How To Use Runes in Spells, Magic and Divination

Do you know how to use runes in spells, magic and divination? Most of us who know about magic know a little bit about the runes and at least are familiar with them or may have even have worked with them. For those of you who have not yet been introduced to their magic, runes are usually viewed as a divination tool like the tarot but the magic of the runes does not stop there.

This article is going to give you an amazing, phenomenal, beautiful way to start working with the runes, even if you have had no experience with them. You don’t have to memorize anything. You don’t have to have a long deep relationship with runes to begin your journey, though this technique I’ll teach you doesn’t prevent that from happening. But this is a way to work with the runes even if you aren’t using them as a divination tool yet.

I will start out by saying that I am by no means an expert on the runes. But I do love them and I do love working with them. I love them so much that I have a rune tattooed on each wrist. The two runes I picked are Wunjo and Dagaz. Wunjo means joy, and Dagaz means breakthrough and awakening. So, these are the things I want to bring into my environment. They symbolize what I want to bring into my practice. Happiness, and awakening, and breakthroughs. Who wouldn’t want that? I sure do.

Getting runes tattooed is not a divination practice, but it is a way of bringing the runes into your magic. Divination is only the tip of the iceburg when it comes to what you can do with runes.

The Different Types of Runes

Let’s take a look at the history of the runes. First of all, runes date back to about 100 ACE. That’s the first evidence of runes that we see in our archeological findings. Germanic people, including Norse Vikings, developed this written alphabet. You may have heard the terms Elder Futhark or Younger Futhark. The alphabet of the runes is known as a Futhark, which is the first six letters of the rune alphabet. Much like how the word alphabet contains alpha and beta, The Futhark is the name of the alphabet. And it’s named for those first six letters of the Norse writing system.

Because they are so old, we know very little about The Elder Futhark. The Elder Futhark has 24 characters and was predominantly used from about 100 ACE to 700 ACE. The Elder Futhark is what is most often seen in rune sets. These sets contains 24 runes, or sometimes 25 when a blank one is in the set.

The Younger Futhark has only 16 characters. The Norse people condensed the alphabet down to these characters and abandoned the rest. And this was in use from around 700 ACE, up until the Middle Ages, 1200 ACE.

Now, there is also another Futhark, it’s called the Anglo-Saxon Runes, which have 33 characters in it. They were used mostly in England. However, when we are thinking of rune divination sets, we’re almost exclusively thinking of the Elder Futhark.

Getting to Know The Elder Futhark

While the runes are an amazing divination tool, they were also a useable alphabet. Give that some thought when working with them. Tarot is an amazing divination tool, but isn’t an alphabet. We don’t really use tarot in many other contexts. We might use the tarot for meditation or a spell, but it doesn’t have that quality of being a written alphabet. This makes the runes very special.

The runes, pop up all over these archaeological finds around England, Scandinavian countries, and beyond. These runes would be carved on stones, for example. Oftentimes they would show up on memorial stones for people that had passed on. We also see them on bone, antler, wood, and even on metal!

We can find the evidence of these letters all over the place, and they are quite common. But they are more than an alphabet. Each of these letters has a very specific and special magical meaning. Understanding their magical meanings is easier when you know the legends that the Norse people had about the runes. So, I’m going to tell you the legend of the runes. The mythology of how the runes were discovered shows you how powerful people considered these amazing, magical tools.

The Story of Odin

So, this is the story of Odin and the runes. Odin is the Norse god who is the leader of all the gods. That group of gods and goddesses is called The Æsir, and he was their leader. One of his great qualities was that he was always seeking to have more wisdom. He was always on the hunt for more knowledge. He understood very deeply that knowledge is power. He had many adventures in his stories where he’s trying to find out something or trying to discover something – seeking a magical skill or special knowledge.

Odin was willing to sacrifice for this wisdom and knowledge. In fact, one of the attributes of Odin was that he had one eye. His missing eye was plucked out in exchange for a piece of wisdom. So he had a strong understanding of sacrificing to gain magical wisdom and knowledge.

