Witchcraft- Myrtlelyn’s Style Part #2

Most Witches do not believe, nor do we worship a Devil, We do not work with Low-Spirits, Earth Bound Spirits or any Negative Force. Nothing Good will come from it. Low or Dark Entities always want something in return for their help.

Be aware of Greed, as it can and will eventually backfire. It will come back to bite you when you least expect it. This does not mean we can not cast for ourselves, it just means do not be Greedy about what you ask for.

Life is all about Lessons to be learned , so we can grow and evolve as Spiritual Beings.
If we try to skip the lessons we need , our next reincarnation will just bring them along.
We can not skip our Spiritual lessons. JUst as unfinished business with some people in this Lifetime may carry through to your next incarnation. Things have to be set right, finished. If we really do not like someone and we do not get to make amends, you can be sure that person will be somebody in the next life.

Using Witchcraft for to draw attention to yourself is a big NO ,NO. If we are not sincere, our Spells will backfire, or they will not work.

Lack of Sincerity does not produce good strong Magick. If there is no true belief in the Spell–it will not work. Spells are not to be played with. They are actually quite serious business.

We do not recruit, but we do help those who have questions. Those who belong on this path will know it, they will be very interested in it. They will be drawn to like-minded people, Now if you are of age no worries, if you are underage that is another matter. You will need to feel out your Parents. If they don’t freak, you can tell them. They will need to accept it in order for you to be out in the open.

Some parents or guardians are open-minded and will not have issues with your newly chosen path. Others will never accept it. Don’t push it, just let it roll off your back.

Meditation is the #1 most important exercise I can think of.
This helps to strengthen your connection to the Goddess, the God and to Spiritual Guides.
Without their help we won’t see the desired results we are looking for.
We are not strong enough on our own. So, don’t ever think when your Magick works it was all because of you. You had help.

A regular Meditation Schedule should be planned. The better your Meditations ,the quicker you will get to Alpha the stronger you become. Alpha Level is where you need to be for any Magickal, Spiritual or Psychic work.

In the beginning, I suggest guided Meditation Cd’s or from You tube. This will help you tremendously in your practice.

You have to have good visualization skills. To make Spell work, it takes a few things and Visualization is high on the list-right along with Protection.

As a #Witch I feel a strong connection to Nature. You need to get into nature and make yourself one with it. Hear the trees, the birds, the running water or the Ocean,
animals , all speak to you.

There is nothing nicer than walking along a beach, or in a forest.Smell the fresh air, Sea Mist, or the smell of Pine. This is a very easy , natural way to connect with the Goddess, God and Spirit Guides.

As your connection strengthens, you will start to feel small changes beginning.

You will be calmer, have more energy and a much more positive outlook on life.
You will really start to feel good about yourself.

The Book of Shadows is a personal journal on all my Ritual work,Layouts ,Spells, Prayers, Incantations Etc.
This is an important book. If you do not record what you do, including your recipes~
that spell is lost, as you will never be able to re-produce it again. Just too much to remember.

You will personalize your Craft. It will take on your essence. Your likes.
This will start with your Altar, Clothing and Jewelry. It will be subdued if you are shy and bold if you are an extrovert.
This is what makes us each individual

calmer, have more energy and a much more positive outlook on life.
You will really start to feel good about yourself.

A bit of Nature added to your decor helps you to always be able to connect to Nature.
Be creative. Go with your gut instincts. Listen to your inner self. This is how you work alongside
your Guides and the Goddess / God.

When it comes to choosing your Goddess and God as your Main Deity,No-one can do this for you.
You will feel drawn to the ones that are right for you.
