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

How Witches Make a Choice Related to a Big Risk

“Take a new job? Start my own business? I don’t know what to do,” my friend, Alicia, said.

My first thought was about how people often think that a choice is “binary” – this or that – yes or no.

We had a good conversation that stayed with me.

Here are some insights when you face choices involving risk:

 

1.Consult an Elder

When taking a risk, consider seeking the counsel of an elder.

In many cases, if you talk with an appropriate elder, you’ll find someone who has walked the path before you.

(I will make an important distinction here: If you want to do a particular thing in the mundane world, choose an elder who has personally done such tasks.)

An appropriate elder has seen the road and the dangers ahead, and they can guide you on the correct path.

Witches honor the sage counsel of our elders. We see them as representing the Crone aspect of the Goddess. The Crone has wisdom and can help on the path before us.

 

2.Consult the Tarot or another Divination Tool

If you have a big choice with a significant risk attached, it is good to consult your divination tool. I have consulted my Tarot cards when I needed guidance on the path for my own choices.

 

3.Consult the Gods

You can ask the Gods for help in choosing to take the risk. Meditation is a good way to invite a conversation with your chosen Deity.

I ask the Goddess for help often in meditation and in prayer.

You can ask: “If it’s best for me to choose ‘A’, let me see a _____.”

You can suggest a timetable like: “If the answer is ‘A,’ may I see three blue cars this afternoon.”

Here is a prayer for asking for the Gods’ guidance:

 

Guidance Prayer

May my choice be clear.

Let me not fear,

for the Gods are always near.

So Mote it Be.

 

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,

Moonwater

“I’m Not Broken” – How Goddess Believes In You

Imagine a moment when you find that the world feels different to you. Some people call this an Aha Moment.

Recently, I had an Aha Moment. Since I deal with depression symptoms, I have often felt “broken.”

Have you ever felt broken? Has someone you care about called you “broken”? If so, you know what I’m talking about.

Then the Aha Moment kicked in: You and I were made how we are for some kind of purpose. Goddess doesn’t make junk.

Here are three insights:

1. What gift has depression (or some other thing you struggle with) given you?

Just today, I said to a family member, “What depression has given me is compassion for others. I understand struggle. And when I see someone struggling, I can relate to them.”

I think the Gods give us struggles to help us learn and grow. Struggle is a teaching tool that the Gods use for us. Yes, we can feel real pain during our struggle. Sometimes, the lesson is to seek and receive some support. I’ve also learned that giving some support to someone can give me some relief—for a time. It’s like playing a musical instrument blesses the audience and the musician simultaneously.

2. Goddess does not make junk—so you were made the way you are on purpose.

I know it might be hard to see the value you have inside when you feel broken.

Pause for a moment. Realize that you are made to order. You may feel that you have flaws that are choking your life. The surprise can be that the Gods have given you some difficulty so you can learn and rise to a higher level. There is a reason. Usually a teaching one.

Realize that Goddess made you. Goddess Believes in You.

3. Imagine how your struggles may light the way for others to have some positive outcomes.

I have a phrase: Your fight may be someone’s light.

By this I mean, if you show other people that it is possible to resist and carry on, you’re giving them inspiration.

I have a family member who deals with chronic pain. I’m inspired by how he maintains—most of the time—a cheerful approach to life. His fight is someone’s light.

My thought is that your fight can serve as inspiration to give another person hope that they can endure and rise. You inspire them to carry on and learn their own lessons.

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Handle Having No Energy for Ritual

How many times have you had a fleeting thought of “I should do a ritual”—but you just didn’t have the energy?

Just five minutes ago, I thought, “I should light a candle for Squat (Goddess of parking spaces).” For a moment, I felt—oh, just let me stay in this chair for a few more minutes. Fortunately, I mustered the energy to rise and light the candle in thanksgiving for Squat’s kindness.

Here are some insights about gathering energy so you do the rituals to bless your life.

  • Do you need more sleep?

So many of us are existing on the edge of not enough sleep to function. You could be stressed out. How ironic that when we need sleep the most, we find that we have trouble sleeping. I found these actions to help. Before going to bed, I’ve had a nice cup of chamomile tea. Sometimes, I have a glass of milk. Ask the Gods for their help when you lay down for sleep.

