As an outsider and an individualist I have different rights and values than ordinary people, as such I am above the conventional bourgeois values and moral standards of the status quo.

Writing your own spells

Step 1
Determine what material components you’ll need to achieve the goal.
Will the working require herbs, candles, stones? 

when writing your own spells ask yourself the following questions:
1:Whats is you spell for?
2: Do you really need too cast a spell for it?
3: Does it mean taking anyones free will away from them?
4:How quick do you want the result?
5: And what exactly do you want the outcome of the spell to be?

Try to think outside the box when you’re composing a spell 
remember that magic relies heavily on symbolism. There’s nothing wrong with using unusual ingredients in a working ,
Decide if timing is important,if the moon phase is crucial. Generally, positive magic, or workings that draw things to you, is performed during the waxing moon. Negative or destructive magic is done during the waning phase. It may be that you feel a certain day of the week is best for the working, or even a certain hour of the day. 

Don’t feel obligated to think of all the details, though. If you’re a person who feels confident doing magic on the fly without worrying about timing, then go for it. Remember it’s your spell, your set up; and as long as your content it should be fine. 



Step 2
Now you have answered all the above questions you need to find out the following:
1: Which day of the week is best to cast the spell
2: Which moon phase will work best to cast under
3: Which colours are associated with your spell
4: Which herbs, crystals and oils are associated with the need of the spell
5: And which Gods or Goddesses you are going to work with.(optional)

Step 3
Now you know what the main things for you spell are going to be. A simple outline for you spell (using candle magick) would be:
1: Casting the spell on the day and in the moon that is needed
2: Annointing a candle (of which colour you would have found out in the step above) with oil and herbs (which you also found out in the step above). 
3: Then lighting the candle and saying a rhyme, chant or verse to the god or goddess you are calling upon statung exactly what you want the outcome of the spell to be.
4: Putting your hands when writing your own spells ask yourself the following over the candle (not so you burn yourself) focus your energies into the candle.
5: Then you have the choice of blowing the candle out a burrying the remaining or letting it burn down completely which will send the spell out into the universe.

—Or making a crystal grid, or just an easy chant will always work. 
. Just make sure you are working in a clean area and cleanse the room of negativity before hand by sprinkling some salt water around and keeping a bowl of salt in the room to absorb negative energies. Smoke cleansing is also a good idea. 

If there are any questions feel free to ask. :)

Massachusetts State Police Issue Apology for “Racial Profiling Saves Lives” Bumper Sticker, But Not Before Lying About It

Massachusetts State Police issued an apology Monday for a bumper sticker on one of their police cruisers that read: “Racial Profiling Saves Lives,” but not before lying about it.

Boston resident Chris Kantos, was walking Sunday morning and came across on official police cruiser, number 1183, and noticed an odd bumper sticker on it.

Kantos tweeted this image out immediately.

Instead of apologizing immediately, Boston PD removed the sticker and published a second image of the cruiser with no bumper sticker. Then accused Kantos of photoshopping the image.

“Why on earth would I photoshop something like that?” Kantos asked on Twitter.

At first I though this was a joke

Don’t ignore this Tumblr

Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.

This reminds me of how a friend of mine was abused by the mother of his child. She was mentally unstable and used to berate him constantly and would smack him in the head all the time. It really pissed me off. Then one night she threw hot coffee in his face and tried to stab him with a screwdriver. The cops hauled him off to jail because she made up a sob story that painted herself as the victim. 

Once he left her, he stayed with me and it was a nightmare. She stalked him and me. She would drive by my house obsessively at all hours of the day and night (her muffler made a weird sound so I know it was her). She started showing up at my job, showing up at the places I frequented around town, and filling up my voicemail with dead air. The cops were no help.

One day she got bold enough to talk her way into my home by conning my elderly grandmother, whom I was taking care of, while I was out. She went in my room and went through my stuff (creepy), then found him napping on the couch and attacked him. My grandmother witnessed the whole thing. He grabbed her by the arms, forced her out the front door, and locked it. The cops were called again. They said they’d go and ‘talk’ to her.

The next day we were watching a movie and there was a knock at the door. The police had come to arrest him. She filed a complaint against him and shown off some bruises on her arms from the altercation that she swore were completely unprovoked. My grandmother saw the whole thing since she was in the living room too and testified on his behalf. He still ended up serving jail time.
No one takes male domestic violence victims seriously. They only see males as perpetrators.

    

Please, if you witness abuse, no matter WHO the recipient is, report it. If someone you know if being abused (not just physically - in any way) help them. Connect them to resources. Gender doesn’t matter in this case - no one deserves to be abused.

When on a low budget, we tend not to have enough money for certain items. I found some good spells, oils, and more on how to draw in money.
This comes from Spells and Magic, in there Money Spells page. Here is a link to all of the spells.

If you want an example of some spells, here’s one I think would help out the best!
To Obtain Money. Done During the Full Moon.
Fill your cauldron (or cup!) half full of water and drop a silver coin into it. Position the cauldron so that the light from the moon shines into the water. Gently sweep your hands just above the surface, symbolically gathering the Moon’s silver.
"Lovely Lady of the Moon, bring to me your wealth right soon. Fill my hands with silver and gold. All you give, my purse can hold.”
Repeat this three times. When finished, pour the water upon the earth. From Celtic Magic by D. J. Conway

Next up is a charm bag for all you crafty witches ;)

What you need:

Incense: Any money-drawing or success incense: cinnamon, cedar, orange blossom, etc.
Small bowl of salt 
Small bowl of water
Red candle
Anointing oil: I like High John the Conqueror for this charm bag, but any money or success-related oils will do
Dried herbs: I like vervain, patchouli and cloves; you can use any money-drawing herbs ideally: mint, basil, cinnamon, money plants, etc.
Crystal: A citrine is the ideal stone for this kind of charm because it promotes success and abundance in business. If you’re a gambler, you’d be better going with a green aventurine. Moss agate, lodestone, malachite, bloodstone—any stone for attracting wealth and success will do
Nail and/or hair clippings: Yours, or of the person who the charm bag is for.
A coin with the year of your birth: Use a nickel, dime, quarter or 50 cent piece, which all have nickel AND copper in them, which is ideal for this charm bag. Avoid pennies, which lack nickel.
Something to represent your work or business: A writer might include a miniature pencil, someone in computers might use a microchip, a clothing store salesperson might include a piece of fabric, you could also include a small picture or even a name of your business written on a piece of paper.
Brown marker or paint pen
Small green pouch or green swatch of fabric: flannel and felt are good choices—choose something that doesn’t unravel
String, yarn or the like





The rest is here on the website!

Lastly a money-drawing oil! This one seems really fun (and sounds like it’ll smell nice too!)
All of this information comes from Spells of Magic. 

First you want to add about 3 drops of Patchouli oil, or a small amount of Patchouli Leaves. Don’t add a lot though, it can be very strong.
Next, add your Cinnamon stick, if you do not have Cinnamon Sticks available, you may add powdered cinnamon. If your cinnamon stick doesn’t fit in your container, snap it in half.
Add the Cloves, I used about a nickel sized amount of Cloves, you can add more if you like.
Place your intention into each ingredient as you add it into your vial. Money, visualize a green/gold/silver energy flowing through them, think of what you need to pay off.
Read the rest here!

And there! Now you have a ton of ways to get more money! 
Personal note: Witches Brew, Witches Purse, and Prosperity candles that are all packed with magic and ready for spells are amazing with money. Carve your full name into each candle and burn them!
Hope this helps!
