As life has many layers, (need for security, love, housing, job, etc.), so too spells can have many layers. For example, let’s say you are stressed out and not sleeping because a coworker gets under your skin and you want to take a trip to Jamaica. You need the money for this trip, you want someone to go with and you’ve heard that there are areas that may not be safe so you have no idea how to proceed. A creation spell is a layered spell or one spell to handle all the concerns surrounding your situation that will help you to bring about or “create” a new situation.
Ready? First be clear in your own mind how you want your trip to look because what we think about continuously invites those circumstances into our lives. Get a white candle that will represent you and cleanse it with either salt water, your breath, Florida Water or whatever you like to use. Hold it and think your intentions, picturing clearly what you want to experience. Let’s say you are stoked to go to a beach there. See it clearly in your mind’s eye, hear the waves roll in and recede, smell and feel the ocean spray on your face, taste the salt, hear seagulls, feel sand between your toes. Light the bottom of the candle and secure it to a fireproof bowl. Pour water into the bowl and speak your intentions into the water. Be vivid. Feel how you think it feels to be on a beach in Jamaica. Water amplifies intentions. If this is all you have to make magick with, it is more than enough. Remember, words are power and thoughts are power. Thinking on what you desire and speaking it into the Universe is a spell as well, but if you want to jazz up this spell and give it more punch…
Burn pine needles in your cauldron to draw money to you for your vacation. Remember that there must be a “channel” or a way to receive money into your life but it is possible that an opportunity to make money can present itself through magick. You can surround the bowl with your candle with crystals like amethyst to make your intentions to relieve stress and promote sleep, lapis lazuli to help you connect to your spirit guides for advice on how you should plan your trip, black stones from your local park to invite protection or put salt into the water, rose quartz to invite love or a friend to go along. Seashells are another element to add to this spell because it represents the beach, protection and serves to draw things to you. If the shells are not from the sea, immerse them in sea salt and water overnight and surround your candle with them. Other representations of a sun-soaked dream in the Caribbean is sand which stands for balance, stability, grounding, protection from negativity and a gold candle which stands for solar energy... Enjoy!
