Feeling down in the dumps and all out of love? Yeah, that happens sometimes. Whenever you're feeling like your magick is going nowhere, take a look at these five quotes from well-known Wiccans and Pagans.
These wise words will no doubt make you fall in love with magick all over again.
The first time I called myself a 'Witch' was the most magical moment of my life.
~ Margot Adler, Wiccan Priestess, Author, and Journalist
Consider the holiness of your hands. They are how you do your work on this earth; they are a microcosm of the hands of the Goddess, and can change the world as easily as hers can.
~ Dianne Sylvan, Author
The magic begins in you. Feel your own energy, and realize similar energy exists within the Earth, stones, plants, water, wind, fire, colors, and animals.
~ Scott Cunningham, Author
Most people know intuitively that when you fall in love the world is full of magic. What they don't know is that when you discover the universe is full of magic, you fall in love with the world.
~ Phyllis Currot, Wiccan Priestess, Author, and Lawyer
Every now and then, in our spiritual practice, it's normal to feel that your magick isn't quite working.
You may have cast spells that didn't deliver, or performed rituals with results below your expectations...
...But instead of seeing these as failures that will make you entirely give up on magick, consider a failed attempt as a fresh shot at getting better next time.
This simple turn in perspective can work wonders in whatever you're pursuing. You can't banish failure, but at least you can make new beginnings from those seemingly dead ends!
It helps if you're always reminded of this simple fact. You can recite the quotes as a mantra, or have them printed and framed.
One very simple way to remember it is to identify an appropriate symbol for it.
Like how we associate the heart symbol for love, you should choose a symbol that easily reminds you of your newfound will to succeed.
Wearing this symbol everyday feels like each morning is a brand new opportunity to correct any mistakes and do things better.
This necklace combines two very powerful symbols — the snake and the pentacle. The snake sees through the "shedding" of your old self to make way for the new...
...While the pentacle is a symbol for strength that will carry you through countless failures — and eventually, success.
Face it. You're smart and talented...but you always forget that you have what it takes to succeed.
When you have a daily reminder of what you can do, then there's no stopping you reaching your goals.
