How Witches Use Herbs to Empower Their Magick and Manifest Healing with a Sacred Tincture

Many of my readers seek healing and magickal empowerment. With Midsummer near, we have the opportunity to harvest and dry herbs. Witches know that empowering dried herbs is the first step to creating a magickal tincture to empower your magick and heal yourself or another person.

Begin by placing your dried herbs on the pentacle that resides on your Witch’s altar. Say the following chant aloud:

Herb Empowerment Chant

Little bundle of [herb you are using] of mine,
I empower you now, for it is time.

I call upon the powers of the Moon and Sun,
I call upon the powers of the Earth and Sky.

I call upon the four elements, Earth, Air, Fire, Water,
Give this [herb you are using] all Your power.

I call upon the powers of the rivers and the seas,
Listen to my hopeful pleas.

May this [herb you are using] bring me peace and tranquility,
And protect me from all negativity.

Lovely Lady of the Moon,
Give me this, my greatest boon.

Now that your dried herbs are charged use the following directions to complete your sacred tincture.

How to Make a Sacred Tincture

What you will need:

  • 2 dark jars
  • Funnel for liquids
  • Cheesecloth
  • Enough herbs to fill the jar one-third full
  • Bottle of vodka

On a waxing moon thirteen days before the full moon, cleanse and consecrate your jars, cheesecloth, funnel and a bottle of vodka.

Warning: Do not use poisonous herbs!

Ask the Gods to enrich these items with Their positive energy as you fill one of the jars one-third full of the herbs. Fill the jar the rest of the way with vodka. Shake the jar until the contents are well mixed.

Leave the mixture in a dark, cool place.

For thirteen days, mix the herbs by shaking them daily. Make sure to keep all the herbs fully submerged to avoid mold.

Once your tincture (the mixture) has been fully infused, use the second jar, funnel, and cheesecloth to strain the tincture. Place the funnel into the opening of the second jar. Cover the funnel with the cheesecloth and pour your tincture through the cheeseclothinto the second jar. Make sure you squeeze the herbs to get all the tincture out of them.

Label the jar and identify when the tincture was completed.

Now the tincture is ready for you to use in your spell work.

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Wiccans Gain Help from ‘The Dark Mother’

Black and White Pentacle

“Do Wiccans get help from the ‘Dark Mother’?” one of my readers asked.

Wiccans know that working with the Dark Mother is helpful when you need to rid yourself of negative energy, illness, and ex-partners.

It is vital to notice that the Dark Mother helps one do something we can call “positive deconstruction.”

Deconstruction can be natural. For example, a tree falls in the woods. It is natural and good for the tree to decompose. Then there will be nutrients for other things to grow.

Here’s another example. A Wiccan can appeal to the Dark Mother by doing a spell in the waning moon (light to dark) to get rid of an illness. You are using magick to get rid of that illness.

As you can imagine, the Dark Mother is the opposite side of the fertile and growing aspect of the Goddess.

A Prayer

Dark Mother,
Help me get rid of _____.
I realize it is natural and good
To let some things decompose
So I may embrace my new chapter of life.

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Deal with Feeling Overwhelmed

“I can’t take any more of this,” Todd, a workshop participant, said.

“Would you tell me more?” I asked.

“I feel overwhelmed,” he replied.

I felt great empathy for his situation. This began a valuable conversation.

So, what do you do when your back is against the wall?

  • Figure out how to lessen the overload

Draw a vertical line down the middle of a sheet of paper. On the left side, list the top three situations that are impinging on you. Directly across from each stressful situation, note two things you might do that could relieve some of your pain. Here’s a helpful angle about this process: Somewhere, somehow, there’s a lesson in all this. Consider writing in a journal about your thoughts and feelings that arise.

  • Ask the Gods for Guidance

Meditation is the key here. During your meditation session, breathe in deeply. Ask the God and Goddess, “Please guide me for my good and the good of all involved.” You can also ask, “Is there a lesson for me to learn here?”

  • Do a ritual to help alleviate the pain

Ritual is a great process for releasing negative energy—to flush it away.

Also, during a ritual you can create and enhance positive energy.

Ritual to Alleviate Feeling Overwhelmed

What you will need:

  • Virgin paper (several slips if you desire)
  • Black marker
  • Caldron
  • Banishing oil
  • Banishing incense
  • Cakes and wine

Cast the Circle.

Cleanse and consecrate all your ritual tools and items.

(Please note, you use the banishing incense for charging your slips of paper.)

Write on your slip of paper an incident or problem in your life. Anoint the slip of paper with banishing oil.

(At this point, if you have additional slips of paper, write on them and anoint them, too.)

Ignite one slip of paper as you say,

My woes shall burn away, leaving me refreshed and renewed.

Drop the slip of paper into the cauldron and watch as it burns away completely.

(Repeat this process with the other slips of paper if you desire.)

See your problems burnt away.

Meditate on being renewed.

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony

Close the Circle

May this process lighten your burdens and bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
