How Witches Transform a Limit into Limitless

Has someone told you, ‘No, You can’t do that’?

Worse yet, did you believe it?

As witches, many of us have been pushed down and even reviled.

Here I want to share some ideas that startled me.

I was talking with a friend recently. He had just read a screenwriting book by a man with dyslexia.

My friend felt stunned. He read a book by a man who had not read all the screenwriting books due to his dyslexia. Still, the book author earns a good living as a screenwriter.

And Bonus: the dyslexic screenwriter’s book was … wait for it … easy to read.

My friend said, “This author transformed a limit into limitless.’”

That phrase sticks with me.

I have three insights for you:

  1. Work with the limit and find new possibilities.

First, we look at “what’s a limit?” It’s a perception. At about 10 years old, I had the feeling that I’d like to be a writer. But year after year, teachers would use “the red pen of death” upon my papers. They said that I needed many writing classes. It was so hard to read.

The teachers did nothing to show me that one can be a writer while dealing with dyslexia.

They said nothing about the separation between “writing, editing and proofreading.”

As I got “Ds” and “Fs,” I thought, “How am I supposed to do anything with this?”

In 2012, the Gods repeatedly gave me intuitive thoughts. It was not a sentence in my mind. Instead, it was Their message to me—sent as a feeling. “Start a blog.”

Huge fear gripped me. I talked about this with friends, and I said, “Dyslexic. Hello!”

How could I start a blog?

How would I write material that was clear enough?

I needed help. So, my sweetheart and friends said that they would help me.

And this leads up to the next step …

  1. Discover truth in collaboration.

What is truth in collaboration? It’s different in each individual and each particular situation.

I notice that intuition provides different answers to different people.

For example, I know two screenwriters. They’re good collaborative partners. One talks a lot! He’s good at writing dialogue. The other one comes up with a compelling, big idea for a story. Together, they push each other to make the writing better.

When do witches collaborate? They talk to each other about spells and magickal techniques. They share what has worked for them as individuals.

Coven members often work together. They help each other learn and grow. When you work in a coven, it helps when the coven members specialize in different areas. For example, one may focus on herbs. Another specializes in The Tarot. A different member might emphasize potions. (Warning: Always take special care about anything that may be ingested.)

The truth is because I’m dyslexic, I’ve needed to collaborate with others. It’s helped me improve as a writer and grow deeper as a person.

My thoughts about “transform a limit into limitless” include:

Limit: Dyslexia –> Limitless: Writer of 9 books (with editors’ support)

Limit: I cannot read a script aloud –> Limitless: I’ve recorded material and used audio editing. I have 102 podcast episodes (each one is 6 minutes or less) that have inspired nearly 14,000 downloads of the material.

If you asked me 10 years ago if I could imagine writing and doing podcast episodes, I would have said, “Other people can do that. Not me.”

Now, I know that collaboration is a sound path to travel.

  1. Experience true collaboration with the Gods

Where do great ideas come from? They come from within you and from the Gods. The Gods give us the intuition and the knowing.

What was a good idea that popped up in your thoughts? How did you experience this?

Sometimes, we really do receive inspiration from the Gods. I’ve noticed that you will repeatedly receive the idea. It just does not leave you alone.

Does the good idea point you in the direction of doing something positive that will help others?

Earlier in this post, I talked about how the Gods pressed me to write a blog.

I didn’t think it was possible. But I got help. Soon not only did I grow as a person and as a writer, but I also helped others.

This is how the Gods can collaborate with you. They can guide you, so you do things that uplift your life and the lives of others.

You may want to gain clarity by also using divinatory tools like The Tarot. Consider meditation to open a communication channel with the Gods. Have Them guide you. This is how They can help you on your path. Additionally, this is a great way to collaborate with Them.

May these insights support you on your life path.

Blessed Be,

How Witches Handle Counter-intentions in Their Spellwork

Have you done spells and found them to fail, or worse, give you the opposite of your intention?

How does this happen? Many of us grow up with authority figures who program us with beliefs that are harmful.

When we do spellwork, we begin with an intention. We want something good for our lives.

However, a subconscious counter-intention can cause havoc to your spellwork.

A counter-intention can be a negative internal push that is against or is opposing your positive conscious intention for your spell.

So, what can we do to save our spells from counter-intentions?

Here are three insights:

  1. Identify and make a list of harmful ideas that authority figures pressed upon you.

Take a journal or piece of paper and write down the harmful ideas you were programmed with as a child.

Here are some examples:

  • We can’t afford that.
  • All rich people are bad.
  • You can’t do that.
  • You’re not good enough at ______.
  • You can’t make a career out of doing ______.

If you have trouble unearthing the harmful ideas, you may want to do a meditation and look for them within. You can use the Tarot to help you along the way as well.

2. Identify your true intentions.

Once you have identified some harmful ideas that may be holding you back, it’s time to look at them and consider something different.

Consider the opposite of a harmful idea.

I have a friend who has a father who thinks every rich person has done something bad to get rich.

What can be an opposite idea to that?

You could think about: “What can I do that is good and which creates value for all involved?”

My friend met Richard Carlson, the author of Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff. My friend said, “Richard Carlson was a man who helped people as a psychotherapist. Then he became prosperous with his series of books. There was no crime in that. He helped people.”

So, my friend cited Richard Carlson’s life experience as evidence that a person can do good things and open the door to financial abundance.

What good ideas can you focus on?

3. Use the Tarot to understand it all

How do you make sense of it all? This is where your magickal tools come in. The Tarot or another divinatory tool can help you clarify what is going on.

