Life Balancing Spell
You take two square pieces of paper and draw a spider diagram on each.
Make sure there's a point for each aspect of your life (i.e. social, personal, family, love, health, creative, spiritual etc).
Give each aspect a colour - preferably one corresponding to the required aspect (i.e health/green love/pink or red).
Give each point markers, either 0-5 or 0-10 depending on how much space you have.
Label one piece of paper "Present - (date)" and the other "Target - (due date)".
Now on the Present diagram, be honest and give yourself a mark out of 5 (or 10) on where you think you're balanced right now on each aspect.
On the Target diagram mark where you'd like to be by the time you reach the due date.
Link the marks together on both diagrams with a ruler and pencil.
Under each aspect, colour the corresponding spaces (eg if you marked health as 3/5 colour from 0 - 3.
Take a long look at the Present diagram and think about why you want these numbers to change.
When you feel you are ready, fold or roll the Present diagram and burn it
(make sure you have something heat proof for it to burn out in).
Now take the Target diagram, hold it, put it in your lap or in front of you.
Close your eyes and use this time to visualise how you want your life to be balanced out, what your targets are and why you want to change them.
Go to yourself on the due date and have a conversation with your future self, ask questions about how you can make it work, does anything specific have to change? etc (this may require you to have other supplies, depending on your experience)
Once you are ready, come out of your visualisation, ground/centre yourself and when you are comfortable, relax and open your eyes.
Leave the Target diagram somewhere you can see it daily, without trying to "look" for it. Somewhere your subconscious will know.
If you feel the need for it, have something relating to the aspect that needs the most work on you at all times (i.e. a herb/pouch/crystal/the diagram)
Weight Adjustment Spell: Silhouette ~ pg 1030
I searched around for a weight loss spell last year and came across this one. It's a pretty simple spell, drawing the outline of your current shape on a piece of paper (I used red). Then draw on top of this outline, with the shape you desire (I used green).
As you draw the second outline, imagine the new you.
Take a moment to visualise the required outcome.
Put the drawing somewhere you can see it to find the encouragement you need.
Burn a candle next to it to reinforce the outcome (I used a mini green spell candle)
This worked for me for a few months, then I moved my room around and the drawing got covered, which lost its "oomph"
I will be re-doing this spell again with my current outline and putting the drawing somewhere else. Overall good result though. If you are thinking of trying this, don't make the same mistake I did by covering it up lol. ツ
Dream Pillow (Hecate's Pillow) ~ pg 358
I did this with a friend, we made a Hecate's Pillow for each of us and wrote a spell/chant specifically for Hecate and charging the pillows for that little extra oomph.
This was also performed on The Night of Hecate (15 Nov '10). We had an old fashioned sleep over, performed a little magic, charged a pillow or two, chillaxed and then slept with the dream pillows hanging on each bed post.
We had different outcomes, my dreams were more steady and relaxed, I didn't wake during the night as I usually would. My friends dreams were more intense as the days went by, she took her dream pillow home with her and carried on using it. Mine is still hanging from the post I put it on.
I'm sure my friend will post some detail about her experience with this pillow. I'll check with her first before posting the spell we wrote together.
