Hi all, I have been Wiccan for about four years now.I am self dedicated and self taught.I recently started seeing someone who is also wiccan but practices more than I myself do.I believe in wicca.I found peices of myself in the relegion.My question is...My brother practices wicca as do I and my gf...but they both beleive in magic..I so far have had no luck with it...Do the spells really work ? Am I missing the answers on my own ? Does my brother really see faires ? I guess I am really confused.I do believe in ghosts so I know he may see faires.I just want to know why I can't open that part of my mind? Can you help ? Alora1977

Merry Meet, Alora I have had much success with magick. However I was lucky and had a great teacher. The way to make magick work is to focus with a clear will. All the steps most spells have are too help you develop that focus. Sometimes it has helped people I have trained to explain magick as a very clear directed prayer to the universe. In sientific terms you're brain produces electric pulses when you have a thought. If you can train these thoughts to be very strong and clear the laws of harmonics can then be applied. ( That is best explained by going into a piano store and hitting a key. If you listen you can hear the keys of near by piano's also tuning.) That is why so many Wiccan's feel it is important to keep your energy, thoughts, and maigick clear of negative thought. You don't want to strike a negative key in the universe and have it directed at you.Also I feel that is why so many young new wiccan's are temped to do curse's. For most people it is easier to have a clear directed thought about being angry at one person. They see that the curse or hex worked and they feel powerful. I am very glad you have avoided this trap. I would suggest simple candle magick with simple goals. It can take a while but when that switch in your brain finally turns it a wonderful thing. Also sometimes having a group to help you can be both good and bad. Perhaps a class at your local Mystic shop (most are listed in the phone book) would be helpfull. Also I have a magick word that a very evolved teacher shared with me in my early years. I invoke it often.*** Bullshyt***. Yes it's a magick word and if you start feeling that someone is feeding you a load use it. It will free you from allkinds of nonsense. In any of the mystic art you will hear people claim all kinds of things. Most of the time that magick word will keep you from being drug into well all kinds of things. A basic common sense thing is if someone has so much controll over matter as to change the nature of an object they are so evolved that being here on this planet in this plane of life would be pointless. As for faeries their out there. A word of advice though if you can see the faery they can see you. Do some reasearch on faery lore they can be a very pesky even dangerous group of sprites. Been to Ireland I know.Faeries and angels should never be mixed up in nature. Also what is darn tooning funny to a faery is a lot less funny to a human. I also think you may be well served to point a very directed question to Minerva though I am sure she will answer this. I have known a lot of wiccan's and she is one of the smartest I have seen. Blessed Be
