“Neither earth, nor water, nor fire, nor air,
Nor any element between,
Neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of night,
Nor sun, nor sprite, nor meddling God,
Nor demon, angel, or denizen of places between spaces,
Shall stay this spell from the swift completion of its appointed purpose…
I bind this spell by might of Three…
By Spirit, Astral and my own Body.”

Ground and center – connect to the core of yourself, your solar plexus chakra. Imagine that this chakra expands, fills your entire body with yellow light. See that light touch your root and your crown. See that light plunge into the earth, connecting the core of you to the core of the earth through the root chakra. See that light plunge into the universe, connecting the core of you to the core of the universe through the crown chakra. See the core of you connect to the core of the universe through the crown chakra. Take three deep breaths. The first breath relaxes the body. The second breath relaxes the mind. The third breath relaxes the soul.
In your mind, imagine that you find yourself in a land of shadows. It’s warm, safe, familiar, even though it’s dark. You know that, today, joining the shadows is not a scary thing, but actually something to be desired. You look down, and find that your toes are turning into shadow, and blowing away. This isn’t a frightening thing, but a comfortable experience… you feel totally at peace. So your feet become shadow, and blow away. Your calves and shins become shadows, and blow away. Your knees and thighs become shadows, and blow away. Your root and womb become pure light, as your hips and buttocks become shadows, and blow away. Your solar plexus becomes pure light, and your body around it, your stomach and back, become shadows, and blow away. Your heart becomes pure light, and your chest and shoulders become shadows, and blow away. Your arms become shadows, and blow away. Your neck becomes a shadow, and blows away, leaving the brilliant blue light of your throat behind. Your face becomes shadow, and blows away, leaving behind your psychic eye, shining light in the darkness. Your crown becomes pure light, and your head becomes shadows, and blows away. Your body is shadows, and is blown away, blending with all the shadows around you, leaving behind only the brilliant light of your chakras, clean and pure.
You find yourself in a deep, dark cave. The ground you walk on is covered with rocks, so many sharp and jagged points that it’s hard to find your way through the cave to the center… and you almost don’t want to proceed… but you know that it is important that you continue. There’s a close feeling, a pressure, it’s warm and moist, uncomfortable. You pick your way through the rocky debris, moving towards a source of light, coming from the ground in the center of the cave. The light is red, the shadows made very dark. You see your own shadow thrown up against the wall, and you are drawn away from the center, to touch the wall where your shadow stands.
The wall is damp, slick and wet when you touch it. You touch the shadow, and feel as if a hand is touching you. When you touch it, you realize that it speaks to you, in that small voice which we all have inside of us. The shadow tells you something about yourself… a negative belief or behavior you need to get rid of. When you accept that it is time to let go of this negativity, the wall gives way and your hand eases into the rock, to allow you to take hold of that negativity. You experience a slight pain, as if your hand had sunk into your own body, and then a slight relief when your hand is released from the rock, now possessing the negativity. Suddenly, a sharp pain makes you look at the hand now released from the rock. As you look at your palm, a large boil rises from it. You know that the boil represents a sour spot in your soul. As it rises from the center of your palm, it crystallizes and becomes a rock – an unopened geode, encompassing the entire self-destructive trait. Within you, you sense the emptiness where that negativity once lived – a gaping hole inside of you, which makes you feel lighter, a relief, and with a sudden revelation you realize that this is true freedom. You walk to the center of the cave, where you find a fissure, filled with lava, the source of the light. You throw the stone shard that is the negativity you need to release, into the lava, shouting “I release you! I am Free!” You watch the stone piece melt, becoming lava. You reach into the lava, and take a handful of the glowing light, and walk back to your shadow on the wall. Once again, you reach out to touch the shadow on the wall, and your hand sinks into the wall. You can feel your hand sinking into you, as you fill the hole in wall, in yourself, with the hot, glowing lava. You fill yourself with white-hot light. You know that what will bloom in the emptiness where darkness once dwelled will be something of the light, something beautiful, something healthy and pure… you will gain a positive trait in exchange for your negativity.
Knowing yourself truly free, feeling lighter and happier, you leave the cave, thanking the elements of earth and fire as you go.
