For witches wanting to learn about some of the spells I cast (my variant of Near Eastern magic) the following materials are useful:
- aromatic fragrances like sandalwood, myrrh, frankincense,
- if possible, not required but it helps: precious metals like gold/silver (foil/leaf counts but isn't as strong)
- sand, particularly that from deserts
- wax used for sealing (different from candle wax)
- a strong sense of spiritual energy and strength, this magic relies on channeling otherworldly spirits, those of weak constitution are strongly advised to avoid higher spells (I'll tag as appropriate)
- The practice is dual-path, meaning both light and dark magic

Enter discipleship

- those born male or female have different spiritual channels (called vessels) and thus are capable of different spells at varying strengths, judge yourself accordingly.
- when sigils are used accuracy is important
- There are certain terms I use present in near eastern mythology, I was taught these terms as a translation, judge accordingly.
- I've done my best to re-adapt the spells in to more modern language, if they sound archaic/pretentious/old I apologize
- I'll put together a more comprehensive kit when I have more energy 🧞 🔮 ✨

@GreatMageOfTheNorth ugh good to know there's weird transphobic bullshit in near eastern magic too

(most of the witch books ive peeked at of domestic origin are..... not... good..... in that regard)

@anna because unfortunately treating trans people properly is "new", it was explained to me as the whole bodily biology thing. Personally I have never seen a difference as to which gender I've cast as. All the spells I use are mostly neutral.
