I like to use the energy of the Spring Equinox to do a nice thorough cleansing (and cleaning) of my home. This is a process of cleaning your space the old fashioned way and cleansing your space for the spiritual gunk that hides in the corners. It takes time and physical energy. Feel free to take a few days to complete this working or ask loved ones to help you complete the tasks.
For this working you will need:
*Household Cleaning Supplies
*Cleansing Herb Mix
*Yellow Chime Candle (one for every room of your house)
*Favorite Cleansing Incense
Take the salt and pour it into a small bowl. Speak blessings over the salt and ask it to help cleanse your space of spiritual and physical residue. Put a pinch of salt into any cleaning products that you will be using.
Take the Cleansing Herb Mix and make a big pot of tea. While the tea is cooling start to clean your home. Back of the house to front of the house and top to bottom.
When you finish a room speak your prayer for clean and cleansed space and light the yellow chime candle. Make sure that it is in a fire proof container and safe to burn. Move to the next room and complete the process until you've cleaned every room of your home.
When the whole space has been cleaned from top to bottom; back to front take the Cleansing Herb Mix tea and use it to wash the floors. If you only have carpet, use this as a room spray. Finally, light the incense and offer a smoke cleanse to your entire space. When all the candles have burnt out take excess wax and through it out the back of your home.
Sometimes the hardest love to honor is the love of self. This spell is to help you reconnect to what makes you special and offer yourself a little love and blessing.
You will need:
*Roses or your favorite flowers
Set up your ritual space with all the items listed and anything else that you feel called to include. Take some time to ground and center yourself. Cast a circle if you feel so called. Light the incense and the candles.
Smell the flowers and give yourself some time to remember the things in the world that are beautiful, awesome, or fill you with a sense of wonder.
When you feel ready take the anointing oil and anoint your feet with gratitude for how they carry you. Anoint your belly for the spark of life that you carry. Anoint your heart for love and connection. Anoint you throat for speaking sacred words. Anoint your third eye for seeing the truth. And finally, anoint the palms of your hands for connection.
When complete, look at yourself in the mirror and speak words of love to yourself. Say at least three things that you love about yourself to yourself.
When complete, thank your spirit allies. If you have cast a circle, open that energy back up. Write down anything important or interesting that may have come up for you during the spell.
To help you focus on one of your goals for the coming year, perform this spell.
You will need the following items:
*Small White Candle
*Small Piece of Paper
Before performing this spell, make some time to ponder or meditate on what you want to manifest on the year ahead. When you have a clear vision of this goal, write it down on the piece of paper. Be as concise as possible. Fold the paper towards you, as if while you fold the paper you are calling this thing towards you. Anoint the candle with the Success Oil and light the candle. Place the piece of paper under the candle until it has finished burning. White the candle burns, feel, imagine, and visualize this goal falling into place. See your success. When the candle is done burning, take the paper outside and bury it in the earth.
The water that feeds a Rose of Jericho is powerful blessed water. It can be used to bring joy, happiness, and abundance into your life.
For this spell you will need:
*Rose of Jericho
Fill the bowl with water and place the Rose of Jericho in the bowl. Once the flower begins to blossom pour out the water and refresh it. Take the used water and pour it across your front doorstep, add it to you other spell workings, or mix it with an alcohol for longevity and use it as a good luck spray.
Sometimes there are obstacles that keep us from achieving our goals. The good news is magick, ritual, and spell work can help to break up those obstacles. A Road Opening spell can create a smooth path towards your goals. For this spell you will need the following items:
*Mixed Citrus Fruits (at least a dozen)
*Orange Blossom Water
*Orange Glass Encased Candle
Start by dressing and blessing your candle for Road Opening work. Use whatever you have on hand; herbs that are sharp and spicy are you best options. Light the candle and place it in the bathroom, near your tub. Fill your tub with warm water - not too hot. As the tub fills with water, cut all the fruit into slices. Add the fruit and the Orange Blossom Water into the tub.
Get in and scrub. Use the slices of citrus to rub on your skin.* As you do this process, visualize all the blocks clearing away, dissolving and melting; leaving your path open and smooth.
