Spell to Increase Physical Energy

Sometimes, we all feel a little run-down.

Ask Sekhmet to recharge you whenever your battery is drained.

You will need:

  • A small stone (tiger’s-eye, red agate, or amber)
  • A piece of tinfoil
  1. Take the stone and set it on the tinfoil. Leave this somewhere in direct sunlight to charge. Make sure you don’t forget about the spell: you want solar energy for this, not lunar, so you need to complete the spell within one day.
  2. Before the sun sets, take the stone and cup it between your hands as if you are clapping. Imagine that you are holding a tiny sun. Lift the stone to your lips and blow on it gently, infusing it with your energy. Say, “Sekhmet, Eye of Ra, as you wear the energy of the sun upon your brow, let me too carry the sun with me. This stone is my sun.” Repeat this invocation three more times.
  3. Touch the stone to your forehead, just above your eyebrows. Say, “My solar crown is my radiance. I am radiant. I am energy. I am fire.”
  4. Cup the stone again between your hands, holding it in front of your heart center. Bow to Sekhmet, and thank her for her help. Carry the stone with you whenever you need an energy boost. Make sure you don’t bring it into the bedroom with you at night so you can sleep soundly!
