Hey Witches

So I was thinking, well…that’s all I seem to do. I consistently cast spells on myself to help me get what I want/need but…they never seem to work. Every spell I write for someone else, or cast for someone always works. Has this happened to anyone else? It just confuses me. If I truly NEED something it seems to work, my protection spells seem to be extremely strong (thank goodness) – I also remember when I was young, I was riding my bike way too far away from home and I was so tired I called for help, for a “kind stranger” to give me a lift. Not even a few minutes later my friend had asked his older friend with a truck to come pick me up. This was before everyone had a cell phone so it shocked me that they knew exactly where I was. That was the turning point for me when I knew I had a gift.

So still, why do other spells seem to kind of go…poof? It scares me to be so open and honest on the internet, but I’ve been casting love spells on myself consistently for quite a while. I just cast one that was from a real traditional witch’s coven too. It has only been a week but I am not sure anything happened. I’m always afraid that I’m just cursed to be alone. Every time I meet someone whom I think could be a possibility, something INSTANTLY goes wrong. The very next day (I kid you not, every single time) I find out that the person was lying to me the entire time. I have dreams nearly on a nightly basis of being in a relationship, so I wake up depressed, just like I did today. So mind my terrible, dark, sad poetry every once in a while haha.

My very first love spell worked almost instantly and I’m just afraid that, I only had one shot and I messed it up. I am afraid that I pissed the spirits off when I was so greedy and ungrateful for what was given to me. I was 17, give me a little slack? Please? Ever since that relationship (to give you a timeline, I am now 30) I have had this issue… For 12 years I have been single, I have never dated anyone longer than about 5 days…is that really dating? When someone is interested in me my mind tends to block any feelings, and when I am interested in someone, they end up hurting me….every damn time. So I keep casting love spells. I just wonder if i am waiting for someone specific…or if I was waiting for someone who doesn’t exist anymore… Helping others magickally makes me feel very good so I will keep doing as such. I will always share my gift to you…but, I wish I could share it with myself from time to time.

So if anyone out there has ever had this problem, please tell me. Any guidance is appreciated. I just feel stuck. I’ve been able to help someone get pregnant, spice of their love life, bring success to their business, protect people from evil dark spirits, enact powerful curses to make someone wise up and change the horrendous, destructive path they were leading…but I can’t cast a simple love spell on me?! I’m not looking for a cosmic reward…Though the lottery numbers would be nice, spirits, you hear me? Maybe? COME ON…. I probably will add another love spell on my page with traditional aspects and a little Latin. It seems to be the most requested type of spell there is from my page. The language is infuriatingly difficult to translate, but I will try. Let me know what you guys think, I am always open for discussion.

Since this is a blog on witchcraft, I will leave you with a little magick…

Dream Lover

Ingredients:

Rose oil

Lavender

Sandalwood

Rosemary

A small thin bag/sachet

The Spell:

If you want to dream of your lover, follow this simple spell. Create a sachet with lavender, rosemary and sandalwood and place it under your pillow. Dab your pillow with a drop or two of rose oil just before bed. Close your eyes, breathe in the fragrance and think about your lover. Wave your hand back and forth across your pillow, feel the energy flow from your heart, into your palm and down into the pillow. Repeat this spell three times.

Somnium Amoris

(sohm-knee-um ah-more-ees)

When you fall asleep, he or she will appear in your dream. Do not have a lover? Do not think of anyone specific, just the idea of having someone. Your subconscious will do the rest, trust me!

Alright friends, I will end this blog here today. I hope some of you got something out of it, and I look forward to talking with you….as always…

sweet serenity,

Hello Everyone!

I did a spell that someone gave me about 6 months ago that required me to prick myself 3 times and add blood to an elixir. I KNEW this was going to be the most difficult part. The spell called for a dove’s feather, you’d think that would be difficult….but not as difficult as getting blood out of my body! I’m such a wimp when it comes to this stuff. I took a knife and just started poking myself. I got some blood to come out of the palm of my hand, but not enough to drip. I even pushed real hard against the skin of my forearm. All it did was leave a small red dot behind. Did I develop some kind of super powers where my skin is impenetrable? Maybe I’m anemic and don’t have a whole lot of blood flow? I thought to myself….how in the hell do witches do this?! I didn’t want to risk hurting myself badly so, I figured I would look it up…

blood dropletMy first stop was to see if there were any videos on Youtube, a modern day witches tutorial… I couldn’t find any. I think too many of us are old school. Then I came across a diabetic, and BINGO. I should have realized this before. They need to prick themselves daily to test their blood. They have a handy tool to do this, so we would need a needle or something just as sharp. I learned to not poke the tip of your finger, or the pad like you see on TV. I’m lookin’ at you Charmed! The trick is to prick your finger on the side of the tip, just to the right or left of your nail. Once you break the skin, you need to apply pressure to the base of your finger and push upward. This should give you plenty of blood drops.

