The 2 Most Common Mistakes New Witches Make And How To Avoid Them

New witches have the tendency to all make the same kinds of mistakes. It’s hard not to! We’re all swimming around in this information soup trying to figure out what’s important and what’s true or not.

IT CAN BE SO OVERWHELMING!

Today I’ll be talking about the 2 biggest mistakes that I see beginner witches making and what you can do about them.

Mistake #1 - New witches learn things in all the wrong order

This one is HUGE but we hardly ever talk about it!

People in witchy communities are always hearing the mantra of “learn as much as possible!” over and over and while that is great advice for beginners it’s often more of a bandaid than a real solution!

The problem comes when more experienced witches get asked “how do I get started?” and they immediately think back to how they started. I don’t want you to start how I started! I don’t want you to start how most of us started!

The majority of more experienced witches learned through just gulping down anything and everything they could find about the craft. Over a long period of time you learn to separate fact from fiction and you can be pretty sure that you haven’t missed anything crazy important.

This takes YEARS though.

And in the meantime while you’re sorting through all of that info you’re confused and lost and quite possibly missing some super vital pieces of information! After all you can’t know what you’re missing if you don’t even know it exists!

Why on earth would I want to tell you to do that when I already know what a beginner absolutely must learn to get a solid start in their craft?

This is the #1 reason why I decided to create my new course. I have been through this process, it bites. I want to give you a resource that will boost you through those initial learning phases not in years but in WEEKS.

I want you to be able to get to a place of confidence and comfortability without the confusion, the struggle and the endless amounts of research hoping you’re finding the information that you need.

Skip the struggle and let me show you everything you need to get started!

Mistake #2 - New witches end up trying to learn in a vacuum

There’s nothing worse than learning something completely by yourself. Often finding your way into witchy communities can be super hard. You may not know where to find them and then if you DO find them they can be pretty darn unfriendly to beginners!

Social media can be great but it can also feel like talking into a void!

What’s the point of even asking a question if all you’re going to hear back is crickets?

So instead you end up trying to figure things out all by yourself and without anybody to help it can feel like groping around in the dark for something that you only kind of know to look for.

Talk about frustrating!

In my traditional witchcraft course we circumvent these problems by giving you a community that is open to beginners and run by experts. You’ll have a place to ask questions, talk about your craft and interact with other witches right from day one!

You get real interaction in a safe environment without the hassle.

My goal is to help YOU become the confident, badass witch that you want to be. This can be such a difficult undertaking but it doesn’t have to be!

Beginners Guide To Being A Gay Part 2

Acceptance but not fully: So at this point you’re 16, starting the 9th grade, You’ve began to be comfortable with yourself slightly. Your not fully out of the ball park just yet. You don’t wanna seem like a stereotype, maybe your not out yet. You accepted yourself but are afraid nobody else will. You think about coming out to people but your hesitant. But at least you know who you like, you may want a secrete partner at this point due to the fact you see people getting into somewhat serious relationships. You start to feel lonely because other gay people haven’t made themselves known but remember you haven’t either.

3 things to note

1. Coming out at your age is risky. You have the potential to lose friends, and it could get back to the house if your siblings go to school with you. You’re not financially set at this age and you could be kicked out for telling your parents who you are. You need to be prepared for anything and everything. With all that being said I’m not telling you you can’t come out. I believe you’ll know when the time is right yourself. If you think everybody will be cool go for it. Remember coming out isn’t a mandatory thing lgbt people do. It’s on a if you wanna share go ahead bases but if you don’t want to you don’t have too.

2. Relationships can be complicated if your not out and the other person is and you have to take their feelings into account. I recommend staying away from relationships until you’re fully ready to be out of the closet or just do not give a fucked who knows about you and your partner being together. 3. People might start targeting you to bully you if they find out. The reason people pick on others is due to the fact they wanna feel a sense of power in their lives when they feel powerless in another setting/aspect of their own lives. Also they do it cause they wanna be liked by their group of friends and wanna look and act tough to sustain those friendships. I suggest you learn a set of skills to deal with asshats like that. Either have a sibling teach you how to defend yourself or ask parents for some kinda fight training and learn to whoop some ass because teachers will not always be on your side. I wish you luck.

