can i use this spell or

I don’t typically cast curses, but when I do I usually use protective stones. Intuitively, though, I’m drawn to mirrors as protection. How would you arrange mirrors after a curse in order to protect yourself from anyone returning the spell or casting in retaliation?

I don’t really do free spell advice on demand but since it’s Curse A Cheeto Day I will make an exception. These are a few guidelines I follow:

  • Make your spell undetectable. Just eliminate the possibility of blowback altogether.
  • If they do detect it, make it so the origin point is obscured, so “return to sender” isn’t an easy thing for them.
  • Design the spell so it’s not easily logically reversed, for instance, “everything you do as the US president will make your hair fall out” is a spell that can only effect a few people in the world so if it’s reflected back on you nothing really happens.
  • Make your spell friendly to you. Why would it turn on you? You are friends and it likes you.
  • Have an entity oversee the spell that will not attack you. You don’t have to be into deities. Pick a cartoon character that would like you.
  • I’m not answering the mirrors question directly but think about what devices utilize mirrors to obscure identities, project, or otherwise cast illusions. Get flexible. Also think of what a mirror can become, symbolically, spiritually, and in fairy tales and folklore.

I have not given specific details on how to implement these but secrecy is your best defense, which is why I anonymized your ask. Always remember that being creative is the most important element here, your imagination is capable of its own unique magic no one else can replicate.

Not taking further spell questions! I got a lot of stuff left to do today.

I Am Going To Throw This Fucking Spell Now So Wotch The H*ck Out

*Woo!* I got all my lesson planning done for next week so now I’ve got a few hours that I can spend writing in my grimoire 🕯📖🕯

The witchiest thing I did this week was cleansing my house while I mopped the floors using my normal cleansing floorwash. I made sure to clean the floors, but also all the windowsills and the door frame using the floorwash. My house feels a lot lighter now.

In my grimoire at the moment I’m writing a balance sheet on lunar phases and how they can be used for spells on one page and curses on the other.

I’m also hoping to add curio items to my daily rune draw (I collected a crab claw from the beach which is definately going in the pouch! There’s also an acorn, a tooth from my dog, a small sd card and other trinkets in the pouch). Hopefully by adding these items I will get greater clarity on modern issues (which is where my runes seem to struggle).

anonymous asked:

Ive started working with sigils lately and im just wondering how you, specifically, charge them?

Hello, another great question! Sigils are tools of the craft and can technically be charged in any kind of way that you are most comfortable with.

The most common way to charge a sigil is by incorporating the elements; the elemental can be pulled from the type of spell/magick work you are doing, the elemental sign of yourself or the person you are working on or from the environment you find yourself in while performing the charge ritual. 

I find that there’s a fork in the sigil road, so to speak, and you need to consider if you want to charge and destroy your sigil or charge and keep it first. So once you figure that out, then you can move on to the proper charging method.

Destroying the sigil with a power charge means a one-time use, draw it out, sew it into your memory and discard of it by using one, or a mixture of the elements. 

  • Dig a hole and bury the sigil to represent Earth
  • Throw it away in a body of natural water to represent Water
  • Burn it down to ashes to represent Fire
  • Rip it up into fine pieces and release it into the wind to represent Air
  • Envision the sigil glowing/burning into your mind in bright white light energy and release it mentally into the universe to represent Spirit.

Charging the sigil to keep is fairly similar, only we get rid of the whole destructive part. 

  • You can keep stones and herbs that are beneficial to the specific sigil close by. Heck, you can even collect a little jar of dirt and keep it near the sigil to represent Earth.
  • You can expose the sigil to something representing Water. This can literally be a cup water or even a painting/photo of the element.
  • You can keep a burning candle nearby the sigil to represent Fire.
  • You can allow your sigil to sit in the light of the sun or the moon to represent Air
  • You can also use the envisioning technique here too in the exact same way to represent Spirit.

To be honest, charging sigils mentally is one of the easiest ways if you’re just starting out and have very little physical tools to work with. I have mentioned before that our minds are our most powerful tool and it only takes our true belief and intention to manifest what we need and want into the world around us.

