Wiccans Dropping Excess Weight and Taking the Spiritual Path of Greater Health

seven day candle

Like many souls this new year, I heard my doctor say, “You must lose weight. The health problems are too severe.”

So, in my first week, I ate nothing but veggies and protein. (Okay. I had a little, itty-bitty piece of dark chocolate … each day. Oh, then there was the peanut butter …)  I was hoping to shed the pounds and be healthier. I exercised every day and ate what the doctor told me to.

However, when I went to the scale to my terror I had gained weight!

Ugh! What a horrible feeling!

So, what can I do?!

Here’s a Weight Loss Spell.

What you will need:

  • One seven knob, green candle
  • Banishing oil
  • Candleholder
  • Lighter

Warning: Be sure to do this spell during the waning moon.

Cast the Circle.

Cleanse and consecrate the oil and candle. Set the candle in its holder. Sit and meditate on your losing weight. See the candle as a representation of the excess weight. When you’re ready, light the candle and say three times:

Little knobbed candle of green,
With powers, great and unseen.
I light you in the vast darkness so,
Illuminate health for me to know.
Bad eating habits and lethargy, I rip out
Of my life within and without!
Let this my prayer be answered now! 

I pray that you will, I pray that you must,
For me to lose weight high water or bust!
As you my little green candle melts,
So too does my weight and waistline melt.
So mote it be!

Now sit and meditate on losing weight until the first knob is burned completely. Then put out the candle with a snuffer.

Do the Cakes and Wine Ceremony.

Close the Circle.

The Next Steps

On the subsequent day, simply burn the candle and meditate before it. You’ll complete your session when the second knob has melted away.

Continue this process for the next five days.

For those of us who are letting go of extra weight, may this Spell be helpful to you.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater

P.S. I have let go of 7 pounds so far. I am happy about this.

Thank you for helping me see I’m not some freak because of circumstances throughout my life that have caused the blocks, and that i need to stop hiding from or burying them and face them one step at a time. – Crystal Sparks

Should I create spells or follow a book?

The Hidden Children of the Goddess Book
The Hidden Children of the Goddess Book

One of my readers asked, “Should I create spells or follow a book?”

The real answer is “both.” Reading a book can give you the format for different forms of spells. In my books, including The Hidden Children of the Goddess, I show the specific actions and scripts to say. After you learn the format, you can customize the spell.

The Strongest Spells Are Ones You Create Personally

Reading books is a good start. But I suggest the strongest spells are ones you make yourself. Just because a spell is in a book doesn’t mean that it’s the right spell for the job at hand.

The Value of Customizing Your Spell

Here are the benefits you gain from customizing your spell:

  • Creating your own spells is a good way of learning the ropes.
  • You gain a better grasp on the fundamentals in Wicca as a spiritual path.
  • You become a better practitioner.
  • You tailor the spell to you and your unique situation.

Previously at my blog GoddessHasYourBack.com, I offered what I call “Moonwater’s Formula for Making a Spell”:

“I really could use a simple format for making a spell, Moonwater,” my friend Anita said.
“Okay. I can give you the basics with a 5-Step Formula for Making a Spell,” I replied.
It comes down to these steps or what I call the “5 What’s”:

  1. What do you want?
  2. What element?
  3. What will represent that element?
  4. What do you have at hand?
  5. What words?
  1. What do you want?

Seems simple enough, right? Still, many people hold the thought “I want more money.” That’s too vague. What do you want the money for? Some people have a job that pays well enough but they hate that job. So what do they do? They buy expensive stuff and vacations. Perhaps, what they really want is a job that they feel good about.

Now, ask yourself: What do I want? Then ask yourself, No….What do I really want? Keep refining it until you have it. Finding the root of the need is important.

  1. What element?

How do you pick the appropriate element? Think about your need. What element is connected to it?

  • Do you want to flow better at work? That relates to Water.
  • Do you want to think more clearly? That’s related to the element Air.
  • If you want more energy, you likely want to connect with the spark – with Fire.
  • Do you feel scattered? To connect with being grounded, focus on Earth.

Questions like these will help you pick what element is best suited for your problem or desire.

