Here's to you and here's to me
I pray that friends we'll always be,
But if by chance we disagree,
The heck with you and here's to me!
| DIFFERENT TYPES OF MAGICK
There are many different types of Magick and I will list some of them below, but the best type of Magick is whatever works best for you, whatever you feel comfortable with.
Color has the ability to completely change our
moods and emotions. This has been proven and color has been used in schools and doctors offices because it has been shown that people work, learn, and even feel better in rooms of specific colors. Yellow tends to be a cheerful color.
When using Color Magick, you must first choose a color that is representative of your goal, such as pink for love or blue for healing. Then you can use color visualization to realize your wishes. Color visualization is a good form to use in Color Magick, especially in healing, but you can also use candle magick or something similar.
Elemental Magick is done with the use
of the elements of Fire, Water, Air
and Earth and it is my personal favorite, mainly because
it is what I am good at. Each element has its
own aspects and is used in almost all forms of Magick
in one way or another. If you study the section on elemental meditation, you will see the form of magick that I enjoy the most.
Symbolic Magick uses symbols to represent your goals. Numbers, photographs, the tarot, Runes, Oghams, Numerology and even candles are used in this type of magick. Anything that can be used to represent what you are doing is okay to use. Making your own symbols and making it to represent
what you desire is always a powerful inducement in magick,
because it is a part of you.
Talismans and Amulets
These are magickally "charged" items and are representational of whatever magick is being done. Talismans and Amulets are usually worn
or carried on the person for protection, love, luck, or for whatever purpose is necessary. This is also a type of symbolic magick. There are many
things that can be utilized for this purpose. Many use pendants, rings, an item carried inside a pouch or "mojo",etc, to make an amulet or talisman.
Herbs can be used medicinally or magickally, but there is a difference. Medicinally, they can be ingested to aid in healing but not all are used this way. Some herbs are poisonous so take care when using them. Certain herbs can be used but only in a magickal process. This means that they can be used as a talisman or an amulet, in a pouch or dream pillow for
for various reasons. You can burn them, use them in a candle, popourri, bath water, etc but you may NOT ingest them. There are hundreds of herbs readily available right at your grocers or health food stores and each one has its own magickal or medicinal value. Be sure to use extreme care and know what you are doing when using herbs.
One of the oldest as well as easiest forms of magick is Candle Magick . You can burn a candle while meditating to ensure your goal. This is just one of the things that candles are used for. They are present at many rituals and many are used as aromatherapy as well. Check the Grimoire for a spell using Candle magick.
Knot Magick is also referred to as
Cord Magick or Binding Magick. With this kind of magick, you use a rope, cord, string, piece of yarn, ribbon etc to signify the desire. By tying knots in the cord, you declare your desires. You may also tie things into each knot if you need to represent something else. I have seen people tie feathers, hair, pieces of paper, etc into each knot they tie. There is a spell in the Grimoire that uses Cord Magick, which is the same thing.
Crystal or Gem Stone Magick
With Crystal Magick, each stone or gem has its
own magickal properties. A stone can be used to enhance a spell
or used on its own. It can be worn, carried, used as an amulet, charm etc.
Poppet or Representational Magick is similar to "voodoo". It utilizes the figure of the individual that you are working the spell for. This helps in visualizing the need or desire and also the end result. Visualization is an important aspect
of magick, one of the most important, in fact. Poppets can be
made from almost anything and are sold in many occult shops but the best ones are the ones that you fashion yourself. All you need is bits of cloth and thread or clay and sticks etc or whatever you can make a small figurine out of. Attaching bits of hair, nail clippings, an article of clothing, a personal item, a photograph or even a magazine photo personalizes it for the person and for yourself as well. It can work extremely well for visualization. This is what is called your psychic link if you recall your lessons.
