BALANCING YOUR CHAKRAS

Many of us have chakra imbalances of low production, negative, or not working at all. In life, we all deal with life events in areas of personal or exterior influences, and many of us do not know how to begin to bring about balance for we all strive for wellbeing. Here is some information to help you work on them. Believe me when you’re working towards inner balance your whole life is better in mind, body, and spirit.

 

Warning Signs Your Chakras Are Out of Balance

There are 7 main energy centers in the body, known as chakras. Each chakra is located throughout our body so that it correlates to specific body ailment and physical dysfunctions; each energy center also houses our mental and emotional strengths. When we have a physical issue, it creates weaknesses in our emotional behavior. When we release the stale energy from the body, it can undo any tightness, stiffness, or malfunction of that area.

The clearing of the energy can also balance our emotional state of mind. The Chakra Mind-Body Balance is a two-way street: if there are certain fears and emotions we are holding on to, we experience physical restrictions, too.

If you have achiness or stiffness, or certain reoccurring emotions and fears, read along and you may find out which chakra is affected or blocked.

1st or Root Chakra

Sits at the base of your spine, at your tailbone.

Physical imbalances in the root chakra include problems in the legs, feet, rectum, tailbone, immune system, male reproductive parts and prostate gland. Those with imbalances here are also likely to experience issues of degenerative arthritis, knee pain, sciatica, eating disorders, and constipation.

Emotional imbalances include feelings affecting our basic survival needs: money, shelter and food; ability to provide for life’s necessities.

When this chakra is balance, you feel supported, a sense of connection and safety to the physical world, and grounded.

The lesson of this chakra is self-preservation; we have a right to be here.

2nd or Sacral Chakra

Located two inches below your navel.

Physical imbalances include sexual and reproductive issues, urinary problems, kidney dysfunctions, hip, pelvic and low back pain.

Emotional imbalances include our commitment to relationships. Our ability to express our emotions. Our ability to have fun, play based on desires, creativity, pleasure, sexuality. Fears of impotence, betrayal, addictions.

When this chakra is balanced, we have an ability to take risks, we are creative, we are committed. We are passionate, sexual and outgoing.

The lesson of this chakra is to honor others.

3rd or Solar Plexus Chakra

Located three inches above your navel.

Physical imbalances include digestive problems, liver dysfunction, chronic fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, stomach ulcers, pancreas and gallbladder issues, colon diseases.

Emotional imbalances include issues of personal power and self-esteem, our inner critic comes out. Fears of rejection, criticism, physical appearances.

When this chakra is balanced, we feel self-respect and self-compassion. We feel in control, assertive, confident.

The lesson of this chakra is self-acceptance.

4th or Heart Chakra

Located at the heart.

Physical imbalances include asthma, heart disease, lung disease, issues with breasts, lymphatic systems, upper back and shoulder problems, arm and wrist pain.

Emotional imbalances include issues of the heart; over-loving to the point of suffocation, jealousy, abandonment, anger, bitterness. Fear of loneliness.

When this chakra is balanced we feel joy, gratitude, love and compassion, forgiveness flows freely, trust is gained.

The lesson of this chakra is I Love.

5th or Throat Chakra

Located at the throat.

Physical imbalances include thyroid issues, sore throats, laryngitis, TMJ, ear infections, ulcers, any facial problems (chin, cheek, lips, tongue problems) neck and shoulder pain.

Emotional imbalances include issues of self-expression through communication, both spoken or written. Fear of no power or choice. No willpower or being out of control.

When this chakra is balanced, we have free flowing of words, expression, communication. We are honest and truthful yet firm. We are good listeners.

The lesson of this chakra is to speak up and let your voice be heard.

6th or Third Eye Chakra

Located in the middle of the eyebrows, in the center of the forehead.

Physical imbalances include headaches, blurred vision, sinus issues, eyestrain, seizures, hearing loss, hormone function.

Emotional imbalances include issues with moodiness, volatility, and self-reflection; An inability to look at ones own fears, and to learn from others. Day-dream often and live in a world with exaggerated imagination.

When this chakra is balanced we feel clear, focused, and can determine between truth and illusion. We are open to receiving wisdom and insight.

The lesson of this chakra is to see the big picture.

7th or Crown Chakra

Located at the top of the head.

Physical imbalance includes depression, inability to learn, sensitivity to light, sound, environment.

Emotional imbalances include issues with self-knowledge and greater power. Imbalances arise from rigid thoughts on religion and spirituality, constant confusion, carry prejudices, “analysis paralysis.” Fear of alienation.

When this chakra is balanced, we live in the present moment. We have an unshakeable trust in our inner guidance.

The lesson of this chakra is live mindfully.

After reading this, you (like me) may feel that more than one chakra is imbalanced or blocked. This is because when one is blocked, the other chakras begin to compensate and either become overactive or under-active.

The best way to start balancing them is to start at the root chakra and work your way up to the crown chakra. Start here for 6 Simple Ways to Balance Your Root Chakra.

