Spells

The first step to expanding your reality is to discard the tendency to exclude
things from possibility.

Everything in the heavens and earth has an energy (a magickal force or a baraka) When casting a spell, we
select objects by their corresponding energies and match them to our intent. Working with herbs is an easy way
to apply energy correspondences and every Kitchen Witch knows that even the most common culinary herb has a
magickal property. Parsley is used for fertility and thyme for clairvoyance. While the French regard their food as
"The food of Love" It's actually the Italians that steps up to the magical index: Basil, Marjoram, Rosemary and
Thyme are all herbs with magical properties used to promote affection. One of the easiest love spells to work is
to serve up a nice Italian meal incorporating these herbs into a sauce. As you make the sauce firmly hold your
intention in your mind. Set the table with roses and a pink candle dressed in vanilla essential oil. Serve your
love a plate topped with your special sauce.

You can also take a cleansing bath before your date and steep the water with rose, jasmine, rosemary or
lavender. Then before you dress, As you prepare for your 'date', close your eyes, take a deep breath and turn
your attention inward. Hold in your mind the image you desire and allow it to manifest by holding the knowledge
that you deserve what you desire...

" I enter the flow of All That Is
I am filled with love. I am love...
I forgive and release all negativity
as I draw the best to me
I am filled with love...
Bless me Goddess, with a love that's true
I am open. I am love.... I am kind....I am love...
I am happy... I am beautiful...I am loved
Love emanates from me...I radiate love...I am a Goddess of Love.
Happiness shall reign in my home and in my name.
I am Love
Thanks be to thee
So mote it be

Meditate at least ten more minutes holding the picture of what you desire. Now smile and breathe deep.

A few herbs, resins and oils are deemed essential and should always be kept in supply:
Frankincense and
Sandalwood can be used to boost the workings of any spell. Both are potent incenses with protective qualities.
Burn to increase feelings of safety and to banish negative energy.
Dragon's blood is also a notable resin used
to bind good fortune to any spell's outcome.
Basil oil promotes household harmony. Bergamot not only protects
the home but attracts prosperity in all areas of life.
Rosemary is essential in purification and healing spells. It
is also an ingredient in love sachets.
Mugwort increases psychic powers. Drink a cup of mugwort tea to enhance
clear seeing, a cup before bed will bring prophetic dreams.
Galangal oil is used to strengthen psychic powers
and break evil or malevolent spells. Carry a piece of Galangal root in your pocket to help a job hunt be more
successful. Use for any spell related to legal issues, family disputes and whenever you want to have justice on
your side. Put a piece of galangal in a green mojo bag with three golden coins and angelica root to make a
wonderful amulet for children who are under the stress of divorces. Having trouble sleeping? Fill a Charm bag
with
Hops, Vervain and Lavender and hang from your bedpost to promote restful sleep. Calm your spirit by
soaking in a
Lavender scented bath.

Common plants found in your yard also have magickal energies. Roses are used in love spells. Common Nettle
can be used to reverse hexes. If someone sends you a poppet, simply cut it open and stuff it with nettle to
nullify its working. Sprinkle nettle around the outside of your house to prevent unwanted guests. Rue exorcises
all negativity and is wonderful to help manifest your circle. Simply make an infusion of Rue, cool and strain and
add nine drops of morning dew to 1/2 cup infusion and sprinkle around the circumference of your circle.

It is possible to write your own spells, spells that work if you apply the most auspicious energies to complement
your intention. I have tried to include all of the information you will need to compose a successful spell in these
pages.

You will find information on the
Moon's phases, daily and hourly correspondences. We have also included pages
on
meditation, visualization, manifesting your desires and managing energy. A list of world deities and
instructions on
how to cast a circle. There is a list of herbs and how to apply their energies to your magickal
work.

Here are some simple magicks you can try. Spells can be elaborate rituals or lovingly prepared meal. Focus and
Intention are the ingredients that makes it magic.

The Sweet Life Spell

This spell can be worked on any day as long as the moon is waxing and not void of course. You may work this
spell on a Sunday if you need energy for personal achievements which include wishes for wealth and fame.
Monday will infuse this working with the energy of the Moon Goddess.
A Tuesday working will enlist the strength and courage of Mars to awaken your passions.
Wednesday brings communications to the forefront with Mercury's energy to launch and/or inspire new projects.
Work on a Thursday, the day of benevolent Jupiter, and your sweet life spell will be infused with energy for good
health, prosperity and abundance.
Friday belongs to Venus and your working will be fueled with love.
Saturday brings Saturn's energy, a God of Time whose positive energy will lend power to healing, fixing, cleaning
and removing obstacles.

