New Malachite Ring. In love.

“Invoke the Gods: Exploring the Power of Male Archetypes” by Kala Trobe looks promising. Amazon reviews look very fair and detailed. According to the research, the book has great base material with which any occultist/pagan/wiccan/etc can alter slightly to fit their traditions. I say this because everyone slightly alters Neo-Paganism, because well, we really don’t know much of how the ancients honored the gods. We only know through anthropology, archaeology, and so on, about how they may have practiced some things. Based on the reviews, I recommend the book, though I haven’t personally read it. They way I connect to gods is through meditation and attunement through the study of history. My rites may not always be historically accurate, but they don’t have to be. Magic and Occultism operates on intent, not organized procedures, though they have their place— but that’s getting into the duality of chaos vs. order magic.
“Wicca Spellcraft For Men” by A.J. Drew was a great book, however! It goes in depth about how to practice Wicca from a male’s point of view, and it can really help set the tone for a struggling male who seeks balance in the sometimes goddess-oriented areas of Wicca and Neo-Paganism. Hope that helps. :)
What I sent to this page and was flagged as spam. This page is posting spells and making a mockery of the neo-pagan/wiccan communities, as well as rootworkers and witches [who aren’t hellbent on ego].
“I hope you and your followers know morally that this is the corruption of Free Will.
If one was meant to do something or be something, magic doesn’t need to be made. That would defeat the purpose of Free Will and Destiny; it was meant to happen. We cannot alter the freedom of cosmos, but we attempt to influence it. Such still leaves room for Free Will to be exercised.
Teaching Dark Magic, especially involving Love, is dangerous, negligent, and irresponsible. A lot of you people need to learn a thing or two before you do witchcraft if you think these spells are appropriate.
You can’t use magic to interfere with one’s Free Will. To do so would be disrespectful, naïve, karmic, and immoral.
The fact that this page has 25,000 likes and is called “The Craft of The Wise” and is handing out silly spells (of Dark/Black Magic) to people who probably don’t know any better is highly alarming.
And to the people who flagged my original posts, shame on you. This page should be shut down if it keeps posting silly spells that will have some highly serious karmic repercussions.”
UPDATE: To make it very clear, I’m not Wiccan nor do I follow its rede because I would be Wiccan. I am a Neo-Pagan-based Mystic with a lot of other influences coming in. I would follow its rede by coincidence, as both the rede and my background concur on the Divine Principles of Justice. This post wasn’t meant to scold or dictate how people are supposed to conduct themselves as people should know right from wrong. Magic is metaphysical so often people forget that just because its beyond the physical, there are no rules or consequences. Yes, there are, no loop hole for you. If you stab someone, expect punishment. The same goes for magic. If you do dark magic, expect Karma to greet you. Karma isn’t a belief you can opt out of for immunity like a superstition. It’s a Universal Force which stills affects you just like how if you choose not to believe in gravity, it’ll still be there. You cant go around doing whatever you want and expect for it to be ok. That would be childish.
People should know by common sense that casting a spell to get revenge is the same as punching someone in the face. There are consequences to all of our actions. People with any common sense or morals should know that doing a love spell to make someone love you is the same as kidnapping them, tying that person to a chair, and never letting them go even though they don’t like you and have a desire to leve. If some of you don’t have a moral compass that is geared to Supreme/Divine Love, Karma, Free Will, and Justice, shame on you.
I have finally gotten around to creating several new pages which organize the bulk of Cedargrass’s Tumblr posts. They are divided up into main subjects with whichever applicable categories suit them.
Thanks also to all those who follow my blog and my facebook page! The support means a lot to me. Tumblr is more so my private page, believe it or not. Here is where I express even the obsessions of my soul. Tumblr is a great way for me to access my thoughts, organize my resources, connect with like-minded people, journal, and just catalog my soul journey. I also hope soon to follow more people, but it’s sometimes hard to reach out here.
Many of us have experienced what it’s like to be the victim of psychic manipulation, attack, and black magic. If you’re sick and tired of it, say so, get out your herbs, your oils, your candles, and get to work !! This rite has been heavily modified and personalized from another source, where credit has been given also.