Yggdrasil: The World Tree

The other thing that you have to know about Norse mythology is the idea of the World Tree. The name of the World Tree in Norse mythology is Yggdrasil. So, Yggdrasil was believed to be this giant tree that held up all the worlds. At the base of the tree was a well, the Well of Urd.

This well was very deep and it’s where the World Tree got its water and nourishment. This enabled it to grow and sprout and protect these worlds. Around the Well of Urd lived the Norns. The Norns were three very mysterious and very powerful women who controlled fate. Not only the fate of the animals and the people, but the fate of the Æsir or the gods themselves. This made the Norns the most powerful beings of all.

Now, one of the ways that they would control fate is by carving runes into Yggdrasil’s trunk. They would carve the runes into the trunk, and then the energy of those runes would go out to wherever they needed to go in that magical tree. To the upper world, the middle world or the lower world. They could control everything with these runes, these mystical shapes. But the shapes were a mystery to everyone. They didn’t understand them. The gods couldn’t decipher them. They didn’t know what the Norns were doing.

Odin Envied the Norns’ Power

Of course, Odin was curious. He watched the Norns and he envied the power that they had to affect the fate of everyone, including the gods and goddesses. So, he decided he needed to know the meaning of the runes.

To get that knowledge, he had to hang himself, some say by the neck, others say by the foot, to get the insights and abilities that the Norns had. He had to pierce himself with his spear and hang from the tree, Yggdrasil, and look into the Well of Urd and the waters below.

We could see this as being a very shamanic act, this act of going between the worlds of the living and the dead. For nine days, Odin hung by his foot between the world of the living and the dead. He wasn’t quite dead yet, but he wasn’t alive. He was in that state of depletion and just hovering there.

Odin’s Sacrifice

He told the other gods, the other Æsir, “Don’t help me, don’t try to rescue me, don’t try to save me, I must go through this extreme trial to be able to understand the runes. My deepest desire is to have this knowledge.” As he stared downward for days and days and days, he called to the runes, he invited them in, and he teetered in that real liminal state, between life and death. As you can imagine, this would be a really out there experience. Anyone who has ever been in that state of one foot in the world of spirit, and one foot in the world of the living knows it is an intense place to be.

So, for nine days and nights, he did this, and on the ninth night, at last, he saw the runes in the depths of the water. Because he had made the sacrifice, the runes showed themselves to him. And Urd revealed, not only the form of the runes but also the secrets that they held. He understood them, he could use them and work with them.

The Hanged Man is Odin

If you’ve ever looked at the tarot deck and seen The Hanged Man card, you’ve seen this story depicted in the image. We see a man with a beautiful radiant halo around his head, but he’s hanging upside down by his foot. That is reminiscent of this story of Odin.

When Odin learned these runes and he understood them, he gained all sorts of abilities such as:

  • Heal wounds
  • Bind his enemies
  • Ruin the weapons of his enemies
  • Wake the dead
  • Win and keep a lover
  • Free himself of constraints
  • Put out fires
  • Expose and banish practitioners of malevolent magic
  • Protect his loved ones in battle

So while the runes are strongly associated with Odin, they are about the Norns. They allow us to tap in to these mysterious, powerful women who held this information and allowed Odin to uncover it through sacrifice. We can access the power of the runes just like Odin did. The runes are the world of Norns, and we can be Odin, making a sacrifice to learn the runes and work with them in our magic.

There are lots of ways that you can work with the runes in your magic. The easiest and simple way to work with them is to get a set of the Elder Futhark and get to know it. You can learn about them, look them up in the little booklet, or get a book about the runes and learn what they mean. You can carry one or two that you want to empower yourself with, or you can place them on an altar. Or you can hold them in your hands and feel for their energy. You can also create a Bind Rune.

What Are Bind Runes?

Bind runes are two or more runes placed together, often used for magical purposes to be used as powerful amulets. Bind runes date from about the 1600s and were first seen in Iceland. You can use bind runes magically by writing them on paper, inscribing them in candles, carving them into wood or stone. There’s so many ways that you can create and make bind runes to bring the essence of the runes to your magic.

Overlay Bind Runes

The first method of creating a bind rune is to overlay runes one on top of the other. Imagine you’re looking at two runes on two individual sheets of sheets of clear plastic and you put them over one another. Together they make a new shape. Spells will use these overlaid bind runes to manifest a reality.

