How Witches Use Spell Work to Feel Better

Ever get sick? Not just a cold. I mean, have you been really sick?

When I’m in such a tough time, I make space to get more rest (during which I ask for the Gods’ healing). Then there’s chicken soup—lots of it.

When I’m really physically ill, I ask for my coven’s help.

A Spell of Healing

 What you will need:

  • One Blue Candle
  • Healing oil (or extra virgin olive oil)
  • Candle Holder
  • Three Stones (your choice) – Moss Agate, Axinite, Beryllonite, Crocoite, Red Jade
  • Your Ritual Tools
  • Chamomile Tea
  • The Sick Person
  • Chicken Noodle Soup (or other appropriate soup)
  • Warm freshly laundered blanket to be blessed
  • Rattle

On your altar, place the Blue Candle. Add healing stones around the candle in the form of a triangle. Put the warmed-up soup on the altar next to the candle on the left. Place the blanket on the right with the rattle on top of it and the Chamomile Tea behind the Blue Candle.

In your Circle the altar will be in the north section. The sick person sits in the middle of the Circle.

Cast your Circle.

Bless the rattle, stones, tea, Blue Candle, soup and blanket by holding each in turn saying:

I do bless this (name of item) that it may heal by the Gods’ hands.

Dress your candle with the healing oil, rubbing from wick to base.

And say:

I pull healing energy to (Name of Person).

 Light the Blue Candle and say:

I now heal (Name of Person).

Shake the rattle above the sick person’s head while they take a sip of the soup. Next, with the soup, you walk widdershins (the opposite of clockwise) around the cast Circle’s edge.

At each quarter, say:

West:
With this soup, I banish all illness from the blood

South:
With this soup, I banish all illness from the spirit

 East:
With this soup, I banish all illness from the breath

North:
With this soup, I banish all illness from this body! So, Mote It Be!

Bring the soup to the sick person. Have them partake of the soup again. Shake the rattle over the sick person’s head, as the person eats the soup, and say:

I cleanse you of all illness.

 Go to the alar and pick up the cup of tea.

Have the sick person take a sip of the tea. With the tea, you walk widdershins (the opposite of clockwise) around the cast Circle’s edge.

At each quarter starting with the West, say:

West:
With this tea, I banish all illness from the blood

South:
With this tea, I banish all illness from the spirit

East:
With this tea, I banish all illness from the breath

North:
With this tea, I banish all illness from this body! So, Mote It Be!

Bring the tea to the sick person. Have them partake of the tea again. Shake the rattle, as the person drinks the tea, and say:

I cleanse you of all illness.

At the altar, hold your athame over the blanket and say:

I call all healing energies to infuse this blanket.

Let it heal the body as well as the soul.

Wrap the blanket around the sick person saying:

You are healed with the Gods’ love.

 Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony.

Close your Circle.

Give the person space to rest and recover.

May this rite bring healing to you or someone dear to you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Tame Your Inner Critic: A Wiccan Perspective

Ever find that your Inner Critic beats you up emotionally?

Some of us ask, “What’s an Inner Critic?” That’s the part of you that won’t give you a break. Instead of saying, “You made a mistake,” the Inner Critic says, “What the hell is the matter with you?”

The Inner Critic is a voice inside you that kicks you when you’re down.

Here is a Self-Affirmation Chant to help you exert your inner power.

Self-Affirmation Chant

Inner critic, listen up,
You don’t think I make the cut.
Listen now and listen good,
Just stop pushing “should.”
I silence you from ruining my day,
Now my Higher Spirit has the last say.
Confidence and good thoughts surround me,
As I so will, So Mote it Be.

May you guide your Inner Critic to quiet down.
Demote the Inner Critic to just a member of your committee of voices in your thoughts.
Invite the Gods to enhance the power of your Higher Spirit.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Goddess Loves You Enough so You Can Do Hard Things

Free yourself from limitations.

“No, I don’t think I’m strong enough to move on from this hell I’m in,” my friend, Amy, said.

“If you realize that Goddess loves you, and you do the things so you can feel Her support—you can do the hard things in life,” I replied.

Here I’ll share three points.

  1. You are not alone.

The God and Goddess are always with you. You can call on Them to help you through the tough times in your life.

“Keep pure your highest ideal; strive ever toward it; let naught stop you or turn you aside.” – Doreen Valiente, speaking in the voice of the Goddess – in The Charge of the Goddess

Sometimes, it feels like everything in the world is trying to stop you from your desired goal. At those moments, look beyond the mundane world. Call on the Gods for Their support. Ask the Goddess, in Her nurturing aspect, to help you and guide you on your path.

