The Purpose of this Article

Practical Black Magic

The purpose of this article is to discuss aspects of black magic as practiced by everyday witches and show how these methods are being used by the media to influence and enthrall the television-watching population.

Methods of Black Magic

In practical black magic, a succession of spells is often used against an enemy to weaken, prepare and “soften” him or her for a final purpose, for example, to obtain obedience or to destroy. In such an instance, the first spell forms a foundation for the second and the third attacks, and so on, against an enemy to slowly weaken or poison that person at a distance, destroy every aspect of their lives and eventually drive them out of their minds or cause their deaths due to accident or some self-destructive act.

Highly effective black magic often has a psychological component, as well. The more you know about your enemy (the person’s location, personal details, psychological make-up, associates, etc.), the better you can tailor your efforts toward effecting his or her subjugation (if that’s the goal) or destruction.

 Black Magic and Secrecy

Practical Black Magic: How to Curse and Hex Your Enemies by Sophia diGregorio

Black magic spells and methods therof are not discussed openly for a number of reasons. A major reason is that many people find it offensive. Of course, this attitude is one that only further serves to render a potential target more susceptible. Many people scoff at the idea of black magic or believe that if they deny the existence of it, they cannot be affected by it. This is not true, however, black magicians typically do not discourage those who do not believe in witchcraft because it creates a position of strength for themselves.

But, the other reason it is not discussed is that revealing too much about it, especially a particular operation, can weaken or even nullify its effect. If people know about it, they are able to do something about it. And, this is why I’m discussing methods of black magic here in relation to that which is currently being practiced by elements within government and the media. If people are aware of the techniques that are used, they have the ability to recognize and resist them. The purpose of this discussion is so that readers can recognize that black magic is being used on them very directly, especially if they have an object of influence, especially a television, in their homes.

Powerful witches and black magicians have long had a place in the warfare of nations. Dion Fortune, Aleister Crowley and Sybil Leek are all examples of witches who worked with some aspect of the government. Usually, this is covert and the general public only finds out about it decades later, if ever.

PsyOps

One of the most talented and public figures to apply the esoteric science of witchcraft to government warfare operations was Lt. Col. Michael Aquino. He was the father of American PsyOps or Psychological Operations and the founder of the the Temple of Set.

Aquino’s writings on black magic and psychological warfare are very impressive because he puts across to the uninitiated the basic aspects of black magic technique, which is to place an enemy into a suggestible state by whatever means, including the appearance of a friendly and familiar face on the television screen. By this means other methods of black magic can be implemented, including psychological trauma, emotional trauma and confusion. This is means of weakening an enemy and obtaining compliance, which is equivalent to the domination and confusion spells used in practical, everyday witchcraft.

 Television and the Perils of Accepting Gifts from Black Magicians

In practical black magic, we place an object of influence in the home of our enemy. Sometimes it is placed covertly or it is given to the person as a gift. Once this object is inside the person’s home, we project energy (waves, much like a broadcast signal) into this object, thus creating an influence on the person and everyone in their home. Never accept a gift from a black magician because they may use it to influence you.

Remember the government “gift” of those high definition television broadcast boxes a few years ago? They wanted Americans to have access to television broadcasts badly enough to give two vouchers to every citizen! These boxes broadcast very vivid images using a different frequency bandwidth than the old analog did. Furthermore, the box itself emanates dangerously high levels of electromagnetic frequencies that cause physical weakness, which you can feel if you are sensitive to such things. (It feels like a strong field of static electricity and it can be headache-inducing to some people.)

Television and PsyOps
Practical Black Magic: How to Hex and Curse Your Enemies by Sophia diGregorio

Practical Black Magic: How to Hex and Curse Your Enemies by Sophia diGregorio

While broadcasts can be used to psychologically weaken targets in other ways (for example, the relay of false information to an enemy to cause them to take certain actions according to the black magician’s will), they can, also, be used to induce emotionally traumatized states and deepen the suggestibility level further. (In hypnosis, this is simply called “deepening.”) It is done on a mass scale by means of these traumatic events being broadcast (ie. Sandy Hook “Massacre,” 9/11 and other “breaking news”), repeatedly over the television sets to highly emotional and receptive targets who are already in a lower-brainwave state and, therefore, highly suggestible.

