Ritual for Banishing Depression
I found this spell particularly helpful when I suffered from clinical depression. I was about to kill myself, but I decided to use this spell and it made me feel lots better.
You will need:
Light candles---"Dress" the candles with the oils, working base to tip, (away from you) for the banishing candle and tip to base (towards you) for the invoking candle and the Goddess candles. Visualize the intent, banishing depression when handling the banishing candle, and invoking joy and self-love while "dressing" the Goddess and invoking candles. Light only the Goddess candles at this time.
Purify---Start the charcoal block and give it time to heat up. Sprinkle loose herbs of sage, cedar, rosemary or pine on the hot coal and use the smoke for purifing. Visualize the intent of the ritual, at this point visualize banishing depression and emotional pain, while smudging with the smoke. Then light the black candle from the Goddess candle.
Cast circle/invoke a Crone Goddess or Goddesses to help in banishing, and a Goddess of gentleness and peace for the invoking part of the ritual. Try Kali the Destroyer or Hecate for banishing, and Kwan Yin for gentleness and invoking. Use Goddesses for the five elements or these two aspects only, or whatever feels right. do a full casting and invoking to make the circle, or as informal invitation to the aspects and elements.
Invocation---Dear mothers of wisdom and grace, I invite you here to ask your help. I refuse my depression and choose to banish it, and ask instead for joy and peace of mind. Help me in my work tonight, Kali and Kwan Yin.
Body of ritual----Focus on the flame of the black candle, thinking of all the things that need changing. Remember fully all the reasons for depression and pain, acknowledge all your anger, all your rage, and all your fear. Dwell on every hurt, every feeling, every negativity. When you have focused them all onto the candle, shout "NO!" and blow the candle out in a decisive, quick motion. Watch the smoke rise from the extinguished candle, and feel all the negativity dissolving in the rising air. Breathe the banishing incense for awhile.
Now lighting the invoking candle. Do it from the Goddess candle, and sprinkle rose incense on the charcoal block. Let the light of the pink candle and the fragrance of the rose incense fill you as you watch and breathe them. Breathe the energies in deeply, remembering the qualities of Kwan Yin, or other Goddess'ess of mercy invoked in the ritual. Ask Kwan Yin for her presence and help.
Focus on the candle flame and think of all the good things in your life. Refill each banished item and negativity with some positive attribute; where there was pain before, replace it with love. For every wrong remember something to give thanks for; for every pain remember something joyfull. Remember your accomplishments in life, how good a woman you really are. Do a series of affirmations, "I am" or "I have", to list your good qualities and the qualities you choose to become or gain. Continue stating the positives and affirmations untill you feel filled with pink light and the scent of roses.
Self-blessing---Put on the rose quartz pendant or hold the rose quartz stone. Do the self-blessing ritual slowly and lovingly, anointing your chakras with the rose oil. Breathe the scent deeply and draw it into your body, emotions, mind and spirit.
Thank Kwan Yin for your joy and Kali for her energy of change.
Allow the pink candle to burn out itself, or extinguish and relight it nightly untill at least the next Full Moon. Do affirmations nightly with the flame. Continue burning pink candles for as long as needed to remind you of new joy and positivity. Repeat the ritual on the next wanning moon if needed; it will be needed less each time you do it. Each time, bury the remains of the black candle in the earth, along with the ashes from the incense; visualize your pain being buried and recycled with them. Repeat the self-blessing at any time, and do it often, at least every New and Full Moon. Continue wearing the rose quartz pendant, or carry a piece of the stone with you at all times.
The best day to do this is a Saturday.
All Heal Spell
An easy to do All Heal Spell ... to aid in the healing of all conditions, or to soothe the symptoms of serious illness. I used this to rid the recur of my depression and whenever I get a bad case of strep.
Bless or empower the water as you see fit... I just pray to the God and Goddess and ask them to aid me in my healing, then I send as much personal energy as I can into the water. Lie upon the bare earth (if not possible, floor is OK). Have each hand in a separate bowl of warm water, arms stretched out to the sides.
Visualise roots sprouting from the base of your spine, going down into the earth. Breath deeply, and with each deep, slow inhalation, feel the roots burrow deeper into the earth. see a bright light at the center...see your roots penetrate it... now with each slow, deep breath, draw up the energy from this light into you.
See two streams of light begin to come from the sky, one stream into each bowl...feel the love of the God fill the bowl to your left, feel the love of the Goddess fill the bowl to the right.
