~The Book Of Shadows Continues~

~ The Ways Of Old~

 

The Ways Of Old may not be found in any written text…

For the Ways Of Old must be shown from generation to the next.

If desire in thy heart, one should wish these “Ways” to see…

Pray by moonlight to thy Goddess and the teacher will find thee.

 

By the student a vow be taken…

The teacher’s power may not be forsaken.

As a student of the “Ways Of Old”…

Not a secret to an ill willed be told!

 

Magick by moonlight, with good in thy heart…

A rule of the “Old” before thee may start!

Crystals shall aid & cards do tell…

By the rune of “Old”, passed or future see well!

 

Cast thy circle of light around…

Three times shall keep thee safe & sound!

Magick & healing should be pure…

For what is sent out, three times will return!

So heed the wisdom of an Elder’s word…

One must only use the power for good!

 

As the student continues to grow…

A star of study by the Elder is bestowed.

Five points in the apple that thine eyes may see…

Show more than just it’s beauty.

It tells us a tale of Earth, Air, Water, & Fire…

The strength to survive & thy heart’s desire.

The symbol shall show one where to start…

To see inside the Elder’s heart!

 

Lady resourceful, be thy guide…

Green are your hills and your mountain sides.

One should replace what is taken times two…

And place offering, beneath your eyes of blue.

 

God of all, power of thunder…

Your skills teach us life without hunger!

Your strength ever keeping us from harms way…

Watching over as you have forever stayed!

 

Seeing the cycles turn from one to the next…

A moon in her cycles from fullest to crest.

Celebrate new life and plant in the Spring…

The cycle moves on to change but again.

Nurture life through the Summer heat…

Celebrate the Solstice, night and day shall meet.

The cycle still turns from one to the next…

Share with thy neighbor, & harvest the rest.

As the light continues to fade away…

The promise of life falls gently to lay.

Celebrate the knowledge of what thou has grown…

Through the time of the Darkening, thou shall reap what thou has sewn.

The circle of life shall continue to spin…

Never ending the next cycle begins.

Feel the cool wind touch thy face…

Remember loved ones who have left this place.

Very true to the “Ways Of Old”…

Remember the knowledge the Elders have told!

Reflect upon the time that has passed…

As the season moves on never reaching the last.

As this cycle shall proceed to turn…

May thy home & hearth ever so brightly burn.

The Day of most darkness has found its way…

The time now is to celebrate the coming of day.

We show our love with gifts of life…

Blessed may he be, the Child of Light!

The birth of the lord, the promise of day…

The darkness will begin to fade away.

The “Mother” must now lay herself to rest…

To prepare for the season that turns to her next!

Her Love brings us hope & life as she lives on…

From season to season, from dusk to dawn!

 

Through death and strife these traditions survive…

For hundreds of years, “The Old Ways” shall thrive.

 

So be it a vow of promise one knows…

From student to elder one must grow!

So teach from your heart with honor & pride…

To keep “The Old Ways” forever alive!!!

~Spell By Comb & Mirror~

 

Spell given to me by my teacher. Its author I do not know.

It is wonderful to use and very empowering so if the author does so happen to reach these

Pages please come forth so I may thank you for a wonderful peace of magick.

 

At such a time as a woman feels that for pleasure, rest, or for magickal need, she wishes to draw power to herself, she shall draw it to her by combing/brushing her hair. If brush/comb & mirror of silver are available, she should use them.  It is important for her implements to be closely linked to her. She shall dress in a manner that is auspicious to the meaning of the spell & sit comfortably alone, dimming the lights of her chamber.  A single candle fitted for her goal, along with sweet incense should be lit. For the space of thirteen heartbeats she should sit and become quiet within herself. With each stroke of the brush or comb say aloud or within…

 

“ O’ Lady of shimmering beauty, for whom the stars are shinning jewels, & the Universe her creation & plaything, weaver of destines & protectress of things wild & free. Make me now I ask, to be thy sister. Make me one with thee & grant me thy far-flung power, grant to thy Witch & sorceress, strength within & without, as eternal as the boundless sea. The Winds, Waters, Fires, the hills themselves, lend willingly themselves to me please give to me, who am of thy ancient craft. Knowledged of light, Knowledged of dark, that I reflect thee better. Build magic within me, build power within me. “

 

This last portion should be repeated as many times as you feel proper.

