Dark Goddess Hecate

“The Earth began to bellow, trees to dance
And howling dogs in glimmering light advance
Ere Hekate came.”

 

Dark Goddess Hecate’s celebration day is November 16

 

The Goddess Hecate was a deity of the night, crossroads, life and death. She was called Most Lovely One, the Distant One, Queen of the World of Spirits, goddess of witchcraft. To the Thracians especially, Hecate was goddess of the Moon, the dark hours, and the Underworld. Midwives were connected with her.

 

Some myths say Hecate was the daughter of the Titans Tartaros and Night; other versions say of Perseus and Asteria (Starry-Night), or of Zeus and Hera. We do know her worship did not originate in Greece. One of her sacred animals was the toad, a symbol of conception. She was called the goddess of transformation as she ruled over the various passages of life, and could change forms or ages.

 

Hecate was considered to be the third aspect of the Moon, the Hag or Crone (Carrier of Wisdom).The Greeks called Hecate the Hag of the Dead. (The word “hag” may have come from the Egyptian word “heq”, meaning a matriarachal ruler who knew magickal words of power.)

 

An ally of Zeus, she was accompanied by a pack of hounds.

 

An aspect of the Amazon goddess, Hecate’s chariot was pulled by dragons. Her symbols were the key and the cauldron. The women who worshipped her often stained their palms and soles with henna. Her festivals were held at night by torchlight. Every year on the island of Aegina in the Saronic Gulf, a mysterious festival was held in her honor.

Black Candle Magic…

 

The black candle is very powerful. It is one of the most protective colors. It can be used to bring a person back down to earth. It can also be used in various ways to uncover secrets. It can be used in meditation, to help us find the light within the dark. It stabilizes and awakens greater responsibility. It is most effective when burnt with a white candle. Too much black can manifest depression.

 

Use Black candles for magic with…

 

The God, New moon magic, Male energy, banishing Magic, Diet, Protection; Repelling negativity; Binding, shapshifting. Use black candles for mirror Scrying. Traditional candles for the dead during remembrance rituals at Samhain (Halloween)

 

Black Salt

 

Black Salt is used in banishing, binding rituals or to quiet bothersome neighbors. Magically used to remove negative energies from items, or places. Often used to remove hexes and other harmful or negative energies. Cleanse your magical implements in a bath of black salt and water… and then wash in a bath of sea salt to purify the item and allow in only positive energies.

 

A PERFECT ingredient for filling ‘Binding Poppets’ for a powerful outcome. Place a black candle in a pile of black salt for Samhain Remembrance rituals, sprinkle Ouiji Boards with Black Salt before use.

*Making a black mirror at home

 

Here is a simple method for making a black mirror at home.

 

Buy a picture frame, complete with the glass.
Pick up some black paint at the craft/hardware shop, best use gouache paint, acrylic or oil based.
Make sure you have a paintbrush!
Disassemble the frame and lay the glass on a piece of newspaper.
Paint the backside of the glass with the black paint and let dry. (I recommend 2-3 coats.)
After it is all dry, if there is any need clean the outer part of the glass with winnow cleaner to make it extra shiny and pretty.
Place the painted glass into the picture frame the unpainted glass side facing outwards.
You can glue various magical items to your black magic picture frame, like herbs, crystals, stones, shells, feathers etc
Use with black candle, slightly tilted for candle Scrying, especially effective when the Sun is in Scorpio, October.

Esbats

 

While the sabbats are solar festivals that celebrate and honor the Sun, God and male energy, esbats are rituals celebrated by witches and pagans to revere the moon, and the feminine energy represented by her lunar cycle.

 

Esbats, derived from the French esbattre, meaning “to frolic,” are gatherings or solitary rituals held every month on the night of that month’s full moon, to worship the goddess as represented by the moon. Some groups and solitaries may hold their esbats on the night of the new moon, however. It is also the correct time to hold an esbat, and some motivated groups or persons may hold rituals on both nights. Esbats may also be known as lunar rituals.

 

While sabbats are strictly days of celebration, esbats are known as “working” rituals. This is usually the time set aside for a coven, groups or solitaries to perform magick, such as casting spells for the success of a new endeavor, healing rituals, etc.

