The purpose of this post is to get some tips and steps to take as you go along your chosen spiritual experience and journey. For the beginner or even for the seasoned witch, in this guide you will get some new idea and technique that will help you learn as much in so far as voodoo and magic goes.
For the beginner, one thing that needs to be known in so far as the practice of magic goes and the need to discover as much in what lies in energy and developing clairsentience, one thing that should come to mind first is the need to create your own altar. And as far as altars go, these are basically those scared spaces which often are too personal. Designing the ideal space for the altar is actually a matter of personal preference as you will find those who prefer leaving them out in the open while for some, these are best when hid from the eyes of the general public. Over and above this, it is to be noted that they can take as much space as you may be willing to dedicate as such you will find some having such elaborate setups for their altars while for some, they do well with just a simple display of the same. But anyway, irrespective of the approach you choose for your altar setup, the one thing that you need to know of is that your altar is all about you and the needs that you have for the practice of magic and witchcraft. Thus when it comes to the setting up of your altar, you need to make sure that it is one that enhances your practice and not come up with one that makes you feel like it is another thing to care for and as such make it as personal as you want to. So, what are altars for at the end of the day?
Talking of the purposes of altars, you need to know of the fact that they serve a lot of varied purposes. In so far as the use and the purposes of altars go, one you need to know that there are those who use the altars as spaces for them to show reverence to their deities. Still there are those who want to commune and connect with their ancestors and as such will make use of the altars to serve this need in their experience. At times, you may even use the altars for both purposes of connecting and communing with the ancestors and as well for honoring your choice deity and all the same, you may use it for neither of the two anyway.
