This week I'm going to share a simple spell for creativity with you.
Sometimes a creative boost is needed especially if you are struggling with a project that requires a lot of focus. So I may just have found the solution for you.
A Simple Spell for Creativity
You will need the following:
҉ ∞ ҉ ∞ ҉ ∞ ҉ ∞ ҉
1 x Orange Candle (Any size)
1 x Candle Holder
1 x Nail
Sweet Orange Essential Oil
1 x Carnelian Crystal (tumblestone)
1 x Ametrine Crystal (tumblestone)
Crushed Bay Leaves (1 teaspoon)
1 x Small Bag (Mojo bag)~ Purple
(party favour Bags are perfect)
҉ ∞ ҉ ∞ ҉ ∞ ҉ ∞ ҉
On the next full moon when its power is at its zenith perform this ritual.
(It is not necessary to cast a Circle for this simple ritual, but if you feel it will help you focus then please do so, just remember to close it properly when you are finished)
Cleanse the candle under running water, be careful not to wet the wick.
Cleanse the crystals in the same way.
Use the nail to carve your intention into the candle, around and around like a candy cane.
Anoint the candle with a couple of drops (less is more - it is important not to go overboard here) of Sweet Orange Oil from the top & bottom towards the centre, all the time focusing on your intent to open up the channels of creativity and free flowing thoughts.
Place the candle in the holder and light.
(Never leave a lit candle unattended ever!)
Focus on the flame as you hold the crystals, the Carnelian in your right hand and Ametrine in your left. Keep in your mind your desire to boost your creativity. The crystals will get very warm as you instill your positive intent into them.
Let the candle burn down either in one go or over several nights.
Once the candle has burnt and the wax is cold, crush the remains. Place them in the purple mojo bag along with the crystals. Put in the crushed Bay Leaves and add two more drops of Sweet Orange Oil to the mix. Put the nail in a safe place, but not in the bag. Tie and secure the bag.
Keep the bag with you for as long as you need, inhale the scent of the Sweet Orange Oil to prompt you when required. You can always top up the fragrance with a couple of drops of the oil once a week if you are going to use it continually. (If you want to, you can place the mojo bag under your pillow while you sleep).

According to the research I've done, here's a brief explanation of the supposed lore regarding the items used in this spell.
Perform on the full moon because its energy is perfect at this time.
The colour orange is associated with the Sacral Chakra, this is located on the body just below the naval. It is the 2nd Chakra. This is centre for creativity and joy, if you place the mojo bag here it may help to balance and open this centre and let the cosmic flow radiate in your life.
The nail is used because of the iron, to ground your intention and make it solid.
The Bay leaf because of its reputed prophetic properties.
The Sweet Orange Oil will stimulate your mind awakening your senses.
The Carnelian crystal boosts creative energy and will help to balance the Sacral Chakra.
The Ametrine crystal is a combination of amethyst: intuition, balancing and awareness. And Citrine: dynamic energy and opening the mind to new thoughts. (According to Gem Lore)
The purple mojo bag. The colour purple (no pun intended) is associated with all realms of higher thought and consciousness.
Please be aware of any allergies/adverse conditions you may have to the ingredients. Remember - if in doubt don't do it.
So there you have it, a ritual with a complete explanation of its properties.
So until next week, be good and if you can't be good be careful and if you have any questions, leave a comment, as I love your comments!