Binding Spell

 

The purpose of this spell is to rid yourself of the negative energies of someone who is mentally or emotionally abusing you. If done properly, it will not harm the object of the spell nor will it affect his or her daily life in any way. It will simply make the person powerless to mentally or emotionally harm you.

 

Perform when Moon is dark

 

Materials:

 

Small cloth doll,(poppet) leave the head unstitched until you are ready to begin the ritual Needle and thread

 

Some personal item from the person you want to bind (fingernail clippings, hair, handwriting sample)

 

Black ribbon

 

Black candle

 

Cauldron or other fireproof container

 

Sterilized needle

 

Piece of parchment paper and pen or quill

 

One candle at each quarter (optional)

 

Ritual:

 

Call the quarters – I like to use candles at each quarter to form a circle of fire for extra protection. Light the black candle Concentrating deeply on the person you are binding, place the personal object inside the head of the doll and sew it shut.Tie the black ribbon around the poppet’s head, signifying the binding of that person.

 

‘With harm to none, my will be done

I hereby bind you (name of person)

 

Your words cannot harm me

 

Your thoughts cannot harm me

 

You cannot harm me’

 

Continue chanting this or something like it until you feel power surging through you. Visualize the person helpless to slander or verbally and mentally abuse you while you are chanting.

 

~ Now, to bind the spell ~

 

If you have a sigil or a craft name, sign it on the small piece of paper. If not, sign your own full name. If others are working the ritual with you, they too should sign the paper. With the sterilized needle, prick one of your fingers and put a small drop of blood over your signature. Again, if others are working with you, they should place a drop of blood over their signatures. (using a different needle, of course) Fold the paper, light it on fire and drop it into the cauldron (which should be on a heat-proof surface!). Meditate on the flames until the paper completely burns away. If you are working with a group, join hands at this point and feel the power surging around the circle as the spell is bound. Ground and center

 

Release the circle. Thank the Goddess and God for their protection and power Bury the doll as far away from you as possible within the next few days.

 

“You are bound to that which you bind !”

Spell to Raise Spirits

 

To see spirits, old European grimoires recommend mixing together aloe, pepper, musk, vervain, and saffron and burning this in a cemetery. We can adapt this for other locations (like those in which the spirit lived) by adding a bit of sweet grass or tobacco to a specially prepared incense. Create the incense on the anniversary of the death of the individual you wish to contact. This is then burned at 11 am, in the safety of a magic circle that also holds symbolic items to connect you to the entity. An incantation to encourage the spirit’s presence is:

 

“Guardians of the Spirit realm, hear and guide my plea.

 

When the witching hour rings true, bring my friend (loved one, etc.) ________ to me.

 

Other souls who hear my call are not welcome in this place.

 

Only the one known as _____ may enter sacred space.”

 

Repeat the request three times, twenty minutes apart, then wait quietly for indications of a presence. Signs include the scent of flowers or a favored cologne, a cool wind, movement of curtains, and candles going out or twitching erratically. Once you feel sure the spirit is with you, do not make it remain overly long. Take care of your business, say farewell, and thank the guardians for their assistance.

 

* Communication with and understanding the purposes of spirits:

 

! Word of Warning !

 

Spiritual entities should not be banished or called for amusement. It is best to contact a knowledgeable, experienced psychic for advice or assistance before undertaking any of these spells.

 

~ Timing ~

 

In-between times (noon, midnight, dusk, and dawn). Halloween. Seasons of late fall and winter. Moon in Libra. Eclipses. Wednesday.

Witches Fivefold kiss

 

This was traditionally part of the ritual between the priest and priestess, as well as part of the great rite.

 

“Blessed be thy feet which have brought thee in these ways
Blessed be thy knees that kneel at the sacred altar
Blessed be thy sex, without which we would not be here
Blessed be thy breast, formed in beauty and strength
Blessed be thy lips, that they shall utter thy sacred names…”

 

 

To Curse a book

 

“By the powers of witches and mages

I craft a curse upon these pages.”

To Beckon a Person

 

To beckon a someone, write the persons name on parchment paper in Dove’s blood ink, fold paper three times and put under candle holder. light a white candle that you have “dressed” in Rosemary oil and rolled in dry Rosemary leaves. If you have a picture of the person put it next to candle. Stand to the East while saying:

 

“If you are turning towards me
know I turn also to you,
and come to me in love

 

If you are thinking of me
know I think also of you,
and come to me in love

 

If you are saying my name
know that I say your name, and call you to me
and come to me in love

 

(name)
(name)
(name)”

 

Repeat as needed.
Timing; When Mercury rules, Moon in Gemini, Wednesdays. Leave the candle to burn out until you here from the one you call.

