Sea Witches and Water Witches

719651209146c30cd9cb0fde21c0154c

First let’s start by defining what a Sea Witch is and what a Water Witch is.
Sea witches usually define themselves as a witch that works with sea and ocean energies. Their altar may include sand and water from their local beach or beaches they have visited on their travels .They also may choose to perform magic on the beach with their found ocean treasures such as beach glass, shells, driftwood, bones, stones and fossils.

Not all sea witches work with a deity but for those that do they tend to choose sea deities such as Poseidon or Aphrodite, in some cases they may also choose to work with water spirits such as mermaids, oceanids, nereids or the spirit of sea monsters such as the Kraken or Leviathan. These are just a few examples of course; there are thousands of sea and ocean spirits to work with and some choose to work with living sea creatures such as fish or shell fish. There are so many ways to practice sea and ocean magic if you love the sea and the moon and it heavily influences your path and the magic you work then chances are you are a sea witch.

Sea witches focus on Moon lore, the tides, and weather magic, from these elements came the tradition of witches who could raise wind and cause storms, which even 200 years ago could send them to the stake. The Sea Witch does not just use white magic or black magic but gray magic because the person deals with all elements at their disposal when maintaining a balance between light and dark powers. Not many ordinary persons can manage such a feat, which is why most sea witches are solitary, working alone and by themselves.

According to legends witches were believed to be able to control the wind. One method was with the use of three knots tied into a rope, or sometimes into a handkerchief. When the three knots were tied in the proper magical way, the wind was bound up in them. Witches gave, or sometimes sold, these magic knots to sailors to help them experience safe voyages. The release of one knot brought a gentle, south westerly wind, two knots, a strong north wind and three knots, a tempest.

Although some choose to call themselves sea priestess, rather than witch, a sea priestess has a bit of a different calling than a sea witch. Witches are generally concerned with magic, spirit work and divination. While a sea priestess may also engage in these things, they are more concerned with serving a sea or ocean deity. You may find a sea priestess on the shores performing healing rituals, energy work or cleaning the shores.

Originally water witches were folk practitioners who would use a divining rod or rods to find water where one might dig a well or water source. However in modern times, many witches of the Watery nature have found that the term Sea Witch does not apply to them. Perhaps because they are to inland or perhaps because the lakes, rivers and sacred springs sing to their hearts the way the ocean does for sea witches. Water witches may be found working at their home altar with beautiful sacred bowls or jars of water based potions. Others may work at a sacred water site such as a holy well where they work with the water and the spirit of the well to bring about healing. They may also be found cleaning the shores of the local river bed and performing healing rites in a quite spot under the shade of a willow tree.

There is absolutely no reason why a Sea witch can’t work with water from a sacred well or a water witch can’t work on the sea shore. I personally am more of a sea witch I can use and prefer the pull of power and energy of the waves.

Witchy bottles & jars for magic.

il_340x270.1623241575_h3q0

In many traditions of folk magic in Europe and  North America, a spell is sealed inside a jar, bottle or other container. This serves a number of purposes, the first being that it keeps the magic concentrated, and prevents it from escaping before the spell has been completed. The other is that you can take it and put it anywhere you like.

Perhaps the best known type of jar spell is the witches bottle. In early times, the bottle was designed as a way to protect oneself from any negative witchcraft, usually around the time of Samhain, homeowners would create a witch bottle to keep evil spirits from entering the home on Hallows Eve. The witch bottle was usually made of pottery or glass, and included sharp objects such as pins and bent nails. It typically contained urine as well, belonging to the homeowner, as a magical link to the property.

The sort of container you use in a jar spell or bottle spell will partially depend on the intent of your working. For instance, if you’re hoping to do magic for healing and wellness, consider putting your spell ingredients into a medicine bottle, pill container, or apothecary style jar.

A spell done to sweeten someone’s attitude can be done with a jar of honey. In some forms of Hoodoo and folk magic, honey is used to sweeten someone’s feelings towards you. In one traditional spell, honey is poured into a jar or saucer on top of a slip of paper containing the person’s name. A candle is placed in the saucer, and burned until it goes out on its own. Another variation, the candle itself can be covered in honey.

You can also make a banishing spell using a jar of hot sauce, for this process the name of the person you wish to be rid of is written on a slip of paper, and stuffed into the jar of the hottest hot sauce you can find. Shake the bottle every night for seven nights during the waning moon, and on the final day, empty it down the loo and get rid of the bottle, hopefully the person will then “hot-foot it” out of your life.

