All That Ego…

I’ve had a couple of interesting interactions, one of which was only this morning on Facebook. There are a small handful of reasons I will interject my opinion on a Facebook post in witchcraft groups; There’s misinformation. The practice is unsafe (particularly around baneful ingredients). There’s cultural misinformation. Someone is gatekeeping where an what theyContinue reading “All That Ego…”

Understanding Hoodoo

I’m going to uncover some myths and home truths about Hoodoo. This blog is aimed at those who are unfamiliar with the practice and have had very little exposure to it. So to start with I will have a list of things to keep in mind; Hoodoo and Voodoo are separate. Hoodoo is the practiceContinue reading “Understanding Hoodoo”

Spell Work 101

Spells, magic, conjure, rootwork, mojo, manifestation, what ever you want to call it, it’s all pretty similar in nature. So what do you need to know about making magic? Intent + ritual = manifestation. Simples! Well there are a few things I’m going to go over here which may feel like a bit of aContinue reading “Spell Work 101”

Culture and Appropriation

I hot topic I was hoping I didn’t have to cover. Unfortunately, cultural appropriation always feels like the elephant in the room. The first thing I want to address is that I’m not telling anyone what they should or shouldn’t do within their practice. The second is that only you can determine your entitlement toContinue reading “Culture and Appropriation”

Shadow Work

Shadow work is less magic and more self care. It is a type of self therapy that centres around journaling and using prompts and self assessment to uncover repressed feelings, emotions and experiences. The shadow self is comprised of all the parts of our personality that we are unaware of. Some of it is shapedContinue reading “Shadow Work”

Depending on the type of divination and depth of theContinue reading “Divination – But What Does It Mean?!?!”

My First Week of Ancestor Veneration

Last Sunday I took the time to set up my Ancestor Altar with the intent of deepening my connection to my ancestors, my family past and present, and deepening my spirituality. The first three days were turbulent. I don’t think there is another way to describe it. Sometimes I felt hot and flushed, I wasContinue reading “My First Week of Ancestor Veneration”

The Ancestors

We often talk about The Ancestors as some ominous entity. But they aren’t. Also, anyone who says that ancestral work is a “closed practice” is fundamentally incorrect. Why you ask? Because we ALL have ancestors! Almost every religion or culture believes that our ancestors are watching over us and guiding us. We seek mediums andContinue reading “The Ancestors”

Bide the Wiccan Rede I must?

One thing I’ve mentioned and I want to explore more is why I stopped identifying as Wiccan. When I was younger I viewed the world through rose coloured glasses, and this lasted well into my 20’s. At 29 I was running my own business, a single mum and had just bought a house and land.Continue reading “Bide the Wiccan Rede I must?”

Circle Casting

Let’s dive into some magic! Circle casting is bread and butter when it comes to Witchcraft. I’m going to talk about basic circle casting, and everything I write is interchangeable according to your religion or type of witchcraft you practice. While you don’t always need to cast a circle, I encourage newer practitioners to alwaysContinue reading “Circle Casting”