- Rosemary, pine, lavender essential oil,
- Water mixed with Rose essential oil or a floral perfume,
- Basil leaves, fresh or dried for exorcism,
- Cactus barbs or thorns
- Frankincense and lavender incense
- Bowl or wide container
- White candle
- Personal body article, hair, nails, etc
- Black kyanite point or carving utensil
- 2 x, Herbal ritual parchment paper, see here
- Black pen or sharpie,
- Wand and cauldron
- Ground/Powdered sage
- Protective smokey quartz or amethyst geode
- Blood, can painlessly be gotten by flossing a tooth
Burn frankincense while preparing everything. After you are ready, smudge everything with the frankincense and pass it through your cauldron which should have sage in it.
In the center of your parchment paper, draw a large circle, use the bowl as a guide to draw it. Then draw three smaller circles, these circles will be your intention grid, make sure the parchment paper looks like this. It has ogham lettering in the top right, you needn’t draw thee if you don’t want to. The bottom left will be the hexagram, with ankhs all around it. This is where you blood will supply the rite with all of the personal power needed for your intentions.
A drop of rosemary should be added to the center cross circle, to the top right circle, and to the top left circle.
Now, write your intentions on the second piece of parchment and sign your name. Lick your pointer finger and stamp the paper as a seal of approval. Place this in the bowl, with your white candle on top which has been inscribed with a cross, and pour the sea salt over the paper around the candle. After you’ve done this, add in your ice-cold floral water, and sprinkle your basil to cover the surface.
- In the your power circle (bottom left), stamp your blood.
- In your protection circle (top left), place your geode.
- In your victim circle (top right), place your own hair, clippings, etc.
Call on any deities, and weave any sigils, or place any protective stones or amulets near/in the bowl. Take deep breaths, whatever you have to do to get ready, then recite this uncrossing three times, each time louder and more assertive.
Words, some time ago, were spoken at me.
They flew through air of mystery.
And sought to drown me in their well,
Was sent to me, a darkened spell.
For this, those who gave me pain.
Will know their own anger as brimstone rain.
And woe to thee, my spell not feign.
Pain reversed, three-fold to blame.
Shall the fool know only cold,
Frozen in thier tracks, I mold,
To rue what they had sent to me.
Returned to the sender, it all shall be,
For as my toil is poured to thee,
By my own words, I am free,
The uncrossing now true, shall they be through.
Send it all back, for as this rite seeks no further harm,
So mote it be, so mote it be, so mote it be.
So what you are doing is drowning these people from harming you, and once you burn down that candle, as soon as it hits your ice-cold basil floral water, the work is frozen, undone, broken, and whatever intentions you put in there and spoke are carried out effective immediately, thanks to the grid drawn and powered by your own life force as blood. After this rite, take a long cleansing sea salt bath with lavender oil and rose petals and cast a strong protective barrier over you, even add that in your intentions. It’s important to know that you should not cast a circle. You must be bare and wide open, so this rite can uncross all work.
After the candle is done, set aside everything that’s in the bowl. If you had a candle holder, you may take that out along with any other crystals, amulets, trinkets you plan to keep. Set the paper to dry, along with the parchment grid, and burn those later. You may bury the ashes and basil/floral water by a pine tree and leave an offering of tobacco or hair.
Intention parchment example:
I burn you from me all those seek me me drown,
All harmful work and black magic done against me,
Will be uncrossed and returned to the original sender(s).
Might I further more be protected in this way for all their attempts.
For side notes,
We’ve all been there— some of us might even be going through it right now as we speak, aware or unaware. Psychic attacks are notorious for that out of those ordinary feelings in our lives. Are you abnormally crabby? Unexplained health problems? Sharp pains or feelings of something/someone that is out to get you? Sabotaged plans? Work/family misfortunes? Everything goes wrong? You feel psychically blinded and intuition not working? Feelings of suffocation and wanting to get away? Abnormal bad luck? Trouble grounding? Miscommunication problems? Spirit world disconnection? Intense emotions which make you cry or upset for no good reason? Negative thinking when you’re normally positive?