The Bluetooth logo is actually a stacked bind rune. Berkana, that ᛒ shape, represents nurturing, protection, support, and creation. The other rune that we see in there is Hagall from the Younger Futhark, which looks like ᚼ and means hail. So, the ᚼ and the ᛒ stacked one on top of the other and blended together make that Bluetooth logo. That’s one way that we can create a bind rune.

Same-Stave Bind Runes

There’s another way that we can create a bind rune, which is to stack them. Almost like stacking vegetables on a shish kebab. If you hold up that shish kebab skewer, you see all the different vegetables. You can stack a series of runic letters in a specific order along a single access. That’s called a same-stave rune. Stave is a word for staff. So, same-stave runes are like arrows, spears, or sticks. We use them to attack a problem. If you’re trying to conquer something, or aim to be victorious over something, that’s when you might want to use a same-stave rune.

Radial Bind Runes

Now, there’s another kind of rune that we often see in jewelry called a radial rune. These are kind of similar to the stave runes, but they’re several staves sticking out like spokes on a wheel. Each of those might have a rune on the end of it, or a rune in the middle.

Now, these radial runes are useful in defense spells, protection spells, or amulets. When we create these amulets or talismans, this design is both beautiful and powerful.

bindrunes

Make Your Own Bind Rune

If you want to make a bind rune, here are the steps to do it. The first thing to do is to think of your magical goal. What would you like to accomplish and what would you like this bind rune to work on? Once you are clear about your magical goal, then find the rune or runes that best fit your purpose. You might, for example, repeat a rune around the radial rune over and over again. Or you might stack the rune up, but pick the ones that are the best fit for the work you’re doing.

Choose Your Runes

You could choose two, three, four runes, it doesn’t matter. Don’t use the whole Futhark, that would be too much. You don’t want to cloud your intention. Choose a few that match the energy of your goal.

Choose Your Design

Once you pick the runes, start playing around with your design on scratch paper. Remember to stick to the design-style that best matches your intention:

  • Manifestation: Overlay Bind Rune
  • Protection: Radial Bind Rune
  • Attack a Problem: Same-Stave Bind Rune

Choose Your Material

Once you’ve worked out your design on paper , then you can choose your material to work on with this rune. Here are a few examples:

  • Write it on a slip of paper and carry it with you
  • Carve it into wood or stone
  • Carve it into the side of a Beeswax Candle
  • Get a tattoo of it

You don’t even need to make anything to use your bind rune. As long as you know what it looks like, you could trace it in the air or even just visualize it! Do this whenever you need to summon its power.

How to Use Box Spells for Manifestation

Posted on Leave a comment

Post Type: post

pandoras box is an example of a containment spell

The universe wants to hand you a great big gift and it’s all wrapped up in a box. In this article you’ll learn about the magic of boxes, box spells, and more. If you’d like, you can check out this article as a podcast by subscribing to Magic and the Law of Attraction. Or you can check out a video of the podcast at the bottom of this page!

You may know about bottle spells, bag spells, and charm bags. Box spells are their own category of spells and they have a very magical energy.

Key Concepts About Box Spells

There are some key concepts that go along with box spells. Keep these concepts in mind when devising a spell. Once you understand them you can create effective box spells. The first key concept is concealment.

Box Spells Include an Element of Concealment

Box spells have an air of secrecy around them. Have you shaken a gift wrapped box to guess what the present is inside? That concealment is delightful. That concealment also keeps out prying eyes. If you need to keep your magic a secret for some reason, a box spell is a great fit. A box spell is a wonderful way of keeping prying eyes away from what you’re working on magically.

Encapsulation is Key With Box Spells

Box spells also have an element of encapsulation. Think of encapsulation as creating a protective bubble around something: you’re taking something and you’re wrapping it up. When you encapsulate your spell, you’re keeping in what’s meant to be there and keeping out what isn’t. Keep this in mind when crafting your box spells!

