Storm magick is one of the most powerful energies you can use for your spiritual practices. Storms carry their own magick in the form of intense energy. This energy can be used for any spell or spiritual intentions you can think of. But before you can begin to harness this energy you have to create a receptive state of mind. At a moments notice you must be able to surrender control and become receptive. Because storms come and go as they please, working with storm magick requires a lot of pre-ritual planning. It’s a promising idea to have a kit packed and ready to go at a moments notice.
There are two elements that you will want to have ready to receive the energy of a storm 1) yourself 2) your will
Working up magickal energy - An exercise to prepare yourself for harnessing storm energy.
Breathe deeply. Close your eyes, and allow yourself to relax. Become aware of your body, where you are tensed or relaxed. Imagine that your breath is rushing into those tense areas, filling them. With your exhale allow the tension to flow out from you on your breath. Give yourself awhile with this.
When you are relaxed, imagine that the forces that drive the Universe are flowing through you. You may wish to say a favorite prayer or poem that inspires you. Visualize it as a bright light that permeates everything. Sense it as a real force flowing into and through your body. Allow it to rush inward with your inhale, and to flow outward with your exhale. Get to know it. Become one with it. Don’t be discouraged if this part takes some time. Real magick takes effort. Once you master visualizing and sensing it, experiment with moving it. Try gently tossing it from one hand to the other and changing its color. Note how this sensation feels and a physical level. Some feel it as a tingling, or as a heat. Some describe it like a coolness or even simply as a “knowing”, whatever the sensation, physical or otherwise, focus on it until it becomes a familiar one. When you feel comfortable working with energy in this way, you can try “programming” it with specific intentions (compassion, strength, calming, etc.) by focusing intently on the quality and noticing the flow of energy that accompanies it. You can then focus this energy into a stone and carry it with you, or you can focus it into food before you eat.
Grounding - Grounding is a technique that helps keep someone in the present. They help reorient a person to the here-and-now and in reality. Grounding skills can be helpful in managing overwhelming feelings or intense energy. They help someone to regain their mental focus from an often intensely emotional state. There are many ways to ground yourself, here are a few:
Splash some water on your face. Notice how it feels. Notice how the towel feels as you dry.
Take ten slow breaths. Focus your attention fully on each breath, on the way in and on the way out. Say number of the breath to yourself as you exhale.
Wear an elastic band with grounding stones on your wrist (not tight) and flick it gently, so that you feel it spring back on your wrist.
Your will...They say you should never show up to a party empty handed! In this case, you definitely want to come prepared. The energy of a storm can provide a great amount of personal power to your magick. Its also an excellent cleanser. You must decide what it is you want and prepare accordingly. Depending on the employment of the storm, you may want to have circle salts, ritual candles, specific incense or ritual tools such as your athame or wand, a cauldron or chalice. But know this…you don’t need anything at all. In fact, there is not a “thing” that can interfere with the transfer of storm energy aside from pure will. When a storm comes, you either surrender and harness it by working up your magickal energy or your ground yourself and save it for a later time.
Copper is a conduit. It is a channel that conveys energy through water. For working up storm energy in the present or saved storm water from a previous storm, pour the collected storm water into your bowl and place both hands beneath it. Surrender. Receive. Focus your energy as you intend.
To ground yourself, fill your bowl with warm water mixed with roots or dirt. You can even use grounding crystals if you wish. Surrender. Receive. Observe the present moment. Be mindful.
Pendulums are a multi-purpose tool and an important part of magick. They aid a practitioner is deepening their trance or meditation techniques through dousing. They aid in empowering psychic senses through divining the future. They align and balance the chakras. Because this is an introduction kit, we are using it to aid in visualization and moving magickal energy. To use a pendulum with storm energy. Let the pendulum stir in the top layer of the water in your bowl while your focus on your intent. Once the pendulum comes to a complete stop, move the pendulum to the place you intend the energy to go. This could be a single chakra, all the chakras or a spell component. Let the pendulum stir until it comes to a natural stop.
You have successfully harnessed storm energy when you have received it, moved it to its focused intention and grounded yourself back to the present moment.