If you’ve said yes or you might think maybe to any one of these, you’re probably being attacked, someone did some bad juju/black magic against you, and you should most certainly uncross whatever has been put over you. If not a psychic attack there are also spells for paranoia and spiritual hypochondria, or more seriously——- you’re stressed.
People conduct psychic attacks and black magic over people for all sorts of reasons— jealousy, fear, envy, anger, negative thought-forms, insecurities, usually really immature stuff. Regardless of their reasoning, it’s unethical and wrong, and typically it’s undeserved. Most times when someone does magic against another in this way, they’re being vigilantes taking Karma into their own hands.
A lot of people don’t believe in ‘return to the sender’ uncrossings/spells because they see it as retaliation or vengeance, which would generate negative karma for them— but I do. See, here’s the thing. While you’re sitting around putting up blocks and shields and grounding yourself an while you sit around waiting for karma and the law of attraction to do its thing, they’re consistently working against you and putting out some serious damage for the ruin of your life.
Is that something you’re going to tolerate while you just put up blocks, and they get away with doing harm to you? You can put up as many blocks as you want and call as many deities as you please— more often than to, these people are using the same deities, and even others who specialize in this type of thing. The way I see it, we’re allowed to defend ourselves, and returning bad juju back to the sender is no different than returning a piece of snailmail back to the sender.
More often than not, those who are badly burned by the very fire they play with won’t necessarily play with it anymore. If I still haven’t gotten you convinced, and you think returning it back to the sender is still just as immature and unethical… Let me ask you a question, where do you think that spellwork goes? It doesn’t disappear because you put up blocks or shields. It lingers around you until that one moment you let your guard down. They will not stop until they see you in ruins.
Imagine it like this: If someone mailed you a bomb, what would you do with it? you’re not going to open it, you’re going to return it back to the sender. Instead of burying it or taking it far away from you, or closing yourself off in an impregnable fortress of concrete and steel around you and inevitably missing out on all of the other great sensations in life, what do you do? Send it back to the bomb makers, and give them a taste of their craftsmanship. They’ll soon stop making those defective bombs and divert their attention somewhere else.
Remember, we have a right to defend ourselves, and we have a right to take action against those who do bad things to us. If someone commits a illegal action against you, you have the right to sue them and make them pay for what they did. If not, they’ll think it’s perfectly ok to do and they know they can get away with it.
Have you ever made a mojo bag, poppet, doll, binding, or any magical charm, amulet, or object of spellcraft that you wanted to destroy, but had doubts on how to properly do it? Perhaps you forgot to include an expiration date in your workings because you were in a hurry at the time or forgot. Things like these can be mega tricky depending on the item. A lot of people will shred, break, throw away, or damage these objects, having consciously felt it has been undone, but an energy still lingers. This is not the case with everything. Some objects, like mojo bags, are living entities, extensions of spirit that has been created. This consciousness has to be properly un-created if you will.
Here’s What To Do
Dismantling magical items is a very painless and simple task, but dire should anyone, say, not properly dismantle a mojo bag, and this also works with elementals that one has created of their essence. The good thing about most magical items is that they already have pre-determined expiration dates simply when one includes moon magic or hasn’t fed their objects with personal power or herbal energy, etc.
- Sea salt,
- Smudge wand,
- Parchment paper & Pencil,
- Cauldron/bon fire,
This is going to be similar to an uncrossing, and you may actually perform one on it if you’d please (click here), but this is going to be rather quick. Refer to the large circle of the uncrossing cross in the graphic on that page.
- For dry materials, dismantle every part of the object in the center on a piece of parchment paper that has the un-cross on it.
- For liquids, in a bowl (glass or wood), let liquid drip into the bowl and then dismantle the rest of the materials in the bowl, place this in the un-cross circle.
- If it’s a metal object or something else that cannot easily be destroyed, refer to an uncrossing and then bury the item in white cloth for earth to cleanse. You may retrieve it when needed if needed. If worried of rainwater, put in a ziplock baggie, mama earth cleanses no differently.
Cover the items in the circle with sea salt, and while smudging everything, recite this chant a few times, fold the paper around it all lightly, and then toss it all in the fire to burn completely,
Smudge, smudge, I clear it all, Erase this being I tell to fall,
Expire this item, uncross with might, And depart of its lasting life.
