Don't see the question you are looking for? Ask us:

Question:


  1. Is energy something I gain by performing spells and mediation?(top)
    Spells require energy to cast them. Prior to casting a spell one will need to gather energy and then redirect the energy into the spell to cast it.

  2. Are Chi and Magick related?(top)
    Yes, they are related. They can be viewed as different aspects of the same thing with key differences. Magick is a very wide umbrella term meant to cover most of non-physical (subtle) reality.

  3. Are Demons real?(top)
    It really depends on your upbringing and what you believe in personally. One person may see Thor or Isis as demons, but to another person, they can be personal deities. So in essence yes they are real, and at the same time, no they aren't.

  4. Are Faeries and Fairies the same?(top)
    These are different spellings for the same mythological creature.

  5. Are Faries Real?(top)
    Yes they are real and if you summon one please be careful. They can be tricky and enjoy messing with you although they can be helpful as well. Faries are earth spirits, the essence of the earth. They take on a form that you are most comfortable with.

  6. Are Psychic Vampires real?(top)
    Yes those are actually real. The other kind though are not.

  7. Are Witches real?(top)
    Indeed they are, but not as Hollywood and fantasy often portray them. Witchcraft is simply another form of magical practice that is often tied to the natural world all around us. Witches can be either male or female.

  8. Are all Moderators notified about the new members on the site?(top)
    No. There really is noway for the Moderators to be notified due to the fact there are always new people joining the site.

  9. Are all of the spells on the site bad?(top)
    The spells on this site are not all bad. It is up to the person casting the spell as to what the outcome is. It depends on the intent of the caster. There are some spells that have been written that are not real. It is up to you to decipher which ones are real or not. Anything that sounds far-fetched usually is a fake one.

  10. Are immortal Vampires real?(top)
    No they are not real. The concept of the immortal vampire was drawn from the medieval misunderstanding of the normal processes of death and from legends about Vlad Teppish, a medieval ruler of Romania. But they are simply fantasy, nothing more.

  11. Are love spells dangerous?(top)
    They can be. Some backfires include obsession and depression.

  12. Are love spells for beginners who know the basics?(top)
    I would not mess with Love Spells because it forces one to do something agenst their own will. When mess with will there will be consequences. I would suggest maybe having a soul mate brought near that way your not affecting 1 person.

  13. Are magic rings available on this site?(top)
    The site shop offers many kinds of rings. Some are made with and of stones, which hold properties on their own.

  14. Are magic shields real?(top)
    Shields in the magical sense are a form of energy barrier you create to prevent negative energies from reaching you. Used in this fashion they are very effective. However, shields will not protect you from a physical attack by another person.

  15. Are potions real?(top)
    Yes

  16. Are sirens real, and can you become one?(top)
    No, sirens are not real. You cannot become one. Our body physically restricts us from being anything but human. We cannot change our DNA.

  17. Are some people more drawn to magic than others?(top)
    Yes. Some people have a much easier time at being able to feel and sense the unseen powers of the universe. Different religions and cultures call this power different things, but in the occult word the simple word 'magic' will do. People who can more easily interact and feel this power are often more drawn to magic and that way of life.

  18. Are there any protection spells?(top)
    There is a whole section of Protection Spells here on this site at http://www.spellsofmagic.com/spells/spiritual_spells/protection_spells/page.html

  19. Are there any spells to change the sex of a person?(top)
    No, you can not change your physical self like this through magic alone.

  20. Are there limits to magic?(top)
    Of course! Magick cannot do everything. As people, we have limitations. There are limitations with magick as well. Magick tends to go along with natural laws and science: You will never be able to break the laws of physics, alter yourself physically, turn into mythical creatures, etc. That is all fantasy.

  21. Are there spells which can change your age?(top)
    There are spells on this site which claim to have the ability to change the age of the caster, however, these are filed appropriately under the fantasy section of the site. As with anything in the realms of fantasy, they are present solely for the purpose of entertainment, and not as a true reflection of the capabilities of magic.

  22. Are there teachers on this website that can help you? If so what do we do or where do we got to find them?(top)
    Most people on this website will not take someone as a student. Magick really cannot be taught properly except face-to-face. However, many of us will be more than happy to answer specific questions you might have on magical subjects.

  23. Are wands available on this site?(top)
    Yes, they are available in SoM's online shop.

  24. Are wands real?(top)
    Yes wands are real, they can't do the things from Harry Potter or likewise any other movie or show but they are real.

  25. Are your spells weaker when you are sick?(top)
    Yes, when your energy is down then you also have less energy to give a spell. You also don't want to use all your energy to cast a spell when you are sick because it might make you more ill.

  26. Can Demons be attracted to a caster by working Magick?(top)
    Everyone eventually gets noticed by someone on the astral, not just demons (and this includes views of demons from all pantheons). There are ways to go less noticed and one of them is to tap into a more vast energy, such as nature's, and use that with a small trace of yourself.

  27. Can I attract one person to only me?(top)
    Not entirely. You can definitely attract them, but free will applies, so that other person can change their mind at anytime.

  28. Can I be a Satanist and still practice Wicca and witchcraft(top)
    A Satanist can certainly practice Witchcraft as Witchcraft is simply a form of magic. However, the beliefs and practices of Satanism and those of Wicca are vastly different. One cannot truly be both.

  29. Can I become a demon?(top)
    No, you cannot. You are a human and you will remain as one.

  30. Can I become a fairy?(top)
    No, you cannot become a fairy.

  31. Can I become a mermaid?(top)
    No, you cannot. Mermaids are mythical creatures that don't exist in the physical world. Nor can magic or spells turn you into anything other than human.

  32. Can I become a vampire?(top)
    You can't become the type of vampire people see in movies since those are just fiction. There are psychic vampires that drain energy, though you don't become one.

  33. Can I become a werewolf?(top)
    Simply put, no you cannot. The tale of werewolves is based on medieval misunderstanding of several medical conditions. Werewolves do not exist. Nor can magic change your DNA or make you anything other than the human you already are.

  34. Can I breathe fire?(top)
    This is fantasy. No spell or ritual will allow you to breathe fire, as this is an impossible feat.

  35. Can I cast a spell for a specific purpose more than once?(top)
    You certainly can if you feel it will make it more likely that you will get the outcome you want.

  36. Can I cast more than one spell at a time?(top)
    Of course you can; you just have to be careful of spreading yourself too thin. To get around this, try doing one or a couple of spells with more than one focal point of intent.

  37. Can I change my username?(top)
    No, you cannot change your username. The only way to change a username is to delete your account and make another, or open up a new account as well as the one you currently have.

  38. Can I change the color of my eyes using spells?(top)
    A practitioner may use a glamor spell to change the color of their irises. Though bare in mind that this is only temporary and an illusion. Ultimately spells can not be used to make permanent changes to your physique.

  39. Can I control my dreams?(top)
    There is such a thing as lucid dreaming, in which the person is aware of their dreams and is able to manipulate it. I would suggest you look into this.

  40. Can I create my own spell?(top)
    Yes, anyone can create their own spells if they have an understanding of magick and how it works.

  41. Can I delete my account and make an account on the same email?(top)
    Yes.

  42. Can I die while doing a spell?(top)
    One could die when doing a spell, but it would not be because you are casting a spell. You could die of any number of medical issues, you could be struck by a car or by lightening, etc. But all of these have nothing at all with doing the spell. Spells are not going to kill you.

  43. Can I get free stuff from the online store?(top)
    You will receive a free bone charm for every $30 spent before shipping is calculated. Outside of that, no: you must pay for the things from the store.

  44. Can I help make a sick family member well without being with the person? (top)
    Yes, you can. Simply make sure that you clearly visualize the person that you want to heal and see them well and happy. Then you direct the energy of the spell to make what you see in your mind become fact.

  45. Can I learn magic even if I have no powers now?(top)
    Yes if you understand how to cast a magical working.

  46. Can I live chat using my cell phone?(top)
    There are so many different types of mobile devices and many of them handle certain technical aspects differently, making it difficult to ensure the live chat works on all devices. You can try to use the mobile site (the link is in the top right corner of every webpage). The chatter on the mobile version of the site is the most basic chatter available and should work for most devices.

  47. Can I pay using a debit card for items in the site shop?(top)
    We only accept payments for items in the site shop through PayPal and you will be prompted to sign into your PayPal account during the check out process. If you do not already have a PayPal account you can sign up for one. You can link any credit card, debit card, or bank account to a PayPal account. It is free to sign up for a PayPal account and it is free to use the account to make purchases over the internet. For more information about a PayPal account please visit; www.paypal.com

  48. Can I physically transform?(top)
    No, you cannot change into anything else. You are who and what you were born to be. Magick cannot alter how you look nor any ofthe sort .

  49. Can I play music while casting a spell to help create the mood for the spell?(top)
    You certainly may.

  50. Can I publish my own spells on this site?(top)
    Yes. To add spells to the site, you must be council in a coven. Some covens, such as Spell Casters, automatically place members in this position. Once council, you can add spells to that covens spellbook, and thus the site.

  51. Can I put my email address in my bio?(top)
    Personal information such a an e-mail address, phone number, physical address, etc. are not permitted on any public site page. This includes the forums, profile pages, public chat, as well as articles and spells.

