Writing affirmations is a way to increase your mental and magickal proficiency. For example, to overcome procrastination, write “I always complete each task in a timely manner.” Each night, before sleep, write the affirmation at least twice, dating each entry, until the goal has been reached. They can also be written neatly and hung where you will see them frequently, such as on your bathroom mirror or the refrigerator. Affirmations can increase your self-esteem too.
Within this ring the light remains, it burns through the night at my will.
This magick is clean, and none but clean shall bide here.
Fire kindle, Fire rise, rise and burn with your power bright.
[The author started using this after reading something similar in a Nora Roberts book.]
The circle is open but never broken. Nothing but love has come here And nothing but love has left here. In perfect love and perfect trust, So mote it be! Circle open but unbroken, Power down to the ground.
I am a Witch! I am at one with the Earth,
the Universe, and the Divine!
Let this day be free from strife and fear;
let only joy and love come near!
With blessings given and received,
I walk in peace in word and deed.
