Is Witchcraft Real? How Magick Works ~ The White Witch Parlour

Magickal Creations Available Here!

There is something to be said about the power that we all hold within us, something so deep and so strong that there are people in the world that try to take that from us, make us fear it or completely forget it. We are all beings of light, made up of energy & vibrations.  Some of us have lead difficult lives and therefore vibrate at lower vibrations than someone who has lead a life full of love and abundance.  Luckily, if you are one of these people stuck in a rut, YOU have the power to change it.  You are a magickal person with the power of thought, a mind that can unleash beautiful projections to the world around you.  Still not convinced?    Well, this is the beauty of a Witch. Someone who is aware of their power and use it to their fullest potential to help others, create strong loving vibrations with those they encounter & help change the world for the better.  Yes it is true, some do use this knowledge to gain physical power over others and create fear & negativity, however there cannot be light without darkness.  The most amazing part of it it all is that you do not have to be a ‘Witch’ or ‘Spiritual Guru’ to possess these magickal qualities.  They are already within you!  That’s right! I bet the phrase “be careful what you wish for,” is really starting to make a whole lot of sense now.  Everything around you at this moment, physically or emotionally, was created and attracted by YOU. Happiness, anger, rich or poor it is all a projection into the physical three dimensional realm from the thoughts you have had.  You happen to be a part of the universe as well, a thought which also manifested into you and now living an experience through your eyes.  Start working on becoming self aware of your thoughts, words & actions, because they really do mean something.  This is the basic knowledge of magick & how it works.

By working with your conscious or subconscious mind you can begin to manifest any desire, new car, better relationships, better health, happiness, successful career, etc.  The key is Gratitude & trusting in the universe. Often this is the hardest part for many people; they begin to realize that they have to now “un-learn” everything that they’ve ever learned & in a sense start all over.  The good news however, is that once you obtain this knowledge and really grasp it, you are able to run with it and things in your life will begin to turn around quite quickly.

When working a spell and using physical tools, candles, chants or prayers you are physically putting all your thoughts and energy into this desire.  Once you complete your spell, thought or prayer you release it to the universe and let it work it’s magick. This is the power of prayer and unity in groups.  When large groups of people get together to pray for a loved one and their recovery, time after time these people make miraculous recoveries, often written off as a miracle or the work of the heavens, we forget to credit ourselves for contributing to these beautiful changes. The power of thought is a magnificent thing!

Every time you grow closer to a goal and take notice, be grateful for that moment as well as the blessings that are also already on their way. Magick, like everything else starts with a thought, followed by an action and completed with gratitude.  To live in love & light can absolutely change your life. Magick and synchronicity are around you on a daily basis, but until you open you eyes to it, you will most likely never notice it.  Magick only works for you when you believe in it & allow it to. Much like a talisman worn for protection or abundance; it takes the wearer’s belief in the item to work.  Open you mind to all the possibilities that can be yours!

