The Wiccan Path to True Friendship

Hands of different color
“Sometimes, it feels like there’s so much going on and friendships can get hurt along the way. I mean—we all get stressed out,” my friend, Joyce, said. “I’m wondering if there is a magickal way to strengthen a friendship.”

I gave this a lot of thought, and here is a True Friends Spell.

What you will need:

  • One pink candle
  • Candle-holder
  • Rose Incense
  • Rose oil
  • Two rings
  • Ritual tools

Cast Circle in the usual manner.

Dress your candle by rubbing your oil from tip to base. Cleanse and consecrate your candle and rings. Place the pink candle on your altar in its holder. Place the rings by the candle. Take your friend’s hands and both of you say over the rings together:

I swear upon my soul,

Honesty, love, and kindness I shall show.

I State my true name (_each state your name_),

That I am a true friend to you through and through.

That I will be most honest with you,

As I so will, so mote it be!!

Each person places a ring on the other person’s hand other and says:

True friends, true as can be.

Together now so mote it be!

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony

Close your Circle

May this True Friends Spell strengthen your bond with your close friend.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Wiccans “Fine-Tune” Their Intuition

“How can I practice tuning my intuition?” one of my readers asked. “Are there any spells that can help me become a little more ‘fine-tuned’ to other people’s intent, lies, etc.?”

So much is going on in this question.

First, what is intuition, really? Some definitions of intuition emphasize: “the ability when … one knows or considers [true] from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.”

Researcher Gerd Gigerenzer suggests that intuition is “data that has not risen to the conscious level.”

When I talk with fellow Wiccans, I have mentioned, “There is a difference between intuition and knowing.” The way I define knowing is: Certainty that arises from hearing the ‘voice’ of the God and Goddess. I’ve been grateful to hear the voice of the Goddess—on a number of occasions. For example, one time, I had a knowing to hold back and avoid entering a traffic intersection. That knowing saved my life because another car careened through the intersection at great speed. It surely would have smashed my car on the driver’s side, killing me.

Next, we look at “fine-tuning intuition.” I suggest that this is about getting distractions out of the way so we can clearly connect with intuition.

Author Gavin de Becker (The Gift of Fear) points out that we naturally can use our gut instincts to protect ourselves. The problem arises when we let other voices (like when someone doesn’t want to be embarrassed) to block out the voice of intuition (or gut instincts).

So, here is a Spell for Getting Distractions Out of the Way of Your Intuition.

Intuition Spell

What you will need:

  • 1 blue candle
  • Ritual tools
  • Dragon’s blood incense
  • Cakes and wine
  • Offering dishes
  • Dragon’s blood oil

 

Cast Circle in the usual manner.

Time to dress your candle: This means that you take the oil and rub it onto the candle from wick to the base of the candle.

Place the candle in holder.

As you light the candle say:

Blue candle of mine,
It is now your time.
My intuition grows as you melt away,
My intuition is here,
My intuition is clear, and now will stay.
Whispers I hear,
Intuition is near.
Guide me true.
Without distraction,
I know you.

Sit and expand your senses. Sense the whispers of intuition.

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony.

Close the Circle.

May this Intuition Spell help you walk your best path.

Blessings upon your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

“Moonwater was telling me about her weight loss program, and it sounded like something I could do that didn’t cost me more than the normal groceries I buy, anyway. I started with an egg omelet in the morning with mushrooms and spinach. … In two weeks, I lost 7 lbs. I had a couple of days of eating what I wanted but not overeating. Then right back to Goddess Style. I feel great and eat what the Goddess gives us.” – Denise Kopplinger

What if you could invite Goddess to help you lose weight? You’ll learn a system of weight loss that is NOT a diet, and you’ll be honoring the God and Goddess through the practice of Wicca. You’ll take care of yourself. You will not be hurting yourself with denial of your favorite foods all the time. You’ll even nurture yourself and feel the embrace of the Goddess. This 5-week online course is about being healthy. It’s not about being stereotypically attractive like any image portrayed in the media. In fact, Wiccans appreciate Goddess in Her many forms. High Priestess Moonwater SilverClaw reveals in this course the process in which she permanently dropped 40 pounds. Her health is better.

You will learn to provide yourself with comfort in ways that connect you with Goddess. You will transform your journey so you let go of “being big” to be safe. Moonwater writes: “I’ve learned that as I take better care of myself and I connect with God and Goddess, I do NOT need the extra weight to feel safe.”

Begin a new journey of weight loss and spiritual peace.

It’s not often a book can make me cry, but this one did by making me see the many blocks I’ve put up in my life. I knew they were there, but I’ve gotten skilled at pretending they’re not. Thank you for helping me see I’m not some freak because of circumstances throughout my life that have caused the blocks, and that i need to stop hiding from or burying them and face them one step at a time. – Crystal Sparks

A Spell to Attract New and Positive Friends

friends

One of my readers asked about how to create a spell to attract new friends.

