That is a great idea. I will meditate on how best to implement it. Please be patient with me, I have a huge list of things to do on the site.

It would be great to see a page dedicated to pop culture / modern witchcraft alongside some of the more historical practices!

Many believe that we are picking up various energies and even entities all the time as we go about our day and interact with different people and different environments. Usually, they are harmless and our energetic field normalizes through basic, everyday self-care practices of bathing, eating a good diet, getting enough rest and doing things we enjoy. Sometimes this isn't enough and you may need to do some sort of ritual cleansing, like taking a ritual bath, smoke cleansing or various other methods found in specific traditions. Many engage in these regularly as part of their self care in order to maintain aural hygiene. If these methods are not enough, you may need to consult your clergy or spiritual practitioner for more intensive methods.

Some signs that may indicate a problem include a general sense that things are off, feeling like you're not yourself, thoughts and urges that are outside your normal character, obsessing over a person, place or object, feeling like you're being watched, catching a glimpse out of the corner of your eye, and nightmares. These signs will occur a lot if there's a problem, not just once in a while. Everyone experiences these sometimes and it doesn't necessarily mean it's a problem.

You should also note that these can also be signs of mental illness and I highly encourage anyone seeking spiritual treatment to also seek psychological treatment because even if your problem is spiritual in nature and not psychological, people experiencing any sort of chronic symptoms whether they be physical or spiritual, are at very high risk for developing psychological issues too.

in discussion Hidden / Per page discussions » Quartz

Not that I am aware, beyond the idea that hawthorn is a fairy tree and people like to leave offerings to fairies and crystals are popular fairy offerings. If you come up with something more concrete, please do let us know!

Red quartz is quartz and iron. Iron is very active and aggressive and quartz is an energy conduit, so I would say your experience with it is about what one would expect. It is very useful for healing and other situations where a lot of energy is required, but I don't expect it would be helpful for meditation.

I can sense energy from it even when I'm not meditating with it. When I do, I quit shortly, because somthing about the copious ammounts of energy is unsettling. What does red quartz do?

Thank you, I'll do my best to explain. I very much appreciate your help.

If you associate yourself with a color, then, generally, you are either aligned, personality-wise, with the energies of that color or that you value those qualities. Or you just like the color. Not everything is mystical. Gold and silver are there. Aqua is blue-green.

Perhaps it's not a spell, hex, or any witchcraft related thing. Some group of 15 year olds might have thought that it was funny to burn some plantain, and stick it up your AC. I would cast a protection spell on your home, and research ways to get rid of the smell that smells so smelly.

Does your favorite color have to do with anything? Does your personality reflect a color? What if your favorite color isn't on the list? I know the sun corospnds with gold, but glod isn't on this list. Nor is aqua or silver. Sorry for all the questions, I'm new.

Yeah! Agreed!

No. All you can do is explain what it really means and hope for the best and when you move out you do your thing. She'll either get used to it or not.

White sage is used by many Native Americans to prepare for ceremony, but cleansing by means of smoke is common throughout many cultures. If you'ren not performing a Native American ceremony, then white sage isn't necessary at all. Many types of herbs can be used for smoke cleansing, including garden sage, thyme, cedar, pine, frankincense. I wouldn't use Russian sage.

Personally, I only use what I harvest myself or is given to me as a gift.

I dont really know enough about curses, but if I were you, I would ask my dad about it first, then do a few personal protection spells on him and free is bathroom of all negative energy. Tell your dad to wear a black crystal, and confront your mom about it.

I too became interested in witchcraft at a young age. Fairly recently too! I am thirteen, and my family is very religious, so it would mortify my mom if she found out about my secret.

First you must gradually become "hipster." This will hide the meditation, herbs, and burning candles and plants. This is a slow process. educate yourself about global warming, and what's good for the environment, that way, it doesn't seem too fishy. Plus it will help later when you know more about plants, and mother nature, as well as the elements will see your good deeds.

Second, do spells and stuff at night, in a secluded area. Have an excuse just in case she does catch you. I personally would cast an open-mindedness spell on her. Cast circles MENTALLY!

Third, come up with crafty ways to hide your supplies. Hide your alter in your closet, disguised as an ordinary looking shelf. Hide your book of shadows and other books under your mattress, with different covers slid over the front. Don't be scared to get crafty, risky, or rebellious. Get a friend to help if you trust them enough.

Remember that your life, is your life. Nobody can tell you how to live, because you are the one making the decision and taking the consequence. Not them. Tell your parent(s) this if it comes to it.

Being a witch is very personal, and this is probably unique to you. White often means pure, and yellow often means friendly, happy, or cowardice. But again, it's a very personal journey, and yellow means whatever you associate it with. I, personally, never saw anything while meditating, just random colors, and whatever I visualized. I would look into meditating phenomenons more if I were you. Good luck!
