Some of the things that get forget when practising a religion is the basics and the most basic is to know, to dare, to will, and to be silent. To know is to have knowledge of what you have in mind. This means learning as much as you can and more about a subject. Remember knowledge is power and imagination is the way to employ that power. To dare is to have the courage not only to see it through to the end but to deal with all the consequences that arise from this action. ” Where lies your fear, there lies your greatest power.” The will gives the magick its flow, because without will nothing will happen. However, it is more than just the desired outcome that is part of the will. If you are not constant in your will, then the outcome will not be constant either. Tune your faith as your own self doubt will destroy anything quicker than anyone else can. Magick will happen if “they say so”. Some witches say “As I do will, so mote it be” to indicate that as they say it, it will happen, it will. Will is a very powerful tool indeed. To be silent is one of the hardest thing to do as we want to share what you do with others. Never share with someone that will cast doubt on your workings. Remember “power shared is power lost”. So be careful who you share your magical workings with. Not in the sense that it will led to a witchhunt, but people are people, and such emotions like jealousy and envy can be dangerous to a witch.
