Well, there's a few celebrations coming up, you could use them to make a wreath or a pentagram. Take a few younger branches from the trees that you like best or that work for the occasion you're planning for (make sure you ask the tree first and thank it!) soak them overnight in water, then shape an...

Welcome and Merry Meet, Zed! Here's my answers to your questions one at a time: 1) Beeswax is the best, but that's expensive. Any material will be fine. 2) You can use a basic taper for most candle spells. You should cleanse it before use, though, to remove residue energies. 3) If you repeat somethi...

Lucky :) I've heard that wood from a tree that was struck by lightning is powerful for healing and protection.

I never cast spells from a book or website (though sometimes they have good ideas that I consider when I write mine). The components that are used in a spell are, in my opinion, more to put you in the right mindset than to cast the spell themselves. The most important part of a spell is your own foc...

I know it's a learning step... I'm guilty of it repeatedly ;)

It's a friendly warning. I wanted to make him aware that he should swallow what he chews before shovelling in too much more food! And yes, good point. There's a whole forum of this stuff :)

Have confidence in yourself, if you're particularily worried concentrate on an extra wards or shield or something. Prepare ahead of time by keeping things organized around you and keeping good relations with the people you spend more time with. Just set the pace so the road ahead is less bumpy and y...

Question: How many things are you concentrating on at once, here? I'll happily help you with what I know on this subject, but you've been asking for a LOT lately. Knowledge and information are great things, but make sure you're understanding what you're collecting and not just grabbing up random occ...

Why wouldn't you? One of the main reasons to cast a circle is to preserve and contain the power you raise within it. When you release the circle, you also release the power. It has nothing to do with the type of magic you cast.

I'm glad you feel good. Here's hoping your spell did what was needed. A quick note on grounding: actually a lot of people do it. The high you can get after working with magic and energy is wonderful (and addicting, at times!) but just like drugs you can burn out pretty hard. If you start feeling tir...

Experience, research, grounding, protection, practice.

I'm hardly against contacting dead relatives if the need arises, but if you love and respect her try not to make a half assed attempt and don't do it 'Just cause'.

The first site I visit now and then. I don't know about the spells (I never take spells from websites, they don't mean anything to me) but it's information isn't that bad and it has a great humor section... The second one I haven't visited before. I'll point above for my view on the spells but I'll ...

All the witches bottle recipes I've heard of call for urine, nails and all sorts of sharp and nasty things. This seems like a 'light' version.

Stella, there are a lot of stones (most, in fact) that can be reproduced in ways such as what Juniper mentioned. Some are made completely synthetically (a lot of agates and quartz are like that) That doesn't mean they can't be found naturally though. So, you have to check around and do some research...
