How Witches Become Good at Receiving

How good are you at receiving? I’ve learned that when you really want your spells to work, you need to look carefully at your comfort at receiving good in your life.

Do you receive things like compliments well, or do you say something to dismiss them?

Your habitual ways around receiving can make the crucial difference related to a spell working or not.

I’ll now share three insights:

  1. If you are not good at receiving, your spells may not work

Working spells is hard enough, but if you don’t let in the magick, the spell will most likely flop.

By “let in the magick,” I’m talking about being open to receiving gifts from the Gods. For example, if you dismiss compliments, you’re doing something that may feel like snubbing the compliment giver’s efforts.

Be careful to avoid snubbing the gifts the Gods are trying to send to you. This can create not only a broken relationship with the Gods, but your spells may sputter out.

I have personally fallen into a trap of discounting a compliment, on a number of occasions.

Someone would give me a compliment like, “Good work.” I would say, “Oh, anyone could have done that.”

How would you feel if you were the person who gave the compliment?

I’ve learned to simply say, “Thank you.” I say nothing that discounts the gift of the compliment or the kind observation.

The Gods want a good relationship with you and that involves you graciously receiving gifts from Them.

  1. Pay close attention to your blocks related to receiving

Have you faced a problem with feeling “I’m not worthy”? I can relate to this. I learned that staying in a space of low self-esteem can create blocks. These blocks can create problems with your magick.

Think of such blocks as functioning like a barrier or a shield. Blocks can deflect your magick and make it flop. This terrible combination of a block and your magick can even create negative consequences.

Additionally, it’s difficult when a block may exist on the subconscious mind level. Some people grew up in families in which talking about money was a taboo. Or the parents repeatedly said, “We can’t afford that; put it back” to children exploring toys in a retail store. Such incidents can cause a person to feel insecure about money.

Meditation, rituals, and prayers to the Gods can help you get on the path of being more comfortable about money and receiving.

  1. Keep the cycle of giving and receiving flowing along.

Giving back to the Gods is important. How? Lighting a candle or giving offerings to the Gods is a great way to say “thank you” for the gifts you have received through your magick.

You could even dedicate a chant, poem, or an act of kindness that you gave someone—to the Gods.

At one point, I dedicated my work at an animal shelter to the Gods. And, the animals had a good time, too.

You might choose to give to a charity of your choice. Just use your imagination and your intuition.

May these insights support you on your life path.

Blessed Be,

Making the Pattern of Your Life

blanket

I’m chatting on Facebook with a distraught young woman “Janis.” She has enjoyed my writing on my blog and now I’m helping her. Janis’ self-esteem has been torn apart by her family members’ vicious remarks about her Wiccan path.

As I help Janis, I glance at my knitting project (a blanket) at my side. It becomes so clear to me that we create our lives by the choices we make – one choice at a time.

After the Facebook chat, the conversation stays with me. I realize that every moment of my life before that Facebook chat prepared me to be in the right place at the right time. I had the right experiences so I could provide compassionate guidance for this young woman.

Imagine that your life is a knitted blanket. Each stitch represents an event  or a choice you have made in life. Each time you have had an experience, you made a stitch in the blanket. The stitches including your thoughts, choices and feelings combine to make the unique fabric. So one stitch leads to another stitch and another stitch — until a blanket is made.

Then I had another thought: At the end of my life, I’ll have a large, knitted blanket of experiences, thoughts and feelings. When I pass from this life do I bring the whole blanket?

Yet another thought arose. A spiritual thought. There is something that is eternal: The yarn — the essence of me. This essence continues through each project.

When we die, the pattern that we’ve made is like our body. We leave that behind. Soon enough, we will begin again as one single strand of yarn that will continue to manifest into the many lives during reincarnation.

When we start a new pattern; we may become a shirt or a hat this time. It all depends on what choices we make and what pattern we choose.

I find this comforting — the eternal aspect of each of us. The eternal strand of yarn.

In Wicca, I look upon reincarnation as a gift. Because we get to come back with people we loved before. In each incarnation we get to learn new stuff and make new choices. We get to have new experiences that we missed in a previous life. We get to gain spiritual wisdom in each successive incarnation.

Today I was knitting and had a mishap. I had to take apart a small section of my project. That’s when I “tink” the project — yes, you’re seeing the word “knit” backwards. So in knitting as with other processes in life, it’s not about doing things perfectly.

It’s a process. Your job is to stay aware and keep knitting, keep learning and to keep growing.

Blessed Be,
