Healing energy Spell.

Items needed-

  • Salt
  • Lavender/flowers or herbs you wish to use
  • Quartz and Rose Quartz
  • Paper
  • Twine/string or ribbon
  • plate/tray
  • candle
  • pen

Remember, this is the way I do this spell, there is no real right or wrong as long as a spell you cast is filled with personal intent. This is what gives the spell that power!

If you want to use different herbs, layout etc. Do it your way. This is just to give some inspiration or direction. 

This spell is done best on a waning moon, the more full the moon, the more potent the power of your spell!

  1. First off I cleanse the space I am doing my spell in using incense. 
  2. light a candle and place it in the middle of a plate/tray
  3. Write down the person/people you want to send healing vibes to on the piece of paper with what you would like healing for. (As you do your spell visualise the persons you are sending healing energy to, visualise or feel the energy you intend to send.)
  4. Roll it up into a scroll and tie with string/twine/ribbon (whatever you fancy)
  5. sprinkle salt around the candle and place the scroll next to it.
  6. Add Lavender (Great for healing) or whichever herb you choose or even flowers (Maybe the persons favourite flower?)
  7. Place a charged piece of quartz and rose quartz next to the candle and leave to burn for at least an hour. ( I place my plate under the moonlight on the windowsill as extra power)

Light as many nights as you wish. When the person/persons are well again, burn the scroll or bury it in a dark place. Remember it is about listening to that “inner voice” letting it guide you in your craft.

An interesting firing method.

From @venturacollegeceramics - Obvara firing. The pot is fired to 1500^F, dipped in the Obvara mix (flour, sugar, yeast) to create burned surface then in water to stop the coloration. #ceramic #clay #jenchiwu #venturacollegeceramics #ceramics #pottery #potteryvideos #lowfireceramics #obvara #obvarafiring #obvarapottery #marciaselsor

~A Tale of Midsummer~

Come, gather round and render tales

Of sunlit skies and rugged flames

Of hands outstretched towards the sky

Of crafted wheels and bales of fire

Of beating drums and crowing men

Of lyrics hollered towards the glen

Of ancient stones and weathered walls

A hallowed sunrise praised by all

A time to mark the longest day

An ancient feast, a grand parade

A jig composed of joining hands

A desperate prayer to bless the land

Don crowns of green and ribbons white

Come, sit beneath the pale moonlight

With merriment and love and fire

The solstice honours Earth’s true sire
