Snow & Ice Magick

If the weather turns bad…

I love walking in the fresh mountain air, no longer wishing to ski since my accident, but the alone-time gives me lots of magickal thinking time and makes way for new ideas. On one walk along a river, a song suddenly burst into my head out of the quiet, but instead of “Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me”, it was “Beautiful Nature, frozen in time…” so decided I ought to try and find a frozen waterfall! I had to climb up a hill to get to the bottom of the cliff face over which is had frozen, but it was beautiful! The closer I got, the more amazing it looked, yet the sound of running water also got louder. As I reached the bottom of the mountain face, I realised melt water was running underneath it but was not visible to the eye. I sat in the moment and knew instantly what to do. I found a fallen stone from the same rock face, held it in my power hand, closed my eyes and made a wish. Then, the following words flowed…

Beautiful Nature, frozen in time, take this wish and make it mine,

            May joy and prosperity in my life stay with me, this is my will, so mote it be”

I get so excited when this happens, and I threw the stone into the frozen river where I could see the water running underneath, but it stuck on a fine bridge between two small ice holes, which made me laugh. Nature was frozen in time but now so was my wish!! Only when the river melts will the wish be released into the rushing melt water of the Alps. I adored this idea, and made a couple more wishes. So, if we get a run of frosty weather, or you find yourself up a snowy mountain, you too can do this magick and make a wish for you and yours!

Snow and making use of it…

Snow is remarkable as nature takes liquid and turns it into a beautiful solid form which can be manipulated to make a snowman or snowballs for friendly fights. Out of my window, the village looks like a picture postcard. However, it can also be a curse…So, as I sat at 6am one morning staring at mountains of snow, knowing I, like lots of other self-employed people, would be losing money hand over fist just like last year, I decided that, there must be some way of utilising this form of nature to our benefit, especially in the abundance it is presenting itself to this country at the moment, and of course, all mountainous areas everywhere most of the time. So what spells can we do in the snow?? I turned to my mentor, Scott Cunningham, for an answer…as he reckons the things I do in the wet sand on the beach I can do in the snow…so here is a spell for snow in winter and adaptable to sand in summer…

Find a patch of natural undisturbed snow, about 2feet square, at least 3-4 inches deep (I wish that was all!); the deeper the better for this spell and it must be fresh snow, not turned to hard ice!!

Kneel or squat in the snow, close your eyes, and visualise what you would like to happen- what change you wish to materialise in your life, and see it happening. With your ungloved index finger, draw a symbol to represent your visualisation (heart for love, pound sign for money etc) and see it happening as you draw. Now, if it involves love, healing, spirituality, purification and all things ruled by the Moon, draw a circle around your symbol about 18” diameter: if it is around money, protection, courage, weight loss and other similar earth-based changes, then draw a square. (If you aren’t sure, then draw a circle within a square with your symbol inside both). Once your symbol is complete in the snow, brush your hands and walk away.  Simples…and Nature will do the rest as is melts…

Snow and the kids…

I love snow and there is nothing like snow to bring out the child in you. Here is a few ideas for making the most of the fluffy white stuff when it comes in abundance…

  1. When you get snow, build yourself (with the kids, obviously) a snowman…and make him guardian of the gate!
  2. Take the kids sledging or along a snow beach or just play at the park. Have a snowball fight or better still, aim for a target, but when forming the snowball, visualise a bad habit and form into the snow, then throw that habit as far as you can…the smash of the snowball will help rid the habit…as long as you mean it!
  3. If you are having problems with a person, get one of these zip-seal bags (don’t know their name), write their name on a piece of paper and place in the bag, then go outside and pack the bag full of snow. Seal shut and place in the freezer. Leave in situ until the person learns to chill a bit!!
  4. If you have fresh snow, go outside and, either using your index finger or a nice long stick, write symbols in the snow for love, abundance, or anything else you wish the snow to bring and surround each symbol with a circle. Snow is frozen water, so anything you would write in the sand for the sea to take away can be written in the snow and it will be actioned as the snow melts.
  5. Check out the internet for making Ice lanterns and when the weather is really cold, have a go…they are simple but absolutely stunning, using water and balloons or old buckets.
