QUESTION - Can a person do weather magic and love spells without trying? When I was in grade school I used to "play" with the wind all the time. I would ask it to wiggle trees or cool me off, I quite frequently asked it to shut doors for me. I used to spend a lot of time outdoors and at the time I thought the wind listened to me because it was my friend but I just recently learned that witches can "whistle a wind" and influence the weather. I also used to wish very hard that it would rain when I was sad because the rain calmed me... and there has almost never been a time where it hasn't rained when I'm sad. I also used to use, what I now know is a pendulum, quite frequently... so I was just wondering how I did these things? Or better how I KNEW to do these things...
I'm 90% sure my great grandmother and my mother are witches... or empaths? They never told me but they always just knew things. I'm not sure if these things just came naturally to me because they are witches? I don't know. I thought I was crazy so I looked up if it was possible to "play with the wind" and that's how I stumbled deeper into the world of witchcraft. So if I could do these things without being fully aware/having any knowledge of what I was doing could I have also cast a love spell? I fell in love with this boy in middle school and he had no interest in me. Every night I prayed or wished really hard that he would like me. After about 2 weeks he just randomly told me he loved me? We hardly spoke or were even friends... but flash forward 6 years and we're happily married with two babies... I know he loves me from his own heart now but is it possible I could have accidentally sparked his love for me? I told him how I was learning more about witchcraft and how I had unknowingly done some witchy things and his only words "is THAT why I randomly fell in love with you one day!?" Like he's been trying to figure it out for years XD bless his heart.
ANSWER - Yes, you can sometimes control/manipulate the weather. In certain Witchcraft Traditions there is also mention of Elemental Magic, where witches work with the elements within their castings/rituals. The most popular Elements seem to be Water, Air and Fire (not so much of Earth, which is a shame as I love working with the Earth Element when planting/burying my castings) there are also quite a few accounts floating around on the internet very similar to yours, where people mentioned they were able to manipulate the weather when they were younger, mainly when they were upset, angry or scared, so it got me thinking that perhaps weather magic is closely tied in with emotions .
One of the accounts I encountered in reading round this subject was about a lady who recalled being a teenager, and very upset over something that had happened with a family member. She told of how she was staring into the flames of the fireplace as they were starting to die down, thinking about everything that had happened when, all of sudden, the flames got bigger, as if somebody had put more firelighters onto the blaze. She also recalled how immediately after this happened that she felt calmer, as if all the emotions she had been feeling had just gone.
This makes me wonder if all this manipulating of the weather/Elements is indeed tied in with peoples emotions and is somehow a release of those emotions. Pretty much all the information I could find onthe subject of weather magic was about people who were emotional at the time of the incidents yet who all stated that after their manipulation of weather they felt so much more calm and grounded.
To answer your first part of your question, yes it is totally viable that you can work with the Air element as and when you choose to. I would seriously suggest researching into working with Elements (if you haven't already), to see what you can find and also to see if there are ways that you can control it instead of it just happening, so to speak. I have also found this subject fascinating so I will also be having a good nosy into it to see what I can find to add to my Elements part of my Book of Shadows.
With regards to the Love spell part, I don't actively practice Love spells as I personally believe they go against a person's free will, as the spell 'makes' somebody fall in love with another person,. With your partner, I honestly believe that this is a different matter to a love spell....as you say you didn't actually cast any spells or anything, you just 'prayed or wished really hard' for him to love you etc. This, to me, sounds more along the lines of Manifestation than an actual love spell. You were clearly putting it out into the Universe that you wanted to be with your partner and for it to happen...without you casting ANY spell or ritual. To me that is nothing to do with magic and everything to do with Fate/Destiny. If your partner wasn't supposed to fall in love with you, he wouldn't have. Maybe when you were wishing for it to happen, you just gave the universe the green light to make it happen, and then the universe also gave him a little nudge at his end to realise he wanted to be with you too. Like that whole scenario of 'right person right timing' where the Universe saw it was all lining up perfectly and helped to make it happen! (you cant beat a good old bit of serendipity in your life)
I am so happy that it has all worked out for you the way that it has and I hope you manage to find out more about your gifts (which you evidently have) and ways to learn to use them within your everyday life.