Why did I need this you ask? What exactly is blood binding? This type of magick has been used by traditional witches for centuries. Blood is your life’s essence, the ultimate personal effect. Adding your blood to certain spells will bind you directly to the spell itself. There is one small caveat, you will ultimately bind yourself to the spell for as long as the spell is active. If you use this for the wrong types of spells, or mess up on a spell, you will be bound to it. Example? Casting a love spell and using incorrect ingredients, attracting someone you do not want. You will be bound to this person until you break the spell…but that is easier said than done. Breaking a love spell is difficult enough without the use of blood binding. Do your research, trust your instincts and please, do not cast love spells without the proper knowledge or intent.

The use of blood binding is taboo in some covens, mostly due to the dangers I just mentioned. All magick is dangerous, it is purely about intent and power. How much power you need, and if your intent is pure. I would and have only used blood in specific situations, and with the spell I did tonight, my body is still tingling. You can use blood binding to bind your essence to items like protection amulets or charms, this will bind the charm directly to you and can easier grant yourself protection, however, lets say you lose that charm or give it to someone else, you will be bound to whomever has the charm or amulet. Therein lies the danger of blood binding. I know I’ve said this a bunch, but use caution!

So again, I do not recommend using blood binding unless your spell completely requires it.

–ANOTHER WARNING–

In this day and age, there are a lot of blood diseases, the most obvious is HIV. Make sure that if you are using/ingesting blood, that it is your own. Following what I said above should protect you magickally, but following what I’m saying now should protect you medically.

I will not be giving any spells that involve blood magick, as I do not know your experience or intent, I just would not want to risk it. I apologize. I may come up with one to charge a protection amulet. I will have to decide later, but I will be updating my blog with more spells very soon, thank you for reading! Make sure to comment so I can know your thoughts on this blog and blood binding in general.

The Tunnel – A DMagick Poem

The Tunnel

How do I find a way out of the darkness when there’s no light at the end of my tunnel?

Spending years rushing madly through the corridor, tripping over obstacles, slamming into walls.

I find it more and more difficult to pick myself up and continue on, my body is bruised and broken.

My spirit drained of life, the air is thick, heavy and the harder I breathe the less I can take.

When does it end, where does it end? Why can I not find my light? If only it were quiet, so I could hear my thoughts. I’ve never lied to myself before.

Waves crashing, cars smashing into one another, screams of weeping strangers clouding my thoughts.

Like sharp metal claws scorched black by the flames of pain my past latches on to me. A decade lies in waste and the only thing I can see in this perpetual darkness.

Each year adding a weight of regret and mistakes to my frail legs and tired arms.

Just let me rest…

sweet serenity,

Greetings!

No, I am not going to enter into a long inspiring speech here guys, I am just going to tell you about a dream I had and the research that followed. I never know if my dreams are prophetic, procogniscent (that’s totally not a word but I’m making it one, pertaining to dreaming about the past) or just my mind’s fun way of telling me that I might be crazy. Between you and I though, I totally am, just don’t tell my mind that! This dream though, really stuck out to me.

The Crone from Charmed to illustrate what I saw

The only thing I can remember is lying down on a bed and an old woman was at the foot looking at me, rubbing my feet and getting me to tell her things that I didn’t want to tell her. I didn’t feel in danger though, it was almost like my inner voice was saying “You bitch, I can’t believe you’re making me say this.” She wasn’t evil, just beating me at my own game….

WITCHCRAFT!

Damn crones, always with the wise woman bullshit…….anyway.

