Spell work: This is a spell I came up with back in 2001 when I was studying science and I had to memorise huge chunks of information.  I took a piece of honey calcite, cleansed it (using a crystal cleaner I created using essential oils and water, sunshine, moonshine, incense such as sage, salt water or a mother crystal such as a amethyst cave) and programmed it with my intention of what I needed it for, in the name of Thoth (that is the Ancient Egyptian God who came to me at the time and was assisting me in my studies).  This intention was clear and respectful.  It went something like this:

“Em Hotep Great Thoth
Please assist me in learning and memorising the information on XXX  for the purpose of XXX
Thank you and In Peace Great Thoth”

What I would do next is take a piece of honey calcite and place it before me (either on the top of my study notes or next to them) while I was going over what I needed to know for an exam I had. Every so often I would pick up the honey calcite and rub it whilst I was concentrating on memorising my study notes.  Later on, in the exam, I would put my honey calcite on the table before me whilst I completed the exam (or I would carry it in my pocket if I felt self conscious about it).  When I came across a difficult question during the exam and I was having hard time recalling the information I needed, I would pick the crystal up and rub it and instantly see my study notes with the answers.
