Creating an effective spell

An effective spell is only as effective as the intent behind it. Why is that? To answer this let us explore consciousness. What is it? What does it have to do with spellcasting or crafting? Consciousness is the state of awareness. It ties in nicely when you understand that consciousness is the collective mind of time and space. So therefore when you tap this connection spells become more effective. You see, when you take time for reaching consciousness then space time becomes linear. At this point you can reach through time and space and achieve any possibility.  Ipso facto your spells are have better results.

Keeping your coven’s energy clean

When you are forming a new coven one thing to remember is that its energy must remain clean. Most pagan/Wicca groups are loath to leave anyone out who voices a desire to be in. however, the flow of rites and rituals is very important. Negative or profane individuals can send the wrong intent into a proceeding. When the intent is changed a rite or ritual can be turn into a dark working bringing consequences on the whole coven. This form of behavior can be observed in social media groups. These individuals most often are either dark hearted, trolls or misguided about what they are watching. These types of people should be sorted out of any activities. However, for the most part pagans/wiccans/ want the world to know that they are inclusive. This is for all tense and purposes true. We should never write someone out due to uncontrollable circumstances. When it come to profane persons nevertheless we must be guarded. Removing them from groups and covens will keep energy clean and the intent on course.


When we think of potions, images of old warty women standing over boiling cauldrons come to mind. However, potions have been around for a long time and were made and have been made by wide variety of individuals with just as wide verity of ingredients. While in times past potions may have contained animal parts, it is difficult to tell how common this would have been among healers, herbalist, and wise women (Witches and wizards as they were called). This is due in part to the fact that they didn’t leave a lot of written information (most couldn’t write), most of their activities where in the form of accusations and charges from prosecutors. In modern day times (except for fringe practitioners) mostly herbs are use in potions. Today, we use words like preparations, decoctions, tinctures and fomentation. These name changes help to scrape off the stigma of medieval superstition and fear mongering from those who killed the knowledgeable practitioners for zealous and scrupulous reasons.

Many paths

Thanks for joining me!

Here at many paths blog, we have more of an Eclectic Wicca direction. We, however respect all paths and will try to appeal to every path. It should be known that we consider all none Christian paths to be pagan from a historic stance. While the word pagan has in past been used as a diatribe many peoples and paths now embrace the pagan badge. Therefore, the word pagan will be used for broad terminology for those of us on diverse paths and walks. We will strive to inform, educate, entertain, and perhaps evoke thought from our wonderful readers. Thank you for joining us as we walk the many paths ahead.
