PLay Day Magick (e) More Magickal Fun

Green_godmother

The ideas in this article are a very small sampling of all the possibilities for play magick, which are endless! Let your own childhood play-time favorites inspire you to devise even more types of magickal fun. Might you be able to skip over obstacles by skipping an enchanted jump rope? Could a game of magickal freeze tag be used to stop fear, doubt, or other baneful energies? Perhaps those dolls or action figures could come in handy for a bit of imitative magick, allowing you to mimic and play act the circumstances you desire. Challenge yourself to come up with some new ideas for play magick. How might you use a bouncy ball as a tool for magick? What other ideas can you think of? Play and magick are intrinsically linked, and the potential, possibility, and power of play magic are truly as limitless as the value of fun itself!

Copywrite Melanie Marquis in Lleweylln’s Witches’ Datebook 2015 Pages 6-9

I hope you have some fun with these ideas. I would love to hear from anyone willing to share how you took or are thinking of taking a childhood game, toy, board game, etc as Melanie says the list has endless possibilities and using it for magick. Remember our inner child can get restless and this would be a good way to soothe it. I think Melanie’s ideas are also a great way to teach children of all ages a little magick and think of the great time the family can have doing an activity together.

I am going to dig out my old board game called “LIFE” and play it with the intention that I will reach my goal of having my  first book self-published by Spring Equinox 2016! Now have some fun and play but remember your intentions, spells, etc will still have results so make sure you think something through before trying it. Maybe even write down the steps you need to take, what you will need in way of supplies and/or magickal tools and definitely write out any spell you will be using no point in saying a wrong word and have the spell back-fire on you. You can do the preparation but still have fun and do not forget the Wicce Rede  “Harm none, do as ye will

Play Day Magic (d) Magickal Hide-and-Go Seek

images (8)

Need an opportunity or resource to manifest? Grab a friend and try a round of magickal hide -and-go-seek! One person acts as the seeker, while the other person becomes an embodiment of whatever is desired, be it a new car, more food, a job, a peaceful environment, or any other goal. The hider hides, then the seeker finds, shouting at the moment their quarry is first sighted that they have definitely found exactly what they were looking for, exactly what they need.

By Melaine Marquis Here we are at “More Magickal Fun” the last of Melaine’s article in Lleweylln’s Witches Datebook 2015 pages 6-9. I hope these bring some fun into your life and magick. UNtil tomorrow have fun and take a nice walk outside weather permitting. Blessed be.

Play Day Magick (a) Spinning Top Charm

images (6)

A simple spinning top can be used effectively for magickal intended to speed something up or slow something down. Hold the top in your hand and think about the circumstances you’re aiming to effect, infusing the top with this new identity. For instances, if you wanted to speed up the processing of a job application, you would think about the top as if it is the actual job application itself, As another example, if you wanted to impede the spread of weeds in your garden, you would think about the top being the weeds empowering it to be in perfect stand-in and substitute for the actual weeds it represents.

SPin the top. If your looking to speed something up, spin it as fast as you can, and think about the circumstance you want to affect speeding up, moving more swiftly by the second as the top rotates. If you like, incorporate a chant such as, “Fast, faster, fastest!” to help magnify the magickal power.

End the visualization and cast the energy of your intentions into the top while it is still spinning strongly; look away and end the spell before the spinning slows. If you don’t get it right your first shot–just try again until you do. Alternatively, if you were trying to slow something down, you would spin the top then impede it, perhaps nudging it with your wand to give it a clumsy rotation or stopping it abruptly mid-spin with a tap of your fingertip, beginning visualizations as the top loses its speed and casting the core of magick at the moment the top stops completely.

Tomorrow “Stuffed Animal Magick”. Until then have a fun and wonderful day. Blessed be

Full Wicce or Wiccan Rede.

wiccan-rede-200

Being known as the counsel of the Wise Ones:

Bide the Wiccan laws ye must- in perfect love an’ perfect trust.

Live an’let live- fairly take an’fairly give.

To bind the spell every time, let the spell be spirly give.

Cast the Circle thrice about to keep the evil sake in rhyme.

Soft of eye an’ light of touch – speak little, listen much.

Deosil go by the waxing Moon – sing an’ dance the Wiccan rune.

Widdershins go when the Moon doth wane, an’ the Werewolf howls by the dread Wolfsbane,

When the Lady’s Moon is new, kiss the hand to her times two.

When the Moon rides at her peak then your heart’s desire seek.

