Don’t Psyche Yourself Out Related to Magick

Looking shaken, my friend, Tracey, walked up to me.

“My prosperity spell went upside down. I even lost money,” she said.

I put my hand on her shoulder. “I hear you,” I began. This was the start of a valuable conversation about magick and avoiding the mistake of psyching yourself out.

Here are three insights:

  1. Beware of getting stuck in “I wonder if this will work?”

You probably have had an experience when you were focused and in the moment. It can happen while playing cards or in a basketball game. People say, “I just kept winning over and over.”

That’s a great state of being to be in. That’s the opposite of being psyched out.

We can psyche ourselves out related to magick when we let the idea “I wonder if this will work?” to take over. Doubt kills magick. If you doubt yourself and your capabilities, this will affect the power of your ritual. When you doubt, you put up a wall between you and what you desire. You’re sabotaging your own efforts.

The solutions for this situation include—first, devote meditation sessions in which you imagine and experience your goal as having already come true. Second, work with an elder. Perhaps, start small, and you’ll develop some evidence that you are getting better with magick. An elder can lead you through exercises.

  1. Don’t tell others about your magick

Watch out that people can fill you with doubt because doing effective magick is completely outside their understanding. They may fear the process you’re in. Some people even mock what they don’t understand. Additionally, doubters can block your magick with their negative energy.

  1. Beware of the psyche out element of making you feel small and powerless

When I looked up details about psyche out, I came across a story about a boxer who uses belittling taunts to psyche out his opponent. It bothers me to say: part of me, the Inner Critic, psyched me out several times.

At least now, I’m paying attention. When I have psyche out thoughts or doubt-filled thoughts, I pause and look for a positive thought to hold front and center. For example, when I had a big disaster with a hard drive (I must have brushed a trouble-making key), I shifted away from “I’m an idiot!” to “It was an accident. I’ll check cnet.com for recovery software.”

Similarly, you can choose your own positive thought to hold front and center.

May these insights help you along your journey.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

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

How to Make a “Sigil Bundle” – a Magickal Powerhouse

Your completed Sigil Bundle

“I want to start working with Sigils,” Mary told me.

“Let’s start today,” I said.

“Wait! I don’t know where to put them. Where do I store them when I am done making them?” Mary asked.

Folding your Sigils makes them easy to carry –in your purse or wallet.

When you fold your Sigil into the form of a Sigil Bundle, you make it simple to reopen your Sigil when you want to.

[As a side note: You can learn more about standard Sigils here.]

Sigil Bundles are a great way to store and hide an active Sigil.

Start with a standard sheet of paper — 8.5 inches (21.59 cm) by 11 inches (27.94 cm). Cut the page in half. (See the resulting half-sheet below).

Write what you desire on the paper …

Fold the paper in half, while you keep the writing on the inside.

See your Sigil Bundle so far …

Fold the corners.

Fold the other corners.

Continue …

Now, fold the sides in like this.

On both sides …

Fold in the top and bottom corners.

See your Sigil Bundle so far …

Flip over your Sigil Bundle …

Fold your Sigil Bundle in thirds …

Continue …

Here is your Sigil Bundle so far …

Tuck in the corners …

Continue …

Here’s your Sigil Bundle thus far …

Turn up the little flap.

See your completed Sigil Bundle …

May this Sigil Bundle keep your desire close, and may this process help you manifest the life you really want.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Witches Break Down Barriers to Get What They Want

“My recent two spells failed,” my friend, Rachel, said.

“It may be happening because of internal barriers you might have,” I replied.

“Barriers like what?” she asked.

This began an important conversation about how you can release yourself from inner barriers to manifesting what you really want.

One barrier relates to the idea “I don’t deserve good things.” Many of us have heard extreme messages from our parents or guardians about how we’re not good enough. Our subconscious mind takes that in. Then it becomes an extra burden: Your spell is competing with resistance found in your subconscious mind.

How Do We Release Barriers in Our Subconscious Mind?

