1. Basic Candle Spell and Correspondences

When your sacred space is created and secure, your candle anointed and rolled in the appropriate herbs, write this spell upon a piece of parchment paper. Recite it three times, and burn it in the flame of your spell candle– scattering the ashes to the wind to dispose of it.
“I cast now a healing spell for (name),
That there shall be unto thee,
Blessings of good health and healing,
By the power of three times three,
So mote it be.”
2. To Cure an Illness(knot magic)
Traditionally knot magic is done with a nine foot long red cord or ribbon. But for this healing spell, we’re going to use the healing energy of the color green. Make sure that you mark nine points on your green cord or ribbon, where nine knots will be tied.
The idea behind knot magic is that we tie up our intentions, as well as the energy that can manifest those intentions, within the knot. For this spell, we’re going to grab the energy to banish illness on the night of the dark moon, or within three nights afterwards. We’ll cast the spell, tie the knots, and lay this cord aside to let the magic ferment. As the energy of the moon grows and builds towards the full moon, so does the energy contained within the knots. On the night of the full moon, we will untie each knot, unleashing the magic and manifestation.
1. A nine foot long green cord/ribbon
2. Three votive candles– two black, one green
3. White pillar altar candle
4. Health & Healing oil
5. A blue lace agate stone
6. A red flannel bag
Assuming your space is prepared, your circle cast and quarters called, you will carve the name of the target on the green candle and anoint it with the Health & Healing Oil. Line the three votive candles up on your altar, the green candle being in the center. Light all your altar candles and incense, and get yourself seated and comfortable to work on your knots.
As you tie the knots, keep an image of the target before you on your altar, preferably a photograph, or an image visualized in your mind, if you don‘t have a picture.
Tie each knot to the following chant, and as you work from knot to knot, keep the chant going continuously. Take your time. Eventually the chant may run together in a whispered frenzy. It also may become very mesmerizing, and you may feel ‘floaty’ and spacey by the time you reach the end of the ribbon. This is good, it means that you’ve put yourself in an alpha state, where magic is possible.
“Illness leave, go away,
Good health I bid you come to stay.”
When the knots are tied, the chanting stopped, and the candle has burned down; add the ribbon, the blue-lace agate, and the remains of the candle wax to the red flannel bag. You can keep this bag on your altar till the full moon, if possible, if not– make sure you put it in a safe place till the time is ripe.
On the night of a full moon, you will seat yourself within a cast circle, and by the light of a white altar candle, you will begin to slowly untie the knots, releasing the magic. As you do so, chant the chant:
“I open now the healing gates;
Good health upon the one who waits,
All the remnants of this spell– the ribbon, bag, stone, candle wax, can be disposed of by either burying it in the earth, or burning everything and scattering the ashes to the wind.
3. Healing Crystal
I love the energy of crystals and stones, and I work with them often. I surround myself, my home, and my very person with this special magic. One very positive thing you can do to generate a warm and healing atmosphere in your home is to choose a crystal that resonates with you, bless it for healing and peace, and place it in an auspicious location in your house or apartment.
First, you’ll have to choose a crystal– and this can be a delightful adventure and project in itself. Browse shops, taking your time. Look at as many as you need to. Hold them, handle them, until a particular crystal seems to call to you. After finding this treasure and purchasing it, you will take it home and bless it: holding the crystal in your hands, you will imbue it with your energy and intentions, feeling it warm as the energy is absorbed. Take your time during this process and enjoy.
You can use an altar to bless this crystal, making the process as ritualistic and detailed as you wish, or you can simply continue with just you and the stone.
If you have a patron god or goddess, call upon their energy to bless this stone, along with the vibrational tone from your own environment and the energy of your body, coupled with the will of your intentions. State aloud and clearly exactly what type of energy you wish this crystal to emanate, focusing on this type of energy, visualizing it moving through your body, your arms, down to your hands and into the crystal itself.
This crystal will sit in a special place, where its energy can spread and radiate throughout your living quarters. Every once in a while, if you feel the need, you can recharge this crystal, or you can cleanse it by holding it beneath running water, leaving it briefly in a bowl of sea salt, letting it sit beneath the moonlight– or in the sunlight– depending upon which energy you wish to work with.
NOTE: After years of being inundated with blog comments and emails from people requesting spell casting, or wanting me to choose a spell for them, this has been added to the bottom of these spell pages. I hope this is helpful when it comes to knowing what to expect, and what you will receive. These FREE spells were placed here for anyone wishing to find a spell they can use on their own, instructions included. These spells can all be found in my books (which are not free), and these pages and these spells can be removed at any time.
- I do not cast spells for people.
