MAKING AN ENCHANTED MAGIC DREAM PILLOW
Dream pillows have been around for centuries.
They are filled with herbs and scents that enable the user to sleep peacefully.
I am a very lucid dreamer and get most of my wisdom and insight during dream time.
I have friends who complain that they can never remember their dreams, and have
asked me on many occasion if there is anything I can recommend. With that need in mind,
I have come up with a twist on the dream pillow. Why not include magical herbs, stones,
or oils to affect the dream-state? Here's what I've come up with: Constructing the pillow:
Be sure that the herbs you use have a strong scent. Try to incorporate no more than
two herbs within a pillow.
You will need 1 yard of natural fabric that has a looser weave. This will make 4 to 6 pillows,
depending on the size (if you don't use them all yourself, they make great gifts).
Cut the fabric into squares. Take two pieces of the fabric, and sew them together on three sides.
Turn the fabric inside out so that the loose stitching is on the inside.
Stuff in the herbs and/or stones through the open side and stitch them in.
The pillow will be placed inside your regular pillowcase when you sleep.
Herbs and Stones to Use:
To remember your dreams: Herbs: Mugwort, bay, rosemary, lavender,
catnip (flowers of these herbs is best).
Stones: Adventurine, Celestite, Amethyst, and Fluorite.
To guard against nightmares and spiritual evil:
Herbs: Rosemary, valerian, frankincense, and lemon balm.
Stones: Onyx, Obsidian, Moldavite, and Turquoise.
For more lucid or vivid dreams:
Herbs: Flowers of Mugwort, mint, lavender.
Stones: Rudilated Quartz Crystal, Aquamarine, Tiger-eye, and Carnelian.
For dreams of love or romance:
Herbs: Flowers of roses, yarrow, lavender, crepe myrtle, violets, dill, coriander, and basil.
Garnet: Ruby, Garnet, Rose Quartz, and Red Jasper.
For dreams of peace and guidance: Herbs: Leaves of sage, sassafras, mullein,
pine needles, and chamomile flowers.
Stones: Amethyst, Celestite, Opal, and Moonstone.
If you want to add a little punch to your enchanted pillows, magically charge them
under a waxing or full moon, and do it on the day or hour appropriate to the pillow's purpose.
