Water Magic, Spells for Purification and Protection
I love the element of water. The power and rhythm of the ocean is something that always puts me into a trance. Watching her powerful waves smash against the sand, then pulling them back into her depths. Very trance inducing! So while I was reading my 2011 Magical Almanac, and came across some water spells, I decided to share them here.
*The first one is a spell of purification with rain water:
Refreshing rain spell
This simple spell is good to refresh yourself after a long day or just for purification. For this spell you will need: blue glass bowl, your wand, and some rainwater. Pour the rainwater into the blue bowl. Gently tap the side of the bowl with your wand, then put the tip of the wand into the water and stir. Chant:
Water clean and water bright.
Make my spirit feel all right.
Set down the wand. Rinse your hands in the water, lifting it and letting it trickle back into the bowl; pat your face with your wet hands. As you listen to the trickling water and feel it on your skin, concentrate on washing away the negative energy and drawing fresh power from the element of water. Finish by pouring any leftover water outside onto the ground.
*The second one is a spell of protection for your home:
White water warding spell
For this spell, you will need to gather a bottle of water from a fast running creek or river in your area. Put the water in a white bowl or vase. If you live in a house you'll be walking around the outside of your yard or house; if you live in an apartment you'll be walking around the inside of your room. As you walk, sprinkle the water and chant:
Swift, white water running free,
Keep all harm away from me.
If harm tries to pass by thee,
Wash it down into the sea.
Visualize a river rushing and roaring around the boundary of your home. Imagine that any negative energy or unwelcome entities get swept away from you.
Enjoy playing with the element of water! For more info check out Llewellyn's 2011 Magical Almanac