Use chakra healing meditations to help you- click here for more information and links
Close your eyes and visualise each colour individually over the associated areas. start with the root chakra, and go through all the colours until you reach the crown chakra. You can visualise yourself in a ball of white light to finally balance your chakras.
Move your body when you can- yoga is fantastic for aligning the chakras, especially kundalini yoga
book yourself in for a massage, Reiki, Energetic Healing or AcuEnergetics session

So, there we have it my pagan friends- I really, really hope this helps you. Please let me know if you have any questions- it might all seem a bit complicated, but once you become aware of the chakras and how they work, you’ll be able to heal them easily and intuitively.

Love and healing,

Time to Come Out of the Broom Closet


Many of us very crafted witches that are still are practicing in secrecy due to the know knowledge of the implications we know we will face, and feel very imprisoned by the fact not being able to express ourselves freely.
 

At some point, you may have decided that you're comfortable enough in your spiritual path that you're ready to "come out of the broom closet." Chances are it's not a decision you've made lightly, because it's a pretty big step. After all, once you've "come out", you don't get to take it back if people don't like it. Certainly, we all want to be accepted by those we love and care about, but realistically we know there's a chance they might be upset, angry, or concerned once they find out we're  a Pagan Witch.

First, you'll need to decide what you hope to gain by coming out. Do you just want to shock the neighbors and grandparents into thinking you're Spooky and Mysterious? On the other hand, maybe you feel like you're being less than honest with people in your life by not revealing your true beliefs. Or perhaps you're just tired of tiptoeing around and hiding who you are, and you're ready to be open about your path.

Regardless, make sure that the benefits outweigh the possible repercussions.

Coming out to Family

You're the one who knows your family best, so you may be able to gauge how they're going to react. Is there a chance you could cause a lot of family discord by coming out? Will your spouse threaten to divorce you? Could you get kicked out of the house? Will each family dinner become an opportunity for siblings to throw Chick Tracts at you and scream that you're a sinner? Is it possible your kids might get picked on at school if word gets out that you're Pagan? These are possible results of coming out of the broom closet. Consider them carefully, and weigh it against your reasons for coming out in the first place.

If you've decided that coming out is the right choice for you, the obvious place to start is at home, where there are people who love you and care about you. The reason for this is twofold -- one, families tend to be more accepting than strangers, and two, how would you like it if mom and dad or your wife found out from someone other than you that you're pagan witch?

First, let them know there's something really important you need to discuss with them. Try to plan a time when there are no distractions -- and do plan ahead, so no one feels like you're trying to corner them or surprise them. Don't bring up the subject when you have half a dozen pagan friends sitting on your porch -- your family members will feel ambushed, and that's not a good way to start the conversation.

Before you actually have the Big Conversation, think about what you're going to say. As silly as this sounds, know what you believe. After all, if your family members ask you questions, you better be able to answer them if you want to be taken seriously. Make sure you've done your homework beforehand. They may want to know what you believe about God, reincarnation, spell work, or even if you hate Christianity now that you're Pagan. Have an honest answer ready.

When you do sit down to finally have the Talk, focus on remaining calm. Depending on how conservative or religious your family members are, there's a possibility they might fly off the handle. They're entitled to - after all, you've just told them something they weren't expecting, and so the natural reaction to such a situation can be shock and anger for some people. No matter how much they yell, keep yourself from responding in kind. Keep your voice down -- this will do two things. First, it will show them that you are mature, and secondly, it will force them to stop yelling in order to hear what you have to say.

Make sure you focus on what your belief system is, rather than what it isn't. If you start the conversation with, "Now, it's not devil worship…" then all anyone will hear is the "devil" part, and they'll start worrying. You may even want to recommend a book for your parents to read so they can understand Paganism a little better. One book aimed specifically for Christian parents of teens is When Someone You Love is Pagan. It does include a few sweeping generalizations, but on the whole it provides a useful, positive Q&A format for people who are concerned about your new spiritual path. You might even want to print out this article and have it handy for them.

The bottom line is that your family needs to see you're still the same happy and well-adjusted person you were yesterday. Show by the way you behave and conduct yourself that you're still a good person, despite the fact that you may have a different spiritual path than everyone else in the house.

Remember that we do not oppose others beliefs and they should not oppose ours. Make sure you have done your research and have plenty of material to back up all the possible questions that will come.

Most of all do not be "backed up into that closet due to opposition. We pagan witches have been dealing with adversity for centuries.

Blessed be the Witches.

New Moon Ritual for Beginners

NEW MOON FOR BEGINNERS

 

 

Tonight’s New Moon is a time to embrace change and uncover truth. Here are some truths about the New Moon you may not know.

New Moon Lore:
When a person sees the new moon for the first time, they are to bow to it three times in honor of the ancient Egyptian trinity; Osiris, Isis, and Horus (father, mother, and son).

Good Luck:
- The new moon is an auspicious time for planting, courtship, starting a new business, or beginning a trip.
- In order to promote faster growth, a new moon is the best time to cut your hair and fingernails.
- According to an old English tradition, when a new wife sees the new moon for the first time after her wedding, she should quickly turn down her bed to ensure a happy marriage.
- At first sight of the new moon, flip a silver coin and make a wish.
- Seeing a new moon on a Monday will bring you good luck.
- When you see a new moon over your right shoulder, it ensures good times ahead.
- If you see the new moon for the first time and are holding something in both of your hands, you will never want for anything.
- A wish made while looking at new moon will come true within a year.

