Celtic Lenormand Healing Spell – Update

The last full moon on May 4, I have created a Healing spell for myself with the CelticLenormand by Chloe McCracken and Will Worthington. Today when the moon is almost dark and we are about to enter another moon cycle, I wanted to share with you my experiences and some alterations I've made.

First of all I am happy to say I feel a lot better than two weeks ago. The sun has certainly began to shine more regularly for me and since I have been mediating again, I do feel more calm and peaceful. I won’t comment on how much this has to do with my spell but I can say with certainty it did help a lot.  Every time when I went to my room I was reminded by the cards of my intent to enter the burial mound to face my fears and come out stronger, more confident and happier. During these two weeks I noticed it was hard for me to do so. It was almost as I was lingering before the entrance of this burial mound. So I strengthened my Spell with some crystals. I picked one for each “bridge” card: Black obsidian for dealing with my fears and grief, Rose Quartz for the love I want to give myself and others and Amethyst  for the wisdom I need to grow and move forward in life. 
And still it wasn't enough. Fear can be suffocating and grief can cause large stumbling blocks. That's when I decided  to turn to Deity. To represent the fierce aspect of the Goddess I choose the Lady card with her spear in her hand and shield in the background. I blended the entrance of her house with the entrance of  the  Burial Mound.  She would be there to give me courage and protect me when I would enter the into the darkness.  I also added a bindrune which is the combination or Nauthiz ( the strength to persevere) and Uruz (vitality and willpower). Especially the woman card was helpful for me. It gave me the feeling I didn't have to do the scary part all on my own.
As you can see I have added quite a bit. For me magic is like cooking: adding ingredients and spices to a dish until I feel the recipe is finished. I also think it keeps the spell's energy moving. 
Tonight I am going to take down my spell and give thanks for the  positive changes in my life.
( and maybe be cook up a new one……)

  1. well done. Spell = intent + action, no magic except that supplied by our own mind and heart. Well done.

    Adding the Lady really does make it look so much more powerful and supportive. What a great idea. I'm glad it is working for you! :)

    1. Yes that comparison suddenly bubbled up. Creating magic is like stirring in the cauldron of transformation :D

  3. Your intention followed by your action will result in progress, as it already has (and I'm very happy you're feeling better!). Doing something different rather than repeating a habitual pattern can bring great changes. Your altar is lovely!

  4. I absolutely love this! And I totally agree, my spells tend to change with me, adding this bit, taking away that bit :D I'm glad setting this intention has helped you feel sunnier!

  7. What a beautiful discussion of your experience with your bridge spell, and the ways you reinforced it! The honesty with which you write is, I think, what makes your posts so wonderful :)

    1. Wow That is a wonderful compliment Olivia, coming from you. I am always trying to show parts of myself in my posts, so my readers can get to know me.
