A look at how the human chakra system relates to The Shift and to the universe as a whole.


A few candle spells

Posted by sdax_ayagagix on 2005.07.14 at 22:12
This is to Deepen the Love between two people.

2 red human candles, one male & one female
1 black & one white candle
crushed mandrake root
strawberry leaves
adam & eve root (2 pieces)
deep plate or dish
red string
pieces of rose quartz
rose petals

Light the black & white cnadles on your altar, the black on the left, the white on the right.
Bore a small hole into the heart area of each human candle (or one hole at each chakra point). Put a small pinch of the love herbs into the hole. Scratch your name on one candle, your lover's on the other. Face them together on a round plate or deep dish. Write your initials on one piece of adam & eve root & your lover's initials on the other. Place the 2 pieces between the 2 candles. Add rose quartz & rose petals on the plate between the candles. Tie the candle with a red string clockwise. Light both candles and let them burn down till the dish is a pool of wax. Let it cool. Remove the wax,now embedded with the other ingredients. Bury it on the night of a full moon for an ongoing relationship or on the night of the new moon for a new relationship.

Hold a vanilla scented candle in both hands
until the wax feels warm to the touch.
Then chant 3 times...

"Vanilla, chase this mess away,
keep it far from me today."

Light the candle and let it burn until anxiety disappears.

From WitchNet's Book of Shadows



1 pink candle
1 bottle of 100% Virgin Olive oil
Something to light the candle


Take the candle and place it on a table or your altar.
Now take the olive oil and rub on to the candle starting in the middle
and going up, then starting in the middle going down.
While purifying the candle with the oil
you want to recharge the candle with love and desire,
so visualize love and channel all your emotion into the candle.
After the oil is finished, take a knife and carve what it is
you want into the candle.

EXAMPLE: I Wish For Sally Jo Ann to love me

After finished writing in the candle, simply light it and concentrate on love
and throw as much emotion (love) into the flame of the candle as possible,
you may even want to add words if you wish.
Sit and do this until the candle has burnt out.

Once the candle has burned out, the spell is finished.

Candle rituals have been around for centuries. You may remember your first candle ritual when you were 2 years old on your birthday. The candles were lit and you were told to close your eyes, make a wish and blow out the candles. Candle spells are pretty much the same principle. You light the candles, maybe close your eyes while repeating a spell or that which you wish for and visualizing it coming true. It is a combination of the need or desire, and the ability to visualize the outcome. Candle burning spells and rituals are very easy to do and to have success with if they are done correctly and you truly believe. The different colors of candles each have their own symbolism. Here is a table of the colors and their meanings...

White: truth, purity
Red: love, health, sex, strength
Green: money, luck, fertility
Black: discord, evil, negativity, confusion
Brown: neutrality, uncertainty, hesitation
Pink: love, morality, honour
Purple: power, business progress, ambition
Orange: attraction, stimulation
Greenish Yellow: jealousy, anger, discord
Gray: neutrality, stalemate, negativity
Light Blue: tranquility, patience, health
Dark Blue: depression, changeability

Candle spells can be very easy or complicated. It all depends on how much time you want to put into a ritual. It can be as simple as lighting a green candle and chanting... money money come to me.
It can also be very long and complicated lasting several days with the repositioning of the candles each day. The choice is always yours.

The first thing you want to do is get the appropriate color candles for your peticular desire. Then you need to annoint the candle with oil. Olive oil will do fine. You need to rub the candle with the oil from the middle outward to the ends. As you are doing this you need to be thinking of your desired goal. Then sit and meditate on your desire after lighting the candles, then read your spell or chant your appropriate mantra.You don't need some elaborate spell with a bunch of big words or words you don't even know how to pronounce. You can make your own spells or rituals. Think of your desire then make a simple little rhyme that tells about your desire in it. It doesn't even have to rhyme. This is all about will power, the power of positive thinking, and creative visualization.
If you can do these things then you will send those vibrations out into the universe and eventualy they will materialize.

Twelve wild Swans Study Online Study Group

Facilitated by Reclaiming Teacher MoonSong

About the book...

A fairy tale about twelve wild swans is transformed
into a set of instructions for an initiatory journey
into the world of magic and Witchcraft. The lessons
set out in The Spiral Dance are taken to a more
profound level in this book, the first ever written to
provide advanced magical training. A sourcebook for
circles, covens, and groups, this volume instructs on
three levels--the craft of magical training,
inner-spiritual development, and outer work in the
greater world...

Each chapter of the book is constructed to accommodate
three levels of experience, and three areas of focus.
The Element Path teaches the basic tools of our
tradition, the Inner Path directs those tools toward
our own personal and individual healing, while the
Outer Path helps us to take these tools out into the
community to inspire change, build community, and
confront the unhealthy power structures in our

a carrot, an egg, and a cup of coffee

Posted by qachatu on 2005.07.04 at 10:13
A young woman went to her mother and told her about how her life was so hard for her, she did not know how she was going to make it and wanted to give up. It seemed as one problem was solved, a new one arose.

Her mother took her to the kitchen, there she filled three pots with water and placed each on a high fire. Soon the pots came to a boil. In the first she placed carrots, in the second she placed eggs, and in the third she placed ground coffee beans.
She let them sit and boil, without saying a word. After a while she turned off the stove and placed the carrots and eggs each in a bowl, pouring the coffee into a third bowl. Then placed all three bowls infront of her daughter.

"Tell me, what do you see?"

"Carrots, eggs and coffee," she replied.

Her mother brought her closer and asked her to feel the carrots. She did and noted that they were soft. The mother then asked the daughter to take an egg and break it. After pulling off the shell she noted the hardboiled egg within. Finally, the mother asked the daughter to sip the coffee. The daughter smiled, as she tasted its rich aroma.

The daughter then asked, "What does it mean, mother?"

Her mother explained that each of these objects had faced the same adversity, boiling water and each had reacted differently. The carrot went in strong, hard and unrelenting. However, after being subjected to the boiling water, it softened and became weak. The egg had been fragile. It's thin outer shell had protected its liquid interior, but after sitting through the boiling water, its insides became hardened.
The ground coffee beans were unique, however. After the boiling water, they had changed the water.

"Which are you?" She asked her daughter. "When adversity knocks at your door, how do you respond? Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?"

Think of this: Which am I? Am I the carrot that seems strong, but with pain and adversity do I wilt and become soft and loose my strength? Am I the egg that starts with a malleable heart, but changes with the heat? Did I start with a fluid spirit, but after a death, a breakup, a financial hardship or other trial, have I become hardened and stiff? Does my shell look the same, but on the inside I am bitter and tough with a stiff spirit and hardened heart? Or am I the coffee bean, when things are at their worst, you get better and change the situation around you.

So... which are you?
