A Bit About Me:
You may call me Loni, Misa, or Lily. I am known by all three here on the site.
I have been practicing magic since late 2002, early 2003. I've been a follower of Kemetisim since early 2009. In total, I've been practicing for thirteen, soon to be fourteen, years. I am an Eclectic, Kemetic practitioner that follows Bast and Anubis. I work with Bast regularly and often call to Anubis when I am working with spirits, ancestors, etc.
To me, magic is a harmonious movement of energies that we tap into and utilize to bring about a desired end. I feel that by working with such energies it allows us to better connect to and understand the energies within the natural world and the cycles of the Earth. I also feel that it helps us better understand ourselves and our general connection to others and the world around us.
When it comes to magic, I do not believe in good or bad; these are subjective. There is no black or white, only our intent. It is the caster who determines what outcome their magic will have, be it beneficial or baneful. That said, I cast as I see fit to cast. If I need to heal, I heal. If I need to protect, I protect. If I need to curse, then I curse.
All that said, I am working on getting into classes to achieve my certification in level 1 Reiki healing. I'm a full time college student; an education major. And I'm working on getting my Associates in Early Childhood Education. I hope to do daycare work or teach preschool once I finish the degree. At current, I work for a lovely fruit and chocolate company. I decorate and put together fruit baskets.
I greatly enjoy art and music. I am very fond of spiritual research (pertaining to mediums and forms of spirit communication, as I myself am sensitive to spirits.) I also have a love of classic literature. Dracula, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hide, Frankenstein, and the works of Poe are still my favorite reads. I actually have a full collection of Poe's Raven Edition, books 1-5, from 1903 that my father gave me. They are among my prized possessions.
My Studies & Practices:
~Before working with magic or spell casting there are some key things you may wish to study:
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.
