6 Magickal Affirmations to Grow Your Witchy Power

What are magickal affirmations?

Magickal affirmations are something probably many of us overlook, regardless of the stage of witchy practice we are in. I know witches and occult practitioners from novice to advanced that use this method to great success, so it would seem that its not just limited to being new at something.

Affirmations are simply positively-oriented statements that we repeat in our heads, or, for even better effect, out loud to directly and consciously change our thinking, perception, and eventually our reality.

Magickal affirmations are just applying this concept to enhancing our magickal abilities or building magickal skills and habits that we particularly want to focus on.

Orienting our thought around the acquisition of a skill or the building or a skill or ability not only puts it in the forefront of our consciousness, it also creates a direct energetic connection between our mind and our energy around this skill or ability.

How do affirmations work?

I like to think of these as a spell you do on yourself.

Affirmations create that conscious connection between our mind and our energy. This could be thought of as bringing our conscious focus to something as opposed to passively practicing something.

Think about the difference between these two statements:

I wish I could learn to read tarot more proficiently.

or

I am proficient at reading tarot.

One of those is passive and the other is active and takes possession of the act or ability.

You can practice reading tarot all day every day, but if the way you consciously think about being better at tarot is the first statement, a wish, you won’t get nearly as far as if you confidently tell yourself every day before practicing that you are already proficient or skilled at it.

This can be applied to any other skill or ability in your magickal practice, and similar to the way we write out an intention statement in the present tense (“I have acquired $100 to pay this bill” vs “I wish for $100 to pay this bill”), we are setting an intention and sending it out to the universe, but more importantly, to our self that we can and will do this thing.

Usually, affirmations are something we repeat out loud a number of times, maybe in a mirror, or maybe just ourselves upon waking or before bed. Perhaps they are something you say while getting into a trance state before a spell or ritual, or maybe you use them while meditating.

If you are unable to say an affirmation out loud for any reason, you can always focus intently on the affirmation statement in your mind, perhaps in a meditative state, or just while envisioning the desired outcome. Repeat as many times as you feel you need, usually at least 3.

You can also write out affirmation statements in a journal or diary if you are unable to say them out loud. I feel like this method does not work as well for me personally, however, that may not be the case for you, so try it and see.

What kind of affirmations should you use?

First, I think its wise to pick one or two things you want to change. If you have 10 skills or habits you want to make changes to, it won’t be as effective to work on all of them at once, as your conscious energetic focus will be spread thin.

Pick probably two max and think of what exactly you want the outcome to be. There are two main types of affirmations that most people will use:

  1. Obtaining or enhancing a skill or ability.
  2. Changing a habit, whether good or bad.

There may be others, but most will fall into one of these two categories when boiled down to their most basic form.

Just like a goal should be specific, so should an affirmation. ‘I am good at magick’ is pretty vague, but ‘My spells are successful’ is probably much better.

So nail down exactly what it is you are trying to yield from your affirmation practice. I’ve included some options here below, should you not really know where to start.

I am a powerful witch.

This one is kind of vague, but also can be used as a general confidence booster when you need it. If you’re going through a particularly low bout of self esteem or maybe just new to witching, consider starting here for a good all around magickal affirmation. This can also be used when you need to develop better ownership of yourself and your space.

Being a magickal practitioner that doubts themselves or doesn’t own their power and space can set you up for not just failure, but backfires in your magickal efforts. So, believe in yourself, you powerful witch.

I can affect my life in positive ways.

This is if you feel powerless and perhaps don’t think you can make the changes you seek, or don’t think that you really have much influence. Maybe you still live with parents who don’t accept your path, or perhaps you feel like bad things are always happening to you.

You can affect your life in positive ways, and as soon as you start saying it, you can move on from where you are.

I wield ultimate influence over every aspect of my life.

This is a bit more specific version of the previous affirmation statement, and good for when you need to claim yourself, your space, and your power/energy. This is for those who want to break free of toxic people or places, who need to step into their power finally, and for those struggling to realize they are just divine beings inhabiting a physical shell.

I am a successful [insert whatever you want here- profession, type of witch, etc].