Other forms of charging sigils depend on the path that you follow. You may find that some witches use chants or specific spells; these can be passed down from generations before or found by looking around the interwebs for one that fits your specific intentions. There are witches who will use a drop of blood, spit, tears or other DNA either from themselves or from the person they are working on and smear it on the sigil. You can rub certain oils on them (I covered oil types in my last ask about witchy tools in general) to charge. Some witches charge with salts and even with the flowing vibrational energy between their own hands. It really all boils down to what you are more comfortable with and what your intuition tells you will be the most beneficial. :)

I hope this could help, take care and blessed be. x

xanthas927  asked:

May I ask how Tarek fights in combat? Was the arm he lost his good one?

No, he’s right handed, but his prefered style was using two handed weapons so it did curtail his effectiveness, and most prosthetics caused him great pain after a time. But his new arm has solved that problem, and in battle he is aggressive but conservative, holding back the stronger blows he is capable of inflicting when a single cut will do.

Originally posted by aartyom

His glass arm also grants new opportunities for battle. Along with any divine spells he can implement, he can summon weapons of hard light and intense radiance to aid him. Thus he can form his own weapons or enhance those already in hand.

anonymous asked:

hi there! i am a super inexperienced novice witch and i don't have the necessary prowess or materials to do the exact hex on trump tonight, do you have any advice as to a way i could help out?

you can use what you do have, and try to bind him in your own way. 

personally i’m a bit >_> about the way that spell was written, it has so many ingredients and feels over complicated, but that’s not a helpful opinion

Cold-Killer Curse Jar

I came down with an annoying cold today: sore throat, tired, achy, irritable…
So, in addition to the usual extra rest and vitamin C, I thought, why not help things along with a spell?

The following is not a spell for healing; it is a spell for killing the thing that ails you - a curse for whatever virus or bacteria dares sicken you.

- Instructions -

   Gather:

  • 1 small jar
  • salt(s) (I used a combination of table salt, garlic salt, and a handful of pieces of the large, chunky ice-melting salt that sits in a bucket by the door to my apartment building)
  • garlic (in whatever form you prefer - I used powdered)
  • crushed red pepper (or some other spicy ingredient to give the spell more kick)
  • your own sick self
  • black thread or candle for sealing

Place the ingredients (excluding yourself, of course) into the jar. Amounts can be whatever seems best to you.

Looks like some kind of pretty sand garden, doesn’t it?

Now cough, sneeze, spit, or some combination of these, into the jar. Toss those germs into the mix! They shall serve as markers for their brethren. 

Having done that, place the lid of the jar on tightly. Now shake the damn thing. Shake it vigorously. Pour all your anger and frustration and hatred for the germs into that shaking motion. Rattle ‘em up. And while you do, say the following words:

Be decimated,
Be desiccated,
And trouble me no longer!

Bind the jar with black string and/or seal with wax (I didn’t have a black candle on hand, so I opted for the string).

Keep the jar around, within easy reach, if convenient. You can shake it as often as you like. Look at the salt and imagine the germs shriveling up and dying - a satisfying revenge for the trouble they have caused you.

Important Note: This spell is meant only to help you overcome what ails you. It is not a substitute for taking care of yourself. You still need to rest, eat, and drink properly. And if the illness is serious, SEE A DOCTOR! Don’t rely on a curse to do it all for you. Being well is about more than killing germs anyway.

Okay, dear Sebastian’s upcoming movies, I need some updates.

Where is my WHALITC (which I pronounce Wall-ih-tika idk why with the ‘a’ at the end) twitter, instagram, something? Where’s my release date and hints of a trailer??

Where is my INH (nnnnuh) twitter and instagram and distributor info and updates about that post-production and RELEASE DATE?

Where is the Logan Lucky (because I can bother to spell it out idk why) oh wait - we kinda got info on that one, but I’d like a name for his character, please and thanks

Where is some info about if this whole TLFM (tee-liff-um) is actually going to be made or not and when and why is it taking so long?

I am thirsty AF and I feel like y’all are keeping things from us, intentionally or not. Gimme it! ffs

Theory on Toffee and Marco

What if Toffee and Eclispa, were friends, just like Marco and Star? What if they’re relationship were similar to that of Star and Marco?

