Some have been enjoying my latest spell work, published on my other blog, Fragments, where I muse about life, people, animals, and places. I find particular pleasure in creating magical objects that are useful. I like to allow myself to be seized by the cards. Put my words in the service of my mind, but let my soul sing the image. So here is In the Name of Love, a spell made for a specific ritual. Enjoy!

. . . . . .

Love in symmetry is a mysterious dance. A dance of stars. The crossing hearts are marking the spot, fetching the X. The coup de grâce on behalf of the cross blows the breath saying: Let there be light and love and a strong body.

The spell be impaled.

    The paper is the memory of bone as the ink stains blood and print.

    I love how the movement of breath is visible from the dent in the paper to the small lines showing the movement from air to water. The lower part is fixed by the cross and the upper shows the breath blowing away again.

    The Black Tourmaline with its abundance of Iron, the same Iron that gives our Blood its redness, transporting our very breath is a fantastic basis and bones to root to the earth and all who have been.

    I marvel at the consistent beauty of this arrangement.

    Aurora Díaz Fernández: Evocative! Are you using it for ritual, or just for contemplation and meditate on the duality of love?

    Aurora Díaz Fernández: Oh, It left me breathless! Camelia, sometimes I make what I call “seals” in Spanish, “sellos arcanos”. I use tarot for that. Use them for ritual or contemplation as to received the vibration of the image. What I like of yours is the simplicity and directness. I have to learn to read those cards.

    Camelia Elias: It’s not difficult. And you can always allow yourself to be seized by the cards. Put your words in the service of your mind, but let your soul sing the image.

    Protection spells deal directly with Force and Power Spells.
    These spells create a shield around you which prohibits evil magics from harming you (or whoever you cast the spell on).
    When these spells are cast incorrectly nothing happens.
