Personal Bio
When Mailing me:
  • Do not ask me to cast or write spells for you.
  • Do not ask me for spells on becoming werewolves, vampires, etc. These are all fake.
  • No I do not do readings of any kind.
  • Do not flirt with me. I'm not interested in what you're selling. Move along.
  • Have a proper subject and a legitimate reason for mailing me or the mail will be ignored.
  • I am happy to offer advice and assistance, but I will not spoon-feed you information. The best way to learn is research, study, and practice. Research what interests you, study the information you've collected, and finally, when you're ready, put what you've studied into practice.

About Me:
I am better known around the site as Lonicera .
A list of my studies and practices can be found below. I veer more toward the "Left-Hand Path," with some of my practices. In total, I've been practicing for about thirteen 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.
That being said, 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
  • Hedge Witchery - Utilization of the natural energies within plants, gems/stones, etc for magical purposes.
  • Crystal Work - Magical and alternative, medicinal uses.
  • Herbalism - Both magical and medicinal uses.
  • Creation of herbal tinctures (or potions, if you prefer) and gem elixirs.
  • Divination - ceromancy and tarot.
  • Kemeticism
  • Various types of healing. These include: absent healing, votive healing, reiki, color therapy, etc.
  • Deity Channeling, lesser forms of it. 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.
  • Incense - I make my own.
  • Chakra work.
  • Sympathetic magic - poppets, candles, etc.
  • Correspondences
  • Blood Magic
  • Curse Work
~Before working with magic or spell casting there are some key things you may wish to study:
  • 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.
  • Making Herbal Remedies (Herbology At Home Series) ~ by Anke Bialas
  • Homemade Health - Home remedies your grandmother knew - Simple & effective treatments from the pantry (Herbology At Home) ~ by Anke Bialas

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), the Sabbats, Meditation,Visualization, Energy Raising, etc.
