Top Ward Mistakes I

These are some common reasons why wards, even powerful ones, fail at times. I have noticed these over the years, through my mistakes and others. 

Not enough layers: Wards are made of pure energy, and usually aren’t sentient- meaning they aren’t smart and usually don’t adjust to different attackers. Without the ability to adjust, attackers can get by with ease. Having multiple layers of wards helps prevent this. While layers will vary of course based on your needs, I always recommend three basic layers for a ward, going outwards to the inside: 1) non-detection, 2) offensive ward, 3) defensive ward. The reason for these particular layers being: an attacker can’t attack if it can’t find you. If they do find you, they are then dissuaded by a ward that attacks them. They will have to go through the ward that hurts them to even get to the ward that defends you, thus weakening them and making it harder to get through that final line of defense at the same time.

Too rigid: What shatters more easily when hit- a plastic case, or a rubber ball? The plastic case- why? Because it is super rigid and unable to bend; thus, just one concentrated hit could break through it with ease. This applies to wards as well- you don’t want your wards to be unable to bend- else they shatter under a concentrated hit. Being flexible doesn’t make a ward weaker- you can still have a super tough and thick ward that bends!

Not selective or specific enough: “Keep out malicious entities.” Okay, well what do you mean by malicious? Being as specific as possible is best when it comes to protections. Instead of just saying “malicious” how about- “those that would bring me nightmares”, “those that would harm me”. This also ties into the next point-

…From whose point of view?: Okay, you did it, you made your ward. “Keep out anything with malicious intent.” But the key is…who judges the malicious intent? A nasty entity could easily go, “this is good for me!” and bypass the ward. Additionally, an abusive entity who believes, from their point of view, that what they are doing is “helping” you, and thus not malicious, could easily bypass an unspecific ward. It is best to say something along the lines of, “Things I deem as a malicious intention.” That way, it is based on YOUR judgement alone, what YOU deem as bad, and thus it cannot be interpreted any other way by trickster entities.

A circular wall, or a sphere?: You made your ward- it’s selective, not super rigid, and you made sure the terms were from your point of view. And yet- it’s still easily bypassed! Bad Entities appear in your room, seemingly untouched by the wards. What could’ve happened? Well- this ability called “teleportation” exists. If your innermost ward is a circular wall- not filled in- then an entity could easily bypass your wards just by teleporting directly to you or directly into your space! To protect against this, you want your innermost ward to be like a sphere- filled in on the inside with protective energies as well. Thus, the constraints applying to the outer layers of your wards (no malicious intent from my point of view) are applied to your actual space as well- thus nullifying the teleporting ability, or dealing damage to any entities that manage to teleport inside anyways.

Handwriting Magic: Introduction

As your handwriting reflects your entire personality and the way you think, changing your handwriting can help you to develop yourself in more desirable ways. Handwriting can be used in all sorts of magic, as writing is something we already do on a nearly daily basis.

Handwriting General Associations:

  • Shape: determines general traits (Round = nicer/softer, sharp = sharper/meaner, etc)
  • Neatness: only determines communication skill to an extent, and/or organizational skills
  • Speed: only determines speed of the person (in general)
  • Signatures: Your public face; how you present yourself to the really broad public (like acquaintances, acquaintances of acquaintances)
  • Left: Introverted/past-associated
  • None: Balanced/Present-day 
  • Right: Extroverted/Future associated
  • Large = Call to attention
  • Small = avoid attention/notice

Size: How much attention you enjoy calling to that specific aspect. 

  • Of Handwriting: How much attention you enjoy calling to yourself in general.  Does NOT dictate personal expression- you can still be extroverted but not personally express yourself (which would manifest as large writing, but with a left slant).
  • Of Certain Letters: How much you want that specific aspect of yourself (that the letter represents) to gain notice. 

Zones: Represent different portions of your thinking and emotions. 

  • Upper Zone: Superconcsious/higher thinking/intellectual-ness,
  • Middle Zone: conscious; the self; regular daily thoughts
  • Lower zone: sexuality, subconscious

Slant: Dictates personal expression; expression of very personal emotions

  • Left: low personal expression
  • None: Balanced personal expression
  • Right: High personal expression

Spacing:

  • Between Letters: “Space” in personal expression; how closely you guard your personal emotions
  • Between Words: Spacing in large social situations; short spacing may be very outgoing and/or crowdy/intrusive, large spacing denotes introvertedness/someone who may not like crowds

How to Apply:

  • Writing spells: write your intention down a certain number of times (can be done for many days, as a daily ritual thing), changing your handwriting to fit the intention. 
  • If making sigils out of words, change the letters for whatever associations to add a bit more oomph. 
  • Actively try to change things in your handwriting that reflect parts of yourself you don’t like. 
  • Edit your handwriting while recording things in a physical grimoire to weave spellwork into the words and book itself. 

Note: The above is my information that I have gathered over the years.

Top Ward Mistakes II

These are some common reasons why wards, even powerful ones, fail at times. I have noticed these over the years, through my mistakes and others.

…The Ceiling. Did you remember to ward your ceiling? It doesn’t matter how powerful the walls are if an entity can just jump over it.

…The Floor. Also doesn’t matter how strong the walls are if the entity can just dig under it.

A Circle Doesn’t Fit Into A Square: Does the shape of the ward match the room you are in? While a circle is the most stable when standalone, not clinging to anything else, it’s still weaker than something tied to something physical- such as the walls, floors, and ceilings of your space. Thus, even the best spherical ward will still fade out much quicker than something tied to the physical structure of your house. Additionally, having a circle in your (most likely) square-ish shaped room will leave certain corners without protection; you want the intruder to be kept out of your house in the first place, not just certain parts of it.

The Corners, Edges, Etc: Building on the previous point, even when the ward is tied to the physical structure of the house, many people don’t pay attention to the corners or edges where the ward bends- this is often where the ward is usually weakest. You want to double check that the ward is solid on those portions and maybe even visualize something tougher holding it together there,  as the bending usually makes it more fragile near those certain points.

Well I can finally knock mermaid bath off my Lush bucket list. 😍 it’s so pretty and I feel so soft. agreatgreenwizard also picked up a little something from our favorite smoke shop today. 😏happy Stoney Sunday guys! 💚

Worksheet to make In-Depth Correspondences

I use this worksheet for any plant that I actively work with, to dish out as much detail as possible so I can maximize the effectiveness of the spell and the plant’s capabilities. 

Plant: 

Scientific Name: 

General Correspondences: (General, one word things like “Banishing, Money, etc” would go here.) 

How it works for:

  • Protection:
  • Opportunities/Unblockers:
  • Money/Wealth: 
  • Relationships: 
  • Banishing: 
  • Binding: 
  • Cursing: 

Differences as: 

  • A tea: (Put N/A if not edible). 
  • A potion: 
  • An oil:
  • Dried:
  • Fresh: 

How it works with certain elements: 

  • Fire (burning, with candles, etc):
  • Water (tea, potions, etc): 
  • Earth (burying, jars with dirt, etc): 
  • Air (letting the wind blow the herbs away, etc): 
  • Light Energy (General): 
  • Moon Energy:
  • Sun Energy: 

Works well together with: 

  • (Plant name, why/how, in what spell type, etc)
  • Example: Rosemary. Why: because they are of similar element, and of the same plant genus. Works best together in Protection spells by making protections “smarter”-able to sense negativity better. 

Does not work well together with: 

  • etc

Misc: 

I usually use this area to put any information regarding the plant’s spirit, or differences between individual plants-maybe you have one pot of basil that always functions well in wealth spells, but you’ve never had results from the other basil plant.
