Okay so here goes!
For my entry to this week’s Weekly Witchy Challenge I decided to make a little spell jar that’s portable and can be carried with me wherever I go. I have had a little jar with a cork stopper around for a while now and I thought this was the perfect use for it! Here’s what I did.
I tried to find a spell using a combination of protective herbs that I had around, and I was able to find a Pin for this easy recipe. I used salt, a piece of a dried cinnamon stick, rosemary, and ground cloves.
To bless / consecrate the jar itself I followed along with the video here (this was my first time doing that process! As I set up the elemental representations in their proper spots I got a chill down my spine! Loved that ). I wrote “protect me” on a piece of pretty note paper that I have and placed that inside.
I don’t have any small crystal chips for this purpose, and I didn’t want to put a whole quartz crystal in there and seal it away forever, lol! So I got a little creative with representation:
I have these little sticky gems that were clear and emulated rhinestones, and in my mind they were a good representation of clear quartz. I would utilize the real thing to give the spell, and my intentions, a little boost. But this will have to do!
I also placed some beads inside that are black and orange. I chose them according to this chart I found. They represent protection and warding off negative energies (the black), and general success and legal justice (the orange), since my partner is currently involved in a court case that has encountered endless delays and difficulty, and his opponent has taken to attacking me and my character in order to try and make us both look bad, and win favour with the judge on their side. I’ve been wanting to do a banishing spell to ward off some psychic attacks and do a “return to sender” spell but I can’t quite find the right things and the phases of the moon never seem to align with the evenings that I have the time to complete them. So until then, this will have to do
And finally! Here is the jar itself. Below that is a link to a little video where I turn it around to better show you the contents. That was taken prior to sealing.