  52. Can I send a money order to purchase items off this site?(top)
    No, the site store only excepts PayPal.

  53. Can I use chat on a 3ds?(top)
    Yes you can...go to the web browser and type in spellsofmagic.com in the search bar.

  54. Can a High Priestess destroy her own coven?(top)
    Well, she can certainly let the coven fall to ruin or let it fall apart, but as far as deleting it on this site, no. In a real life coven depending on the tradition she may dissolve the coven at any time

  55. Can a female be promoted to Priest?(top)
    I believe if your account says you are "female" you cannot be promoted to priest. You could change your gender on the profile, and see if that works. If it doesn't, the priestess could always contact the admin and express the desire to have the member promoted and he should be able to do so.

  56. Can a person be haunted by the same spirit no matter where they are?(top)
    It depends on the situation. Although some spirits are stationary, we might see them in our dreams if we are sleeping in a different location.

  57. Can a person cast spells in the Afternoon?(top)
    Yes you can cast your spell anytime it feels right to you. You may want to check you calendar for moon phases. Moon phases have a magical effect on spells depending on the spells.

  58. Can a person really grow wings?(top)
    No. That is physically impossible.

  59. Can a spell help increase my height?(top)
    If you're still physically able and growing in height, then just let your body take care of growing. Otherwise, what you can do is wear shoes that can raise your height; such as platform boots or high heel shoes.

  60. Can a spell make me immortal?(top)
    No, sorry. You cannot become any other species through any means.

  61. Can an inccubus get you pregnant?(top)
    No, it cannot. An incubus is not a physical being so it cannot cause physical changes in you. But it can drain you of energy, than cause a chain reaction of blockages and leaks to your chakras. They can even effect your aura.

  62. Can any magic or spell be reversed?(top)
    If you mean a spell or hex/curse if you know what your doing than yes you can.

  63. Can anyome turn me into a vampire?(top)
    No. There is no way magical or otherwise to become a vampire as vampires do not exist.

  64. Can anyone use Magic?(top)
    Anyone may learn witchcraft which consists of knowledge that may be gathered and skills that can be developed,

  65. Can chronokinesis ware off?(top)
    Yes.

  66. Can demons be seen with the naked eye?(top)
    Demons are spiritual entities, and like other spiritual entities they reside on the spiritual plane and cannot be seen with the naked eye; simply because they are not physical beings.

  67. Can incense be used instead of oil?(top)
    It depends on the use of the oil. If it is purely for the herb used in the oil, then any form of the herb can be used. Do be aware that incense can be used to represent air, and if the herb is being used to represent something that does not agree with this in the spell work, it could be poorly applied and render undesired results. Please be cautious about using any herbs because some can be toxic. Always be sure to research ingredients thoroughly and handle with care.

  68. Can magic be cast without being tied to a religion?(top)
    Magic is the manipulation of energy. Though most religions utilize some form of magic or magical castings, religion is not necessary to manipulate energy. Though one's faith in the magic itself is key.

  69. Can masturbation and sex influence your magic negatively?(top)
    Yes, just like with any other magical practice, sexual activity in the form of magick can influence how your magick works. However, just like with the rest, this is souly dependant on you, your purpose of intent, and what kind of energy you put out. (as well as your partner, if there is one)

  70. Can performing magical work cause you to feel tired?(top)
    Casting any magical working requires energy. This is why one meditates prior to casting. It allows them to gather the energy needed to fuel the magical working. Just like other activities that require energy one may feel tired or drained after casting a magical working. If this occurs rest and refuel by grounding as well as eating something light.

  71. Can pictures be black and white when performing a spell?(top)
    Yes, they certainly can.

  72. Can someone get gagged even if they didnt break any rules?(top)
    No. Noone will get gagged for no reason. To be gagged, You must have done something.

  73. Can someone send ones guardian angel to another person elsewhere for any reason? (top)
    You can not force it but you can ask your guardian to see if they can

  74. Can toxic dreams be prevented?(top)
    Yes. The simplest methods include dream catchers or dream pillows, but are not limited to that. Meditation is a good method of controlling your dreams.

  75. Can we ask questions that we already know the answer to, to expand FAQs and help new members?(top)
    If you would like, I see no problem in doing that. However, I did not make the FAQs, but like I said, I see no problem in doing so, as long as you do not ask the same questions over and over and you keep a limit to how many questions you ask a day.

  76. Can we contact and see our guardian angels?(top)
    Try using meditation with the intent of contacting your guardian angel. You may well be able then to see your guardian in your mind. Guardian angels are spirit beings though so seeing them as a physical being isn't going to happen.

  77. Can what you eat effect a spell you plan to do later that day?(top)
    Possibly. Our health has an impact on our ability to cast working spells. So if your diet in unhealthy it may negatively impact your spells.

  78. Can you be in more than one coven?(top)
    No. One account can only be in one coven. If you decide you wish to join another coven you have to leave the one you are in.

  79. Can you become pregnant from the sex spells?(top)
    No, you cannot physically become pregnant from a spell unless sexual actions between you and another person occur.

  80. Can you believe in "God" and still believe in witchcraft?(top)
    Yes, you can believe in God and still believe and even practice witchcraft. You don't have to believe in any deity to believe and practice witchcraft. Witchcraft is but a practice and way of life. The same for being a witch, but Witch is also a self proclaimed title.

  81. Can you bring an animal back to life?(top)
    Personally, I do not believe it can be done with magick. Maybe by some form of resuscitation, yes, but that would be far from "accidental."

  82. Can you bring the dead back to life?(top)
    No, you can't. There is no way to bring someone back to life once they are clinically dead for over 10 minutes. No magic nor any medical means will accomplish this.

  83. Can you change someone else's spell (not completly but just enough to fit your needs)?(top)
    Absolutely. It is always better to write your own spells that are specific to your situation. But if you have to use someone else's spell then making some changes to make it more personal is the next best thing.

  84. Can you chat privately with someone on this website?(top)
    No, there are no private chat rooms

  85. Can you control a element?(top)
    You cannot control an Element, but you can and should learn to work with them in doing your magical workings.

  86. Can you create a fireball?(top)
    No, you cannot make a fireball. Regardless of if you have a source of fire or not. Magick does not work like Avatar the Airbender.

  87. Can you do both Black and White Magick?(top)
    There is no color in magick only intent.

  88. Can you do too many spells?(top)
    You can. You could use so much of your personal energy that you feel drained and ill when casting too many spells at one time. Or your spells might fail because your focus becomes too widely spread for the same reason. Try spreading your spellwork out over a longer period of time for better results.

  89. Can you fly on a broom?(top)
    No, you cannot fly period. That is fantasy and quite impossible. Remember Witches astral project not fly on broomsticks.

  90. Can you go to hell for doing magic?(top)

    You cannot physically move an object simply by thinking on it.

  96. Can you open your third eye without the need of meditation?(top)
    It is the only way that skilled magical practitioners use. We are all born with our third eye open. It is the lack of meditation as a baby and child that causes it to close. Some are lucky to make to through childhood without it closing all the way. No one can open your third eye for you. It opens when you take the time to practice opening it and then also closing it. For no one walks around all the time with there third eye 100% open. The average is about 60-75% open.

  103. Can you use spells over the phone?(top)
    Any form of communication may carry the energy generated by a spell or other magical working. The directed energy may travel via the phone or other communication device.

  104. Candle are required for many spells. Can a candle be put out and relit or do they have to burn out by themselves? (top)
    There are two main ways to work with candles while casting a spell. The first is to burn an anointed/charged candle completely or until the candle burns itself out naturally. You can snuff the candle out and relight it if you need to or want to. Some candle spells are preformed over several consecutive nights/days where the candle is only burned for a specific period of time at each sitting. The other main way to use a candle in casting is to light the candle after it is anointed/charged and then after more energy is raise by letting it burn, you blow the candle out. The most common spell preformed this way is at a Birthday. The candles on the cake are lit, energy is raised as they burn in conjunction with the singing of the song Happy Birthday, and then as the Birthday girl/boy continues to think of their wish they blow the candles out.

    Yes

  112. Do O.B.E.s involve any risks?(top)

    They do work, but I would suggest you stay away from them. They do let evil threw and are almost impossible to get rid of.

    Every religion has their own beliefs and approaches to magic, based on their location, personal beliefs and cultural influences. Magic is the same across the board, but the acts to create the magic are different.

  117. Do different tones affect a spell?(top)
    Some intonations are specific in evocation and invocation (calling up and in, respectively). If you are generic in your spell-craft, the only difference it would make is by the by the energy you raise personally. If you are more specific (as in Hindu and Buddhist traditions), it will raise different types of balancing energies.

  118. Do enchantment spells work?(top)

    There is no such thing. No spell will allow you to fly, as it is physically impossible.

  122. Do mirrors affect magick?(top)
    Not really. But mirrors can be used as tools in magic. They can be used to reflect energy back at someone or for scrying, etc.

    This depends. The creatures you listed are considered fantasy. Now if you are talking about Fay creatures or beings they are considered earth spirits and to some in the craft real.

