WOTC Extra – Very Simple Dedication Ritual


Very Simple Dedication Ritual


Here is a simple dedication ritual. On the night of a full moon, go outside and draw a circle around yourself with your athame. Once you are inside your circle, light a white candle and gaze at it until you can feel the moonlight filling ing your soul. Then pour a libation to the goddess from your chalice onto the ground. Hold the chalice up to the moon and say,

“With all my heart and soul, I, __________, willingly dedicate myself to the Craft and to you.

So mote it be.”

Drink from the chalice, and then sit quietly in your circle until it feels like the right time to go back inside.

Let’s Talk Witch – Dedication




Some might say that it takes dedication to be a Witch. And they would be right in more ways than one.

When a Witch says that he or she is dedicated to the Craft, it might just mean that she or he puts in a lot of time and effort. More likely, though, they are referring to a particular ceremony called a dedication.

A dedication is a formal declaration of intent, a wedding vow of sorts, if you will, that binds the Witch to the practice of Witchcraft or to a coven or group. While not necessarily a vow of the “til death do us part” sort (since you can always change your mind and take up Buddhism instead, if you like), it is a serious commitment and should never be made lightly.

Some Witches know right away that they want to make this commitment, and some practice for their entire lives without ever making a formal dedication-neither way is right or wrong. In truth, the only “wrong” way is to make a dedication frivolously, without thinking it through first.

Otherwise, there are a number of ways to go about it. If you are a Solitary Witch, there are lots of great self-dedication rituals available in books or online. Better yet, just light some candles, cast your circle, and speak from the heart-the gods will certainly hear you.

If you are in a group, your high priest and/or high priestess will probably dedicate you, usually with the rest of the group there to help out and bear witness. You can even invite friends and family as long as they will treat the event with the proper reverence.

A group dedication is a slightly different event-if your group is just starting out, you will probably hold a ritual that dedicates you all at the same time.

No matter what kind of dedication you are doing, the ritual will be beautiful, moving, and will change your life forever. Who could ask for more?

WOTC Extra – Thinking Makes It So

RETOUR DE CHASSE Thinking Makes It So

In the movie What Dreams May Come, the character played by Robin Williams dies and then wakes up in the afterlife. The place looks, smells, tastes, and feels more or less like the so-called real world. But he quickly learns that in this place, whatever he thinks or desires manifests instantly. All of it is a construct of consciousness.

Magick works in the same way. What you think is what you get. The manifestation may not be immediate— although it can be. If your belief and your intent are strong enough, if you bring passion to your spell, and if you can focus your energy clearly toward a specific goal, then you have a good chance of achieving what you want.

Knowing exactly what you want to accomplish and stating your intention with absolute clarity is essential whenever you perform a spell. Otherwise, your spell could backfire. The fact is, you’re doing magick all the time, whether or not you realize it. As noted later, the Law of Attraction states that your thoughts, emotions, and actions affect the energetic patterns around you, and the most significant “tools” in magick are your thoughts and feelings. That’s why it’s important to use your magickal power with clear intent, so you can produce the results you truly desire.

Underlying all magick is a simple principle of physics: For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Remember that old computer axiom, garbage in, garbage out? Magick is like that, too: If you put bad thoughts and feelings in, you’ll get bad stuff back and vice versa. So be care what you ask for!

Let’s Talk Witch – Ten Good Things Magick Can do for You

Egyptian beautyLet’s Talk Witch – Ten Good Things Magick Can do for You

Before we ever get into the how, let’s consider why learning to do magick is worth your time and effort. Here are ten ways magick can help to make your life better. It can:
Improve your love life
Attract prosperity
Keep you and your loved ones safe from harm
Enhance your health
Protect your home and personal property
Open up new career opportunities
Give you more control over your life
Improve interactions with family, friends, and coworkers
Ward off problems and enemies
Strengthen your intuition and psychic skills
People who don’t understand magick have made it seem weird or evil, and Hollywood sensationalizes it to the point of absurdity. Actually, there’s nothing scary, strange, or silly about magick— it’s a natural ability you were born with, a talent you can develop just like musical or mathematical talent. All it takes is desire, a little training and practice.

Wiccan Priestess COLOR MAGIC

We all use and make decisions about color in our daily lives— what colors we wear, which paints we use, the cars we drive, the food we eat, even the shampoos we buy. A whole host of decisions we make every day are at least partly decided by color. Most people have a favorite color. Mine is purple, and most of my home is decorated in shades of this color. Even my cloak is a beautiful shade of heather. It is a color that I am comfortable with. You will have your own favorite shade that features prominently in your life— and hopefully you have an understanding partner if your favorite color is acid green or Barbie pink!

The use of color can really enhance your magic and spell work, because each color lends its own energy and its associations to your spells and rituals. There are many ways to include color magic in your work— from candle magic to knot magic, from spell bags to plant magic. In fact, all of your magic will be greatly enhanced by your own knowledge of which colors work in which ways. I believe that there is no right or wrong color chart; what works for one will not necessarily work for all. If a certain color means a certain thing to you, who’s to say that you’re wrong and some impersonal chart is right? For example, when you think of the Goddess, do you see her as white? Silver? Gold? Blue? Who’s to tell you which is the right color?

The right color is the one with which you feel confident and comfortable working. And the right colors are the ones you can remember. If you want to create a spell spontaneously, you don’t want to have to go looking for a color-correspondence chart to find out which color works in a certain way. You have to trust what’s in your heart and work in a way that is true to you. I suggest you create your own color chart in your Book of Shadows. Spend some time thinking about what each color evokes for you and write it down. If you need some guidelines, below is the basic list I use in my own magic. Maybe it will give you a starting point or help you add to your own list. If you already work with color, try exploring some of the more intricate shades of each color to expand your catalog.

White: protection and purity; use in all magic as a universal color

Black: to absorb negativity and spirit contact; for banishing spells

Yellow: confidence and growth; for harmony spells Red: strength and passion; for power spells

Blue: health and patience; for awareness spells

Purple: peace and meditation; for blessing spells Pink: relaxation and friendship; for love spells

Green: nature and Fae magic; for wealth spells

Brown: earth and animals; for grounding spells

Orange: luck and vitality; for strength spells

Silver: the Goddess and the moon; for balance spells

Gold: the God and the sun; for power spells

Every color, of course, has varying shades— from pastel to deep or bright. Make your list as simple or as complicated as you like. A good way to build your own list is to have someone read off colors to you and you say the first thing that comes into your head that you associate with each color. That way, you will know that you are working with what’s true to your heart and with something that you will remember.
