Your 2016 in Runes

Runes are an ancient alphabet with spiritual symbols, used both in divination and spells. In this reading for the year for you, I have used the popular Futhark runes for a simple message and an easy spell for each one of the zodiac signs.

ariesARIES mannaz Mannaz

The rune Mannaz is a sign representing humanity or mankind. For 2016 its message for Aries is to connect with others, reach out and build relationships. You will find more meaning and purpose in the way you help others. You will be at more and more peace with the universe as the year goes by. New connections will be formed and old will be strengthed. Society, family and community all will be a greater support to you.

Draw the symbol of this rune and keep it upright in a picture album with photos of your family, friends and people you care about to keep the bonds strong.

taurusTAURUSlaguz revLaguz Reversed

The rune laguz is a symbol of depth and hidden powers. When reversed it symbolises a year when you are to emerge into the surface, be out there in the forefront and let the world know you. You will find much more success in conventional and practical work where you directly interact with the outer world, rather than staying in a shell. This is no year to keep your relationship or career moves a secret. Make things official.

To balance the inner and outer world, keep the laguz rune under your pillow to help you deepen your spiritual insights through dreams.

gemGEMINI eiwazEihwaz

Eihwaz is considered the rune of resurrection. This year you are back and making a whole new start. If you had abandoned a dream or stopped yourself from hoping, look up again as you have another chance now. Your hidden and past life talents will be reused again in your life. A dark phase is over and a brighter one might take its place provided you stay optmistic. Rest assured you are going to be more powerful than you thought you were.

Write any unfulfilled wishes or intentions on a piece of paper and draw this rune on it to allow them another chance of manifesting.

cancerCANCER othalo Othala

The Othala rune is a sign of wealth, property or home. You might receive inheritence or a generosity from ancestors. Or perhaps a property investment will lead to more wealth. This rune also shows that 2016 is  good year for your family and for being surrounded by people who love you. You will be firmly established in your roots, grounded and secure. Yet, you will feel safe to grow steadily as per your plans.

Draw this symbol on an image of your dream home to increase your chances of acquiring it.

leoLEO ansuz Ansuz

The rune Ansuz is a symbol of divine intervention. You are receiving a lot of heavenly blessings this year. Most of your problems are being sorted through the higher force. You are also receiving much success and abundance from the universe through your faith in your inner self. Meditation and inner work will go a long way to attune you with the higher powers that be. Be open and receptive as a lot of good is coming your way.

Keep this rune close to you for connecting with the higher guides and masters and allowing their guidance at all times.

virgoVIRGO kenazrev Kenaz reversed

Kenaz is a rune that represents awareness and light. Its reversal indicates that you might feel more solitary this year, withdrawn and self focused. You will be more interested in inner than outer knowledge. You might feel like distancing yourself from things that no longer enrich you, such as negative news or meaningless entertainment. While others might find you secretive you know you have nothing to hide except what you must.

Write your most personal goals and secrets on paper and lock them in a box with the Kenaz reversed on top to prevent the wrong eyes from seeing them.

libraLIBRAthurisazThurisaz

The rune Thurisaz means thorn which makes it a sign that problems or obstacles will be met with positivity. You shall find that your intuition is guiding you to understand what is in your way, whether outer or inner obstacles are on your path. Also remember that there are inner reasons for all outer issues, and cleanse your chakras and aura more often this year to keep all the good coming into your life.

Draw this rune on a paper on which are written all the challenges you are facing, then burn it in a black candle to visualise that all obstacles have been banished away.

scorpioSCORPIO wyrd Wyrd

The blank rune or Wyrd is a symbol of the unexpected. Its pure magick when anything and everything can happen this year. You have the power and its upto you how to apply it. If you are wise you will use this opportunity to enhance peace and prosperity, love and light. Unwise and you might end up hurting yourself or others. This is the year when you realize its better to be careful what you wish for, for it will come true.

Take a blank paper and meditate, then write a story of this year for you making it as positive as possible, as if all those things have happened already.

saggiSAGITTARIUS berkano Berkano

The rune Berkano is a symbol of nourishment, representing the mother goddess and her love. You will find that this year you develop a better relationship with the feminine side of yourself and with your female relatives, friends and partners. You will be helped and supported by others most of this year. Its time to nourish and care for yourself. Love and kindness will be shared generously, be receptive.

Place this runic symbol on your altar or spiritual area for connecting with the divine feminine this year.

capriCAPRICORN yeraJera

The Jera rune represents the fulfillment of a rewarding year, and promises that you will be receive the result of all you have put in in the previous years. Its a time to be grateful and to be generous with yourself. You might feel lucky and unaware of how you came to deserve all that you receive this year. However karma works in mysterious ways and it is always in balance. The good you did is returning your way so be unafraid to do more good.