You will need to air dry after the bath. You may feel sticky, but dry completely and then shower off if needed. Allow the candle to burn completely. If you need to snuff it out that's no problem, simply relight it when you are able to pay attention to the candle. Place the selenite under your bed.
Obstacles be gone!
*If you are allergic to citrus do not perform this spell.
Cedar is one of the woods that is associated with psychic powers. This psychic vision oil should be made on the night of a full moon, if possible. The oil can be used to anoint your third eye before doing a psychic reading. It can also be used to anoint the palms of your hands before reading cards. Or you can anoint runes, stones, bones, and other divination systems directly with the oil.
To make the cedar oil you will need:
*Base oil, like almond oil or grapeseed oil
*Cedar essential oil
*2 oz bottle
In the moonlight fill the 2oz bottle with your base oil. Then add in ten drops of the cedar essential oil. If you want bonus points add a sprig of dried cedar in the bottle. Leave the bottle in the window to absorb the moonlight over night.
The next morning your oil is ready for use.
Here's a great spell to perform when you want to increase your luck. Do this working before going for an interview, going gambling, or entering a competition. It can also be used anytime you just feel your luck needs a boost.
For this spell you will need:
* 4 aces from a new deck of playing cards
* Brown sugar
* Cinquefoil (also known as five finger grass)
* 7 silver coins
* Something small to represent the area you want luck
* 1 silver taper or chime candle
Get a large plate that will fit all of the objects. Lay the four aces out in the four directions on the plate. Sprinkle everything with the brown sugar and cinquefoil. Lay out the coins in a way that looks pleasing to you. Put the silver candle in the center of the plate and the luck symbol close to the candle.
Light the candle and let it burn to completion.
Take the coins and aces and leave them out and about in the world. Take the luck symbol and carry it with you.
Washing your front step or just outside of your front door with a protection floorwash can help to keep a lot of negative energy away from where you live. Ideally, this floorwash should be made during a full moon. You will need the following ingredients:
-Red Brick Dust
-Half a Cup of Water
Fill the bucket with warm water and then add all of the ingredients listed above. Use this wash to scrub your doorstep (just outside of your front door). When you are done scrubbing, toss the rest of the water from your front door outwards. Repeat as often as you feel necessary.
As the weather warms up and we can keep our windows open, it's a great time to spiritually cleanse your home. The negative energy can build up over the colder months and it's a good idea to shake that up every once and awhile. There are lots of options for this type of working. Pick the one that works best for you.
*Full House Smoke Cleanse - use your favorite smoke cleanser. Try something like; dried white sage, dried rosemary, dragon's blood, or whatever smoke cleanse you prefer. Close up all the windows and doors of your home. Burn your cleanser until your space is quite smoky. When you feel ready, open all the doors and windows, allowing the smoke to dissipate; taking the negative energy with it. You can even help it along with a fan or broomstraw.
*Walking Smoke Cleanse - use your favorite smoke cleanser. Try something like; dried white sage, dried rosemary, dragon's blood, or whatever smoke cleanse your prefer. Light the cleanser over a fire proof container and starting at the front door, walk the boundary of your house from the inside. Pay special attention to any openings, mirrors, electrical outlets, windows, and the like. Circulate your house until you make it back to your front door.
*Water Cleanse - get a spiritual cleansing mix of herbs and boil them in a pot of water. Strain the herbs out of the water and use this water to cleanse your home. Don't forget the walls, floors, mirrors, and across the threshold of your front door.
*Lemon Cleanse - clean your house as you normally do, when you finish a room light a white candle and slice open a lemon in half. Place the candle and lemon on a plate in the center of the room. Repeat this process until your whole house is clean. When you are finished cleaning extinguish the candles and let the lemons sit until they begin to dry out. Compost them once they are dry. If they get moldy, you will need to repeat the process.
This spell can be used to help increase your self love or create space for a loving environment. For this love spell you will need the following items:
*Open Heart Oil
*Love Herb Mix
*Large Pot of Water
Pour the herbs into the pot of water and bring it to a boil. Once the water is boiling speak your desires to love into the water. Let the water cool and then strain out the herbs. Use this water to wash all the floors in your house. When you are finished pour the water across your front steps.
Take the Open Heart Oil and use this to anoint every door handle in your home. As you touch each door handle (inside and outside) speak your desires for love.
