I’m part of a large and loving Craft family, and often we request work from one another. A couple of days ago a call for help went out, requesting a water-based healing.
This posed a challenge for me, since in the past I haven’t framed my work this way. But every challenge bears a gift, and this one was no exception.
After some thought, this is what I crafted: I cleansed and consecrated the water in my outdoor fountain. Then I “painted” the words of the spell with water on the urn, and turned the fountain on. Now, the water washes over my intent — the watery equivalent of burning a candle.
To DL, know that you are loved, and we are working for your Dear One.
We live in an age of instant intellectual gratification. Our every itch scratched, our every curiosity satisfied, in great part through the wonders of the internet.
But this cranial scratching post has a downside. It’s so easy to get information that we’ve become complacent. We equate being able to lay our hands on information with the acquisition of knowledge.
I’d be delighted to be proven wrong. So the next time you read a new chant or spell or method, don’t just make a copy and file it away for some future, perhaps never-to-happen use. Instead be daring — use it straight away.
Taking up magical information is an act of intention. Using that information makes it truly your own. Writes it into the core of you through the firing of neurons and the memory of muscles. Blood and bone. And there’s not much witchier than that.
