How Witches Stay Strong in Tough Times – Use Spiritual Tools

“Surgery again?” my friend, Kim, asked.

“This time went better,” I replied.

Years ago, when I had my first surgery that removed my spleen, I did not ask the Gods for Their intervention. I’m still surprised about that.

In recent days, I had surgery again. It was significant because the surgical team used anesthesia to have me fully unconscious.

For this surgery, I put my spiritual tools into action.

I have three insights for you:

  1. Talk with the Goddess

In my previous surgery, I just resigned myself that I would either live or die.

This time, I talked to the Goddess and asked Her to keep me safe. During a quiet time as I talked with the Goddess, deep in my heart, I felt Her support. I had the feeling of being serene and that everything was going to be just fine.

I invite you to use prayer, and you can just speak to the Goddess in your own thoughts.

  1. Ask your community for support with rituals and prayer

I invited people in my circle to do a candle ritual to support me to have a successful surgery, to keep me safe, and to keep me free of surgical complications.

  1. Consider divinatory tools

When I spread the Tarot cards, I saw a positive message. This message was clear and to the point: I was going to be okay. The positive reading helped me feel secure in that I was going to flow well through surgery and the healing process.

(Special Note: If you have a reading that causes you discomfort, then turn to the Gods for Their guidance. You can ask for the Gods’ intervention.)

I invite you to turn to your spiritual path and spiritual tools during the big and tough situations of life. Ask the Gods for help. You are likely to find that They help you achieve peace where strife may be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Focus on the Essentials and Avoid Big Mistakes

“What kind of information would have been most helpful when starting to learn the Craft? What kind of fundamental information would be most beneficial?” one of my readers asked.

I immediately thought of guidelines. Here is a partial list. Each item will have a brief comment from me.

  • Honor the Earth, the beings of this Earth, and the Gods.

Wicca is a spiritual path of respect for Nature and the Gods. So many people first focus on magick. That is an error. We focus on the spiritual aspects first. Wicca is not simply ordering from a menu of the cosmic restaurant.

  • Use protection clauses in your spellwork.

It is important to use protection clauses because magick can have big consequences. You can say, “This or better.” Another clause is: “And it harm none.”

  • Get permission before you do spellwork related to anyone

Even when you’re doing a healing spell, do the ethical thing and ask the person for his or her permission.

  • Take care with The Wiccan Rede

The classic form of The Wiccan Rede is: “Eight words the Wiccan Rede fulfill, An it harm none do what ye will” as written by Doreen Valiente. This serves as a guideline. Yes, we brush our teeth and harm bacteria. Still, the Goddess agrees with good dental hygiene.

The Wiccan Rede remains a good guideline because we are here to be supportive and kind.

  • In your spellwork, always dismiss any entities (this includes Elementals) before you complete your spellwork.

In other blog posts, I have noted that failing to dismiss the Water Elementals can lead to plumbing problems in one’s home. (I was alerted to this problem by one of my spiritual elders.) Be sure to dismiss any entities that you call into your Circle.

  • If you consider someone as a mentor, ask other people: “If you had to work with that person again, would you?”

This question gets the person who offers a referral to pause and think about the potential mentor. Some people are knowledgeable, but they still cause unnecessary problems. Be careful about who you associate with.

  • Read several sources for different points of view on Wicca and witchcraft. Double-check your sources.

Recently, a friend was hit with trouble from a scammer. This reminds me of how several quotes on the Internet are mislabeled. Inaccuracies can cause real trouble in spellwork and for your personal credibility in the Wiccan community. Double-check sources. Conduct searches and consult spiritual elders to get a more accurate view.

The above is a partial list. Still, it covers some essential, foundational elements.

May these insights support your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Deal with Televised and Social Media Cruelty

“I know I should let go, but I’m stuck,” I told my friend, Sarah.

It had been another bitter morning caused by one of my family members. This guy just spewed bitter garbage criticizing another family member.

So, I was upset by the mean comments said in my household.
At the same time, Sarah was upset because she had seen a morning televised report about how some idiot had abused a cat. The cat soon died.