In Love & Light,

10 Ways to Celebrate Mabon & The Autumn Equinox ~ The White Witch Parlour

The Autumn Equinox is once again upon us & it is a time to celebrate the balance between Light & Dark. Also known as Mabon or The Witch’s Thanksgiving, It generally falls between September 21st – 23rd in the Northern Hemisphere,  marking the middle of the Harvest Season. We can use this time of the changing season to finish up old projects & really get back in touch with who we are, as well as come back to the seeds we once planted for who we want to become, creating plans for your future. the scene of death creeping in serves as a reminder from nature that all things do & must come to an end, so you can also use this season to reinvent yourself. The energy during this time is high & can be drawn to enhance your magick & manifestations. It can also be used to simply give thanks for all of the blessings that have found way to you this year, putting positive vibes & heartfelt gratitude out into the universe, so it may find way to you again the following year. Because this is a time of abundant energy & embracing the change in the cycle of life, you may find yourself inspired in many ways to honor this Autumn Equinox by doing something new.
So here are a few ways you can celebrate Mabon, with loved one’s or by yourself:
1.  Start with counting your Blessings. Make a Blessings jar or bowl. Light a pink or red candle to represent love or green for gratitude from the heart & start writing 1 blessing per piece of paper. Give it a kiss and add it to your jar or bowl. The more your write, you begin to visually see how many blessings came to you so far this year, as they begin to pile up. When complete, you can keep this jar as a daily reminder of your blessings & continue to add to it whenever another blessing finds you.
2.  Go to Nature and gather some gifts. This is a great season for magickal arts & crafts by candlelight. Whether you are collecting specific items to make unique gifts for loved ones or simply allowing yourself to be drawn to the items around you, you’ll be amazed by your collections when you are done. These findings can also be used to decorate an altar to welcome the Autumn Equinox. Acorns, Leaves, Twigs & so much more can help set the stage for some Mabon enchantment.
3.  Enjoy the fruits of your labor & feast. As you take a moment to reflect on all the hard work & efforts you have put in so far this year, make sure you treat yourself to something special, Like an Autumn Equinox Picnic at Sunset. Gather with friends for a Outdoor Potluck Picnic to celebrate Mabon. As you feast on soups, breads & fruits, watch the Sun disappear into the darkness, helping you to better understand the balance within. As darkness comes, add some candles or a string of lights to illuminate your surroundings.
4.  Go Apple Picking. Something fun, family friendly & gets you outside enjoying that crisp autumn air! Locate and schedule a play date at a local apple orchard. Spend the evening picking apples & enjoying some hot apple cider. Save a few apples for a Divination spell, baking an enchanted apple pie or for preservation for the coming Winter. Give thanks to the Goddess Pomona, with each apple that you pick, for she is the Goddess of Fruit & Orchards, as well as a symbol of fertility & abundance.
5. Raise the Energy. Since this is a time of great Energy, it is also a great time to hold an ‘energy raising’ drum circle. Gather with like minded individuals and dance around a bonfire to rhythmic beats, in a powerful vibe of laughter, fun, gratitude & love. Let music enchant this sacred spiral dance with any kind of noise that individuals can bring. Shake, Rattle & clap the energy upwards towards a heightened vibration.
6. Honor the Darkness. Though Mabon is a time of balance, Darkness is starting to take over light. So with this we must make peace & accept things as they are. Without darkness we would not have light, this is the balance we must understand dwells within us as well. Find a good clear night to sit in the darkness wrapped in a warm blanket and meditate. Be still with nature & make peace with your own darkness.
7. Create an herbal blend. Drawing inspirations from the season, such as nutmeg, cinnamon, hazelnut, myrrh & frankincense, create a one of a kind herbal incense or potpourri to bless your home & hearth with the spirit of the season. Gift some to loved ones to say thank you for being such a blessing in your life.
8. De-clutter you life. As the trees begin to loose their leaves & shed the dead weight, you should too. Take a second look in your closets, cabinets & drawers & get rid of anything that holds you down & no longer serves you. Remove the extra clutter from your life that might have you stumbling through the darkness of Winter. Allow yourself to start fresh.
9. Since this is also known as the Witch’s thanksgiving, it is the perfect time to Give. After decluttering & downsizing, you can offer some of these items, such as clothing, blankets or furniture to local drives that help those in need. You can also participate in food drives or community service projects that allow you to give back.
10. Hold a ritual. Big or small, with others or Solitary, hold a special Mabon ceremony, to help set your intentions for this new season & help you shift into this new reality. Make sure you allow enough time to prepare, so you don’t feel a last minuet rush or panic & find a ceremony you feel drawn to perform. As you light each candle, give thanks to the universe, acknowledge the coming blessings, find the balance & make peace.
Mabon Blessings,

How to Awaken Your Psychic Abilities ~ The White Witch Parlour

Psychic Enhancing Potions & Candles Available Here!

