Let’s Talk Witch – Our Mind Set
Our most important first tool when performing magick is our mind. You have to ask yourself a few questions before you start casting. Will this spell harm no one? Do I need this? Am I in the right state of mind to cast a spell?
These are just a few very important questions we need to ask ourselves. If you are sick, your magick may not be as strong as when you are healthy, so in those times you should be focused on self healing above everything else. There are so many steps you can cover here….but first…lets see where your mind is at and then we’ll continue from there. Don’t worry–there aren’t any difficult incantations to remember, no hard to pronounce power words. Simply logical and informative magickal applications to a better life. So take a deep breath, let it out slowly and clear your mind. Find your center, it’s easy to do. Just let go of all the hassles and stresses you have from the day–steer your mind away from all those fast paced thoughts of today’s society. And simplify. Go deep within yourself, and find who you really are. It really quite simple to find out who you really are deep down. Go back to basics. All those thoughts….get rid of them!
Think about the following…..
How often do you find yourself traveling through this world for others? How often do you find yourself compromising your beliefs, emotions and feelings for those around you? So as not to feel “uncomfortable” or in “pain” we see ourselves as if in a motion picture, acting out our lives in a drama that ends in need, want desire—for something different. For something that could have been. For something that should have been. Why do we walk down these roads? Why do we travel to these places at all? Is our vision skewed so dramatically by what others believe is right for us, that we feel the need to be someone other than ourselves? Carpe diem! Seize the day. Seize your life, take it for everything it is worth, hold onto that which makes you happy–that which brings you joy and contentment. Know that life’s lessons lead us into places that are sometimes dark and foreboding….you, somehow–when learned–these places turn to light. Know that happiness comes from within you, and not through others circumstances or fortune. Know that true happiness can be found in others…not when the time is right but when it is real. Trust your heart, trust in your soul—and life will catch up with you.
Live. Be free, and fly and shout as loudly as you want. Take hold of your dreams. Never let anyone try to influence your mind or your will. Be true to yourself and your will be able to live your dreams and find happiness beyond belief. Dare to dream, keep your mind clear at all times and use it wisely. For it is the most important tool you have in magick.
