I am so excited! I have always been drawn to black cats, by coincidence every single cat I’ve had has been a black cat. I have not had a cat in over 10 years. But since I started on this path about a year ago I’ve been contemplating getting another cat. My husband has been adamantly against us getting one. However, I’ve recently felt a strong pull that it was time but I knew how my husband felt about it. So I didn’t say anything I just felt when the right spirit came along it would all work out. This weekend is our wedding anniversary and my husband just surprised me with the news that my anniversary gift is a kitten. He’s a beautiful black male we are picking up on Sunday. My husband (who is very Christian but is incredibly supportive of my beliefs) told me tonight that all of the sudden something told him “don’t be so against your wife having a cat” then almost immediately a friend of his posted online she had kittens available. At first the only black male was spoken for but that fell through. My husband told me he knew “that’s my wife’s kitten” the moment his saw the picture. I am obviously going to wait to name him until I actually get to meet him and his name comes to me but I’d love some great suggestions to start thinking about names.
hi! i don't know if this is the right place to post this, but i'm looking for protection spells for familiars if anyone knows a good one :) i have two familiars, two cats Juniper and Fluffy, and only Junie lives with me right now (I just moved and Fluffy has yet to join). Fluffy is at my mom's house living as an outdoor cat, and I worry about her every single day, but she can't come to my house for another week. add in the fact that one of my family's cats just passed away - less than a month after one of our dogs passed, both suddenly - and i'm worried about my Fluffy girl. It would give me peace of mind to cast a protection spell for her, and for Junie too, but I'm not sure how to do so. Or if you know of a spell for a large number of animals, let me know so I can cast it on my mother's pets when I go home next!
The definition of a Familiar Spirit has changed and been moulded with overtime. With many New-Agers and Wiccans, a familiar is an animal (usually a cat) that embodies a spirit, and serves as a guardian for the fellow witch. However, the old (and true) definition of a Familiar spirit is much, much different and complex. A Familiar is actually a spiritual servant is created for the witch, and is created from the witch's psyche instead of resting in a physical, sentient being. Familiars are just as strong as demons and psi-ball spirits, but creating them can be a challenge. Here is a guide on how you can create one, and how you can have it (he/she/them for some people) be your servant. The first thing you want to do is think of a name for your spirit. No, not names like Samantha or Brown Jenkin. You can use these, but it's better to name the spirit after the intentions it's put to use on, like Lovebringer if you wish for a partner, or a name with a translation of your intention, such as Aadya for strength and willpower. Simply naming your spirit Strength or Willpower is also a viable option. The possibilities are endless. Your next step is to bind the spirit. The easiest way is to make a sigil, which can be done in a variety of ways: from writing a symbol on a piece of paper to creating sigil wheels. You then create or find a physical object which the spirit is bound to when it is not doing work. This keeps it from leaving or sneaking away. This is one of the most enjoyable parts of creating the spirit, so get as creative as you can/like. I usually mark a symbol or the familiar's name to the object. After you do this, you are going to imagine what your spirit looks like, even if it may look slightly different on the astral plane. I sometimes draw my familiars concept and hang it on my altar for later ideas. This is the "incubation" period, but you have yet to summon it to you. That is the next step. Design a ritual for summoning the Familiar. I usually do so on an altar containing the Familiar's sigil, bound physical object, and image. I sometimes put objects that will be relating to the familiar's assigned duties, e.g some medical herbs for a healing familiar. You can also give offerings, such as florals, food...the possibilities are endless. When you begin the summoning, trace its sigil in the air with your finger, a wand, or a dagger while you say the Familiar's names 3 or 7 times (these two numbers are lucky and magical). Keep thinking of the Familiar's name while you look at its image on the altar. If you lose focus, repeat the sigil tracing and name pronunciation while you focus on the image. repeat this ritual everyday until you feel the Familiar come into being. These rituals help minimize influences from errors that may come up from doing something for a first time, so reflecting and re-working on your rituals as you go along helps you create a Familiar spirit to your liking (be wary that there will be imperfections, but nothing can be completely pure and free of flaws). These rituals play a huge role in the incubation period of your Familiar. After your Familiar has been "born" (a truly wonderful thing, indeed), you can start commanding your Familiar spirit for tasks. You want to create a bold proclamation at the time of the summoning. It can be short, about 8 or so sentences long, and should be clear, concise, and to-the-point. In your proclamation, name the spirit, say the purpose for its creation, and the consequence if it shall disobey. Remain calm, and show no fear. You can point a dagger at the sigil for emphasis while you do the summoning. You need to create a "return back" ritual to use once the Familiar has either finished the task or if you feel it has done enough to your liking. If you send it out for long tasks and journeys (such as pursuing an individual for hexes or finding a lost love), be sure to call it back once a week (or more often depending on how desperate you are for the familiar to complete the task) for a short rest period. This familiar can be with you your whole life or destroyed right away, depending on if you feel it is doing your bidding/tasks. More than one familiar can be kept by one witch, but be very careful. Never lose their sigils or the physical objects they are bound to, or the Familiars may destroy themselves. I recommend, if you want to keep your Familiar(s), to keep their sigils on an altar. Over a period of time, Familiars can develop their abilities and become better servants, so I also recommend being patient and attentive. I hope this was helpful...or at the very least beneficial. I tried to write this without it being messy.
