Earth Healing is a process initiated by the Earth Healing Temple of Global Wicca Tradition with the aim of sending positive healing intentions to earth.

Magick (sai pooja, 16th road, bandra west, mumbai 400050 tel – 09867859058 and 02265250328, 02226055605) today:
Is material life the enemy of spirituality?
Are you being tempted by the Devil if you choose wealth as a goal?
Shall we all abandon all wealth and monetary goals to simply focus on meditation, healing and inner-work?
Should all spiritual work be charitable in nature?
Will the practice of spirituality interfere with your worldly success or career path?
Can you really have wealth while being spiritual?
Is it safe for you to switch over to a spiritual career now, or should you keep doing your regular job which pays your bills so far?
Is it bad to desire wealth, happiness, beauty and love when there is so much poverty, unhappiness and misery in the world?
These are some of the questions that you may have asked at some point of time. It’s almost like a part of you is in the material realm while a part of you aspires to rise above and perhaps even does at times. With one foot on earth and one in the sea, there is a need to find some balance…. some way to integrate…. to attain peace within yourself.
So let me focus on those of you who have been riddled with these issues and questions so far and help you choose what is right for you.
Like the characters called Agents in The Matrix (movie) there are things that might have blocked you from total spiritual awareness. These are not really enemies but those gatekeepers who are there to test you and your faith in yourself. Once you are ready you can not only dodge their bullets, you will find that you do not even ‘need to’. These agents are your own inner blocks of ignorance or fears and none will remain if you are self aware.
Ignorance is a block to spirituality. If you are aware of spiritual truth you will realise that all that is material is indeed connected to and in-fact created by the spiritual. It is a bondage to the illusion of materialism and not material life itself that is your blockage. You falsely believed that material world is unchangeable and you have no power over it. This was your blockage. You believed falsely that you were a victim. You believed falsely that because circumstances and situations in your childhood or past lives were limited or limiting to you. You had lacks, poverty, helplessness and slavery so far and believed them to be your blocks, your limitations – they were not. Your circumstances and situations can no longer be blamed for your bitterness, anger or sorrow. You are and always were in-charge of your destiny, with absolute and total control over any situation or circumstance. You just did not KNOW that till now.
With the awareness that you are the creator of your material life, you can create a beautiful life. Surround yourself with those material things that link you back with the spiritual. Instead of showing off brands that fulfil your ego or status needs you will have loving and empowering objects full of magick and power in your homes and offices. You will go for high energy, good vibration foods, clothing, décor, jewellery – not just for taste or thrill or showing off or looking good, but because of the way they reconnect you to the inner truth and help you stay aware and joyful. Fresh, organic and healthy foods, comfortable, ethical and magickal clothing, magickal crystals, meaningful décor or art, feng shui and magickal arefacts, sacred amulets and talismans can all remind you that material and spiritual life are now being integrated in your quest for oneness.
The Devil is nothing but ignorance of inner spirit. When you are without meditation, without inner silence, it is easy to believe that the outer physical world is all there is. When you look within, you discover that the God or Goddess or Universe is truly inside you and everyone ‘else’ is actually part of the inner self or Spirit which is truly one being manifest as all of us – both things and people around. The Devil is the temptation to stay in the illusion of physical reality.
If Wealth be you only goal ever in life then yes you are in the clutches of the Devil and have no idea what you are truly here for on earth. In you quest for wealth you may go after things that harm your soul, reduce your inner power and make you more and more vulnerable to unhappiness. Drugs, smoking, alcohol, sadism, self destructive behaviours, unethical ways of earning or living, unhealthy sexuality, abusive relationships, harmful behaviours, terrorism, religious fundamentalism, oppression and suppression of those who mean no harm are some of the extreme manifestations of ignorance or Devil.
There is no need to be angry or upset when you see someone earning well or being wealthy. Stop thinking that people who ask for a nice sum of money in return of products or services are fleecing others. Every time you pay someone for some product or service do it with joy and thank the person who is giving you that product or service for helping you and serving the divine self. Do not complain, crib or bargain as this reduces the value of what you are trying to have. You will be always be blessed with multiple times greater wealth than the amount that you are parting with because material life is a creation of the spirit and there is infinite wealth that can be yours at any point of time. Do not feel limited and give with all your heart to those who are giving you something of value in return. Do not say that you cannot afford something you want or do not have the money for it. When you imagine you have more than enough to give you will indeed draw to yourself more than enough provided you do feel deserving of that which you are trying to have.
