A Spell to Sleep Well

As many of my longtime followers can probably attest, I have a long history of insomnia that doesn’t seem totally resolved yet. I don’t have all the materials for this Wicca-based spell, but I think I’m going to try to acquire them, because I seriously think I could use the help!

You will need a sprig of lavender, a piece of smoky quartz, and a blank piece of parchment alongside something you can write with. I’m sure most of you are familiar with lavender’s properties of aiding sleep, but smoky quartz also has a very soothing effect, so it’s a two-pronged attack of relaxation!

Prior to casting your spell, you’re going to want to prepare your bedroom for sleeping well. Clean linens, dim lights, and as quiet a space as possible will all help. If you want to involve a little bit of feng shui, try making sure that the closet door is closed and there’s nothing under your bed. 

Then, while sitting on the bed (and avoiding sitting on the pillow you’ll be sleeping on), hold the smoky quartz and sink your consciousness into your body. Meditate and feel yourself embracing the crystal’s calming energy, even as you let your worries drift away. When you’re suitably grounded, chant the following incantation while holding the stone in your right hand and rotating your wrist clockwise:

The Moon is up,

I hold its piece

The silver dust

Will guard my peace

Once you’ve done this, wrap the smoky quartz and lavender sprig in the parchment and lay them beside your bed. Now, bear in mind that, like anything else, spellcraft requires practice. Some spells don’t take the first time, and you may need to keep trying for up to three nights. From what I’ve read, though, this spell is well worth your patience!

Sleep well, and may the Tree of Life shelter you all!

Halloween is a time where the veil between the spirit world and ours is at its thinnest. Halloween allows us to connect with those who have pasted one and the magical energies that surrounds us during the hollows eve moon.

Connect with the energies of the back cat to enhance your magic, strengthen intuition, and provide psychic awareness. Black cats are messengers from the underworld, they provide ancient knowledge of the spirit realm. They are the symbol of magic within witchcraft and are cherished in many cultures.

Black Cat Tea

  • 1 tsp Jasmine
  • ½ tsp Spearmint
  • ½ tsp Marigold
  • ½ tsp Licorice Root

This tea will provide the energy of the black cat and lucid dreaming. Keep a tigers eye or smokey quartz close to you on Halloween, to protect you from negativity and unwanted entities. For extra protection sprinkle chamomile around your home or put in a bag to hang on door to ward off hexes and evil spirits.

Spell Update!

Since I cast my spell to remove my creative blockage, I’ve been drawing and writing a lot more! I’ve also been able to enjoy things more and take inspiration from them!

Creative Blockage Removal Spell

There’s a spell I’ve been planning that may seem a big too dramatic for the problem it’s trying to resolve, but hear me out on this one. I’ve been dealing with a mounting creative blockage for a year or two now, and it’s gotten to the point that I can barely write and can’t draw anything. It even seems to have obstructed me from doing things I enjoy and taking inspiration from them for the things I create!

So, tomorrow morning (as Saturdays correspond to spells for removing blockages or obstacles), I have a spell planned that I’ve been preparing for about a week! Ever since last Friday and through the full moon on Wednesday, I’ve been charging up my sodalite, orange calcite, white opal, and obsidian arrowhead with energy from the sun, moon, and stars, along with a black, a white, an orange, and a blue candle. These candles are going to be arranged to the north, east, south, and west of my altar, respective to their hues, with their crystals of corresponding colors set in front of them. Then, in the spaces between each one, I’ll be laying some of my artist’s tools: a writing pencil, a drawing pencil, a paintbrush, and an implement for shaping clay.

I also plan on possibly making sigils for each candle, and I’m definitely going to try using tarot cards as an additional medium. I’ll also load up the spell with incantations, prayers, and even some mantras! As for why I’m going this far, well… Other than magick, creative expression of all kinds are kind of the pursuits I live for the most. And this creative block I’ve been experiencing has been getting so bad and going on for so long that I think I need to use my other most beloved pursuit, magick, to get my energies moving again!

Also, if you’re wondering about the art supplies, I’ve had some ideas recently for how to use everyday items as components to spells! I think it would be great if you’re a witch living on a budget and want to work with some ideas that are outside of the box. It’s an idea I originally found while researching vodou, so I’ll probably make a post on it sometime after I finish my humdinger of a spell that inspired this post!

Hopefully removing this creative blockage will also help me to start posting more. Until then, may the Tree of Life shelter you all!

Crystal Herbalism – Oracle Decks I Love 

Crystal Herbalism – Oracle Decks I Love 

Before I pull a card I surrender to my soul. I listen, with my ear pressed against its vibration. As I shuffle through the deck I close my eyes and bow to the divine within. I reach out energetically for guidance. With each card I pull my soul blossoms, my mind expands, and my devotion grounds.

HERE you will find decks that I personally use in my practice. Oracle cards a great way to tap into your intuition and connect with the higher realms. Through art and poetic messages you are able to dive deeper into your souls purpose.

Heart Chakra Bath:

Crystal Herbalism Heart Chakra Bath 

A bath is an oracle, as we soak in the sacred waters emotions, thoughts, and visions rise to the surface. 

Like a poetic spell, we become bewitched in the comfort of the water. Blanketed in the fluid element that makes up so much of our body. Taking a bath is a spiritual practice, a ritual where you can tap into your energy. From placing crystals in the water to alter the vibration to creating an elixir of essential oils to drop in. to honor the temple of your being, you can create an alter within the space, lighting candles that connect to your soulful presence.

Every Sunday I take a heart chakra bath. I love to use crystals and oils that activate and expand my heart space, healing and strengthening me for the week ahead. Whether you’re an empath, witch, or yogi, it’s important to care for your spiritual self. To release any energy that you’ve picked up during the week. A bath is an energetic and mental detox, creating a space for you to reconnect and realign.

Honor your divinity by soaking int he oracle waters, find peace in knowing that you can create your own sanctuary.

The heart chakra is the center to your being the pathway between your lower and upper chakras: Root, Sacral, Solar, HEART, Throat, Third Eye, Crown. By cleansing your heart, you are able to find more emotional balance and clarity. I like to think of the heart as the place where the soul resides. When someone asks for you, you tend to point towards the center of your chest in response, “Who Me?”

Heart Chakra Bath:

Crystals; Rose Quartz & Green Fluorite
Essential Oils: 3 drops Rose, 3 drops Lavender, 2 drops Geranium
Candle: Lavender Vanilla (or anything floral – flowers bloom like the heart chakra)
Cleanser: Joco Botanicals Heart Chakra Soap