Boxes Represent Structure

Another aspect of box spells is structure. Most boxes have four sides. That number four is important in magic. Think of the four seasons. Consider the four directions. Remember the four elements. We see that four show up time and time again. In numerology four represents structure. If you need to do a protection spell you can put something inside the box and symbolically protect it from the outside world.

Or we can put something in a box and protect the outside world from what’s inside. Think about, for example, “Pandora’s Box.” In that legend all the evils of the world were contained in a box. Which leads us into our last key concept, containment.

Containment Magic is Powerful

The last concept may be the most important when talking about box spells, and that is containment. A box spell is a container spell. Like a genie in a bottle, we are keeping something inside so that we can have control over it. It can also be about us holding it together, or having healthy boundaries. The main point of a box spell is that the magic won’t dissipate or diminish. It’s really holding something for the long-term.

How Box Spells Differ From Other Types of Magic

Box spells can be very different from some other kinds of magic. They tend to be about longer term work more than many other spells. Think about a cleansing bath. We do that at the moment we need to cleanse something and then go back to our life until our next cleanse. With a candle spell, we light a candle, we send the energy out there and we give it a big burst of power, like sending off a rocket of desire. But a box spell is for longevity. Something that you want to hold on to and keep the energy going, day after day. Some examples of what topics could be good for a box spell are:

  • Commitment
  • Protection
  • Prosperity
  • Peace in the home
  • Relationships
  • Health
  • Well-being

Different Kinds of Boxes

There are many different types of boxes you can use in your box spell magic. Of course, you can use a little cardboard box or maybe a box that some special jewelry came in. An ornate box could also work great or a regular cardboard box that you would prefer to keep hidden and put away. And, you can also use cigar boxes.

Creating Box Spells With Cigar Boxes

Cigar boxes are amazing. I love working with a cigar box for a box spell for two reasons. First, it’s got room for quite a few things. Second, it’s got that old-time feel. Using a cigar box always reminds me of the 1920s and 1930s, a period of time that I’m in love with.

We can think about that cigar box as giving that old-time flavor. Cigar boxes are pretty sturdy as well and you can use them for many, many years. I have cigar boxes that belonged to my dad. He didn’t smoke cigars, but he used them for decades for storing nuts and bolts in his garage. I have some of those that I keep and they’re precious to me because my dad used them.

Cigar boxes can last a long time, they’re super sturdy, and they have that nice little flap that opens and closes. You can turn a cigar box into an altar or just a place to store magical items. That can be a lovely way to work with them.

Wooden Boxes for box spells in the shape of a heart

Working With Wooden Boxes

Another kind of box you might think about is a wooden box. Now, cigar boxes are often wood boxes but you can get other kinds of wooden boxes. These include treasure chests, engraved boxes, decorated boxes, or boxes with a hinge or lid on it. There are some very beautiful wooden boxes out there that you can work with!

A ceramic box that can be used for spells

Working With Ceramic Boxes

Ceramic boxes can also be perfect for box spells. That’s one that people don’t often think of. So those little trinket boxes, those little china boxes that you get, can be really lovely for a box spell. Best of all they look beautiful when put out and nobody needs to know what’s inside. You put your spell work inside, and it can just look beautiful on a shelf or on an altar, and so on.

Other Types of Boxes for Box Spells

I have seen candles that are actually boxes. Yes, it’s true. There are candles created with a hollow interior and you could put things inside. That combines a candle spell with a box spell, but you could just use that wax box by itself without burning the candle.

Jewelry boxes can also be transformed into spell boxes as well. So you might find one at a junk store or thrift store. You may not want to use it for your jewelry but you can use it for a box spell. If it has a little musical music box in there, then you can add yet another magical element to your spell!

Another super-out-there creative kind of box are edible boxes. You might have seen boxes made from chocolate or sugar. Those are perfect for spells where you wish to sweeten something, for example.

So start to get creative and think about different kind kinds of boxes that you can use for your box spells, not just a cardboard box.

What to Put Inside of Your Box Spell

So once you’ve got the box that you’re going to be working with, we have to think about what we’re going to put in those boxes. There are so many things that you can put into a box. Remember that the box spell has the essence of something that’s going to be long-lasting. So you don’t want to put something in the box that’s going to go bad like food.

