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

How to Do An Extraordinary Prosperity Spell – The Secret of Whole Life Prosperity

 

“This is the time of increase?” my friend, Adam, asked.

“Yes. We’re getting close to Spring. This is a good time to cast a Prosperity Spell.”

Let’s look at what “prosperity” is. I don’t limit it to just a plethora of money. I am talking about your whole well-being. Prosperity is having an abundance of loving friends, family, good physical health, healthy finances and a good relationship to the God and Goddess.

Have you noticed that having some amount of all these things helps you feel more whole and happy?

I felt great when a sudden inspiration flowed to me from the Goddess to combine the four Elements in a coherent pattern that I call the Four Foundations of Whole Life Prosperity.

Here are the Four Foundations of Whole Life Prosperity in the terms of the four Elements/Directions:

Spiritual/East – Element: Air

Having a close relationship with the God and Goddess is key to a good and happy life.

Consider meditation as a helpful way to communicate with God and Goddess. In meditation, you can have your finger on the pulse with the Divine, which helps you create the balance your spirit craves. Your Spirit needs to be close to the God and Goddess. It hungers for a relationship with Them.

With this strong connection, the other Foundations of Whole Life Prosperity will come to you.

Health/South – Element: Fire

I’ve thought of the Element of Fire because the Spark of Life, as in good health, supports your prosperous life. Sleep enough, eat healthy meals and get appropriate exercise. After all, our bodies are temples to the Gods. Keep your body in good running order and cherish your body. Nurture your body by bathing regularly and do the rest to keep your body at its best.

We don’t need to fall for the media ideas of what a stereotypically attractive body looks like. You don’t need to be wafer thin. It’s reported that a number of models are actually unhealthy.

Take good care of your body—as the gift you have. Move in the direction of prosperous health.

Love/West – Element: Water

What does “prosperous in love” mean? I suggest we do what helps us have good relationships.

A friend asked, “What do you think is important to find in a romantic partner?”

My husband replied, “Find someone who is kind and flexible.”

I agree, and I’ve learned that it’s important for me to do rituals and meditation to keep myself strong enough to be kind and flexible. A dash of humor helps.

Taking good care of your relationships helps you support your overall prosperity.

Finances/Earth – Element Earth

A number of my friends complain and worry about their finances. I admit it: I get concerned, too. I’m doing fine, but I have this nagging concern about ending up a homeless person. My husband is ten years older than I am. How will things be after he passes on?

I’ve learned that meditation and rituals can bring about some peace of mind.

How about you? Would you benefit from doing rituals to enhance your peace of mind?

Doing a Prosperity Spell can bring in some income. Having the opportunity to do something nice for yourself (having a dinner, seeing a movie) can do wonders for your feelings and sense that we live in an abundant Universe.

Putting It All Together

Bringing together Spirit, health, love and appropriate finances enhances your experience of a whole and happy life.

Use this following is a spell to help you move forward.

The Whole Life Prosperity Spell

What you will need:

  • Altar and regular ritual tools
  • Image (as seen above)
  • 1 small rough pebble (North)
  • 1 unused easy light match (south)
  • 1 thimble of water (West)
  • 1 Incense cone and holder (Air)

Do this spell on a waxing moon, closest to the full moon. Focus on this spell to enhance prosperity in various facets of your life.

Cast Circle in the normal manner.

After cleansing and consecrating the items representing the four elements, place the graphic/picture (with this post) on the altar. Set the items (that represent the elements) on their representative cardinal points.

Meditate on your life being full of what you desire. Once you have a firm feeling about what you want, continue with the next steps.

(Light the match on the rock.)

Fire burns in my veins with health,

(Dip index finger into the thimble of water, touch the water to your lips, and say)

Water surrounds me with the love I desire,

(Tap the rock three times.)

Earth provides that I am financially secure, and I enjoy  financial abundance, 

(Light incense from the working candle.)

And Air sends this spell and my love to the God and Goddess.

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony

Close your Circle.

May this Prosperity Spell enhance your life and happiness.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

When You Really Need Money— a Wiccan Ritual

“What is going on? I have so many spiritual friends who are having trouble with money,” my friend, Sabrina, said.

Wiccans do have possibilities to use magick to ease their burdens.

Here is a ritual to increase your money flow. Do this ritual on the waxing moon, for a duration of seven days (before the moon is full). If you can start on a Sunday, even better.

Financial Abundance Ritual

What you will need:

  • Green 7-day knobbed candle
  • Candle Snuffer
  • Candle holder
  • Money Drawing Oil*
  • $100 bill (if necessary you can use $10)
  • Altar Pentacle
  • Money Drawing Incense**
  • Charcoal for burning incense
  • Altar
  • Ritual tools
  • Cakes
  • Wine/juice

*Money Drawing oil

  • 1 drop Cinnamon oil
  • 3 drops Ginger oil
  • 5 drops Flax Seed oil

Combine all three oils in a carrier oil such as jojoba oil. Let the combined oil sit in the moonlight for three days. Allow it to stand in the dark for three weeks. Do not let it sit in the sun.


