Oh! Hey, I've read that book.
ravenwhite wrote:SpiritTalker, I have wrestled with this for a VERY long time. I have created an altar, and I am studying the elements. I see them as manifested energy, not as individual gods. I am very interested in folk magic, and I am trying to learn some simple spells and rituals to kind of get started. there is so much information. In addition to this I am still trying to reconcile casting spells, witchcraft and being a christian. I think I am pretty much there but I am very open to any informtion that would continue to support this
Studies - Take it deeper & make it personal by journaling about what you do
. You've made a personal altar -
. You're studying the elements of matter -
. There are elemental-beings comprised of their own element. It's been shown by a Japanese scientist Masaru Emoto that water has memory https://duckduckgo.com/q=emoto+water+cr ... d&ia=about
. You’re aware of land spirits who dwell in geographic locations & have intelligence & limited will -
. I recall a comment made by Janet Farrar in an interview re: the rituals in her books : "Oh I don't use those. I just write that for other people."
That's when I stopped memorizing gawd-awful long addresses to the mighty & dread lords of the watchtowers & relaxed.
