Spell to Generate Motivation.
This is a quick spell to be performed whenever you are having a hard
time concentrating or trying to muster energy and enthusiasm to do
something that needs to be done.
In this terse layout, the ACE OF WANDS depicts pure energy, especially directed toward worthwhile projects. THE MAGICIAN represents you, focusing your attention, applying yourself, using your energy to create and achieve, realizing your full potential. The third card can vary, depending on what it is that you need motivation to start of complete. You could use the 8 OF PENTACLES, which represents work. However, you could substitute other Tarot cards in this position. For example, for help, for help in concentrating on studies, use THE HIGH PRIESTESS; to get motivated to start exercising, use STRENGTH; to break a bad habit, use TEMPERANCE; to enter a conflict try the 7 OF WANDS; to summon initiative to leave a bad situation, use the 8 OF CUPS, or the 6 OF SWORDS. There are many possibilities.
The tarot cards are the only materials you need to perform this spell,
since you would most likely want to perform it when there is an
urgency to get into or on with whatever it is that needs to be done.
Otherwise, consider using a minimum of accessories – perhaps just a single candle. If you do have time to enhance the layout with out accessories, you may use candles, flowers, crystals and gemstones, and cloth to lay the cards upon, in shades or combinations of shades or red for energy, orange for unity of mind and body, yellow for intellect, blue for concentration, green for adaptability, purple for ambition, or white for harmony of all elements.
To carry out the casting of this spell you may use it in combination with your usual ritual or just proceed by laying out the cards and doing the following
meditation, visualization and incantation.
First set the ACE OF WANDS in place; then stand up if you are not already standing. Stretch every limb, wiggle your fingers and toes, do a few head and neck rolls, and spend a few moments trying to feel your Life Force as it flows through your body.
Next, set THE MAGICIAN in place beside the ACE. Picture yourself as
the magician in the card. Meditate on the thought that you are a magician with the ability to summon your inner energies to achieve any goal.
Finally, lay down the 8 OF PENTACLES or whichever card you have chosen to represent what you want to achieve or concentrate on. Spend a few moments thinking about what you want to do, and how you want to do it.
After you have spent sufficient time meditation on the cards and visualizations, carefully, and with as much feeling as you can recite the following incantation. (If you are not a witch, you may want to call it an affirmation).
“I summon energy and will, /for great is the power within me!
My life force flows strong/and quickens every cell of my body, and every atom of my being. /I am energized and refreshed.
My mind is relaxed and calm. /I see clearly and deeply, and ideas flow easily. /My will is all-powerful.
My body, mind, and spirit are working together/to help me accomplish what I will.
I immerse myself in my work. /I accomplish my goals.
And I am eager to do more and more!”
After saying the affirmation/incantation, close your eyes, relax, and put everything out of your mind, including the work that you have to do. Now, count backwards from 200 to 0. As you count, you will begin to feel an impulse to stop counting, get up and immediately immerse yourself in whatever project awaits. However, for best effect, resist these impulses and finish the counting. Then you will be able to get up and get on with your work, feeling enthusiastic and refreshed.
You may consider the spell closed at this point, or you may close in your customary way.
Spell to Enhance Positive Magic or the Learning Thereof.
Make an empowered altar mat. Start with seven purple strips of cloth and thirteen white strips, all of which should be about 1-1 1/2 inches wide and 7 inches long. Weave the strips together in an over-under pattern, the thirteen going left to right and the seven-moving top to bottom. While you work, sing a magical song or add a chant to store power within the mat. One example is: Weave it well, all the while I weave my spell. Wrought with magic that I impart, weave the power with my art.” The finished mat can become part of your altar or make an effective covering for one of your magical tools.
As a side note, you can make these mats more durable by starting with a base material of coloured construction paper and by laminating the finished product. In this form, this spell is an excellent project for children ages six through nine. Laminating materials are available at most photocopying stores.
Energizing mystical, supernatural, or metaphysical functions and rites.
For increasing positive magic, use waxing to full moons. Month of November. Moon in Capricorn. Cast on Tuesday.
Thought for the day
To look confidently upon life, to accept the laws of nature as laws of love, not with sighs of resignation, but with cheerfulness; to dare to search and question, and at the same time hold fast to faith and peace these are the qualities that make for happiness.
