Dark Arts: The Real Reason Your Computer Keeps Crashing
Advice for the cybersavvy coven, as published in the spring 2003 edition of New Witch magazine.
» Because the physical hard drive is a conduit for a unique type of energy, it is possible for nature spirits (called vaettir) to take up residence within it.
» Do not curse, yell, smack or otherwise vent your anger on your computer. Most vaettir are extremely sensitive to emotions.
» Emotions are energy, and mixing incompatible energy fields can have bad results: culminating in the dreaded “blue screen of death.”
» Do what you can to make the computer feel welcome in your home. This includes talking to it, naming it and even offering words of encouragement.
» [Cleanse your computer] by sound. Either clap your hands around the computer or use a rattle. A handful of coins in an old coffee can works just as well–the object is to break up stagnant energy.
» Put unusual and pretty things by your computer for the vaettir’s
enjoyment. Pretty stones, crystals, feathers, intriguing pictures help create a positive environment.
» TURN THE COMPUTER OFF COMPLETELY WHEN YOU ARE WORKING MAGIC. I cannot emphasize this enough. I’ve had friends who have had their computers completely crash due to simple energy overload when they inadvertently left them on while doing spellwork.
