The Magick of Knowing

Recently I had an opportunity
to speak with someone I very much admired
within the Spiritual Community.
After a few minutes of conversation,
I began to feel uneasy.

Here was this person generously sharing
spells, their experiences and "spiritual" advice.
Yet it didn't seem right.
Much of what was said I know NOT to be true.
I came away disappointed.
Here is an Author of books, giving service to
the spiritual community.
People listen. They believe.
Therein lies the problem.

Magick is
It is Not just believing what others
have told you.
You must Know it.
It must be experienced.

Working with a particular herb in a spell
you've read is all well and good,
But do you connect with that herb?
Do you know why it works for that spell?
Is it the right Herb for you? For your purpose?

Magick is personal.
Magick comes from within.
Each flower, crystal, stone has it's own energy.
We must connect.
If we can not connect,
How can we expect our magick to succeed?

At it's very essence,
Magick is change, transformation
Learning how to make that change,
to transform takes work .
But with that work comes knowing
and after all, knowledge is power.

May you come to Know for yourself


  1. I agree that spiritual truth is experiential. We must experience it for ourselves before we can know something is the truth. Others' experience simply cannot be a substitute or short cut.

  2. As in any spiritual walk I think we all have to be careful not to "admirer" someone so much that we allow that person to dictate how our path will travel. It is a personal experience and thus we have the responsibility to ourselves to search out our own answers.. Although I do know what you mean about that feeling. It can be disheartning... blessings

  3. You are so right- knowing is one thing but experiencing is another...sometimes I read books on magick or the Pagan Path and something doesnt quite feel right..But living and learning is as much a journey into knowing and trusting ourselves as learning from others..tho' I have learned some wonderful things from wonderful people- you included!!
    Have a Happy Week,
    Cally x x x

  4. I couldn't agree with you more. Reading about the correspondences of an herb or stone does not a Witch make. Great post.

  5. Thank You All,
    For your wise Words!

    Cally, Thank you for your kind words and for the wonderful gift! Hoping to try & post a pic when I get back.

  6. I almost forgot...
    Welcome Back Debra!

  7. Thank you! I don't come here NEARLY enough! What's the matter with me! ;-) You are so generous with yourself. Every time I visit and read your wise words my heart and soul are warmed. There is something in every one of your posts that resonates within me. I take it in and allow it to roll around with my inner voice until it finds just the right spot and makes itself at home. Therein is the "knowing" that you are a great gift. May the Goddess bless you with Her presence every moment of every day. Bright Blessings!

  8. Jacque,
    That is so very generous of you!
    I am grateful that Our Lady guided our
    paths to cross! You are a friend and a sister.
    Blessings and a Hug...
