Magic-The creative and destructive forces of the universe

Magic is a powerful force.  This is the force that allows witches and other magical traditions and practices to be able to cause the great changes they do in the world.  This is a force that is neutral in nature.  This is a force that is used to both create and to destroy.  It is the same force used to heal and to bless that is used to harm and to curse.

By itself magic has little to no direction.  Magic as a force will simply work to cause changes in the lives of the world.  That is what magic is.  Magic is the subtle forces that effect changes.  These are the forces caused by thoughts and actions as well as emotions.  The energy which makes up magic is the very energy of life which is why thoughts and emotions are key to the way magic works and acts.

There are many different names for people who practice magical arts.  Witches are one.  Shamans practice a form of magic as do many other tribal Wisemen and women.  One thing that unites magic practitioners is some form of mental discipline and training.  This training is what allows them to connect to the creative forces of the universe however they envision them.

It was mentioned above that thoughts and emotions are key to manifesting and making magic work.  It was also mentioned that those who practice magic are often trained with some form of mental discipline.  These two statements illustrate the reason why magic is both creative and destructive.  Human thoughts and emotions are creative and destructive,  This is also why with out direction and manipulation magic is simply a neutral force that creates changes in life.

When a person works a spell it is the intent behind the spell that gives form and direction to magic.  Intent is made up of thought and emotions.   The actions performed during spells and magical ritual are items used to focus and intensify concentration on desires- the intent of the spell.   The desire or intent has an emotional basis.  The stronger the emotion the more powerful the spell or ritual action will be,

The energy raised in the spell has direction.  It has purpose.  In order to allow the spell to work the magic will destroy some options and possibilities and create another.  This is why magic as a tool and as a practice is always creating and destroying.  It is a force that causes changes.   This is the force of the cosmos.

For something to be created something else must be destroyed.  This is a truth of nature.  This is a truth of the cosmos.  New planets and stars are created out of the debris of older planets and stars.  This is also the true meaning of what they mean when they say that matter can never be created or destroyed-merely changes form.

Magic is part of the universe.  It is the force which allows things to be created.  It is creation and destruction.  It is that which allows the universe to continue in expansion.

Pagan Blog Project: C is for Crafting Protection Salt

Witchcraft is a craft and a practice.  As a witch I spend a lot of time crafting different incenses for rituals and for spells.  I also spend time crafting spells and rituals.  There are many different types of items that can be crafted and built.  Today we are going to talk about an item I call protection salt.

Protection salt is in some ways related to Black Salt.  The idea behind protection salt is that it will protect your house and home as well as defend your home.  Protection salt works both to keep spirits and negative forces away but it also works to cause harm to those spirits and forces that would wish you harm.

Protection salt is really easy to craft and it is very effective.  There are very few items used in the recipe and it takes little to no time to craft the items yourself.  It takes little to no time and is one of the most effective items I have crafted in recent history.

Materials:

Blender/grinder

Bottle or container

Sea salt 9 table spoons

Dragons blood 3 table spoons

Nettle leaf 3 table spoons

White sage 3 table spoons

Dragon Fire protection tincture 1 1/2 table spoons

Wand or athame to stir

Process:

Measure out the sea salt.  Put the sea salt in the grinder

Measure out the Nettle leaf.  Add it to the grinder.  Mix with your wand or athame

Add the white sage and mix with your wand or athame.

Add the last dry herb (the dragons blood) and mix with the wand or the athame.

Cover the grinder/blender and mix them into a fine powder.

Stir the mixture with your wand or athame.

Call upon the arch angel Michel and the dragons of protection to fill the salt with their power.

Direct Michel power and the dragons power into the salt mixture.  Blend with your athame or wand.

Finally add in the Dragons Fire tincture.  Feel even more Dragon energy and sacred protection energy filling the blender.

Once more blend the mixture.

As it blends focus on protection and defense of your home, office, or even car.  See the mixture radiating both protective and defensive energy.

Bottle the mixture in a bottle or container and label it.

Use:

Sprinkle the mixture on all the windowsills and under all the doors in your home.  Sprinkle the mixture on the floors in every room, on your porch, on your steps, and in your drive way.  This seals the protection around the building and within the building.

The tinctures addition to the mixture allows the salt to stick better to the windowsills, doors and steps.