A money jar spell can be done to bring wealth your way, in some traditions nine pennies are used, all though it may be various coins placed in a jar or bottle. The jar may then be painted green or gold if you wish and then put someplace where it can be seen each day. Eventually, according to tradition, money will start coming in, this one is best done on a full or new moon.

Keep in mind that spell jars can be plain and simple, or you can decorate them to look pretty. The nice thing about a decorative, attractive jar is that you can leave them anywhere you like, and no one will even realise that magic is going on.

Shell Magic

tumblr_p4ggdf60MG1v8d5b1o1_500

Long before new age shops our ancestors turned to nature for their power objects, seashells in particular have a long history of magical uses, as they were associated with the powers of various sea gods and goddesses of different cultures.

Properties

Being born of the ocean, shells are associated with the element of water, they are also associated with the moon, which drives ocean tides. Both the element of water and the moon have strong feminine energies that are receptive in nature, so shells are primarily used in magic to draw things you desire into your life.

Preparation

Shells taken from the ocean don’t need ritual preparation for magical uses; however, if your shells were bought from a store or have been stashed in a box for a while, they may benefit from cleansing and recharging. To do this, place your shells in a bowl of water mixed with sea salt. Set them aside to soak for a day or overnight. Recharge them by setting the bowl in the sun or under the light of the full moon for several hours.

Love

One of the main symbols for Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, is the seashell you can invoke the power of Aphrodite for love spells using shells by wearing seashell jewellery or hair ornaments to attract a mate. Use a hinged seashell with the two parts still attached as a powerful love talisman to keep two lovers together. Write the initials of the lovers on the inside of the shell, one on each side, then seal it shut with glue.

Prosperity

Many cultures used shells as a form of currency. Cowrie shells were used in Africa and North America, and Native Americans used wampum, beads made from clam shells as money. Because of this, shells are also suitable for money spells. Fill a small green or gold pouch with seashells, a silver coin and mint, which is a money drawing herb. Hang the bag where you do business, and rub it when you desire prosperity. Place a small seashell in your wallet or purse to continually keep money coming to it.

Protection

Protection is a shell’s primary purpose in nature, as it is made to keep small, defenceless sea creatures safe from harm, again because of this, shells have strong protective energies. Many cultures in coastal areas use shells in folk magic to protect the home by placing strings of shells over windows and doors. Necklaces of strung shells can be worn by children to keep them close to home and safe from harm. Some believe by placing a small, round shell on the collars of your pets will keep them safe should they wander from home.

Manifesting your goals.

2f3e526dc1978720e07537684fd523d6--grateful-quotes-grateful-heart

Working as a psychic, I often deal with clients who are trying to manifest new opportunities and create a better life. I have a few rituals that can be really effective at getting people into this mindset and help to bring about their dreams, whether it’s attracting financial abundance or making more like minded friends. I hope that they help you attract all the wonderful opportunities that you’re after.

Is your mind getting in the way of your highest good?

Putting together a plan of action may be second nature for you, but when it comes to manifesting, it’s best to surrender and let your mind be open to all possibilities. Who knows the Universe might have something better in store for you. When you begin trying to manifest a new job, lifestyle, partner or anything else, don’t latch on to too many details. Try to remain open and flexible.

 Watch out for the signs.

Be more present and watch for signs from the Universe. When you’re trying to make a big change or bring something new into your life, the Universe will begin to send you guidance. Watch for synchronicities, or meaningful coincidences, repeating numbers and songs are common signs.

Try to curb those judgmental or negative thoughts.

When creating magic you’ll have more chance if you make the decision feeling positive and optimistic. If someone or something makes you think negative, try to avoid them or the situation, or use mindfulness to redirect your thoughts. If you’re going through a rough patch, remember that you can be sad and still genuinely grateful for the blessings in your life.

Keep your intention in mind.

Writing a reminder of your goals in your journal or just talking to a close friend or relative going over your ideas are great ways to stay proactive. This keeps your focus on the prize, so to speak.

Be aware of your claircognizant abilities.

Pay special attention to those thoughts that seem to pop into your mind “out of nowhere” or any large chunks of information that seem to appear rapidly.

Keep your mind focused with rituals.

Rituals work best when you enjoy them, so if you read about a ritual, don’t be afraid to personalise it in some way. With this full moon energy still going strong it’s a great time to start.  Here are couple to get you started!

Create a nature altar.

