Dream Spells

DREAM PROTECTION SPELL

You Need: 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (or another fruit juice) 1 tablespoon of sea salt

1 teaspoon of vegetable oil 1 light weight cauldron (a glass bowl works too)

1 piece of paper 1 black pen 2 black or red candles (1 of each works best)

Mix the lemon juice, sea salt, and oil into your cauldron.

Place the cauldron in front of you on the floor.

Sit comfortably and place the candles beside the cauldron (red on left, black on right.)

Rip the piece of paper in half then set it aside.

Light both candles, left one first. Now close your eyes and visualize a sphere.

In the middle of the sphere, visualize yourself stuck inside, trying to get out.

See the black and red candles burning around you. Watch as the candles spin around you,

getting faster each time they pass. Then see yourself magickally being released.

On one piece of paper, draw a picture of what you saw. On the other, write down your biggest fear.

Light both pieces of paper on fire, using the black for the written half, red for the drawing.

Then throw them into your cauldron.

Take the cauldron outside and pour it (paper and all) into a hole in the ground.

Cover the hole with dirt. The spell is done.



SLEEP SPELL & OIL

To Induce You will need:

1/2 oz carrier oil 12 drops bergamot 3 drops lavender 3 drops cypress

Directions: In 1/2 oz of carrier oil (I used apricot kernel, sweet almond would also be good),

mix 12 drops of bergamot, 3 drops lavender and 3 drops cypress.

To increase the benefits of your sleep, apply a few drops behind your ears, spreading the excess out over

your jawline. Do this immediately before bed.

This is a good oil blend for people who have trouble falling asleep at night,

or for people who sleep restlessly.



TO KEEP AWAY NIGHTMARES AND BRING PROPHETIC DREAMS

Stitch a small pillow of muslin of another light weight fabric.

create a pillow that is able to be opened by putting Velcro at one end.

This allows you to "refresh" the pillow from time to time with new herbs without having to

unstitch the end or make a new pillow. You may wish to cover muslin pillow with a light

weight, washable "casing" as well. Once you stitch the pillow together, fill with:

4 oz dried lavender flowers 4 oz dried sage

2 oz ground orris root-as a preservative-optional

4 oz deer's tongue herb 2 oz cedar shavings

4 oz coltsfoot herb 4 oz sweet fern 2 oz violet

Keep dream pillow under or inside of your regular bed pillow. When storing your pillow each

morning you may either leave it where it is or put it inside of a plastic bad by your bed.

Storing it in the bag will help the herbs retain their freshness for a longer period of time.



DREAM PILLOWS

Combine together in a bowl:

1 cup mugwort 1/2 cup rose petals 1/2 cup German chamomile

1/2 cup of sweet hops 1/3 cup lavender buds 1/3 cup catnip crushed

1/4 cup peppermint

Mix the ingredients together make cloth bags from a 5x12 inch piece of material fill

cloth bags with your mixture sew the top of the bag shut and sweet dreams!



A SPELL FOR PEACEFUL SLEEP

These are hung by your bed to encourage a restful sleep and sweet dreams.

10 Cardamon pods 1 tsp. Salt 15 cloves

1/2oz peppermint 1/2 oz rosemary dried peel of 1 lemon

Light a white and pink candle, place them on your work area (kitchen table, counter top).

Crush the cloves, cardamon and salt to a fine powder. Blend with the herbs and put in bags.

As you are making the bags concentrate on peaceful memories and beautiful thoughts.

When you hang the bags by your bed say out loud:

Sleep be with me Peaceful sleep Restful sleep

Let my mind be eased Let my body be calmed

Wings of darkness Let the sight of night and dream

be clear, be quiet Let my troubles drift away and let me dream



STOP NIGHTMARES

Items required:

- scarf (white or cream colors work best) 4 cloves pinch of basil pinch of ground sage

- lavender or vanilla oil (whatever you find more soothing) black marker white ribbon

Lay the scarf out. You will be putting spices into it.

Place the spices (ground sage, 4 cloves, basil) into the scarf and add 2 drops of oil.

Gather the scarf at the top (like a moneybag) and tie it with the ribbon.

On the outside of the scarf draw the nightmare that plagues you (e.g. spiders, falling, whatever).

Place the scarf under your pillow and sleep with it there.



TO GIVE SOMEONE A DREAM

You need: -- A dish of earth a cup or cauldron of water a candle

(check color correspondences for whatever kind of dream you will be sending)

and some incense (any kind, this is just to symbolize air).

