Shadow spells aren't really black magick or anything evil, they're just another way of using the energy of the Universe.
Embrace the Shadows
Get in touch with your darker side with this night ritual, performed on the night of a new moon. You'll need the following:
On the night of a new moon the sky is dark, and the perfect time to tap into your darker energies. Light the candle, but place it as far away from you as you can, but you should still be able to see what you're doing at your altar. The point is to work in shadow.
Fill the bowl with water, then add 9 drops of black ink. Wait for a few moments for the darkness to spread through the water. Sprinkle pepper on the surface of the water. Just a pinch is enough.
Now repeat the words of the shadow spell:
Shadows of darkness, spirits within
Harness the energy, let it begin
Draw down the moon
Bring me the shadows
I am ready to see
My other side
At this point, prick your finger with the pin and let a drop of blood fall into the water. Repeat the words a second time. Take the bowl outside and dump it all out into the Earth. You'll soon start to feel new connection to your darker shadow spirit.
The Shadow Speaks
This is a bit of a summoning spell, to address the very nature of the shadow.
Use the marker or paint to draw the Theban symbols shown here in the 4 corners of the mirror. Lean your forehead to touch the center of the mirror for a few seconds, feeling the cold of the glass. Light the incense and drape fabric over the mirror.
Touch each of the 4 corners and then immediately rip away the cloth. In that instant, you'll get a strong impression or even see a message in the mirror from the shadow. It's a message you need right now but it may not be clear.