Place this runic symbol on your financial documents to reap rich rewards and returns this year.

aquariusAQUARIUS wunjomerk Wunjo merkstave

The rune Wunjo is a sign of joy and happiness, yet its merkstave or dark aspect is a warning not to be too selfish or self-centered. You are surely having a lot of good in your life and the more grateful you are for it the better it is going to be this year. Stay away from excesses of any kind. Overindulgence in anything can be bad. Get rid of any negative habits or addictions and care for yourself and others. This year will surely be a good year for shadow work and self improvement if you focus so.

pisces PISCES nauthizNauthiz reversed

The Nauthiz rune is a symbol of necessity or hardships and when reversed it is a sign that the worst is behind you. You are having this year a chance of letting go of everything that was dysfunctional and getting rid of all fears. You wil start making progress ahead of all hurdles. You can cancel out or negate all negativity this year and be more dynamic and progressive once you are through with reversing the challenges.

Write all the problems or obstacles on a piece of paper with black ink and draw a large nauthiz reversed on it to indicate that you have blocked or cancelled their effect.

Hope you enjoy the magick of your runes this year!

Blessed 2016.

A spell for your every resolution for a Happy New Year

Some people make empty resolutions for the New Year.
Some cast spells and achieve them all…

Here is how to get what you want in this new year.

Resolution 1: Get the perfect body (top of the list for most of you I’m sure)
Spell: Breathe in, imagine yourself looking fabulous, fit, healthy, see it clearly in your mind…breathe out and then say the affirmation, “i have the most perfect body now”. Repeat until it feels good all over.
This spell is better when you light a white male or female figure candle to match your gender for a few minutes daily as you bathe with rock salt or sea salt and perform this affirmation and visualisation. See the difference for yourself. Feel good about your new beautiful body.
Its best if you start collecting a few clothes of the size you wish to achieve. It will push you to getting there. Soon you will fit into them.
Most importantly stop saying negative things abut your body. Believe it is now transforming for the better..it always works. Somehow your lifestyle will adjust to your belief and help you get the perfect body. Remember you are a soul in a body. Your body is your creation.

Resolution 2: Get on top of your career (always important)
Spell: Stand straight, breathe in, stretch your body with your arms up towards the sky. Imagine this lovely blue light coming from the universe filling you up and say, “I am on top of my career now, I am doing what I love and doing it well, I am successful and content, I deserve, accept and create this. So be it.” Feel your body absorbing the light in every cell. Then relax and get back to daily life (happily).
This spell works better if you carry a turqoise stone with you for 21 days or more while you perform this affirmation and visualisation everyday. Enjoy working. Love it.

Resolution 3: Make more money (who would mind that)
Spell: Take three real coins of any denomination and place them between your palms. Feel them getting warm and energised as you say to them, “Multiply wealth now for me and everyone around, may everyone prosper including me”. Now toss the coins in any place of nature not knowing where they may go, knowing that wealth will come to you as well. This spell helps you spread abundance as you feel the free flow of money into your life by releasing your fears regarding money.
This spell works better if you wear or carry a money charm or talisman of your choice. Do not worry about money. Give and receive freely. Money is your tool.

Resolution 4: Happily ever after (relationship of your dreams)
Spell: Light a pink candle. Take a new and beautiful rose quartz stone and feel the light of the candle filling it up for a few minutes. Then kiss the stone and say, “Thank you. My romantic life is as lovely and as joyful as can be, forever and ever.” Keep the stone beneath your pillow each night and carry or wear it during day and keep interacting with the stone as suggested above. Watch happy romantic movies. Read fairy tales. Believe them to be true for you, no matter what people say. Love is real.

Resolution 5: Be in a place of your choice (travel or relocate)
Take your passport and place a copy of the tarot card “The World” in it. Then take a picture of the place of your choice and as you gaze into it…see yourself in it….living, enjoying, travelling. Have fun. You might even dream of this at night. You will be there soon. Trust. The world is your playground.

These spells are written for you and you can pass on this link to share with others.
Remember whatever you think, say, feel, want or behave as…is likely to be part of your life.

If you are unhappy, angry, frustrated, upset about something…you will get more of that.
If you are happy, grateful, positive about something…you will receive more of that.

Thats what spells are all about..feeling, thinking, saying, doing, manifesting and loving positive things.

Have a witchy new year. Happy 2014!

Transform all Tensions into Intentions.

DAILY PRACTICE FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS
 

Daily meditation is a great way to clear the mind and also to get positive energy flowing inside us.