True wealth is inner wealth and with this outer wealth can be created easily with the power of positive karma (inner and outer work). However for those who are born with a good amount of material wealth but lack spiritual awareness, outer wealth depletes too and they are reduced to beggars eventually. It is a positive and abundant state of consciousness therefore that one must acquire instead of going after outer wealth alone.
Wealth can be created through any positive work, inner as well as outer. It need not be only through the practice of spirituality as a full time career.
You are on the right path if you choose your goal to be your true life purpose – seeing your life purpose as something that gives you inner joy and helps you help the divine self in its expression. Wealth will be just one tool to help you grow and multiply your efforts to create something good on earth. This does not mean that all of us should only choose to be spiritual healers for career. You may be an accountant who chooses to help earth by helping people work with clear financial plans and honesty, thereby doing a lot of good to earth. You may choose to be an air hostess who helps travellers feel safe and well looked after and therefore does a lot of good on earth. You may be a millionaire businessman giving employment and bringing to consumers products and services that make life easier and happier for the world and definitely you too are doing a lot of good on earth. Being in a meditative state helps you perform any of your tasks better and more purposefully. You can be completely present in your job or business on a day to day basis as you serve your inner god or goddess through your outer work as well as inner work.
We are always serving the divine as all of us are parts of the great divine self. Anything we do to help each other is a divine work. The moment you gain awareness about how your being here is part of the universe’s good and divine self you will then earn and create wealth without guilt. Wealth can therefore be your goal but not the ultimate goal, only a way in which you can live better and work better for the benefit of our world.
If you are serving other beings of nature (not just humankind) you will still be rewarded with true wealth and happiness in return for nature always gives us magickal powers, support, love and joy as rewards for taking care of its children. By working for clean environment, green trees and healthy animals, we are creating a healthy world and a happy world to enjoy. There is no point in having a lot of bank balance and real estate if there is no fresh air to breathe in, if you cannot take a walk in a beautiful forest or garden from time to time, if you cannot hear the chirping of birds, the rustling leaves, the murmuring waters, play with cats, marvel at beasts and befriend a familiar.
Spiritual work need not always be charitable. Some spiritual workers might not feel comfortable asking for charity and might want to be fair and clear in their dealings of all giving and receiving plus prefer to pay their full taxes as well.
There is no need to be afraid while making a switch from your mundane jobs to a spiritual healing career in case you are truly ready to perform this task on earth. If there is any fear of whether you will be able to sustain yourself or pay your bills, your fears are truly baseless. You need to check whether you are truly ready yet for it is necessary to be self realised and at least healed at a basic level before you try to teach or heal others.
You can have wealth while being spiritual. It’s just that usually spiritual people do not feel the need to accumulate or hoard wealth. They are simply not very insecure and truly less needy. The universe is our bank, the universe always has infinite resources and the universe is within. When we need something and only if we need it, we surely manifest it. We feel little or no need to show off wealth or to acquire more than required material possessions as we are happy to have what feels right. We do not need to have a huge bank balance to save for a rainy day as we are always safe and secure from within and we simply will not manifest a ‘rainy day’ unless it is raining happiness, love and abundance.
We feel glad to see others happy, well to do, honest, loving, fulfilled, beautiful and healthy as we realise that all are parts and aspects of our own inner divine self. If there are any signs of poverty, misery or sorrow in the world, it is just a sign that we need to create more awareness and spread spiritual truth around for this is the only way to liberate and help the world.
Read wealth affirmations regularly and incorporate them in your spells and prayers.

Ever since I launched Magick – India’s first Magickal and Wiccan store in the heart of Mumbai (Bandra West), I have seen many reactions from all kinds of people. Followers have lined up for remedies, help and solutions. Students have enrolled for a multitude of courses in spells, healing, divination and tarot. Dedicated disciples have recieved initiation into the Global Wicca Tradition. Skeptics and non-believers have started beleiving. Critics have turned to fans.
There has been an absolute change in the spiritual and metaphysical scenario of the city. More people are rising in consciousness and awakening to their true inner power – the power to heal, help, the power to liberate from suffering, both themselves and others around them.
Several healers are proudly calling themselves ‘witches’ and ‘Wiccans’. Some are even following in my footsteps.
At the same time, we must not forget that the world was so far in darkness of ‘tamas’ (kalayuga) and is waking up like a little baby. A newly awakened being is still confused and dazzled by the light. One main feature of kalayuga is the presence of dark and manipulative people who are low in morals and ethics. Even in the world of ‘spiritual healing’ you will see some of those around.