All I kept thinking is she had to be using Hot Foot Powder, but it wasn’t just Hot Foot, it had to be mixed with something else. Hot Foot Powder for those who don’t know, is a hoodoo powder used to get those who cross it in their tracks to leave permanently. The idea behind the powder didn’t explain how she was controlling what I was saying, or why I was answering her questions so honestly.

The point of the dream was not in the answers as I don’t remember anything that was said. All I kept shouting in my head was “Hot Foot Powder, but not” over and over again. So this got me to thinking, what if I could spin an old Hot Foot recipe into a commanding powder that would only work by placing it directly onto the feet. I’m not sure who would use this as there might be easier ways to get truthful answers….but it made sense. What if you had a partner who you were wondering if they were faithful or not. You could offer them a foot rub and say you got this spicy new oil to use. The Hot Foot portion would bring the tingle aspect (main herbs being cayenne or red pepper) but the secret ingredients would compel them to say whatever you want them to say.

I dove into research mode. I looked into Hoodoo recipes and traditional witchcraft recipes and I believe I found my answer! I am going to disappoint a few of you readers here as I cannot give you my recipe. I just feel that if I am correct, this powder, if recreated by the wrong person, can do some heavy damage and I don’t want it so easily accessible. I will say this though, once I get my store up and running, I may sell it. If anyone wants to purchase it directly, just Email Me.

In my research I did read that the herb Patchouli is quite unique. Most use it for money or love drawing and even jinx breaking. I learned however, that the herb will take the essence of those around it. What does this mean for the Hot Foot Compelling Powder? Patchouli has a natural drawing power, hate the smell or love it, it will ALWAYS bring you to it….but, if the herb is mixed with other herbs of a darker nature, it will develop a dark nature as well.

Patchouli

Patchouli – more than just for hippie detection

My thought process is, the dark drawing essence that will be given to Patchouli will draw out the truth from the person, it will compel them to say what you want to hear regarding matters of the heart. Also noted, it should mask the sulphur scent of the Hot Foot Powder…you’re welcome. I added other items and took away some that would not work with this mixture and have come up with what I feel strongly will work. This powder could be sprinkled in the person’s shoes or socks, you’ll know it’s working if they appear slightly uncomfortable. The nature of the powder is not to harm the person just throw them off their game. The powder can also be mixed with a little oil if you use the foot rubbing method I spoke of before. I need to try this, I just don’t actually have a reason to. I’ll keep you posted as always!

–A QUICK WARNING–

This powder is designed to compel the target to tell you exactly what you want to hear and there is a downside. If you focus too much on what you THINK the answer is, that is what you will hear….and it may not be the truth. A spell like this required extreme focus and should only be used if you are experienced. I cannot stress this enough. So if you purchase this from me, or do research and make something similar just use caution. Focus on the truth coming out of the target, not any specific words. I would practice this technique before using the powder.

Latin Protection Chant

protection pentagram Latin Protection Chant

I wanted to make a quick and easy protection chant if you needed a small boost to your defenses. This spell uses your guiding spirit as a psychic shield and would be used in specific instances. This spell will not last and should not be abused.

Ingredients:

White Candle
Saltpeter
Salt

The Spell:

While the candle is in front of you, light it and say

Spiritus Ducentia Protego Me
(spee-ree-two-s | due-ken-tea-ah | pro-teg-oh | meh)

Once the candle is lit, sprinkle your salt and saltpeter mixture over the flame and say three times

Protego Me
(pro-teg-oh | meh)

Visualize your guardian spirit surrounding you with energy shielding you from harm then blow out the candle. You can use this same candle anytime you need a boost, just repeat the spell. I have created a video to go along with this spell to show you how it’s done.

Let me know what you think and if it helps you. Also if you like the video feel free to tell me in the comments here or on Youtube! Talk to you soon everyone.

Hi There

Been months since you’ve heard from me? My bad. I don’t know what it is, I’m just a little too lazy when it comes to actually blogging. Sorry! You know when you go to youtube, then realize it’s tomorrow? …anyway, lets continue!

Mandrake9 Mandrake

Well Harry Potter had some if it correct. I kind of love when fantasy books base their ideas on real history. In ancient Europe it was said that the man like root would scream once pulled and kill the harvester. This of course is just a story as I firmly believe it would be impossible. Yes I know, a skeptical witch. I believe in ghosts, fairies and that I got my friend pregnant with a potion…but not a deadly scream from a plant.

