Personal Bio

A Note on Mail:

  • If you send me inappropriate, non-magic related, or fluffy mail I will block you and report you to a mod, if need be.
  • I will not answer mails without a subject or ones that simply say "hello." If you want a response from me, make sure your mail has a subject and a few sentences stating what is is you have questions regarding, need assistance with , etc.
  • I will not respond to mail regarding summoning/evocation. If you have to ask then you clearly aren't experienced enough to attempt it in the first place.
  • I will not cast spells for you. Take the time to learn how to do it yourself. Research, study, and practice are the best ways to learn anything. Research the topic, study the information that you've collected, and finally put what you've learned into practice.
  • I will not mentor you. If you have found your way to this site, you should be able to find your way to the FAQs, Tips, Newbie Central, and Featured Articles sections here on the site. There are tabs for each at the top of your Home Page. The Starting Out and The Basics: Expanded threads in the General Info ?board of? the Spell Casting ? section?in the public forums will also provide you with useful information, as will several of the other stickied threads there.


A Bit About Me:

You may call me Loni. I am happily married, and the proud mother of a beautiful little girl.?I have been practicing witchcraft for about twelve years. I am an ?eclectic Kemetic practitioner. My deity is Bast.

I mainly work with herbs and their magical properties. I practice natural magic (magic that involves the use of herbs, crystals, oils, etc). I also study and practice divination (specifically ceromancy and some tarot), correspondences, chakra work, potion brewing, herbal remedies, absent healing, sympathetic magics, astral projection, etc. I'm looking into and self-teaching myself crystal healing in association with Reiki healing and color therapy.

I have some experience with what is known as deity shadowing. It is a form of deity channeling in which the deity's presence is with you and guides you through the ritual.

I also do a lot of yoga, or I try to at least. It helps me with relaxation and meditation. I have built my own yoga sequence using one of the yoga sites I frequent. I've also been looking into Anusara yoga. If you are interested in looking into it, I've added links below that may help.


~Before working with magic or spell casting there are some key things you need to know:

  • Meditation
  • Visualization
  • Energy flow, control, and raising.
  • Grounding
  • Centering
  • Belief in yourself and your abilities
  • Circle Casting and Releasing
  • Correspondences (colors, days, lunar phases, etc)

Please keep in mind that depending on who you talk to the basics can and often do differ. The above list are the basics that I studied when I first started practicing. You can add to this list or take subjects from it depending on your interests or what you feel you need or don't need to learn. However, I suggest studying all of them because you may very well need to know them in the future.


Also, a few beginners books that I would recommend are:

  • The Witch Book: The Encyclopedia of Witchcraft, Wicca, and Neo-Paganism. ~ Written by Raymond Buckland.
  • Herb Magic for Beginners: Down-to-Earth Enchantments ~ Written by Ellen Dugan
  • Wicca: A Guide for the Solitary Practitioner. ~ Written by Scott Cunningham.
  • Living Wicca: A Further Guide for the Solitary Practitioner ~ Written by Scott Cunningham.

Now then, the books by Scott Cunningham might have Wicca in the titles, but they are quite useful to anyone new to the craft, in my opinion. They contain info on correspondences (colors,days of the week, etc), Sabbat dates, visualization, circle casting, meditation, etc.


By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest. - Confucius

I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order. - John Burroughs