When thinking of putting something in a box, the first thing that springs to my mind is a petition paper. You can write out a petition of what it is that you want and what it is that you want the box to do. Petition papers can be as simple as you writing out your wish and putting that paper in the box. That’s it. But you can also get very elaborate with your petition papers.

The Magic Wishing Box Spell

One of my favorite spells is the magic wishing box. I talk about this in Episode One of my Magic and the Law of Attraction podcast, “How Does Magic Work?” At the end of it, I give a recipe for doing a magic wishing box. All the wishing box is, is a box that you’re putting in slips of paper with your wishes on them. These can be petitions, images, pictures or keywords, anything that represents what you want to manifest. That box becomes the place to manifest the things that you want.

Now, you can add more than petition papers. You can add more to it – things like crystals or herbs and roots can go into a magic spell box. Dried herbs, dried roots are the ones that you want to use in this case. You don’t want something getting moldy and rotten in there. So you can put something that’s already dried inside.

You can also add talismans, things like coins or charms. The sky is the limit when it comes to the ideas of things that you can put in your spell box as long as they’re things that will be long-lasting.

So, when we think about a general box spell, what do we do with it? We put our petitions of what we want, add a few crystals, put in a few herbs that support our intention….now, what do we do with it?

treasure chests can be box spells

What To Do with Your Box Spell

The first place that comes to mind for putting a spell box is on an altar. If you have that cute little box, you can put it out on your altar. Your spell is going to marinate and charge up on that altar. The more time you spend working at your altar, the more energy and magical power your spell gets.

You can also keep it somewhere in the home that’s hidden. You might want to put it away in a drawer so that nobody else sees it or knows about it, or you might want to put it in a place where that seems appropriate to the spell.

You might want to have a box spell for abundant business and keep it someplace at work. A box spell for love and attraction could be stored in your bedroom. You can hide it away in a drawer, cupboard, or closet where it is safe from others.

treasure chests can also be box spells

Burying a Box Spell

You could also bury a box spell to keep it extra safe. You can bury it on your own property or bury it on someone else’s property if you’re working on another person. If you wanted to do a spell to bring prosperity into your home, bury your box in the front yard to invite abundance into your home. If you have prosperity and you want to keep that prosperity, then bury it in your backyard where it’s going to stay. Dig a little hole, bury it there, and then set it and forget it. There’s your box spell for all eternity until some archeological dig finds it ages from now!

You can also give a box spell away to someone. Either tell them not to open it, or let them open it if you’re giving it to them freely. Either way let them know what’s inside and what it’s for. Such as “I made this box spell for you to have peace in your home.” Or, “I made this magic box so that you have a prosperous business.” “Congratulations on your new job. I want you to have success. Here’s your box spell. Put this in your drawer at work.” That can be an entirely other way to work with a box spell.

The Treasure Chest Spell Box

A favorite of mine is the treasure chest spell. Pirates would gather loot together and put in the treasure chest. They would then bury it somewhere for safekeeping until they could come back and get it at a later time. You can do a treasure chest spell as well. Put your treasures (treasured talismans, coins, your special lucky, charm, etc) inside of a chest and then put it on your altar.

I always think in a treasure chest spell, it looks great to have a box that has that rounded top like a treasure chest. This will really amplify your work. That shape alone invites abundance in. Once you put those magical things in there and get them charged up and going, that magic is going to take off.

Creating Mirror Box Spells

A mirror box is a reversing spell, or it can also be a reflection spell. Mirrors in magic reflect back what’s sent out, so if you look in a mirror and you say to yourself, “You got this,” that is reflected back to you. That’s a real positive, reflective spell.

But we can also face the mirrors the other way and reflect or deflect something negative. That’s another way of working with mirrors. We can use a mirror box to contain someone who’s troubling us. Let all their negative energy bounce off the mirrors and back on them. That’s a reversing spell.

So here’s what you need to do a mirror box spell:

The beeswax is important because you’ll want to create a poppet representing the person, yourself or someone else, who you want to reflect the energy back to.

You can do this spell for yourself if you’d like. You could magnify your success or amplify your good luck. If that’s what you want you’ll make the poppet represent yourself, and put good luck items in the box with it.

