In my last post, I asked you to dig below the surface to discover the heart of the desire you wish to manifest at Samhain. An example I gave was you might think you want a new job, but in reality, you want a promotion, or more responsibility or more money.
Let’s suppose that you have refined your desire to a promotion at your current place of employment. Now, you can create an affirmation, a few lines to describe your goal. Write it as a positive statement and write it in the present tense. For example, you might write, “I am so happy and grateful for my job promotion to manager. Every day my skills at my new job are improving, earning me financial rewards and acknowledgement. So mote it be.” Instead of writing, “I hope to get out of my old job and into something better in the future.”
You can write your affirmation in rhyme if you like or just as a simple sentence or two, as above. Fine-tune it until you feel it aptly expresses your goal. Keep it simple so you can recite it daily from memory until the results are manifest. Remember to express gratitude as part of your affirmation.
The next step to create your own spell is to examine the qualities you need to attract in order to manifest this outcome. Will you need courage? Stamina? Help from friends? Financial aid to take courses? Think about this for a while and make notes on paper or in your Book of Shadows. In my next post, I’ll tell you how to select herbes, stones, candles and flowers that best correspond to these qualities.
