Faerie Call

Photo: Faerie Call
You will need the following items for this spell: 
1 Large Jar
Mixed Hard Candy
Cup of Sugar
Lavender Oil
Rose Petals
Your Voice
On a full moon go deep into the forest or wood; go to where the moon shines the bright. 
To your jar add your mixed candy and say, "Sweets, sweets, that's what you are," 
Add your sugar and say, "Sugar, sugar, that's what you are," 
Add your oil and rose petals and say, "With the moon light above, I call upon the Fairy Queen and King, bring forth your tides, I am here to harm none, only to greet and love." 
Dig a hole big enough to fit your jar in, allowing the top to be open, but do not let any dirt get inside. Leave the jar for one week; do not go back until the week is up. Sit close by the jar, do a little meditation, then you should start seeing the fairies.

Attracting Fae

Photo: Attracting Fae... 
Prepare the herbs, Burn a white candle, and burn an image of the heptagram in the dark of night. 
Relax and enjoy the night air...  watching the candle burn itself out, and watching for the illusive and magickal creatures to make an appearance.  
You may or may not enjoy an unusual and interesting experience, and that is what magic is all about.

Frozen Strawberry Lemonade

Frozen Strawberry Lemonade
Ingredients ~
2 cups frozen (or fresh) strawberries (about 24 strawberries)
1/2 cup crushed ice (or smallest cubes possible)
1/2 cup lemon juice (fresh or bottled)
3 packets of sugar substitute or 2 Tablespoons of sugar (or to taste)
3/4 cup water

Optional ~
1/4 lemon, sliced, for garnish
1 Tablespoon of ginger, fresh or dried (finely chopped)
A few mint leaves

**Although you can use fresh strawberries, the best slushee effect is achieved by blending frozen strawberries with crushed ice. If you use frozen strawberries, let them thaw a tiny bit before blending so that they are easier to crush in your blender. Also, it's best to use precrushed ice; if using ice cubes, choose the smallest ones to avoid harming the blades of your blender. The length of time you blend the drink will determine its thickness. More blending time equals more liquid. Less time gives you a drink you can eat with a spoon!


step 1 - Allow frozen strawberries to thaw slightly.
step 2 - Before placing ice cubes in blender, crush large chunks by sealing securely inside a Ziploc® Brand Storage Bag and rolling over the bag firmly with a rolling pin.
step 3 - Combine lemon juice, strawberries, sugar substitute or sugar, crushed ice and water in blender jar. If blades get stuck, add more water.
step 4 - Blend on high with lid tightly secured until smooth and thick.
step 5 - Pour into glasses and serve immediately. Garnish with a slice of lemon, if desired.

Baron Samedi is a Lwa, a demigod of the Haitian Vodou system that intermediates between humans and the Creator. Baron Samedi is the Lwa of death, gambling, and sex
The Lwa also Loa or L'wha are the spirits of Haitian Vodou. They are also referred to as Mystères and the Invisibles, in which are intermediaries between Bondye (Bon Dieu, or good god)—the Creator, who is distant from the world—and humanity. Unlike saints or angels however, they are not simply prayed to, they are served. They are each distinct beings with their own personal likes and dislikes, distinct sacred rhythms, songs, dances, ritual symbols, and special modes of service

God in Vodou is most often seen as distant and not readily accessible to humans. Yes, Vodou is a monotheistic tradition. Oftentimes, God is considered as not accessible because simply "he is too busy." Meaning that God has the whole universe to take care of, he has many things to do. This is understandable. God is seen in the same way Roman Catholics do. He is a good, kind, loving God. Most Vodouisants are also Catholic. Mass and church services is attended. One thing about God is certainly true, we listen about God (when we go to mass), we hear about God, but we do not see God. We worship God. Due to all of this, God has invested power in the spirits we know as Lwa.

The Lwa, unlike God, are readily accessible to us. A Lwa is, at its most basic definition, a spiritual entity. Lwa can be contacted through possession. Now, this is not considered demonic. Possession is essentially what all Vodou ceremonies are directed to achieve. This is what is wanted. Possession is sought. In fact, the Kanzo (Vodou initiation) is aimed to invoke possession and improve the ability of its candidates to become possessed.

