Healing spell with the Celtic Lenormand

Yesterday was the day of the full moon and inspired by Chloe from Inner WhispersI decided this would the perfect time to create a healing spell for myself with the Celtic Lenormand by Chloe McCracken and Will Worthington
Chloe has been talking and writing about how to implement magic into our daily life. Her approach is very down to earth but with lots of room for mystery and enchantment. After having read about her ideas about magic and watched her video’s, I thought performing this spell  would be a beneficial and proactive approach to my current situation. For me a Spell is something between a prayer with props to focus on and an affirmation made visual. I believe there is something magical about intention combined with ritual, words and representations of the intent.

Before I started creating my spell I first performed my own little ritual to break in a brand new deck. First I set  up sacred space with a few items to represent the elements and then I divided the deck in nine stacks and put it back together again. I repeated this three times while thinking of my intent for the usage of these cards.
Then I flipped through the deck to find  some appropriate cards for my healing spell:

Celtic Lenormand, Healing Spell, mountain, clouds, heart, coffin, birds, sun, lily, lenormand

Situation (left) – Mountain (21) and Clouds (6)

As of late I am feeling depressed and weighed down. It is very difficult  for me to move from this clouded and obstructed place

What do I want? (right)- Sun (31)and Lily (30)

I want to life a happy life; to feel  more confident and good about myself ; to let my inner light shine . Also I seek inner peace and harmony

How do I bridge this gap? (middle)– Heart (24),Burial Mound (8) and Owls (12)

With lots of Love (including self love)and inner wisdom I will enter that dark place to learn what is hidden and let go what no longer serves me.  I will come out more compassionate, happy, loving  and a lot wiser

I will leave this spell on my altar until the dark moon when I shall revisit it, see how I’m doing and maybe make some changes for the new moon.

  1. I love the simplicity of your altar with the feather, stone, shells and candle representing the elements - beautiful, especially with the lovely Celtic Lenormand. May your spell be fulfilled!
    The owls (besides representing wisdom) have always symbolized letting go of what is no longer beneficial for me because of their habit of hacking up pellets of fur and bone after eating. :)

  3. This is beautiful, Ellen! Incidentally, I am sitting here listening to Chloe's video on "magic vs. magical thinking" :). There is a lot of power in using the cards in this way. Your layout is lovely, and such a nice way to create energy around your intention. Many hugs.

    1. Thanks Olivia. I've done similar spells with tarot but using the lenormand is a first for me too. This deck is really great to use for magical purposes :)

  4. What a beautiful setup and a gorgeous deck as well. I have not dallied with Lenormand yet (I've barely scratched the surface of the tarot) but I definitely have to keep that deck in mind if ever I decide to learn it. I hope your spell brings great results. :)

  5. Very lovely Ellen,
    Reminds me of Sutras, but with special items that capture the heart and imagination helping to focus on your intention. Beautiful alter. Hugs and prayers to you <3

    1. Thank you my dear friend! Yes, the chosen cards and items do help to remember my intention without actually thinking about it. :)

  6. Oh, Ellen, this is just beautiful! Love your comment about a prayer with props (I remember that conversation with Bev), and I hope this spell will help you move to a more joyful place.
    Another thing about owls is the way their heads can turn to look all around them. I like that as an association, saying their wisdom comes from being able to see past, present and future, or all aspects of a situation. Hope they share their insight with you, to help you through the dark places!

    1. I really enjoy having this spell sitting on my altar as a constant reminder/focus, what it is I want to accomplish and where I want to go with my life. I am so grateful for your talks about magic. They came for me just at the right moment and around the same time I received my Celtic Lenormand. Two encouraging factors to create this highly needed spell.
      Thank you so very much for all this Chloe!