Slowly, you coalesce from shadow into solidity. Your head becomes solid. Your face becomes solid. Your neck becomes solid. Your shoulders and your arms become solid. Your chest becomes solid. Your back becomes solid. Your stomach, your womb, your hips and your buttocks become solid. Your thighs become solid. Your knees become solid. Your shins and your calves become solid. Your feet become solid. Your toes become solid. You are completely solid, full of light. You ground and center. You take three deep breaths. The first breath awakens the soul. The second breath awakens the heart and the mind. The third breath awakens the body. You awaken, and open your eyes, refreshed, relaxed, and free.
All magick is based on need. You need something, so you cast for it. Of course, this does not mean you have to need something to make that something happen, but it does help. No, need-based magick requires you to BELIEVE that you need something. You must suspend your disbelief and become utterly convinced, in that moment, that you need this thing you are creating to be, more than you need the very air you breathe.
Don’t get trapped by the idea that you must have a need before a spell will work. No, you merely need to have the perception of a need – and that is easily created within the mind, as with all perceptions. However, approach this creation of the sensation of need with caution. There is a fine line, which must not be crossed, whereby there is a feeling of need, without there being an actual need. Do not create the loss of the thing you are casting for by becoming too much involved with the need of that thing – need it to already be, without needing it because you don’t have it. One mindset tells the universe to pay attention and convinces It to give you what you’re asking for… the other tells the Universe you actually want to not have it.
A tutelary (also tutelar) is a spirit or deity in the position of a guardian, patron or protector of a particular place, geographic feature, person, lineage, nation, culture or occupation in polytheistic or animist religion. Both tutelary and tutelar can be used as either a noun or an adjective. An analogous concept in Christianity is the patron saint, or to a lesser degree, guardian angel.

Pierre A. Riffard defines a tutelary spirit as either a tutelary genius (present ever since birth) or a protecting spirit (that can help in times of trouble) or a familiar spirit (a mate, who is a double of self, even though totally different).
a) A tutelary genius is a strictly personal deity or demon who has presided over the destiny of every man or woman, ever since birth, until the time of his or her death, when the spirit eventually disappears. Since childhood Socrates had been hearing the voice of his personal spirit or daimonion, prohibiting him doing things. "You have often heard me speak of an oracle or sign which comes to me, and is the divinity which Meletus ridicules in the indictment. This sign I have had ever since I was a child. The sign is a voice which comes to me and always forbids me to do something which I am going to do, but never commands me to do anything, and this is what stands in the way of my being a politician" (Plato, Apology of Socrates, 40 b).
b) The protecting spirit (guardian spirit, spirit helper) is a force, a soul, or a deity that helps the shaman or the magician. It can be an animal, a plant, a mineral or the spirit of ancestors. It can either be collective or individual. According to Michael Harner (The Sound of Rushing Water, 1968), among the Jivaro (Shuar people), "the tsentsak, these spirit helpers, or darts, are the main supernatural forces believed to cause illness and death in daily life. To the non-shaman they are normally invisible, and even shamans can perceive them only under the influence of natema [a hallucinogenic drink]. Shamans send those spirit helpers into the victims bodies to make them ill or to kill them. At other times, they may suck spirits sent by enemy shamans from the bodies of tribesmen suffering from witchcraft induced illness. The spirit helpers also form shields that protect their shaman masters from attacks. According to Jivaro concepts, each tsentsak has a natural and supernatural aspect. The magical darts natural aspect is that of an ordinary material object as seen without drinking the drug natema. But the supernatural and true aspect of the tsentsak is revealed to the shaman by taking natema. When he does this, the magical darts appear in new forms as demons and with new names. In their supernatural aspects, the tsentsak are not simply objects but spirit helpers in various forms, such as giant butterflies, jaguars, or monkeys, who actively assist the shaman in his tasks."
c) A familiar spirit is the double, the alter-ego of an individual. It does not look like the individual concerned. Even though it may have an independent life of its own it remains closely linked to the individual. The familiar spirit can be an animal, also called "familiar pet". A witch can have a black cat, or a toad, an owl, with which she exchanges information and signs. The medicine-man, in Australian aboriginal societies, also has his familiar spirit (his personal totem), which can be a snake, for instance. "A usual method, or explanation, is that the medicine man sends his ‘familiar spirit’ (his assistant totem, spirit-dog, spirit-child or whatever the form may be) to gather the information. While this is occurring, the man himself is in a state of receptivity, in sleep or trance. In modern phraseology [spiritism], his ‘familiar spirit’ would be the control [control spirit]" (A. P. Elkin, Aboriginal men of high degree, 1945, 48).