  1. What will represent that element?

What object would make a good representation of your element? If it’s Fire, perhaps, a lit candle. If it’s water, you could use a sea shell because it comes from the sea.

  1. What do you have at hand?

With a list of objects that can represent your element, take a look and see what you have on hand that would fit the bill. Perhaps your first thought was to use a shell as part of your spell. However, you do not have one in your home. You could simply grab a bowl and fill it with water.

  1. What words?

The words you choose are important.

Here are three details to help you.

  • Choose an opening

Here’s an example:

By the powers of the Sun and Moon

  • Give a deadline

Here’s an example:

So make this happen nine days or less

  • Put in the protection phrases

Here is an example:

An it harm none.

I also include “This or better.” There are times with the God and Goddess know better than we do what would be good for our overall journey of life.

Additionally, give a time period for the spell to stop. You can say something like may it come to pass within three moons. (Spells usually come to pass within one moon cycle.)

May the above details help you in forming your spell. It’s true that one may add other details to a spell. Still, the above provides you with a good start.

The various parts of your spell are like the pieces you put together when sewing a quilted blanket.”

Blessings and may your spells create positive benefits.

How to Stop Self-Sabotaging Your Spells

altar

“It’s not working,” Sandi said.

“What?” I asked.

“My spells. I know what I want. It’s just not manifesting. Why is that?”

“There can be many reasons,” I replied.

After an extended conversation, Sandi and I uncovered that her self-doubt and even low self-esteem were sabotaging her efforts.

The truth is: If you do not believe you can make a change, you won’t. Self-doubt is the one of the biggest problems we have as practitioners of the Craft.

Recently, I shared a spell to attract new and positive friends. It’s not just about doing the ritual according to the steps. If you don’t believe you deserve new and positive friends, you may find that the spell falters.

Much of how magick works is on the subconscious level. If you have been trying and trying to do a spell, and you’re not getting what you, it may be time to look into what you truly believe.

So how do you get down to the root of the problem—to what you believe on the subconscious level?

Meditation can help here. Meditating on the problem and asking the Gods for help in locating the issue can help you find the problem area(s).

Realize that your subconscious mind speaks in images and metaphors. It may take some time to unravel the mystery.

Some of us would like a shortcut. So we may buy a dreams-and-symbols book. This will not help on the level that I’m talking about. Why? Only you know your own unique symbols.

Here’s an example. Sandi finds that a red ball keeps jumping into her thoughts as she meditates. A dreams-and-symbols book may say one thing. But, for Sandi, a red ball means something specific. It takes her a couple of meditation sessions before the memory rises up.

During her childhood, Sandi’s favorite toy was a red ball. When she was five, Sandi’s friend Amanda took that ball away. Not just that. Amanda hit Sandi. That’s a painful memory. Not only that, it’s reported that much of what we think about the world is formed when we’re quite young.

During her meditation, Sandi realizes that the image of the red ball brings a rush of feelings: anger, sadness, and pain over a betrayal. “Amanda was my friend. How could she be so mean?!” Sandi thinks.

To Make Your Spells Work, You May Need to Work with Deep-Seated Feelings

To find your way to new and healthy friendships, you might need to deal with your deep-seated feelings and beliefs about people. If, on the subconscious level, you feel afraid of being betrayed again, your subconscious mind might be blocking your spellwork. It doesn’t want you to get hurt again. You need sit with your feelings, to heal, and to let go.

A number of us find working with a therapist is helpful.

Now, this may be a bit of a disappointment to some Wiccans who are looking for a fast, easy way to solve problems by just casting a spell. We’re talking about your whole life here. Our subconscious mind is part of the picture.

Many of us do not want to delve into the unpleasant side of our journey here on earth. Some people just want to focus on “everything that is light and shiny.”

I understand that. I can say from personal experience: You can travel further on your path of healing and personal growth when you are willing to look at a hidden side of yourself.

Wicca is a path that helps us connect with who we truly are.

I invite you to welcome the whole experience: joy, recovery, healing, necessary tears and the expansion and enhanced ability with spellwork that you’re looking forward to.

Blessed Be,
Moonwater
