The Craft of Conjuring

Wiccan magick is old, my family history goes back nine generations with hints of more, so much more. When I hear that Wicca is a new religion I smile, Wicca is the second oldest religion in the world. The first religion according to archaeological history was Shamanism. From Shamanism, the people of the earth moved into a time where they adored the planet, the bountiful harvests and beauty. That was 25,000 years ago, surely older than some want-to-be historian of Wicca will sell you in their latest novel. The druids came long before a best-selling book, instructing you on how to cast a spell or perform a ceremony.

I believe in tradition, in ancient rituals that cleanse the heart of evil and fill you with white magick. In this time of electronic gizmos, instant gratification and sexual abandon, sometimes it's wonderful to take a breather and get back to nature. In this frame of mind, I came across a very old entry in my families Book of Shadows that explains how to change a "Foe into a Friend" spell. I've used this when I was in high school and was very pleased with the results. Using pure, white magick is about bending, being flexible and respecting all other cultures/people. So try this to win over that office nuisance or offensive mother-in-law..."And you do no harm, do what ye will".

1.   Write your name on one side of a piece of wood. (try an ice cream stick)
2.   Write your enemy's name on the other side.
3.   Cut a five-pointed star out of pink cloth or paper.
4.   Place both items into a crockery jar. (I use a glass jar with a screw on lid)
5.   Fill the jar, half with sugar/half with stream water and cover.
6.   Shake the jar thrice times three for nine days as you say sweetly for the crows nine calls, with pure intent...

My sweet thoughts of thee, your sweet thoughts of me
Are in (enemy's name) mind constantly
I do thee no harm, I offer myself on one knee
Blessed be, so mote it be 


  1. Nice blog site.

    My question has to do with Wicca vs. Witch Craft. Some say Wicca isn't old because it was "invented" in the 1950s by a man who took some of the tradition and included it while leaving other things out. This issue seems to provoke debates on line where solitaries who practice the craft as it was handed down in their families say they don't care for the changes in Wicca that aren't part of the "real tradition." Others use Wicca and the craft as the same thing. How do you see this?


  2. Malcolm,

    The lone practioner will personalize their beliefs based on what they've learned, what they "know" to be true and what feels right to them. Whether a Wiccan is new and just now understanding the power of Wicca or a child of generations of Wiccans really doesn't matter. The debate takes away from the point that "First, you do no harm...then do as ye will." If you can practice in good faith to the God and Goddess, if you can treat all creatures with respect to their nature and practice white are Wiccan...Pagan...Druid...or some form of religion that dates back to Egypt and beyond. It takes centuries to develop a pattern of faith and I applaud the neuvo Wiccans and their organized practices. But one must work at being a good Wiccan follower/leader. This is not a fad, it is a long-held belief that has been lovingly passed down through the generations. Blessed Be )O(

  3. Much to think about here. Thanks so much for the clarifications.
