How Witches Deal with Fear in Crafting Spells

“I’m afraid about crafting my first spells,” Andrea, a new acquaintance, said to me.

This began a significant conversation.

Sometimes, I look at crafting spells like cooking versus baking.

If you’re cooking and experimenting with a recipe, you can take it easy and try things. Maybe you’ll add a bit of pepper. Or a bit of spice. Things that may not need precise amounts. However, some spell components need to be precise.

I call this the difference between Experimenting Spellwork and Critical Spellwork. If you’re doing a simple spell just to enhance your prosperity, you might be in the area of Experimenting Spellwork.

However, if you’re dealing with something you will consume (like certain herbs), then you’re in the realm of Critical Spellwork. I note that Critical Spellwork is similar to baking because baking has chemical reactions involved (for example, a roux).

Remember some herbs are poisonous. And herbs have chemical compounds that may not be safe. When working with herbs, stay with the ones you know. Be sure to investigate reliable sources as you do research. Remember some herbs may be safe for some individuals but not safe for others. Certainly, be careful about whatever you ingest if you’re pregnant or may become pregnant.

Questions to ask are:

  • Is this poisonous?
  • Can this be dangerous to consume?
  • Will I or someone else have an allergic reaction?

Make certain that you ask these questions if you consider working with advanced spells or possibly some form of hazardous materials.

Here is a Vital Part of Spellwork – the Safety Clauses

In my own spellwork, I use these clauses:

  • For the good of all involved
  • This or better

Safety clauses help keep you (and others) safe from harm. Safety clauses also protect you from the possibility of a spell backfiring on you. Safety clauses also create boundaries that will not be crossed with your spells.

An example:

For a money spell, include something like: “May no one be harmed and for the good of all involved.” (You’re guarding against the situation of a favored relative dying and then leaving money behind.)

May these insights support your life path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Craft Effective Spells

“What is the most important thing to remember when you do magick?” my friend, Lisa, asked.
“The intention is the most important thing,” I replied.
“How is that? Aren’t words important?”
“Yes, they are.”
“Okay, I’m confused,” she said.
Are you concerned about how magick works?
Here are four essential parts of creating an effective spell.

  • Intention

Intention is the first thing to consider. If you are not sure about what you want to accomplish, then your spell will not work. Your intention is the whole point for doing the spell. What do you intend? What do you want to accomplish with your spell?

  • Words

Words help guide your intention. They create a map of how to do what it is you want the spell to accomplish. You must use specific words to get something done. Magic takes the path of least resistance. If you wanted to lose weight and you were not specific, you might become physically ill. Many people would agree that getting physically ill is a terrible and temporary way to lose weight.

You need to be specific in your choice of words. Perhaps, you may choose to say something like: “I lose weight by proper nutrition and exercise so that I maintain my health and get to a truly healthy weight for me.”

Remember to include an ending clause like “For this or better, and it harm none.”

  • Ingredients

As you create your spell, carefully select the ingredients or items you use. Each ingredient has its own energy, also known as the natural object’s virtue. Natural items have their own virtues that lend their powers to your spell.

  • Will

Sometimes, I say, “Will is the fuel that makes the spell ‘go.’” The Collins English Dictionary defines willpower as “the ability to control oneself and determine one’s actions.”

Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D., author of The Willpower Instinct, wrote: “Willpower is about harnessing the three powers of I will, I won’t and I want to help you to achieve your goals (and stay out of trouble).”

When it comes to successfully performing magick, willpower, to me, means the driving force of desire for some form of change. So, I focus on the power of “I will.” This is an important distinction because many people think of willpower as only the ability to avoid temptation.

Realize that you need to will something into being. This includes confidence that what you are doing shall work. If you don’t have that, your spell just won’t be effective.

You need your will for your intention to be as strong as possible. This is why when we are desperate for something, we can usually manifest it. Using your will is deeply rooted in your desire.

In summary, devote care and attention to the essential items of Intention, Words, Ingredients, and Will.

May these insights support your spiritual path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Honor Words and Meanings

“I need to get the words just right for the spell—yes?” Jessica, a new acquaintance, asked me.