The television, by means of its flicker rate, causes hypnotic induction to occur in a matter of a few minutes. Then, because of its ability to broadcast very realistic images combined with this brain wave-lowering flicker rate, is the perfect medium for broadcasting telepathic suggestions to the subconscious mind’s of millions of people at a time. The subconscious mind has no power of reasoning or analysis and willingly accepts whatever suggestions, images or other ideas it is given without question.

The use of trauma to induce compliance in PsyOps is an other reason for mass casualty events being broadcast in a highly emotional way on the television. The black magicians on the television will “suggest” to the viewers what to feel and think. Once the trauma has sufficiently taken hold, the magician assumes the target is now “soft” for these further telepathic suggestions. The black magician (anchor or television journalist, in this case) will say, “There is fear all across America,” “Americans are shocked!” “Americans are in grief over this event,” “Americans demand tougher security measures,” “Americans are demanding more gun control,” etc. This is the second layering of a black magic spell by means of telepathic suggestion. The people under hypnotic induction receive these images at a subconscious level and accept them as their own.

If you don’t watch television or keep abreast of popular culture, you may have noticed that people who do are difficult to have a discussion with about real world events because their minds have been heavily programmed by the sounds and images they have received in a semi-conscious, highly suggestible state. The television has been broadcasting an unreal version of life, especially Americans life, to American and people around the world for decades. The people subjected to it are literally under a spell and seem to live as if they are in a different version of reality because of the images and messages that have been broadcast to their subconscious minds while in a highly suggestible state.

How to Break the Spell

Anytime you suspect you are under the influence of black magic, the first thing to do is to get rid of the object of influence in your home, by means of which the black magician is transmitting his or her influence. In the case of mass media PsyOps, this is your television and to a lesser extent other forms of mainstream media communications like certain radio broadcasts and newspapers.

The television itself is not an object of witchcraft, but the signals that are being transmitted into your home by means of it are. So, you don’t have to give away or destroy your television to destroy this influence, simply cut the broadcast – cancel your subscription or get rid of your “box.”

The next step to break the spell is through knowledge or “illumination.” Learn more about the methods used by black magicians in the media.

Witchcraft and the knowledge of the esoteric science of witchcraft is power. It is neither good nor evil anymore than the electricity coming into your house is good or evil. The good or evil comes from the way it is used by the witch. So, don’t be afraid of learning more about the occult and try to get your information from occult sources and not outsiders.

There are many books on the the subject of occultists with nefarious intentions within government authored by people who see all occult knowledge and illumination as evil. These people are either wittingly or unwittingly aiding and abetting the media and government black magicians by means of their disinformation. So, when you do your research (on any subject), always try to go to the most original sources of information you can find so you can better understand what these people are actually doing.

Types of Clairvoyance and How This Ability May Be Applied

Clairvoyance is a type of mediumship and psychic ability, which involves an extension of the normal range of visual perception. (For a list of other types of mediumship, please see the article, “Types of Psychic Mediums and How to Develop Your Mediumship Abilities.”

Clairvoyance is a generic term, employed to express various degrees and modes of visual perception, whereby a person is able to know facts and obtain certain knowledge by means other than the ordinary five sense ability range.

Clairvoyance manifests itself differently from person to person and in varying degrees of ability and wide range of experience. The character, quality and manifestation of clairvoyance depends upon a peculiar condition of the psychic’s nerves and brain.

Horla-Apparition

{pd}

An example of the range of ways in which clairvoyance can manifest can be illustrated by the psychometrist who in touching certain objects or being present in certain places can cause a variety of experiences. For example, he or she may receive visions of the past or of the future, which may be more or less clear. These visions may come in brief flashes, they may appear photographic and depict an instant in time or they may seem to unreel a series of past events in succession.

