@wormpatrol The new moon is the perfect time to get some less-than-savory work done, since Luna isn't watching. Not that I would actually recommend curses or the like, but I'm not gonna tell you how to live your life.
i think a common fear among new witches or witches without easy access to reliable sources or teachers is that the things we practice or do aren’t worth sharing bc they aren’t backed up by solid knowledge and that’s the worst thing ever! so much of wc is instinct and what things mean to you and honestly those are the best things to share! we know what the basics but what did you start doing for no reason? what is an extra step u put in there and why? a small habit u formed bc it felt right?
in fact, i recommend adapting spells and rituals with your *own* associations.
say a spell calls for sage, for cleansing.
say you’re like me and the smell of sage gives you a headache, it might mean pain to you more than cleansing. however, if you’ve always used mint toothpaste, you’d definitely associate mint with cleaning. so, replace sage with mint, and carry on.
this will give you a stronger effect, because it’s your personal experiences that shape it instead of someone else’s.
anyways substituting in a spell or ritual is a useful tool when used in moderation, and you will have equal results by just leaving the ingredient out.
ingredients help focus your intent and energy on your target, so the same results can be achieved with less energy. this is why associations are important, specifically personal associations over standardized ones.
if you substitute nearly everything, your intent and energy won’t be more focused at all, and your results will be poorer for it.
