Bay Leaf Spell

On a whole, dried bay leaf write your need or symbol of your need in black or red ink. As you do concentrate hard on your intent then visualize the leaf being filled with white light ( or any color that corresponds to your need) then light the leaf on fire and place in heat proof container. Scatter the ashes to the wind saying “Blessed Be!” The spell is done.

Happy casting!

I have changed the visualization attached to the last line of the Mantra of Oneness. When I say “I am one with the Universe” Instead of visualizing a spiral I instead visualize a ball of brilliant light shining above me, filling me with white cosmic light from head to toe. The ball of brilliant light represents the Source or Goddess. Doing this has enhanced the mantra further and the result is a better connection to Universe (and my higher self as well).
On another subject, since my last encounter with Horse spirit, I have been calling on Horse for endurance during work. When I call on Horse, I see it melding with myself and turning me into the chocolate brown horse I changed into in my last session. The results are an immediate increase in energy, I feel strong and confidant after the calling and work has been easier to handle. I have also melded with Fox to acquire the sharp wit and cunning needed in certain situations. I have found that Fox can help when one needs eloquent speech or critical thinking. I also find that I can meld with Fox when I want to go unnoticed and need camouflage. 
My abilities have increased tremendously and I am happy with the way my studies have evolved. Spell craft has been easier and I have more vitality in living. Where just a while ago I was feeling stuck in a funk, I now feel positive and more in control of my life and path.
Blessed be,

Animal Spirit Meditation:

 For the first time ever I used a voice recording of myself and went into a guided meditation to meet a spirit animal. To be honest I was just testing the recording out to see if it was effective, but I got a wonderful journey out of it. To my surprise I was visited by a Horse spirit, I was expecting to meet Fox again but Horse immediately came to my mind and appeared before me. It was a large white steed with light bright spots on its rear end with a blonde mane and tail. I asked if Horse was my totem, it shook its head no. I asked if it was a protector and it shook its head yes. I asked what its message was and a voice came to my mind, a strong cocky voice that said it was to teach me endurance, power and to show me what love is. I then started to change into a horse. My body was covered in dark chocolate brown hair and my mane and tail were black. I then realized that there were fences around the whole area and in fact these fences separated the horse spirit and myself. Where the horse spirit was free to roam in open limitlessness I was stuck in a limited fairly large place with oddly fenced off areas. It was time to end the meditation so i changed myself back into my original form and thanked the Horse spirit. I then exited the astral realm and climbed the astral steps back into my physical body.

 Wow, I really didn’t expect to be visited by Horse spirit. Its message wasn’t very clear but the fence thing sure was. Horse was shoeing me that I somehow have limited myself by fencing off parts of myself. Perhaps it wants to teach me the power to bust down the fences or to endure the strain of life, haha. I don’t get the “show you what love is” bit but Im sure Im gonna find out. I will have to question Horse again in the near future. 
On another subject its been six days since I started using the Mantra of Oneness and already I am feeling its benefits. I have more energy and it really helps me focus when I need to. I have gone deeper in the visualizations behind the verses. Now when I visualize the elements its like I become apart of their energy. Earth is cold and solid,dense. Air is fluttery, active and moving. Fire is consuming, hot and very active. Water is soothing, cool and receptive. The whole mantra itself has proven to be a great stress reliever, leaving me calm and collected afterwards. When I connect to the Universe, I drift into a mild trance and can feel myself being bathed in cosmic energy. 
On top of that I am now doing daily rune readings to get a feel of the energy surrounding me on a daily basis. Also I’ve added the middle pillar exercise to my daily regimen. Things have been productive lately. Im happy and moving forward in my practice. Im Loving every minute of it.

Trying out an experiment with a mantra to be said during the 3 points of the day, waking, midday, and before sleep. I will do this for 28 days. Upon which a channel should then be set up based on the affirmations and visualizations in the mantra. Making it easier for me to access these energies. I call it the Mantra of Oneness, “I am one with the elements.” Then visualize the four elements, earth,air,fire,water. “I am one with myself.” Visualize the 7 major chakras and my aura. “I am one with the universe.” Visualize a spiral that is my symbol for universe. Besides that I am busy trying to put together my own Triangle of Manifestation. It will be a great project to undertake and can only work to enhance my spell craft. 
I am still putting together my Ritual B.o.S, I am rewriting some sabbat rituals and what not. Just another day being witchy haha.

