Waxing Moon Spell
There is one power in the universe
I am a perfect manifestation of that power
And as such, I will [goal that I have]
By my will with harm toward none
I will it
I manifest it
I draw it to me
I receive it
I accept it
I give thanks for it
By my will, so mote it be
And it is so

Do this during the waxing moon. Allow for about 30 minutes. When you do this, begin by clearing and releasing all excess energy. After clearing, speak to the Goddess about your intentions, concentrate on the poppet, fix it strongly in your mind. Hold the poppet imaging that it is in a ball of white light that gets stronger, radiating out in all directions. Focus on the goal. Concentrate on manifesting that goal and seeing that it is done. As you say the words, focus strongly on seeing the spell come to pass. Finally, clear and release. That can mean getting something to eat. After clearing and releasing, put it out of your mind and do not talk about it. Any negativity towards it can deteriorate. There is usually a 30-day window. After 30 days, try again.

Meditation to meet the Guardian of the South
Relax your body. Take three deep breaths each inspiration, pause, expiration, and pause taking 3 seconds long. You walk out into an open field. Pick up a wand in your right hand. Draw a red invoking pentagram. Put the wand down. See a portal start to open in the center of the pentagram. See fiery red and orange colors. Go through it. Be in flames but not getting burned. Meet the guardian. What does s/he look like? Ask for the Guardian’s name. See a dragon. The Guardian motions for you to get on the dragon. You and the dragon take a flight. You see the other animals including reptiles, salamanders and other dragons. After flying for a while, return to the pentacle. The Guardian is still there. Ask if there’s a message from the dragon and then from the Guardian. Thank them both, and then go through the pentagram. Use a banishing pentagram.
