History and Folklore of the Sea Witch:

The Sea Witch tradition is associated with seafarers and beachcombers. Sea Witches focus on Moon lore, the tides, and practical weather magicks.

It is from the sea Witch tradition that evolved tales of women who could raise the winds and brew up storms, charges that even two hundred years ago could result in one being sent to the stake. A good storm (intended or not) will send the average Sea Witch running to charge her tools with the storm’s energies.

Sea Magic Practitioners is a balance of the light and dark and works with a term called “grey magick” to maintain a balance of light and dark.  Most Sea Practitioners are solitary or in small like minded circles.  Many Sea Magic Practitioners today will work to help cleanse, clear and heal the waters.

For centuries the association with Sea Practitioners/Witches worked with the weather.

A Sea Magic Practitioner is a woman who chooses to engage with the waterways for the sole purpose of connecting to the magic of the ancient ways

Discovering The Sea Magic

In ancient times, the fabled “seven seas” were the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea, the Black Sea, the Adriatic Sea, the Caspian Sea, the Persian Gulf, and the Indian Ocean. This covered all the large bodies of water known to Europeans. In actuality, there is but one World Ocean. Without it, life as we know it would not exist on this planet. Our bodies are mostly water, so we are all connected by the sea. We are all affected by it, just as we affect it in turn.

This makes the worship of the Sea a natural choice for those who are so drawn. Our Mother Ocean claims us as she will.

Sea Magic — working with the energy of the ocean — serves to deepen our experience as we journey through life. Whether you live near the ocean or just visit the shore occasionally, using the suggestions in this book while at the beach can be a powerful and moving experience.

So What Is Magic?

Magic/Magick is defined as “the power of apparently influencing the course of events by using mysterious or supernatural forces”.  In our Sea Magic work we work with the flow of the water we let it guide us.

In past history there are stories that sea witches would According to legends witches were believed to be able to control the wind. One method was with the use of three knots tied into a rope, or sometimes into a handkerchief. When the three knots were tied in the proper magical way, the wind was bound up in them. Witches gave, or sometimes sold, these magic knots to sailors to help them experience safe voyages (see Ligature). The release of one knot brought a gentle, southwesterly wind; two knots, a strong north wind; and three knots, a tempest. In the folklore of the Shetland Islands and Scandinavia, some fishermen were said to have commanded the wind this way. The belief in controlling the wind by tying it goes back to the legends of ancient Greece; Odysseus received a bag of wind from Aeolus to help him on his journey.  (Information is from https://www.themystica.com/sea-witches)

Sea Magic:  Connecting with the Ocean’s Energy – By Sandra Kynes

Invoke the Power of the Sea and Transform Your Life

Purifying, mesmerizing, and transformative – the sea has long been celebrated for its beauty and mysterious power.  By connecting to the oceans’ energy you can deepen your experience of the natural world and enrich your life.

Whether you live near or far from the coast, Sea Magic takes you on a unique voyage of spiritual rejuvenation.  Explore various types of shells and sea creatures, both real and mythical.  Call upon sea deities and saints to amplify your spiritual practice, and try a wide array of relaxation exercises and meditative techniques:

  • Set up a sea-themed altar to empower your intentions
  • Center your energy with a cosmic ocean-moon meditation and a conch-hand mudra
  • Release emotions with an ancient practice known as ocean breath to attune to the tides
  • Use shells for divination and positive visulaization
  • Select a sea fetch (totem animal) to tak you on a shamanic journey and yet forming. It represents transformation; we sometimes refer to this process as a sea change. The sea is a great icon for ongoing change because its own constant shifting also endlessly changes the shoreline.

The sea is mysterious; its primal call draws us and holds us spellbound. Its energy speaks to us on a level where we don’t often venture, distracted as we are by our culture’s superficial, materialistic ideals. However, the more we are swept into the shoals of banality, the more we lose touch with the depth of our souls, those we love, and the natural world around us.

Physically we may live in riches but spiritually we are poverty stricken.

I stir the waters near and far 

To connect to the ancient ways and the Civilizations Thus far

So I can understand and connect to the magic that I seek

For it to unfold the uniqueness to make me complete

During our time together we will engage in nature and the water; we will gain better clarity on how to use our sea magic tools as we connect to the ancient ways of our ancestors.  This program is for you if you feel the call to work with water and heal your inner soul as well as the physical waters that reside on our planet.  We will focus more on the magic of healing!

Descriptions of your Sea Magic Tools:

  • Black Hawaiian Lava salt, charcoal infused used for cleansing
  • Sea Salt – Banishing of evil influences; purification.  Cleansing, Purification, Consecration, Grounding, Ritual, Protection
    Great for Cleansing Crystals
  • Moonstone – Moonstone is the gem of the High Priestess, keeper of the feminine mysteries. In its reflected light we can project and thereby observe the hidden truths that reside in the depths of ourselves, out of the light of consciousness. Moonstone is a talisman for the inward journey, and meditation with it can take one deep into the self.
  • Optic Calcite Iceland Spark Viking Sunstone – It has been speculated for a long time and recently proven from a discovery in a sunken ship that the sunstone (Old Norse: sólarsteinn; a different mineral than the gem-quality sunstone) mentioned in medieval Icelandic texts was Iceland spar and that Vikings used its light-polarizing property to tell the direction of the sun on cloudy days, for navigational purposes.
  • Aquamarine Crystal – Protection while traveling over water.  Aquamarine resonates with the energy of the ocean, making it one of the most powerful crystals for calming. It is the perfect gemstone to help deepen your meditative state while you are meditating.
    Aquamarine (aqua marinus “water of the sea”) is calming, soothing, and cleansing, and inspires truth, trust and letting go of negativity.
  • Starfish – Renewal – The starfish’s ability to re-grow their bits and pieces is also symbolic of healing and renewal.
  • Sand Dollar – Prosperity and Balance – All sand dollars vary but one thing they have in common is that they all have 5 points which make it a great altar tool for the sea practitioner!
  • Abalone Shell – This shell is quite deceitful. Hidden beneath its drab exterior is a beautiful mother-of-pearl interior. Use this shell in spells to seek hidden treasures and good fortune.  Abalone healing carries energies of protection and emotional balance.
  • Natural Sea Shell Puka – Puka shells originally were naturally occurring bead-like objects which can be found on some beaches in Hawaii. Each one was the beach-worn apex of a cone snail shell, a kind of seashell from a sea snail.  Puka is the Hawaiian word for “hole” and refers to the naturally occurring hole in the middle of these round shells.  Puka Beads are a natural jewelry that can accessorize your altar, staff or create a jewelry piece.
  • Assorted Sea Shells to decorate your altar or do shell readings
  • Mini Sea Urchins – Protection against evil influences.
  • Driftwood – Protection against drowning.
  • Sand – Grounding (you will collect the sand on the retreat)

Creating your own Sea Magic Staff:

A wand is an object with tremendous legendary significance as a source of power and magic. From ancient religious rites to modern ceremonial practices, wands are used to signify a wielder of power.   The wand is a length of wood used to direct energy typically extending from fingertip to the crook of the elbow. It can be elaborately carved and decorated, or it can be a simple smooth branch. The wand is associated with the element of Air. Sea Magic Practitioners/Witches tend to prefer wands of either willow wood or driftwood which are cut to size.
