Sometimes people around us - perhaps a critical relative, a spiteful ex-lover or a thoughtless colleague - can damage our self-esteem. We look at media ideals of loveliness and feel we are far from the image of perfection created by a society that worships youth. But if we can only believe in ourselves and love ourselves, hey presto, we radiate our own unique beauty and others are drawn to us, because of this powerful but indefinable personal magnetism. This spell is designed to boost that self-belief. * Place a rose quartz or amethyst crystal in the water to strengthen self-love and approval.
JUPITER -Roman King of the Gods, Jupiter is related to and identified with the Greek Zeus, but is not identical to Him. Jupiter is above all a God of law and government, justice and wisdom. To the Romans Jupiter embodied all of the qualities of a good father, including sobriety and impartiality. Jupiter is associated with prosperity, expansion, and growth, self-confidence and optimism. Jupiter's consort was Juno (originally the Etruscan Moon Goddess Uni), and Their daughter the Goddess Minerva, also Etruscan in origin and identified with the Greek Athena. Long after the fall of Rome, Jupiter remained an important Deity in Alchemical, Astrological, and Hermetic systems.
Healing the body is only one small part of health and so you should experiment and note any uses you find for your infused waters. Take some colour-charged water to work or to a difficult social event in a mineral water bottle. In my on-going struggle with my weight, I have found that orange water in which a carnelian has been soaked is wonderful for restoring balance and self-esteem and so preventing food binges.
Situated on the pathway between Tiphareth and Hod this card represents temptation. The pathway between the pillar of balance and the pillar of form, the power of beauty becoming glory. A passive transformation of beauty into a tangible reality. It is a card of the conjunction of opposite principles, of the negative aspects of lust meeting the positive aspects of love. It concerns the reconciliation of consciousness with the unconscious. The collective conscious has a shadowy side which contains all unrealized aspects of mankind. It embodies the energy of the inner self and should the soul give way to the temptation it risks becoming a megalomaniac with an over inflated sense of its own self worth, power and wisdom. If the challenge is met and recognized then the forces of darkness may be transformed into the power of light. The task at this stage is to comprehend and integrate the deepest urges of nature into the new life for the better and not allow the dark qualities to over take us.
It is a card of tension and ambivalence, advancement and evolution. It represents the choice between two ways of life, between traditional authority and the desire for independent action. It is a time of development of the personality where it becomes entirely an entity of its own separate form and origin. A time to choose between independence and self-reliance or dependency on established authority. Consider how this pathway differs from its opposite to fully understand how the spheres on the feminine pillars affect the workings of this pathway.
Therapeutic movements that have developed in the twentieth century. Indeed, 20 years ago it was argued that membership of the Church of Satan performed 'magical therapy' that encouraged self-confidence m young men who were too shy or inhibited to enjoy social gatherings or approach the opposite sex (Moody, 1974). The self-development aspect of Crowley's philosophy is strong in modem satamsm but receives different emphases in the different groups, being more sensual and aesthetic in the Church of Satan and more intellectual in the Temple of Set. Other groups can be identified according to the special emphases they place on different readings of the works of Crowley or LaVey.
Advertising agencies are predominantly responsible for these. You can't turn on the television or read a magazine without being told you are not whole without one product or the next. The hair and diet industries just love to generate a poor self-image. That way they can sell you products to fix what might be an entirely contrived problem. If you listen long enough, you will start to believe everyone is as superficial as the advertisement implies. Will they also return your self-esteem The world has pounded us so long that it's no wonder we manifest self-doubt. It must be the way someone wants it to be. After all, just about the entire corporate world wants to keep the ball rolling right along. Even the companies who claim they are concerned with our sanity do everything they can to injure our mental health. Just in case you have a tiny sense of self-reliance left, the pharmaceutical companies are at hand to rip it from your soul. Maybe you are not...
When I get through with you we'll see who's the better witch. Then hang up. After a couple of tunes of this the wife stopped calling. Whether she believed in her witchcraft or not, or whether she was just working on Myrna's guilt, Myrna's new found self-confidence, and the fact that she let her know that I can do anything to you that you can do to me by witchcraft ended the wife's fun .
Coral is an organic gem, usually pink, red or orange, and is known as the protector of children. Coral has been a children's stone from the time of the Ancient Greeks when Plato wrote that it should be hung around children's necks to prevent them falling and to cure colic, and rubbed on the gums to help painless teething. It is good for all children's fears and against threat to their person or self-esteem. It is also protective for adolescent girls, pregnant women and new mothers, and invokes kindness and gentleness in others.
