Positive Thinking Power: Dr Emoto’s Rice Experiment

The rice experiment is another famous Emoto demonstration of the power of negative thinking (and conversely, the power of positive thinking.)
In this experiment, Dr Emoto placed portions of cooked rice into two containers. On one container he wrote “thank you” and on the other “you fool”. He then instructed school children to say the labels on the jars out loud everyday when they passed them by. Aftr 30 days, the rice in the container with positive thoughts had barely changed, while the other was moldy and rotten.
If you have any doubt in the validity of this test, try it at home for yourself. Be sure to spend at least 30 seconds, twice a day consciously intending negative thoughts or positive thoughts at the respective containers of rice. And make sure you use cooked rice, as its water content is what produces the results.
His experiments demonstrate that human thoughts and intentions can alter physical reality, in this case the molecular structure of water. Given that humans are comprised of at least 60% water, his discovery has far reaching implications… can anyone really afford to have negative thoughts or intentions?
If this happens to rice……
….Image what a witch can do with her words.

The power used in magick and witchcraft is rooted in the knowledge of four simple rules known as the witch’s pyramid.
These are the four corner stones of magick, and though they may not be completely magickal in and of themselves, their joint application is. The ability to utilize the four magick rules will result in the ability of what is known as ‘witch power’.
The four rules of magick are:
Imagination, Willpower, Faith and Silence.
Imagination is the ability to summon within your mind an idea or desire. The imagination used in the witch’s pyramid should be focused and complete.
Willpower is the drive for the idea and desire summoned with imagination. This is the magickal will, which should be potent and unwavering.
A firm Faith in ones abilities is also necessary for the application of the magickal will and vivid imagination. Without this then there would be no belief in the powers of the witch. You must have strong faith in your spells, faith in your own true power.
Silence is a necessary tool for the budding practitioner of the occult arts. Though we are in a more ‘enlightened’ time period in which there is more freedom, it would do you well to practice in the art of secrecy. Tell no one of your workings that is not understanding to your cause. For their cynical responses can be damaging to the faith that you have built and their negative energies can affect the course of a spell. Also a more mundane reasoning to keeping silent about your workings is the very real damage of fear. Fear from neighbors who upon learning of your extra-curriculum activities will proceed to call the authorities every night you are casting a spell. Fear from coworkers who slander your good name to elevate themselves and diminish your time at a job. Fear from fanatics who will picket your house or harass you with their benedictions and prayers of enslavement.
The culmination of the four rules or pyramid powers will result in the basic and fundamental achievement of witch power. Stay true to the witch’s pyramid and magick will most certainly be a foot.
The Full Moon
The full moon is the point at which we can see an entire side of the moon. For magical purposes, many modern Wiccans consider the full moon to include the day before and the day after a full moon, for a total of three days. This is a good time to do rituals focused on personal growth and spiritual development.
Some examples would include:
- Spells related to increasing your intuitive awareness
- Healing magic
- Rituals that connect you closely with God or Goddess, such as Drawing Down the Moon
- Any magic related to developing your magical skills
- Hold an Esbat Rite – Celebrate the Full Moon
The waning moon
The waning moon is the period during which the moon goes from full to dark once again. Like the waxing moon phase, it lasts approximately two weeks. This time of the month is used to do “baneful” magic — that which sends away, gets rid of or destroys things you no longer wish to be burdened by.
Some examples would include:
- Spells to eliminate negative people or toxic relationships from your life
- Workings to smoothly end a relationship or job
- Rituals that banish bad habits
- Any magic related to reducing things, such as debt, illness, etc.
The new moon
The new moon is sometimes tricky to work with because you can’t always see it during this phase – it will appear as a very faint crescent of silver low on the horizon, if you can see it at all. For approximately three days during each lunar cycle, after the moon has waned, it goes dark before waxing again. This is considered a time to conduct wish spells.
