Hey all! This blog post is going to be the start of my new ‘Song Spells’ feature! Every now and then I’ll post a way to utilize the power of music and lyrics in affirmation and spell work!
Music is incredibly healing to many of us and I think it will be an awesome, and easy, way to start working some magic.
Today’s song is: Don’t Let Me Down by The Chainsmokers, featuring Daya.
I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome I think this song is. The lyrics scream spellwork at me and I have actually used this song for that specific purpose! You can use this as a petition to the Divine in times of need.
I mean, even Daya is rockin’ a pretty witchy vibe in the music video.
I personally used it as a calling to the Universe when I needed some emotional and financial support for a fundraiser I was doing.
I mean the openings lyrics! Amazing.
Crashing, hit a wall. Right now I need a miracle. Hurry up now, I need a miracle Stranded, reaching out, I call your name but you’re not around I say your name but you’re not around
I also really dig how this is so bad-ass. You’re telling the Universe “hey, hurry up now, I’m suffering and I need some help.”
There are a bunch of ways that I think this song could be worked into a spell. The way I did it was to blast it as loud as I safely could in my car, all the windows rolled down, including the sun roof, my left hand dangling out of the window, palm flipped up to the sky (left is receiving) and singing at the top of my lungs, making sure to put all I had into the following lyrics:
Don’t let me down Don’t let me down, down, down Don’t let me down, don’t let me down, down, down
The fun part is towards the end when Daya really belts out “don’t let me down” THIS is the moment when I put my energy BACK into the Universe and I command that I am supported.
If you want to do this in a structured ritual then I would recommend getting a stone that speaks to you of prosperity and grounding, or even a stone that opens up the heart cauldron. I’d listen to the song on repeat and build up that energy a time or two and then on the third(?) go I’d try to release it on the belt-y part at the end of the song.
Really, this song is already so well suited to witchcraft that I can’t think of too much to do to dress it up – just sing, even if it’s in the shower in the morning!