**Money Drawing Incense

  • 3 parts Cinnamon
  • 2 parts Ginger
  • 3 parts Flax Seed
  • 2 parts Myrrh

Mix ingredients with mortar and pestle, and let the mixture sit for three days before doing the ritual. Do not let it sit in the sun.

When the time is right, begin your ritual.

Cast circle in the usual manner.

Cleanse and consecrate your candle and the $100 bill. Dress your candle by rubbing the Money Drawing Oil from the tip to the base. Next rub a small amount of the Money Drawing Oil on your $100 bill and place it on your altar pentacle while saying:

Money Chant

Money comes
Money flows
Money stays
Money comes to me
Only in positive ways
And grows and grows!

Place the candle in the candle holder. Place them on top of your $100 bill. Repeat the Money Drawing Oil chant three more times, while concentrating on the candle.

Envision seeing your wallet/purse stuffed with money. Envision being able to pay bills and getting the things you need and want.

When you feel you have this image firmly in your mind, light the candle. Keep concentrating and focusing on your goal until the first knob has been consumed. Snuff your candle with a candle snuffer. Caution: Do not blow out your candle. This will blow out your intention.

For six more days in a row, repeat lighting the candle and focusing on your intention—with each knob. Once you have finished all seven days and the candle burns itself out, take the $100 bill and place it in your purse or wallet. Carry the bill to attract more money. Once you have what you desire, give the bill to charity***.

May this help you on your financial abundance journey.

*** An Important Consideration: Sometimes more than one ritual is needed because a person has significant blocks. If the ritual doesn’t work the first time, you may have to directly address your personal blocks to financial abundance.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

Money, Prosperity and Wiccans Enjoying Life: A Money Spell

 

moneystack

In a gathering of friends, some conversation about money arose. You could see it. Some of the people gathered bristled.

I like to talk about prosperity which includes an abundance of love, friends, things we need and the ability to be generous.

For example, just last night, a homeless man stood outside a 7-Eleven convenience store. He asked, “Could you buy me something to drink?”

“Sure,” I said. I was buying a Big Gulp, and I bought him one, too.

“Thank you,” he said, quietly.

I was grateful that I had the cash in my pocket to buy something for both of us.

Sometimes, we simply need cash to buy something for another person or to pay our bills.

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


The above spell has worked for me. I had difficulty receiving appropriate checks and things cleared up. I was grateful!

May your journey be prosperous and happy.

Blessings,
Moonwater

Is the Law of Attraction Really Magick?

Beyond the Law of Attraction to Real Magick

Is the Law of Attraction Really Magick?

My friend Cindy saw the movie The Secret and learned about the Law of Attraction which states that “like attracts like.” So she tried really hard to think positive thoughts all the time. But life threw her curve balls like a problem at work or a friend not answering her phone calls.

Because she thought about the Law of Attraction she was afraid that her fearful thoughts were “attracting bad situations.”

I’ve thought about the Law of Attraction often. And I realized that talking about the Law of Attraction is really talking about using magick.

When people talk about the Law of Attraction, they emphasize that the energy you send out will attract similar situations. In Wicca, we talk about using energy. And doesn’t that “like attracts like” sound quite similar to the concept of the Three Times Law?

So if the law of attraction is magick, why are people having so many problems getting what they want?

The reasons may surprise you.

First, they may lack all of the right tools.

Second, they may be actually blocking their own path to success and fulfillment.

But the biggest problem remains that many people have unhealthy beliefs about success in their heads. For example, Henry’s father poisoned the boy’s thoughts that “All rich people are corrupt. Every fortune is based on a crime.”

No wonder Henry’s subconscious mind, in his adulthood, actually repels prosperity.

So how do we get rid of limiting beliefs to clear the path to our desires?

I talk about all this and more in my book Beyond the Law of Attraction to Real Magick. Below is an excerpt from the book.


Beyond the Law of Attraction

to Real Magick

self-perspective: Overcome The blockage of Not feeling worthy

Do you feel worthy of the best that life has to offer? Maybe on the conscious level you say, “Sure. Bring it on. The new house, new car, and a real, loving relationship.”

But have you ever sabotaged your chances of getting exactly what you wanted?

Self-sabotage can occur because of feeling not worthy on a subconscious level.

If it’s subconscious, how can we deal with this?

Good question.

Soon I will share with you a Self-Love meditation.

But first let’s talk about magick. The whole premise of this book is that there is a way to go about the Law of Attraction with more power.

To put it simply, the Law of Attraction is a form of magick, but people who read an introductory book on the Law of Attraction are often denied enough information to truly make the Law of Attraction work in their own lives.

So to really make a positive difference in your life, we need to talk about real magick. I spell magick with a “k” to distinguish it from stage magic you see on television.

Magick is a natural power, not a supernatural one. Who uses magick? In my spiritual path, Wicca, one is trained to use magick in appropriate ways.

When Wiccans do magick, they channel natural energies and create change with them.

Well, if Wicca isn’t really supernatural, then why practice Wicca at all?

To put it simply, you want something. That’s probably why you were interested in the Law of Attraction in the first place. Now in the context of learning real magick, you’ll be able to fully use the Law of Attraction. And that’s good news!