I noticed something when I was watching the “storm the castle” episodes, Toffee is very neat and orderly, (you can see his adjust a plate towards the center) just like Marco with his safety stuff, he obviously knows how to fight and out wit his enemies.

When he is talking to Marco, he is called “boring” and you can see a distinct look of pain in his face as if he thought he wasn’t always “boring”.

And is Eclispa really evil? Sure she has dark spells but is she truly, truly evil. In season 2 when the wand is split in two, we can see that is has dark and light. But together it can be used by the wilder, into anything they want. I’m not entirely sure if Eclispa was always evil but I’m thinking that maybe she was just like Star, and when she met toffee, I bet he was entirely different than who he is now.

What if Toffee is doing whatever he is doing, to help bring his friend/ lover back?

FOR ANYONE PARTICIPATING IN THE BINDING OF DONALD TRUMP TONIGHT

I personally don’t know if I’ll be joining, because I don’t like how over complicated the spell seems and curses usually back fire at me, I’m not good at them.
But anyway, if you DO want to join the mass curse tonight, but you don’t have the ridiculous ingredients listed, let me simplify this spell for you.
Orange candle stub/picture of Trump: these are just representatives of him and are easily replaced with his name written on paper.
Elemental Representatives: you can use whatever you usually use to represent them/whatever you have at disposable that does. Even white candles that you’ve placed in the proper directions and asked the elements to bless (i.e East for air, south for fire, west for water, and north for earth.)
Tarot card: A crappy hand drawn picture will do just fine.
Good luck to everyone participating tonight, I genuinely hope you succeed.

anonymous asked:

I was going to do the binding spell for trump tonight. The thing that says what you need ect. Says you need an orange candle, I don't have one, I do have gold or yellow, can I still do it with either of these?

Yellow would probably work, the idea was to match his skin tone. If you use the gold one you could work in like melting away his false glitter/gold. You could also just use a white candle as a general substitute. Some articles suggest using a baby carrot instead of the candle. Good luck lovely, I hope I was helpful!

one word spells

As long as you can focus your energy and set your intention your spell should work, so I’ve designed these 5 spells using just one word for a Witch who needs a quick fix.

Mariquil

Pronounced mar-e-quil

Used to calm a temper or an upset person. From the latin word for sea, mare, and the english word tranquil. Essentially you are calling the sea inside them to be still. For better results cast with wet hands.

Univert

Pronounced Uni-var

Used for faster transport. I use it at the train station to have a shorter wait time but really its designed for traffic lights. By combining uni from universe and vert,the french word for green, you’re essentially asking the universe to make your path green.

Visididen

Pronounced Vis-e-did-en

Used to go unnoticed or invisible. Taken from the english words vision and hidden. For best results chant it softly while visualising yourself turning transparent.

Lapagna

Pronounced Lap-ag-na

Used when you just need someone to shut the f**k up but are too polite to say so. Taken from the Latin words lapis and magna, meaning stone and voice. For best results hold a stone or some earth while casting, if they’re really pissing you off just throw the stone or dirt at them.

Bavarignis

pronounced Bav-are-ig-ni

Used to strike up a conversation or to continue a conversation. Taken from the French word bavarder, which means chat, and the Latin word ignis, which means fire. Basically you’re asking for the conversation to spark or catch fire. For best results flick a lighter in your pocket or light a match.

Spellcasting Combat Narration for D&D

image credit: Ben Wootten

So I was gonna include this in my other article on narrating combat, but it proved far too lengthy, so I made this into part 2! 

Combat is easy to describe compared to narrating spell attacks. I ran into this problem last session when I was getting into detail telling the barbarian how they tore off an ogre’s head but then the druid just kept using Fire Bolt and I kept defaulting to “you shoot a bolt of fire at his face.” I’m going to try and vary things up with these lists and help everyone else in the process! I am organizing them by energy type.

Mode of Attack

Half of a spell’s attack is how the caster shapes their spell. The same spell can look very different with every casting if you have a creative DM. Feel free to switch it up each time it’s cast, or vary the same spell when cast by different characters of different classes.

Attack Words

Generic shapes and terms that will launch from the caster’s hand.