Hi! I was trying to find witches who practice green witchcraft or work with plants. I am considering starting to grow flowers and cacti, probably in pots, but I was wondering if you know anything i should know before I start working with plants?

YES. I’m sorry if it’s a bit unorganized, I’m a wee tipsy.
🌿 Research how frequently you should water things. From seeds you always water daily but once they hit a certain age some plants definitely need less water. 
🌿 Adding citrus peels, egg shells, banana peels and coffee beans are a great natural munchie for plants - I wouldn’t suggest doing just coffee beans but a combination of any of them are fine. I wouldn’t suggest feeding them plant food until their adults though just because it’s really simple to over feed them. But it’s okay to throw some eggshells in the beginning.
🌿 Cacti are sweet babies! They’re low maintenance and great for beginners, if you haven’t looked into aloe I would. :)
🌿 Plants need different types of soil!!!! Make sure you give your babies the right type!! Most herbs/flowers will grow fine with generic plant soil but cacti need a combination of sand and soil. I wouldn’t suggest beach sand because it’s easily weighed down and your soil won’t be a solid mixture.
🌿 If your plant indoors you don’t have worms!! Oh no! Poke little holes in your soil (after their healthy sprouts) to make sure the soil isn’t compacted. 
🌿 Talk to them babies!! Feed them carbon dioxide!!!

Heyy I'm just beginning to learn about witch craft is there anything you could suggest that I should do or any advice on how to start once I've done all the studying!! Love your blog all the best!!

EA: So I’m an awful person who never checks their inbox and I apologize for replying so lately .-.  I’m glad that you enjoy my blog! To answer your question, here are some of my own tips!

  • Never stop researching! I’m sure that you’re doing plenty of studies yourself, but don’t forget that you can never learn absolutely everything there is to know about witchcraft. Ive been practicing for about two years or so, and I’ll probably consider myself a beginner even after twenty years of practice. 
  • Start out small. It’s like learning how to swim. You can’t just dive headfirst into twenty foot deep water. You can check my ‘simple spells’ tag for some easy spells that don’t require many ingredients. I’d also suggest that you avoid spells that are intended to produce major results, like love spells or revenge spells.
  • Learn about sigils. Sigils are simple and versatile. I have a ‘sigils’ tag where you can find ready made sigils, guides on how to make sigils, and even some tips on where to place sigils.
  • Try to incorporate witchcraft into your daily life through simple spells. For example, when cleaning your house, imagine that you’re cleansing the house of all negative energy and preparing the space to welcome positive vibes. Or maybe you could cook a recipe with basil to promote prosperity. Find some music that makes you feel powerful and witchy. Even meditation and grounding yourself is a good way to get more in touch with yourself.
  • NEVER perform a spell if you arent ready to accept the possible consequences. Trust me. Ive made this mistake, too. Before performing any sort of spell, think about what you’re about to do. Meditate and ask yourself, “Is this really what I want to happen?” This is especially important during cursing. I have quite an issue with my temper and I take so long to calm down before determining whether or not the person really deserves it. Most often, they don’t.
  • There is no ‘correct’ way to be a witch. Some witches have an entire garden of succulents, shelves overflowing with crystals, fifty sets of tarot decks, a handwritten grimoire, and an altar for every occasion. Other witches(including myself) don’t have anything else other than tumblr and some novelty playing cards. Just remember, ‘When there’s a will, there’s a way.’
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions. My ask box is always open and I have a ‘beginners guide’ tag. There are also plenty of other great blogs to follow about witchcraft.

EA: That’s all the advice I can think of at the moment, but please don’t hesitate to send in more questions if you’re curious! and check out my ‘beginners guide’ tag!! Good luck to you!

(Irish dance post) we had an 8-hand workshop tonight with a visiting teacher and!!! he called me out for having good technique on this one tricky step & they called other people over to watch me dance it!!! that is 100% the best compliment I have gotten since I started dancing!!!

anonymous asked:

Can I be a witch and not do spells? I like to use crystals and sigils and stuff, but idk... using spells gives me a weird vibe.

Hey!!

Well, I’m not exactly the authority on what makes someone a witch and what doesn’t, but in my opinion as long as you feel that what you are doing is witchcraft and therefore identify as a witch, that is 100% valid!!

Spells are not the only thing that makes someone a witch, not even close. You work with crystals? Crystal work and energy work are definitely under the witchcraft umbrella. Sigils? Heck yeah!! For sure!!