For it had served me well, I thank, Now its time to draw a blank,
Fire o’ fire, ye of high abbot, Leave no vessel for it to inhabit.
My word my law, I cease this life, Shall it know not more of any rife.
If burned in cauldron, you may take of the ashes and bury them by a friendly pine/cedar tree. Ask them to absorb the ashes and in turn, converting them into their own being, thus ultimately moving forward from the magical item.
Using correspondence charts for the days of the week, the phases of the moon, the time of sunset, sunrise, moonset, and moonrise, and the colors, herbs, crystals, and numbers of all of these are important for magic working. It is true that a spell can be done on any day of the year, at any time, but its success will depend on your manifestation. We witches intelligently aim to harness an energy (magic) that is naturally present, rather creating energy during intensive psychodramatic ritual. We have done just this with our computers, street lights, and cell phone. We have harnessed electricity, a naturally-occurring and abundant energy, to power our modern world.
Here, I’ll teach you how to look up correspondences, what to do with the information, and how to construct rituals for spellcrafting.
Today is Thursday, July 12, 2012. For my geographical location, I have everything set for Detroit, MI. This is where we first begin, taking note of our givens. When we look at a correspondence chart for magic working, we see that Thursday corresponds to Jupiter, which deals with money, prosperity, male virility, growth, attraction, family, and understanding.
You see that Jupiter is associated with the color Green, the number 4 (some say 5 because it’s the 5th planet away, but we’re choosing 4 due to the nature of Jupiter’s calling), its gender is masculine, and its crystals are turquoise and amethyst.
Green is also the color of balance, the heart chakra, so focus all intention and spellwork as through the heart.
Sunset is at 9:08 PM and Moonrise is at 1:13 AM.
We take notice that the moon phase is a waning crescent, so we are in waning/dark magic, which deals with banishing, ridding oneself of addictions, and the removal of bad habits, illness, and negativity.
We notice that the moon is in Taurus, so is covers love, desires, real estate, finances, and money. Take note that Taurus’s element is Earth and its herbs are Rose, Sage, Violet, Jasmine, Dandelion, Cedar, and Strawberry.
We also take note of the planetary night hours after sunset. According to the charts, if you adjust the math, the 3rd hour after sunset deals with Jupiter. Well, Thursday is Jupiter, so we have a double Jupitarian enhancement. So 3 hours after the 9:08 PM sunset is 11:08 PM.
Also note that the first hour is for the moon, so honor her with a white candle, 3 or 9, or one of her herbs, such as eucalyptus.
The herbs that you’re going to need for Jupiter at 11:08 Pm is going to be sage, damiana, black walnut leaf, aloe leaf, or catnip, so in your magic at that hour, light incense, or use oil smells, or burn plant materials in Jupiter’s honor.
You may also take note of the year correspondence of the Chinese Zodiac if it applies. 2012 is the Year of the Water Dragon, and is a yang year, so we expect much excitement, unpredictability, new beginnings, and mixed blessings.
So far, with all the correspondences, July 12, 2012 at 11:08 PM is the perfect time for establishing a money flow, which is a consistent flow of energy providing money to your life in the areas that you need. A money flow will typically last one lunar cycle, and will supply what you need for your intended purposes. Magic can be used for unlimited fortune and fame, as with winning the lottery, but you won’t necessarily get it for the wrong reasons.
Caution with Jupiter though, he expands whatever is present, not the creation of. He is the force which causes the rich to be richer and the poor to be poorer. You cannot manifest out of thin air with Jupiter, only expand what is already present. For this clever spell, we will only be focusing on expanding our flow of positive. For a healing, you would focus on expanding the positive within them, to outweigh the negative, thus kicking the illness out. It’s clever and a perfect loophole for Jupitarian energy.
Construct Your Rritual- Here is where everything is now up to you. Decide what herbs, candles, representatives, incenses, statuettes, and materials you’re going to need, then decide what you want to do. Do you want to cast a circle, call on elements, invoke the deity of the day, or will you simply write on a piece of paper and burn it?