Some examples might include:
- Cleansing and purifying of the body and mind
- Rituals that designate sacred space
- Any magic related to inner harmony and peace
The waxing moon
The waxing moon is the period during which the moon grows from dark to full. It takes approximately fourteen days for this to happen. It’s the time of the moon to perform “positive” magic — in other words, spells that draws things to you, or increases things.
Some examples would include:
- A money spell
- A working to get a new job or home
- Bringing love into one’s life
A Moon Power Spell
…..this spell can be performed indoors as well as outside. It is representational since you use a paper moon or flower.
In the incantation the Moon is represented as a white swan.
This should be done at the time of the Full Moon and is designed to bring the energy of the Moon within your grasp until the next Full Moon.
You will need
- A BOWL OF WATER
- WHITE PAPER MOON OR FLOWER
Float the paper moon or flower in the bowl.
Raise the bowl towards the Moon in the sky and say:
Hail to thee white swan on the river.
Present life, tide turner,
Moving through the streams of life, all hail.
Mother of old and new days,
To you, through you, this night we cling to your aura.
Pure reflection, total in belief, touched by your presence, I am in your power and wisdom.
Praise your power, your peace, my power, my peace. I am strong. I praise. I bless.
Replace the bowl on your altar. Stand for a few moments appreciating the power of the Moon.
This spell is purely an incantation to the Moon and is therefore very simple. It needs no other tools or techniques except a physical representation of the Moon. Water is sacred to the Moon and therefore we offer her that which belongs to her.
Material to create your Voodoo Doll
There are no real accepted rules on how to create a “real” Voodoo doll. You can make any doll you want, and however you want, by keeping in mind that the doll will have direct materialistic and spiritual connection to the person.
People have made Voodoo dolls from any materials they could get their hands on in various places and periods, such as clay, wood, wax, corn leaves, human bones, various fabrics, feathers, plant roots, etc.
You can use any materials at your disposal. Let’s have a look at some in more detail.
New Orleans Voodoo dolls were mostly made out of blue clay, which was dug out of burrows of crayfish. You can use any clay you want to create your dolls. When finishing working on a doll, a hollow void is kept inside, where materials can be put into that hold symbolism or belong to the person such as herbs for example. After that the doll is brought into a proper form, painted and applied with magical symbols.
A classic material for New Orleans Voodoo dolls. This plant resembles a human beard hanging from the branches of trees, and is an excellent material for stuffing pillows, furniture, etc. This is why Spanish Moss is common in southern United States, and has been used successfully by Louisiana sorcerers. A “traditional” Voodoo doll without legs is made out of this plant.
A material which is perfect in almost all aspects. It is flexible and capable to last in its original shape for a long time. Wax is especially preferred for its ease of human portrayal, ease of carving magic symbols and the possibility to attach human hair to the doll.
Rag dolls were used in New Orleans Voodoo and were made from two strips of material. These two strips are then embroidered into two identical forms on the left and right side of the doll, leaving a hole to fill the doll with magic herbs, objects or ordinary moss.
The most primitive doll can be made out of wood, but such dolls will only depict a human form in a very generalized way (without the small details). Sometimes a single doll is carved from a single piece of wood, which requires a certain skill and accuracy. One of the simplest versions of dolls which were popular in early stages of Voodoo in Louisiana was a thick tree branch or stump covered in moss, trimmed with a cloth and a face which made the doll look somewhat realistic.
The roots of a mandrake, which often look very similar to a human figure, can be used for Voodoo magic without any additional work. With sufficient skill, you can carve a figure of a human from potatoes, celery or the like.
Those who are familiar with the papier-mache technique don’t need explanation how a Voodoo doll can be made out of paper. The two basic ways to do so is to either turn the paper into pulp, soak it and mix it with an adhesive composition (then it can be used as clay or wax), or apply layer by layer, gluing the paper to the same composition. It is easy to turn paper into a substitute for other materials.
Voodoo dolls out of bones are mainly used for black magic.
Dolls can be made out of plastic, polyethylene, foam, or even from 3d printers using the latest technology
Color Symbolism in Voodoo Dolls
The choice of clothing for Voodoo dolls is not made out of decorative or aesthetic reasons.