Go outside and collect anything that your drawn to this can be sticks, rocks, leaves, flowers, find a spot on where you can assemble your altar. Then as you arrange the objects think about your goals and silently ask that the Universe come to your assistance. Leave your altar out for the week, and every time you look at it, thank the Universe for its help with your manifestation goals.

Perform a candle and journal ritual.

Set aside some quiet time say 15 or 20 minutes when you know you will not be interrupted, light a white candle to open your ritual, get out your journal, but instead of writing down what you did earlier in the day or what’s been on your mind, continue to let your mind be blank. Silently ask the Universe or your guides what you most need to know right now about your goals, try to let the ideas and words come through you. This is known as automatic writing.

You should see something written on the page when you finish, hopefully they are things that have never thought of that before. You might see some fears that you were aware of but didn’t want to admit to yourself or others. Once you’re done, sit and gaze again at the candle’s flame, and then blow it out to close the ritual. Be sure to silently thank your spirits and your guides for any ideas or words of wisdom that came through.

Wishing Stones

8f4dac5876d8022f92b08b4a2e2945fe.jpg

I love wishing stones if you take your time with them they can be a lot of fun especially  if you just want to throw caution to the wind and wish big. I often find them while walking around outside I then save them for when I feel that I need a little luck.

Over the years, I have found quite a few of them I call them my rainy day wishes.

I’ve had a few rainy days where I turned to my wishing stones, but before I use the wishes I’d been saving I wanted to make sure I used them to their fullest potential. After some thought, I decided on these three methods, and now I want to share these with you.

The common lore on wishing stones is that they can be any size or shape and colour except for a solid white band encircling the entire stone. This band can be of any thickness, but there should only be one and it should be unbroken. That unique white ring makes these stones somewhat rare, but unmistakable. I have always relied on these ones because I have had success with them, so I’m sticking with it.

As soon as I learned about wishing stones, I wanted to collect as many as I could. I have had a lot of practice finding them and that white band became easy to spot and I could find them quickly.

Location is not a problem wishing stones can be found anywhere. If you just want to give the stones a try, you could go searching and probably find one without too much effort.  Or, if you wanted to make a day of it, head somewhere a little off the beaten track and look there.

Half the fun is finding them I try to go to places that feel special to me. It’s not entirely necessary, but it adds to the experience and makes my stones seem a little more precious. This can be a solitary activity or you can go with a friend.

So, once you’ve collected your stones, how do you use them?

The Shared Wish

The shared wish is meant to “double” the power of the wish by using two people’s intentions rather than one. Intention, as always, is so important when performing any kind of magic even when using simple wishing stones. Small to medium stones work best.

Before beginning, go over the instructions with your partner so both of you are on the same page during the process. It’s important that both people are wishing for the same thing in the same way.

Hold hands with your partner and place the wishing stone between your palms, then firmly clasp hands. With your eyes closed and hands together, both of you need to focus deeply on the wish, thinking in present tense terms as though your shared wish is already happening. For example, “our trip is safe” or “we are healthy.” If needed, say the wish aloud.

Now, visualize the wish occurring in your mind. Imagine what it looks like to have your wish happen, imagine what it feels like. Try and feel only the stone in your hand and focus only on that and imagine the wish flowing from your palm into the stone and swirling around inside it like smoke.

Open your eyes. If one of you is still concentrating, don’t interrupt them. Once their eyes open, you can release hands. Your wishing stone is now charged with your intentions! Times two!

Because this is a shared wish, neither of you needs to carry the wishing stone around, the stone should be placed on a high point, preferably outside like a window ledge where it can be exposed to the elements and release the wish as it likes. Once your wish has been granted, you should thank the stone and then return it back to a natural environment.

The Moon Wish

This spell is designed for larger wishing stones that can’t be carried around with you.

On the first day of the moon, prior to making your wish, dig a hole big enough for your wishing stone on the east side of your home. Make sure it’s deep enough for the stone to be completely covered with no chance of exposure. At midnight on the first official day of the moon, close your wishing stone in your hands and make your wish. Meditate on your wish for as long as you feel necessary and at least long enough to warm the stone in your hands . This process may take a while depending on the size of your stone, but that’s beneficial to you because the more time you spend focusing on your wish’s intentions, the better.

Once the stone is warm, go outside and bury it in the hole you dug earlier. Pack the earth tightly so the stone will be undisturbed, and mark the spot so you can find it easily.

