D.I.Y. Spells & Potions!

Creating a spell or potion is easy. First ask yourself what you want to achieve. Then find what element corresponds best with that goal. If the goal falls under more than one element (like love which can be found in both fire and water) choose the element you feel most comfortable working with. Make the element the basis on your spell and how you will release its energy toward your goal. If you choose fire then burn something as part of your spell. If you choose water then make a drink/potion or set the objects free in a body of water. If you choose earth use crystals and stones or make something to eat. If you choose air use incense, feathers, or set things free in the wind. You can also invoke elementals which possess all the characteristics of the element you are working with. Create a chant or simply use visualization and meditation. Do whatever feels right to you in concerns of spells. Use objects, herbs, tools, foods, ect. which you feel will empower your spell. If at any moment during the spell something feels wrong then close your circle, pull back your energy, and stop the spell. Protection during a spell is crucial and it is always necessary to have the space and your mind clear of negative thoughts. Cleansing before a spell is always recommended. Salt, sage, and creating a circle are all great ways to protect yourself and your home. Burning certain incense will also help. As you see potion making and spellwork are very open to different interpretations. They are a great way to feel more connected with nature and the divine and get what you need out of life.

Over-Estimating Magick by Sir Zachary

Note from Witchy: I have yet another wonderful writing from my friend Sir Zachary. Enjoy!

Hello readers of Witchy Writings. Today I hope to talk about a few things that through recent events have been brought to my attention. Sometimes I have found that people over-estimate what Magick can do. I have been asked far too many times to transform someone into something else. That is mere fantasy. Those who study Magick aren’t deities  but are spiritualists. We do not have power over the laws of Nature or its ways. It is a great spiritual tool but it isn't by any means "all powerful". I know this one is short but I felt this was important to bring up. Have a great Summer.

Summer Solstice!

This year I had a very good Summer Solstice. I went to a great store called Circles of Wisdom and got a book there called Celebrate the Solstice by Richard Heinberg. I got a tarot card deck called Healing with the Fairies by Doreen Virtue. I also got a beautiful heart-shaped rose quartz crystal, a golden candle, and temple incense which are sparkly copper in color. I decided to use my newly purchased items to make an alter excluding the book, tarot set, and rose quartz. I of course took pictures for you all to see.