I think the easiest spell you can do is a candle spell. Candle spells can be quite simple and yet very powerful.

Please read the spell all the way through so you can get an idea of what is happening at each step.

When doing the spell, simply hold onto the feelings of truly wanting good friends to surround you.

Note: Chime candles work well for this spell. Otherwise, you can use tea lights.

What you will need:

  • Three Pink candles
  • One loadstone (you can use a simple magnet if you do not have one)
  • One white candle.
  • Rose oil or you can use simple olive oil
  • Pen and virgin paper. (Virgin simply means unused or brand new and unmarked and untouched)
  • Lighter

 Set up.

Write the attributes of what you want in your new friends on the paper thinking of all the wonderful friends you will be attracting.

Place the paper down and put the loadstone on top of the paper. Carve your name on the white candle and rub oil on the candle from tip to base. Then place the candle in the middle of the paper next to the loadstone.

Carve the word “Friend” on each of the pink candles and rub the oil onto the candle from tip to base. Place the three pink candles in a triangle around the loadstone and white candle.

What to do.

Light the white candle and say:

One, two, three, I call out to thee!

Drop a drop of wax from the white candle onto the loadstone.

Next light one of the pink candles and say:

Lord of Life and my Lady of the Moon,
I ask of you now this simple boon.

Place a drop of wax from the pink candle onto the loadstone.

Next light the next pink candle, going around clockwise and say:

My desires are simple, and there true,
Bring me friends so loyal, true and new.

Place a drop of wax from the pink candle onto the loadstone.

Next light the last pink candle, going around clockwise and say:

Lord of Life and my Lady of the Moon,
Bring me friends healthy, sane and in tune.

Place another drop of wax from the first pink candle onto the loadstone.

By the powers of the sun, moon and sea,
In a fortnight for me to now see.

So mote it be.

Let the candles burn all the way down.

Carry the loadstone and paper in your pocket or purse.

I hope this helps you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Do you have any stories of Wiccan spells that were successful?

Athame
Athame to use in your magick

One of my readers asked, “Do you have any stories of Wiccan spells that were successful?”

I have a number of stories about successful spells. Here I’ll provide two such examples.

Spell for Separation and an Easier Divorce Process

Years ago, I was in an abusive marriage. I was afraid that in asking for a divorce, I’d open a door to even more pain and trouble.

After I said, “I want a divorce,” I did a Separation Ritual. I was surprised how my then-husband gave no trouble and simply signed the divorce papers. What a relief!

Here are the steps of True Separation:

  1. Verbally end the relationship
  2. Stay away from the person.
  3. Ground yourself.
  4. Cast circle.
  5. Do the Separation Ritual (see below).
  6. Do the Cakes and Wine ritual.
  7. Close the circle.
  8. Finally continue to have no contact with the toxic person.

You will need your usual ritual items to cast circle and your altar. As I mentioned you will also have a length of yarn or piece of red string. The yarn/string must be long enough to encircle your own waist and to encircle the object (that represents the toxic person).

The Separation Ritual

Take the object. First, your will asperge it. Asperge means to sprinkle the holy water with your fingers onto the object.

With the holy water, asperge and say:

I cleanse and consecrate you by water and earth.

Next you will cense the object. Cense means to waft incense smoke over the object.

With the incense smoke, cense and say:

I bless and charge you with air and fire.

Then take the string/yarn and cense and asperge it as well and say:

I cleanse and consecrate you by water and earth.

I bless and charge you with air and fire.

Take the red string/yarn in your hands saying:

Tiny bundle of String/yarn

You are now the same as the bonds between me and Name of person.

Tie one end of the string/yarn to the object and then encircle your waist with the other end of the string/yarn, while you say:

You are the bonds that connect us now.

From me to Name of person and from Name of person to me.

Our connection is by thee.

Sit and concentrate on the bond between you both and see it as the string/yarn that now connects you and the object. Once you have a firm connection with that thought, take the boline and cut the string/yarn, seeing in your mind’s eye the astral bonds being cut along with the string/yarn.

Once you complete the cut, say:

I am now free of the ties of Name of person as he/she is of me.

May my happiness expand, and may Name of person’s happiness expand.

Blessed be.

Finish up with the cakes and wine part of the ritual and then close the circle.

And you’re done.

Separating ourselves from toxic people is important for our happiness and well being. It even blesses the life of the other person. You are doing yourself and the other person a favor.

I trust that this ritual will help you be happier and healthier.

Second Story About a Successful Spell

At one point, my family was going through some money difficulties.

I did the following Money Spell and one of my family members got a new client!

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

 

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Pagans Overcoming Fear

anitHarmNone

“Sometimes, it just gets to be too much to bear, you know?” Merla said. At PantheaCon, we were taking a break. She told me about how she still had to hide her pentagram necklace at family gatherings. Her family held to a strict Christian point of view. If they knew her Pagan faith, she’d be denounced and disowned.

