Silver practices magick every day -- whether it is brewing up a fluid condenser (as shown in the picture on the left), spellcasting in the woods, pouring candles, studying, blending oils or designing quilted projects to carry magickal energy -- to Silver, every thing you do is magick, and everything you create and be infused with joyful, positive energy.
"As I grow older," she says, "I acknowledge the joy in even the smallest tasks. You can turn any activity into an amazing, magickal experience. I work a great deal with planetary hours and the moon in the signs, crafting my projects and activities with astrological synchronicity. I always check the planetary hour and the moon in the signs before planning any activity so that I know what to expect -- what windows of opportunity are open for the work."
I never know when a design idea, or a chant or charm will bubble up to the surface. I carry a notebook with me where ever I go," says Silver. "My friends laugh because I say WAIT!!! I gotta write that down! Later, I will incorporate those lightbulb moments into my work." Every thing you do can be enchanted from start to finish. For example, I make fabric pieced animals for a variety of purposes -- and every one is magickal in nature. From the fabric I choose to the herbs stuffed inside, to the chant, charm or sigil I create to go in the animal, to the timing of begining and finishing the project -- all has significance.
"Over the years," says Silver, "I've learned to be patient (which was very difficult for me) and use the energies around me to support my work -- this means I don't have a hard and fast schedule -- I observe the Universe and take my lead from there. I try to walk with the flow -- rather than against it. Once I let go of that impatient pressure -- I was amazed at the beauty in every moment."