Peters, Hermann.
Pictorial History of Ancient Pharmacy. 3rd ed.
Chicago: G. P. Englehard, 1902, c.1899.
Ebling Library call number RS 61 P48

In its earlier days, the plant was used as a sedative and a pain killer…but a killer it was. Ingest too much and the plant would be fatal. Mandrake, being in the atropa genus and nightshade family, is highly poisonous. Does atropa and nightshade look familiar? Any herbal loving, potion making witch should know it instantly. Yes, mandrake is related to Atropa Belladonna, or Deadly Nightshade (one of my favorites). Another amazing sedative that will instantly kill you if you use too much. Oh the amazing sleeping potion I could make…*cough* don’t do it, I don’t recommend it at all! (though it totally works)

Through my studies I’ve seen a LOT of spells for love using mandrake, probably due to it’s “human-like” nature. I guess if you squint, they kind of look like human bodies. I’ve of course have never pulled one from the Earth, but hey maybe. The beauty behind this herb is its attractive and repellent nature. How is this possible you ask? Mandrake is a wonderful catalyst, it just depends on what you put with it. You can use it to attract love, attract wealth and good fortune, or you can use it to repel evil or attacks, be them magickal or physical.

Try adding the root to your conjure bags or powders and see if it gives it the extra boost you need. I know I use mine all the time. I have a very special money charm I use that works very well. Mandrake is the key ingredient in this, aided by cinnamon and bay. If you have had luck with mandrake, let me know in the comments what you’ve done with it, I’d love to hear about it!

Alright my magickal friends, I hope to see you soon. I’ll try to find more ideas to blog about and hope you enjoy them!

Welcome to my movie review

beautiful creatures

Beautiful Creatures Movie Poster

Hello everyone! I really wanted to write a quick movie review of this movie, Beautiful Creatures. When I saw the trailer I was hooked and completely excited for it to come out. Anything that explores magick in a more adult way really intrigues me. I had not read the books due to the fact that i’m not much of a reader. I enjoy movie remakes of books (when done well) so I feel like I get the story without trying to force myself into reading.

I waited anxiously for reviews to come out for the movie, just HOPING they were good. They kept comparing the movie to Twilight, which really scared me because I absolutely hated those movies. (sorry twihards) I was really thinking this movie could stray away from twilight’s 13 year old fangirl following. Then I started reading the reviews….my heart sank…I finally watched it, and here’s what I thought.

Meh…

So I’ll tell you why. The beginning was quite slow, but rushed at the same time, I know that sounds odd but that is what I felt. The main character’s accent really bothered me for some reason. The dreaming of a girl and having her show up was not too original, but I didn’t mind it in the “love story” sense. What really bothered me is how quickly they fell “in love” what was it, 10 minutes? This kid has never heard of this type of magick, and the entire rest of the town were afraid of “those people” but when he was introduced to her gift he was only shocked for 2 minutes, then BAM “omg you’re so great, I love you again”. There was absolutely NO development what so ever! Let alone the fact that the two main characters weren’t that great of actors, not bad though.

The part about the locket really confused me and I don’t believe they explained it well at all, anyway..we get into the meat of the movie and are introduced to more characters. The best and most under utilized character? Ridley. First of all Emmy Rossum nailed that character, but here’s the problem…SHE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING!!! Lets go to the family meal “fight”. They keep saying that lena will be, key phrase, the strongest out of them all once she is claimed. They go the whole movie saying she can’t control her powers. Oh really? She seems to have complete control the ENTIRE time. So she throws a temper tantrum and big things happen…when she tries she controls whatever she wants, but in the scene she spins the room and the table when she’s pissed off at Ridley and the bitch just stands there yelling at her…why aren’t you doing anything? Do you have ANY power? Did the book have this scene the same way where Lena just schooled Ridley? The effects were great, but the scene was boring, especially with the introduction of a bunch of characters the movie clearly cares nothing about. Then poof, you don’t see ridley again utnil the end of the movie…LAME.

As I write this I can’t even remember half of what happened, so you can see how memorable it was. The next character I want to talk about is Sarafine, the most powerful dark caster ever….really? Are you sure about that? I’m pretty sure she didn’t do shit and Lena, again was stronger before she was claimed by binding the house.. The book HAD to have done more with Sarafine than the movie did…also side note, Emma Thompson was amazing as usual.

