How You Can Change and Release Yourself from Being Stuck – A Wiccan Solution

 

Have you had moments, like me, of thinking, “Change is hard.”

I like this quote:

“Magic is natural. It is a harmonious movement of energies to create needed change.”

– Scott Cunningham

This idea “magic is natural” can transform how you look at change.

Recently, I realized that the path of “harmonious movement of energies to create needed change” is a path that focuses on the pentagram and the 4 Elements plus Spirit.

As Wiccans we can use the Elements in magick to help us. Each Element is a step toward change.

In the process, each Element serves as a step to the next one.

  1. Air

The first step for making real change relates to the Element Air. Air represents thought. We need to know that we truly want to change in the first place.

Wanting change is not enough. In order to create real change, we need to know that change is needed in our life. This knowing helps us make a real commitment.

Simply wishing for change does not get you where you need to go.

Begin with the idea and firm it up. An idea is a powerful thing. Just like a seed has the potential to grow into a beautiful rose, an idea can manifest into something great.

A well-formed idea includes specifics. You want a target that is sharp like a tack. Something you can measure and see. I will use my weight loss of 42.3 lbs. as an example during this post.

In January, my doctor told me I needed to lose the weight. Now, usually just telling someone to lose weight doesn’t work. They need to want to lose the weight. They need to want to make a permanent change in their life. So where could I begin?

Meditation served as my starting point.

Try it. Burn some incense and meditate on your idea. (By the way, burning incense relates to the Element of Air.)

During meditation, let your mind flow. Ultimately, you take that vague idea you have and shape it into a solid idea.

Losing weight was too vague of a target for me. So, I brought it down to a solid number. I wanted to lose five pounds. That’s it. Just five pounds. It’s something small, measurable, and it can be recorded by tracking my weight on a scale.

  1. Fire

Having a firm idea is a good start. But you need the Element of Fire to get your will into the process. Fire helps give you that push, that extra oomph.

Fire gives you the passion to fulfill your idea.

Use passion to help you form a plan of action. For example, my plan was to focus on dropping five pounds. Using the passion of Fire, I did a Weight Loss Spell:

What you will need:

  • One seven knob, green candle
  • Banishing oil
  • Candleholder
  • Lighter

Warning: Be sure to do this spell during the waning moon.

Cast the Circle.

Cleanse and consecrate the oil and candle. Set the candle in its holder. Sit and meditate on your losing weight. See the candle as a representation of the excess weight. When you’re ready, light the candle and say three times:

Little knobbed candle of green,
With powers, great and unseen.

I light you in the vast darkness so,
Illuminate health for me to know.
Bad eating habits and lethargy, I rip out
Of my life within and without!
Let this my prayer be answered now! 

I pray that you will, I pray that you must,
For me to lose weight high water or bust!
As you my little green candle melts,
So too does my weight and waistline melt.
So mote it be!

Now sit and meditate on losing weight until the first knob is burned completely. Then put out the candle with a snuffer.

Repeat above spell for the next six days.

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony.
Close the Circle.

Taking action is a great step. Next, you’ll need to marshal positive emotion.

  1. Water

The Element of Water is associated with emotion. We’ve progressed from idea to passion to a plan of action.

Now, let’s be sure that you keep yourself emotionally healthy during the process.

Losing five pounds was all and good, but I could derail my efforts if I drove myself nuts trying to be perfect. To take care of myself emotionally, I created a tool for myself—the Goddess Style Weight Loss method. (See below for my Online Course Goddess Style Weight Loss.)

Take your plan of action and make a tool/method to help you emotionally.

Consider:

  • A weekly meeting with a friend to “rally the troops” and to keep you strong and consistent in your efforts
  • A pamper yourself day to help keep you calm. Or one simple, nurturing action just for you: like getting a massage once a week.

Consider the possibility of getting pastoral counseling from a fellow Priest or Priestess. Your fellow Priest of Priestess has a unique insight into your journey as a Pagan. This can be especially helpful. Doing a ritual together can be just what’s needed to have you move forward faster.

In some cases, working with a therapist related to emotional healing can help you stay on track. You may not realize that a past trauma may be influencing your behavior. I found that working with a therapist helped me deal with details from my past.

  1. Earth

Stay grounded through the Element of Earth.

Part of grounding is to keep silent about your plans when in the presence of naysayers. Guard your energy against intrusions by naysayers, who can ruin one’s magick work.

Imagine that you ground your plan of action into reality. Take the seed of your plan and plant it in the earth.

Let your seed of intention grow strong and create the change you desire.

At the core of Wicca—it is a joyous union with nature. The Earth is a manifestation of divine energy. – Scott Cunningham

This leads right into Spirit.

  1. Spirit

Spirit is an essential facet of your journey to create positive change.