As another example, in experiments involving crystal ball gazing, people’s abilities may be characterized by flashes, sparks, clouds of different colors, symbols or the vision may be partly or entirely clear and lucid.

People with the ability to clairvoyantly detect the presence of spirits may experience this perception in a variety of different ways, sometimes transparent or shadowy and others very distinct and apparently physical. The experience of clairvoyance may or many not be accompanied by clairaudience or clairsentience, which means the psychic may not only see the spirits, but hear and feel them.

No two persons’ clairvoyance is precisely alike, moreover, each one has a personal idiosyncrasy that invariably determines his or her specialty, and, whatever that specialty may chance to be, should be encouraged, for in that he or she will excel and in no other.

Ways clairvoyance may be applied:

  • To see the past, present and future
  • Finding lost property and people
  • Mind reading
  • Spiritual counseling
  • Spirit detection
  • Spirit communication
  • Medical diagnosis, prescription of remedies and other treatments
  • Exorcism, to control spirits
  • Scientific exploration, invention and innovation
  • Exploration of this world and others
  • The development of art, music and literature

While certain applications of clairvoyant abilities are more familiar to us from popular culture, such as the detection of spirits, exorcism, the ability to know events in the lives of the people around us, to know their character and to see events that are likely to occur., there are other applications that are less known.

Less often considered is the the medical application of clairvoyance to determine the nature and cause of disease and to prescribe remedies or aid in the application of treatments. Through clairvoyance we can attain a clearer understanding of the natural world through the exploration of science. This exploration leads us to new inventions and innovations. By means of inspiration, clairvoyance helps writers, artists and composers to reach beyond their own natural abilities.

If you are interested in developing your own clairvoyance, choose a method of application that interests and steadily pursue its perfection. Carefully consider your own interests, your needs and desires, to determine exactly what kind of clairvoyant you want to become, then bend all your energies toward this end.

Green Man Nature Spirit Symbolism in George Romero’s Movie “Season of the Witch or Jack’s Wife”

Posted in Black Magic, Clairvoyance, ESP, neo-paganism, occult, spell books, spell casting, tarot, Traditional Witchcraft, Wicca with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 17, 2013 by littleredridinghood

Young_Pan_by_L._Bakst

Young Pan by L. Bakst {pd}

(I am a huge fan of this movie and this is my third review and analysis of it at this blog. The first one is entitled, “Traditional Witch’s Review of the 1973 George Romero Movie, “Season of the Witch,” aka. “Hungry Wives” and “Jack’s Wife” and the second one is entitled, “Review of “Season of the Witch” (1973) or “Hungry Wives.”)

The Green Man is a nature spirit who represents licentiousness and liberation in the untamed wilderness. He represents mankind’s untamed nature. You’ll see  images of the Green Man in a lot of people’s gardens because he’s a spirit of growth and abundance.

He represents the difference between the “civilized” town-life and life in the wild, untamed forest. The pagans and the wise ones usually lived outside the city and were closer to nature, so he might be seen as a representation of paganism vs. Christianity. He is sometimes associated with Cernnunos, Pan, “The Horned God” or the Satyr.

Christian doctrine is opposed to the natural man. It is something I heard often among the Mormons. They said that god doesn’t like “the natural man” and his natural desires must be subordinated to the will of god. We find it in the Bible in the King James version of 1 Corinthians 2:14 “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

To many neo-pagans, Wiccans and other modern witches, the Green Man may be seen as a symbol of personal transformation. His face sprouting with new growth is a representation of a person transforming from a Christian (city-dweller) to a pagan (natural man or woman of the forest).

The Green Man motif is seen often in English literature. In Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream,” he is the fairy Puck, who places a spell on all of the people of the forest, including the fairy queen, the actors and the four lovers. The Green Man is a god of the Spring, of renewal and rebirth.’