Animal Spirit Meditation 11/20/13

After conducting the Qabalistic Cross and Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram, I sat in Tailors Pose and began to still my mind. After getting into a meditative state I called up the stairs that take me to my Inner Sanctum. They appeared as before as torch lit, stone castle steps. I walked down them counting from 12 to 1. When I exited the staircase I was in a large beautiful library on a mountain top, my Inner Sanctum. I willed that the Fox spirit would be there and Fox appeared to me but was covered in black smoke. I could see the Fox’s head and tail but the rest if its body was covered in the smoke. I asked Fox what it meant by camouflage in our last visit. Fox told me it meant for me to step aside from the lime light and let others shine around me. I then asked how I can better detect deception and the Fox showed me in a visualization as it spoke that I can open my heart chakra while speaking with someone and know by the bad vibes if they are lying. My visualization became really unstable and my concentration waned so I thanked Fox and walked back if the stone stairs to my physical body.
It was a short session but it was a good session. Some if my questions were answered and I learned a mystical trick about how to detect deception. I will try again to meet Fox soon. For now I will try to apply what it has taught/ told me.

"The more I know, the less I understand"
I have been so drained lately, But I’m chugging on as good as the next guy. Work is strenuous and even my magickal studies have been taken up a notch. I have yet to visit Fox again, I have so many questions since our last visit in my Inner Sanctum. Fox spirit told me its lesson was camouflage and to know when I am being deceived. Ive tried to be more low-key, I haven’t been out at all, instead I have been at home studying but being observant of my friends and home environment. I don’t know if Im doing what Fox came to teach but Im trying things out till I get to ask Fox to clarify what it means by camouflage. When I last saw Fox I asked how I would know if Im being deceived. Fox answered ” you will know it in your thoughts and in your being”. I have been trying to detect if people around me have been deceiving me. While I don’t believe that anyone is lying about anything terrible (I did notice when they embellished), it does force me to examine how the people around me speak and their mannerisms.
 Anyways I have still been putting togeter my Ritual Book of Shadows (b.o.s) and noticed I was missing some key components in my own ritual construction. Cakes and Wine, Drawing Down the Moon and others were missing from my book, so now Im working on getting them down for future use. Thats whats been up so far, just chuggin away at life. Happy though. “The journey is the destination” as the Taoists say.

Log 11/09/13

I am currently working on organizing my book of shadows (b.o.s). To do this I am making a separate book to carry General Rituals, Rites, Prayers and Sabbats/esbats as well as info on Gods and Goddesses and Animal Spirits. I will make another for spells, notes and recording experiences from spells, which will be copied from the composition books I use to keep track of my daily activities and workings. The older b.o.s that I have is to be broken down and used as a reference guide, separating the material as needed for the two newer b.o.s’. This is all easier said than done but the goal is worth the work. To have an organized reference book, a easy to access ritual book and an evolving spell book. This will deepen my experiences on my path and reinforce my faith in my abilities during times of spiritual crises, which I recently went through.
I am working through the foundation I have made and I am strengthening it so I may climb higher up my path. I am reexamining what I have already learned to get a better understanding. So far this process has been a marvelous exploit and I am enjoying the review of this information. I am learning the different levels of each occult subject, growing from beginner to intermediate levels and eventually to the advance stages of each subject. Things like advanced grounding techniques, bettering my abilities at sensing energy, and going to deeper levels in my meditations. All this and more has been keeping me focused, busy and diligent in my Wicca/occult studies.

Spirit Animal Meditation Part 3: message received

After performing the qabalistic cross ritual along with the lesser banishing ritual of the pentagram, i laid in bed and calmed my mind and body with a relaxation exercise. I then visualized a staircase, it appeared to me as a stone staircase like in a castle tower, the stair case was lit by flaming torches. I walked down the stairs counting from 12 to 1 and once i exited the staircase i was in my place of power, which normally appears to me as a gigantic library on a mountain top. In my place of power i willed to meet Fox spirit, who appeared before me. I asked the spirit what message it had for me and the spirit spoke with its mouth like a human and said its message was camouflage and to teach me when i am being deceived. I asked how i will know i am being deceived and it said i will feel it in my being and know it in my thoughts. I asked if Fox was my totem and it shook its head, no. I asked if it was a protector and it shook its head, yes. I asked when i can contact Fox and it told me i can call on it whenever i need its help. The Fox was red, black and white; it was large, standing in height with my torso, its voice was kind, its energy friendly and its demeanor was that of a wise creature. I thanked the Fox and bowed to it, then i turned to the stone staircase and walked up it counting from 1 to 12 as i did and returned to my physical body. I immediately wrote down the whole experience in my magickal journal.
This was an amazing experience, i let my subconscious go and Fox finally appeared to me in a stable visualization and actually answered my questions. Obviously doing the qabalistic cross and LBRP before the meditation helped tremendously, and now I have fox’s message to me. I know now that Fox is a protector and has come to teach me camouflage and how to detect deception. Both very useful skills and abilities. I am very happy with this experience, I learned a lot and can grow from here.

