Creativity

This is a simple candle meditation ritual to enhance creativity.

  • 1 orange candle (creativity, enthusiasm)
  • 1 yellow candle (creativity, imagination, and inspiration)
  • Amethyst, chrysocolla, black onyx, and turquoise
  • White Sage, Palo Santo, or Florida water (cleanse and clear)

Creativity is more than just writing, painting, or music It can be about coming up with a great innovative concept for a business method, or something as mundane as redecorating your apartment. This ritual is flexible so feel free to adjust wording as you fit.

Cleanse and clear your space using White Sage, Palo Santo, or Florida water.

Light your altar candles and the incense. Anoint your candles using appropriate oils for creativity. Place the orange and yellow candles side by side and place a piece of black onyx behind the orange candle and the piece of turquoise in front of it.

With your yellow candle, place the Chrysocolla behind the candle, and the amethyst in the front. Light the candles, and think about the particular reason why you need creativity, you might wish to say aloud something along the lines as simple as:

The Universe is filled with endless ideas of creativity. I attract them to me like a magnet. My mind and dreams are open to these ideas. They flow in like a stream of clear water.

Sitting in silence breathe in the sign of Leo and place it into your heart center. Allow the color of Gold, radiating like the sun to surround your entire body and fill you with courage, strength, and fire. Recognize the power of yourself as an individual. A powerful Leo moon mantra for this meditation to remember is:

” My will is strong and my calling is to express and illuminate.”

After the meditation, it might be helpful to consider, or to journal your answers to the following questions:

  • What is it that I have been given to express?
  • How can I do that with an open and generous heart?

Note:

While this meditation is great for when there is a New or Full Moon in Leo, it is also appropriate when the Sun is in Leo, or if your birth sign is Leo, or you have a special affinity for Leo or Lions.

Here is a spell that calls upon Ilmatar for increased creativity and spiritual growth:

The Finnish-Ugrian goddess Ilmatar was the virgin daughter of Air. she had immense creative powers, and was known as Water Mother, Daughter of Nature, and Sky Mother. Legends say that she created the world and gave birth to the first great hero, Vainamoinen. This son was a great sorcerer and magician. He invented the zither and was such a superb musician that his playing tamed wild animals. More about Ilmatar can be found here: Ilmatar Finnish Goddess of Creation

Decorate your sacred space with red eggs and flowers. Burn cinnamon incense and a pale green candle. Say:

Teacher of magick and wisdom,
Enlighten me.
Bestower of knowledge,
Open the door to ritual meaning.
Peace and contentment, I ask of you.

Sit in quiet meditation. Feel yourself riding in a boat on a gentle lake. Beside you is the goddess Ilmatar. Listen carefully to what she says. Talk with her as long as you wish. when you come back say:

Healing, knowledge, mental powers,
All come from your creativity.
Eloquence and self-control
I ask now that you give to me.
Guidance I need and inspiration.
Teachers send with motives true.
I desire to learn, to expand my mind.
For these gifts, Ilmatar, I do thank you.

Goal: To come up with new ideas.

Optional extras: A yellow candle (to represent intellect); a cauldron or empty bowl (to represent the open possibilities)

Note: The best time to cast is early morning, just as the sun is rising. Stand in front of the empty bowl, light the candle, and hold out your empty hands in front of you. Try to visualize yourself as being as open and empty as the bowl, waiting to be filled with ideas and inspiration.

The incantation:

Focus, focus, hocus pocus
Open up my mind and heart
Focus, focus, hocus pocus
Let the thinking process start
Focus, focus, hocus pocus
Send ideas new and old
Focus, focus, hocus pocus
Planning subtle or actions bold
Focus, focus, hocus pocus
Show the path to resolution
Focus, focus, hocus pocus
Grant to me the best solution.

After: Write down any ideas that come to you.

Being A Witch

We should educate people that ‘Witch’ is not evil but ancient and positive. The first time I called myself a ‘Witch’ was the most magical moment of my life.