Mircea Eliade : "The Goldi [Nanai people in Siberia] clearly distinguish between the tutelary spirit (ayami), which chooses the shaman, and the helping spirits (syven), which are subordinate to it and are granted to the shaman by the ayami itself. According to Sternberg the Goldi explain the relations between the shaman and his ayami by a complex sexual emotion. Here is the report of a Goldi shaman.
‘Once I was asleep on my sick-bed, when a spirit approached me. It was a very beautiful woman. Her figure was very slight, she was no more than half an arshin (71 cm.) tall. Her face and attire were quite as those of one of our Gold women… She said: ‘I am the ayami of your ancestors, the Shamans. I taught them shamaning. Now I am going to teach you… I love you, I have no husband now, you will be my husband and I shall be a wife unto you. I shall give you assistant spirits. You are to heal with their aid, and I shall teach and help you myself…’ Sometimes she comes under the aspect of an old woman, and sometimes under that of a wolf, so she is terrible to look at. Sometimes she comes as a winged tiger… She has given me three assistants-the jarga (the panther), the doonto (the bear) and the amba (the tiger). They come to me in my dreams, and appear whenever I summon them while shamaning. If one of them refuses to come, the ayami makes them obey, but, they say, there are some who do not obey even the ayami. When I am shamaning, the ayami and the assistant spirits are possessing me; whether big or small, they penetrate me, as smoke or vapour would. When the ayami is within me, it is she who speaks through my mouth, and she does everything herself’."

Tutelary deities who guard and preserve a place or a person are fundamental to ancient Roman religion. The tutelary deity of an individual was his Genius, or that of a woman her Juno. In the Imperial era, the Genius of the Emperor was a focus of Imperial cult. An emperor might also adopt a major deity as his personal patron or tutelary, as Augustus did Apollo. Precedents for claiming the personal protection of a deity were established in the Republican era, when for instance the Roman dictator Sulla advertised the goddess Victory as his tutelary by holding public games (ludi) in her honor.
Each town or city had one or more tutelary deities, whose protection was considered particularly vital in time of war and siege. Rome itself was protected by a goddess whose name was to be kept ritually secret on pain of death (for a supposed case, see Quintus Valerius Soranus). The Capitoline Triad of Juno, Jupiter, and Minerva were also tutelaries of Rome. The Italic towns had their own tutelary deities. Juno often had this function, as at the Latin town of Lanuvium and the Etruscan city of Veii, and was often housed in an especially grand temple on the arx (citadel) or other prominent or central location. The tutelary deity of Praeneste was Fortuna, whose oracle was renowned. The Roman ritual of evocatio was premised on the belief that a town could be made vulnerable to military defeat if the power of the tutelary deity were diverted outside the city, perhaps by the offer of superior cult at Rome. The depiction of some goddesses such as the Magna Mater (Cybele) as "tower-crowned" represents their capacity to preserve the city. A town in the provinces might adopt a deity from within the Roman religious sphere to serve as its guardian, or syncretize its own tutelary with such; for instance, a community within the civitas of the Remi in Gaul adopted Apollo as its tutelary, and at the capital of the Remi (present-day Reims), the tutelary was Mars Camulus.
Lararium depicting tutelary deities of the house: the ancestral Genius (center) flanked by two Lares, with a guardian serpent below
Tutelary deities were also attached to sites of a much smaller scale, such as storerooms, crossroads, and granaries. Each Roman home had a set of protective deities: the Lar or Lares of the household or familia, whose shrine was a lararium; the Penates who guarded the storeroom (penus) of the innermost part of the house; Vesta, whose sacred site in each house was the hearth; and the Genius of the paterfamilias, the head of household. The poet Martial lists the tutelary deities who watch over various aspects of his farm. The architecture of a granary (horreum) featured niches for images of the tutelary deities, who might include the genius loci or guardian spirit of the site, Hercules, Silvanus, Fortuna Conservatrix ("Fortuna the Preserver") and in the Greek East Aphrodite and Agathe Tyche.
