Since I began practicing witchcraft, dream magick has always seemed like the height of divinatory practice. The first spell I ever cast was to help me communicate with others through dreams, and since then I've been able to count on psychic dreams to give me a heads up when things are about to go sideways … Continue reading Dream Magic + Cannawitches
