Casting Instructions for 'Prophetic Dreams'
- A dream-journal
- Mugwort tea
- Blue candles
Sprinkle some jasmine on you pillow before you sleep, and make sure you have a dream journal placed nearby your bedside. Brew a cup of mugwort tea. Light blue candles on your altar. If you want to gain insight into your passions or your loves, burn damiana as well.
Watch the smoke as it coils, and allow it to carry you off into the trance-like state that you spend most of the day avoiding. Say whatever comes to mind, appealing to the goddess or god of your choice to guide your dreams. I usually say something like: "Blessed be the Lord and Lady, for they created the world. The Earth to hold. The Sun to warm. The Moon to guide. The Spirit to dream".
Take sips of the mugwort tea as you repeat the words, gaze into the smoke, and when you feel yourself just about to "cross the line" blow out the candle(s) and say: "So mote it be." Go to sleep. Dream away. Just remember, you don't always get to hear what you'd like.
