Rose Ariadne's Chitchcraft Blog

Dear Friends,

Recently I had a discussion with a fellow follower of the craft that was expressing concern at the fact that she was not having any success with any type of magick she was trying. Even simple meditation seemed to be out of her reach, and she could not determine what the cause was. She had tried basic grounding rituals, various forms of meditation and spells to help with her concentration, but nothing was working for her.

I recalled her mentioning a few months prior that she had not been feeling well and needed to schedule an appointment with her healer. I asked what had come of that appointment, and what the healer had said. Imagine my shock when my friend informed me that she had never “found the time” to visit with her physician, even though months had gone by. She was still feeling ill, and had days of lethargy that were so severe she could barely get out of bed. What’s even more amazing, is that of all the spells and rituals she had tried, not a single one was for a healing or a cleansing!

People seem to take their health for granted. If they are rarely ill, when they do start to feel poorly they may often ignore the signs their body is giving them assuming that it will just “work itself out.” While this certainly can happen, signs of illness are a signal from our body that something is not right. These signs may very well go away, but the problem that caused the sign in the first place may still be lying in wait. Sadly, some people do not recognize the importance of being healthy.

Being in good health provides more than just longevity. In the case of my friend, it has seriously caused damage to her ability to perform simple spells and rituals. When you are ill, even the basic tasks of divining, such as reading Tarot, can become difficult and prove to be unsuccessful and inaccurate.

When you are not in good health, all of your bodies functions slow in their performance. Energies become dulled, which can affect your daily tasks including any magick you attempt. If left unchecked, it can even become very difficult to perform the cleansing and healing spells that your body and mind needs, which make the situation even worse.

Having said that, I feel it is very important for me to stress that when you begin to feel poorly, a cleansing or healing spell does not, and should not take the place of seeking medical attention from your physician or certified healer. The Gods have gifted these people with the talent of healing, and that is what they are they for. Your health is also a gift, and should be treated as such. Dying yourself medical treatment or making excuses for not seeking such treatment is a huge injustice to your body, and a dishonor to the Gods that have granted you the gift of life and health.

I wanted to take this opportunity and share this experience with my friend with all of you, to stress the importance of good health. While we witches can perform many amazing tasks, we should not be so egotistical that we believe we do not need to seek treatment from others. Remember, pride comes before the fall. Do not be so proud that you believe you can heal yourself, or that you are too powerful to require healing, or you could be setting yourself for a large and nasty fall.

Honor your body and your health as you honor the Earth and the Creators that have granted us with all that we have. If you are ill or have been feeling poorly, I urge you to find the time and make an appointment with your healer and physician. There are few things more important than your health, so doesn’t it deserve your complete attention and dedication?

Brightest Blessings,

    You are right about health is very important in keeping up with the energy to do any form of magick. I hope your friend go see the doctor. It is not right that she suffering herself like that. I must go and see the doctor also, because i haven’t been in years, but I feel well. I will get a chance to see the doctor anyway no matter how well i feel just in case. Thank you for this very important information I need. The success of magick depends of our health state of mind and balance with the gods and goddesses.

    How true, How true, is it, specially when we know that we can do something to feel better, it’s good to make us remember, because at first, health should be our own personnal priority and an essential one to be able to fully live our life.

    I’ve always found my health impacts my ability to practice. Unfortunately my ability to keep myself healthy has been taken from me. I’m only working five hours a month. I still have health insurance through COBRA, but I only have enough money left over to pay for two of my medicines. After months of coming up empty job wise, I start training for a new career tomorrow.