No matter what you’ve heard, psychic abilities are something we are all born with. Yes it is true that some are born with more innate psychic abilities than others, much like those who are born naturally better at sports or music. Whatever the case, you have the power to tap into your psychic intuition by sharpening your “psychic tools.”. Much of the time it is our Ego & self awareness that is blocking out all the messages that are constantly flowing to us, so we are simply just ‘not listening,’ or paying attention to anything beyond the mundane schedules we have programmed ourselves to follow day in & day out.
Let’s start with understanding some of the different types of “Psychic,” many of which correspond to our physical senses. When tuned in, some will notice that they are able to clearly “Hear” messages from spirit, like whispers, distinct voices or simple words. This ability is known as ‘Caliraudiant.’ This form of Psychic awareness can often come easily to children, but can frighten them as well, so it often becomes ‘blocked out,’ as we get older, to keep us from the fear of an unknown voice taunting us. As adults we tend to open up to the capability, when we are tired and drifting to sleep or slightly intoxicated, because at this point in time our physical guard is down & we are open to receive.
Another form of Psychic awareness is ‘Clairempathy’ or ‘Clairsentience,’ this ability falls into a category for many adults who are also known as Empaths. Those who are able to strongly sense the vibes or energy of a space, whether good or bad. Often absorbing unwanted energy from other people or objects. Sometimes known as a strong intuitive feeling, someone with a the Clairsentient abilities can feel the energies of past, present or future, & can strongly pick up on the emotional state of another person without any signs or communication. Information via energies of a location or house can even bring someone to tears from unknown past traumas which may have happened there. Although this may seem frightening, if one is aware that they strongly resonate with this form of psychic awareness, things can be done in preparation to block or protect the individual from these unwanted energies.
A popular one such a ‘Clairvoyance,’ is the ability to physically or psychically “see”  things beyond this physical dimension, also know as ‘clear vision,’ on a spiritual level. Apparitions, images within the mind, aura of people, places or objects, & ‘mental videos,’ like a memory. When this ability becomes fine tuned & well developed, some psychics are able to completely ‘forsee the future,’ to give information to one as a warning or blessing.  Some clairvoyance can work in the form of dreams, where full scenes & messages are displayed to ‘the viewer.’
Clairscent is exactly what you guesses, a psychic ability through scent. Often a way for loved ones  who have passed to communicate to us without frightening us. They can leave a subtle scent of tobacco, Lavender, Roses or any other scent that their spirit knows who would remember them by. Their simple way of saying hello & that they are always with you. Amazingly the human nose can remember over 50,000 scents, each of which can instantly tie us to an old memory, bringing back that entire moment in time right before our very eyes.
Clairgustance is the ability of psychic taste, without placing anything in the mouth. Some will receive a familiar taste out of nowhere, reminding them of a loved one or memory that may point them in the right direction towards something they are seeking. Some detectives claim to get a intuitive taste of blood, drugs or certain chemicals, which help to point them in the right path of solving a case. Often those with this Clairgustance can use this ability to know when they are tuned into Ethereal realms & when it is a proper time to move forth on an enlightened meditation or spiritual practice.
Clairtangency is the ability to touch something tangible & receive information through it, such as a photo or piece of jewelry that holds the energy of an individual. Also by touching the walls of an old building or home, one with this ability can often pick up what feels like old memories, giving life to the phrase, ‘If these walls could talk.’ Every physical object holds some form of energy, which acts as a thumbprint to information, & when properly tuned in, one who holds this ability can easily unravel a story or message from an object. This ability will sometimes cause an individual to unknowingly turn away from purchasing used second-hand items or antiques, because of the energy that still clings to these items from their previous owners.
The list of the different psychic abilities can easily carry on, however I’d like to move onto, who you can unlock some of these hidden powers within you.
The first step is finding awareness to yourself and understanding what or  if any of the abilities  I listed above resonate with you. Take a moment to reflect, go back further to your younger years, maybe at some point you can recall the time which you began to block out some of these abilities.
Next understand patterns. Everything in this world is made up of a pattern, sacred patterns such a the Fibonacci Spiral & Flower of life, are literally embedded into our DNA coding. We are creatures of habit, so when it comes to ‘predicting the future,’ we are technically just becoming more aware of patterns.  For example, if you feel you are slipping into a depression, reflect on why & what previous happenings lead you to this emotional state. Perhaps they are closely related to patterns before that got you here. … Awaken to the bigger picture & Pay attention.
Be aware of what you eat & consume. Yes I discuss healthy eating often, because it is a crucial part of spiritual awakening on multiple levels. Health is wealth, if you do not have good health, you are susceptible to many forms of discomfort & pain. Energy levels drop, resulting in a cloudy aura & lower vibrational living. Coffee consumption in large doses weakens & calcifies the Pineal gland, also known as your third eye. Yes, you actually have a physical third eye that resides in your brain between the space of your eyebrows. When this glad is calcified & unhealthy, it tends to shrink in size & change in color, much like unhealthy lungs from the result of smoking. A smoker can still run a marathon, but odds are it will not be as easy as someone who went the healthy route. Work towards healing your body & decalcifying your third eye, this takes time, but all great things do.
If you were not born with a naturally abundant psychic ability, it may be a bit more challenging for you, but everything happens for a reason, & perhaps you were born with this challenge to help you push your spiritual growth & enlighten your soul for the purpose of better life fulfillment & lesson of gratitude. Whether the psychic ability comes natural to  you or not, use everyday to work a little bit on raising your vibrations & aligning to the energy of spirit. Use daily or weekly meditation to teach yourself how to silence the mind during troubled or chaotic times, allowing you to stay calm & again see the bigger picture when everyone else may be in a state of panic. Incorporate oils & incense to enhance your ability to align with the magick of scent. When you are in a place of peace, use a scent that you are drawn to, to come back to this vibration whenever you need.
Exercise your psychic awareness. instead of rushing into a persons home or business, take a moment to ‘feel’ the energy, what can you make of it? is it happy or sad? confirm your intuitions by striking up a conversation with the home or shop owner, let them tell you how they are doing. Did it match the energy you initially picked up on? Same with reading one’s aura, what color do they resonate with? Maybe someone you meet, vibrates at a striking blue color. Find out what they do for a living to get confirmation, if they turnout to be a business man fully expressing themselves or a creative artist, then your psychic awareness was spot on.
You can always collaborate with a friend who is also seeking to advance upon their own psychic abilities. Do game exercises such as ‘intuitively’ guessing what is in a box. Sense a color, theme or shape. If you get just one aspect correct, your intuition is strengthening. Do not ‘push’ you psychic awareness, if you become obsessed over ‘wanting’ to be psychic, it will never happen. Be patient with it & make a practice out of it everyday. Use many forms of Divination to open your psychic mind up to a dimension beyond. Allow signs, symbols & messages to flow into your everyday life & take physical note of them. Listen & be willing to learn more. Teachings will never stop, you will only grow wiser & a little more enlightened by the light of each new sunrise. You hold an amazing ability within you, let it shine! 😉