Vodouisants, do not worship the Lwa. The Lwa are served. The Lwa is served by giving them their favorite foods, wearing their colors, observing their sacred days (by abstinence), through Vodou ceremonies, etc. The Lwa in turn serve us. They confer upon us material blessings, physical well being, protection, abundance, etc. See this is a double sided matter. Without us the Lwa would not exist, and without them we would cease to exist as well.

Now that you have that basic understanding, let's get a little more complicated, shall we? The Lwa are organized into groups. This makes it easier for us to serve them, as well as define certain characteristics of those Lwa. These Lwa may have a number of different things in common. Vodou liturgy is divided into three separate groups.

New Moon Ritual

New Moon Ritual
Needed items:
~ Paper
~ Black candle

Cast your circle as you normally do. Light the black candle. 

Write down on a piece of paper those negative traits or problems you wish to be rid of. 
As you burn your paper concentrate on the things to be banished from your life. 
Feel the fear or negativity and then let it go as you cast it into the fire reciting:

"Hecate, Honored Crone of Night, 
I call upon you to put things right.
Transform these negative thoughts and pain 
and help my life be whole again."

Since you have created a void by banishing the negativity in your lives, you will need to fill that void.
Close your eyes and visualize a blue light washing over you, filling you.

You will now need to envoke laughter because that is the strongest banishment of all and the best protection. As you circle deosil, visualize the happiest moments in your life. Let the uninhibited child in you come out to play. Laugh. Even if it is forced in the beginning, it will come if you open the door. Let the laughter fill you.

~ Warning ~ Hecate is a Goddess of Balance if you untrue in your intentions she will see it in your heart you can not hide the Truth from Hecate if you are not Totally Innocent in the situation, she will Punish both of you.

Protection Spell

Protection Spell Against Negative Influences, Spell To Counter Attacks, Spell To Neutralise Someone Who Wishes You Harm, Encapsulation Spell
Raise energy first through yourself - If you need to outsource energy use crystals, incense, and candles
Visualize the negative person being enfolded in a bubble of clear, mirror smooth energy to keep their negativity inside.
This bubble in which they become encased contains their energy emissions absolutely, and doesn't make any distinction between good or bad emissions. So should they think loving thoughts, they will be healed just the same as they will be getting painful repercussions from thinking or broadcasting ill thoughts.
Here is the core spell:

All acts of negativity
will now return threefold to thee.

All bad you try to send my way
upon your own self will hold sway.

All actions, thoughts and words of hate
become your own decided fate.

By all up high, the worlds and wise
by oceans wide and deep blue skies
by day and night, and powers three
this is my will, so mote it be!

* The more power you can raise before you cast this spell, the longer lasting and more profound the spell becomes.

Labyrinths and Mandalas

Labyrinths and Mandalas 
Labyrinths are linked to Mandalas - sanskrit for 'circle that contain the Essence'.
Like mandalas, labyrinths are archetypal collective symbols that transcend all cultures because they are grounded in consciousness itself.

Elemental Spirits

Earth Spirits:

The Earth element is the most dense. It is represented by Winter and the night. It is inhabited by Ladies, goblins, gnomes, and trolls. They are mostly green, and have a receptive energy. Fairies or ladies are characterized by their kindness and for being the oldest inhabitants of the plant. They may either be imposing or tiny; their powers, however, are incredible and dominate nature.

Air Spirits: 
The air element, featured by intelligence, represented by Spring and Dawn is inhabited by Sylphs in the form of butterflies. They control winds, help birds in their migrations and flowers in their pollination. Their light yellow- toned translucent appearance is present in the scent of wet herb threatening to rain. Sylphs

Water Spirits:
Nymphs, Mermaids, Nereids, Naiads, Undines,and Water Goblins.The water element featured by love and cures, represented by Autumn and Sunset, is inhabited by nymphs, mermaids, nereids, and undines. They appear as mythological creatures in all liquids, such as seas, rivers, fresh water brooks, falls, and clouds. Their aspect vary depending on their habitat. Nereids rule the seas; undines called Naiads by the Greek, are found in lakes. They are mostly blue and a receptive energy. Like mermaids, they attract any sailor with their songs until they wreck. They are the ones channeling natural river - Water Spirit by Cristina McAllister