It is necessary to also check the credentials of the healer properly. They should be well acclaimed and knowledgeable. If they claim they are Wiccan, please ask for certifications – check which Tradition they are initiates of, or are they just a follower of a tradition, without having undertaken training…also if they are trained initiates check if their Clergy status is still valid – or were they cast out of the tradition. Remember Wicca is a Tradition based system. Check what sort of a Tradition the person is representing…are they truly doing good work. Just because someone says they are Wiccan – doesn’t mean they really are experts in Wicca. They may have just read a book or a website. They may be still learning. They may have taken initiation from a very vague source. Or they may not even know the true meaning of Wicca. There are ample cases of some teens coming together and practicing some dark arts and going around claiming to be ‘Wiccan’ whereas they do not even follow the Wiccan Rede of Harming None. There is a very well known ‘Wiccan’ author who claims she can bring you any man or woman of your choice – a totally non-Wiccan thing to do as it comes under the category of dark arts (Wiccans never do spells to attract specific person). Media and public were so far ignorant about whom to follow and whom to not.
The good news is that all this is changing – people are being more careful about what type of spiritual healers they associate with. They no longer follow fake babas or negative black magicians or bad witches.
I have found that people are careful about quality and ‘energy’ these days. They will seek the best and know how to follow their intuition to choose what is right for them.
That is why there is Magick at 16th road Bandra West, near Mini Punjab restaurant. Tel 022 65250328 timing 1130am to 830pm. In this little store you will find all you need to have a better life – in the form of stones and crystals, amulets and candles, spellkits, incenses and herbs. You can even get your cards read by experts who are fully trained and qualified by Tarot India Network, and get a spell cast for you by those who have been properly trained in the Global Wicca Tradition – so you know that you are in safe hands.
Rev. Swati Prakash
from 1130-830 pm @16th road, Bandra West, Mumbai
Clear your mind and think good thoughts,
Say affirmations, pray a lot,
Practice kindness and compassion,
Live your life with utter passion,
Good intentions guide you through,
And what you believe will come true,
But you will Manifest for sure
When you open up your Psychic Door,
And use the Witch’s Power to,
Deliver what is best for you,
So light a Candle, chant the Words,
Cast the Runes and mix the Herbs,
Brew the Potion with emotion,
Close your eyes and visualise,
Feel the power, free desire,
Earth and Water, Wind and Fire,
Sweep the Broom and wave your Wand,
And manifest the good you want
Thank the Goddess and the God
Learn the secrets of the Craft
For words, thoughts, actions, all work well
But nothing beats a Witch’s Spell

What is Wicca:
Wicca is a new wave of Magick spreading all over the world as a modern religion that helps you connect and project your inner powers for the benefit of yourself and the universe.
Wicca is different from ordinary witchcraft and must not be used as
another term for any witch.
Sure Wiccans consider themselves to be at the basic level…witches or
wizards or magickal people, but there are a lot of witches out there
who practice some kinds of magick or witchcraft but who do not qualify
To be a Wiccan is to be part of the religion called Wicca. Wicca is a
modern religion inspired by ancient nature based beliefs and practices
that include magick. It has developed in the 21st century itself.
WITCHCRAFT AND WICCA:
A witch can be any kind of magickal practitioner such as a Reiki witch, a Feng Shui witch, a Candle magic witch, a Shaman witch and so on. Any human with magickal powers is arguably a witch and I must declare that we ALL HAVE magickal powers…its just that not all of USE it. With the rise in global consciousness more and more of us are realizing that we create our reality and this is leading to the popularity of Wicca as a modern religious belief system.
Wicca is a totally specific religious system.
History of Wicca:
Religion is shared or organized spirituality.
The Wiccan religion began as a group based practice of spirituality
when Gerald Gardner wrote rituals and initiated witches into what is
known as Gardenerian Wiccan Tradition. Similarly other traditions came
up over the world to initiate more individuals into various forms of
Wicca. Each Wiccan tradition is based on their own unique ways of
practicing the Wiccan faith.
About the Burning Times:
About the notorious practice of witch persecutions and the Burning Times, I do not think Wiccans were burnt at all (the religion of Wicca is
more modern in timeline while the burning time was medieval. The
classical period of witchhunts in Europe falls into the Early Modern
period or about 1480 to 1700 while Wiccan religion is coming up in the 21st century itself). Alleged witches are said to have been burnt
….though it may have included random people who were believed by the inquisitors to have used magickal powers were punished. Wicca is popular at a fabulous period of human evolution, where we are all accepting that we have free will and can affect our future with harm to none and for the best interest of all concerned. There is no longer a fear of our own inner
self. We have begun to love and accept the witch we all are.