This led to a discussion about Goddess’s grace, letting go and even shielding ourselves.

I have three insights for you…

  1. Choose self-care.

The Lord and Lady want you to be happy.

“For mine is the ecstasy of the spirit and mine also is joy on earth; for my Law is Love unto all Beings.” – Doreen Valiente, writing in the voice of the Goddess, in The Charge of the Goddess

The Gods want you to be free of continual stress. They understand that you will have challenges and obstacles to overcome. They know that it’s important for you to take care of yourself. Each of us must discover what works as personal self-care. Such self-care will help you let go of stress and become healthier.

In this post, I will share specifics about shielding, letting go, and dealing with the triggers that televised/social media cruelty presses upon us.

  1. Discover shielding and letting go.

To help you shield yourself, I developed the InstaCircle.

How to Do an InstaCircle

Using your power hand (that is, your dominant hand), trace the Circle three times around and above your head.

I cast my Circle thrice,
round, round and round.

Point your index finger up to the heavens and then pull energy down to the ground.

Let no bane get in,
From heavens to ground.

That completes your InstaCircle and your energy-shield.

  1. When you’re triggered, seek the strength of the Goddess.

Have you noticed how often televised news broadcasts and much of social media features a communication designed to trigger the audience?

Unfortunately, many people seek to use triggers to manipulate the audience. Triggers create fear, disgust and anger.

When you find yourself triggered, bring Goddess into your awareness.

When I talk to the Goddess who soothes me, I get a better connection with Her. Simply talking, in your mind, to Goddess can empower you on a daily basis. You can also grow in your relationship with Her through rituals and meditation.

You can say:

Dear Goddess,
Help me strengthen my resolve.
Release me from stress.
Let me bring the best of myself
To each moment of life.

Since you can observe how certain televised broadcasts/social media trigger you, a crucial plan is to reduce your exposure to said televised broadcasts/social media.

Some of us find ourselves having nightmares.

It’s valuable to bring Goddess into a process of settling to sleep.

You can say:

Lovely Lady,
Guide me to sleep tonight.
Give me rest
For I am safe
And whole in this moment.
I rest in Your arms.
You bless me, and I am grateful.
So Mote It Be.

For many of us, it is vital to stay away from screens (TV and devices) for two hours before sleep, so we can have restful sleep.

Special Note: We realize that terrible things are going on in this world. We must learn to shift and shield ourselves. We can also develop what I call Action-Hope. For example, I was concerned about animal cruelty. So, for years I volunteered the Peninsula Humane Society. I was part of the answer in that I cared for small animals for a portion of each week. Later, I went to another Humane Society facility so I could adopt my cat, Magick, when he was a kitten.

Goddess knows that we need rest and to shift into an empowered state of being.

Also, you can connect with other resources. For dealing with my own depression symptoms, I have therapy and appropriate medication to support my health.

May these insights support you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Find Freedom, Inspiration and Creativity from the Gods

“I feel trapped. All of this trouble with my elderly parents. I just want to reduce any suffering they might feel,” my friend, Sandra, said.

This started my thoughts about freedom as the opposed to being trapped.

“Asking questions is a means of becoming free.” – Gerald Benedict

I have three insights for you…

  1. Consider the personalities of the Gods, which may free you to express yourself.

Which Gods and Goddesses can help you express yourself?

Here are a few thoughts about some of the Gods:

  • Apollo – the God of music, dance, poetry, truth, prophecy, healing, and more
  • Brigid – the Goddess of wisdom, healing, poetry, protection, blacksmithing and more
  • Bragi – the God of fluency of speech and skill with words
  • Athena – the Goddess of arts and crafts (also the Inventor of the bit, bridle, wagon, and chariot) and more

You may find that you resonate with certain Gods and Goddesses. Creating relationships with Them can serve as a great way to start the creative process.

  1. Ask the Goddess for Guidance.

Asking the Goddess for guidance is a good idea if you are stuck and don’t know where to start.

