Many Witches call for assistance from Spirit Allies during their workings. Magick and Witchcraft are not a religion but a way of living and creating ritual to manifest, this means that each Witch can get creative with who they wish to work with or what type of Spirits they wish to bring in…if any at all. Some will call upon Saints and Angels to assist in their workings like in Pow-Wow or Bruchari Magick, some call on Ancestral spirits, others rely on the natural spirits of the elements, the Fae beings, Dragons and some will call on Deities from different pagan pantheons. The beauty in Magick is that it becomes your own system and you will find yourself feeling intuitively who you wish to work with in your ritual.
If you ever unsure of which spirits you want to work with, you can always look to nature spirits.
All natural things have a Spirit that you can tap into. Flowers, Trees, Rocks, Minerals. Working with
Natural Magick you can call on these spirits to come in and aid in your
If you need Lavender for calming or clearing but don’t have any on hand or can’t get any at the time of need you can call on the Essence of Lavender to be part of your working. To connect with a plant Spirit you will need to relax, breathe deeply for several breaths then gaze at an image of the plant or visualize it in your minds eye. Think if the properties of the plant- focusing on the aspects of it you wish to bring in most. Invite/Ask the Spirit of the plant to be with you- you can ask it to become one with your Energy for as long as you need it or to be part of the Magick or Ritual you are doing. When you have no more need of it, ask it to be released back into the Aether with thanks.
Elemental Spirit Allies:
Elemental Spirits are beings who are fully aligned with a
specific Element. Their job is to complete tasks that support that element and
to support the Magick of nature. Although they are aligned with Natural
Elements and work within them on this plane, they live in spirit because they
are of the Aether (Spirit).
Earth- Gnomes act as the Earth Spirit Allies, they manifest
as very short and stocky human-like form when they are seen by humans. Gnomes
work with the Earth and can harness the raw energy of the creation womb of the
Earth. Gnomes help to manifest
prosperity and material need.
Air- Slyphs act as the Air Spirit Allies. Slyphs are seen as
the traditional Light Fae beings seen in childrens stories but are not quite
Fae beings- they are however related. Slyphs help to bring the Light around us
and feed our inspiration and aid in Magick to boost intuition and workings for
going within to delve into the Inner Mysteries.
Fire- Salamanders act as the Fire Spirit Allies. Salamanders
often manifest in the form of the lizard from which their name comes. They can
be found in fireplaces, woodburning stoves, fire pits because they are one with
the flames that reside within. They do not always need to be in fire but are
drawn to it, if you encounter one it is often felt as a sudden flash of heat
around you. Salamanders help you to find your passion, personal power and
Water- Undines act as the Water Spirit Allies. They
sometimes take the form of mermaids or are seen a glittering blur. Undines
govern over the energies of the emotions- chemistry and magnetism. They help to
create emotional connections, nourish psychic ability, attract love.
Elemental Spirits are always present when working magick but
they are always available to you at any point. As you develop a relationship
with them it will become easier to call them to you.
To align with Elemental Spirits hold a symbol of that
element and call the energy to you. Take a moment to take 3 deep breaths and
focus on the essence of the element, ask the Spirit of the element to come to
you and join with your energies or for your working.
The Watch Towers: The Watch Towers are the Guardians and
Gateways to the Elemental Plane. Through invoking them you open the doors to
the entire elemental realm to aid in your working. When you call in the watch towers, you want
to begin by facing the East- South, West, North and then returning to the East.
