    ~Spell Casting~
    Step 1: Before starting any spells, know exactly what you want. Focus and confidence are important while spell casting.
    Step 2: Find a place in your home where you will perform your magick undisturbed. An altar to place candles and other items will be needed. You can use an end table as an altar or something similar.
    Step 3: There is a secret to spell casting and no spell will work unless you know it. You must not only believe that your spell will work but you must feel like it already has worked. Even after you work your magic, you must carry that feeling around with you always. If you are trying to attract a partner, first imagine how you would feel when you meet your new love. Once you have that feeling, keep it with you. That is the key to successful spell casting.
    Step 4: There are many things which will contribute to a success or failure of a spell. Any of the following, or a combination of the following, can help you in your spell casting.
    The Moon phase: The proper Moon phase is one of the keys to success in Spell casting. Just as a farmer may plant his seeds or how fish spawn on the full moon. During the full moon, a full moon can help you with your spells, but some spells work better on other phases of the moon. Selecting the right moon phase is sometimes easier than others. There are 4 phases of the moon and each phase lasts for 7 days. For example many people think the 'Full Moon' phases are only one night, but they are wrong, the 'Full Moon' is actually the 3 days before, the day of, and the 3 days after the date where the moon is the fullest. The following are the phases:
    * New Moon – During this phase spells which get rid of things will have the best success rates.
    * Waxing Moon – During this phase spells which gain things (money, hair, etc) will be at their peak.
    * Full Moon – All magic is much more powerful on the night of the full moon, during this phase spells which deal with power and magical energies will be at their strongest.
    * Waning Moon – During this phase spells which deal with the doing away of destruction of things will work best.
    The proper materials and supplies: You must use the correct ingredients. For example do not use a green candle in a love spell, use a red one. Keep the green candle for money spells. Magical ingredients also have a greater effect when they have already had a charmed spell placed on them.
    The mental condition of the Practitioner: When casting a spell you must be focused on the spell, the target, and the emotions of the spell. When casting a love spell you must have love in your heart, not hatred. Likewise when casting a hex you must have hatred for the person you are casting the spell on. If you are in a happy mood an evil spell will not work. (By the way, I do not recommend these types of spells at all!)You must also believe completely in the spell and the power of magic.
    The experience of the Practitioner: The more experience you have with magic, the greater the effect of the spell you will cast. If all you do is cast a spell once a month you will not be able to cast powerful spells. You must cast many spells and become familiar with the feel of magic before you are able to control it fully. Too often people get frustrated after only casting one or two spells and give up on magic. Usually it will take a few times for a spell to work successfully for new spell casters. This will quickly vanish though, once you have cast a single spell correctly, casting other spells becomes easier.
    The Magical Energy built up by the Practitioner: There are many spells and rituals which will build up your magical energy and power. It is best to practice magic by casting this type of spell. This way you get more experience, but at the same time you are building your magical powers. The more magical energy you have built up, the more powerful your spells will be, this is very important when casting spells against others who also have built up their magical powers.
    Your belief in the magic you are working: You must believe in the spell you are casting. If you do not believe, the spell cannot possibly work. Magic is not a game or a toy to play with. You must commit yourself to magic and the powers of it when casting spells.
    The will of the Universe: No matter how good your ingredients are, how much power you have, you cannot change the will of the universe.
    The right Spell: Obviously, if a spell doesn't work for you it may be the wrong spell, or it may be the right spell but any of the above other things like the moon phase, your mood, the ingredients or something may be off. Keep a notebook of all the spells you have cast, when and where you got the ingredients. This way you will know which spells work best for you.

    In his 16th century alchemical work 'Liber de Nymphis, sylphis, pygmaeis et salamandris et de caeteris spiritibus', Paracelsus identified mythological beings as belonging to one of the Four Elements. This book was first printed in 1566 after Paracelsus' death.
    The Paracelsian concept of Elementals draws from several much older traditions in mythology and religion.
    In contemporary times there are those of us who study and practice rituals to invoke Elementals. By studying the old literature available to us, we can better understand the nature of the Elementals.
    An Elemental is a mythological being first appearing in the alchemical works of Paracelsus in the 16th century.

    The following is his archetypal Spirit for each of the Four Elementals:

    Earth (solid) Gnome, Spirit of Earth
    Water (liquid) Undine (also known as a nymph or mermaid), Spirit of Water
    Wind (gas) Sylph, Spirit of Wind (also known as Spirit of Air)
    Fire (heat) Salamander, Spirit of Fire
    Aether (quintessence) was not assigned an Elemental.

    Known as the Zone of Silence, it is a place where radio waves barely permeate the air. Located between the states of Chihuaua, Coahuila, Durango & 400 miles from U.S. Border, something in the area makes it almost impossible to receive radio, television, cell or any other sound related transmissions. The exact cause of this phenomenon has not been fully explained to date, with many theories abounding that the area has been heavily influenced by extra-terrestrial & other paranormal activities.

    Anasazi People

    Ancient Pueblo People, or Ancestral Puebloans, is a preferred term for the cultural group of people often known as Anasazi who are the ancestors of the modern Pueblo peoples. The ancestral Puebloans were a prehistoric Native American civilization centered around the present-day Four Corners area of the Southwest United States.

    Archaeologists debate when a distinct culture emerged, but the current consensus, based on terminology defined by the Pecos Classification, suggests their emergence around 1200 B.C., the Basketmaker II Era.

    They inhabited the area that is present-day Arizona, Colorado, Utah and New Mexico, called the Four Corners. They are known for mud-brick villages located along edges of canyons or atop mesas. The civilization is perhaps best-known for the jakal, adobe and sandstone dwellings that they built along cliff walls, particularly during the Pueblo II and Pueblo III eras.

