Spells without an alter?

Postby pandoram » Sun Sep 12, 2010 12:05 pm

Do you have to do all you spells on an alter? I'm in the process of getting all of my alter items so was wondering if I can start doing spells with the few alter items I have, or without an alter at all?

I do spells without any items or an altar. They work well ;) The only question ist if you like it this way and it fits the atmosphere you need. It's not the things you use, it's only about yourself and your ability.

I agree with these two. You really don't need an altar. It's really just a tool to help you somewhat. I don't use mine every single time I cast a spell. I don't think it's necessary. :D
Breathing in I feel gratitude; Breathing out I give thanks.
Breathing in I feel joyful; Breathing out I celebrate.
Breathing in I know compassion; Breathing I am compassion.
Breathing in I feel loved; Breathing out I offer love.
Breathing in I am still; Breathing out I am at peace.
Om.

I agree with the other posts. I don't have an altar at all because I can't afford the stuff, and don't have anywhere to put it :P It's just an aid to spells that some people like to use, in the same way that some people can use pure visulaization rather than enchantments etc (which I definitely can't!)

You need nothing but will and intent. Everything else is just a representation and focusing of that will and intent.

Well put. :)

Me? I Have an altar, albeit a minimalistic one. I have two candles (one blue for the god, and one purple for the goddess), an offering bowl / divination bowl / cauldron (all in one) and a chalice. Since that's all I can afford until my next paycheck, it suits me fine.

Use as little or as much as you like, it's all like the poster I quoted said.

:D