 
“Just for today – do not worry.” This is the first Reiki Principle (Reiki is a simple system of energy work that can be learnt by any beginner). 
 
Stress and strain is harmful to both mind and body. At the same time it can block our manifestation. So try not to get worried or stressed up. Do not use negative words and do not think negative and harmful thoughts. Always be in happy state.If people are being negative – do not let them affect you. If some disturbance or stress is around – just do not absorb it. Take positive steps instead.
 
Remind yourself daily that you are feeling good. DO NOT SAY negative things in present tense such as – I am worried, I am feeling bad, I don’t have this or that, This person or that person is harming me…..etc etc. 
 
Put them all behind you in past. You WERE feeling like this and facing negativity but NOW it is all changing. You are changing. So everything will follow.
 
You can Transform all Tensions into Intentions.
You will see that all goals and targets will be achieved with the power of inner self.
 
Just relax and make crystal clear intentions
Step 1: Imagine you are in a bubble or cocoon of white light from all around. It will protect you.
 
Step 2: With eyes closed preferably (but can be done with eyes open also with practice) – Breathe in deeply and breathe out (try breathing in through the nose and breathing out via the mouth) in a relaxed and natural way without straining or thinking. Repeat several times trying to keep mind free of thoughts. Do this for a few minutes any time of the day.

 
Step 3: After you open eyes say positive affirmations (positive and clear statements) such as the following as many times a day as you can:
– I am now relaxed and positive
– All my targets and goals are achieved effortlessly
– It is easy for me to manifest success
– Today is a great day and wonderful achievements are mine
– I am grateful for all the positive energy in my life
– Everyone and everything is now positive and bright
– I am happy, healthy and I feel great today
So be it!
 
Ending sentences with Sobeit makes it come alive.
 
THIS ABOVE TECHNIQUE REALLY WORKS….. ALWAYS!
Therefore: Remember to wish for only positive things that Harm None as it is a simple law of nature that what we give is what we get in return. No-one is above this law. Nature is the universe, the god, the goddess. Let us be in balance with nature and its laws. 
 
Always give and receive goodness.
 
Blessed Be!

From Prayer to Spells: Witchcraft is for the Enlightened

At Global Wicca we are always trying to find ways in which we can integrate the philosophies of various religions into one single Enlightened perspective.

All over the world people repeat the following Christian prayer to God – addressed as our Father:

Our Father who Art in Heaven, Hallowed Be Thy Name
Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done, On Earth as is in Heaven
Give us this Day our Daily Bread,
And Forgive us our Trespasses, As we forgive those who Trespass against us
And Lead us not into Temptation, but Deliver us from Evil
For Thine is the Kingdom and The Power and The Glory
For Ever and Ever, Amen!

The above is a prayer directed to what ordinarily will be assumed as an outside force – a higher force that rules the world address as a ‘father’ God who has created all of us and earth.

However the period of ignorance and rote repetition of prayers is now over. Today people are awakening to see their inner God or Goddess. Many of us today understand that the ‘Father God’ we are referring to is no outer force. There is no ‘man in the sky controlling everything”.

God is nothing but the inner self also called the Highest Self or Nature. It is the inner self therefore that we are always praying to and not some external entity. I prefer to call this our Divine Self. Our Divine Self manifests all over the universe, as Nature or the Goddess. This Divine Self manifests to perfection when invoked – eg. whenever we ‘pray’ or rather cast spells for the benefit of nature and self, thereby making the world a more beautiful place. After all a spell is nothing but a prayer – except it is enlightened – made in the knowledge and awareness that we are manifesting our life.

So here is a version of the above Prayer – which is more of a Spell or Affirmation that will appeal to all of us who are enlightened and self-aware:

I hereby Invoke my Divine Self.
I Align myself with the Will of my Inner Divine to Manifest Divinity on Earth.
I Right Now Channel the Abundance of my Inner Divine.
I Forgive Myself and All Others Now through the Power of my Inner Divine Self.
My Divine Self only Manifests the Good of All and Harms None.
My Divine Self Manifests in All of Nature Now.
My Divine Self is Infinitely Powerful and Glorious.
So Be It!

So, remember – every time you pray to any God or Goddess or higher force, you are actually invoking the inner power within you.

Meditate and raise your inner consciousness. Be aware of the power you have inside. Be aware of your inner Divinity and beauty. Start performing spells now – and remember they are only to be used for the good of all concerned and to harm none – else you are not being your Divine self. Spells made without Divine and positive intent are worthless and un-magical. After all the word God or Goddess stands for Good.

Blessed Be
