Spirit Collection Spell

Spirit Collection Spell - Angel of Death Retrieval

At this time of year the membrane that keeps people blind to spirits thin and people become aware of the unseen world around them. Many people could encounter animistic spirits, guides, or totems. Others experience their departed loved ones and ancestors. Then you have places that stir with unhappy or harmful ghosts. Those who departed with unhappiness in their hearts and stayed close to this plane of existence. For these spirits, who have done or want to do harm, a spell has been crafted to call upon the Angel of Death to guide these spirits homeward. 

  • Black or grey candle (and holder)
  • white paper
  • grey, silver, or black marker
  • fireproof bowl 
  • any decorations for altar
  • image or statue of the angel of death
  • small bag of salt 
Set up your altar for spell work. Place the candle in the center of your altar. Set your paper, salt, and marker close by. The representation of the angel should be in back of your candle, laying flat or at a safe distance from the flame. Place the fire proof bowl in front of the candle. Feel free to cleanse or smudge the area before you begin. 

Sit or stand before your space and bring your hands to your chest, above your heart. Take in a few deep breathes and close your eyes. Visualize Azrael, the angel of death, standing in front of you. If you feel intimidated by the angel ask that they give you a little room until you feel more comfortable. Hold the visualization of this angel and after a moment see them stand on the other side of the altar from you. When you feel their presence continue. Say,

"Oh angel of gentleness,
Most patient and kind,
Tonight I send you swiftly,
Restless spirits to find,
Guide them homewards,
To places that shine.
Where moonless nights,
Leave no one blind." 

Take up your paper and marker. Write the places that you or others have experienced unhappy spirits. These are the ones that may be harmful, overly mischievous, or be negatively effecting the living. You may not know which spirit is doing these things, so writing down the place and address (if possible) is ideal. This way the angel can tend to any of the spirits they need to. Once you have written the places fold them up. In your mind, imagine the place and once you can 'see'  it clearly, set the paper on fire with the candle. Place the burning paper in the bowl. You can do this for multiple places if you need to, even your own home to help cleanse it. Once you  are done relax and close your eyes. Address Azrael and kindly ask them to tend to these places. Thank them for their assistance and continue. 

Open your eyes and pick up the small bag of salt. Pour the salt over the burnt paper until they are completely covered. Using your finger draw a spiral from outside to the middle of the bowl. Pick up your angel representation and place it in the center of your salt spiral. Blow out your candle and say,

"All life moves steadily to one end. May Azrael guide the restless to the shining places."

Keep your angel up for atleast three days. You can perform this at any time of year. New moons work best and Samhain or Halloween are the most active.

Being Angel Read

Last night I had a chat with one of my favorite angel authors. There were five of us having angel readings done. I was the middle person and I listened carefully to everything she said. I took notes and went through them later to highlight the portions that stood out. So what did the angels have to say?
  Well among the sweet things that were somewhat personal, the over all theme was...

"Stop being lazy and get down to business. You're space is so cluttered that you are wasting money buying things that you already have buried in the clutter. Instead organize and create what you want for yourself." 

There was a lot of focus on my behavior toward space management. I told my husband this and his response was "you realize I now have angels on my side." Well that is tough love for you. In the chat I was the only one to have two angels step up to help me with this phase of my path. Which makes me feel a tad better. Even if one of said angels gets annoyed by all the clutter in my office. I have a feeling that angel #2 is the one sympathetically patting me on the shoulder. We will see how it goes.

Angelic Sigil Spell

Sigils are symbols created to focus and upon and be charged for a certain purpose. This sigil was created as a focus for communication with the angels. Around the outside in angelic script is a short prayer to the angels to open up the lines of communication and guide us. Then there are the names of some of the angels I have worked with. At the top is the name of archangel Michael, who is the commander of heaven. The symbol of life and magick, the ankh, sits between wings representing the angels as messengers of the Source.

To charge a sigil you print it and cut it out. Hold it in your hands and close your eyes. Ask the the angels to connect with you and help to raise your vibration to connect with them. Imagine that request as a ball of energy within your heart. Let it glow brightly as you focus on your request. After visualizing it becoming as bright as it can, imagine the ball moving from your heart, between your arms and down into your hands. Once there it flattens and merges into the sigil.

Now that the sigil is charged you can place it where its energy will flow best. Or you can burn it and let the energy move into the Universe.

Places to put the sigil:
-under the bed
-inside a stuffed animal
-Inside a pillow or sachet
-on your altar
-under your favorite angel statue

Spirit Guides Vs. Angels

There are many types of spirits and helpers. Spirit guides are very popular in the new age and metaphysical communities. Spirit guides are spirits of people who have passed, made peace with their deaths, learned from their lives, ascended, and decided to work as guides for other people. They have been human and can understand human experiences. They always seek to support their charge and help them grow spiritually.

Angels on the other hand are said to not have human experiences. Their energy is not the same as a human spirit or soul. However, recently in Angelic Pathways by Chantel Lysette, it was put out there that in history angels have incarnated as people. These lives that the angels incarnated as played such a huge, if not destructive, part in history that a human soul would be unable to take the burden of the experience in their afterlife. I am not entirely sure of that, but it is an interesting outlook. I don't believe in a hell, punishment for sin. I think all things happen for a reason and we all end up in the same place. Getting back on point...

Everyone has a spirit guide, if not more, just like everyone has an angel. They work great together and can work through each other as well. So if you are unsure about one, you can ask the other to work with them.

