The Other Side of the Hedge: Hidden Knowledge

                             Occult

 It’s time to clarify words destroyed in the Western world again. 

If you have a desire to learn about The Craft then let’s learn about “Occult” together. This is written by a very Wize Witch.. Christopher  Drysdale.

    (STUDYING THE OCCULT) 

Training in magic has strong parallels with training in martial arts. Just as the martial arts strengthen the body, magical training promotes spiritual strength and health, increases overall confidence, and deepens self-awareness. Just as with martial arts, these benefits are not primary goals. Rather, they accrue as a side effect of training.

Friday Night

I’ve been ill for the last two weeks but woke today with hope thanks to a dear friend and her Reki healing. 

Since I’ve been away I want to apologize for just disappearing and thank you for your patience while I recover. Love you all my wonderful sisters and brothers.

Necromancy or Talking To The Dead

This is a fantastic article about communicating with the spirit of someone who has passed.

It simplifies and removes the fear and taboo from it. I hope you read this and give me your feedback and also as you’re spreading love, joy and well wishes, please remember to include your Ancestors too, they’ll appreciate it.

Defining Necromancy By: Sarah Ann Lawless

Necro just means death (necropolis, necrosis, necronomicon… you get it) and has two meanings: the first is a form of divination/mediumship/spiritwork involving the summoning of the dead in the form of spirits and communicating with them to gain knowledge and foreknowledge and the second is witchcraft and sorcery in general usually practiced specifically by a witch. Not really so scary, right? More like ancestor worship and witchcraft than all the horrible things you were thinking. As for reanimation of corpses, well you’ll need to read The Serpent and the Rainbow to learn about real zombies.

The second definition gives away that witchcraft and sorcery have some inherent association with death and with the history of witches being moon worshippers and gathering at night, it doesn’t surprise me. Witches work with spirits, spirits come from death. Think about it, we don’t just work with dead people; those herbs you used in your incense are dead parts of plants, and that skull on your altar is from a dead animal. Even those witch gods you invoke may just be the first ancestors or ancient ancestors who practiced as you do.

To be a necromancer one needs to accept death and not fear it. One also needs to have reverence for death and not be insensitive to it – a life, is a life, is a life after all – not matter how seemingly small.