You will need one candle (choose a color appropriate for your working)
and one anointing oil (also appropriate for your working)

Now choose a sweet substance.
Honey is a potent substance used to attract good fortune, fertility, and love.
Chocolate is a delightful food to attract prosperity and luxury.
Maple Syrup brings love and/or money.
or my favorite, Nutella which mixes the potency of Hazelnuts (for wisdom,inspiration and luck) with chocolate's
ability to attract money.
If you want a healthier choice, fruit or a jar of jam of your choosing will work as long as the magical
correspondences align with your working.

To begin: Clean the room or space you will be working. Gather the things you need.

Now take a cleansing bath scented with a few drops of the oil you chose. Immerse yourself in the water. Slip
under the surface until you are completely submerged. Let go of all of the negativity that is clinging to you, and
as you surface, see it washing from you, rinsing away. If you feel you need to, dunk yourself completely under
until you are free and your body, mind, aura and spirit are clear. When you step from the tub. Leave all the
negativity behind to disappear down the drain. Dry with a clean towel and go in to set your sacred space.

Set your circle. Anoint your chosen candle with your chosen oil and light. Call whatever powers you are going to
work with. Now breathe deeply and quiet your mind. When you have reached the correct mental place, you are
ready to ask for your heart's desire.

Use your fingers or a spoon and begin to eat the sweet stuff. Take a bite and says, "Of the Powers
I ask this favor,
add sweetness that I may savor.
to my life such sweet delights
be granted me
with eat bite
of this sweet treat."

take another bite and savor the flavor. Delight in its taste as you roll it on your tongue.

and says twice more, "Of the Powers
I ask this favor,
add sweetness that I may savor.
to my life such sweet delights
be granted me
with eat bite
of this sweet treat."

Take another bite and this time say, "Sweetness within become sweetness without
by your power and your favor
My life is infused with sweetness.
I am blessed."

Take another bite and smile. Let happiness fill you as  eat,

"Sweetness within become sweetness without
by your power and your favor
My life is infused with sweetness.
I am blessed."

Take another bite and feel the sweet energy infuse throughout your body and your life.
"Sweetness within become sweetness without
by your power and your favor
My life is infused with sweetness.
I am blessed."

Continue until your treat is gone. Then thank the Powers.

If someone is being a bully toward you and you want to sweeten their disposition you can rework the spell
above by

Spell To Obtain Fast Money
Here is an extremely simple yet effective spell for obtaining fast money when needed:

On a Thursday during the Waxing Moon anoint a green candle with an appropriate money-drawing oil, such as
Patchouli, Jasmine, or Cinnamon. Anoint your candle and place in a holder on your altar. Place a brand new shiny
penny in front of the holder, and then surround the holder with three green aventurine gemstones. Repeat the
following chant 3 times:

"Money, money come to me, $100 is what I need!!!
With harm to none and help to many, multiply now this shiny penny!!!"

Now light your candle and gaze into its flame, strongly visualizing the needed money coming to you. Continue
with this visualization for as long as possible. After the candle has burned down completely, bury any remaining
wax on your property and carry the penny with you to reinforce your magickal intention. Please note that spells
to obtain money seem to work better when used for a true need.

Prosperity Spell
On a Thursday, dress a green candle with prosperity oil and light your favorite prosperity incense.
You will also need a piece of root of High John the Conqueror or a Galangal root, or piece of Ginger.

Gather all your materials and place them on your altar. Light the incense and the altar candles.
Cast the circle.
Light the green candle saying:

"I come here on benevolent Jupiter's day, the ruler of luck and fortune,
I light the flame of prosperity to signify what I seek."

Pick up the root and pass it through the flame of the candle stating:

"I purify this root to serve as a lasting token of my desire spoke this night. Allow only good fortune to come.
Open my eyes, so that I may see prosperity where before I saw none. "

Pick up the prosperity oil. Anoint the root with the oil stating:

"High John (or Galangal or Ginger) I anoint you with this essence of prosperity that you shall serve to draw to
me the money that I need. May its power add to your own to speed good fortune on it's way."