I have developed “The Self-Love Meditation” to help you move beyond self-esteem related blocks.

You can hear the meditation at

Itunes to Episode 1 “The Self-Love Meditation”

OR

Podbean

In this year, 2019, I’m scheduled to guide fellow Wiccans during a presentation in New Zealand (in a few months).

Here I want to emphasize one important point:

  • Meditation can help us with inner blocks that hide deep inside us, keeping us from our goals.

The good news is that we can use meditation to explore our inner being. Then, we can shine a light into the depths of our souls. Often, it truly helps to have an elder/mentor guide you. Having proper guidance during your journey will help you deal with those blocks more effectively.

Consider developing a consistent meditation practice. Why? Proper meditation helps witches find their truth. It’s like the can opener to the mind. When we have access to our subconscious mind, we can make great things happen for ourselves.

The subconscious mind is where a lot of our programming took place. For example, as a child, Susan was severely chastised when she spilled milk. As an adult, to this day, she cannot stand milk. The subconscious programming can really shackle us.

That’s the reason it is vital to use meditation to connect with deep and positive aspects of your spiritual essence. That’s when you become free.

In summary, meditation is a powerful tool that we can use to access our subconscious mind and reshape it to assist us in successfully performing our spells.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How a Witch Manifests a Great 2019

Bird flying
Soar to new heights this year 2019.

“Could I use witchcraft to fulfill my New Year’s Resolutions?” a friend, Sara, asked.

“Witches do have an advantage in fulfilling their resolutions,” I replied. This is good news because there are reports that 80% of people fail in their resolutions by February.

Did you make a New Year’s Resolution?

Witches have a better chance at accomplishing their resolutions because we have magick and the God and Goddess on our side.

Here is a simple spell to help you realize the accomplishment of your New Year’s Resolution.

What you will need:

  • Parchment or virgin paper
  • Tinted ink that matches your intention (an example is red to get things moving)
  • Quill (or an appropriate tinted marker)
  • Caldron or fireproof container and surface

What to do:

Cast circle as usual.

Bless and consecrate your items (paper, marker [or ink and quill])

Write your resolution on the paper. Hold the paper in your dominant hand and think of what you want to accomplish with the resolution. Pause and consider the experience and the benefits of manifesting your resolution. Imagine and feel the positive feelings.

Once you have your mind firmly on the outcome of your desire, ignite the paper on the working candle and drop the paper into the cauldron to burn completely and say:

Lord and Lady,
Inspire and make manifest
All the best
That I desire
Fuel the fire
So I experience what I hope for,
Blessings evermore

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony.

Close the Circle.

May this spell help you achieve your goals and bless your life.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

How a Witch Sends Off the Past Year and Sets the New Year as the Best Year Ever

Was 2018 a tough time for you? Want to release 2018 in a healthy and powerful way?
I know several people who had a rough year. Car accidents, health problems, relationship troubles and more.

Now that the calendar New Year approaches, we, Wiccans, have a chance to manifest the New Year as positive.

Here is a Ritual to help you manifest what you desire in the New Year:

What you will need:

  • 2 pieces of virgin paper
  • Black marker
  • Cauldron or fireproof container.
  • Drawing oil (or extra virgin olive oil)
  • Gold tapered candle. (You could use a yellow candle in its place.)
  • Candleholder
  • Pliers
  • Straight Pins
  • Large metal tray with sides
  • Altar
  • Tools
  • Cake
  • Wine or juice

What to do:

Read the instructions here thoroughly before you start.

On a waxing moon, Cast Circle in the usual manner.

Cleanse and consecrate all your items (the paper, marker, candle, and pins).

Dress your gold tapered candle by stroking the oil from tip to base. Place this candle in its holder, and then place both into the middle of the large metal tray.

Sit and meditate on what you want to bring into your life in the New Year. Think of each of those desires and wishes.

Pick a pin and assign a desire or wish to it. Using the pliers, hold that pin by the head, and heat it on the Working Candle.