  1. Goddess is the Loving Form of Deity.

“Nor do I demand sacrifice, for behold I am the Mother of All Living, and my love is poured out upon the earth.” – Doreen Valiente, speaking in the voice of the Goddess – in The Charge of the Goddess

The Goddess has explained that she doesn’t demand that you sacrifice your desires or dreams for Her. She wants you to be happy. The Gods don’t want us to suffer.

  1. Sometimes, we get the answer of Light, having gone through a time of darkness.

“The dark and the light in succession,
The opposites each unto each,
Shown forth as a God and a Goddess,
Of this did our ancestors teach.” – Doreen Valiente – in
The Witches Creed

If we don’t have the hard times or dark times in our lives, we can’t fully appreciate the light parts. In one discussion, one of my friends emphasized that an important part of happiness can be feeling relief after a dark time.

When we see the good times stand out from the dark, we truly appreciate the good times when they arrive.

The dark times can be a powerful form of teacher. Dark times teach us certain lessons we need to learn. When the Light finally arrives, the Light illuminates our progress through those lessons.

We need both times of Light and dark to grow into our full potential and full destiny.

May these insights bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Wiccans Claim Their Real Freedom

When do we really have freedom?

I’ve learned that it is hard to make a healthy choice when you’re in the middle of chaos or stress.

So, what is the solution? Make the choice when things are quiet.

Wiccans, I’ve talked with, mention how they’d like to feel better. In this post, I’ll talk about how you can get to a place of inner quiet. More than that, I’ll show how you can charge a talisman, so you’ll have it available for a stressful moment.

When you make a choice during a quiet time, you can later, during stress, make the healthy choice automatically. In this way you avoid having to make the choice again and again. (Sometimes, we do not have the extra energy to make the healthy choice at that time.)

For example, my husband decided to eliminate peanut butter and apricot preserves from his daily diet. He made the choice once (when he wasn’t hungry.) It has helped him drop 15 lbs. permanently. I have used Goddess Style Weight Loss that I share in my book, and I have dropped 50 lbs. so far.

Charging Your Talisman

Often, Wiccans choose a talisman that can fit into their pocket.

Some suggestions are:

  • A worry stone
  • A crystal or mineral that is smooth to the touch
  • A piece of smooth and sanded wood

Pick something that helps you feel comforted.

Charging and Using Your Talisman Ritual

What you will need:

  • Your talisman
  • Brown chime candle
  • Candle holder
  • White candles
  • White bath robe (or a different color that you prefer)
  • White fresh bath towel
  • Chamomile tea
  • Cakes and wine
  • Gardenia incense
  • Gardenia oil
  • Relaxing music
  • Kosher salt
  • Altar
  • Ritual tools

What to do:

Conduct this ritual during a waning moon and when you will not be disturbed.

Set up your altar and place your talisman in the middle of the altar. Next draw your ritual bath.

Add your kosher salt, three tablespoons.

Light the white candles and burn some of the incense for the bath. Play some soothing music on a device safely away from the bathtub.

Drink the tea, then recline in the bath water. Feel the soothing water. Close your eyes and envision all the stress and negative energy dispersing and being absorbed by the bath water.

Deep breathe and relax.

Stay in the bath until all the stress and negative energies are gone from your body. Remain as long as you like.

Once you have finished your ritual bath, dry off with your fresh clean white towel. Put on your clean bath robe.

Next, go to your altar area and cast your circle. Then, sit in front of your altar in a comfortable position.

Cleanse and consecrate your oil and brown candle. Then, dress your candle with the oil—from base to wick. (This pushes the bad stuff away from you.)

Cleanse and consecrate your talisman and rub some of the oil on it as well.

Place the talisman in front of the brown candle.

Light the candle and say:

Fear, stress and sadness, I fling you away
During the madness here with me today.
Let this talisman disperse all my worries and fears away,
Replace with calm and peace for me to stay.
As I So Will
So Mote it Be.

Do the Cakes and Wine ceremony.

Close Your Circle.

Carry your talisman with you. When you start to feel overwhelmed, rub it and feel the negative feelings pulled away and into the talisman. Your talisman neutralizes your negative feelings.

Let this ritual bring you peace in your heart and soul.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Goddess Is the Source of Your Certainty

 

“Why is it getting worse?” my friend, Stephanie, said.

“I know there’s a lot happening. Anything in particular?” I replied.

“More violence in this country!” Stephanie said. And, this began a significant conversation.

What if Goddess Serves as Your Source of Certainty?

