities and the qualities you choose to become or gain. Continue stating the positives and affirmations untill you feel filled with pink light and the scent of roses.
 
 
 
Self-blessing -- Put on the rose quartz pendant or hold the rose quartz stone. Do your favorite self-blessing ritual slowly and lovingly, anointing your chakras with the rose oil. Breathe the scent deeply and draw it into your body, emotions, mind and spirit. Thank Kwan Yin for your joy and Kali for her energy of change. Open circle/ground. Allow the pink candle to burn out itself, or extinguish and relight it nightly until at least the next Full Moon. Do affirmations nightly with the flame. Continue burning pink candles for as long as needed to remind you of new joy and positive attitude. Repeat the ritual on the next waning moon if needed; it will be needed less each time you do it. Each time, bury the remains of the black candle in the earth, along with the ashes from the incense; visualize your pain being buried and recycled with them. Repeat the self-blessing at any time, and do it often, at least every New and Full Moon. Continue wearing the rose quartz pendant, or carry a piece of the stone with you at all times. Remember you

- From Amethyst's Wicca
Health Pacettino
A health spell that supposedly started in Italy, expanded to Spain, and eventually found its full potential in Portugal. Karanina harvested this spell from the Ivory Coast. This spell brings health to the worker of the spell.
Very Important: This spell is an aid to the well being of the spirit of the worker of the spell and therefore, the individual’s health in general. Under no circumstances should any spell be used in place of proper medical attention from a licensed physician. Persons who are ill or injured should always seek proper medical attention.
You will need:
 Three beeswax candles
 Seven white rose petals
 A pinch of salt
 A white envelope
 A sheet of paper
 A pencil and an eraser
Light the three candles.
On the paper, write your name and the date of your birth. Next, write the health problem you are experiencing.
Using the eraser, erase the health problem as thoroughly as you can--be careful not to tear the paper.
One by one take the candles and drip wax onto the paper, covering and sealing your name and your date of birth.
Take the rose petals and place them in the center of the paper. Next, take the salt and sprinkle it over the rose petals.
Fold the paper, with the rose petals and salt inside, and place the whole in the envelope. Seal the envelope and write today’s date over the seal.
Extinguish the candles.
Put the envelope in a safe and hidden place.
Rising Sun of Hope
An excellent spell to lift one from the doldrums and bring cheer to a weary heart.
At the rising sun, fill a cup with clean, fresh water.
When the sun has fully cleared the horizon, begin the spell.
Stand at an open window with the cup held in both hands.
Repeat the following invocation aloud:
Spirit of the Rising Sun I welcome thee once more
Let this day begin anew and let my heart so do
Take from me my burden and burn it in thy light
Let my spirit deep within move from out of night.
Spirit of the Rising Sun I welcome thee once more
That songs of cheer may soon be heard as whispers in my ear
Let them grow and soothe mine mind, my heart that beats within
Spirit of the Rising Sun give unto me the will to win.
Spirit of the Rising Sun make this happy day
Continue through tomorrow, its path become mine way
Spirit of the Rising Sun these things I ask of thee
To take the old and sorrow
In addition, let me start anew.
When you have finished the invocation, drink the water from the cup. Take care to drink it all.
Repeat this spell as you feel the need

This ritual should be performed somewhere where you can draw on the floor with chalk.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Stay inside the star after you have drawn it.  DO NOT step outside the star again until the spell has been completed.  Don�t forget the matches or a lighter, as you will need to light the candle while inside the pentagram.
Use the chalk to draw a seven-pointed star on the floor about three feet wide, as illustrated below:
 
After you have drawn the seven-pointed star, sprinkle the soil or sand over the star, but take care that none falls outside the star�s boundaries.
Next, light the candle and hold it in your right hand.  Face north and recite the following words three times, speaking them aloud:
May the seven winds blow this way,
To bring good health to stay.
Once you have spoken these words three times, extinguish the candle BEFORE stepping out of the pentagram.
The spell is done.
Do not light this candle again for one year.  Store the candle in a safe place where it will remain undisturbed.

