But if a friend asks you to do magic with it, by all means.
Beorc Kano recently put up a post requesting the use of candle magic by other people, in which he outlined the process by which he would perform this particular act.
I, as usual, have an alternate but effective approach. With Beorc's permission, I am still joining into this purpose using my alternate approach.
My Lessons on Wiccadom
* The following are lessons I have prepared for students under my own wing. I teach up into the level I feel I am at present. You assume I do not fit the judgement you have placed upon me as a teacher but I am quite aware of my maturity and experience as a Wiccan. This is meant to spark…Continue
As some of you may know, I have a fairly specific and designated praxis of my own shaping. (Those who don’t know what I’m referring to can check my other blog here). However, it seems that new parts want to emerge or add themselves to it.
What am I talking about? My practice related to Hekate, that’s what. Until recently, this part of my path and overall praxis was fairly loose and “whatever goes”. Nothing really specific…Continue
Over much time, I have learned,and still continue to learn.
Yet I recall, when, learning and seeking left me torn....
Caught between two worlds.
For those now travelling behind me,I wish you blessings.
For the path you seek, is not…Continue
Is it true?
Questions are asked, over and over again...For time, has not changed the opinion of many, nor how they view "a witch". Automatically, they are thinking of the visuals seen on the…Continue
So, after taking some of the amazing advice three lovely ladies gave to me in various responses on my last blog, I felt compelled to meditate. Now, when I personally do this, I like to light a few candles and lately I have been hitting up my sage smudge stick like there is no tomorrow. Also, sometimes, when I am trying to work on a certain part of my meditation, like my awareness during that meditation, I'll pick a candle and carve my magical name on to it with my magical knife. For my…Continue
Hei. Minun nimeni on Arianne Nudaan. Asun Kentucky. Olen kaksikymmentaviisi vuotta vanha. (<---Finnish. Still learning!)
So anyway... I have been in a weird mood lately. Do you ever just take a deep breath and feel... Pagan? That sounds weird but every time I say it I just "get it." It's like I've just felt very at peace with the universe and the knowledge that my heart and soul are rooted to the Gods and the earth. I know I am Pagan and just feel connected to that…Continue

YAY! After almost 6 months of living in Missouri with newfound relatives who have restricted my every move, telling me that I live under their roof so I no longer have the right to choose my own religion, preventing me from getting a job or talking to anyone back in England, I am finally moving out. My long distance boyfriend of 4 years has invited me to come live with him in Maryland. :) I can't wait to see him again. I leave in 12 days!
Not too many people know about this…Continue
So I thought that I would give you all some wonderful news, I got the job that I had been interviewing for! I start next Friday and I am so ready to begin, but on the other hand, I find some hesitation still nagging at me and I kind think I know why, but as always (in my usual fashion) I find a reason to think of any other reasons why I am being prodded with the self-doubt stick.
First of all, I feel like no one is really going to miss me at my old…Continue
I have read a lot of really great discussions on here and I wish i could leave a comment. I feel that I don't know enough yet to really say anything. I know that knowledge will come in time and in learning. I find everything to be very informing. I do know that i am new to this path and I am seeking to learn as much as possible and i definitely know i am in the right spot for that.
The mist slowly grew, hiding the water's reflection of all that surrounded it.
The sound of silence, magnified the gentle lapping of the water upon the shore.
As the mist rose, the maiden saw the watchtowers being engulfed within its thickness.
The majestic towers of old, slowly appeared to fade from view.
The maiden stood at the water's edge, looking far beyond the mist, ever watchful.
Some would have thought, her lost within the mist and dark of…Continue
I have found a place where others are just like me in same ways,
A place where I can be just me,
No lieing,Just me.
I found a place where people come and reach out a hand to help not just me,but others as well,
To guide me,to show me the right way or point me in the right way,
A place I have call a second home.
I have made friends that are so close to me, I don't just call them friends.
I call them my family.

Self doubt, skepticism, denial, fear, overexertion, impatience and being too serious will all work against you in mastering psychic empathy (or any other psychic ablitity for that matter).
There are three milestones that every empath needs to reach before becoming more controlled. As far as how long it takes will vary from person to person, depending on how much resistance, fear and impatience there is, but don't despair, give up or stress yourself too much in this achievement. It…

The Psychic Empath
The analogies of those who are empathic are described as being a psychic sponge and/or their psychic is always *on*. In other words the door to an empaths psychic seems to be always left open.
Just as it depletes energy to leave a light or applicance always on, so too having ones psychic always on is a depletion of personal energy. You would not leave your house door left open for…
I've often said that I believe magic to be more than a mere placebo effect. Since that is the case, it might seem odd to some of you that I'm writing a blog entry about the "suspension of disbelief" and its place in magic and ritual work, but keep reading and it should begin to make sense.
When we start out, it may seem odd to many of us that by the mere power of our will we can effect change in ourselves, our surroundings, and the world. This, I believe, is mainly because…Continue
I am a member of The Shield of Light organization based in England and we
are seeking new members.
If you join, you would be considered a probationer for the first few months and would receive strictly white magic teachings:
Training with similarities to Wicca (although we don't call ourselves Wiccans-) but with strong elements of theTraditional Craft. We existed since the beginning of 1960 and originally based on the Cotsworld..