Spirit Animal Meditation Part 2: Fox Research

After meeting Fox spirit in a meditation I have been looking into the lore behind this interesting creature. According to many sources, Fox is a trickster and brings all the cunning qualities to bear as I have found out trying to work with this spirit. Fox has a symbolic link to mental responsiveness, and I am currently being challenged in my meditations by this Fox spirit. Ever since our first encounter my visualization during the meditation has been unstable as if I am being blocked from “seeing” the session with Fox. Yet I knew Fox’s presence was there and it wanted to go on a journey however I could not see clearly and only got glimpses of the Fox spirit. I realized later after talking with a friend and mentor that Fox plays tricks and was perhaps challenging me to sharpen my abilities. Also this Fox in particular has larger ears than a normal fox would have, there is a clue there and obviously my first thought is a need to listen more. Fox energy works a lot with camouflage and observing one’s environment, to step out of the limelight and become silent and unseen. This is a challenge for me, being the loud mouth attention loving Leo that I am, but I have come to understand that stepping out of the limelight also means not getting caught up in my own thoughts and worries. I need to be more aware of what is going on around me, especially with the people who are closest to me. Anyways, Fox seems to have connections with magick, dream work, the night, and guiding the souls of the dead. It is said to be a great teacher and guide, so I am honored that such a fascinating spirit has come my way to lend me some wisdom. I am excited to continue working with this spirit. 
 More to come 💖

Spirit Animal Meditation Part 1

After casting a circle I began to meditate, grounding my energy and going deep within myself. I visualized a staircase before me and walked down 12 steps counting down from 12 to 1 as I did. When I exited the staircase I was in my place of power. Waiting for me was a fox, a slinky red and black fox with a cunning smile. I asked the fox what message it had for me. The fox seemed to be tryin to speak to me but I could not understand it. The fox began to take me on a journey but my visualization began to break up as there was too much noise going on in my house from my roommates. I apologized to the fox and promised I would return. I walked to the staircase and began to climb up it counting up from 1 to 12 when I returned to my physical body I grounded my energy.
This is not the first time I have done this meditation, I first met my totem, Lion and another of my guides Cat while doing this meditation. This is the first time I came across Fox, and I believe Fox has an important message for me. I actually dont know very much about foxes nor do I know of their mystical attributes. I will do some studying on Fox and see what I can find, I am also preparing to meet Fox again, this time I will do it at what is commonly known as “dead time”, which is around 3am when the psychic frequency is low (and when my roommates are asleep lol). I will conduct the ritual in a circle again to better focus my mind. After I have made an accurate bond I will no longer use the circle but do a quick shielding before each meditation. 
If anyone has any info on working with Fox spirit please feel free to share. Pointers on keeping a stable visualization would be appreciated as well. 

Blessed Be,

Herbal Magick: Dragon's Blood

Daemonorops draco, D. propinquos 

Common name: Dragon's Blood
Folk name: Blood, Blume, Calamus Draco, Draconis Resina
Parts used:  oils, bark, resin
Planet: Mars
Element: Fire
Zodiac: Aries
Gender: Masculine 
Goddess/ God: Mars/Ares, Hermod
Medicinal uses: People use Dragon's Blood for diarrhea and other digestive tract problems. Sometimes used on the skin as a drying agent (astringent). Renowned for its wound healing abilities and is commonly applied as a liquid bandage. Helps the healing of open sores or wounds while protecting the area from infection. Also used as a treatment for insect bites and stings, relieves itching, irritation and alleviates the agonizing pain of fire ant bites. 
Magickal Effects: Love, Protection, Exorcism, Potency, Empowerment
Magickal uses: The resin has long been used as an empowerment, just a pinch can be added to spells and charms to increase the power of the desired intent. A very strong protectant, the herb acts like a 'fire-wall' from negative influences and is especially powerful against hexes and curses. The burning of dragon's blood incense or even carrying it as a charm or sprinkling it around the house, will drive away all negative energy.  The incense is also burned to bring back errant lovers, the incense is burned in front of an open window and the image of the missing love is focused upon until the incense burns out. Added to love spells it brings quite a 'kick', very powerful and should be used with caution. Dragon's blood placed under the pillow or even better, under the mattress, will cure impotency.

