Hello everyone and thank you so much for the welcome. I have some questions and Im hoping that some of you may be able to help me. The questions may range from general to specific depending on what I am asking. I also apologize if I am placing this in the wrong thread, or if my questions become annoying.
This is a two part question. I have heard read a few books about magic and my level (in my opinion) is beginner. I haven’t done many spells but the ones i have done have given me results. A woman (I wont mention her name, but she isn’t here anyway) told me that I shouldn’t do that because it tells the universe/deities that i am “lustful for power” and ill get bad karma from this…is this true?
When it comes to practicing spells just to enhance our abilities, how are we lusting for power? I am simply trying to enhance so that i can become better. Not to take over the world. She claims to be a high ranking Christian-Wiccan. I have only learned this term from her. Can any one answer this and are there such things as Christian-Wiccans?
My third question is should i create a book of shadows if i have practiced magic yet? i want to make my own book to keep information that I wont forget but the same woman advised me not to do so because I haven’t done much yet. I want to create my own traditions. What should I do and how did you guys make your own?