On the third day after the moon unearth the stone and bring it inside. Make a warm salt water bath and wash the stone so it is as clean as when you found it then take the stone back to nature and thank it for its work. If possible, take the stone east, toward the sunrise and leave it in a place where the sunlight touches it.

Quick Wish

This is supposed to be fast and fun for less specific wishes as it requires a lot less concentration. This is for “good-intention” wishes, like wishing for health and happiness, or something you are waiting to happen.

Hold you’re wishing stone tightly in your left hand, warming it slightly. Then close your eyes, and as you say your wish aloud, turn the stone over in your hand three times to charge it with your wish. When finished, hold the stone with your right hand and throw it eastward as far as you can. Because of the nature of these wishes, you don’t need to keep the stone with you. Instead, when you throw the stone, imagine yourself throwing your good intentions into the universe and hoping they come true.

You can also buy wishing stones online if you’re not having any luck finding them where you live, wishing stones are meant to be used once and then discarded so someone else can find it. Back to the single white band, one band, one wish. So, don’t try to reuse the stones if you want more wishes, just find more wishing stones!

After all the work finding the stone, some may not be so ready to part with it once the wish has been granted. This is up to you, but I think you’ll have a better chance of having your wish come true if you throw the stone.

Unlike your quartz and amethyst and the loyal stones you may carry with you or place on your altar, wishing stones don’t belong to you. Think of them as little spirits who come into your life temporarily to help, who you then release so they can help someone else.

Connecting with spirit

how-to-call-upon-your-spirit-guide-300x168

One of the goals of a lot of people on a spiritual path is to learn the ability to receive messages from the spirit world and to be able to communicate with spirits. We all come onto this path at different levels and I know that it can be very frustrating for some. Others are already aligned with their natural skills and they have a good foundation for spirit communication.

Like anything we do, the more you work at it the stronger and better you will become and the more it will grow. There are a few stages we go through when learning to make spiritual contact.

Stage One – No Sensation – This is usually caused by a disconnection between the third eye and the nervous system. Numbness, the skin is unable to pick up spiritual sensations including a lot of the physical sensations in our world. A lot of these sensations we think are physical, actually can have a spiritual component to them.  Children, they embrace everything with enthusiasm and wonder, so they experience a lot, adults tend to be less aroused with the world around them, in turn tend to miss things. These subtle cues are how the spirits connect to us in the beginning stages.

Stage Two – Slight sensations – At this stage, the third eye and the nervous system have connected and you can sense things going on around you. You might not be able to make sense of much but you are noticing that strange things are indeed occurring. Your third eye has started working in alignment with your body and your chakras, through exercises and spiritual practises it will now steadily grow stronger. It would be a good idea at this time to figure out what area you are strong in and work with exercises specifically designed for developing that ability. At this stage pay close attention to what goes on around you and what you feel and see. Be open to the idea that it might be your spirits trying to interact with you.

During this stage…

You might hear the same song over and over again
You might notice things in your environment move
You might see shadows and orbs
You might have tingles and slight vibrations on your skin
You may experience strange smells
You might develop strange tastes
You might hear a ringing or a buzzing sound
You might get images and visions you can’t make full sense of
You might have dreams where you recognize symbols or energies that are familiar
You might hear things; words, sentences, expressions, laughter.

Stage Three – Awakening – At this stage your senses are really starting to awaken, they are starting to emerge, and you are really starting to experience things. You might not know where things are being derived from but you are starting to get very strong sporadic bursts when it comes to sensing and working with your third eye. At this stage you are starting to really experience powerful psychic moments. They might not last and you might not know how to control them but they are there and you are having them. At this stage you will begin to get a handle on your abilities and know what you need to do to continue growing and developing them. You will begin to know yourself, your senses and know what areas you are strong in and what areas need working on. You are really beginning to understand yourself.

You will also ….

Have a moment of powerful psychic intuition that is uncontrolled.
You might see shadows and shapes around you.
You might hear words or phrases.
You might have moments of strong communication with your companions.
You might have moments were you feel them.
You will have dreams of your companions and have lucid experiences with them.
You will develop a basic communication system to interact with them.
Your senses will begin to stabilize
You will have routines with your companions and know how they work and have moments where you see, hear and sense them very clearly.
May now you should try new exercises, try new things and experiment with your skills and abilities. See if you can expand and awaken new abilities in yourself.

Stage Three – Strong Sensations –Your third eye is beginning to be comfortable with its abilities and how it connects to and works with your physical body. You have a stronger sense of the energies going on around you and you are in a higher state of arousal.

