Present within nature are archetypal groups of gemstone and crystalline energy. All gemstones that exist upon Earth are part of the 8 Gemstone Families.

Mother Earth is very simple in the presentation of her creations to us. It is humankind that has made complex, what was once simple and direct.

By gaining an understanding of the 8 Gemstone Families, you will be able to easily classify and identify crystals and stones.

Some gems are part of several categories, such as Ruby; which is a, HEARTSTONE, LIFESTONE and KEYSTONE. Ruby carries a mature Heart chakra energy, as well as being a vehicle for “life-force” or “life fire” energies. It is also one of the gemstone foundations of many civilizations and cultures (hence, a KEYSTONE).

Different colours of the same variety of gemstones may carry different energies. Malachite can fall into one of 3 categories. Dark green varieties of Malachite fall into the TOUCHSTONE category, while the paler shades of green are HEARTSTONES. It was utilized as a sacred KEYSTONE energy in ancient Egypt, Africa and to the Native Americans!

Many gemstones, because of their colour, can be easily recognized as to what family they may be a part of.

Most HEARTSTONES are either green or red (rose to pink).
SUNGEMS or SUNSTONES tend to be yellow or gold in colour, or crystal clear (such as Diamond, Herkimer and Crystal Quartz). As you explore the AORA Gemstone Oracle Cards and utilize them on a regular basis, the 8 Gemstone Family system will become second nature. This will help to simplify and de-mystify gemstone properties and qualities.

Dream stones & Seer stones are those gemstones and crystals that deal primarily with psychic & spiritual development and growth! Dream stones help link us with the deeper levels or realities of our dreams. They are excellent stones to help us consciously enter into the Dreamtime. Jade and Herkimer are two of the consummate Dream stone energies we have on Earth. They are powerful doorways into the magical realm of dreams & visions.


Crystal’s way back

The oldest known systems of healing were developed in India and China around 4000 years ago. While different therapies and exercises emerged from them for example; acupuncture, reflexology, yoga and meditation, the underlying principles are that a healthy body requires a free flow of energy, any impediment to the free flow of this life energy is considered to be the main cause of disease. Crystal healing therapy embraces this ancient wisdom.

Today a growing number of scientists and doctors are openly commenting that crystal healing can help certain conditions and that they appear to be able to influence the vibrational frequency of human tissue. They do, after all, have an energetic frequency of their own, which we make use of in all manner of things; in industry, lasers, computers, watches, liquid crystal displays, solar power and lots more.

Using crystals in healing therapy is a form of vibrational healing or “energy medicine” they are powerful tools when used by a qualified crystal therapist; they help balance the vital life force and bring about optimum health.

Crystal healing therapy is natural and gentle and has no limits.
Each individual client is unique and needs are met by clearing and accelerating the body’s natural ability to heal on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
A complete cleansing of mind, body and spirit.


Crystal Healing Pendulums

Gemstones and Crystals Page 1

Crystal Pendulums come in a variety of crystals, shapes and sizes. They usually have a point, which can be either sharp or blunt.
Pendulums can hang from chains, which can be made of any type of metal, wool, cotton, leather.
Even elastic has been used to hang pendulums from, it does not matter what you used as long as it moves freely.

Crystal Healing Pendulums can be used for clearing, detecting blockages, balancing the chakra.
They are also been used Scrying to locate something that is lost or to decide between solutions (i.e. finding a name for something).

They can be worn as necklaces, you can use them in this way for protection, healing, helping you attain a goal and for any other reason that you require.

Steps to using a crystal pendulum to detect and clear blockages.

1. Hold the pendulum lightly between the thumb and forefinger. Let your wrist relaxed do not tense up.

2. Moved the pendulum to the position on the body that you wish to start.

3. Let the pendulum becomes still, after a moment it and start to move usually in a circular motion. This indicates that the energy is flowing through this area.

4. If it moves from side to side or fails to move, this indicates a blockage that needs to be removed.

5. When this occurs ask the healing crystal to clear the blockage and balance the energy in this area.

6. When this has been done the crystal should move in a circular motion and end come to a stop. It is now time to move on to the next area.