Bad Luck:
- It is unlucky to view the first new moon through glass objects or trees; it is also unlucky to point directly at the new moon.
- It is bad luck to dig a grave or bury a body during a new moon.

Weather:
- If a new moon occurs on a Monday, then the weather will be clear.
- If a new moon occurs on a Saturday, then there will be twenty days of wind and rain.
- If a new moon occurs on a Sunday, there will be a flood before the month’s end.
- The strongest storms and hurricanes are likely to be 1-3 days after a new moon and 3-5 days after a full moon. 

New Moon Magic:

When the Moon is new, the Sun and Moon are aligned in the same sign, and a powerful energy portal is opened. New Moons are a great time to set intentions for things you’d like to create, develop, cultivate, make manifest. There are many ways to initiate this communion with the Universe from lighting a candle to elaborate rituals. What matters is that you’re committing yourself to your vision, and open to receiving guidance, healing, support from Spirit.

Why Follow the Moon?

When you tune into the Moon’s phases, it’s reassuring to know that there are many chances during the year to tap into lunar energy. Like the tides, the Moon ebbs and flows, a rhythm that women understand intimately. New Moons are a blank page on which to speak your dreams out loud, and Full Moons are for taking action and celebrating the fruit of your efforts.

In the chaotic and temporal world, looking to something larger that is also part of yourself can fill you with awe and make you feel connected. For whatever path you’re on, opening to working with planetary energies links you to the power of the divine.

Preparing for the New Moon:

It’s a good idea to spend some time reflecting in the days leading up to the new Moon. Knowing exactly what you want to draw into your life is not always easy. Part of preparing for the new Moon is making sure you are clear about your intentions. Sometimes it’s a quality you’d like to cultivate like forgiveness, courage — other times it’s a more specific request like a promotion at work or new place to live.

What is a new Moon Ritual?

This depends on your personal tastes, the pace of your life and the time you have to devote to it. Some simply light a candle, while others gather objects and pictures for their altar. Lately, I’ve been writing my intentions on a 7-day candle and leaving it in a prominent (and safe) place. With a candle, you can return to it and relight it while meditating on your intentions.

Ritual helps focus your entire being on the quest at hand. In the days leading up to the new Moon, you might gather pictures and totems that symbolize your goal. Creating a collage gives you a visual reminder of your dreams.

What does it mean in each different sign?:

Every new Moon is different, and this gives you the chance to claim the energies of each different sign. Even if you don’t have planets in the sign for a given month, it falls somewhere in your birth chart. We each have elements of the entire Zodiac in our make-up, with some more emphasized than others. Find out where the new Moon falls in your chart for clues as to what to “call in” that month.

How is it different from the Full Moon:

The new Moon has a more inward feel, has a void or empty quality, and therefore can be frightening to those not comfortable with uncertainty. Can you learn to trust the dark? It’s the moment when the old passes away and the new is not yet here. That’s why it’s a powerful time for sending out your prayer, wishes, desires to the Universe.

The new moon is a magical time of beginnings, when you can recharge goals, or set new ones.

New moon rituals bring meaning to our lives by “charging” an intention with power. We’re always setting intentions, and this is a way to do it in a more conscious way. There is power in coming up with visions for your life, and keeping them in your sights as they come into being. But even as you fully commit to those visions, stay flexible, since new doors may open that you didn’t expect. At the new Moon, goals and wishes take root, as you reach out for spiritual wisdom, draw on unseen allies and open the door to magical change. You might get what you ask for, or something even better that you can’t imagine yet.

It’s important to come up with a ritual that has meaning for you, instead of trying to follow any set guidelines (unless your part of an established ritual group). You’re the one that knows your personal story best, and what to lift out of that narrative, what will infuse your ritual with power. Here are some general guidelines to shape your rituals using the unique symbols and totems from your life.

Gathering your Sacred Supplies Your altar is where you collect your sacred objects — pictures, found objects and the like. Using herbs with healing or symbolic properties adds to your ritual. Stones and crystals are another powerful ally. Candles are magical, and in its form contains all four of the elements. A small journal on hand allows you to keep a record of your intentions.

Preparing for the Ritual This is the most important part of ritual, since your commitment is the key. Take a ritual bath with sea salt to clear your field of any negative energies. Sage is an herb used by the Native Americans to clear a space, and make it sacred for ritual. It’s available in most health food stores these days, and easiest to use in its wand form. Light the end and blow on it until there is a smoldering glow. Use it around your own body, and in the space of your ritual. Clear your mind with meditation, using music or just quieting down in your cleared, sacred area.

Grounding This is something that’s important anytime, for staying connected to earth energy. Signs that you’re not grounded are mania, nervousness, racing thoughts and the like. Too often we forget to feel the earth under our feet. I’ve mentioned Starhawk a few times on the site, and her tree grounding exercise is one of my own daily rituals. In a nutshell, it’s visualizing the roots going down into the Earth, through the layers, into the core, and then drawing that energy back up through your feet again. It moves through each chakra, coming out the top and down around you. Try this or another variation of grounding before you set new Moon intentions.

