Fire has a magical intensity that is unexplainable. We are fascinated by the glow of a candle, the crackling of a campfire or a distant star burning brightly in the sky. Candle gazing can lull you into a trance. The … Continue reading

Do you realize you’re always telling an energetic story?
That energetic story is narrated by your thoughts, feelings, ideas, beliefs and fears. It dictates the atmosphere of your life. The things you are bring in and pushing out. The energetic story you are telling may not be the one you want to tell.
This could be the cause of unhappiness, failed ventures, and lack of motivation, or love… or whatever else you keep reaching for, but never get your hands on.
Do you want to be happy? Do you want to manifest the life you want?
When you know your energetic story, you can consciously create the things you desire.
The Gypsy Talks: Energy will cover 3 areas
- What energetic story are you telling?
- How can you clear blocks of energy?
- How can you direct energy to get what you want?
We will discuss how your thinking is adding or taking away from your awesome life! How to perform spiritual cleansing and protection to clear the slate of negative energy. And, we will talk about techniques such as a vision board for manifestation, and a few other morsels of magical stuff!
We will discuss these key areas as a group, and allow space for questions to be asked!

Rose water has become one of my all time favorite spiritual cleansing tools. Sometimes you just need a gentle lift in the atmosphere. I’ve found that using authentic rose water in an atomizer can bring about so many wonderful changes in the energy and texture of a persons aura, or the environment… not to mention it smells amazing!
There is something so soothing about the way rose water works. It envelops the energy in the area, and transmutes it into a lovely, delicate vibration that is conducive to peace and positive thinking. I like to mist my space before a reading. I also mist myself in the morning before my day begins to “lift my spirit” and at key times throughout the day.
I’ve found rose water to be a wonderful tool for creating a magnetic aura. When you mist yourself you raise your vibration and surround yourself in a beautiful glowing light that pulls positive people toward you. It helps you to communicate affectively, and eloquently.
Authentic rose water is the hydrosol by-product from distilled rose petals in the process of creating rose essential oil. It has such a lovely smell and it is great for your skin. It can be added to foods and drinks to infuse a delicious floral flavor!
Rose water has become such an essential part of my spiritual practice. I use it to bless objects, such as crystals, candles or things that I’ve thrifted. This is a great way to clear the object, and to give it a nice spark of magic!

There is magic in trying, but not knowing. Sometimes you have to close your eyes and go along for the ride. I have danced in the dark many times… and some how I have always came out unscathed. My scars are badges that mark the successes of my journey. You may not see the strength in your beauty as you go through life… because it’s not always easy to see the road you’ve traveled unless you learn to fly overhead.
It’s not worth trying to rationalize the dreams we have. I’m finished with reason and sensibility… it’s not what seems logical, it’s what feels wonderful. I am living my life for me, for all the things I love, for what makes me vital. If it feeds my spirit then it’s right. Regardless of how insane that may seem.
There should be no regret in heeding the call. It may be misunderstood, but then again that is in the eyes of onlookers… and you should never do it for them anyway. I’ve traveled the edge of dreamland and stood astounded by the glory and mystery. Those moments live in my heart, delicious seeds germinating in silence. The dream hasn’t ended because the dream has just begun.
Here I stand in the threshold of what was, what is, what will be… what has always been, and yet hasn’t had a chance to begin. And here I will jump of the ledge and the embrace of angel wings will lift me up beyond the pain. I will soar, you can soar, there is room enough for us all to fill the skies… there can never be too many stars shinning in the night.
Reach out your hand, close your eyes, and dive. Don’t play the game, just jump in and dance. You can’t change their actions, or reactions, you can only grind to your own rhythm. And remember… if you do it in love, if you do it in trust, if you do it because it feels right to your heart… then it will touch everyone around you in a positive way, either now or someday, and magic will bloom until it fills the room, the eyes and the spirits of everyone.

Spiritually cleanse the air by burning a smudge of rosemary springs (like a sage smudge). Make an strong tea from springs, and add to your mop water for an effective spiritual cleansing and energy lift in the home or business. You can strong springs of rosemary together with red silk thread to create charms of protection. Hang them in doorways, windows and corners to help strengthen the aura of the space. Adding of few drops of rosemary essential oil to your wrist will bring about a lightening effect, and is great before business meetings (CAUTION: if pregnant or allergic. You are responsible for your health).
Cunningham’s Magical Sampler is a stellar collection of magical writings from one of the most respected Wiccan Authors of our time. Scott Cunningham became a pivotal force in the Wiccan community as an Author and teacher. He was one of the key figures in pushing Wicca and Witchcraft into the mainstream.
As you read through the Magical Sampler you are reading through Cunningham’s personal collection of articles and notes. This collection of information is filled with diverse ideas and topics, from history, to folklore, to herbology and spells. The information is both practical and intermediate, giving everyone something to muse on.
Cunningham always writes in a way that makes you feel like he is right there, gently instructing you with each step. Nothing about this text is hard to follow, but on every page is a new layer and facet of magical information. This is truly a treasure for anyone interested in Wicca and Witchcraft.
This isn’t a book that you have to read from start to finish, it is a flexible treasury of information that you can thumb through, as you need. As you read through you get the impression that nothing within is hard-fast rule, but rather suggestions to add to your personal practice.
One thing that I found very fascinating about the text is how it acts almost as a historical account of Cunningham’s life and the time that he was living in. He explores spellcraft and technology and he talks extensively on the mystical identity of Hawaii. So much of his personality comes through, making the text much more relatable.
The book is laid out in five distinct sections: Personal Power and Growth, Instruction and Applied Magic, Herbs and Food, Nature and Earth Power, and Ancient Cultures and Lore. My favorite section is on herbs and foods because of the interesting exploration of “Shakespeare’s Herbal Code”.
The closing section called, “The Magic of Scott Cunningham”, by Donald Michael Kraig is extraordinary! Kraig gives wonderful accounts of Cunningham’s life and glimpses into his distinct personality.
Cunningham’s Magical Sampler is an incredible addition to any magical library and it is sure to be another Llewellyn classic! The book is scheduled for release on November 8th, you can order here and here.
