What to Do
If you find you are starting to lose momentum with your motivation or simply want a boost to keep you moving forward, this is a spell for you!
Charge up you candle, crystal and resin individually with your focus of motivation – you can write yourself an affirmation to repeat while you do this, visualise yourself charging through the things you need to get done and achieving your goals at the end of the year, plus feel what that will feel like when it happens. Then once everything is charged, set your candle up on your altar/sacred space. Place your crystal at the base of your candle and lay your feather in front of the candle where you can see it. Then set your Dragonsblood resin burning on your charcoal disk nearby.
**As an alternative to using the Red Jasper crystal, you could make a motivation charm bag instead. For this you need a circle of red or orange material, your crystal, some Dragonsblood resin, Peppermint and Cinnamon. Write the invocation on a piece of paper and fold it to add into your charm bag too. Place all ingredients in the center of your piece of material, pull up the edges and tie around the top with ribbon, finishing with three knots to keep it closed. Place your charm bag at the base of your candle instead of the crystal.
Close your eyes and take in the smell of the Dragonsblood and allow that to help connect you to your magickal self and feel centred.
Then when you feel ready, light your candle and say:
“I humbly call to thee, profound and great Divine energy
(you could call on a specific deity here instead if you wished, like Goddess Brigid or Sekhmet whose fiery energy can help with motivation),
Come be by my side,
Grant me wisdom, be my guide.
Fill me with motivation and energy.
Bless my actions, words and deeds.
With thanks and harm to none, so mote it be.”
Allow your candle to burn all the way out, with your crystal, or charm bag, charging beside the candle. While it is burning down is a good time to Moon gaze and whisper your dreams and goals to the universe plus do some divination if you are wanting some further guidance to the next step towards your dreams. When the candle is finished, gaze at any left over candle wax for any messages for you – allow your higher self to guide you as to what any symbols or images you see might mean. Then any left over wax can be disposed of and you can carry your crystal or charm bag with you across the coming days/weeks when you need that boost of motivation. xx
