Ah emojis...we definitely can't live without them. Emojis provide a way to send our messages in the most fun way possible. It's also perfect for those moments when you really don't want to go into detail on a sticky situation and just abbreviate it instead.
But, did you know that you can use these same emojis for spell work? 😲
I discovered emoji spells through Tumblr and also from a follower who retweeted the spell via Twitter from someone who was providing a prosperity emoji spell. I was definitely intrigued and wanted to learn more about it.
The nice thing about emoji spells is that there are endless amount of ways to express your intentions without making it obvious. Just as you're creating artwork, emojis are symbols that can be used and harnessed through the energy of technology. Believe it or not, our smartphones are made of energy. With every mechanical part in our living space, the energy that helps run these devices allow us to communicate in the most effective way possible. Did I mention that it's portable? For us modern witches, this can be a dream saver when you're on the go.
Here are a few starter tips:
What is the focus of your spell?
Before you do any important spell work, take the time to clear your thoughts and meditate on your intention. It's vital that you keep yourself grounded before you invoke any type of spell. If you have your smartphone available and feel the need to cleanse away any negative energies, please do so (but with caution as you don't want to risk damaging your device). A good example is to pass some incense over the smartphone while saying a short prayer to release any negative attachments.
Once your device is prepared, think of the intention that you want to set. Try not to be vague with your intention as this may cause more problems in the long run. Be as specific as possible. For example, I want love is a vague intention. You may end up opening up attracting the wrong type of love. Instead, try restructuring to your intention as this - I am open and ready to receive a loving relationship with myself and for someone in my life. I tend to leave out the time line as I don't want to set expectations on what time and when the end result should be completed. Remember - the Universe will let you know when the result will come. It's a matter of patience.
What type of emojis will you place?
hether if you're using the Apple or Google emojis, there are plenty of ways to dress up your spell. For the snapshot below, I'm using my iPhone emojis as an example. Here, you'll see that I constructed a simple spell on receiving abundance in my life. Notice that I wrote my intention below. This is to help me focus the purpose of the spell.
In terms of the emoji spell format, I usually like to add the sparkle emojis at the beginning and at the end. Coming from a programming background, I tend to view the sparkle emojis as like the formatting tags when you want to define a property (ex. <p> and </p> as the paragraph tags in HTML5). Why did I use the sparkle emoji specifically? It's because in my mind, I am thinking of a ray of light illuminating the intention as I cast the spell.
Now for the three emojis that I have in the middle...why did I choose them? If you look at the statement I wrote below, I mentioned that I was ready and willing. I denoted the women with the crown and the woman running emoji as the type of actions on what I'm currently doing. The money stack with wings is an indication of abundance flying into my life. Pretty simple right?
Of course, my spell is relatively short. However, you're more than welcome to construct a longer emoji spell. You don't necessarily have to follow my format on my opening and closing emojis for the spell work. It can be just as simple as two emojis. When you craft your emojis, go with what your intuition tells you.
Will this spell be posted publicly or is it for private use?
Now that your spell has been written out, it's a matter of who will be your target audience. If you decide to make it public on social media, you do have a choice if you want to explicitly state on what the spell is about. But what if you haven't came out of the closet as a witch? You can simply leave it as it is. I like using Snapchat and from time to time, I would often do fun sketches and emojis with my intentions (my handle name is @dianarchin).
If you choose to do it privately, you can use an editing app where you can type in your own emojis and save it. Get creative! You can perhaps make an emoji background wallpaper for your smartphone with your emoji spell on it. If you're concerned about privacy, just make sure that your phone is password protected. You can look into journal apps that have a feature where you can enter your own password.
What do you think? Do you have any emoji spells you wanna share? I would love to hear them in the comments!
