Witches are Sensitives. Unless we are consciously prepared to block people's energy, we automatically pick up the vibration of our surroundings. Sadly, many people in this world carry negativity, hatred, and anxiety.
After spending time with groups of people (such as in concerts, shopping malls or at clubs) do you feel physically ill? Do you feel it takes time to energetically wash away the feeling? After having to be out in social situations for any length of time, do you feel the need to be alone for several days?
These are all symptoms of a sensitive (and often damaged) energetic barrier. As a result, we need to consciously develop and strengthen our energetic barrier and inner sacred power. And to be honest with you, this will likely be a lifelong practice in one way or another. Therefore, if possible, I recommend this ritual to be performed after every Dark Moon.
As we grow and evolve, we may become less sensitive to some stimulants (angst of big cities, bitter people, etc.) and more susceptible to others. This poses a challenge, as your energetic barrier must keep up with your evolvement and environment. Otherwise, you will feel drained and helpless as you absorb the energies of your surroundings
Black Walnut Shell Powder has been used for over 300 years (that we know of) in Eastern European Witchcraft. This multi-purpose powder is used for a variety of applications and is typically utilized by mixing with water, salt or honey. Traditionally, it is boiled in a cauldron with water and Agrimony Powder and used as a bathing rinse to banish energetic attachments, end bad luck and heal a broken heart.
Black Walnut Water Recipe:
We recommend adding 2 teaspoons of the Organic Black Walnut Shell Powder to 1 gallon of water. Bring to a boil, then allow to simmer until the water has been reduced by half. Add 1 teaspoon of Agrimony Powder and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. At this point you may add 1/4 cup of sea salt - this step is optional but is highly recommended. Allow to cool to room temperature.
When needing to summon ferocious bravery and fearless determination, use this Viking Courage Ritual to overcome inhibition and personal limitations.

Such as leaving a dysfunctional relationship, quitting a job to pursue your own business, standing up for justice or embarking on a new life path.
Inspired by my occult studies in Iceland, this Old World Witchcraft adapted ritual utilizes Old Norse sigils for bravery. This is an excellent ritual to perform on a Full Moon and, if desired, can easily be done in a celebratory fashion with a trusted fellow Witch friend.
Old World Witchcraft is more than a practice. It's the Witch, the Earth and the Energy. Magick in its purest, most elemental form. It allows total freedom of magickal expression and limitless choices. It is the shortest, most intense, and direct route to understanding your own power.
Occasionally, witches and spiritualists from the so-called "White Light" path like to label and criticize others decisions or life choices. They argue that manipulative - or what they refer to as 'black magick' - is wrong. Hint: the Law of 3 is an entirely made up concept. It it nothing more than 1950's paganism, propagated by miserable new age books.
Do you think energetic or emotional manipulation in black magick? All magick, all physical action, and the very act of breathing is in itself manipulation. You manipulate energy, you manipulate air, you physically manipulate the real-world experience around you -- and that's true even without magick!
Cursing and healing. Left hand path and right hand path. Black and white. Desiring and repelling. They are all part of the same circle. All interlocking forms of spiritual, magickal and transformational work. Human energies in the spiritual, coming into the material world through perfectly natural means.
How do you know if you're cursed? On a daily basis, we receive the "Am I cursed?" question. I want to assure you that genuine curses are extremely rare. Simply put, very few practicing Witches have the skill and energetic endurance to go through such a tiring ritual! Curses aren't fun, nor are they easy.
But what if you're experiencing unpleasant things you can't explain? Sure, one may believe they are experiencing just a streak of bad luck -- but if on the rare occasion the streak is unusually long or persistent, here are the universal signs of someone (or something!) working against you.
Call it being cursed, jinxed, goofered, hexed, crossed -- it doesn't matter, the symptoms are always the same. The symptoms of being on the receiving end of a curse tend to fall into three different categories: Psychological, Anatomical, and External.
Like any good demonologist or occultist will tell you, the easiest path of destructive entry for any spirit or energy is through your mind.
The spirits or energies set to cause harm may cause the following mental symptoms to occur:
Nightmares: As our conscious mind rests our subconscious mind processes and plays out the inner dialogue of the psyche. This is the time for the curse to be most active, as our watchful guard is down and we cannot consciously process or control our experience. Do not be alarmed when you encounter occasional nightmares - those are perfectly natural. The persistent nightmares carrying the same theme or subject matter are the ones to cause concern. Consistent night terrors, all generally carrying the same theme, typically indicate early stages of a curse that is about to plague your life.
Commitment Ritual for growing a relationship, solidifying commitment, or to receive a marriage proposal. Ideal for relationships where fidelity is not a concern, but stagnation and indecisiveness is a problem.
