so-mote-it-be

Always remember:

you are a witch. You are not controlled by the universe, but rather, you are in control of the universe. You are a child of the universe and as a witch you are as one with the universe. Your magick, your intent and your belief in that intent, is more powerful than anything in the cosmos. Goddesses and Gods don’t listen to you, aid you, and enter your circle to witness your rites because They’re bored; They come to you when you call Them because They know you hold an unmatched, unbridled power and are humbled and honored when you seek Them to help strengthen and empower your already Universe-altering magick. You are a healer among the wounded. You are a seeker among the lost. You are awake among the sleeping. You are a force to be reckoned with.

You are a witch.

TONIGHT: MASS SPELL AGAINST DONALD TRUMP! Here’s the spell!

(Light white candle)
Hear me, oh spirits
Of Water, Earth, Fire, and Air
Heavenly hosts
Demons of the infernal realms
And spirits of the ancestors
(Light inscribed orange candle stub)
I call upon you
To bind
Donald J. Trump
So that he may fail utterly
That he may do no harm
To any human soul
Nor any tree
Animal
Rock
Stream
or Sea
Bind him so that he shall not break our polity
Usurp our liberty
Or fill our minds with hate, confusion, fear, or despair
And bind, too,
All those who enable his wickedness
And those whose mouths speak his poisonous lies
I beseech thee, spirits, bind all of them
As with chains of iron
Bind their malicious tongues
Strike down their towers of vanity
(Invert Tower tarot card)
I beseech thee in my name
(Say your full name)
In the name of all who walk
Crawl, swim, or fly
Of all the trees, the forests,
Streams, deserts,
Rivers and seas
In the name of Justice
And Liberty
And Love
And Equality
And Peace
Bind them in chains
Bind their tongues
Bind their works
Bind their wickedness


(Light the small photo of Trump from the flame of the orange candle stub and hold carefully above the ashtray)
(Speak the following loudly and with increasing passion as the photo burns to ashes)
So mote it be!
So mote it be!
So mote it be!
(Blow out orange candle, visualizing Trump blowing apart into dust or ash*)
(Pinch, blow, or snuff out the white candle, ending the ritual)

✨Have fun witches, let him have it ✨
Remember that if you don’t have certain components for this spell, you can always change it to fit your own craft!

You can’t take my rhythm.

After two mind-numbing days of “professional development” and zero time in our classrooms, tomorrow is our last day before the students come and we supposedly have the whole day in our rooms to pl*n. I’m looking forward to that time to close my door and focus in on what’s coming in the next few weeks.

Pen to paper.

I was exhausted tonight leaving our PD site, headed straight toward my home school for the evening’s back to school bash, gearing up for endless handshakes and meet-n-greets with nervous parents and even more nervous soon-to-be freshmen. I put the car in drive and Patty’s “Forgiveness” played.

Open your eyes, boy, we made it through the night.

There are 32-32-30-29 students respectively in each of my honors sections and I don’t know how I’m going to make that work. Timely feedback? Oh my god, I could cry. But my rosters this year are filled with last names I recognize, of siblings I loved who eagerly led their kid sisters and brothers to my door today.

“I haven’t heard one bad thing about you,” said one of the moms.

This is my home. I’ll make it work.

Spell: You Mean Nothing to Me

Originally posted by imbetteroffwhenihithebottom

You Mean Nothing to Me

Use: This spell is used to rid yourself of unwanted feelings towards a person. These could be any feelings; anger, hurt, lust, or sadness etc. This is especially useful if you still have to see/maintain a front with this person. It is not a curse or a binding spell, it only effects your feelings.

Timing: I’m a firm believer that you should spell work whenever it’s best for you, but a Waning Moon at Sunset would boost this. 

Supplies:

  • A black candle for banishing the unwanted feelings
  • A white candle for protection against further feelings
  • A black marker/sharpie
  • A picture of the person or a piece of paper to write their name on
  • Cauldron or a fire safe dish

Steps:

  1. Set up, delicate space/cast a circle, and light the candles.
  2. Write the person’s name on the paper (full name or whatever you call them. You can skip this if you’re using a picture.)
  3. Cover their name or face with a sigil or words like ‘I feel nothing towards you,’ ‘you mean nothing to me,’ ‘I don’t hate/love/care for you’ etc or whatever feels right to you.
  4. Now take the marker and start to cross out their name or picture. Scribble, ruin the marker if you gotta, put all those feelings into it. As you do this, say; “I feel nothing for you, you mean nothing to me, I don’t (add your own feelings and make it your own)..” Imagine yourself blacking out all those feelings as you cover their picture or name completely. 
  5. Roll up the picture or paper. Light one end with the black candle and say, “I rid myself of feelings from the past and reduce them to ash.” Light the other end with the white candle and say, “Never again will these feelings return, You’ll mean nothing to me once this paper has burned. So mote it be!” ((If you can’t burn you can rip it up with your hands and dispose of it in the trash instead. Feel free to change up the words to whatever feels best to you.))
  6. Place the burning paper in a safe pace or ball up the ripped pieces. Do some reflecting, meditation, and let all those feelings go once and for all.
  7. Once you’re done and the fire is safely out, blow/pinch out the candles, close the circle, and give thanks to any spirits or deities you might have included. Throw away whatever is left of the picture or paper because that person is no different than trash to you now.

