Hello my dear occulties,
Ah, I have been so M.I.A. lately, have I not? I have been quite busy, tho not with much pay to show for it. ;) One of these reasons is a site I work for who takes a damn 30% commission on top of paying me once a MONTH (thanks, uh, the check from last month still isn't here... :P) And another reason I have been busy this month is that everyone keeps breaking up with their loved one or getting themselves into some sort of trouble which requires my help with praying or spellworking or both. ;)
I am also in dire need of a dentist to pull out my wisdom teeth (all 4 impacted and needing to be pulled for more than 5 years,) so I am enjoying the fun times of having one of those badboys bothering me... Well, I am a big baby about having ANY teeth pulled (because I never have,) so I admit to having slacked on scheduling that dentist appointment throughout the past 5 years. ;) The Fella says I should "suck it up," and just let the dentist put his foot on my chest and yank. Amusingly enough, my dentist is going to send me to the Fella's dentist so I can be gassed when they pull out my wisdom teeth, yet the Fella's dentist did not gas the Fella when he yanked out his wisdom teeth. (My dentist does not use gas, just novocaine.) Despite the fact that the Fella tries to reassure me that I will get the "good drugs," yours truly does not find any of this comforting and is willing to wait another five or 10 years. As is, they will already need to fish around in my gums for parts of the stupid things...and mind you I was supposed to have perfect wisdom teeth but getting a knock to the head in college actually somehow broke them all in my effing head, so they came in broken. Let this all be a lesson to you that life (and dentistry) is not always fair.
Anyhow, let us get on with the topic at hand, shall we? Today I felt like...well, like being brief, since Mercury is in retrograde, and apparently this means I will have a hard time speaking my native tongue of English or writing an article for all of you (there are already 2 half-finished ones in my saved folder.)
Today's spell is a rather cute one that I made up all by myself (aren't you proud?) that I call: Lucky Shoes. It is basically a charm made up to bless those kicks you walk around in all of the time to be lucky charms (but they will still smell, so don't expect them to be rendered "magically delicious," like the cereal.)
You will need:
Dragon's Blood resin
A mortar and pestle - or a bowl and crushing item
and some newspaper or scrap paper.
Take the herbal ingredients of allspice, cinnamon, dragon's blood resin, Irish moss, and the rose petals (about equal amounts of each,) and place them in your mortar (or bowl.) Using your pestle (or crushing item) crush these herbs into the finest powder that you can. Now add 1 drop of VanVan oil, and 2 drops attraction oil, and blend it through the herbal powder. Place the powder on some scrap paper or newspaper to allow it some time to dry....about 12-24 hours is good.
Now that your powder is dry, place both your hands over the powder, and imagine green, gold, white, and red energy circulating in to the powder from your hands as you say, "I do empower this powder with the strength to draw to me luck and good fortune through all my ventures, whatsoever they may be," seven times. You may now add in any particular statements that you feel are suitable, or any prayers, then finish with, "As is my will, so mote it be!" Set your powder aside.
Taking up your shoes, look for a place on the inside of each shoe where you can place the powder that will be under the insole if possible. I have a few sets of heels where I dug under the sole from the outside and placed it in the heel. It is up to you. Once you have found this spot, place a pinch of your powder in there in each shoe. The idea here is for the powder NOT to have direct contact with your feet because it will stain your socks...and your feet will attract the powder so you wil have to replace the powder more often.
Now, anoint the sole of each shoe with 1 drop VanVan, 1 drop Attraction, and 1 drop of Lodestone. Hold one shoe in your hand and say, "By wearing this shoe, I draw to myself luck and good fortune in all matters," seven times. Say, "As is my will, so mote it be!" Pick up the other shoe, and repeat this process.
You have just made yourself a pair of LUCKY SHOES! If you want to keep those shoes at full power, I recommend repeating this process of sole-anointing and shoe blessing at least every 7-28 days. Enjoy those lucky kicks... ;)
Also, keep your powder in a seperate air-tight container. It can be used to make some more lucky shoes or to replace the powder that will naturally disperse over time.
I hope you guys have enjoyed the lucky shoes spell. It is a fun one, and worth a try if you are looking for some added luck.
