This Crooked Crown

Howling, ramblings, musings, and murmurs.

Essentially I'm a ball of wibbly wobbly witchy writingy hermit witch seer with cats and the internet.

Sometimes my life boils down to me standing around in the cooling darkness on a lonely hill to exchange cookies for veal.

You cannot use someone else’s fire. You can only use your own. And in order to do that, you must first be willing to believe that you have it.

I can do witchcraft easier than math and that’s kinda weird to think about

Hello! I love your blog, especially the resources post, it has helped me so many times, you can't even imagine! I have a question about glamours- are there any people who immune to them without any form of magical help?

I’m thrilled to hear that!

I suppose that depends on what you think magic consists of but yes. Some animals are also immune to glamours, cats being one of them. (Foxes too, but not most dogs, however dogs have a tendency to smell that something’s off).

In my mind, yes and no, because my UPG is that magic is part of the essential fabric that makes up life. It’s there for everything and can be utilized both instinctually and at will. To me this partially explains why animals including humans can use magic, why plants, stones, and earth has power (aside from what additional symbolize we ascribed to it), and why/how spirits and deities exist. Therefore magic can be utilized by anyone can access it without ever knowing it was magic. (Magic, in my UPG, shares some influencing factors with psychicism but they aren’t synonymous, BTW.)

TL;DR: So sure!

Hello! I have a copy of Judika Illes 5000 spells from the library right now and while I don't have a need to use much of it right now do you think it would be a good idea to write down some parts that I think could come in handy for later in my small, thin "grimoire" (which has yet to be filled much) before actually trying them? Basically do you think I should only write down spells and other magic that I've actually tried out myself? <3
thiscrookedcrown thiscrookedcrown Said:

I have dozens of spells that I haven’t used in my grimoire - mostly because they might be useful at some point in the future.

If it’s the kind of grimoire that’s expensive or your forever-keeping grimoire, write down the spells in a notebook and transfer them later if you decide to keep/use them.

Alternatively, and this is a favorite of mine because I’m lazy, take a picture of the spell - this also gives you the opportunity to get the source and page number in there too for quick referencing later. It also assures that something isn’t lost in the transfer (if you do write it down in a notebook first and grimoire later).