Neopagans believe that ethics and morality should be based upon joy, love, self-esteem, mutual respect, the avoidance of actual harm to others and ourselves. Most Neopagans believe in some variant of the principle of karma, and affirm that the results of their actions will always return to them, sooner or later. Many Wiccans go so far as to believe that their karmic return will be three times as strong, for good or ill, as what their actions unleashed.
Sunday, the day of the Sun, is for spells for personal fulfilment and ambition, power and success, for increasing the flow of the life force, asserting or strengthening your identity and individuality, for innovation of all kinds and new beginnings. It is potent also for energy, joy, health prosperity, spiritual awareness, self-confidence, for bringing wealth and prosperity if there is poverty and failure, for breaking a run of bad luck, and for all matters concerning fathers.

All crystals contain power as well as protective qualities and cleansing is itself empowering. However, if you are being subjected to stress or harassment of any kind, you might like to charge your crystal, so that when you touch or look at it, you will be enclosed in its radiance and stimulate your own innate self-protective power. Your charged crystal acts as an amplifier for your own inner radiance and self-confidence and will repel any hostility.
Orange is the colour of the Sun, of fertility - both physical and mental - and of creativity with words. Growth, self-esteem, confidence and abundance of all kinds are related to orange, as are independence and asserting your identity if it is under threat or being eroded by the demands or unfair criticism of others. Orange also relates to careers involving people and the arts.
Experiment, using the list on page 153, to find which crystals offer balanced energies for you you may well find some work better than others in particular situations. For example, my friend Jenny, a 40-year-old sales adviser, found that gentle green jade in her power hand and malachite, a rich green and black stone good for strengthening teeth and bones, in her receptive hand, made her feel protected when her aggressive area manager visited her. Soft rose quartz in her power hand and a glowing reddish orange carnelian in her receptive hand helped her to avoid the loss of self-esteem she always felt when she went home to see her critical mother.
The concept of worship has gotten a bad rap among many Wiccans, especially those who have come to Wicca from a background of fundamentalism. For many Wiccans, the notion of worship has become confused with the concepts of self-abnegation, groveling, humility at the expense of self-respect, and fear. Praise has become similarly disparaged many Wiccans seem to think that the Gods are not needing of our praise, and therefore we should not give it. We tell ourselves that the Gods are above such petty ego-boosting, and therefore our praise is both unnecessary and unwanted.
There are certain distinct advantages to skyclad ritual however, and it can be very good to experience it at least once. Most people have many issues about their bodies -working skyclad helps you to become familiar with your body, and to accept it as it is. Clothing and fashion impose many false and unrealistic ideas on our relationship with our bodies. By accepting our bodies as they are, we can break free of these socially imposed ideas. Also many people use clothing as a mask, placing their physical self esteem in external items of dress. But external items are purely illusory and not always under our own control by accepting our bodies as they are we can put our self esteem where it truly belongs -within.
So I came to Diospolis i.e., Egyptian Thebes , Egypt's most ancient city and the location of many temples, and settled there. For it had learned and aged chief priests who were expert in manifold fields of knowledge. 13. As time went on and my friendship with them grew stronger, I inquired whether any magical power was preserved, but I had to condemn most of them for making claims reminiscent of my own premature enthusiasm. 14. One man alone did not disappoint me. He inspired trust through his self-confidence and the measure of his years. He promised to show me for myself the power of lecanomancy. 15. I urged him to come for a walk with me in the deserted parts of the city, without revealing my motives. 16. So we went off to a most peaceful grove, where I immediately fell to the ground and, weeping, grabbed hold of the chief priest's feet. 17. He was taken aback by this unexpected sight and asked why I was doing it. I told him that he had the power of life and death over me. For I...
And vice of this sphere are easily understood but the illusion may be difficult to understand. The illusion of identification is best defined by identifying yourself by what you do, not what you are. When asked the question who are you What are the first three things that come to mind The first thing is usually your name but what after that. Do you think about your job, your religion, and your political affiliations What if those things just suddenly went away how would you identify yourself then Only if you have a sense of self-worth can you survive such things and self-worth can be found by giving over ourselves to the Gods and experiencing the pleasures they gain through us.

If you wanted courage in love, you would use a Mars hour on a Friday. If you needed to communicate your feelings, but found it difficult, you could add the energies of a Mercury hour to a Friday love spell. If you wanted a banishing spell for shedding excess weight, you could use the last days of the waning moon cycle when it is in the sky during the morning before it sets. The banishing lunar energies should take away the compulsion to binge that is keeping you from a healthy lifestyle and if you use them at the hour of Venus, this would increase your inner beauty and help to bring you to a state of self-love. Remember that the beginning of the hour is always the most potent.
