This is a simple spell to help you reveal the truth about any situation. It can be helpful if you feel that something is being purposefully hidden from you, or if you seek clarity about any situation in your life.
For this truth spell, you will need:
- A lapis lazuli gemstone (must be cleansed before use – do this by soaking the stone in water with a pinch of sea-salt, or by holding it over a lit stick of incense, cleansing it with the smoke)
- A white or purple candle
Performing the truth spell
Center and ground yourself, then cast your circle.
Light the candle in front of you, and meditate on the light of the flame for a few minutes, clearing your mind of all thought as best you can.
Then, take the lapis lazuli crystal into your hand. Close your eyes and see a bright white flame with your mind’s eye. See the flame growing larger and larger, filling the whole circle with light. Make this light as strong as you can, and hold this image for a minute or so. Then, send this light into the crystal you are holding. Visualise the lapis stone absorbing all the light inside the circle, until it glows brighter than a thousand flames.
Repeat the following incantation:
May the truth I seek
Be revealed to me,
May the hidden come to light,
So mote it be.
Close the circle.
The lapis lazuli crystal is now enchanted to reveal the truth of any situation. Before you go to sleep, place the crystal under your pillow, and intend for the truth to be revealed to you in your dreams. (You don’t need to remember your dreams for this to work – the truth will come to you in the form of intuition and gut feelings during the day).
When you are not using the crystal, keep it wrapped in a white cloth, and don’t let it be handled by anyone other than yourself.