You can pray, meditate, or use your favorite divinatory tool. The Goddess wants to help you. All you need to do is sit quietly and listen.

Here are questions to ask the Goddess:

  1. How can I let go and just do the creative work?
  2. What other facets can I explore?
  3. What other things may I find enjoyable?

Sometimes, an artist, or anyone creating something, may feel stuck but try to push through.

I’ve learned that it helps to rest. To pause. To connect with the Goddess. It helps to let go of the feelings of “this must get done now!”

Give your intuition time to work. Then your creative juices may flow.

The Goddess waits for your invitation for Her to enhance your creativity.

  1. Ask the God for strength and will.

The God will lend His strength and will to you. After the Goddess gives you the gift of Her Grace, you can move forward with your will to get things done. Doing a ritual for your project can strengthen your resolve.

Dedicating your art to the Gods can help you create sacred art. For example, you can Cast Circle around your workstation or art room and then do the creative work inside the Circle. Consider dedicating your work to the Gods.

In summary, here are questions we explored:

  1. Which Gods and Goddesses can help you express yourself?
  2. How can I let go and just do the creative work?
  3. What other facets can I explore?
  4. What other things may I find enjoyable?

May these insights support you on your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Grow Beyond Tough Situations

“Your cat has diabetes,” the veterinarian said.

I shook my head, concerned that I could lose my dear companion.

“You’ll need to give him a shot of insulin in the morning and at night,” the veterinarian continued.

I discovered that I had to be precise with giving my cat, Magick, his insulin shots, or he could die at a young age for a cat.

This forced me to get up significantly earlier and go to sleep earlier.

It felt like a real burden. But then I discovered that having a precise schedule for going to sleep and for awakening trained my body. It was possible to get better sleep on a rigid schedule.

I have three insights for you…

  1. What bothers you may make you grow.

My depression symptoms are so painful. However, if I didn’t have to face this trouble for years, I may not be as strong as I am today. I’ve learned to have compassion and patience. I have gained endurance.

Additionally, I deal with dyslexia. It bothers me that I can’t read well and comprehend things in writing the way other people do. But I have learned to not give up. I keep learning about writing. I have also learned to work hard at my studies.

As I face depression symptoms and dyslexia, I find that I have become a stronger, kinder person. 

  1. Find a way to transform the tough moment into a “growing moment.”

Have ever you felt resentment when a friend or family member told you, “This is something that you’ll outgrow. It won’t mean much to you next year”?

I heard this Chinese adage: “If your horse dies, get off it.”

This reminds me to stop doing something that is not working.

Over the years, dealing with dyslexia, I had to press on and find different ways to learn what I wanted to learn.

If studying in a certain way isn’t working, I invite you to change your approach.

You can apply this process of “get off the dead horse” and move on—to how you do witchcraft.

Let’s say you’re doing some spells you found in a book, and things have not gone well.

This may be a sign that it’s time for you to do something new. Perhaps, you want to look into other resources. You may want to listen to your own intuition and to change your own words. (Special Note: Be sure to keep certain protection clauses in your spellwork. For example, “An it harm none” and “For this or better.”)

  1. Turn to the Gods for support through the “growing pains.”

Much of our growing pains in life can be soothed by the God and Goddess.

They understand that living is hard in many cases. We all endure some measure of pain, sadness, and stress. When problems come up and the pain of the issues become overwhelming, turn to the Gods.

I know that when I am having problems, the Gods are always here for me.

I talk to Them, and They give me comfort and support.

I invite you to have consistent daily practices. Perhaps, you’ll have a daily meditation session or prayer session to invite the Gods to support you.

May these insights support you on your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Push Back about People Who Manipulate through Religion

Beware of Dark Alleys

“Wow! That was close. I almost got hurt,” my friend, Samantha, said. She explained that she has a business, and she received a document that looked official. It was a scam. When she examined the document, she found in small print that “this is not a government document.”

But her main point was that the document began with “a penalty of $250” if one does not “pay $120 now.” She was afraid of losing money.

Samantha even noticed that the envelope had the words “not a government document.”

