Christian Day and Fiona Horne discussed the practice of witchcraft, and how it can be used to help and inspire others. Horne pointed out that the religion of Wicca is a part of witchcraft but not synonymous with it. Witchcraft is a broader concept than religion-- it's the ancient practice of magic by regular people, Day explained.
Many different objects such as items from nature can be used in spells, but candle magic â"employing the element of fire and the energy of colors-- is one of the most effective, Horne said. Rhyme and rhythm can also resonate like magnets to attract goals, she added.
Day, a witch based in Salem, said his practice begins with getting in touch with the alpha mind state. He described a love spell in which an apple is split in half. A photo of the person and the one they are attracted to are placed on the halves, and then the apple is sewn back together.Such items aren't just props but contain the energy placed into them, he suggested. Day, who appeared without Horne for the last 90 minutes,also discussed some of the background of the Salem Witch Trials of the 1600s, noting that people made accusations in order to get rid of their enemies.
First hour guest, Jerome Corsi, the author of such books as Atomic Iran, discussed the ramping up of tensions in the Middle East, with Iran's recent missile test. He also introduced his new weekly subscription newsletter, Red Alert.
