Roots of Your Craft 30-Day Challenge: Day 16 – Which of the four classical elements best describes you at the beginning of your journey? (Earth, Water, Air, or Fire)
I believe that the element that would best describe the beginning of my practice would be fire. This is because it was the beginning force that pushed me into my practice, it was like the explosion of a flame igniting my inner spirit. it was creative and inspiring, and allowed me to do so much.
I think my first spell had to do with becoming more calm in a stressful situation and it worked very well for me. I can’t remember exactly what I did, or exactly the specific situation. It was nothing too impressive, but it was still a pretty useful, and good spell from what I can remember.
Not particularly. There are a lot of magickal practitioners that have done a lot of amazing things, and have made wonderfully different breakthroughs in magick and the understanding of the occult, but as for people I actually look up to, or admire, I do not have one, and I don’t believe I would be able to pick any practitioner, because I think I admire you all. As for witches, or magicians in fiction I would have to go with people like Dumbledore, or Gandalf for their wise old wizard type of persona and archetype, and I would have to go with John Constantine, and Raven for their badassery.
The color I would associate with the beginning of my practice would be red. This would be because red is connected to passion, power, and the element of Fire. It also resonates to the energy of the root chakra, the fool tarot card, and the sephiroth Malkuth on the Tree of Life. It stands also for new beginnings, spontaneity, and the aspects of a free spirit, and I believe it represents the beginning of my path very wonderfully.
I think that pop culture magick, and technowitchery are very Innovative forms of magick. They have brought a lot of the old understandings into the modern era, and has used the metaphysical knowledge in such a way to incorporate it with things they love. Though a lot of the time these practices can come off as very fluffy, and are sometimes very hard to be taken seriously especially with the way some practitioners choose to use it in there practice, but usuallythese things are very well grounded, and solid in metaphysical understandings. It is still very new and Innovative practice that I can’t wait to see where it goes, and I’m hoping that something great comes out of it.
