“Every weight loss program, no matter how positively it’s packaged, whispers to you that you’re not right. You’re not good enough. You’re unacceptable and you need to be fixed.”
― Kim Brittingham
Nearly everyone has experience with at least one moment of panic after looking at the bathroom scale. Where the heck did those pounds come from? Sometimes it feels as if breathing air is a “fat-producing activity!” And, of course, there are hundreds of ads telling you about the latest fad foods and miracle diets. It’s really no wonder that some people just give up. There’s no real support system in our society that works for everyone. But yet, there’s magic.
Do Skinny Spells Work
We all know the mantra that losing weight means a lifestyle change. There is no arguing with that truth. The healthier you eat, the better. Regular exercise–awesome! Personal affirmations–inspiring! So, you have body and mind working together, but what about your spirit? That needs a tune-up too.
The idea behind these spells is providing you with another ally in your goal of healthy weight loss. Magic certainly isn’t a quick fix as much as we might wish. It is, however, something you can do any day you want. And it’s an activity with a focus on your personal journey.
Weight Loss Charm Spell
Create this charm during a waning moon (for the visual symbolism of your shrinking waistline). You need a pink candle (for self-love), a small pouch, and about a teaspoon each of ground ginger, cayenne pepper, and cinnamon (all of these are herbs physically assist in weight loss).
Light your candle. Visualize the image of yourself that makes you happy. Place the herbs in your pouch, then moving counterclockwise carefully turn the pouch around the candle flame. Circle it three times saying:
Burn away the excess weight
Fire, my fat eliminates!
Carry this pouch with you particularly when you’re eating a meal. If your resolve begins to wane, take a pinch of the herbs out of your charm and sprinkle them near you reciting the incantation mentally. Refill the pouch as necessary.
Grapefruit Aromatherapy Candle Spell
Our sense of smell ties closely with our appetite, triggering hunger or fullness long before our stomach rumbles.
You can use a candle spell combined with aromatic oil for your weight-loss goals. For this, you need one candle that represents you–any color you wish. You also need grapefruit essential oil. If you can’t find grapefruit, other options include lemon, sandalwood, bergamot, and vanilla.
Put the candle near a window that gets good morning light. Dab the oil onto the candle. Focus on your goal, then light it saying:
In the light of day, my determination won’t sway
healthy weight be mine, in this candle shine.
Let the candle burn for a few minutes before burning it out. Repeat this spell every day for one week. You can continue using the spell as often as you wish, just replace the candle with a new one.
Hint: Use any of the aromatic oils listed in a potpourri that you keep near your kitchen and dining room table. Or put the oil on a cotton ball that you can carry with you anywhere you wish.
Crystals for Weight Loss
Time this spell for the full moon. You need a black crystal like an onyx or black tourmaline. The stones need to be small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. Also, a swatch of cloth.
On that day, sit down and write a list of all the things hindering your weight loss goals. Examples include binge eating, cheating, craving salt or sugar, lack of motivation, stress, having a bad personal image, etc. Bear in mind situations and people can be deterrents as well, like having a friend who eats a lot in front of you while you’re looking at salad.
Come night, go out under the moon (if the weather sucks, go to a window where you can see it). Put the stone on the cloth. Sit down and read each item on your list into the stone with force. Feel like you’re actually pushing that negative thought form or habit directly into the rock. Shout if it helps. Repeat the list several times. That only increases the power of your spell. The number doesn’t matter, but maybe your “lucky” number of times would be a good choice.
When you are done, carefully wrap the stone with the cloth. DO NOT TOUCH the stone. That’s like accepting back everything you just put in there. Take it outside and bury it somewhere that it won’t be disturbed. Turn your back and walk away. DO NOT LOOK BACK. That is behind you now. Move forward.
Fire Spell for Weight Loss
There is something really therapeutic about crumpling up a symbol of what we dislike and watching it burn away. The visual impact is pretty great as well.
For this spell, you need a fire-safe container, self-lighting charcoal and a picture of yourself at a weight that makes you uncomfortable. Alternatively, use an image of the food that frequently derails the diet track.
Light the charcoal and wait until it’s burning red (like your outdoor grill). Crinkle, tear, shred–whatever–that image and put the pieces in the burner. Repeat this incantation until the entire thing is nothing more than ashes:
”Burn away, each stubborn pound
In this pyre, by magic bound.”
Make sure you put those ashes where they belong–in the garbage heap!
Make Your Own Weight Loss Spells
There is nothing that says you have to use a prefabricated spell exactly as written for your personal weight loss efforts. If anything, you know yourself, so you also know the most meaningful symbols for your goal. Find a spell that seems appealing, then change it so it really makes your heart sing.
The very best Wiccan spells for weight loss start with a love spell – a love yourself spell! Now, maybe you want to drop a few because you do love yourself and want to be healthier. Congrats! But, if you find that you’re fretting over the extra pounds (whatever amount that is to you) because you believe you’ll only be happy when the perfect number appears on your scale – reach for the self-love spells. If you’re desperate to shave off excess padding because you believe only thin or thinner people are attractive to others – reach for the remove- judgment spells.