Magickal Training

It is important, especially for the beginner, to develop a daily routine that employs your latest lessons in the occult. Below are some exercises and routines I employ for my magickal training. This is just a guideline set and is not the end all beat all of the occult regimen, feel free to pick and choose or employ all of them if you so desire. This regimen is a mixture of Wicca/witchcraft and Ceremonial magick:

  • Stretching/ exercise- Yoga is especially appropriate for this. Such actions are known as 'polishing the temple' and should be apart of your daily practice.
  • Grounding/shielding/centering- Be sure you make a regular practice of these. There are techniques given on this blog for grounding and shielding [here], and there is a centering technique known as the Qabalistic Cross [here]
  •  The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram (LBRP)- One of the most important rituals to perform on a daily basis. The LBRP will increase the strength of your aura and clear the area you perform it in from all negativity. It raises the energies of your magickal being.
  • The Middle Pillar- The middle pillar should be practiced after the LBRP and will allow you to tap into the universal power, eventually with practice this power can be used in healing and charging talismans.
  • Chakra Balancing- There are many techniques for balancing the chakras. Chakras are energy centers within the body that must be charged and strengthen through meditation. You should learn to open and close chakras, start with the so called Seven Major Chakras that is the Root, the Sacral chakra, the Solar chakra, the Heart, the Throat chakra, the Third Eye, and the Crown.
  • Elemental Assimilation- Working in harmony with the elements will greatly increase your magickal ability and understanding. There are four elements that you assimilate with: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. You can learn more about this process [here]. Each element should first be approached one by one. One element for one week, at the end of that week, practice a spell that involves the quality of that element. After this is achieved move onto the next element and so on. Once all four elements have been assimilated, reduce the practice to once a month or whenever you deem it necessary.
  • Earthing- Earthing is exactly what it sounds like, spending time to walk, sit or lie down on an area of Earth. Parks, backyards, hiking trails and etc, are all good ways of Earthing. I practice Earthing every morning in my backyard, I walk around my grass barefoot drinking in the energies of the earth from my feet and releasing them through my breath, this is known as "breathing through your feet". This may seem like a simple act but its importance can only be understood after daily practice. 
  • Simple Meditation- Sometimes we get caught up in both the magickal and mundane that we forget to simply relax. Meditation is a powerful tool for the occult practitioner, finding our center even in the most trying environments (city bus, crowded park, noisy housemates) is beneficial to all who practice magick. Simply sit down, breathe for three counts then count backwards from 12 to 1, breathing with each count, and once you reach 1 you will be in a relaxed state. A trick for those just beginning, if your mind wanders simply pull it back and breath, if noises in your area distract you, listen to them and realize you are at one with them then breathe. The breath is a tool, use it to calm yourself and ease your tension. I have been told to meditate for at least 30min a day. Thats a little extreme for beginners, I'd say make an attainable goal and then work to increase it. Start with 3min, then 5min and so and so forth. 
I feel this is enough for the budding practitioner to start with. There are many great techniques here for increasing your magickal ability and for bettering your life in general. Discipline is the first virtue to attain on the path of magick. Be strong and keep on, make sure to record your experiences in a journal that is used for your magick and meditation. Record in it the moon phase, date and time as well as the weather and your emotional state at the time. You will see a pattern emerge after some time of practicing. Use this as your ultimate tool, the Magickal Journal. It will tell you more about yourself than you can realize. "Know Thyself" is a law of magick.

The Lesser Banishing Ritual of the Pentagram

  This is a great banishing tool as well as an exercise that should be performed on a daily basis to strengthen the aura and raise the energy of your magickal being. This is an earth banishing ritual and is mostly employed for clearing negative energy of a given space, as well as to clear up your aura. Find a space in which you will not be disturbed, ground your energy then center yourself with the Qabalistic Cross.

