I too am making my first wand.  I found a stick from a beautiful Maple tree (left there just for me  ;)).  I did not know about the length of the wand that Old Ghost posted!  I will have to dig my stick up to measure it as I buried it in the earth for a bit.  I think I will leave mine natural like Draconis Rex did.  I looked up the magical property of Maple Trees (below) and like the "acquiring knowledge" aspect.


Maple has both Feminine and Masculine energy. Libra and Virgo consider this tree to be sacred. Associated with the elements of Spirit and Water. The great horned owl is the sacred bird of this tree.

Magical Properties: Some cultures primarily use Maple wands for spiritual healing. Maple is a traveler's wood. DragonOak recommends maple because it enhances intellectual pursuits, acquiring knowledge, and communication. Spells concerning art, beauty, binding, and abundance should consider using this wood. The gypsies believe Maple brings gold and that eating the seeds draws love.

I believe every place has a soul. Every building, and house. But to be fair to my bookstore situation, I did not feel negativity from people, or the place. The books on the otherhand may have had a hand in it though. I was standing in front of the used book section when all my symptoms hightened massively.
If you were in front of used books, there may have been some that had mildew or mold on them from having been stored in damp areas. You may have had a reaction to that.
I also commented about potential dust being an as well.

Okay Jam..... No, I wasn't born a Wiccan. I was born a Protestant, to a Mother who was brought up Plymouth Brethren and what my Fathers beliefs were I'm not entirely sure. 

I'm not a Wiccan now, but I am very much a Pagan.
I was born into a christian family aswell. Nowadays i just do what i feel like to try and do my best at stuff i am good at, not a believer but cool to hear about the past and how it lead to today though. And thanks for the explanation notes ^^

Thank you, thank you.  This topic can be very controversial and other opinions are welcome. But I'd have to maintain that although the possibility of being born a witch is defensible (though I don't think so!) it isn't possible to be born Wiccan.

Leryssa: no, I've never been into a Seventh-Day Adventist church, so I really couldn't make a fair comment.

A personal anecdote: while in Mexico my wife and I befriended a young woman with a 4-year-old daughter, a 2-year-old son who was born without a femur in one leg, and a newborn baby girl. Her partner - a Mexican guy with an alcohol and drugs problem, and who has been seriously violent with her in the past but who is trying valiantly to turn his life around, was in jail at the time, having stolen some items to sell to try to support his family as he couldn't find work. She was pretty desperate - her mother had just kicked her and her children out. We helped as we were able, but we're far from wealthy. She expressed a wish to go to the nearby Jehovah's Witnesses church, so we took her there.

Now, I've never cared for JWs, especially those who evangelize door-to-door - I usually just say "Sorry, I'm not interested," and close the door, and to me their beliefs seem, frankly, bonkers - but those people at the church turned out to be some of the kindest, most helpful, most generous-hearted people you'd ever wish to meet. They took her in, helped her to find a place to live, raised money for her..... It altered my perceptions, I can tell you; I was impressed.

Divine grace can express itself through any kind of channel; Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Pagan, Hindu, Atheist, Discordian.... Sometimes it takes another person's suffering to bring it out. But it's there.

Blessed Be everyone,

Alchymist.
