Scott Cunningham

Today is the anniversary of Scott Cunningham’s death. For those of you who don’t know him, he was a prolific Wiccan author. He wrote many books on the Craft of Wicca and was a guiding light for many who walk the pagan path. I hope that wherever he is these days, he is shining in the light, knowing that he helped many people, myself included, with his wise words.

Notes on spells

 To me, a spell is not much more than a focused request. We use herbs, oils, candles, moon phases, stones…all symbols of whatever we need or desire.

A spell is a means of focuing intent. If you assemble several things who’s folk meanings all correspond to the desired effect, you feel a sense of power in the combination. If I want to increase money, for example, I might add  green stones to my spell, and burn a green candle. These are colors representative of money, and used together, their combined symbolism gives focus to the intent.

Is a spell different than a prayer? I think opinion differs here. Technically, a prayer is asking a favor of a Higher being. A spell is asking a favor as well, but it relies more on the practitioner’s focus than an outside force. Of course, many, many spells invoke various Gods and Goddesses…whereby making a spell and a prayer equal.

Go to church, there are prayers, incense, singing…how different is that from the kitchen witch invoking the powers that be at her kitchen table altar with her candle and herbs? Not much different, I think.

The kinds of spells that I like are amulets, charms, and the like. I really like the idea of bottle spells, and I will be posting some interesting ones soon. I am working on creating a money drawing charm for an upcoming casino trip, and I will post the final recipe and results as they unfold as well. My idea is that if the money is there to be won, may I be the one who wins it.

The cardinal rule of spell casting, however, is to mind the law of three. Be sure your intent is true and never try to coerce or force anyone into something. I don’t agree with most love spells, and I really don’t agree with the ones that are intended to make someone fall in love with you. The thing with spells is that they tend to work. And if you bend another’s will to your own you are not acting in anyone’s best interest. And that will come back to bite you.

So practice your spells, understanding that they are meant for focused intent and affirmation. Don’t try to cast spells to change others’ perceptions, or to coerce others into doing your will; that’s just not cool, and not right. We all have free will, its a gift from the Gods. Don’t mess with it or you will face dire consequences when it comes back to you multiplied.

Simple money spell

 

Take a walnut complete with shell. Crack the shell in half and eat the nut. Place one penny from the year you were born, in the shell, making a “money seed”. Plant the “money seed” outside, near where you sleep (under your window is ideal). As you plant it, recite:

Fortuna, Lamia hear my plea

Hear now my will and my decree,

Lord of Sun and Wooded Deep

Wake this seedling from its sleep.

As a seedling grows into a tree

So shall this small coin ever be.

Starting small, yet ever growing

Providing blessings overflowing.

Never more than what is needed

Lest strife and greed be also seeded.

With harm to none may blessings come,

So may it be as I will it done.”

 

Visualize a mighty tree erupting from the earth, showering you with coins and paper money.

This spell will not make you rich, but you should find that when ever money is “needed” it becomes available, either as a gift, a loan or a windfall. “

Spell: Witches’ Ladder

 

 

 

The Witches’ Ladder  

The Witches’ Ladder is an ancient technique for working a spell, and quite simple to do.What you will need: a length of cord. Silk cord is nice, but anything will do -such as a
piece of string, ashoelace, a scarf or tie, etc…

Before you make your Witches’ Ladder you must first be clear on what it is you wish to accomplish. The Witches’ Ladder can be used for any purpose, but it is best used to bring about something which is accomplished through an on-going process -such as increasing prosperity, learning a particular skill, losing weight, etc- rather than something which is accomplished in a single event.

As always remember the Wiccan Rede “Do As You Will, But Harm None,” and start out with reasonable goals -skill is built through practice.

Begin by placing yourself in a comfortable position, then clear and release.
Now imagine a ball of golden light in your Heart Chakra.

Say to yourself “Behold, I am One with the powers of the Universe,” and imagine that ball of light growing larger and brighter, radiating out in all directions like a sun inside you. Let the ball of light grow to fill your chest, growing stronger and stronger as it does
so.

Now take your cord (and any other items you may be using, if you are doing either of the variations given for this spell) and place it before you.

Make three Tuathail, or counter-clockwise, circles above the cord with your hand. Say something to the effect of “Behold, I cleanse and purify you, sending out for you any impurities which may lie within.”

Imagine the cord surrounded by a golden light.
Imagine it shining brightly, then let the image fade.