I replied that precision with words will help her accomplish her goal with the spell.

You probably agree that words are important.

I’ve noticed that Wiccans pay close attention to the words “supernatural” and “natural.”

An important point is made in the 3rd Principle of The 13 Principles of Wiccan Belief as assembled by the American Council of Witches:

We acknowledge a depth of power far greater than that is apparent to the average person. Because it is far greater than ordinary it is sometimes called “supernatural”, but we see it as lying within that which is naturally potential to all. – 3rd Principle of The 13 Principles of Wiccan Belief

Wiccans pay attention to the meaning of “supernatural.” They do not feel that magick and spellwork are “supernatural.”

Here is another example of how a definition is important. Recently, Ms. Kennedy Mitchum, 22 and a recent college graduate in Iowa, wrote to the editors at Merriam-Webster to propose that their dictionary reference to “racism” be revised to reflect how systemic racism is in society. The editors have agreed to revise the definition, which had not been changed in decades.

Alex Chambers, an editor at the dictionary, replied and wrote, “…we have concluded that omitting any mention of the systemic aspects of racism promotes a certain viewpoint in itself. … It also does a disservice to readers of all races.”

We, witches, know that words have power. Our words can hurt or heal. It depends on how we use them.

Our words can combine for creating or observing meaning. Our words can be part of a solution.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How You Can Make Your Own Spells and Perform Others’ Spells, or Even Make a Book of Shadows

Making your own spells and working with spells authored by others is both simple and complex.

Here is how magick works.

Intent

To do successful magick, you need to understand several things. First, you must have intent. You need to know what you want to manifest. I know this sounds simple, but many people just don’t think the intent through.

Let’s say you want a car. Okay, why do you want a car? Is it to take you to your job? Or is it something you want to have people envy?  Hey, I don’t judge. But if you just say “I want a car” to the universe, you are likely to get that Pinto down the block.

Let’s say you just moved to a new area and you need a car to get you around. You want something nice but economical. You don’t want a piece of junk that will break down on you every chance it gets. I suggest you go shopping, perhaps, on the internet. Get to know what you want and like for your car.

When you pick out features, you’re attaching specific desires to the car. This will help manifest the car you want versus the junk heap down the block. Refine your image of the perfect car in your mind. Include other requirements you have like good gas mileage and inexpensive repair costs. The more specific you are with your intent, the less there will be unexpected results like getting the lemon down the lane.

Having a solid intent is your first step before you do any magick. Once you have that cornerstone set you can continue with the second thing which is concentration. During your spell, you will need lots of concentration and visualization.

Visualization

 We’ll continue with the process of manifesting a particular car. You can use a toy car as a visualization focus object. As you stare at the toy car, you also use your mind to imagine getting into a real car and driving it. You can even take a number of steps further. For instance, if you desire a convertible car, you imagine the wind blowing through your hair as you drive with the top down.

Concentration

This is the process of focusing and then refocusing your mind on your visualization task. In essence, you concentrate on the object and on the images in your mind that are specific for your desired manifestation. It is natural for the mind to wander at times. When it does, you just consciously redirect your mind to focus on the visualization object once again.

Meditation

Some Wiccans begin with a meditation to clear the mind before using both concentration and visualization. Consider doing a simple meditation in which you focus on your breath.

Willpower

The Collins English Dictionary defines willpower as “the ability to control oneself and determine one’s actions.”

Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D., author of The Willpower Instinct, wrote: “Willpower is about harnessing the three powers of I will, I won’t and I want to help you to achieve your goals (and stay out of trouble).”

When it comes to successfully performing magick, willpower, to me, means the driving force of desire for some form of change. So, I focus on the power of “I will.” This is an important distinction because many people think of willpower as only the ability to avoid temptation.

The compelling observation is that Wiccans, who become proficient at these three processes of visualization, concentration, and meditation, actually strengthen their will. How? Once you do the three processes, you actually enhance your belief, and you push through your doubt.