Robin Goodfellow or Robinhood is another example of the use of the Green Man motif. Robin Goodfellow is a natural man, a law unto himself. He is a trickster and a little devil in the classic sense of the term, who gets the best of the evil Sheriff of Nottingham.

Another classic use of the Green Man motif can be seen in “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.” The Green Knight is a representation of the unknown dangers of the forest. We see J.R.R. Tolkein make use of this theme in the first book of “The Lord of the Rings” when the hobbits first leave the shire and meet Tom and his wife.

In Season of the Witch, we see writer and director George Romero make use of this classic literary motif to show what is happening to the main character, Joan. Joan is a Catholic who is slowly transforming into a natural woman – a witch.

Green Man Symbolism in Season of the Witch

If you haven’t already read my review of Season of the Witch, you’ll find them here: The first one is entitled, “Traditional Witch’s Review of the 1973 George Romero Movie, “Season of the Witch,” aka. “Hungry Wives” and “Jack’s Wife” and the second one is entitled, “Review of “Season of the Witch” (1973) or “Hungry Wives.”) These reviews discuss more of this movie’s theme and its overall use of symbolism.

Romero lamented in the documentary footage of the DVD for this movie that he didn’t have the money to shoot the scene where the main character, Joan, is being pursued in a nightmare by a man wearing a Green Man mask. He compares it to a similar scene in Rosemary’s Baby, which achieves a film effect closer to what he probably had in mind. But, the corresponding scene in Season of the Witch has marvelous symbolism in it and this really makes up for the whole thing. Romero’s use of symbolism throughout this movie is nothing short of brilliant.

You’ll want to pay close attention right from the opening sequence on because there’s nothing in this movie that’s not supposed to be there. The Green Man transformation happens to the main character, Joan, who is apparently a pretty heavily indoctrinated Catholic. While we’re all born witches, those who’ve been indoctrinated by the Christians have to find their way back to the forest and that’s symbolically what this movie is about… and it’s about women finding their freedom at the same time.

There is a sexual theme, but this has always been part of “selling your soul to the devil” – it’s in all the old witch trial accounts and folk lore about witches. Women who are witches are sexually free because they understand they are not owned by the church or a man. This is part of the green man transformation theme in this movie, which Romero really wrote to express his views on the Women’s Movement in the early 1970s.

Romero’s “Season of the Witch” is a movie is about both sexual liberation and witchcraft and these two things are intertwined throughout the movie. For example, in the ritual she conjures “Virago” – The term means a powerful, Amazon-like woman. So, she is conjuring her own power, essentially (this was adapted from Huson’s book and the original entity’s name is Vassago). And, the actress who plays this role is very statuesque and powerful-looking like an Amazon-woman, but her power has been usurped by her white, middle-class suburban life, which is what she has been told is an ideal. This was supposed to be the thing that made women happy, but she’s not happy, at all. Joan is about 40-years old and her life-choices were not very broad. Her friend Shirley is a little older and feels this even more intensely, that life has passed her by, she’s lost her sex appeal and she’s not ready for things to be over because there are so many things she wants to “cut loose” and do.

The man in the mask coming after her in her dreams is her own sexual liberation coupled with her interest in the occult, which subconsciously really scares her. She verbalizes her fear of the occult at the tarot reading and again before the conjuration. But, we really see her fear of both the occult and her own sexuality in the nightmare of the man in the Green Man mask.

Here the Green Man is a representation of Joan’s freedom from both Christianity (Green Man is a representation of the god of the witches) and her life in “the dog pound,” which is the prison of the middle-class existence of women. As much as Joan wants what he represents, she is afraid of him, so she her subconscious mind produces these nightmares about him chasing her though the house.

The ending is a little ironic, if that’s the right word. She ends up shooting her husband. As much as she’s afraid of witchcraft and all it represents, she is even more afraid of staying trapped in her present situation. Her fears drive her to accidentally shoot her husband.

