Sleep is essential. That has been known since the Dawn of Civilization. Hence, we see many gods and goddesses affiliated with sleep and dreams. Probably the most important story comes from ancient Greece where god of sleep and god of death (Hypnos and Thanatos) are triplet brothers, along with the god of Dreams (Oneiros). Gorgeous extremely handsome winged (angel-like) gods that no mortal could ever resist them. This is why all sleep, dream and eventually die. This however shows another thing. These winged gods imply that when you sleep or die, wings take you to another realm, higher. Hence, sleep is a magical ritual, one small death, that rejuvenates you. In order to make this ritual more conscious an easy way is to employ small spells. Therefore, we create a list of 9 things to put under your pillow!
Every Sleep is a powerful Ritual
Sleeping is not just a habit. It’s so much more than this. As we fall in sleep, we actually slip away to another realm, the Realm of god Hypnos also known as the Dream World. Hence, Witches often utilize this force to bring forth blessings, manifest their desires, travel to the astral world and more!
Before we proceed to things you should place under your pillow we should first make it clear that you should not try them all simultaneously. Also, you will need a dream journal to write down your dreams and all things that may happen!
