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."

Somebody (or Something) is Chasing You

This is one of the most common—and most frightening—dreams you can have. It’s the sort of chest-pounding, heart-stopping dream that makes you shoot up out of bed, right before the chaser lays their hands (or claws) on you. This dream has to do with feelings of stress and anxiety in a person’s waking life. It can be the result of your brain’s fight or flight in response to something that is threatening your well- being. Some things you will want to notice in your dream are who or what is chasing you, how you are feeling in the dream, and whether you escape whatever is chasing you.

Chase dreams are also associated with avoidance. A chase dream can mean that you are running from something in your waking life. It could be a situation you don’t want to deal with, a person you need to hold accountable, or a fear that needs to be confronted. Probably, the things that happen in this dream indicate how you cope when problems and pressures come your way. If you know the person chasing you in your dream, it’s possible that you have an ongoing issue with that person in reality. The chaser can also represent some part of yourself or some feelings that you have been keeping down. Let your intuition guide you—chances are you already know what this dream is trying to tell you, you just need to confront the truth. It’s time to stop hiding. Once you face the thing you’ve been avoiding, you will have much more peace of mind.
