I have been into witchcraft since 15 but so far not a single spell has worked for me.For personal reasons I went to a paranormal psychologist.He told me I had great psychic power I just had to open my chackras.So what do I have to do to become a powerful witch?
as cliche as it may seem the best approach is like any craft or skill. Practice and studying is a great place to start. Studying garners knowledge and wisdom from many different places. Speak with different witches in different walks of life, meditate to learn from the spirits and yourself, read many books to learn the basics of how magic manifests and grow. Alchemy has a lot of knowledge pertaining to this. Reading on theology also helps as many roots to religions overlap with magic.
If I may ask what kind of spells have you been trying and how do you go about casting them?
I've practiced for over 20 years and only recently have started to come across this concept that one must open their 'chakras' to do magic. Not all systems of magic believe in chakras and few have anything that correlates to them.
As stated previously for spell casting practice. Learn the basics. Look into different types of witchcraft, Wicca, and magic. What interests you? Learn more about it. Keep practicing writing spells. I like to keep a spellbook and write down and take notes of any results that correspond to my spellwork.
You do not have to open or balance all of your chakras to improve psychic ability.
Improving abilities such as clairvoyance, clairaudience, and clairsentience etc takes practice. Just like spell work, just like any other skill one tries to learn.
Unfortunately I've found in the spiritual community much misinformation can tend to spread.
Especially with chakra work, and what working on one's chakras can and can't do.
I do chakra and energy work but I don't do a whole lot of spell work to be honest. Everyone's interpretation is different, but to me balancing and optimizing my chakras helps optimize my energetic work. If I'm out of whack I can't get a good feel of the flow of energy around me without bias. If you're interested in chakras the best way to get involved is in yoga practice and with mantras/mudras pertaining to each chakra.
There's some really good examples of this on yoga journal:
I can't do all of the poses but can manage modifications of most (and just skip headstand...). But it has some good introductory info. It's helpful to set aside some time with each chakra, to help identify what your strengths and weaknesses are. I like to do the yoga poses, meditate over it, and then journal. Specifically I think about what the chakra means to me, how it manifests in my life, and in what ways I have blockages or other problems. For example, I personally have a very strong third eye (it's the very first thing I sense when meditating) but have a weak throat chakra and found that I actually kind of avoid working with it. Maybe it's because I subliminally don't like the weakness. It's a very interesting journey into your spirituality and psyche, and if you are drawn to chakra work then I would encourage it.
In general, it's probably true that if your energy is blocked somewhere, you will have difficulty performing at least some types of spells. But this is the reason that people on this site (whether they believe in a chakra system or not) will encourage you to become well practiced in grounding, raising, and working with energy before trying any spells. The color of the candles, crystals, etc don't really mean much unless you can feel it out, raise the right energy, and use the items to help you channel it in the desired way. On the flip side, I don't think there is a way to unlock your chakras in a way to give you a supernatural degree of power (just to be clear).
TL;DR I think he might be concerned that you are not working with energy to your potential, and suggested a method that you might be able to use to reach your potential.
Hello. I am also new. I have been practicing on and off for almost 30 years. I have always had a strong calling and have had some success in spells. I am responding because I saw what you said about chakras. This is something that I felt I needed to do for about a year now but I am having a very hard time with meditation. If you could give me some tips I would really appreciate it. Please feel free to message me and read my bio.
