The smell of magick

When magick happens it has a certain smell. One that won't go away for days. In my rituals i pretty much use the same herbs every time. But when magick happens the smell is different.
When i was 19 i wanted so much to fall in love. So i casted a spell to find the love of my life. Two weeks later Petros came into my life. I used a small glass then to burn what i wanted. This small glass after six years still has the smell. Yesterday i casted a spell and the same smell is all over my house. It is sweet and beautiful and when i smell it i have butterflies in my stomach.
I am not saying that when the smell is n't there the spells do n't work. But when something really powerful happens the smell occurs. Has this ever happened to you?
I feel like this thing gave me a piece of my self back. Magick fills my life, guides and protects me. I am so grateful for it. Magick is music and love. Magick is powerful words and beautiful energies, magick is colors and friends. It is the sun and the moon. The Goddess and the God. Magick is the divine inside us. Magick is my premonitions but also a great food i managed to make from scratch. Magick is candles and cauldrons but also the forest and the clouds. Magick is the smile of a child,the kiss of a teenage couple. Magick is me and you.
I hope wherever you are you will have a magickal day. Brightest blessings and love to you all.

It's all about the process and the process of magic is a very soothing ritual. Sounds like you have found your indicators. The better your feelings towards it too, the better it works.

This gave me chills.
Beautifully, beautifully said.
Unfortunately, I don't think I've ever smelled anything after my smells before...other than incense and candles. :)

But now I want to! :D

smell and the senses are closely linked, so this makes perfect sense!

I don't think I've ever had a smell linger after doing spellwork. I have felt a different sense in the energy throughout the house.

Perhaps the smell is left not by the magick itself, but by those entities that are guiding your magick.
