A Spell for Luck

A Spell for Luck

With Mabon fast approaching, many of us are considering how we will celebrate. As for my house, we’re having a pot roast made with homegrown potatoes, carrots, and onion.  For those of you who know me, no, I did not grow these at “my” home. My thumb is, unfortunately, somewhat brown, but my roommate keeps us in herbs and tomatoes. However, no matter how good he is, we just don’t have that big a garden.  This is a feast to celebrate the harvest though, so it’s only fitting to use fresh vegetables. One element of my preparation for Mabon is to decide what type of ritual and spell we want to do for the Equinox and get ready for that by casting a luck spell beforehand to add energy to our ritual. As with most spells, the caster can customize the spell to individual preference. Many people simply choose to wear a talisman or charm to add to their good luck. Others want to cast a circle, call the quarters, and use formal customs. Both types work equally well. The focus, intent, and beliefs o...

According to Freud, the Superego is that portion of our psyche that causes people to view themselves as not good enough, weak, lazy, pathetic, or, weak, and compels them to do things that often get in the way of making progress.Since I’m no psychologist, I’m not going to examine the reasons people feel this way.  Suffice it to say, the reasons are as varied as the people who feel this way. What matters for our purposes is that we always continue working to overcome the negative thoughts. They’re slippery and will sneak up on you when you’re least expecting them. Personal affirmations can help you remember to stay positive.Next, we need to make sure we are willing to accept the abundance that the universe sends us and be grateful for it. Things may not happen exactly as you planned, but you need to be willing to welcome all the abundance into your life. For many, this is a complete change in their interaction with the universe because you have to open yourself to the energies of the uni...

Setting Intentions: Journaling

Setting Intentions: Journaling

In this second installment of our Setting Intentions series, we’re going to talk about some specific ways to define what you want to manifest. Then in the third, we’ll look at more ways to eliminate the negativity that keeps you from manifesting your desires.One of the best way to figure out goals and intentions is to write them down. You almost certainly have a very good idea of what you would like to manifest in your life, and one of the best ways to follow up on your goals and intentions is to write daily about the progress you’re making. Use your journal to plan your goal, reflect on the challenges, and record your development and accomplishments. I’ve included a couple of sample pages below that I use, but each journal is a personal creation. When we sit down with a journal, we can reflect on what it is we really want to manifest in our lives.  Whether you structure your journal in some way like the sample pages or work freeform, journal work is one of the best ways to keep track ...

Setting Intentions - First Steps

This week we’re starting the Setting Intentions series Aeslin told you about earlier.  I hope you enjoy it.  Several times lately, I’ve had people mention they’re having trouble with spells or manifestation, or that nothing seems to be happening, and they’re not sure what they’re doing wrong.We all know that to cast any spell or manifest any change effectively, we must first set our intention, but what exactly does that mean?  While dictionary.com defines intention as, “an act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result,” or “the end or object intended; purpose,” for our purposes, we can use the working definition,” Your intentions are what you want to manifest, or what you want to happen.”  Sounds simple enough -- right?Well, it is simple enough, on the face of it.  However, first, of course, we have to define what we want.  This is where the first problem comes in.  For many, the problem is just in taking the time to think carefully to figure out what they want.Oth...