The Lares Compitales were the tutelary gods of a neighborhood (vicus), each of which had a compitum (shrine) devoted to these. During the Republic, the cult of local or neighborhood tutelaries sometimes became rallying points for political and social unrest.
Chinese folk religion, both past and present, includes a myriad of tutelary deities. Exceptional individuals may become deified after death. Guan Yu is a well-known tutelary from the Three Kingdoms period.
In Korean shamanism, jangseung and sotdae were placed at the edge of villages to frighten off demons. They were also worshiped as deities.
In Shinto, the spirits, or kami, which give life to human bodies come from nature and return to it after death. Ancestors are therefore themselves tutelaries to be worshiped.
In Hinduism, tutelary deities are known as ishta-devata and Kuldevi or Kuldevta. Devas can also be seen as tutelary. Shiva is patron of yogis and renunciants.
Thai provincial capitals have tutelary city pillars and palladiums.
Tibetan Buddhism has yidams as tutelary. Dakini is the patron of those who seek knowledge.
Native American religion, (see also Animism, Shamanism) has extensive and varied systems of zoomorphic tutelaries, (also known as power animals). In Mesoamerica these tutelary power animals are called Nagual in the Aztec language and Uay in the Maya language.
In many of the animistic African religions, tutelaries appear in a variety of forms. The Binou cult of the Dogon people of Mali have totems around their villages.

We all have our own ways of getting around Astral – as many denizens as there are, are there methods to travel. I have a sister who passes through Void to get where she’s going. If you were able to pass through the space OUTSIDE space, the space that particles from atoms blink to when they’re not here, that would be how she moves.
If you’ve ever seen Mary Poppins, and remember the scene where they traveled through a chalk picture on the pavement, if you remember the end sequence, when the rain hit the drawings and everything melted into colorful streaks, that would be what traveling with me looks like. Like everything melted… because I travel through time and space at the same time, you see streaks of light that are either paused, or hurried up.
I call it "fetching" because that’s what I do… I drop into this place where there is no time, but all time is before me, I choose the moment and the place, I and reinsert myself there, almost in a pulling motion – I pull time and space to me, and pull myself to the moment I want.
It’s being in all places at once, in all times at once, and then deliberately choosing to remove my consciousness from one moment and place it in another. Of course, I stay connected to it all, and can even have a broad awareness if needed, but mostly I’m just focusing on the time I want in front of me, the place I want to experience.
Do you travel the Astral, in dreams, mediations, or another way? How do you travel?
A Prayer to Themis
By Willow Myst (slightly adapted)
Themis, great Goddess of Justice, I thank you for your presence with me every day.
Help me to continue to focus my thoughts on what I wish to create in my life.
Let me be reminded of how my actions affect not only me, but also all of creation.
Because of your continual guidance, I am aware of both sides of issues,
I unconditionally accept that there is more than one way to view the world,
And I take the steps necessary to reach a state of equilibrium.
Your power to cocreate balance, order and harmony in my life
Brings me to peace with my world and myself.
I graciously accept your presence in my life.
Guide me. Bless me. Light up my life with your divine presence.
A Prayer to Hades
Hades, Great God of the Dead, I need to feel Your presence.
I need to be reminded of You.
Assist me to remember Your lessons;
That Death is not something to fear, nor the ultimate loss,
That in the end, it is the cessation of pain,
And the return to me all that was lost.
Let me remember also that wealth is not merely the money in my pocket,
But is a life well lived, the friends I have, the kindness of my heart.
Because of your presence in my life, I have discovered what really matters,
And I strive to live a life that shows those important ideas to others.
Your power to cocreate wealth, love, and a life wellspent
Brings me to peace with my world and myself.
Thank you for showing me the key to my hidden riches.
Guide me. Bless me. Light up my life with your divine presence.
