Luck Spell

This is an old romanichal luck spell and only requires a penny and you being out and about when you cast it.

Simply put you do this:
While out and about you take your penny out and put it in your hand and close your hand, place your hand on your heart and gather energy for a moment (does not have to be long).
Next you will bring the penny to your 3rd eye, i unwrap my hand and actually put the penny to my head but you can keep your hand closed if you wish, and and you think and say "A penny for luck.." if you can say this out loud it will have more impact.
Then you kiss the hand you have the penny in and say "...I give the penny to the faeries for luck."
Then you give the penny to the :fairy: by

throwing it into a fountain
leaving it on a fence post (thats what i do)
flip it into the grass
throw into the woods
leave on a windowsill of any kind
place on a tree branch or the base of a tree


THEN YOU WALK AWAY WITHOUT LOOKING BACK

I dont know if you will call this a potion cus i really just make teas that server a purpose but here gose:

I don't usually add poppy seeds to this but you could add them to aid in sleep, I drink this when I feel i need to connect with my goddess via dreams or if someone who i feel i need to talk to in general who is in the spirit realm be it my guides or dragons or just family that have crossed over

BEFORE YOU GET STARTED
this link will give you a basics of a potion making set up and what it is (tools and such you need)
http://witchesofthecraft.com/2014/02/19/lets-talk-witch-making-magick-potions/
this gives an extra easy way to go about making the potion
http://witchesofthecraft.com/2014/04/09/lets-talk-witch-nine-easy-steps-for-making-a-magickal-potion/

And disclaimer i dont like the wording at times but its easy to understand and simple so thats why i linked them

Dream Tea/Potion

I use store bought Lemon Ginger tea made by Bighlow and you can get it almost anywhere cut it just saves time and i like the added probiotics it gives me
http://www.vitacost.com/bigelow-tea-herbal-tea-plus-probiotics-lemon-ginger

but if you wont to do it from scratch all it is:
Lemon grass (dryed)
lemon peel (just slice a lemon and take about a fourth of the peel)
ginger (two sliced of the root)
cinnamon (2 tsp)
and if you wont poppy seeds
(about 2 tsp each if your only making a cup and are using powders ie mortar and pastel)


Just add them to a cheese cloth and let them steep in boiled water that has cooled for 1-3 mins before hand and let them set for a good 4-5 mins add honey to taste and your set; i usually add extra cinnamon and a little lemon juice if im using the tea bags

I drink this a about an hr before bed


also its great for amping your abilities also

In this case and all cases really i just make it like normal tea but i have a special tea cup i keep for just these teas

This is great. I have everything but the lemon ingredients. Can Lemon Balm be an effective subsitute for lemon grass?

Should have put these in here long ago but havnt so i shall now

The Wiccan Rede (or Witches' Rede)


Bide the Wiccan Laws we must In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust.
Live and let live. Fairly take and fairly give.
Cast the Circle thrice about to keep the evil spirits out.
To bind the spell every time let the spell be spake in rhyme.
Soft of eye and light of touch, Speak little, listen much.
Deosil go by the waxing moon, chanting out the Witches' Rune.
Widdershins go by the waning moon, chanting out the baneful rune.
When the Lady's moon is new, kiss the hand to her, times two.
When the moon rides at her peak, then your hearts desire seek.
Heed the North wind's mighty gale, lock the door and drop the sail.
When the wind comes from the South, love will kiss thee on the mouth.
When the wind blows from the West, departed souls will have no rest.
When the wind blows from the East, expect the new and set the feast.
Nine woods in the cauldron go, burn them fast and burn them slow.
Elder be the Lady's tree, burn it not or cursed you'll be.
When the Wheel begins to turn, let the Beltane fires burn.
When the Wheel has turned to Yule, light the log and the Horned One rules.
Heed ye flower, Bush and Tree, by the Lady, blessed be.
Where the rippling waters go, cast a stone and truth you'll know.
When ye have a true need, hearken not to others' greed.
With a fool no season spend, lest ye be counted as his friend.
Merry meet and merry part, bright the cheeks and warm the heart.
Mind the Threefold Law you should, three times bad and three times good.
When misfortune is enow, wear the blue star on thy brow.
True in love ever be, lest thy lover's false to thee.
Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill: An ye harm none, do what ye will.

