Spells and Magickal Etiquette


This is only a guide and does not express the opinions of all Wiccans and Pagans. Use this list and add more to it if you desire.

* Remember the Wiccan Rede . . . “Do as you will, and harm none.”.

* Never do magick or a spell that seeks to control anyone else. That includes spells you think are for their own good. Never try to dominate another through magick. This rule makes loves spells controversial.

* Only cast a spell for another person if they have asked you to do so. Then ONLY do the exact spell that they have asked for…do not add to or take away from what they have specified.

* There are exceptions to every rule for example, animals, the sick and elderly, minors, physically disabled or other persons who are under your care. Always check carefully to make sure you’re magick is within the Divine will.

* Think all magick through thoroughly. Try NOT to do magick that affects a whole community (i.e. weather magick). Weather magick will change the natural pattern . . . You could be responsible for far-off droughts or floods. Which in turn affects farmers and their crops and livestock. Which directly affects their income.

* Be respectful to your magick. Always perform your spells in places where you can remain focused and uninterrupted.

* Clean up your magickal/sacred space before you begin. Use your besom and/or vaccum, dust, consecrate your tools, when wiping things down use salt water for purification, censor or walk the area with a incense stick or cone.

*Clean up your magickal/sacred space residue. Release the  elements and deities, thank them or show appreciation for their presence, erase signs and symbols, and open the circle before you leave.

*Try not to leave your circle during rituals and spell casting but if you must, ALWAYS cut a door/opening with your wand, athame or index finger of your power hand.

Knot/Cord Magick…Why Isn’t It As Popular As Candle and Incense Magick


Knot magick also known as cord magick,  is no less effective than any other form of magick. So why isn’t it used as often?Many Witches/Wiccans have never even heard of it.

Knot magick is a form of spell work that is less well-known than some others, but is no less powerful.

The only material you need to perform a knot spell is a cord of some kind. Anything will do, but make sure it is long enough to hold all your knots and the material of the cord should be natural. Craft shops are great sources for lengths of cord made from silk, cotton, hemp, leather, wool or even ribbon. Choose a colour to match the intention of the spell.

You can use your cord as-is, but to add more of your personal energy to the spell, you can also braid it before working the knots. Obviously, the material needs to be fairly thin or the resulting cord will be too thick to hold the knots. You can combine colors too, to more finely tune the color energy to your needs. Make sure you have a sufficient length of material, as it will shorten up considerably when braided. Focus on your purpose as you braid your cord.

Once you have your cord ready, it’s time to make the spell. Any purpose can be used with cord magick, but spells that involve binding are more appropriate. I don’t mean binding of another person necessarily, but any kind of ‘tying up’ or ‘holding fast’. Some examples might be: spells to eliminate bad habits, to help keep emotions in check, to bind up an illness, or to secure a new job.

A typical or traditional knot spell has nine knots, and the words spoken are shown below. You concentrate and focus your energy on your purpose, and repeat each line as you tie each knot. But you could also choose a number of knots to match your purpose (numerologically speaking), and you can recite your own words as well.

Your magick will continue to work as long as the knots are tied. Once your goal has manifested itself, you should dispose of the cord without untying the knots. Burning or burying it are two options, so long as your cord is made from natural materials. You could also just keep the knotted cord tucked safely away.

Traditional Nine Knot Spell
By the knot of one, the spell’s begun
By the knot of two, I make it true
By the knot of three, so mote it be
By the knot of four, the open door
By the knot of five, the spell’s alive
By the knot of six, the spell is fixed
By the knot of seven, the earth and heaven
By the knot of eight, the stroke of fate
By the knot of nine, the thing is mine

How To Make A Homemade Tincture


Here are easy instructions on how to make herbal or flower Tinctures. These are just a few quick guidelines to get you started. Once you are accustomed to the technique add more or less of your chosen ingredients.
Whether dried or fresh herbs and flowers are used is completely up to the practitioner. I use both and get great results every time.

What You Will Need to Make a Natural Herbal  Tincture

*Herbs or Flowers
*Vodka, distilled water or vinegar
*Mason Jar or any type of glass jar (even a jelly jar)
Always use glass NEVER plastic, plastic absorbs the fragrances

There are several items that you will need to make your own tinctures. First you need either dried or fresh herbs. Vodka at least 80 proof to cover the herbs (make a non-alcoholic tincture using distilled water, or vinegar. a vinegar tincture will have to be refrigerated). Mason jars with lids. Lastly, labels for the jars.

You will need 7-10 ounces of herbs for every quart of vodka, brandy or rum. I don’t measure, I just place enough herbs/flowers or both into a glass jar and pour just enough Vodka to cover it.

Put the lid tightly on the jar, place in a dark place area (such as back of a cabinet or closet) and shake 1-2 times a day for at least two weeks. When you are ready to use your plant based mixture, give it one final good shake and strain. I use panty hose to strain.

Alcohol based tinctures can last up to 5 years when prepared properly. I make my tinctures to prepare botanical perfume so I don’t worry about expiration.

If you reside with someone struggling with addiction. Please make a non-alcoholic tincture.

Personal Protection Shields-part 1


Good shielding requires you to have some level and knowledge of visualization techniques, which may be combined with meditation. Basic energy sensing and manipulation is also helpful, but not required.

There are quite a number of people who can sense aspects about other people. Some people can “read” other people if they are not well shielded.

There are some people who are so negative that they drain other people mentally, emotionally, physically and psycologically. We all know someone who can ruin the best day and make us feel tired or even physically ill. Strong and Effective shielding can reduce or eliminate this.

Basic Techniques – Visualizations
The basic techniques for shielding are very simple, but require quite a bit of practice to be effective.

Beginner Visualization (The Egg)
The most basic shielding technique involves visualizing a barrier around yourself. The most basic barrier is probably the sphere or egg of white light.

Ground and center your energy using whatever method works best for you. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for a few minutes. Allow yourself to see your body with your mind’s eye. Hold this image until it becomes stable. Now see your skin begin to glow with white light. Allow this light to become a layer that covers your entire body. Let it expand to be as thick as you think it needs to be and continue to grow outward. As it moves away from the surface of your body, it becomes a glowing white egg (or sphere) encircling you from all directions. Allow it to expand to the edge of your personal comfort zone. Know that you are safe within this space, and allow yourself to feel calm. Hold this image firmly in your mind for several minutes before opening your eyes.

Use this visualization whenever you feel you need protection, and particularly before doing any other energetic or psychic work. It is also a good practice to begin your day with this visualization and to consciously draw your attention toward the mental image of your shield throughout the day whenever you think about it or whenever you are faced with drama or negative energy.

Homemade Cream Deodorant Recipe


Making deodorant at home is so easy and you probably already have the ingredients in your kitchen or bathroom. There are so many synthetic and questionable ingredients in store bought deodorant why not give it a try.

Now keep in mind that this is deodorant NOT anti-perspirant. So you will still sweat, but your sweat will not stink. Your body needs to sweat and expel toxins. Anti-perspirants trap those odors in. Technically sweat doesn’t have an odor it’s the bacteria on your skin that produces the odor.

Ingredients Needed-

Coconut oil  or Vegetable Shortening

Cornstarch

Baking Soda

Tables spoons

glass bowl

Preparation-

Scoop 5 tbsp of coconut oil and place in the bowl.Then scoop 1 tbsp each of cornstarch and baking soda and mix until creamy.

Thats it.

This recipe is so effective and a little goes a long way.

This isn’t the recipe I use on my website but I highly recommend it to anyone who is choosing go natural.

I have deodorant for sale on my website (in bar form) that is just as effective as store brands.