Your New Moon Wishes After you’ve cleared a sacred space and settled your energy, you’re ready to set your intentions. Make a list of what you’d like to draw into your life, and Dream Big! The new Moon is a moment to conjure what seems out of reach, and creating the vision is the first step to making it a reality. But these are not just words on paper. As you write them down as intentions, you are committing to doing your part to make them real. Some call it co-creating, since you’re opening to universal energies to set dreams in motion.

Dreams of the Soul Your intentions come from the longings that keep coming up. In the days leading up to the new Moon, give some thought to those longings, and see what images, dreams and streams of thought come up. Use symbolic associations to go along with your intentions. Weave in the element for the new Moon, and think about the houses and planets that are affected by it. For an earth new Moon, for example, you might plant seeds that represent your intention. Rituals are a way to work with universal energies, and draw attention to the particular life lessons, or arena (house, planet, etc) that it illuminates for you.

Symbolic Acts Here’s where you get to be creative. If your intentions are to write a book, or broadcast your ideas out to the world, tie them to a helium balloon and send them off. Write them on a stick and offer it to the fire. To open to love, put lavender and a rose quartz in a small pouch, along with the qualities you’re seeking. If you’re inspired, add a symbolic act to your intention-setting ritual.

Keep them Alive A big part of success with new Moon intentions is what comes after. Find ways to keep them in the front of your awareness. Put them in a visible spot, or keep them in your wallet. Make notes in your journal about your progress. At the full moon , find ways to take action on those intentions, and celebrate any signs of change.

Dream Magick~Sleeping Spells

A Spell for Peaceful Sleep

These are hung by your bed to encourage a restful sleep and sweet dreams.
10 Cardamon pods 1 tsp. Salt 15 cloves
1/2oz peppermint 1/2 oz rosemary dried peel of 1 lemon
Light a white and pink candle, place them on your work area (kitchen table, counter top).
Crush the cloves, cardamon and salt to a fine powder. Blend with the herbs and put in bags.
As you are making the bags concentrate on peaceful memories and beautiful thoughts.
When you hang the bags by your bed say out loud:
Sleep be with me Peaceful sleep Restful sleep
Let my mind be eased Let my body be calmed
Wings of darkness Let the sight of night and dream
be clear, be quiet Let my troubles drift away and let me dream

 

Dream Magick

If you find you need a little help in lucid dreaming, or you want to learn the answer to a specific problem, this charm bag is a great tool. It soothes the waking mind and helps your sleeping mind to focus.

Make or buy a small draw-string bag about 1-2 inches deep. Put in a pinch or two of each of the following:

peppermint 
cinnamon 
lemon verbena 
marigold 
vervain 
hops

During the full moon, put the bag together, then consecrate and charge it. Make certain it is tied tightly. Before sleep each night, rub the bag over your third eye (center of forehead) and concentrate on the question, problem or situation. Then place the bag under your pillow. Continue to concentrate on the situation as you drift off. When you wake, jot down whatever you remember in your dream journal. Your question should be answered within the first few nights. Remember dreams can be symbolic or literal. 

This pouch can also help increase your skill at lucid dreaming, by keeping your mind focused on the fact that you are just dreaming.

Spell for Prophetic Dreams

Make a small pouch out of white fabric or a lace material. This pouch will be placed under your pillow to help induce prophetic dreams. Fill the pouch with equal amounts of the following herbs:

Mugwort

Jasmine

Willow

Oak Leaves

Holly Berries

Mistletoe

Yarrow

Broom

Orris Root

Ivy

Shamrock

Rose

Heliotrope

Empower them with your need and sew them up. Place under your pillow each night before you go to sleep.

Dream of One Who Has Passed Through the Veil

You will need:

1 white candle
A picture of the deceased
A pentagram
Lavender in a natural bag (cotton, muslin)

Light the white candle and stare at the flame for a few minutes. Then put the picture at eye level and say:

"You have passed through the veil;
But with this spell,
I will dream of you soon,
This I foretell.

Place the picture under your pillow. Let the candle burn to a stub, extinguish & place it in the bag of Lavender. Sleep with these items under your pillow for three nights to receive the dream you want.

A Spell to Stop Nightmares

This is a very simple ritual, easy for everyone to perform. It should work for people who have repeating nightmares (children as well ; a friend of mine reported it helped him with insomnia, though)

You need:

one white candle (not big)
one white or silver ribbon (it should be long enough to fit your wrist)
any piece of silver/ an object made of silver that you don't constantly wear on yourself and sleep with it (it can be a ring you don't wear, or a silver cup, even a silver spoon)

Sit in the dark in your bedroom, put the ribbon around the candle, light the candle and put it some place opposite to your face. Watch the flame burning for couple of minutes and relax... then close your eyes and imagine beautiful scenes... which are, in your mind, related to emotions of happiness and peace. It could be anything, it's quite an individual thing. Meditate for as long as you wish... When you feel relaxed and able to focus on one single thing, approach the window, holding the burning candle in your hands, and look at the Moon. If you can't see it from your window, or any other window at your place, or from the yard, just keep on standing there and then just look at the Sky. Say these words:

The Moon is my friend
who's listening to me
bringing the beauty
into my dreams.
The stars are here
forever to shine,
bringing serenity
and peace of mind.
When I close my eyes
they won't be gone,
keeping me safe
till the dawn.