 

 

“ Power be drawn & power come, & make me one with thee, Make me greater, make me better, grant me strength and grant me power. O’ Goddess who is my friend and my sister. I give you love & thanks, O’ beautiful one, May wisdom & strength remain with me, growing ever finer. So mote it be!!!” 

 

 

She shall continue brushing until the power & energy has been sent forth.

 

 

~A Mirror spell To, Reverse a spell~

Before you say the chant you must first dress a black candle with dragon’s blood or vetivert oil.

You should rub the oil into the candle starting at the bottom moving up all the way to the top.

Hold and visualize the negative going back to the one who sent the negative towards you.

Now light your candle with and earthen source like a matchstick no lighters. Make sure the candles reflection is in the mirror or it will not work. Then say 3 times…

 

“By Mirror and light I send back to thee,

that which was sent to me, times three.

 

By the mirror on the wall…

It is sent back to the sender,

Once and for all!!!

So mote it be!”

 

Now let the candle burn completely out. The black candle represents the negative that surrounds  you. The mirror is reflecting the candle decreasing so the negative is returning to the person whom sent it.

~Spell To See your destiny ~

First you should make a cup of tea. Made of a teaspoon of Chamomile, ¼ teaspoon of Cinnamon, & 3 Borage flower tops.  You may use a coffee filter or a piece of cheesecloth to bundle the mixture for steeping. You should use fresh herbs, but if not available to you, then you may use herbs purchased from the store. Mix your herbs in an earthen bowl or dish. Mix them while visualizing what you wish to know.  Boil your water and then bundle the herbs and begin steeping. Take tea to the altar. You will need a pale blue candle rubbed with sandalwood or Almond oil. Rub oil into candle from both ends to the middle with both hands. Again visualize while dressing the candle. Light your blue wish candle. Light your Lord and Lady candles, Invoke them both and then kneel to your altar and say…

 

“ Lord & Lady, here I kneel on bended knee…
I ask of you to show to me…

The steps I’m to take into my destiny.

The way to reach true harmony, I wish to see.

 

What shall I become?

What is that I shall be?

This is what I ask of thee!

This question I send by candlelight.

This is what I wish to see this night!  

 

Be it by vision or be it by dream…

By morning light this wish I will have seen!

 

In the name of the Lord & Lady,

With harm to none,

I send this out,

This spell is done!

 

So Mote It Be!!!”

 

Drink the tea you prepared. Thank the Lord and Lady and say goodbye to them both.  Put out their candles, but leave your candle to burn out on its own.  By morning you should have seen what your destiny is. When you first rise in the morning try very hard to remember what you saw in your dream, or before falling to sleep. Write down what you do remember before doing anything else.  You may need to take a tablet & pen to lay close to you before going to sleep.

~ Spell for weight Loss ~

Things you will need are a spool of thread, & a piece of parchment paper if you have it.  If you have no parchment paper any paper will do as long as it is blank. You will also need a fairly large piece of hematite stone. You should sit by a body of water, pond, lake, or ocean when doing this spell. Draw a picture of your body as you see yourself as best as you can. When you are done fold up the picture and hold on to it, visualize what your body should look like. You should see your body in good health and the size that you should be. Sit and meditate on this image for a few moments. Now fasten the picture with thread around the hematite. Tie it up real tight. Then take in hand and visualize the pounds literally going into the stone, until you can feel the stone is completely full.

 Take into your hand and say…

 

“Stone of health, stone of healing… absorb from this body the weight that is unneeded.

Bring to me health and agility…

 from this illness set my body free”

 

You will now with as much strength as you have, throw the stone and picture into the water, know in your heart that you have succeeded. Thank the lake for its aid and turn around and never look back.

This spell should be done during the new moon for best results!!! Good luck!!!