    The best-preserved examples of those dwellings are in parks such as Chaco Culture National Historical Park, Mesa Verde National Park, Hovenweep National Monument, Bandelier National Monument, and Canyon de Chelly National Monument. These villages, called pueblos by Mexican settlers, were often only accessible by rope or through rock climbing.

    Mesa Verdi was home to the Anasazi Indians for more than 1,000 years. The people that first built their houses here at the time of the Roman Empire farmed the mesas, plateaus, river bottoms, and canyons. They created a thriving, populous civilization that eventually raised towers and built hundred-room cities in the cliffs and caves of Mesa Verde. The Cliff Palace is the largest cliff dwelling in North America. The structure built by the Ancient Pueblo Peoples is located in Mesa Verde National Park in their former homeland region. The cliff dwelling and park are in the southwestern corner of Colorado, in the Southwestern United States.

    The typical Anasazi village consisted of buildings housing about 100 men, women and children. Dating back to 700 A.D., shaped, closely fitting stone or adobe (bricks made of sand, clay and straw) masonry formed complex apartment structures rising atop mesas (flat high grounds) or inside natural caves at the base of canyons. The ground-floor apartments were grain storage units while ladders allowed access to the different 10-by-20-foot living compartments above. Crops grown by the villages included maize (corn), gourds, squash, beans and cotton. Different phases of the culture produced finely made baskets and beautifully designed pottery.

    Based on current day Pueblo religious practices, archeologists think of the Anasazi kivas (Hopi language for "old house") as sacred chambers for ceremonies. In the kachina cult (ancestral spirits who bring rain), the Anasazi worshiped the sun, fire and serpents for fertility and agricultural productivity. The kiva is a subterranean room reached by ladder through an opening in the roof. The esoteric symbolism of the hole refers to a man leaving the womb of the earth. These sacred places were always separate from the living quarters, with an average of two kivas per village.

    This is a culture who came and went, leaving behind stone markers and petroglyphs that suggest that they were visited by – and connected to – Star People, or ancient aliens much like other ancient civilizations.

    Archeological evidence suggests that the Moab area and surrounding country was inhabited by the Anasazi (in Navajo language, the ancient ones). The present town of Moab sits on the ruins of pueblo farming communities dating from the 11th and 12th centuries. These Anasazi Indians mysteriously vacated the Four Corners area around 1300 AD, leaving ruins of their homes scattered throughout the area. The villages were never inhabited again. They were "burned, possibly by the inhabitants, shortly before abandonment.

    Could they have been driven out by nomadic tribes, such as Utes or Navajos? There is no direct evidence that either group, or any other like them, was in the area that early. There is mounting evidence, however, that the Numic-speaking peoples, of whom the Utes and Paiutes are part, had spread northwestward out of southwestern Nevada and were in contact with the Pueblo-like peoples of western Utah by A.D. 1200. It is certainly possible that they were in San Juan County shortly after that. Ute and Paiute sites are very difficult to distinguish from Anasazi campsites, and we may not be recognizing them.

    Navajos were in northwestern New Mexico by 1500, but we do not know where they were before that. Perhaps the answer to the Anasazis' departure from Utah lies in a combination of the bad-climate and the arriving-nomads theories.

    The Ancestral Puebloans migrated from their ancient homeland for several complex reasons. These may include pressure from Numic-speaking peoples moving onto the Colorado Plateau as well as climate change which resulted in agricultural failures.

    Confirming evidence for climatic change in North America is found in excavations of western regions in the Mississippi Valley between A.D. 1150 and 1350 which show long lasting patterns of warmer, wetter winters and cooler, dryer summers.

    Most modern Pueblo peoples (whether Keresans, Hopi, or Tanoans) and historians like James W. Loewen, in his book Lies Across America, assert these people did not "vanish," as is commonly portrayed, but merged into the various pueblo peoples whose descendants still live in Arizona and New Mexico.

    Many modern Pueblo tribes trace their lineage from settlements in the Anasazi area and areas inhabited by their cultural neighbors, the Mogollon. For example, the San Ildefonso Pueblo people believe that their ancestors lived in both the Mesa Verde area and the current Bandelier.

    The term "Anasazi" was established in archaeological terminology through the Pecos Classification system in 1927. Archaeologist Linda Cordell discussed the word's etymology and use:

    "The name "Anasazi" has come to mean "ancient people," "ancient ones", although the word itself is Navajo, meaning "enemy ancestors." It is unfortunate that a non-Pueblo word has come to stand for a tradition that is certainly ancestral Pueblo.

    The term was first applied to ruins of the Mesa Verde by Richard Wetherill, a rancher and trader who, in 1888-1889, was the first Anglo-American to explore the sites in that area. Wetherill knew and worked with Navajos and understood what the word meant.

    The name was further sanctioned in archaeology when it was adopted by Alfred V. Kidder, the acknowledged dean of Southwestern Archaeology. Kidder felt that is was less cumbersome than a more technical term he might have used. Subsequently some archaeologists who would try to change the term have worried that because the Pueblos speak different languages, there are different words for "ancestor," and using one might be offensive to people speaking other languages.

    Some modern Pueblo peoples object to the use of the term Anasazi, although there is still controversy among them on a native alternative. The modern Hopi use the word "Hisatsinom" in preference to Anasazi. However, Navajo Nation Historic Preservation Department (NNHPD) spokeman Ronald Maldonado has indicated the Navajo do not favor use of the term "Ancestral Puebloan." In fact, reports submitted for review by NNHPD are rejected if they include use of the term.

    Archeologists are not sure why these ancient people deserted the cliff dwellings by the end of the thirteenth century. Some experts think that they ran from attacks from marauding groups of native peoples. Others believe that overuse of the land for agriculture, combined with a long drought, drove the people away.