Realize, you need to will something into being. This includes confidence that what you are doing will work. If you don’t have that, your spell just won’t become a reality.

You need your will for your intent to be as strong as possible. This is why when we are desperate for something, we can usually manifest it. Using your will is deeply rooted in your desire. Lack of will just creates another belly flop.

I’ve now shared with you the five must-haves (intent, visualization, concentration, meditation, and willpower) for doing magick that works.

We use the natural energies around us to create change with Intent, Visualization, Concentration, and Will, helped by meditation.

Making your own spells

The Strongest Spells Are Ones You Create Personally

Reading books is a good start. But I suggest the strongest spells are ones you make yourself. Just because a spell is in a book doesn’t mean that it’s the right spell for the job at hand.

The Value of Customizing Your Spell

Here are the benefits you gain from customizing your spell:

  • Creating your own spells is a good way of learning the ropes.
  • You gain a better grasp of the fundamentals in Wicca as a spiritual path.
  • You become a better practitioner.
  • You tailor the spell to you and your unique situation.

Previously at my blog, I offered what I call “Moonwater’s Formula for Making a Spell”:

The following is a simplified way to create a spell.

5-Step Formula for Making a Spell

It comes down to these steps or what I call the “5 What’s”:

  1. What do you want?
  2. What element?
  3. What will represent that element?
  4. What do you have at hand?
  5. What words?
  1. What do I want?

Seems simple enough, right? Still, many people hold the thought “I want more money.” That’s too vague. What do you want the money for? Some people have a job that pays well enough, but they hate that job. So what do they do? They buy expensive stuff and vacations. Perhaps, what they really want is a job that they feel good about.

Now, ask yourself: What do I want? Then ask yourself, No….What do I really want? Keep refining it until you have it. Finding the root of the need is important.

  1. What element?

How do you pick the appropriate element? Think about your need. What element is connected to it?

  • Do you want to flow better at work? That relates to Water.
  • Do you want to think more clearly? That’s related to the element Air.
  • If you want more energy, you likely want to connect with the spark – with Fire.
  • Do you feel scattered? To connect with being grounded, focus on Earth.

Questions like these will help you pick what element is best suited for your problem or desire.

  1. What will represent that element?

What object would make a good representation of your element? If it’s Fire, perhaps, a lit candle. If it’s water, you could use a sea shell because it comes from the sea.

  1. What do you have at hand?

With a list of objects that can represent your element, take a look, and see what you have on hand that would fit the bill. Perhaps your first thought was to use a shell as part of your spell. However, you do not have one in your home. You could simply grab a bowl and fill it with water.

  1. What words?

The words you choose are important.

Here are three details to help you.

  • Choose an opening
    Here’s an example:
    By the powers of the Sun and Moon
    Give a deadline

Here’s an example:
So make this happen nine days or less
Put in the protection phrases
Here is an example:
An it harm none.

I also include “This or better.” There are times with the God and Goddess know better than we do what would be good for our overall journey of life.

Additionally, give a time period for the spell to stop. You can say something like may it come to pass within three moons. (Spells usually come to pass within one moon cycle.)

May the above details help you in forming your spell. It’s true that one may add other details to a spell. Still, the above provides you with a good start.

The various parts of your spell are like the pieces you put together when sewing a quilted blanket.”

Doing spell work is truly work. And, fortunately, you can improve your spell work skills. Use the simple processes below to improve your success rate.

Moon Phase

Many Wiccans make a big mistake of failing to look at the moon phase before doing a spell. Because Sara didn’t look at the moon when she did her prosperity spell, she missed the vital detail that the moon was waning. That’s a problem because the waning moon is for decreasing work. She did not want her income to decrease!

What could Sara have done to have more money in her purse? She could have done a spell to decrease the size of her bills.

The truth is: You can do many spells at any time if you word the spell correctly.

As many Wiccans know, the waxing moon is for increase so it would have been better if Sara waited for the waxing moon if she wanted to stay with the original form of her prosperity spell.