  124. Do psychic vampires have fangs?(top)
    No, they do not. They aren't truly vampires and they don't really need the energy of others to live. They are simply people who enjoy leeching the energy of others, or claiming to drain the energy of others. So-called psychic vampires are humans like all the rest of us.

  125. Do spells work?(top)
    Spells will work if you understand how and why magic works at all, and if you do the work to learn the necessary skills to cast spells successfully. Some spells on this site will never work as they are fantasy spells. And no spell is ever guaranteed to work 100% of the time.

You only need one person to cast a circle but a circle can be stronger if each person casts a ring.

    If you believe and take the time to learn the basics yes it will. Also do not ever doubt yourself or your work.

    Practice increases one's ability to cast magical workings. One becomes better at casting when they learn from a previous casting and then apply what they have learned to the next casting they do. To increase ones energy they must practice gathering and redirecting energy. Through meditation one can learn to gather and redirect energy.

  150. Does my menstrual cycle affect spell casting?(top)
    During your menstrual cycle casting magic can be more powerful. The blood it's self has magical qualities therefore when it is flowing so are the magical energies.

    Yes, although the coven does not require one until a member is added to the position.

  152. Does the air have enough energy to charge your body? (top)
    They body is charged with energy through the breath, but the body is not charged by the breath alone. The food one eats charges the body just as rest, relaxation, and sleep recharges the body. The sun charges the body with energy a well as many other natural items found in our environment. Our physical bodies require energy from multiple sources, removing just one can cause an imbalance of energy to occur.

  153. Does the flying spell work ?(top)
    No such spells as ones to let you fly or to grow wings are simply make-believe. Use common sense. Do you see people flying around in the sky without being in an airplane?

  154. Does the word 'omm' serve any properties in meditation?(top)
    It's a meditative sound, like a chant. Some people find that chanting helps them when attempting meditative or trance-like states. It isn't necessary, and it doesn't have any special properties. It may help you clear your mind easier if you focus on the chanting.

  155. Does your Element help with magick?(top)
    Yes, it does when you working with it.

  156. Does your age matter when becoming a witch?(top)
    We all have Magick inherent to us, even as kids. In fact, more kids realize their talents than adults do, though modern society doesn't accept anything more than science. The result is that many people do not believe in their own abilities.

  157. How do I reset my communnication limit?(top)
    Your limit rests every hour or so. If you hit the limit, stop mailing and give it an hour or two to reset. If you try to mail in this time, it will take it longer to reset. If it does not reset, and you cannot use the chatter/forums, it means you have been gagged.

  160. How can I awaken/enhance my hidden abilities?(top)

  162. How can I believe?(top)
    No one can help you believe, that is something that must come from within yourself. It's not always easy to believe in something that many others would consider make-believe, but try concentrating on what you feel in your own heart to be true.

  163. How can I check sent mails?(top)
    There is no feature to check sent mails at this time.

  164. How can I come out if the Broom Closet?(top)
    Two questions to ask yourself first; "Why do I need to make my personal beliefs public?" and "How are people likely to react when I tell them my beliefs?" No one needs to know what you believe but you. And often telling others causes all sorts of problems we don't want to deal with. But if you trust the person to be accepting then simply tell them.

  165. How can I create a Book of Shadows?(top)
    A Book of Shadows is essentially a witches journal. You can make a Book of Shadows from just about any notebook or workbook you have laying around, you could even keep a Book of Shadows digitally and have one on your computer.

    Meditations provides an effective way to connecting to your spirit animal. We use the term “meditation” is a loose way to designate means of relaxing and using active imagination to visualize and “journey inwardly”.

You may have reached the mailing limit. If this is the case clear out some of your default folder and wait about a hour to send mail again.

  190. How can you become a wizard and will the spells work better if you're a wizard?(top)

  191. How can you protect your job?(top)
    Well, the answer that nobody wants to hear is good old hard work. Make yourself valuable to your employer, so that they cannot afford to lose you. Of course, you probably want a magical answer to help safeguard your occupation in the tumultuous climate that goes on today. Unfortunately there is no guaranteed method to such magic. Magic works differently for everyone, and in every circumstance, and in matters like this it is next to impossible to predict every possible variable. However, creating something like a charm bag with tokens for money drawing, protection, good luck, and perhaps some talismans related to your job, or personal to your workplace, could be a good start in such endeavors. Empower it or "feed" it every so often, and keep it with you on your person. You could also keep it in a safe place, making offerings to it to help ensure tranquility and well being within your occupation. This is just one example, and there are many, many such spells that you might explore.

  192. How can you successfully meditate?(top)

  193. How can you tell if magic is white or black magic?(top)
    There is no color to magic. Magic is energy manipulation. Colors can help describe magical workings but most are very confused by the way in which different people describe it. A casters perception of what is good/bad, positron/negative, etc. tells what kind of magic they do. A darker caster will use ways that are not the most ethical to some to do their work that is even positive in nature. Just as a lighter caster my use there ethical ways to judge and harm another person. Magic is not good or bad but the perception of what people see things as can be.

  260. How do I make a Psi Ball?(top)
    Find a quiet place where you can relax. Sit and hold your hands out in front of you, palms together like you are praying. Rub your palms together to create a small amount of heat, then spread your palms apart by about a half to full inch. You should notice a change in the heat as you space your palms apart, if you lose the feeling just rub your palms together again and spread your palms apart again feeling the change in energy. Once you become attuned with the energy change, try pulling your palms apart another inch or so. As you pulled your palms apart or push them closer, you should feel as the energy changes. As you push your palms together you should notice that the energy is compressing. You can make a Psi Ball as big or little as you wish. You may also make it into what shape you desire, such as a Psi Square or brick. May take some practice and concentration. If you get frustrated, take a break and try again later.

  261. How do I make a familiar(top)
    One does not create a familiar. A familiar is a physical animal that willing helps one cast magical workings. This could be any animal and this animal will be the one to decide whether or not they want to be a person's familiar. The only decision the person is left with is to accept the animal as their familiar or not. To not accept an animal that has chosen you is quite rude and could result in never having another animal be willing to be ones familiar. A familiar will come when it is ready and when it is time for a person to have one. Forcing the issue is folly.

  293. How do I write my own spells, and how do I know if they worked effectively?(top)
    How to Write your Own Spells- First you need to consider what kind of spell you want to write. Will it be a rain spell, a protection spell, or maybe a healing spell? Once you've gotten down what kind of spell you want to do, consider your intent behind it. Do you want to make it rain because the plants are drying up? Do you know someone who is struggling and needs some protection? Or perhaps you want to help heal someone who is sick? Dig deep and really feel out the reasons behind why you want to do this kind of spell. You should ask yourself- Do I really need to cast this spell? Make sure your spell isn't going to harm others. Is it going to take away free will from someone? If your intentions are pure and not out of spite or hate, then you can proceed. The next thing you are going to wanna do is really consider if you want to use tools. If you do, what kinds of tools will you need? Every tool has an energy you can add to a spell, so consider them very carefully. At this time you may also wish to consider the use of herbs or stones as well, as they too are a type of tool. Remember that if you feel you don't need a tool, then don't use one. Once you know what materials you are going to use, if you desire to use any at all, you can move on to a moon phase, or a day of the week, colors, gods and goddesses etc... Or you can choose not to use one at all. Now is the time to also consider, how fast do you want the spell to work, and what exactly you want the outcome to be. Now comes the fun part. You have all the basic criteria down. You can now start working on the actual writing of the spell. Remember that when you write your own spells, you put your own energy into them, and these will work better because of that. (This same technique can also be used for rewriting other spells that you may find). Once you have the spell written you are ready to plan a basic outline for casting. Here's one you can use to help you (this is based on the use of a candle, and remember this is only an outline, that means it's just here to give you a rough idea) 1/ Casting the spell on the day and in the moon that is needed 2/ Annointing a candle (of which colour you would have found out in the step above) with oil and herbs (which you also found out in the step above). 3/ Then lighting the candle and saying a rhyme, chant or verse to the god or goddess you are calling upon statung exactly what you want the outcome of the spell to be. 4/ Putting your hands over the candle (not so you burn yourself) focus your energies into the candle envisioning them as a bright white light which will power the spell. 5/ Then you have the choice of blowing the candle out a burrying the remaining or letting it burn down completely which will send the spell out into the universe. 6/ Finish the spell by saying: With harm to none, So mote it be. (or something along these lines) You should write the whole spell out as above exactly how you plan on casting it, so you have it in front of you and there will be no mistakes when it comes to casting it for real. Don't forget to cast your circle before the spell, or remove it afterwards.Just make sure you are working in a clean area and cleanse the room of negativity before hand by sprinkling some salt water around and keeping a bowl of salt in the room to absorb negative energies. Smudging is also a good idea! Dont forget most spells unless specified in it will take anything up to 21 days to manifest although most work quickly if the need is great. How to make them work- Once you have the Spell you want written up and ready to go. Look back and plan out the day based off your correspondence data that you want to cast the spell on. If it?s a full moon, then whenever the next full moon may be, or if it?s a Saturday Night, then the next Saturday night that you can work with undisturbed. For those who cast circles, you will be casting a circle, so follow the way that you normally do so. The more practice you get, and depending on the type of spell you are working, you won?t need the circle all the time. For these purposes though, we will use one. Make sure all your tools for the spell are on the altar and ready to go. You can bring the spell into the circle with you, you?ll want to take notes on the feelings and impressions you get after the spell is done. Do a quick double check and make sure everything is where it needs to be. If you like to mark out your circle do so, otherwise go ahead and cast the circle. You?re going to want to go ahead and raise energy once the elements and deity (if you chose to invoke them) have been invoked. You can raise energy by several means eg: Through singing, drumming, chanting, dancing and several other methods. Once you feel the energy is raised to a point where it can?t be raised anymore, then this is when you will focus and do the spell. While you are going through the motions of speaking the words, or tying knots in cords, etc, you are going to want to really see yourself doing it all in your mind?s eye. See the spell as being completed with every step you do, until you are finished. Once you are finished take a moment and really see in your mind what you want to have happen.( Remember the more energy, will and focus you put into a spell the more likely it will take effect.) Focus on this a moment then release the idea. Let it leave you and move on freely to the universe to start taking effect. Personally I like just writing everything down now, but you can clean up and then write your impressions. I find that if you write everything down right away while still in circle, you are more true to your feelings and impressions, and you won?t forget them so easily. After you cast your spell, you can go ahead and dismiss the elements, deity and the circle, Clean everything up and go about your business. Remember not to talk too much about the spell, as this causes it to looses momentum. A good example of how this works is when you are angry at someone. The more you talk about it, the less angry you get. It works the same way with spells. How to know they have worked- There are many subtle signs such as right after the spell takes effect you will get shivers, or a breeze will blow and you will just know. Basically if you think it is a sign, then it is a sign. When signs show they could be within a few minutes of performing a spell or 3 days, or even a month. Each sign for each spell and person is different. You just have to remain observant