Next facing East draw a star, visualizing it as blue light. Once finished make the Sign of the Enterer, also known as the Sign of Horus (You can check out these stances [here] ) make sure you thrust your hands through the star you have just drawn, while doing so breath out and though your entire exhalation, vibrate this God name: Yud-Heh-Vahv-Heh

Pull back to regular standing position and using your right hand trace a line of white light from the center of the star to the South, facing South draw another with the same blue light as the last. Make the Sign of the Enterer again, thrusting your hand through the center of the star you have just drawn and using your entire exhalation to vibrate this God name:

Pull back and trace from the Southern star to the West. Draw a star with blue light and make the Sign of the Enterer while vibrating this God name: Eh-Heh-Eh

Pull back and trace a line of white light to the North, draw a star with blue light. Make the Sign of the Enterer while vibrating this God Name: Ag-Lah

Pull back and trace the white line back to the Eastern Star, now stand with feet together and arms apart like a cross. Visualize an angel with yellow robes, holding a caduceus standing in front of you as you say these words: Before me, (vibrate the name) Raphael

Visualize behind you and angel in blue robes holding a chalice, say: Behind me, (vibrate) Gabriel.

Visualize to your right an angel in red robes holding a flaming sword, say: To my right, (vibrate) Michael.

Visualize to your left an angel with green robes, holding a pentacle, say: To my left, (vibrate) Uriel.

Stand arms and feet apart, like a star and say: For about me flames the pentagram! then visualize a star of david (also called the mystic star) within the middle of your chest shining a golden light and say: And within me shines the six rayed star!"

End with Qabalistic Cross.

Lughnasadh Sabbat Ritual

 --Lammas or Lughnasadh (LOO-na-sahd) is the First Harvest. The sun and grain god represented by the Celtic god Lugh is sacrificed so that His life force may sustain the Earth and us, His children.  This is a funeral celebration, thanking Lugh for his sacrifice so that we may live and be prepared for the coming winter. Traditionally Lughnasahd is celebrated through the baking of the bread from the first harvest of grain and the blessing of the first harvested fruits. Also playing competitive sport games, especially those that display strength and skill, are traditionally held at this time including the Olympics, the Panatheniac Games, the Highland Games, and modern football season.

“The traditional five games (Pentathlon) are running  (50 or 100 yard speed race), long jumping (from running start in sand pit, the longest jump wins), wrestling (gripping only  above the waist and whomever can get the others shoulder to touch the ground first wins), boulder heaving (a bowling ball will do in our modern exploits of this sport, the farthest landing wins), and taber tossing (a long pole, like a flag pole is thrown at a hay bale target, the one closest to the target wins.)” ---
‘Grimoire for the Apprentice Wizard’ by Oberon Zell-Ravenheart

For the passing of summer we remember the good times and the bounty of the Earth by eating a special meal. The following ritual is designed to utilize food as an offering and a way of ingesting transformation into our lives.

The Feast for Lugh
 (Based on an article by Sandra Kynes at )
·      Baked bread, wine, chalice, athame, grapes, offering bowl, have the food for the feast ready but not in the circle
·      Also a list of three wishes to be made during the ritual

·      Cast a 'Circle of Art'
·      Call the Watchtowers
·      “Lord Lugh, Lord of the Harvest, the bounty of your seed ripens in the fields and orchards, Be with us during this rite!”
·      “Lady Gaia, Mother of all, your great swollen belly provides abundance. Nourish us, protect us. Be with us during this rite!”
·      Fill chalice with wine, bless and consecrate the wine by first visualizing it being filled with yellow light and say, “I exorcise you of all impurities that may lie within.” Then visualize the wine being filled with bright blue light and say, “And I do bless you and consecrate you to this working.”
·      Each person take a bit of bread and a sip of wine, saying before hand, “I share the bounty of the Lord. I share the bounty of the Lady.”
·      “Lets us think on what began earlier this year, what has grown and is ready to come to fruition into our lives” Contemplate this, then take 2 grapes each, holding them in your power hand (the hand you write with) and make a wish utilizing visualization and focused will. Eat one and place the other in the offering bowl saying as you do, “So mote it be”
·      Do the same with a bit of bread, after eating one piece, place the other piece in the offering bowl, as you do say, “So mote it be.”
·      Then take a sip of wine while making your wish then pour a bit into the bowl saying, “So mote it be!”
·      “May our wishes and intentions be carried above and below! May the blessings be!”
·      Bid farewell to Lugh and Gaia, then farewell to the Watchtowers. Release the circle then bring out the food!
·      Before eating say this last final prayer: “Thanks be to Lugh, God of the grain, God of the sun. Your sacrifice for our sustenance and life shall be honored! Hail be to Lugh for our fruit and grain, Hail be to the Goddess who shall see to His rites and passage. In both your honor, Lugh and Great Goddess, do we partake in this holy feast. So mote it be!”*
     Now eat and enjoy each others company! A blessed Lughnasadh to all, may your first harvest be bountiful!  

