Let’s talk about Glamours
What are Glamours?
The way I think of it, glamours are a great little enchantment that you can put on pretty much anything you want. They are an enchantment to “fool the eye”, as in make someone believe in a mirage, more or less. They can range from beauty, confidence, or even to protect your self.
What kind of Glamours are there?
So many. Literally. The awesome thing about glamours is that there is no real right or wrong way to do them, and they are so simple to do. Glamours change the energy and aura, or the unseen perception, of something. In short, if there is anything that you want to change the “look” or overall feel of, then a glamour is a great way to do it.
How do I use Glamours?
The way you can put a glamour on something all depends on how complex you want to make it. An option may include making a whole ritual of it by including material such as crystals or herbs to convey your intent physically. Another is that you charge the item with the moon, sun, crystals, or whatever you like to charge things with. The most simplest one is to charge your intent while you’re using whatever you want to enchant. Remember, you don’t need anything other than your intent and energy to do witchcraft, the rest can all be optional. After you glamour something, you may need to re-glamour it, so to speak, if you feel like the enchantment is losing some of it’s oompf.
What can I use Glamours on?
Anything. But here’s a list if you don’t know where to start.
✰ Makeup: use a beauty glamour, or a glamour that changes how you want your makeup to appear to others.
✰ Lotion: I like to write confidence, beauty, or protection sigils on my skin in lotion and then rub it in.
✰ Mirrors: glamour it to give the viewer confidence in their reflection.
✰ Yourself: I sometimes use a glamour to keep me “invisible”, so to speak, one that make me blend into the background. But you can do all sorts of glamours to yourself.
✰ Art Supplies: if you’re an artist, you can enchant your pens, pencils, paints, or brushes to give confidence in your art, or to even put a certain emotion into the art itself.
✰ Your home: glamour it with protection to keep negative energies or people our of your space.
Remember: Glamours don’t have to be elaborate if you don’t want them to be.