 

Witches Bottle

 

The Witch’s Bottle protects the Witch from all negativity for as long as the bottle stays underground. This spell is an important part of the PectiWitan focus of my tradition because once you have created your bottle, there is no need to cast a circle for protection.

 

Making the Bottle:

 

– Take a small jar and fill it about halfway with sharp objects such as pins, needles, nails, screws, etc.
– Fill the rest of the bottle with urine and perhaps a spot of menstrual blood
– Tightly seal
– Use your athame (if you have one) to dig a hole (Make sure you chose a place that is unlikely to be disturbed)
– Place the bottle in the hole and cover with dirt

 

~ Reference Scottish WitchCraft by Raymond Buckland

 

Witches Bottle Chant

 

‘I am a witch of ancient lore, I petition these trees, and forest floor.
Converge myself upon this site, spider weaving power and might.
Air and Fire, Water and Earth, aid in my quest, I call you forth.
Aradia, Aradia, I intone, thrice the power you have shone.
Open my spiral of strength and sorcery, encompass the soul you have granted me.
Pentacle of old, stones of deep, protection around, assistance I seek.
Marry my veins, to this Earth, Cernunnos I summon you forth.
Steele needles and pins, red blood of sins.
Buried deep in clandestine dusk, liquid Venus, scent of musk.
Hear my words from Moon to Moon, cite the Lord & Lady’s Rune
By the law of three times three, this spell is done, so mote it be…..

The Pentacle

ace-of-pentacles

Phantomwise.com

 

The most important symbol of Witchcraft is the pentacle. The pentacle (or pentagram) is a Witches symbol of protection and positive power. The five points signify earth, air, fire, water and spirit.

 

The symbol of Witchcraft, The Pentacle, is a bold and fascinating statement about our place in the Universe. The pentagram represents an ancient concept that can be found in philosophical thought in both East and West. Although over 8,000 years old, the image of the pentagram is applicable in our modern world. The pentagram tells us that we have the ability to bring Spirit to Earth; this applies to every area of practical day-to-day living, as well as spiritual thought. The ability of bringing Spirit to Earth is what makes us whole.

 

Earth: (lower left hand corner) represents stability and physical endurance.
Fire: (lower right hand corner) represents courage and daring.
Water: (upper right hand corner) represents emotions and intuition.
Air: (upper left hand corner) represents intelligence and the arts.
Spirit: (at the topmost point) represents the All and the Divine.

Seven Things That Can Block Your Spirit Guides

spirit guide

Your angels, spirit animals and spirit guides in general are supposed to be connecting and communicating with you, offering guidance for your life and acting as a source of light and encouragement. If you aren’t experiencing this, what’s the problem? As it turns out, it’s probably largely you yourself that stands in your own way, as well as the way of your spirit guides! Everything from your attitude to even the things that you eat can affect the connection with your spirit guides.

Never fear, however, there are a lot of things you can do in order to open the channels again. You are the problem, and you are also the solution.

Here are seven common problems that almost everyone faces. Of course, there are many more that you may discover in your own journey, so take these as a beginning point of examination and take a good look at your own heart and lifestyle:

INEXPERIENCE

So you’re new to the spiritual work game. That is no big deal! However, it can trip you up a little if you don’t know what you’re doing.

The best practice is to not do much at all! Keep an open heart and mind, of course, but learn to relax your mind, perhaps through a daily meditation, hold onto your patience and keep your expectations realistic.

You can also practice heightening all of your senses and increasing your awareness. Again, don’t constantly be on the lookout, but instead open the channels of your receptiveness.

DISORGANIZATION

You attract what’s around you. Is your home a big pile of clutter with random objects lost in the fray? Is your desk even visible under those stacks of who-knows-what? The state of your affairs can reflect your heart. This is why space clearing is so important in Feng Shui. Clean space, clean spirit!

That’s the kind of spirit and environment that your guides are attracted to. Make things as easy as possible on them and create the most appealing, welcoming atmosphere to them, and let them get to work.

