A Tree Spell and Sea Spell

This article was written by Scott Cunningham
posted under Pagan

In honor of the June 26th birthday of one of Llewellyn's most beloved authors, the late Scott Cunningham, we have included two spells from his book Earth Power: Techniques of Natural Magic.

A TREE SPELL

When you have found a tree to work magic with, take a large leaf, a charcoal-tipped stick, a piece of flexible vine or natural-fiber cord, and a dime to the tree.

Sitting beneath it, write or draw a symbol of your need with the stick.

Rise and walk nine times around the tree clockwise, saying the following or similar words:

Ancient one of the ancient earth,
older than time can tell,
grant me the power at your command
to charge my magic spell.


Repeat as often as necessary until you have walked nine times around the tree.

When finished, tie the leaf around the trunk as tightly as you can with the vine. If this isn’t possible, find a tie it on there.

When you are sure that the leaf is secure, take the dime and bury it at the foot of the tree in the earth in payment for its help. Now leave the area and let the tree to its work.

If, when you return to the tree, the leaf is gone–don’t worry. The forces have already been set in motion.



A SEA SPELL

This is an all-purpose spell.

Go to the seashore when the tide has begun to rise (after low tide but before high). Upon the sand just above the line where the waves are breaking, draw a circle about one foot in diameter with your fingers.

Next, draw a rune or image of your need within the circle you’ve formed. As you draw it, visualize blue liquid flame striking the sand where your finger digs into it. When the figure is complete, see the power resting within the furrows on the wet sand like phosphorescent water in a perfect pattern of your need. Firmly visualize.

Now, step back and wait for the waves to rise and wash away your bidding.

One day, while performing this spell on the beach during a light rain, I stood waiting for the wave to wash it away. As it did, I felt a bolt of energy shoot up from the rune I’d sketched on the sand and hit me in the chest. It was an actual physical sensation. The energy went forth and did indeed bring into manifestation my need.
