A Tree Spell


Casting Instructions for ‘A Tree Spell’

Holding the scarf in the hand you right with, pass through the cleft in the tree nine times widdershins saying:

Where there is pain
Let friendship now reign.
And it harm none, so be it.

If you cannot clamber through the tree simply walk around it.
Now do the same again, nine times deasil daying:

May bitterness end
And ill feelings mend.
And it harm none, so be it.

That done, loop the scarf right round the tree and tie three knots to bind the ends together. As you tie the knots say:

Knot one, sorrow end
Knot two, be us friend
Knot three, heal the pain
Let love flow again.
And harm none so be it.

After you have thanked the tree for its grace and generosity make your way home and ask yourself if there is any reason not to make a gesture of recoonciliation towards the person with whom you have quarrelled. And even if you think there is, why not ignore it and make one anyway?
