Simple Passing Ceremony for a Pet

Simple Passing Ceremony for a Pet

Supplies:

One purple candle, holy water, Oreo cookie, one favored pet toy, stalks of fresh mint. NOTE: Purple is the color associated with the dead. The Orea cookie, with its white and black coloring stands for the darkness before the Fire Mother and the Light of Spirit. (It also happened to be my pet’s favorite food). Mint is used to banish negative energy as well as provide protection for the spirit of the deceased during his or her journey to the Summerland.

Instructions: Band the stalks of the mint together with string or a rubber band. Lightly crush the mint, once, in your hand. Dip the leaves in the holy water and sprinkle over the altar, then sprinkle around the area in a clockwise direction. Return to the altar. Sprinkle the candle (avoiding the wick). Hold the candle in your hands and close your eyes. Think of your pet being happy in an environment that he is or she loved. In your mind, surround your pet with favorite toys and food. Know that your pet is safe and in the arms of the Goddess and God. Focus loving energy into the candle. Take a deep breath, relax and open your eyes. Place the candle back on the altar and light, saying:

 

“I love you and I release you to the happy,

loving place where Your Spirit belongs.”

 

Allow the candle to burn completely out. Bury mint, candle end, food, and toy on your property, or place on the grave.

The day after you pet has passed away, you may not feel so good physically, which is to be expected.

It is also traditionally plaited into a horse’s bridle or mane to guard it against stumbling. You can keep a small turquoise attached to a small animal or bird cage.

Items You Will Need:

A small turquoise of any quality

Timing:

Ongoing

The Spell:

Empower the turquoise by leaving it outdoors for 24 hours at any time from the Full Moon to the end of the moon cycle to absorb protective sun-moon- and starlight.

Become Closer To Your Cat Spell

Witchy Comments
I am doing a little substitution here. Friday is ruled by Venus thus being a day which magick should be casted involving the heart. Love spells, in other words. I am not a huge fan of love spells. Instead of a love spell today, I would like to offer the following substitution.

SPELL TO BECOME CLOSER TO YOUR CAT

Preparation:

Work with brown candles. Take the following herbs and empower each with its meaning and becoming closer to your pet/familiar in mind.

– Catnip – Helps create a bond between you

– Vervain – For Peace and Protection

– Gardenia – For Spirituality

– Saffron – For Strength

– Love Seed – For Friendship

– Passion Flower – For Friendship

Working:

Take 1/2 of the empowered herbs and wrap in a small square of brown cloth and tie it off with a brown cord or string. Take the other half and make a smaller sachet for your pet. Wear yours four days meditating with your pet at least once a day.

You can tie the pets sachet on while meditating. After those four days take all the herbs and burn as an incense while sharing a meal with your pet.

String the beads on the elastic, one at a time. With each bead say the following affirmation also: “{Pet’s name} is safe and sound at all times and in all situations, now and always.” Visualize a ball of white light surround your pet, keeping him/her safe. When you’ve finished, tie a knot and repeat the affirmation a final time. Open te circle. Slip the protection collar over your pet’s head.

Communicate With Animals

Communicate With Animals

 

Items You Will Need:

None

Instructions:

The animal kingdom is very important to those who immerse themselves in natural magick. Sometimes you may want to communicate with animals or simply see the world through their eyes. A simple spell for merging your mind with animal is as follows:

Center yourself by sitting or lying upon the ground, closing your eyes, and imagine a whirlpool of energy surrounding you travelling in  clockwise motion from your head down to your feet, back up to your head, and back down to your feet. Continue this imagery until you feel grounded and centered, oblivious to daily distractions and cares. Once centered, allow your mind to wander to the animal you wish to merge with. Don’t force the imagery, rather allow it to happen.

Picture this animal clearly in your mind. Watch it, empathize with it, feel yourself merging with it. Imagine what it is like to be the animal. Imagine the sights it sees, the smells it senses, the motivations and ways of thinking it may have. Become those thoughts. Merge with the animal by dissolving the distinctions that make it separate.

Once you have fully merged with the animal, you can communicate with it. Ask it what you want to know. Tell it what you want it to know.

Animal Spells (Magickal Partners)

Animal Spells (Magickal Partners)

Is it time to measure the cat for a magick wand? Perhaps the parrot needs to learn some chants? Maybe there is a set of dominations spells so that the dog can force you to walk him on the schedule he chooses? No, spells regarding animals are still meant for people to perform, although some benefit from some animal assistance. Many of these spells involve protecting animal from physical and spiritual harm. Others benefit humans, through the power and gifts of animals.

