Dark spirits, light spirits, red ones, and grey. Why does shit happen, and what do you say? I don’t know if you’ve experienced this, but …
Long, long ago, in a land far, far away, I was trained in a Coven. Most of my readers know that already, right? The fact is: I love Covens. There’s a special something that working in a Coven – an actual one, that is more fam than your actual blood kin – brings to the table. Call it “extra oomph,” if you want. Or attribute it to being more social and spiritual, than religious. Whatever the case, I like it better than always working as a Solitary.
There is no such thing as a permanent banishing technique. At least, not where spirits are concerned. People? Yes, people I can get rid of in a heartbeat – just pretend to be really clingy and needy. They’ll go away, and then you can get on with living your life. But that’s not the point of this post. LOL
The other day (actually, last Tuesday), I was in the mood for a bit of magic. I had a goal to work on, and for the spellcraft I was brainstorming, a key would’ve been perfect. I love the look and feel of old skeleton keys. So I went on a hunt in the basement – I could’ve sworn I had one back in the early 2000’s that I stashed for safekeeping. (Random tip: if you want to banish something from your life forever, put it in a “safe place” so you’ll never forget. You’re guaranteed to forget. LOL)
How do you deal with spirit communication in general, and especially with gods and goddesses? I tend not to treat spirits of any kind, most especially goddesses and gods, as figments of imagination, or facets of my own psyche. For me, they are external entities, and they are very real spirit beings. Since my personal Craft practice is centered a lot around working with Deity, I tend to give communications from them a good amount of credit. Deity communication is important to me. I operate by receiving blocks of knowledge.
