  1. Hello all Nice to be with all of you I believe I was born a Natural Witch and am proud of this.. I will share most rctenely our newly rescued dog was having some strange issues waking and running through the house as if he was still asleep and growling while in this state he is a very big boy ..so I decided ( because he is so mystical) He and I would share a spell away from the other 4 dogs he responed beautifully..that night I suddenly came down with the most intense headache as he too was acting strangely as if he did not feel well we went to bed early and my husband had Kodi sleep next to my side of the bed we woke together in the morning no more headache and no more episodes ever

  2. I never thought that pentagram also hold so much importance that it is considered to be symbol of health, wisdom, and of light. The five points symbolizes the elements of earth, which is again an amazing fact. The astonishing fact related to this is that the same symbol can become the symbol of devil, if it is turned around those two points. Unbelievable!

    • I believe The Star is actually the image God speaks of in the Holy Bible (around Gen6 ) as of creating man in the image of him is how I understand it; turning satanic when the point becomes reversed. (the fallen angel and followers. Man is the image of the star.