For example, The Tarot can help you identify some hidden belief.

Use your Tarot cards or other divinatory tool and ask questions like:

  • What truth am I hiding from?
  • What untruth am I defending?

Additionally, you can identify a hidden positive intention in yourself. You can ask a question like: What can I learn to transform my subconscious counter-intentions and improve my spellwork?

Such information may help you pick a new direction to travel for your life path.

May these insights help you on your journey.

Blessed Be,

How Witches Become Good at Receiving

How good are you at receiving? I’ve learned that when you really want your spells to work, you need to look carefully at your comfort at receiving good in your life.

Do you receive things like compliments well, or do you say something to dismiss them?

Your habitual ways around receiving can make the crucial difference related to a spell working or not.

I’ll now share three insights:

  1. If you are not good at receiving, your spells may not work

Working spells is hard enough, but if you don’t let in the magick, the spell will most likely flop.

By “let in the magick,” I’m talking about being open to receiving gifts from the Gods. For example, if you dismiss compliments, you’re doing something that may feel like snubbing the compliment giver’s efforts.

Be careful to avoid snubbing the gifts the Gods are trying to send to you. This can create not only a broken relationship with the Gods, but your spells may sputter out.

I have personally fallen into a trap of discounting a compliment, on a number of occasions.

Someone would give me a compliment like, “Good work.” I would say, “Oh, anyone could have done that.”

How would you feel if you were the person who gave the compliment?

I’ve learned to simply say, “Thank you.” I say nothing that discounts the gift of the compliment or the kind observation.

The Gods want a good relationship with you and that involves you graciously receiving gifts from Them.

  1. Pay close attention to your blocks related to receiving

Have you faced a problem with feeling “I’m not worthy”? I can relate to this. I learned that staying in a space of low self-esteem can create blocks. These blocks can create problems with your magick.

Think of such blocks as functioning like a barrier or a shield. Blocks can deflect your magick and make it flop. This terrible combination of a block and your magick can even create negative consequences.

Additionally, it’s difficult when a block may exist on the subconscious mind level. Some people grew up in families in which talking about money was a taboo. Or the parents repeatedly said, “We can’t afford that; put it back” to children exploring toys in a retail store. Such incidents can cause a person to feel insecure about money.

Meditation, rituals, and prayers to the Gods can help you get on the path of being more comfortable about money and receiving.

  1. Keep the cycle of giving and receiving flowing along.

Giving back to the Gods is important. How? Lighting a candle or giving offerings to the Gods is a great way to say “thank you” for the gifts you have received through your magick.

You could even dedicate a chant, poem, or an act of kindness that you gave someone—to the Gods.

At one point, I dedicated my work at an animal shelter to the Gods. And, the animals had a good time, too.

You might choose to give to a charity of your choice. Just use your imagination and your intuition.

May these insights support you on your life path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Take Ownership of the Transitions in Their Lives

Have you recently gone through some type of transition that was rough?

I’ve noticed myself and friends going through transitions at this time. Often, it feels like one is a piece of cork buffeted on the ocean.

Then, I realized that, as witches, we can choose to make the meaning of our transition. Transitions happen to everyone. And as witches, we can make these situations more profound.

Sometimes, a transition can cause us to wonder: “What does this all mean?”

Here is a prayer for helping you squeeze the meaning out of a transition—as if it were a metaphorical orange.

A Prayer During a Time of Transition

Magnificent Lord and Gracious lady,
Let the meaning of this [transition] be revealed.
May this transition cause me to be healed.
Breathe in the love and exhale the hate,
Let in the message to invigorate.
Stich by stitch I now make myself whole once more,
Sewing myself together whole to the core.
Growing through this transition through and through,
Finding my true self through this journey, too.
Thank You for all the blessings.
So Mote It Be.

May the above process support you on your life path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Create an Energetic and Spiritual Reserve

“I almost can’t believe it. Every time I hear the news, something else is going wrong. Sometimes, I don’t feel I can’t take anymore,” my friend, Amanda, said.

During our conversation, I realized that many of us are just existing on the edge. There’s an old phrase that many people are just one paycheck away from disaster.

We all need reserves in our everyday and spiritual lives.

 Here I’ll talk about developing your own energetic and spiritual reserve.

  1. Take care of your body

Make sure to get enough rest and eat nutritious foods. Even just drinking a glass of water can help. I had a family member getting ready to do a live online show. He didn’t feel so well. After just one glass of water, he was in much better shape. Now that the fires are subsiding (at this moment: only 26 major wildfires remain) in California, I’m back outside doing my daily walk.

  1. Take care of your spiritual self

Devote some time to meditation. Even a five-minute daily session of meditation is helpful.

You can make up your own phrases to focus on.

Here is an example of phrases to use for focusing:

Powerful Lord and Gracious Lady
Grant me a spiritual reserve
And help me keep it and preserve
Inner peace and energy
I’m not alone, I can see.
So Mote It Be.

  1. Develop new contacts in our spiritual community

Gathering in an online conversation with fellow members of our spiritual community can lift your spirits.

Talking with someone over a Zoom call or a standard phone call can help ease a burden of something that is troubling you.

Devote time, perhaps once a week, to talk with certain friends or family members.

You might create a “buddy system” pattern. I have a family member who talks, on the phone, with a fellow novelist three times a week. They provide each other with real support.

Talking with a friend can help you ease your stress. This support you’re feeling is a reserve of energy.

This eases a sense of feeling alone.

May these insights support your life path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