  294. How do Voodoo dolls work?(top)
    Voodoo dolls are a form of sympathetic magic. You create a doll or poppet to represent the person that you want to have affected by the spell. Then whatever magical spell you do to the doll will theoretically have the same effect on the person that the doll represents.

    Learn all the basics first before you even think about casting a spell. I have them on my profile along with a link that will help you learn them.

    You start out by studying and reading until you know what Wicca is all about and you are sure that this is the religion you wish to follow. Then you begin practicing by celebrating the Esbats and the Sabbats and honoring the Lord and Lady. When you have done this for a year ask yourself whether this is what you truly believe in. If the answer is yes, then you can consider yourself to be Wiccan.

  302. How do you become a mod?(top)
    The administration decides who becomes a moderator. If the administration feels you should become a moderator you will be made a moderator. Asking about it is not a wise way to achieve it.

    First dont ask for it, kind of a rule of thumb. Second by proving you are worth making an editor. Post often and post reasonable forums nothing fluff.

  304. How do you better your focus?(top)
    I would suggest meditation and various techniques related to focusing (such as breathing patterns, chanting, etc). It's easier to focus as well when you have a sacred space, or a quiet area to focus in where you will not be disrupted.

    Most of the time, you can do any general reversal spell or uncrossing.

  307. How do you charge a stone?(top)
    Many believe that the easiest way to charge any stone or crystal is to take it back to where you got it from and leave it in the dirt for 24 hours. However there are many ways to accomplish this. 1.Hold the stone in your projective hand (usually the your dominant hand). 2.Visualize your need and feel the pouring of energy out from your body and into the stone. At this time please make sure that you are visualizing every aspect of your need not a general idea but feel what it would feel like to have that need fulfilled. 3.After your stone is charged you can carry it with you or place it in a safe place within your home, office, or wherever to let the energies flow. Also, it is important to always eat and have a moment after charging a stone.

  308. How do you charm/charge items?(top)
    By either blessing them with a ritual, or just having strong feelings towards the object. Blessing rituals differ a lot and there is no exact order or ingredient to it.

  309. How do you cleanse and charge stones/crystals?(top)
    There are a few different ways of cleansing. Washing the stones in salt water, burying the stones in the earth with salt over top of them and leaving them for several days, or you can place them in a fire to cleanse them however they may become damaged in appearance. To charge stones you can place them in the moon light for several nights, place them on an alter, pour your own energy into them, or leaving them next to an object that represents what kind of energy you would like to charge the stone with. Such as leaving the stone on the ground to absorb earth energy and moon energy, placing the stone on an alter next to a statue of the goddess, or hanging the stone in a tree by some hemp or other natural fiber so the stone can absorb energy from the air and the tree.

  310. How do you confirm friends?(top)
    To add a friend, go to that person's profile page. In their Friends section you are able to add them or remove them as a friend. You can also grant and revoke access to your personal photos. However, there is no notification system for when someone has added you. If you have added them, and they have not added you, they will appear under your unconfirmed friends list and only you will be able to see that. If you both add each other, you will both appear under each others confirmed friends list- which is public.

  311. How do you delete a spell?(top)
    You cannot delete a spell off this website. Only the admin can do such a thing.

  312. How do you find out your spirit weapon?(top)
    I'm uncertain as to a 'spiritual weapon', but most things like your power animal, element, etc., can be found through lucid dreaming, meditation, or simple discovery.

  313. How do you find your element?(top)
    A lot of people would say that you can find your element through several ways. Keep in mind it is thought that you can associate yourself with more than one element. Some easy ways would be to spend time with each element, meditate on them, and perhaps start a dream journal. "Your" element(s) are the ones you feel most comfortable working with.

  314. How do you finding your magical name?(top)
    Follow your intuition, a name that sounds "right". If you wish, ask your spirit guides to help you. Also, magical names are often indicative of your personality, goals, or understanding of magic.

  315. How do you get a title like "Experienced"?(top)
    I believe you refer to reputation. Reputation is a ranking of your contributions (spells/articles/forum posts) and how you are viewed by other members of the website. Ranks are: Beginner / Novice / Knowledgeable / Adept. If you have not been on the site for a significant time you may not yet have a rank.

  316. How do you get your deleted picture back?(top)
    If it's deleted, it's deleted. Your best option is to upload the same picture again, if you still have it saved on your computer, phone, or tablet.

  317. How do you know if a spell is real?(top)
    The best thing to do is use common sense. If it sounds too good to be true then it probably isn't. Spells under the "Fantasy" section on SoM are strictly fantasy spells. Use intuition and common sense when selecting a spell. You can also judge the spell's credibility by its rating.

  318. How do you know if somebody has requested to be your friend?(top)
    You don't unless they tell you that they added you. For this reason you should let people know when you add them as a friend, do not assume they are automatically informed.

    You will have the inability to chat, send messages or post in the forums.

  320. How do you know you have opened your third eye?(top)
    You will know when it is open. But in actuality, your third eye (and all the other chakras, for that matter) is already open. You just need to cleanse it of blockages and work on using the chakra.

  321. How do you know you're the leader of a coven?(top)
    On your profile page, it should say what coven your in. Below it, should say: "Coven title: Member". Or, when you are a Priest/ess of the coven you are in, it will change from "Member" to "Priest" or "Priestess".

  322. How do you locate your favorites?(top)
    Once you have added spells, articles, and/or forum posts to your favorite list you can access the list through your profile page. Simply click on the favorites tab located just above your profile picture.

  323. How do you make a smudge stick?(top)
    You create a smudge stick by wrapping twigs of fresh sage with a long piece of thread. Some people like to include sweet grass or lavender. Sage is used to clear the space and the sweet grass or lavender will fill the void with happiness. Here is a link to a YouTube video by Charming Pixie Flora on How to Make a Smudging Bundle http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4-8UW3EtrY&feature=share&list=PL8A7011EB14FA3551

  324. How do you make an Athame?(top)
    An athame can be carved from bone or wood or forged from metal. I think most people buy athames nowadays but it would be an awesome project to undertake and it would help imbue your own energy into the item, making it very personal.

  325. How do you make psi balls?(top)
    Find a quiet place where you can relax. Sit and hold your hands out in front of you, palms together like you are praying. Rub your palms together to create a small amount of heat, then spread your palms apart by about a half to full inch. You should notice a change in the heat as you space your palms apart, if you lose the feeling just rub your palms together again and spread your palms apart again feeling the change in energy. Once you become attuned with the energy change, try pulling your palms apart another inch or so. As you pulled your palms apart or push them closer, you should feel as the energy changes. As you push your palms together you should notice that the energy is compressing. You can make a Psi Ball as big or little as you wish. You may also make it into what shape you desire, such as a Psi Square or brick. May take some practice and concentration. If you get frustrated, take a break and try again later.

  326. How do you make spells?(top)
    You must learn to cast in order to cast a spells. Start with meditation and chakra work. Then move on to simple castings, such as a circle and shielding. Read as much as you can about the different forms of casting as well, such as candle magic. Visit Newbie central to help you get started as well. The Tips section has several good pointers

  327. How do you make yourself believe in magick?(top)
    I do not know that you can make yourself believe anything. For many it is simply a matter of faith.

  328. How do you post a new forum?(top)
    Go to the forums, then find a thread you wish to post in and click it. Once this is done, in the top right-hand corner it will say "start a new thread". Click this and write your article, then click submit.