Days of the Week

Another strategy for making your spell more potent is to use the correct day of the week. Plan to do your spell on the day that rules what you are seeking to accomplish. Supercharge your spell work by adding the correct moon phase, day, and planetary hour. Using these strategies adds energy to your spell.

And this helps your intention, through your spell work, find its mark.

What a Book of Shadows Is and How to Make One

Book of shadows or (BOS) for short is where you store all your magickal experiences, magickal recipes, Spells, etc.

They can be anything from leather-bound books to a three-ring binder.

Making one is simple and I prefer the three-ring binder so I can move pages around and organize easier. You can also have a different book for each subject too if you want. I would suggest these categories to start with.

  • Spells
  • Herbs
  • Dreams
  • Sacred alphabets – Norse Runes, Theban, etc.
  • Recipes
  • Divination

You write down it all, your experiences, your actions, and results.

In this way, you can keep track of it all and see what works for you and what doesn’t.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Make a Sigil to Keep Them Safe and Healthy

Irises

Are you feeling down with every report about the effects of the coronavirus around the world and in your community?

You can put a magical intention on your safety and health into an object. Why would you do that? Witches do this because they want the object to hold power to help them realize a personal desire.

Making your own personal sigils is easy. Some time ago, author/artist Austin Osman Spare devised a method for creating sigils.

Since that time, a number of authors have discussed Austin Osman Spare’s process of making sigils. One book I appreciate is Frater U. D.’s Practical Sigil Magic: Creating Personal Symbols for Success.

I have made a couple of my own additions to the process.

First, throughout history, witches made sigils out of virgin parchment. But that is quite expensive. Also, if you’re vegan and will not wear leather, you will want to use something else. Why? Parchment is typically made from goatskin. So, let’s talk about a process devoid of parchment.

I use the heavier art paper, the kind that absorbs ink and which can be infused with different tinctures made with herbs. Watercolor paper is a nice choice, too.

What about inks? You could use one or of the many magickal inks on the market. My favorite is Dragons Blood Ink. But magickal inks can be expensive. So, you can make your own out of a high-grade ink such as Winsor Newton ink or India ink. To make it a magickal ink just add some essential oil to it, like myrrh. Mix and consecrate.

You can even use Sharpie pens as author Peter Paddon suggests. Just make sure to designate specific pens for only magickal work. They’ll be part of your set of magickal tools.

You can use different colors for different desires. Here is a shortlist of colors and meanings that I include in my book The Hidden Children of the Goddess [free chapter when you CLICK HERE]:

  • 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

Write out your desire on a scratch piece of paper; you can use a single word or a phrase.

For this example, I am using the words “Safety and Health.”

Cross off all of the repeat letters in “Safety and Health.” You end up with S, A, F, E, T, N, D, H and L. (You want only one of each letter that appears in the word.) Next, scramble the letters.

Now comes the fun part: Combine the letters together in an image. (I’ve also added arrows and dots.)

Can you find the letters?

In this way, you can make all sorts of sigils.

If you want to imbue it with a potion or tincture this is the time to do it. You can either soak the paper in your tincture or brush it on. Either way, you must let it dry. Overnight is best.

Now with this new image (of combined letters), inscribe it with your magical ink on your absorbent paper.

Now that you have the sigil, the next step is to breathe life into it with Pranic Breathing, also known as belly breathing. If you’re familiar with yoga, you are probably familiar with Pranic Breathing techniques. Breathe in deeply; allow your stomach to inflate. Visualize pulling up energy from the earth. When you have built up enough energy in your lungs, blow it onto the sigil. This will charge it with your energy and further empower your intention.

Now place your sigil in a safe place and forget about it. Forgetting about it is the toughest part of the whole process. This helps the magick work.

As you can see, making your own sigils is quite easy and fun. After some practice, you will be able to do them quickly and easily.

Remember to consider using sigils to further your goals and get what you really want.

How Witches Use Movement to Create Magickal Energy

Casting Circle
Casting Circle

“When you use movement, you’re creating power,” I responded to a friend after she attended her first coven gathering.

“So, that’s what you and your coven mates were doing when you all pointed your athames to the East?” she said.

I nodded.