EXPECTATIONS

Waiting for a gigantic sign with life directions to fall out of the sky and hit you on the head…literally? It’s time to move on and instead focus on your bond with your guides.

You never know how your guides will contact you, and by setting your expectations even really high, you’re putting them in a box and limiting yourself more than anything. Sometimes the gestures will be big and grand; other times, they will be just mere feelings, gentle whispers in your heart or your ears, or a fleeting visual. Sometimes, these signs are even more powerful than a huge clap of thunder!

Find the small signs, and the big ones may or may not come. It doesn’t matter! Once you connect with your guides, you’ll realize that the sign and the journey with the spirits itself is what matters.

IMPATIENCE

If you’re constantly wondering and anxiously waiting for messages from your spirit guides, the internal turmoil and anxiety you’re building up could cause you to miss it all together! Plus, when you’re in this state, you aren’t having faith in your guides, you’re demanding to have your way and your results. Where’s the beauty in that?

Building up your patience also builds your trust in your guides, thus strengthening your bond all the more. When you’re facing challenges, you can still know that your guides have your best interests at heart, and that they will be there for you at just the right time.

When you aren’t looking for it, all kinds of great things can happen unexpectedly. With a stronger bond with your guide, you’ll start to recognize that the coincidences that seem so fortuitously timed are intentional messages and guidance from the spirits who care about you.

DRAMA

The chaos of certain relationships and situations can certainly be the utmost distractions. When you’re constantly squabbling with an acquaintance or trying to make everyone happy, you yourself aren’t happy. You’re agitated, likely closed off, and unfocused. This can make it hard to connect with your spirit guides.

Ask your guides to help you clear your heart. Get rid of the negativity and fear and replace it with the peaceful, loving energy of positivity. Also ask your guides to help point out any relationships that you may have outgrown, ones that are only slowing you down and harming more than helping. It’s okay to trim back relationships that are draining you of valuable emotional and spiritual energy.

While it’s important to still love everyone around you no matter what, it’s your choice who to pour yourself into. The more negative energy you collect around yourself, your friends included, the harder it will be for your spirit guides to connect to you.

FOOD

Humans are clusters of energy waves, moving faster and faster all the time. As a human you have agreed to see yourself as solid forms through consensus reality. Everything you do and think, everything you eat and drink, in fact, everything you put into and around your body effects the overall vibration of your entire being. After all, we are energy, and food is energy for us, thus affecting our energy overall.

Therefore, it is quite essential that you pay attention to the vibrations of the foods you eat. When you eat foods that have a high and rapid vibration, you are more able to hold a strong, healthy, exuberant and joyful state. When, on the other hand, you eat foods of a slower, lower frequency, you lower your vibrations and, wonder why you don’t feel quite so good that day.

Each of us has a signature vibration; each food you ingest contributes to that vibration. Here are some of the foods for lower vibrations that you should avoid, not just for nutrition and toxin’s sakes:

Genetically modified (GMO) food, and conventional food that’s been treated with chemicals and pesticides
• White rice and flours
• Sugars, sweeteners (artificial etc.)
Coffee
• Sodas
Alcohol
Meat, fish and poultry
Processed, packaged, canned and fast foods
Unhealthy oils, like canola, cottonseed, margarine, and vegetable oils
• Frozen foods
• Pasteurized cows milk, yogurt and cheese
• Cooked foods, deep fried foods and microwaving food

OVERANALYZING

Our egos can be one of the biggest trip-ups of all. When it’s chattering away in our ears that it knows best, tell it to be quiet for a bit! When you’re analyzing everything, you can break the connection with your guides. Some of the sweetest moments come when you have sudden clarity and insight that you hadn’t seen before.

Your guides want you to have faith in them, and it also creates the space for all the miracles they want for you. They may not be earth-shattering and crazy every time, but by letting them come to you instead of dissecting every little thing, you can reap their benefits more often and be amazed by their simple beauty.

Opening the Root Chakra

My next project in my journey of spiritual growth is realigning and opening my chakras. I am going to start with the First Chakra (or Root Chakra) and work my way up from there. The reason I’m starting there is because I feel the need to be more grounded and connected with the earth and it just seems the right way to begin since the last Chakra (the Crown Chakra) is our connection to the divine.