Draw this love from the bows into your body through your hands. Collect the love energy from the bows and the energy from the earth into your heart, where your most personal energy is kept. Build all the energy here...until you can contain it no more.
When you can no longer contain the energy in your heart, release the energy to flood your entire body, and shout as loud as you can "HEAL ME!!!" at the same time as the release.
Continue to draw the energy for a while, letting it flow through your body, and spilling onto the ground...relax, and enjoy the peace that will settle over you.
After you have relaxed for a while, draw up your roots into your body, remove your hands from the water, and sit up. Take a sip from the bowl to your left, and thank the God for his love, then spill it at the base of a tree. Then take a sip from the bowl at your right, and thank the goddess for her love, then spill it upon the same tree. In the future, care for this tree...it has been blessed by the love of the gods (the water) and it will aid you in your health.
Sinus Infection and Headache remedy
As a sufferer of sinus infections, I tend to get sinus headaches. I've found that placing an amethyst at my temple and visualizing the negative energy flowing out into the crystal actually works. At least most of the time.
This method can also be adapted for almost any healing efforts.
A note about migraines. Since my cousin [she's 31] has sworn off chocolate, she hardly gets them at all.
AIDS ritual from Moon Web
A friend has shown a newsletter to me and it claims that this is a good way to help destroy barriers and increase positive elements that will help overcome AIDS.
Invocations to Athena, Hermes, and/or Brigid may be done.
Those gathered will be divided into five groups. One will be assigned to each of the elements with one group in the center. Each group may be led by a particular coven or group of coven leaders. The center (altar) group will present each elemental group with the obstacle to overcome and later accept the positive "goal". We have divided the elements this way:
Air - Knowledge/Ignorance Fire - Committment/Indifference Earth - Funding/Red Tape Water - Empathy/Hostility
When confronted with the obstacles the small groups will be wrapped with crepe paper by the center group. We suggest the spectral colors:
Air - Purple Fire - Green Earth - Red Water - Orange
The groups break their bonds, overcoming the obstacle. When all four are done, each quarter group presents the center group with a candle symbolizing the positive quality. They are all placed on the altar and tied with silver thread. As they burn, the group can dance to raise energy. Afterwards, all are given candles charged during the ritual that were on or under the altar to take home and spread the light. Cakes and Wine/Libations can follow.
All present will be divided into five groups. In the east - air. In the south - fire. In the west - water. In the north - earth. In the center are the drama facilitators. Each group is "lead" by an experienced person.
Water, salt are consecrated. Circle is drawn with wand. Circle is blessed with water and incense.
Invocation to Athena, Hermes and Brigid as to purpose of rite.
Air group speaks INTELLIGENTLY on AIDS. Statements like "The HIV virus is very fragile and is only passed through intimate contact." They are all bound with PURPLE crepe paper. They begin to make IGNORANT statements like '"you can catch AIDS from shaking hands". They are temporarily defeated by the IGNORANCE of the crepe paper. Then they rally and tear apart their bonds.
Fire group speaks about dedication to finding a cure for AIDS, expressing COMMITMENT. They are bound with GREEN crepe paper. They speak with INDIFFERENCE. They slowly overcome and break free of their bonds.
The Water group talks about EMPATHY. They are bound with ORANGE crepe paper. They speak of HOSTILITY. They break free.
The Earth group talks about adequate FUNDING. They are bound with RED crepe paper. They become tangled in RED TAPE. They overcome the challenge.
Each group charges a taper with their positive element. The tapers are placed on the altar and bound with silver thread. They are lit and all dance around in a single or double circle and send energy out to spread our will. Extra candles on the altar are also charged.
Juice and cookies are blessed and shared. All are given candles to take home to spread the light.
The deities are thanked, and the circle is closed.
Heal the Rain Forest
Cast a circle
Invoke elements by calling upon them in protective aspects (for example, you might invoke Watchfires or Beacons in the South).
Chant the names of the Earth Goddess, beginning with your personal favorites, then naming as many as you can think of.
Take a piece of green string. Begin to tie knots in it, while chanting:
Tying the Cord, Renewing the Earth;
(The knots may be simple or elaborate, but leave enough string to tie together at the end.) As you chant, see the world as a network of connected systems. Breathe the air that comes from the jungles of South America. Feel the living fire of an ocelot's power. Taste the rain on the leaves at the tops of the trees. Feel the delicate structure of the soil at the forest floor.)
