Power of the gryphon light
Make me one too strong to fight
I am good, I am light
Help me shine throughout the night
Increase my power by sacred three
Ancient power I summon thee
By the gryphon’s light on this (month) night
I call to thee to give me your might
By the power of three I conjure thee
To protect that which surrounds me
Gryphon spirit be with me this day
As I go forth to seek knowledge
Guide my path and let my mind be open
So shall it be
Sprinkle pepper where the pests usually appear.
(Name of pest, name of pest) go away
With this pepper that I lay
Don’t return another day
From whence ye came there shall ye stay
This spell is used to enchant a crystal hagstone to serve as a talisman of true sight. Suggested crystals include tiger’s eye, brecciated jasper, sodalite, clear quartz, and sunstone.
Gryphon’s eye, clear my mind
Rid me of distraction
Calm my mind and focus me
So I can take true action
