Many of our human conditions, such as anxiety and depression, are thoughtforms that have latched onto an individual’s aura; whether that individual created the thoughtform or was affected by someone else’s. Because anxiety and depression are based in fear their vibrations are dense. Anxiety is a focus on what might happen in the future; a focus on “what if”, while depression is a focus on what already happened in the past; a focus on “what should have / could have been”. Both conditions have a root cause even when that root cause cannot be easily distinguishable due to the extended period of time the “sufferer” has been living with either condition. Neither is something that just “is”. Both are consequences of a way of thinking and believing. It is a thoughtform that someone has created with thought, which means that either can be transformed or destroyed.
It may be difficult to believe especially when actively dealing with anxiety that it is beyond your control, but you are not powerless. To believe that you are powerless is to freely give away your power and to become powerless. To say that your anxiety is uncontrollable makes it so. We give that thoughtform of anxiety control of our lives when we speak or think this way. We identify and personalize anxiety so that we and it become one in the same; to change this … to reclaim your power and control over your life you need to shift your perception.
“I am anxious” equates me with the thoughtform of anxiety. I am the anxiety.
“I am depressed” equates me with the thoughtform of depression. I am the depression.
The first step to reclaiming your personal power is to shift the perception of the condition from something you are to something you are experiencing. Until you are honestly ready to shift your perception, it is important to understand that you may not desire to change your condition because you may very well be gaining something you need from it, you will never be able to control the anxiety and will continuously live in the vibration of fear. This is perfectly acceptable because it is your life experience. I place no judgement on those who wish to maintain their current condition. Understand that shifting your perspective can be a challenge, especially if you have been living with anxiety for most of your life. The energetic momentum of the thoughtform that has been attached to your aura will have gained power through the constant feeding of emotion. This will be different for someone who may have only been feeling anxious for the last few years of their life as the momentum of that thoughtform may not have as great a weight.
A Witch is ideally aware of his or her self; they know their strengths and their weaknesses; they are honest with themselves and understand the power of their thoughts and emotions using both to manifest through magick. Most Witches intellectually understand what thoughtforms are and how to intentionally create them for a purpose, but many Witches become obstinate with the idea that anxiety and depression are things that they “just are” and that they can never get rid of it, or that their condition will never change. I would agree, but only because in the act of saying this, makes it so. Don’t get me wrong, it is definitely more than just a matter of believing hard enough; change requires belief, effort, and action.
Witches do not possess super powers, but we do possess a unique ability to see beyond what the cowan sees, to know more about the nature of ourselves and our magick than what the cowan knows. And we understand why our behaviors, actions, and words need to be aligned for change to occur. When that all falls into place, we can without hesitation snap our fingers and just “poof” away whatever condition we desire … it’s called casting a spell.
This really leaves me considering why there are so many Witches within modern society who feel anxious on a daily basis. What are we creating for ourselves that creates and perpetuates such an uncomfortable condition?
