This is a very simple weight loss spell, which I wrote in 1990 and have used over the years as an aid to diet and exercise. Remember that magick never relieves you of your responsibility to continue to do all you can on the physical plane to achieve your goals. If you think you are a powerful enough witch that you can just light a candle to take the weight off while you continue to eat chocolate ice cream for desert every night, then I really want to meet you!
Timimg: Waning Moon (start just after Full Moon)
Preparation: Using an athame (or another sharp item that you have ritually blessed) mark a black candle into 14 equal parts (13 rings). Mark each section with number fives (5).
On the night after the Full Moon, burn the candle down to the first mark while meditating, and chanting the following:
"As this candle burns, so my fat burns.
As this candle decreases, so my weight decreases.
I have complete control over my weight.
My body is truly perfect in every way.
I now weigh a perfect __(insert desired goal)___ pounds.
Every day I am slimmer and healthier.
I am as perfect as the Goddess within me.
Thank you, Goddess, for your help.
This is my will, so mote it be."
Do this nightly, burning the candle down to the next mark, until the night of the New Moon, when the candle should be allowed to burn out. It is also helpful to picture your body's fat cells burning off and to feel your increased metabolism and energy. Your body may feel warm and tingly. As the candle goes down, so your weight goes down. You will lose 5-10 pounds over the two weeks. This spell can be done every month, or as needed.
Points to Remember:
This is the affirmation that I wrote for myself, you are free to change it in any way to suit yourself. Rhyming works well, but I wrote this before I was very good at rhyming everything, and I have continued to use it in the original form simply because I like it that way. Always bear in mind that you must see yourself as having already accomplished your goal in the present moment. Also remember that you need to keep wording things as positive, your subconcious mind really hates to "lose" anything. The word "Goddess" can be substituted for whatever God or Goddess you are working with on this, but I would definitely ask for Divine help.
