Bright blessings, Wealthy, Wise Witch!
…Yes, I’m addressing YOU!
I know you’re ready to OWN that creative business you’ve been dreaming about since you were seven. Well, here is one of my best tips to supercharge your intention to expand your life AND your biz!
We’ve all heard “double, double toil and trouble,” and “bibbity bobbity boo,” but did you know that incantations work in real life?
As we all know, magick in the real world is not usually as simple as just saying the magick words once at the ritual altar and then watching the glittery purple smoke turn your pumpkin into a coach in seconds right before your very eyes…
REAL witches know that magick often takes time, practice, and deep inner transformation to manifest into the physical…
And it all relies heavily on our ability to stay in tune with the energy of our desire, rain or shine. To me, magick is (almost) all psychological, so a healthy relationship between the conscious and subconscious mind is pretty much the best tool we have for manifesting the life (and business) we truly deserve to have!
In the self-development world, we call them “affirmations.” In the New Age community, they’re referred to as “mantras.” Others call them “power words” or “prayers.”
Whatever you choose to call it, it’s extremely empowering when we choose to occupy our thoughts with conscious intention. We are the grand sum of the thought patterns of our subconscious mind, so any time we catch our mind going down that old familiar path of negative BS (belief systems) that are no longer serving us, we can use this tool to re-route!
Any words of power that clearly portray the person you choose to be can be used as a mantra.
You can figure out what words of power you need at this point in your journey by brainstorming words that describe how you desire to feel. For example, say I desire to feel LOVING of myself and others, TRUSTING in myself and in the Universe, and EMPOWERED to make the healthiest decisions for myself in the year ahead.
To create a mantra, all I have to do is engage the chakras by stating “I AM” before each word of power. Using the words I chose above, my mantra might be, “I am loving. I am trusting. I am empowered.”
This is already a great start for focusing the mind on the right things to attract a higher vibe life… But the mind sometimes bores quickly of really simple concepts like that. It starts to question them. Sooo we can give the mind an even more convincing story by getting more specific:
“I am loving of myself and others. I trust in The Universe and I trust in myself. I am empowered to be my best self.”
Memorizing a detailed “I am” statement, and repeating it whenever you feel you need a reminder of your core desired feelings, is insanely useful! But we can still go even deeper with thus practice.
Once we know our core desired feelings, we can sculpt them unto sentences that describe a specific situation we’re currently navigating through. Take the new year for example. I work with the month surrounding the Winter Solstice as the turning of the year. So here, I’ve fashioned my core desired feelings into a conviction for 2018.
“I enter into 2018 with perfect love and perfect trust. I take energetic responsibility for the direction of my own life. Magick is the power to write my own story, and here I am, with pen in hand.”
I took phrases that describe my desire which also evoke certain connotations from my culture. (The definition of “culture” is “way of life,” by the way). “Perfect love and perfect trust” is a popular phrase from the witchy community, for example, so using it makes me feel “witchy” in fun way. “Taking energetic responsibility for the direction of my own life” is the definition I came up with to describe what it means to be a witch. And the moto of my brand is “Magick is the Power to Write Your Own Story.” So the combination of all these connotations evoke feelings of truth and power in my subconscious mind.
…But wait, there’s MORE!
The reason so many stereotypically “witchy” spells are spoken in rhyme is because rhymes are easier and more engaging to memorize and repeat.
Something about rhyming words really gets the attention of the subconscious mind, which is also why we teach rhymes to children. The subconscious mind us very much like child, so lets have some fun with it:
“At Solstice Tide, I know I must,
With perfect love and perfect trust,
Walk boldly into a brand new year.
I lead with love and conquer fear.
I own my lessons and hone my power
That my goals shall blossom like a flower.
Witchy, wealthy, worthy and wise,
I clear out old energy and watch my vibe rise.
Magick is the power to write my own story.
With pen in hand, I map out my glory.”
See, that was just so much more enchanting, wasn’t it! And, trust me, going through the steps to craft your incantation is TOTALLY worth it, because the experience of it is a sort of ritual that gets you really up close and personal with where you’re at and where you desire to be!
Use this process to craft incantations for every area of your life and business, and turn to them any time you feel triggered by remnants of your outdated life story… And don’t forget to also repeat them when you’re experiencing evidence of your goals coming into fruition, too!
So what is YOUR 2018 incantation?
