I'm wondering what the general consensus here is. I do hope this is the right place to post this.

I have delved into blood magic, though not very much, and it has worked wonders for me. It feels right to me, that if I want to make a personal sacrifice it must come from me. It doesn't feel wrong, really.

It's well within the history, from blood letting to heal and ritual sun dances in Lakota Paganism. Is it right today?

Do you consider this wrong? For Wiccans, does it not "harm none"? Just wanted to see what the general view was.

Im new here and I realize Im jumping all around to post but I a just going through and replying to whatever interests me or catches my eye...

I do use Blood in my Magical workings, I prick my own finger using a diabetic lancet and then use a few drops into the candle I am burning, I find that it gives the spell more personal power and since Magic is using Natural energies that exist inside me and around me, this makes sense to me.

I personally am not Wiccan so I dont follow the rede but I dont see it as harming myself really, no more than eating a whole pie or drinking once in a while harms me and really the harm is my choice and If I am willing to deal with the consequences then thats my choice!

Make sense?

Terry, I'm pleased that you are 'jumping all around to post'! That lets us know that you're not only interested in what's been said, but you're participating, and that's a very good thing. Feel free to continue to jump around! lol.

I've not thought about this particular thread in a rather long time. I went back and read all the posts from the beginning before I settled down to post this.
I've still not changed my view on it depending on WHAT it's used for. If it's being used to boost something for good, and it's your own, then go for it, but I don't think it's a good idea if a person is wanting to create problems for someone else, or to use blood from anywhere/one, if the intent is to harm/maim/create havock, etc. Now, I could see using it if someone is threatening your(or your family's) life, and you need the punch to stop that person. Or, if someone is in serious need of medical (life and death) help. Won't say that there's not times when it's OK. It's just something I tend to shy away from. I already have to prick my fingers as it is (I'm a diabetic) and I absolutely HATE needles, so it's not something I would willingly do unless the situation was extremely dire and that was the only way I could get the punch I needed. I tend to rely more on the Elements for the punch I [sign in to see URL], so far so good. I really hope I don't need to do any blood [sign in to see URL] I reallllllly hate sticking my fingers (or anywhere else, for that matter LOL)

I use Blood in the same way that I use swear or tears, Its a part of my body and since I believe Magic comes from within, The idea is to put as much of own personal power or energy into what I am doing in order to reach my Goals. emoticon

Re: Blood magic.


Terry, I'm glad you don't have issues with poking [sign in to see URL] with the small amount of blood you [sign in to see URL]. Me, I hate pain with a vengence so if I don't have to cause any for myself, I don't. That's one thing I love about this [sign in to see URL] all are so varied in our beliefs and the way we see things, but it doesn't really matter, because there is no right, or wrong.... it's what is right for that person, at that time in their own lives. It's not for me to say that's wrong to [sign in to see URL]'s wrong for [sign in to see URL] not for you, and I respect that.

(man, I do love our peeps here! We can agree to [sign in to see URL] that I'm disagreeing on this [sign in to see URL] do it in an adult, civil manner!!)

I knew this board felt right before I even joined and posted, It feels like we can agree to disagree in a mature manner emoticon

Ive been on other boards and been drawn into what I call Witch Wars, Im right, youre wrong, you arent really Pagan, You arent doing it right, etc and I cant stand it so Im very careful as to where I join and contribute as I am such a different kind of Pagan. emoticon

This is something we are diligent about [sign in to see URL] keeping the peace. We realize that the path a person is on, is THEIR [sign in to see URL] doesn't have to agree with OUR path anymore than ours has to agree with theirs. The main goal is to live the best possible life we can, and to respect not only each other, but our environment as well. That includes such mundane things as an online message board. While we've never had to ban anyone (thank the powers that be), we have had to calm some overly strong disagreements in the past.
All of the members who are currently posting feel the same way myself and the other 2 admins [sign in to see URL] in order for each of us to learn, and to teach here, we have to be respectful of each other's paths and ways of life. Just because it's not right for one doesn't mean it's not right for someone else.
It makes me very glad that you felt comfortable [sign in to see URL] so to join us. I feel you will have a great deal to offer, and I hope that in return, you gain much from the others here.

As for the other [sign in to see URL], I think we've all 'been there, done that' at some point. Another reason we're so diligent about keeping the peace here. And pretty much everyone here agrees to disagree, respectfully. Good, healthy debate is one [sign in to see URL] is [sign in to see URL] encourage discussion and healthy debate here, but will stop it if it gets out of hand. And, we will stop it in [sign in to see URL] never, EVER say anything to anyone 'in front of everyone else'...that's not only wrong, but highly disrespectful in my opinion. [sign in to see URL] off topic here (sorry guys and gals).....I'm happy that you're comfortable here!

Re: Blood magic.


I love the fact that Terry is jumping in and [sign in to see URL]'s adding new energy and life and I feel it when I come here. Feels like home even more now than ever before. emoticon

And to be quite honest, though I've not done it yet and may never do it, I believe that "blood magic", especially the way the Terry is using [sign in to see URL] come perfectly natural.
I see it harming no one, not even himself. Doctors take our blood constantly, trying to keep us healthy!
I believe our blood is another energy source, just like all the living things around us. It's to be used, and treasured.

And I too, when I first began trying to figure out 'what' I was feeling and [sign in to see URL] ended up in the 'witch wars' on several other [sign in to see URL] ended my Path they did. Thank the Universe for sending me here.... emoticon