Pass the root through the smoke of the incense stating:

"I add the power of this perfume of prosperity to those already bestowed, that it shall increase your power still
more to bring me the prosperity that I seek."

Place the root in the center of the altar and meditate for a few moments on the great need you have for
financial help. When you have this clearly in mind, visualize a green light coming from above to surround the
root and yourself. Then say:

"Prosperity descends upon me and this token of my desire, the rich green glow of fortune shines brightly for all
to see. My financial woes are at an end, with harm to none as I will it, so mote it be."

Allow the candle to burn out and leave the root on the altar.
Open the circle.
Carry the root in as red velvet bag with you to draw prosperity.

This is a lovely
spell to get yourself back on track
Take a cleansing bath
Light a white candle dressed with sweet orange oil. Meditate a few moments before saying three times...

I enter the flow of All That Is
I am filled with loving kindness
I forgive and release all negativity
as I draw the best to me
love and happiness will reign
In my house and in my name
Thanks be to thee
So mote it be

Meditate at least ten more minutes holding the picture of what you want your life to be like.
See yourself as you
want to be.

Or for a more elaborate one:

Set
elemental candles
Sweep space
Cast your circle
" I cast this circle three times deosil, may not negative energy pass through in all time and space. I cast this
circle to create a sacred place between the worlds. I cast this circle to attract only positive energy and to
protect me from all harm. "

I call upon Earth, Guardians of the North, Soil of foundation. Come be welcome. I ask that you lend your energy
to this circle and support the magick created here.
I call upon Air, Guardians of the East, Breath of Transformation. Come be welcome. I ask that you lend your
energy to this circle and support the magick created here
I call upon Fire, Guardians of the South, Spark of Creation. Come be welcome. I ask that you lend your energy to
this circle and support the magick created here.
I call upon Water, Guardians of the West, Rain of Inspiration. Come be welcome. I ask that you lend your
energy to this circle and support the magick created here.
Spirit, the power that binds all the elements. The source of All That Is I ask that you guard and protect, guide
and nurture the magick created here.
Powers the be, harken to me as invoke my right of fulfullment.
Suport the magick created here.
May it be for the good of all.
(Circling deosil, chant)
Green power and gold,
red power and blue,
Here the power we do unfold,
Quarters' might, strong and true.
Four the winds to weave the round,
'tween the worlds the power be bound.
Till we send it at the last,
Guardians keep it strong and fast

I enter the flow of All That Is
One with peace
One with nature
Let your spirit flow through me
One my eyes that I may see that I may see your signs, symbols and Synchronicities at work every day.
Open my ears that I may hear your voice
Open my mind. Open my mind. Open my mind.
I am filled with loving kindness
I forgive and release all negativity
as I draw the best to me
love and happiness will reign
In my house and in my name
Thanks be to thee
So mote it be
Meditate and open your charkra's like a flower opening to the sun.

When you are ready thank the goddess, dismiss the energies and open the circle.
If you have a large working area, you can walk the perimeter of the working area three times clockwise while
saying the words above.
Go in peace, o mighty ones of the North,
Return to the trees and the soil and the stones
With my blessings and my thanks.
And as you depart to your fertile realms,
I bid you hail and farewell!
Go in peace, o mighty ones of the East,
Return to the winds and the clouds and the skies
With my blessings and my thanks.
And as you depart to your boundless realms
I bid you hail and farewell!
Go in peace, o mighty ones of the South
Return to the coals and the flames and the fiery sun
With my blessings and my thanks..
And as you depart to your fiery realms,
I bid you hail and farewell!
Go in peace, o mighty ones of the West,
Return to the streams and the waves and the ocean deeps
With my blessings and my thanks.
And as you depart to your flowing realms,
I bid you hail and farewell!
The circle is open but unbroken
merry meet, merry part and merry meet again.

This works wonders to sooth family members who will not get along.
Peace Spell
This is a spell to help bring peace and harmony back into your Household supplies: 3 candles (1 pink, 1 brown,
and 1 light blue), Lavender (herb) or Violet (herb), a piece of paper, pink ribbon, scissors, and a pen or pencil

Place the candles on the alter... the pink on the left, the light blue on the right, and the brown in the middle.
Cast a circle and light the candles. Sprinkle the Lavendar/Violet around the three candles. Cut the piece of paper
into rectangles... one rectangle for each person living in your household (remember to count yourself as well).
Draw a picture of each person on each rectangle. Don't worry, they can be stick-figures... just as long as you
know who is who. Now put all of the family members in a pile and tie the ribbon around the stack. Tie the ribbon
in three knots as you say:

"Fighting, screaming, imbalances be gone!
Let's put the family peace back on!
Harmony, friendship, protection...
This house needs some love in its direction!"

