Powerful Positive Affirmations
Subsequently, when the clergy of Boston and Charleston had kept a day of prayer with fasting, the children improved until they became perfectly well. But in an unlucky moment Mr. Mather determined to entertain his congregation with a sermon on these Memorable Providences, and the study of this again affected the girl. Formerly, in the worst of her attacks, she had been most dutiful and respectful to Cotton Mather, but now her whole Carriage to me was with a Sauciness which I am not us'd anywhere to be treated withal. She would knock at my Study door, affirming that some one below would be glad to see me, tho' there was none that ask'd for me. And when I chid her for telling what was false, her Answer was that Mrs. Mather is always glad to see you Once when lying in a fit, as he that was praying was alluding to the Words of the Canaanitess, and saying, Lord, have mercy on a Daughter vext with a Devil, there came a big, but low,
This does not mean you must believe a spell will work for that spell to cause change. The science of subliminal messages shows us that we can affect the minds of people who are completely unaware of the process. Likewise, the magick of scent and other stimuli can be used to affect our minds and the minds of those on which we cast our spells. The phenomenon of subliminal messages can be called stupid spells work for stupid people. Chances are the green candle will work if you are gullible enough to believe it will, but very few people are that stupid. Instead of blindly believing in the power of the green wax, most people purchase the candle because they think it won't hurt. Such a driving force is entirely too impotent to cause the manifestation of intent. This is why most spells do not work. Speaking as the owner of one of the largest pagan shops in the Midwest, I have to let you in on a little secret. With only the exception of the few customers who are mostly brain dead, Knowledge...
Affirmation for today I am relaxed and happy With who I am, not What anyone wants me to be Once you have had your bath dress in white or purple (do not dress in black ) and by the light of the white candle meditate on today's affirmation. Think about the words and how you may relate to them. Burn the lavender oil in the oil burner. Let the room fill with the soothing fragrant of lavender and have a nap. Burn lots of lavender oil and musk incense and just relax and try to be stress free. In the late afternoon you may like to go for a walk along the beach or through the park. Affirmation for today I have the ability to make anything, the god and goddess love my creations Affirmation for today I am one with the universe And it's enchanting energies Which surround it
Light a white candle to honor your body -your physical expression of your part of Divinity. Anoint your body with essential oil chosen for the pleasure of its scent. Repeat the wise words of Lady Krystel as an affirmation of your body's holiness and remember -You are God experiencing Herself.
Weakness of mercy leads to the strength of victory. This card symbolizes new beginnings and completion of earlier stages. It is traditionally a card of perfection and is represented by a wheel or circle. Here the second half of the quest begins. Having travelled the inner world of dreams and visions as the Hermit the seeker is ready to move forward with new wisdom. It is symbolic of psychic wholeness and inner order and indicates that a major stage has been reached. As the soul casts off its old bonds its sacrifice is rewarded by the rise of its unconscious, as the wheel turns full circle. It brings peace of mind, resolution of guilt and affirmation of the order of the universe.
These were attitudes held by the overwhelming majority of Europeans during the nineteenth century but during that century they came to be accompanied by two others, which were essentially languages of disaffected intellectuals and which posed challenges to the first two. One was that of Theosophy, and embodied the principle that behind all the more sophisticated systems of religious belief recorded in the world lay an original body of common wisdom, more ancient than and superior to all. This, ran the argument of Theosophists, could now be recovered, by a process of comparative study enhanced by renewed contact with superhuman intelligences. The other radical language was one which was explicidy or implicidy hostile to Christianity. It characterized the religions of pagan Greece and Rome as mherendy superior, at once more in touch with the natural world and with human nature joyous, libera dornst and life-affirming. This was to be the discourse of modern pagan witchcraft. Such...
