I have been meaning to start a new feature on this blog for a while, about the little ‘secrets’ I hold with my little black book, so take this as post numero uno!
Recently a lovely friend of mine emailed me for a little something, and thanks to his email it kind of spurred me into a ‘creative’ process. I looked at my travel BOS or Little Black Book and started noting down recipes and spells, chants and prayers etc that I have found very useful. I usually list chants and prayers and information in this book as I travel around with it, and I don’t want to flick out a spell that may need 50 items to get energy going, that the mind can’t summon. So, without going into too much detail, here a few of my favourites, and they will also appear on the Online BOS on my website (if any of you have spells, chants or variations of other rituals feel free to email them to me if you’d like them featured on the website):
Justice Chant (to Goddess Nemesis)
May Nemesis stalk those who dare to slander me and cause me care
All that they attempt to cause me pain,
Rebound on them and be in vain.
Let the hurt they cause to me and mine
Be bound round them like ivy’s vine.
And when they lay them down to sleep,
May nightmares stalk and waking weep.
Until the day their conscious bids
They tell the truth for all to hear,
And leave my reputation clear.
All this I ask in Justice’s name,
And wish on them the very same.
You might want to make a creativity working candle for this, I used an orange candle.
Muse of art,
Muse of sound,
Muse of thought, gather round.
I summon your power,
Your guiding light.
Guide my hands in this creative rite.
Hearken as the Witch’s word
Calls the lady and the lord
Moon above and earth below
Sky’s cool blue and sun’s hot glow
In this right and ready hour
Fill these pages with thy power
May no unprepared eye to see
The secrets which trusted be
To I who walk the hidden road
To find the hearthstone’s calm abode
Guardians from the four directions
Hear me and lend thy protection
May these truths of Earth and skies
Shaded be from prying eyes
But to the witches whose map this be
May the way be plain to see
And through all the coming ages
May we find home in these pages
So mote it be!
Take a white candle – either tapered or a figure candle to represent the person.
Carve the person’s full name onto the candle and anoint with a suitable oil.
Place the candle in the holder, and place the holder on top of a photograph of the person.
(If you cannot obtain a photograph then a personal item will suffice)
Light the candle and say:
*Name* – may you be blessed
May all good things come to you
May nothing cause you harm
May your heart be light
May your travels be safe
May your health be good
May your mind be sound
May your friendships be fruitful
May you be blessed in everyway.
Allow to burn for a period of time before extinguishing.
Repeat for 7 days.
