An Enchanted Sleep

Last night I didn’t sleep well at all. It’s a strange thing. I didn’t toss and turn, and I don’t remember having any nightmares, I just woke up this morning feeling like I haven’t slept at all. So let’s go over a few things I’ll be doing this evening, a few ideas to try to make sure exactly this doesn’t happen to you.

One way to insure a restful night’s sleep is to make a crystal grid around the corners of your bed. They can be quartz, or selenite, or any other stone you find to be calming or protective or banishing. I use a selenite tower, a large hunk of raw rose quartz, a piece of white jade, plain quarts points, and an obsidian orb I put on my head board. Climb into bed and put the last stone in place. This will insure that any negative forces stay out, as well as providing a healing energy to relieve stress and instill calm, clear-headed thoughts. If you sleep with a partner, and don’t want to spell them as well, you can simply but two crystals on outer edges of the middle of the bed, thus giving you a separate grid.

If your mind is simply wandering and you can’t seem to settle down, perhaps you should try burning some incense. If you insure that is in a fire safe dish you can burn it at night without a problem, I’ve done so for years without incident (despite my parents fears). I’ve found any kind of incense to be effective, though I especially enjoy musk based scents and lavender for sleep aids.

You can also break gather some herbs and make a charm bag to put in your pillow case for a good night’s sleep. Try lavender, chamomile, hops, passion flower, peppermint, poppy, rosemary, thyme, valerian, or vervain. If you feel the need for a stone inside to ground it, try howlite (undyed please) for a soothing energy, obsidian for protection, and chalcedony or citrine for nightmare prevention. For something a little more involved, you could also make an herbal pillow with the above as well.

I hope these spells aid you as much as they have aided me. And when all else fails, Sleepy Time tea. Not exactly magickal, but effective!