Poke the heated pin into the gold tapered candle.

Repeat until you have all your desires and wishes for the New Year (as the pins) inserted in the candle.

Write “2018” on one of the pieces of paper.

On the other piece of paper, inscribe your name or signature. Then place the “your name-paper” under the Candle.

Light the candle and say:

Golden candle your flame’s now alight
Give me what I desire tonight.

Ignite the piece of paper with the old year written on it. Place the lit paper in the cauldron to burn away completely, and say:

Bad luck of this year I command, fly away.
Good luck of the coming year is here to stay.
With each pin that sings, a wish comes true.
Hopes of the future now bloom anew.
As I so will, So Mote it Be.

 You notice that as the gold tapered candle burns down, the pins fall into the tray. With the pins that fall, your desires will manifest in the coming year.

May this Ritual bless your life.

A Great New Year to you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

What Witches Can Do to Remove Blocks to Great Health

Are you facing significant health problems?

I’ve learned a lot about the process of dealing with significant health situations. I’ve learned to drop 50 lbs.* so I have avoided going down the diabetes path on which my mother struggles.

I am doing well in working with asthma and clinical depression symptoms.

Here are some things I’ve discovered along the way …

  1. Recognize what you get from the physical illness

“What do you mean, what I get from the physical illness?” my friend, Penny, asked. “I am forced to be stuck in my bed. I’m in pain.”

I nodded. I remained quiet. She would see it, or she wouldn’t.

“Oh … If I’m sick, I don’t have to go back to my parents’ house for Christmas,” she said. Considering the abuse she endured, her body seemed to have given her the only “correct excuse” for not going back to her parents’ home like “a good girl.”

Every situation is unique. This depends on the individual and their situation. For example, I take appropriate medications for my medical issues. Look to get support from medical professionals and mental health professionals as needed.

How does this relate to us, Wiccans? If you’re not listening to your body, you might have trouble listening to the Goddess. What does this mean? Look at the whole situation. Do you need to devote significant effort or attention to your health? Is it time for you to stop toxic situations in your life? Sometimes, it’s as if your body says, “Wake up. This way of living is not good for you.”

I suggest that you take a whole-life view of health and wellness.

  1. Willpower is a lie.

This comment sounds extreme. How many times have you heard someone say, “I just have to have the willpower to stop ____?”

If you think willpower is simply a matter of gritting your teeth, clasping your hands together and saying, “No! I won’t do it!”—you might have a bumpy ride.

My own husband hides cookies out of his sight (in a cupboard). Why? Because it’s easy for a person to fall into a habit of “see cookie—eat cookie.”

He’s not trying to rely on “willpower.” Instead, he’s using a strategy.

I know from personal experience that simply setting up “rules” for a diet can result in failure. You make up rules, sometimes impossible rules, to live by.

And when we don’t live up to those rules, we get mad at ourselves. This approach to willpower does not work.

What does this mean for us, Wiccans? Let’s move beyond trying to use willpower to make sure that we do a ritual or be active with the Craft. Instead, aim for making ritual an organic part of your daily life. Perhaps, you’ll do a ritual in the first 15 minutes after dinner (This is similar to how my husband and I have a routine of going for a walk after dinner.)

  1. Do you want it bad enough? – Why?

I note two types of want – 1) Want to manifest something and 2) Want to throw out something.

How deep is your want? This relates to how we Wiccans manifest things via magick. We need a powerful desire to manifest what we want.

If you do not have the deep, powerful emotional connection, your spell is likely to fail. That’s harsh to know. Still, this knowledge can empower you.

When you do a ritual, be sure to tap into your Deep Want.
Here are examples:

  • I want to be healthy so I can enjoy years with a new romantic partner
  • I want to be healthy so I can avoid diabetes that runs in my family
  • I want to be able to move, so I do NOT run out of breath going up a flight of stairs*

In summary, take a whole-life view of your health and wellness.
We, Wiccans, are fortunate in that we can integrate our spirituality with our being healthy on the earthly plane.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
