A simple, but effective, spell.

    • Clear your mind and breathe (in Hawaiian, this is known as piko-piko)
    • Focus your energy on the object to be banished
    • Chant:

      Sand and sea,
      Wind and Sun,
      Banish it now, its power is done!

    Basil Protection Spell
    This should be done during a full moon.

    • Begin with your customary ritual opening (casting the circle, etc.)
    • Have ready to use: one orange candle
    • one carnation flower
    • some freshly cut Basil (hopefully, you gather from the plant yourself, in the proper manner)

    Place the carnation in a bowl of consecrated water. Set the basil in front of the orange candle. Light the orange candle with the Presence candle. Breathe deeply as you clear your mind. Begin to concentrate on the powers of protection, visualizing a strong shell surrounding you, glowing hot. Then, say in a powerful voice:

      I call on the Guardians
      and on the power of the Lord and the Lady.
      I surround myself with the protection of fire.
      I am supported by the strength and grace of Earth.
      The winds bring me gentle shifts
      And Water's flow eases the energy in this time.
      I believe in this protection and I release my fears,
      So that I may connect with the pulse of life.
      May this be done within the greater good,
      So mote it be, and be it, it should!

    Be sure to close your circle and give appropriate offerings in thanks.

    Dark Moon Ritual

    • Use only consecrated ritual tools.
    • Bathe in Fairy Realm bath salts.
    • Annoint your body using Lady Morgana oil.
    • Light a black candle, then burn Hecate incense on charcoal.

      Begin: Kneeling in front of the altar, meditate then recite the following: "Dark Queen, Thou who dwelleth within the mouth of the Abyss, descend and show Thyself to me! I seek to be rid of all that dwells within the dark parts of my Soul! I seek to bring all these things to light and therefore have naught between me and Thee! I am confounded by my Shadow self and would ask Thee to swallow it up and rebirth it as power and inspiration!"

      Raise power to serpent, which is wound around waist and thighs, as it represents the power of the Lady.

      Lead meditation: Descend down the tunnel at the base of the altar. Watch for animals. Go to a tree. Find Shadow. Call upon the serpent and direct it using your will. When finished, ascend, saying: "Thou are the Dark Sea from which all life comes and unto which all life returns! Morgana, of the Dark Moon, I acknowledge the Three within the One and am humbled by Thy Might. Accept me as Thine own daughter of Darkness as well as of the Light! I walk the path mightily and am powerful in the eyes of the Gods!"

      Now to the candle: "As this candle burns, so shall my fears. When it dies so shall they cease to be!"

      To close the circle: "The Great Mother is ever our refuge. I may enter circle with a heavy heart but leave refreshed and revitalized to face the world anew!"

      Leave your candle somewhere safe and record your visions in your notebook.

    A Protection Bottle Spell
    Used to neutralize the power of those who intend to inflict physical harm upon you, or hurt your reputation, or in any way pose a threat to your security. You Will need:

    • 4 tbsp. Frankincense or Myrrh resin, crushed into powder
    • 4 tbsp. Black powdered Iron
    • 4 tbsp. Sea Salt
    • 4 tbsp. Orris Root Powder (or Oak Moss)
    • 1 white candle
    • 1 glass bottle with a cork or lid
    • Mortar and Pestle
    • Parchment paper
    • Feather Quill and Dragon's Blood Ink (or regular black ink pen)
    • Black thread

    Mix the sea salt, orris root powder and powdered iron in a bowl. Cut a piece of parchment to fit inside your bottle. Write the following words on it using dragon's blood ink or black ink:

      I neutralize the power of (name of adversary) from doing me any harm.
      I ask that this be correct and for the good of all.
      So mote it be!

    Roll up the parchment so that it becomes a scroll small enough to fit inside the bottle. Tie it with black thread to bind it. Place it in the bottle. Fill the bottle with the dry ingredients. Take the white candle and, while turning the bottle counterclockwise, drip the wax over the cork to seal it. Lastly, secretly bury the bottle in a place where it will not be disturbed or otherwise dug up by animals or people. This spell is like a genie in a bottle. It should never be opened, else the power of the spell is lost.

        And bring the beauty I request"
