There’s a spell I’ve been planning that may seem a big too dramatic for the problem it’s trying to resolve, but hear me out on this one. I’ve been dealing with a mounting creative blockage for a year or two now, and it’s gotten to the point that I can barely write and can’t draw anything. It even seems to have obstructed me from doing things I enjoy and taking inspiration from them for the things I create!
So, tomorrow morning (as Saturdays correspond to spells for removing blockages or obstacles), I have a spell planned that I’ve been preparing for about a week! Ever since last Friday and through the full moon on Wednesday, I’ve been charging up my sodalite, orange calcite, white opal, and obsidian arrowhead with energy from the sun, moon, and stars, along with a black, a white, an orange, and a blue candle. These candles are going to be arranged to the north, east, south, and west of my altar, respective to their hues, with their crystals of corresponding colors set in front of them. Then, in the spaces between each one, I’ll be laying some of my artist’s tools: a writing pencil, a drawing pencil, a paintbrush, and an implement for shaping clay.
I also plan on possibly making sigils for each candle, and I’m definitely going to try using tarot cards as an additional medium. I’ll also load up the spell with incantations, prayers, and even some mantras! As for why I’m going this far, well… Other than magick, creative expression of all kinds are kind of the pursuits I live for the most. And this creative block I’ve been experiencing has been getting so bad and going on for so long that I think I need to use my other most beloved pursuit, magick, to get my energies moving again!
Also, if you’re wondering about the art supplies, I’ve had some ideas recently for how to use everyday items as components to spells! I think it would be great if you’re a witch living on a budget and want to work with some ideas that are outside of the box. It’s an idea I originally found while researching vodou, so I’ll probably make a post on it sometime after I finish my humdinger of a spell that inspired this post!
Hopefully removing this creative blockage will also help me to start posting more. Until then, may the Tree of Life shelter you all!