The Witch's Creed

Hear now the words of the witches,
the secrets we hid in the night,
when dark was our destiny's pathway,
that now we bring forth in the light.

Mysterious water and fire,
the earth and the wide-ranging air,
by hidden quintessence
we know them,
and will and keep silent and dare.

The birth and rebirth of all nature,
the passing of winter and spring,
we share with the life universal,
rejoice in the magickal ring.

Four times in the year the Great Sabbat
returns, and the witches are seen
at Lammas and Candlemas dancing,
on May Eve and old Hallowe'en.

When the day-time and night-time are equal
when sun is at greatest and least,
the four Lesser Sabbats are summoned,
and again gather Witches in feast.

Thirteen silver moons in a year.
Thirteen is the coven's array.
Thirteen times at Esbat make merry,
for each golden year and a day.

The power was passed down the ages
each time between woman and man,
each century unto the other,
ere time and the ages began.

When drawn is the magickal circle,
by sword or athame of power,
its compass between the two worlds lies
in land of the shades for that hour.

This world has no right then to know it,
and world of beyond will tell naught.
The oldest of Gods are invoked there,
the Great Work
of magick is wrought.

For two are the mystical pillars
that stand at the gate of the shrine,
and two are the powers of nature,
the forms and the forces divine.

The dark and the light in succession,
the opposites each unto each
shown forth as a God and a Goddess:
of this did our ancestors teach.

By night He's the wild wind's rider,
the Horn'd One, the Lord of the Shades.
By day he's the King of the Woodland,
the dweller in green forest glades.

She is youthful or old s She pleases,
She sails the torn clouds in Her barque
the bright silver lady of midnight,
the crone who weaves spells in the dark.

The master and mistress of magick,
they dwell in the deeps of the mind
immortal and ever-renewing,
with power to free or to bind.

So drink the good wine to the Old Gods
and dance and make love in their praise,
till Elphame's
fair land shall receive us
in peace at the end of our days.

And do what you will be the challenge,
so be it in love that harms none,
for this is the only commandment.
By magic of old it be done!

Eight words the Witch's Creed fulfill:
If it harms none, do what you will!

5-10 drops of peppermint

boil water let cool down till you can stand it, add the ingredients while its cooling, put in a bucket or bath or something that you can soak your feet in, soak your feet for 15-20 mins

Skin Softening Bath Tea

1/4 cup ground oatmeal
1/4 cup ground sunflower seeds

1 9in x 9in square of cheese cloth or the toe of a nylon stocking/pantie hoes (some people also just use coffee filterer)

Place the oatmeal and sunflower seeds into the cloth and tie it off with the string, some like to make a handle from the string,
Use within 6 months.
Just toss into a bath as it fills, relax for 20/30 mins taking the bag and rubbing your body with the bag every now and again then placing it back into the water.
If you made a loop handle you can place it on the spigot and let the water run through the bag as it fills the tub.

How To Make Bath Tea Bags

you can make them like the link but use cheese cloth instead
http://kreativecreationz.com/blog/bath-tea-bags/

you can also just buy tea filters

Spell How To
:flyingwitch: things to think about when making a spell :fairy:

* What is it about; what do you wish to accomplish?
Make a statements that states what you are hoping to achieve.

* What are you going to do?
Are you making a gris gris, potion, ect.; Are you going to do something simple or extravagant?

* Research
Now that you know what your trying to accomplish look up herbs, stones, candles, incense, tools that you think might fit with your spell, compile a list of things that are connected to what your hoping to accomplish.
Maybe look up numbers that are connected to your wish and use that number to decide how many ingredients you wish to use.
Also keep in mind that spells rely on symbolism so think outside the box; think of stuff that are personal to you or that hold meaning to you, like chess pieces, dvds, hot wheels, hardwear, anything really.

* Think of the type of spell your making.
Are you trying to gain something or to do away with something? What day of the week strengthens your desire? Is there a certain time of day connected to your goal? What moon phases work best for your work?