Tie the cord together in a loop; hold it up, strung around your two hands, and begin chanting:
We are the Flow and we are the Ebb;
As you chant, see yourself standing guard over the borders of the rainforest. See yourself with others, protecting rainforest as you would protect yourself, because that's what you're doing.
Bury the cord in a container of earth. Earth the power; thank the Deities and elements; open the circle. Later bury the cord in the forest if possible.
(If circumstances make the above impossible):
Sit quietly and see: the network of ecosystems that make up the world; the rainforests thriving; plants and animals breeding; the Earth, green and filled with life; yourself, standing guard. Breathe, and know that the air comes from the sea and the jungles of Brazil. Drink and know that the water has been around the world, and circulates through you as it does through the air, land, and sea. Stand up and stretch; the strength of your body is the Earth's strength.
Facilitators give each participant a slip of paper containing the name of an Earth Goddess and a Nature God.
Facilitators invoke elements, stressing protective/preservative aspects of each one and ending with "Into this circle I call the Element Air! (Fire, Water, Earth.)" After each such invocation, a dancer or dancers representing the particular element come into the circle from outside and do an elemental dance.
A facilitator says: "We now call upon the Earth Goddess by her many names!" Participants call out the Goddess name on their slip of paper, then any other Goddess names they wish. This ends on a signal from the drums.
A facilitator says: "We now call upon the God of Nature by his many Names!"
The God is invoked in the same fashion as the Goddess, ending with a drum signal.
The elemental dancers go to the quarters and begin passing out pieces of green string, while a facilitator explains that the condition of the rainforests affects us all, that all things are connected, and that the worldwide climate is changed every time another acre of rainforest is lost. S/he explains that these sections of cord represent parts of the Life Circle of Earth, and that they must be joined to protect her.
When the above speech has been made and all the cords have been passed out, a facilitator ties the first knot, saying that tying the cord is renewing the Earth, that we are her children, bringing her rebirth. This is the signal to begin the chant:
Tying the Cord, Renewing the Earth;
Clockwise around the circle, one by one, each cord is tied to the next. When the circle is complete, the elemental dancers go to the quarters and hold the cord aloft (participants should not let go yet). The chant continues until the facilitators begin a second chant:
We are the Flow and we are the Ebb;
(Since this is to the same tune, the transition should be easy and seamless.) When this chant begins, the elemental dancers begin to gather in the cord, gently pulling it away from the participants, who gently release it. The elementals bury the cord in a container of earth in the center of the circle, then return to the outside to lead a spiral dance in to the center and back out (once) as the chant continues. When the participants are standing in a circle once more, the chant builds to a cone of power and fires.
The Deities and Elements are thanked, the power is earthed, the circle opened, hugs exchanged. Later bury the cord in the woods.
Spell to heal a simple cold:

Please consult a licensed healthcare physician before changing your health care program. My apologies for the above, it is legally necessary, so I don't get sued when someone gets pneumonia because they took this bath instead of seeing a doctor, when they should have. This bath is to cure congestion caused by a simple cold. If you have fluid in your lungs, or a persistent cold, see a qualified, licensed healer/physician. Please. Preparations Have a blue candle, and blue healing bath salts. You may purchase these from a store, or make them yourself.

Add to this, 1 part Sandalwood Oil 2 parts Eucalyptus Oil 3 parts Rosemary Add enough of the oils to smell a scent, without add so much that it is an overpowering odor. Then add enough blue food coloring to turn the salts a dark blue. The salts will clump a bit. This is natural, do not worry. At your altar, light a blue candle. Send healing energies into the salts. Envision yourself whole and healthy. Do this for 3 to 15 minutes. Ritual Fill tub with water and add two or three tablespoons of the salts. Step into tub, and feel your sickness being released into the water. Stay in the water as long as comfortable, or until the water is cool. Drain the tub and watch your sickness go down the drain.

World healing meditation: By John Randolph Price
In the beginning
In the beginning God
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And God said Let there be light; and there was light.
Now is the time of the new beginning.
I am a co-creator with God, and it is a new Heaven that comes.
as the God Will of God is expressed on Earth through me.
It the Kingdom of Light, Love, Peace, and Understanding.
And I am doing my part to reveal its Reality.
I begin with me.
