Spirit Message of the Day – The Art of Spell Casting

“Bewitched, beguiled – who hasn’t felt like something or someone has cast a spell over them? It can be a scary, exciting time, when you hardly feel in control of your actions or feelings. Or perhaps you don’t enjoy being bewitched – feeling like someone or something else is controlling you. Or perhaps it is you who has bewitched someone else. Having that power over someone or something can be scary and exciting too. Quite a bit of responsibility comes with that power. It is better, more responsible and safer, to bewitch yourself and your life. The ability to bewitch can be harnessed and used consciously. You can do it and enjoy the results of your own focused intent and magick. And you can guard against becoming bewitched yourself. You can be the writer of your own destiny.”

“In Bewitching, we see a young, powerful witch.  Around her head, she wears the symbol of the moon, showing the moon in all its phases: waxing, full, and waning. Resting on her head, this symbol shows her focus and intent. She carries a pentagram, a symbol of the four elements: earth, water, air, and fire. The top point represents spirit, which rules all the elements. The pentacle in her hand indicates using her focus and intent to manifest change in the physical world. This is, in essence, the nature of magick. She is smart to be clothed in black, the color of protection and of the crone goddess.”

“Magick can be dangerous if misused, so a bit of protection and the wisdom of the crone goddess will be useful. For while this witch is smart and powerful, she lacks experience, so the ancient wisdom from the crone will serve her well. It seems she is willing to heed the crone’s wisdom, because a raven, a messenger from the spiritual realm, is on its way to her. The crescent moon shows that not all is revealed – that she doesn’t know everything and is wise to seek advice before casting her spell.”

“The power, knowledge, and wisdom you seek are all available to you. You can certainly accomplish what you wish. Use your abilities wisely, or there will be unforeseen consequences. Seek the advice of someone more experienced than you before implementing your plan, whether it is a spell, project, or course of action. Remember that with power comes responsibility. If you are planing a bit of magick, keep in mind this practice of many witches. It is a kind of ‘out’ clause to keep you from causing harm you don’t intend.  At the end of spell, say something like, “I ask for this or something better, for the greater good of all, and with harm to none. So mote it be.”

Today’s message is from Enchanted Oracle by Barbara Moore with art by Jessica Galbreth.

Remember all spells and casting should only ever be cast against yourself and your own personal life in order to empower, enlighten, and build up positive qualities and traits like self-esteem, self-confidence, intuition, and aid in attracting positive people and events into your life. Use spell cating to create positive change that is healthy for you and everyone involved. Remember what you put out there comes back to you triple fold.

The Rule of Three, also known as the Three-fold Law or Law of Return, is a religious tenet held by some Wiccans. It states that whatever energy a person puts out into the world, be it positive or negative, will be returned to that person three times. Some subscribe to a variant of this law in which return is not necessarily threefold.

According to John Coughlin the Law is “a literal reward or punishment tied to one’s actions, particularly when it comes to working magic”. The law is not a universal article of faith among Wiccans, and “there are many Wiccans, experienced and new alike, who view the Law of Return as an over-elaboration on the Wiccan Rede  is a statement that provides the key moral system in the Neopagan religion of Wicca and other related Witchcraft based faiths. The most common form of the Rede is An it harm none, do what ye will.