- 2 Green candles, one in honor of Jupiter, and one for the money,
- 1 White candle, in honor of the moon,
- Eucalyptus essential oil, for Luna,
- Rose essential oil, for Taurus,
- Sage essential oil, for Jupiter,
- Wand, pencil, paper, cauldron,
- Mint leaves and wine/juice,
- Cinnamon essential oil, for money,
- Sugar, for attraction,
- Sea salt, for purification,
- Small bowl for money candle,
- Amethyst and Turquoise, as offerings,
- Green Aventurine merkaba, for the money spell,
I call upon the protection of the Northern Earth, the Eastern Air, the Southern Fire, and the Western Water.
In my circle, I call about the great spirit of Mother Earth from below, and the great spirit of Father Sky from above.
Shall all beings in attendance, with love and trust, protect me from all perils in their directions.
I burn this candle of purest intentions in honor of the lady of the moon. May she guide me well through the shroud of darkness into the realm of light. There is where I bask in the glory of High.
I drop this Eucalyptus oil in honor of the fair maiden, the mother, and the crone. I drop this oil to honor her light, her radiance, and the way it fills my being.
I light also this candle in honor of the Taurean Moon that shines above. May it’s loving nature, importance of family, serene pause, gentle gestures, and passionate joys fill my circle and my heart.
I drop this oil in honor of the energy that comes from Taurus. Like rose, it is sweet yet passionate, calm and yet deep, respectful yet romantic, simple yet majestic. May these energies entwine with my workings.
Inscribe on the second green candle a dollar sign, and write bellow it 111, the number of the flow of new energies. Anoint the candle with the cinnamon oil, and sprinkle sea salt around the candle in a bowl and sugar. Place the aventurine by it.
This salt to purify this sacred flame and the magic made by my name.
This sugar to attract the sacred flow, the energy that I direct and grow.
This candle so green, and through my heart, might my woes and concerns depart.
This green aventurine quartz to provide that extra oomph for that which I seek in the realm of manifestation. It is by my heart that I create and weave that which I need most in my life.
This cinnamon to enhance my money spell, should wishes pour in like a bountiful well.
Here now should write out what it is that you desire. You may draw Jupiter and Neptune all over it for abundance and expansion, also money symbols. This separate piece of paper may be pre-written for convenience, and read aloud the the flame. After, it should be folded and burned by the money candle in the cauldron. This candle must burn down naturally.
Take a moment to collect yourself. Jupiter is a strong masculine energy, it being the biggest planet in our solar system. He is the dispenser of rain, the celestial body of understanding, philosophy, expansion, and discourse.
Take your green candle, inscribe the symbol of Jupiter on it, the number 4, and anoint the candle downward from the wick with sage essential oil, then provide the mint leaves as food and wine as drink, and the crystal offerings in front of the green money candle.
Jupiter, Jupiter, Jupiter, Jupiter,
I have for thee drink and food,
And offerings to satisfy thy mood.
I inscribe thy name upon thy candle,
Thy mighty breath that I might handle,
Guide me through the night so pure,
Expand mine workings by thy allure.
I invoke thee Jupiter, I invoke thee Jupiter,
I invoke thee Jupiter, I invoke thee Jupiter,
The money spell having been completed, and its flame still waxing, and now that Jupiter has been invoked, this is where we cleverly ask him to expand what has already been done. If we had done this in reverse, Jupiter would have expanded what we already didn’t have and that’s terribly counterproductive.
I seek a flow, a new direction, in my life outside of strife. The abundance of thee Jupiter on this night— An flooding energy, full of luck, prosperity, and might. I wish to establish the sacred flow, unwavering money for me to sow. I’ve made the seed, and now might you, Jupiter to provide expansion through what I do.
Blessed be what I have done, Might it be of perfect loving trust,
So mote it be, so mote it be. So mote it be, so mote it be.
Let the candles burn down and do their thing, and make the ashes into a sachet that you will keep and take with you wherever you go. Evoke the elements, Mother Earth, Father Sky, thank Jupiter, and uncast the circle. Clean up appropriately as needed.