  329. How do you put up a photo while using your iPhone?(top)
    The mobile site is limited in its functionality. Many of the profile options simply do not work on the mobile site at this time. Currently, you can not upload photos on a mobile device.

  330. How do you say yes to a friend request?(top)
    To become "friends" with someone on SoM, you and the other person must click "Add User as a Friend" located on the right of their profile.

  331. How do you see spirits?(top)
    You see spirits via your third eye.

  332. How do you send an e-mail to a person?(top)
    Go to the Profile page of the person to whom you wish to send an e-mail. On the left hand side of the page, above the picture, you will see a tab marked "Mail". Click on that tab and it will open a window to let you send the e-mail to that person.

  333. How do you send someone mail or a message if you just read their spell(top)
    Click on the name of the person you wish to contact and go to their profile. Once there click on the "Mail" tab above their picture. This will take you to a place where you can send an e-mail message to them. But be aware that many of the spells on here were posted by people who haven't been members here for a long time.

  334. How do you spot a werewolf?(top)
    Werewolves do not really exist. They are a creation of Hollywood and of fiction authors. The myth probably arose because there are some medical conditions which cause people to grow excessive body hair. But werewolves such as you see in movies are imaginary.

  335. How do you start magic?(top)
    Most people suggest you start with something called "the basics", which includes things such as meditation and grounding, etc. They can be learned through study and practice. I suggest looking through the forums and asking there. You can also join a coven to have someone available to help instruct in your study and practice. The articles, as well, serve to housing much of this information. If you need more help, there is always Newbie Central and the Tips page.

  336. How do you take down spells that you have posted?(top)
    You cannot take down a spell once it is posted. The only person who can remove spells from the site is Petrarca, the Site Administrator.

  337. How do you talk with a ghost without an ouija board?(top)
    Meditation is one way to communicate with spirits, or you could use one of the many different forms of divination. For Yes or No questions you wish to ask the spirit you can use a pendulum

  338. How do you tell the difference between a New Moon, Waxing Moon, Waning Moon and Full Moon?(top)
    The Moon Cycle begins with a New Moon and occurs during the Dark Phase of the moon cycle when there is very little moon visible in the night sky. The New Moon happens in the moments following the onset of the Waxing Moon Phase or when the Moon's reflective surface area is growing in size. Once complete the Moon is Full and the Waning Moon Phase begins which occurs as the Moon's reflective area dwindles or become smaller. The Moon completes its cycle during the Dark Phase of the Moon just before the Moon begins to Wax or grow again.

  339. How do you train yourself to see auras?(top)
    Open and align your third eye. Auras are the energy around the body and can be seen via your third eye. Practice by looking at a person and focusing on the space right around them. Look for the energy they are giving off.

  340. How do you unfavorite?(top)
    Go to your profile, and click the "Favorites" tab. From there, click the forum post or article you wish to unfavorite. It will take you directly to that item. At the top of the forum (bottom of the articles, I believe) it will say: Remove this(forum/article) as a Favorite. Click the word favorite, and it removes it.

  341. How do you write a spell?(top)
    You must learn to cast in order to cast a spells. Start with meditation and chakra work. Then move on to simple castings, such as a circle and shielding. Read as much as you can about the different forms of casting as well, such as candle magic. Visit Newbie central to help you get started as well. The Tips section has several good pointers

  342. How does a solar eclipse effect magic?(top)
    One of two things happen during a solar eclipse when it comes to magic. 1.) The energies will not flow right or at all and/or 2.) you can over charge any spells/rituals that you are doing. Most cultures see it as a bad omen, and so do prayer and rituals to bring back the sun.

  343. How does a wand effect a spell?(top)
    The function of the wand is to help you focus your energy and represent the element of air. If you can do with out one, then by all means, go for it.

  344. How does meditation help you with magic?(top)
    Meditation helps you with magic because it is where you learn to gather and redirect the energy needed for casting magical workings.

  345. How does one become Priest or Priestess of a coven they are already in?(top)
    If the coven is inactive, there is a chance you could be promoted to the priest/ess position. However, if you are a member of an active coven that has a current priest/ess you would have to prove yourself worthy of the position, and could only possibly get it if the current priest/ess left, promoted you, or became inactive. Generally people get promoted to priest/ess from the previous priest/ess whenever they choose to leave.

  346. How does one bend the elements?(top)
    You cannot manipulate the elements in such a way. This is not Avatar the Airbender. You may take energy from the Earth, but you cannot "bend" it.

  347. How does one construct a pendulum?(top)
    Perhaps the simplest way to make a pendulum is to take a piece of thread about 18 inches long and a ring. Slide the ring over the thread and then tie the two ends of the thread together. Hold the knot in the string between your thumb and forefinger and let the ring move as it wishes. Pendulums are designed to answer yes and no questions, so be sure to ask your question in such a way that a yes or a no will be the pendulum's response.

  348. How does one read tarot cards?(top)
    Reading tarot is a form of divination. The tarot cards are shuffled, cut, and then laid out in one of the many different spreads. Each position in the spread means something different, just as each of the tarot cards have a different meaning. The three card spread is the simplest spread and the positions from left to right are; past, present, future. After one shuffles and cuts the deck of tarot cards they will draw a card from the top of the deck to lay in the first position. This card represents the person's past. Then the next card drawn from the top of the deck will be placed in the second position, just to the right of the first card. This card represents the person's present. The last card drawn from the top of the deck will be placed in the third position, just to the right of the second card. This card represents the person's future. One will need to have a tarot card reference that lists what each card means until they become familiar enough with the different cards meanings. When reading tarot cards remember that this is a form of divination and the cards are to help you to see or know what is unseen or unknown. The individual cards are not the answer but a clue to help one find the answer they seek.

  349. How does one see magic?(top)
    You don't necessarily "see" magic, you experience it. You may see physical results of magic and you may sense magic is afoot but rarely does anyone physically see the energy manipulation that is referred to as magic.

  350. How does someone get rid of a demon?(top)
    Keep in mind that not all malicious spirits are demons and that not all demons are malicious. Normally, an exorcism is performed to cast a malicious spirit out of a host (this may be an object or place as well as a living being). If you don't have experience in exorcism, it is wise to gain the aid of someone who can (local priests are most likely to have the experience or know-how).

  351. How long do I need to be on the site to be able to create a coven?(top)
    There are enough covens and no new ones are allowed at this time.

  352. How long do you have to be on this site to upload a spell?(top)
    In order to upload a spell you must be a member of a Coven and hold a rank of Council or higher in that coven. The requirements for being a Council member vary from Coven to Coven. However, in Spellcasters Coven all members are ranked as Council.

  353. How long does a spell backfire last?(top)
    Assuming that what happened is indeed a backfire of a spell and not simply life happening, then a backfire lasts as long as it lasts. There is no way to know how long the results of a spell gone wrong will last, just as there is no way to know how long it will take for a spell to manifest.

  354. How long does it take for a dragon to hatch?(top)
    Dragons are not physically real, and therefore do not hatch.

  355. How long does it take for a spell to work?(top)
    The time it takes for a spell to work depends on things like the strength of the caster and type of spell. Some spells are immediate, others may take years. However, usually the caster will just 'know' right away whether a spell worked.

  356. How long does it take to learn the basics?(top)
    It depends on the individual. Everyone learns at different speeds, as everyone has different learning styles. I would suggest not to rush anything, to take your time with the basics and get to understand them fully- so to answer your questions, I would say it would take some time. It is not something you learn overnight and understand.

  357. How long does it take to perfect a simple spell?(top)
    It is different for each individual- there is no set amount of time. Some would suggest learning a bit about spell casting and spells in general before attempting to do spells. Once you have a basic understanding, it may be easier to attempt them. Practice is also an important aspect.

  358. How long is it until you can apply to run a coven?(top)
    If your account is over three months old, and you are not currently in a coven you can apply to Petrarca,the Site Administrator, to take over a coven. However, just because you apply to do so does not mean that you will be permitted to do so.

  359. How long should I mediate?(top)
    How ever long you feel necessary for your intended purpose. Do keep in mind that there are different forms of meditation designed to achieve different purposes.

  360. How long will a gag last?(top)
    Gags are often permanent, as stated in the rules you have to agree to for chatter: I understand that the Moderator's decision is final and if I argue with a warning or other person's gag, I too will be gagged and the gag will not be removed. Moderators do not gag members at random. If someone was gagged it was because they broke the rules. If you get a warning the moderator is being extremely nice and arguing will just get you gagged.

  361. How many different forms of magick are there?(top)
    There are an infinite number of magical forms since most people have there own unique style.

  362. How many rankings are there to be given? (top)
    There is: 1) Fluffy- Only knowledgeable members can see this rank. It means someone who is not serious, who trolls the site, and who roleplays fantasy. 2) No rank- Generally means you haven't got any votes yet. 3) Beginner- You are just starting out or have just a basic understanding of things. 4) Novice- You have studied some and have a more broader knowledge of things. 5) Knowledgeable- You are knowledgeable and mature, often specializing in a certain area or practice and are qualified to teach others here. 6) Adept- The highest rank for those who have been practicing a long time, are extremely knowledgeable in their paths/other paths, and are helpful.