With Air, Fire, Water, and Earth, you have stepped into a new life. You’re using the tools of change.

The last step is Spirit in which you manifest a permanent, positive change.

If that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee. – written in the voice of the Goddess (found in The Charge of The Goddess by Doreen Valiente)

Your Spirit is within you, always. Your Spirit is your true connection with the God and Goddess.

Change fundamentally comes from within. When we do our magick and create change, we don’t necessarily change the outer world, but we really change our inner world.

So, what do you want to change in your life?

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Are the Gods Angry?

As you see the broadcast news or news reported online, are you empathizing with people running from Southern Florida to save their lives?

Do you pause and ask what’s going on here?

Hurricane Harvey wreaked havoc on Texas. Now, Hurricane Irma, while at Category 5, stomped Barbuda. Irma now stalks Southern Florida—soon to make landfall. Mexico just endured an earthquake, considered the worst in centuries.

Wiccans I know are getting impressions during meditation that the God and Goddess are upset.

A number of experts suggest that global warming has a role in causing these severe hurricanes. Peter Spinks wrote, in his post, Global Warming Changing Tilt of Earth’s Spin Axis: “Having once tilted towards Canada, the polar axis is now drifting towards Britain at roughly 16 centimeters a year, the NASA measurements reveal.”

Some Wiccans suggest that the God and Goddess are showing their anger in how They are not moderating the devastation of hurricanes. The God and Goddess appear fed up with our pollution and carelessness for the Earth.

So, what can we do?

As witches, we are truly connected to our environment. We can feel the tides of the Earth changing. The seasons are not as they were before. As Peter Spinks mentioned, the earth is literally changing its axis.

Start with something simple.
Clean up our Great Mother whenever and wherever you can. Join the effort at litterproject.com. Or donate to help preserve the forests: conservation.org and animals: worldwildlife.org. Or pick another favorite organization.

Each of us can contribute to the efforts to undo the mess. We need to take responsibility for our actions.

As Wiccans, we have a connection to the God and Goddess. We can make amends and curb our destructive behavior.

We can actually deepen our connection with the God and Goddess. We can help Them in our efforts to take care of our home, the Earth.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

The Power of the God of Summer

“I’m feeling edgy,” my friend, Janet, said, during a phone call.

An hour later, my husband said, “I’m really energized. I’m on my way to finishing a draft of the book I’m working on.”

I reflected on this and noted that these two moments actually tune into something occurring on the cosmic level. To our ancestors, Beltane celebrates the beginning of Summer. As the Wheel turns to Midsummer, the God is at the peak of His Power.

Traditional Witches emphasize having a balance of male and female energies. Still, we can take advantage of the seasons and the surge of masculine power or feminine power. Since this is the time of the God, this is a time of more masculine power.

Since every human being has both male and female energies in them, women can take advantage of this time, too. For the sake of our conversation, let’s look on “masculine energy” as a “let’s go!-energy.”

Here’s a chant to help you embrace this time of the God.

For this chant, we embrace the “doing energy” as embodied in the element of Fire.

The Sun gains power,
This is my hour.
Actions manifest desire.
As bright as a bonfire,
My Will, the multiplier.
In Your Great Hour,
Lord, lift me higher.

So Mote It Be.

May this chant empower you to take action and improve your daily life.

P.S. In celebration of Beltane, I will be gone for a week, celebrating this time with friends and family.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Where should I start practicing magick?

 

chimecandles

Working with candles provides a great way to ease into magick. Such work can be simple yet powerful. Wiccans often use Chime candles for spellwork. These candles are specifically used for candle magick. Although spellcasters can use other candles, I suggest that you start with Chime candles. You can find them in metaphysical shops or online.

So, once you have some Chime candles, you can use the color guide below to select a color that is appropriate for your spell.

(Here is an excerpt from my book The Hidden Children of the Goddess)

*****

Colors and Candle Magick

Let’s begin with the meanings of the different candle colors.

Note that the following list is not the final word on color. For instance, the color blue may have another meaning to you than the one listed here. Remember that your mind is your greatest tool. Trust your instincts when your feelings about a specific color differ from what others may advise you.

Here is a list of colors and a brief summary of their general attributes.

  • Red: sex, desire, vitality, strength
  • Orange: charm, confidence, joy, jealousy, persuasion
  • Yellow: intellectual development, joy, intellectual strength
  • Green: prosperity, abundance, fertility, money matters
  • Blue: healing, protection, spiritual development
  • Purple: the occult, power, magick
  • Pink: love, friendship, compassion
  • White: purity, innocence, peace, tranquility
  • Black: decrease, death, revenge, retribution, contacting the dead

Note: I strongly recommend that you never use a black candle. The exceptions are at Samhain or when talking to the dead. Remember the Law of Three [Avoid doing things that harm others].

