|A foundational component of a traditional witch's praxis is that of oneiric (dream) travel. One potential danger of this type of work is the gradual inability to remain grounded and focused. For this reason, it can be useful to create a charm whose purpose is to act as a physical anchor that can assist us in coming back from in between the worlds after our astral travels as well as align our altars toward the manifestation of our magical workings.
For this spell you will need:
* Some black thread
* A piece of iron, such as a nail or railroad spike
* Patchouli oil
* Some sea salt
Ground and center. Wind the thread around the iron while you chant:
"Iron in the planet's heart,
Iron in my blood and bones."
Continue until a significant portion of the iron is covered in thread. Anoint with the oil and place in a circle of salt for seven days. Keep this charm on your altar or carry it with you. Hold it after engaging in heavy astral or trance work or whenever you are feeling ungrounded or spacey.
