How To Unlock The Secret Of Intentions

In any discussion about witchcraft, intention is bound to come up. It seems like people are always throwing that word around when they’re discussing spells and casting methods. It doesn’t matter what kind of magic you’re doing, whether it’s a candle spell or a potion, a sigil or astral traveling, intention is at the core of all of it. That leads us to a little problem though, nobody ever seems to explain what intention IS. It’s time to remedy that. If you’re going to be using magic, you need to understand it!

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!

If it’s energy that you have suppressed and it now resides in your subconscious, it is considered shadow energy.
