The Modern Witch #13daysofmagic challenge is off to a great start and I have already seen some really amazing photos. This morning the timer on my phone reminded me that it was time to fulfill my daily challenge; doing magic for the sake of doing magic. I had thought I would have some great list of spells prepared to perform each day but I haven’t had the time to create such a list. As I stared at my phone I had no clue what I was going to do.
I decided this was a great time to go back to basics and meditate on it. Because I had no big plan I decided to ask myself a very selfish question. What do I need? Usually when I am doing magic it’s for a client or for a member of my community. I do little things here and there through out the day but I never really cast a spell for my own enjoyment. What did I need? I needed to manifest my personal goals like finishing a book and adding to my spiritual repertoire. Without hesitation I went to my book of shadows and found a manifestation spell I wrote a few years back. My first #13daysofmagic challenge photo is a manifestation spell for witches who are ready to get a little selfish.
Manifestation spell for the Selfish Witch
What you need
One Black Candle (To draw from the infinite)
Wisdom Herb Blend (I used Wisdom of Solomon from The Mystic Dream. Solomon Seal, Chamomile, or Mandrake would work great or this.)
Spirit Guide Oil (I used a special ritual blend however essential oil of Rue, Lavender, or Rose would work great.)
The World card from the Tarot (The card shown here is from the Giant Rider Waite)
Casting the spell
Dress your candle with the oil and then the herbs. Before dressing them hold each in your hand and send a little bit of your Holy Fire (auric energy) into each as you whisper your intention to them. “[Wisdom Herb] I seek to align with your powers of wisdom and ask your aide in this working.” “[Spirit Guide Oil] I seek to align with your powers of guidance and ask your aide in this working.”
Place the candle in a fire safe dish and place that over The World card. Draw a pentacle of Holy Fire over the candle and recite the spell.
“By spirit guide and witch’s fire, I summon now my heart’s desire.
Burn ye bright and light the way- for nothing in my path shall stay.
By Queen of Heaven and of Hell, I claim my right to cast this spell.
Head my words and hear me now, for open roads this will endow!
[With a commanding tone declare what it is you wish to manifest and light the candle]
As I will it, so must it be, for the good of all but most for me!”