She had barely saved herself from being manipulated. Samantha then made a comment about how certain individuals use manipulation related to religion.

Here are three insights:

  1. Push back against manipulation through fear.

The manipulator uses the weapon of fear. They will use fear upon you—without mercy. My friend, Samantha, felt fear when seeing the false document from the scammer.

The manipulator use tries to get us afraid of pain, loss, or hardship. They use fear to pry open people’s wallets and to get them to do things they normally wouldn’t do.

Witches notice that a number of religions and/or sects emphasize that “one is a sinner” and “you must follow these rules or you’re going to hell.”

On the other hand, witches can pause and ask appropriate questions. Before you act, ask yourself…

  • Would the Gods approve of this?
  • Is this in line with the grace and kindness of the Goddess?
  • Is this in line with my spiritual path?
  • Do I have a spiritual elder to talk with before I take action?

When a manipulator tries to use fear on you, pause and think things through. Ask, “Why are they using fear? What do they get out of it? How do they win if they control my behavior?”

  1. Put up a shield.

You can also use the InstaCircle for quick shielding against negative energies. Here’s the process:

The InstaCircle Chant for Shielding

As you say this chant, you will take your power hand, (usually your dominant hand) and trace a Circle three times above and around your head. When you do the movements, you will envision the energy streaming from your index finger.

Soon, you will point to the heavens and pull the energy from there to the ground.

Here is the InstaCircle process with the movements:

Using your power hand, trace the Circle three times.

I cast my Circle thrice,
round, round and round.

Point your index finger up to the heavens and then pull energy down to the ground.

Let no bane get in,
From heavens to ground.

 

The InstaCircle can support you by shielding you from negative energies.

  1. Strengthen your bonds with the Gods so you guard against manipulation.

Having a strong relationship with the Gods can uplift you with Their positive energies.

You’ll need to stay strong, rested, and healthy so you can make better decisions. I’m so glad that Samantha was wide-awake to avoid being scammed. Other people might not pause long enough to see the small indicators (“this is not a government document”) that gave clues to the scam.

The Gods’ guidance will help you stay on a positive spiritual path.

Listen to your heart because the Gods reside there.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Find Hidden Truths that Brighten Your Path

My friend looked at me, a question in her eyes: How do I know?

Clearly uncomfortable, she had no question to offer before rolling the Divinatory Dice.

I realized that questions often reveal the horizon and shine light on a new path.

Here are three insights:

  1. Consider Divinatory Practices.

Divinatory Practices include The Tarot, the pendulum, dice, and more.

These practices can use the insights of the Gods and give us access to our own intuition.

Special Note: Realize that what arises at the moment is only a snapshot of what the future might hold at this instant. You could have a new thought, which could lead to a new future outcome. That’s why it’s valuable to check different methods of divination. Often, it is good to wait for the next day to ask the same question. Consider doing meditation and ask the Gods for Their guidance.

  1. Quickly jot down three questions.

An important practice is to quickly blurt out three questions. Why? Sometimes, we can get tangled up in our rational thinking. This can limit what arises in our consciousness.

Some people get so caught up in the past—past thoughts, past feelings, past resentments, and past regrets. That’s why it helps to blurt out your three questions. Pick one of the questions. Use a divinatory tool, and then write down its feedback.

  1. Ask the Gods for guidance related to meaning.

I’ve learned that it is important to release oneself from fear and to invite the Gods to show a path that includes contentment and creativity.

When I came across this phrase, You are love discovering itself, I recalled that the Gods have placed divinity within us.

It’s that spark of life that we each have, that part of us that is divine. We all have a piece of the Gods within us. That is the part we “hear” speaking to us in our hearts. What does anything mean in our life? Listen for the Gods’ insights.

We are, in a way, the Gods experiencing life/love through us. Learning to love ourselves is learning to remember our love for the Gods.

May these insights help you on your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Reignite Love

Element of Fire
(thanks to photographer Arthur)

In recent months, a number of heartbroken people have asked for help to reignite love. Some turn to certain individuals to do “a love spell.” As you’ll see in this post, focusing on self-love and the Gods brings some peace and calm.

