I would like to speak about the Art of Witchcraft and all the magical & wonderful things that I feel it consists of!
I would like to first start this with a quote by Aleister Crowley–I feel he said it well with this!
It takes practice however, and focus in order to understand what you’re doing, depending on your methods! Much of how I perform my magick is by way of working with the Underworld–if I am looking to change something about the way that I think or perceive reality then I go straight towards my subconscious mind in the Underworld. If I”m looking to change things in the physical realm I go to the uppers–I work with the planets, themselves!
However these aren’t my only ways but they are my ways if I’m looking to cause change with depth or long lasting! But I shall start by explaining something much more practical.
When I first began witchcraft back in 2006–I simply began by lighting an incense with the appropriate scent–for example I wanted to purify the energies of my home and/or my aura–So I chose Dragons Blood. They say that the herbs have magickal properties. This is true but whats even more magickal than simply believing that the herbal incense is purifying you–is
the fact that you have set your intention, then you release that intention by lighting the incense. You brought your wish into the physical by performing a sort of small “ritual”.
Yes, simply lighting an incense can be seen as ritual!
What this does is programs your subconscious mind into carrying out your will as it is sent out into the cosmos by the smoke of your incense. But on a more practical level—it also trains your mind to switch its own experience from whatever at the current moment into whatever feeling it connects to feeling purified. Or the process of becoming purified. Some would ask does this make the magick real?
