The Magick of Dayenu

    Today we will be teaching everyone the “Magick of Dayenu.” Roughly translated, Dayenu means "it would have been enough" or "it would have sufficed." This message opens the door to new blessings coming your way. People who are sincerely happy in spite of difficult situations are practicing the art of Dayenu. They look around at their world and say, "This is enough. This is good. We are happy." Or, to take Dayenu one step further, they say, "Not only is this enough, but the step before this would have been enough." Dayenu specifically says, "It would have been enough," not "it is enough." So the truly happy people who practice Dayenu look at their lives and accomplishments and say, "It would have been enough, and we can be happy, even if we did not get as far as we are now ... even if we had stopped at the achievement or happy moment before this one."

    Here is a real-life example of using the art of Dayenu. I have two friends who continually amaze me—they are married, so maybe that has something to do with why they are so happy. Both were hit one year with acute and chronic physical problems, which not only caused them a lot of pain, but also prevented them from doing a lot of work and earning the same income they usually do. The following year, they recovered somewhat from their physical problems, although they still had many doctor visits and healthcare bills. But they were incredibly, oddly, amazingly happy. I asked them, “What makes you so happy? So much has happened to you." They reply, "Yes, it has ... good, bad, ugly, and back to good. Look at where we live. It's a chunk of Heaven! That's enough. Just having this place to live is enough.” Explaining further, they tell me that their physical problems have forced them to have down time, which they would never normally take. They have spent this time with their horses, enjoying their land, and NOT working. They used to live in a big city and had to pay big bucks to relax with the help of massages and therapists, and so on. Now, living in the country, they can relax for free. If they had nothing else but this land, they said, it would have been enough. Do they have physical pain? Yes. Have they had to cut back on expenses? Yes. Do they still have bad days? Of course. But overall, they are living in the magick of Dayenu. On balance, they look for the happiness that comes from acceptance of current conditions, and appreciation of all that has come before that. They understand that even if nothing else good occurs in their life, all that has been in their life thus far “would have been enough.” This is the real definition of the word “Dayenu”. The beauty of Dayenu is that by living in appreciation of all that was good that has come before now, we always attract greater good into our future. Bumps in the road notwithstanding, appreciation of the past and acceptance of the present always (always!) leads to future good. It can be no other way.

Manifesting Money into Your Life

 Often times, the best ways to invite positive energy or money into your life is through manifestation. One of these common ways is through the act of meditation! We will be teaching you how to complete the “Walking Meditation” ritual to help you with your Money Magick! If you enjoy, be sure to check out more of our Money Magick recipes!


  • A place to walk each day at least the length of 2 city blocks (preferably outside).
  • The time to not feel rushed on your walk.

Recipe Directions

  1. Decide for how long or for how far you will walk each day.
  2. On the first part of the walk you will do the talking. You can talk to your guides, your totems, your angels or the Universe in general. Talk about what’s on your mind, what’s going on in your life, or what you want or need. Talk about anything that’s important to you or that you need help with.
  3. When you reach the halfway point in your walk, it is time for you to listen. Take in everything your guides or the Universe are trying to express to you. Feel your feelings, feel the sensations in your body, hear the sounds around you, smell the smells, and take in the sights. Be aware of any thoughts or feelings that come to you. Allow the magick to flow to you by becoming an instrument of listening and absorbing.

This recipe will help you develop a deeper connection and relationship with the Universe and the higher in yourself which will increase your trust and certainty that spiritual helpers are on your side.

Removing the Barriers to Love

Wanting to get to the love of your life this Valentines Day? Here is a recipe that will teach you how to remove the hidden blockages to your life. If you want to learn more about having a successful Valentines Day this year, check out Love Magick!

Ask Spirit of Owl: Remove Hidden Blockages to Love

Time Required: 45 minutes

Ingredients Needed:

  • A quiet place free from distractions
  • Paper and pen optional to write down discoveries throughout the day

Recipe Directions:

  1. Say aloud or in your mind, "Spirit of Owl, I request your help."
  2. Wait a few moments until you feel the presence of Owl (no more than a few seconds). Even if you are not able to feel the presence of the Spirit of Owl at this point, just know that Owl always appears when someone requests their presence and help.
  3. State your request. For instance, if you need help seeing why you keep having negative love relationships, you might say, "Owl, please come with me today and show me what is causing these negative relationships in my life. Please show me in a way that I can clearly understand. Thank you in advance for your help." Appreciation is very important to this process. Appreciation before, during, and after the process is one of the best ways to honor a Spirit guide such as the Spirit of Owl.
  4. Keep an open mind to what Owl will show you. Owl will ride with you on your shoulder, whispering in your ear, giving you knowing and understanding where before you had only blindness and confusion.

Grind the Negative Energy Out of Your Life

If you ever wanted to undo a mistake that you made or get rid of bad energy in your life, we have a solution for you. There is a stone called the Hematite stone which is a type of grounding stone that can be used to pull and attract the bad energy away from your life. It deepens your connection with the Earth and dumps your negative energy into the stone. If you found this ritual enjoyable, check out more Undoing Magick recipes in our eBook!

Grounding Stone Recipe

Time Required: 20 minutes


  • A sample of hematite
  • (Optional) paper and pencil or pen to write Directors, Limiters, and verses
  • Material made of natural fiber or a small bag made of natural fiber

Recipe Directions

  1. Hold the hematite stone in your dominant hand (the hand with which you naturally point).
  2. Focus on the problem or issue that you want to undo in your life and flow those unwanted energies into the hematite stone. This is not a thinking exercise. Just will it, feel yourself pushing that energy out into the stone, and it will happen.
  3. When the stone feels tingly or warm, you have grounded the unwanted energies into the stone.
  4. Wrap the stone in a natural material, like cotton or wool, or place in a small bag made of natural material to store it safely.
  5. Put it away in a safe place where no one will find it and open it or bury it in the ground deep enough that it will not be found.

What are Magickal Tools and how do you use them?

When performing magickal rituals, you are often required to use a magickal tool to aide you in the performance. However, for beginners this can be a bit confusing when starting out. This blog will give a brief introduction to what are magickal tools used for and some information about each one! You can take this information later on and apply it in our T is for Tools Magick Rituals!

Magickal tools do have immense power if formed and used correctly. In fact, most magickal tools are simply extensions of the self so whereas you can do many of the same procedures with your bare hands, using a magickal tool extends the reach or adds more force. Many magickal tools could serve double duty as ordinary objects -- such as a Chalice that resembles a wine glass or an Athame that looks like a hunting knife. There is a special tool for each of the 4 elements that conducts the energies of that element.

  • The Air element tool is the Wand, a stick or rod thought to have magic properties, held by a magician, fairy, or conjuror and used in casting spells or performing tricks.
  • The Fire element tool is the Athame which is a ceremonial blade, generally with a black handle. It is the main ritual implement or magical tool among several used in ceremonial magic traditions.
  • The Water element tool is the Chalice, when we talk about chalices in witchcraft and magic, we generally mean ceremonial goblet used in rituals and spells. Although often silver, you can use a wine glass, ceramic drinking vessel or even something carved from stone.
  • The Earth element tool is the Pantacle or Plate is a talisman that is used in magical evocation, and is usually made of parchment, paper, cloth, or metal (although it can be of other materials), upon which a magical design (usually a protective design) is drawn. However, a plate will usually suffice.
