For your convenience, I’ve installed an online Book of Shadows @ The Witch’s Corner. This is a new illustrated edition…
This video contains questions posted by my blog readers at Magickal Connections. It consists of some pretty desperate personal situations along with how-to questions when it comes to some of the spells at my online Book of Shadows.
Please be respectful in the comments. There are a lot of people out there going through some very rough times. I know that sometimes it’s difficult to be objective, but that’s what I try very hard to do with each individual that submits a comment at my blog, website, or YouTube channel. With that said, note that I do not hesitate to give sound (sometimes difficult to listen to) mundane advice, especially when personal problems or issues are coming up due to poor decisions and life choices. We also have to realize that these brief comments don’t give us all the facts, and they come from unknown and unsubstantiated sources.
To my readers who posted these questions ~ I hope that you were able to find some help here, along with a little inspiration and encouragement! I wish you all the best on both your magickal and your mundane adventures.
Here’s mine. Would you like to share something about yours?… a comment, or a photo, or a video? When did you start it? What kinds of things do you add to it? How do you organize it? What are your future plans for it? Who are you going to pass it to? Do you let people see it, or are you very secretive about it? What inspires you?
Here you be, sez I. Follow this link, which will magickally transport you to The Witch’s Corner, where you’ll find a whole bunch of correspondences you’ll need to craft your spells successfully. This is “stuff” you’ll want to add to your own Book of Shadows. (You’re welcome!)
My Personal Book of Shadows ~
My Private Journals, Grimoires, & Notebooks ~
My personal book of shadows is one of my most treasured possessions. It’s not only full of spells, recipes for potions, and all the usual witchy things; it’s also full of photos, mementos, and things that make up a witch’s life as she travels her path.
If you haven’t started your book of shadows yet, I have a few helpful ideas; and if you do have a book of shadows, I hope you enjoy this video as I share mine with you…Blessings, Amythyst
Here’s my very own recipe from my very own Book of Shadows for Black Cat Oil!…I give you my ingredients, and we make a jar of BCO together. For more information on Cats, Cat Magick (including Black Cat Oil), Cat Correspondences, and Cat Superstitions, visit my blog (Magickal Connections) and this post: “Magickal Katz”… https://wytchymystique.com/2011/09/10/magickal-kat
I knew that there was something ‘different’ about me before I was old enough to know that there was a name for it. One of the earliest magickal experiences that I remember took place when I was about four years old, hidden in the cool shade of a grove of trees on a terraced hillside at my grandmother’s farm.
The day was very hot, but beneath the canopy created by the large grove of trees that covered the hillside, it was very cool; and I squatted on one of the wide terraced ‘steps’, beneath a tree that had small round leaves lining it’s branches. I took hold of one of the small new twigs at the base of the tree; and I slid my hand along it’s length, filling my palm with the cool green leaves.
As my head was bent and I was examining these leaves, I heard a noise. I looked to my right, through the fence lining this edge of the grove, into the world of brilliant hot sunshine, to see a large white cow grazing in the field beside me, only a few feet away.
The wind came then, through the tops of the trees. I froze as I listened to it, the roar starting at the opposite end of the grove and working it’s way through the tree tops towards me, till it was directly overhead. I realized that this wind sounded like voices, voices that seemed to come directly from the trees.
It was then that a realization dawned on me, leaving an indelible print so strong that this memory is still starkly vivid to me fifty years later. It was a realization that I was too young to form into words…but I knew.
