The 6 Principles Of Sympathetic Magic & How To Use Them

Sympathetic magic, sometimes called imitation magic, is a creative and intuitive form of witchcraft. The concept behind this magic is that objects that resemble each other (in appearance or energetic qualities) have a connection and can affect each other. Sympathetic magic is all about exploring the connection between those two objects through witchcraft. 

There are several ways to interpret this connection, and you might find that you’ve already been making many of these connections in your own witchcraft subconsciously or through your own personal associations.

Stop Using These 6 Plants In Your Witchcraft Immediately

While many witches are solitary, this doesn’t exempt us from considering our impact on the collective whole of the planet and society. In fact, with so many of us holding beliefs like animism, polytheism, and working with the energetic forces of the world around us, it would be insane for us to NOT consider the implications of our craft on the world at large. Can you imagine how off kilter you could get if you focused only on your own energy and never thought about how the energies of people and places around you could impact your wellbeing and magic? In the same way, it doesn’t make sense for us to ignore the impact of our practices on the world and in the case of these 6 plants, that impact is huge.

4 Terrific Spells For Bringing Happiness Into Your Life

I’ve been reading about happiness and joy lately. It’s one thing everybody wishes they had more of in their lives but struggle with. Sometimes we’re happy and don’t realize it, looking back fondly at better times without enjoying the moment we’re living in. Sometimes happiness feels out of reach because we see our happiness tied inextricably with the accomplishment of a goal or the acquisition of a thing we want. If I had A, B or C, then I’d be happy. Whatever the reason for our perceived unhappiness, as witches we have the special ability to focus and manifest happiness pretty simply.

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.

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.
