Middle Earth Magic: Inspired Ideas and Seasonal Spells for Your Enchanted Life

I grew up on a farm in West Virginia and learned much about herbs, trees, animals, gardening, foraging  and so much about nature. I incorporate this wisdom I learned from elders in my family into my spellwork. When I finally left the farm, I majored in Medieval Studies, my attempt to emulate my idol, J.R.R. Tolkien. All these influences led me to my own blended brew which I call "middle earth magic," containing a mix of the modern and the time-tested "old ways."

Spell to Bring New Love into Your Life

Nature is the ultimate creator. At a nearby gardening or hardware store, get an assortment of seed packets to plant newness into your life. If your thumb is not the greenest, try nasturtiums, which are extremely hardy, grow quickly, and will spread to beautify any area. They also reseed themselves, which is a lovely bonus. Light the following candles, charging them with appropriate gems and stones:

Comfort and Joy: Creating a Harmonious Home Environment

I recently read a trend report saying that FOMO, fear of missing out, is over and has been replaced by FOGO, fear of going out, While, I am not sure that is altogether true, I do see a great return to nesting, cocooning together with loved ones to avoid the hard world outside. It is certainly no mystery why the Scandinavian concept of hygge.  What is “hygge?” It is a Danish term defined as “a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being.” Pronounced “hoo-guh,” the word is said to have no direct translation in English, though “cozy” comes close. It derives from a sixteenth-century Norwegian term, hugga, meaning “to comfort” or “to console,” which is related to the English word “hug.” Curling up with books, blankets, mugs of hot cocoa by a fire does sounds absolutely delightful but shutting out the world is not the final answer.

My sincere recommendation is combining an approach of inner strength within yourself as well as buttressing your defenses with protective magic, creating a comfortable home base as well as mastering the art of energetic shields to protect against events and people who are psychic drains. All of which is covered in this book! Creating sanctuary is truly one of the most important things you can do for yourself and will not only bring a long term sense of security for you and your loved ones but will also provide simple cozy joy and homely happiness every single day.

How to Repair Your Aura (Because 2020)

We have all encountered psychic vampires, whether we know it or not. The problem is, your aura will know it because psychic vampires tear away little pieces of your chi, or life force, leaving holes in your aura. You can identify the places that need patching because they will become noticeably cold as you pass a crystal over them. Pick your favorite stone from amethyst, citrine, or any quartz and run it all around you at a distance of about 3 inches. Make note of the cold spots and lay the crystal on those places for about five minutes, until the spot feels warmer. You will have repaired the holes in your etheric body and should being to feel a pleasant sense of renewed wholeness once again.
