Float Like a Butterfly, Sting Like a Bee

Today is the birthday of former heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali. The spell’s title is how he described his boxing style — he danced about (floated) so that his opponent coudn’t land blows: “His hands can’t hit what his eyes can’t see.” When Ali’s blows landed, however, they stung.

This spell makes you invisible to enemies. Should an enemy approach, and a confrontation is unavoidable, that’s where your stinger comes in.

Surround yourself with a circle of white light, visualizing the great champion as your protector, or visualize the champion within yourself.

Impale a white candle with several pins (stingers). Hold a fan (representing a butterfly) in your hand.

Fanning yourself, recite:

Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee,
his/her hands can’t hit what his/her
eyes can’t see.

(Change hit to “reach” or whatever applies.)

Dance about and recite your chant over and over until the candle flame burns past the pins.