A candle that has been used for a specific purpose should never be used for a different purpose. Also, it is preferable to burn down the candle all the way. Try to do this in one session. Otherwise, it is acceptable to use the same candle again—but only for the same spell.

*****

Charging Your Candle

After you choose the candle with an appropriate color, you will then cleanse and consecrate your candle.

(Here is an excerpt from my blog: GoddessHasYourBack.com)

  1. Using Holy Water

After Casting Circle, you hold the object and sprinkle holy water upon it (the process of  asperging). Say: I cleanse you by Earth and Water

  1. Using Smoke Arising from Incense

Waft the object through the smoke arising from Blessed Incense. By the way, wafting the object through smoke is the process of charging the object.

As you waft the object through smoke three times, say: I bless and consecrate you by Fire and Air

You have made the object suitable for use in your spellwork.

*****

Now it is time to dress your candle. You can use olive oil or a specific oil that helps your spell. For example, you can use Money Drawing Oil for a money spell.

How to Dress a Candle

What do I mean by dress a candle? This is when you rub the candle with oil.

You can use many different types of oils, available at your local metaphysical shop or online. If you don’t know which oil to use, simply start with virgin olive oil.

How to Rub the Oil on Your Candle

If you’re trying to draw something to you, rub from the tip (wick end) to the base of the candle. This motion draws what you want towards you. To push something away from you (like getting rid of a cold), rub the oil from the base to the wick.

*****

Now place your candle in an appropriate candle holder on a heat proof surface (usually on an altar). Focus on what you want the candle to do for you. Hold your hands over the candle as you do this. Next, either express a chant for your spell or light the candle. Meditate on your desire as you watch the flame. Stay with your candle until it burns itself out. It is important to let the candle burn out completely. This seals the spell.

May candle magick bless your days.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Protect Yourself from Pesky Entities

Iron Bell
Iron Bell

Protect Yourself from Pesky Entities

Mark held the gargoyle and said, “This is so cool. I really inherited something good.”

If only that were true.

Mark noticed that he was hit with a number occurrences that people often call bad luck. Things like: the alarm clock fails which makes one late for work. Appliances malfunction. You name it.

Mark paused and reflected: The previous owner of the statue had a streak of bad luck—job loss, divorce and then death!

Mark placed an amethyst crystal inside the statue. You see, amethyst turns all negative energy into white light. Problem solved, right?

Three days later, Mark checked on the crystal, which had turned completely black. Next step, he packed the statue with blessed salt. But things still kept going wrong in his life.

What to do? Mark took the cursed statue to a bridge over a body of salt water and tossed it in. Why? Using both salt (in the water) and earth (the floor of the bay), Mark had found a way to protect himself and other people from the cursed statue’s influence.

Negative or pesky entities have many forms.

I’ll now share four methods for dealing with negative entities/energies.

  • Strike an Iron Bell (or other iron object)

Some Wiccans find it helpful to strike an iron bell as a self-defense method when dealing with unruly Fey individuals.

(A number of Fey individuals can be suitable allies for humans. The Fey are known as powerful entities. Still, some of them may cause havoc.)

If you need to defend yourself, know that the Fey find it painful to hear a person ring or bang on iron. Such noises drive them away. Why? Because iron severs the connection to the natural energies of the earth, trees, water and other energy-generating elements.

Iron will bind the Fey’s magick. Additionally, the Fey use the above energies for their magick. These elements are the source of sustenance for the Fey. So, if they are around iron for too long, they can die.

  • Use Loud Noise

Chinese individuals set off firecrackers to scare off demons and baneful spirits. This is one reason that Chinese individuals use fireworks during New Years celebrations.

  • Make Holy Water with Blessed Salt and Water

Wiccans often use salt to purify a space or even a person’s home. Negative entities often cannot stand being in contact with Wiccan holy water.

  • Burn Sage to Purify an Area

When you burn sage, you purify the space it is burnt in. Just waft the smoke from the burning sage around the space while speaking aloud: “I am clearing this space of all negative entities and energies.”

In summary, the effective witch* uses methods like those above to stay safe and to live well.

Money, Prosperity and Wiccans Enjoying Life: A Money Spell

 

moneystack

In a gathering of friends, some conversation about money arose. You could see it. Some of the people gathered bristled.

I like to talk about prosperity which includes an abundance of love, friends, things we need and the ability to be generous.

For example, just last night, a homeless man stood outside a 7-Eleven convenience store. He asked, “Could you buy me something to drink?”

“Sure,” I said. I was buying a Big Gulp, and I bought him one, too.

“Thank you,” he said, quietly.