You can repeat these words for as many times you want, if you feel you need to.

After this, extinguish the flame, in case the candle haven't burned down, take off the ribbon and put it around your wrist before going to bed. Leave the candle and a piece of silver on your window till the next morning. Then remove both of them, and the silver ribbon from your wrist. You can repeat this ritual 1-3 times a week, always using a new candle and a new ribbon. However, collect the ribbons. When you feel your nightmares are gone and you got rid of them, you can still go doing this little ritual once a week. It can be done on any night of the week.

__________________

An alternate chant that you can use (contributed by Faye) is this:

"Go away, evil dreams, 
All is not as it seems 
Go far away, leave my sight, 
Let me have but one good night."

Faye said, "I also found that repeating it thrice before a lit light-blue candle intensifies it."

A Spell for Peaceful Sleep

These are hung by your bed to encourage a restful sleep and sweet dreams.
10 Cardamon pods 1 tsp. Salt 15 cloves
1/2oz peppermint 1/2 oz rosemary dried peel of 1 lemon
Light a white and pink candle, place them on your work area (kitchen table, counter top).
Crush the cloves, cardamon and salt to a fine powder. Blend with the herbs and put in bags.
As you are making the bags concentrate on peaceful memories and beautiful thoughts.
When you hang the bags by your bed say out loud:
Sleep be with me Peaceful sleep Restful sleep
Let my mind be eased Let my body be calmed
Wings of darkness Let the sight of night and dream
be clear, be quiet Let my troubles drift away and let me dream

Prophetic Dreams Spell

Before You Begin: Be Careful This is a rather simple spell, but you are "playing with fire" before bedtime. Make sure you have extinguished all burning things before you cross into slumber. Sprinkle some Jasmine on your pillow, and make sure you have a dream-journal or the like at your bedside to record your dreams in, and brew a cup of mugwort tea. (NOTE: mugwort is unhealthy in large doses, so go easy, and consult an Herbal Reference book if you're worried.) Light blue candles on your altar. If you want to gain insight into your passions or your loves, burn Damiana as well. Watch the smoke as it coils, and allow it to carry you off into the trance-like state that you spend most of the day avoiding. Say whatever comes to mind, appealing to the Goddess or God of your choice to guide your dreams. I usually say something like:

Blessed be the Lord and Lady, For they created the world, The earth to hold,
The sun to warm, The moon to guide, The spirit to dream.

Take sips of the mugwort tea as you repeat the words, gaze into the smoke, and when you feel yourself just about to "cross the line" blow out the candle(s) and say:

"So mote it be."

Go to sleep. Dream away. Just remember, you don't always get to hear what you'd like.

Spell to Dream of the Future

 

Dream divination is the power to see into the future and enhance clairvoyance through dreaming.

To foresee an event in the future through a dream, try this powerful dream ritual.

Decide what subject your prophetic/psychic dream will be about:

Does it involve you, or someone else?
What is the subject you need information on? (Money, love, etc.)
How far or near in the future do you wish to see?
Do you have a specific question to ask, or just a general topic?
How do you want the question answered- by a guide, symbols, emotions, etc.?

Once you are sure you know what exactly the prophetic dream should be about, you can gather your items and prepare your working.

Lay out a square of pale blue cloth. In the middle, place a mixture of ash leaves, bay leaves, cinquefoil, heliotrope, holly, jasmine flowers, marigold flowers, mimosa, mugwort, onion, and/or yarrow (however many you can find).

Bring the corners towards the middle and tie it all together like a small bag with a string, ribbon, or piece of yarn.

Then, on a white piece of paper, briefly explain what you need to see in the dream, using the guideline above to tell the main ideas/questions you need prophecies about.

Place the herbal bag and the note beneath your pillow, and make sure you record your dream in a notebook or journal as soon as you awake, so you do not forget it. Use what you learn to prepare you for the future.

Spell to Aid Sleep

Light a blue candle (Carve a rune in the candle that stands for sleep).

Light a stick of incense (I use Cedar/Sage--but you use whatever feels right).

Soft/Instrumental/Relaxing Sounds

Say:

By this candle I do sleep; 
Hidden from the day, in the night so deep.
O Lady Moon, guide my dreams,
Cover me with your beautiful beams.
As the candle flame dies;
Please close my eyes.
Allow me to wake in the warmth of your lover, the Sun. Make my insomnia come undone.

Repeat while the candle is burning. Use a tea-light candle (so the house doesn't burn down)

Candle Sleep Spell

Take a white household candle and light it without a word.

Walk counterclockwise around your bedroom three times.

As you do this, project simple protective phrases into the walls, floors, and windows such as:
"Keep me safe" etc.

Next, walk clockwise three times in silence, meditating on positive, restful phrases.

Finally, blow out the candle, whisper the word "sleep" and turn in for the night.

Note that this spell does not need to be repeated to continue working.

Instead, simply light the candle for a few minutes each night, then whisper "sleep" again before getting into bed.

When the candle is completely spent, repeat the original spell with a new white candle

Dream Pillow for Better Sleep

This is a simple charm to better your sleep with the use of different dried herbs that are added. These herbal pillows can help you reduce stress and induce a better night sleep.