Another powerful way to work is to use a mirror spell to deflect negative energy. It’s clean and easy. You’re not doing anything malefic or harmful to anyone else. You are redirecting their negativity away from you and back to the source.
So create a poppet and then use a glue gun to glue mirror tiles to the inside of the box. It’s almost like you’re creating a little house of mirrors in there. Once those have cooled and dried, you place the poppet inside the box and close it.

What to Do With Your Finished Mirror Box Spell

You don’t want to keep a reversing box spell in your home, you want to bury it. Traditionally we would take this mirror box spell and bury it in a graveyard. But you could also bury it anywhere off of your property where it won’t be found.

So, there you have it. A bunch of delicious ways that you can use box spells to make some amazing, long-lasting magic.

How to Manifest Abundance

How to Manifest Abundance by Working with Your Spirit Guides

There are many methods to manifest abundance but one of my favorite ways to do this is by working with spirit guides. Working with spirit guides is a powerful practice in general but when we invite our guides to assist us with our prosperity and well-being we bring on a dream team who can lead us to amazing results.

What Does it Mean to Attract Abundance?

To begin to work with your spirit guides in this way, you first have to understand what it means to attract abundance. Abundance is a state of having your needs met and manifesting abundance means those needs are met easily.

There are many forms abundance can take and each of us have our own ideas on abundance. Many people equate abundance with prosperity but financial abundance is just one form that abundance can take. Abundance can show up as health, happiness, love, community, success, protection or food and shelter. The list of what abundance means for you is personal to you and everyone’s idea of abundance is different.

How Do I Bring Abundance Into My Life?

To bring abundance into your life, you have to first understand how to open your flow. Think of your flow of abundance being like water and your mental state as being like the pipes that bring abundance in and out of your life. Like real water pipes, we want to keep our pipes clean and open for the water coming in, but we also want to to keep the pipes open for the water going out.

What that means is that we want to make it a habit to keep our thoughts positive for the abundance that is on its way to us, but also appreciate the abundance that we have right now and the abundance that moves through our lives.

How Do Spirit Guides Help You Manifest?

Spirit guides are loving spirits who assist, guide, and protect each of us. When we develop a connection to our guides, communicating with them and paying attention to the messages and gifts that they send our way, we solidify our relationship with them and then can receive the direction that they give us.

Spirit guides can open doors to abundant outcomes, lead us to our abundance, and guide us to opportunities but that doesn’t mean that you have to sit around and wait for it to happen. The process of manifesting is a team project.

How Do You Increase Financial Abundance With Your Guides?

One of my favorite ways of working with my guides to increase abundance is to create a spirit guide abundance altar. It’s simple to do and can be done with things that you probably have around the house.

What you’ll need for a Spirit Guide Abundance Altar

  • Small table top or shelf

  • Green or gold cloth

  • Figurine or framed photo of an abundance goddess/god/spirit

  • Small yellow, green, or white candle in a holder

  • Basil or marigold plant or fresh yellow flowers in water

  • Small bowl or cauldron with coins

On your small table or shelf, place the cloth (a small handkerchief works great for this) and arrange the figurine or framed photo (you can print one from your computer or use a tarot card of abundance such as the Queen or King of Pentacles to represent your abundance spirit guide).

Place the candle in its holder, plant (or flowers), and small bowl or cauldron with coins in it around the image in a eye-pleasing way.

Light the candle every Friday and let it burn while you are awake and at home. When you go to sleep or leave the house, snuff out the candle and relight it when you return.

If you have particular wishes, you can speak them as you light the candle or write them out as a petition on paper and place them in the money bowl.

How Can Your Guides Help You Release Abundance Blocks?

If you feel blocked around money, I recommend a simple spell using a cleansing bath.

For a simple cleansing bath, add the following to your bathwater:

Step into the bath in a mindful way. Focus, meditate, visualize, or speak out loud. Ask your spirit guide to assist you in your wishes to remove any blocks you may be holding around prosperity and money.

When you come out of the bath, dry yourself off with a clean towel and dress yourself in clean clothing.

