Nightmares are scary for everyone, witches included. Good news is that there are simple ways to get rid of them. Here is a simple spell best performed well before it is time to sleep.
First, you will need to remove any clutter so the space is free of excessive items that may be lying around putting off energy that may affect your sleep. Put away books, magazines, clothing, etc. Make certain everything is in its proper place.
Second, you will need to make certain the room physically and psychically clean. Remove any dust from surfaces, sweep, vacuum, do whatever is necessary to clean the physical space prior to or in addition to cleaning the psychic space. Make certain to remove any pillowcases, sheets, blankets, and other bedding and wash them or replace with already clean items and remove previously soiled bedding to the laundry basket. Anything can hold psychic energy of others once they have touched it, so clean away all the surfaces.
Third, you will gather the items needed for the spell. You will need a white candle, a white linen “mojo” style bag, a small piece of jet and a small Apache tear, a small amount of betony and a small amount of rosemary, and lastly, lavender essential oil for anointing the candle.
Fourth, combine the herbs and stones in the small white linen bag. Close it securely and set it to one side. Anoint the candle with the lavender oil and then light it. Once it begins to smoke, pass the linen bag through the smoke of the candle, and recite the following.
Maiden, Mother and the Crone
Nightmares will leave me alone
Peaceful dreams will come to me
As I will so mote it be.
Chant the verse as many times as you feel you need to and visualize yourself sleeping peacefully through the night. If you like, you may even visualize dreams you would like to have of loved ones, favorite places, and special times from the past. Know in your heart that you will have good dreams, even if you cannot remember them in the morning, and that you will wake refreshed after having no nightmares.
Continue this for at least 5-10 minutes before bedtime and then snuff out the candle. Place the linen bag under your pillow or under your mattress and sleep in peace and joy.