Tools Needed:

3-to 5 inch drawstring bag, of a purple color would be my choice. You can also make your own by folding a 5 inch by 12 inch cloth and stitching up two of the open sides. After adding the herbs, folding over the 3rd side and stitching shut.
1/4 cup of lavender flowers
1/4 cup of Mugwort
1/4 cup of pink rose petals

Instructions:

Simply mix the herbs above and add them into the dream pillow. Apart from using herbs, you can also add an amethyst stone, as these hold amazing protective and calming qualities that will aid in a restful sleep. Once you have put the ingredients within the dream pillow, tie together the drawstring bag, or if you have chosen to make your own, sew it shut. This dream bag should be placed within or under your pillow. Prepare for a good night's sleep!

Finding Your Craft Name

CRAFT NAME
 
It is the custom in witchcraft to adopt a new name upon initiation. This reflects one's new identity as a witch. You may choose to only disclose your craft name to certain people. Usually your craft name should not be disclosed to outsiders. 
 
The main reason for secrecy around craft names is is because of the power of names. It is believed that knowing the craft name of a witch gives a magical power over that person. Many spells involve writing a persons name upon a piece of paper or object. Craft names tend to be individualistic in nature and may reflect heritage or aspirations. 
 
You select a craft name through meditation, study or divination. Some are given craft names by the high priestess. Witches may also change their craft name as they advance in the levels.

Exercise to Help You Find Your Magickal Name
 
Okay, so you are ready to choose your first magickal name... now what? You already saw the list of methods used to choose a magickal name. Yet you still feel not too sure how to go about it. Choosing your own magickal name does not have to be a tedious and confusing activity. Actually the whole process can be quite fun as well as very insightful. 
 
I suggest you the following little exercise to help you with the process of finding your first magickal name. Take some sheets of paper or index cards. If you prefer, you can do this on a notebook too. It is up to you. Now, write on the top of each page the following headings: favorite animals (you can subdivide this into birds, fish, mammals, etc.), favorite colors, favorite elements, favorite seasons, favorite stones-gems, favorite plants (again, subdivide it into flowers, trees, herbs, etc.), and favorite deities. This is just an example of some of the possible headings you can have. I am sure you might come up with other headings (like favorite tarot cards, etc.). You can modify this part of the exercise to fit your needs. Now proceed to make a list for each one. Take your time! Do not rush your answers. Think carefully what you are answering. Remember, your answers will reveal a part of yourself. 
 
Once you are finished, look at all your lists. Some of the lists might be short. Others might be overwhelmingly long. (I know mine was!) Don't worry about that. Take one of the lists and put the others aside where you cannot see them. Look at it carefully. Take your time to examine your answers. Do you feel drawn to certain words in each of those lists? Then highlight them. Repeat this process with each list. 
 
By now you will have narrow your options in each list. Spread all your lists before you and look at them. It is true that your magickal can consist of just one word, such as Willow, Selene, or Agate. However, you will be surprise how many pagans are named Raven or Eagle. Calling Merlin or Rhiannon in a festival can cause a lot of heads to turn. Of course that some duplication can occur. So it is best if you add a second name (or last name if you prefer to call it so). Try to combine the words you have written and see what happens. Maybe one of them will "click." Be as original as possible!

How to Choose a Magickal Name
 
There is no right or wrong method on how to choose your magickal name. The only thing you should keep in mind is that your magickal name should represent your higher self and your personal values and ideas. Below there is a list of methods used to choose a magickal name with a few examples.

Pick your magickal name from a favorite legend. - Beowulf, , Merlin 
  
Look to the Earth for names (flowers, trees, seasons, natural incidents, etc.). - Willow, Storm, Autumn 
  
Study the celestial universe and seek a name. - Star Vision 
  
Name yourself after animals. - Eagle, SheWolf 
  
Name yourself after elements. - FireMoon 
  
Name yourself after gems or herbs . - Ruby, Rowan, Amaranth 
  
Seek your magickal name through dreams and vision quests. - Azura Morganne 
  
Look on a pantheon of Gods/Goddesses for your name. Some pagans are named after their patron(ess). - Rhiannon, Druantia 
  
Find your name among mythological beasts. - Dragon, Phoenix, Unicorn 
  
Combine the essence of two animals. - RavenWolf, JaguarWoman 
  
Combine Earth things with animals. - StormCat 
  
Combine elements and animals. - ShadowHawk

Combine colors and animals or elements or things from Earth. - RedStang, GoldenFire, Silver Springs 
  
Use divination tools (tarot, runes, etc.) to find your name. I know there are those who shuffle the cards and pick the first card. - Magician, Birca 
  
Use numerology to determine the letter or letters of your magickal name. There are a few, very simple books in the market that might help you with this. 
  
Scry for the name. Use a black mirror, a crystal ball, the flame of a candle, or a cauldron with black-tainted water to scry for your name.