Here are three insights:

  1. Avoid trying to change the other person.

The first thing to focus on is that it is unethical to attempt to do a love spell and try to do something that is against another person’s will.

You have probably noticed that when you attempt to push someone, you get what you do not want—resistance.

It is better to attract the person. Attract their interest.

How do we do that? We focus on rituals and meditation that are focused on enhancing our own personal aliveness and attractiveness.

  1. It’s about bringing the other person close and enhancing your attractiveness.

We’re talking about reigniting love, so this is about a relationship that worked earlier. People come together because of mutual attraction.

In a long-term relationship, it becomes a dance. One partner pursues, and the other person at times draws back. The hope is that this fluctuation does not become too extreme.

To reignite love, you can look at what were your personal attractive qualities. Were you a good listener? Did you make your partner feel strong, intelligent, important, even sexy?

Perhaps, you’re in a time now in which stress (personal or even medical) has upset the balance. Some witches fortify their personal balance and health by doing meditation and rituals to invite the Gods’ support.

Being attractive and feeling attractive does not work if you are upside down.

To bring another person close, you need to be attentive to their needs.

“[Your partner needs answers] to these questions: Can I reach you? (Accessibility) … Can I rely on you to respond and care about my feelings? (Responsiveness) … Will you value me, put me first, and stay close? (Engagement).” – Dr. Sue Johnson

Because of how tough life can be and how we go through rough phases, it can be truly difficult to have the energy to be attentive to your partner’s needs. Still, it is a critical process. Some people find it necessary to get counseling so they have someone else to talk to.

  1. Ask the Gods to help release those elements that block your natural attractiveness.

Here is a candle ritual to help you strengthen yourself, enhance your attractiveness and support the bond you share with your partner.

First, use olive oil and “dress the candle”—that is, you apply the oil from the wick to the base. Be sure to use only a small amount of olive oil on the white candle.

Set up your candle so you can safely light it.

Prayer for Reigniting Love Ritual

Lord and Lady,
Thank you for Your support.
Guide me to respond and
Not react in this time.
Give me Your strength.
Enhance my attractiveness.
Bring my [partner] and me closer.
Enhance our feelings of love.
Let us recapture the feelings of joy
And aliveness we knew before—
And have our feelings now blossom
Into this new form of deeper love.
Replace my fear with
Openness, curiosity, and warmth.
Have my [partner] wake up to
This new chapter for us.
Release us from the shackles of
Disappointment, conflict, and fear.
Lord and Lady,
Reignite our love,
Strengthen our bond,
And have joy return to our hearts.
For this or better.
So mote it be.

Be certain to safely burn the candle all the way down until it is extinguished on its own. (Safety tip: Do not leave a lit candle unattended.)

May these insights help you on your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Experience the Truth of “Your Fight May Be Someone’s Light”

My boyfriend broke through the door to find me on the floor, a blade in one hand, a wound on my arm, and my blood on the floor. I had cut myself, as a way to relieve my emotional pain. This is called self-injury.

Minutes later, he told me, “I can endure a lot. But the cutting, I can’t take that.”

In the next days, I realized what was at stake. The love of my life told me the truth.

I resolved to eliminate cutting-behavior from my life. Through a struggle, I did remove the cutting-behavior out of our lives.

My boyfriend (now husband) and I are together for more than 20 years.

I share this story because I know that healing and hope are real.

I have three insights for you:

  1. Learn to be a source of light.

As we struggle through life, we witches notice it’s not easier just because of our spiritual path. Many of us talk about how life as a witch can be tougher.

During moments of struggle, it’s hard to shine while we feel alone and in the darkness.

To be a source of light, we must turn and face the light—the divinity the Gods placed within us. From this place of knowing, we can remember that our struggle may be a possible source of inspiration to someone else in the future. One day, the phrase: Your fight may be someone’s light appeared in my consciousness. This became part of my process to create a course called Spiritual Solution for Depression Relief.