Helix, Spiral, Beam, Erratic, Mote, Bolt, Stream, Blast, Burst, Blade, Arc, Miasma, Cloud, Eruption, Wave, Cone, Missile, Rune, Glyph

Class-Based Ideas

  • Bard
    • Energy manifests from thin air a foot in front of their instrument as they play
    • Energy is shaped like ribbons of written music that ripples towards enemies
    • Several tiny motes of energy appear with each note sung or played. Each point of damage comes from a mote hitting the opponent (rolls a 4 out of a d6, 4 of the 6 note-motes hit)
  • Cleric
    • Energy falls from the sky or emerges from the ground as the cleric prays
    • Beam of energy originates from holy symbol
    • Spell attack should highlight that the cleric is granted their powers from a greater power, don’t have the energy come from their hand/finger. Have the energy come TO them, and then be thrown at the enemy.
  • Druid
    • Energy is shaped like an animal.
    • Energy rushes forth from the surrounding wilderness and zooms past the druid and toward the foe.
    • Much like Cleric, energy shouldn’t come from the caster. It should come from elsewhere before being thrown at the enemy.
  • Fighter (Eldritch Knight)
    • Energy blasts from their bound weapon pointed at the enemy.
    • Energy fires from their mouth as they yell.
    • Energy surrounds their weapon and is used in tandem with it (if close enough)
  • Monk (Way of Four Elements)
    • Literally just watch Avatar: the Last Airbender and do that.
  • Paladin
    • Most Paladin spells are smite-based, so they usually happen when an attack hits. Otherwise, let the energy come from a higher power like the Cleric.
    • Energy bursts forth from within the creature hit
    • Energy surrounds weapon right as the strike lands
    • Energy falls from the sky or erupts from the ground
  • Ranger
    • Honestly, most Ranger spells often seem a lot like man-made traps like Cordon of Arrows (arrow traps), Fog Cloud (smoke grenade), or Grasping Vine (slipknot trap). But otherwise, Play it like the Cleric where the energy comes from a higher power.
    • Energy takes the form of the Ranger’s animal companion or an animal they associate with.
    • Spells seem to cast automatically whenever the Ranger is in a tight spot, almost as if nature itself is protecting them. The Ranger gives an approving nod whenever this happens in thanks.
  • Rogue (Arcane Trickster)
    • Energy is always accompanied by a shimmer of glitter
    • The Rogue plays with the energy over their fingertips as they whistle before casting the spell.
    • Energy enchants one of the Rogue’s daggers and casts the spell by tossing the dagger at the intended location or target.
  • Sorcerer (Draconic Bloodline)
    • Energy takes the shape of a dragon of your bloodline.
    • Energy surges forth from your breath
    • All energy takes the shape of your bloodline dragon’s energy type, regardless of the actual energy type. For instance, a sorcerer of a blue dragon’s bloodline that casts Burning Hands or Cone of Cold keeps the energy type but shapes the fire and cold damage into the form of a bolt of lightning. 
  • Sorcerer (Wild Magic) 
    • Energy takes on many random forms, never under the full command of the Sorcerer.
    • Energy erupts from random places in the environment when the Sorcerer calls upon them.
    • Energy bubbles and fizzes with all energy types (but mostly the one called upon), as if a piece of Limbo was thrown at the enemy.
  • Warlock (Archfey)
    • Your energy shimmers with iridescent colors and showers enemies with sparks of glitter.
  • Warlock (Great Old One)
    • Your magic corrupts and twists the flesh of the target of your spell, regardless of the energy type.
  • Warlock (Fiend)
    • Energy takes the shape of the unholy symbol of your patron.
  • Wizard (Abjuration)
    • Energy shoots forth from your magical wards, arcing towards your enemies.
  • Wizard (Conjuration)
    • You conjure a short-lived elemental of the energy type you need. It soars at the enemy.
  • Wizard (Divination)
    • You weave the glowing threads of fate in the palms of your hands, tweaking reality to cast your spell.
  • Wizard (Enchantment)
    • You enchant an object to exude the energy and toss it at the enemy.
  • Wizard (Evocation)
    • I mean, you just sorta blast them. That’s what this school’s about.
  • Wizard (Illusion)
    • Your spell usually spawns two or three illusory copies. When the attack misses, the enemy simply managed to dodge the right duplicate.
  • Wizard (Necromancy)
    • Your energy takes the shape of a skull screaming as it flies toward the enemy
  • Wizard (Transmutation)
    • You transmute the energy out of the surrounding environment and fire it at the enemy

On-Hit

So if half of a spell’s attack is the shape and travel of the spell, the other half is when the spell hits. I organized this list by energy type, as different energies will do different sorts of things when they hit a creature. This is mostly a collection of interesting effects, colorful language, and examples.

