To Make a Dream Pillow
Casting Instructions for 'To Make a Dream Pillow'
- 1 part each of at least five dried herbs
- Dried orange and lemon peel
- 1/2 part mugwort
- 1 part myrrh or frankincense resin
- 2 pieces of lightweight cloth such as muslin
- Needle and thread
- Your personal choice of decoration
Burn a little of the frankincense or myrrh resin to cleanse your working area. Mix the five dried herbs in the bowl in whatever proportion feels right. While doing this, think carefully about the purpose of your dream pillow; for example hops will give a sound sleep, mugwort induces psychic dreaming and camomile promotes a feeling of wellbeing.
Crumble the dried peels into small pieces and add the rest of the finely ground resin to this mixture. Sew together three sides of the material, leaving one side open so you can easily fill the pillow with the herbs. Make a mental link with Hypnos, the Greek God of sleep or Demeter, Earth Mother.
Decorate the bags with magical symbols, Moons or your own personal preferences. Fill the pillow (not too full) with the herb and resin mixture and sew up the final side. Your dream pillow is now ready for use. You may now use your dream pillow whenever you require. Slip it into your pillow case and inhale deeply.
Dream pillows are very useful if, for instance, you are away from home and need to create a certain ambience, or if you need continuity while working on a particular dream project. A typical use of a dream pillow in shown in the spell Dream Power overleaf.