Now make three Deosil, or clockwise, circles above
the cord and say
something like: “Behold, I bless and consecrate you to
this purpose!”
Imagine the cord surrounded by a blue-white light,
shining brightly. Again
hold the image for a moment, then let it fade.
Now take the cord in your two hands, or hold your
hands to either
side of it (palms facing it).
Imagine a ball of white light between your hands,
surrounding the cord.
Concentrate on the goal you wish to bring about
through this spell -focus as
hard as you can on the goal for several minutes.
Imagine the goal inside the
ball of light, or some image that represents the goal.
See the goal as you
want it to be when it is already accomplished and
complete -if your goal is
to gain a skill for example, imagine yourself already
proficient in it. As
you imagine this, know that this goal is already
accomplished and only needs
to be drawn into physical manifestation.
Now let the image of the goal and the ball of light
fade, and take up
your cord. Continue to focus on your goal, seeing it
already accomplished.
Still concentrating on the goal, take the cord and
tie a knot near
one end of it. Say:
“By Knot of One, the spells begun.”
Imagine yourself one step closer to having your goal.
Now tie a second knot a short distance from the
first, and say:
“By knot of Two, no power undo.”
Focus even more strongly on the goal, knowing that
each knot draws it
closer.
Tie a third knot, and say:
“By knot of Three, so mote it be.”
With each knot know that your goal comes closer to
you, imagine it
more strongly and know that it is truly yours.
Tie the fourth knot, saying:
“By knot of Four, open the door.”
Then the fifth:
“By knot of Five, it comes alive.”
The sixth:
“By knot of Six, the spell is fixed.”
The seventh:
“By knot of Seven, the boon is given.”
The eighth:
“By knot of Eight, decreed by Fate.”
And lastly tie the ninth knot:
“By knot of Nine, now it is mine!”
Now once again imagine white light all around the
knotted cord, and
place your hands above or beside the cord with palms
facing it. Again
imagine the image of your goal very strongly. Then
release all of your
focused energy and concentration directly into the
cord -do this just as you
do when you clear and release before or after any
working: imagine the
energy flowing out of you in the form of light or
water.
When all of the energy has flowed from you into the
knotted cord,
take it and seal it in a safe place. It is best to
bury it in the Earth, and
especially good if you can bury it at the foot of a
tree. This symbolizes
the physical manifestation of the goal.
In some cases you may wish to keep the Witches’
Ladder in your house,
rather than burying it out of doors. You can do this
by placing it in an
Earth pot -a pot filled with soil and kept on the
altar or a special place.
Or you could make a special box or bottle for it. In
any of these instances
you will fill the receptical with soil, then bury the
completed Witches’
ladder in it.

VARIATIONS ON THE WITCHES’ LADDER
The simple technique used to make the Witches’ Ladder
has many
variations. These can add to the efficacy of the
spell by deepening your
connection to it. This deepening is accomplished by
appealing to the Higher
Self through symbolic means or “Keys.” We discussed
Keys in LESSON I -Keys
are aesthetic or symbolic elements which help you to
make the Shift in
Consciousness and access your Higher Self, thus
facilitating magical work.
Anything which appeals to you creativity or your
sub-conscious, and puts you
in a more “magical” mood can be a Key.

VARIATION I
Make your Witches’ Ladder using not one but several
cords of
differing color. For example to do a prosprity spell
you might combine a
green cord, for fertility and abundance, with a yellow
cord, for success. Or
for psychic development you might select a dark blue
cord, for psychic
ability, a pale blue cord, for communication and
learning, and a violet cord,
for spiritual guidence.

VARIATION 2
Instead of simply tying a knot, tie something into
the knot. You
might use beads, or twigs, or feathers -to give just a
few examples. Then
tie one into each knot as you work the spell. The use
of feathers is a
particularly ancient version o fthis spell, and
examples have been found
dating back hundreds
of years.

My first experience with Moon Magic

I got a recipe for Moon Water from Pagan Magic here:   http://www.myspace.com/pagan_magic

Basically, you place springwater in a glass container and leave it open to the full moon for three days. Then, you dab some water on your forehead and nape of your neck for nine consecutive days. This should increase your psychic abilities.

So this is how I did it: I added some of my homegrown lavender to the water, and kept it outside for 3 days and nights in an indigo blue glass bowl (indigo is one of the colors that really resonates with me, and laveder is sacred to more than one diety with whom I have an accordance.) During the day I put the top on the bowl because first I didn’t want bugs in it and I wanted to leave it outside to steep in the sun as well. I thought (rightfully) that the heat and light would help infuse the water with the scent of the lavender. And I also feel that a bit of the God might help the water as well.

After the time was up, the water did smell GREAT. I put it in a clean glass jar, corked it, and began the process of annointing daily.

The second day of annointing I did a few amazing card readings that turned out to be eerily accurate. The cards were new and I hadn’t quite charged them fully yet so I was surprised that they worked so well. I am thinking this could be a result of either a personal resonance with the cards (I found them in a strange place, in amongst the adult toy section of Spencer’s gifts lol…maybe they were there to catch my eye?) ( And no, you may NOT ask why I was in that particular section of the store! haha). Or perhaps the water really was working. It could have been a combo of both.

I also managed to do an accurate remote viewing. Remote viewing is something I am moderately good at, but haven’t done in ages. Like any talent, it gets rusty. So there was another surprise/verification.

Unfortunately, I did learn a bit about moon water. First, don’t keep it sealed in a cork-topped jar because the cork gets mildewy/moldy. Second, keep it refrigerated if there are flowers in it. On the 5th day the flowers appeared to have rotted and it smelled like the lake. I had to throw it out.

Of course, then the problem is, where does one put consecrated water? I asked Goddess blessings and poured it on my garden. The next day, I had new blooms on some of the flowers.

I also dreamed during this time of making it with citronella in it instead. I have citronella that grows like a maniac in my garden, so that is my next project.

The waning moon is on us now, and its close to going dark. This is the time to make banishing and removing spells. I don’t think I am going to make moon water during this phase because I don’t know how to use it. But when it begins its wax towards full, I will put the citronella water out for the Lady’s blessing and will report back how it works.