For extra-stubborn cases where your money luck is crossed up, do the cleansing bath once a day for three, seven, eleven, or thirteen days.

Your Spirit Guides Want To Help Your Abundance

Your spirit guides love you and want to protect and guide you to your highest and best outcomes and that includes your abundance and prosperity. Invite them to help you and they will bring you exceptional outcomes.

Just Starting to Connect With Your Spirit Guides?

If you are just starting to connect to your guides this may seem a little overwhelming. Check out this great article about meeting your guides for the first time.

using box spells for manifestation

Make Some Magic in Your Life Every Day

Magic is everywhere — if you know where to look — and you can use real spells of magic in your everyday life for happiness, love, relationships, and making your dreams come true.

Witches have long known that with simple witchcraft supplies, there are ways to create amazing magical moments in your life with real magic spells.

And even if you’re trying your hand at witchcraft for the first time, then the best way to begin is to start with a magic spell box to gather all the good influences and energies you want to attract into your life

If you are ready to change your situation in jaw-dropping ways, then here’s how to create a magic spell box and use it to bring in powerful and positive manifestations:

Decide What to Use for Your Magic Spell Box

The main thing you will need for this spell is a box, of course. Find or make a beautiful box: An old jewelry box, a wooden box, a pretty tin, or even a cigar box that you can paint or decoupage would be perfect.

You could buy a box specifically for the purpose of turning it into a spell box, but if you are repurposing one, decorating it to make it special and attractive will connect you to the box in a deeper way.

It’s important that the box that you dedicate to this powerful work looks special and beautiful to you. If it’s ugly, you will think about that every time you look at it, and you won’t have faith in your magic.

Choose What to Put Into Your Magic Spell Box

Sit down and think of some of the biggest, brightest, and highest vibe things that you would like to bring into your life. They could be anything!

A few ideas might be finding your soulmate, getting promoted at work, or having the money to take a great vacation.

Gather some magazines and find photos and words that represent the things that you would like to manifest. You can also find these photos or words online and print them out.

For example, if you want to take a trip to Paris, you could find or type out the word “Paris” or get a photo of the Eiffel tower or a person having a glass of champagne at a Parisian sidewalk cafe. Find beautiful pictures and words that best represent things that you would like to bring in.

Create a Phrase to Bring Your Magic Spell Box Together

When you’re ready to make your magic really happen, gather together your photos or words and the box and speak your intention for the box out loud. Your words should be your own heartfelt sentiment, but they could be something like:

“This box will work day and night to manifest my dreams and desires,” or “Magic spell box, make my deepest desires a reality.”

You can also speak your intentions in a rhyming couplet if you’d prefer, as well.

“Magic spell box, bring to me

All the things that here I see.

These photos and words will lead me to

The wishes that will all come true.”

Whether you choose to chant in rhyme or speak from the heart, be sure to say some kind of opening words as to what you want the box to do.

Focus on Each Intention as You Put It in the Box

After speaking these introductory words, put the pieces of paper into the box one by one and say an intention of what you want each of them to do. Again, these are your heartfelt wishes, but they could be anything, like:

“I graduate with an MBA.”

“I have an amazing new boyfriend.”

“I happily receive a promotion and a raise.”

There is a powerful quality to speaking these words as if they are something you already have in your life right now.

As you put each one in, speak the intention with power and conviction.

Seal Your Box With a Final Magic Spell

Once you have finished putting all your wishes into your spell box, close it up and say some final words to seal the spell such as:

“Thank you magic spell box for making my wishes come true,” or “I can’t wait to see all these good things manifest in my life.”

What do you do with the box after you’ve closed it?

Once you’ve added the photos and words, put your magic spell box someplace that’s special but out of the way. The back of a closet, a bottom drawer, or on top of a bookshelf are the perfect kinds of spots.

The point is to set the spell in motion and then let it do its thing. Think of it like putting a cake in the oven and letting it bake.

Adding new wishes anytime is fine, but don’t be a helicopter parent to your dreams.

If you want to add some more intentions to your spell box, because maybe you decide that you want a trip to Paris and a trip to Indonesia, then of course, you can add a trip to Indonesia to the box. Just be sure to say your magic words as you do.

