We Never Stop Learning

Don’t ever be fooled into thinking the craft is not old. It truly is. Wicca is very new. It came about 10 years before I was born. But witchcraft itself is very old. And it isn’t the same as it started. Today we have coloured candles, crystals, exotic herbs and spices. And of course the internet. Witchcraft has evolved and grown as the centuries have passed; as it should. And we as witches, have also evolved and grown.

And the only way that this can happen is to be always open to learning new things. We learn from our own discoveries and from one another, and that’s how it should be. If you close yourself from learning you will not grow as a witch or as an individual. There will always be those who have been on this path many years who feel nobody can teach them anything new. But they’re very wrong. And those you learn from don’t need to have been on the path as long as yourself. We can still learn even from the younger and less experienced.

I do believe witches of the past would have met up with others. Swapped ideas, recipes and experiences.

Often people will use the term ‘eclectic witch’, but I feel we were always eclectic. Always gathering ideas, new spells and so on from others we met. From various traditions around even our own country. So I must admit I dislike that term as we are all eclectic whether you’ll admit it or not. The moment you read a book written by another witch you are learning new things from another witch. You are gathering new ideas and ways.

So never stop learning. Keep evolving and growing. And share with others. No matter your path or how long you have been walking it, you are always learning, growing. You are always gathering and adding to your personal collection of knowledge!

It’s Not The Tools…

This is absolutley true. Doesn’t matter how pretty your athame is. Or how much you spend on all your knick knacks…it’s  YOU who has the power to make the spell work.  Your intent is everything.

This is why you shouldn’t do magick when your heart is filled with negative feelings or if you are  unwell don’t do spellcrafting. I have always said there is no such thing as white or black magick, only grey. Every spell, good or bad, has the potential to switch and become the opposite if the casters intent wills it, even if it isn’t intended.

So before you start take an emotional check on how you are feeling inside!

Favourite Books

A very short post for me. It’s just a few of my Witchcraft books, three by Scott Cunningham and one by Lexa Rosean.
If you like to make potions  etc I highly recommend Scott’s ‘Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs’ and ‘Potions, Oils & Brews’. I would also recommend purchasing a couple of good identification books for wild flowers and plants and also one for herbs.
I also recommend  Lexa’s ‘Encyclopedia of Magickal Ingredients’ that doesn’t just include herbs, but such things as iron nails and egg (though as a vegan I’m unlikely to use egg now).
I have done a reviews of Scotts Magical Herbalism Book here!
I shall share more favourite books at a later date.