  363. How many spells do you have to do to move on to intermediate?(top)
    It is not so much a number of spells, but your ability to control the forces needed for the magic you wish to cast. This is mostly a natural ability, though with practice people can improve and become better. In short, there are no hard and fast rules to say when you have reached a certain level.

  364. How many times must you chant a spell?(top)
    I would say that it depends on the individual spell, and what it calls for. If it doesn't seem to have any specific number of times you must chant something, I say do it as many times as you personally feel that it needs.

  365. How many wands can you have?(top)
    You can have as many wands as you wish and as you need. Some magical practitioners will have wands made from different woods for different purposes so they may have quite a few different ones.

  366. How to read messages sent to me by a member?(top)
    Click on the link in the top right of the page thay says Mail. It will be between Profile and Sign Out. From there a list of unread messages, if any, will show.

  367. How to use site mail?(top)
    Go to the profile page of the site member you would like to contact. Click the mail tab located just above their profile picture. Type your message in the box provided and then click the send button located below the box to complete the mailing.

  368. How will I know if my spell is going to work?(top)
    Not all spells work right away. It can take years for a spell to work. Also some use a pendulum before and after a spell to see if the spell is going to be successful.

  369. How will you know when you've hit communication limit?(top)
    You will not be able to reply to forums or to mail anyone.

  370. How would one self-initiate themselves?(top)
    You cannot self-initiate yourself. To be initiated one needs both a group into which to be initiated and someone to conduct the initiation that makes you part of the group egregore. However, you certainly can do a self-dedication. That can be as simple as stating your intentions verbally or in writing and promising to follow a specific path to the best of your ability.

  371. I am new here, how do I get started?(top)
    I would suggest starting out by reading "The Basics Expanded", "The Elements", and "Visualization, in the General Info Forum here. I'd also recommend the book "Modern Magick" by Donald Michael Kraig.

  372. I been trying to cast a spell but I have been unsucessful. What am I doing wrong?(top)
    Magick takes time and education to achieve. Meditation is not the end all be all. There is also grounding, centering, visualization, correspondences, and so much more! You can find many free resources such as pdfs, articles, and informational forum posts to help guide you. Remember, Google is free and opened twenty four seven.

  373. I believe in magic, but the spells don't work. Why?(top)
    There could be any number of reasons your spells don't work. It is important to realize that many of the spells on this site are fake and will never work at all. Or the problem may be that you don't understand the basics of what makes magic work and haven't mastered the necessary skills.

  374. I have practiced magic for a while and it still hasn't worked. What do I do now?(top)
    The problem is that magic is not a simple as chanting some words or lighting some candles. Often the reason that spells aren't working is that the person casting them doesn't truly understand how and why magic functions in the first place. I would suggest the following books to give you a better understanding of magical basics to give you the ground work on which to build your magical skills. "Spells and How They Work" by Janet and Stewart Farrar "The Veil's Edge" by Willow Polson "Modern Magick" by Donald Kraig

  375. I want to make a real Ouija board. One that I can pass on to my kids when I have a family. What is the best way to make one?(top)
    Take a wooden board the size you feel comfortable making into a spirit board and decorate the top in the style of your choosing. It can be the classic Ouija board that was made famous by a toy company or you can personalize it. Sealing the top of the board with wood sealant will help protect the artwork and make the top of the spirit board smooth. This will provide the planchette (heart shaped indicator used to communicate) with less resistant therefore aiding the spirits present in their communication with you. Symbols may be carved or burned into the wood or one could utilize decoupage. The planchette is usually carved from wood and needs to be raised about a half an inch from the board on three short stilts. Be creative and look for items to utilize for your spirit board in all places.

  376. I'm new to Wicca. How can I learn more?(top)
    Start with the Wicca Forum here on SOM. In particular read the threads "What Wicca Is and Isn't" and the "Main Wicca Posts". They will provide you with a lot of information. I'd also suggest the book "Wicca" by Thea Sabin.

  377. If I block somebody, will they know that I've blocked them?(top)
    No. Your account will simply appear as if it was removed from SoM; no profile picture, bio, other pictures, friends listing, or any option by which to contact you.

  378. If I buy a wand in the shop, will I still have to charge the wand?(top)
    Most wands or any magical items posses a power of their own so its not necessary. However, if you wish to place your own special energy on it it would be a good idea..

  379. If I deleted the email I used to create my account, would my account be deleted?(top)
    No, but you may not be able to recover the SoM account if there is a password issue.

  380. If I have been gagged will my profile be removed?(top)
    No. Although it is up to the mod that gagged you to remove the gag. This being said if your not ungagged soon after being gagged I would make a new account and let it go.

  381. If I make a small mistake in saying a spell do I have to redo it?(top)
    If you have any doubt in your mind that your spell might not work because you made a mistake in casting it then it is likely that the spell will fail. The best thing to do is to stop as soon as you realize your mistake and start the spell over again from the beginning.

    Nope, you don't. If you invoke a God or Goddess for aid in a magical working they might decide to help that working come to fruition. Or they might not. It is entirely up to them. But the power remains with the Gods, their power is not given to us so that we become as them.

  386. If you invoke a god or godess will they control you?(top)

    Wicca is not a type of magic, rather it is a specific religion with specific beliefs and practices. While Wiccans do use magic there is no such thing as "Wiccan magic". Magic simply is magic. It is the same no matter who is using it. You don't have to be Wiccan to do magic.

  390. Is an African witch different from a witch?(top)
    The word witch is just a title given to a magic practitioner. Each person is different in their casting though similarities are common.

  391. Is doing spell work against God?(top)
    That is a question that should be asked of your religious leader, not some random stranger on a message board. Some religions believe that their God does not want them to do magic. Other religions have no problem with it. What does your religion teach?

  395. Is it necessary to perform magick in complete isolation?(top)

  396. Is it normal for a spell you've written not to work?(top)
    No spell will work 100% of the time. There could be many reasons why a spell might not work. Remember too that spells work in their own time. It may yet manifest. Don't expect a spell to work immediately.

  397. Is it normal to be able to control what happens in your dreams?(top)
    Many people are able to do that. It's known as "lucid dreaming" and is a skill that pretty much anyone can learn if they wish to. It's perfectly normal.

  402. Is it possible to change my personality with magick?(top)

    No. All ratings are anonymous.

  404. Is it possible to find, or get, Fairy Dust or Dragon's Blood?(top)
    Fairy Dust that can be bought is purely symbolic. It is not real fairy dust, by a component used to represent this in your magical practice. Dragon's Blood the name for a resin derived from a root. It is possible to harvest if you grow the proper plants, but it is a rather complex process.

  405. Is it possible to forget how to use magick?(top)
    Not really. If you have truly learned how and why magic works then taking up the practice again is rather like getting back on a bicycle again after you haven't ridden in awhile.

  406. Is it possible to lose magick powers?(top)
    You can not loose your magick, nor can you have it taken away. Magick is part of your energy and your life.

  408. Is magic bad?(top)
    Magic is neither bad nor good. It is energy that is composed of both positive and negative polarities. Whether it is bad or good is based upon mere opinion. This is generally determined, not only by opinion, but also by how magic is used and for what purpose.

  409. Is magic real?(top)
    Magic is real if you believe that it is real. It is also like asking if faith is real.

    That is a much debated subject, and at the moment in our present state of human evolution there is no such claim or proof that such things exist.

  412. Is the Art of formal philosophers like Hermes Trismegistus the same as in Wicca?(top)
    Wicca is a specific religion founded in the mid 20th century by Gerald Gardner.

Both draw from the concept that the universe and everything in it is interconnected.

    The Necronomicon does not exist. It was a plot device in a fictional book by H.P. Lovecraft.

  415. Is there a counter-spell?(top)
    Yes, there are spells that can counter a spell that has already been cast; however, there are some who believe that once casted the spell cannot be broken nor countered. Others believe that there are only certain spell that cannot be countered or broken.

  416. Is there a difference between ghost and spirits?(top)
    All ghosts are spirits but not all spirits are ghosts. A ghost is the spirit form of a person who once had a physical body. There are many spirits that have never had a physical body because they are simply energy beings. These can be seen as gods, angels, nymphs, sprites, faeries, etc. There are also spirits of the elements, plants and animals.

    No. You cannot physically form anything, much less mist.

  422. Is there a way I can levitate?(top)
    Levitation as in using energy to lift the body- the impression can be given off using illusions and visual distortions. Otherwise it would take something like extremely high speeds of wind forcing the body upward, which technically isn't levitation; so no.

    Meditation is the best way to help one deal with too many thoughts however is also a bit harder to accomplish when one has too many thoughts. Try relaxing music, aroma therapy though incense, scented candles or an oil burner, and/or a calming salve to aid you with your meditation. Be sure as well that you are in a space that you feel safe, it quiet and calm, it is not too bright, and it is free of other distractions such as people or pets. Meditation after a shower or bath can also be easier to accomplish.

    Witchcraft is a form of magic and does not have to have a specific religion connected to it, however many use witchcraft or magical workings as part of their religious practices. The oldest religions known at this time utilized some form of magic.

