Sleep Spell #2

~An anon asked me for dream spells a few days ago. I have some written down that I got from various websites, although I can’t remember where. I’m sure one of the sites was probably this one: http://witchcrafted.org/ So you can look there and see if you find other spells you like that I haven’t posted here. You can also go to my multipurpose spells post and make your own dream spells: http://belladonnaswitchblog.tumblr.com/post/66923228879/multipurpose-spells-gypsy-folk-cures-posted-for-the  

-I will be posting sleep, dream, and nightmare spells for the next few days. Anyway, on to the spell!

~Materials: 

  • One white or blue candle

~Instructions:

  1. Light the candle and walk widdershins (counterclockwise) around your bedroom 3 times while projecting simple phrases into the walls, floors, corners, windows, etc. Such as “Keep me safe”, "I will sleep peacefully here", etc.
  2. Walk deosil (clockwise) around the room 3 times in silence while meditating on positive, relaxing, and restful thoughts, images, and phrases.
  3. Snuff out the candle, whisper the word “Sleep” in the candle as you do so. 
  4. Lay down and go to sleep.

~Note:The spell does not need to be repeated. Instead, light the candle for a few minutes each night and then repeat steps 3 and 4. When the candle is completely burned out, you can repeat the whole spell on a new candle if you wish.

Anonymous asked: Hi! I've always been interested in witches, warlocks, magic and things of that sort. And i've been looking into Wicca for a few years now. Would you help me get started into this life? I'm really interested in it but i don't know how to actually practice or start in it. Sorry to bother you i would really appreciate the help :)


Answer:

  1. ~Well first of all, a warlock doesn’t exist. It’s just a made up thing for stories because I guess the authors felt the term witch was too feminine (probably because during Medieval times, when witches were more prominent, they were usually female. I have no idea why). If anyone tells you they are a warlock, don’t believe them. If you practice witchcraft, you are a witch. It’s as simple as that.
  2. ~The word magic is spelled with a K in witchcraft. Just so not to confuse people on the term. Magick would apply to witchcraft, where as magic would apply to trick magic, like magicians and all that.
  3. ~I get asked this question a lot, about how to get started and everything. My answer will always be to look through my posts and you will find all the basic beginners information you would need. And if you have a question about something I haven’t posted, I will be glad to help you out. Sorry about that, I just get tired of answering the same question all the time XD

Blessed be! :)

Anonymous asked: Greetings, I was wondering what the first few things I should know before I continue the study of Wicca.. Thank you.


Answer:

  1. ~ stay open minded. There is more to this world than you can physically see with your eyes or touch with your hands. Energy, Spirits, (both good and bad), And there are many ways to do things. There are many different divination and healing techniques, different ways to preform spells and rituals, There is not just one way to do things. Don’t like something? Try something else!
  2. ~ If you are converting from another religion, it’s ok to use some of the ideas from that religion in your new path. I have Witch and Wiccan friends who have statues of the Virgin Mary (My friend uses her as the Earth Mother), Buddha, and some of them use crosses and the Star of David (not to be confused with the Pentacle) in their rituals and spells. I come from a Catholic family. About 2 years ago, I realized Catholicism wasn’t for me. But I still pray to the universe and believe in angels. Just use whatever symbols and deities feel right to you.
  3. ~ Always remember, there is no such thing as the “right path” or the “right way to do things”. That’s the beauty of Paganism, It’s your path, no one else’s. Experiment with it. Your path should be designed to suit you and your needs. Make it your own. Good luck, and Blessed Be! <3
  4. ~Also, this post is the summary of the Wiccan Rede. I have the full Rede somewhere, but I can’t remember exactly when I posted it. You might have to find that by yourself. I also have many posts about Paganism, and most of my posts involve things that can be used in Wiccan and Non-Wiccan religions. But I do have many Wiccan posts.

*People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.*

cassiedaweirdo asked: How to be a witch?


Answer:

  1. I don’t answer questions like this because you need to learn about the spirituality part before starting with witchcraft. And obviously, you can look through my posts get a lot of the basic beginner information you need.
  2. When you do get to the witchcraft part of your path, again, I have all the basic beginner posts.
  3. If you have a specific question that wasn’t already answered in my posts, then you can ask me and I will see what I can do.
  4. Your Icon is adorable.. just saying

Herbal Pouch To Be Rid of Nightmares

~An anon asked me for dream spells a few days ago. I have some written down that I got from various websites, although I can’t remember where. I’m sure one of the sites was probably this one: http://witchcrafted.org/ So you can look there and see if you find other spells you like that I haven’t posted here. You can also go to my multipurpose spells post and make your own dream spells: http://belladonnaswitchblog.tumblr.com/post/66923228879/multipurpose-spells-gypsy-folk-cures-posted-for-the  

-I will be posting sleep, dream, and nightmare spells for the next few days. Anyway, on to the dream spell!

~Materials: 

  • 1 white candle
  • 1 small blue pouch/bag
  • Wand (optional)
  • Small quartz crystal(s) (peace, protection, power enhancer)
  • Herbs - Bay leaves (protects, removes negativity) Mustard seed (protection, mental powers, faith) Celery (increases mental/physical powers) Rose petals (love, luck) Rosemary (love, banishing, protection) Allspice (protection) Chamomile/Lavender (sleep, peace, soothing, relaxation) 
  • (You don’t need ALL of those herbs, but you DO at least need one luck herb, one protection herb, and chamomile or lavender (I used both).