You may notice things in your environment, music changing, things moving, things happening, coincidences, symbols.
You can see the shadows of your companions and you can begin to make sense of what they are doing.
You are able to get strong smells that would otherwise go unnoticed.
You can see your companions in your mind’s eye and get visuals and images.
You can hear them and have ways of communicating with them.
You are able to feel and sense their energy.
You can have dreams with them and uncontrolled Astral projection or OBE with them.
You will experience their energies on your skin and have sensations from your companions touching you.
Have fun with your companions and know them and their personalities, you are able to tell them apart and get a sense on how they sound and talk, feel them and touch them.

Stage Four – Full Sensations – At this stage you are working flawlessly with the rest of your senses and you are tuned in to the spiritual world. Your third eye, nervous system, chakras, body are all working together to translate the spiritual energies that are around you. You have control of your abilities and you know yourself pretty well. You know your companions and know who is who and what they are doing.  At this stage it is all about going deep. You want to have a solid exercise routine and continue to work your skills pushing them, experimenting with them and trying new things with them.

You know who is who and can tell whose energy belongs to which companion.
You can tell when you are being touched or stroked, you can feel them and focus on feeling the sensations.
You can hear them and hold full conversations with your companions even a group of them at a time and you can tell who is talking to you.
You can smell them you will know the aromas that your companions have.
You will be able to have Lucid Dreams whilst interacting with them, have controlled astral experiences.
You can tell the difference in your companions energies.
You can see them walking about, interacting with each other and know what they are doing
you can joke around with your companions and understand their difference language patterns and humour.
You can tell the difference between them.
You can have physical stimulations from them and receive messages and inspirations from them.

Remember to be patient with yourself and be open to every possibility. There is a lot lying dormant within us, just waiting for the right time to be awakened.

Tea magic ritual for self love, try it on the next full moon.

2288f4d2074548d45dafda3138cd6c51

Do you like the idea of doing a full moon tea ritual this is where you spend a few precious moments  preparing  and drink your tea, you can do it alone or share it with friends and family. It is your choice but the experience will have better results if you do it by yourself.

Some of you may feel emotional and deep feelings may rise to the surface during this ritual and you’ll be more at ease to let them out if you’re alone. The way you do it doesn’t really matter as long as you do it mindfully with intention, be conscious of how you feel and try to stay in the moment when following the ritual, feel free to customise it slightly if you like.

I love this tea ritual because the process of preparing it is a magical act in itself, tea brewing involves the union of the five alchemical elements. That’s why tea rituals are a particularly powerful kind of magic. You don’t even need a magical circle for it to work although you can still cast one to help you if you want too maybe some of you will also set up your altar.

Elemental Correspondences:

Earth: The herbs in your tea

Air: The steam and scent of your tea

Fire: The warmth needed for tea brewing

Water: The medium of you tea, its liquid state.

Recipe: for herbal tea for self love and self acceptance.

A small tea pot makes approximately 2 cups

1 tea spoon of rose petals

1 tea spoon of jasmine

1 tea spoon of thyme

1 tea spoon of lavender

A pinch of sea salt (or table salt)

Honey for flavour

You will need your favourite tea set a mortar and pestle and a kettle.

First, gather the herbs.  (You can substitute it for normal tea leaves if you wish if you don’t have the recommended herbs.)

Using a mortar, grind every herb separately. While you’re grinding them, focus on your goal.

Charge each herb one by one by passing your hands through them. Imagine that a white light goes from your hands to the herbs. When you feel the herbs tingling with energy, put them into your teapot.

Boil the water in your kettle. While you’re waiting prepare yourself and your sacred space. Ground yourself, burn some incense and light a candle.

When it’s ready, pour the hot water on the herbs. Focus on what you’re doing then find a place where you can see the moon. Sit near of your window, or if the weather allows it, go outside.

Let it cool down and think about how you see yourself remember all the times when you’ve been hard on yourself. Think of the moments when you’ve felt that you were not good enough or not worth of the other people’s love or admiration.

Say to yourself – I am a good person. I am worthy of all the good things that are in my life. I am enough. I love who I am.

Drink your tea as you drink it imagine that you’re surrounded in a pink light a loving, healing, protective energy. Breathe it in, and imagine that it’s filling your soul with love and compassion.

When there is only a small sip of tea left, stop drinking. Pour the last drop of tea into the ground as an offering. Thank the Full Moon and the Universe for their help. Above all, thank yourself, self-love is not an easy thing.

