Blood Magick?

Postby doomlilia » Mon Jul 03, 2017 7:50 pm

I'm curious about the use of blood as an ingredient, why and when one might use it, and in general what one might refer to as "blood magick"...but I haven't been able to find many detailed resources or books about it. I understand it's a bit of a controversial topic, but I'm just genuinely wondering about it. If anyone has book recommendations, I'd be thrilled. Or if you just want to share some facts and figures, I'd be interested to hear!

Blood is used in traditional witchcraft at times. But for the most part, menstrual blood is the most used type that i am aware of. As it requires no pain to get.
I don't do anything with blood because in Egyptian magic if you use blood it is considered not pure. If you offer blood to a god, they turn your thoughts to eating you. Same with the egyptian spirits. Never offer your blood to any being.

Hi Doomlilia,

I may be able to give you some advice on the use of blood in magick but it may be useful to myself & others to know a little more about you, your experience in using magical ingredients, and the path you follow. The use of blood is common in a few branches of the craft and always used with a strong knowledge of what you are doing and the outcome you want to affect.

I look forward to hearing a bit more about you. Blessings, x

I wonder how blood taken in a draw by needle for checking blood levels and such would be? Pax!

It would be fine to use. Intimate love spells may require blood lost by other means, but in the end, blood is blood!

There are uses in the Craft, especially for binding your soul to the magic. There are many uses in AmerInd Medicine. CAUTION-EDUCATIONAL CONTENT: Medicine is the spiritual and magical practice while shamanism is the things like potions, fixing broken bones, etc, the white form of medicine.
