Hey all! Last night, feeling the need for some spell craft, I decided to carry out a new spell for something I felt I needed the most at this time. Power. During the meditation and visualization for this ritual I sneezed, and this was my first sign that the spell was working. I strongly associate sneezing with the gaining of power where you mind is starting to have more of an effect on the world around you. After letting the candle burn at the end for one hour, I felt a noticeable increase in power that filled me over the course of about 6 seconds, and after this, I felt empowered for the rest of the night, and am sure the power will stay in effect. Also, it is worth mentioning that a book I’ve been waiting for arrived this morning, early, the night after my ritual.
Being pleased with the results, I thought I would share in case anyone else would like to try it.
Note on the entities: Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal are each names that correspond to the Diablo universe. To me however, they are much more. The true names of these beings is unknown to me, I use the names above to represent them to myself. They are the three Lords of Hell and take orders directly from God. I am a Wiccan who believes in the other Gods, but I also decided that would be foolish to toss out my Christianity entirely rather than incorporate it in my practice. Lilith for example, works under these three in the respective lore.
This spell takes some minor preparation.
You will need three small triangular pieces of plain white paper. (I just cut the corners off a piece of printer paper)
A pen to write on the papers. Preferably black ink.
Purple candle and lighter
Mortar (A cauldron or another container would fine, even a cup)
Flower petals (use a flower that you feel will empower you)
Offering dish and offering (I used a muffin)
Note: If you don’t have any of the ingredients, such as poppy seeds, I’m sure a substitute would work fine, just go with something that feels empowering in a certain sense. A favorite pen could be used if you don’t have a wand.
I feel its best if you dawn your magickal attire for the preparation which is simple.
Cut three small triangular pieces of paper out and write one of these three names on each one specifically in this order: Diablo, Mephisto, and Baal. Draw a triangle on the reverse side of these papers. For Diablo’s triangle, highlight the lower right point by circling it. For Mephisto, circle the lower left. Baal? He’s the top so circle it. Place the slips close at hand on your altar. Place the other ingredients on your altar as well, and place your offering in the dish. Have your chant and invocation close at hand and make sure you have your lighter!
Conducting the Spell
Step 1: Cast a circle in your preferred method.
Step 2: Call the elements.
Step 3: Say a planetary Invocation for whichever day/night you are conducting the spell. I get mine from a book, although many can be found online.
Step 4: Light the purple candle, which should be placed in a central location.
Step 5: Sprinkle your salt around the candle, or in it’s dish.
Step 6: Sprinkle flower petals around candle.
Step 7: Sprinkle your poppy seeds around the candle next.
Step 8: Take the first slip (Diablo) and fold it twice, as you fold it say “I call upon the power of Diablo”. Place the folded paper in the mortar.
Step 9: Fold the second slip twice (Mephisto) saying “I call upon the power of Mephisto”. Place it in the mortar.
Step 10: Fold the third paper twice (Baal) saying “I call upon the power of Baal”. Place in mortar.
Step 11: Now for this chant which you will want to say three times.
Here now the words
of the witches
The secrets we hid
in the night,
The oldest of gods
are invoked here,
The great work of
magic is sought…
…In this night and
in this hour,
We call upon the
Step 12: Use your wand to direct energy from the elements into the candle. I generally do a rein in motion with my wand, kind of like a little whirl (3 whirls to be exact) over each candle for each element clockwise starting with air, and then finally direct the energy into the candle by tapping it with the end of the wand. I carry this out three times, so three candle taps.
Step 13: Meditate and visualize. Take both hands and stick your thumbs out so they form an L-shape. Now bring your hands together so that the tips of your thumbs are touching each other and your index fingers are touching at the top. Hold your hands in this position flat with the surface of the Earth as you visualize. Stare at a point on the purple candle and visualize yourself in power. Try not to adjust your sight. You will begin to see auras and the flickering of the candles on your altar will be highly visible. Carry out this visualization for 10 minutes. This will really soak the ritual into your mind.
Step 14: Thank and dismiss elements.
Step 15: Close the circle.
Finally Let the candle burn for one hour and try to be exact. Leave the offering in the dish overnight and remove it the next day. It’s alright to just blow out the candle. Don’t forget to copy the results of the spell in your BoS.
I hope you enjoyed my spell! Good luck my fellow Magi with your endeavors!
