Overcome Your Fear Spell
Finding myself in the Southern Hemisphere four years ago was a challenge to understand how the North-South orientation changed and how the Down Under influences the dynamics of the Season’s Wheel.
As a portal to the dark half of the year, Samhain is a time when the veil is thin between the worlds of the living and the dead. It calls us to gaze bravely into the darkness and to make friends with all the mystery, wisdom, and power it contains. Except it’s not on the Halloween’s day, like in the Northern Hemisphere, but in Australia it’s in May, and this year is not on the 1st, as usual, but on the 5th of May.
This Samhain spell works with the unique energy that is present during the Samhain season. Choose a spell that speaks to you, and perform it between now and May 31st. Here is one on how to overcome a fear, but I will post few more in the next few days.
This is a strong time for candle magick, scrying, divination to forecast for the year ahead (not sure I want to do this right now in the middle of the pandemic LOL), and connecting with the ancestors. This is also a good time to cast for finding a mentor, guide or benefactor, as older, wiser energies can be trapped at Samhain.
Overcome Your Fear
A scary mask to represent your fear (find one that gives you a similar feeling to your fear or emotionally/symbolically resonates with your fear in some way – you don’t have to logically understand your choice as long as it intuitively feels right)
A bouquet of chrysanthemums, any colour (mums assist us in gazing bravely into the darkness)
4 white candles (plus lighter or matches, as you prefer)
Place the white candles around yourself at the four compass points to create a small circle, approximately 1.5 m in diameter. Light the Eastern candle first, and then light the other three in counter-clockwise order (so North, West, and South respectively). Keep in mind that here the South is the colder area, so the North represents the Fire. Scatter the mums outside the circle while moving in a counter-clockwise direction. Call on the Goddess and God, or if you prefer, call on the Divine Presence in a way that speaks for you. Speak words from your heart about what your fear is, how it has negatively affected your life, and why you are ready to overcome that fear now. Ask for the boldness to look bravely into the dark sides of your psyche, and ask for assistance in transforming your fear into courage and strength.
When you feel ready, put on the mask. Feel powerful and invincible. Instead of being afraid, feel fearsome and frightening. Be the embodiment of strength.
Face East and say:
I am no longer fearful, but fearsome. I throw off the burden of fear and I am now purged and purified by the element of air.
Face North and say:
I am no longer fearful, but fearsome. I throw off the burden of fear and I am now purged and purified by the element of fire.
Face West and say:
I am no longer fearful, but fearsome. I throw off the burden of fear and I am now purged and purified by the element of water.
Face South and say:
I am no longer fearful, but fearsome. I throw off the burden of fear and I am now purged and purified by the element of earth.
Face East again and say:
I am free, I am powerful, I am courageous, I am strong. Thank you, Goddess. Thank you, God. Thank you, Fire, Air, Earth, Water elements. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Blessed be. And so it is.
Extinguish the candles. Put on fun music and dance in front of the mirror in your mask to make yourself laugh and break up any lingering traces of fear.