Rich health, tranquility, good energy flow, these I conjure to be mine.
Strength and peace and quietude until the end of time.
Fluid motion to my joints and clarity of mind.
Strenth to bones and flex to muscles, I clame these, too, as mine.

Spell for healing others
 
Light a blue candle and visualize the person who needs healing. When the picture is clear in your mind, target the area of disease and color it bright red. Now visualize tiny workers brushing soft green paint over that spot. Hold the picture until the spot is completely painted over. Open your eyes and chant:
 
I hold you in my heart and wrap you in my love.
My circle of protection descends now from above.
And as I send this energy, all pain shall disappear
And all disease shall dissipate and shrivel up in fear.
The emptiness I now replace with fresh vitality,
so you may thrive upon the Earth in laughter, love and glee.
Bright blessings and good health, my friend, encase you from now on.
I ask that they watch over you and keep you well and strong.
 
Allow the candle to burn out.

They stones are good for headache, for pain in the eyes, against temptations of a fiend, against nocturnal demons, for ague, against incubi, for sexual constriction, for bewitchment and against hexes.
Candle Healing Spell
 
 

Candle Healing Spell
by Arthur, copyright 1998
 

TIME: Full Moon
PLANETARY HOUR: Sun, or Moon
 
 
Materials needed:
Candle to represent person (male or female image candle is preferred)
A strand of your own hair, saliva, fingernail clippings
Photo representing the state of health you wish to attain (can be photo from magazine or of yourself as healthy)
1 small candle in each of your Astral Colors
a healing oil, such as: sandalwood, lotus oil, pine, juniper, rosemary,(or can use a combination, or your astral oil)
a healing incense, to match your oil, or a healing combination.
a tool to use to inscribe sigils on your candle.
Preparation
You can choose to do this before circle, or take the materials with you and do this within the circle.
 

Take your candle, inscribe on it runes or sigils that identify this candle as yours, such as your name, birthdate, sun sign, or if you have a personal sigil or sign that you use to represent yourself. Place your hair and nails on the candle, then, take the other two candles in your astral colors and drip the candle wax over the candle that has been inscribed. Drip the wax especially over the hair and nails to hold them in place. (If you need more information on this, see the file on making your astral candle.) Smear your body fluids onto the candle and then oil the candle in the same manner as dressing the candle.
 

While you are doing this, you should be chanting something like: "I am beautiful, I am strong, I am healthy, Illness is gone."
 

Keep chanting as you wrap your picture around the candle and secure it with more wax. Put this candle on something safe to burn it out all the way, maybe a plate, or extra large candleholder, so that when the picture and other peices catch the flame, this will not be a fire hazard. The candle should be placed on your altar.
 

If you have not done so already, take your ritual bath, and then cast the circle in your usual manner.
 

Burn the incense, and ground and center. You can stand or be seated, whichever is most comfortable for you. Begin opening your chakras and make sure you are properly well grounded before proceeding. Bring the energy up from the earth and feel it circling within your body. When you are ready, light the candle.
 

Chant and burn the candle. Direct the energy you are raising up through your third eye chakra and send the energy to the candle. Now, take the energy from the fire of the candle and feel it coming into your body and burning out all illnesses. Exchange the energy you raise with the purifying energy of the candle. Visualize your healing. Do this for as long as possible, according to your abilities.
 

When you are fully energized, or feel ready to move on, close your chakras, and let the candle burn out. Open your ritual space. Bury any wax left over in your yard. Be sure to drink lots of water also, as this will help to also cleanse your body. Remember, healing, like magick, doesn't take place in a vacuum - you have to do all you can on the physical level also.

Healing Spell
by Tharan Hawk copyright 1998
Timing: Waxing or Full Moon
 

Materials:
 
 
1 clay pot
fresh soil
coleus plant
miracle grow
1 green candle
stones or shells from the sea
1 bunch of sage
Cast your circle and charge all your items for a short while by candlelight. Annoint everything with your favorite salt water.
 

