Re: Why a Year and a Day?

A year and a day, also known as 'the year and a day rule' has ancient origins and had common usage in law / establishing legal status until it was repealed in 1996. As other societal rituals also carried certain terms of limitation (handfasting perhaps?), it wouldn't be a stretch to assume that it w...

Re: Europe magical sites

I have oodles of books on sacred places and sacred sites but have only visited so many. Never forget, anywhere can be magical, especially in the artists 'magical times', the blue hours (twilight) and golden hours (post dawn and pre-sunset) or illuminated by firelight or candle light - anywhere with ...

Re: Insomnia

OK... Insomnia. Try head tapping? The general use is when you are semi-conscious, and drowsy, tap on your head the number of hours you want to sleep. You can however be crafter then that. While in that drowstly semi-lucid state, while tapping on your head state a request such as (starting simply) 'h...

Re: Insomnia

There used to be a website called 'Flames Firepit' which had thoughts and ideas that had a huge influence on me developing my early practice - sadly it seems all lost to Internet history :( Michael Howard is my unsung hero. He produced a little slim unassuming book called 'the prediction book of pra...

Re: Insomnia

. loL, Corbin meet Korbin! We have a pretty good reading list here. https://everythingunderthemoon.net/forum/viewforum.php?f=154 Some would consider the books of Crowley to be, umm...extreme. Be gentle on yourself as these layers become revealed to you, take it slowly and digest as you go along. BB...

Re: Insomnia

Dunno, the only weird physical thing that happens to me occasionally as I am half asleep is tripping. No, not in the chemical sense .. but actually tripping over in a light dreamstate. My legs going into the phantom twitch pantomime of recovery. Apparently it's known as a Hypnic jerk or hypnagogic j...

Re: Wiccan vs. Witch

I certainly think we can safely thank Wicca and Cochranes craft for setting those dogs running in in the Western world. I see nothing objectionable about that but have witnessed many arguments spring up when ideas challenge people's world views. It would be remiss not to nod my head to centuries of ...

Re: Cannot practice my craft in current home

(personal thoughts) I guess there are probably many in a similar situation. I would say 'Would it harm?' Your associations, your circumstances or indeed you . Harms a big word - even hurt feeling is harm to a lesser or greater degree. Don't put yourself in harms way. Tolerance is a two way street bu...

Re: So, If you get baptized, you can't go back?

Perhaps in my previous post would be better phrased 'religion is a personal choice (or a belief system). My mother was raised a Lutheran but has more faith in her makeup then religion. My parents always believed religion was a personal choice as adults and never pushed it on their children. I did th...

Re: Shadow work

Personal thoughts only - I can only comment on my own ideas, feelings and experiences (something we must all agree with). 1) Hinduism is not Witchcraft. 2) Not everyone is ready for Shadow-work / it is not suitable or even necessary for everybody. It is said that there are many paths to enlightenmen...

Re: Your daily/evening rituals?

I would often in the past use a variation of Starhawks tree grounding meditation and have internalised many of those key visualisations and processes for grounding that I still used and are relevant below. It's a good place to start. LINK https://youtu.be/FP5F5y0xUhQ I also practice energy work to s...
