Elemental Spells

These spells come from the late, great Scott Cunningham.

They are basic spells that you can tailor to fit your needs, using the elements of Earth, Air, Water, and Fire. Obviously, before you work a spell, be sure your intentions are true.

Earth Spell: Place enchanted hebs in a bag and take to a wild place. Dig a hole with your hands and pour the herbs into it.  Visualize your need strongly.  Cover the herbs over and leave the area. It is done.

AIr Spell: Stand in an open place atop a hill or mountain, far from tall trees, buildings or other hills. Hold the enchanted herbs in your power hand (your dominant hand) and facing North, blow a little of them in that direction. Next turn East and do the same, then South. At West, blow all the remaining herbs far from your hand. Visualize your needs strongly.

Fire Spell: Write or make a symbol of your need on a piece of paper cut into a triangle. While visualizing your need, place the appropriate enchanted herbs in the center of the paper and crumple it tightly so the herbs are trapped inside the paper.  Annoint with oils if desired. Build a fire. Throw the herb packet into the fire. As it touches the flame, firmly visualize your need. Continue to do so until the parchment is consumed.

Water Spell: Take enchanted herbs to river, spring, lake or seashore. Hold them tightly in your power hand and visualize your need. Scatter herbs into the water with a sweeping motion.  The Power has been sent.

If you read nothing else here, read this!

Hey all. I am truly blessed to have so many awesome visitors, and I really appreciate all the traffic. Hopefully, what I am learning and sharing is helping you and others as well.
I was checking my stats and I have had several referring links from here I was intriged and went to the site.
It seems like a nice place for RPG, complete with lessons and homework a la Hogwart’s School from Harry Potter.
I started wondering though, some of the potions and other what-nots the students there are making are using ideas gleaned from this site. Which is great! Glean away! 🙂
But I want to make something CRYSTAL CLEAR:
Many plants are toxic. Some will make you sick. Some will even kill you. Painfully.
Essential oils are NOT to be taken internally unless you have spoken with a licensed aromatherapist (which I am not) and your medical doctor.
Some oils and herbs are abortificants, meaning they cause miscarriage. Some induce hallucinations. Some induce other deadly side effects.
Now, I would feel terrible if someone cooked up a concoction using ideas from my posts, and then died because of it.
One in particular I saw involved ingesting mistletoe. BIG NO-NO FOLKS!
So make up your potions to your heart’s content…but be sure you don’t eat or drink anything without the assistance of a licensed herbologist and/or medical doctor.
Now, before anyone gets their knickers in a bunch…Yes I know its a role playing group. But still…I feel the need to put it out there.
Don’t ingest the stuff folks. Seriously.
Ok, now glean away and play nicely.