When all items are fully charges, start putting everything together. Line the bottom of the pot with stones, or shells from the sea. (salt represents healing and cleansing.) Fill the pot halfway with fresh clean soil. The plant your coleus and fill the rest of the way with more soil. Spread miracle grow in the top. Light the green candle. Smudge yourself with the sage.
 

Then say:
 
 
As this life grows healthy,
So does my body.
Fourishing and full,
My cells use Karate,
Defending me from,
All ills and disease,
No need for pills,
My suffering is eased.
 

Smudge yourself again before ending the ritual. Then visit with the plant for two more days, lighting the candle each time until it is used up.
 

This is a spell for a bad flu, or condition which may keep you out of work for a few days when you need to go and work through it. Of course, if you want to stay home, just call in sick, and stay in bed, and forget the spell.

Health and Vitality Spell
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cut a circle from a white or yellow piece of paper. Write on the paper the words Health and Vitality. Add any specific health issues you wish to deal with, and in the center of the paper place a bay leaf, a small amount of cinnamon, and three grains of rice. Fold the paper into a packet to hold the ingredients. Take the packet in hand for a moment and concentrate on your healing intentions, sending that energy into the package. Place the paper in a fireproof container and light it on fire. As it burns, say;
"Sacred fire,
I pray to thee,
Release all bonds
And set this free-
That health and vitality
might come to me."
Broken Heart spell
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

Cut a red heart out of fabric and tear it into two pieces. Next, by a waxing moon, stitch together the parts using green thread (or another healing color). While you so, add a chant that you repeat until your work is finished: "What was ripped asunder, let magic restore; return happiness to me, even greater than before." Keep this with you in your wallet, pocket or near your heart to continue the flow of healing energy.
The Fairer Depression Spell
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

When someone gets emotionally sad for no
known reason -- especially a woman -- usually
suspect hormonal imbalance. It can be a female
hormone thing (e.g. estrogen-mediated) or it could
be a generic brain-chemical thing (e.g. low
serotonin). Before beginning any spell work, try to address the physical roots of the
depression -- by doing things to raise serotonin
and to get the old estrogen/oxytocin pump tuned
and oiled. Here are a few suggestions:
 

Serotonin enhancing activities
(may be combined for best effect):
 

* rhythmic motions
    (chewing gum, kneading, suckling, knitting,
    running)
* making love
* getting enough sleep
* taking melatonin to sleep if needed
     (melatonin is a seratonin byproduct that
     may be temporarily low)
* being praised by someone you respect
* being massaged
* moderate physical exercise
* drinking St. John's Wort tea
     or taking it in capsules
 

Estrogen/oxytocin tuning activities
(may be combined for best effect):
 

* being suckled on
* drinking angelica root (dong quai)
     and/or licorice root tea
* having an orgasm
* being groomed by someone, especially having the hair
     groomed
* taking DHEA tablets as directed on label of product
     (DHEA is an estrogen/testosterone precursor)
 

After initiating a program that includes as many
of the above activities as possible, then it is
time to fashion a spell of helpful healing and
blessing. I'm going to make this spell very simple
-- something anyone can do --
 

Because the subject is a woman,a spell
that employs in it a piece of angelica root. Just
as this root is made into a drinkable tea for its
phyto-estrogens on the medical plane, so also is
it used as a power object to enhance the strength
of women magically. A whole angelica root is best,
if you can find one . You work in the
Wicca tradition, so you should "charge"
the root in whatever manner you have been taught,
drawing into it healing power . Next, dedicate the root , by carving her initials on it or her
sigil and then dressing or anointing it with an
appropriate oil, Holy Oil -- or with some Wiccan style oil
that has a similar name and purpose.
 

Place the root in a red flannel carrying bag with
two other things to help her. You need three
things here, and the root is one of them. The
other two things can be chosen based on your
tradition like a lucky coin and a pinch of healing Althaea herbs.
 

Light a simple white candle and some blessing-type
incense . Dress the
bag itself with a little bit of the oil too.
"Smoke" the dressed bag in the incense smoke and
pass it over the candle flame three times as you
speak aloud your prayer (to whomever you pray) for
her restoration to complete and perfect health,
harmony, and happiness.
 

