C is for Chocolate Chip Cookie of Compassion (spell)

I have always been a witch, in a religious and spiritual way as well as a practical daily way. That said there are still great religious leaders of other faiths that I have enjoyed learning from. The Dalai Lama is one. I find him brilliant though I do not practice Buddhism, And though I do not practice Christianity I do enjoy some of their leaders. One such person is Joyce Meyer. I like her spunk and I like that she talks about doing the right thing and taking personal responsibility for yourself. You may be wondering what on earth that has to do with cookies. Years ago I listened to a CD of hers and she had a line that stuck me. Basically if it was something like if your feeling bad for yourself  go make cookies and bring them to someone else. This gets you doing something and thinking about something else.  So this spell is based on that line

Sometimes we get very caught up in our own world of needs, and wants, and responsibilities. Sometimes this makes us short with the ones we care about. Sometimes we get in to the silly argument of my life is harder than yours. This is as I said, just silly. We all have our mountains to climb. We all have our obstacles.  So have a little love for others that are going through it too. Have some compassion and show it with this cookie.

This recipe is based on my college roommates recipe but you can use any chocolate chip cookie recipe you like. For that matter if they don’t like chocolate chip then you can make them another type of cookie.

Preheat the oven to 350
mix in a bowl
1 cup almond butter or peanut butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg and as many chocolate chips as you like
put on a cookie sheet with parchment paper rows of tablespoon amount cookies. Then bake for 10 min.

Now being a kitchen witch I am always “playing” with my food. I visualize and pour in energy. So while your mixing maybe you can add in the spice of love or better health or overcoming obstacles. I am assuming you know a little something about what this person is going through and so you can add that appropriate intention.

When the cookies are all done. Pack them up and bring them to your friend. Maybe even sit down to some cookies and tea and make a point to just listen to their needs. Or invite them to your house and do the same. Since you know me and how I feel about spells for or on other people. I suggest you say something like “by the way these are extra special cookies I made just for you and I put the intention in that…….” You can reword it depending on how much that person believes in magic or if prayer is better to say or what have you.

Again I can’t take full credit for this spell because it all happened one night on The Pagan Mama when we were brain storming C words.  Also one night when Little was 2 ish I posted on my facebook page that I wanted to run away (if you’re a mom you get this) Hubby was home, baby was asleep. A dear friend wrote back and said her baby was asleep why don’t I come over for some fresh-baked cookies.  It was just what I needed and made me feel worlds better.

C is for Car Protection (spell)

wpid-IMAG2396.jpg

or a really big purse depending on how you look at it. (change of clothes for little check, snacks check, water check)

either which was unfortunately we are in our car a lot. We live in a wonderful place that has many wonderful things but a walking town is not one of them. Yes we can walk we just can’t say walk to the library or to get groceries.  So in the car we go.  Which means a protection spell of course and as it is a car it should a song that is sung loudly. so channel your inner Chuck Berry and belt it out

“Driving around in my automobile
My cars protected by the Gods seal,
I blow a kiss to the 4 directions
and ask them for their protection
no harm shall come to us you know
we are safe everywhere we go”

With all things magic there is the work to be done. Do a serious cleans of your car now and then. Clean it all out, wash it up. gets is fluids all up and oil changed. Smudge the vehicle and then just like a house hold your hands up about an inch off the car and build your protection into the walls of the car.

P.S. Thank you to The Pagan Mama’s who helped me brain storm which C spell to do this week. They had so many good ideas  I will have another delicious spell on posted on Saturday

C is for calm and comfort (Spell)

wpid-IMAG2375.jpg

I know I should be talking about cleaning and cleansing given the season so maybe next week. This week here are two more pages out of my Book of Magic.
Calm
The first page is a labyrinth I can trace with my finger as I saw the words
Round and Round
Up and down
deep breath in
and stressed breath out.

Comfort
The second page can be said before getting into a bath (you know how I love my baths!) or when lighting a candle.
Goddess and God within
Goddess and God without
Comfort, sooth and nourish my soul
so the negativity does not take its toll
I do my part to take care of me.
This is my will so mote it be!

Building a Boundary (bonus spell)

boundary spell  bookofshadowsandblessings.wordpress.com

Here is a page from my spell book. As I am doing the Pagan Blog Project with just spells this year I decided to make a new spell book with just spells.

I find this one very useful.

If you can’t read my writing 🙂 It says
Boundary, Boundary, Boundary, Bright
in the dark and in the light
Nothing passes through this line
unless they be friends of mine

You can build this mentally or you can also make the line out of salt.

B is for Blues Be Gone Bath

image
If you have read my blog you know I am generally an upbeat person. I try to focus on the positive because lets face it we all have the negative and it is easy to lose yourself in the Swamp of Sadness (if you don’t know that reference you NEED to watch Never Ending Story) This however does not mean that I am one of those naturally bubbly person. Now even people who know me, might be surprised by this. My positivity is something that is cultivated.

So when I need a little extra pick-me-up I always go for a bath. For one I love a bath. I use them for a lot of work but Blues-be-gone and Sick-be-gone are two of my favorite. For me the firs thing to do is draw a very hot bath.  I also sprinkle maybe half a cup of my detox bath mix in the bath. I make a batch of this use it till its gone then make a new batch. You can see from the picture above I keep in a Ball canning jar. I just put all the ingredients in and shake it up. then I can pour it right from the jar.
Detox bath mix
1 cup epsom salt
1 cup baking soda
1 tablespoon ginger

Soak in the tub and let your body and mind relax. This is also a good time to do meditation. When you feel you are done with the bath. visualize all the blues and sadness being drawn out of your body and into the bath water.
Say these or similar words
“Blues and Sadness be gone from me!
Sadness and blues you must flee!
Happiness will now abound,
For I am wrapped in love from all around!
Pull the stop and let the water leach the sadness out of your body and take it down the drain with it.

Towel off and go drink 2 glasses of water. You need to replenish

And if you read my post earlier about being in a broom closet, this is yet another spell you can do in the broom closet again even if you live with non-pagan friendly folk.
