I completely new to this, and don't follow Wicca, or any particular path that involves spells. But, I'm intrigued by spell casting, and cast my first spell last week. I have someone I work with (a few someones, really) who bring about a lot of heavy, negative energy into the workplace. My boss is the main person responsible for bringing negative energy into work, but after casting the spell last week, things have been better. Today, he was great. But, it goes up and down like this, he's never consistent, and it's really causing a lot of stress for my team and me.
The spell that I chose was very simple, I just wrote his name down on a piece of paper, burned it, and I invoked God's name, as I meditated on banishing his negativity from my life. Once the plate was filled with ashes, I took it out to a nearby dumpster, as part of the spell recommended getting rid of the plate and ashes, and to not place it in your garbage can inside the house.
I felt empowered and really never looked deeply at my intentions, even when I've prayed to God, I've always been rather passive. Spells require intention, it seems. A deep focus on what one truly desires, and making sure that the desires are not harming another, or even ourselves.
Since my boss' behavior and a few coworkers' are inconsistent, should I perform another banishing spell? How often do you perform the same spells, for the same issues? I have seen change even since last week, so I'm thinking that the spell was helpful.
It really all depends. You may have to keep repeating the spell to rid negative energy from your team. It certainly is not easy, considering how easy it is for people to accumulate negative energy. You can't fully change the person's characteristics. More common things like stress, anxiety and depression, along with other possible scearios that may cause them to accumulate that negative energy. I don't exactly know where they accumulated all this negative energy from unfortunately. A negative work environment is certainlynot healthy.
That is really helpful, you have no idea. :) Thank you. I think when I've prayed recently, or in the past, there has always been a bit of passiveness, and possibly selfishness. I find that before casting that spell last week, I had to really pull the intent forward, and not be passive. And what you say here, this gives me pause to think about my boss perhaps in a less harsh light. I have been so angry with him for bringing such negativity into the workplace, that I never really thought about why he is that way. I couldn't really ever know, but he seems lonely and lost. My banishing spell was to banish him, lol at first...but, that's not realistic, so banishing my negative thoughts about him and his negative aura, might be a better aim. Do you think?
I always believe that if you are capable of forgiveness and letting go, you have already free yourself of such negativity. Magic can only go so far, but it is the person themself that must be willing to change. I was once a very negative person. No spell I did could ever help me. I realize I need to make that decision and let go. A spell cannot force me to let go of something I have been holding on to my entire life. Everything is about perspective. Your boss may hold negativity in him, but being a leader; running a project or a business is very difficult. I took on many leadership roles. It was indeed stressful and nerve wrecking.
Continue to pray all negativity away. Just remember you must meet God halfway.
I agree, forgiveness is something that comes from within, and a spell won't help with that. Although, a spell could help you with gaining perspective or strength. My first and only spell I've done was last week, and it has somehow changed me a bit. I didn't expect that. It calmed me, if that makes sense...and I didn't have the same grievance with my boss, that I did before casting the spell. Fast forward to today, and my boss was finally called out on all the terrible behaviors he's displayed at work (he's basically a bully to me and the rest of his team) I've tried to pray for him, help him, befriend him, and he only takes advantage. When I cast that spell, I wasn't emotional but I remember just wanting him to be banished, or at least his negativity to be banished away from me.
Well, he was called into HR today, and that is something I never thought would happen. It's weird though, because I've let go of the angst, and that was probably part of what happened through the spell. lol
That's good then from all you need to do is your best and let karma take care of the rest I am shore the suffering they course is revived back in spades but at the same time its sad that those that endure usually pass on their anger to others theirs a time when people must accept to break the cycle and thats finley when karma as teacher for them you sad in the fact if they never will learn if they dont understand thats all the punishment they will need because they not you are trapped in a endless cycle
Banishing can be about negative energy, but I have found that it generally deals with some sort of entity. When you want to scrub negativity from something, it is easier and usually works better to use a cleansing. That being said, they are very similar in how they are cast. A cleansing is to brighten a space and throw out all of the bad energy in it. It can also be used on yourself as a form of meditation in which you let go of all the things that trouble you and allow yourself to be at peace, releasing any grudges,resentment, or ill feelings from your life. It can be a very healing experience mentally. It sounds like that might be what you did.
The reason it worked is because you cast it on yourself, and the reason it didn't work the first time is because the subject must be a willing participant for it to work. So that would mean that your boss would have to want to get better and be positive for any cleansing you cast to actually help. The old phrase about not being able to help those who don't want to be helped is true. You could do a million cleansings, but if your boss keeps thinking negatively, they will ultimately have no effect.
You could do other things to try and lighten the atmosphere, but it starts with you. You could do a cleansing on your workplace and do your best to go in with a positive attitude every day, but it would still need to be repeated every now and then because energy is sticky and you can't count on everyone coming in with a positive attitude every day. So cleansings are meant to be repeated any time you feel they are necessary.
You could also try to enchant something with positivity. This is the entire concept of a honey jar spell actually, which is meant to sweeten someone's attitude toward you. But you could also try to enchant something like a picture or some flowers or really anything, just to brighten the space around you. How long it would last depends on the intensity of the energy you endowed it with and also the intensity of the energy around it that might oppose it and weaken it. So even these should be recharged as often as you deem necessary.
Best of luck to you with your boss, and I am happy for you for having been able to work it out with yourself. Blessedbe.