Fire

  • Your bolt of fire singes their armor (burning cloth, blackening leather, discoloring metal)
  • A tiny bead of fire explodes on contact
  • Showers them with red sparks
  • Your attack leaves behind a billowing trail of smoke
  • A fast-travelling meteor of flame soars from the sky towards the enemy.
  • Your flames leave blisters and cracked skin in its wake.
  • Your fire blackens the enemy’s flesh

Cold

  • You freeze the moisture in the air into icy daggers that fall onto your enemy
  • You freeze the water in their blood to damage them
  • Their skin turns blue and numb
  • You literally hurl a snowball at them.
  • Your spell leaves them covered in a layer of frost
  • A buildup of ice covers where your spell hit. (it’s easily shattered once they move, though)
  • A blast of icy wind and rain leaves them shivering.

Thunder

  • A crack of thunder pummels your foe
  • A high-pitched, deafening shriek focuses itself on the target
  • A thin trail of blood races from the foe’s ears from a sound no one else can hear
  • The enemy falls to their knees cupping their hands over their ears, gritting their teeth
  • You buffet the target with waves of thunderous sound
  • The ground shakes with the force of your spell. Brittle glass objects nearby shatter.

Lightning

  • Lightning comes from the sky to smite your foe
  • You all smell the faint odor of ozone before a bright bolt of lightning streaks toward the target of your spell
  • Before your enemy can blink they are showered in electrical sparks followed by crippling pain
  • The enemy’s back stiffens as the powerful current of lightning surges through them
  • Your attack leaves a permanent web of lightning shaped burns all over one side of their body
  • Your blast of lightning causes their skin to rupture as it travels through their body

Acid

  • Your acid sizzles as it burns a new, unnatural color into their skin
  • The attack melts their flesh, leaving them permanently disfigured at the site of the spell
  • Your spell’s acid causes blue fire to burn where it hit their skin, and bleaches their armor and belongings
  • A rancid smell fills the foe’s nostrils as the acid bubbles on their bare skin, burning through the simple cloth of their shirt.

Poison

  • You spew a poisonous cloud from your mouth at your opponent
  • A spectral viper or insect is flung at the opponent, biting them and filling them with magical venom
  • Your index and middle finger each grow a poisonous fang which you sink into your opponent’s arm (melee range spell attacks only)
  • The enemy’s mouth fills with a foul tasting liquid which forces its way down their throat

Necrotic

  • Your target’s flesh bubbles and boils as a black ichor sputters from the spell’s origin
  • The foe’s flesh festers with magical disease as boils and wounds quickly cover the affected area
  • A skeletal hand wriggles free from beneath the earth, flying towards the target
  • An incorporeal undead shrieks as it flies from your finger toward the enemy to deliver the spell’s effect
  • Black energy swirls around your arm before launching towards the enemy as if it had a life of its own
  • Your iridescent blue magic enters the target’s body and afflicts their soul, making them momentarily dazed as their eyes glaze over.

Radiant

  • A holy light shines from the skies to harm your target, regardless of time of day or obstructions
  • A halo of radiant energy surrounds your head and blinds the target as they gaze upon it
  • Enemies that aren’t of your alignment hear the whispers of your deity moments before being enveloped in a blinding white light
  • The foe’s eyes and mouth emit warm light and they howl in pain
  • A blade of radiant energy slashes through the victim, leaving a trail of blinking motes of light in its wake
  • The enemy’s skin blisters from the raw positive energy surging through them

So essentially this whole post was a creative writing assignment for myself, but I hope that it gives you guys new creative ideas for new spells or new ways to describe existing spells! They don’t much affect the mechanics of the spell at all, so most DMs I suspect will be fine with most of these descriptions if you want your character to cast spells a certain way.

