Wind sock spell

 Conducting the flow of energy through your home

Occasionally it is possible to detect an unsettled atmosphere in your home, or to get the feeling that things are somehow out of balance. This may lead you to conclude that your home has either hosted unpleasant events in the past or is haunted. However, nine times out of ten what is actually being experienced, at an emotional level, is a blockage of the normal energy flow. We humans tend to trail our feelings around with us, leaving imprints of our personal energy - our spiritual "signatures"-in the places we most frequent. If the natural rhythm gets blocked in some way, then pockets of excess energy (or even an energy vacuum) may be felt. This is because the same ability that enables us to leave our imprint also makes some of us sensitive to either its absence or its presence. 

The Chinese tradition of Feng Shui provides a system for positioning objects in the home to ensure the free flow of energy. This wind sock spell employs the European tradition of "sympathetic magic," using the Western symbolism of the five elements. Here, the elements of Air and Water work together to restore the flow of energy through your home. The wind sock is shaped like a fish: an ancient symbol of wisdom and unity with the elements. Cast this spell on a waxing half-moon to encourage balance, on a Monday in honor of the Moon, the ruler of psychic energy.  

What you need:

  • One sandalwood incense stick, placed in a holder 
  • One small bowl of spring water 
  • One white candle, approximately 6 inches / 15 cm in length, placed in a secure holder 
  • Matches or a lighter 
  • One 12 x 12 inch / 30 x 30 cm square of material in any green 
  • One 12 x 12 inch / 30 x 30 cm square of material in a contrasting green 
  • Standard sewing needle and green thread 
  • Three 12 inch / 30 cm lengths of fine wire 
  • Two matching buttons, any size 

What to do:

  • Place all the ingredients in the center of the space in which you will be working. 
  • Sit in the center of your working space, placing the incense to your right and the water to your left. 
  • Visualize a circle of flowing light encircling the entire room. 
  • Light the incense and the candle in silence. 
  • Take one square of fabric, and stitch a 1/2 inch / 1 cm hem on two opposite sides. 
  • Sew the two remaining sides together, to form a tube with a hem at each end, leaving a small gap through which to thread the wire. 
  • Thread two of the lengths of wire through the hems and shape the material into a tube, using the third wire to form a loop with one of the "mouths" of the tube, by which the wind sock fish will be hung up. 
  • From the remaining piece of fabric, cut out two side fins and a fish tail and sew these onto the tube in appropriate positions. 
  • Sew the buttons on to form eyes; these should be equally balanced on each side of the tube. 
  • Pass the finished wind sock through the incense smoke, sprinkle it with some of the water, and hold it before the candle for seven heartbeats. 
  • Hang your fish wind sock from the ceiling or beam, wherever you wish to facilitate the flow of energy in your home. 

You are finished!