To reinforce: If you have to see this person, or if memories start to come back to you, just remember this spell and use it like a little shield you can mentally/emotionally place between you and the person that has brought you these unwanted feelings. 

Best of luck to the Anon that requested this!

Spell to Prompt Someone to Dream of You

Here is a simple spell using herbs, candles and crystals to invoke dreams involving you (in this case, of a romantic nature) in the mind of someone you know. You will need all or any combination of the following:

Amethyst (dreamwork, divination, psychic energy, astral projection)

Lavender (sleep, dreams, wishes, visions, love)

Bay leaf (psychic visions and dreams)

Cinnamon (spiritual vibrations, love)

Pink, red, white candles

Paper and pen

Fabric and cord (preferably in pink, purple or white)

1. Cast your circle. Light your candles on your altar or workspace. Lay down a square of fabric on your work surface; this is where you will assemble your herbs.

2. In the center of the fabric, place your bay leaf. On a small piece of paper, write the name of the person you wish to dream of you. Fold it and place it atop the bay leaf. Place your amethyst on top of that.

3. Around the bay leaf, sprinkle lavender and cinnamon in a circle. As you do so, visualize the nature of the dream you wish this person to have (romantic, sexual, platonic, etc).

4. After you feel you’ve charged the herbal circle with your intent, gather the corners of the cloth together so that the ingredients form a sachet. Wrap a cord around the corners to tie it closed and knot it three times. With each knot, chant:

“For (name) I summon dreams of me

These magic herbs will let him see

My beauty as he softly sleeps

This is my will, so mote it be!”

5. Place the sachet under your pillow and sleep with it for three nights.

✨💼Spell for a Job💼✨

**Disclaimer: This spell will not work if you do not apply to jobs or do not show up to interviews. The Universe does not bend to you and you should put in the effort. This can also be used for current business endeavors, feel free to tailor it to what you need.

Ingredients:

  • Chamomile
  • Basil
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Green Onion
  • Olive Oil (Optional)

Directions:

First Method: Burn ingredients together in a fire-safe container like a cauldron or cast-iron cooking skillet/pot. Light a green or gold candle to go with it and repeat incantation.

Second Method: Consecrate the ingredients with incense or herb smoke (feel free to pass job applications through the smoke as well.) Picture your intentions and then combine the ingredients in a vial with olive oil. Repeat incantation if you’d like.

Incantation: “A job for me, is a job to be. I’ve worked hard; let this job put money on my card. As I say, so mote it be.”

Wear oil to job interviews or other business endeavors if you’d like! Let the candles burn out if you use them, and feel free to do other workings as well. This spell would work best during the waxing and/or full moon.

So *What* It Be? The Power of Words...

In its most simple form, the phrase “So Mote It Be” contains the words a witch uses to seal a spell, and this is the definition most commonly given when asked. However the history of this phrase is far more complex and interesting. Used today in modern witchcraft practices, it casts the practitioner’s intention to the universe so that their will may be carried out via their magical workings. It is spoken right at the end of the spell or ritual, as a way of saying that magic has taken place and the intent has been cast.

However, in some of the earliest traditions, “mote” was integrated as a part of a sacred oath. This came about from the formation of a primitive type of court held in the forest, often beneath an Oak tree. The court itself was called the Mote and was pre-Hellenic in origin and seen in both pastoral England and Scotland. To take an oath before the Mote was to put your honour and your word on the line. Thus the original meaning behind saying “So Mote It Be” was the way of stating that the things you had said in front your peers of the Mote were true and honourable.

Taking this through into a magical circle, we can see how these ancient origins match up. By saying “So Mote It Be” at the end of a magical working, we are making these same affirmations. We are saying that we stand by the words we have spoken and that we have been true to our own personal code of honour. Thus the spell carried out becomes the practitioner’s oath to herself and to her Gods.

This is reinforced through the development of modern English, as by looking at the etymology of the word “Mote”, through the 14th century it was used as the common word for what is now said as “Must”. Thus we see again it shows the practitioner holding fast to their word. So Must It Be. The phrase has a ring of finality and authority. It ushers the practitioner’s intention into reality and manifestation in the physical realm.

This phrase lost its common usage and became hidden within the practices of Freemasonry for many years where it was used as a replacement for the more common ending of prayer, “Amen”. The Freemasons interpreted it as referring to will of the Christian God being brought into the physical plane. It was a way for them to remind themselves that they needed to reconcile themselves to will of their God.

The phrase was finally adopted by Gerald Gardner as words of power when he established a revival of witchcraft in the form of Wicca. He shed the freemason association with submission to a higher being, and brought it back to the original roots of being a phrase of personal authority.