If you have an altar it should go in the middle of wherever you are placing these objects.

Put the earth to the North the incense to the East the fire to the South and the water to the West.

Then sit in the middle by your altar or just in the middle.

Visualize the dream you wish to give and after you're done visualizing say this:

"Lord and Lady I ask of thee

Give me the ability to send forth this dream

Across the Earth or water's bound

Whether he/she be in the sky or on the ground

By the powers of fire to let it shine bright

By the powers of earth and air to send it tonight

By the powers of water to sweep within dream's door

And by the powers of 3 shall _____ remember it evermore

Sleep in the knowledge the dream will be projected to the person you have visualized.

Be sure to go through every detail of what you wish to send.



A SPELL FOR PROPHETIC DREAMS

Before You Begin: Be Careful This is a rather simple spell, but you are "playing with fire"

before bedtime. Make sure you have extinguished all burning things before you cross

into slumber. Sprinkle some Jasmine on your pillow, and make sure you have a dream-journal

or the like at your bedside to record your dreams in, and brew a cup of mugwort tea.

(NOTE: mugwort is unhealthy in large doses, so go easy, and consult an Herbal Reference

book if you're worried. Light blue candles on your altar.

If you want to gain insight into your passions or your loves, burn Damiana as well.

Watch the smoke as it coils, and allow it to carry you off into the trance-like state that you

spend most of the day avoiding. Say whatever comes to mind, appealing to the goddess

or god of your choice to guide your dreams. I usually say something like:

Blessed be the Lord and Lady, For they created the world, The earth to hold,

The sun to warm, The moon to guide, The spirit to dream.

Take sips of the mugwort tea as you repeat the words, gaze into the smoke,

and when you feel yourself just about to "cross the line" blow out the candle(s) and say:

"So mote it be." Go to sleep. Dream away. Just remember, you don't always get to hear what you'd like.



TO HAVE DREAMS OF THE DECEASED

1 white candle A picture of the deceased A pentagram

Light the white candle and stare at the flame for a few minutes.

Then put the picture at eye level and say:

You are gone forever, But through this spell, My dreams to which you will come.

Place the picture under your pillow.

Let the candle burn to a stub, blow it out, and place it under your pillow also.

Sleep with them under your pillow for three nights to receive the dream you want.



SPELL TO DREAM OF THE FUTURE

Dream divination is the power to see the future and enhance clairvoyance through dreaming.

To foresee an event in the future through a dream, try this powerful dream ritual.

Decide what subject your prophetic/psychic dream will be about:

Does it involve you, or someone else?

What is the subject you need information on? (Money, love, etc.)

How far or near in the future do you wish to see?

Do you have a specific question to ask, or just a general topic?

How do you want the question answered- by a guide, symbols, emotions, etc.?

Once you are sure you know what exactly the prophetic dream should be able, you

can gather your items and prepare your working. Lay out a square of pale blue cloth.

In the middle, places a mixture of ash leaves, bay leaves, cinquefoil, heliotrope, holly,

jasmine flowers, marigold flowers, mimosa, mugwort, onion, and/or yarrow (however

many you can find). Bring the corners towards the middle and tie it all together like a

small bag with a string, ribbon, or piece of yarn.

Then, on a white piece of paper, briefly explain what you need to see in the dream,

using the guideline above to tell the main ideas/questions you need prophecies about.

Place the herbal bag and the note beneath your pillow, and make sure you record your

dream in a notebook or journal as soon as you awake, so you do not forget it.

Use what you learn to prepare you for the future.



TO GAIN A PROPHETIC DREAM OF ONE'S FUTURE LOVE

Recite the following magical incantation as you pluck a sprig of the mystical ash tree:

"Ashen Tree, Ashen Tree, I pluck thee.

This night my true love for to see"

Place the sprig under your pillow when the moon is full and your future

lover or spouse will appear before you in a dream.



THE DREAM SPELL

This spell is to cause you to dream of the face of the man (or woman) you will spend your life with.

You may or may not know this person currently.

Do not be surprised if it is not the person you expected.

If your romantic notions happen to blossom in midsummer, you might consider the following:

On July 22, St. Magdalene's Eve, prepare a bath.

In the water sprinkle lavender and rose petals and as in the Self-Blessing, you must envision

yourself cleansing not only your body, but also your spirit.

After you bathe, prepare for bed and say these words:

Mother of All, Habondia, look favorably upon my quest,

Bring to me a vision true, my lover's face at your behest.

