April 30th - May 1 Beltane is a good time to request a mate. This is a spell to see him/her in your
dreams. The ingredients below that possess the aroma and strength to fit the spell to create a Dream Pillow.
Begin by gathering herbs of Venus (for love) and the Sun (for prosperity) -
Fennel - to cleanse the space - purifies
Wild Thyme - to open self to the land of dreams - protects against nightmares
Vase of Daffodils and Tulips - scent of spring - to bring or find love - to claim love ( dry a few petals to add to spell)
Rosemary - for loyalty, devotion, love and strength
Mertle - for love and peace (only a few leaves)
Crumble in a wooden bowl the dried herbs and petals.
The bird feather is a magical tool. A witch may use them for guidance when needing an answer or for adding color and energy to spells.
Feathers for dream pillow filler - chose one or all
Cardinal - fortunate in love
Pigeon - to hear from a loved one
Chick-a-dee - clarity
Canary - communication
Blue Bird - happiness
Material and thread for Dream Pillow - choose the color that is compatible to your magic making.
Red - passion
Pink - friendship
Orange - strength and calming animal instincts
White - truth
Green - spreading newness
Blue - intuition and security
To make a pillow, simply cut two rectangles out of felt, cotton, silk or linen, and sew them together along three of the sides, leaving the fourth side open for inserting the herb and feathers. Carefully insert the feathers and the dried herb and petal mixture in the small pouch and seal with thread.
Before going to bed place your dream pillow under pillow and say as you enter dreamland:
CLEAR, CLEAR, CLEAR, YOU BE
MAGICAL HERBS SCENTS OF LOVE AND PROSPERITY
PLEASE BRING ME A VISION
OF MY MATE NOBLE, LOYAL, TRUSTWORTHY, KIND AND TRUE
MAY WE WALK HOLDING HANDS THROUGH DREAMLAND.
On that night, as well as on the nights that follow, you should have a lot of dreams. I recommend writing down what you dream when you wake up in the morning. When the time comes you’ll be sure to recognize him/her.