“I could put up with losing some family members. Hell, if my father never talked to me again, that would be a relief. But losing my baby sister. That would hurt. Really bad.”

I listened closely. I kept quiet mostly so that Merla could talk herself out. Merla feared losing all contact with her sister. I could relate to fear.

Have you noticed how fear can keep us stuck?

Will Merla ever come out to her family? Is her relationship with her sister strong enough so she could come out just to her sister?

These are tough questions. Maybe not coming out to her family is the right decision for Merla. I don’t know.

I do know that if you run your whole life by fear, it can really screw you up.

In my own journey, moving through fear has been truly important. Recently, I gave a speech. Here is the text of that speech:

*  *  *  *  *  *

“Have you ever been so scared that fear stopped you cold?

I have!

At 15 years old, I wanted to be a writer, but I had dyslexia.

Writing scared me.

Why? Because I never had regular English classes. I was in the Special Ed group. I never learned how to break down a sentence. Or to write a “proper paragraph.”

Writing scared me. So I shut down for over 20 years and didn’t do my dream.

I have 3 Big Ideas to share with you tonight.

The first one is: “You don’t have to believe. You just have to act.”

Let me share how this worked in my life. I have a friend who knew an Acquisitions Editor at a top publishing company. I knew the books that came from this publisher. I really wanted to write for this publisher.

This is the dream for a wannabe writer like me. The one big opportunity. So I went to their website to find out what I needed to submit to the publisher. Under the tab “submissions” it said that I had to submit a complete manuscript of the book.

Write a whole book?! Are you crazy? I can’t even write a paragraph.

But then I had an idea. “Just one step.” Did I believe I could write a book. No. What could I do? One step. Write a paragraph. Another step. Write a second paragraph. Then, write a short blog post. One more step. Write a second blog post for the second week of the blog.

One year later. 52 blog posts done. Now, I had most of the material for a book.

What did I learn? “JUST ONE STEP.” Just one step at a time is all I needed.

You don’t have to believe; you just have to act.

Here’s my 2nd Big Idea for you tonight.

I have dyslexia. Can I polish my writing on my own?

No.

So I came up with this idea–my 3rd idea for you tonight: The Power of Me Expands to the Power of We.

In my case, “We” means that I write the first draft. It’s all my ideas, my content—what comes from my heart.

Then I bring in my editor. Then I had other team members like a fact checker and a proofreader. So let’s go over those Big Ideas:

1) JUST ONE STEP and
2) The Power of ME expands to the Power of WE.

Now, I invite you to think of something you want. Something you want to try. Something you want to experience. Think of One Step in the direction of what you want.

Yes—Doing a Google Search counts!

JUST ONE STEP.

Say that with me now. All together: JUST … ONE … STEP …

I know this works. I’m living proof. The dyslexic who has written 4 books.

And let’s all remember: “The Power of ME expands to The Power of WE.”

Look around. We’re all gathered tonight. We’re supporting each other. During the networking time, you could meet someone who can help you – and you could help that person in return.

What is possible? More than you think. Remember: Just One Step and the Power of WE.
Thank you.”

*  *  *  *  *  *

In my above speech, I talked about how I dealt with fear by taking small steps forward.

In your spiritual path, what small steps can you take forward? Do you wish to connect with more Pagans? You might go to Cog.org [website of Covenant of the Goddess].

Another valuable website is witchvox.com

You could also connect with me at askawitchnow@gmail.com

If you can find your way to California, usually in February, you can attend PantheaCon.

I invite you to find other Pagans and build your own circle of support.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

See the Truth

Blind

“Now, do you believe?!” my sweetie said to me, as the plane lifted from the ground.

“Yeah, I do,” I replied.

For months, he said that we would take a plane, cross the country and then take a ship and finally walk on the ocean floor.

Because of dealing with depression symptoms, it was hard for me to really believe that our trip would actually take place. In a way, you might say my depression symptoms blocked me from seeing the possibilities.

This reminds me of the classic story in which blind men gathered to experience an elephant.

“It’s a pillar,” said the blind man embracing one leg.
“No, a hand fan,” said another holding an ear.
“You’re wrong, a rope,” said another.
“No, a wall.”
“A solid pipe,” said the one holding the tusk.

A wise man approached and explained, “You’re all right. You all experienced a part of the elephant. The elephant is all that you said and more.”

Finally, the blind men stopped arguing.

The same, I believe, is true about Deity. Everyone has a piece of the ALL. And what they don’t see is that it is all connected. It’s the same ALL that everyone else has. But they are experiencing the ALL in different ways, and this selective experience creates different practices and beliefs around the world.

So when I hear someone say that he knows the one and only God, I pause. I think of the elephant which is more than the sum of the parts.

Yes, I believe the God and Goddess are part of the ALL. But still I realize that Deity is more than my momentary perception.

And I’d invite anyone else to consider that other people are experiencing Deity in a way that suits them at the moment.

Let’s celebrate our shared opportunity to grow in spirit.

Blessings,

Moonwater SilverClaw
