You might want to do a work space for yourself & substitute LED candles if you have toddlers; brew a 4-element herbal aerosol to replace incense, or brew, a cuppa Bigelow’s Constant Comment tea - the ingredients dispel harmful vibes.
Natural Magic uses your empathic ability to connect to your surroundings & the Genius Loci. Witches work with the Earth’s telluric & orgone energies - ground and center yourself by drawing power to the gut on the breath. Keep a journal of your findings as you go.
Use your intuitive ability to make symbolic associations for the usefulness of natural materials; attractive or repellent appearances, textures and aromas suggest magical uses.
Make a starter kit - candles, incense, matches, fragrant kitchen herbs, salt & olive-oil; uniquely marked ⚡️or shaped 💛🌛stones; repurpose household dishes & small jars. Tip: birthday candles are cheap & come in colors.
Set Intent with incantations - say what you want your spell results to be & not what you don't want; think of the goal & not the need; draw power to the gut on the breath & push it through your hands into the spell; use materials that match properties to the intention for added energy.
Spell Methods to Know - amulet, bottle, candle, knot, mandala, potion, sigil, trance. See the Spells posts.
I started with a rose bush found on a yard waste burn pile in the alley, & a potted Easter lily from on top of a trash can. I found a 100lb rock laying in the road for landscaping… voila, my 1st flower 🌸 garden. I relocated pine & cedar seedlings I’d found in a sidewalk crack that are 30’ tall now. The squirrels surprised me again this year with 2 🌻🌻 sunflowers planted in a perfect location for them.