Leave the herbs in the garden if you feel like it write what you’ve felt in your journal.  The most important thing to remember to always be kind towards you, self love takes practice to become good at it.

What will your cards reveal for you in 2018.

The witch, the warrior, the queen & the high priestess.

Screen-Shot-2014-02-19-at-11.32.37-PM

The witch, the warrior, the queen, the high priestess all these knowledgeable and wonderful women have in common a genuine inner beauty, combined with magical training that gives them spiritual wisdom and other worldliness to inspire others in there magical and spiritual work they often represent hidden knowledge, intuition, the unconscious, secrets and anything that needs deeper exploration when asked to give advice or psychic readings they are often spot on, as people they are mostly a little introvert, quiet and good listeners they won’t talk much about trivial things but if you ask for advice, they will often come up with insightful and helpful guidance.

They don’t get involved in gossiping, but love observing people and form their own opinions, which they keep to themselves. When you first meet her all you see is the tip of the iceberg. If you want to see the whole picture, you have to dive deep, which takes time, effort and patience, she may seem a bit passive at first, but over time you realise she is fiery, strong and incredibly efficient in an effortless sort of way.

She is leadership material and she can have a powerful influence with her counselling skills and inherent wisdom, her friends often rely on her when difficult decisions have to be made. She likes to rule quietly, but won’t be happy if someone else tries to take her limelight. As more and more hidden gems are gradually revealed, you will discover the odd weakness, too, which she is very eager to keep hidden like fragility and sensitivity.

She is linked to the moon, which can make her susceptible to other people’s moods, insecurities and self doubts; therefore she can see trouble brewing and offer sound advice. Some of you may like to take note of these wise words for they will help you as they have helped me in my life…

Always try to listen rather than talk then wait and see rather than take action, always trust your intuition often facts are not always what they seem to be, only offer advice or share your opinion when you are asked for it, stay calm when faced with conflict and don’t get involved in drama, be observant and learn from what you see, do your research thoroughly and accept nothing at face value, remember first impressions do count but remain open and receptive to all possibilities. Yes your creative ideas have great potential but they need refining and a clear plan for action, meet uncertainty with patience and don’t panic take your time and slow down, always keep personal and sensitive information strictly confidential and choose your words wisely for they have energy and you can never take them back.

I have used my psychic ability and spiritual knowledge to help many people over the years in my teachings and by doing Tarot and other readings. I use my intuition and my guides to uncover secrets and hidden knowledge.

What advice are you seeking today?

Clear quartz, the witches favourite.

19959040_10155394674531772_3304140744206546932_n

Witches, if you are only going to have one crystal, then this is a must have. Quartz is one of the most versatile of crystals, and it is able to do just about everything you need. It boosts the powers of other crystals, focuses and directs energy, especially quartz points, and can be used for protection balancing, meditation, and dispelling negative energy.

All witches have a wand, although traditionally a wand is associated with wood rather than crystal, a crystal can be equally effective in directing the energy of the caster. Long pieces of quartz can be used to define the circle or simply to direct will when working.

We have to cleanse our crystals and there are many ways to charge them, by using moon water, moon light, even burying in the earth, one of the simplest ways is to leave crystals to charge on a bed or inside a geode of quartz, I do this often to the ones that I wear. Quartz is a charging crystal that rejuvenates your other crystals and leaves them cleansed and charged.

Quartz has protective properties and can be worn close to the body either in the form of jewellery or in a pocket or bra to protect the wearer. It can also be placed around the home for protection to your property.

Quartz can be used in a ritual, it can be worn as jewellery, sewn into ritual robes or even attached to magical tools, it helps channel the energy and is used for protection, to keep negativity out and enhance the safety of the circle and the participants.

For psychic dreams, if you place this crystal beneath your pillow, the quartz can assist you to have dreams of a prophetic nature.

During healing, quartz can be moved over the body this helps to heal any weak patches in the aura and restores energy.  When using quartz to heal remember to cleanse your stones after using as they will pick up any residue of negativity clinging to the aura.

Infused your crystal in water, ideally its best left overnight in the full moon. The water can then be used for cleansing your magic tools, and for home or work clearings and blessings.

Lastly, probably the most widely known use of clear quartz is the crystal ball. A crystal ball is used for divination, some seers see a physical image in the crystal and others use the surface to rest and clear their mind and allow them to either see images in their mind’s eye or to enable knowledge to come forward, this can take a lot of patience and practice as my development circle tribe will tell you.