Let her carry the bag on her for bouyant emotional
strength -- and be sure to also follow up on the
practical, physical activities mentioned.

Simple Weight Loss Spell
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

Simple Weight Loss Spell
Timimg: Waning Moon (start just after Full Moon)
 

Preparation: Using an athame (or another sharp item that you have ritually blessed) mark a black candle into 14 equal parts (13 rings). Mark each section with number fives (5).
 

On the night after the Full Moon, burn the candle down to the first mark while meditating, and chanting the following:
 
 
"As this candle burns, so my fat burns.
As this candle decreases, so my weight decreases.
I have complete control over my weight.
My body is truly perfect in every way.
I now weigh a perfect __(insert desired goal)___ pounds.
Every day I am slimmer and healthier.
I am as perfect as the Goddess within me.
Thank you, Goddess, for your help.
This is my will, so mote it be."
 

Do this nightly, burning the candle down to the next mark, until the night of the New Moon, when the candle should be allowed to burn out. It is also helpful to picture your body's fat cells burning off and to feel your increased metabolism and energy. Your body may feel warm and tingly. As the candle goes down, so your weight goes down. You will lose 5-10 pounds over the two weeks. This spell can be done every month, or as needed.
To Ease a Broken Heart
            
 
 

strawberry tea (one bag)     
Small wand or stick from a willow tree
sea salt
2 pink candles
a mirror
one pink drawstring bag
one quartz crystal
a copper penny
a bowl made of china or crystal that is special to you
1 teaspoon dried jasmine 
1 teaspoon orris-root powder
1 tsp. strawberry leaves
1 teaspoon yarrow
10 plus drops apple-blossom oil or peach oil
10 plus drops strawberry oil 
 

            On a Friday morning or evening (the day sacred to Venus) take a bath
          in sea salt in the light of a pink candle. As you dry off and dress,
          sip the strawberry tea. Use a dab of strawberry oil as perfume or
          cologne. Apply makeup or groom yourself to look your best. Cast a
          circle with the willow wand around a table the the other ingredients.
          Light the second pink candle. Mix all oils and herbs in the bowl.
          While you stir look at yourself in the mirror and say aloud: "Oh,
          Great Mother Goddess, enclose me in your loving arms and nurture and
          bring forth the Goddess within me." Gaze deeply into the mirror after
          you have finished mixing the ingredients and say aloud, "I represent
          the Great Goddess, Mother of all things. I shine in the light of the
          Golden Wings of Isis. All that is great and loving only belongs to
          me." Then put half the mixture in the pink bag and add the penny and
          crystal. Carry it with you always [or until you find another love].
          Leave the other half of the potion in the bowl, out in a room where
          you will smell the fragrance. Repeat this ritual every Friday if
          necessary. 
Negativity Releasing Spell
Items Needed  Obsidian, 1" or better in size
 Rose Quartz, size you can carry around in pocket or bag
 

 This is well done during the waning (dark) of the moon, but any time will work. You will want to do this when you are at home alone or somewhere where a great deal of noise will not attract undue attention.
Hold the obsidian in your right hand (I am assuming that your right hand is your power hand....). Begin to think on your negativity and its roots. Trace it as far back as you can.
 
*NOTE* Do not try to analyze the whys and wherefores of this....do not feel guilty for feeling angry at anyone person or thing....let yourself be mad!
 
Feel all your anger and sadness and depression and guilt and all other emotions begin to boil. Let yourself get rompin'stompin' mad! Scream...jump up and down...spit....curse...yell... do what ever it takes to emotionally explode! As you are doing this...focus all of this outgoing force into the stone. Do not worry about harming the stone....obsidian likes to absorb negative junk. When you feel you are 'empty' of the pain, throw the obsidian as far from you as you possibly can.
 
*NOTE* if you are inside, it is best not to throw stones :->. Place it in a brown paper sack and toss it in a river later. 
 
