How a Witch Manifests a Great 2019

Bird flying
Soar to new heights this year 2019.

“Could I use witchcraft to fulfill my New Year’s Resolutions?” a friend, Sara, asked.

“Witches do have an advantage in fulfilling their resolutions,” I replied. This is good news because there are reports that 80% of people fail in their resolutions by February.

Did you make a New Year’s Resolution?

Witches have a better chance at accomplishing their resolutions because we have magick and the God and Goddess on our side.

Here is a simple spell to help you realize the accomplishment of your New Year’s Resolution.

What you will need:

  • Parchment or virgin paper
  • Tinted ink that matches your intention (an example is red to get things moving)
  • Quill (or an appropriate tinted marker)
  • Caldron or fireproof container and surface

What to do:

Cast circle as usual.

Bless and consecrate your items (paper, marker [or ink and quill])

Write your resolution on the paper. Hold the paper in your dominant hand and think of what you want to accomplish with the resolution. Pause and consider the experience and the benefits of manifesting your resolution. Imagine and feel the positive feelings.

Once you have your mind firmly on the outcome of your desire, ignite the paper on the working candle and drop the paper into the cauldron to burn completely and say:

Lord and Lady,
Inspire and make manifest
All the best
That I desire
Fuel the fire
So I experience what I hope for,
Blessings evermore

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony.

Close the Circle.

May this spell help you achieve your goals and bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How a Witch Sends Off the Past Year and Sets the New Year as the Best Year Ever

Was 2018 a tough time for you? Want to release 2018 in a healthy and powerful way?
I know several people who had a rough year. Car accidents, health problems, relationship troubles and more.

Now that the calendar New Year approaches, we, Wiccans, have a chance to manifest the New Year as positive.

Here is a Ritual to help you manifest what you desire in the New Year:

What you will need:

  • 2 pieces of virgin paper
  • Black marker
  • Cauldron or fireproof container.
  • Drawing oil (or extra virgin olive oil)
  • Gold tapered candle. (You could use a yellow candle in its place.)
  • Candleholder
  • Pliers
  • Straight Pins
  • Large metal tray with sides
  • Altar
  • Tools
  • Cake
  • Wine or juice

What to do:

Read the instructions here thoroughly before you start.

On a waxing moon, Cast Circle in the usual manner.

Cleanse and consecrate all your items (the paper, marker, candle, and pins).

Dress your gold tapered candle by stroking the oil from tip to base. Place this candle in its holder, and then place both into the middle of the large metal tray.

Sit and meditate on what you want to bring into your life in the New Year. Think of each of those desires and wishes.

Pick a pin and assign a desire or wish to it. Using the pliers, hold that pin by the head, and heat it on the Working Candle.

Poke the heated pin into the gold tapered candle.

Repeat until you have all your desires and wishes for the New Year (as the pins) inserted in the candle.

Write “2018” on one of the pieces of paper.

On the other piece of paper, inscribe your name or signature. Then place the “your name-paper” under the Candle.

Light the candle and say:

Golden candle your flame’s now alight
Give me what I desire tonight.

Ignite the piece of paper with the old year written on it. Place the lit paper in the cauldron to burn away completely, and say:

Bad luck of this year I command, fly away.
Good luck of the coming year is here to stay.
With each pin that sings, a wish comes true.
Hopes of the future now bloom anew.
As I so will, So Mote it Be.

 You notice that as the gold tapered candle burns down, the pins fall into the tray. With the pins that fall, your desires will manifest in the coming year.

May this Ritual bless your life.

A Great New Year to you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Wiccans Claim Their Real Freedom

When do we really have freedom?

I’ve learned that it is hard to make a healthy choice when you’re in the middle of chaos or stress.

So, what is the solution? Make the choice when things are quiet.

Wiccans, I’ve talked with, mention how they’d like to feel better. In this post, I’ll talk about how you can get to a place of inner quiet. More than that, I’ll show how you can charge a talisman, so you’ll have it available for a stressful moment.

When you make a choice during a quiet time, you can later, during stress, make the healthy choice automatically. In this way you avoid having to make the choice again and again. (Sometimes, we do not have the extra energy to make the healthy choice at that time.)

For example, my husband decided to eliminate peanut butter and apricot preserves from his daily diet. He made the choice once (when he wasn’t hungry.) It has helped him drop 15 lbs. permanently. I have used Goddess Style Weight Loss that I share in my book, and I have dropped 50 lbs. so far.

Charging Your Talisman

Often, Wiccans choose a talisman that can fit into their pocket.

Some suggestions are:

  • A worry stone
  • A crystal or mineral that is smooth to the touch
  • A piece of smooth and sanded wood

Pick something that helps you feel comforted.

