Re: Questions about spirit guides

I read a post by Snowcat on here once that was super helpful to me. I didn't understand it at the time, but the short of it was that she believes certain spirits can stay with you and choose to help you. At the same time she could tell when a spirit that was watching over her had moved on and chosen...

Re: How many of us on here are "empaths"?

I'm really interested in this. I've taken a lot of Empath tests, and almost always I get results saying that I need to take care of my second chakra, and that I need to pay attention to who I am healing unconsciously. I don't know what either of those things mean. Chakras and spirit healing are two ...

Re: Different ways to cast a circle?

I use a silk rope. It's 3 braided strands almost 1/2 inch thick. I found it at a thrift store for $2. It was a window dressing originally. The rope was cleansed and consecrated and I sit I close it around me either sitting or standing. It makes a 6 foot circle when closed and I can move my arms arou...

Re: Your path?

My Family built 3 churches. Baptist Churches. I started reading the bible when I was very young. I was fascinated by religion from an early age and I had questions. People interpreted my questions as lack of faith and I was slowly turned toward atheism as a way to deal with my unwillingness to simpl...

Re: Question about lightning?

It's still open for interpretation.
It has been one of my favorite discussions though.

Re: Songs You Can't Get Out of your Head

This happened to me recently. I just kept hearing this riff in my head and it was driving me nuts. Many of my coworkers are musician hobbyists who play in cover bands so I turned to one of them and sang the riff. dheere dheere dheere dheere dheere,,right but with pretty accurate notes. He couldn't p...

Re: Question about lightning?

I have a different perspective.

Fire is actually not an element and "spark" is the element that fire gets credit for.

Lightning is 'plasma' which is an electron fire.

Literally no one else shares in this theory with me. :-)

External Locus Witch

This just popped in my head and I would like to hear opinions. Can you be an External Locus Focused Witch? So if you don't know, simply External Locus Focus means you believe all things in your life happens TO YOU. Internal Locus Focus means you believe that all things in your life happen BECAUSE OF...

Re: Do I need to be initiated?

I'm starting to wonder if the stream of bad luck I'm having is because I did a ritual before dedicating myself. When did you learn about dedicating yourself? Before or after you started practicing? First I'd ask that you really take some time to contemplate luck in your cosmology. I've never believ...

Re: What does this mean?

There is a bacterial parasite known as Phytoplasma, which can turn a plant into a host and mimic the plant being "alive" but the plant itself is no longer functioning and cannot produce flowers, pollen, or fruit any more. If you see this consistently then you may have an infestation of phytoplasma t...

Re: Passion Panacea

I would commit to some consistency rituals. Devotionals and dedications to help me stay the path, and make the best choices for myself. Sympathetic requests from ancestors or deities who have a benevolent nature and are willing to lend some energy to your path in the long term. Just small requests c...

Re: Passion Panacea

I feel that love spells are a wasted effort. This is only my opinion so don't be discouraged. This is just information for consideration. If believe that the Universe isn't random, then there are points in time that are influenced by forces other than causality and action/reaction. If you accept tha...

Re: Dreams turning back

Hi SL. Thanks for sharing. I have a similar event. I thought for many months that it was a dream. I believe now that it was actually my labyrinth. It is a place that is shared by my ancestry, my family, through the ages. I have come to believe that all people have a place like this. Mine was also st...

Re: New home rituals

Congratulations! A lot depends on the home. Apartment? A house? Do you own or rent? For protection I did Iron. At the 4 corners of the property I pushed an Iron Horse nail into the ground. You have to find a store that still sells real Iron nails. That's why we chose nails for shoeing horses. Said a...

Re: The use of hallucinogens in Wicca

On the historical side of ritual and ceremonial magic for religious purposes hallucinogenics would not be recommended. The incantations and prayers can be 200-300 words long and must be repeated for an hour or more over and over. Then all of the participants who have a role, usually 3-6 people have ...