After you have said the incantation, place a sachet under your pillow with lavender and

hypericum (St. John's Wort). Before you go to sleep pour a small glass of wine and just as

you do in the full moon rite, say these words:

To You Mother, I pour this libation (pour a few drops on the floor), and drink this toast.

Drink the rest of the wine.

Use your consecrated chalice or consecrate a new cup just for this purpose.

Lay your head down and dream of your true love--it may not be who you thought!



ST AGNES LOVE SPELL

Jan 20th Love spell, but is harming none.

This one is supposedly to show the caster their true love.

Needed: pink candle (put sandalwood on it)

Before bed on Jan 20th do this spell. Hold mirror up to your face and say:

"Dear St. Agnes sweet and fair I call upon thee with humble prayer

with clarity I wish to see the face of my true love to be.

Tonight let him be dream revealed, with a kiss this rhyme be sealed.

So mote it be." Kiss mirror put mirror under pillow, (glass side up) Thank St. Agnes

Then go to sleep with an open mind.



SOULMATE DREAM SPELL

What you need: 1 red candle, an altar with a pentagram upon it

Turn out the lights and place the candle at the middle of the pentagram, sit cross legged

in front of the altar, then say:

"Let me dream a bright dream with my soulmate send him/her to me now.

I wish to see him/her this night. So mote it be!"

The more times you say it the more power your spell gains. Another spell you can do is go

outside when it is a full moon out look at the moon and braid your hair as you do, then go

to sleep and dream of them.



MAKING AN ENCHANTED DREAM PILLOW

Dream pillows have been around for centuries.

They are filled with herbs and scents that enable the user to sleep peacefully.

I am a very lucid dreamer and get most of my wisdom and insight during dream time.

I have friends who complain that they can never remember their dreams, and have

asked me on many occasion if there is anything I can recommend. With that need in mind,

I have come up with a twist on the dream pillow. Why not include magical herbs, stones,

or oils to affect the dream-state? Here's what I've come up with: Constructing the pillow:

Be sure that the herbs you use have a strong scent. Try to incorporate no more than

two herbs within a pillow.

You will need 1 yard of natural fabric that has a looser weave. This will make 4 to 6 pillows,

depending on the size (if you don't use them all yourself, they make great gifts).

Cut the fabric into squares. Take two pieces of the fabric, and sew them together on three sides.

Turn the fabric inside out so that the loose stitching is on the inside.

Stuff in the herbs and/or stones through the open side and stitch them in.

The pillow will be placed inside your regular pillowcase when you sleep.

Herbs and Stones to Use:

To remember your dreams: Herbs: Mugwort, bay, rosemary, lavender,

catnip (flowers of these herbs is best).

Stones: Adventurine, Celestite, Amethyst, and Fluorite.

To guard against nightmares and spiritual evil:

Herbs: Rosemary, valerian, frankincense, and lemon balm.

Stones: Onyx, Obsidian, Moldavite, and Turquoise.

For more lucid or vivid dreams:

Herbs: Flowers of Mugwort, mint, lavender.

Stones: Rudilated Quartz Crystal, Aquamarine, Tiger-eye, and Carnelian.

For dreams of love or romance:

Herbs: Flowers of roses, yarrow, lavender, crepe myrtle, violets, dill, coriander, and basil.

Garnet: Ruby, Garnet, Rose Quartz, and Red Jasper.

For dreams of peace and guidance: Herbs: Leaves of sage, sassafras, mullein,

pine needles, and chamomile flowers.

Stones: Amethyst, Celestite, Opal, and Moonstone.

If you want to add a little punch to your enchanted pillows, magically charge them

under a waxing or full moon, and do it on the day or hour appropriate to the pillow's purpose.



PEACEFUL SLEEP TEA

Bring equal parts of chamomile flowers, lemon rind and mint leaves to boil in water for

3-5 minutes (depending on the strength).

Drink one cup before bedtime. It works wonders!



SPELL TO AID SLEEP

Light a blue candle (Carve a rune in the candle that stands for sleep).

Light a stick of incense (I use Cedar/Sage--but you use whatever feels right).

Soft/Instrumental/Relaxing Sounds Say:

By this candle I do sleep; Hidden from the day, in the night so deep.

O Lady Moon, guide my dreams, Cover me with your beautiful beams.

As the candle flame dies; Please close my eyes.

Allow me to wake in the warmth of your lover The Sun. Make my insomnia come undone.

(Repeat while the candle is burning) Use A Tea-Light candle (so the house doesn't burn down)