Joan doesn’t like swearing and in the extended version, she and Shirley are about to leave Greg and Nikki during the discussion about witchcraft because of his use of foul language – in the theatrical version he uses the “F” word, which we’re used to now, but was really out of line, especially in the company of women in the 1970s. Also, at the dinner table, when she’s wearing the ashes on her head, the tea pot starts shaking (as if from her annoyance or anger) at her husband who is swearing on the phone. And, then the last thing we hear from her husband as he’s trying to open the door downstairs in the rain is “Son of a …” – and then there’s the shotgun blast and he’s dead!

I urge you to see Season of the Witch, especially if you like complex horror or have an interest in the subject of witchcraft because this movie portrays it very well.

The movie was done in Philadelphia in 1972 and released in 1973. But, it wasn’t promoted properly and maybe it was a little too deep for some audiences, especially those who were expecting a porno movie, which was one of the ways they tried to promote it. That’s why they called it “Hungry Wives.” The original title was “Jack’s Wife.” It wasn’t re-released again until 2005 under the title “Season of the Witch.” By this time people knew who George Romero was. But, this movie isn’t much like his later work. It’s much better, I think.

“What’s Next After Wicca? Non-Wiccan and Traditional Witchcraft“ was written to show the true history of Wicca in Britain and the development of neo-Wicca in the U.S. It tells the benefits and the drawbacks of what has become the most popular, accessible and socially acceptable form of witchcraft. Wicca is the most popular aspect of the occult today, but it is certainly not all there is. This book encourages readers who want more to continue their exploration of witchcraft and their study of its origins.

It was written by a metaphysical bookstore owner who often heard the question, “What else is there?” Find “What’s Next After Wicca? Non-Wiccan and Traditional Witchcraft“ by Sophia diGregorio at Amazon, Barnes & Noble.

How Learning to Read the Tarot Cards Can Open Up Your Psychic Abilities and Increase Your E.S.P.

Posted in Clairvoyance, ESP, Mediumship, Mediumship Development, occult, tarot, Traditional Witchcraft with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 16, 2013 by littleredridinghood
Prince-castracani-fibbia

This late 17th century painting depicts Prince Castracani Fibbia (1360-1419) with a deck of Tarot cards, tarocco bolognese. The Queen of Batons can be seen, bearing the Fibbia arms. Although, there is no historical evidence that Tarot had been invented until two decades after the Prince’s death.

One of the biggest benefits of learning to read the tarot is the increased psychic sensitivity that comes along with the practice. It may be that working with the Kabbalistic and astrological symbolism in the cards stimulates something in the brain that makes us more in tune with our psychic abilities. Or, it may simply be that as we become more accustomed to tapping into the subtle frequencies of the spiritual planes, it becomes easier to do.

Regardless of why you decide to learn to read the tarot, you will find the experience rewarding. And, as you become more adept as a tarot reader, the benefits of being a reader will grow. While you can use the tarot to increase your personal popularity or to make a little extra money – even establish yourself in a new career as a tarot reader – one of the most profoundly rewarding benefits is your connection with something most people only wonder about the existence of. There’s no word for it. But, it is a relationship with something beyond our ordinary, five-sense world.

Which are the Best Tarot Decks?

Your first deck is an important one. My first deck was a Zolar deck, which belonged to my great-grandmother. This deck had the meanings written upon each card. The Quick & Easy Rider-Waite Tarot is a good choice to begin with. After which, the plain Rider-Waite is desirable.

I am a tarot deck collector. I’ve never seen a tarot or oracle deck I didn’t like, at least, a little, but my absolute favorite deck to work with is Aleister Crowley’s Thoth deck. You can use any deck for a reading and get decent results. But, this deck has the most powerful imagery and symbolism in it, which will help you in your reading. Unlike the Rider-Waite deck is Kabbalistically correct.

Do not limit yourself to one deck when you are learning. Different decks illuminate and focus on different aspects of a card’s meaning. It helps to use multiple decks, at least, at some early intermediate stage in your study. Besides, tarot deck collecting is wonderfully fulfilling hobby!