By Scott Cunningham (slightly adapted)
O Gracious Goddess,
O Great God,
I now enter the realm of dreams.
Weave now, if You will, a web of protective light around me.
Guard both my sleeping form and my spirit.
Watch over me
Until the sun once again
Rules the Earth.
O Great Goddess,
O Gracious God,
Be with me through the night.
Lend me health, strength and love always.
Assist me with the challenges ahead.
Share Your divine wisdom.
Remind me to respect all things.
Remind me that the greatest power of all is love.
NOTE: Do this entire exercise once a day for at least one week. After that first week is up, do the full ritual once a week, and as a daily exercise, ask your guides which parts of the ritual you need to do each day – for example… Having done the full exercise every day for one week, I sit down with my guides and ask them, "Do I need to do the balls of light? Do I need to do the vibrational healing? Do I need to connect my chakras – and if so, which ones? Do I need to balance the energies between my chakras, and if so, which chakras should I work on? Do I need to do a heavy cleansing and clearing of my chakras today? Do I need to work on raising my vibrations? Do I need to re-shield my chakras or my auric body?" The answers to these questions will dictate what I do that day.
I have also found that grounding and centering before and after each section of this exercise makes it much more efficient.
Bright blessings… and Good Luck – I hope you find this ritual useful in your healing and growing.
Soak in the bath for about five minutes before beginning the ritual cleansing. Use this time to connect yourself to the Vibrational Healing Universal Love Light ("I am now connecting to the Vibrational Healing Universal Lovelight with unconditional love.") (Yes, you really do have to say it that way.)
Ground and center.
While in the bath, use vibrational healing (for this, use the mantra Hamsaha Sohum). Start at the crown chakra, and work your way down, using the mantra 27 times per chakra, then drawing the energy downwards with four fingers to the next chakra 9 times using the mantra Shreem.
To reiterate, connect to the energy, place your left hand on your stomach over your belly button, place your right hand on your crown with your middle finger in the depression at the top of your skull, circle your middle finger clockwise saying Hamsaha Sohum 27 times, then using four fingers draw the energy down nine times to your third eye while saying Shreem each time you draw the energy down. Then cup your third eye with your right hand, palm over the gap between your eyebrows, fingers pointing towards the top of your forehead (I find that the heel of my hand fits perfectly between my eyes, resting on the very top of my nose), and say Hamsaha Sohum 27 times, then draw the energy down with Shreem to your throat chakra, move your right hand sideways back and forth over your throat, caressing the front of your throat with your fingers. When working on the heart chakras, circle clockwise from shoulder to shoulder, down to the edge of your rib cage with your right hand while saying the first mantra. For the solar plexus, cup the area as if you’re pregnant and resting your hand on the top of your expanded womb. When doing the sacral plexus, again cup your womb as if you were pregnant and holding the bottom of your expanded womb… for the sacral plexus chakra you may find that moving in clockwise circles around the area including your hips is helpful. For the root chakra, use your middle finger. Circulate clockwise, pressing upwards and inwards. Keep your left hand over your bellybutton throughout the whole exercise – you will have to lift it up when you draw the energy from your solar plexus to your sacral plexus, but that is the only time you should lift it up.
Ground and center.
When you have done this daily for one week, when you have completed Hamsaha Sohum AND Shreem, follow this with Kleem, drawing energy downwards from crown to root nine times using five fingers.
Ground and center.
When you are finished with your vibrational healing, reach towards the light you have connected to for this process and draw out of that stream of light a large white ball of energy. Draw this down into your crown and through all your chakras and the main channel that connects them all together, and out your feet and into the ground. Allow the ball of light to (spinning clockwise) cleanse and clear each chakra and channel as it moves through you. Now do the same exercise only draw the energy ball from the earth, up through your feet and out your crown. Ground both balls of light outside of you (do not draw them back inside you in order to ground them.)
Ground and center.
Drain the bath completely before getting out of the tub.
The next exercise is to reconnect all your chakras to each other, balance the energy flowing through them all, do a deep cleansing to clear them all of excess energy, blockages, and unnecessary connections, raise their vibrations and then shield them all.
