How Witches Deal with Anger and Spellcasting

“I am furious,” my friend, Natalie, said.

I listened carefully and learned about the terrible things three people were doing that caused her trouble. I truly empathized with her position. I could relate that she felt her anger was justified.

Then she said something that gave me pause.

“I’m concerned that if I do any spellcasting in this frame of mind, I’ll create a karmic backlash on myself,” Natalie said.

I talked with spiritual elders about this.

Here are four insights.

  1. Believe Yourself

If you have an intuitive feeling that now is a terrible time to cast a spell, believe yourself. Believe your inner knowing. Furthermore, this could be the Gods warning you.

One of my friends said, “If you’re poisoned, then what you do will be poisoned.”

If you feel “poisoned” by anger, turn to the Tarot or another trusted divinatory tool. In this way, seek to know more about the situation. Avoid doing magick until you know more about a situation.

  1. Be sure to “ground yourself.”

If you’re upset, ground yourself. Grounding is a practice that can help you cleanse yourself of negative energies. You can arrive at more clarity about a situation.

I love grounding. Why? Because I have depression symptoms. It helps me clear my mind of negative thoughts.

See my post on grounding here.

Feeling angry is natural. Still, the effective witch learns to avoid reacting. The idea is for you to develop a positive response. That response is grounding.

You can turn negative energy and thoughts into positive action. How? Begin with grounding. Then learn more about the situation. Positive action rises out of clarity.

  1. Perform Shielding practices.

If you’re hit with negative energy, you can use shielding.

The great thing about shielding is you can…

  • Protect yourself
  • If necessary, create a “mirror” to repel malevolent energy

You can learn more about shielding here.

  1. Turn it over to the Gods.

If you are unsure if now is a good time to do magick, turn it over to the Gods. Pray to them. Do a meditation session to connect with Them. The Gods can see the playing field better than we can. They see all the moving pieces. We may not see the full sequence or interwoven nature of details and events.

Asking for guidance is a powerful step when you’re dealing with a crisis. 

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

A Supportive Response to People Seeking Love and a New Chapter of Life

Recently, I have received multiple e-mail questions from women who wish to transition into a chapter of life with a loving partner. They speak of devoting all their time to working and taking care of family members like siblings and an older parent.

They sometimes say that they were stupid in failing to devote any time to healthy dating. They also complain of encountering commitment-phobic and abusive men. All of these details are truly serious, and I had multiple conversations with spiritual elders.

It breaks my heart to read emails in which the writer says that she wants to stop feeling empty and scared.

All of these issues and problems are deep and can be quite complicated. Here I will share some links to my relevant podcast episodes (Goddess Has Your Back Podcast) that might be supportive to people who find themselves in any similar situation. I am including these podcast episodes so you hear my friendly voice as support.

How Witches Learn the Right Lessons

“That’s it. I give up,” my friend, Kelsey, said. “The lesson is that I’m no good in a relationship.”

As I listened to her, I wondered if that was the real lesson about her latest relationship disaster.

Was there something else to learn?

Here are three insights.

  1. Your first guess about the lesson can be wrong.

At 18, I got married. Big mistake.

But if learned the wrong lesson—like giving up on relationships—I would have missed my current, blessed marriage.

Neuroscientists note that people’s brains do not fully develop until age 25. Until this age, the prefrontal cortex that helps curb impulsive behavior is not fully developed.

So, you guessed it. At 18, I made a rash decision.

Some covens do not allow younger members. In part, this relates to the ability to approach spirituality on another level.

The right lesson for me to learn is related to taking your time and getting to know someone.

  1. The right lesson empowers you.

Years ago, my sweetheart said, “I’m tired. I’m rushing like a racehorse.”

“Run in better races,” I replied.

The wrong lesson would be: “You’re tired so quit.”

Instead, my sweetheart learned the lesson to be selective. He learned to accept certain speeches over others. These decisions helped us get to Thailand and New Zealand—where he gave speeches.

  1. Invite the Gods to guide you

Often, the wrong lesson is the assumption that you don’t have what you want at this moment, and this means you’re doomed to an unfulfilling life.

However, the Gods know that so much in life is cyclical.