Charging and Using Your Talisman Ritual

What you will need:

  • Your talisman
  • Brown chime candle
  • Candle holder
  • White candles
  • White bath robe (or a different color that you prefer)
  • White fresh bath towel
  • Chamomile tea
  • Cakes and wine
  • Gardenia incense
  • Gardenia oil
  • Relaxing music
  • Kosher salt
  • Altar
  • Ritual tools

What to do:

Conduct this ritual during a waning moon and when you will not be disturbed.

Set up your altar and place your talisman in the middle of the altar. Next draw your ritual bath.

Add your kosher salt, three tablespoons.

Light the white candles and burn some of the incense for the bath. Play some soothing music on a device safely away from the bathtub.

Drink the tea, then recline in the bath water. Feel the soothing water. Close your eyes and envision all the stress and negative energy dispersing and being absorbed by the bath water.

Deep breathe and relax.

Stay in the bath until all the stress and negative energies are gone from your body. Remain as long as you like.

Once you have finished your ritual bath, dry off with your fresh clean white towel. Put on your clean bath robe.

Next, go to your altar area and cast your circle. Then, sit in front of your altar in a comfortable position.

Cleanse and consecrate your oil and brown candle. Then, dress your candle with the oil—from base to wick. (This pushes the bad stuff away from you.)

Cleanse and consecrate your talisman and rub some of the oil on it as well.

Place the talisman in front of the brown candle.

Light the candle and say:

Fear, stress and sadness, I fling you away
During the madness here with me today.
Let this talisman disperse all my worries and fears away,
Replace with calm and peace for me to stay.
As I So Will
So Mote it Be.

Do the Cakes and Wine ceremony.

Close Your Circle.

Carry your talisman with you. When you start to feel overwhelmed, rub it and feel the negative feelings pulled away and into the talisman. Your talisman neutralizes your negative feelings.

Let this ritual bring you peace in your heart and soul.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Wiccans Get Close to The Source

“I know what to do, but I don’t do it to get close to the God and Goddess,” my friend, Jennifer, said.

This has been a conundrum that I have faced in my own life, and I’ve heard about it often from other Wiccans.

Why?

No time and no energy.

This seems ironic in that holding ritual is for generating energy. It’s supposed to uplift you.

It appears that many of us are plagued with some self-sabotaging habits.

Here, we’ll address the no time and no energy problem. 

  1. Do something

Light a candle and say thank you to the God and Goddess. Say a prayer. Read a page from a spiritual book. Set aside 5 minutes for a meditation. Simply talk to the Gods.

  1. Invite a friend or family member to join you in a candle-lighting ritual for 3 minutes

This is something that can help you feel supported. If you have a supportive friend or family member, you could invite them to join with you—as you do a simple candle-lighting ritual. You can hold the loved one’s hands, and you could complete the process by saying a prayer. Then, give your loved one a hug.

May these methods empower you on your spiritual path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

As a Wiccan – When You’re Facing an Invisible Illness

flower
Are you dealing with an invisible illness?

If so, I’m with you. Why? Because every day I deal with asthma, dyslexia and clinical depression.

Here’s More Trouble: Beware of Those Who Shame People with Mental Illness in the Pagan Community

What do I mean by “shame people”? I’ve encountered people who told me that I do not need medication. Instead, they claim that “a certain herbal tea” will “Fix you right up.” No. That is a delusion. But what really bothered me is their self-righteous attitude that I was not “believing enough.” Now that’s what I call shaming!

I do meditate. And I take medication. I have medical doctors who help me.

I have depression and asthma—serious diseases. And it is B.S. to tell me to drink a tea or think or wish my asthma attack or depressive episode away. This is life or death!

I do magick rituals, and they help. Still, if someone says that I don’t need medication, they are deluded. Instead, we must be our own advocates as we deal with invisible illnesses.

Why do the God and Goddess let these things happen?

I believe that before this incarnation the God and Goddess helped us plan the lessons we wanted for this incarnation.

Learning lessons on this plane is about taking the direct route. Sometimes, the direct route involves trauma or mental illness. And we know this before we are incarnated.

The God and Goddess don’t want us to suffer. They want us to be happy.

They send help to us when we need it most. My husband—that is, boyfriend at the time—came into my life and encouraged me to get help in the form of therapy and medical assistance. I am so grateful to him for taking my hand and leading me to the help I desperately needed.

Why would we choose an incarnation with trauma?

I’ll share an idea: Do you really learn what touching a hot stovetop is by someone describing it to you? Or do you learn faster and understand more completely by experiencing the pain?

The same is true with the lessons of our life. We need to experience the situation to truly learn our lesson.

Then, there is the experience of real compassion. Recently, I went through a “bottom-time” (crying and feeling hopeless). My husband sat with me. He didn’t try to “cheer me up.” He rubbed my feet. I felt better the next day—Thank, Goddess!

Still, my husband knows that there is no “happy button” on me. Sometimes, we just need to sit with the pain. I deeply appreciate my husband’s real compassion and love.