Let’s say you need something even more specific to happen. Perhaps you just started out as a writer. ‘I am a successful writer’ or even ‘My work will be published this year’ could be options here.

‘I am a successful kitchen witch’ might be more what you’re looking for, as you learn more about a particular path within magick and witchcraft.

My spells are successful.

I don’t know that this really needs any explanation. If you doubt your abilities and don’t think your spells will work, then they won’t. Try this magickal affirmation each day to build your confidence.

I will learn [insert subject or skill here- tarot, runes, to control psychic powers, etc].

Again, self-explanatory. What magickal skills do you want to improve at? Create a magickal affirmation statement to build your confidence and consciously grow the energetic connection you have to those skillsets.


Hopefully that gives you some ideas for where to start with magickal affirmations. These spells on yourself require nothing other than your focus and energy while saying or thinking them and over time, if you do this for a month or so, you should see yourself gain the things you are asking for simply by applying your conscious focus to those efforts.

Just go vote

It’s election day here in the US, and this election has been called one of the most pivotal in our country’s history. Record numbers of voters are turning out to cast their vote and let their voices be heard.

If you are unhappy with the way things are right now, go vote. Yes, it does matter. If 10,000 more people all decided their votes DO matter, that’s enough to swing a county or a state, even. If 100,000 people decided their votes DO matter, that’s even enough to swing a national election.

Just go vote. That’s all I have for you today.

5 magickal uses of cloves

It’s fall and winter is fast approaching. The scent of cloves will be all over the place, from retail stores, to holiday-scented candles, to baking spices.

What’s not to love about the way cloves smell? They (usually) make us feel happy, perhaps nostalgic, and even inspired. And there’s a reason for that. Cloves (Sygizium aromaticum) have long been used in kitchen witchery, hedge witchery, and folk magick because of their powerful properties.

Cloves are aligned with the element Fire, associated with Jupiter and masculine energy.

Cloves Attract Wealth and Financial Success

Perhaps one of their best-known magickal attributes is their association with money-drawing and wealth. And, after the year we’ve had in 2020, who couldn’t use a little (or a lot) extra money help?

A great way to attract money or wealth is to use cloves in kitchen spell. You can boil them all day on your stovetop with some fruit (oranges and apples work well), perhaps some mint leaves for additional wealth-boosting power, and some positive affirmations such as ‘I attract wealth and beneficial financial opportunities’ as you stir the pot throughout the day.

The scent of the cloves cooking with those other plants will permeate your house and raise the vibrations, welcoming in opportunities and drawing to you the wealth you ask for.

You can also add them to a floor wash, either as several drops of essential oil, or use the leftover boiled water from your stovetop pot and put it in a spray bottle. Spritz your floors, particularly those around the entrance to your home and mop lightly. If you have carpet, you can also spray the door frame and threshold.

Cloves Bring Mental Clarity

Tough decisions to make or feeling like you aren’t focused? Cloves can be used to clear your mind and focus better on what is important. You can also use them to help you sort out information to make better decisions.

Rub a drop or two of clove essential oil on your temples (you may want to dilute in a few drops of carrier oil) as you take a moment to clear your head and ask important questions.

You can also keep a few cloves in a charm bag or just in your pocket or purse as you go about your day to keep your thinking clear and unobstructed.

Cloves Ward Off Evil Spirits

Cloves are a purifying plant, which can remove spirits with ill intent from a space, so they are often used in banishing or purification incense or rituals for that reason. They can also be placed in charm bags to place above doorways or windows, or ground and sprinkled on your thresholds to ward off those who would do you harm.

As a purifier, you can add clove essential oil to a spray bottle of spring water and spritz in the corners of rooms, on mirrors, or other areas where energy stagnates or seems to get heavy. Cloves will uplift the energy those spaces and welcome in positive energy.

Cloves Attract Love

They are said to be an aphrodisiac and can be added to food you cook for someone you wish to fall in love with you, or can be used in love or sexuality spells to enhance passion and romance.

The scent of cloves alone may be enough to stimulate some individuals’ senses and promote feelings of love or sensuality, as the spicy nature of the plant naturally promotes passion.

