Dear Friends,

Curing a hangover? Are you thinking to yourselves, “Why Rose, have you been enjoying the ceremonial wine too much?” While there are some spells you can use for getting rid of an alcohol hangover, the type which I am going to discuss today is the magickal hangover that many of us often experience after performing a strong and powerful spell.

At some point, all of us have experienced. Even beginners that may be working with more mild magick may have that feeling afterwards of fatigue and general malaise. Magick takes a great deal of energy from our body and can sometimes leave us feeling drained, tired and out of sorts. On the plus side, a magickal hangover is usually a sign that the magick we performed was strong and successful. But on the other hand, it can be something that can leave us feeling so tired that it can actually make us ill if left unchecked.

One of the best ways to cure your magickal hangover is to take preventative measures before you begin to work your magick. Make sure that you are feeling well before you begin your spell or ritual. You should never perform magick when you are ill anyway, and doing so can make your magickal hangover even worse. Before beginning your spell, practice the proper cleansing rituals that you should perform, and consume healthy foods and herbal teas that will provide your body the extra energy it needs from becoming too drained.

Even so, regardless of what precautionary measures you take there are still going to be those times when your magick is so strong, and just sucks the energy right out of you. You may not immediately feel it, but within a few hours your body is going to start signaling loud and clear that it is going in to hangover mode. Many times, a good nights sleep soon after you finish your spell will help prevent that from occurring. Other times though, you may wake up and still feel very drained and tired, and know that the magickal hangover is taking over.

In these cases, you need to recharge your energy to what it was before the spell or ritual took place. Your personal energy needs to remain strong all of the time, so as soon as you notice the signs of fatigue you will need to start finding a way to rebuild that energy. Sometimes, it will not take much for that power to be restored. Simple chanting, dancing and singing may be able to boost your energy levels to where they need to be. Other times it may take more. Many of you probably already have a preferred method of gathering energy from the Earth. This is definitely one of those times to employ those methods to help recharge your batteries and help you to feel energized once again.

Over the years the best way I have found to prevent this magickal hangover from occurring is to perform such a recharging not too long after I perform my ritual. This method is not without it downsides though. If I perform the ritual early in the evening knowing within a few hours I will be going to bed, I have to be careful how much energy I absorb from the Earth otherwise I’ll never be able to sleep that night. As with all things though, practice makes perfect so you simply need to practice at the best way for you to restore your energy until you find the perfection that works for you.

Don’t let yourself be taken over by a magickal hangover. The lack of energy that you experience after a spell can actually cause your body to become run down and ill if you do not take care of it properly. While they do signal a job well done, a magickal hangover is not something you want to wear around as a sign of accomplishment.

Brightest Blessings,

    Thank you rose for this little tip on spirtual hangovers. A few months ago I charged quiet a few crystals. I found afterwards I could barely stay awake, infact I went into a deep sleep for about fifteen minuets. I was still drowsy when I got up but I had things to do.

    By the way I did the seed wishes today. I did not do thirteen seeds because it was just an impulsive spare moment thing, however, I stuck with the magical number of three and I am hoping to get some results soon.

    Thank you for the inspiration behind the seeds concept. You have amazed me with the simply things in nature that can bring us blessings.

    Love and Light

    I wasn’t aware of the name of this, but I knew that might happens, after myself had one by myself after perfoming long spells. The information you gave today on this today is really valuable, such as everything you write also is all the time and I thank you for letting us know about this.

    Thank you so much for this. I have experienced this phenomenon often, and wondered what it was all about. It makes me happy that I am not the only one experiencing this!
