Banishing Grief Spell
This spell is said to help one let go of painful feelings of grief. It is for those times in life when it seems impossible to feel joy again, such as after losing someone close to you.
- A smoky quartz gemstone
- Bowl of water
- Three tablespoons of sea salt
Begin by holding the stone in your power hand. See your grief in your mind’s eye. Visualize the grief moving from within yourself and through your hand to the stone. As you do this, say:
Fill yourself with my grief,
so that I may feel joy again,
So be it, blessed be!
Stirring counterclockwise, mix the sea salt into the bowl of water, then add the smoky quartz stone. Swish the stone around three times in a counterclockwise motion. Leave the stone in the water for a few minutes, then take the stone outside and safely throw it as far as you can away from yourself.
Calming Chant – Calming Spell
Chant this simple rhyme whenever you feel worried or scared.
I am peaceful, I am strong
Though dark may seem so long.
For day must follow every night,
Everything is alright.
I am always safe from harm,
The Goddess holds me in her arms.
Get Rid of Anger Spell
You Will Need:
This spell needs to be done alongside flowing water – in a private corner surrounded by bushes at the side of a stream. You will also need a black stone
Create your circle. Cup a black stone in your hands and raise it to your forehead, concentrate and send all your anger into the stone. Do this for as long as you can until you can do it no longer, then hurl the stone with all your might into the water and say:
“With this stone
Anger be gone
Water bind it
No-one find it!”
Place your palms upon the earth for a few moments to ground the power and allow your circle to fade. Now go home and take care of yourself for you may feel depleted for a while, but you will be better soon. Alternatively, you may feel great straight away.
Spell to Know the Child Within
Cast a Circle. Sit facing south and light a green or blue candle. Have a doll or stuffed animal. Take it in your hands and sprinkle it with salt water.
“I name you _________________.”
(Use your own childhood name or nickname.)
Hold it in your arms, croon to it, rock it, and talk to it. Tell it everything you would have liked to hear as a child. Let it talk to you and tell you how it feels and what it wants. Let your voice change. Play.
Raise energy and visualize that you are pouring it into the doll, who is your own inner self. Create an image of your own child self as you would have liked it to be, and project it into your doll. Continue until the doll is glowing with white light and love.
Kiss the doll. Wrap it in white cloth and lay it to rest on your altar. Bind the spell. Earth the power. Open the Circle. Repeat as often as you need or want to.
Sit comfortably and use your projective hand (usually right if your right handed or vice versa) to send out negative energies and your receptive hand to bring in positive energies. After a few minutes you will be much more relaxed and calm, and the good thing is you can do it any time.
To get rid of Stress
“Bide the Wiccan law of three,
If you don’t, then Cursed you’ll be,
Spirits of my Ancestors come,
Give me your protection, Some,
Interfere in my life,
And Keep me free from Stress and Strife
So mote it be”
Spell to Get Rid of Jealousy
Jealousy stems from fear and overwhelming belief in lack or scarcity. We live on a fertile planet. We have signs of abundance everywhere – in the trees, the ocean, the scurrying animals. This world teams with life and light. Jealousy comes from putting your attention on the shadow, focusing on feelings of smallness or unworthiness or control. Love is illimitable, it naturally flows easily to every corner of the world and yet with shadow, secrets and darkness, love can be twisted into possession and domination.
The Ancient Ones believed that every deity (a deity is a face or aspect of the Creative Source) had both light and dark qualities, just as the earth plane consists of dark and light. Note I’m not saying good and evil, but dark and light. There was no judgment, just an observation of the different sides to the coin. The Ancient Ones didn’t have TV or computers – they had the skies and each other and so they became experts at examining human behavior and finding corresponding connections in the natural cycles of the seasons, planetary movement and the constellations. Their deities or Gods and Goddesses took on human qualities, including both dark and light sides, so that the people could better relate to Divine Source. Even Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, has a darker side that holds the space and creates the energy to become obsessed with love, manipulating and forming it to meet our desires, despite whether or not it’s a good match or the right time for us.
It’s like if you’ve ever danced around a May Pole or gone square dancing. You have one partner at a time. You accept this partner and this moment in its perfection, then you let go. But when you can’t let go… befriending Dark Aphrodite helps us tap into the smallness and darkness and secrets of our unworthiness, desire for control or distrust of love and allows it to transform back to love in light with our attention. When you sit quietly with your need to control, you will activate a feeling of being heard, with the result being that you receive the attention that you needed and the jealousy can begin to fade and dissolve. In your stillness, you will realize that all control is an illusion. Life is always changing; nothing stays the same or can be manipulated into constant stagnation or inactivity. Jealousy is an attempt to hold something against you so that it loses its ability to be truly alive. Love needs to move and be free, not be constrained. And so comes the time to trust that life is moving you towards love, whether it’s the thing or person you desire or something even better.
Find an image of Aphrodite and place it on a red cloth on your altar. Put a shell in front of Aphrodite. Light a candle and say,
I welcome Aphrodite, Goddess of Love and Beauty
Sea-drenched, you were foam-born of the abundant mighty sea,
Ancient Goddess of Dark and Light.
Be With me now.
By my will, so mote it be.
Place the candle on her right side, so that a shadow falls across the Goddess about halfway. Cut a pomegranate in half. As you squeeze the juice of the pomegranate into the shell, say
Please accept my offering of pomegranate, a precious fruit
So that I may learn the difference of love, in flower or root
A reason, a season, a lifetime are the stages of love
May I accept all relations as gifts from above.
And not bind myself to any one person or thing
I accept the offers of love and beauty that you bring
Knowing that true love is the dance of two open spaces
I open my heart to receive love in all places
Place the squeezed pomegranate on Aphrodite’s left side to represent all the love that you have received. Place the other side of the pomegranate on her right side to represent all the love that is yet to come to you and the abundance with which you can share your love with the world. Sit with your feelings of jealousy or smallness. Breathe through it. Repeat the phrase above as often as you need to until you notice that the light begins to ease darkness.