Heed the Northwind”d might gale – lock the door and drop the sail.

When the wind comes from the South, love will kiss thee on the mouth.

When winds blows from the East, except the new and set the feast.

When the West wind blows o’er the thee, departed spirits restless be.

Nine woods in the Cauldron go – burn them quick an’ burn them slow.

Elder be the LAdy’s tree – burn it not or cursed ye”ll be.

When the Wheel begins to turn – let the Beltane fires burn.

When the Wheel has turned a Yule, light a Log an’ let Pan rule.

Heed ye flower, bush an’ tree – by the Lady blessed be.

Where rippling waters go – cast a stone an’ truth ye’ll know.

When ye have need, hearken not to other’s greed.

With the fool no season spend, or be counted as a friend.

Merry meet an’ Merry part- bright the cheeks an’ warm the heart.

Mind the Threefold law ye should – three times bad and three times good.

When misfortune is enow, wear the blue star on thy brow.

True in love ever be unless thy lover’s false to thee.

Eight words the Wicce Rede fulfill-

an’ harm it none, do what ye will.

These are the guidelines of our Craft and faith that most Witches that walk in the Light follow. Some of the spelling may seem off to today’s standards but they are old English.

The last sentence is what sums up what a coven does or a solitary Witch “And it harm none, do as ye will”.

Let’s Talk Witch – Magical Ethics

Celtic & British Isles Graphics
Magical Ethics

I will write down a more detailed description below, but here is a quick checklist whenever you do magic:
Never work to influence any other person’s will or freedom of choice
Never work to cause harm to others
Never work for ego or unreasonable financial gain

When working on a magical level we must understand the possibility that any change we attempt to make by the way of the magical arts may be returned to us. In some Craft traditions, and particularly Wicca, it is believed that you receive three time whatever you send out – the ‘Threefold Law of Return’. The true origin of the Threefold La is sketchy, and something that only you can decided whether to follow. However, it isn’t a bad rule of thumb to keep in mind that whatever we send out we are going to get back, and quite possibly more generously than we offered it. Whether what you get back is positive or negative is then, ultimately up to you. We create our own path, and we reap the consequences of our actions.

So, if we choose to believe in the power of cause and affect, then that means we must take responsibility for our own actions – both magically and non-magically – within our day to day lives. So then, when working with magic and ritual, it is our responsibility to ensure that we do not cause accidental harm towards ourselves or anyone else. Take spells seriously! They are not completely harmless and you could cause disastrous consequences if you do not take them seriously! So, how do we do this? Keep reading below:

When we decide to do a spell, we must first think about HOW the spell will reach the end goal. For instance, consider that you have done a spell for prosperity, so that you can get out of debt. If you don’t specify HOW that money is going to get to us, it is statistically more likely that the money will come to you through the death of a family member rather than buying a winning lottery ticket. Magic is like electricity in a way; if you do not give it a specific way to travel then it will find the quickest route itself, which usually ended up with someone being shocked. So, give your magic a safe route and give it specifics so it will work without hurting you or anyone else.

A good idea would be to use a good circle casting if that is what the spell requires. I have a separate page that will describe this in more detail. Also, it is a good idea to use affirmations at the end of your spell. A popular one is ‘for the good of all’, though there are others out there. It is called a ‘fail-safe’.

A Little Secret That Only Witches Can Know About. Can I Trust You?

Every secret organization or religion has a secret or two. Of course, you won’t never hear about them because they are secrets. Makes senses. Most of these organizations and religions have secrets to keep the public out and in the dark, to exclude them. On the other hand, our religion is not like that we have had to keep it secret just to keep it alive. If it was for our ancestors keeping our entire religion secret, we wouldn’t have a religion.

The secret I am getting ready to share with you is not that big of deal. It was used in the Burning Times to determine if the person you were meeting was a witch. You can see during this period of time why it was very important to know who you were meeting.

Here is the ritual. Enjoy!

This is a magic witches hand shake spell. This spell is cast to find out if someone you know may or may not be a witch. After casting this magic spell, you will then shake the hand of the person you are inquiring about, and your answer will be revealed in the handshake. It can also be used to slightly put a thought or idea inside the mind of a person without coming right out and suggesting it. We offer many more free magic spells here for you to use and to try.

Extend your right index finger and lightly touch the wrist of the person exactly where the pulse is felt. By touching the pulse it throws the acquaintance completely off his balance for just an instant , but in that instant plant an initial
thought, ( example : I am the one you want for the job) this
really works and is cool, try it.