All magicall arts confuted by an argument concerning Nero what Cornelius Agrippa and Carolus Gallus have left written
Least Nero should espie the cousening devises thereof. Which when Nero conceived, and sawe the same, and all the residue of that art to be vaine, lieng and ridiculous, having onelie shadowes of truth, and that their arts were onelie veneficall he prohibited the same utterlie, and made good and strong lawes against the use and the practisers thereof as Plinie and others doo report. It is marvell that anie man can be so much abused, as to suppose that sathan may be commanded, compelled, or tied by the power of man as though the divell would yeeld to man, beyond nature that will not yeeid to God his creator, according to the rules of nature. And in so much as there be (as they confesse) good angels as well as bad I would know whie they call up the angels of hell, and not call downe the angels of heaven. But this they answer (as Agrippa saith de vanitat. scient. .) Good angels (forsooth) doo hardlie appeare, and the other are readie at hand. Here I may not omit to tell you how Cor....
In each case the excess energy returns to the Mother Goddess when you release it. She will recycle it, putting it to good use elsewhere. Some people like to say an affirmation when they release such as I clear and release all excess energy. or I release this energy to the Goddess, to be used elsewhere. This sets a clear intent, and can sometimes help to focus the process. It is not necessary to say the affirmation out loud.
The power of positive thinking is one thing, but with witchcraft you use something other than your conscious mind. I believe positive thinking works to a certain degree, but how do you keep your thinking positive No matter how strong you are, your subconscious is going to trip you up. You can't sustain a positive thought without thinking something negative is going to happen. What you must do is perform a certain ritual that reinforces the positive thought when it starts to slip. That's witchcraft. That's when you start using objects to do the work of your mind. An object that has no connection with your purpose, but in which you believe, can be used. For example, if you believe in a certain cup, and if you put it beside the phone with the thought that your lover will call because of it, that's more than positive thinking. When your lover does telephone, that's witchcraft.
It is typically illegal to use subliminal messages to increase sales, but it is legal to use the same delivery method to prevent shoplifting. Far be it for me (a shop owner) to encourage shoplifting, but I have to wonder who decided this makes sense. As theft is an issue of ethics and shopping is an issue of commerce, I wonder who decided it was okay to bombard our senses with someone else's code of ethics. The very people who are trying to instill ethics are conducting themselves in a manner that many would consider unethical. What's next, subliminal messages that tell us to be fruitful and multiply
E are not bound by traditions from other times and other cultures, and owe no allegiance to any person or power greater than the Divinity manifest through our own being. As American Witches, we welcome and respect all life-affirming teachings and traditions, and seek to learn from all and to share our learning. We do not wish to open ourselves to the destruction of Wicca by those on self-serving power trips, or to philosophies and practices contradictory to these principles. In seeking to exclude those whose ways are contradictory to ours, we do not want to deny participation with us to any who are sincerely interested in our knowledge and beliefs, regardless of race, color, sex, age, national or cultural origins, or sexual preference. 9. We acknowledge that it is the affirmation and fulfillment of life, in a continuation of evolution and development of consciousness that gives meaning to the Universe we know, and to our personal role within it.
Saith that shee did deny God, and in affirmation thereof shee pricked her finger with a thorne, whence issued bloud, which the Cat presently licked, and the said goodwife (sic) Weed named the Cat Tissy. And she further saith, that she killed the said Dog and Cat about a yeare since.-Joan Wallis of Keiston said that the Devil came to her and shee asked what his name was, and he said his name was Blackeman, and asked her if she were poore, and she said I then he told her he would send one Grissell and Greedigut to her, that shall do any thing for her. And after Blackman was departed from her, within three or four dayes, Grissell and Greedigut came to her, in the shapes of dogges with great brisles of hogges haire upon their backs.' The accounts given by John Winnick, Ellen Shepheard, and Anne Desborough suggest that they are confused amplifications of the ritual to be observed in taking a familiar, the ritual being clearly given in the confession of Francis Moore when she was presented...
Affirmations must be made clearly and the mind should be inflamed with desire. With this frenzy of will you may do as much with simple tools as with the most complete set. But good and especially ancient tools have their own aura. They do help to bring about that reverential spirit, the desire to learn and develop your powers. For this reason witches ever try to obtain tools from sorcerers, who being skilled men make good tools and consecrate them well, giving them mighty power. But a great witch's tools also gain much power and you should ever strive to make any tools you manufacture of the finest materials you can obtain, to the end that they may absorb your power the more easily. And of course if you may inherit or obtain another witch's tools, power will flow from them.