Now, turn your back on the stone. Don't worry about someone else finding it and getting all your stuff....the obsidian will leach it back into the Earth and it will be transformed. Of course, you don't want to retrieve the stone. Once you have turned your back....take a deep breath.
 
Place the rose quartz in your recieving hand (left, if you are right handed). Sit down, lie down...get comfy. Think about the color of the quartz in your hand. Remember that everything has a purpose... and that you are a good person. Remind yourself that this rose quartz is a physical representation of your heart and pour love into it. Tell it all your loves and dreams and hopes. When you are done, place the rose quartz in a safe spot...

Ending Depression
 
Recite 3 times the following:
 

Blessed Mother turn your face,
See with Love this empty space,
Renew my heart with love for life.
Remove from me this pain and strife.

To help speed recovery from an illness, write the sick person's name on a white human shaped candle of the correct gender. As you anoint it with 3 drops of myrrh or mint oil, visualize healing energy in the form of white light flowing from your hands and into the candle. Recite:
 
 
 
IN THE DIVINE NAME OF THE GODDESS WHO BREATHES LIFE INTO US ALL, I CONSECRATE AND CHARGE THIS CANDLE AS A MAGICKAL TOOL FOR HEALING
 
Place the candle on top of a photograph of the sick person and then light the wick. As the candle burns down, focus on the person in the photography, willing him/her to be well again. Then recite:
 
 
 
MAGICK MEND AND CANDLE BURN
SICKNESS END, GOOD HEALTH RETURN
 
Continue to focus and recite until the candle burns out on it's own. (At this point I suggest taking the remains of the candle, wrapping it in clean white cotton and burying it outside, thereby burying the sickness.)
 
Author--Gerina Dunwich
The process of "laying on hands" has been used since the ancient times as a method of healing all ailments and pain. In this spell you learn one of it's easiest applications - curing a headache.
 
Materials: None
 
Procedure:
This works best if you are healing yourself, but it does work on others also. Place your hands either on or an inch or so above the head. Now visualize the head as being filled with with a red light or a thick red liquid. Now visualize a cool blue light as streaming from your hands and forcing the red out. As the blue touches it should soothe the pain. If you're doing it properly, you will most likely encounter some resistance on the part of the red. All in all it may take five minutes or so to force out, but just keep forcing that cool blue light in and the painful red out. As you do this, it may help to chant something like:
 
 

"Goddess I pray,
Take it away."
Meditating on the colors blue, green, gold and orange helps, green being best for me. For candle magick I write runes in green ink and burn them over a green or blue candle. Gold and orange seem to work better in a situation where I can aggressively battle a health issue. Prior to surgery orange really helped me in the courage department. For coping and dealing with pain green and blue work best for me.
Some incense suggestions. The most powerful combination I've tried is bay, cinnamon, frankincense, sandalwood and eucalyptus. That'll blow you away  But for quiet meditation to deal with pain, eucalyptus alone is wonderful. To build up stamina and call up healing energy heliotrope combined with any zesty spice (like cinnamon or clove) is great.
For oil, sweetgrass and sage make a good combination. They lift the spirits and maintain a positive attitude. When you are in constant pain the attitude can definitely shift. I can turn into an ogre if pain is in control.
I also tried frankincense and pine and frankincense and cedar for calming and centering, which helped me focus on visualizing lack of pain. Sometimes visualization is hard when you are in so much pain you can't focus.
Health and Vitality Spell
 
Cut a circle from a white or yellow piece of paper. Write on the paper the words Health and Vitality. Add any specific health issues you wish to deal with, and in the center of the paper place a bay leaf, a small amount of cinnamon, and three grains of rice. Fold the paper into a packet to hold the ingredients. Take the packet in hand for a moment and concentrate on your healing intentions, sending that energy into the package. Place the paper in a fireproof container and light it on fire. As it burns, say;
"Sacred fire,
I pray to thee,
Release all bonds
And set this free-
That health and vitality
might come to me."
Emotional Healing

From: Morrigan
 
 

