As I prepare to start a new life after the Army and after a second marriage, I find myself reflecting a great deal on my past, both this life and lives previous. I won't claim to know all the details of my past lives, because that would be false, and no one could possibly know everything. At any rate, I decided to explore paganism about 13 years ago. 6 years ago, I met my mentor Marty, a Native American Crystal magician. I learned a great deal from that man before he passed, and I am grateful to have known him. Simply by helping me find my own energy and the earth's energy stored in crystals, my workings have become ten-fold more effective and powerful. I digress, my apologies, I am leading up to something. As I look back on magic that I have done, it bears striking similarities to wierd stuff that happens around me all the time, and has happened around me since I can remember. The bits and pieces I remember from past lives are normally of wierd things that have happened that I still can't explain, and probably never will be able to. My question is this: Is it possible to cast by accident? Has this ever happened to you? Is it normal for that to happen to/around anyone?