The movie really picked up near the end and I felt myself enjoying it. There were unexplained boring parts about finding out what the curse was and blah blah blah. I really don’t want to ruin anything just in case some of you want to still watch it but I feel the end was anticlimactic, I know they were basing it off a book that has a series but you can still do something huge and have some sort of closure or keep the viewer interested. This movie didn’t succeed at either.

So to end, Lena was too strong, her character didn’t develop at all. The love story was too rushed and forced. The supportive cast held the movie together as the leads were lackluster. The special effects were done fairly well and the dark tone was appreciated, however the lighting was severely underwhelming and didn’t seem to have much focus at all, some scenes felt cheap and badly directed. The emotion wasn’t there when it was supposed to be which made the sacrifices feel in vain. The last “battle” was too easy.

I give this movie…

Blog Much?

Hello Everyone

 

I’ve been thinking a lot about blogging again, I just wish I had the time and the ideas to keep this going. When it comes to witchcraft, it’s not as exciting as it is on TV. I guess that is a good thing. I have a few ideas for blog posts so hopefully I will get my thoughts together and get on them soon. I need to cast something as well.

My love spells have all unfortunately…not gone as planned. There is something I’m missing. I thought that when I personally cast them on myself, my focus isn’t as direct as one needs to perform these spells. I’ve had many people attracted to me, some didn’t even know why but the feeling was there, I felt it too….the problem you ask? They weren’t available, not a single one. “If my current relationship doesn’t work out, I would love to be with you” well that’s just great. I had this idea to ask my other witchy friend to cast one on me, see what that does. Maybe if someone else does it, and I don’t think about it, it won’t get all messed up this time. We’ll see how it goes.

Let’s see, what else…OH I tried to grow belladonna…nope hahaha I never did have a green thumb, sad.

One final thing, for all my water signs out there, make sure you are re-energizing yourself often with water. I was in a pool yesterday and just slowly swam back and forth with my ears underwater and it was the best feeling I’ve had in a very long time. Water creates energy and you can absorb it when you focus. I know this will be difficult for some of you on the east coast, but anytime you can, go to a large body of water, a pool, heck maybe take a slightly longer shower…but just don’t forget that it’s a large energy source for us, when you are feeling drained, it really helps…trust me!

 

 

I’ll blog again soon, with important stuff.

The Curse – A DMagick Poem

The Curse

you think you can touch that which does not feel
your unapologietic careless attitude is supported only by what I want you to think
the negativity that secretes from within your empty heart is my fuel
The fuel that ignites the fiery disdain i hold for your kind
I sit alone in the darkness weaving your pain into fate’s tapestry
completely unaware, I smirk at your screams of questioning
no accountability is held of your crimes
ignorant in fact, to that which you committed
your pain grows deeper, my darkness stronger
my infinte veins wrapped tightly around your neck
I feed on your sorrow, I drink from your tears
Your nightmares are showcased for me to enjoy
Begging the aether for solace
My tight, twisted embrace cocoons your soul
No longer can you see the light you took for granted
No longer can you feel the warmth you stole from me
Your eyes now black and rolled back in your mind
I’ve taken what I wanted
Into your chest I reach to end what you started
the rhythmic beat of your life pulses within my grasp
There you will stay until my demise

sweet serenity,

Never The Will – A DMagick Poem

Never The Will

by D. Tovar

Never the will of the man of the many

That allows his heart to bleed

No thought is sought, nor memory recalled

To plant this hurtful seed

Never the will of this man or any

That sends one’s mind to sleep

What night reveals and does not shield

Locked inside the man does keep

Never the will of the man of the many

To find the mate of one man’s soul

He sits in sorrow and sobs insanely

With not the ability to keep control

Never the will of this man or any

That allows himself to feel

Though never the will of the man, again

Permits his heart to heal

Always the will of the man of the plenty

To find his one true mate

When half meets whole, the missing soul

The will of the man is led by fate

 

I was in the writing mood while writing my book and this poem started to pop into my head so I pushed to finish it. I know exactly what I meant and was wondering if any of you can decode it. Let me know if you understand what I’m saying and what the point of the poem is🙂 Thank you for reading!

sweet serenity,
