Love Spell @>---}----

OK here is a love spell that worked for me.
Ground and center yourself.
Spend 5 min meditating on true Love
Then go to a social networking site (For me it was FB)
and Post a Poem that you write searching for true love
I'm posting mine here to give you some ideas, but it is important that you write your OWN so that you put as much of your energy into it.


The Wind softly whispers, through the cool fall air.....
Tell me that my true love is out there, somewhere....
Where to look it does not say....
Just that love is on it's way....
Trust in love, It'll happen in time....
I just can't wait, 'til your heart reaches mine.

While you write your poem think about the qualities that you desire in your soul mate. Do not think about any specific person, this is to attract your match not someone specific that you desire. Which would be going against free will and can have dire consequences.

Once you post your poem, go on about your life and forget about. Dwelling on it will draw energy away from it and make it take longer, or backfire completely.

For me this worked Within 9 days.... I was drawn to the profile of another person and I posted a comment to her and, things just went GREAT from there. We have so much in common and are constantly keeping each other smiling and laughing.

Good luck and great romances

Why do Plants have Magickal properties

Plants are Magickal because they grow using ALL 5 of the magickal elements.

Earth: Plants roots grow down into the Earth to draw nutrients from it.

Air: Plants draw Carbon dioxide from the air and utilize it in it's photosynthesis process

Fire: Plants use the chlorophyll in it's leaves to harness the energy from the Sun's fire as a catalyst in the photosynthesis process

Water: Plants draw water in through it's roots and leaves. It turns water, CO2 and Sunlight into a sugar rich sap/ nectar whic is the plants food

Spirit: As with every other living being on the planet, plants are imbued with the spirit of the divinity within it.

Essential Oils, Tinctures, Hydrosols and infusions

Caution: Before making anything that may be used topically or ingested, know about ALL of the properties of the ingredients you will be using and HOW they interact will each other.

That being said, on with the post.
Essential oil: Are oils that are derived from any botanical source, that is said to contain the "Essence" of said plant

Extracting an essential oil, can be a daunting task. 
There are 3 methods (That I know of) to extract essentials

1. compression: taking the botanical in question an pressing it until you extract the oils you desire. (Works best on high yield botanical. such as fruit skins. Especially citrus fruits)

2. submerged distillation: Placing the plant material directly in a solution of water, and boiling that water into a condenser/separator
(You can build a distiller like this reasonably affordably with a large chili style pot, a large metal salad bowl, a brick with a flat top and bottom, a collection dish [that will not melt under moderate heat] and ice)

3. Steam distillation: similar to the previous except that the botanical are placed in a tray that sits above the water line and the steam passes through them. 

Hydrosols: is a term for water that has some plant essence in it. When essential oils are extracted through distillation the water that is separated off, is a hydrosol. Some of the most popular hydrosols are rose-water and sage-water.

Infusions: A carrier oil that is infused with the essence of your botanicals.

1. choose your carrier oil. Any that don't have a strong scent or flavor of their own will do. I like vegetable oil or grapeseed oil.

2. boil you oil in a pot (Oil only: the temp that oil boils at would likely damage your botanicals essentials)

3. place your botanicals into a jar(one that can handle HOT temps) and fill it halfway with your botanicals

4. turn off your oil and allow to cool until it stops bubbling. Pour oil into jar until just below the hip.

5. Allow jar to cool to room temp before sealing 

6. wait at least one week for essences to acclimate into the carrier. For added potency I like to leave the jar where it can collect moonlight (I also like to leave it from one full moon to the next)

Tinctures: same concept as an infusion except rather than using a heated oil, you use an odorless, and tasteless alcohol to capture the essentials. (Most commonly used is Vodka)
You need to use a high proof alcohol (80 or better) and use colored glass jars (Brown is preferred) as tinctures are photoreceptive and excess light may effect the quality of your product.

Energy balls

To create an energy ball:

Begin by holding your hands together in a standard "prayer" position, then rub them back and forth. Generating heat by the friction. After you have a nice heat built up, stop, keeping your hands together. Imagine ALL of the heat you built up grouping together into a ball in the palms of your hands. Gently separate your palms, to allow the energy ball to grow.

Energy balls can be used for all sorts of purposes, from healing, to Reiki, to emotional transference.

Spelling lesson 2

                               Okay say you want to do a spell and the first thing you do is google up the spell you want to do. Well don't stop there. What you want to do is research as many similar spells to it as you can, pull out the things that appeal to you and use them to embellish YOUR spell.

It is important that you make any spell you do YOUR spell. What I mean by that is that you have to tweak it until it 1.) fits your need 2.) feels right to you.

You have to put alot of yourself into a spell to empower it to work the magick for you.

Often times the spells you'll find on the web, you'll find that you don't have the ingredients for, or they just don't seem right to you. Which is OK because every person is unique and what works for some doesn't necessarily work for all.

The MOST important ingredients in any spell are a touch of personalization by you and YOUR BELIEF that it will work

Find a niche

A word of advice, for those that are just getting started following the path.

There are Soooooo many things that you can and might want to learn in witchcraft. So many in fact that if you tried to learn them all at once, you'll likely become overwhelmed and not learn those things as well as you'd like.

Pick one or two things that particularly appeal to you and learn those. Once you become skilled or adept at those things, then choose a few more.
