|Bright Blessings! Where do I begin... oh ya... I'm 46, live in Louisville, KY and I am a witch. I know very little of Wicca and even less of Paganism in the sense of a "religion". My journey has been self taught thus far. My grandmother was a witch and my mother a fortune teller. I am by no means *that* knowledgeable but I know what I know and it has worked well for me. This is an attempt to possibly meet others online with like ideals. I would one day like to be part of an in person coven local to me that I can physically be with but the ones I find around here are not of my beliefs so I continue to search. Till then, I am home here.
I feel that nothing is more valuable than the wisdom that can be passed down to you by people experienced in the Craft.
I hope to learn so much that I have not been able to on my own. Things like astral projection, meditation, contacting my spirit guide and so much more.
As a somewhat seasoned witch, my first word of advice to initiates is, go for the more mundane before resorting to the Craft.
Instead of trying to telepathically reach someone to know how they are doing, pick up the phone, send an email or use Tarot cards.
Learn your herbs, oils, about Nature and her gifts (I know this sounds corny but DO become ONE with Nature). Learn of your elementals, candle magic, colors, aromas/essences (essence of a thunderstorm is WOW powerful stuff). Oh and work on your poetry and the way words rhyme. When a spell rhymes and is short it causes you to remember it in your mind. You think and speak it easily without error and can focus better on the task. After I am done casting, I continue saying the spell in my mind, while driving my car or wherever I am. I find to speak the chant for the spell over and over will enforce it...it strengthens it and almost becomes a temporary mantra that you speak until it manifests.
An easy female spell for increasing the attraction others have for you.
Light a white candle in front of a mirror.
I usually do it after I have done my hair and makeup... but for you, only when you feel your best do you cast this because you are reflecting what you want others to see so you MUST see yourself as beautiful and attractive. You become the mirror image that YOU view in the mirror.
All who gaze upon my face
See feminine beauty, style and grace.
Only good things do they see
As I will it so shall it be.
Imagine people smiling when they see you.
Men or women 'checking you out'
Men and women sincerely smiling and greeting you.
Feel the confidence of a beautiful person and revel in the attraction you create with this. Believe you are attractive. Stand with your head held high, your shoulders back and walk with purpose. You will be amazed at the comments you receive.
Music is another thing that I find helps with my crafting. I will play a song that will trigger an emotion necessary for the success of the spell. Like I said, I know what works for me.
I am a member of Magical Beings Working Alone and it is the first coven I have ever been a member of on or offline.
Skilled in reading of the Tarot and currently teach classes to my coven.
So a special word...
We are here to do our work
Finding truth is the perk
Focus and kinship is the key
As I will this so shall it be.
Be well and let me know if you have any questions. :o)
