5 Awesome Ways To Cast Spells Without Any Tools

If I collect every witchcraft related item that I own together it all fits into one small basket, with room to spare. More often than not my spells are whispered incantations, hastily drawn sigils or entirely performed in my head. I have spent months of my life thinking I was a bad witch because I never did “real” spells! What I didn’t realize back then was that I WAS doing real spells and I was doing them VERY well because I was managing to produce powerful magical results with NO tools or ingredients.

How To Create A Charm For Safe Travels

You never want to be caught unawares in a bad situation! This charm wards the traveler against three common travel dangers: getting stranded, physical harm, and theft.

Musings On Trust, Magic, & My Place In The Universe

Without trust my magic is weak and witchcraft feels useless and flat. Trust in my own ability and trust in the willingness of the universe to work with me instead of against me is the core of my magic.

Fire is a very familiar part of witchcraft for most practitioners. Candle spells, incense and burned offerings are a regular part of our lives. Oftentimes, anything more than a candle flame seems out of reach for many of us though. Nowadays fewer homes have fireplaces and many towns and cities have laws prohibiting the lighting of outdoor fires. Cauldron fires present a solution to this problem.

How To Make Black Salt & What It’s Used For

Black salt is a very handy ingredient to have in your cupboard, it can be used for protection, banishing and breaking hexes and can also be used for laying simple hexes and curses of your own.

How To Make Your Home a Magical Sanctuary

Integrating your craft into your home can be a daunting task. Unless you’re just a stellar housekeeper your home is likely at least a little messy all of the time. Unopened mail might still be sitting on the counter, that pile of laundry that you just didn’t get to this week is still on the floor or maybe you’ve just got a little extra clutter from too many missed spring cleanings. Despite how much these things can make your space feel distinctly un-magical, making your home into a sacred place for yourself can be quite simple.