How to Read the Tarot for Fun, Profit and Psychic Development for Beginners and Advanced Readers

You can go a long way learning the tarot on your own. The more dedicated you are, the faster you will progress in your study, which in the beginning is an exercise of memorization. If you have difficulty, check with a local metaphysical store to see if anyone is giving lessons on the tarot. For many people, learning in a workshop or group environment helps them learn faster and impresses the meanings of the cards on their minds more deeply than working entirely solo. Of course, you’ll still want to set aside plenty of time for self-study. Overall, learning the tarot is a solitary process.

You may find it helpful to keep a journal of meanings of the cards as you understand them individually. Also, record the meanings of cards in relation to other cards in readings. These can be mock readings in the beginning. Record any other impressions or sensations you experience during a reading, as well. Your journal can be fancy or plain. The best thing to start with is a simple spiral notebook.

You may choose to read the cards reversed or not. It may be in the beginning, that it is easier for you to read without considering the reversed position. You can always change your practice later.

Use the tarot manual that comes with your deck when you first begin to learn. But, do not rely too heavily on tarot manuals or you will never get past the rudimentary aspects of reading. Truly being able to read the tarot requires a thorough study of the Kaballah, astrology and numerology combined with your own gnosis or inner knowing.

Reading the Tarot Will Increase and Expand Your Psychic Abilities

Even in the beginning stages of reading, you will get some very satisfactory readings. As you become more skilled and more confident, your accuracy will grow. You will begin to amaze other people. And, then you will begin to amaze yourself!

And that, of all the rewards of becoming a psychic tarot reader, is the most highly beneficial outcome. It gives you a “knowing”. It is an amazing thing to simply know something that could not be known by any conventional means.

Furthermore, what you will know for yourself, beyond the shadow of a doubt, is that there is something beyond the world of the five senses. You will know that you are more than a human being or, as many people claim, a human animal – you are part of the divine and you have a divine mind. You will know this in a way which is beyond the power of ordinary words to express.

Spirit Communication: How to Conduct a Seance for One

Many people who are interested in making contact with spirits by means of a seance believe that they need to work with other living people. While it is nice to have a psychic development circle, it is not necessary to have another living person to conduct a seance. You can do it successfully entirely on your own.

In fact, many of the most successful psychic mediums are people who spend a great deal of time alone. Times of silence and peace in your home are the times when a spirit is best able to get through to you. Furthermore, the spirits of the dead are of great comfort and solace to the living, especially those who live alone or have few friends among the living.

One of the most important aspects of successful spirit communication is being psychologically open to receive communication from spirits. Distractions, noise and activity can all stand in the way of being open to receive messages from the metaphysical world.

Before you begin your seance, turn off noisy appliances and turn of the ringer on your phone. Eliminate any other distractions that might interfere with or cause contact with a spirit to be broken.
Overcoming Doubt

A common obstacle to spirit communication, which must be overcome is negative skepticism. While skepticism is a healthy trait, if you want to succeed at communicating with spirits, it is important to keep an open mind. It is best to approach any attempts at communication as you would any experiment.

Some skepticism is directly related to fear. In order to bridge the divide between the physical world and the one beyond, it is necessary to release any fear you may have of actually making contact. This may be a subconscious fear that if you do make contact, it will alter your present view of the world or that it will make you seem freakish or weird to others.

It is important to remember that spirit communication is perfectly normal and natural and it is our present culture that is at odds with reality.

The Importance of a Quiet Mind

Once you have a quiet place in which to conduct your seance for one, it is important that you proceed with a quiet mind, which is free from internal chatter. Set aside an hour or so one day per week and commit it to doing nothing but relaxing and quieting your mind for the purpose of making contact with spirits.

If you have difficulty quieting your mind, consider practicing yoga or some other form of meditation to train your mind to become more quiet and receptive.
Timing

Certain times seem to be better than others for making spirit contact, especially the first contact with a spirit. The weeks before and after Halloween are an ideal time to try to make first contact with spirits. But, there is no need to restrict your experiments to only this time of year.

