Wishing for Yule

Since Yule is almost here, I figured we could all use a little help with getting the gifts we want.


wondering magic bring to me,

in this life the luck I need,

so all my angles can be seen,

and thus fulfill my every dream,

combined earth and fire,

bring forth my hearts desire,

guardians of the sea, keep all harm from me.

This should be done while lighting 4 candles of the proper color to represent what your wishing for. Repeat the above words 3 times to bring good luck and obtain your hearts desire.


Take any large bowl. Drip a few drops of different colored candle wax in the bottom of the bowl, then adhere a white candle to that spot.

The different colors represent diverse needs and goals, while the white binds this variety together in harmony.

Each morning, light the candle when you get up and put a coin in the bowl. Make your wish for the day. Blow out the candle before you leave the house.

Whenever you desperately need to have a wish fulfilled, remove a coin from the bowl and either plant it in rich soil (houseplants will do ) or throw it into moving water so that your message of need will be carried through the earth.

When the bowl is filled with coins, use all but a few (these "seeds" always remain in your bowl) for random acts of kindness, like getting treats for the neighborhood kids or helping a homeless person. Your generosity will return to you threefold!


The Great Outdoors (This could be your back yard, a park, or forest -- any place where the wishing powder will land on the earth when you release it).

Anything else you feel you need to personalize your wish. You will need to craft the wishing powder ahead of time.

Do this at home in a Circle or, if you don't mind taking your mortal and pestle along with you, you can make it outside where you plan to use it. (This isn't too hard to do if you're staying in your own backyard).

2 parts sage * 1 part sandalwood * 1 part Tonka beans Grind, mix, and empower.

If you're feeling adventurous, customize your wishing powder to the wish you'll be making. (Example: Crushed rose petals for bringing love into your life).

Find a spot to make our wishes from. Take a handful of the wishing powder and begin concentrating on your wishes.

Put your energy and wish into the powder you are holding. When it feels like you can no longer hold the energy, let it fly. As the powder settles to the ground, visualize your wishes joining with the Earth, gaining power and strength.

As always, remember the Rule of Three when making your wish. After putting the energy out there, it's impossible to call it back. Remember the old saying, "Be careful what you wish for, you may get it."

Where to get Tonka Beans? You can do an easy search for them through any search engine to find them. Or use Vanilla Beans/pods as a Substitute