🌙 Making Moon Water 🌙

🌙 how do i make moon water?

get some water, leave it out under the moonlight, for as little as an hour to as long as all night, as long as it feels charged. bottle it before it touches direct sunlight, keep it in a shadowy place. 

🌙 what can i use moon water for?

moon water is called for in a lot of spells, but it can also be used in potions, cleansing, bath spells, anything you might need the moon’s power for.

🌙 does it have to be done during the full moon?

it can be done during any phase, but keep in mind, each phase will rend different properties. full moon water will have different magical properties than moon water made during the new moon or a quarter moon, or a waxing or waning moon. here’s a quick guide on each phases’ meanings

🌙 what can you put it in and what can’t you? 

you can put herbs in it if you like, i would avoid putting crystals in it because that can damage them and make them dissolve and it could make the water toxic, etc. most edible herbs are fine though!

🌙 does it need direct moonlight at all times?

it does not need to be direct moonlight constantly, after it’s charged, if you don’t need to recharge it unless you can’t feel its energy anymore.

🌙 does being in the sun negate the moon water’s magic?

according to some witches it doesn’t, but according to others being in the sun will make it sun water, or sun&moon water. ultimately this is up to you.

🌙 there’s light pollution/something blocking the moon, will it still work?

thankfully light bounces off stuff, including the moon’s! it might not be as possibly potent as you could make it, but in which case you could leave it out a little bit longer. 

🌙 can you use snow/rain/storm/etc water to make moon water?

you can use whatever kind of magical water you want to make a combination of waters, snow-moon water, storm-moon water, etc. however, keep in mind it may give the moon water a bit of an extra magical quality. 

🌙 do i have to use a clear bottle/jar? 

if the light can shine through it, it’ll work.  you can make it with whatever kind of bottle you like as long as the light can touch the water in some ways.

Ok, witches! I gotta tell you about meteorological symbols!

There’s one for every weather condition you can think of! You can probably find a longer list in the back of a dictionary, or just search Google images.

  • You can use them as sigils on their own, or use them as inspiration to make your own sigils!
  • Use them for weather summoning!
  • Use the symbols as a substitute for certain weather conditions! For example, if a spell calls for rainwater and you live in the desert, use the meteorological symbol for heavy rain.
  • Use the metaphorical attributes of the symbols in spells! For example, a hurricane for added energy, or fog for concealment.
  • The list goes on!
Becoming a more active practitioner through everyday magic

Four years ago if you asked me what it took to be an active magical practitioner, I would have told you that it took spells upon spells cast, rituals every weekend, elaborate offering ceremonies, and so on. If you had told me about “everyday” magic, I would have pouted and complained that it wasn’t “real” enough. Shame on me!!

But the truth is, you can be a “practitioner” without formal spells, rituals, and ceremonies. What makes us practitioners, seekers, whatever you like to call it isn’t the activities, but the beliefs. I also don’t want to make it seem like you must be cramming lots of magic in to your daily life to be a proper practitioner; it is quite alright to be a nonpracticing practitioner, and that is a completely valid path.

However, some of us would like a little more active practice in our daily lives. After all, we have been given a magic wand. What is the fun in letting it collect dust in the cabinet? I think doing practical, everyday magic is loads of fun. It also has the added benefit of giving you practice and experience outside of big spells and rituals which many people don’t have the time, energy, or supplies for.

What do I mean when I say everyday magic? I mean putting small amounts of magical energy behind mundane actions to turn them in to magical actions. When done regularly throughout the day this can turn a regular day in to a very magical one. This kind of everyday magic can be done again and again in any situation that you like, to help support you, ease your burdens, and improve your quality of life.

Any situation can be made magical, from drinking your morning juice to taking a walk down the sidewalk. It is up to you, as a practitioner, to decide when and where you are going to take “everyday” and add the magic. I will give several generalized spells below that you can adapt to everyday situations.


Stirring Magic in to Liquids

Useful for tea, coffee, beverages, soups, elixirs, etc.

This magic will take effect once the liquid is consumed. Or, the liquid may passively give off the effect in to the room.

