The Lance: A Spell for Focus

 Life's full of distractions. Sometimes, you just need a little extra focus to cut through the noise. 

This simple ritual can help you keep your attention on the next thing you need to tackle.  

Make it a habit, and soon you'll find it much easier to stay on course.

Suggested Timing: When the Moon is in Lunar Mansion 1. On a Wednesday or Sunday. Under a Waxing Moon.

Return to Lunar Mansion 1: Al Sharatain, or The Lance

The Lance of Light Ritual

For when you need to act without distraction

What you’ll need:

  • Yourself

Step 1: Bring your materials to a place that makes you feel safe, where you won’t be disturbed.

Step 2: Close your eyes, and ground and center yourself. Invite your spiritual guides or totem allies to join you in your work.

Step 3: Imagine before you a goal that you would like to achieve or attain. It can be something short-term (like cleaning a room), long-term (like writing a book), or habit-forming (like going to the gym). 

Step 4: Imagine yourself attaining this goal. How will you feel? What would your life be like? How would your circumstances change? Imagine this in as much detail as you can.

Step 5: Now imagine that between you and your goal, a lance of light is forming. This lance runs from your solar plexus pointing directly toward your goal. This lance yearns to connect with its target, pulling you toward it. 

Step 6: As you sit with this lance, visualize the next step you can take RIGHT NOW toward this goal. See yourself taking this action.

Step 7: When your vision is clear and complete, loudly say "Yes!"

Step 8: Reelease the vision. and thank your guides and allies for helping with your work. Return to the waking world.

Step 9: Now go do that next step you imagined in your ritual. If you can’t literally do it right now, then take another step that will help you do it later (leave yourself a note, set up files, or pack your gym clothes, whatever is relevant to your goal.)

(Optional) Step 10: Continue to revisit this visualization until your goal is attained. If you want a physical reminder, you can find an arrow, a pointed stick, or a small knife, as a stand-in for the lance of light.
