SOMETIMES MAGIC ISN'T IN THE AIR -
SOMETIMES IT IS!
Most people find the shamanic practices of Native Americans so similar to Witchcraft. To learn more read Celebrate The Earth - A Year In The Pagan Tradition. Laurie Cabot with Jean Mills. Chapter Mabon, pg. 231 to 259.
I often warn people about using Black Magic, which can be extremely harmful, even if at first you obtain incredible results. Sooner or later you’ll have to pay a terrible price, and that will be very hard to bear, both for you and the people around you. That’s why I strongly advise people not to embark on this negative path. There’s nothing, however, to prevent you from practicing White Magic. Most psychics and esoteric masters are open to the practice of Magic, as long as it’s done with a positive goal in mind.
White Magic is a collection of practices, rituals, ceremonies and enchantments designed to attain a certain objective. It can make dreams and desires come true much faster than if you relied solely on human methods.
The practice of White Magic implies believing in, and calling upon beneficial Invisible Forces, represented by entities existing on other planes of consciousness, and sometimes through the intervention of material symbols that act as intermediaries between you and the supernatural Higher Forces.
You can supplicate superior entities directly. They include divinities, gods and goddesses (even God Himself, if you believe in monotheism), as well as other entities like Archangels, spirits, departed saints, and great spiritual masters past or present, residing here on Earth or in the hereafter.
You could ask for the intercession of the planets (the domain of astrology), especially those in our solar system which affect the Zodiac: the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Pluto, Uranus, Venus, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars and Earth.
According to some traditions, it’s also possible to ask for the intercession of animals (including birds and fish), plants, minerals, the elements (earth, air, fire and water), the spirits of Nature, the cardinal points, and so on.
As you can see, there are many possible intermediaries for the practice of White Magic, just as there are innumerable rituals and ceremonies. If you do some research using the key words “White Magic” on the Internet, you’ll be sure to find an infinite array of resources and possibilities. Then you can rely on your intuition and your attraction to one practice or another to choose which of them you want to perform. Is A Ritual White or Black?
Always make sure a ritual or ceremony you’re thinking of performing belongs to White Magic, or you might end up practicing the dark form, with all the terrible consequences that implies, both to you and those close to you. When in doubt, don’t perform the ritual in question. Only use rituals that clearly belong to White Magic.
In any case, it’s very simple to recognize a White Magic ritual and differentiate it from one that is part of Black Magic.
Use the following recommendations, which are infallible.
First, look at the goals of the ritual. Is it destined to do good or bad? The answer to that question isn’t always obvious, because you can improve your health, or find love or money, just as easily using malevolent practices as beneficial ones. Black Magic rituals can be very effective, until you have to pay the price. That’s because there’s often another side to Black Magic than the one you intend.
In White Magic, nothing is demanded of you except to do good, and behave positively in your life.
But if the price you have to pay consists of losing your soul, or losing things that are dear to you, or letting someone have power over you, then you can rest assured the ritual is one of Black Magic.
Rituals Are Concentrations of Invisible Power
Rituals are essential intermediaries for connecting to the Higher Universal Forces, and the best way to rapidly achieve your goals.
Of course you can pray, meditate or supplicate a symbol of what, for you, represents the Supreme Power. A ritual, on the other hand, is comprised of a series of specific gestures (adopting a certain attitude, repeating certain formulations, using certain materials like candles, incense, beneficial objects, sacred books, and so on) to concentrate the Invisible Powers and make your wishes more likely to happen.
Rituals are both the best part, and the worst obstacle, to true Magic. They’re the best part because they represent the surest and fastest way to attain your objectives. But they can be obstacles when people make mountains out of them, thinking they’re so complicated only an experienced specialist (psychic, medium, wizard, sorcerer, etc.) can perform them properly.
Most Rituals Are Very Simple
You absolutely must get the idea that a ritual is difficult and complicated out of your head, because the exact opposite is true.
What creates the impression of complexity is the fact that rituals include many elements people aren’t used to: magic formulas, special accessories, specific gestures, and so on.
One thing you should know is that there’s no hazard as far as rituals are concerned. If you’re attracted to one on the Internet, or in a specialized book or magazine, or if a ritual is transmitted to you by someone else, it doesn’t happen simply by coincidence.
Coincidence is something that doesn’t exist in Magic, whether it’s white or black. Coincidence is the name people give to events they can’t explain. But in the Universe, nothing happens by coincidence. Our entire existence is a chain of causes and consequences, which in turn become the cause of something else, and on it goes…
The fact that you’re reading this now means you’re interested in the occult sciences. As such, you’re probably convinced of the existence of other worlds, aside from our visible material world. You may have even watched, or participated in, the expression of some extra-sensorial faculty.
An uninterrupted chain of causes and effects have led you to this Good News Letter… and to me!
Rituals Choose You
Your research on the Internet or elsewhere is going to give you access to a certain number of rituals, some of which you’ll feel highly attracted to. That means the Higher Universal Forces (once again, you can call them anything you like, according to your beliefs) are leading you to the ones that are right for you, and perfectly adapted to your needs.
The only rituals you’ll find on the Internet or in specialized publications are those that can be performed by ordinary mortals. Rituals of High Magic reserved for great esoteric masters (magi, mediums, sorcerers, etc.) are never made accessible to the public-at-large (at least if they’re authentic). The higher Universal Forces make sure of that.
If you’ve encountered a ritual you like, it’s because the Higher Invisible Forces have decided that you can use its magic, and are capable of doing so with success. In a way, it’s not you who chooses the ritual, but the ritual that chooses you! Whether or not a ritual is successful doesn’t depend only on the Higher Powers however, but also on you.
Conditions For Making Wishes A Reality
Don’t become impatient with the Higher Forces if a ritual doesn’t bring you the results you expect at first. Neither should you blame yourself or anyone else, because if you do you’ll only create more negative energy that will make it even harder for the ritual to succeed. The best thing is to keep repeating the ritual and read the instructions over and over, making sure you understand everything fully. Then do exactly as you’re told, in the right order of course, and have total faith in your success. If your conviction is strong enough, you should soon start seeing results, maybe faster than you think. At that point, you mustn’t forget to thank the Higher Invisible Powers for making your wishes come true, through the practice of White Magic.

Wiccans and Pagans have an animal companion that they consider their familiar. A familiar is part of the family.
A familiar is often defined as an animal with whom we have a magical connection. If an animal has appeared in your life unexpectedly -- such as a stray cat that appears regularly, for instance -- it's possible that the animal may have been drawn to you magickally!