Here is a simple exercise that I will be doing for the next several days (or however long it takes for me to open it) to open my Root Chakra:

Chakra one, located at the base of the spine, has to do with grounding and sending your energy downward into your roots and into the earth. Here’s a simple exercise you can practice to energize the legs and develop better grounding. Stand with your feet hip width apart, heels slightly wider than the toes. Press down and out with your feet, as if you were trying to push apart the floorboards with your feet. Inhale as you bed your knees; exhale as you push down into your feet, pushing through your legs. Repeat until your legs begin to vibrate. Once you learn this, you can practice it any time you find yourself standing – in line at the grocery store, pumping gas, cooking, or on the phone.

Prayer to St. Micheal, Aligning Chakras, Breaking Soul Ties, and a Protection and Binding Spell

Yesterday was a big day for me. I spent most of it fasting and in prayer and casting protection spells. I hadn’t gotten any sleep due to being totally stressed out about all the possibilities running through my head that could happen should my stalker find me and my daughter.

The first thing I did was pray the Warfare Prayer. Then, I prayed the Armor of God prayer. After that, I made some coffee and rested for a bit. Yesterday was a day when I felt spiritually attacked pretty much all day. The negative thoughts about the person who is threatening me just would not go away. I would take one captive, push it away, ask the Holy Spirit to fill that space with positive, God-type thoughts and then another one would come. It was a rapid-fire brain assault. I broke down crying while I was making coffee feeling despair overwhelm me. The main thought that kept coming to my head was that I should give up because there was no way I would ever be able to win against him. After I dried my tears, I realized that that thought was nothing but him flinging his negativity at me and his evil spirits deviling me. Understand, I am not a devil-behind-every-door person. He has threatened to take my daughter from me and has threatened me personally, so, in this case, I believe that my assessment was spot on.

After I got myself together, I brought out my book of spells and found the prayer to St. Micheal the Archangel. It is basically a prayer of protection. You have to pray it in each of the four corners in each of the rooms in your house/apartment. Then you put salt on all the windowsills, doorways and under your bed.

Here is the prayer:

St. Micheal the Archangel, defend us (me) in battle.

Be our (my) protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.

May God rebuke him we (I) humbly pray.

And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen.

After, I finished this, I then realigned my chakras. The meditation I did you can find here.

The negative thoughts continued for most of the day unabated. I battled and battled with them. A friend of mine I talked to yesterday reminded me to break the soul-tie between him and myself. She reminded me that that might be one of the reasons why I was feeling his negativity so strongly. I have broken soul-ties before, so I knew already knew how to do it. For those who are not familiar with a soul-tie, I will explain: A soul-tie is formed when two people become connected spiritually, emotionally, or physically. I always thought of it like this: When you connect with a person, a part of your soul stays with them and a part of their soul stays with you. That’s why it is so important to watch who you get close to. All people are not good and don’t have your best interests at heart. Everyone is at a different place in their lives and some people, quite frankly, are most interested in themselves, what they can attain and what they can get from you or what they can do to you. Suffice it to say, I was foolish for getting close to this person, but I have learned an important lesson and one that I’m not likely to forget.

This is how you break a soul-tie:

Think about that person and everything that you two have experienced together. Think about all your feelings toward that person and their feelings toward you. Basically EVERYTHING having to do with your relationship with that person. Focus on it and try not to get distracted. You are trying to repair your spirit and this is important business. Then pray:

In Jesus’ name, I break the soul-tie between myself and (name of person). Heavenly Father, I pray that you would heal my spirit and make me whole again. Blessed Holy Spirit, I pray that you would fill that space and heal my broken spirit. Jesus, please intercede for me with the Father so that I may be healed. I forgive (person’s name) for everything they have done to me. I pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.

The prayer doesn’t have to go exactly like this. It doesn’t have to be word-for-word, but you have to do it in Jesus’ name. It’s Jesus’ power that breaks the bond, not yours. If you have had multiple partners and have never done this before, you may want to take a day or so and write down the names of who you have been with that you want to separate from. I had to do this in my twenties. It took several days and praying for God to help me remember the names. I also had someone with me who was more mature in Christ than myself. This person stayed with me and prayed with me to break the soul-ties. This is very advisable, for the Scripture says:

James_5:16  Therefore, make it your habit to confess your sins to one another and to pray for one another, so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.

and:

Mat 18:18 “I tell you with certainty, whatever you prohibit on earth will have been prohibited in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will have been permitted in heaven.
Mat 18:19 Furthermore, I tell you with certainty that if two of you agree on earth about anything you request, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven,
Mat 18:20 because where two or three have come together in  my name, I am there among them.”

