it's time to get back to nature

Nature and magic is all around us. Within us. Everywhere. The power of the seasons, the ebb and flow of the tide, the land, sun, sea, stars, moon. It is time to get back to basics. It’s time to go back to nature.

What are Spells and Spellcraft?

Spells and spell craft are just one type of magic and this kind is very personal as it harnesses and releases your inner personal power and energy. It is just the same as a prayer.  You want something to happen and therefore you are thinking with intent.

You will see on in books literally thousands and thousands of spells for one thing or another but the best spells are always the ones you write yourself (or at least adapt in some way!).

A traditional witch practises magic everyday, casting spells is just ‘something we do’.  Just like Christians would ‘pray’ or children ‘make a wish’, these are just the same ideas with different names.  We all, no matter what you call it, want something to happen.  Because we do not follow any dogma or rede (unlike Wiccans for example) we will do whatever we feel is needed for any particular situation and take responsibility for our own actions.  A spell is not bad or good (or black or white), it is the caster who wields the intent and therefore the caster who has the power to sway the spell one way or another.

However, you need to think about what you want to get from the spell.  Remember the old saying “be careful what you wish for”.  This is very true for spells. Maybe you have written a spell to banish debt or to bring money your way. Have you thought about how that money may come to you?  Someone may die and leave you an inheritance. You have to really think about what you want, how you could get it and if you really need what you are asking for at all.

Spells can be as long or as short as you want or need them to be. They can be flamboyant or simple, easy to do or require a full ritual. It is up to you, there are no hard and fast rules to witchcraft, you do what you need to do at any given time.  As I said before, magic is a part of you, you can decide how and when you use it.

The one thing spells should have, and should also be given, the same with magic, is respect.  Don’t be fooled in thinking that all you are doing is making a flippant request. Spells work, magic happens. Be careful what you wish for….

Well Bless Be, you are a little ray of sunshine! Love everything you’ve got going on here. Just wish you weren’t so far away. I have been looking for quite some time for a reliable source of quality goods. If I’m ever in your neighborhood I will definitely stop in.

Wonderful article I am so glad you reminded people that we must take ownership of qhat we do or intent and spells. I have so often cautioned people to be careful of what they wish and be doubly carefure that you can control what you open…

Low Carb Keto BBQ Spice Rub Mix Recipe

We adore BBQ’s in this house, but if you pick up any pre-made BBQ spice mix or sauce in your local supermarket you will see one of the largest ingredients in all of them is sugar. Not great if you are diabetic or following a low carb keto diet. So why not try my version! It tastes just as good and even gives the same charred effect that sugar does when it caramelises on heat.