The Magick of Amethyst ~ The White Witch Parlour

 Amethyst is a favorite among many seeking their higher spiritual self. Read below to find out why & how it can help you.
 How it’s formed:
Amethyst often forms in combination with other minerals, such as Smokey Quartz, Cirtine, & quartz, creating whole new crystals with intensified elements. A scientific study, said that Amethyst owes it’s color to high energy radiation or gamma rays from radioactive sources and the presence of iron built into its crystal lattice. Much of the Amethyst that we see today is taken from the gas cavities of ancient lava tubes from all over the world, Some possibly formed a million years ago & now have become the beautiful Amethyst pieces that we see today 🙂

Myths & Legends :
The name Amethyst derives from the Greek word amethystos, meaning “not intoxicated or not drunken.” and comes from an ancient legend. The wine god Bacchus, angry over an insult and determined to avenge himself decreed the first person he should meet would be devoured by his tigers. The unfortunate mortal happened to be a beautiful maiden named Amethyst on her way to worship at the shrine of Diana. As the ferocious beasts sprang, she sought the protection of the goddess and was saved by being turned into a clear, white crystal. Bacchus, regretting his cruelty, poured the juice of his grapes over the stone as an offering, giving the gem its lovely purple hue; but Of course this story varies wherever you go…

Chakras, Deities & Elements :
It has long been associated with February, the month the Romans dedicated to Neptune, their water-god, making Amethyst a crystal closely associated with the element of water, encouraging us to go with the flow & see beyond what is at the surface. Naturally, these qualities & it’s coloring, work to heal and vibrate with our third eye chakra. Teaching us to always dive deeper, with calm emotions. Amethyst also honors Diana, the Roman Goddess of the Moon, and Protector of Animals, making it an ideal crystal to incorporate into any Full Moon ritual. If you are a Pisces, you may find yourself greatly drawn to this crystal in your empathetic energy, as it can enhance your abilities in your art, allowing the ‘true you,’ to shine through.

Metaphysical Properties :
For centuries Amethyst is said to have legendary powers that stimulate, and soothe, the mind and emotional state. In return helping you to push mental distraction away and better sink into a deeper meditative state. In this state one can better achieve forms of divination, such as tarot reading, pendulum work, automatic writing & spell casting. In the spiritual world, Amethyst strengthens the connection with the Divine, and was often used as amulets in burial to help for a smoother transition between the worlds. Metaphysically, this stone raises one’s spiritual vibrations & awareness, creating a protective shield around the aura & accelerating intuitive & psychic abilities. It can help the user to enhance dreams & premonitions, making it a valuable tool for spiritual growth & guidance while one if advancing on their path to enlightenment.