Place the stack underneath the brown candle. Snuff out the pink and the light blue candles, and let the brown
one burn out.

Freezer Binding Spell kitchen witch spell

Spoken - This is a very simple spell to stop someone from causing trouble for you. It doesn't harm them
physically or emotionally, although it is an attempt to manipulate another's actions

You will need a freezer, a zip lock bag, some water, a piece of paper and a pencil

Meditate if necessary on the actions the person is taking that you wish to stop so that you can distill it into as
concise a statement as possible. You want one or two sentences.

Write this on the piece of paper with the pencil along with the persons name saying:

"This slip of paper is (name), and his/her actions against me. I hereby freeze (name) and bind him/her from
causing me harm. As my will so mote it be."

If the person is not known to you, use the following alternate wording and omit the name on the piece of paper.

"This slip of paper is the unknown one and their actions against me. I hereby freeze them and bind them from
causing me harm. As my will so mote it be."

Fold the paper into a compact shape and place the paper in the baggie.
Fill the baggie with enough water to submerge the paper.
Place the water filled baggie in the freezer and freeze it solid.
Keep it there until the difficulty is resolved, then thaw and bury the paper in the earth, pouring the water on the
ground and saying:

"I release you from the binding, on the understanding that you are not to harm me again. As my will so mote it
be."

Binding A Spell
When you have completed a spell, it is a good idea to bind it. This puts the finishing touches on it and is
another chance for you to be sure you have only good intentions behind your work. The spell binding I use most
often goes like this:

By all the power of three times three,
This spell bound ‘round shall be,
To cause no harm, nor return on me.
As I do will, so mote it be!

Acceptance Spell
Spoken - Designed to be used each day to develop a more accepting attitude toward others. May be used in your
morning affirmations.
This is from "Everyday Magic" by Dorothy Morrison.

Goddess please help me to be,
accepting of others idiosyncrasies.
Let me truly see the value of,
greeting all with perfect love.
Guide my heart to let others be,
and treasure their individuality.
Each one unique and special find,
a positive thought in my mind.
To always be kind and fair,
so mote it be I now declare.

New Moon Career spell
You will need: a gold candle
3 red candles
1 orange candle
rose oil and 5 Laurel leaves
one rose thorn.

Choose an oil:
Borage to fortify your inner self
Clary Sage for healing
or Mugwort for stamina

To begin: Clean the room or space you will be working. Gather the things you need. Then take a cleansing bath
scented with rose oil and 3 Laurel leaves.

Quiet your mind with a meditation and when you have reached the correct mental place, you are ready to ask for
your heart's desire. Simply anoint the candles with the oil of your choice. Then carve the title you desire into
both sides of it with the thorn. Set the gold candle on 2 crossed Laurel leaves resting on a fire-safe surface and
light. Watch the flame as you concentrate on your heart's desire. With the image fixed firmly in your mind and
say:
Goddess Luna,
mother of all love and light,

I wish tonight.
A quest for synergy
to glow and shine,
infusing this spell
with your energy
most sublime.

(Now add exactly what you wish for).
Repeat twice more.

Meditate as you visualize yourself in whichever position you would like to be in at present. Whether it be a new
job, a promotion or for your company to prosper. Then SEE yourself there - where you want to be. Feel what you
are doing as you talk to your boss or your staff, feel the surroundings and address yourself with the title that
you want or whatever you want for your company. Continue to think about yourself or your company as
successful. Hold the visualization as long as possible allowing the candle to fully burn out.

Spell to Remove Barriers
this is a good spell for a waning moon
a gold candle
eucalyptus oil
bay leaves

Anoint candle and set on leaves.

When you light the candle visualize the obstacles you wish to remove.

Powers at work here my call,
that my endeavors no longer stall
but with your strength the path is cleared
as the desires in my heart are now mirrored
in the physical realm where they form
so that my reality becomes transformed.
