a forest spell for abundant health and healing

those of us who have spent any time in the woods or deep in the forest can attest to the healing power of just being surrounded by so much earthy, green, powerful energy.

i’ve written before on forest therapy, which is used by many people as an adjunct to medical treatment for a variety of health problems, including psychological and emotional therapies.

but i think beyond just forest therapy, there is real, tangible benefit to being around, absorbing, and using the energy of the forest.

so here is a forest spell for abundant health and healing, should you (or someone you know) be looking for that right now.

consider using something like my spell oil. WOOD here, to amplify your magick and ensure a successful outcome.

i have included some items you may want to use, to help focus and/or amplify your energy and intent, but truthfully, you could do this with nothing but yourself and the wilderness, if you choose.

what you will need:

  • a white candle, for healing
  • you could also use a green candle here, as this is earth magick
  • or why not both colors?
  • a scrap of cloth, at least 6″x6″, but bigger if you want (you’ll use this for a charm to hold forest dirt)
  • a length of cord, twine, or string to tie closed the charm bundle
  • a knife to cut branches with
  • consider using some sound, such as a bell or a drum, as this is the perfect environment in which to employ the power of magickal sounds to carry your energy and words
  • anything you want to cast a circle, if you choose to use external objects

the spell:

before you cast your circle, you will want to cut a length of newly grown branch from a large, healthy tree with your knife. ideally, this is a tree that stands tall, with supple branches, leaves, and no sign of disease or withering. if you are performing this spell after leaves have turned brown and fallen, that’s ok. the branch need only be 6″-10″ in length and should be obviously young with a greenish interior, signifying its youth and newness.

  1. gather all of your items together inside your ceremonial space, then cast your circle.
  2. raise energy through whatever means you choose (singing, dancing, humming, music, meditation, etc
  3. once you have reached a peak of your energy, light your candle(s) and repeat three times, your voice growing louder each time:

candle [color of candle], candle bright

power of earth, power of light

candle [color of candle], candle bright

aid my will of health tonight

4. hold the tree branch in your hands, outstretched over the candle(s) flame, but far enough away that you will not burn yourself. recite three times:

young and supple tree

grant thy health to me

heal my ills within

i request this help from thee

5. lay the fabric square in front of you and using your knife, dig up a small handful of dirt from the ground in front of you, placing it in the fabric square.

6. hold the the open fabric with dirt in both hands, over the candle(s) flames, but far enough away that you will not burn yourself. recite three times:

mother of the heavens and the earth

mistress of death and birth

hear my plea for renewed health

i ask for your blessing and wealth

may this earth in my hands

henceforth health command

after the third time, state “my will be done”

7. tie the charm bundle closed, wrapping a length of the small young tree branch in to the binding cord or string, before knotting it closed permanently.

8. carry the charm with you, or give to the intended recipient, until the results have been conveyed. once you no longer have need of it, empty the contents back into the earth.

what is forest therapy?

i’m glad you asked. ’cause i’m about to tell you all about this.

forest therapy is something that probably a lot of us have done and not realized it. but its exactly what it sounds like.

forest therapy, or you might hear it called forest bathing, is spending time around the high vibrations of the forest to raise your own internal energy and vibrations, as well as the added benefits of the cleaner air.

during forest therapy, you’re exposed to the microvibrations from the trees, plants, animals, underground water, and, of course, the earth beneath your feet.

you might sit in one place and experience this, or you might wander along as just another part of the ecosystem.

forest therapy may be guided or unguided. if you do a guided session, and i would recommend this at least once because its neat, you may be asked to pick a solitary spot and meditate on a particular topic, or you may spend time coming into contact with the life forms in the forest to pick up on their energy and vibes.

many people report being healed or a overcoming mild to serious health problems through simply undergoing forest therapy. while there are no studies that have really looked at health outcomes from forest therapy, it certainly cannot hurt you to go outside and get some fresh air if you’re not feeling well, but please consult your healthcare provider before beginning or changing medical therapies if you are being treated for a medical condition.

forest therapy can also be thought of as an opportunity to connect with the life in the forest. if you’ve ever put your palms on a tree trunk or sat near a stream, you’ve likely experienced the rush of communication coming from those sources, which we may not normally pick up in our ‘normal’ environments, especially if we live in urban or suburban areas.

forest therapy can often be combined with things like earthing (walking barefoot on the earth to absorb the positively charged ions there).

the forest is an AMAZING place for magick and spells because its so high vibe and already full of magick itself.

you might also find that the forest is a place that heals emotional or psychological wounds. it makes us see a much larger and more powerful element beyond ourselves, and realize that we are but a part of the whole. i know i often forget all about things i’m stressed about or negative feelings or thoughts i’ve held onto once i’m immersed in the forest.

something about the forest just makes me feel still. i am always in awe of the enduring life there, which is older than me by far, and probably many older than the length of time humans have existed in my city even.

when i was a young witch and unsure of where my path would lead me, the forest was always a reminder that i leaned toward green witchery, even if i dabbled in other paths as well.

i hope this post encourages more people to get out and explore the forests around their area. now is the perfect time to absorb the positive vibes of nature and be part of the stillness there.
