What is an Anxiety Spell?
For ancient Pacific Islanders, 🎣 a man fishing in the river did not look the same as one fishing in the sea. Before setting sail, they performed a series of very complex rituals, something that did not happen when they went fishing in inland rivers.
Malinowski, the famous anthropologist who studied the people of the Trobriand Islands, noted that these rituals dampened fear and provided a sense of security, symbolic value, and the promise that everything would be fine.¹

Tips: Using Magick for Anxiety

Do Anxiety/Depression spells work?
Meditation or prayer can be very calming or centering. These activities represent an “excellent habit for people to get into. They can do that within a faith tradition, or they can do it from a mindfulness perspective.” – Mary Fristad, clinical child psychologist with the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
A study published in the journal “Current Biology” showed that ritualization might be an anxiety-reducing coping strategy, but it’s best to practice rituals in a mindful way as opposed to mechanical repetition. 🧘
Mindfulness means being aware of thoughts and feelings in the moment. It can reduce stress and help you integrate and process intrusive or negative thoughts in a way that makes them less distressing. When used in this way, anxiety spells can be ideally suited for helping alleviate symptoms of depression.
Anxiety After Spell Casting
Some practitioners of Magic report feelings of anxiety after a love spell or a similar ritual. Expectations can lead to anxiety, so it’s best not to have expectations and instead try to stay present and grateful. Know that your spell is already working and it’s manifesting, but this process can take some time.
Don’t overthink or obsess about the spell after casting it. Learn the signs that a spell has worked and stay positive because the spell is in an active pushing phase.