Cloves Are Protective

Because they are shaped like nails, they have been associated with protection by several cultures. Nails are commonly used in protection spells or workings, partly for their iron content, but also because of their ability to bind one thing to another.

The principle of sympathetic magick applies to the protection abilities of cloves, as they are not made of iron, which is the principle reason nails are considered protective, yet they resemble and represent iron nails in nature, therefore can be used as symbols of such in magick.

Carry cloves with you if you need some extra psychic protection, place them above thresholds to protect spaces, or grind them and add them to dressings for candles or other items used in protection spells, especially those for protection from illness or bad health.

So, maybe this fall and winter, as you get lost in all the favorite scents of the season, try to pick out the cloves in all the candles, incenses, body sprays, and potpourri.

Magickal symbolism of spirals

In our exploration of symbolism and how it can be used in magickal practice, the spiral is perhaps something you’ll see in virtually every spiritual path, cultural tradition, or religious system. It can mean very different things, depending on the context and the system in which it is being used, but there are some universal consistencies as well.

Spirals in Mathematics

First of all, if you don’t think math and spirituality and occultism are not just intertwined, but deeply embedded in one another, think again. The spiral is perhaps one of the most universally understood examples of where math and spirit overlap.

The spiral is found throughout not just nature on Earth, but across the universe. You can find them in the horns on animals, hurricanes in the ocean, and the shape of galaxies outside our own. On an even more minute scale, you can find spirals in your fingerprints, the shape of the double helix of our DNA, and even some bacteria, which form in spiral shapes.

And these spirals mostly all conform to a certain logarithmic ratio of each new turn about the center to the others. This is referred to as the golden spiral, and based on the golden ratio (represented by the Greek letter phi, 1.618).

The fact that nature and the cosmos display this ratio so mathematically perfectly is thought to hold significant meaning, both symbolically and spiritually, and many different cultures and spiritual traditions observed this phenomena over time (and without the use of modern calculators, I might add).

Spirals in Spirituality

Which brings me to the next point. Spirals can be interpreted based on whether they appear to open from the center or are closing in on the center. Think ‘expanding’ vs ‘contracting.’

They are the archetypal path of growth and transformation, but also decay and dissolution. They can be both waxing or waning.

Examples of spirals commonly found in spiritual symbolism might include just spiral drawings, but also coiled serpents, spiral staircases (ascending or descending, depending on perspective of the viewer), vines twisting around something, a whirlpool of water, and even smoke plumes rising off a flame.

The double serpents of the caduceus are another example of spirals, actually a double spiral, which generally symbolizes the marriage of the two seemingly opposing symbolic paths.

Spirals are often used to depict a journey, especially a transformative one, or just transformation itself. They can also symbolize the winds, especially the transformative winds of time. And similarly, the destructive, but still transformative, whirlpool currents of the ocean.

They are also symbolic of shamanic journeying in many cultures, but they can be used to depict the psychological journey each of us experiences as our psyche, soul, and inner being experiences the same evolution repeatedly, but each time at an increasingly higher level. Profound, right?

The spiral also represents the cyclical nature of life. All life will attempt to expand in a similar pattern through the path of least resistance, which happens to (mathematically) take on the shape of a spiral, through the aforementioned golden ratio.

And last, the spiral is also a symbol of fertility, as life begins at the center, multiplying and expanding in cycles, such as those of the moon, the seasons, and birth/death.

How can you use spirals in your magickal practice?

I think there are so many options here, but most obviously, fertility spells or spells for bountiful harvests. Even if all you do is grow a few things in your home garden, you still want fertile soil and healthy plants, right?

You could also use a spiral pattern you trace during a ritual or spell for transformation. This would be particularly useful if you are experiencing some harsh and uncomfortable events in life through which you are meant to grow, but through which you need some guidance or simply strength. This may help with understanding that each level of the journey creates a higher ascent.

A spiral could also be used in your ritual or spell work with requests for balance. Because spirals are nature’s way of seeking a balanced growth, this would be an appropriate way to depict that.

And finally, I think spirals could be excellent for shadow work or exploring your shadow side. Using the spiral staircase concept in a descending perspective, journeying to the depths in order to address what may be holding you back, and then returning again is simply powerful.

