There have been so many wonderful entries to this week’s Witchy Weekly Challenge! For my own entry, I decided I wanted to draw in motivational and creative energies
Here is the spell I designed!
Motivation and Creativity Spell
For this spell, I wanted to spark the passion of creation! It’s been a while since I had the energy to paint, so I decided to make a pentagram using my art supplies.
- The inner star and borders are made with tubes of paint and paintbrushes
- Candles are placed at each of the 5 points
- Previous works of art were arranged along the edges, to fuel future creations
- Basil, an herb used in attraction magick, is included
- There are 2 coins, one from the US and one from Poland, symbolizing past and present for me.
- A token of the Helm of Awe- a Norse symbol to attract might and strength. It is also a form of compass, my personal symbol.
- My favorite incense (the blend used at Ginkakuji/the Silver Pavilion in Kyoto, Japan)
The intention was to draw on creative energies from past projects and instill that energy here and now!
After the ritual was set up, I focused my intent, gathered my energies and desire, and began
I usually prefer to hold my intent inside, but for this spell, I found some words actually came quite easily:
(read each line while lighting one candle)
I have all of the tools I need.
Now I have the motivation.
I have made nice things before-
And I will make nice things once again.
I have creativity within me…
(Light the incense in the center)
…And now I will create.
So mote it be!
After I said the words, I held my intent for a moment, said my thank you’s, and blew out the candles. I started to set up my a piece of paper to begin painting… but no pictures were coming to mind
Instead of pictures and colors, words started flowing. Just like the chant, which I hardly ever make my own- my minds started to flow with sentances, lines, snippets of poetry… I had to push my paper aside and run over to my laptop!
While I didn’t finish any one piece, I had a great brainstorming session on a whole bunch of possible topics. For work, poetry, maybe little pieces of stories- it was pretty fun and the time flew by! I’ll have to take some time and go through everything.
I had just figured this spell would lead me to do painting , but looking back… all I had really been asking for was creativity and motivation. Although I used art supplies in the setup, I never really specified where the energy would be directed to!
Has this ever happened to any of you? Where your spell worked, but the outcome wasn’t what you expected?
For me, this turned out to be a successful spell and a fun writing time- but also an important reminder to make my intentions very clear, especially when put into words!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, full of bounty and abundance! Blessed Be
