Middle Earth Magic: Inspired Ideas and Seasonal Spells for Your Enchanted Life

I grew up on a farm in West Virginia and learned much about herbs, trees, animals, gardening, foraging  and so much about nature. I incorporate this wisdom I learned from elders in my family into my spellwork. When I finally left the farm, I majored in Medieval Studies, my attempt to emulate my idol, J.R.R. Tolkien. All these influences led me to my own blended brew which I call "middle earth magic," containing a mix of the modern and the time-tested "old ways."

Message in a Bottle: Peacemaking Spell

If you and a friend have argued and you want to heal the wound, try this simple spell. It is remarkably effective and can even be used for bigger issues, such as an anti-war spell.

If you have a letter or even a printed e-mail from your friend discussing the conflict, roll it on a scroll, place it in a green glass bottle, and cork the bottle. If you don’t have such a document, write one. During the waning moon, take the bottle to a river or ocean at low tide. Draw a heart on the outside of the bottle with a permanent marker, then toss it gently into the water so it won’t break.

Wait until the bottle has disappeared from sight and concentrate on your desire to make up with your friend. Wait a full twenty-four hours before contacting your friend. With the rising tide of the following day, the waters of peace between you will also rise.