I felt part of my emotional burden ease off as I realized that I had a purpose. My lessons in dealing with depression symptoms could be used to support others facing hard times with depression and pain.

As I worked on the online course with my editor, I felt my light grow with every audio recording and edited video.

In the years of writing 9 books, recording podcast episodes, and creating online courses, I’ve learned that my inner divinity was needed to light up dark places.

What are dark places in your experience, and how might you express your own creativity?

  1. Know your purpose.

Many people want to know their purpose. Some people spend years yearning to know the answer.

So how do we find our purpose? Ask and observe. You can ask the Gods.

You can observe what gives you joy. What gifts have you been given? I’ve noticed that the intersection of gifts and joy can be one indication of something that is purpose-focused in your life.

What brings you joy? What are your gifts? How can you bring these together?

  1. Ask the Gods for guidance.

Here is an essential part of the path of the witch: Ask the Gods for guidance on your purpose and how you can be a light for others.

Many of us, witches, serve as healers, supporters for helping others find their truth, and activists for worthy causes.

Consider having a regular meditation practice. Some witches choose the Tarot or another form of divination to seek possible answers from the God and Goddess.

Let’s return to the phrase: Your fight may be someone’s light. Witches, as healers, often help people by providing support and comfort.

How will you be kind to another person?

May these insights support you on your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Raise Energy and Power through Simple Actions

“I seem to let my tiredness stop me from doing rituals,” Sarah, an acquaintance, said.

“I’ve learned that ‘simple’ can be powerful,” I replied. This led to an important conversation.

Here are three insights:

  1. Simple can be powerful.

To do magick, it takes focused attention. When you focus on a few, simple details, this concentrates your efforts. Essential details include Casting Circle, calling in the Elementals, inviting the Gods in, dismissing the Elementals at the end of the ritual … and more.

  1. Complexity can scatter your energy.

I’ve noticed that doing a complex ritual can potentially trip you up with concerns about getting each little step right. The more pieces you have to your ritual, the more your energy is diverted to those individual pieces. Your focus can be scattered away from the true work of your ritual.

For example, let’s say you’re doing a candle ritual to manifest something good in your life. However, you got the notion to do more than dressing the candle. You might add complex chants or advanced methods of decorating the candle during the ritual.

Realize that the more “moving parts” you put into a ritual, the more things can go wrong.

Let’s return to the idea of simple can be powerful.

  1. Pay attention to “when” as much as “how.”

If you want your ritual to bring something to you, you do the ritual during the waxing moon.

If you want to get rid of something, you do your ritual during the waning moon.

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. Here is an abbreviated list of the days, Deities, and what they rule.

Sunday – Helios – Prosperity, power, strength, vitality, honor, passion

Monday – Diana – Agriculture, childbirth, instinct, a woman’s cycles, secrets

Tuesday – Mars – Conflict resolution, drive, war, domination, justice, protection

Wednesday – Mercury – intellect, communication, mind, and intellectual pursuits, law and court cases

Thursday – Jupiter – Travel, wisdom, animals, gambling, increase

Friday – Venus – Love spells, feminine issues, emotions, marriage

Saturday – Saturn – Discipline, responsibility, hard work

Planetary Hours

The Planetary Hours can help boost your magick with the energy of the planets.

Planetary Hours of the Day 
Hour Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday
1 Sun Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter Venus Saturn
2 Venus Saturn Sun Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter
3 Mercury Jupiter Venus Saturn Sun Moon Mars
4 Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter Venus Saturn Sun
5 Saturn Sun Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter Venus
6 Jupiter Venus Saturn Sun Moon Mars Mercury
7 Mars Mercury Jupiter Venus Saturn Sun Moon
8 Sun Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter Venus Saturn
9 Venus Saturn Sun Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter
10 Mercury Jupiter Venus Saturn Sun Moon Mars
11 Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter Venus Saturn Venus
12 Saturn Sun Moon Mars Mercury Jupiter Mercury

Supercharge your spellwork by adding the correct moon phase, day, and planetary hour. Using these strategies adds energy to your spell. Then you can create the life you desire.
