A storm brews overhead. I play music that removes obstacles and call to the spirits who protect and guide me. I smudge the room with rosemary. By candlelight, I trace the ægishjálmr in cascarilla powder within a copper vessel. On torn parchment I scribe my spell with the blood of a dragon. On one side I place a second ægishjálmr, on the reverse I cross my name over his four times. I anoint the sigil and fold it deiseal and charge it to protect. I add agrimony, rue, bay leaves, mint, red pepper flakes, and his hair and blood. I fold all this together in aluminum foil and form a small sachet.
The storm picks up. It is pouring rain. Lightning flashes outside the window and thunder shakes the house. I spit on a white candle and carve the word ‘PROTECTION’ on it’s side. I anoint it with oil. I set the candle in a silver holder and place it on top of the sachet in the center of the copper vessel. I light the flame. I feed it smoke and burn more rosemary. I call to my spirits. I cry. I release. I beg for their help.
The storm rages violently directly over me traveling towards him. Two black cats circle me. Spirits come. Energy flows. Kundalini rises. My spine tingles. My chakras spin and my aura glows. Then the storm calms and the candle burns out.
I use old vinegar jugs to store water for my plants on the patio since the faucet is on the other side of the house. This makes it infinitely easier for me to water them and allows the chlorine in the water to dissipate. I realized the last time I watered that this was an excellent opportunity to infuse a little magic into my gardening. Once I saw the new moon waxing in the evening sky I knew it was time to work. I enchanted a couple of moss agate’s and created a sigil and set them to the task of helping my plants grow strong and healthy.I also noticed that I was running low on lip balm, body powder, and air freshener. These are not things I buy from the store, these are my personal homemade products. I have a lot of sensitivities and many products I have to make myself although I enjoy the creation of them as well. My air freshener and body powder are simple little concoctions. Baking soda and cornstarch with a little essential oil for scent is all I use for my powder, while water and essential oil makes up the floral water that I use as an air freshener.
