Witch Tips--Charm: To Stop Blood

Author: Quill ofQuillsOccultSupply / Labels: ,

This week's tip is a bit of quickie magic in the form of a spoken charm.  These are pretty much my favorite kind of spells because they can be used anywhere, anytime, and without a single thing in your hands.  If you can commit a few to memory, prepare to use them a lot.

Here is one variety I have worked with many, many times--stopping blood.  From the age of about 4, my daughter would get sudden and horrendous nosebleeds.  It didn't worry her a bit (we're a fairly body positive household and blood isn't scary), but it sure was a mess!  Happily, they are quite rare for her now but between that and the everyday cuts and scrapes--not only of our two active kids but also their busy and sometimes clumsy parents--I can't count how many times I was glad to have this charm on hand.

Please note that this is only one of many traditional charms for this purpose and my phrasing is probably not the only one available.  This is, however, what I learned and how I learned it when I first began my life as a witch 18 years ago.

To Stop Blood

As I walk through a green forest
I find three wells, cool and cold.
The first spirit of the well is called courage,
the second is called faith,
and the third I call to stop the blood.

About Me

My photo

My name is Quill and I've been practicing witchcraft for the past 17 years. 10 of those years I've been reading tarot and teaching.  I own a shop on Etsy called Quill's Occult Supply (check it out at QuillsOccultSupply.Etsy.com) full of handmade ritual and decorative items, spell components, and wild picked herbs.

I love to work with my hands.  Magic is a tool to shape our lives, and I'm using magic to shape tools to shape magic.  Cosmic! 

I use a lot of my favorite things in my shop: herbs, candles, wood, fabric, paint, clay.  And I get to carve, burn, grind, mold, think, dream ... I'm in the perfect business!

I've written 3 manuscripts for publication (2 non-fiction and 1 fiction) and am an avid NaNo-er!  I and my husband run a local coven called Orbis Prosapia, and our children are growing up surrounded by magic, mythology, fairy tales, Earth worship, art, open discussion, music, and humor. 

In addition to working on Ex Penna about my experiences as a professional witch, I also write for Scenes from the Circle about being a coven leader.
