This is a charging board!

It is a simple way to charge up and cleanse your crystals without having to focus on visualisation. Simply put your crystal in the center of a piece of paper, and write around it two categories of words: the things you want to fill your crystal with, and the things you want out of them. Then draw arrows pointing into the crystal for the positives, and away from it for the negatives.

This is a visual way to charge/cleanse without having to maintain focus. I’m certain it could work for any object you want to use, not just crystals!

Magical Visualization - Some Basics

When I started practicing I was practically tormented by all this talk of visualization. “Visualize the energy going in to the candle.” “Visualize yourself being purified.” “Visualize the spell going to its destination.” I mistakenly believed that visualization meant I had to see the thing with my eyes, or have it play out like a movie when my eyes were closed. I think when it comes to understanding visualization, the first step is,

Don’t be overly concerned with “seeing” things. Witchcraft is heavily involved with expanding yourself, connecting with the world, and sensing energies around you. Don’t throw that all away and focus on one single sense.

I think that instead of focusing so much on sight, we can say that visualization = imagination + willpower.

Raise your hand if you’ve ever had a daydream so real that it very much affected you. Or if you’ve ever imagined someone saying something so clearly in your mind that it affected how you truly think about them. What happens in your mind and your imagination isn’t fake or non-real. As a witch, you need to expel the concept that what happens in your head doesn’t affect real life. Imagination is the basis of visualization.

When a guide or spell says “put a lot of energy in to…” or, “raise energy…” or something similar, it is partially talking about using your willpower (there are other ways to work with energy but this is an important and basic one). Have you ever wanted something so much that it hurts, or thought something so intensely that it made you shake? Have you ever held an image in your mind so dearly and desperately that you felt it was more real than the real world, almost as if it was a physical thing sitting in your head? You were using willpower to raise energy. That is why these experiences can be so draining - we gather our own energy, release it, and then we’re drained.

If a spell says, “visualize the candle being filled with pure golden light,” simply try imagining it to be so. Imagine it so vibrantly and willfully that you are lost within your own mind and the real world is a step away. Put so much force in to it that you are actually physically exhausted. Don’t be concerned about headaches, nausea, dizziness, or other physical symptoms. These are a part of witchcraft. Go outside, draw up energy from the earth, and have a meal afterwords. Then go back to that candle, hold it, and ask your imagination, “what’s in there?” You may be surprised at what you find.

There are other ways to sense and work with energy besides visualization. Some people have a strong talent for feeling, “knowing”, or sensing in other ways. Witchcraft is about self-exploration, don’t shoe-horn yourself in to a corner just because other people put such a heavy emphasis on visualizing.

Miscellanea: I recommend you learn how to ground, center, and borrow energy from the earth or other sources before you try this kind of work. If you have any doubts about witchcraft being ‘real’, you won’t after a shitty night full of nausea, migraines, and exhaustion brought on by over-exerting yourself without the ability to come back to reality and recharge.

Charming jewelry

Charming and charging jewelry is another of my fave types of magic, because its very easy and like a lot of easy magic can be very powerful! You dont need to have intricate complicated spells to achieve great magic, u can have these powerful results in small magic. This is also useful for nd witches who dont have a lot of energy or just low energy witches in general. It can be any jewelry, i find ones that hold sentimental value work the best. You take it and cleanse it (I always cleanse mine with sage) and then focus on putting your intent into it. I envision a white light engulfing the item while focusing on what i want this item to do for me: whether that be give me confidence or boost my shield or increase my energy, whatever you want.

Charming jewelry isnt always easy, if its new or something you dont feel that connected with or even sometimes simple cleansing and charging doesnt work, you may have to wear it for a while for it to absorb your energy before you can put your intent into it. I usually have to break new jewelry in before im able to put intent into it, but this is not always the case! If youre good with sensing energy like me you may have an easier time knowing when its ready and when its not, but if you arent very good at energy work i suggest you break it in for maybe a week before trying to charm it.

Witch's Guide To Charging

Charging is the act of filling or refilling an object with energy. You have probably read tips on how to recharge crystals or dress a candle. Witches work with power and charging an item is an elementary skill.

When charging, be aware of whether you are replenishing the natural energy of the item, or filling it with a new, “artificial” energy.

If you are using an item for it’s natural energies, it does not make much sense to alter them.

Most cheap paraffin candles will probably be charged with ‘artificial’ energy since they don’t contain much of their own.

Charging is very commonly done with visualization. This guide focuses on charging through visualization. Check out that visualization post real quick so we’re all on the same page.

The intensity described in the visualization article is best attempted only if you know how to ground. Start gently to avoid unpleasant physical symptoms.

1 - Connect with the item. Gently hold or touch the item until you feel connected with it. This will take some practice. You may feel a headache, an intuitive understanding that you have 'reached’ it, or any other number of signs. Do not obsess over being given a big sign, just trust the little ones you are given. This step will become quicker and quicker with practice and experience.

Maintain this connection through step 2.

2 - Focus on the type of energy you wish to impart. For practice and most basic spells, focus on a pure white light (also try charging something with your unique energy). To recharge an object’s natural energies, focus on a neutral, 'transparent’ energy that the object may absorb and adjust to its vibrations. Focus on building this kind of energy in your mind or body. As with the connection, everyone feels it differently. You may feel a pressure in your head or body, an intense tingling or buzzing, or nothing except visualization and “knowing”. Respect your signs and don’t insist on other, 'witchier’ cues.

In the beginning, do not focus on building huge amounts of energy. These are harder to work with. Just collect a nice little sized ball.

3 - Send the energy to the item. If you have lost your connection with the item, 'hold’ the energy and reconnect. Holding a connection rapidly improves with practice.

Use the connection as a passageway to the object. Have the energy flow through your hands, or as directed by your mind, in to the object. Getting the energy out of you and in to it may be an issue, but again, this is overcome by practice.

If you prefer, simultaneously raise and send the energy at once instead of storing it then sending it.

To recharge a natural item, don’t force energy in. Rather let it flow and allow the item to suck up energy as it wishes.

4 - Close the connection. Close or 'tie off’ the energetic flow so energy won’t leak out. Actively disconnect from the object.

Some objects do hold energy better than others. For practice, find items highly valued for their battery capacity like quartz. Some techniques, like wrapping items in a black cloth or keeping them in an iron box, are said to preserve energy and keep it from leaking out.

Basic Elements of Energy Work

Energy work is the ability of a person to control unseen energies. Almost all basic pagan/Wiccan/New Age/witchcraft exercises deal with energy work. Here is a short list of some of the things a young witch should learn.

Grounding. It’s extremely important. You may think it will be fun to carry around a lot of elemental energy - you will quickly change your mind. Grounding is the ability to get excess energy out and ground yourself back in reality. This is especially important if you want to work with dreams, spirits, or visions.

Centering goes hand-in-hand with grounding. As a magical practitioner, you do stuff that leaves your energetic body out of sorts. If you are working with real magic, there is also a chance your grasp on reality can be shaken. Centering is a focus on your physical body that gathers all your loose bits and reforms your energetic body back in to its natural shape. Combine it with grounding to get back to the real world.

Shielding is a basic energy work exercise that is also pretty danged important. Learn to shield yourself and how to place shields around other things, people, and locations. This is a vital element of protection.

Charging is the act of filling an object with energy. You can passively charge things by leaving them around natural elements, but you need to learn how to actively charge something as well.

Programing is the process of giving energy a ‘job’. Programing energy is the basis for all spellwork. When you dress a candle, you are filling it with energy and then programing that energy to do a job for you.
