Do It Yourself Spells and Magick

Spells and magick are a do it yourself project.

Real magick, real spells, are not something you can buy from someone who will make things happen for you overnight. That’s fiction. If someone had that kind of power why would they need to sell it? Wouldn’t they already have everything they need? Wouldn’t they give themselves everything they wanted, first?… Read the rest

Just to Listen and Not Expect More

Having any kind of faith, belief or religion is about labelling yourself and having others label you. Even an atheist, someone who does not believe in any gods (or any formal religion) is labelled, an atheist. A religious based name and word. Funny how so many things are ironic like that.

My label, as best as I can pull together the words, is an atheist Green Witch.… Read the rest

What to Write About in Your Book of Shadows

This is not a full and complete list. For one thing, your Book of Shadows should be individual to you. For another thing, these are just ideas, like a writing prompt.

  • Magic rules and principles.
  • Your goals and what you wish to achieve.
  • Dreams and other forms of divination you try.
  • Drawings, doodles – any kind of illustration.

Write a Witchy Spell

First of all, this is a writing exercise, something to try in order to start your flow of words.

Starting Your Book of Shadows

Once upon a time I was writing for Suite101. It was actually the start of the second round I had signed up with them. But, I didn’t see much point in staying. Basically just too little results for the amount of energy I had to put in. Yesterday I went back to check my account and I’m signed up as a writer but not allowed to post anything.… Read the rest

I Like Geomancy

Geomancy interests me because I especially like rocks, stones, and even pebbles (rocks you can hold in your hand or put in your pocket). Stone is like a hard, cold fact with a very long history, by our human standards.

I haven’t tried it, not to read the future. I just enjoy stones. I keep them around, in my bedroom, outside in the yard and the garden we have a lot of rocks.… Read the rest

Where the Wild Things Are: Magick versus Magic

Magic versus magick. Where do you stand on the word?

Magick isn’t in the dictionary, so far. But I think it’s a good addition to the language. It shows a difference in magic as done by a magician versus magick as done by a Witch, Wiccan or Pagan type person. We aren’t doing card tricks to amuse kids at a birthday party.… Read the rest
