The Secret of Powerful Magic

Author: Quill ofQuillsOccultSupply / Labels: ,

I won't drag this out only to divulge my answer at the very last moment (you're welcome).  The secret to powerful magic is a trusting heart.

In the very beginning, when we're taking our first steps into the world that we are not even yet ready to admit may be magic, we don't trust.  We seek, we explore, we question, and we second-guess everything.  Is magic real?  Is it just coincidence?  Am I just playing at make believe? Am I getting results despite all the colors and herbs and chanting?  Am I tapping some hidden realm, some sideline of existence only hinted about in legends?  Am I part of a new generation of mystics that will usher in the Age of Aquarius? 

It can take a long time and a lot of experience to leave this stage.  For me, it was months of study and spellcasting before I stopped saying all my results were coincidence.  It was much longer until I stopped feeling that way.  In the end, though, the reasons are unimportant.  If magic works for you, then it works.  Period.  And this, too, is part of trust.  What you do has worked before and it will work again.  Maybe this spell was used by you in the past, maybe by a friend, or maybe it's traditional and therefore used by countless people throughout an uncertain length of the past...Have faith in the spell itself.  Let go of the need to explain to yourself and others, the need to do and believe only that which is rational and comprehensible by the five senses.  No one is keeping score and it really doesn't matter even if they were.  Results trump reason.

So here is my advice:  the next time you sit down to cast, take a moment to unlock that secret box in your heart where you keep all your trust.  You may be a guarded person who only does this for parents, lifelong friends, and puppies, but do it now just for you.  Fling the doors open wide and let it all pour out.  Go into your work like a child--aware, eager, and trusting.

About Me

My photo

My name is Quill and I've been practicing witchcraft for the past 17 years. 10 of those years I've been reading tarot and teaching.  I own a shop on Etsy called Quill's Occult Supply (check it out at full of handmade ritual and decorative items, spell components, and wild picked herbs.

I love to work with my hands.  Magic is a tool to shape our lives, and I'm using magic to shape tools to shape magic.  Cosmic! 

I use a lot of my favorite things in my shop: herbs, candles, wood, fabric, paint, clay.  And I get to carve, burn, grind, mold, think, dream ... I'm in the perfect business!

I've written 3 manuscripts for publication (2 non-fiction and 1 fiction) and am an avid NaNo-er!  I and my husband run a local coven called Orbis Prosapia, and our children are growing up surrounded by magic, mythology, fairy tales, Earth worship, art, open discussion, music, and humor. 

In addition to working on Ex Penna about my experiences as a professional witch, I also write for Scenes from the Circle about being a coven leader.
