Purple Light Spell for Progress and Ambition
All you need for this is a purple candle. Purple promotes ambition, progress,
power and strengthens willpower. As you light the candle, say:
"This light is burning to help me achieve (you may add what it is you want to achieve here). Its protest
is small but holds great power. For only it can push this power up into the Loving hands of the Goddess (you may wish to name
a specific Goddess). I am, like this candle, small, but my intentions and ambitions are great, and with perseverance. I will
get there. Goddess, help me to achieve, to never lose sight of my dreams. So Mote It Be."
Focus on the flame of the candle. Think of all your ambitions and dreams. Imagine that the flame is beginning
to be pushed up, and into the hands of the Goddess. Now imagine that the flame is pulling all your energy into it. As
your energy is soaked into the flame, it (the flame) turns purple. The more energy that is pulled in, the deeper the color
becomes. Imagine a long purple ribbon flowing out of the flame, and into the hands of the Goddess.
Take a deep bowl/cauldron of water and place it in your ritual space (a
room or place you work ritual in or anywhere you cast a circle).
Place 3 black candles around you but not too close.
Place these herbs in the water (it is best if you use very hot/boiling water in the cauldron for this)
-burnt parchment with wish/spell/request written on it
Allow these herbs 5 minutes to "brew". Stir this if you wish. Strain any herbs still floating off the top
but leave all others in the cauldron.
Light some incense heavy in Jasmine and try to get some of the smoke to touch the water by waving your hand
over it. Place a clear quartz untumbled (not smooth) in the cauldron.
Now light the candles and relax. Feel the relaxation begin from your toes and travel all the way up your
body to the top of your head (crown chakra).
Take as long as you need to in order to fully relax.
Now sit up and look into the cauldron. Relax. If images try to flood your
mind, recognize them and put them to one side. Now gently allow your mind to open. If you had a question,
make sure the ashes have been throughly mixed in the cauldron so you will now be open and recepting to the answer you seek.
Try to just let the images come without trying to understand them. If you have a dream diary, or large book of shadows, write
the images in there.
Spell of the Cleansing River
This spell is to be used to wash away bad memories and cleanse the mind of sorrow and pain. You must obtain
two bowls of water from a river or stream and a small, smooth stone from its bed. The bowls should be of equal size and each
A solitary candle should be lighted and the bowls placed on either side of it. Hold the stone in your left hand
(Note: Do not touch the stone with your right hand again until instructed to do so). Bring to mind those memories you wish
to be diminished and finally swept away. With your left hand, the stone need be passed through the candle’s flame whilst
the following words are spoken aloud:
Into thee my memories pass, sorrow, pain and fear
And with thy washing clean
made to disappear.
Place the stone in the bowl to your left and rub the stone as if cleaning it, using only your left hand.
Remove the stone and repeat the following invocation:
Spirit of the River, as with this stone
So, cleanse my mind and
make my memory smooth
Allow life to pass as the water of thy river
Passes over the tumbling stone until it tumbles no
But rests and settles
Freed from the current.
Move the stone to your right hand and place it in the bowl of
water to your right. Allow the stone to lie at the bottom of the bowl. With your right hand, gently swirl the water in the
bowl. When the water stops moving, extinguish the candle, remove the stone from the bowl using your right hand, place it on
a piece of clean, fine cloth and allow it to dry in the air. When thoroughly dry, the stone should be placed under your pillow
whilst you sleep. This practice should continue until your memories have faded sufficiently to suit you.