I realize that we do not ask for pain today. Still, God and Goddess often help us have the experience of support when we’re suffering. Perhaps, you’ll want to do a candle ritual to remind yourself of God and Goddess’s presence in your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Wiccans Asking the ALL For Change

 

Candle

“I can’t take this, anymore!” Rachael said.

“I hear you—” I responded.

“It’s all wrong now. I’m boxed in. I just want to feel that I have some freedom. Freedom to choose.”

“Have you asked the ALL for help?” I suggested.

Simply put, Rachael was stuck. She felt she had no where to go in her current situation. So here is a simple spell to gain the help of the ALL.

Read over the spell carefully several times before you do it.

What you’ll need:

  • One small white candle (it needs to be small, so you can burn it out in one sitting)
  • Candle holder
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Robe
  • Perfume (frankincense preferably)
  • Cakes and wine/juice (This can be as simple as some cookies and juice)
  • Offering dish (you will need one)
  • Sea salt
  • Small table (something to put your candle and cakes and wine/juice on)
  • Small jar
  • Small bowl of purified water
  • Small bowl of sea salt
  • Purified or spring water
  • Lighter or matches

What to do:

Start by thoroughly crushing the garlic and put it into a small jar of your olive oil. Set aside the mixture in a dark place (like a closet) for nine days.

When your oil is done do the following.

Take a ritual bath:

On a full or waxing moon. First bathe to wash all of the physical dirt from your body. Then draw a new bath and put three tablespoons of sea salt into the water. Soak in the water and think of all the negative energy being absorbed by the salt water. Breathe in and out deeply. Relax… Take your time.

Use a clean towel to dry off. Put on a clean robe.

Next, go to your room and clear a space and place your small simple table (this will be your altar) in the center. Place the candle in the middle of the altar. Additionally, set up your small water bowl, sea salt bowl, and food and drink on either the side of the candle.

Disrobe and sit in front of the altar.

Submerge your index fingertip in the bowl of water and say:

I cleanse and consecrate thee, Water, that you are pure and clean.

Then place your index fingertip into the bowl of salt and say:

I cleanse and consecrate thee, Salt, that you are pure and clean.

Put three pinches of the blessed sea salt into the bowl of water and stir clockwise (using your index finger).

Sprinkle (asperge) the bottle of perfume with the holy water (the salt water you just made) onto the candle and say:

I cleanse and consecrate thee, Perfume, that you are pure and clean.

Asperge the candle with the holy water and say:

I cleanse and consecrate thee, Candle, that you are pure and clean.

Spray some of the holy perfume onto you and breathe it in deeply. Breathe in and out three times as you clear your mind. Take your time…

Time to dress your candle: This means that you take the garlic oil and rub it onto the candle from wick to the base of the candle. Carve the word “freedom” on the candle and place in the candle holder.

Light the candle and say:

I ask you,

Who is the lightness and darkness,

Who is the powers of the winds,

Who is the powers of the seas,

Who is the powers of the mountains,

Who is the powers of the flame within.

Who is powers all life and love.

And who is the source of all things,

The Great and powerful ALL,

I ask you for change and freedom for the good of all!

As I so will, So mote it be!

 

As the candle burns, think of all the freedom you now have as this Spell manifests what you desire.

Again, take your time…

Finally, set your cakes and wine/juice in front of you. Hold your dominant hand over them and say:

I bless this food and drink that it will keep me strong.

Place each of some of the food and drink into the offering dishes saying:

To the ALL!

You can now partake of the food and drink.

Let the candle burn itself completely out. (Warning: Never leave a burning candle unattended.)

Clean up and enjoy the rewards of your efforts.


May this Spell bring you many blessings.

Blessed Be,

Moonwater

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Wiccans Reverse a Curse or Hex

 

“I’m concerned about curses. How can I protect myself?” one of my readers asked.

Here’s an easy Hex-breaking Candle Spell.

What you will need:

  • One black chime candle
  • One brown chime candle
  • One white chime candle
  • Sea salt
  • A picture of yourself
  • Cookie sheet or pan
  • Tinfoil

What to do:

Cover the cookie sheet with your tinfoil.

Start at the middle of the pan, and pour a line of salt, going from left to right.

Place your picture on the right end of your salt line.

Make a circle around your picture by pouring salt to create that circle. Make sure the salt-circle connects to the salt-line you previously made.

Set the black candle on the left side, at the starting end of the salt-line.

Place the brown candle in the middle of the line, and finally set the white candle on the end of the line, next to your picture.

Think of all the stuff that has been going wrong in your life. Really get your emotions into it. Once you have worked yourself up, light the black candle. Next, light the brown candle. Imagine all the muck draining away from your life.

It’s important to breathe deeply, as you focus on the bad stuff leaving your life for good. Take your time.

Once you have envisioned the muck completely vanishing from your life, light the white candle.

You can meditate on the good things you would like to see manifest in your life.

IMPORTANT: Let all the candles burn themselves completely out. And make sure to avoid leaving a burning candle unattended.

May this Hex-breaking Candle Spell help you move forward in your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