Double-check if you’re experiencing medical difficulties that cause sleep trouble. I saw a doctor and discovered that I need a CPAP machine to help me deal with sleep apnea. I find that the CPAP machine really helps. (It also removes my snoring!)

  • Make your ritual simple and a routine.

Human beings can get something done when it is a simple routine. When X happens, I do Y. For example, if a friend asks for my spiritual support, I do a candle lighting ritual (To see an example of a Candle Healing Spell—click here.) It takes little time, and I do not need much energy to complete it.

  • Do ritual with fellow covenmates on a regular schedule.

Sometimes, we just need help from friends. If you find you’re going through a tough time and you have just a bit of energy to function, then reach out to fellow witches. Perhaps, join a coven. Or if you already belong to a coven, ask your covenmates to join you in doing a ritual. It’s even better when you do rituals, perhaps, two times each month. This regular schedule builds relationships. Additionally, the energy you and covenmates raise will be substantially more than you could create alone.

May this process bless your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Deal with Having No Choices

“I have no choice about this,” my friend, Steve, said.

I immediately thought, Is that true? Does he have no choices?

Maybe you’ve been in a similar situation when you wanted to offer some ideas to a friend, but you could feel it … the friend just wanted to vent. They were not open to hearing new or different ideas.

The good news is that we can turn to the Gods when we, personally, feel confused or feel that we have no choices.

Here are three helpful insights:

  1. Invite the Gods to reveal your hidden choices.

Say a prayer and ask the Gods, “Please reveal to me some positive choices I have that seem hidden to me now.”

You can also use a divination tool like a pendulum or Tarot Cards. Ask the Gods to guide you while using the tool.

How to Use a Pendulum

You’ll use a chain with a stone attached at the end. Hold the end of the chain and have the stone (crystal, precious metals, etc.) dangle over a sheet of paper with your two choices inscribed.

Loop the chain over your middle finger. Hold still. Declare that if the appropriate choice is “A,” then the stone will rock vertically (flowing toward your abdomen and away). Also, declare if the correct choice is “B,” then the stone will rock horizontally. Ask the Gods to show you the correct answer. Hold still and see what answer you get.

  1. Invite the Gods to strengthen you when it is a tough but valuable choice.

The Gods care about you. They know of the path you need to tread. It may not be the path that is easy, and it may not be the path that you preferred.

However, it’s the path that calls you—if you can hear it. Ask the Gods to strengthen you and to remove distractions so you can hear the call of the path aligned with your destiny.

It’s important to walk your Destiny Path for your own personal growth. We have lessons here during this incarnation.

  1. Invite the Gods to walk with you.

Invite the Gods to support you and walk with you on your True Path. You can do this through prayer, ritual, or simply by talking (in your mind) to the Gods. Consider taking a walk in nature and enjoying such an internal conversation with the Gods. Ask what you need to learn on this journey. Ask Them to clarify your answer. Additionally, you can ask the Gods to move any obstacle out of your way.

May this process bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Develop Protection for Traveling via Public Transit

 

“I’m dreading taking the BART (the subway in the San Francisco Bay Area),” my friend, Olivia, said.

“Something in particular?” I asked.

“The last two times, some guy was stumbling around talking to people. These guys were strange—even scary. I was thinking—please don’t talk to me. Please don’t talk to me,” she said, her face wincing at the memory.

I can relate in that I’ve been using public transit recently. It feels like a gamble to take public transit. You could be late, verbally abused or worse.

So how can witchcraft help?

I ground and center before traveling. Additionally, I put up my energy-shield at the beginning of my journey with the InstaCircle.

How to Do an InstaCircle

Using your power hand (this would be 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.

 


Next, I say this prayer:

The Safe Travels Prayer

Dark Mistress of the Waning Moon, and
O Hairy Horned Lord of death and rebirth.
Give me Your protection during this journey,
Keep all troubles that come my way at bay.
As I do Will, So, Mote It Be


May this process bless your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
