Laundry magic

Charm your washing machine, or your favorite machine in your building or at the laundromat.

Put a water and heat safe object in your pocket before you put it in the laundry. You can cleanse while you clean.

Laundromats are serious crossroads. A great place to spread or dispel.

Use a washable marker to write a sigal on a dryer sheet.

Or on your detergent.

Sprinkle your detergent into the washer counter clock wise.

Divine using the window in the dryer.
If you use a laundromat try divining other people’s fortunes using the window in their dryer.

Detergent scents are based on herbs and flowers and they have great names. I use Gain for money, Tide for luck, Snuggle for love, Bounce for resilience and OxyClean for confidence.

Always remember there is magic in the mundane.

Quick and Simple Spells II

Maybe we have not the energy or psychic resources to complete something complex. Maybe we cannot wait for the full moon. Maybe we need something in the moment. Simple spells can give us a boost or help us through trying moments.

Peace (for yourself)
Sit quietly in a place you will not be disturbed. Focus on your breathing. Four counts on your breath in. Hold for four counts. Six counts for your breath out. Hold for four counts. Repeat. As you breathe picture light entering you with each inhalation, it expanding throughout your body with each hold, and negativity being pushed out with each exhalation. Repeat the following slowly three times: fàiltich fois (welcome peace)

Peace (for another)
Sit quietly where you will not be disturbed. Centre yourself by focusing on your breath. Count each inhalation. On each exhalation focus your energy and thoughts on extending peace and comfort to the person you have selected. Share your wishes for the other either aloud or in your head. When you have finished, picture your good will reaching out to them and say: pàirtich fois (share peace).

Notes
If you have trouble pronouncing the Gaelic, the English will work just as well.

Ivy Cottage

The whole building is just empty. No dishes (except for the single broken jug), no garden furniture or any other furniture at all, no BBQ equipment or trails of parties gone by. The only thing we find is an assortment of wipeable tablecloth by the yard, mounted on some stakes under the ceiling.    

Spell for Letting Go

Memories can be a blessing that remind us of past joys, hard won accomplishments, and even bittersweet grief. Our memories add to who we are and help create our personalities. Sometimes, however, memories can feel like hexes that drag us down psychologically and physically. Some memories add to our hurt or trigger our depression and anxiety. It is important for our health and general wellbeing to let go of those memories. Although it is not possible nor healthy to fully forget or erase memories, it is possible to unbind them from our path forward. Here is a simple spell to help you let go of and move past painful memories.

You Will Need
1. Three bay leaves
2. Comfrey
3. A blackberry (Bramble) leaf (optional)
4. A small dish of moon water (sub purified water)

Preparation
If it is part of your practice, cast a circle. As you sit with your ingredients before you, centre yourself. Ground yourself in the present moment by focusing on your breath, the sensations of your body, and your connection to the earth.

Casting
Touch the bay leaves to your lips and speak the following aloud and with intent:

Bay leaf
Bringer of wisdom
Form true my intent
That I might not speak
Of pain that is spent

Place the bay leaves in the moon water and fix firm in your mind that is okay for you to discuss how you feel with others, but you should never use the pain you have felt to hurt yourself over again. The pain of the past has been felt, and by letting it go we revoke its permission to wound us.

Touch the comfrey to your forehead and repeat the following aloud and with intent:

Comfrey
Herb of protection
Heal negative thought
I let go of pain
My aching has wrought

Place the comfrey in the moon water and fix firm in your mind that it is okay to release negative thoughts. You do not need to cling to the negative to be protected. Instead, let positivity for your future actions fill your mind so you can more effectively place the past behind you.

If using a blackberry leaf, touch it to heart and speak with conviction:

Bramble
Heal now my heart
Soften my pain
My memory from
Feeling set twain

Place the blackberry leaf in the moon water and fix firm in your mind that what we have felt in the past is not our destiny. We create new beginnings each day.

As you find a green space to pour out the water and leaves, remember that though the memories may come, you are stronger than them and you have made your peace.

Notes
Warning: This spell is to help you release negativity associated with your thoughts and is not a replacement for therapy
Bay Leaf: Sun, Fire; promotes wisdom
Blackberry (Bramble) Leaf: Venus, Water; sacred to Brighid and promotes healing
Comfrey: Saturn, Air; a strong herb for protection against negativity

Edible Spellcraft - Prosperity Tonic

The Universe offers us abundance and we can draw on its energies to prosper. This prosperity goes beyond a materialistic accumulation of wealth; it is the amplification of our energies and brings with it health, happiness, and healing. To be prosperous in a spiritual sense is to have the energies to perform at your best, whether you are casting, creating, meditating or working. Here is a simple elixir to boost your energy and promote prosperity.

You Will Need
1. 3 blackberries
2. 1 ounce lemon juice
3. Tonic water (sub: club soda or sparkling water)
4. Blackberry leaf (optional)
5. A glass (that can hold 6 to 8 ounces)

Preparation
If it is part of your practice, cast a circle. As you sit with your ingredients before you, centre yourself. Ground yourself in the present moment by focusing on your breath, the sensations of your body, and your connection to the earth.

Casting
Place the blackberries and lemon juice in the bottom of the glass and muddle them with a fork. Then pour in the tonic water (approximately 6 ounces). Stir in a gentle deocil (sunwise, clockwise) motion three times. Garnish with the blackberry leaf (optional).

Hold the glass before you and repeat the following with intention:

The Light before me
Brighid beside me
The dark behind
Bring prosperity

Drink the tonic at your own pace.

Notes
Blackberry: the berry is ruled by the planet Venus and the element of earth. The leaf is ruled by the planet Venus and the element of water. Blackberry is sacred to Brighid and draws prosperity
Lemon: ruled by the moon and the element of water, it promotes cleansing and protection

I want your stories.

We need more “fly but the seat of your pants” witches.

The ones that whip out a protection spell with a fast food packet of salt and half a can of warm Dr. Pepper.

Kitchen Witches that add ‘just a bit’ more cinnamon in their baking just to be safe.

The Urban Witches that sprinkle brick dust at the building entry to protect even the asshole neighbor that complains about the incense smells from UW’s apaertment.

Bring me stories of the Bone Witch making jewelry from beloved collection.

A Mommy Witch with rosemary in the EO diffuser because her darling child is studying for a test.

Real, living in the real world, witches. We need you.
