This spell is best done outside, where you can feel the wind talking to you. Take a feather, some ashes, some incense, and a pot of boiling water out with you. Cast a circle if you feel it necessary. First, cup the ashes in your hand and send energy into it. Then sift it through your fingers, so that it floats on the air. Say out loud or in your mind:
Wind that carries,
Wind that roars,
Carry this wish
to the far shores.
Fey people, gnomes
creatures of all realms
hear this prayer.
Take the feather and send energy into it. Say:
Take this wish upon your wings
to carry to the winged gods.
birds from afar
hear this prayer to bear
far and wide.
Brid, Green gaia
Take the incense and light it. Slowly blow on it, letting the ember burn bright, while letting your breath carry your essence to it. Say:
Ares, fire gods alike,
bear my wishes across the land
for all willing to hear
Do not grant me that which isn’t mine
but that of this life to live.
Carry my soul to those in need
giving all they need
for this one wish of mine
take my [place wish/prayer here]
Lastly, take the boiling water and breathe in the steam. Expel upwards, toward the sky. Say:
Water, bear my needs.
Water, ever present giver of life,
take my wish to the mother’s heart
for the safe keeping till I join her.
Let my love for her bear her womb warm and giving
for as long as my soul shall last.
As you feel the wind whip around you, or even tug gently at you, listen carefully to what is said. It gives you the knowledge to complete your goal. As well, feel no fear, but unleash the wildness of your spirit to the wind. do what it asks you, whether that is dance or cry; it is a healing thought the wind brings you. I find this to be a great release of stress as well as one that relaxes me.