I was grateful that I had the cash in my pocket to buy something for both of us.

Sometimes, we simply need cash to buy something for another person or to pay our bills.

In light of that, here is a Money Spell.

Money Spell

You will need:

  • A green candle
  • “A check to yourself from the Universe”*
  • Cauldron
  • Money drawing oil
    • Money Oil (add drops of essential oils together)
      3 parts ginger
      2 parts orange
      4 parts pine
      2 parts cinnamon
      1/2 part chamomile
      1 part cedar wood
      5 parts jasmine (optional)
  • matches or a lighter

* We create a check from the Universe by writing the amount we want and writing “from the Universe for the Good of All” in the memo section on the check.

Warning: ONLY work this spell during the waxing moon.

Cast Circle in the usual manner.

Dress the green candle properly. (That is, dab your finger in the money oil and rub the candle repeatedly from wick to base—until the whole candle is covered in money oil.)

As you dress the candle, envision money flowing into your life.

 Light the candle and chant the following out loud:

 As I light this candle so,
Make my money grow and grow,
Let it flow without rhyme or reason,
Each and every turn of season,
Filling up my pockets so wide,
Let me enjoy this happy ride,
Make me stronger than the ocean tides,
Manifesting my will to coincide,
With no malice, woe or hitches,
May there be no mess or jinxes,
With no need of fear of ruin,
Let it rain money, bless my journey.
An it harm none, so mote it be!

Now hold the “Check from the Universe.” Light the check via the candle and place the check in the cauldron to burn safely.

Watch the flame as it burns the check.

Meditate while focusing on the flame of the green candle.

When you are ready, place the green candle in a safe place and let the candle burn completely out. [Do NOT leave an untended candle. Stay safe.]

Close the Circle.

Enjoy the Cakes and Wine Ceremony


The above spell has worked for me. I had difficulty receiving appropriate checks and things cleared up. I was grateful!

May your journey be prosperous and happy.

Blessings,
Moonwater

How to Raise Your Low Self-esteem Through Wicca

“How can I let go of the feelings of sadness and low self-esteem?” Alexandra asked.

I’ve talked with many people who, like me, suffer from times of low self-esteem.

Here is a meditation to help those of us who need to raise our self-esteem.

Find a nice quiet spot, somewhere you will not be disturbed. Light a candle and burn some incense if you like. Turn off all of your electronics, and get comfortable.

In the below meditation, you will identify a worn, harmful belief. Then you will represent such a Harmful Belief as one “difficult-word.” For example, if your word is “can’t”—soon you will place it in the fire (in your mind’s eye). It will transform. For example, “can’t” can transform into “I CAN learn what I need to learn.” This is a New Belief.

Meditation to Raise Your Self-Esteem

Close your eyes.  Be aware of the light that is in the room through your closed eyelids.

Breathe in and out deeply … Relax.
Keep breathing deeply. In … and … Out.
Breathe out the stress of the day.
Breathe in relaxation and peace.

(Pause)

You are still aware of the light that is in the room.
Now the light begins to fade.
As it fades you feel total comfort. You feel safe and secure in the darkness.

(Short Pause)

Now, a new form of light blossoms around you.
You look down and see a cauldron.
Flames are fluttering from within the cauldron, and they rise to about four inches above the lip of the cauldron.

Pick one thought or memory of sadness or “I can’t do it.”
Now identify a word that represents the difficult thought.
See how the “difficult-word” appears to break down.

The difficult-word is now old and worn out.
You know in your heart that you no longer need the word.
It is time to let it go.

(Pause)

See your difficult-word. The flames in the cauldron
are flickering behind your difficult-word.
Now with your mind, push the difficult-word into the flames.
The difficult-word catches fire, and the fire completely consumes the difficult-word.  

(Pause)

The difficult-word disappears and soon a green colored smoke rises from the cauldron.
It starts to form your New Belief—which is in the form of a sentence.
This New Belief helps you and supports you.
Breathe in deeply and absorb the green, supportive New Belief.

(Pause)

The New Belief is now part of you, and you have gained its attributes.
Feel it. Know it is so.
You now return to the physical world, and you always know you have that positive attribute no matter what anyone says.

(Pause)

Coming back is a gentle transition as the light begins to fade around you once more.
Slowly at first, it gets darker and darker.
As it fades you feel total comfort. You feel safe and secure in the darkness.

(Short Pause)

Then a familiar light returns, the light in the room where you started.
It gradually gets brighter and brighter.
You are back in the room. You have brought the feelings of higher self-esteem and happiness back with you.

(Short Pause)

Now, gently open your eyes.

Use the above meditation as often as you need to. With a lot of practice, soon all of the bad thoughts about yourself can transform into the green smoke of renewal and higher self-esteem.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
