Immediate Centering

I talk a lot about centering and the importance of being centered.  When you’re not centered, you have your mind and energy focused outside of yourself and your body – in the past or future, or in someone else’s thoughts and opinions.  It will make you feel anxious, irritable, restless, and easily affected by outside influences.

The centering exercise in my book, “The Essence of Magick,” requires a little bit of time and focus, but what if you are out in public and suddenly feel yourself becoming anxious or stressed, and you need to center yourself immediately?

One day I was out walking, and suddenly an embarrassing memory popped into my head, and my stomach automatically turned to knots and I began hunching and feeling uncomfortable.

Then I remembered that, if a thought makes me feel uncomfortable, I don’t have to think about it!  So I just said to myself, “I’m right here.”  It brought me straight back into the present, into my body and my mind, and everything old and negative quickly retreated.

The power of those three words startled me, and I began using them frequently, whenever I felt outside myself, anxious about something, worrying about pleasing other people, etc.  “I’m right here.”  It sucks me back into the present moment, and in the present, there is nothing that can’t be dealt with.

If you’re ever feeling on edge, worrying about something, focusing on something outside of your immediate surroundings which is bringing you discomfort, just say those three words – “I’m right here” – and feel your mind and soul uniting immediately in your body; present and at peace.

I just wanted to share that with you all, and I hope it will help you as much as it has me!

Love & blessings,

    I was so impressed with your accuracy of how our thoughts can control us. The words that you used filled my being with so much healing. You are the real deal. I will be keeping in touch for I need this in my life now. I am new to Wicca but it is who I have always been but did not know it. Thank you

  3. Hello I am new and Im going to do a simple white magic love spell from your website called “A Spell to Win Someone’s Love”. It gives me the candles I need and everything but in the instructions it does not say to “cast a circle” like some other spells specifically ask to do. so my question is Do I still cast a circle or is it not necessary for this particular spell? since I’m new I do not want to nothing negative to happen during this spell. full moon is,coming soon and I would apreciate an answer before that. Thank you,very much and blessed be.

    • Ah, the reason the circle isn’t mentioned there is because the act of placing the candles around you and then lighting them, works as a simple substitute to a full circle casting. But by all means, cast the circle properly anyway, it certainly won’t hurt! 🙂

  4. Well this is definitely good information, and what I’ve been doing for a long time, I too know its effects. It really works! Your mind is very powerful, and definitely what creates your own perspective of life, so it’s good to keep it in check.

    Thanks Amaris! 🙂

  5. It certainly does, and it takes some reminding to focus once in a while for sure! 🙂 You’re very welcome, I’m happy to help where I can!