  429. Is there any incantation that can help me concentrate during meditation?(top)
    It takes time and effort to meditate efficiently; even meditating helps meditations you will do. What you can for incantations is use a simple mantra such as the "Ohm" mantra. There are many meditation mantras. Try researching them and give them a try.

  436. Is writing something multiple times a form of chanting?(top)
    Yes it is.

  437. Should I eat before meditating?(top)
    It is a personal choice to eat prior to meditation. For beginners an empty stomach that is in need of sustenance may be an added distraction to ones meditation practice. More advanced practitioners may fast prior to ritual which means they are meditating on an empty stomach prior to ritual, however their experience with meditation allows them to overlook the distraction.

  438. Should I eat before preforming magick?(top)
    It is a personal choice as to the requirements of fasting prior to a casting. Most higher magics call for a fasting of some form prior to ritual, however they are not required and personal safety is much more important. Often the fasting is for certain types of food such as; meats, dairy products, processed foods, excess fats, etc. Leaving one to eat only the whole and as raw as possible power foods prior to casting.

  439. Should I feel tired after meditating?(top)
    Most feel awake, aware, cleansed or refreshed. If you were just thinking while closing your eyes, that can signal your brain to go to sleep, which might explain why you felt tired.

  440. Should you say an incantation with a powerful voice?(top)
    It is a personal choice. It is possible to speak quietly or recite the words in your mind and still have the incantation work. Energy is raised with focus and intent which can be enough energy to power a magical working, however there is energy in sound. By speaking magical words aloud, clear, and strong one will increase the energy available to the magical casting.

  441. The spells I'm using don't seem to do anything. Why?(top)
    Make sure to learn the basics first. Grounding, centering, shielding, meditation, and energy work. Study before practice. Take your time and do what feels right for you, rather than what the pre-written spell says. Study, listen to yourself, and work harder. Remember that practice makes perfect.

    A Forget Me Not is a type of flower sometimes used in Magick.

    There are no levels in practicing magic. Wicca sometimes describes first and second degrees and so forth. Reiki sometimes teaches different "levels" of understanding. But one does not level up.

  445. What are psychic vampires?(top)
    Psychic vampire is a name by which those who like to steal energy from others like to be known. Fifteen years ago before being a vampire was thought to be "cool" they were simply called energy leeches. They claim that they need to take energy from others in order to be healthy, but this is simply not true.

  446. What are some books you would suggest reading to help learn about herbs?(top)
    The SoM shop page includes a number of books on herbs and their uses in magical practices that might be quite helpful. Go to "Visit Our Online Shop," click on Books, and then click Healing, Crystal, & Herb.

    A spirit animal is an animal that one feels spiritually connected to. Often times the animal and the person will have similar traits.

Most spirit animals are also a type of spirit guide to a person, helping them along their path to learn and grow by teaching the animals wisdom.

  449. What are the basics for Astral Projection?(top)
    They can be learned through study and practice after you have been meditating on a daily basis for a continuing and sustained time. I suggest looking through the forums and asking there. You can also join a coven to have someone available to help instruct in your study and practice.

  450. What are the basics?(top)
    "Basics" are the requirements that you must achieve in order to perform an action. In magick, there is a basic level of knowledge that you need to learn before you are able to work with magick in a proper and safe way and in order to succeed with spell casting. The basics of magic include but are not limited to Circle casting, meditation, energy control, grounding and centring, correspondences, elements and many more.

  451. What are the benefits of writing your own spell?(top)
    Writing your own spells for a specific situation helps to increase your focus on the action, clarifies your exact intent, and begins to push energy into the spell even before you cast it. All of these things are going to help insure that the spell is going to work and in the manner you intended.

  452. What are the best products to purchase for beginners?(top)
    There are many books out there that are specifically for beginners in magic. Some are an overview and others are more specific containing information on only one topic. Other items that would be appropriate for beginners to purchase are items to set up an alter. Such as a chalice, offering bowl, censer/incense burner, athame, candle holders, alter tile, alter bell, and/or an alter cupboard. White and black candles and a sage stick for smudging would also be appropriate as well as some protection oil for anointing the candles.

  453. What are the different membership Ranks?(top)
    None (not yet ranked), Beginner, Novice, Knowledgeable and Adept. Rank is based off a vote decided by Knowledgeable and Adept members. Begging for rank ups is against site rules and it can result in being gagged. It should happen naturally as you communicate within the community.

  454. What are the different types of pentagrams?(top)
    A pentagram is nothing more than a five-pointed star. A pentagram within a circle is called a pentacle. Generally a pentacle is presented with the point upwards. In Western magick the five points represent the Elements of Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Spirit, all held within the circle of Creation. The inverted pentacle, with the point downwards is used in some Wiccan Traditions to represent someone who has achieved the 2nd Degree. It is also used by some Satanists; however, in that case there is usually a head of Baphomet (a goat-headed figure) overlying the pentacle.

  455. What are the directions of the elements in nature?(top)
    The traditional Pagan directions are North - Earth East - Air (sometimes Fire), South - Fire (sometimes Air), and West - Water. Other traditions in other parts of the world offer different directions with different energies.

  456. What are the stars on the top of spell card, are they difficulty level or no?(top)
    Members can rate spells and articles. The number of stars listed at the top of a spell or article is the average rating or review by the members. It does not directly relate to the difficulty of the spell or article.

  457. What are the things I need for a spiritual bath?(top)
    A basic bath for cleansing before spiritual or magical workings can easily be done by adding some salt (preferably sea salt) that you have blessed to the water. You can also add whatever herbs you wish to the bath. I like one or more of the following: Lavender, hyssop, mugwort, hops, sage, or bay leaves.

  458. What are toxic dreams?(top)
    Toxic dreams are dreams that are very realistic or at least perceived as such, that are disturbing, very upsetting, scary in some cases; they will usually occur whence the mind is clouded with stressful or upsetting thoughts. In other words, 'realistic nightmares'.

  459. What book is best for a beginner who doesn't even know what magic is?(top)
    Two books that I would suggest to start out are "Modern Magick" by Donald Michael Kraig and "Spells and How They Work" by Janet and Stewart Farrar.

  460. What books do you recomend for a beginner to read?(top)
    That would depend entirely on what you wish to learn about. Be more specific and you're more apt to get an answer that will help you. And this question is more appropriate for the Forums than as a FAQ.

  461. What can I place around my door and large window to keep out intruders?(top)
    You can place salt and garlic on the window sill and on the outside of the door. You can also place a broom across both the window and the door. If you have enough brooms you can place two brooms crossed over one another at the door and window.

  462. What coven should I join?(top)
    Which coven you join depends entirely on you and on what you're particularly interested in. Each coven is somewhat different. Read the description of the coven and what it offers. If you still have questions you can always e-mail the Priestess or the Priest of the coven and ask for more information.

  463. What crystals are best for protection?(top)
    There are quit a few that work good for protection, but my favorite would have to be Hematite and Smokey Quartz. I would say which one you feel the most protection from.

  464. What do I do if i can't afford supplies to cast spells?(top)
    Supplies are tools, and as such they are not requirements for the spell. Tools can be replaced, or even entirely omitted. You can learn what the value and purpose of each tool said to be used for the spell, and learn what they can be replaced with that you already have in your ready-to-use availability at home. Or you can learn how to cast the spell entirely omitting the tools listed.

  465. What do I need to do to increase my ranking on this site?(top)
    As you send time on this site by: reading posts and responding intelligently to them, and communicating in the chats, other members whom are able to rank your profile will do so as they see fit. One moves from beginner up to adept by increasing their knowledge of the craft and by being helpful and courteous to other members.

  466. What do council members do in their covens?(top)
    It varies from coven to coven. Ultimately, the high priestess and priest promote council to help them with tasks around the coven. Council is also able to add spells to the site, via the coven spellbook.

  467. What do the stars mean next to a spell's name?(top)
    The stars are a rating system to let others know whether a spell seems to be a good one or not. One star means the spell isn't so good or might be fake. Five stars suggest a good spell to use.

  468. What do you do in a coven?(top)
    Ideally, a coven is a group of like-minded people who come together with the understanding that there is strength in numbers and any organization is only as strong as its weakest link. What a coven is, most of all, is a “group mind”. A coven is a group of people who have worked hard to achieve rapport so that the focus and flow of every ritual comes naturally to the entire group. With that in mind it is necessary for each member of a coven to understand that self-confidence, sincerity, ambition, and absolute honesty are critical characteristics of a dedicated witch. While even the most traditional coven allows for some differences in belief, there is absolutely no room for personal agendas which do not serve the interests of the entire coven. A coven provides a platform for sharing craft-related experiences, working together to raise energy for magic, group meditations, spiritual growth, and enlightenment.

  469. What do you do with used ingredients when you are finished with a spell?(top)
    This depends on the ingredients. The most common way is to bury items in the earth or burn ingredients.

  470. What do you need for a altar?(top)
    Generally you will need something to represent each of the elements. things that represent your path or deities. also any feathers, candles inscense, tools, herbs that you feel you need

  471. What do you need to do do, to get money, riches and wealth?(top)
    The only real answer is: Work hard. Magic might give a little helping hand, but the bottom line is that nothing will happen if you don't work for it.