When I was eight years old, I naturally set up an altar in the woods. I also walked around and settled quietly. Birds would approach because they found my energy to be inviting and peaceful.

As I grew older, and spiritual elders taught me about Wicca, I noticed some details about Wiccans and movement.

Here are three insights:

  1. Movement creates energy

Some covens use instruments like drums to create movement and sound. People will clap their hands and sometimes use dance to create energy. Once you’ve cleansed the area, you can use movement to create the type of energy you desire.

  1. Your body functions better when you honor it by moving

Some spiritual paths focus on the rational mind. In such paths, we notice a big emphasis on scriptures and arguing about what certain passages mean.

On the other hand, Wicca honors nature, intuition, and the temple (body) we have been given. My habit of having a daily walk helps me raise energy better when I gather with coven mates.

  1. Having a sedentary lifestyle actually hurts your spiritual practice

Neuroscientists note that the brain likes to conserve energy. Making decisions uses up energy. In fact, researchers talk about decision fatigue. By the end of the day, a person can be too tired to take a daily walk. I’ve noticed that it’s like a machine that rusts by just sitting there.

Some people like to live in their heads. Instead, Wicca calls on us to move every day. I remember a spiritual elder said, “Be a good animal.” This reminds me that my body wants to move. It was designed to move. Earlier in my life, when I was 40 pounds heavier, being heavy enticed me to just sit and not move.

Now, I’m more conscious that getting in daily exercise is part of my spiritual path. I want my body to help me create energy in rituals.

May these insights help you on your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Deal with Desperate Energy when They Cast a Prosperity Spell

“I’m afraid that if I approach doing a Prosperity Spell with the desperate energy I’m feeling, that I may sabotage the spell,” my friend, Nancy, said.

“It’s an important consideration,” I replied. “Make sure to properly deal with any Desperate Energy you have.”

I also brought to Nancy this understanding. Notice the difference between Desperate Energy (loaded with fear) and Activation Energy (loaded with positive intention.)

It is vital to ground the Desperate Energy and get it out of your way, so then you can appropriately cast a Prosperity Spell

Four Elements Related Doing a Prosperity Spell

1) Ground the Desperate Energy and Empty Your Vessel
Push the Desperate Energy down into the earth. Before you do your Prosperity Spell, visualize roots coming out of your feet and diving deep into Mother Earth.

Guide your Desperate Energy down to your feet, out into the roots and into Mother Earth. She receives the energy and safely transforms it. Then, Mother Earth can use the energy in benevolent ways.

With your Desperate Energy released, you now are an empty vessel with room for the good stuff.

2) Refill Your Empty Vessel with Good Clean Energy
Pull energy down from the Moon and Heavens through your Crown Chakra. You now fill in the space that was vacated when you grounded the Desperate Energy. Visualize that you move energy from your Crown Chakra and continue all the way down to your Root Chakra. See the energy fill all your extremities to the tips of your fingers and toes.

3) Cast Your Spell
Now that your energy has been cleansed and evened out, you are ready to cast your spell. You can now raise the clean energy that you know is pure with your positive intentions.

4) Include the Phase, “For This or Better”
Be sure to add the words, For this or better at the end of your spell. I like this clause because you invite the God and Goddess to use Their perceptions and to bless you in ways you may not perceive at this time.

Recently, I did a Prosperity Spell and in less than 20 hours, opportunities came into my family from directions that surprised me. This is an example of “this or better.

Remember to add the above elements to your ritual for enhancing your prosperity.

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Don’t Psyche Yourself Out Related to Magick

Looking shaken, my friend, Tracey, walked up to me.

“My prosperity spell went upside down. I even lost money,” she said.

I put my hand on her shoulder. “I hear you,” I began. This was the start of a valuable conversation about magick and avoiding the mistake of psyching yourself out.

Here are three insights:

  1. Beware of getting stuck in “I wonder if this will work?”

You probably have had an experience when you were focused and in the moment. It can happen while playing cards or in a basketball game. People say, “I just kept winning over and over.”

That’s a great state of being to be in. That’s the opposite of being psyched out.