A spell to call back your energy

What’s up, witches? It has been some time since I’ve written here, and I have no other excuse than I was in a funk. I mean, a deep, apathetic-state-of-mind kind of funk. I’m digging myself out of it, but, in doing so, I’ve been realizing that what started the whole thing was in no small part to me giving away my time, energy, power, and precious space in my head to people and places that didn’t deserve it, or weren’t reciprocating.

And so, I found it necessary to call back that energy. Necessary to call back that power. It wasn’t given freely by me, rather poached and stolen by others who had to intention of giving anything back, or even saying a simple thanks. Energy vampires are all around, and sometimes they end up being some of the people closest to us.

Being that it’s Samhain today/tomorrow, plus its a full moon, you just can’t get much better timing than that to take back what’s yours.

What you will need:

  • a yellow candle (a white candle can substitute for any other color in a pinch)
  • a lighter or matches
  • optional: paper and pencil/pen if you want to write out a list of names/jobs/places etc specifically

What you will do:

  1. If you’re writing out your list of people, places, or things from which you are calling back your energy, write that all down first. Have the list in front of you.
  2. Raise your energy however you prefer.
  3. Light the candle.
  4. Say out loud 3 times:

“I call back my energy and power from those who took it without my consent [here is where you can name specific names, or simply picture those individuals or groups in your mind]

I call back my energy and power from previous jobs or employers that did not acknowledge my contributions* 

I call back my energy and power from regret and guilt of my past decisions*

I sever all energetic ties to those people and places and will no longer let them access my energy and power. On them, I close the door.

I sever all energetic ties to those people and places and will no longer give them my energy power, no more. 

May my energy and power blow back to me on the currents of the air

May my energy and power grow back to me through the layers of the earth 

May my energy and power burn brightly in the flames of fire 

May my energy and power flow back to me on the waves and rains of water”

*these lines are optional, and examples of specific situations you might want to include if relevant, but leave them out if they aren’t relevant to you

5. As you say the spell out loud, create a strong vision in your mind of a high vibration white light flowing into your heart chakra and spreading throughout your body, humming with intensity and energy. Let this light fill you, cover you, and raise your vibrations until you feel full, as if you could not take on any more energy.

6. Once you have completed calling back your energy, snuff out the candle, and picture cutting all energetic ties to the people, places, or things you named or listed.

After the spell, consider taking a ritual bath, spending some time doing things for yourself, and/or just relaxing.

Happy Samhain!!

4 ways to honor RBG that actually make a difference

Well, shit. So that happened and its awful. A fearless warrior goddess nobody saw coming, Ruth Bader Ginsburg blazed trails for women. She set new bars and she busted through glass ceilings nobody before her had. May she rest in peace.

She embodied the fight for equality and inclusion. She fought to provide a voice for those who didn’t have one.

And she spent her last days doing the work that needed to be done. She loved our democracy. She fought for it. She saw the threat of the current administration for what it is: fascism thinly disguised as patriotism. And that is what is on the ballot in November. Fascism or freedom.

While the political scene quickly devolved into pointing fingers, name-calling across the aisle, and maneuvering to attempt to stack the court with another conservative-leaning judge, I spent some time thinking about how we, warrior goddesses in our own right, can honor her by carrying on her work and making a difference.

So I’ve put together this list of ways you can get involved or honor RBG and make a difference in our country at the same time. Sharing a post or meme is great, but it does literally nothing to change the outcome of the pending election or influence politicians. So please please please, in addition to posting online, take ACTUAL ACTION.

Send a Letter or Email to Your Representatives to Delay a Vote for Supreme Court Justice

Precedent was set in 2016 by Republican Mitch ‘I look like an evil fucking turtle’ McConnell to delay the appointment of a Supreme Court vacancy during an election year. And that is what we’re asking for right now.

You can use this super simple Resist Bot to automatically send emails on your behalf to your reps by texting ‘RBG’ to 50409. You will just be asked to provide your name, address and email so that the emails are sent to the correct representative. It takes literally 2 minutes of your time and is the least you can do, but still has an enormous impact. And then share that info with everyone you know.

