Although there are many books on how to cast a circle, each version will require tools or Paraphernalia to complete the task. I often feel that the way many books describe casting a circle can be off putting to the beginner or the lone practitioner. The fact of the matter is that you donít need any special powers or tools. To be able to create a circle on the fly is a very handy skill to have. There are many times where you just donít have the time or are in the correct circumstance to create a full circle. Using your hands or a finger to replace the Athame or Wand is one of the most simple ways of casting a circle with out any tools. The method i am going explain requires no movement and can be preformed in any situation including in the middle of a shopping centre. Casting a circle in this manor can be done without the knowledge of anyone and is very useful to sheild against unwanted energies. Once you have mastered this technique you can cast a circle at a moments notice. Firstly you will need to find your centre this is normal around the solar plexus chakra although it will take some practice to locate your personal centre. Start by rhythmic breathing (in through nose the out from mouth). Once you are aware of your centre remember it you will need to recall it when ever you cast a circle.

With Earth we have direct each and every day we walk on earth eat plants from the earth animals that have feed on the earth but we really realise that the connect we have with earth and often pay little attention to it in our daily life we all might work hard to save the planet but that not connecting to it we distance ourselves from earth becoming care takers rather than living in unity with it. Earth comes in many forms the mountains, metals, crystals the stars and planets it is the stabilising factor that supports life as well as forming it. Our bones are the earth and so our connection is also a personal one. The focus of Earth is to bring stability and balance and structure to our lives and our environment. For those living a magickal life must understand that on the surface earth is a solid hard substance that changes in time and this change comes as a result of the other elements both spiritually and practically it is easier to see the beauty of the earth than it is to connect to it. Earth is the arena where
Crystals and gemstones have been valued for centuries for their beauty and also for their healing powers. It is believed that the ancient Egyptians were advanced crystal healers.

Amazingly colour has always fascinated me, not only in magical purposes, but also in design, psychology and science. So what is colour? Well in the most scientific answer I can give, colour is the by-product of the spectrum of light, and is reflected or absorbed and is received by the human eye and processed by the brain. The colour spectrum itself consists of visible light, which can be seen by the human eye and light frequencies that are out of the range of human vision this spectrum, ranging from infrared through to ultraviolet and consisting of seven other base colours which are red, orange, yellow, green, cyan, blue, violet, these seven colours are seeing rainbows, the colours of the seven chakras and contain the three primary colours, from which all colours are made. There are also non-colours. These are the sense and presence of colour, whites being the presence of colour and is created when the three primary colours are equal balance and we have black. The absence of colour. This is no colour or light waves are reflected or absorbed. Within Magic‘s and psychology and science. It is widely accepted that colour has an energy that can affect moods or environments, and we often attributed correspondences to these colours. When colours are used in magic. We attempt to harness the energies that correspond to our needs. We assign colour correspondences to candles symbols closed deities planets Zodiac signs.

Elemental magicks are untameable and do not require any skills or knowledge to perform, but knowledge is required to prevent accidents. With fire we seem to have less of a physical connection as we do with air but we have to see fire as less that a flame itís the spark of life it every electron and proton in every cell it the electrical energy that sparks across the brain and through the body creating movement it also dew deep inside us like a volcano waiting to erupt with passion or hate. The focus of fire energies dwell deep inside unlike air fire has to build and explode and burn a path to it goal, there is less of a chance to accidentally release fire magicks but when you do they are very powerful and in most cases are very negative or result in negative outcomes. The major problem with fire is that it can smoulder and then explode with out warning. For those living a magickal life it is important to learn to understand their own fire energy we must learn to control our own fires you can never master fire but you can learn to control it. You need to explores your fires those inner ranges and passions in safe out lets self

It is also a good idea to name the crystal ball and give it a purpose this will help you make a personal connection. Once your ready to use your crystal ball place the ball on a stand or black cloth and place your hands either side of the crystal ball. Charge the ball with energy allowing the energy to flow from you through the crystal ball and returning to yourself creating a loop of energy.

In crystal healing, we use crystals or gemstones for the healing purpose. These crystals are used for either healing any kind of pain in our body or even making our body pure from various impurities. There are many particular regions in our body which is known as “chakras”, the crystal healing is done by keeping the crystals on these chakras of our body. There are in all 7 chakras in our body where the crystals are placed for the healing purpose.
Karma as permeated it self in today modern society and in neo paganism as the idea that our actions have results positive and negative allowing us to receive reward or punishment depending on the out come of our actions but karma is much more than that. Karma is not a faith it is a concept an ideal from India it is based on the idea that we are eternal souls seeking perfection and understanding so we can in a sense ascend to a higher stage spiritually. Unlike some beliefs where you born then die and are judge on your actions either receiving paradise or pain. Karma allows you to experience many lives and experiences clocking up negative and positive points along the way. I was once taught that only when we leave this physical form, we regain all the information we have gained over our many lifeís and we view our actions and choose to return (be reborn) to balance our good and bad deeds, we choose the family we are born into, the area and circumstances we belief that will be conducive to help us undo the negative Karma we collected in our last life(s) and once we become physical again through birth we lose all knowledge of why we are here what we came to learn and as humans we blunder through this life making more mistakes adding more bad karma to our souls. Through meditation and spiritual practice we can access our higher self and seek guidance from within about what choice
The energy vampire is someone who draws psychic or spiritual energy from another life force with out replacing it with like energy. Over the years I have found that there seem to be 3 may be 4 types of energy vampire. The first and most common type of energy vampire in what I like to call the immature energy vampire, the second is the controller energy vampire and the third is a feeder and if there is a forth kind it seems to be a hybrid of these three. The immature energy vampire is completely oblivious that they are feeding off of your energy in this category you will find children, those suffering illness (physical and mental), the Star (a person how is a diva who needs people to praise him or her) and the party animal (always on the go the one that is still raving a 4am while everyone else is lagging). The immature energy vampires are not bad (in the sense of good and bad) although they are demanding they need you to offer your energy before they can start to draw off your energy. The problem is the immature likes energy and is really not bothered if the energy is negative or positive just as long has they have your attention. The good thing is that these vampires will often share your energy and return some back. Since the goal of this vampire is to charge himself or herself up, they often have an abundance of excess energy, which they use