We can psyche ourselves out related to magick when we let the idea “I wonder if this will work?” to take over. Doubt kills magick. If you doubt yourself and your capabilities, this will affect the power of your ritual. When you doubt, you put up a wall between you and what you desire. You’re sabotaging your own efforts.

The solutions for this situation include—first, devote meditation sessions in which you imagine and experience your goal as having already come true. Second, work with an elder. Perhaps, start small, and you’ll develop some evidence that you are getting better with magick. An elder can lead you through exercises.

  1. Don’t tell others about your magick

Watch out that people can fill you with doubt because doing effective magick is completely outside their understanding. They may fear the process you’re in. Some people even mock what they don’t understand. Additionally, doubters can block your magick with their negative energy.

  1. Beware of the psyche out element of making you feel small and powerless

When I looked up details about psyche out, I came across a story about a boxer who uses belittling taunts to psyche out his opponent. It bothers me to say: part of me, the Inner Critic, psyched me out several times.

At least now, I’m paying attention. When I have psyche out thoughts or doubt-filled thoughts, I pause and look for a positive thought to hold front and center. For example, when I had a big disaster with a hard drive (I must have brushed a trouble-making key), I shifted away from “I’m an idiot!” to “It was an accident. I’ll check cnet.com for recovery software.”

Similarly, you can choose your own positive thought to hold front and center.

May these insights help you along your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Get What They Really Need

Do you really need something? I don’t mean want; I mean need. This happens often for many of us. What is the difference?

A Want is something that you desire, but if it came right down to it, you could live without it. For example, I want a vacation in Scotland. Do I need it? No.

A Need is something we can’t live without.

Do you or a friend need a car? Some of us live in a city with a good public transportation system—mostly on time and with good coverage. Other people live in a rural area and having a vehicle is simply a necessity. With a vehicle, you can get to the doctor or your job.

Obtain a Car (or something else) Spell

What you will need:

  • Dragons Blood Ink
  • Quill
  • Cauldron
  • Bay Leaf
  • A Strip of Virgin Paper
  • Dragon’s Blood Essential Oil
  • Red chime candle
  • Dragon’s Blood Oil

When: Waxing or full moon.

Cast Circle

Bless and consecrate all your materials. Make a list of what you want. Here’s an example: “I want a car that I can afford, that has low mileage, gets good mileage per gallon, has the color I prefer …”

Write down your list with the quill and ink. Write the word “new-to-me car” or “new car” (if you desire a brand-new car) down on the bay leaf.

Fold your list around the bay leaf and drip one drop of wax from the red candle to seal it. Drip three drops of dragon’s blood essential oil on the bundle and say:

Little bundle of mine,
Listen up because it is time.
Draw for me a ____, quick and neat.
Keep me free from all deceit.
Sacred smoke now fills the air,
To the Gods to bring my care.
For this or better, as I so Will,
So Mote It Be!

Be sure the bundle burns to ashes—in the cauldron.

Cakes and wine ceremony

May you get what you need.

Blessed Be,

How Witches Can Get and Use Music in Their Rituals

Have you used music to enhance your rituals? Using music can help you raise powerful energy in your Circle. It’s a great way to step up the process—especially when you have some music with a good beat.

Music can assist you in raising more power than you normally would.

Here are some ways to add music to your ritual:

  • Pre-recorded Music

If you’re like me, and you don’t regularly play an instrument, you may find that prerecorded music is pure gold. You can choose from so many great artists’ work. You’ll find any style or mood you’d like.

  • Music Played Live

Perhaps, someone in your coven is a musician. Additionally, you could have coven mates join in with something simple like drumming, singing, chanting, or humming.

  • Use Music in a Combined Format

Consider having a coven mate who has an instrument and some recording device to record a foundation of music. That is, the person could prerecord a percussion line of music or even add a base guitar to it (depending on their recording equipment … plus one can carefully access recording software like Audacity).

For example, you could use drums to create a basic rhythm and prerecord that. Then, during ritual, you and your coven mates can sing, chant or play other instruments live.

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
