Toss Your Regrets Into The Wind: A Spell
This spell is actually inspired by something my tarot cards told me, to let go of the pain and hurt and let it be swept away. This is a powder you’ll scatter into the winds.
Wormwood - for all of the bitterness and pain you’ve been holding in
Salt/salt water - to symbolize tears and sadness
Rosemary - to let go of the memories that hold you back
Ashes - to symbolize the things around you that have been painful and unsuccessful, the ways you’ve been burned
Rue (optional) - for regret (I don’t have any rue on hand right now, but it would be a fantastic addition to the spell)
Blend your ingredients together in a small bowl. You don’t need to grind them up if you don’t want to. Mix them, and while you do, think about all of the sadness and pain you’re holding in. Pour out all of your emotions of what’s pent up and hurting. Think of the past hurts and wounds. Pour that sadness into this powder.
Stand outside. (Crossroads would be great for this, but not necessary.) Take your mixture and hold it in front of you. Call forth the elements as you see fit. If you work with spirits/deities, now would be the time to call on them to aid you in this spell. Take a handful of powder and toss it into the wind at one of the four cardinal directions.
If you like to speak during your rituals (I personally don’t, so feel free to skip this), say something along the lines of
To the North I toss my regrets
To the South I toss my sorrows
To the East I toss my sadness
To the West I toss my pain
May the winds carry them away from me
So shall it be.
As you toss your mixture into each direction, picture the wind blowing it away and carrying your sorrows and struggles far away from you. Take a deep breath, and let it all go.
Thank the directions and elements for their assistance and end the spell as you see fit. Then go do something to cleanse and love yourself as a way to welcome in hope and love in place of sorrow and regret. (Write out a list of goals, do a self love spell, etc. Lots of options here!) Take a deep breath, your problems have been blown into the wind!
Hope this helps!
