Just because young children, or witchlings, are still in school, does not mean their lives are so much simpler than adult witches lives. They have a lot of stress in their lives just as we full grown witches do and one of stresses we have in common is the problem of misplaced items. Witch or non-magickal, we all have this problem. On your way to work or school, you realize you forgot to grab something, an important paper, your keys, your wallet, or your head. You run into the house quickly just to grab the item, because you know exactly where it is, but of course, it is not where you thought.
I do not care to admit how often this happened to me. I only know that was I paid a dime per event; I could buy a new car annually out of pocket change. It is frustrating, especially when you are in a hurry. We do not always have time to grab the pendulum and start quizzing, or set up to scry for a location in our crystal ball. Sometimes we need a quick and simple spell just to get the job done. Therefore, in honor of tonight’s “missing homework” here is a simple chant to use as you go room to room in search of that, which is lost.
What’s lost makes its position known
Through Maiden, Mother, and the Crone;
All other things in sight recede
Illuminate the thing I need.
While you are chanting this and looking around in each room, visualize everything in the room growing dim, except the one thing you are searching for, visualize it glowing with a golden warmth to lead you to that which was lost.
