Getting the most magickal bang for your buck from your spell working herbs…
With the cost of adding to your witchin’ kitchen rising faster than a broomstick ‘n Hallowe’en, it makes sense to charge then up and get them to their full potential before you even think of starting any workings. There’s not a lot of point in using the old, dried up magick of the jar of basil that’s been sat at the back of your cupboard for the last year or more.
Before you charge your bounty, it’s best if you get yourself into a focused state of mind, so that every last sparkle of magick intent flows into them. By reducing the frequency of your brainwaves and relaxing, your manifestations will be far stronger.
So sit quietly, close your eyes, and take three deep breaths. Imagine that there is an infinite cloud of energy floating above you, and with each inward breath, draw that energy into you, and allow it to relax your mind and body. Once you feel that you have achieved a relaxed state, you are ready to boost the energy and potency of your herbs.
Stay in your relaxed state, and with your herbs in front of you, place your right hand (which is the hand used for the release of powers into an item) over each in turn. As you do this, picture the energy within you transforming into a golden light, and allow this energy to flow through your hand into the item.
As you do this, say: “With this energy, I unlock your full magickal potentials, empowering you with the gifts from the Multiverse”.
This method can also be used for roots, crystals and oils, and you can be sure that once you have completed the charging ritual, your ingredients will run as smoothly, powerfully and efficiently as an engine running on premium level gas!
