To Make A Charm for Control

TO MAKE A CHARM FOR CONTROL

 

Special Tools:
One red candle, One white candle, A small piece of white paper, Protection oil (pre-made or homemade), Ink pen, Red ribbon
Cast the circle. Set a white candle alight on the left to represent the Goddess and a red candle alight on the right to represent the God. Place materials for the charm between the candles. Using the protection oil, with the index finger of the right hand, draw a pentagram in the middle of the paper while saying:
“With the seal of this pentagram I request this charm be used for protection and authority over those I am with today.”
Using a pen, in the center of the oil-drawn pentagram, draw the rune Algiz,  (the rune of protection). Say:
With this rune, Algiz, I request this charm be used for protection and control over all I do”.
Now seal it but If you’re doing the ritual for someone else, hand him/her the piece  of paper and tell him/her to concentrate on the rune and what it means and ask  aloud for what you want. Then to seal those energies into the charm, tell him or her:
“When you are ready, roll the paper up tightly,  lengthwise and give it back to me.”
When the charm is handed back it is wrapped three times with a red ribbon sealed with wax dripped onto it (use a ring or seal if you have one or draw a symbol like the 3 pointed star in the hot wax pool to seal and then tie the ribbon into a bow. Consecrate the charm with an element of the God, fire, and an element of the Goddess, air (the smoke from the candles). Hold the charm over the red candle of the God and say,
 
“I consecrate you in fire for (name)
so that he/she can defend and protect
him/herself/ myself with the powers
he/she/ I has (have).
Hold the charm in the smoke of the white candle of the Goddess and say:

“I consecrate you in air for (name)
so that he/she I can defend and protect
him/herself or self with the powers
he/she (I) has (have).”

Tightly clasp the charm in both hands, the right hand around the charm and the left over your right.
Concentrate on the charms task. Seal the left end of the charm with white wax and right end with red wax. The charm is complete and given to the intended person or kept by you if you make it for yourself. Close the circle.

Protection Charms

PROTECTION CHARMS

Mistletoe, also known as golden bough, carried in a little hand sewn cloth bag is a traditional Celtic method of protecting the self and is also used by the followers of the magic from America’s South.

Marjoram or wild oregano is believed to absorb dangerous negative energies when powdered and sprinkled about the home.

In Italy the followers of Italian witchcraft or stregheria make this herb into a tea and add it to the wash and scrub water to protect the home and its inhabitants.

Cuban and Puerto Rican followers of the folk religion known as Santeria regularly burns brown sugar, a pinch of sulfur and garlic powder on charcoal within their homes to cleanse them of any negative energy. When the home has been cleansed it is protected by praying to Santa Barbara, the saint of protection, by the light of a red and a white candle.

A pinch of sulfur powder and cayenne pepper carried in a little brown paper pouch upon which a sword has been drawn, can be carried to ward off hostile words and deeds.

Plain bluing (used to whiten clothes in the wash) is said to ward off evil spirits in the magic of America’s South. The bluing is generally carried in a little blue paper pouch. When a little sulfur and blue metal stone (the type often used in the process of making concrete) are added to bluing and carried in a blue cloth pouch, the charm is said to simultaneously ward off evil and attract lucky energies to the bearer.

Mirrors are said to frighten away dark spirits and tiny pieces of silvered glass are often sewn into Indian cotton dresses as are bells which are also used for this purpose. A tiny silver bell worn about the neck is a very potent protective charm as evil spirits cannot abide the sweet ring of any bell.

Travelers are especially in need of protection when in a foreign land. A tiny mirror smeared with a clove of garlic and placed beneath the bed is said to protect the sleeper when away from his or her own home.

The mirror may also be carried on one’s person for this same purpose.

Turquoise Protection Amulet

TURQUOISE PROTECTION AMULET

 

The ancients regarded turquoise as a powerful magickal aid to ward off misfortune, illness, and the evil eye. You can use turquoise to make your own amulet for protection.

To begin, during the waxing Moon take a piece of blue turquoise or an item of blue turquoise jewelry and hold it in your hand for a moment. In your mind’s eye, picture a blue light surrounding you. Hold the stone to your heart, and breathe on it to charge it with your power, saying:

“Stone of blue, surround me with protective energy. 
I am protected by your soothing blue light.”

Carry your turquoise with you or wear it as often as you can.

A Spell to Cast When You Feel Threatened

A Spell to Cast When You Feel Threatened

We all go through times when we feel that we are under threat, perhaps at work when schedules are tight and tempers are about to snap. Or maybe in the home when tensions are making themselves felt, creating a chill in the air. This spell, which calls for excellent visualization skills, protects you by forming a crystal shell around you, protecting you from the bad vibrations of ill temper.

