Blessings

Simple touches for everyday energy

Whether you can believe you can do a thing or believe you can’t – you are right. -Henry Ford

The mechanism of a blessing is very easy:

  • Think of a white light so powerful that it encompasses your mind, body and spirit.
  • Move the white light into a mental picture of a person, place or things.
  • In your mind allow the white light to burst through the object.
  • Intone words of blessings or touch the person, place or things.
  • Seal the blessing with a hand motion of your choice while pronouncing aloud “It is done.”

Here are some examples of some simple blessings:

Thirteen Powers of the Witch
Thirteen powers do the Witches claim
their right of lineage by
(say name of your patron god or goddess here)‘s name.
Tie a knot and say the words
or a hand on a head – the blessing is conferred.
A witch can give success in love
curse or bless though
(Patron god/dess).
Speak to beasts and spirits alike
command the weather; cast out a blight.
Read the heavens and stars of the night
divine the future and give good advice.
Conjure treasure and bring fortune to bear
heal the sick and kill despair.

This poem can be said as a blessing when giving something to another, and can be included in any spell by adding:
This is my birthright to have and to share
blessings upon you,
(the person’s name),
may the spirits be fair

Bedtime Blessing
Close your eyes and breathe deeply three or four times until you feel relaxed and at peace. Imagine that your entire body is filled with brilliant white light. If you like, hold your hands over your heart, and say:
In the still of the night
while the world around me sleeps
may the angels smile upon me
and the Lady bring me peace.
Blessings upon
(List those whom you would like to remember).
I know You will care for them
and bring them what they need.
Instill in me great harmony
in though and word and deed.
So mote it be.

Gift Blessing
Hold the object in your hands. Take several deep breaths, inhaling and exhaling slowly. Visualize the object glowing with white light. Connect your mind to Spirit and try to think of nothing else. Imagine the gift capturing the pure perfection of the universe. Then say:
Perfect love and perfect peace
the world will dance and one.
I dream the wish to make it real
the magic now is done.

Seal your work by drawing an equal armed cross (+) in the air above the object. You can also empower birthday, get well, and sympathy cards in this same manner.

Meal Blessing
Hold your hands over the food, and say each line below three times. This can be worked into a fun blessing for the while family if chanted in a round.
The table contains the Earth
and thus becomes the Mother.
We share her bounty in this hour
and bless and love each other.
So mote it be.

Personal Journal/Book Blessing
These words herein are mine alone fashioned deep inside my bones
each picture, thought and quote you see
are all reflections of what is me/
Beware the urge to take this book
or read it in some private nook
because its magic isn’t blind
and I will know you’ve touched what’s mine.