After I completed this, the attacks on my mind stopped. It was getting so bad that I couldn’t concentrate on anything.

Later that night, before midnight, I did a Protection and Binding spell to further protect myself from this person and to bind him from doing any harm to me or to anyone I love.

I got this spell from a Druidic High Priestess who has been practicing Druidism for twenty plus years.

Protection and Binding Spell

Ingredients:

1. Black Candle or dark candle (There were no black candles at the store I was in so I got a black cherry one. It was the darkest one I could find. It doesn’t have to be expensive. A 99 cent candle will do just fine. Also, be sure to carve the name of the person you want to bind into the candle.)

2. Black or dark stone (I didn’t have a black stone on hand, but I had a brown one with red undertones, which I was told would work just fine.)

3. Sea Salt

4. White thread, yarn or embroidery yarn

5. Patchouli incense or white sage (I couldn’t find Patchouli incense or white sage, so I bought some that was sort of earthy smelling. It was similar to Patchouli.)

6. A picture of the person you wish to bind. (You need a picture or something of theirs. Something they owned.)

Twelve hours before you do the spell, put the stone and the salt in the freezer. The cold will cleanse them. Be sure to leave them there for at least twelve hours.

I did the ritual on the last night of the dark of the moon. The Priestess told me that this was a very powerful time and that it would not happen again for a couple of years. Also, that I needed to do the spell before midnight.

After the twelve hour mark and before midnight, get all of the ingredients together and place on a table. Use the salt and put down a salt barrier around yourself and the table. DO NOT BREAK THE CIRCLE ONCE YOU HAVE LAID IT. if you leave the circle or someone enters the circle you will have to start over.

Light your candle and light the incense. DO NOT BLOW EITHER OUT. They both must burn all the way down. If you are carving the person’s name in your candle, do it BEFORE you light it.

Once they are both lit, focus on a white light of protection around you so bright that it takes up the whole circle. So bright that when you open your eyes you have to squint. (What I did was imagine the light coming up from the salt forming a protective “bubble” around me. Then, I visualized my own light coming out of me and focused on making it really strong and bright.)

Then focus on the picture of the person you want to bind. Focus on their face and body and imagine jail or prison bars around them or something similar. (I took my finger *remember you can use your finger as a wand* and felt energy coming out of it and drew bars with my finger over his face and body. I drew so many that he was completely obscured.) You want to build a wall or a fortress around that person.

Then, call the corners (quarters). This is a really simple way to do it:

I call upon East, the direction of Air.

I call upon North, the direction of Earth.

I call upon West, the direction of my ancestors and Water.

I call upon South, the direction of Fire.

I ask that you aid me in these protection workings.

Then, call upon Kali (KAH-li) (If and only if you are binding a man. Kahli is the goddess and protector of women and hates men.) Ask her to aid you. This is where you have to improvise. I told Kahli that I was in fear for my life was being threatened and that I feared for my daughter as well. You must be especially gracious to her. She will hear you! Just tell her what is going on and why you are asking for and need her protection. This is my first encounter with her, but I got the feeling that we shouldn’t be asking her for frivolous things. If my life and my daughter were not being threatened, I don’t think I would have petitioned her. I could be wrong, but this was my impression of her.

Once that is done, take the picture and thread and wrap the thread around the picture until you can’t see any part of the picture. While you are doing this, say:

(Name), with the protection of Kali, you will not harm me or anyone I love.

MEAN IT WHEN YOU SAY IT!! Repeat this over and over until the picture is covered. (I wound up having to fold the picture several times because, as I wrapped it more and more with the thread, the picture would warp and was hard to handle. I figured it would be better just to keep folding it smaller, rather than creating frustration and losing my focus. Also, if I ever do this spell again, I’m getting white yarn. I had white sewing thread which was very hard to deal with and took a long time to cover the picture. The time wouldn’t have been an issue if my daughter hadn’t been awake, but she was and there is only so much time a two year old, even a well behaved two year old, can be still.)