When looking for a magickal name, watch around for signs and learn to "see" with your heart and energies for what feels right. Maybe while you are camping, you have seen deers around you peering at you for unusual long periods of time. You will be surprised how some pagans got their magickal names! I got mine, Raven Dance, when I saw it as a title of a movie while changing channels. I read it aloud, and as I did so I knew that was the one. It felt right! After thinking carefully about it, I realized that the raven symbolizes the goddess Morrigu, to whom I had taken as my patroness not so long ago. No wonder it felt good to be called Raven Dance! A friend of mine, Silver Springs, got hers from a Fleetwood Mac song. When I asked her about it, she told me at first that it aroused within her certain emotions she could not explain at the moment. Eventually she discovered her strong "pull" toward the element of Water. By the way, she is great doing cauldron magick! There are two good books you can read on this topic:The Sacred Power in Your Name by Ted Andrews and The Complete Book of Magickal Names by Phoenix McFarland.

Magickal Names
 
As you surf the web and get acquantainted with Wicca and Paganism, you may have noticed some of the names by which many of us go by. These are called magickal names. Those who enter the Craft prefer to choose a new name for themselves. One that has no connection with their old selves. In this way they are separating their magickal selves from the mundane ones. 
 
Many wiccan and pagans choose a secret name for themselves that it is used only during rituals. The use of a magickal name helps you to separate your mind from the everyday world and prepares you for the supernatural work. 
 
Sometimes a magickal name can be everything to a pagan. It means the difference between coming out of the broom closet or remaining there. Some pagans choose to go by their given names. Yet these are few. They are lucky to be able to be open about their religion without worrying how it will affect their families, relations with other people, and jobs. 
 
Many witches have two names; one for correspondence and writing, and another for their private rituals. If you are thinking in acquiring a magickal name, I suggest you start using one name first. You need time to get to know your "new" you. Once you feel comfortable with yourself as a pagan, then you might want another one. There may be a time when you may feel that you have "outgrown" your magickal name and it is time to change it.

Who Chooses Your Magickal Name

The answer to this question depends greatly upon the situation the witch or pagan is in. Solitary witches, like me, choose their own magickal names by themselves. By this, I mean that there is no other person involved in the process (except the Goddess if the witch does a ritual for . The solitary witch uses one or several methods to choose his/her magickal name. (See How to Choose a Magickal Name). They might change their magickal names accordingly to their needs as they grow in the Craft. 
 
In coven enviroment, it varies by coven and tradition. In many covens the initiate acquires a magickal name through a vision quest. Yet it will change as he/she raises within the ranks of the coven. There are covens in which your magickal name is given by your mentor/teacher; or sometimes your mentor/teacher adds another part to the magickal name you have already chosen. Some covens allow you to have two names; a ceremonial one used within the coven, and another known only to the Goddess/God, your mentor/teacher, and you. 
 
Spell Your Magickal Name
 
Okay, you may have chosen a magickal name already. Now, you have noticed that many magickal names are spelled as one word. Examples: SilverHawk, CrystalWater, NightOwl, FreeEagle. But, is this really necessary? Personally I do not think there is a rule in any book that states magickal names must be written as one word. I have always written Raven Dance (my magickal name on the web) as two separate words. Come to think of it, 
I spell all my magickal names as two words. So I leave this up to you to write your magickal name as one or two words.

Choose your craft name carefully...

In the Olde Days, when our pagan ancestors were going through the persecutions we now invoke to justify various kinds of current silliness, witches took craft names to conceal their identities and avoid those annoying visits by the Inquisition. In the course of years, it was noticed that these aliases could also be used as a foundation for building up a magical personality, carrying out various kinds of transformative work on the self, and the like. It's clear, though, that these were mere distractions from the real purpose lying hidden within the craft name tradition. It took contact with other sources of ancient, mystic lore- mostly the SCA, role-playing games, and assorted fantasy trilogies- to awaken the Craft to the innermost secret of craft names: they make really cool fashion statements.

It's in this spirit that Lady Pixie Moondrip offers the following guidelines to choosing your own craft name. Such a guide is long overdue; the point of fashion, after all, is that it allows you to express your own utterly unique individuality by doing exactly the same thing as everyone else. (Those who are particularly drawn to this element of the craft name tradition will find the Random Craft Name Generator near the end of this guide especially useful.)

The approaches given here can be used separately, or combined in a single name to produce any number of interesting effects. Given enough cleverness (and lack of taste), the possibilities are endless!

 

Starting Off Right

Whatever else you do, you should certainly begin your craft name with "Lord" or "Lady." First of all, it's pretentious, and that's always a good way to start. Secondly, it makes an interesting statement about a religion that supposedly has its roots in the traditions of peasants and rural tribes-people. Thirdly, since most Craft groups use exactly these same words for the God and the Goddess, this creates a (by no means inappropriate) confusion about just who it is that we worship.

 

Divine Names

Along the same lines, you can always take the name of a god, a goddess, a mythological being or a legendary hero as your craft name, thus putting yourself on the same level as the powers you invoke.

Having once watched two fifteen-year-old boys get into a fistfight over which had the right to call himself "Lord Merlin," Lady Pixie has a high opinion of the possibilities of this approach. She notes, however, that there seems to be an unwritten law among those who have made use of this type of name already, and it's no doubt wisest to follow suit: the more grandiose the name that you choose, the more of a complete nebbish you should be. Nearly anyone can carry off, say, "Lady Niwalen," but it takes a special kind of person to handle a name like "Lord Jehovah God Almighty." Fortunately, there are those among us who are equal to the task.

