The Spell of the Shell
Casting Instructions for 'The Spell of the Shell'
- A symbol of your desire
- Fine nibbed marker pen
To perform this spell, you must find a suitable shell in shallow water. Take the shell and dry it thoroughly. Draw your chosen symbol upon the surface of the shell. For healing, we suggest the Edhadh Ogham Stave:
Place the shell upon the shore so that the tide will bring the waves across the shell. When the shell is in place, draw a triangle in the sand, enclosing the shell completely. The symbol upon the shell must be facing upwards (towards the Moon).
Meaningful words, or phrases, may be placed upon the shell also, or simply written in the sand (inside the triangle). Finally, face the Moon and say the following words of enchantment:
"Goddess of Moon, Earth and Sea,
Each wish in thy name must come to be.
Powers and forces which tides do make,
Now summon thy waves, my spell to take".
Leave the area now and the spell is set. Once the waves come, then your wish will be taken out to the spirits of the sea. It will usually take about seven days for a -lunar spell to begin to manifest, but it can take as long as 28 days.
This type of magic is what we called little works and belongs to the folk-magic level of spell making.Take care to note the phase of the Moon (waxing forthe gain of something, waning for the dissolving of-something). You are using natural objects which to- the uninitiated mean nothing.