I am a living Soul and the Spirit of God dwells in me, as me.
I and the Father are one, and all that the Father has is mine.
In Truth, I am the Christ in God.
What is true of me is true of everyone, for God is all and all is God.
I see only the Spirit of God in every Soul.
And to every man woman and child on Earth I say: I love you, for you are me.
You are my Holy Self! I now open my heart.
and let the pure essence of Unconditional Love pour out.
I see it as a Golden Light radiating from the center of my being.
and I feel its Divine Vibration in and through me, above and below me.
I am one with the Light. I am filled with the Light. I am illumined by the Light.
I am the Light of the world.
With purpose of mind, I sends forth the Light.
I let the radiance go before me to join the other Lights.
I know this is happening all over the world at this moment.
I see the merging Lights.
There is now one Light.
We are the Light of the world.
The one Light of Love, Peace, and Understanding is moving.
It flows across the face of the Earth, touching and illuminating every soul in the shadow of the illusion. And where there was darkness, there is now the Light of Reality.
And the Radiance grows, permeating, saturating every form of life.
There is only the vibration of one Perfect Life now.
All the kingdoms of the Earth respond, and the Planet is alive with Light and Love.
There is total Oneness, and in this Oneness we speak the Word.
Let the sense of separation be dissolved.
Let mankind be returned to Godkind.
Let peace come forth in every mind.
Let Love flow forth from every heart.
Let forgiveness reign in every soul.
Let understanding be the common bond.
And now from the Light of the world.
the One Presence and Power of the Universe responds.
The Activity of God is healing and harmonizing Planet Earth.
Omnipotence is made manifest.
I am seeing the salvation of the planet before my very eyes.
as all false beliefs and error patterns are dissolved.
The sense of separation is no more; the healing has taken place, and the world is restored to sanity.
This is the beginning of Peace on Earth and Good Will toward all, as Love flows forth from every heart, forgiveness reigns in every soul, and all hearts and minds are one in perfect understanding. It is done. And it is so.
A Healing Myth By "Nihasa" |---------------------------------------------------------------| | This story can have a powerful healing effect when read out | | loud (or recorded and then played) to someone suffering from | | a phobia or other effect of childhood trauma. While names, | | settings, and style can be varied to suit individual tastes, | | the sequence which the apprentice describes, the sequence | | the princess goes through, and the vagueness of the "bad | | thing" descriptions should remain unchanged and no element | | of the story should be left out. | |---------------------------------------------------------------| Once, in another time and another place, a kingdom of magic and beauty knew a time of peace. No armies threatened its boarders, no bandits plundered its trade routes, no plagues sickened its people. Yet even in such peaceful times, bad things could happen: accidents, misunderstandings, even good people doing bad things. The third daughter of the king was a bright and cheerful sort. She wasn't the strongest or the prettiest of the royal princesses, but she did have the nicest wings of anyone her age. She loved to fly around the countryside and explore the groves and meadows she found...they were always full of surprises. One day she found a particularly pretty grove, with a pond glistening in a little clearing in the middle. As she went in for a closer look, she saw images start to form. She saw her own reflection, and as she lightly touched the ground she saw that her reflection was watching reflections of her own...dim watery reflections from her past. "So you can see the pictures." The voice from among the trees made her jump. "Don't worry," continued the young man as he stepped out from among the trees, "nobody else can see the same images, Princess. It's part of the magic." "How...?" she asked, looking him up and down. He was a young man, no older than the princess herself, dressed in the rough tunic of a wizard's apprentice. "Who are you? How did you know who I am, what I saw?" "I am apprenticed to the Court Wizard. Everybody knows who you are, Princess...and besides, I have seen you at the palace when I have been there with my master." He paused, glancing at the ground and lowering his voice. "As to the images...well, at one time I had need of their magic." "When I entered the Wizard's service, I had a great and secret fear. Something...bad...happened to me when I was younger. It hurt to even think about, and after time I didn't think about it much. But ever since that time, I had lived with the fear. When my master learned of this, he taught me the magic of this pool and its stream." "The pool reflects images from your mind...scenes from your past, dreams of the future, even fantasies of the present. The stream flows like time itself, upstream into the past, and downstream into the future. If I followed the ritual he described, these magics could wash clean the fear." She made a face. "I suppose this ritual involves deep magics usable only by Wizards?" "Not really. All the magic is in the waters, and anyone can use the ritual. Even a lowly apprentice." He grinned. "It's pretty simple. After he told me about it, he brought me here and then stood back by the trees. He said that he would answer any questions I had but