NOTE: Once the feast is over you may burry the offerings and clean the bowl.


Lugh, Celtic Sun God of the Grain.

The Witch’s Pyramid

The power used in magick and witchcraft is rooted in the knowledge of four simple rules known as the witch’s pyramid. These are the four corner stones of magick, and though they may not be completely magickal in and of themselves, their joint application is. The ability to utilize the four magick rules will result in the ability of what is known as ‘witch power’. 

The four rules of magick are: Imagination, Willpower, Faith and Silence.

Imagination is the ability to summon within your mind an idea or desire. The imagination used in the witch’s pyramid should be focused and complete.

Willpower is the drive for the idea and desire summoned with imagination. This is the magickal will, which should be potent and unwavering.

A firm Faith in ones abilities is also necessary for the application of the magickal will and vivid imagination. Without this then there would be no belief in the powers of the witch. You must have strong faith in your spells, faith in your own true power.

Silence is a necessary tool for the budding practitioner of the occult arts. Though we are in a more ‘enlightened’ time period in which there is more freedom, it would do you well to practice in the art of secrecy. Tell no one of your workings that is not understanding to your cause. For their cynical responses can be damaging to the faith that you have built and their negative energies can affect the course of a spell. Also a more mundane reasoning to keeping silent about your workings is the very real damage of fear. Fear from neighbors who upon learning of your extra-curriculum activities will proceed to call the authorities every night you are casting a spell. Fear from coworkers who slander your good name to elevate themselves and diminish your time at a job. Fear from fanatics who will picket your house or harass you with their benedictions and prayers of enslavement.

The culmination of the four rules or pyramid powers will result in the basic and fundamental achievement of witch power. Stay true to the witch’s pyramid and magick will most certainly be a foot.

Lionheart’s Protection Potion

This potion is best prepared during the waning moon as close to the new moon as possible. Also steel or iron pots are good for creating protection potions (though for any other potion I highly recommend glass or earthenware pots).

·      Steel or Iron pot
·      Mortar and Pestle
·      Bowl or mixing vessel
·      Measuring Cup
·      Measuring Spoons (table spoon and teaspoon needed)
·      Cheesecloth
·      Jar or Bottle that can hold at least 1 ½ cup of water with out over flowing

·      1 ½ cups Water
·       1 tablespoon Sea Salt
·      2 teaspoons Ground Sage
·      2 teaspoons St. John’s Wort
·      1 teaspoon Dragons Blood (ground)
·      1 teaspoon Juniper

 In a bowl or vessel start mixing the herbs together, enchanting each ingredient with red protective energy. Do this by holding the herb in your power hand (the hand you write with) and visualize yourself being filled with red light, slowly start tensing your muscles while chanting “Protection, Protection, Protection…”, I find it helps to also visualize a shield while building the energy, then focus the red light into your power hand and release your muscles slowly visualizing the energy transferring into the herb. Once the ingredient is enchanted add it to the bowl or vessel. Do this for each herb. The Dragons Blood can be enchanted while you crush it in your mortar and pestle, as you grind the Dragons Blood chant and visualize red light being pushed into the powder. Once you have enchanted and added each ingredient to the bowl begin mixing with your power hand while focusing on your intent. Now place your hands over the mixture and again enchant it with red protective energy.
  Next bring 1 ½ cup of water to boil, add the tablespoon of sea salt and mix well. Once the water is boiling turn heat down slightly and mix in your herb mixture. Let steep while mixing occasionally, here I would like to note that you should still be focusing on your intent. Once the herbs are blended place hands over the mixture (careful not to burn yourself) and enchant one last time with red protective energy. Turn off the heat and let cool. Once the mixture has cooled use the cheesecloth to strain the potion into your jar or bottle. Label the potion and date it.

Using your potion: DO NOT DRINK! This potion is for anointing your wrists and third eye while visualizing a red shield surrounding you, or you can use it to anoint candles for protection spells or even jewelry like necklaces to give them a protective power. The potion should last a long while as long as you keep it in a dark place away from direct sunlight. Record your performance and results in a journal specifically used for magick, dreams and meditations.

Beatus Esse,
