Dear Friends,

Whenever you do any magickal work you are taking energy from your body and putting it out into the universe. There’s got to be a place that the energy comes from, so this article is full of tips on how to increase energy for your magickal work. When you are completely energized through these activities, you’ll find that your spells and rituals are much more effective.

Raising your energy is a bit like climbing up a ladder toward another plane of existence. There are many different ways to raise energy. You can sing. You can dance. You can chant. And you can use visualization to raise your energy as well. Personally, I’ve found that raising your energy through physical movement is more effective, but visualizations can be powerful depending on what kind of energy you are looking to build.

You can use the following visualization to build up energy. Close your eyes and imagine your feet sink into the ground. You are becoming one with the roots in the ground and are growing deeper into Gaia, the mother earth. Her energies are all around you, rising up like the sap through your feet and your legs. The energy fills your body and envelops each and every one of your cells. Feel yourself becoming one with Gaia.

Feel yourself becoming a great strong tree and stand up with your arms stretched out. Your arms will feel like branches reaching up to Father Sky. You feel your leaves drink in the Sun. You can feel the energy coming down into your body and feeling you more and more with each breath. Continue to draw the energy in and send it out into your limbs. You are at one with everything that surrounds you and you feel life pulsing through you.

This type of exercise is perfect to use before a ritual or powerful spellwork. In addition to using a visualization like this, you can also use mantras. Mantras are simple chants that use the names of the Gods and Goddesses to build up energy. You simply need to pick the deity that is most appropriate for your upcoming magickal work. For example, you could chant “He-ca-te” or “Ven-us.” You can add power to the mantra by adding drums, rattles, tambourines and other items that will help build energy.

A zen like trance is another way to build up energy. You can do this by finding a quiet place to sit that is dark. The darkness will help your concentration. Sit down in a comfortable place and the hold out your arms so that they face one another. Focus on the space between your hands and clear your mind of all thought. Imagine the energy pouring out of the universe and into your body. It comes through your dominant hand and then circulating in your body, and then back out into the universe through your non-dominant hand.

Yet another way to raise energy is to charge a beverage with power and then drink it. Use the following method to create power tea. Brew your favorite tea and then hold your dominant hand over the top of the tea. Move your hand in a clockwise direction and say the following three times:

I am the tool you are the fire,
Fill this cup with all I desire.

Once you’re done, drink down the tea and then feel yourself empowered.

If you feel like you need a lot of energy or just want to take your energy building powers to the next level, use the following spell. You’ll need a bright red or orange candle, some sandalwood incense, a glass of water and a bowl of sea salt. Cast your circle as you normally would and then sit in front of your candle and repeat the following:

Give me energy to happily complete the task I have been given to do.
I will feel better for having done it. The completion of the task will be my reward.

Sprinkle the sea salt around the candle and say the following:

Give me strength, O sacred Earth.

Pass your hand near the candle and say the following:

Give me strength O sacred Fire.

Pass your hand through the smoke of the incense and say the following:

Give me strength, O sacred Air.

Drink the water down and say the following:

Give me strength O sacred Water.

Now immediately move on to a ritual spell that you need energy from.

Finally, I’d like to share a little “craft” project that you that will help you build energy. You need a small jar to hold several tablespoons of herbs. You need to fill the jar with the following herbs:

Cinnamon (which is for dreams)
Nutmeg (an herb for good luck)
Allspice (for healing)
Ginger (for lunar magick)
Basil (for protection)
Fennel seeds (spiritual healing)
Garlic (spiritual purification)
Marjoram (protection)
Sage (spiritual purification)
Cloves (protection)
Mustard seed (protection)

Stir spices together three times and then close the jar. Whenever you need an extra burst of energy, take a sniff from the jar and feel the power of the herbs enter you.

Brightest Blessings,
