Hey Lover! 🌝 It's Time to Dance under the Moon!

➡️ http://shamanreal.blogspot.com/2016/08/hey-lover-its-time-to-dance-under-moon.html

We are facing a cosmic event to nourish us with good energy, its liberating light and a lot of creativity to develop new ideas. This definitely PROMISES! And much!.

The promise of happy ending we do not remove anyone. So do not be intimidated by uncertainty and continues to advance on the way out of the comfort zone. Remember that Aquarius inspires us and is a futuristic declared. You can only move forward if we walk... Not let the past tempts you. You were there... I learned what you had... Now embraces the promises of a happier tomorrow, as one who dawns with the first rays of sun, warming the jumble of sheets. Awake! But do not stop dreaming... because the most valuable and profound messages come to us from the pure connection with our unconscious. In the background you already know the answer. Just creértela and accept it how it is.

To add a plus in positivity 😉 Do not miss all the excitement offered by this magical lunation.

About this community

the Temple of Witchcraft is a 501(c)3 nonprofit charitable religious organization based in the State of New Hampshire. Co-founded by Christopher Penczak, Steve Kenson, and Adam Sartwell, the Temple started in 1998 as a system of magickal training and personal development, and eventually developed into a formal tradition of Witchcraft. Now, as an outgrowth of the work of students, initiates, and graduates of the programs, the Temple of Witchcraft has evolved into an organization based on traditions of modern magick, Witchcraft, and neopaganism. The work of the Temple is both other-worldly and terrestrial, seeking to strengthen the connections between spirit and matter through inner transformation and public service.

I am unable to pm atm ~ Spirit animals ( fetches ) are able to morph as your energy does. I am not saying this is the case with your situation , but it is possible ( and probable ) that could be what you are experiencing? ✨

Well, you're posting in the clear to a community with nearly 1,500 people in it - so no, you can't ask things no one else will see. You can ask things over a thousand people will see, though.

What is your question?
More importantly, why are you afraid of people seeing your question?

Energy Work
--------

Before we can talk about how to witchcraft we need to talk about energy and how it's raised, harnessed, shaped and used to a witch's will through spell craft.

Now there are some non traditional spells done without spell casting in a physical sense but we will get to that.

So the way I learned to recognise energy and how to form it was to rub my palms together. Not hard or very fast mind you, just sort of lazy and lightish. You do want some pressure but not much.

Focus is key here now so pay attention. You want to see in your mind a light either blue or white, whichever you prefer (I prefer blue) begin to form between your rubbing palms. Really see this in your mind (in other posts I will speak on techniques to strengthen visualization skills).

After a while (can't tell ya how long cus it's different for every witch) you should begin to feel a tingling or warmth or liquidy feeling between your palms. Again it's different for everyone but those are the 3 ways I've heard it described.

Once this light and feeling reaches its height slowly and I do mean slowly pull your hands apart. You should feel a resistance. As you pull apart see that light and feel it form a small sphere in your palms. Like holding a water balloon minus the balloon and the water is replaced with energy.

This here, this ball of light is the fuel of magic. It's in its raw form still as it has not been programed with your intentions.

Try to hold this visualization as long as possible. Its OK to collapse this energy and it's OK if the visualization drops.

If however you feel jittery I suggest you ground that energy.

Grounding energy simply refers to the process in which you push that excess energy out of yourself and into the earth.

More on grounding can be found here: http://paganwiccan.about.com/od/magicandspellwork/qt/Grounding.htm

So what is this energy?

It's the cosmic life force which exists in all things. Minerals and animals carry an energy all their own that feels different between each of them. These in turn are different still than human energy but in the end it's all energy. It's all this cosmic force which exists in every cell, every atom that moves at sub atomic levels. Remember that nothing is truly solid. Everything moves in a certain pattern that manifests in our reality as a physical object/animal/person/ect.

You can practice feeling the harmonic pattern of different natural items such as plants and crystals.

To start rub your hands together as before palm to palm. Rub a wee bit harder than before but not aggressively so. After about 10-20 seconds shake em like you would if you were flicking off water after just rinsing your hands. 

Cup your hands around the object without touching it. See if you can feel any sort of energy being given off. Remember this can be unique to the witch. I, like a lot of witches, feel a sort of wavelength come off at a certain speed. Fast or slow. Some however feel as if as if it's warm or cold.

It's OK to not feel it right away. Just keep practicing.

Now depending on how these items feel, they can work together to program that raw magical energy we talked about earlier.

These items move in harmony and become correspondences in spells. When used properly and in sync with the witch they can help the witch focus on their will. This focusing and thinking programs the items/correspondences. For example the color green is synonymous with money in witchcraft. The reason I guess Americans would think money is because our money is green. But that's not the only reason.

See the color green has a certain wavelength which matches the wavelengths associated with the idea of wealth, the earth, materialistic desires and several other things.

When these combined with the raw fuel of raised energy and your desire, your willpower, your thoughts, magic is born.

These items in unison become the physical representation of the outcome you wish. This is why you don't see the person sick while doing a healing spell. You see them well and free of pain and misery. You instead see them well and happy.

Your thoughts carry this energy too. That's why focusing on your desire is a key element in witchcrafting. It will be mentioned throughout this guide as its #1 on the how to witch crafting list.

So now that we covered all that, let's talk about how we harness this energy.

