Lucid dreaming is simply dreaming while aware. This allows you to take active part in your dream, to make decisions, create dream scenarios and even determine the direction of your dream. You are control of your actions in dream space, though control of other "characters" and objects in your dream may vary. Lucid dreaming is a valuable tool for connecting with our sub-conscious and a stepping stone to more advanced dream work.

A curse is negative energy that has become attached to you by one means or another. In many cases it may be the result of a hex placed upon you by another magic-user or even by a person with strong feelings but little magical experience. Sometimes our own attitudes curse us, or we may inherit curses from our families. Either way, there are steps we can take to diminish and break a curse and move on with our lives.
This is a very generic Circle casting ritual that can be adapted to just about any purpose.
So you have a spell you've found in a book or online. Maybe a friend gave it to you or you found it in your grandmother's grimoire or perhaps you wrote it yourself. There are many different types of spells out there and some of them are written in great detail while others are extremely vague. Can just saying these words three times really affect change? Maybe not. Whatever you've got, you can increase your chances of success by practicing basic magical skills and developing your own ritual style and casting your spells within that format.
Crystals, tools, amulets, talismans, and jewelry need to be cleansed when acquired and also periodically throughout ownership to remove any negative energy debris. It is especially recommended to cleanse items used for healing and in divination often.
A Book of Shadows is your personal journal of your magical journey. In it, you will write down any notes and insights you receive from other Witches, from the Universe, from your dreams, from books and websites and any other source you find them. You will write down your spells before you cast them and you will make notes about the casting and about your results. You will keep any tables of correspondences, recipes, sketches of magical plants, symbols and just about anything that comes to you that relates in any way to your magical practice.
It is wise for all magical practitioners of any tradition to have a Book Of Shadows as it provides an invaluable resource you will invariably return to time and again when your memory fails, not to mention the incredibly deep insight your periodic review of your Book of Shadows and provide into your own spiritual evolution.
Gem elixirs are special waters that are attuned with a gemstone's specific vibrations so that the properties of a stone can then be taken internally and applied to the body. Use of gem elixirs has been recorded in several ancient civilizations as a way of healing the mind, body, and soul.
Entering a trance state is a very basic magickal technique that all magick-users should master. It is the first step toward astral projection or mediumship and many divination methods simply do not work if a trance state isn't first acquired. Entering a trance may seem difficult and even scary to some people the first time, but it's very natural. Humans are hard wired for trance. Western culture is the only culture that rejects trance as a valid form of spiritual expression. This may be why so many people seek unhealthy ecstatic experiences and become addicted to drugs, alcohol, sex and pornography and thrill seeking. All of these fulfill similar needs as trance as all produce ecstatic states, but they may have harmful affects on the body or on the person's life and relationships.

Curses and psychic attack are negative energy directed at us from another person. This person may be a skilled magickal practitioner who has raised energy against you in a planned attack or it may simply be a person who has very negative strong feelings toward you that have "rubbed off" and "stuck" to you. While this is a scary prospect, the truth is that it is very easy to prevent this energy from staying with you for any length of time.