7. Continue in this way until you have covered all the areas that you need to.
8. Go back to the areas that were blocked and note how the pendulum reacts now.

9. Sometimes the areas need to be cleared and balanced more than once to allow the energy to flow freely.

Start your spiritual journey today and change your whole outlook on life forever. We at the Witchcraft Tuition Centre based in the United Kingdom welcome you.

 

Many people tend to shy away from the word witchcraft believing it to be evil. Back in 2014 we conducted a survey of 100 randomly selected people, some 45% believed witchcraft to be Satan related in some way shape or form.

We would like to assure any potential applicant that our tuition centre is dedicated to the teachings of Wicca and spiritual guidance in general.

We do NOT teach any of the so called satanic practices or voodoo related subjects.

We do pride ourselves on the teachings methods we provide to new seekers.
Our one to one or group teaching is completely free of charge and proved to be most beneficial in the spiritual development of the seeker.

Teachings include practical demonstrations at certain points throughout your spiritual journey; we never assume a seeker is ready to move forward without the proper understanding of the course at any given stage.
We use the back to basics method of study till each part of the course is fully understood which we find works very well indeed.

Not every student wishes to sit in doors for hours on end so we opt for a mixture of outdoor demonstrations including herb workings, the earth elements, circle casting, cloud scrying and so forth.

To conclude:   We offer a very wide range of teaching techniques to help anyone who is interested in a spiritual way of life reach their desired goal.

Please Note: We do however require a current photograph with all enquiries to ward of time wasters. Email enquiries without a current photograph attached will be ignored.

The Show Stone and the Magic Mirror

Show Stone

Show Stone and the Magic Mirror

Consecrated globes of crystal or glass, otherwise known as scrying, seeing, or show stones. These items have been used from time immemorial by witches. Used in the development of clear seeing and the questioning of spirit entities.

In the past they were made of quartz or beryl. With the development of high-quality optical glass, natural crystal has passed out of use as being too expensive for the average witch. Or, if a show stone, be it glass or crystal, was too difficult or expensive to obtain, a witch would resort to a magical mirror, or speculum. These being more economical to make and every bit as effective as the former.

Whether you, as a beginner witch, choose to use one or another of these items, what you will need is a black cloth or board to cover your table of practice, with a triangle of manifestation either painted on in white or stitched on in white tape. The triangle’s sides should each measure about twelve inches.

The triangle is a very old witch symbol, and represents the crystallization of form out of chaos. You will find it employed throughout witchcraft whenever some type of physical or magnetic manifestation is required.
Some Cabalistically inclined witches surround the triangle with a double circle, and between the two circles they inscribe the names and seals of the seven planetary angels and the demon kings of the four quarters of the earth, while others seek to enhance the potency of the figure by fortifying the sides of the triangle with the Hebraic divine names— Primeumaton, Anaphaxeton, Tetragrammaton—and placing the name of Michael, leader of the heavenly host, within; but none of these things is strictly necessary.

All you basically need is the triangle prepared with intention which is accomplished, as with your other magical tools, by exorcising and consecrating your materials with fire and water (using a Mercurial incense) in a properly cast circle on a Wednesday. Then, go to work using a charm to state your intention such as “Blessed be thou, focus of power,” again, as with all your other artefacts.

Finally, cense and seal with the triple cross.

At the same time that you make the triangle, you can also manufacture the pedestal for the show stone. This you may make simply from a square slab of exorcised wood, say six inches by one inch, depending on the size of your crystal. Make a slight rounded hollow in the centre to contain the show stone and prevent it from rolling off.

It should be stained or painted black with an exorcised paint in which finely powdered wormwood herb is mixed. All the time you work on it, you should continue the use of the mantram that you evolved for the triangle. Many witches surround this pedestal with the names of the four Cabalistic archangels: Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, Uriel, or their symbolic representatives, the zodiacal signs of Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Taurus. Again, however, this is not strictly necessary, merely a matter of personal preference.

Finally, wash the show stone itself in an infusion of wormwood. Place it on its stand when dry, and cense and seal them both.

