|Witchcraft and magick are both practices and philosophies that rely on healthy levels of self-awareness. When we can see our own intentions and motivations clearly, we can more easily perceive those of other people. This, in turn, increases objective psychic awareness and empathic discretion.
To help increase self-awareness, situate yourself in a ritual space. Perform a new moon esbat ceremony. If you are new to practicing the Craft, simply research various methods in books that explore the mysteries of the dark moon.
At the height of your personal ceremony, put some red sandalwood powder in a dish and mix it into a paste using water or mineral oil. Apply this to your Ajna chakra(brow), and visualize your third-eye chakra growing with awareness while the moon begins its waxing cycle.