- I do not choose a spell for you.
- My Candle Altar Services are not free. They are also not expensive ($21.00 for a single candle vigil, and $61.99 for a triple candle vigil).
The cost for this service covers the supplies I need to do it (candles, herbs, essential oils, cloth bag, shipping materials, and postage). The cost for this service also covers my time (dressing the candles, burning the candles– for as long as it takes, creating the mojo bag, and a trip to the post office to mail it off) My time is important to me. My prices may change at any time, and I reserve the right to refuse this service to anyone if I’m not comfortable with the vigil intention or the individual.

Thank you very much 💜 Blessings!!
I’d like to do this spell on my son … I’ve been told by two psychics I have a strong intuition… my son has congenital intestinal pseudo obstruction , a genetic disease that took my brothers life at 28… my son has a better chance being born this decade but still rare disease… very limited diet and his speech is delayed at 3.5 years old… not sure if I should do the healing spell or banish illness as it’s a congenital disease lifelong but just managing it and can be better than most as each one has its own trajectory… I’ve done one spell in my teenage years for fun as I experimented with Wicca then for a bit … love your input , I saw the craft so I’m worried about the power of 3 and things coming back to me negatively or even worse my son
Not a practicer, very confused and afraid. I guess I’m looking for some input. I’ve always had a gift of knowing things before it happens. I guess you could say I blocked it after seeing a toddler being raped. My grandmother warned me of her exact ‘vision’ to be careful and watch my daughter. That confirmed my vision. I kept her by my side for months. Almost lost my family because they couldn’t understaff it wasn’t them I distrusted. She even slept in bed with me. The night of her 4 birthday she wanted to sleep on the couch with my grandson. I let her. To keep it short, it took us 10 hours, with over 185 volunteers and 3 counties to find her. I knew where she was but no one would listen till an hour before she was found. But I felt her surroundings and felt her life. That was the last time till about a year ago. The other gift is spirits. I was literally driven insane and tormented by a demon not a ghost. Pure evil. After it attached my then 2 yr old son I moved and nothing till about 4yrs. Ago. The voices I hear are in part, part of this gift with warnings, the others curse me call me names ect..I am very much sane. Very spiritual. Don’t see the world in a physical realm rather spiritual. Even as i write this I glanced up and my eyes are drawn to a saying I’ve never noticed before, it says ” follow your heart “. I don’t believe in co incidences. Can you shine some light in my dark confusion plz.
I think you’re frightened by your gift because it heralded a traumatic event to a close relative. I had this same experience with my first psychic vision. It was on Easter Sunday 1969, I was 12 years old, and while we were all relaxing in the living-room after a big holiday meal, I glanced across the room at my Uncle, who was laying on the couch, and I saw him in a casket. He died later that day of a massive heart attack, at the age of 44. After that, for years I would deliberately block images or visions that were trying to come through, and as a child I even thought that I had caused his death by seeing that vision (My grandmother reassured me that this was not so, when I confided in her years later.) After that, I began opening myself up to what was apparently a natural gift; though I have to say that the idea that I might once again see something foreboding in a premonition regarding family and loved ones is still scary.
i have a question.Me and my boyfriend and i argue a lot.to much.i forgive him because i know that its from his past.But im so tired of fighting over absolutely nothing all the time.Is there something i can do magically?meanwhile thanks.cerridwen
Hi, Cerridwen ~ You have to decide if this man is the right man for you. If his behavior really is spurred by something “from his past”, it’s not going to change until he has worked through it, which could include professional therapy. Otherwise, do you like being with him? What positive aspects is he adding to your life? Why are you constantly forgiving him, which is sending a message to him that there is no boundaries with his behavior, and he can act like an ass-hole knowing that you’ll let it go with no repercussions. Frankly, if it were me, I’d exit the relationship.
I have no idea what spell you could do for such a situation, these things take research. You can usually do this on your own with the help of Google and books and research materials from your local book store or Amazon.
I do offer Spell Consultations at my website, The Witch’s Corner, but these are not free:
I’m sorry to hear that I suggest that you find the person who did it because it might never go away and what are the effects that your experiencing?
I have been interested in magick for years now and it has helped me immensley through different times, good and bad. But I do believe that I have a curse on me from someone else(not a nice person and very big into Black Magick). How can I break it?
Does good magic really exist?
Of course it exists. It exists in every healing spell, every spell to bring positive change to someone’s life. It exists in the form of unexplained miracles and connection with the Divine. Good magick can be found everywhere, even in the prayers of people who don’t believe in magick…It’s all “Magick”, honey.
look at my eyes how they change color yellow….my hair then you’ll know how real magick is……