Take a wooden or metal spoon; metal conducts energies more easily. You may also use your pointer finger on your right hand if you prefer.

Strongly imagine what magical effect you would like to occur. In my morning coffee I like to stir bravery and boldness. For you, perhaps you would like to stir in peace or calmness (the opposite of anxiety). In a hearty soup you may wish to stir happiness and coziness. In a brew meant to affect the ambiance of a room, perhaps a general positive energy or cleansing vibration is best.

Take the spoon or your finger and stir the brew clockwise, while vividly imagining the effect you want to take place. Imagine that this effect is literally being stirred in to your liquid, just as if you were stirring cream in to it. At a certain point you will feel as if this magic is complete, but if you doubt yourself, rest assured the spell is complete after nine stirs.

Then, you must seal the spell. You can say “so mote it be.” I like to clap or snap my fingers. Immediately consume the beverage or set it aside to allow its ambient effects to take place.

If you prefer your liquid to take something away, stir it counter-clockwise. For example, to cure anxiety, stir clockwise for peace, or counter-clockwise to reduce anxiety itself. Do not combine clockwise and counter-clockwise stirring in the same liquid.

Exhaling Energies

Releasing energies to either fill a room or be dissipated.

Inhale deeply and be acutely aware of what energies are inside of you. Maybe you are filled with beautiful energies that you want to share with the world. Maybe you are filled with negative energies that need to be released so you will feel better.

If you are filled with negative energies, try going outside if possible or in to an open space where the air and winds can help dissipate your energies.

Inhale again. As you inhale with focus, energies will be drawn towards your lungs where they can be naturally expelled. Inhale until you feel very certain that the energies are in your lungs and ready to be moved away.

When you are prepared, take a final deep breath and imagine the energies are scooped up on the air in your lungs, ready for transport. As you exhale, do so deeply, so that there is not one trace of air left in your lungs.

If you are exhaling negative energies send a wish on your breath that the winds dissipate your energies and neutralize and purify them. If you are exhaling beautiful energies for others to enjoy, just let them sit.

Inhale and exhale several more times until you feel clean and purified.

Another excellent way of dispelling negative energy is to exhale through pursed lips, like how people do when they’re pissed off. That is a real magical technique of releasing negative energies and stress. I do it often at work, and it really helps.

If you want to try something more advanced, this technique also works with talking and singing.

Applying Substances to Your Body

Add energies directly to your body or clean away negativity.

If you are using soap, lotion, makeup, or any substance that is added to your body, try this brand of magic.

First, intensely visualize what you want to occur. It could be a beauty spell to clear skin and make it soft and delicate. It could be war paint to make you stronger, or a mask to glamour yourself. As you hold your cleanser/lotion/etc., you must simply believe that when you apply it, the effects you desire will take place.

Rub in clockwise circles to bring things (beauty, power, grace, protection) and counter-clockwise circle to take things away (blemishes, fear, clumsiness). If circles do not apply to what you are doing (as is the case with spritzing on perfume or applying eyeliner) do not worry about it, just do your thing along with visualization.

Once you are done applying your substance, seal this spell by saying “so mote it be” or any other closer you use. If the substance requires rinsing off, as is the case with soaps, do so after the closing.

This type of magic can be used when applying lotion, soap, cleansers, hair products, makeup, perfume, cologne, body sprays, etc.

Quick Object Enchantments

Good to make an everyday object magical in the short term.

This quick enchantment won’t last long but depending on your level of skill it should be good for an hour or two. Remember that the magical enchantment should reflect the mundane uses for the object. Use your glasses for an enchantment to see lies, or your shoes for an enchantment to stand strong.

Hold the object and vividly imagine what you want to happen. Find a center of power within yourself – for many it is the solar plexus or spine.

Using your imagination, visualize that some of that energy comes out through your hands and in to the object you are holding. Wildly and with an iron-clad will, truly believe that the object you are holding is being infused with magical intent. Absolutely see within your mind that what you desire to occur will occur when you use the item. There is no question about it – your enchantment will work.

As soon as you feel the true faith that your object is enchanted, seal the spell by saying “so mote it be” or your preferred method of sealing. Wear, use, or otherwise interact with the object as normal and its enchantments will take effect immediately.
