Candle Magic: A Spell for Boosting Witchy Powers

Here's a simple little spell, created by Jane Mortimer, for boosting the witchy verve during a debilitating heatwave. All it needs is a candle, some incense, and a quiet spot indoors or out, maybe with some gentle music. 

Start with a few deep breaths in and out to get centred. Then light the incense and say the following rhyme, which is a cross between an incantation and an affirmation. It goes:
"I might be feeling blocked and rather weak;
my thoughts all blurred and weary to the bone,
but soon I'll find the strength and power I seek,
as every block becomes a stepping stone."
It can be repeated however many times it feels necessary, then finished off with a few more deep breaths followed by a drink and a snack. 

When I did the spell, I liked the image of stepping stones, so I set out a row of water-smoothed pebbles and repeated the rhyme as a lit a candle on top of each stone in turn.

I love the idea of representing actual stepping stones, lighting the way as you go.