Adding wishes to the box at any time is fine. However, leave the wishes that are already in it alone.

Opening up the box every day and looking through the slips of paper and saying, “Well, I haven’t gotten that yet!” will do nothing except slow your magical roll.

Make Your Magic Spell Box an Annual Ritual

Leave the box in its special spot and then, a year after you made it, go through the slips of paper and look at all the amazing things that you manifested in that time period.

You could decide to make this an annual ritual, pulling out the photos and words of the things that you’ve manifested and adding new wishes to the box. Scheduling this work on a day that’s special, such as your birthday, New Year’s, or a holiday will give it even more power.

Get started with this practice when you feel ready to bring in real happiness and change in your life with a little magic. I know you’ll discover that you’re an even better manifester than you thought when you see all that you can create with some intention, trust, and time.

11 Ways You Can Make Some Serious Magic with the Full Moon

Make Some Powerful Full Moon Water to Do Moon Magic

What’s more magical than the moon? Is there anything more beautiful than a full moon on a clear night, the silver light glistening in the crisp fresh air? Whenever the full moon shows her face, it’s the perfect time to do some powerful moon magic.

When I was a little girl, long before the internet let us find anything we wanted at the touch of a Google “I Feel Lucky” button, I was always searching for any information I could find on magic. In a book somewhere I read that witches would spin around three times and bow to the moon on the night when it was full. So, the little girl that I was would go out into my backyard, look up at the full moon, spin around three times and then make what I thought was a graceful, dizzy curtsy.

The Full Moon Is a Perfect Time for Doing Divination

I was born under the sign of Cancer, and Cancers are ruled by the Moon, so it was only natural that I gravitate to what I call my “Moon Mama” but any sign can benefit from working with the Moon. Full moons are the perfect time for doing spells for increasing psychic abilities and powers of divination. It’s the perfect night to dust off the old tarot deck or do a tea leaf reading for your friend, for example.

Make a Powerful Magical Water to Use All Month Long

Full moons are also amazing for creating powerful intentions for love, prosperity and blessings. But you don’t have to limit that kind of magic to just that one night. If you want to carry the power of the full moon over to the rest of the month, you can capture the magic by making Full Moon Water. Full Moon Water is an extremely powerful water for blessing in any context.

Before you get started, check your favorite online moon phase calendar to see when the full moon is going to be at its apex. If it’s early in the morning or during the day, this spell can be started on the night before so that you capture the waxing moon’s magic.

Spell for Full Moon Water

Fill a clear glass or white porcelain bowl with spring water on the night of the Full Moon. You don’t have to go to a spring to get the water (although, that would be amazing). Bottled spring water will work perfectly for you city spellworkers. As an alternative, you can gather rainwater or melted snow for this spell, which is another amazing way to add an extra level of magic to the working.

If you would like to supercharge your spell and really draw in some extra magnetic force, you can place some tumbled moonstones around your bowl of water to amplify the moon energy.

At moonrise, place the bowl outside or, if you’re going to do your spellwork inside, place it next to a window where the moon can shine down on it.

Hold your hands over the bowl as the moon begins shining and say a prayer or intention for the water, for example, “Open my psychic abilities and strengthen my intuition,” “May my true love be drawn to me,” or “Bring bright blessings into my life.” Whatever you are asking for, ask for it with a clear, confident and powerful intention.

Leave your water in the light of the moon for the entire night. The next day, you can decant your water to a bottle to use throughout the month.

Ways to Use Your Magic Full Moon Water

You can use this holy moon water to sprinkle around your house to bless and protect it.

You can add a bit of clear alcohol (such as vodka) at about a 10% ratio to preserve the water. Keep it in the fridge and you can drink it all month long.

You can use it in magic potions, such as teas.

You can add it to your bath water for a spiritual cleansing.

You can use it to bless and consecrate your magical tools.

You can place a cup of it as an offering on your ancestor altar.

You can pour it over your body for a self-love ritual.

You can plant a magical plant and water it with this amazing water to infuse it with your intention.

There are so many beautiful ways that you can use this holy moon water.  Let your inspiration guide you.
