Now, death spells do not have to mean you are trying to kill someone. If you are, you can keep looking because I clearly am not going to share any magick to help with that. But what I am going to offer are some spells to help you deal with death, like you might need when someone close to you has passed away.
Grief Banishing Spell
The pain of losing someone to death can be severe, and you should let yourself experience the grief in order to move on. But you can do a little magick to help lessen the pain. All you need is:
• Piece of onyx or jet
• A small bowl of water
• Some salt
Hold the crystal in your dominant hand, and picture all of your sorrow and grief flowing into the stone. As you do, repeat to yourself:
Take my grief, take my pain,
Remind me how to live again,
Take my loss, take my sorrow,
Things will improve tomorrow.
Mix the salt and water (the more salt, the better), and stir the stone counter-clockwise while you repeat the words of the spell.
Repeat until you feel some of the unhappiness let up. Leave the stone in the salt water for 2 days, then toss it into a running body of water (like a stream). If there is nothing like that near you, leave it in the bowl of salt water for another week and then bury the stone in the ground.
Dream of the Dead
Contacting someone who is deceased isn't a simple task, but you can encourage them to leave you a message in a dream with this spell. The supplies are:
• One white candle
• Photo of the deceased
• Dried lavender blossoms
• Dried mugwort
• Piece of moonstone
Plan this spell for a Monday night for the best results. Carve a small pentagram into the candle before you begin. Light the candle, and set the photo nearby. Think about the person you want to contact, focusing on the issue you want to know about. Sprinkle a few of the herbs on the photo and set the moonstone on the person's face. Concentrate on making contact and making it clear in your mind that your are open for a message.
Sprinkle the remaining herbs on your pillow and go to sleep. Leave the candle burning until morning. During the night, you should dream about that person and they will answer your question. Don't be surprised if the dream is confusing or hard to understand. That's the nature of dreams, so you may have to spend some time thinking about it in order to "get" the message.
As I said, contacting the dead is not easy. If you do not get a message, try again on the next Monday night. If still nothing, wait until a full moon has passed before trying again.
These are just 2 examples of death spells that you may want to make use of when someone has died.