Even if all you did was light a candle now and then with intent, that in itself is the essence of what I believe witchcraft to be; harnessing and manipulating energy with intent.

I hope this answer isn’t too cheesy and perhaps resonates with you, anon~ ☺️xx

TL;DR: Yes. 😜

anonymous asked:

Hi, I'm a starting out witch that is 1) very much in the broom closet and 2) very poor. I want to learn the craft without confusion but unfortunately cannot afford your course, as much as I would love to take it. Do you have any suggestions for a starting point?

Of course! I have a free beginners class that you could check out if you like, I chat with dozen of people taking that course every day and help answer questions or point people toward resources.

If you’re not interested in that or have already taken it I would suggest keeping an eye out, in two days I’ll be posting the full curriculum for the 30 day course. It’s just a list of that subjects and techniques I focus on and the order in which they’re taught but you are MORE than welcome to take that list and use it as a sort of guide to direct your personal research.

Safety is always my first concern when educating new witches. Learning to banish, ward, cleanse and ground yourself are all important for building a solid magical foundation. If you’re lost as to where to look first, that’s what I would recommend.

Take every resource with a grain of salt (including mine). Learn to discern for yourself what you feel is true and what works for you!

anonymous asked:

hi! i hope this isnt too invasive, but how do you choose which gods and goddesses to worship? like how did you choose freyja? thank you in advance, i love your blog! <3

Hello, little love! It definitely is not invasive for me, I actually asked the gods! I asked if any of them were interested in building a relationship for me and I’ve been building relationships with them since.
But I know a lot of people choose through meditation and research!

Items to include in your Book of Shadows

Everyone’s book will be different because all Witches are different. This list is a bunch of examples I have come across over the years of things you could include in your BOS if you so desired. Nothing on this list is mandatory, nothing here is required. If you don’t know what something is, please feel free to ask! If you don’t think that something on the list is for you, awesome, don’t include it in yours.

Reading A Candle

Watch your candles closely and learn to read them to help you with your practice.

The Flame

A strong flame: It means that your energies are raised. There is a lot of power behind your spell and little to no resistance. Indicates that all your power and energy is focused on your manifestation. This is a good sign. If a candle shaped into a figure is used and has a strong flame it means that whoever it represents is either angry, winning, or using authority over another. When their are two figures the candle with the higher flame has authority over the other person.   

A weak flame: Indicates that the magick you cast is facing a heavy opposition and is a sign that you may need to recast your spell in order to overcome the opposing force. On a figure candle this may indicate that the representative may be loosing a battle or an argument. 

A jumping flame: This indicates strong emotions. There may also be some sort of resistance against you. Maybe close your circle and bring your mind back to focus before continuing. It may also mean an explosion of energy. When two figure candles are being used it often means that an energetic or a heated argument is taking place between them.  

A noisy candle: Indicates a conversation. It may may that a spirit is trying to send you a message or get in contact with you. The louder the noises get the more urgent communication must be. 

The flame catches something on fire: Someone one may be using malicious magick against you.  

A clean even burning candle: Means your spell and manifestations are likely to come true.

Fast Burn: The results of your spell will happen quickly.

Flickering Flame: If there is no breeze then it means a spirit is near by. If it is a devotional flame it means you were able to get in contact with your deity.

Cannot blow the flame out: A spirit may not be finished its conversation with you or you did not complete a spell. The spirit needs to complete its work, something may be may in the works that you do not want to interrupt. 

A flame goes out while burning: This means the spirits cannot help you and the answer you seek is already determined.  

The Smoke

Black smoke/soot: Your energy and magick is being blocked. Negative energy is being sent your way, whether as a curse or hex. You may soon be faced with tough challenges and a hard road ahead of you. 

Smoke wafts towards you: It means your call will likely be answered or your spell has been cast successfully. You will get results quickly.

Smoke wafts away from you: You must work harder in order for your calls to be answered.

Watch the direction the smoke wafts: East - Something powerful is assisting you, North - You are ready to begin your ritual and get results, South - The spell will be successful, West - A powerful interference from an outside force.

Smoking Candle: Negative energy is being burned away.

The Wax

When a candle leaves wax residue: Your spell may need to be repeated.

Look for symbols in the candle wax, like reading tea leaves.
