Part of what made yesterday so exhausting was that I spent most of the day on preparing for some dreamwork. I charged three items up with energy, and said three incantations repeated three times for each one. So, in total, about 27 incantations went into it. And it *still* didn’t work!
Lilac Daydreams – one of the highest vibration stones to evoke spiritual growth. Elestial stones are a unique kind of crystal due to their layering and sprouting formation.They are connected with the elite spiritual realms and the beings there.
I’ve wanted to cast a proper sleep/dream spell for a while, and enchant one of my talismans to help me attract more vivid, lucid dreams. I think that tonight, I’m going to bathe myself with mugwort, then arrange a purple candle, my sodalite, my amethyst, my sleep spell bottle, some quartz crystals, and my talisman on my altar. I’ll sprinkle some lavender, chamomile flower, and leftover mugwort in a circle around the candle, then light it at dusk after casting my circle. I’ll invoke a few gods of the night and dreams, as well as the Bear Totem, and prepare my talisman(s) to help me sleep and dream better at night. I actually read some very interesting things about the bear that I plan to make a post about!
I’ve been hesitant for a while to try it, since I didn’t really know how, but after reading about it in a book, I cast my first circle for a spell today! I also did a tarot divination beforehand to make sure it was the right time to cast the spell.
My friend had surgery for appendicitis, so I wanted to cast a spell that would help him. I brought representations of the four elements into the circle: sage incense, a white candle, a small bowl of water, and my azurite-malachite. I charged each one and visualized the desired result, before drawing the circle!
Here’s a helpful tip I learned about for circles: if for any reason you need to leave, draw a rectangular shape at the edge of the circle and visualize a door appearing, opening it to leave and closing it behind you then and when you return to the circle.
I also took some notes on how the candle behaved. The flame burned very high, and it caused wax to pour over the sides of the holder. I take that to mean that there was an abundance of energy and success!
Also, at the end, I made sure to release the circle and thank the elementals for their help. Oh, and I also channeled the Raven totem a bit!
I think I’m going to look into whether I can put together a spell to help me with breaking my sugar addiction. Maybe I could use this obsidian arrowhead my darling got for me, and make it into a talisman to help me keep my cravings under control and overcome the aches and pains.
On my altar I set a small bowl of water between my green fluorite and my new azurite-malachite (I’ll get to the azurite-malachite in a bit). I then added elder flower, marjoram, white oak bark, nettle leaf and root, and St. John’s wort, before stirring with a basil leaf. I stirred counterclockwise as I visualized the illness leaving my friend’s body, then clockwise as I visualized healing energy pouring in!
As for the significance of the azurite-malachite, it’s a crystal that can help channel spirit animals, and it’s also tied to my Native American Zodiac sign: the Raven. I’ve started seeing ravens a lot recently, and ravens are associated with occult knowledge, transformation, levity, and lots of other things that I care about a lot. Plus, as a totem animal, the raven can be an aid for long-distance healing! So I invoked the raven a bit to help me.
So, the azurite-malachite is kind of just a personal touch that not everyone needs to use. I hope this spell helps you!
There are lots of different general kinds of readings, but one I wanted to share real quick is readings that use a particular card as a signifier. If you want to specify a certain area of interest for the divination, you can take one of the cards of the Major Arcana and lay it face-up, then build the spread around it. I did that with Temperance yesterday, and it was very illuminating!
I’ve yet to take a picture of it since my phone is out of space for new pictures and I need to fix that, but I made another spell jar! This one I filled with black tea, pennyroyal, meadowsweet, marjoram, lavender flower, spearmint leaf, and lemon balm. I created it to help me find inner peace and balance, as well as cultivating inner and outer strength and combating depression to bring more happiness into my life.
I decided to modify my idea for a spell to boost strength, and made it into a spell jar! I put mugwort, St. John’s wort, and poke root in it, and took a picture that I hope isn’t too awful. I’m planning on making more in the near future and improving my technique!