You have twelve chakras:

For this exercise, you will need a pendulum, dowsing rods, tarot cards that you will ONLY use for chakra work, or some other form of divination that allows you to ask yes or no questions, and can inform you when the task you are working is completed. You will also need the assistance of your guides so before beginning be sure to ask for their presence during your cleansing/healing work.
Ground and center.
First connect to your root chakra. Say "I am now connecting to my root chakra. I am now releasing all excess energy from my root chakra back into the universe with unconditional love. I am now releasing all blockages from my root chakra back into the universe with unconditional love. I am now releasing all unwanted and unnecessary connections from my root chakra back into the universe with unconditional love." Do this for all twelve chakras, in this order: Root, sacral, solar, heart a, heart b, throat, third eye, crown, 8th chakra (six inches below root), 9th chakra (six inches above crown), 10th and 11th chakras (right and left palms), and the 12th chakra (12 inches below root). Use your dowsing rods to confirm that each task is completed before moving on to the next task or the next chakra. I find that cupping the energy you are releasing with your hands, raising your hands to your mouth and blowing the energy up and out towards the universe and away from yourself is very effective as a physical visualization.
Ground and center.
You will continue to use this same order for the following processes: reconnecting, balancing, cleansing, clearing, raising the vibration, and shielding, grounding and centering after each process.
Sink into the chakra you are going to work on – think of it as a new way to center. Once you are in the chakra, visualize connections, really FEEL those connections, feel the energy flowing, from that chakra to other chakras and back again, as you make them.
Say: "I am now connecting to my root chakra. I am now connecting my root chakra to my sacral plexus chakra. I am now connecting my root chakra to my solar plexus chakra. I am now connecting my root chakra to my green heart chakra. I am now connecting my root chakra to my rose heart chakra. I am now connecting my root chakra to my throat chakra. I am now connecting my root chakra to my third eye chakra. I am now connecting my root chakra to my crown chakra. I am now connecting my root chakra to my 8th chakra. I am now connecting my root chakra to my 9th chakra. I am now connecting my root chakra to my right palm chakra. I am now connecting my root chakra to my left palm chakra. I am now connecting my root chakra to my 12th chakra. I am now connecting my root chakra to all my minor chakras." Again use your dowsing rods to confirm that each task is completed before moving on to the next stage.
Repeat this connection phase with each of your 12 chakras and your minor chakras. Remember to sink into each chakra before beginning, and to visualize and FEEL the connections as you make them.
Ground and center.
Now, do exactly the same thing that you did with the connections, only replace the word "connecting" with the word "balancing." Again, remember to sink into the chakra you are working on, and really FEEL the energy balancing between each chakra. This exercise will also help to clear the nadis or meridians, the channels between each chakra. If you feel it is necessary, make a separate exercise to purify the nadis. The three most important of these channels are the Sushumna, Ida, and Pingala nadis. Pingala regulates flow in the left side of the body. Ida regulates energy flowing on the right side. Sushumna is the central channel between the twelve major chakras that carries kundalini energy from the Root to the Crown.

Now do exactly the same thing as before, only use the words "Cleansing and Clearing." Use the white light visualization if this helps. Remember to sink into each chakra, cleaning them from the inside out, whereas before, you were cleaning from the outside in.
Ground and center.
Again, just as before, but this time use the words "Raising the vibrations." See the outer lining of the chakra you are working on gain a golden ring around it. See your aura gain a golden glow. At this time you may also like to raise kundalini energy from the root to the crown in the same way.
Ground and center.
And finally, use the word "Shielding." Visualize the shields on each chakra, and visualize a shield over your entire aura. Say "Hreem" three times for each chakra shield, and when you shield your entire aura, shield from the bottom up, using the same mantra, three times on the left foot, three times in the middle, three times on the right foot, three times on the left of your waist, three times at your front, three times to the right side of your waist, three times to your back, three times to your left shoulder, three times to your head, and three times to your right shoulder. Draw this yantra symbol over the area you are working on, each time you say Hreem.
Ground and center.
Additional Note: You will be VERY bright when you are finished with the ritual, but the shield will dim that down so you don’t blind people who Look at you. Also, don’t be surprised if the shield makes you feel like you’re walking inside a ball. You are. It’s OK.
