All About Storms

Hi everyone. We have a risk of thunderstorms where I live today so, I thought we would talk about storms and how we can utilize them as Wiccans.

First thing to think about is that storms (especially thunderstorms) are a large surge of energy. This energy is definitely something you can use to your advantage. If you are making a sacred circle, for any reason really, you can channel that energy or invite that energy into your circle to help make whatever you’re doing stronger. Whether or not you channel or invite is totally up to you. Channeling is going to take more technique obviously. From what I understand, in order to channel the energy of the storm you are going to want to be good at meditating. If you read my posts you will know meditation is not my forte. I would probably go on to invite the storm energy into my circle instead. I would do this the same way that I would invite the elements, deities, or spirits into my circle and just hope they bless me with their presence.

If you are using the energy of the storm for any magickal workings you may want to know what type of storm is going to best match your intent. So here are a few different types of storms and what type of magick it goes best with.

  • Regular Rain Storms are good for purification, love, healing, friendships, beauty, youth, releasing negative energies, thoughts and emotions.
  • Heavy Wind Storms are a good time for mental spells, studies, travel, breaking addictions and habits. Sending messages to others, both living and dead. And wishes.
  • Snow Storms are for purification, healing matters of the heart, transformational magick, change, protection, and renewal.
  • Fire Storms. This is when the searing heat of the Sun causes a blaze of fire to the land, and the winds sweep it across. It happens on a yearly basis here in California. Protection, courage, power, banishment, and commanding/oath spells are done during this time. Very dangerous though, one would need to be close to the flaming storm.
  • Storms during an Eclipse. These storms are rare, and because of such are extremely powerful. I have been told that these times of great power can be channeled to cure diseases, and banish unwanted energies, as well as successful exorcisms, if you believe in that.

Something to keep in mind is you will likely best connect with the type of storm that you are a sign of. So if you are a fire sign you will likely best connect with fire storms or even a lightning storm. If you are an air sign you would best connect with a wind storm. If you are a water sign you would best connect with a rainstorm or snow storm. If you are an earth sign you would probably be best for a lightning storm (as the lightning storm touches the ground and is in the sky at essentially the same time). If you are familiar with the element chaos (it does not replace one of the main four but rather can go with it. Chaos is an element that I connect with, along with fire) then you can probably connect with any storm, as storms are chaos in and of themselves.

However, that’s all for today! Have you ever used storm energy in your magickal workings or anything like that? Let me know down below along with any other thoughts or questions you have.

Energy Boosting Spells

Hi everyone! I don’t know about you but I am just exhausted all the time. If you could see me right now you’d see I’m falling asleep as I write this, as I just got off a long day at work. So I thought what would be a good thing to write about today? A few good spells to give you that little boost of energy you need without consuming absurd amounts of coffee or those deathly energy drinks. These spells are one’s I got from the internet and I will leave the links to them down below. For the most part they will be the same as they will originally written but I may adjust just a little bit to suit my preferences better.

The first spell is called Energy boost and the link to the original post is here

Try saying this spell to ask the element of fire for the gift of its power and vitality:

“Fire bright and fire strong,
Give me energy all day long.
With your warm and gentle fire,
Keep me going when I tire.”

I think this is a really nice an simple spells. I think there are numerous ways you could go about casting this. You could probably cast it just by saying it in a sacred circle. You could also say this while holding and focusing on a beverage (tea, coffee, water, etc) and infuse the drink with your intent. I think you could also just say this at any point of the day when you’re feeling sleepy. It’s totally up to you.

The next spell didn’t really have a name but you can find it here.

The thought process behind this spell was the author believes if one is tired it means your connection to the elements are unbalanced and this should rebalance them causing you to feel more energized.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED: a quiet space, calming incense and a candle 

Sit comfortably in the centre of the room, and bring your focus to your breathing.

After a few minutes, harmonise your elements. Summon Earth from the north to connect to your energy. Earth governs your relationship to the material world and keeps you grounded.

Call the element of air – your intellect, thinking and communication skills – from the east.

Next, order fire – your courage, strength and dynamism – from the south, and water – your emotions, intuition and healing balance – from the west.

Finally, focus on your connection to the divine: request the universal energy source/your deities to pour white light into your body, from the top of your head all the way through to your feet.

Hopefully this spell helps you too!

A few other great things you can do to help combat fatigue is reiki and meditation. You could also make a jar spell to help energize you. If you’d like to see a spell like that let me know down below and I will create one for you all! However depending on why you’re tired you may need to take a totally different route. If your issue is not getting a good amount of sleep in the first place, you may want to focus on sleeping spells instead of energy boosting spells.

Thank you for checking out today’s post! I hope you enjoyed it. I’ve been thinking about making a post about my plants that I have and how to care for them; you should let me know if you’d be interested in seeing a post about that, along with any other energy boosting spells you have, any thoughts, and/or questions you have.