Is it possible to be certain of anything, anymore? Some people complain, “Unbelievable. I could not even imagine that people in leadership positions would be so … disgusting.”

I’ve learned that there is value in seeing ourselves as “spiritual beings having a human experience.”

As many of you know, I believe in the Summerlands, a place of love and peace in between the times we incarnate. We return and incarnate into a new body, and the lessons begin. We use our bodies as a user-interface for our spiritual being to learn lessons on this physical plane.

I realize that it can be tough to see this spiritual level when we’re in the midst of suffering and confusion. It’s as if we’re wearing “human-tinted glasses.” I suggest that we pause and consider looking at our lives from Goddess’s perspective. Goddess knows.

A Source of Comfort

Sometimes, I return to The Charge of the Goddess for inspiration and comfort.

“Let my worship be within the heart that rejoiceth, for behold: all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. And therefore, let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.” – Doreen Valiente (speaking in the voice of the Goddess—from The Charge of the Goddess)

A couple of meanings rise up for me with the above quote.

Notice the phrase “all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals,” and see that the Goddess gives us the answer. We can derive comfort in honoring Her with our compassion, reverence, humility and more. Acts of kindness and beauty honor the Goddess and make us feel good.

A Prayer

Dear Goddess
Release me from my stale, limited beliefs
And give me compassion and mirth in heaps.
Acts of love and Acts of pleasure.
I honor You in this way forever.

May the ideas expressed here comfort you and invite you to listen to your heart. May compassion for others flourish in your heart.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Goddess Says, “It’s Okay to Be Human”

Are you hurting?

Here is some good news—some comforting news: Goddess is with you through your entire journey.

“I have been with thee from the beginning; and I am that which is attained at the end of desire.” – Doreen Valiente (speaking in the voice of the Goddess—from The Charge of the Goddess)

The last part of the above quote has a couple of meanings to me. “I am that which is attained at the end of desire” implies that the Goddess’s love is what you receive at the end of your life. I believe we go to the Summerlands at the end of this life. You get to rest and enjoy time with your family and friends. The Gods will be there to give you love and support.

Another meaning is that the “end of desire” is actually a revelation that it is Goddess’s love that we really want. By this I mean, that what we want, including inner peace, joy, fun and comfort, are all manifestations of Goddess’s love. One of my friends recently bought a high-end, new car. What did he want? Some form of fulfillment. A car or a hug is just an expression of the blessings from Goddess. We notice that the car or a hug opens the door to good feelings.

Here is a prayer for times when you’re feeling overwhelmed.

A Prayer

Lord and Lady
Give me strength
To be compassionate to myself.
From that well may I draw
The love of the Gods to
Persevere on my path
And be kind to others.

 So Mote It Be.


May this prayer empower you to joy and fulfillment,

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Wiccans, Stand Up Against Sexual Assault

“This is so disturbing. All the rich and powerful men who gang together to protect themselves when we see evidence of their sexual abuse of women,” my friend, Jessica, said.

 

“Yes. And I realize that this is a crucial moment in history,” I replied. Jessica and I continued with a significant conversation. From this conversation and others like it, I have thought a lot about what is going on.

Use Anger as a Stepping Stone for Positive Change

When I was a child, I felt like I did not matter. My brother was given preferential treatment. He tormented me, and my parents’ neglect gave me a clear message that he was worth more to my parents than I was. My brother even went so far as to hold me down underwater (at a neighbor’s pool), terrifying me because I needed air! His friends, all boys his age, did nothing, to help an eight-year-old little girl. They just watched me being assaulted.

 

With the #metoo movement and with a woman testifying Thursday about the sexual assault she endured, we, women, are now taking our place as worthwhile people who will not stand by while such abuse continues in our society.

 

Perhaps, like me, you were taught to just swallow your anger.
Now is the moment for a new approach.
Use anger as a stepping stone for positive change.

 

We, Wiccans, know that there are times when we must stand our ground and even actively defend ourselves. During one of my meditations, I used my astral-sword to defend myself.
Methods of Defense and More …

 

Here are some suggested actions you can take.
  • Meditate and keep yourself strong – Keeping your spirit whole and healthy is the foundation for everything.
  • Call Upon the Goddess – In meditation and prayer, ask the Goddess to strengthen you.
  • Volunteer in the community with an organization that helps women in need.
  • Vote for representatives who focus on women as worthy and valuable. Register if you have not done so earlier.
  • Work magick to heal those who have been attacked. This can be as simple as a Prayer to Heal:

Lord and Lady,

grant those who have been wronged by sexual violence
now the power to heal.
May you find these actions to be supportive.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
