Hmm, where shall I begin......
Wishing spell from http://www.everythingunderthemoon.net/s ... _spell.htm
State your intention, then say the following:

Ariel begins it. Baradiel guides it. The Chalkydri sing it. Devas manifest it. Elohim wills it. The Fravashi better it. Gabriel brings it. The Hafaza watch it. The Ischim balance it. Jael guards it. Kadmiel births it. Lahabiel aids it. Michael raises it. Nebo ministers it. Ofaniel sees it. Patron angels devote it. The Queen of angels speaks it. Raphael inspires it. Sandalphon prays it. Thrones sanctify it. Uriel strengthens it. Vrevoil reveals it. Watchers protect it. Xathanael patrons it. Yahriel places the glory of the moon on it. Zodiac angels seal it. And Spirit brings it through time and space. So mote it be!

Make a sign in the air of an equal-armed cross using your dominant hand.


By Ravencry:
Spell to forgive, not forget

You will need:
1 scrap of paper
1 washable black marker (crayola or roseart)
1 jar with lid, filled with salt water
sprig of rosemary

On the piece of paper, write the persons name or the situation you wish to cope with. Say " (name) I release all negative ties that you have on me. May the negative be banished, leaving only the memories of good times."

Put the piece of paper in the jar with the water.
say "Like this paper, I remove my hardest emotional obstacle, leaving my heart open to accept all the positive i deserve"

Hold the sprig of rosemary and pluck of 13 leaves, one for each good moment that you wish to remember. Put these in the water one at a time while saying the good moment aloud.

when done, put the top on the bottle and leave it somewhere hidden until the next morning. The name should be washed off the paper. Take the water to running water, like a stream or the ocean, or just your toilet if you have nothing else.

Spell To Relieve Stress

Ingredients
Ginger
Sugar
Sea Salt
Lemon
Cardamom
Chamomile Tea

There are several ways to utilize this spell:

1. Draw a bath and add three chamomile tea bags, a whole ginger root, three fistfuls of sugar, three fistfuls of salt, a teaspoon of cardamom seeds, and the juice of a whole lemon. Relax and soak in the tub.

2. Brew a cup of chamomile tea add a pinch of salt, cardamom, and ginger. Then add lemon and sugar to taste. Drink tea before, during or after a stressful situation.

3. This preparation is used as a massage therapy for muscle tension in the body. Brew the tea as described above, but do not add the salt. Fill an empty mayonnaise jar with sea salt and then pour the tea over it. Shake well. You now have a salt rub to use on specific areas of your body that hold tension and stress.


Tree Meditation
To feel connected with nature

you will need:
A stick of your best incense

Find a tree in a quiet place, one that calls to you. Find a good spot under neath the tree, so you can put your back against it. (Make sure that you don't sit on a trail of ants!!)

Sit with your back against the tree and relax. Feel the tree's energy. Feel your spine become the trunk of the tree, growing roots into the earth and branches into the sky. Feel the breeze rustle your leaves, feel the wind bend you, feel the water absorb into your roots. Feel this for a few minutes. Now, ask the tree for some departing wisdom. (It may take a while to recieve an answer, plants communicate and process information at a slower rate than humans). When the tree feels that it has given you all the wisdom that you need, gradaully feel yourself come back to conciousness. Thank the tree for its time and shade, light the incense as offering to the tree. Find something from around the tree, whether it be a nice stick to use as a wand, a fallen leaf, or a feather. Take this to remind you of what the tree taught you.
A PEACE BATH
Draw a bath for yourself. Pour a tablespoon or so of milk into a large bowl of water and say:
'Water ripples on the breeze...'
Add several rose petals (fresh or dried) to the bowl of water and milk.
Say: 'Thistledown flies through the air...'
Stir the water, milk, and rose petals with the index finger of your right hand. Say:
'Silent as the mighty seas...'
Gently pour the mixture that you have created into the bath. Say:
'Peaceful here without a care.'
Step in. Bathe for as long as you wish.
Let the water absorb negative thoughts and worries. Allow yourself a few moments of healing peace.

TO CREATE CALMNESS AND HELP CONCENTRATION
You need: White candle Jasmine or Pine incense Sprig of sage
This is best performed at night, but it can be done any time of day.
Light the white candle and the incense stick.
Close your eyes and hold the sage close to your nose, and breathe in its calming scent.
Keep holding it as say:
"Calming powers of sage and pine, Add order to this life of mine. (name)
By the four corners, elements, God and Goddess too, If this gift seems fit to you,
Then please grant calmness unto him/me. So mote it be, So mote it be."

Healing Rain
This is a spell to be used when you have body aches. It can be chanted as many times as you want, and must be chanted with belief. When it rains, take a walk outside. Give it a few days to work.
Chant the following:
"Healing rain, mend with might
take away the pain, make it rain.
God's waterfall, absorb within me,
healing my wounds of lethargy, restore my energy."
From http://everythingunderthemoon.net/spell ... -spell.htm
Happiness Spell
Take three cords or strings of various, pleasing pastel colors perhaps pink, red, and green and braid them tightly together.

Firmly tie a knot near one end of the braid, thinking of your need for happiness.

Next, tie another knot, and another, until you have tied seven knots. Wear or carry the cord with you until you find happiness.

After that, keep the cord in a safe place, or give to one of the elements burn and scatter the ashes in the ocean or in a stream.

Color energies are useful in many ways. One of the most basic ways to use color symbolism in magick is to select candles of the color appropriate to your purpose. The power of color may be added at any point in rituals and spells to enhance the symbolism, and thus the power of the spell.

Examples include:

  • Candles
  • Altar Cloth & Flowers
  • Fabric and components for Amulets, Talismans, Dream Pillows, etc.
  • Food coloring choices in Bath Salts.
  • Label/Container choices for brews, teas, essential oils etc.
  • Meditations on colors for reaching specific chakras, or areas for psychic development.
  • Garments for ceremonies or simply on days when you wish to attract (or deflect) certain energies.
  • Colored papers and inks for written spell work.
  • Awareness of colors you select in your decor and environment.

As with most things magickal, how you feel about the color and your aims is the most important guide. If a color feels right to use for a purpose, even if it is not listed here, use it! As shown in the varying and sometimes overlapping associations above, the power and meaning of colors varies somewhat form person to person.

A sample of my latest project:
Image
MY JDOS folders.. The 'folder of Shadows' made me laugh when I realized that I titled it that.
I have a binder of shadows, and a jump drive of shadows. Since the power goes out often in our area , I keep both to be safe.