*You can also determine if the other person is a witch by the way they grasp your hand. If their right index finger is extended and touching your pulse area, more than likely they are a with.*

Daily OM for February 27th – A Magical Mind

A Magical Mind
Wish

by Madisyn Taylor

When we wish for something our consciousness opens to receiving it like a flower unfolding its petals to receive a bee.

From blowing dandelion seeds into the air to throwing a penny into a fountain, we have all felt inspired to make a wish, to whisper our secret desires into the ears of the universe and wait for signs that we have been heard. Some wishes come true while others remain ethereal visions that either stay with us or fade like a star in the light of morning. Whether they come true or not, wishes are important missives, expressing our heart’s desire as well as our intention to create something new in our lives. When we wish for something, our consciousness opens to receiving it, like a flower unfolding its petals to receive a bee.

There is something innocent and magical about making a wish, something that recalls the energy of childhood. Wishing is not about formulating a plan and following it step by step to attain a goal, which is the realm of adulthood. Wishing is more like a playful volley across the universe, an invitation to play. Waiting for the response is an integral part of the process. Wishing inspires an innocent opening to the possibility of magic as we wait to see if the invisible realm will bring our wish to life. This opening is a beautiful gesture in and of itself, regardless of the outcome. We place ourselves in a magical mind, and this mind is arguably as wonderful as the fulfillment of our wish itself.

In our straightforward, action-oriented society, we may tend to dismiss the power of this seemingly passive process, yet the power of a wish is well known, hence the cautionary phrase, “Be careful what you wish for. If you have given up wishing in favor of more adult pursuits, you might want to bring its magic back into your life. The next time you see the first star of the evening, or find yourself in front of a birthday cake covered in flaming candles, give yourself the gift of the magical realm that you knew so well as a child—close your eyes, open your mind, and make your wish.

Let’s Talk Witch – Using Our Five Senses in Magick

Witchy Comments & Graphics
Let’s Talk Witch – Using Our Five Senses in Magick

This is part 1 of a WOTC mini-series on the Five Senses Used in Magick

All material are taken from an excerpt by Marion Sipe’s article,
“Engaging All Five Senses in Spellwork” which can be found
in the Llewellyn’s Almanac for 2014.
 

Part 1 – Engaging All Five Senses in Spellwork

Spellwork is the practice of bringing the possible into reality whether the spells are for better health, a new job, or tastier garden tomatoes. All of these goals, and most others, work on the principle that the worker uses their own will to shape reality, and because of this, the worker uses their own will to shape reality, and because of this, the worker must be able to form a clear picture of the intended outcome. You can’t create what you can’t imagine so the more clearly the goal is identified, the more likely the desired outcome. Engaging all of our senses in spellwork can help us define that goal and give it aspects that appeal to our need to interact with something to prove to ourselves it is real. Additionally, sometimes we need to define goals that aren’t concrete, but rather involve abstractions such as emotions and memories. Such goals can be hard to represent, but by using our other senses, we can find representation for them, and manifest even the most abstract goals into reality.

While visualization is a much praised and important part of spellwork, each of our four other senses has the potential to connect us to our spellwork in deeper and more intense ways. Human beings are primarily visual creatures, but that does not mean that the visual sense is the strongest for everyone. Nor does it mean that our other senses have less to offer. Many of us already use cues for our other senses in ritual; a drumbeat or music in the background, incense in the Air, cakes and ale. However, we don’t always bring these elements into the spellwork itself. We can use smells, tastes, sounds, and textures in spellcraft to create a deeper link with the magick as well as a more complete representation of the desired result.

For instance, smells provide a powerful trigger for memory and emotion. As an example, you can improve a spell to relieve insomnia by using the smell of fresh linen, applying the scent to a small sachet tucked into your pillow. The scent becomes another part of the spell whether it’s the use of baby powder in a sachet meant to aid in fertility or using a vial of oil as the focus for a calm flying spell.

We can also use scents to bring a spell to mind again after the casting, strengthening the magick or its effect on you. Additionally, spells that you can taste can have a huge impact on the body, and make a great vehicle for workings such as health spells or other purposes involving the body. The sense of touch plays a large role in our interaction with others, but is also the medium through which we interact with and manipulate the world. When we think of something as material, we think of being able to touch it; therefore, giving a texture and feel to the goals of our spellwork lends a quality of realism that brings them closer to manifestation.

“Tomorrow we continue with this series by looking at how our sense of Smell works into our spellwork.”