Any time of the day or night can be a good time to make contact, although, late at night and after midnight is often preferred, if for no other reason than that it is quieter. Most people are settled in their homes, in bed or asleep, which means you are less likely to be distracted.

Successful spirit contact usually takes a great deal of patience and persistence. Once contact is made, make an appointment to meet with the spirit, again.
Environment

Create an pleasant environment with a vase of fresh flowers. Set a chair in the room for your spirit guest. If you hare having food or drink, set a place for your guest, as well. This signals your subconscious mind that you are open and receptive to communication. It, also, signals the spirit that you are open and receptive at this time.

Treat the spirits in your home as if they were living people. Invite them to sit down, eat or drink with you. Place a chair in your room just for them. If you are contacting the spirit of someone you once knew and you know their favorite food, drink or scents, place these things in the room to let them know you are interested in speaking with them.

Give the spirits permission to come into your home, to sit down and talk with you and they will.

It seems likely that most, if not all, people are psychic to some degree or other. Most people who are honest about it, have experienced something anomalous, something they cannot explain by conventional means. Although, it may be that there are a few people who never have such experiences and are naturally skeptical about such things.

Some people are born psychic, but for many people, psychic abilities develop a little later in life.

The first symptom that many people experience is very vivid dreams. Sometimes these dreams seem to portend some event. Other times, they may involve people who are far away or even deceased who come back to talk to you in a dream state.

Another common early symptom of psychic development is seeing or hearing unusual things during the waking state. This includes seeing or hearing apparent ghosts or spirits. It, also, may include seeing anomalous creatures and unidentified objects (U.F.O.s).

Sometimes people do not notice that they have the ability to see, hear and otherwise sense occurrences outside the normal five sense range until they live in a spiritually active house. This may be the first time they hear rapping noises or the sounds of other people living in the house with them who aren’t fully physical.

The most common experience that people have, which is a sign that a person, at least, has some natural ability to be psychic is having hunches or intuitive flashes. For example, if you know when the phone is about to ring or who is going to be on the other end when it rings, this is a sign that you have some psychic potential that can be developed.

How to Develop Your Psychic Abilities

Use a pendulum. One of the easiest things you can do to turn yourself into an instant psychic is to acquire a well-balanced pendulum and begin practicing with it. The pendulum is a very great psychic development tool that has an unlimited number of applications. To make a great leap in your psychic abilities, get a pendulum and start using it.

Practice some form of meditation that requires you to quiet your mind for, at least, short periods of time each day. This may be the recitation of Hindu mantras, Catholic prayers like the rosary or taking yoga classes. It is important to psychic development that you are able to discipline your mind.

Learn to read tarot cards. The cards are a very great psychic development tool. Even working with them a little bit can help open up psychic abilities. Committing to mastery of the tarot is the path to advanced psychic development.

Open your mind to the idea of communicating with spirits. If you haven’t bought into the Hollywood hype and are comfortable using a Ouija board, this can be a good tool for making contact with spirits. Automatic writing is another good method of receiving metaphysical messages. So, is holding your own seance on a regular basis.

How to Know if You are a Natural Witch: Examples of Witchcraft Powers

The Witch

To be a witch is to possess an innate power or natural ability to do things that most people don’t think are possible. Some people have a large supply of natural talent for witchcraft, which go beyond the ordinary. They are more than just psychics or mediums, but they are naturally endowed with other abilities, which they usually discover early in life.

While these abilities like these usually manifest early in the life of a witch, they may increase, especially later in life. Also, such latent abilities can first manifest after a person is exposed to a severe or prolonged trauma, as discussed in Black Magic for Dark Times by A. Kaelin, which is a spell book written especially for crime survivors.

The Difference Between a Witch and a Psychic

Witches may know what’s going to happen before it happens, they may have the ability to see what others do not, such as manifestations of spirits, they may be able to hear other people’s thoughts and they may have very strong emotional sensitivities. But, true witchcraft power goes beyond just having highly developed psychic abilities, although this is an important part of it. Apart from having psychic abilities, natural witches are able to do things outside the ordinary. This ability is what sets witches apart from people who are merely psychic.