Once in motion, there's no return, so you must be very brave. You may be able to alter the conclusion a bit, but things will never remain the same they are no longer what they were. That's another difference between witchcraft and positive thinking. Positive thinking doesn't put you in danger. In witchcraft you make a complete commitment. It's like jumping off a building. You can't go halfway down and then say Whoa. You must keep going.
And as he spake these words, he caught hir by the haire, and drew hir about, beating hir sometimes with his hands, sometimes with his heeles, and sometimes with the hooke so long, and wounded hir so sore, that he left hir a dieng. At the noise whereof manie people came running unto them, and seeing what was doone, they apprehended the yoong man, and thrust him into a vile prison. S. Vincent by vertue of his holines understanding all this matter, caused the bodie that seemed dead to be brought unto him, and thereupon (according to his maner) he laid his hand upon hir, who immediatlie revived, and he called one of his chaplines to heare hir confession. But they that were present said to the man of God, that it were altogether in vaine so to doo, for that she had beene from hir nativitie dumbe, and could neither heare nor understand the priest, neither could in words confesse hir sinnes. Notwithstanding, S. Vincent bad the priest heare hir confession, affirming that she should verie...
Imagine a ball of white light all around the paper, as clear and bright as possible. Hold the paper as long as possible, then place it in the burning dish and let it burn until it is gone. Use a stick or a knife to lift it in the bowl so that it doesn't lay on just one side and prevent that side from burning. The speed and thoroughness with which the paper burns shall be an omen to you of how long it will take for the thing to come to you. If any part of the paper doesn't' burn, take that piece and repeating the affirmation over it, burn it again.
Witchcraft can be a comforting modus operandi. In spell casting, the ritual is performed in a forceful attempt to alter a moment in time, by creating a vibration within the environment that in turn will set into motion a series of events leading ultimately to the desired conclusion. Sorcery goes a giant step beyond mere positive thinking by generating situations demanding positive action, commitment.
Another variation on this theme occurred in the Midwest. A Wiccan group began hosting Esbats on their land in the countryside. Soon after news of their religious meetings spread, a staunch churchgoer decided that these persons were Satanists. People interviewed by local newspapers informed reporters that they were keeping their children inside on the nights of the Full Moon so that they wouldn't be killed by the Witches. Slanderous allegations spread through the rural community for several weeks, all directed against a nature-loving, life-affirming group that was legally recognized as a religious organization.
Advanced atomic-age witches use sympathetic magic, dolls, wax images, candles and other implements merely as focal points of concentration including palms, cards, astrology and numerology, but they do not believe that the objects themselves have power but rather act as catalysts for releasing their own. This same principle is found in many religions, psychotherapies, hypnotism and in Positive Thinking. The Power of Thought The Power of the Mind the full understanding and use of Suggestion.
Upon hearing these affirmations, many medics of the official science will cry out But where are those internal bodies What do we do in order to identify and perceive them We only accept what is analyzed in the laboratory and what is submited to the studies of the systems which we have developed. In other words, the limit of their learning capacity is in relation with the apparatuses which they have perfected. One must not forget that the 'luminaries' (intellectuals) from the epoch of Pasteur were mocking him when he was affirming his famous theories, which have made him a celebrity. Did this not also occur even far worse with Copernicus and Galileo, when they became victims of what was believed to be opposed to the known or revealed truth Were not the 'wise' ones those who covered Columbus with slanders, because he was announcing the existence of a new world beyond the Cove of Finisterre, which then was believed to be the end of the earth
Floorwashes are used to ceremonial wash the floor of a Temple, home, or place of business, for the purpose of imparting the qualities of the herb involved to that location -to give protection, draw prosperity, or stimulate social discourse, for example. Sometimes it can also be used on walls, or to anoint doorways, windows, etc. Use of a floorwash should be preceded by an appropriate prayer and or affirmation, and by concentrating upon your purpose while applying it.
