Magically Blocked

You may have wondered why I've not posted anything remotely "witchy" lately - to tell the truth I seem to have some sort of magical block. Or something. I'm the type of person who if something doesn't feel right, at least where religion, magic, witchcraft etc is concerned, I don't do it. The thing is nothing magical has felt right lately. It's like I've been cut off from my witchiness. Even Samhain didn't make me feel any better - I bought a pumpkin and it's sitting uncarved on my worktop looking quite sad. My Pagan books are collecting dust and I haven't opened my Book of Shadows, not even for a little peak, for months now.

Maybe I need to be more disciplined with my faith in regards to both studying and practicing. Forget the "if it doesn't feel right don't do it" thing and just get on with things. I really don't know. Maybe Yule will give me the boost I need - it's my favourite holiday and celebration.

Do you ever feel like this? How do you get past it? I need some help guys!


  1. I have to say I have been feeling the same way. Mabon marked my 1 year, and I was so busy with the kids and such I was not able to do anything like I wanted. Since then it has been the same. I wanted to do some thing for Samhain but it ended up just being Halloween at my house. Since I am still witchy in the closet at my house, I can not talk to anyone about it. I am not sure how to kick it into gear. Maybe a plop on the couch with a cozy blanket and a nice big pumpkin latte while looking thru some witchy books will get me back intot he magical mood. If you come up with anything pass it along. Blessings my dear

  2. Hold some crystals, light a candle, look at the full moon and breathe deeply ;o) Sounds like you need some energy around you ;o) Give you a boost ;o)

  3. Have you had a purification bath lately? Perhaps that might help slough off any remnant negative vibes that are making you so blue.

    How about re-dedicating yourself again? After all, Samhain is the New Year. Why not do it again, sort of like a reset button. It wouldn’t hurt to try. Let us know if it helps.

  4. I had the same problem a few years back. I have to say it lasted for a loooong time and I was seriously begining to worry but I'm back on track now. Looking back I can see that it was just that life got in the way. I was surrounded by some serious stress but I couldn't see that at the time. Try to step back and look at the bigger picture, maybe there are things getting in the way that need to be sorted.

  5. i am dealing with the same thing. i wish you well on your way back to your witchy self.

    hugs and love


  6. I'm feeling the same myself at the moment. So much is going on in my head and in my life that I just can't summon up the energy to do anything remotely spiritual. I would try a spot of meditation or a nice long walk on my own if I had the time or could leave the kids with someone, but I don't and can't so I shall just blunder on until something 'clicks' I guess.

    Sorry not much help am I LOL!

  7. I also have this problem from time to time. I think that it's natural for a waxing and waning of spiritual practice. To jump start it I usually try to do those things that make me feel magical until I get in the mood.

  8. Don't feel alone my sister. We all go through that we are only human after all. I've had that same block due to a job loss, family issues, health issues and partner problems. I was under the covers in the bed day in and day out. But the Goddess was there no matter what. I could feel her beckon me after a month of that and saying "Come see me". Just like you I did not enjoy Samhain and that is my favorite Sabbat. Some things have gotten better some are the same but if you take some you time and some prayer or even meditation you will be back to your magical self soon enough. Hang in there hun.....I'm here if you need an ear.
    Love and Light....

  9. Hi, I just read your post and it is as if I could have written it. I have been on the path for about 10 years, but the magic is gone and I have been in doubt a lot.
    Maybe it's my midlife crisis. I will have to be patient and look what will happen. I hope it will sort itself out.


  10. Thank you so much for your replies everyone, you've all made me feel so much better - I know I'm not a lone in feeling like this.

    I'm going to have a go at the suggestions people have made and I'll let you know how I get on :)

    Thanks again xxx
