It is true that there is one type of spell I really like the best of all the really, REALLY old and primal ones.
For how long have human beings made fires, and looked into the flames, watched the smoke ascend to the heavens, and send their prayers, their fantasies, hopes and dreams to rise and be heard?
It is a truly extraordinary sensation to tap into this type of thing, an overwhelming powerfield of those ages that makes magic today, and real, and so very much more than just messing around with a little love spell, now and then.
Essentially, this is extremely simple, like so many of the really ancient and primal magic rituals are; but in practice, and if it is done with the ideal frame of mind, there’s very little that could be more powerful, or more deep.
All you need to perform the early fire spells is any type of secure surface, or container; it could be anything at all, even a bowl filled with sand, and it does not have to be big, or even outdoors.
The fire bowl I use for table top fire magical at night is no larger than a cereal bowl, made of brass and stands on three legs, which helps to not burn off the table. In case you’ve got a smoke detector in the home, it would be a fantastic idea to turn it off prior to starting. There is also merit in opening a window, for how else will the smoke rise to the skies and take your prayers, or intent?
Next, we need something to burn.
I like to collect twigs from specific trees, tiny little pieces which dry quickly and burn easily. Different kinds of wood flavour the smoke otherwise, and it’s fascinating to experiment and find out for yourself how the aromas and flavours of different forests affect your mood and visions.
We may then also consider to add some herbs to burn – sage, rosemary, bay leaves, lavender, pine needles, leaves from a eucalyptus tree – the choice is truly completely endless. I would suggest to start with what you can find naturally in your environment, be this out of doors, in your garden, or your local grocerystore, which often sells different kinds of herbs.
If you’re a more experienced magician, then you can start to match the wood you burn and the herbs you add to your smoke effect to the use of the charm, but actually, for that true primal feel it isn’t necessary at all.
Casting Instructions for ‘Ancient Fire Spells’
Fire Spell Step 1:
Simply light the fire, look into the flames and consider what you want to say to the Gods, or what you would ask of them. Think about it deeply and let the flames hypnotise you.
Fire Spell Step 2:
With a small fire in a bowl, the flames will burn out soon enough, then you’ve got glowing embers. It is at that point you add the herbs, and it is then that the smoke will begin to rise powerfully, and thats when you say your intent or state your prayer.
You could say, for example:
Hear me, wise ones, old ones, those who dwell above;
Hear my call and listen to my voice, hear my prayer:
Send to me the blessings of joy, of happiness, and of love.
I prefer if you would let words simply come to you as you’re looking into the flames and thinking about what it was that you wanted. When things come from the center, and at the moment, thats the most effective state for magic there is.
Fire Spell Step 3:
Basically, thats all you’ve got to do.
If you wanted to, you could add an offering to the powers that be as a sign of respect and gratitude, such as burning some special herbs like tobacco; some people like to burn a bank note but Im not in favour of this, personally; some folks add a gift of a few drops of rose oil, frankincense or perhaps liquor for the offering.
This is an optional step because the gift that you gave was to light the fire in the first place and make contact with the powers that be; they appreciate your sincere attention more than anything, and a meaningful, Thank you for listening in the end or words to that effect is quite enough to seal the spell.
