Hello All!
I’ve been on the awakened path about 11 years & studied all things Hermetic, Esoteric, Theosophical, New Age & New Thought - Eastern philosophy (I love Sadguru) various sacred texts - Christianity & Gnosticism - & the pursuit of enlightenment during that time. Ive been interested in both low & high magick for most of that time & really became an “armchair” magician but was afraid to practice magick without some guidance. I waited many years to commit to this journey as an active, practicing magician as it was important i did it ethnically & safely as possible. I’m also a Neophyte Ceremonial Magician in training with a Hermetic Order. I wish to learn the practice of both low & high magick in order to spiritually ascend & pursue the Great Work - as well as learn to use magick to affect change within our mundane world. I believe in practicing my craft with the highest of ethics. I’m most interested in healing - transformation & blessing all I can with the love of God/Source - the Divine Masculine-& the Goddess - the Divine Feminine. We have many challenges as a family - its been many years of hell if I’m honest. But suffering can be one of the best teacher - it has served me well. My deepest wish is to find something to support & give hope to our very mentally ill son - give him something to live for & prevent him from suicide . But especially to fully face & overcome myself. I thank anyone for taking the time to read my post.

Thank you &
“Blessed Be to you All!!:heart:


Hello @Gingermynx

It’s lovely to meet you, I’m so glad you are here and I’m looking forward to getting to know you better.

If you have any questions just ask. Q&A - The Spells8 Forum There is also an Energy Exchange Circle that might be of interest.

With much love, light, and healing for your son :heart:


Welcome @Gingermynx I’m Siofra from Cape Cod & also a moderator here in the forum. I hope you don’t mind but I added a trigger warning & blurred possible triggering content so the others can choose whether they can read those parts. Also, you can certainly add your request to the Energy Exchange Circle :hugs: May 2022 for healing, positive, love, light, &/or energy from the other members of the coven for a period of time until you wish to be removed from the Energy Exchange.

I am a very intuitive empath & eclectic witch. I follow a path that leans more towards :triquetra: Celtic Paganism/Druidry. I am taking accredited courses to become a certified crystal healer & advanced practitioner. I am currently reading books regarding chakras because that is a part of crystal healing & I would like to understand them more before I start working with them on myself or other people (which would be like family & friends, I can’t imagine doing something I’m this passionate about for money. I’d rather help the people in my life not make them paying customers… I’m different :rofl:)

I actually have the book listed in the :open_book: Spells8 Book Club XVII (Apr 29 - May 27) & I will be entering my review either later tonight or tomorrow. I am now onto my 2nd book regarding the 7 main chakras plus hand chakras.

I also follow astrology :milky_way: , the moon :full_moon:, meditation :woman_in_lotus_position: , tarot, oracle cards, & runes, I work with the Morrigan :raven: & Brighid :fire:, both have Triple Goddess aspects to them of the :triskele: Celtic Pantheon.

What else, I am learning how to release & work with my energy. I have a focus on grounding/centering. (I have found that gardening or working in my yard with the soil releases energy that no longer serves me or negative energy or chaotic energy the best for me.)

I make my own incense when I can & use essential oils & carrier oils/anointing oilsf with candle magic, jar spells, releasing rituals, or just to diffuse throughout my home. I like to make simmer pots too & use Florida Water or Florida Water blends, so some kitchen & green witch aspects with the apothecary I have that is ever-growing.

I work with the elements in my own kind of way but they are there & recently found out that my methods are more of what would be defined as chaos magic… I kind of use written spells as guidelines & do my own thing based on my own feelings/intuition & intentions. I like to make up pouches & carry or wear crystals. (I mostly work with Earth, Fire, & Water. I’m kind of adding them in one at a time as I realize their importance)

I have made pouches for my daughter, now she makes her own & has her own crystal collection, herbs, candles :candle:, incense, cauldron… her first setup is all hand-me-downs from me. Even her 1st altar cloth was my first altar cloth. So now I obviously have to keep it & use it for special occasions. :hugs:

I seem to be in the rambling phase of the month, so I will end it here. I look forward to learning with you more throughout your time here! :infinite_roots:

It’s great having you here. You’re certainly not alone with having a mentally ill child. I have a 15 year old autistic son who is either depressed and anxious or outgoing and funny.
