Day Two, Spell Two

Okay so today is day two and time for a healing spell. I know I just recently posted this spell but I hadn't actually done it. And since my precious dog Zan is not feeling to well with all the cold and dampness this seemed appropriate to try.

Finnish Healing Spell
Cure an Illness Spell
Color of the day: Scarlet
Incense of the day: Maple

The epic poem, Kalevala, is celebrated by the Finns this day with parades and readings from the poem. The Kalevala recounts a battle of wits between three wizard brothers and the witch goddess, Louhi. It is a treasure trove of ancient shamanistic practices including the following healing spell. For this ritual, stand in the east and call in the element of air. Ask in all humility for assistance. Light a blue candle and a stick of sandalwood incense as an offering to the element. Now say:

Vanish into the sky!
Pain, fly up into the air.
Burning vapor,
Rise up into the air!
So that the wind may take thee away.
So that the storm may chase thee to far places.
Where neither Sun nor Moon gives light.
Where no hot wind burns the flesh.

Thank the element of air, and let the candle burn down. As with all magic, in addition to this spell, it is essential that you have done everything possible in the physical realm to aid the healing

Okay made a couple of additions/changes to this one. Number one all the writing has worn off of my incense bags so not sure what I used but the type of incense did not seem as important as the offering and the ability to float into and up into the air.

Also I called upon the four directions and all four elements, it felt more proper to me. I realize that it is the air you are asking to carry away the sickness, but even just reading the spell it did not feel right to not use all four. We will see how it goes.

I have to say that having started this project and looking for interesting spells to do it is hard to limit myself to one spell. May have to sneak in a couple. So Mote It Be.