You will need:
A clear crystal of quartz or any favourite one that is full of clear light

Place the crystal on a table where it will catch the sunshine. Sit at the table and breathe in deeply through the nose. Hold the breath for a moment or two before exhaling through the mouth. Repeat this several times, absorbing the light cast by the crystal as you inhale and exhaling any negative feelings, doubts and darkness.

After a minute or two, stand and begin visualizing a ring of crystal rising around you, from your feet upwards, getting higher and higher with each breath you take.

When the crystal ring is above head height, see it close over you, forming any shape in which you feel comfortable to be enclosed – a pyramid perhaps, or maybe a dome.

Still breathing deeply, feel the crystal form a floor beneath your feet. Stretch your arms and feel your fingers touch the sides. Look upwards and see the dome or pyramid point. If you can, see yourself from outside the protective crystal in which you have surrounded yourself.

Now say:

Within this crystal,
I am safe from negative thought,
And will be so,
whenever I return to it.
And let it be done,
that it harm no one.

When you feel it is right to do so,return to normal breathing and see the crystal open to allow you to step outside it, safe in the knowledge that you can return to it whenever you need to.
Those who have used this spell find that keeping a crystal in the house, office, or wherever else they think they may need protection from negativity strengthens the spell’s potency.

A Spell for Those Who Are Lonely

A Spell for Those Who Are Lonely

Have you moved to a new location and have yet to meet the sort of people you are inclined to make friends with? Or maybe shyness is stopping you going out and making friends? This spell should help.

You will need:
A piece of scrap paper
A piece of parchment
A pen
An orange candle
An empty hurricane lamp
A bolline or burin
A jar
Salt

Take some time to write down what your personality traits are, your likes and dislikes and a few sentences that summarize your character. Now précis what you have written in as few words as possible, but retaining their essence, and write these on the parchment. The reason for keeping the words to a minimum is that now you inscribe them onto the candle.

Fill the jar one third of the way up with salt and bury the rolled up piece of parchment in it before sealing the jar and putting it in as safe a place as possible near your bed.

Before you go to bed, put the inscribed candle into the hurricane lamp and light it. Make sure that it is in a safe place, and that if you have a cat or dog, they are kept out of the bedroom as accidents can happen.

Focus on the flame seeing how much better your life will be when new friends have come into it. Say something along the lines of:

Help me, please, to make new friends,
So my loneliness will be at an end.
And let it be done, that it harm no one

As you drift off to sleep, see what you have inscribed on the candle drift out of the room, through your house and out into the world. Waken confident that your loneliness will soon be over. And now for the difficult part. Making new friends is a two-way process. You can’t just sit there and wait for the phone to ring. Make the effort. Go out, even if it’s just to sit in a coffee shop with a good book, and let the magic work for you.

A Spell to Cast When a Pet Dies

A Spell to Cast When a Pet Dies

Non-pet owners often find it hard to understand the huge sense of loss that is experienced on the death of a much-loved pet, especially a dog. They simply don’t understand that the unconditional love a pet often displays towards its owner creates a bond that, when it is broken, can never be replaced. If you have been affected by such a loss, don’t try to contain your grief: bottled-up grief grows and grows until it can become quite unbearable. This spell should help ease your sense of loss.

You will need:

Three small brown taper candles
Rosemary essential oil
Something that reminds you of your pet – a lead perhaps, or a collar

Anoint the candles with the oil before lighting them and focusing on the three flickering flames, conjuring up in your mind’s eye some of the happy memories that you have of your dead pet. Now, holding the memento in both hands, say aloud some words of thanks for the companionship and friendship it brought into your life before saying that now is the time to say a final farewell. See the candle flames grow as you say ‘Goodbye!’ Don’t snuff out the candles (that’s why they should be small).Rather, focus on the flames getting smaller and smaller, seeing your grief diminish with them.

And when they die, know that your grief has died with them.

Finish the ritual by saying:

Be at peace,
And blessed be.
And let it be done,
that it harm no one.

And remember that it is your grief that has gone, not your happy memories of your much-loved pet.

Hot Foot Spell

Hot Foot Spell

The purpose of the spell, why you do it, is to get someone off your back. The intent is not to harm someone but to make them go away and leave you alone. This is not, however, intended for petty grievances. This is a serious spell and if it backfires it can make you go away.

You Will Need:

Hot Foot Powder (available in occult supply stores)
bowl to hold powder
small jar
4 black altar candles (altar candles are short – about 3 inches long)
2 white altar candles to represent the Goddess and God
drum or other rhythm instrument (or clap your hands)

Cleanse and purify your altar area. Set up your altar for charging magickal tools. Arrange the four black candles for lighting purposes and if you want, drape the altar in black, wear black, and otherwise dress up the area.