Another way to state the difference between psychics and witches is to say that a psychic can foretell the future, while a witch has the ability to consciously alter it.

Examples of Witchcraft Powers or Abilities

The following are examples, some are personal experiences of the author and some are the experiences of others, which illustrate the first inkling natural witches have that they may possess other than ordinary abilities. Although these examples are partially from my personal experience and from other people’s real life experiences, third-person and fictitious names are used here for both anonymity and ease of discussion:

Julie is a powerful natural healer who has a memory of being five-years old and flying in a circle around her mother’s living room. At some point she lost this ability, but her memory of it is vivid.

Toni was 12-years old when she first spotted a new boy who was visiting family from out of state. She was struck by his exotic good looks. She was scheduled to attend a dance and although she didn’t expect him to be there, right before it was time to go, she fell into a deep reverie in which she imagined the boy was there and asked her to dance. When she arrived at the dance she sat with some other girls for a little while and when the music started, exactly as she had pictured it in her mind, the boy of her dreams strode across the floor and asked her to dance with him, which she did. This is one of her earliest memories in which she believed she was able to cause events to happen by focusing on her desires intently. She later began a study of witchcraft and was able to deconstruct and exercise this ability more consciously.

When Adriana was 16-years old, she was an avid bibliophile who could often be found sitting quietly in a corner absorbed in a book. Her brother often made fun of her for this. On one occasion when he was mocking her as he so often did, she became very angry and spontaneously directed the force of her rage at him, sending him tumbling down the stairs. It was then that she first knew she had extraordinary abilities.

Diana was 15-years old and interested in a boy at school. Her parents had forbidden her to talk to him, but she disobeyed them and was caught talking to him on the telephone. Her parents became very angry and sent her to her room. In her sadness and anger, she stared out the window at a single cloud in the sky. In a matter of seconds, a wind swept through, the sky turned dark and threatening, then suddenly the rain began to pour. Diana soon discovered that she was able to cause storms at will and thus began her interest in the study of witchcraft.

Sandy was 18-years old and making her first cross-country trip alone. As she was driving down the highway, two men pulled up next to her and began harassing her and driving very dangerously. She became very angry and directed her rage at the car beside her. Immediately, smoke began rolling out of the hood and the drivers were forced to the side of the road. Sandy, who was frequently the target of such harassment when alone, was able to repeat this experiment a few times. This is how she knew she had an unusual ability and sought an explanation and a way to control it.

Are You a Natural Witch?

If you have ever had any experiences like these, then you are probably a natural witch who already knows the truth for yourself.

The only people who do not believe in witchcraft powers are those who do not possess them. Once people make the discovery that they have these abilities, they often want to develop them, hone their skills and increase their natural power. You can do this by studying the world-wide practice of traditional witchcraft (not the religion Wicca) and applying and experimenting with what you find.

There are techniques you can use to develop your skills whether you have had these experiences or not, but it comes easier to people who already know witchcraft is real and have some natural ability. It’s harder for those who have to take a leap of faith (belief in something they have not personally experienced) to approach the study witchcraft and its underlying esoteric science.

And, as wonderful as a lot of witchcraft fiction is, it can really obscure the truth about witchcraft, so people have to sort out for themselves what is “real” – what is possible and what isn’t. In fact, the term “natural witch” may very well be borrowed from the 1993 movie, “The Craft,” in which the bookstore owner tells Sarah she has natural powers inherited from her mother. But, witchcraft is not necessarily a genetic trait anymore than any other kind of natural talent. This is not to say that it can’t run in families, but more often it seems to be something that is in the individual – or not – regardless of lineage.

If you have had personal experiences similar to those mentioned in this article, then you may very well be a natural witch. It’s up to you to study traditional witchcraft and other aspects of the occult and further develop your abilities.