Three black men of mahakala sit, patiently upon their hilt, to charge the forces that should try to wilt, tethered deep into earth, as I have willed. Three black men sit patiently, to defend this monk so prudently. Foes know not the mercy here, that harm goes awry by Shiva’s spear.
The mighty Phurpa, or Tibetan magic dart, or any ritual dagger for that matter, is one tool that no psychic should be without. Not many use a ritual dagger/magical dart, or even know of them, but they’re out there and they’re one of the most beneficial protection/purifying tools out there, next to my favorite tourmaline wand dressed in pine/coconut oil.
The Phurpa or Tibetan ritual dagger is a trinity-blade which is often meant to be a stake, as if to tether or for example hold down a tent. It is a powerful instrument used in the slaying of negative forces, attacks, entities, and energies. It is a powerful ritual object which has a high vibration, so high that it literally drives out all bad from its path and transmutes it into the polar positive range of ethos.
The blade is often portrayed as having three snakes weaving up the blade with the pommel as being the three heads of Vajrakīla, or Mahkala, the male consort(s) of Goddess Kali. Each head is a different aspect of Mahakala, joyful, contented, and wrathful. The phurpa is seen esoterically as the axis mundi of all realms, the world axis, the axis of the tree of life itself. So it is through this symbolism, that many goals are accomplished.
It is a spiritual weapon, and an implement of great destruction and freedom. It is through the phurpa, or any ritual dagger, that we are divinely protected through spiritual means, and that the trinity of the realms and all life is in our hands to be directed by will.
There are many stories behind the phuprpa, and you can independently research them on your own, but the aim of this post is to enlighten briefly on its past but provide examples for usage and proper conduct.
Today in the west, it is used in Western Feng Shui, house cleansing, smudging, psychic attacks, chakra imbalances, circle formations, boundary establishments, healing, exorcism, negative entity/spirit banishment, in conjunction with orgone device cleansing, the purification of ritual items, as well as the tethering of energy, demons, negative emotions and thought-forms, and even assertively collecting energy and immediately grounding it away. This is almost always done through strong visualization and immediately piercing it directly through soil, as seen above, imagining it spiraling deep into the earth to be cleansed and recycled by the mantle.
With so much of it doing all of the cleansing, it can be cleansed itself in running water and even dressed in soothing, calming oils like rose and lavender, to being dressed in masculine, strong oils such as pine, cedar, and ginger. I like to cleanse my phurpa in my custom-made fountain, which has tons of shells and purifying crystals and a jade Buddha in it. The ideas to cleanse it are really up to the person and what they feel is right.
If you’re someone who doesn’t much get into other forms of Hindu/Tibetan culture, the phurpa is honestly only the beginning to the extent of ritual daggers, and is a superb foundation for the construction of your own magic dart. The concept and esoteric know-how is ultimately born of your intentions.
It wasn’t until this past year when I discovered the phurpa and coincidentally discovered that I had originally created my own phurpa two-three years prior unaware this entire time. I had carved a wooden stake from a branch a while ago out of boredom and creative exploration, and I had kept it around a while before I had the idea to burn a pentacle and other designs into it. Instinctively, I developed this habit of using it to dispel energy from old spell materials and small herbal offerings that I’d lay out on my altar for luck or protection and such, and using it almost similarly to the phurpa.
Now that I have my own Tibetan ritual dagger, I use it often along with my old dagger for its own purposes. Metal/wood have their own symbolism, after all. :)
So what about that photo?
In a glass candle holder, I made a layered nest using soil, salt, herbs, and oils. This is where the phurpa will be used to tether down as well as exorcise and/or ground energy which it has directed. Not always will you immediately transmute negative into positive. Sometimes, you must merely tether down any energy in order to properly dispose of it your way.
For example, if you wanted to really tackle some bad thought-forms you’ve been cooking up over a person that you felt you couldn’t help, and you really want it to stop, acknowledge it all on a piece of ritual parchment, bless it with the blade, fold the note and tie a white string around it, and then tying it to the pommel. Tether it down into your soil/rice/salt, and visualize strongly all of these thought-forms going through your mind as a black/gray light, through the phurpa as visualized as the tree of life, and into the void s a white light to be recycled and freed of you.