Should you, however, wish to make a speculum, or mirror, instead of buying a crystal, obtain a concave clock glass or chemical watch glass? Using the same formula that you composed your triangle by, exorcise and consecrate the clock glass. Then paint the convex side with two good coats of black enamel and wormwood. Hollow out a piece of wood in the manner suggested for a show-stone pedestal, stain or paint it black with wormwood paint, and glue in the black mirror, curved side inwards. Cense and seal.
This is your speculum, which may be used in exactly the same way as the crystal. Both the mirror and the show stone should be kept wrapped in a black cloth, preferably silk, when not in use.

Knot Magick Eliminating Bad Habits

One way to eliminate habits or detach yourself from persons or things that may be holding you back is cord cutting.
You take a number of cords or strings, each representing an aspect or person involved.
One end of you tie to some object: it could be the altar, a tree, a candle stand, whatever.
The other ends you hold in one hand.
As you visualize these strings as representing the bonds holding you back, you take a knife or a pair of scissors and, one by one, cut the cords.
This is a form of initiation. It is a symbolic ceremony that helps your mind separate itself from whatever impedes it.

Knots can also be stitched into clothing for their magickal effects.
This way they can make an easy, portable and unobtrusive spell.
A good way to do this is to take out a small edge of the lining of a lined garment such as a coat, stitch the knot to the inside, and then restitch the lining closed.

If by chance you need help with material placed on our website please contact Kimberley Morgan. Kimberley will be only too pleased to help with any issues you may have. If you should have any positive suggestions for our site we will be pleased to hear from you.

Filidecht Moonraking

Filidecht Moonraking

Filidecht Moonraking

Filidecht Moonraking as is our way

Filidecht. Filidecht Moonraking as you prefer to say

A fili is a practitioner of filidecht sacred ecstatic poetry and nature mysticism.

They were a highly formalized group of poets historically, with training lasting 12-20 years that included much of what the druidic training did.
As Christianity entered the picture, they eventually took over the social status of the druids as the draoi themselves were suppressed.
They had the power to bless and curse, they did divination, they were genealogists and historians, and they presided over the making of kings.”

Eleanor Hull’s Textbook of Irish Literature says:
“The file is to be regarded as in the earliest times as combining in his person the functions of magician, lawgiver, judge, counsellor to the chief, and poet. Later, but still at a very early time, the offices seem to have been divided, the brehons devoting themselves to the study of law, and the giving of legal decisions, the druids arrogating to themselves the supernatural functions, with the addition, possibly of some priestly offices, and the filhem selves being henceforth principally as poets and philosophers.
The division seems to have already existed in Ireland at the time of St Patrick, whose preaching brought him into constant opposition with the druids, who were evidently, at that time, regarded as the religious leaders of the nation, though there does not seem to be much sign that they were, as they undoubtedly were, even at an earlier age in Britain and Gaul, sacrificing priests.”

According to Wikipedia:

“The fili maintained an oral tradition that pre-dated the Christianization of Ireland.
In this tradition, poetic and musical forms are important not only for aesthetics, but also for their mnemonic value.
The tradition allowed plenty of room for improvisation and personal expression, especially in regards to creative hyperbole and clever kenning. However, the culture placed great importance on the fili’s ability to pass stories and information down through the generations without making changes in those elements that were considered factual rather than embellishment.”


MOON RAKING

Filidecht & Moonraking

Moon raking is an old technique used by British witches to charge up water for scrying or magic spells.
It is performed under a full moon with a metal bowl (ideally silver or silver plate, but copper may also be used) or a crystal bowl.
The bowl should be half filled with water (preferably dew or from a sacred well or spring) and left in a place where the full moon’s rays can shine down onto it.
The moon’s rays may be “raked” into the water in the bowl with appropriate gestures of the hands or with a suitable crystal wand.
The silvery light of the moon should be visualized filling and charging the water during this process, and you may wish to chant or use mantra.
When you feel the “moon water” is sufficiently charged, it may be used to scry in.
This water can also be used for cleaning appropriate crystals.
The same technique could be extended to “sun raking”, although a gold plated or brass bowl would then be used, and gold light from the sun visualized filling the water rather than silver.