When it is put in context with the full phrase; “As I Will It, So Mote It Be”, this change from the submissive freemason usage becomes even clearer. It becomes a linking phrase between the intentions of the practitioner and reality rather than the will of a deity. It is what brings the practitioner’s spell to life and creates a flow of magic in accord with the practitioner’s own will and their workings.

With this point made, it shows the importance of focus and intention in personal magical workings. Meditation, visualisation, clarity, focus and honour all play a part in creating magic. If a person’s will is not completely aligned with their workings, then no matter how fancy the spell may be, or carefully worded it is; whatever it is that they are working on will not have the same magical emphasis as if their whole focus had been behind it.

LISTEN. You are a good witch. You are a strong witch. You are a powerful and capable witch. You write amazing spells. That herb satchel you made that you're questioning? I can feel it from here. Good fucking job, you badass. Your readings are spot-thefuck-on too. Your original rituals make mountains fucking tremble. Your sigils are beautiful as FUCK. The Gods and Goddesses are so FUCKING proud of you. That butter knife you use as your athame because you can't afford a 'real' one can still fuck up the ethereal realm and don't yOU FUCKING FORGET IT. Your craft is AMAZING. Your path is fucking VALID AND JUST AS STUNNING AS YOU ARE. YOU. ARE. WITCHY. ROYALTY. OKAY?! NOW GET OUT THERE CONJURE SOME SHIT.

What you will need: A polished amethyst stone

What to do: At bedtime when you are not too tired. Sit on your bed, hold the amethyst to your 3rd eye and say:

“ I call upon the power of perfect memory to enable me to see a past life I’ve lived; It shall be revealed to me in my dreams, I should see only what I should see. So mote it be.”

Place the stone under your pillow and go to sleep. When you wake up record any images you recall. Repeat this spell over many nights.

‘have not, hear not, see not’ - a perception spell

perfect for anyone with someone that has left their life and moved on. sometimes it’s not even that you want them back, you just want to stop being irritated by observing them and their new partners, friends, etc. (insp. stardust)

light three candles of any color (i used black cause i associate it with cleansing and purifying) 

say: look upon them though i may

        my feelings intact will stay 

visualize the people in question then try to fade the image out of your mind

say: even if they stand before me

        i shall not see their love

blow out the first candle 

       feel it 

blow out the second candle

       or hear it

blow out the third candle 

as i say these words so mote them be

i am free

my heart is my own 

(i hope this works for anyone who tries :) magic always has room for personalization add and take away whatever you see fit. )

Being a witch is so cool...

…because where most people see a stream, we see reminders to keep pushing forward despite the obstacles. Where most people see a tree, we see reminders to remain grounded, to be steadfast in our convictions, and to seek constant growth. Where most people see a flower, we see reminders that with the proper self care and little help from friends, our dreams and goals can bloom and flourish. Where most people see a moon, we see a reminder of our power and our beauty, a reminder that we have purpose, a reminder to keep our sights ever forward on that which we aim to manifest and to take the discerning action only we witches can to bring them to fruition. Where most people see a sun, we’re reminded that we have the right to be bold, brilliant, and unstoppable, that we have the right to be here, and to shine when we feel the call to shine. Being a witch is so cool because where most people find nature, we find our greatest teachers.

✨🌛Lunar cycle rituals🌜✨

Originally posted by electricstateco

Full Moon: 

Stand outside under the moon or look it out a window– Close your eyes and feel bathed in its light. Feel the power of the moon pulling at your soul. You can chant if you want. Gather up that light and power and pull it into your core to help recharge you for the coming month.

Dance in the moonlight– Take five minutes and give yourself up to joy. Celebrate the Goddess and the deity inside of you. Dance without thinking about what people would think, just be in the moment.

Waning Moon:

Decreasing visualization–Light a small candle (a birthday candle can work). Write the thing you want to decrease on a paper and put it under the candle. As the candle grows smaller, visualize your issue getting smaller too.

Drink it down– Pour some water into a clear glass, hold it in your hands and say “ This is ___ Wich I wish to decrease in my life” Drink the water sip by sip, repeating the progress until you finish the water and then say “So mote it be”.

Ribbon Ritual– Write the thing you wish to reduce or get rid of in a piece of ribbon, then snip off a small piece every night, timing it so that the last piece is gone by the next full moon.

Waxing Moon: 

Stone Ritual– Gather a small bunch of stones, (preferably flat ones as they pile together easily). Each night of the waxing moon, add a stone to your pile and think of what you want to increase in your life. 

Salt Ritual– Put some salt (preferably consecrated) into a container with a spout. Pour the salt into a small bowl, watching each tiny piece adding to the whole. Visualize whatever you want to increase growing slowly but surely, bit by bit through your efforts.

Growth Spell– Plant a fast-growing seed at the beginning of the waxing time. These can be cat grass, radishes,  carrots, peas, beans, zinnias, marigolds, cosmos, sunflowers etc. Place a piece of paper under or in the dirt you are using with the specifics of what you want to grow. Every day put your energy into the seed, sending it energy for growth into your wish as well.