After the rite, pull up the phurpa, cut the bond with the paper, and burn it. Keep the ashes and dispose of them in their own burial with sea salt and a prayer of thanks and forgiveness for your thought-forms. With a magic dart, the ideas are endless, like anything in this occult world, huh? but enough of that, let’s get into the layer blend recipe that I used for my phurpa nest— and take note, the phurpa or ritual dart isn’t meant to reside in this soil beyond activity. I place mine in the open on my altar on an agate disk.
- Tall/medium candle holder or dish
- Lavender flower buds
- Cactus soil, or potting soil, anything roots touched
- Dried basil leaves
- Rosemary and pine essential oil
- Tiny crystals, malachite, red jasper, calcite, amethyst, rose quartz, smoke quartz, labradorite, citrine, rhodinite, tiger’s eye, turquoise
- Ground or powdered sage
- Sea salt & crushed sea shells
- Parchment paper and writing utensil
- Cauldron & matches
- 2 drops each of essential oils
- Cactus soil
- Ground sage
- Lavender buds
- Sea salt
- Small crystals
- Sea salt
- Lavender buds
- Cactus soil
- Basil leaves
- 2 drops each of essential oils
- Crushed sea shells
- Sea salt
- Sprinkle of ground sage on top
And at this point, you can choose to dump your intention ashes on top and symbolically stab them into the soil so they can no longer be seen, or you can add them after the first soil layer.
Intention parchment example:
I declare this nest to be the grounding for all workings that come and go by the ritual dagger. Shall all energy bound by my willed intentions through the ritual blade be sent to the mantle of earth to be recycled.
Our dreams offer a great portal for self-wisdom, divination, intuition, insights, and enlightenment. Through history, every culture has placed importance over dreams, from introspection, presentiments, premonitions, and more. People have fabricated ways to recall dreams and even prevent bad ones, such as the dream catcher.
A great way to make the most out of your dreams is to take the guesswork out of your mind speaking to you through spontaneous dreams which you don’t always remember or understand—- it’s time to learn how to speak to your mind!
Dream boxes are wonderful inventions designed for this purpose in mind. The idea is that you write your message down, place it in your dream box, and your mind receives it as you sleep. This can provide all sorts of insights for questions like, “Should I quit my job?” to “Who really should I vote for?” or to “Is my path headed in a wrong direction? Should I turn back?”
The dream box is highly beneficial to any psychic and witch. It can be of metal, wood, ceramics, whichever is nice for you. You can even pick up and decorate a small craft box from any craft store, or purchase dream boxes from Native American gift shops, or buy jewelry boxes and convert them. The key theme here is that it doesn’t have to be big, just special.
One’s dream box should be personal and protected; filled with your energy. It should offset your individuality and be you. It is encouraged that it be placed by the bedside or a night stand where your dreams can be affected through sleep, but it can be on the altar also.
- White, lined, or your ritual parchment paper
- Mugwort, lavender buds, mint, damiana
- Lavender essential oil
- Dream box
- Clear quartz, amethyst, turquoise, black obsidian, selenite
On your paper, write your intentions and what you seek to gain or know through your dream box. Should I leave my job? What does the next week have in store for me? Where is my life headed? May I have insight as to who is causing harm on me? May my spirit guides come forth and communicate with me? I need a burst of creativity, what epiphany can I know? When will my mother get better in the hospital?
Your questions and often just mere thoughts can be endless and whatever you choose. Dream catching is all about speaking with the subconscious, the Akashic Records, your guides, or just anything. When I am upset or need to get through some emotions, I write up my petition, and ask the box to show me, through my subconscious and dreams, what I need to know to help me grieve or mend my ailments.
Whatever the reasons, write the petition, officiate your request with your signature, be it blood or ink or energy, line the box with lavender essential oil if you haven’t already done so, place in your herbs and crystals, which should be charged prior with their respective intentions, and fold that piece of paper right up and place it neatly into your box.
I have found that this method of catching dreams via the box is much more useful and effective than the typical hanging catcher, which is really only designed to prevent/trap negative dreams rather encourage self-intended ones.
