Casting Instructions for ‘How to Make Your Own Wand’
[lgc_column grid=”65″ tablet_grid=”50″ mobile_grid=”100″ last=”false”]Find a stick about the length from your wrist to elbow. Peel the bark, and make a little notch where you want your handle to be. Strip the bark from that spot up, and begin to whittle the top half. You can make it end in a point, or you can sand it down flat, it will work either way.
Place the wand in a bottle filled with your favorite tea or other drink. This will help bond the wand to you. Leave it in the tea for 9-12 hours (preferably overnight, in view of a waning moon) and then set it in a salt circle on or near a windowsill. It will take a few hours to dry.
Take the wand to a place where you will be left alone, and cast a circle. You can choose to call the elements to bear witness of this ceremony by lighting candles, or you can just ask them to be with you.
Place the wand on top of a mirror, and rub it with mint. Bring a jar of roses to the circle, and kneel down. Say this phrase,
I do bind,
Heart and mind.”
Pour your will, and imagine pieces of your heart, spirit, soul and mind leaving your body and entering the wand. Decide which hand you will use when casting, and pick up a small crystal/quartz and say,
”Give this life, let it learn.
When I die, it shall burn.”
Saying this activates the crystal, and ensures that when you die, the soul inside the wand will return to you.
Place the crystal on the wand and imagine a seal being crafted by the three of you.
Take a rose out of the cup, and lay it lengthwise across the wand. Say,
”I transfer its life,
I hand you no strife.”
Keep the crystal in place by wrapping a piece of yarn around it.
This is the end of the wand binding, but I recommend casting a few protection spells over it as well.
To further strengthen the relationship between you and your wand, put a little drop of your blood on the tip of the wand.
I plea for thee’s assistance,
Protect me evermore.
Take this writing,
Turn it into tiers,
I request help,
Listen with your ears.
I need a sanctum,
Somewhere I can hide.
Give me a haven,
You know I’ve tried.
I summon and conjure thee,
To protect this place.
Please make it sacred,
a special Magic space.”