Fire Spirits: 
The Fire element features both creation and destruction. It is represented by Summer, and daylight. It is inhabited by Salamanders, Farralis and Ra-Arus, appearing as reddish salamanders and dragons. They give the idea that with courage and imagination everything can be done. They send forth projective energy, and dominate the element. No fire would be ignited without their intervention

Natural Insecticide Recipes

Natural Insecticide Recipes
There is natural insecticide you can use in your home. You can use natural insecticide recipes that will be much safer for your family and your pets.
Boric acid is a very common ingredient in natural insecticiderecipes. This is because boric acid is a much safer alternative in many cases.

For ants, you can mix the boric acid with sugar; then add water. Next, you soak cotton balls in it and put them in bottle caps. Place them where ants have been seen.

Boric powder has often been called "roach powder." Get a squeeze bottle of it, or make up your own. Squirt the stuff along floor boards and behind appliances. Put it anywhere you have seen roaches coming from. It is a great natural insecticide for roaches.
For termites, you can mix boric acid with a non-toxic version of antifreeze called propylene glycol. The glycol is good because it helps the boric acid to go into the wood better. This is a natural insecticide for many types of termites.

You can also use boric acid in this natural insecticide recipe to kill silverfish. You mix 20% boric acid with any inert ingredient. Then you place this natural insecticide in areas like your closets and anywhere you have seen silverfish. Often, silverfish are seen in an attic, this is a good place to put it.

Boric acid can be used to make a natural insecticide for surfaces where you might find any crawling bugs as well. You have to boil some water, and then dissolve a small amount of boric acid into it. Wipe this onto surfaces. If the surfaces aren't ones you wash often, you won't have to apply it often.

If you have no luck with boric acid, you might try the natural insecticide Diatomaceous Earth. It is made from the fossilized remains of plankton and other tiny sea creatures. It kills by puncturing the insects' hard covering, or exoskeleton. Then, the insect will be dehydrated by this natural insecticide.

Diatomaceous Earth works well to eliminate silverfish, moths and roaches. If an animal has brought fleas into your home, this natural insecticide will take care of them, too. It destroys its victims in as little as one day. Or, it could take as long as two weeks.

Orange and/or lemon extracts. These work very well on hard-bodied insects such as ants.

If you want to use natural insecticide in your home, you have many avenues. You can make your own using boric acid. You can purchase a product such as Diatomaceous Earth. Or, you can go shopping for other forms of natural insecticides. It's all up to you.

Vanilla anti-anxiety spell

This spell is to help you to stop feeling anxious, fearful or worried. Clearly, it is important that you address any issues or people in your life that are causing these feelings in addition to casting this spell. Casting this spell will help you to feel calm and to be better able to deal with whatever the problems are, and if they are things over which you have little control this spell is ideal. 
You will need: a white candle, vanilla extract or oil, lavender oil, sprigs of lavender. 
Sprinkle some vanilla and lavender oil over the white candle. 
As with all spells, make sure that you are grounded. 
Then sit down and cradle the unlit candle in your hands until it becomes warm to the touch. 
While you are doing this be aware of your breathing, and keep it slow and deep. 
The vanilla and lavender scents will begin to fill you with feelings of peace and calm. 
When the candle is warm in your hands light it and chant three times:
“Anxiety and fear go away. 
To quiet and calm they will give way. 
I am calm, I am serene. 
Tranquility I do glean. 
This is my will, so shall it be. 
Harm to none nor return on me.” 
Let the candle burn until your feelings of anxiety have left you.

*** Crystal healing is not a substitute for medical advice and treatment. It may be used as a supplement. If you choose to use crystal healing on yourself or others, you do so at your own risk.

Amethyst is a crystal with a mysterious energy. When you see it's unusual purple color, you know it's special. It is quartz that has formed in the presence of manganese which creates the purple hue. Normally it is quite clear and may have inclusions, rainbows and/ or clouding within the crystal. It's color makes it a popular choice for jewelry. Amethyst can be a very pale clear purple or a very deep almost black. When it forms naturally, it could have a blend of other crystals -  Ametrine  which is amethyst and citrine.
