Poppet Magic Healing Spell
Toxic emotions can bring on health concerns. It 
is essential to clear the air after any kind of 
argument or misunderstanding. One way to clear the 
air is by using poppet magic. For this, go to a 
craft store and buy a small rag doll without 
features or hair. Pin to the doll the name of the 
person who has been causing you problems, as well as 
his or her astrological sign on the doll’s chest, 
near the area of the heart. If you have a picture 
of the person, all the better; you can scan the 
image and pin it to the doll’s face. Light a white 
candle, saying: "Peace we make, disquiet friend. 
With this prick our troubles end. Peace is the 
way. Love is the power. Our problems flee this very 
hour. Serenity, that is the key. Heal our love. 
So mote it be."

Healing Ritual #1 To promote good health, during the seventh hour after sunrise grind in a mortar two teaspoons lavender flower and one teaspoon each of thyme, allspice, coriander seed, and willow leaf, saying: “I charge you by the Sun and the Moon, on this day of high energy and in this hour of healing, to release your powers into my work!” Rub peppermint oil on a blue votive candle and inscribe with these symbols, saying: “Jupiter for health, Beorc for the Goddess, Water for fluids, Tyr for victory, Os for the God, and Sigel to direct the healing energy.” Light the candle in a cauldron. Add the herbal mixture, and say: “ I call upon the divine to hasten my healing, bringing victory over the watery confusion in my body; with healing herbal energies released to my aid, cast aside my sickly imbalance I bid thee. So mote it be!” Burn one hour, snuff, and bury the remains. by Ann Moura Llewellyn's Spell-a-Day 12/16/01
Healing Ritual #2 Items Used: A photograph of the person to be healed. A green candle A jade ring (or other green healing stone) some red cotton thread A drawing of the afflicted area of the body tea tree oil a pinch of dried lavender a small green cloth pouch a glass of water Special note: If the illness has to do with cancer or another type of tumor then this will be a type of banishing and you might want to substitute black for green in this spell. Additionally you might want to use jet or onyx instead of jade. This is best performed during a waxing moon (or waning, if it is for banishing). Ground and center. Breathe deep and feel your power. If you work with any Gods or Goddesses that you are particularly attuned to, especially if healing is among their attributes, feel their presence now. Hold the glass of water in both hands and feel your power, and that of the Gods, flowing into and through you. Feel it flow into the water and "see" it begin to glow with the power of healing. Say something like: "Healing flows into this water, flowing from Her sacred well." Know that the water will hold this charge until it is used. Place the cup aside for now. Hold the candle and focus on the concept of health. You may wish to etch something on it like " is now healed." Rub some of the tea tree oil onto it. Put it in a holder and set it aside. Do the same with the ring, placing it over the end of the candle so that it rests on it, suspended. Sprinkle some of the water around the candleholder in a clockwise circle (counter-clockwise if you are banishing). Hold the drawing of the afflicted area. Use your feeling-sense to delve into the area of the person's body and feel the quality of energy there. If you imagine that it is too hot, for example, you may wish to imagine it cooling; if it is to active, you may try calming it down. Take the tea tree oil and draw a pentagram over the afflicted area with your fingers. Light the candle and say: "I call forth light, in the dark of night, to heal the blight, with strength and with might." Burn the drawing from the candle flame and put the ashes in the green pouch along with a pinch of lavender. Burn some of the lavender and allow the smoke to waft over the photograph as you focus on it. See the person as surrounded by a green aura of healing (or perhaps purple, or cobalt blue for a banishing). "Feel" that they are healthy, happy, and strong. If they had a broken leg, "see" them as running on perfectly strong legs; if a problem with their lungs, see them breathing effortlessly, etc. Allow your sense of their health and newfound strength to permeate the photograph. You may wish to chant something like: " you are healed. you are strong." You might wish to repeat this chant until you have achieved a sense of deep trance. When you are in a deep state of trance and have felt that the healing power has been transferred to the person, then roll up the photograph and tie it with the thread. Say: "Surrounded by a ring of jade, encircled by the healing waters, bound together by cord of blood, strength restored and life renewed." Burn the photograph, releasing the power into the universe. Mix the resulting ashes with the ashes from the drawing and place inside the green pouch. Drink the water feeling it refresh and renew you, bringing you healing energy, keeping you cleansed. Allow the candle to burn completely out. Retrieve the ring and place inside the pouch along with the ashes. Keep this hidden until the full moon (or dark moon for a banishing) at which time it should be given to the subject of this healing. If this is not possible then it should be worn by a friend or loved one as a reminder of the healing energy.