No Labels

I meet very few pagans who freely experience angels outside of the Christian or Abrahamic thought. Not many feel 100% comfortable working with angels, even less in magick or rituals. But there is something to remember. Angels are privy to things that we as limited human beings are not. They see farther and longer than we could hope to at this time. In this way they don't serve a god so much as they do the Source. Source being the great energy, consciousness of the Universe. How one person sees Source is different from any one else. So the angels have no problem working with people who are in harmony with the Universe  and Source. My version of Source takes the form of gods, egyptian ones in fact. The angels have never told me that I was wrong or shouldn't worship the gods. They see things from a much clearer perspective. 
  So open up your hearts to the angels and start getting to know them.

Angels know what you NEED

  There is a certain attitude in magickal practitioners that has been around for a very long time. It originates all the way back to the summoners of angels. The practitioner would draw their symbols, do their chants, cast and presto! Angel. They summoned the angel they desired, even if it was not the angel they needed.

  Some practitioners get into searching for their guides and angels as a way of connecting with themselves or their needs. But once in awhile the preconception of the person can get int the way of the messages, energy, and angels they really need. For instance, a friend of mine has been seeking to connect with archangel Michael. I suggested techniques and ways to connect, but further on in the conversation the motivations emerged. My friend is a very active, fiery energy with obvious masculine tendencies. He wanted to connect with Michael because he thought they would be compatible. Plus he really wanted to see the big flaming sword. Well I let it be. The next day I was in a chat with him and a few other people and felt urged to give angel readings. My friend's turn came. Turns out that this wasn't the right time to connect with Michael. What the angels wanted to tell him was that he needed to connect with angels of humility, mercy, and compassion at the time to help balance his active energies.
   This bring me to the topic at hand. Sometimes we think we know what we need. The angels definitely know what we need. So when you ask the angels for guidance, you can and should always ask for what you need at the time. Because even if you don't know, they do.

News from Angels

So I have mentioned before that the angels seem to come and go with me. Some days I feel them around me, other days its quiet. Recently I have been swarmed with their energy. This thursday my husband has an interview that will decide whether we will be moving or staying for a few years. Whatever the result, the angels seem to think that this will mark the time for me to build my own reiki practice. Not only a reiki practice but also an angelic practice to help connect people with the angels.
   I'm over their news, so the logistics are still in the works. I am hoping to be able to figure that out later down the line. wish me luck.

Sharing a story

I realized, after all this time, that I barely share any of my angel stories. I feel a bit apprehensive because I don't remember many of my stories after awhile so it feels like I don't have many. But I have written one or two down so I will give you one of those. Enjoy!

I have never been fearful of death. My mother worked as an administrator for Hospice since I could remember. Even before that I was accustomed to the fact that people are not invincible. I was born only three years before my mother's parents passed away and the only one of their grandchildren not to be terrified of my grandfather. As I grew older I began to experience many things from new step-parents to many many new pets. I explored my spirituality and found a passion for my beliefs. 

When I first started communicating and connecting to angels, I was in high school. From freshman year and onward I found that connection strengthening. Even if I did not talk to them for months at a time while I dealt with new experiences in college they were still there. It has been thirteen years since I first started talking with angels and I am still being surprised. I would like to share one of these surprises that, looking back now, seems to fill in the gaps for the strange occurrences in my 

About a month or so ago I decided to make my focus this winter on healing. I wanted to heal myself, my past wounds, and emotional scars. I meditated and tried to work through the experiences that hurt me so badly as I grew up. I used the chakra system as a guide in dealing with issues one at a time. My childhood was not very stable and I can barely remember the time with my first step-father. I found out in my teen years that he had been an angry alcoholic and would get in yelling fights with my mother. My brother blames him for my sudden personality shift from an extroverted child to a quiet, introvert. Thankfully he was not in our lives for very long, but those memories are still fuzzy. In trying to work out past wounds I hit a snag on my very first chakra. The root chakra develops and solidifies around the age of seven. 

The period around which my first step-father would be leaving my life. This chakra deals with stability and at the time of its development I had very little. While thinking this over in bed one night and the effects it must have had on me, I closed my eyes. I tried to visualize what my bedroom had looked like at that time. At that point in my childhood I used imaginary friends and daydreaming to relax my mind before bed. Each night I would visualize and talk to my imaginary friends. I had so 
many I could barely remember them all. As I relaxed, trying to imagine my old room and my childhood self I saw in my mind's eye a figure by my old bedside. This imaginary friend, or so I termed it, looked like a snow princess. She, or he, was decked out in silvery blue with long white hair. They were beautiful with a bitter sweet smile. In my mind I knew that smile, but I could not place it. So I let the image of the figure at my childhood bedside play out. They would sit with me each night and help me get to sleep. My mind was still trying to place that sad smile. I held the visualization of the figure until I realized where I knew that look from. 

Whenever I feel or visualize the angel Azrael that same bitter sweetness comes with him. The smile was the same. Only now I see him in a black suit with shoulder length, wavy blonde hair looking dapper and clean. But the smile had not changed. I realized that Azrael had been with me long before I ever started speaking with angels. He was with me each night trying to comfort me into restful sleep and he still does to this day. Realizing that I allowed myself to relax in my bed and thanked Azrael. I came to terms with the fact that I may never remember what happened at that time in my childhood and in some ways I am sure it is a blessing. I continue to be comforted by 
the angels and guided as I continue to heal myself.

Lifting Up

   Sometimes I sit at my computer and begin to watch my shows. Shows that somehow bring the angels closer to the surface and much more accessible. They bring our energies up and ready to receive that connection.
   If anyone reads or follows my posts they know that my life moves in seasons. At one time I'll be reading up on Shinto, at another time I'll  be connecting to spirits of the land, then we'll come full circle back to the angels. And they understand this for me. Currently I am not sure what I am focusing on with the angels. All I know is that they are back and will probably be hounding me over something or other. Yes, the angels can be hounding. And yeas, they can be exacting and a bit pushy. Yet they are still going to be there with you to support you.

  Still not sure where they'll take my eyes and focus me. We'll see.
