According to the 16th century swiss alchemist Paracelsus, the gnome is able to move through earth in the same manner that a fish swims through water or a human walks through air. Gnomes are associated with the fey, or fairy-folk, and are equated with earthly treasures, earth consciousness, and great knowledge of the magick in rocks, caves, roots, gems, and mountains.
Because gnomes can move through earth like fish swim through water, one can turn to the gnomes to move a block of earth energy within oneself, or a block placed in our path by another.
This spell is particularly good when things have been moving along just fine for you, you've been recovering from your debts, sailing ahead and suddenly - thwack! You run into some sort of a block. Before you spend days, weeks, or months worrying, try this spell.
- 1 cup dirt
- A sieve
- A handful (up to 1/2 oz) of ginger or dragon's blood herb
- Over a paper towel or bowl, pour the cup of dirt into the sieve.
- Add the ginger (or dragon's blood)
Element of earth,
move the mountain of ___________ (state what is stuck)
As the ginger (or dragon's blood) mixes with the earth,
so shall the blocks in my life
be broken gently apart and removed,
so that I may prosper.
Carry the dirt to a crossroads at midnight and dump it there, once again asking the element of earth to gently disperse the negativity in your life with harm to none.
Wash the sieve, asking the element of water to gently cleanse your situation.
