WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
1 EACH – Yellow, Red, Blue, Green, White Candles – any size candle is fine – these will be used to represent the elements including Aether/Spirit
1 – 12 Inch White Candle or color you want to represent yourself
1 Candle Holder for each elemental candle

Candle Holder for Personal Candle – this should be a special one that means something to you – many witches leave their candle in it until it burns completely down, take out the stub and bury it. They also never use this particular candle holder for any candle but their personal one.
Lighter or matches

Atheme or Cleansed/Ceremonial Knife – to inscribe your magical working name (if you have not chosen one inscribe your first name only) into your personal candle. You can use an alphabet you want to be it the regular one, runes of any kind or even a different language such as Greek.

Open table or desktop to set your elemental candles out in the shape of a small Instagram surrounding what will be your personal candle but can still see your computer monitor.

2-minute meditation to start at 7:15 PM CT to center yourself for the ritual.

EVERYONE– Before I open the circle I ask each of you to type in the words “I enter this circle in perfect love and perfect trust in the Universal energies with us tonight.”

LADY BELTANE – I call upon Posiden ruler of the Oceans, I call upon Gaia mother of us all, I call upon Zeus the ruler of the sky, I call upon Ra the ruler of Sun, I call upon Aether, I call upon Arma and Luna God and Goddess of the Moon and  to walk this circle with me three times three with Air, Fire, Water, Earth and Spirit to protect all of us inside from any negativity that might try to invade our space. We now step into a place that is all places and into a time that is the past, present, and future. We humbly come before you Pan a God and  Lord of Nature, we invite you into our circle of light and love. We humbly come before you, Hecate Goddess and Guardian of Witches everywhere, we invite you into our circle of light and love.

1-2 minute quite time to wait while the power grows in our circle

(Take your candle into your non-power hand. Hold it tight enough that the Athame or knife will not cause it to turn as you engrave your name into it.)

EVERYONE – (As you engrave your name same the following spell)

Name of your personal patron God and matron Goddess

I bring forth this candle as a representation of myself and my magickal workings.

I ask that you energize it with your energies as I am energizing it with mine.

Know when I light this candle that where ever its light may hit is a sacred space

and as such, I am protected by you.

As I will it. So mote it be.

(Now each time you light your personal candle you will know the energies of the deities you called upon tonight to help energize and empower it will automatically come to you. This will happen even if you call on other Gods and/or Goddesses to assist you with something in a circle or are meditating)

EVERYONE TYPE IN – Blessed be when you are done with your candle.

Decaf Wake Up Spell

I am a person that cannot drink caffeinated coffee, soft drinks or tea because they trigger migraines. As I drank regular beverages for years trying to wake up drinking decaf coffee didn’t really do it for me. Hence being a witch I put a spell on the decaf to wake me up like regular but without all the side effects like shaking from too much caffeine or not being able to fall asleep at a decent hour.

Items Needed:

Decaf coffee – however much you want to make at a time

Wooden Spoon

Stirring three times clockwise each time the spoon goes around say “I stir you to awaken me.”

Stirring three times counter-clockwise each time the spoon goes around say, “I no longer feel tired.”

At the end say, “As I will it, so mote it be.” Or however you end your spells.

A Simple Ritual to Help Take Care of the Most Important Person in Your World…

Yes I am talking about Yourself

This can be a time to just relax or meditate or even talk with your Spirit Guides. This ritual bath can be done in any Moon phase and any day of the week. If you use the water, salt, incenses and candles you will have all the elements included in your ritual also.

WHAT YOU NEED:

1 Tablespoon of Salt

Your favorite quite music – this is a time for heavy metal or any loud type of music. You want the music to be soothing.

Incense – ONLY if they compliment whatever scent you are using in you bath.

How you take Your Favorite Bath  –  It can be a special type of bubble bath, a favorite scented bar of soap, a favorite fragrance of essential oil

, some flower petal floating in/on the water, or whatever makes it a relaxing and special time just for you

1 White Candle to bring in positive energy

1 Black Candle to draw out negative energy (this candle you will break in half and throw away to get rid of the negative energy it has sievened off of you. Put it in a ziplock type bag before placing it in the trash to keep the negativity contained)

A Warm Fluffy Towel to dry off with

Your most COMFY jammies or nightgown

After getting undressed and before entering your bath repeat this spell three times ending it however, you usually end your spells or with the words, “So mote it be.”

SPELL:

(Stand in the tub slowly lowering yourself into the water as you recite the spell)

By Earth and Water, I cleanse myself of all negativity and everyday things,

 

My mind and body to relax and open itself up to metaphysical things.

I wash away the negativity I have been put through or brought upon myself this past week (or day),

This bath is to nurture myself to be able to face what is coming this week (or the day I will awaken to next).

(If you will be meditating add the following) I open myself up completely to any messages the Universe has for me.

(If you will be trying to talk to your Spirit Guides add the following) I open myself up completely to the guidance my Spirit Guides have for me.

After you are through with the spell sit back, relax and enjoy! If you are meditating try to not fall asleep.

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Florida Water

Shaheen Miro

Florida Water is a traditional tool for spiritual cleansing, blessing and protection. It began as common toilette water in the 19th century, and grew in popularity by spiritual workers of all verities. The mixture is a combination of water, alcohol and essential oils. It has a strong citrus scent, with floral undertones and a slight earthy smell.

The fragrant botanicals are the source of the water’s power. They attract good fortune, and benevolent spirits to whomever, or wherever the water is used. Florida Water essentially raises the vibration of whatever it comes into contact with making it unsuitable for negativity and harm to thrive, and linger.

Florida Water can be used as a base for any energetic and magical application. It can be used for baths, floor washes, and for anointing. It is a powerful tool for spiritually cleansing your home after a difficult time, or when dealing with…
