How To Create Magickal Snail Mail
1) Choose someone(s) to you'd like to send enchanted snail mail to and gather your supplies.
2) Set up a little sacred space. Create a sacred work space by lighting a candle, burning incense or any other ways you like to consecrate space in your practice.
3) Take a moment to bring the snail mail recipient to mind. Hold a feeling, image or word in your mind of what you would like to communicate with your snail mail spell.
Is that feeling love, comfort, peace, understanding, silliness or happiness? Keep this thought with you as you create the snail mail.
4) Make your art magick!
Ideas for Witchy Snail Mail
An altered post card
A ribbon charm/knot magick
An illustration of the recipient being happy and well
Blessed coins, confetti or play money
Seeds or seed paper
An artist trading card or altered playing card
Dried herbs or flowers
Completed coloring spells
A tarot or oracle card relevant to the recipient
Paper fortune tellers
Loose powdered incense
Ephemera for grimoires, journals or planners
Mini bunting (perfect for collage or incorporating sigils and wishes...)
A link to a secret playlist of magickal music
Sigils or symbols relevant to the recipient
Wax paper sun catchers
Poetry by your favorite poet or a poem you've written
Witch Tip: Spend time on the envelope too. The envelope is how your recipient will first interact with the spell- it let's the recipient know they're holding something special.
Decorate the envelope with collage, stickers, paint, or stamps.
5) Bless the envelope.
Take your time writing the recipients name as beautifully as possible- visualizing them being delighted and well as you do.
Pass the envelope through incense or dab the edges of the envelope with perfume or a corresponding spell oil (ie: luck, healing, love, protection) .
Licking the flap to activate the adhesive on the envelope is the *perfect* way to seal the spell!
Your snail mail spell is ready to roll!
Pop your spell in the mailbox and the postal daemons will see to the rest...
