Magickal Work for Family Harmony

In this post we will explore a couple of ways you can help manifest family harmony. Perhaps a family reunion or holiday is coming up and you don’t get along with one or more family members. Or perhaps there has been a series of fights in your household recently. Whatever the case may be, the following magickal workings may prove helpful.

Meditation

Get into a meditative state and visualize the place that your family will be interacting. Perhaps this is your home, the home of a relative, or somewhere else entirely. You can visualize the exterior, interior, or both; moving from the exterior to the interior. Now, visualize a blue mist/rain/fog/etc. (whichever you prefer) come over the area, washing away any negativity and replacing it with a calming, harmonious energy. Blue is a color of peace and harmony. By doing this meditation, you are sending these energies to the location.

Spell

Materials Needed:

Regular Altar Tools

Light Blue Candle

Cauldron

Water

Stones (preferably moonstone, but generally any stones will do) (1 for each family member including yourself)

Spell Work

Ideally, this spell is done under the waxing or full moon. Cast the circle and fill your cauldron with water. Place your stones in the cauldron. Each one represents a family member, including yourself. The water cleanses them of any harmful energy that may prohibit them from interacting together harmoniously and lead to hostility. Place the light blue candle in the cauldron (it should not be completely submerged) and light it. Visualize yourself and your family members together; laughing, smiling, and generally getting along. Hold this visualization until the candle burns down and the water extinguishes the flame. At this point, the harmonious energy of the candle and the cleansing energy of the water are infused in the stones. Remove the stones from the cauldron as they are now cleansed and charged with harmonious energy. Release the circle and return the water used in the cauldron to the earth. Keep the stones together in a safe place.

The above meditation and spell have worked wonders for me, and I hope that I can help others by sharing them.

Protection Magick Spell: Protection from a Harmful Person

The most important thing that needs to be mentioned before we begin is that this is not a spell to bring harm to the person you need to protect yourself from, it is simply to keep them away from you. It is important that you have the intention that this spell be mutually beneficial. To do otherwise is not in accordance with the Wiccan Rede.

Materials Needed

Your regular altar tools (for circle casting, elements, etc.)

Cauldron

Four Thieves Vinegar (Usually apple cider/white vinegar as base with garlic, and sometimes with herbs such as rosemary and sage. Many recipes can be found online)

1 Black Candle

Parchment Paper and Pen

Spell Work

Ideally, this spell should be done during a waning moon, but emergency circumstances may not allow you to wait. If you must, this spell may be done during any moon phase. However, if you can, it is best to wait for a waning moon.

Cast the magick circle. On the parchment paper, write the name of the individual whom you need protection from and set it on the altar. Pour the four thieves vinegar into the cauldron. Place the black candle on top of the paper and light it. Visualize the person as clearly as you can as you watch the candle burn. Say, “In the name of the Goddess and the God, I seek protection from _____. May he/she be prevented from causing me harm. Let this be for the highest good of all, harming none.” With the black candle, light the parchment on fire and allow the ashes to fall into the cauldron, mixing with the four thieves vinegar. Hold the black candle over the cauldron and allow several drops of wax to drip into the mixture. Then snuff out the candle and break it in half, symbolizing your separation from the person. Close the circle.

The next day, dispose of the four thieves vinegar mixture. This should be done outside, but not too close to your house.  (I was lucky enough to live on a 10 acre wooded property, so this was not difficult for me). If you don’t have a large property, simply do this as best you can. You could even let it run down your driveway, as long as it flows away from you. You want to keep this person and their energy away from you.

Finally, dispose of the 2 black candle pieces in two separate locations, far from one another. Again, this symbolizes the separation between yourself and the other person, as well as their inability to get to you and harm you.
