We all have times in our lives when things are hard and
we don't have much faith in ourselves.
I recommend doing this ritual whenever the feelings of doubt or fear start clouding
This is a group ritual, but it is possible to modify it for a solitary practitioner.
Cast the circle
and then go around the circle so everyone can say how they became strong.
"I became strong through facing my fears.
became strong through my friends.
I became strong through my family.
I became strong through making mistakes.
strong through taking a stand.
I became strong through dreaming."
Chant and raise power. The above can be modified to
be more personal.
CRYSTAL SPELL TO INCREASE PHYSICAL VIGOR
Some Spring Water A Few Pinches of Salt
First purify the crystal by washing it in salt water and then rinsing it.
hold it in both hands while closing your eyes and imagining yourself filling with the
healing energy of the crystal. Imagine
yourself bathed in a stream of pure energy which
runs from the crystal through your hands and into your body.
with the crystal under your pillow.
THE RING OF STRENGTH
This can be used for any battle, if made and used
The colors and words can obviously be altered to fit your own needs.
I chose the colors listed below because
they represented the things I consider to be
characteristics of strength. The male population will obviously want to look
colors and altar the spell to their liking. What you need:
Red, blue, orange, purple, black, yellow and silver
string (appropriate for making a bracelet).
Candles the colors of the strings (or 7 white candles) Tape Scissors
Say the following once, before you start the making the ring of strength,
once when you're half done making
the ring of strength, and once when you are
finished with the ring of strength:
I bring survival, protection and courage
with each red, blue and black knot
And with each orange, purple and silver I've tied, it was just justice,
and self assurance that I got.
Will yellow, quick intelligence is with me - secure my knots - these
things held together
By my will So mote it be!
SPELL OF THE COMB AND MIRROR
Purify area, cast circle, etc. Burn a white
candle for yourself, and say:
"O Lady of shimmering beauty,
For whom the stars are shining jewels
And the Universe
Her creation and plaything,
Weaver of destinies and Protectress of things wild and free
Make me now, I do ask, to be
Make me one with thee and grant me thy far-flung power
Grant to this, thy Witch and Sorceress
within and without.
As eternal as the boundless sea,
The calm assurance of my powers
To make any do my bidding,
the winds, waters, and fires,
The hills themselves lend willingly themselves to me.
Give to me, who am of thy ancient
The wisdom of ages, the lore of eons,
Knowledge of light, knowledge of dark.
Grant me beauty ever more perfect
I may reflect thee better.
Build magic within me, build power within me.
Power be drawn and power come.
me one with thee.
Make me greater, make me better
Grant me strength and grant me power.
O Goddess who is my friend
I give you love and thanks
O Beautiful One, may the magic I have summoned
Return the stronger when I
have need of it
So mote it be!"
TO MAKE THE RING OF STRENGTH BRACELET
Take a piece of each color - all at
equal length. Make the length very
long, for you'll need a lot of string.
Draw the strings together at one end and knot
them, making them into
one. Find something (something you can put tape on) - a table or...something
(unless you can
think of a better way) and tape the knot down securely.
Now take the first string, starting at the left and tie it once
with the second string.
Take the second string and tie it to the third string.
Take the third string and tie it to the
fourth string and so on until you've tied the second from
the last string to the very last string. Now take the last string
and tie it to the second from
the last string (and so on like you just did, only going backwards).
Keep doing this,
going back and forth, until you have a long, knotted bracelet that
will tie securely around your wrist. This may take a
while and is a lot of hard work,
but believe me it's well worth it. When you're done knotting, tie your new
of strength around your left wrist and simply wear it all the time.
It will give you strength. When the bracelet feels
it has given all it's worth...it
will simply fall off one day. If you don't feel you have
enough strength....you might
need to make another.
SELF EMPOWERMENT SPELL
This is a fairly simple spell, and of course you
should change it according to your tastes.
--1 white candle (probably the bigger the better) --mirror
The candle should
be cleansed before you begin, and could be infused with white energy,
the energy of love and strength. Meditate upon your
intentions before you begin. why do
you need to empower yourself? Is it because you wish to realize the beauty within yourself,
you wish others to see the beauty or strength you know that lies within you.
This spell also works best if you do a cleansing
of yourself, whether it is bath or shower or just
visualize all of the negativity that you are carrying with you washing
The candle should be placed in front of the mirror, and the mirror should face you.
Light the candle. Feel the
positive energy emanating from the candle.
If you worship a deity, call upon them to help you. Chant or say a prayer. This
is an example:
I walk in beauty with the Goddess.

She is within
me. All who see me, know Her.

A REQUEST TO THE LADY FOR STRONGER POWER
Lady Moon has spread her fingers
of night over my patch of reality,
And she watches me as I stand beneath her encompassing gaze
Away from those who would
cloud my vision.
Her sister stars glitter through the sky and sing for the night.
Mother, please fill me with your beauty
and reveal to me the mysteries of your silent domain.
My heart holds naught but love for you,
My soul wishes to sing
in harmony with its sisters within your embrace.
In love and respect I come before you
And I ask to be blessed with
the power of Lady Moon.
SPELL FOR COURAGE
If there is something you are afraid of, write it on a small
piece of paper in your own blood.
Burn it to ashes, and powder the ashes in a mortar & pestle with some cinnamon, nutmeg,
Use this mixture to flavor a) cookies, b) mulled wine, c) any other food you like.
When you mix in the
herbs and ashes, consecrate what you are cooking to the service of the God in you.
When you eat or drink, know that what
you are physically absorbing is the flesh of the God himself,
and that his courage is within you, If you like, you can
do an invocation, self-blessing, or other
charm which will remind you of this fact. One good one is:
May the Sun shine
within me, may Mars lend me his courage and Jupiter his strength.
Let the blood of heroes run in my veins, and my feet
walk in the paths of heroes.
My name is ___________, and I am brave. (repeat)
If you can do this while looking in a
mirror, so much the better.
Do this spell in full daylight, when the sun is shining.
Choose a candlestick you especially
like and reserve it for this use only.
If it is to be used outdoors, make sure it has a glass so as not to blow out.
in the darkness, light a pure white candle, and stare into the blue of the flame.

to think of all the things in the past and present which give you joy.
Like Peter Pan, "Think happy thoughts" if you want
When you reach a level of perfect serenity, stand up and without taking your
eyes from the candle and with your
major hand (the one which you use to write), trace in the
air a clockwise circle around the candle. Still without taking
your eyes from the candle, say aloud:
"By dark of moon, I recall may past,
And so sorrow, pain and hurt I cast,
the void, and dark abyss,
That my heart and soul be restored to bliss,
And there to stay forever more,
By the power
of the ancient lore.
I cleanse my heart, renew my soul,
By the power of the craft of olde"
Sit back down, blow out
the candle, and remain awhile cloaked in the night.
The effects of this spell can be felt immediately. Every time you begin
to feel "down",
remember this night and the feeling will pass. For those who are lonely, or feeling sad,
this is one
of the safest and best spells. Also you will find that the effect grows stronger
each and every time the spell is performed.
