This Ostara I’ve prepared an ointment for myself (face and hands), from coconut oil (healing energy), rice oil (abundance), olive oil (healing and connection to the Divine) and turmeric (rising vibration, chakras opening, enlightenment). I also brought snow for one of my altars and consecrated my Ouija board and runes. I blessed the land with an offering of corn, herbs and olive oil. I only hope corn will sprout and will be good for boil in August. Few weeks ago I ordered a pendant with SOL rune worked in silver. The rune was made by Foxy Chaos, a practicioner from Ukraine and was sent to me around Imbolc. In the little box sent by Foxy Chaos I’ve found an entire spell woven for me – a small bag embroiled with Algiz rune, for protection, a bottle with Baltic amber, two drawings by Foxy, some dried lavender and, of course, my silver SOL rune, one of the signs of my Divine Guardian. A letter from the Foxy Chaos was also in the package, wishing me all the best.May Ostara bless all new beginnings with abundance and light of the re-birthed Sun.
Magick is essentially dark as it draws its force from the fertility of Earth and the very unconscious of the witch, transmuted through free will into a demiurgic work. Magick is essentially dark as it aims to rearrange the dark matter who binds the Universe, in order to bent reality by the desire of the mage. Like any act of creation, magick is born in darkness and from it.
Lord Amon: There are two kinds of darkness – a healthy darkness, which usually is void and absolute black and a darkness that needs to heal. It doesn’t feel quite right, it might be scary or burdening and it sometimes may appear like being wet or swampy. When you’ll encounter this, you’ll just know. At such time you may fly to me and take some yellow dust of my pure light and sprinkle it over what needs to be healed. The light will fade, but it will also dry and close the wounds, transmuting everything into ripe ground with fresh smell and purified energy. You already know to fly, so there shouldn’t be a problem at all to come and take some of my light, Night Wings.

Here is a set of gazing exercises in order to develop and strength the ability to see the Unseen. Method was developed by a Czech practitioner who’s magical name is Akenu. He describes himself as ‘occult practitioner interested in both traditional grimoires and postmodern Magick’. I tried to contact Akenu, to get more information, but he didn’t answer my message. However the method described by him is effective and text is an interesting lecture as well. Personally I liked the part with ‘Staring inside the skull of your oponent will freak the hell out of them’. Gotta admit I also tried it and it worked. Special thanks to Ghede Vishrava, also an experienced practicioner of magick who brought this article on attention on an e-group.
What is The Gaze?
The Gaze is an ability of Magician to steadily observe (stare) any point in space.
It is also a premilinary ability for claivoyance, reality manipulation, shewstone scrying and literally any ability that needs eyes to work. As opposed to the “evil eye”, The Gaze is not intuition-based and has to be practiced to be gained. On the other hand The Gaze gives you complete control over the effects and also all of the benefits of Evil Eye.
The Gaze can be also used psychologically, staring inside the skull of your opponent during conversation will definitely freak out most people you will meet.
First Exercise: The Point
First of all we have to learn how to shift the staring point. Choose some picture or painting and place your thumb between the painting and your eyes. Now start switching your focus between the painting. Practice this for a week.
After you are done for the first part, here comes the fun. Start the exercise as before but after focusing on the thumb, put the thumb down and keep staring at the space where the thumb was. Keep doing that till you can hold the focus on a blank space for about 15 seconds. This exercise will also strengthen your eyes muscles and endurance.
Now you need to learn how to switch the focus without your thumb as a mediator, you should already know how the switch feels like, so just reproduce it. Later you can add more points and switch between them in seamless manner.
Second Exercise: The Endurance
You have to adapt your eyes to become stronger and able to be steady and opened for a longer period of time.You should have already developed an awareness of muscles controlling your eyes, now you just need to strengthen them. You can do so by practicing trataka or literally any kind of focal meditation. Remember, keep your eyes opened as long as you can. If your eyes start watering, pause the exercise, blink a couple of times and then close them for a couple of seconds, then you can continue in the exercise.
Third Exercise: The Waking Life
Learn to hold the blank space focus in every day life during walks, breaks, lunch, conversation, etc. Don’t do so if you need to use your eyes for safety purposes (crossing the road, driving the car, etc). Soon you will notice that the blank space is not really blank and your clairvoyance will start developing.
The energy of water changes three times in a normal day:
- at midnight
- at dawn
- at Moon rise (in case Moon rises during the daytime, there is no shift in the water’s energy)
At these times water purifies, clears its energy so it holds healing and magic properties. Water should be collected in a bottle clay or wood pot (not metal nor plastic).
At these particular moments waters recreate their energies, thus they are named unbegotten (or uncreated) waters.
The water got in the first moments after midnight before anything else get form the spring or well if used for divination. Water should be got in the night of Friday to Saturday, when Moon is crescent (waxing). Cover the bowl with a black clot and let sit for an hour in a dark place. When will be uncovered for scrying the water should only see the light of candle. Add few drops of AurumD6 (Gold tincture used in homeopathy) and few drops of Rose Essential Oil. Charge the water with you energy, visualizing a blue light emerging from your hands and going into the water. Then you can start scrying.
Or you can use the magic water as a transfer medium for self hypnosis and self influencing. You sit in front of the bowl with a candle lit and, while watching your reflection repeat the affirmations according to desired purpose. You can also write on the surface of water your desire, draw a sigil etc. After the desire is fulfilled water should be poured at a tree when Moon is waning.
The dew harvested from flowers just before dawn is said to make skin beautiful and smooth. As well is a strong protection against evil eye.
Water from a well in which mirrors the Moon, got a day or two before Full Moon is a very potent ingredient in love spells.
For health issues a good help is water got before dawn. Witch should fast in the day before and then they should go barefoot in the dewed grass and should not talk to anyone on their way not on the way of return. Water has to be got in a clay jug or in a glass jar and should be covered with a white cloth. Also witch should return from the well on other way then came and should never look back.
For diseases that cause loosing of body fluids (bleeding, urine, diarrhea, sweating etc) is very good water got from the place where three springs met. Water has to be got in the morning before dawn and in the evening right after dusk. A piece of bread made by the witch should be offered to the waters spirits.
For unknown ailments that nobody were able to cure one should bath in waters got from the mill wheel.
