In addition to those tools gifted to you by the Cosmos, the most powerful rituals, crafting techniques and magical tools are those you creatively develop, purposefully fashion and do the work to (witchcraft) make yourself. The creative works of your own hands, imbued with your own essence, carry the deepest energetic impulse of your unique divine soul spark, a resonance of being which no one else on the planet has but you.
Witchcrafting will also powerfully aid you on your journey toward a more conscious connection with your higher self, as the action and act of soul filled crafting crafts, not only the physical tool or ritual itself, but the conscious connection to your higher self as well. Witchcrafting is transformative soul craft.
Understandably, many witches today in our time pressured modern world are unable to make all of their own rituals and tools. In this case, try your best to be mindful of the energetic environment in which your ritual or tool was crafted. Your thoughtful intuition is your best guide on this matter. Add something of yourself, even as small as an intent filled whisper, to tools you do not make yourself.
With respect to the energetic soul resonance infusing the magical candles, intention oils, herbal alchemy blends and other handcrafts master crafted by Lori, the witch of WITCHCRAFTS ARTISAN ALCHEMY®, I am a seasoned natural witch and practitioner of ever-evolving yet traditional spiritual arts. Born with epigenetic awareness and memory of my preincarnate, intercarnate and incarnating journey into physical existence (a phenomenon called "conscious birth" by some), classically called and initiated by the Ancestral Folksoul Master Witches of my People, I am an evolving Scientific Traditional Witch walking a secular magical path. From indigenous Old World European ancestry through both my maternal and paternal Cro-Magnon genetic lineages, I practice Old World European Witchcraft rooted in the traditions of my ancestors.
My Cro-Magnon (early modern human, namely European Homo sapien sapien) ancestral genetic lineages are known to have inhabited Europe up to 50,000 years ago. I also have Neanderthal (Homo sapien neanderthalensis) and Denisovan (Homo sapien altaiensis) archaic human ancestry. Diverging from European Homo erectus, Neanderthals emerged in Europe around 430,000 years ago and expanded east into Western Asia and the Middle East. A sister group to Neanderthals, Denisovans diverged from Neanderthals around 400,000 years ago and inhabited Eurasian territories which included the Boreal Forest Biome (a habitat they shared with Neanderthals and early modern Homo sapiens sapiens). Thus, my known genetic roots in Europe extend into remote time when European Homo erectus dominated the continent over 2 million years ago. The resonance of this scientifically proven and conscious connection to my deep time Old World European ancestors I bring to everything I witchcraft.
Authentic ancestral spiritual inheritance, focus and self-mastery empowers handcrafts by Lori.
