Selfish; also meaning self-centered. Sure, selfishness can be totally problematic. However, to be self-centered is to put your self in the center. From a placed of center, we can more easily see what is going on at the edges. It is easier to hold the fringes when we are centered. Read more

There are times that we do spell work with friends, coven mates, partners, in classes or workshops. We may share all the nitty-gritty specifics of our spells with complete strangers in some of these situations. Does that mean it won’t work? Nope. Again, it is a matter of discernment. Read more
