What's Your Magickal Focus?
What is YOUR magickal specialty? Herbalism? Healing Magick? Directing Energies? Invoking the Nature Spirits? How did you come to choose/decide to develop this area of expertise? How long did you have to practice and study before you felt reasonably proficient in your magickal focal-work area? Did you have a natural talent for this to begin with or did you decide to study this particular area of magick for another reason? What advice for developing skills or expertise would give to someone who is considering entering into your particular magickal focus-work area? What are the 'neglected' areas of magickal Work-you know, the not so glamorous service-oriented stuff that is really needed, but for some reason or another, not too many Pagans are motivated to develop or are interested in studying?

| My Focus Is Healing. I Didn't Really Choose It, It Is Just... ||Jul 22nd. at 2:51:46 pm EDT|
|Cary "Sketch" Vandever (Long Beach, California US) ||Age: 20 - Email |
My focus is healing. I didn't really choose it, it is just what I seem to do the most of, and what works more bacause I'm still learning a lot. I use energy and visualization to heal myself and others, and have dabbled a bit in actual spells, which seemed to work. It's almost creepy, though, to work on healing someone else and not telling them how I'm doing it (or in some cases, not even telling them that I'm doing anything at all) and then having them describe to me exactly what they felt (and in essence, what I did) after whatever was ailing them is either lessend or gone. I'm also looking into herbalism to heal, relax, and energaize. I've only been healing for a year or two with energies and visualization, and for even less with spells- it seems more a natural thing to me so I think I'll explore speels simply for that purpose: just to explore, see what it's like. I'm always telling my friends to mediatate more if they're stressed or restless or seem to have no energy. They usually just shrug and say "yeah, maybe" and then when they finally try it they come running up to me the next day all excited that it worked. Then if theyr'e interested, I tell them what I know of energy and visualizing. I think that simply taking time out each day to sit and clear your head is important, because then anything's possible. After your head is clear, that clears the way for further explorations.
| Hey All! It's Whitefeather Again! The Only Advice I Have For Practicing... ||Jul 22nd. at 3:34:59 pm EDT|

Hey all! It's Whitefeather again! The only advice i have for practicing pagans is to practice practice practice! That's the only way to learn and get good at what you want to do. It took me forever to learn all of the Tarot cards, what they said and what they weren't telling me. Sometimes that was more important than what they were telling me. But, I got it. And now, I'd like to think that I'm good at it. Reliable at least. Tarot is my thing, even though some think that it's just a cheap party trick, or a hoax, or that I'm lying flat out at. That's that. Blessings and Light! Whitefeather