Go Fucking Vote

Seriously. If you hate the way our country is heading straight into fascism, go vote. In 2016, so many people didn’t vote because they thought there was no way Trump could get elected. They thought he was a joke. They assumed everyone else would vote, so their one vote wouldn’t make a difference.

In the 2016 election, the highest demographic of voter turnout was people 65 years and older (71% of votes cast), compared to only 46% of votes cast by 18-29 year olds. Only 12% of votes cast were from non-Hispanic black voters compared to 73% of votes cast coming from non-Hispanic white voters.

Motherfucking old white boomers got their way in that election, and we have nobody to blame but ourselves if we don’t show up and vote. If you want your demographic to be represented, start with yourself.

Help Others Vote

So let’s say you did vote. And let’s say you’re planning to vote this year, too. What about your family, friends, neighbors, and anyone else in an under-represented demographic? Have you checked on them to make sure they’ve either requested their mail-in ballot or have reliable transportation to the polls on Tuesday, November 3rd 2020?

Can you help younger people in your area or in under-represented demographic groups register to vote? Join or support an organization like League of Women Voters or Let America Vote to level the playing field and help to fight voter suppression.

If you or someone you know is not yet registered to vote, or you think you or someone you know may have been removed from voting rolls in your or their precinct, you can go to https://www.vote.org/voter-registration-deadlines/ to see what the deadline is in your state to register to vote and what is required to register. Most states offer online registration.

Can you provide rides to disadvantaged people in your area?

Can you work with local officials to guarantee safe and no- or low-cost public transportation to the polls for people who wish to vote in person?

Can you help collect ballots from people who are homebound?

Can you think of other ways you can increase voter turnout in minority, women, and younger age groups to really turn the tides this election season? Get involved any way you can.

Inform Yourself About Gender Equality Cases

In case you’re like most people and just don’t have time to keep up with the latest in the fight for gender equality, you can take a look at past cases that went to the Supreme Court about gender equality issues by going here: https://civilrights.findlaw.com/discrimination/gender-discrimination-u-s-supreme-court-cases.html

You can also head over to the ACLU’s Women’s Rights page and take a look at past and present efforts, facts about gender equality and discrimination, and the pending cases and legislation on these topics.

I also highly encourage you to donate, even if its just a few dollars a month. If we all did that, it would have a huge impact on their efforts, and not only do they fight for gender equality, but they are huge proponents of racial equality, LGBTQ rights, human rights, and so many other critical issues that we need to preserve in our democratic system.

And then please share this post with anyone who needs this information. This year, more than ever, democracy and American freedoms are at stake and we have to get involved. Nobody has the luxury of just not getting involved anymore.

goddess spotlight: carmenta

Originally a Greek goddess named Nicostrata, Carmenta was renamed as such as a Roman goddess, where she ruled over childbirth and midwives. She is also invoked for contraceptive purposes for women who wish to avoid pregnancy. She is also a protector of mothers and children.

She is also the goddess of divination and prophecy, and her name comes from the Latin word carmen, which means spell or oracle.

She is also associated with poetry, and writing in general, as she is said to have been who altered 15 of the letters in the Greek alphabet to become the Latin alphabet. She also introduced poetry and music to the early peoples inhabiting what would later become modern-day Italy, and is even said to have laid some of the physical foundations of the city of Rome.

She is the mother of Evander by Hermes.

Also associated with bodies of water, as she was the primary or leader of the Camenae, who were water goddesses or nymphs who ruled over springs and wells, as well as larger bodies of water in and around Rome. Because of this association, she and the other three Camenae (Egeria, Porrima, Postverta), could also be invoked for healing.

Magickal Symbolism of the Iris

This flower is found in depictions and art dating back to as far back as people drew flowers. Renowned the world over for its beauty and sensuality, the iris features in many magickal or spiritual contexts, as well.

Irises are some of the first flowers to bloom in the spring, symbolizing transformation, renewal, and hope. They are brightly colored and showy, reminding us to show up for ourselves, and to let our own true colors shine.

