How To Work Magic With Poppets

In the witchcraft tradition, poppets are dolls made to represent a specific person for a magical purpose. Each poppet is unique because it is made by the witch who is casting the spell. Many people associate this magical tool with curses, but it’s like any other magical tool. Sure, poppets can be used to curse, but they’re also used for healing, manifesting, and protection spells.

6 Tarot Spreads To Improve Your Shadow Work

Shadow work is a practice of healing any behaviors, emotional wounding, limiting beliefs, self-sabotage, or blocks that are buried in your subconscious. This work is important for witches because many of our spells are powered by our thoughts and emotions. Because most our thoughts and emotions happen within our shadow side, our subconscious, taking a long, hard look at those thoughts and emotions can help us release any hidden resistance that hinders our spells. Tarot is an ideal tool to use in this work!

Dirt is quite possibly the most underestimated magical tool in all of witchcraft. It’s free. You can find it virtually anywhere.

How To Do Shadow Work In Your Magic And Why You Need It

Just like the moon, we also hold dual energies. We have our conscious mind, which is often associated with “light” energy. Then we have our subconscious mind—our “shadow” energy. Though many people think of shadow energy as negative and light energy as positive, it’s not that simple. Shadow energy can be positive or negative. If it’s energy that you have suppressed and it now resides in your subconscious, it is considered shadow energy.

Music as a magical medium is nothing new. Witches have long turned to music to not only set the mood but also as part of their craft. Because although candles and incense do a great job of making a ritual feel witchy, music is different. Some say music and the physical effect it has on us is magic unto itself.

This is the spell music casts on all of us.

How To Use Psychology To Guide Your Color Magic

As you grow into your craft, you’ll learn that witchcraft isn’t a cookie cutter endeavor like school or a random job, with a one-size-fits-all method for success. You develop your own style, you learn what works for you, and you find new ways to practice. I tend to think that the point of most things is to evolve and grow into something better over time.
