One of my friends, Claire, has recently been noticing money “disappearing” from her purse. Of course, nobody knew anything about it, and it was driving her crazy.
“First of all I thought I was mistaken,” she told me, “I’m so busy with everything else in my Life that I have to admit I don’t always know exactly how much cash I have. I didn’t want to accuse anyone else and cause bad feelings, so I left it a while. But after it happened a few times, I had to come to terms with the fact that someone was stealing from me. The final straw came when I had to go and do the weekly food shop, and I was so embarrassed to find that when I go to the checkout, I didn’t have the cash. I just wanted the ground to open up and swallow me.”
We sat and chatted for a while, and I told her to leave it to me and I would come up with a revenge spell. Normally I wouldn’t do revenge work, but as this had happened a few times, and the thief obviously had no remorse, I felt it was fair enough, and they needed to be taught a lesson.
Now, Claire is to say the least, a little sceptical of magick spells, but she agreed to give it a try.
I wanted to work on trying to get the money back first though, as I knew how desperately short of cash she was, and didn’t even have the money to feed her family. The spell working for this one is quite simple – all you need is some pine essential oil and a pinecone.
To do the working, just take a few drops of the pine oil and rub it onto your hands. Then anoint the pinecone with the same oil. Attach the pinecone to a piece of green twine, and then hold it above your head and gently swing it around clockwise, requesting that your stolen money is returned. You do not need to have any suspicions as to who may have taken it, all the spirits require of you is that you make a request.
The second part of this ritual requires you to do a revenge spell using San Cipriano oil. You will need:
- A white candle
- San Cipriano oil
You can make your own San Cipriano oil by blending together:
- Some Low John the Conqueror
- Orris root
- Myrrh resin or essential oil
- Cedarwood essential oil
- Cypress essential oil
- Carrier oil
Simply blend all of the solid ingredients together using a pestle and mortar until they are a powder.
Place then in a bottle and cover them with the carrier oil, and finally add in the essential oils.
Firstly, you need to carve the candle so that it is reversed. You slice the top off to flatten that end, and then carefully carve away some wax at the base to expose the wick so that it can be lit.
Dress the candle with the San Cipriano oil, spreading the oil away from you so that the revenge goes to where it needs to.
Roll the candle in salt, and before you light it, speak to it, describing in detail your loss, what you feel the thief deserves and so on. Describe it as vividly as you can, so that all of your intent goes into the candle.
Then you can light it and sit back and let it do its work…
I saw Claire a couple of weeks later in a local beer garden where she works, and asked her how she had got on.
“Well,” she said, “I did feel a bit of an idiot doing the stuff with the pinecone, but I did it anyway. The candle magic was ok, because I could do it in peace and quiet, and nobody really thinks twice about someone lighting a candle. Anyway, a few days later, I checked my purse before I went shopping as I didn’t want a repeat of finding I had nothing to pay for my shopping with, and I nearly fell over backwards – not only was the money I hoped would still be there in my purse, but a whole lot of notes … It was like the Money Fairy had paid me a visit. I really can’t believe it!”
We sat and sipped a celebratory chilled cider in the blazing sunshine. At least ONE part had been achieved.
And then just a few days ago, I received a text message from Claire. It read:
“Miss Pip! My eldest daughter returned from school today with a face like thunder. When I asked her what was up, she just scowled at me and said, ‘I took some money to school with me to get the latest lippy, and when I went to get my purse, it had gone! Some filthy little thief had stolen my cash!’ There were a few seconds that seemed to last forever as we looked at each other and then she shamefacedly turned away and vanished upstairs.”
So we seemed to solve both of those problems with two workings, and I don’t think any money will go “missing” from Claire’s purse again any time soon. The only thing we never worked out was where the money that filled her wallet had come from – maybe there really are angels or spirits who hear your prayers? Who can say …