Light two white or blue candles on the night of a New Moon. Gaze at a photo or representative object of the person or event which you are cleansing yourself of. Repeat this spell three times- What you did has hurt me With a pain that burns my heart I cleanse myself From your cruelty I shall move on Put the photo in a white envelope. Burn it and then throw the ashes into a river and forget about what happened.
Cleansing the Body of Negative Energies

From: White Raven
 
 

You will need the following: 1 White Candle 1 Black Candle 1 Green Candle The White candle is for Positive Energy. The Black Candle is for Negative Energy. The Green Candle is for Healing. Clear your mind and Light the White Candle and say the following: Mother Earth, Fire, Wind, Water and Spirit; I ask thee to Cleanse my body of all negative energies. Light the Black Candle and repeat the same words as before. Then after that Light the Green Candle and say the following: Mother Earth, Fire, Wind, Water and Spirit; I ask the to Free and heal my body from all negative forces. Blessed be!! You must do this in a quiet room somewhere that you will not be disturbed. After doing this sit back, keep your mind clear and relax for 15 minutes. Afterwards you will feel fresh and renewed. I recommend doing this once a week. You will feel a lot better and you body will be healthier.
Anger spell
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 
Visualize a circle of light around yourself Cup a black stone in your hands and raise it to your forehead & then your heart, each time say these words:
with this stone
anger be gone
water bind it
no one find it
concentrate & project all your anger into the stone
With all your might throw it into a lake, stream, river, or the ocean.
"Slvr Dolfn"

Spell To Heal The Earth   
  
 Plant a small tree, bush or local flower from seed. Bless the soil it is placed in, the Water you use on it and allow it full moonlight when the moon is full.
When it is strong enough, take it to a place where it is native and will not upset the ecosystem. Do not plant herbs as they can be destructive.

"Gentle Goddess, might of Earth.
Taker this offering of mine.
Blessings I shower upon your earth.
And heal you in the fullness of time." 
 
Nervous anxiety, you are dead.
Lord and lady, soothe my head.

