Spell to Banish Debt

https://www.llewellyn.com/spell.php?spell_id=7518

To help remove unwanted debt, use this spell. Of course, you must also take practical steps as well. Let this spell help you be mindful of budgeting and other actions you can take.

First, tear up the bills (or copies of the bills) in tiny pieces, visualizing the debt being diminished into tiny, manageable bits. Next, place the pieces in a safe container for burning—a cauldron, fireplace, etc. Light a black taper candle (white can be substituted) and visualize the debt being reduced to mere ashes, easily swept away. Using the candle, light the paper pieces on fire.
Chant:

“Debt be gone, no more distress.
It will be handled with finesse.
No more concern and no more woe.
This debt be banished—let it go!”

53. Infinite Wisdom (Reversed)

Wisdomkeepers

Whales are denizens of the deep, caretakers of oceanic wisdom, and record keepers for planet earth. They communicate by means of song stories and telepathy. Whales remember how to travel with grace of movement over thousands of miles, following ancient migration routes.

The four horizontal figure eights, or möbius strips, suggest that their wisdom is greater than time and depth . . . it is Infinite Wisdom.

Pulling this card could find you seeking a measure of wisdom to help you comprehend a situation. Something does not make sense and you are having difficulty understanding why events are occurring as they are. Quiet your thoughts and allow your consciousness to float in this fluid blue ocean. Tune in to the wisdom the humpback mother and calf embody. You may want to trace an infinity symbol on your forehead or palm, or move your hands in a flowing figure eight to help you connect with this infinite wisdom. Telepathically plug in to the records kept by these magnificent cetaceans. Ask this infinite source to offer you the wisdom you require to bring greater understanding to your thoughts.

If your inquiry is not one of confusion, this card confirms that you are indeed in touch with insight and good judgment, and you may be assured that your decisions will be sound. Celebrate your own wisdom.

Reversed

Today you may not feel so wise. Relax into the knowing that this too will pass.

30. The Freedom of Love (Upright)

Universal Love • Unity Consciousness

The stellated dodecahedron is associated with unity consciousness, or Christ consciousness. Combined with golden spiral hearts, this card creates a matrix through which we can realize that when we live in integrity and with heart energy there is true freedom. Our journey of evolution is our journey toward unity consciousness.

Meditate with this image and feel into your connection to divine oneness and universal love. Visualize yourself as part of every particle of energy in creation. Sacred Geometry affirms our oneness and provides us with a language to better understand our place in it all.

Love is the key that unlocks this language and helps us more fully realize our divinity. Freedom is the force that offers us an opportunity to realize an expanded view of our humanness and our place in the cosmic order. Take this experience into your heart and see it as sprouting wings. See yourself flying on the wings of universal love and experience the freedom of knowing you are never separate but are truly an integral part of the divine order.

Reversed

Separation is a false story that history has handed you. Open your heart and let universal love fly in.
