The spells below are both a mixture of positive affirmations and daily blessing as well as actual Magick.
It is very important to remember when casting that intent is everything. While it may sound really pretty to have rhyme and meter, if you focus on the words and not the intent behind it, your casting is less likely to be successful. If you say what’s in your heart, whether it sounds pretty or not, it’s more likely to be successful because you have all of your intentions behind it.
Thank you for
Another chance to breathe
Another chance to rise
Another day to love
Another day to live
Blessed Be the food we eat
Blessed Be the grains that grew
Blessed Be the animals that gave
Thanks and Blessed Be to Mother Earth
Thank you for this day
For everything that came my way
May I sleep in peace
With dreams and rest
And tomorrow rise
To do my best
Thank you for
Another day to breathe
Another day to rise
Another day of love
Another day of life
As a drop of water is part of the ocean,
So am I part of the Earth,
She created me,
She nurtures me,
and she will receive me when I die.
In gratitude, I honor her at this time.