We start like before by rubbing our hands and forming a ball of energy.

And just like we did in feeling for different energies we are going to cup the ingredient/correspondence in our spell. You may also "charge" the spell item like a bag or loaded candle or oil in one go instead of doing each individual piece.

Some ingredients you will use will feel so powerful you may not feel the need to charge them individually but rather simply add them to the working. That's OK but some items like salt have multiple almost conflicting energy patterns and so charging them with our intent is key in magic.

Now that we have the ingredient in-between our hands, we are going to visualize and feel that energy pushing into the spell item. When using herbs I prefer to physically hold the individual herbs or resins and charging them one at a time. I have more time to charge it with my will and align it's harmony with my own. They will strengthen my spell work.

Don't worry if you don't get it yet. We will go over a simple spell together to help you to understand how to do this.

So to start let's make a loaded rune candle for peace in the home.

Timing, numerology, planetary influences, crystals, herbs, colors, and all kinds of things can lend aid to your magic. Most of not all these things will be explored in future posts.

We first start with what we wish to accomplish by preforming this spell. Get a piece of paper and a pencil to brainstorm if necessary. It will come in later for making sigils and other magics you can preform to strengthen your spell.

As I said this will be a candle that will be burned for peace.

I would write down candle on the scrap paper or rather my book of mirrors. More on that later though.

We look to color magic to find an appropriate color that will lend energy to our working. Blue is a correspondence of peace. Blue'S energy matches that of peace making be a corresponding element to peace.

For a large list of correspondences I suggest Llewellyn's Complete Book of Correspondences: A Comprehensive & Cross-Referenced Resource for Pagans & Wiccans by Sandra Kynes.

There are other books regarding specifics in magic such as The Crystal Bible by Judy Hall, Color Magic by Richard Webster, Tarot for Beginners by Barbara Moore, Cunningham's Encyclopedia of magical herbs, ect.. I find Kynes's book to be a good beginner option until you are able to find or read info on specific fields of magical correspondences.

Anyway moving on...So I have a blue chime candle but blue glass jar candles or regular taper candles work just as well. This candle will be burned to return peace to the home after a fight or any bad energy that comes creeping in due to daily life.

Since this candle will be 'loaded' I need to find out what herbs correlate to peace and cross reference them with ones I happen to have on hand.

A loaded candle has items embedded into it by the witch. Usually herbs or personal concerns (tag locks).

The herbs I have are basil, coffee, lime, orange, lavender, olive. I write them down in my BoM/scrap paper. I have more but I'm trying to use common herbs and flowers found in a variety of places. I'm cheap like that lol but it's also to show what magic tools can be used very cheaply.

Now using numerology we learn that the number 2 is associated with peace. 

I apply numerology by choosing 2 herbs to load my candle with.

I choose lavender flowers and olive oil. I circle them on the paper to remind myself later of which ingredients to grab.

The oil will be added in small doses to the charged and powdered lavender flowers so they can better stick to the rune we will be carving on the candle. It won't be massive amounts of oil being used. Just enough to barely moisten.

An alternative option would be to add lavender essential oil to olive oil and anoint the candle with this mix before being burned but I like to load my candles. This is a personal choice. You should use what works for you.

I prefer to use runes over sigils. That's my choice so so will be using the rune Jera. You can of course use a sight if that's what works for you.

Now that we got the ingredients listed we will still need a few things to make the candle.

Miscellaneous items include a needle or witches blade (also known as an athame or a bolline - depending upon personal ideas about whether to cut with an athame or not) to carve the rune on the candle, a mortar and pestle to crush the lavender (this is optional) and a lighter or candle flame to heat the blade/needle/nail/ect.

First grab the lavender and mortar. We're going to charge about a tablespoon full of blossoms in our hands. Never empower herbs in bulk as many herbs have different properties. For example pepper can both repel and protect.

We rub our hands together to get that energy going. We think about being calm and peaceful, being in an environment of lightness. As we visualize this we feel that energy rising. The energy becomes peaceful in feeling. Now shake your hands out like theyre wet but still see that energy/light in your hands. Pour some lavender in your hand. We cup the herbs with our hands and push that energy of peacefulness into the herbs.

Grind em up with the pestle all the while thinking of peacefulness.

Using your carving implement heat the tip and begin to carve the rune Jera into the wax. Make it sort of wide and deep as we will be packing the carving. Don't penetrate to the wick though.

Now that your carving is done, dip your finger into the olive oil and apply it to the carving. Press the ground herbs into the carving. Brush off the excess. Add a drop of olive oil to the outside to moisten the herbs and get them to stick a bit better.

You can choose to pour a small amount of olive oil into a small dish so you can charge it with peacefulness too. The choice is yours.

Repeat till entire carving is filled with herbs. 

Now we want to empower the candle so once again we rub our palms together like a 1950's cartoon villain.

We visualize peacefulness in our home.

Cupping the freshly made loaded candle we push that peaceful energy into the candle.

Remember that sound has a wavelength too, same as everything else. Chanting can permeate the candle with your willpower as well. If you had a chant you wished to use that's totally fine. Speaking with authority is a very valid form of magic. The Egyptians called it heka. 

Now for more magical energy I could do this spell during a planetary hour associated with peace. Monday is associated with the moon and the moon with peace. Planetary magic is something we will explore more on later.

As the candle burns it released that peaceful energy we built up into it. Our spell is complete.
