Most kids grow up mixing magic potions (inspired by myths, fairytales, and of course, George’s Marvelous Medicine!) But did you know that witches potions are a real thing… and something you can create yourself?
The original healing liquid is, of course, water. Great Spirit has made this elixir of life for all beings on Earth to thrive.
Yet there are many more kinds of potions and elixirs we can drink to heal and support us in our endeavors.
The “Magic Potion” of Water
Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto, was instrumental in popularizing the notion that our thoughts impact the physical realm. Through Magnetic Resonance Analysis Technology, his research involved examining the molecular structure of water when exposed to sounds, thoughts, intentions, and words. He proved that these factors do in fact have the power to both strengthen and disempower.
Emoto’s work posed the question: “If water is affected by words, intentions, and energies, what effect do they have on humans, who are made of mostly water? And if we can affect the water that makes up so much of our bodies, what else is possible?”
The Transformational Power of Potions and Elixirs
The fact is, using principles of Dr. Emoto’s research, and the magick of witchcraft, we can craft the water we drink into powerful elixirs and potions. And we can use those potions to transform our thoughts, our bodies and our selves overall.
Transforming any thoughts of powerlessness, self-hatred, or self-dismissal into the truth of how incredible we are, and how amazing our bodies are – brings power back into our hands and hearts.
From here we can focus our energy on what we want and who we are becoming.
The ego attempts to convince us that negativity is our reality. We are “too old, short, tall, young, skinny or fat” to make a difference. Negativity convinces us that we’re “too poor”, or that our wealth can’t be used in a certain way. Negativity convinces us that staying stuck in a challenge is more real than moving through it.
The truth is you are extraordinary!
You are powerful, and what you do matters. Who you are matters.
When we transform our thoughts to these truths we are empowered to helps ourselves, and our human and animal communities.
Some of the most powerful magickal tools we can use to do this, are potions. We can use potions and elixirs to work on the physical, spiritual and emotional aspects of our life challenges.
Journalist Helen Thompson reminds us that, “we can thank witches’ potions for helping cure our ailments, in the past and currently. It’s unlikely that most people prosecuted as witches during Shakespeare’s time and earlier in the Middle-Ages brewed potions for truly nefarious purposes. Instead, most potions probably contained intoxicants or folk remedies”.
Magic Potions Vs Witches Brews
Although the terms are likely interchangeable, Witches’ brews were probably intended to cure ailments from the start. Just as today you may go to the Doctor for a prescription, if you’re ill, in the days of old, you would visit the village wise woman for a brew. Many of the women and men tried as witches in Europe during the late Middle-Ages and the Renaissance practiced midwifery or medicine. Witches brews and potions were made as medicine.
CRYSTAL ELIXIRS (Crystal Infused Water)
You may have seen crystal water bottles on the market over recent years, but the notion that the energy of crystals can infuse water is not a new one. Crystal elixirs are powerful potions that can help you with a multitude of spells.
Before placing a crystal in your water, spend a few moments meditating on your magical intention. This programs the crystal so it knows what work to do for you.
4 SIMPLE MAGICAL WITCH’S POTIONS
Remember, that your intention and attention are instrumental when it comes to creating a magic potion. Creating a ritual atmosphere, with a candle, and some incense are optional, but this can really help the craft to be effective.
1. COFFEE: A potion of luxury, gratitude, and alertness.
There are many cafés and coffee shops about, with lovely environments of luxury and deliciousness. Your own kitchen may also be lovely! As well as its ingredients, the environment that a magic spell (even disguised as an everyday drink!) is crafted in, is embedded in it.
Wherever your cup of coffee is made take the time to drink in its magic. Before drinking it honor the workers that cultivated and made it. Say a thank you to the elements and the beans that created it.
While drinking your coffee allow the gratitude, luxury, and caffeine to nourish you.
2. Love Water
Use a glass jar or bottle, and place a rose quartz crystal in your water. You might want to add a rose hydrosol for extra love infusion.
Say, “My chalice is filled with water, rose hydrosol and rose quartz crystals. I drink in the elixir of love, I become the compassionate divine mother. I reach out and make a toast to you. Power Beautiful One, I honor you. May I continue to drink the magic of life.”
3. Abundance and Prosperity Potion
Use a glass jar or bottle, and place a piece of citrine or garnet stone in your water.
Say, “My chalice is filled with water and citrine crystals. I drink in the elixir of abundance and prosperity. I reach to you, the goddess of abundance, fortune, wealth, and make a toast to you. Power Beautiful One, I honor you. May I continue to drink the magic of life.”
4. Body harmony Potion, to open to spirituality and boost immunity
Use a glass jar or bottle, and place a clear quartz crystal in your water.
Say, “My chalice is filled with water and clear quartz crystals. I drink in the elixir of harmony and spirituality. I invite the energy of immunity to flow through me. I am the Power Beautiful One, I honor you. May I continue to drink the magic of life.”