Pour a small quantity, about a spoonful, of the Hot Foot Powder into the bowl and place it on your altar. Get comfortable in front of the altar, you’re going to be there for a little while.

Put the white candles on either side of the bowl and light them, while focusing on your grievance. Get a good rhythm going – beat that drum, shake that rattle, clap those hands, beat that floor, whatever – and make it an urgent sort of beat, the sort that makes you want to run. As you do this, chant:

You shall rise, you shall rise
You shall walk and you shall fly
Out of my life and away Onward Outward Away Be gone!
And trouble me no more I give you no power
You have no power
No power Over Me!

Keep repeating this chant and get really worked up. Feel that power and anger rising up. Keep repeating the chant until the candles have burned almost completely down, then grab that bowl full of Hot Foot Powder and send all the furious energy into it. Visualize that powder just bubbling and boiling over with your emotion. When the fury is in the powder pour the powder into the small jar and close up tightly. Be sure to ground yourself before leaving the Circle.

Now, take that charged powder and lay it in the path of your enemy. Make sure you aren’t seen doing this. Pour it into your hand, then with a strong puff of breath blow it over an area your foe walks over regularly. This spell is specific to one person, so don’t worry about it affecting other people who cross over it. Hotfoot Powder is very fine, and if you only use a spoonful it shouldn’t be visible on a floor. If it is, it will look just like dust.

A Spell to Solve Problems

A Spell to Solve Problems

Talking to yourself about your problems may sound like the first step to a date on the psychiatrist’s couch, but doing so often helps you to put things in perspective and see problems in a new light that suggests a solution.

On a suitable day of the week, decorate your altar with things appropriate to your problem. For example, if you have a problem in the office, green would be a suitable theme and Friday a good day on which to work; some birch leaves or twigs (if you are planning a new beginning), some nasturtium (if you have been struggling, no matter how hard you have been working) and a crystal of tourmaline (the magic properties of which include friendship, prosperity, business and protection) will all strengthen the magic. And don’t forget to burn a suitable essential oil in an oil burner and to lay your favourite charm, talismans and the like on the altar.

When everything is in position and you are ready to make your magic, simply say:

Powers I believe in be with me.
Powers I believe in talk to me.
Powers I believe in help me see,
The answers to my problem.
And let it be done, that it harm no one.

Now listen to the voices in your head. Answer them, aloud, in your own, everyday words. Don’t feel self-conscious. No one is going to eavesdrop. You should find that the way ahead slowly forms itself, and when the magic making is at an end, remember the words of an old Chinese proverb:

The longest journey starts with a single step.

Don’t be afraid to take it.

Banishing Grief Spell

Banishing Grief Spell

 

This spell is said to help one let go of painful feelings of grief. It is for those times in life when it seems impossible to feel joy again, such as after losing someone close to you.

Items Needed:
A smoky quartz gemstone, bowl of water, three tablespoons of sea salt
The Spell:
Begin by holding the stone in your power hand. See your grief in your mind’s eye. Visualize the grief moving from within yourself and through your hand to the stone. As you do this, say:
Banishing stone,
Fill yourself with my grief,
so that I may feel joy again,
So be it, blessed be!

Stirring counterclockwise, mix the sea salt into the bowl of water, then add the smoky quartz stone. Swish the stone around three times in a counterclockwise motion. Leave the stone in the water for a few minutes, then take the stone outside and safely throw it as far as you can away from yourself.

A Spell to See a Rival on Their Way

A Spell to See a Rival on Their Way

All’s fair in love and war, and as no one is actually harmed by this voodoo spell it’s included in this grimoire. Start this spell after the full moon has risen.

You will need:
A new, small glass bowl A cup of stagnant water Two teaspoons of vinegar Some ground angelica Lime juice A wooden spoon

On the night when the moon starts to wane take all the ingredients outside and mix them in the bowl with the wooden spoon. When everything is thoroughly mixed, hold your face close to the bowl and say something along the lines of:

I’m the man/girl **** wants to love. We go together hand in glove, And so I want you to know, The time has come for you to go. And let it be done, that it harm no one.

Now spit into the mixture and, unseen, make your way to your rival’s house. Pour the liquid on his or her front step, repeating the words of the incantation as you do so. Repeat the ritual seven nights in a row.

The spell has its origins in voodoo tradition and there are several reports, from Hispaniola and other areas where voodoo is respected, of two young men, bowls in hand, making their way to one another’s houses under cover of darkness!
