Modern Tips For The Modern Witch
Rain’s a good way to wash away negativity – whenever it’s drizzling out, go stand out there and just relax. Let the drops carry your worries away.
Baby Witch Tip
You can literally brush negative people right out of your hair! Every morning take the time to sit down and focus, starting with the ends, and brush your hair. Imagine yourself releasing negative energy with every knot you untangle. When you get to the top you will have soft hair but also you will be refreshed and ready to repel negative people all day.
“When life gives you lemons” witch bottle
For those that aren’t adamant on making super-protective and super-”go fuck yourself, attacker” witch bottles, but instead want to show their opponents the middle finger and use the incoming energy for your own needs, or simply want to be pacifistic but protected at the same time.
Basically “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade”, in spell form.
a container, preferably glass – a bottle or a jar, doesn’t have to have cork/lid – to hold things
a piece of coffee filter – for “filtering”, plus coffee is a banishing reagent to make sure you’re protected from this leaking anything bad
a piece of sponge or something that can “soak up” things, like cotton wool or hydrogel – to soak up and hold down the bad energies instead of letting them flow through and affect you negatively
laurel leaves (bay leaves) – for protection and wishing, luck
a piece of a sturdy weed, preferably dried so it doesn’t mold, and I mean something that can’t be killed, the worst nightmare of a gardener you can get a hold of (I would go for Parthenocissus quinquefolia I guess, that thing raided my brother’s garden like hell, it’s friggin everywhere) – for “changing” and making bad into good, as plants use dirt to build themselves, in a way; it needs to be sturdy and resilient against pollution so that the negative energies won’t be a problem for your spell, and won’t destroy it over time
orange peels, preferably dried (can supply with other orange-themed ingredient, ike orange essential oil or incense) – for energy and positivity
vanilla, preferably vanilla sugar (mix vanilla and sugar, wait a couple weeks for it to infuse) – for happiness, peace and sweeting things up
glitter, preferably gold – to give it some “oomph” of prosperity and sunshine 😀
optional: your personal taglock, ex. hair, nails etc., as you’d add to a normal witch bottle
You can decorate the bottle with some sigils for “transformation” or “change” or “Control”.
Can swap orange for lemon easily, and if you aim at something else than general positivity, just swap orange and vanilla for something more in tune with your desired target energies (like if you want to change incomind energies into loving/caring energy, I’d say rose petals and rose quartz chips would be nice in there).
I’m not very good at making rituals and I make it up as I go, so just cast your circles and say your prayers/incantations, invoke your deities etc. etc. then throw all the ingredients in, however you like, you can make a pretty arrangement or just throw it in randomly.
The intent in this spell needs not to be anything negative – you’re not casting a curse, you’re not casting in anger at your attackers. It’s not a protection spell per say, so you’re not trying to separate yourself from the attacks, either. Be accepting. You are open towards others, but will not let anything negative in. You will be welcoming, but will not let anyone harm you. You are in control, and this is your property.
When done, place the container in a sunny spot, preferably in a window or other “entry point” of your property. I would suggest it goes outside of your wards to be the first thing the incoming energies meet (and if it fails or leaks or otherwise isn’t very efficient at its job, there are still wards protecting you), but that’s up to you and your paradigm of warding and spellcasting.
