I have a close family member who is inconsolable with an unidentified depression and sickness. I'm very concerned. A white candle with a piece of white paper under it is a great staple item remedy. I positioned reflective items around the candle to magnify more light into the area.

Leave candles untouched and don't move spells. That is what they say. Many great things have been learned by people over the years, but you don't have to stick to these things. I moved the whole display into the sun this afternoon to better suit my needs. Your dabbling is your creation, make up your own rules and even language if you like. For example, I was raised Christian Scientist (which is a dwindling religion based on eastern mysticism in a Christ like format founded by a rather psychic aristocrat from the Victorian era into Spiritualism named Mary Baker Eddy) and on the seal of the religion it says "Heal the sick / Raise the dead / Cleanse the lepers / Cast out demons". I'm not a big fan of Christ based anything, but I read some Mary Baker Eddy. I've changed "Cast out demons" to "Cast UP demons". Everything should have a chance to improve itself and giving something wicked an opportunity at some light is often all it needs to get get out!

When I was a child I had to have a crystal ball so my dad took me to a magic shop on madison avenue to get one. I spent hours in the sun and by candlelight glaring at it waiting to see something. Before 12 years old I was allowed to buy whatever occult literature I wanted as it was clearly a passion of mine and my parents thought it was very amusing. Years later as an adult some guy I was fooling around with somehow got a hold of my dad's crystal ball and was about to... do something with it, to my horror. I was put off quickly and let's just say we had to wrap it up. Sheesh. By the way, I can't wait to get magical inscriptions on my hands!

When locked away in a Judeo-Christian wasp athletics based boarding school from 12 years old on my occult mail order book purchases and correspondence with practicing people across the nation and in England skyrocketed. Fearful of exposure I kept what I needed in a trunk and transcribed what I wanted into a Book of Shadows with a quill pen and India ink. I would then get rid of the books and correspondence. I still have the book and dusted it off and it's an amazing piece of work I must say. Every letter is miniscule and written with a calligraphic or artistic flourish. It goes on for pages, I don't know how I did it. I had the copper pentacle above made by some Witches in Salem through Laurie Cabot at the time I was in this awful school. The artists, Gypsy & Pendragon, etched the pentacle with a laser, which was very high tech and expensive at the time.
I haven't used it in a while. It's very beautiful.

What a wild mystical history you have. Love the wrist tattoo, by the way. Is it a raven?

sort of, yes. i have a sparrow on each hand but to mix it up a little we put a raven like head on the left hand.

yeah my parents thought my interest was really cute and didn't take it very seriously and I don't take it too seriously. Shortly after they found their little boy naked in a circle of fire.

I thought they were swallows.