~The spell:

  1. Put the herbs and stones in the bag one by one, while stating either out loud or in your head, their intent (which I put in parentheses next to each herb). Then tie the bag closed. 
  2. Light the candles in front of you with the bag in your hands. Focus on the flame and clear your mind. As many times as you’d like, chant "Demons and spirits flee from me. Gone and harmless you shall be. Stay from my dreams, from my mind, and my sight. I ask you to leave in both day and in night." 
  3. Tap the bag with your finger or wand and say "By my will, so mote it be!"
  4. Snuff out the candles and hang the bag above or beside your bed to protect you in your dreams.

~Note: I also put a frankincense cone I had into the bag for protection and psychic strength. If you ever need an herb, but you don’t have it, you can use the incense in its place since the incense is made from that plant. The plant itself may work better though, as it hasn’t been through any mechanical processes, and some incense is cheaply made and my not include the plant at all, just its scent.

-And of course, you can use other protection and psychic strength stones you have. But since I have a multitude of tiny quartz crystals, I just used one of those.

Anonymous asked: I am feeling a little shy right now thus Anon. I stumbled across making elixirs & made myself two elixirs now using a stone of mine (it's one that can't actually be put in water so I use the two glass method)- when I have done this while asking & thanking the stone for I guess putting properties into water to help me-- I well up with tears... Is that normal? Am I doing it wrong? I don't feel sad- I don't not how to explain it. I want to make sure I am not doing something wrong. Thank you.


Answer:

Interesting.. What stone did you use and what was the elixir for? I doubt you did anything wrong. You just put it in the cup and let it sit for a while, right? (Some people let it sit under the sun or moon. It all depends on what you want). Also, did you tear up before or after you drank the elixir?

north-sea-siren asked: Do you have any suggestions for rituals/activities/anything to go through a sort of spiritual cleansing? I feel like during the last several months I've just accumulated a lot of emotional and spiritual "dirt," just a lot of lingering worries, anxiety and negative feelings that I can't seem to escape. I feel like I need to eliminate those bad feelings to get a clearer perspective, I just can't seem to escape them.

The Elements and Their Cardinal Directions

http://www.paganspath.com/magik/elementals.htm

"Pagans have been making associations between all sorts of things in life, in spirit, and in nature for thousands of years. Partly because of the belief that all things are connected and interconnected. Therefore it makes sense that some things work together, in a similar manner, in a supportive direction, for a common purpose…"

~ What is Wicca, Witchcraft and Paganism anyway? ~

~Everyone is on their own path, which all lead to the same place; the Divine place in the Universe. (My quote, not the author’s. Just saying lol)

~If you’re reading this page, chances are you’re either a Wiccan or Pagan, or you’re someone who’s interested in learning more about the modern Pagan movement. You may be a parent who’s curious about what your child is reading, or you might be someone who is unsatisfied with the spiritual path you’re on right now. Perhaps you’re seeking something more than what you’ve had in the past. You might be someone who’s practiced Wicca or Paganism for years, and who just wants to learn more. 

For many people, the embracing of an earth-based spirituality is a feeling of “coming home”. Often, people say that when they first discovered Wicca, they felt like they finally fit in. For others, it’s a journey TO something new, rather than running away from something else. 

~Paganism is an Umbrella Term~

-Please bear in mind that there are dozens of different traditions that fall under the umbrella title of “Paganism”. While one group may have a certain practice, not everyone will follow the same criteria. Statements made on this site referring to Wiccans and Pagans generally refer to MOST Wiccans and Pagans, with the acknowledgement that not all practices are identical. 

~Not All Pagans are Wiccans~

-There are many Witches who are not Wiccans. Some are Pagans, but some consider themselves something else entirely.

-Just to make sure everyone’s on the same page, let’s clear up one thing right off the bat: not all Pagans are Wiccans. The term “Pagan” (derived from the Latin paganus, which translates roughly to “hick from the sticks”) was originally used to describe people who lived in rural areas. As time progressed and Christianity spread, those same country folk were often the last holdouts clinging to their old religions. Thus, “Pagan” came to mean people who didn’t worship the god of Abraham. 

-In the 1950s, Gerald Gardner brought Wicca to the public, and many contemporary Pagans embraced the practice. Although Wicca itself was founded by Gardner, he based it upon old traditions. However, a lot of Witches and Pagans were perfectly happy to continue practicing their own spiritual path without converting to Wicca.

-Therefore, “Pagan” is an umbrella term that includes many different spiritual belief systems – Wicca is just one of many. 

~Think of it this way:

Christian > Lutheran or Methodist or Jehovah’s Witness. 

Pagan > Wiccan or Asatru or Dianic or Eclectic Witchcraft.

-As if that wasn’t confusing enough, not all people who practice witchcraft are Wiccans, or even Pagans. There are a few witches who embrace the Christian god as well as a Wiccan goddess – the Christian Witch movement is alive and well! There are also people out there who practice Jewish mysticism, or “Jewitchery”, and atheist witches who practice magic but do not follow a deity.

~What About Magic?~

-There are a number of people who consider themselves Witches, but who are not necessarily Wiccan or even Pagan. Typically, these are people who use the term "eclectic Witch" to apply to themselves. In many cases, Witchcraft is seen as a skill set in addition to or instead of a religioun. A Witch may practice magic in a manner completely separate from their spirituality; in other words, one does not have to interact with the Divine to be a Witch.

*Author: Patti Wigington
**Source: http://paganwiccan.about.com/od/wiccaandpaganismbasics/a/WWPDiffs.htm

~B.D: As for the last part referring to “eclectic witch”, I am and eclectic witch, but also a Pagan. Because I believe in Paganism and witchcraft and all that, but I take what I like from different traditions and cultures (Egyptian, Hinduism, Buddhism, Wicca, etc.) and use it in my path and craft. That’s what an eclectic does.~
