Re: What don't you like about your path? And what do you lik

I love that it feels comfortable and natural to explore, and that the few tools and symbols I utilize can be hidden in plain sight. I dislike that there doesn't seem to be a reliable way to mark progress. For example, even if you do everything correctly, there's still no guarantee that a spell will ...

Re: What is the point of precognitive dreaming ?

Precognition of any kind is a puzzler to me. I used to think you could rely on an intuitive hit if it: 1) came out of nowhere/ had nothing to do with what you're doing or thinking at the moment, 2) was highly specific, and 3) carried an emotional punch. I have since been proven wrong. I have also go...

Re: Group dynamics

I like Rosie's idea of balance too! You could use many different metrics to determine how a group is balanced; it makes sense, considering the forum in which we're discussing this, to use zodiac signs to start with. You can always adjust for other factors as you go, as other aspects of people's pers...

Re: Group dynamics

Nonetheless we are still avoiding the analysis of group dynamics. It was said that even these rock bands all were formed the similar fashion when composed of 4-5 people... you know, some being more dominant, others less so and the whole dynamics would always fit who played which instrument. {...} I...

Re: return to send spells

Try doing a mirror-box spell. This trick is different than hexing or cursing, because it reflects back, rather than originates, intentional or unintentional harmful thoughts, assaults and magick thrown against someone. Ooh, Googling that ^ right now! Thank you. I LOVE the idea of Return to Sender s...

Re: Mixed Signals

Has anyone ever felt overwhelmed by imagery that could suggest a God/Goddess is calling to you? I was lying in bed the night of the full moon in September of last year(!) when I got called to this path by Inanna. I've moved along the fringes of witchcraft for many years, so the revelation itself wa...

Re: How to deal with doubt?

^ITA, ThunderFog! Unfortunately, I have a tendency to over think, which probably gums things up. I just wish whatever energies we work with would, in their infinite wisdom, find a way to understand what it's like to be a temporal being. It's all well and good to say "in the Universe's own time and w...

Re: How to deal with doubt?

I so hope ^this^ is true. I'm "new" to this in a lot of ways myself, with lots of questions (most of them half-formed at this point) and a serious lack of people to talk with about them. One minute I think I've found an exciting new way of being, the next I wonder if I'm just going nuts!

Soitenly! :lol: And thank you for your list up top there. I've never seen >1 color indicated for a specific property, and love that kind of versatility. That's how we roll, right?

Re: How did you know which path was for you?

Agree, and I also realize I was a little nebulous in my description above. The kind of reflection I was referring to is more along the lines of protection, up to and including Return to Sender-type work. :flyingwitch:

Re: How did you know which path was for you?

My natural/inherited talent is for healing. However, the nature of my formal Calling earlier this year carried a strong element of reflective work needing to be done. Balancing the two won't be an issue once I've explored this newer aspect, but for now I'm more about the latter kind of work.

Re: YOUR Book of Shadows

So far, my BoS is more of a journal than anything: insights, dates and details of a Working, etc. But I am just getting started in proper witching and, at this point at least, don't have much emphasis on my BoS' place in that aside from as a simple record book. Maybe that will change over time, but ...

Re: Candle Colors

On brown candles: They can also pertain to (an) animal/s. It seems like that property is mentioned about half the time when brown candles are included in a list of colors, but that's the one that inspires me to have a few in my stash! >^..^<

Re: Pendulum

I want so badly to be a pendulum fan. I love that working with one is simple and straightforward, with definitive answers (unlike the ones you most often get from working with the aether). But no matter how calm and focused I am, no matter whether I cobble together a pendulum or use a store-bought o...