Physical properties:
Detoxing the mind, body & spirit, thus helping with sobriety & overcoming addiction. It aids the user in enhancing their creativity & self knowledge, helping them strive for a better, healthier & more meaningful life.

Care & warnings :
Amethyst should never be exposed to direct sunlight for long periods of time, as it can fade in color immensely. This is a non-toxic stone & many use it’s energy within elixirs, crystal charged waters & more.

Now that you know a little bit more about the magick that Amethyst can bring to you, take a moment to look at this enchanting crystal with fresh eyes and ask it how it can help you?

5 Tips for Surviving the Mercury Retrograde ~ The White Witch Parlour

The truth is in the stars my friends, what is happening above is also happening below; within us. When Mercury is in retrograde (slows down & appears to be going backwards), we tend to loose sense of our communication, awareness & our ability to adapt since this planet is so closely linked to these traits within us. It is as if we are simply ‘regressing’ rather than progressing. As it stands, the same goes for the rest of the planets and their alignments corresponding to the elements they reflect in us. Since we are made of stardust, we too are bound to feel these energy pulls and shifts in nature, but like fighting nature with nature, we too can use the magickal properties in our plants & herbs from nature to bring us back to our center and welcome a subtle shield or enhancement to the change, allowing for a much smoother or more powerful transition.

It is also known that the planets are closely tied to the zodiac signs and can greatly impact the way an individual with the corresponding zodiac sign can feel or act during a certain planetary alignment. With this knowledge & awareness you can learn to use it to your advantage or fall to resistance and let it take you on a wild ride.

MERCURY is closely corresponded with Gemini & Virgo. It works through matters of communication, transformation, awareness, intellect & versatility. It teaches us to speak the wisdom of our mind and to adapt to our surroundings. It inspires free thinking & materializing ideas or concepts into our reality. As a ‘planet of the mind,’ it reminds us of the importance of movement & progress.

When in Retrograde all these things can becomes lost or ‘places on hold,’ as we go through this transition in the sky. As things can seem to be shaken up in your life, it might be wise to better plan your affairs & write down your thoughts during your moments of clarity. So here are 5 important tips to help you get through & make the best of this three time per year event.

1.) Wake up & go to bed 1 hour earlier.

During the retrograde it is easy to find yourself loosing track of time, loosing items & even feel like you are loosing your mind.  Allow for extra rest at night & an extra hour in the morning for getting ready & transportation.

2.) Plan, Plan, Plan !

Communication during this time can be at a loss. Technology can fail, flights delayed & thoughts or ideas getting instantly lost in the overbearing chatter in your mind.  Try carrying a notepad with you to write down everything, times, schedules & even ‘back up plans.’  In adding an extra hour in the morning to your day, you’ll already be ahead of the game.

3.) Wait a few more weeks to commit.

Instead of signing a new lease, marriage contract or committing to a large purchase, wait until the Retrograde has passed.  Your clarity may not be filled with wisdom or what your spirit really wants & you may be fooled by an impulse desire or thought.

4.) Embrace the power of crystals & herbs!

Since we are made of nature, let’s use the tools of nature to help find grounding & mental clarity during this time. Whether in the form of herbal teas, crystal grids, herbals incense, essential oil potions or resins, embrace what nature has to offer. During Mercury Retrograde, Frankincense & Mint bring great spiritual cleansing, exciting the spirit & stimulates energy to help awaken mind with clarity. Black Tourmaline, Smokey Quartz, Garnet & Onyx help to ground your sometimes ‘chaotic’ energy at this time.

5.) Reward yourself! Mind, Body & Spirit

Everything needs balance & during this ‘uncomfortable’ transition it’s important to take a step back & truly analyze what changes you may need to make in your life for the better. Through the darkness we can find the light & learn to better appreciate it. Dedicate time to do what makes you happy, salt baths to detox the body, creative expression through music & arts for the soul & indulging in great reads to empower the mind.  If you try to overwork yourself during this time, you will greatly tip the scale to the ‘negative’ side, creating an emotional trip of unworthiness. So stay happy & grateful as much as you can & keep it up after the retrograde passes!

Brightest Blessings,
