The elemental energy in water spells is used for magick involving love, friendship, mystery, psychic abilities, healing, dreams and sleep. You’ll want to add some water elements for any magick that has to do with your emotions or the astral world beyond.
So if you’re looking to cast a water spell, here are some of the things you could use:
- Stones like moonstone, aquamarine, jade or malachite
- Altar tools like a chalice or cup
- Oils and herbs such as valerian, jasmine or gardenia
Though drinking is a common part of water magick, ritual baths are another great way to bring in some water energy to your spells.
New Moon Psychic Bath
This relaxing bath will help bring out your natural psychic abilities, and connect with the energies of the moon. Try to perform this spell during the phase of the new moon if you can. You need:
- 1 cup coarse sea salt
- 1/2 cup baking soda
- 1/4 cup vervain
- 1/4 cup jasmine flowers
- 7 drops cypress oil
In a bowl, mix together everything but the oil. Pour it into a tub full of hot bathwater, then add the drops of oil to the bath too. You can split the mixture in half for 2 baths if you want, just keep the oil separate. Get in the tub, and just soak. Careful getting in though, the sea salt will be a bit rough under foot. Let your thoughts float and open up your mind to new ideas and experiences. Stay in the bath until the water gets cold.
Peaceful Dreams Spell
This spell can help promote a more restful sleep and pleasant dreams. An ideal magickal option if you’re under stress and can’t sleep. This is what you need:
- 1 tsp coarse salt
- 1/2 oz rosemary
- 1 oz rose petals
- 1 oz valerian
- 3 pieces of moonstone
- Glass bowl
Before bed, fill the bowl with water then add the salt and herbs. Stir it around gently, and repeat the following:
Bring me quiet
Bring me peace
Ease my dreams
Drop the 3 moonstones into the bowl, and place it near your bed. Go to sleep and let the bowl absorb any negative dreams.
