To Awaken Latent Magical Abilities
Requested by @skullkisser-jynx
- One boiling crucible
- Source of fire
- Wooden Spoon
- Mortar & Pestle
- Vial or other container for storing the potion
- Wand (your hand will suffice if you lack a wand.)
- Sieve – for straining the liquid.
- One pint purified water
- 2 fresh lemons
- Handful of fresh mint
- An orange peel
- 1 small piece of fresh ginger root
- Three coffee beans
- One sage leaf
Most opportune time for conjuring: Monday during a Full Moon, although any time is the time for magic.
Prepare for brewing as you would for any magical working. Cleanse the space and yourself as you see fit. You may wish to illuminate the workspace by candlelight. If incense is desired, sweeten the air by burning a mixture of frankincense, cedar, dragon’s blood, or any other fragrance that pleases you.
1. Bring the pint of water to a boil, then reduce the heat and allow it to simmer.
2. Squeeze the juice from the lemons and contribute to the water.
3. Add 1 tablespoon of honey.
Bring to a boil again and stir clockwise, making sure all three are combined as one. Concentrate on your goal while stirring.
4. Add the handful of fresh mint leaves, which should first be washed to remove any excess dirt.
5. Crush the ginger root into a paste and add to the brew.
Bring the brew to a boil again. Continue to stir clockwise while concentrating on your goal.
6. Contribute the orange peel.
7. Add the 3 coffee beans.
8. Add the sage leaf.
Allow the potion to boil for the space of thirteen minutes, stirring frequently while contemplating your magical abilities. After this time has passed, remove the potion from the fire. Point your wand at the brew (or the index finger of your hand of power) and project energy into the concoction. Allow this enchantment spell to be recited. (Fair warning: I really need to work on my rhymes. )
Power to charm, bewitch, and conjure
Locked within a deep, dark slumber
When to my lips, this brew is brought
My magic powers will then wake up
Project as much energy into the potion as you deem necessary. Afterwards, the liquid can be strained through the sieve and poured off into the vial or other container. It may then be consumed immediately before meditation, magical workings, or going to bed. Pay close attention to your dreams or any visions you might receive as they may very well point to which types of magic you ought to explore.
I think it goes without saying that you consume potions at your own risk. The ingredients given are noted as safe, however, everyone’s body reacts differently. Please note, the potion recipes are developed for effectiveness, not taste! (How many Witches on TV look forward to actually drinking a potion! 😉)
This potion request was to awaken magical abilities. I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve certainly had days where I’ve been groggy and felt like my magic was down. I wish I had written this simple potion ages ago! It could be a fun little way to jump start your magical abilities on one of those slower mornings.
As far as the ingredients go, everything selected is associated with awakening. Think about eating a lemon. Just thinking about it should make your mouth salivate and provoke a physical response. This is the same type of awareness we want to create for our magical abilities. The coffee beans are the main ingredient of a potion made my millions of people every day! No surprise why they’re included – they symbolize the awakening of those abilities. Ginger represents power, orange peel and honey represent the sweetness of life and the sage leaf represents wisdom.