otherwise I was on my own." "I stood where I could see my reflection in the pool, and then thought about my fear. As I thought, my reflection watched a reflection of my thoughts...like a stage where dimly lit actors played out the scene against a colorless backdrop. I looked up and saw that I was still here, in the glade. I looked back at the water, holding on to a small part of the special feeling of fear it had given me. As I turned and looked back upstream, I saw more images...each earlier than the last. I relaxed and let the feeling guide me back to the earliest image. When I had that, I turned back to the pool and found my reflection watching the same colorless players in their dim reflection of the memory. As my reflection watched, the image went from a time shortly before the bad thing happened, through the whole thing, and on to a time when it was all over. When it passed the ending that way, it stopped...like a drawing. Then the drawing faded away, and I was just looking at my reflection. The Wizard had told me that if I stepped into that last part of the image, it would run very quickly backwards, with full color and sound and me living backwards through it all...all the way through to the part before the beginning. It sounded very strange. As I looked at my reflection again, it was watching the image go forward again in its dim, colorless way. When it reached the drawing at the end, I stepped into the image and was plunged into a world going backwards! It went clear through to before the beginning in less than a second, then stopped. Startled, I let the water carry me downstream, through all that had happened since, with the fear gone and the memory unable to hurt me. When I reached the here-and-now, I got out and just stood there, knowing that the fear would trouble me no more." He stopped, and suddenly seemed to remember where he was, and who he was talking to. "That was over a year ago, and the fear is still gone. The Wizard says it is gone for good." She thought for a moment. "So all there is to this ritual is think of the problem until your reflection sees it, follow a part of the feeling upstream to my earliest memory of it, wait for my reflection to see it all the way through, step into the ending, and live it backwards quickly? What kind of magic is that?" He thought for a minute, shrugged, and said "Effective? If you wish, I will withdraw to the trees while you try it." "What makes you think that I NEED it?" "Because the images only come to those who do." His voice faded to an embarrassed silence as he realized what he had said. "I'll go now." "Yes, do." She said absently, already thinking. Then: "But not too far, in case I need you." She was remembering an incident a few days back which had set off her special fear, and just as the apprentice had described, her reflection in the pool was watching a dim and watery scene of the memory. Startled, she looked up again. Yes, she was in the clearing, with the trees all around and the apprentice all but lost among the closer ones. She could still feel a part of that fear, so she kept that feeling while she looked back up stream at all the images from the past that the feeling had touched...until she found the earliest of them all. She brought that memory back to the pool and released it as her reflection started to watch it unfold in its dim and watery way. Her reflection seemed to have a life of its own as it watched the pale scene start before anything happened, run through the bad parts, and then pause at a time when it was all over. She watched her reflection shift as she prepared for what she would do. Her reflection settled as it watched the scene unfold again. The dim scene passed through the beginning, through the bad time and on past again. When it stopped, she jumped in to it. Suddenly, she was there again: back where and when it had happened. Everything was moving backwards, and in a flash she had lived backwards through it and past the beginning. Shocked, she let the water carry her down stream, forward through all the rest of her yesterdays without the bad times for company. When she got to today, she stood up. There she was...standing, dripping in a stream in the clearing. She looked around for the apprentice, half expecting him to be laughing at the soggy mess she must be. He was there, by the trees...not laughing, just smiling in an understanding way. In the years that followed, they became friends. Although they went their separate ways...he, as wizard to one of the King's high lords and she as wife to a neighboring prince... they valued that friendship to the end of their days. And from that time on, neither was ever again troubled by their great fears. ......... To Heal a Friendship Shortly after an argument, buy a greeting card which closely expresses what you would like to say to your friend. Rub the greeting card with lavender leaves before you give it to them or mail it to ensure that it is well recieved.
To Help Heal Depression Light a green candle. As you gaze into the candle for a few moments, try to relax as much as you can and clear all thoughts from your mind. Visualize the Mother Goddess sitting in front of you. Listen for a moemnt to hear if she has any words of encouragement for you. Visualize her next hugging your and holding you as you rock gently back and forth from side to side easing away your pain and sorrow. Another good idea, if you suffer from cronic depression is to see a therapist of some sort. There may be another way to deal with your problems, and sometimes just talking about it helps too.
