The Thirteen Powers of the Witch

When you truly take the power of Witch training into your being and strive to do the best that you can regardless of the situation, the thirteen powers of the universe are given to you. These are either transferred through a religious ceremony by those who have been gifted before you, or they can come at their own pace as you grow and learn on your own. If a power is abused, it is thought that the gift is taken from you, either for a period of time or permanently. The powers speak of blessings that you can give to others or use for yourself to enhance your own life as well as the lives of those around you.

Thirteen powers do the witches claim
their right of lineage by (patron god or goddess)'s name.
Tie a knot and say the words
or hand on head — the blessing conferred.
A Witch can give success in love
curse or bless through God/dess above.
Speak to beasts and spirits alike
command the weather; cast out a blight.
Read the heavens and stars of the night
divine the future and give good advice.
Conjure treasure and bring fortune to bear
heal the sick and kill despair.

This poem can be said as a blessing when giving something to another, and can be included in any spell by adding:
This is my birthright to have and to share blessings upon you, (person's name), may the spirits be fair.

This poem itself is very powerful and will create change. Just be careful what you wish for.
