    Also, the best advice I was ever given magickally is Sybil Leek's words: "See to your own house first." It covers a lot of ground, but is always true for me.

    Another bit of advice:
    Psychic attack is extremely rare. Sometimes life just goes downhill for a bit. Problems are not automatically a sign that you have "enemies" or other drama.

    (inspired by recent events here locally)
    Each man performs his service to the Holy according to what he is, not according to what he is not; after all, the sacrifice must not surpass the proper measure of the worshiper. - Iamblichus

    Don't go buy or pick a bunch of herbs without researching them and brew a tea and drink it, or throw it on the incense burner. Some plants are poison. Know what you got, and what it does, before you use it.

    Don't do it. The whole thing is too complicated.

    Never be afraid to question.

    Research everything and anything before doing it.

    Be prepared for the consequences that arise from doing rituals, spells, or any other energy work.

    Life is never easy nor is it meant to be.

    Everybody has opinions. Everybody judges. Its up to us to determine if we allow those opinions and judgments to rule our lives.

    And some of my favorite quotes:

    "Someone was hurt before you; wronged before you; hungry before you; frightened before you; beaten before you; humiliated before you; raped before you; yet, someone survived." - Maya Angelou

    "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense."
    - Buddha

    The gateway to the unseen worlds is your own hear.t

    In other words, know yourself, your interests, strengths and weaknesses...then go from there.

    You're supposed to give one piece of advice

    Wonder if the guides should sticky the thread so it's easy for newbies to find?