Animals who participate in your spells and rituals, enhancing them with their own powers, tend to fall into one of two categories:

*  Familiars

*  Allies

The concept of an animal as a pet is a modern one. Those who possessed this concept of interspecies friendship ahead of their time often found themselves condemned for witchcraft on grounds of familiarity with demonic creatures like cats, birds, rabbits, black dogs, reptiles, and amphibians. Sound like what’d find for sale in any local pet store? Well, familiar animals are exactly that: Familiar. The classic witch’s cat, rabbit or toad, a familiar is an actual, individual animal with whom one can live and share an intense psychic, personal bond. If this characterizes a relationship you have ever had with an animal, then you have had a familiar, regardless of whether you engaged in magickal practices together. A dog who won’t sleep unless it’s under your bed, the cat who follows you from room to room the bird who spends the day perched on your should: these all qualify as familiars.

A familiar’s presence may be sufficient to spark and enhance your magick, whether there is any conscious active involvement or not. For others, the psychic and magickal bonds possible between animal and human create profound power and satisfaction and working closely with other species–those species that usually do not life amongst people—-may discover psychic and magickal bonds, as well. Wild animals that remain wild can also qualify as familiars, though invariably they choose you rather than the other way round. These include those birds or bees that, taking a liking to someone in the family, stop by daily. Scandinavian witches traditionally favored flies as familiars. Wild dolphins occasionally single out as individual human and initiate a relationship. It is not unknown for people living on the edge of woods or in a wilderness place to develop a special relationship with an individual creature.

A familiar is a specific, individual creature with whom you have established a psychic bond. Of course, the limits the creatures with which you can magickally interact. What if your magick requires a rhinoceros or crocodile? What if it requires a dragon or unicorn?

A familiar may be considered an animal ally but animal allied transcend the boundaries of familiars. Animal allies are a form of spiritual relationship: because the relationship may occur entirely in the realm of spirit, any animal may be approached. The presiding spirit of the animal may also be approached, rather than any individual creature.

A person may have as many familiars and/or allies as needed.

Animal Ally Invitation Spell

Animal Ally Invitation Spell

1. Choose a focal image for your altar, something that represents your ally for you. Use a toy, a photograph or an image. It is more crucial that it resonates strongly for you than that it be a literal depiction.

2. Surround it with objects or images that would normally be used to lure this creature. A dish of honey, for instance, summons a bear. Make the invitation as strong as possible.

3. If you can find candles in the shape of your desired ally or its food, add them to the altar.

4. Grind cinnamon and frankincense together and burn them as a spirit-summoning incense.

5. In addition to Step 2, offer literal food (a dish of milk for a snake, for instance). Alternatively, burn images of appropriate food.

6. Relax. Let your eyes go slightly out of focus and await visitations.

7. Try this for up to thirty minutes a day, until you receive results.

Although this spell request a waking vision, realistically your response may still occur during your dreams: have paper and pen by your bedside to record any significant dreams.

A Spell for Cat Lovers

A Spell for Cat Lovers

Those who see a black cat crossing their path as a sign of good luck coming their way, should find that this spell works well for them.

You will need:
Two teaspoons of carrier oil
Three drops of sandalwood essential oil
A mixing bottle
A picture or an ornament of a black cat
Citrine or amber crystals
One white altar candle
One blue taper candle
A boline

Put the carrier oil in the mixing bottle and add the sandalwood oil. With your hands in prayer position, roll the bottle between the palms, visualizing good luck mixing into the blend. When you think the oil is fully charged with good fortune, put the bottle on your altar and spend a minute or two breathing deeply in and out.

As you inhale, see white light enter your body and enshroud all negative energy. When you exhale, see this energy leave your body. When you feel fully relaxed, light the white candle and, focusing on its flame, see yourself as you will be when good luck comes to you.

Now,inscribe your birth number at the top of the blue candle before putting the candle back in its holder and rubbing some of the charged oil on the palms of your hands. See the energy you charged it with warming them, then take the blue candle, holding it horizontally in front of you, anoint it with the oil, drawing the oil from the centre towards you then turning it round and continuing in the same way.

Focusing on making your wishes come true, hold the candle in the air above the image of the black cat, rolling the candle backwards and forwards between the palms of your hands. As you do so, repeat:

Candle’s power and lucky cat,
Please change my luck, so that
I achieve my heart’s desire,
Powered by this magic fire.
And let it be done, that it harm no one.

Allow the candle to burn down or, if you have to, extinguish it with a candle snuffer or between finger and thumb. Clean your hands with the tissue and close your ritual in the way you usually do.
