Most people have heard the term “Wiccan” or “Wicca”, and know this to be one form of Magickal practice. And yes, Wiccans are referred to as “witches” – which has created an unfair stigma in some ways. I’m sure many of you reading this will already be conjuring up images of witches standing over a cauldron during a dark Halloween night!
Looking deeper into the practice of casting spells as a witch, the imagination soars with curiosity, possibility, and wonder.
I’ve heard these questions from almost every beginner…
“What is a Magickal spell?”
“Does this really work?”
“How do I cast a spell?”
“Do I have to be Wiccan or join a coven?”
The truth is, we cast spells every day. Every time you HOPE for something. Every time you make a wish on your birthday. Every time you wish someone well…
You’ve cast a spell.
A Magickal Spell is nothing more than a fun, crafty, creative way to put your intention out into the Universe. To let it be known what you desire… and what you need right now in your life.
If you do this properly out of a place of goodness and raw emotion (as well as follow up with real action towards your goal) you’ll be amazed what can happen.
Today, I’m going to share with you 3 very simple spells for prosperity, protection, and developing your psychic abilities. But first, let’s start with the what…
What is Wicca?
Wicca and witchcraft are spiritual practices based on nature and the idea that everything is connected. In practice, the main ingredient in Wicca and witchcraft is intuition. Your curiosity has led you here – and that means you already have a healthy intuition that is talking to you right now!
Wicca is a modern Pagan religion developed in Britain in the 1950s and 60s. It’s inspired by ancient European religions, as well as the occult mystics. There are lots of interpretations of Wicca, but the most traditional worship the Great Goddess and the Great Horned God, who manifest the moon and the sun. Their many yearly holidays follow the cycles of nature.
But, is worshiping a Pagan deity or subscribing to this modern religion necessary for you to use magick to manifest your desires.
Wiccan ceremonies use witchcraft as a way of prayer, but you don’t have to be a Wiccan to become a witch (or warlock – a male witch.) Lots of other occult and Pagan traditions and world religions use the same techniques and tools. You can even use witchcraft and be agnostic or atheist! Think of it like meditation. Anyone of any religion can learn to meditate, and still practice their religion as usual.
The definition of a “witch” is “someone who sees.” In other words, a wise-woman. When you practice witchcraft and magick, you are becoming connected with the life force of the earth, and all the wisdom that is found there. Whether you become a Wiccan, a witch, warlock, or just a modern magick practitioner, you will be using the spiritual craft of MAGICK.
What is magick REALLY?
Magick is just energy and the craft of moving energy around. (The ‘K’ in magick is added to distinguish it from stage magic performed by a magician.) This is an anonymous quote from a Wiccan source that sums it up beautifully:
“Magick is the mystery that lies in the secret soul of the world. It is the essence of creation. What we imagine, we have the power to create!”
In film and T.V, magick is supernatural. But Wiccans and other magickal practitioners believe just the opposite. Magick is the most essential part of nature itself. It is the vital essence of the earth that we find within us. Magick and witchcraft connect you to your best, most organic nature. So yeah, it’s super…natural!
To practice magick is to tap into the unity of the universe. It is about being a part of the LOVING force that holds everything together. That’s how it works! We are so connected to the world around us, that by using our imagination, and the tools of ritual to aid our imaginations, we can create REAL PHYSICAL CHANGES in the world around us. Magick works, and by its very nature, it is a good and positive force.
How do you get started casting Magickal Spells?
Witchcraft combines the tools of ritual with the force of the imagination. Ritual doesn’t have to complex though. It can be as simple as making a wish and blowing out your birthday candles. Imagination too is easily within reach. It’s like a muscle and can be developed and trained to respond through repetition. That’s what the ritual is for!
You don’t need to be initiated in a coven or have a lot of special stuff to do witchcraft. Almost any spell can be done with ingredients from your spice cabinet, craft drawer, and backyard. Spells can be flexible and creative, so feel free to substitute ingredients or even write your own spells. It is good to have input and guidance from a friendly source, but the magick is truly already within you.
Do these three simple spells and you will be practicing magick, just like that.
Three simple spells in three simple steps: for prosperity, to sweep away negativity, and develop psychic powers!
Wiccan Spell #1: Prosperity Candle
Using manifestation is like turning on a magnet for good luck. Do the work on your end, and the universe will respond as never before!
- Get a green candle and a penknife.
- Carve an amount of money you want to manifest on the side of the candle, something within reach.
- Burn it each night. As you light it and blow it out, keep the image in your mind of how your life will change once the money arrives.
Wiccan Spell #2: Sweep Away Negativity
Visualize your way to a home or business that is bright, light, and ready for success.
- Stand in the center of a room holding a household broom.
- Imagine golden light coming off the bristles as you sweep the room in a spiral.
- End by sweeping out the door, saying, “Shadow be gone, so mote it be!”
Wiccan Spell #3: Develop Psychic Powers
Psychic powers are really just the ability to use your intuition and recognize patterns. This exercise will trigger your intuition and open the floodgates of synchronicity.
- Pick eleven days and notice the number eleven everywhere you go.
- Keep a little diary of what you’ve seen, and jot down any other “coincidences” that start to happen.
- If you see two elevens next to each other in an unexpected place, you’ll know your intuition is on the rise!
So what are you waiting for?
Magickal practice makes wishing FUN, empowering, and emotional… and you’ll feel all of it in the scope of 1 simple little spell. 😊 Enjoy!