Everyone is different and has their own answer to that question. I like to think of religion as a bottle of wine. Let’s say you have three different people who all taste the same bottle of wine. The first person points out that the flavor has accents of oak. The second praises the hints of apple in it, and the third enjoys the floral notes. They are all right. The wine contains all the flavors they described. But each person detected something different. Religion is like that. Deity can’t be entirely known. So the truth of it is scattered into many faiths.

In Wicca, we honor  the God and the Goddess. If that’s new to you, you can substitute the label of Higher Power or God or Deity.

The Gods and Goddesses have helped me and they can help you, too. The first thing they taught me was self-love.

Before we go further, let’s make a distinction between self-love and self-conceit (or being stuck in one’s ego).

Self-love is about kindness and support. So it’s a good thing. It is NOT about your ego or puffing yourself up.

Let me show you how the Gods changed my perspective on myself for the better.

One of the best exercises I learned is meditation. Through reflective meditation, the Gods helped me understand how skewed my perception of myself really was. This was a key turning point for me.

One thing you always hear about are affirmations, but for many of us these just don’t work.

First, let’s cover what an affirmation is. It’s a personal, positive statement. It can be as simple as “I feel terrific” or “I make a lot of money.”

For many, the above statements don’t work. Why?

A number of people have told, “It just sounds like I’m lying to myself.”

Like myself, many people’s inner self-beliefs interfere with these positive statements. For an example, if I used the affirmation “I am thin,” my brain would object with “No, I’m not. Look in the mirror.” It’s not true. No matter how hard you try to pound that new idea into your brain, your brain pounds just as hard back.

So how did the Gods help me deal with this problem? They inspired me to create a Self-Love Meditation.

So instead of the uphill battle of an affirmation, we’ll use the Self-Love Meditation to work with the situation.

Is Money Spiritual?

Happy Imbolc

Happy Imbolc to everyone. Hope you enjoy the post.

Money

Is Money Spiritual?

Have you heard in some form that “money is not spiritual”?

Some of us have heard a misquote that goes “Money is the root of all evil.”

(Actually, the correct quote is: “The love of money is the root of all evil.”)

There’s a real problem: ignoring money or actually looking down on having money causes unhappiness. Some say that having denial about money issues causes many people to end up poor and unable to take care of their own basic needs.

In Wicca we know our Gods want us to be happy. With this as true, does it make sense that our lacking money is what they want? No.  Now I’m not saying you need to be making buckets of money or that it’s necessary to have a whole lot more than you need.

But for many in our community money is elusive. Why?

For a number of individuals, Wicca was not their first taste of spirituality. They may come from different faiths that look down upon having money. The horrible part is that debilitating beliefs about money often stick in a person’s subconscious mind. And these sick beliefs push us to be unhappy.

Let’s go back to the misquote that goes “Money is the root of all evil.”

Is it money? No, fear is the root of all evil.

Think of it. Fear pushes us toward greed. Fear of never having enough. I remember the famous line from Gone With The Wind: “I will never be hungry again!” In that film, Scarlett O’Hara does extreme things because of her huge fear of being hungry or losing her property.

Is it possible that having money can frighten us? Yes, that can be a problem. Some of us have been conditioned to think that rich people are money-obsessed and that they do bad things. So on a subconscious level, some people are afraid of losing themselves and actually avoid opportunities to become rich and successful. Again, I call these sick beliefs.

Some of us are really afraid of having money. It continues to come from subconscious beliefs drilled into our heads that money was not spiritual.

Instead, I suggest that money is spiritual. Money creates opportunities for us to be happy. It creates safety for us and our families. The Gods want us to feel this way.

If we’re doing well with our personal money situation, we walk around with an air of positive energy. We can be compassionate to others. Expressing compassion is an important part of one’s spiritual path.

We have many ways of creating prosperity. I think just doing money spells is not the full answer.

Ideally, we would use magick to get to an inner state where we can work out problems that prevent us from enjoying financial abundance. We can do meditations and inner work to change the limiting thought patterns and beliefs we have about money. (For more about this, see a free chapter from my book The Hidden Children of the Goddess. CLICK HERE.

Some Wiccans may default to doing prosperity spells to gain money. However, it may help more for you to do a healing spell so that any blocks dissolve to learning how to earn more money, save money and improve spending habits.

Let’s start with new and empowering thoughts about money. Look at holding empowering definitions of words related to money. For example, author Jason Miller talks about the difference between rich and wealth. I think he says it well:

A rich person has a high income, which is a stream that can feed being wealthy or being in debt, depending on how that money is used. There is no shortage of people with high incomes but no real wealth. . . . Wealth is not a flow of income; it is a state of positive finances.

What is a state of positive finances? Such a state includes enough money for bills, some money for entertainment, savings for tough situations in life, some money to be kind to others, and savings towards one’s retirement. Positive finances is not about having just enough to barely get by. It is really about having some amount of financial abundance (more than enough).

To live in lack (including difficulties about money) really isn’t the Gods’ and Goddesses’ plan for us. They invite us to grow, learn and adapt. They invite us to learn something about creating financial abundance.

Let’s begin today.