*Determine the extent of your chant or if you need one at all.

*Look at other spells people have made and plan your own from it if your feeling uncomfortable making one completely on your own.

*Give 28 days.
If you dont think your spell worked or is showing any signs of working dont give up hope, spells take time. Give it at least 28 days before scraping the spell as one that didnt work or trying to do it again.

to cast a circle
I tend to just cast a mental circle for everything, invitioning a white light of protection around the area i am working

some take their wand and use it to trace the circle to better define the actual circle and act like the wand is emitting a protective light that leaves a trail behind it connecting and making a circle i in which all that are within it are safe
then call on the 4 elements and invite the god and goddess into their space

me personally i cast this protective bubble from myself and let it out as big as i need it, drawing on the elements to help me make it all the way around me in what the Native Americans tradition of the 6 directions:
north, south, east, west, above and below
i get my energy from earth(below my feet), i use air to push the bubble out, i use water to invision the bubble being fluid and moving, and i use fire when i intensify the power of my bubble
after that if im just offering or speaking with the gods thats all i do
if im casting a spell or feel i need to protect from negativity even more with what im working with i take salt and cast a circle around the alter (or on the alter depends on where im working) making sure that there are no places that are weak within the salt and work with my spell
i usally dont include myself in the salt circle because generally i just dont have the freedom to do that because it leads to drama and alot of questions from my grama

this is a general way to cast a circle in this case its for a potion but the same steps can be applyed for other spell work if you wish to go more traditionalish
http://witchesofthecraft.com/2014/04/09/lets-talk-witch-nine-easy-steps-for-making-a-magickal-potion/

Health and Protection Spell

Need
A picture of the person that you can burn
a flame
a bowl or pan that it can be set in once on fire
a permanent marker in black

Image
Image

what you do

You simply cast your circle if you wish, i personally dont for this but i do keep salt water by the area im working.

You are then going to take and on the back of the picture your going to write your mothers full name on the top, letting the love you have for her pour into her name.
Next chose which sigils you wish to use.
I would use the first pics last row sigil two and three "good health" and "healing", then on the second pic use the runic "security" sigil on the first top right hand corner and the binding rune "prosperity and well-being" .

As your drawing the sigils you are going to envision the intent you have with making these sigils;
so for the "good health" imagine your mom is happy and healthy and loving life, for the "healing" imagine her over coming any illness and healing both physically and spiritually that all her worries are no more, and so on till your done with the sigil drawings.

When you are done you will then take and light the picture on fire and let it all burn, never blow out the fire let it go out on its own and if you have to light it again if all of it dose not burn. What this is doing is the flames are sending your protection and wishes of good health to your mother's spirit and spirit guides aiding them and your mother.

When the photo is all ashes and on longer smoldering take and get ride of the ashes by giving it back to the elements/nature for example:
bury it in the ground, throw it into the wind letting it carry the ashes away, any form of running water taking it away such as a creek or stream or sink if you have to even a toilet if your desperate just not if your in an apartment complex or like where all your houses are side by side and go through each others pipes cus then that want work.
i just waited to do it on a rainy day and put the ashes on the dirt in the front yard off the side of my driveway and let the rain wash it away.


Alternatives

You could carve the sigils and your mothers name into a candle but you said you didn't have one
You can write it on a piece of paper but that wouldn't be as strong and i suggest you write your moms full name then "mother of _________" and add your full name to make it more connected cus you never know if someone has the same name as you (cus there are a lot of samantha Chandlers in the world lol).

you could also make your own sigil instead of using the runic ones
heres a simple way to make them just scroll down to Sigils

Random Notes/ Thoughts

A couple of days ago I found this new techno musician and fell in love with a description he left for one of his songs called Stargazing. The description goes
While looking up deep into the galaxies and cosmos on a clear winter night, the stars brighter then ever before the cold wind blowing through your hair, and the most beautiful meteor shower to have ever graced the skies plummeting to Earth, you are suddenly struck by the awe-inspiring sense of insignificance, yet utter belonging within out universe.