  472. What does 'Novice' mean?(top)
    There are ranks on Spells of Magic that help people differentiate who is serious about Magic and who is not. They go from Fluffy (not serious and refuses to believe certain things aren't real), Beginner (can be serious, just doesn't know yet how to differentiate real from fiction), Novice (are serious about Magick and can even have years of experience and still be considered such - not a bad rank), Knowledgeable (those who are serious and have had years of experience and have shown a great deal of knowledge within the community), and finally, Adept (those who really know what they're talking about and have had experience ranging from nearly a decade to multiple decades).

  473. What does 'So Mote It Be' mean?(top)
    It basically means So Be It as in my work is done so let it be done. I hope this helps answer your question.

  474. What does a charged stone do for you?(top)
    A charged stone holds energy. You can then use the energy contained in the stone for magical workings.

  476. What does gagged mean?(top)
    It means that you have broken a rule, and a moderator has removed your ability to communicate on the site.

  477. What does it mean if shadows are following me?(top)
    First of all, do you know what these shadows are? Not all entities are bad. What are they doing? Are they just following you? Trying to communicate with you? You could do a protection and cleansing spell. They are found in Spell Tab. This should be right next to the Home Tab.

  478. What does it mean if there are no stars listed next to a spell?(top)
    The starts indicate how a spell has been ranked by users. If no stars are present, it likely means that the spell has not been ranked by a member yet.

  479. What does it mean if you feel a bond with someone you've only met once?(top)
    A strong connection has been made. It could be someone you have had a past life experience with or someone you may have a strong connection with this life or even in a future life.

    It is when you have broken a rule, and a moderator removes your ability to use forums/chatter.

    Consecration is the solemn dedication to a special purpose or service, usually religious. The word consecration literally means "association with the sacred". Persons, places, or things can be consecrated, and the term is used in various ways by different groups.

  482. What does it take to become a full coven?(top)
    Your coven must have 13 members or more.

  483. What does the most powerful spirit/sigil look like?(top)

  484. What does the word 'invoking' mean?(top)
    Invocation (verb form, invoke) means to call up and in from without. In terms of Magick, this usually means to call an entity into yourself or energy into a circle (if practicing most pre-Christian European pantheons). It can also mean to set energy in motion, but that is not the most widespread definition.

  485. What exactly is The Three Fold Law?(top)
    The Three-Fold Law is a Wiccan belief that every action we take comes back to us three-fold, or three times over. What we send out that is negative returns to us as negative. And those actions we do that are positive have a positive return.

  486. What goes in the book of shadows?(top)

    If the salt is used in a spell, then it does need to be disposed of properly once the ritual is over. If the spell is simply on the altar to represent the Element of Earth it can be reused in future rituals. Both the water and the salt should be disposed of by pouring them on the Earth or into running water such as a stream. Vary the place you dispose of these items so that salt build-up doesn't kill your plants or grass.

And of course, no fantasy spells will work at all.

    There's always a reason as to why a member has been gagged. You mostly likely broke a rule and for that you were gagged. Moderators do not have to warn you when you break a rule. A mod is being nice when he/she gives warning. The rules are there for all to read, and all agree to abide by the rules when first joining the site and when getting access to the chat room. If you don't like having been gagged, take it up with the moderator that gagged.

  596. Why am I having problems viewing the videos?(top)
    This could be happening for any number of reasons, ranging from problems with your browser, to needing to update various browser plugins.

  597. Why am I ranked as member?(top)
    Coven Position - if you have been moved up from Member to Council this is because the High Priest/Priestess has deemed you worthy of the position by showing your knowledge, being active, and helping other members of the coven in various ways. Reputation - this is gained by members of Knowledgeable or Adept reputation seeing that you are showing your knowledge in forums and/or chat room and voting you for a reputation.

  598. Why are Ouija boards dangerous to some and not to others?(top)
    Sometimes when working with a Ouija board one can make contact with a less-than-friendly spirit that can cause trouble for you if you are not properly shielded. Working within a cast circle and only contacting spirits of those you know can minimize the risk of having such troublesome spirits appear.

  599. Why are covens restricted?(top)
    A coven is like a magical family so it is important that the members have liking and respect for each other. Not everyone who applies to a coven might be a good fit for that particular family. Requiring an application process helps to insure that the person will be a good coven member and will fit in with the other coven members well.

  600. Why aren't there rituals to take a person soul out of its body?(top)
    Because most such efforts and acts involving such things are purely the stuff of Hollywood. The idea of it rarely involves any true understanding of what the "soul" is.

  601. Why can't I chat?(top)
    You have to take the test to get access to the chat room(s). Read the rules carefully, answer the questions, and agree. Most of all follow and abide by the rules.

  602. Why can't I mass delete?(top)
    If you are talking about the mail system, you can mass delete everything in your default inbox. If you want to save anything, you can put it into a folder.

  603. Why can't I post on forums anymore?(top)
    Most of the time where you cannot use mail, chatter, or post in the forums means that you have most likely been gagged.

  604. Why can't I see my read messages?(top)
    After you open a new mail the site mail system will automatically place the mail into your default mailbox. You can access this mailbox by clicking on your mail tab and then the default button located on the left hand side of your main mail page. You also have the option of creating different mail boxes to sort your mail. If you do not pick a mailbox the system will still place a new but opened mail into the default mailbox.

  605. Why can't I upload photos to my photo album?(top)
    Some times it takes a few minutes for it to show. Have you tried hitting F5? That does help things to show up faster.

  606. Why can't we use different languages?(top)
    According to the site terms of use different languages may be used sparingly. The majority of a contribution must be in English however use of Latin phrases are allowed so long as they do not violet other terms of use or site rules.

  607. Why did I get a chill down my spine when I was meditating for the first time?(top)
    Two probable reasons. One is that there was a draft in your room. The second is that when sitting and meditating for a period of time it is common for one to start feeling chilly.

  608. Why do I feel very strong and magical sometimes and other time feel disconnected(top)
    That sort of thing happens with every magic user from time to time. There are many reasons why you might feel this way. Stress, being tired, being sick, the phase of the moon, etc. Most of us deal with it by recognizing when we're not fully there magically and waiting for a better time to do our spellwork.

  609. Why do I get headaches everyime I cast a spell?(top)
    The energies you use in everyday are wild and uncontrolled. That kind of energy is not suitable for spell work as it requires advanced energy control for the energy to reach the intended destination. That is why you first need to ground and centre and learn better about energy work.

  610. Why do most of the spells rhyme?(top)
    Many spells rhyme for multiple reasons including but not limited to: it's believed that when a spell rhymes it helps in making them stronger; they are much easier to remember; it helps in consistency so as not to mess up in a casting that in doing so would cause the spell to weaken, not work, or act on an unintended intent; and personal preference when writing a spell.

  611. Why do spells take so long to work?(top)
    The time it takes for a spell to work depends on things like the strength of the caster and type of spell. Some spells are immediate, others may take years. A spell simply takes as long as it takes to manifest.

  612. Why does it say I am not permitted to speak?(top)
    This is because you have been gagged (silenced) by a moderator of this site. This occurs when you have broken a rule of the chatter. In this case, you are not allowed to speak in the chatter, post in the forums or post in the mail system. The time of the gag depends on the moderator who has gagged you.

  613. Why does it say I'm a beginner / novice /knowledgeable / adept on my profile?(top)
    A knowledge ranking system has been implemented on the site. The exact way people are ranked is not revealed, but is based on your participation and general knowledge of paganism, wicca, magic, occult arts and the like. This system helps identify the most knowledgeable people (ranked as Knowledgeable or Adept) on their profile and in the forums so that people new to Spells Of Magic have abetter idea of who to trust.

  614. Why doesn't my bio show up?(top)
    You may have reached the character limit for your bio. If that's not the case, there may have been an issue with it properly updating. Try shortening your bio if it's long. If not, cut and past it then update it. If that doesn't solve the problem talk to the site owner, Petrarca.

  615. Why is there a communication limit?(top)
    Communication limits help prevent the site servers from being overwhelmed, or otherwise inappropriately used by spam bots and other such software. They are put in place to help ensure that the website stays up and running for you.

  616. Will I be able to cast spell without knowing how to meditate? (top)
    You might be able to, but meditation is a valuable tool in helping you clarify the intent of your spell and focus on the goal the spell is to reach.

  617. Will I be alerted if I am gagged?(top)
    Most mods will not mail you to tell you that you have been gagged. Mods are not required to give you an explanation for why you were gagged, which rule you broke, etc. Some mods will, but that is personal preference. You can tell when you have been gagged because you will be unable to use forums, mail and chat.

  618. Will a spell still work if it is written in another language?(top)
    Yes, but you need to take the time to understand what is being said. Its best to know what you are saying because it helps project your intention and energy.

  619. Will magic effect my christian belief?(top)
    No. In fact magic exists and is part of all religions, and none more so than Christianity. Things like a prayer is a type of magic, so if you have ever prayed, you have already done magic. A spell is a prayer and magic is a miracle.

  620. Will spells work if you whisper them?(top)
    Indeed they will. Spells can be spoken, whispered, song, or just thought out in your head. What is more essential is that you have a clear focus on the results you desire, you have raised the appropriate energy, and that you believe in your spell.