Once that’s done, hold the bound picture in your hands for about five or ten minutes since you will likely be upset and nervous. (I wasn’t nervous, but I was angry. I was livid, so I had to take a few moments to regain my composure and to let the anger dissipate.) While you are holding the picture in your hands, focus on your child/children/home/yourself. Do the white light protection again.

Once that’s done, close the corners (quarters):

East, thank you for aiding me tonight. Go if you must. Stay if you will. Hail to you and farewell.

North, thank you for aiding me tonight. Go if you must. Stay if you will. Hail to you and farewell.

West, thank you for aiding me tonight. Go if you must. Stay if you will. Hail to you and farewell.

South, thank you for aiding me tonight. Go if you must. Stay if you will. Hail to you and farewell.

It is most important to say a gracious thanks to Kali. Bid her sincerest thanks and fare thee well. Tell her to go or stay, but that you would prefer she watch over you as long as she deems necessary.

Once, all that is done, you can break the salt barrier. Put the binding somewhere in a box and seal it. Put it high up where it CANNOT BE TOUCHED.

After the binding is secured, then you need to put the stone somewhere that you can keep it on you at all times. Then, take at least a fifteen minute sea salt bath to cleanse your body of any negativity. After that, you will sleep like a ROCK.

If you have a sachet, put the stone in it and keep it under your pillow at night. During the day, keep it on you at all times. Put it in your pocket; on a chain; put it into a ring. Just keep it on you.

DO NOT BLOW THE CANDLE OUT. LET IT BURN ALL THE WAY DOWN.

I had to start and stop this spell about four times because my daughter kept walking into the circle. I would thank the spirits profusely, apologize profusely and tell them that I would have to come back to them later. I got my daughter calmed down, since she was crying pretty hard (It’s hard to explain things like this to a two year old. She just knew she wanted to sit in my lap and didn’t understand why she couldn’t. So I let her sit in my chair, turned on cartoons, gave her some soda, <which she never gets>, her teddy bear and some snacks and she was set.) and eventually, by telling her that she could help me do the spell, I was able to get back to it.

After the spell was finished, I cleaned everything up and took the bath. About thirty to forty five minutes after that, the tiredness hit me. It wasn’t just a tired like I had been at work all day and needed to crash. It was a bone tiredness. I felt tired like I did after my dad died and after I had given birth and spent two weeks in the NICU with my daughter. I was tired physically, but moreso, I was tired spiritually. I put my daughter to bed and fell into bed. I didn’t even dream.

Today, I woke up feeling weak and shaky. I tried to bolster myself with coffee, because I was scheduled to go on a job interview this afternoon, but it didn’t work. I had to reschedule. I’m pretty stubborn, so I had already fixed my hair and makeup, dressed myself and my daughter before I gave in and realized I would never be able to pass the skills tests they had scheduled for me. I was frustrated and disappointed, but I figure if the universe wants me there, I will be. If not, then not. I’m done trying to swim upstream and trying to force the square peg into the round hole.

Merry Part and Blessings Be!

Aligning Chakras When Negative Energies and Thoughts Come

This is an exercise to rebalance yourself and align your chakras when you feel any kind of stress or negative energies coming on you. I’m going to try this right after I finish posting it. I added the graphic so that we all would know where each chakra is; what it represents and what color it is to help with the meditation. I hope this helps someone. Here’s an article about what the chakras are, what colors they represent, what they do and what gemstones are related to them: The Seven Major Chakras

  • A really good way that works for many instantaneously because what it does is aligns every single chakra energy point in your body, is the following:
    • Stand up straight and put your palms together in a “prayer” position with your feet and legs touching each other.
    • Close your eyes and begin to SLOWLY breath in and out, 7 times.
    • As you breath in you are to think of each of the Chakra colors, and breath into the chakra corresponding to each color. So if you begin with your crown chakra breathe in the violet/purple color and feel your chakra activate by fully focusing on it, completely feeling the tingling sensation of activation and peace spread throughout that area of your body, as you breathe out think of everything that is not working for your highest good leaving your body.
    • Continue to do so until you are done with all 7 breath. 
    • Then lift your hands up with the palms still touching and spread them open and place your palms on the side of your legs.