I was stuck by the utter meaning and felling behind this. Add in his music and how well it conveys this I have decided to start using this thought and music in my meditations. I have been struggling with my meditations and doing them regularly here in the last couple of months has been nonexistent. This has shed a new light about how im going about my meditations and a deeper form of meditation that I have been lacking. Mediation having come easy to me seemed to loose its appeal and meaning to me.


I have also notices a big change in my general practices picking up since the hospital. I had been starting daily walks again right before I got sick and that was it. Now that walks are not an option I realize how much Ive been ignoring in my spiritual path and have been lieing to myself by thinking that because Im communing with nature and all that I normally do in my walks I was just going through the motions of an old routine that no long holds as much meaning to me as I use to.

Since the hospital I have started things that I wouldn't have been doing being stuck inside all the time and I have come to realize the importance of them finally in a way that I am so happy that I do now. I have been drawing out my book of shadow pages finally giving me visuals for me to learn faster and honestly make me feel more centered in my path not so wondering around. Also with school supplies being on sale I went and got a bunch of $0.25 spiral notebooks and now have them all dedicated to a topic.

I have a dream and meditations journal which Im actually keeping up something that I have never been able to do for longer then a week YAY.

A journal on topics I wish to actually post about my path and tips im hoping will help others like myself such as my hidden altar ideals I posted on here and on my blog.

One strictly for Poseidon and another for Artemis I am hoping to log all my knowledge about them and things that I connect with them and log events that happen with them. I also plan on doing this with my dragons and dragon meditations, I have been so bad a student when it comes to my dragons and I hate how neglectful i have been to them since working on finding my god and goddess and figuring all the things I have since February.

I also thought It would be a good ideal to keep a book on quotes and things I find that invoke meaning to me spiritually or that I connect to personally. This way I can keep them always and go back over them when I need a boost like I have been.


Note ending: Im hoping by doing all the things I have I will keep up some form of daily practice and that my path will be more firm then it has been in my search for what I knew to be my Goddess and what I knew my abilities to be. I cant even begin to describe the amount of growth I have had in the last year and to be honest I hope that my growth just keeps growing as abundant as it has been. I am finally feeling more myself then ever, more open to trying things and more social then ever. I love you my God, Goddess, and Guides and thank you for showing me the way when I am lost and keeping me on my toes when I'm not. Despite all of the hardships that I have gone through in life I know I will always get better and you will always be there for me. Blessed Be.

Song: I Am Pagan
Artist: Spiral Rhythm
Album: We Are Light

I am pagan
And Im proud
I am pagan
Gonna shout it loud

I am pagan
Want the world to know
That I follow the Goddess
Cause she rocks my soul

Dont need your bible

One fills the bill
And it harm none
Do what you will

I am pagan
And I'm proud
I am pagan
Gonna shout it loud

I am pagan
Want the world to know
That I follow the Goddess
Cause she rocks my soul

Don't need your churches
The worlds
My sacred space

Dont need your angels

In their place

We raise the spirit
Most every night
When we dance the fire
In the pale moonlight

Are you pagan
I am pagan

Are you proud
I am proud

Are you pagan
I am pagan

Then shout it loud
And I'm shouting it loud

If youre pagan
Let the whole world know

That you follow the Goddess
Cause she rocks your soul

Well you take your path
And Ill take mine

A little tolerance
And well both be fine

You keep an open mind
It'll set you free

And Goddess bless
So mote it be

Are you pagan
I am pagan

Are you proud
I am proud

Are you pagan
I am pagan

Then shout it loud
So I'm shouting it loud

If youre pagan
Let the whole world know

That you follow the Goddess
Cause she rocks your soul

Are you pagan
I am pagan

Are you proud
I am proud

Are you pagan
I am pagan

Then shout it loud
So I'm shouting it loud

If you're pagan
Let the whole world know

That you follow the Goddess
Cause she rocks your soul

Are you pagan

Are you proud
I am proud

Are you pagan
I am pagan

Then shout it loud
So I'm shouting it loud

If youre pagan
Let the whole world know

That you follow the Goddess