 

Non-humans

A related approach involves taking a name that implies (or, better yet, states openly) that you are an elf or some other kind of non-human, magical being. This works best if you are willing to act the part obsessively, and to get really petulant when anyone fails to respond accordingly. Subtlety should be avoided; nobody will catch something like "Lord Elrandir" unless they know Tolkien inside and out. Try something more like "Lord Celeborn Pointears the Real Live Elf."

 

Fantasy Fiction

The burgeoning field of fantasy fiction offers another source for fashionable craft names, and in many cases, for interesting complications as well. One popular approach is to choose the name of your favorite character; as with non-humans, this works best if you play the part and throw a tantrum unless everyone else plays along. Given luck and a sense of the popular, you may be able to choose everyone else's favorite character, too, and end up tussling over a name with a dozen other people. (Mercedes Lackey is a good author to try if this is your goal.)

Both this and the last category have the added advantage of making it clear that, as far as you are concerned, the Craft is simply a setting for make-believe games; this can help spare you the annoyance of actually having to learn something about it.

 

Inventing A Name From Scratch

The best way to do this is to come up with something that sounds, say, vaguely Celtic, perhaps by mangling a couple of existing names together, and then resolutely avoid looking it up in a Welsh or Gaelic dictionary. Luck is an important factor here, but there is always the chance that you'll manage something striking. It took one person of Lady Pixie's acquaintance only a few minutes to blur together Gwydion son of Don and Girion, Lord of Dale, into the craft name "Lord Gwyrionin," and several months to find out that the name he had invented, and used throughout the local pagan scene, was also the Welsh word for "idiot."

 

Following a Grand Tradition

Though the ink is barely dry on most of our modern pagan "traditions," there's at least one ancient European tradition that many people in the Craft follow: the tradition of stealing things from non-Western peoples. Fake Indian craft names are always chic, especially if the closest thing to contact with Native American spirituality you've ever had is watching Dances With Wolves at a beer party. Better still, mix whatever Craft teachings you have absorbed with a few ideas you picked up from a Michael Harner book, break out the buckskins and the medicine pouches, and proclaim yourself a shaman. Mind you, there are people out there who have received real Native American medicine teachings, and they may just turn you into hamburger if you piss them off; still, that's the risk you run if you want to be really trendy.

 

The Random Craft Name Generator

On the other hand, if you are individualistic like everybody else, you may be looking for a name that expresses the uniqueness of your personality but still sounds like all the other craft names you've ever heard. Fortunately, this isn't too hard. Several years back, a gentleman of Lady Pixie's acquaintance told her that the best way to get laid at a pagan gathering was to have the PA system announce, "Will Morgan and Raven please come to the information booth?" Sincethe resulting crowd would include at least a third of the female attendees, he went on, it wouldn't be too hard to meet someone interesting. While Lady Pixie has not tried this out herself, she has tested the principle behind it in a series of controlled double-blinded experiments, and discovered a rule that she has modestly named Moondrip's Law: 80% of all craft names are made up of the same thirty words combined in various not particularly imaginative ways.

The discovery of this principle has allowed her to make the once difficult task of creating craft names easy, by means of the Random Craft NameGenerator, release 1.0.

To use the RCNG, take either two or three of the following words (using any convenient randomizing method, including personal preference). If you take two, simply run them together; if you take three, one of the words becomes the first part of the name, and the other two are combined to form the second.
 

Wolf Raven Silver Moon Star Water Snow Sea Tree Wind Cloud Witch Thorn Leaf White Black Green Rowan Swan Night Red Mist Hawk Feather Eagle Song Sky Storm Sun



Try it out: "Rowan Moonstar." "Raven Blackthorn.""Silver Ravenw.." - uh, never mind. For the expanded version (RCNG 1.01), come up with a name by any of the methods covered elsewhere in this guide, or take some ordinary American name, and add a two-word name produced on the RCNG to the end: "Gwydion Silvertree." "Sybil Moonwitch." "Squatting BuffaloFirewater." The possibilities are endless! (Note that this list will change with shifts in fashion; Lady Pixie expects to bring out an upgrade to RCNG 2.0 in a year or two.) It may be said by the narrow-minded (who are probably all covert Christians, anyway) that members of the Craft have better things to do withtheir time than the above guidelines would suggest. This shows a complete lack of insight. First of all, in an increasingly blase and tolerant culture, it's becoming hard for white middle-class Americans to get that rush of self-righteous gratification that comes from pretending to be members of a persecuted minority; we may not be able to get burned at the stake by calling ourselves silly names, but at least we can get laughed at, and that's something. Secondly, if we keep on treating craft names (and the Craft as a whole) as fashion statements, that spares us the unpleasant drudgery of actually learning magic and making it part of our lives. Finally, if we're pretentious enough, those people who actually know enough to magic their way out of a wet paper bag will roll their eyes and go somewhere else, and we can keep on fighting our witch wars, casting vast astral whammies and invoking powers we don't have a clue how to control, all in the serene certainty that no one is actually going to get hurt. On the other hand, we could take the Craft seriously...but who wants to do that? - - - Lady Pixie Moondrip
