Learn the power of Slavic magic

Learn the power of Slavic magic

People who practice magic in Poland usually base their practice on foreign methods, but also beliefs. So they reach for Tarot cards, draw on astrology or Nordic runes. When you glance at the recipes for concoctions for love, health and prosperity, you’ll find mostly ingredients you have to look for in the store, not in your own garden. The incantations contain the names of foreign gods, and the Wheel of the Year consists of the names of holidays, which in no way sound familiar.

And all in all, it’s not surprising, since knowledge of the faith of our Slavic ancestors over the years has not been readily available at all. So it was easier to reach for the magical books of foreign authors than to search on our own for information about our native magic. Fortunately, this has finally changed, thanks to Dobromila Agiles and her “Slavic Witch”. And, you have to admit, it immediately makes your heart warmer when you look into this publication. Because everything is finally as it should be. Instead of the names of foreign gods, we read here about Perun, Mokosha, Swarog. For herbal magic, only those plants that grow in Polish meadows or in our gardens are used. Instead of the classic image of an evil witch, there is Baba Yaga. The nanny known from foreign films is replaced by a mystical whisperer.

Including this item in one’s magical practice or just in gaining knowledge about magic is not only pleasant, but also simply practical. Slavic sorcery relates to our traditions, is less exotic and therefore more sincere. Especially since we have been practicing some elements of Slavic magic since time immemorial – such as fortune-telling on St. Andrew’s Day or melting of Marzanna. The book also includes information on native amulets and talismans – much more familiar than the Celtic Cross or the Hand of Fatima.

Motanki, or Slavic doll magic

Our Slavic ancestors believed in the great power of self-made dolls. “Motanki” were created from twigs and strings, without the use of needle, thread or scissors. This was crucial – a blade could “pierce” the doll, while taking away its power. The process of creating a hoeing doll had to be done in concentration, uninterrupted. The woman hoeing the doll had to think about the task the doll would have to perform. For these were not such ordinary dolls – some of them (such as żadanice) had the power to make dreams come true. On the other hand, grain dolls (filled with groats, peas or rice) ensured the household’s prosperity. The task of the moths was to protect against evil and disease.

Motanki can also be made without much effort today. In fact, they have recently become increasingly popular. You can learn more about the types of hankies, but also when they are best made, in the book Slavic Witch.

Magic in Everyday Life. How to be a Slavic witch?

Dobromila Agiles in her book is not limited to presenting history and magical rituals. In “Slavic Witch” you will find a whole chapter devoted to worldly matters as well. On how to exercise, how to dress or what to adorn your body with.

It turns out that all these aspects can be done in a slightly more Slavic way. What’s the point in this? For example, that a good option for a modern Slavic witch is to wear skirts inspired by folk patterns from the area. In turn, a beautiful magical decoration can be a macramé. To make it, linen or cotton threads are used, which are woven by hand.

A separate issue related to the Slavic lifestyle is physical activity. However, instead of practicing yoga, you can try Gennady Adamovich’s “Slavic asanas.” These are 27 exercises from which you should choose seven main ones (this is done on the basis of your horoscope). These “Slavic asanas” a woman should perform regularly throughout her life to take care of her physical health, but also to get a little closer to our ancestors.

Slavic magic, though ancient, is only today emerging from the darkness of history. It’s about time, because for us Slavs, there is no better kind of magic. After all, no matter how you look at it, we have it in our blood. And each of us is already a bit of a Slavic witch.