And, irises are here to remind us of our own sensuality. Their leaves are harsh, sharp, and phallic, juxtaposed next to the soft, delicate, and sensual petals opening in layers, just like a vulva. In fact, it is common in many cultures, such as Japan, to drink tea of iris petals and bathe in a bath of iris blossoms to ensure virility and good health.

Irises were planted on the graves of women in Greece, so that their souls could be guided by the goddess Iris, who shuttled them between the physical world and the Elysian fields of the afterlife. The goddess Iris was the female equivalent of Hermes, with her own wings and caduceus. Her symbol was the rainbow, which was how she traveled between the Earth and Olympus.

Irises are also considered protective, especially against disease and evil spirits. The flower can be planted on the sides of your porch or front door to ward off spirits and misfortune, and to welcome prosperity and protection. The blossoms are also placed upon the roofs of homes in Japan to protect against evil spirits.

The iris is also the flower depicted in the French fleur de lis, and the three petals of the flower shown symbolize faith, wisdom, and valor.

Irises can be found in virtually every hue of the spectrum, and, depending on what color they are, can symbolize more specific things for you beyond just beauty, transformation, femininity, balance, hope, and power.

What can’t the iris be for you? …that’s probably a better question, because these powerful and unique flowers are excellent for all kinds of spiritual or magickal uses.

Here are just a few suggestions:

  • use a red iris in love spells, especially those involving passion or lust
  • use an orang iris for friendships, knowledge, and educational pursuits
  • use an yellow iris for creativity and inspiration
  • use a green iris for money, finance, and career spells
  • use a blue iris for communication or psychic dreams
  • use a purple iris for power, intuition, or connection to your higher self
  • use a black or white iris for protection
  • use a white iris for purification or protection
  • use any color iris for good health, beauty, lust/sexuality, and confidence

8 magickal uses of labradorite

Labradorite is often referred to as the ’empath’s stone’ as it can help to filter emotions and many empaths like me find that it aids them in this.

Labradorite and the Aura

Part of the reason why labradorite aids in filtering emotional energy is that it is an aura-balancing stone and has protective properties. If you are particularly sensitive to emotional (or psychic) energy, keep a piece of labradorite around and program it to filter out only that which you want to receive.

Labradorite and Chakras

This is an excellent crystal to work with the higher chakras (throat, third eye, and crown). It can help to develop and use psychic abilities and can be used while meditating or doing chakra opening exercises if you are trying to enhance or clarify any clairs (clairvoyance, clairsentience, etc) you possess.

Labradorite and Empaths

Labradorite is also known as the ’empath’s stone’ by some, because it has a number of properties that aid empaths in protection, filtering, and strengthening emotional reading. Often carried near or on the body or worn as jewelry, it can protect one’s aura from emotional or energetic turbulence or imbalances coming your way.

Labradorite and Grounding

I’ve written briefly before about the importance of centering and grounding, and it just can’t be overstated that every witch, energy worker, or person meditating/traveling the astral should master centering and grounding before attempting deeper states of consciousness or spiritual communication. Grounding acts as a connection to the physical for our spirit and astral body, and can help to protect us (or help us protect ourselves) from low or negative energetic states or entities. Labradorite can be used for grounding before any of those activities.

Labradorite and Personal Power

This crystal also helps us find and step into our personal power by encouraging or inspiring us to trust our own abilities and power. This is a critical component of any energy or magickal working. If you need a little boost of self-confidence, consider bringing some labradorite into your life!

Labradorite and Inspiration

If you’re feeling stuck or uninspired, labradorite is also an excellent crystal with which to work to open up new ideas, new avenues, new ways of thinking, and find new paths you hadn’t seen before. Consider keeping a piece on your desk or wearing labradorite jewelry when journaling, writing, being creative, or other activities you want to stimulate creativity.

Labradorite and Dreams

You can use labradorite to enhance or strengthen psychic dreams or connect with higher consciousness while dreaming. Place it next to your bed or even under your pillow to stimulate the third eye and crown chakras.

Labradorite and Negative Energy or Thoughts

Similar to its ability to bolster your self trust or personal power, labradorite is a powerful crystal for blocking negative energy or even negative thoughts. Its a great stone for keeping a positive attitude, keeping your personal energy field clear and positive, and finding strong light energy wherever you bring it.