A level of lucid dreaming can certainly apply to the dream box method. It is also crucial in your dream box endeavors to have practiced the art of dream recall. I find often that I receive, but fail to recall, so therefore, I’ve wasted away great insights. A good witch always keeps a dream journal nearby or a piece of paper for recall. It is through our dreams that much of our waking world is analyzed and reflected back to us for the learning and enlightenment that we were unable to fully focus on. Meditation thus aims often to accomplish this as well.
Don’t be afraid to write several pages to your dream box, as I have before, and have woken up with a fresh, new slate. It has its own magical working over you, and seeks to heal, guide, console, and enlighten.
Happy dreaming, and good night!
To the keepers of the Akashic Records,
I petition the right to gain access to my records. I seek wisdom regarding what aspects of my life I should place my main focus on. I wonder if I should leave my career for a different one or go back to school for another degree.
May the records of past, present, and future assist me in my dreaming, and may these records be authentic and unaltered in any way. Should they not come unaltered, allow me not to be deluded.
Protection spellcraft can be very tricky depending on the scenario at hand. It is always good to know a broadly generalized ritual for protection of all sorts. This spell is a fast way to bring in guaranteed protection, but for more specific scenarios, it is suggested that further spellwork regarding the unique form of desired protection or defense be sought.
Necessities- Those in bold are highly suggested, but not specifically necessary or crucial for the effectiveness of this spell. Spellcraft is 80% intention.
- Snowflake Obsidian, Amethyst, Clear Quartz, Red Jasper, Hematite, Tangerine Quartz, Smokey Quartz. Choose one or more of the following; use only 3-4 as not to crowd crystal energies
- Black candle & matches & tobacco as offering to sacred flame
- Pine, cedar, lavender, sage, rosemary, or clove essential oil
- Sea salt
- Cauldron, wand, & broom
- White paper & writing utensil or dragon’s blood inkwell and quill
- Chamomile tea bags
Prior to ritual, your white paper should have been soaked in chamomile tea for staining and essential oils should have been added to the mixture. The tea and oils will infuse with the paper. All items should be thoroughly cleansed/smudged with sage/cedar/juniper by passing them through the smoke. Prior to ritual, you should also thoroughly smudge yourself; take in the smoke through each nostril and the mouth to ensure internal smudging also.
On a Tuesday evening, gather all of your smudged materials into your area which should be swept by your smudged broom, and cast the sacred circle with sea salt that has been anointed with the intent of the essential oil or oils chosen. This can be done on carpets/wooden floors by setting up a four-point bowl of salt for each direction and thus etherically casting the sacred circle with the energy of your wand. Call your elements and protecting deities who follow, and especially Mars.
On your altar, or tabletop before you, anoint the candle from the wick down to symbolize protection coming in, and then anoint the candle from the bottom to the wick symbolizing negative work or harm against you being banished outwards by the protection that has come in. Hold each crystal in your dominant hand and gently squeeze to awaken them, and place your crystals around this candle. Ask these friends to assist you and thank them, along with thanking your deities, Mars, guides, oils, and so forth.
Now, envision a white shroud of defending light coming from your deities, spirit guides, crystals, and/or elements around the unlit black candle and light the candle. See this white shroud growing and expanding to consume you and the inner boundaries of your sacred circle—- You are pure and your aura is pure and your thoughts are pure.
Write on your parchment/paper your intentions and what/who you need protection from. As the candle burns while you write, this symbolically represents the gradual force of defense and protection that is going to be supplied to you in each word and thought you manifest. Allow the chamomile, the oils, and crystals to aid in contributing their effective energies.
When you are done writing, fold the piece of paper loosely and with your strongest emotions and feelings of your intentions, light the parchment, and place it in the cauldron. As you do this and while it burns, repeat this chant three times while keeping in mind what you wrote on the piece of paper:
Anointed candle burning down,
To welcome Mars upon my ground,
Words intended, stone knows not weak,
I banish evildoers who drown me seek.
Thrice I tell, my words to slay,
Invincible will I be, when it comes my way.
By the power invested in me,
And it harm none,
So it will be.
