Michael from the US asked how to make an altar.
Here's a simple 7 step method to make a real working energy magic altar and some tips on altar offerings and how to make sure your altar gets more powerful over time, rather than becoming ever more confused.
Why are people (old and young, from near and far) interested in magic? What do they find exciting and what are they looking to find in the study of magic? Here are some very personal answers for us to reflect upon and enjoy - and inspire us, too!
*There is a lot of magic in this article - energy, in other words. Just reading it makes me tingle, every time. Well worth seeing/reading/doing (again, and again).
Folk in magic and especially beginners tend to obsess about following the tradition of doing certain types of work at certain beneficial times of the various natural cycles within which we exist. Unlike the more complex astrological, moon, year or day/month cycles, sun phases are actually far more basic, more powerful, and sun phases are easy to remember and very clearly natural.
A simple but effective luck spell, an old gypsy spell that may have a thing or two to do with the reknown "luck of the Irish."
You don't need a wand or any paraphenalia, all you need is a penny for luck - and a little bit of magic :-)
Magic Color Meanings Of White, Yellow, Orange, Red, Purple, Blue, Green, Turquoise to help you answer the question of which color candle you need for which kind of spell, or which color a ribbon should be, or a ceremonial robe, or the flowers you add to a magic potion ... and then some, of course ...
Here is a full energy magic color chart with the meanings of the colors, color exercises and more.
There are many things that were known only about a hundred years ago that have become lost, and the secret language of the flowers is one of them. In days gone by it was held an important part of women's education to know home remedies, about the qualities of plants and this had a large metaphysical component.
Just knowing that there is a secret language of flowers changes many things; and of course has many applications in practical as well as esoteric magic and energy magic.
When I was but a squirt in Germany, it was quite common on New Year's eve to enjoy the good ritual of melting tin in a ladle over an open fire and then dropping the liquid metal into a bucket of cold water. You would then fish it out and divine the year ahead by the shape the tin has taken. These tin divination pieces were also held to be good luck charms for the whole year and I knew people who collected them; others melted them down and used them again; others still threw them into a river or the sea as a part of the ritual.

How does it apply, for example, to a love attraction ritual ( = to attract love in my life)?
Time and time again when I'm asked for a spell for this and that I end up telling the person, "You don't need to do a magic spell for this, you need to do some EFT instead!" EFT or Emotional Freedom Techniques is a baby-simple but highly effective self help treatment form to make changes to your energy body, and that changes the way you feel as well as the way you think.
For people who work in the blessed yet often perplexing realms of magic, EFT is extremely useful to overcome fears, limitations, anxiety, and generally speaking set a person free to do much, much more powerful magic all around.
An XTRA Magic subscriber wrote and asked for a spell to put on a turtle pendant necklace they had bought for a friend of theirs who was getting persecuted by bullies.
I immediately thought that was a brilliant choice as "Father Turtle" from the animal kingdom is a powerful guardian for protection, so I wrote a spell to go with it. This can be a simple spell or extended into a full magic ritual.

When people think in terms of a "magic book" - do they think of it as a book that contains instructions about magic, a collection of magic spells, magic wisdom, secrets of the ages ...
... or could it be that the book itself is magic?
If you have ever felt that a book was more than the words it contained, that there was something "beyond the words" then I've got just the thing for you - a free teleclass on "the magic of the book".
To successfully remove curses and hexes by yourself isn't as difficult as it may seem.
You need two things - one force to "draw out" the curses and hexes, and another acting to "push out" these foreign energy viruses that cause disturbances and misfortune, like the proverbial thorn in our side.
Finally, you need to heal the damage the curse or hex has caused you.
Here is a simple old fashioned gypsy spell to remove curses and hexes by yourself.

Dear StarFields, I've been taught to go into an alpha state prior to doing magic, spells, rituals etc.
But I find I get very sleepy and drowsy. How can I raise more power for magic?
A good, ongoing, working relationship with your guardian angel or guardian spirit is OF THE ESSENCE if you want help, work magic, or need powerful protection.
Magic names are very important in magic, but they also crop up in the form of internet nicks and aliases.
Here is what you need to know about magic names and what to do to find yours.
A really interesting and important part of magic revolves around magic guardians for protection of the home. A first choice for as long as humanity has been around is to use statues of animals to be magic guardians.
Of course, not every animal statue is magic, and not every magic statue is a magic guardian. Here's a report on a psychometry experience and some ideas of how to find and strengthen magic guardians of your own.