“The birth and rebirth of all nature,
The passing of winter and spring,
We share with the life universal,
Rejoice in the magical ring.”
– Doreen Valiente in The Witches Creed

It’s important to do meditation sessions so that you can listen to the Gods and intuition. Then you realize where you are in a cycle. If you’re creating something, are you at the beginning? Is this the Spring of the journey?

You can even look at this in terms of certain friendships. Some friendships are shorter. Are you in a time of winter? Has a particular relationship run its course?

In the following prayer, you can ask for the Goddess’s wisdom.

A Prayer

In moonlight’s bliss
And Goddess’s kiss,
May my path be right,
This moonlit night.
Let my decision
Have precision.
May I learn the right lesson
And know the true reason.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Find Internal Energy to Consistently Practice the Craft

“You said that if I want to prepare to do ritual on the astral plane, it helps for me to begin by practicing visualizing something as simple as a rubber ball,” my friend, Jessica, said.

“Yes,” I replied.

“How am I going to motivate myself to consistently practice visualization?” she asked.

“I have a couple of questions for you,” I began.

Here are three insights.

  1. Identify your tendencies.

We begin by looking into your tendencies. I talked with a friend who identified people’s reasons for taking action as falling into three categories:

  1. “For the team” person
  2. “I want to achieve” person
  3. “I want comfort above all else” person

Do you relate to one of these three categories?

Will you do more for others than for yourself? I find that I fit this category. I frequently jump to help friends and family members.

Do you really want to achieve something? Is witchcraft something that you want to master?

Do you want more relaxation and comfort?

The idea is to find out what your tendencies are. Then use what you learn to help you motivate yourself.

  1. Support your own path.

Learning and practicing the Craft is work. How do you get yourself to do work?

I found that if I make something a routine, I can get it done.

I also set my timer to remind me to do things—including the time for me to clean my cat’s litterbox.

My point is: You are unique. You will do better when you observe what patterns help you consistently do work … even the work of improvement in the Craft.

For example, I have my morning prayer on my laptop computer. I cannot use my laptop without seeing my morning prayer on it and reciting my prayer early in my day.

What will you do to set up a pattern, so you consistently practice elements of the Craft?

  1. Invite the Goddess to show you what can help your unique path.

Here is a prayer.

Prayer to the Goddess

Lovely Lady of the Moon,
Guide me to find my way.
Give me consistency and patience for my growth in the Craft.
Let Your light of intuition guide me to better self-knowledge.
Let me rise in my journey to know myself better with the Craft.
By Your Light may I be free,
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How Witches Set Boundaries with Goddess’s Help

“They called me in for work real early again!” my friend, Arianna, said.

I had nothing to say that could help her. She knew that it would be good to have a good boundary and say, “No” at times. But she didn’t do it.

I just listened with empathy in my eyes.

I have three insights for you.

  1. Be aware of the importance of boundaries

I see many people with inadequate skills related to boundaries. I certainly need something like a refresher course. I know we want to help everyone. But we also need to help ourselves. We need to take good care of ourselves so we can help others. So many times, I’ve been on a plane and heard the flight attendant say, “Put on your oxygen mask first before helping others.”

What is an “oxygen mask” in your daily life? What do you need?

We all have responsibilities. But there are several people who will pile on us—if we let them.

What is a healthy boundary? How about getting people to show some respect for your reasonable needs for time off and rest?

      2. Practice saying your boundaries

Do you know what are your boundaries? If not, think about it. You can even take a piece of paper and write down some appropriate boundaries.

I went through a self-defense course called Model Mugging. This is where you practice full force on an instructor. You shout out NO! and do self-defense moves, full force, on a padded attacker.

The same concept can be taken to boundaries as well. Once you have identified a boundary, you need to practice. Say it firmly out loud.

Perhaps, you say something like: “No. I cannot stay late here at work tonight. I have family details.”

Maybe, you might say, “No. You gave me no notice, and I have prior commitments.”

When it is appropriate, state your boundary with resolve.

Need more help? Ask the Goddess for support with your boundaries.

     3. Ask Goddess for support with your boundaries

Here is a prayer to help.

Boundaries Prayer

My Gracious Lady,
Give me Your strength to set up and strengthen my boundaries.
Encircle me with Your protection and guidance to enhance my boundaries.
Teach me better boundaries so that I may remain strong, and I can help others and myself.
So Mote It Be.

May these insights support your path.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
