How To Use Magic To Find Your Direction In Life

While there are lots of personality tests and career assessments available no one can tell you what you love better than you. Finding this truth may be hard for some because it’s been suppressed or never fully explored. Perhaps you showed an interest in art as a child, but this was never supported, or worse, it was ridiculed. Maybe you, like many, felt pressure to follow a different path that wasn’t your own but pleased someone else. The good news is that even though this purpose hasn’t fully bloomed yet, it’s never too late, and you have the answer (and power to change) within. You just have to find it.

How To Strengthen Your Magic With Number Symbolism

Naturally, because numbers feature so prominently in our lives, and always have, they have a mighty significance in the realm of magic and the occult. Witches use numbers in so many aspects of their craft that numbers have become their own crucial component, as much as anything else. We don’t randomly use five anise seeds in a powder or set up two candles or recite an incantation three times; we use certain amounts because of what these numbers represent to us. In this article, I’d like to explore the power of numbers and share some magic centered on numbers to illustrate how you can use them to enhance your witchcraft!

How To Easily Cleanse Your Hotel Room On Your Next Adventure

Hotels, vacation rentals, and any other spaces where many people have been living and sleeping will likely hold strong energy. It’s more noticeable than the energy of a coffee shop or other public space because people will do things in a hotel room that they wouldn’t necessarily do in public. For example, they might have a heated argument with a loved one or have a good long cry about something. Depending on when the space was last cleansed, it could hold a mixture of energy going back for years. No witch wants to waste their vacation being plagued by that kind of energy so today we’re going to talk about some easy ways that you can cleanse your hotel room and make the most of your travel time.

How are you supposed to troubleshoot your spells, design your own rituals, or make informed decisions about your craft if you don’t actually understand the mechanisms behind it?
