Health Spell - A powerful magic spell for good health. This spell is based upon an age-old ritual for good health during the coming year. It can be performed at any time, but the Spring is best.
You will need:
A piece of soft, white chalk
A beeswax candle that has never been burned
A small quantity of soil or sand (about ½ cup)
The spell should be performed somewhere where you can draw on the floor with chalk.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Stay inside the pentagram after you have drawn it. DO NOT step outside the pentagram again until the spell has been completed. Don't forget the matches or a lighter, as you will need to light the candle while inside the pentagram.
Use the chalk to draw a pentagram on the floor about three feet wide. After you have drawn the pentagram, sprinkle the soil or sand over the pentagram, but take care that none falls outside the pentagram.
Next, light the candle and hold it in your right hand. Face east and recite the following words three times, speaking them aloud:
Mother Earth's fires flare,
From the earth into the air,
Days of sun bring fields green,
Water springing forth to clean,
To wash away the old and worn,
And leave the dew of summer's morn,
Let no sickness wander near,
Keep it far away from here!
Once you have spoken these words three times, extinguish the candle BEFORE stepping out of the pentagram. The spell is done. Do not light this candle again for one year. Store the candle in a safe place where it will remain undisturbed.