You can be a Solitary Witch…but can you be a Solitary Wiccan? There is confusion or doubt about whether you can still be called a
Wiccan if you are not a member of any tradition. In the absence of awareness or access to a Wiccan tradition that resonates with them, some people do fashion themselves as ‘Solitary Wiccans’ inspired by the writings of authors such as Scott Cunningham and may not be initiates of any tradition though they pick up knowledge from here and there and this
is what was happening so far in India.
Being a part of a coherent tradition helps you gain clarity and focus on as your spiritual path and the Global Wicca Tradition headquartered in Mumbai helps you in this with free membership to anyone who wishes to follow the Wiccan faith as well as official initiations for Qualified Wiccan healers on offer.
Wiccan Traditions can have one of more temples of Wicca and the Global
Wicca Tradition has started a few temples such as the Online Temple which is free for public (for Online Rituals), Earth Healing Temple (for rituals held in physical location) and a Children’s Temple of Wicca too has just begun. Members who choose to study and learn Wicca need to pass from one to three degrees of Wicca and can choose to be initiated as a priest or priestess of the Tradition (addressed as Clergy) enabling them to take up Wicca as a career offering ritual services to the public with support and backing of our tradition.
The Global Wicca Tradition (www.globalwicca.com) is newly launched and is the first of its kind to originate in India. We believe in the scientific basis and practical applications of Magick for the benefit of nature (humans seen as part of nature). Global Wicca incorporates deities, gods, goddesses from all over the Globe from several cultures and religious beliefs into their rituals…. in a Wiccan way, making it suitable for people regardless of religious backgrounds and belief systems. You can study the Global Wicca path online as well as offline – refer to the syllabus given on the website.
The Correllian Tradition headquartered in USA has its own unique philosophy and is a leading organization growing rapidly. I support them as their Clergy member. More on www.correllian.com. Correllian Wicca can be studied through Witchschool International and I am presently in-charge of all their students and mentors in India and also available as mentor on www.witchschool.com
Remember if you are a student of Wicca you may want to study under at least one tradition or another else you may not get a clear understanding and may remain a dabbler as most solitary ‘Wiccans’ remain.
To be initiated into one tradition you may be required to study under their system and being a student of one may not automatically make you eligible to join the rituals, practices and to take up initiation of and into another Wiccan Tradition.
You will find that each tradition is different in ideas, philosophy, leadership, structure, ritual systems and beliefs and you may be a part of one or more tradition if they so allow. In the case that you are associated with more than one tradition, you will have to switch between two differing practices of Wicca as you go from one tradition’s events to another.
Most Wiccan traditions do however share some common beliefs and practices.
Basic Wiccan Beliefs:
- Belief in magick, i.e. we all create our reality and can choose our future consciously.
- Belief in the five elements of nature: Earth, Air, Fire, Water, Spirit as the five building blocks of creation aid in magick
- Belief in Deity being both Gods and Goddesses as well as a universal deity that is all encompassing
- Belief in Karma, or Law of Three (All energy you send comes back to you multiple times of three till you learn the lesson). The core code of conduct in Wicca is a simple and rational one: “Do as You Will as Long as You Harm None” – referred to as The Wiccan Rede that protects you from doing harm to others and yourself. (Just following the Wiccan Rede does not make you Wiccan as Wicca includes several philosophies and practices that need to be learned)
The practice of Wicca includes Rituals (ceremonic rites) celebrating
the wheel of nature (Seasonal Sabbats and Esbats), and spells
incorporated within Wiccan Ritual format for various positive purposes
such as abundance, healing, removing negativity and so on. Here
different traditions have their own Ritual and you may follow your
Wiccan Healing as a Professional Service:
Wicca is not just a method or technique. It is a religious belief
system. To be a Wiccan is just like being a Hindu, or Christian and so on…it is a religion. (Media, to whom being a Wiccan comes across as a unique thing, sometimes mentions me as simply as ‘Swati Prakash – a Wiccan’ when truly I am a Wiccan Healer, a leader, an expert)
As a qualified Wiccan Healer, one can surely use the energy and skills for the benefit of the rest of nature.
You can ask our tradition’s Clergy members to perform ritual services for you (for individuals and for groups). These can be performed by a single clergy member or a group of clergy for greater energy.
