Using the Element of Air to Cast a Simple Spell
Want to travel more? This is a simple spell that will bring you more opportunities to travel.
You’ll need a small feather, something to fan the air with (cardboard or a small hand fan), a small cloth bag and a bunch of fresh mint.
Use a mortar and pestle to crush the fresh mint and release it’s fragrance. Spend a few moments inhaling the fragrance and taking deep breaths.
Hold the feather in your hand and visualise the places you’d like to visit. Toss the feather in the air and fan it with your fan or cardboard to keep it in the air whilst continuing to visualise yourself travelling to all of those wonderful places.
Place the mint and the feather in a small cloth bag and carry it with you for a week.