as I will so mote it beSELF ESTEEM SPELL
You Will Need:
A Bath
7 Green Oak Leaves (Or Bay leaves if these are out of season)
Lavender Oil
A Purple Candle
A Yellow Candle
Jasmine Oil
Purple Thread
The Spell:
Run the bath to a depth and temperature of your liking. Put the lavender oil and oak leaves into it, swish it around, then light the candles and climb into the bath. Close your eyes (but don't fall asleep). Begin to breathe, breathe in a warming Orange light of confidence, and breathe out murky coloured self-doubts.
Imagine a yellow light above your head, which slides down your body, touching every bit of you from top to the tips of your toes. Continue to breathe in slowly through your nose and out through your mouth.
Say outloud:
"I am gorgeous, I am beautiful, I am Goddess"
Repeat this six times in total.
When you leave the bath, snuff out the candles and thread the oak leaves on the purple thread. Then, whenever your self-esteem fails you, heat jasmine oil in an oil burner, light the candles, hold up the oak leaves and repeat the chant.
When the leaves eventually run out, begin again with new oak leaves and new candles.
The oak leaves may be carried with you (in a small box or envelope) in your handbag / bag on (all sorts) of important dates. When touching up your make - up, or getting ready just get out the oak leaves and repeat the mantra to spur you to greater things.
MAGICAL DE-STRESSING
"The hectic pace of modern living produces stress."
This statement is easily the greatest understatement of modern times. Short of shelling out a hundred bucks an hour on the analyst's couch, many people feel there is little they can do to lower their stress levels. The gifts of Mother Nature, however, stirred together with a little bit of magic, can make all the difference.
Deep breathing, the same in-through-the-nose and out-through-the-mouth technique often used to induce meditation, can work wonders. When you feel that the world is closing in on you, close your eyes and spend two or three minutes focusing on nothing but your breathing. As you exhale, visualize all your pent-up tensions being released from you like poisonous gas.
Another trick is to stop and engage in a few minutes of inner-world frolic. Steady yourself with a few deep breaths, then visualize yourself in a fantasy scene of your choice: be promoted to the job you covet or take those extra bows on the stage at Carnegie Hall. Knowing you have this escape hatch to a better place open to you at any time can make even the most miserably stressful situation more bearable.
Grounding yourself can also help. This is an old magical trick whereby we collect and reconnect our scattered energies with the comforting stability of Mother Earth. If you are in a place where you can stand still for a few minutes, or where you can place your hands still for a few minutes, do so while visualizing all your stress collecting in the center of your body, then being filtered out through your feet or hands into Mother Earth.
If you are not in a position to touch the earth, simply sit still and visualize a beam of calming blue-violet light entering the top of your head, passing down through your body collecting all your tension, and then passing the tension right out through the root chakra at the base of your tailbone and on into Mother Earth.
If you are acquainted with personal spirit guides, or have patron deities, you can mentally call out to them to come to you and siphon off the stress. Ask them to place a hand on your head or stomach, or wherever else you feel is the center of your stress, and then place the other hand on the ground. Allow them to be a conduit for channeling away your tension.
If you are one of those people who tends to bring your stresses home and vent them on your family, try a simple grounding exercise as you walk from your place of employment to your car. With each step you take, mentally send your tension into your legs, and each time your feet hit the ground, allow a bit of the stress to ground out into the Earth. Get into the rhythm of this as you walk along, timing it so that when you reach your car, all your stress is gone. Take a few deep breaths before beginning the drive home.
If you find you have trouble sleeping due to stress, try expanding on any of the above mental exercises. If you find you are still wide awake, you might want to try soaking a washcloth in cool apple cider vinegar and placing this across your forehead. This old folk remedy can work wonders. Combine the compress with a foot or forehead massage for best results.
You may also want to treat yourself to a cup of herbal tea laced with ingredients known to produce relaxing effects on the body. Sitting down with a steamy hot drink seems a simple thing, but when you are stressed out and pressed for time, it can be the greatest of luxuries. Try teas of either catnip, valerian, peppermint, chamomile, hops, motherwort, passion flower, or any combination of these to help make you drowsy. Use about one teaspoon total of herbs for each six-ounce cup you brew. Unlike most pills, they are not addictive, they will not harm you if used occasionally, and they will not leave you feeling drugged in the morning.
(EDITOR'S NOTE: Use only small amounts of valerian at first, until you determine how it affects you.)

HAPPINESS POWDER
2 parts Lavender
1 part Marjoram
1 part Catnip
Mix the above ingredients and then sprinkle in a circle and sit within it to absorb the powders energy.
Notes on using Powders:
Be sure to finely grind up the herbs used in the powders.
Starting in the East sprinkle the powder around you in a clockwise motion and then sit within the circle to absorb the energy from the powder. Sprinkle the powder around a candle before burning to increase the candles energy. You can sprinkle the powder on your altar before spellwork. Use the appropriate powder for the ritual. This can be done randomly or can be done in specific shapes associated with that ritual.
Remember that some powders especially those containing Dragon's Blood will stain carpets, clothing, bedding etc. so use with caution.
COURAGE POWDER
Blue talc
Blue bottle
Vanilla (mental powers)
Rose (protection and psychic powers)
Lilac (protection)
Lavender (protection).
Used to give great amounts of courage to those who are fearful or timid. With an oil base, used to anoint purple candles and wear the oil when confronting frightening or dangerous situations.
ENVY AND JEALOUSY POWDER
Blue talc
Bayberry (divine love)
Vetivert (curse-breaking)
Sassafrass (health)
Yarrow (courage and exorcism).
Eases feelings of jealousy when placed on the door of anyone you wish to gain confidence of. Use sparingly. Load in candles to break a pattern of envy and jealousy.
FEELING UNEASY?
When feeing uneasy at work, at home or about attending occasions you're not keen to attend, carry or wear a piece of orange carnelian. Cleanse the stone with spring water, lay it on the altar, and light an incense stick and votive candle. Sit comfortably and meditate with your eyes closed for half an hour. Open your eyes and then direct healthy and positive thoughts to the carnelian, requesting its assistance to get you out of ruts—whether physical, mental, or emotional.
