Let’s Talk Witch – Knot Magick

 

In spellcrafting, knots offer a simple way to contain or loosen energy. The obvious symbolism of tying a knot indicates an intention to bind something or someone. If, for example, you wanted to prevent an enemy from harming you, you could create a poppet to represent your enemy and bind his hands and feet with string. If a witch preceives unwanted energies in a space–especially whle performing a spell–she can tie a knot in a piece of clothing or the altar cloth to trap that energy until after the magickal working.

You can tie energy of any kind into a knot.  Witches sometimes tie a line of knots on a long cord, placing thoughts, emotions, incantations, etc. into the knots. These lines are sometimes called a witch’s Ladder. Untying a knot at a later date frees the energy bound therein.

You can use knot symbolism in the following types of spells:

Binding and banishing ( especially illness and negative energy)

Channeling energy into a specific location (the energy can be captured in the knot, and then released when it’s most needed)

Securing relationships  (hence the term “tying the knot” to refer to marriage)

Tying up the loose ends of a situationo

You can tie intentions into knots too. Let’s say you want to stablize your finances. The best number for this purpose is four. You could make a money charm and secure the pouch with a gold ribbon. Tie four knots in the ribbon and concentrate on your goal each time you tie a knot. Or tie a ribbon around your bills, using four knots to limit the outflow of money.

Daily Motivator for December 20th – Something good in it

Something good in it

What appears to be a problem is not just a problem. It is an invitation to  explore new positive possibilities.

What seems impossible is not entirely impossible. It is challenging you to  look at the situation from a different perspective.

The obstacles that block you are also doing you a favor. They are guiding you  to become more creative, more innovative, more determined and purposeful.

Each negative thing has a positive element. That’s because you have the  amazing ability to learn, to adapt, to create and to transform life according to  your unique, positive vision.

There’s really no need to worry about what might or might not come. For no  matter what may come, there’s a way for you to create more goodness and richness  from it.

Enthusiastically embrace each moment with open arms. There’s something good  in it, waiting for you to bring it to life.

Daily Feng Shui Tip for Nov. 9th – ‘Chaos Never Dies’

The energies associated with this day might say that ‘Chaos Never Dies’ but remaining cool, calm and collected in the face of chaos can be as easy as taking four drops of Bach Rescue Remedy flower essence under the tongue, three times a day for as many days as it takes to assume a state of harmony and peace. Chaos will die quickly with this proven anxiety easer in hand.

Daily Motivator for Oct. 16th – Stronger than the problems

Stronger than the problems

Do not seek to be free of the problems. Work to be stronger than the  problems.

A life with no problems would be a life with no opportunities for growth or  achievement. That’s not what you want, and it is certainly not realistic.

In the real world there are difficult problems, and there will always be. Yet  there are also countless possibilities for progress and true fulfillment.

Don’t waste your time fantasizing about a life free of problems. Instead, use  your imagination and your efforts to transform those problems into positive  value.

Embrace each situation as it is, along with all the problems. Accept that the  problems exist, and you can then begin to successfully work through them.

Life will always be challenging in one way or another. So rise to the  challenges and use your unique set of abilities to make life great.

Knot Magick Spell To Heal

Knot magick spell to heal

You need an 8 inches long string. Mark the string 6 times, so that you have seven equal parts. Repeat the following 6 times and tie a knot each time:

‘Disease, no one asks your stay,
It’s time for you to fade.
With these knots, I ask your leave,
With these words I weave.’

Put the string in a container with salt (represents burying it in the ground). Make a seal for the container with the spell above written on a piece of paper. Get rid of the container in an appropriate manner.

Rid Yourself of Troubles (Knot Magick)

Rid Yourself of Troubles

Concentrate on something that is troubling you. When you are full of
emotion, firmly tie a knot in the cord and then leave the room and the
cord behind for awhile. Later on, after you’re relaxed and focused, go
back into the room and untie the knot, releasing what has been
troubling you. Visualize it disappearing.

A BASIC LOVE SPELL

A BASIC LOVE SPELL

(Be careful how you use these)

Take three cords or strings of various, pleasing pastel colors- perhaps pink, red, and green- and braid them tightly together. Firmly tie a knot near one end of the braid, thinking of your need for love.

 

Next, tie another knot, and another, until you have tied seven knots.  Wear or carry the cord with you until you find your love.

 

After that, keep the cord in a safe place, or give to one of the elements- burn and scatter the ashes in the ocean or in a stream.

Spell of the Cord

Spell of the Cord

 

By the knot of one, the spells begun
By the knot of two it cometh true
By the knot of three, thus shall it be
By the knot of four, tis strengthened more
By the knot of five,so may it thrive
By the kniot of six, the spell we fix
By the knot of seven, the stars of heaven
By the knot of eight,the hand of fate
By the knot of ninethe thing is mine.

Your Daily Feng Shui Tip for Nov. 23 – ‘Black Friday’

If you must get up before sunrise to take advantage of ‘Black Friday’ sales, let’s at least try to keep you in the red. On this day, take a gold marker or gold ink pen and draw the infinity symbol (the number eight on its side) on a piece of red paper. Write this Florence Shinn affirmative action mantra on the back, ‘My Universal Supply is endless,’ and then place this paper in the ‘Wealth’ area of main floor or bedroom. Leave this supercharged symbol in place for nine or 27 days. This Friday might be black, but your bottom line will be in red and gold!
