Clear Veil

                                                  How to Open the Veil

The Veil is what separates our physical realm from the spirit world. By opening it, we’re able to communicate more freely with spirits. Essentially, you’ll be making a door and opening it in order to reach the spirit realm. 

Disclaimer: I’m not an expert at this, please don’t take my word as the final say. I just started practicing this technique and was taught by a close friend. Always be safe when you practice because if you’re not careful, you can get into some shit. I’m writing this post by popular demand. 

STEP 1: BE SAFE. The picture above is a little preview of the layout I used in my own dorm room. It’s hard to see, but I first drew a chalk circle and sprinkled black salt all along the edges of said circle. I also put four crystals at each end to mark it. Why do I have so much shit everywhere?? Because I don’t want anything to come through the door I created and cause problems. This circle keeps unwanted spirits out. (Granted, you don’t have to use as many things as I did. I find that a physical circle is just easier to visualize.) You can also use candles or anything else that works for you!

STEP 2: MARK THE DOOR. I used sun and moon candle holders with electric candles in them (since I live in a dorm and can’t use real candles). I set them apart from each other, like I was making, well, a door. Then I used some Super-Moon water to draw a line between the two candle holders to amplify my energy. Finally, I also sprinkled a line of black salt to stop unwanted and harmful spirits from coming through the door. 

STEP 3: RELAX. Get into the state of mind you need to be in to do witchy stuff. Meditation, grounding, singing–whatever you need to do to access your energy. 

STEP 4: STRETCH YOUR ENERGY. Whenever you feel ready, slowly pool energy into you palms. Then push it through the marked entrance where your door is going to be, imagining it as a thread, string, or cord connecting to the spirit realm. This might be difficult, especially if the veil isn’t exactly thin where you’re at. You may feel your energy bounce back, or that you’re hitting a wall. If you do, don’t worry! You can always pull back, gather your energy, and try again. 

STEP 5: CREATE A BRIDGE. You’ll know the moment when your energy connects to the spirit realm. It feels different for every person–for me, it’s almost like this tug in my gut and the feeling of a thread connecting my hands and body to something else. Once you feel that, it’s really up to you on how you want to create the bridge! For me, what works best is when I imagine myself walking across the thread of my energy towards the spirit realm. As I walk, my energy begins to create the bridge. There might be another door on the other side once you cross the bridge (it’s really up to how you visualize). If there is, open it. 

STEP 6: OPEN THE DOOR. Once you’ve made the bridge, feel and hold on to that connection. Then, imagine a door leading to the bridge through the physical boundaries you created earlier. This door can look however you like–whatever’s easiest for you to imagine! Then, use your energy to pry open the door. After that…

Congrats! You’ve successfully opened a door to the spirit realm! You should be able to feel the difference in energies. It’s kind of hard to explain how it feels–almost like this vast, empty expanse and the chattering of lots of different spirits floating around. 

When you’re done…

CLOSE THE DOOR. If you invited any spirits in to chat, say goodbye to the spirit(s) that you communicated with and ask them to leave. Make sure they leave before you close the door. If they refuse to, you might have to force them via your own energy (obviously, this is in the worst of situations. Try not to be rude if possible!). We’ve had to do this before and it’s not the most pleasant thing (haha). 

To close the door, pull your energy out from the spirit realm. Imagine that bridge you created crumbling, until you can no longer feel that connection. Once you’re out, close the door, seal it up, and do anything else that feels necessary in order to break the opening. For me, I usually make a breaking motion with my hands to signify the cut-off connection. You can chant or say an incantation if you like as well. This is important, because you definitely don’t want to leave a door open for spirit to come through willy nilly!  

                                                          Other Info

  • PLEASE BE CAREFUL!! If you’re not cautious, some bad spirits might be able to get through and that’s never fun. If possible, try this first with someone else (preferably someone who knows more of what they’re doing). If you can’t, make sure you have multiple backups, wards, and other witchy things to keep bad spirits at bay. 
  • If you want to invite a spirit to chat, it’s probably a good idea to have an offering around, just to be polite. Tarot cards, pendulums, etc. are pretty awesome tools to use if you’re not great at telepathic communication!
  • Take everything spirits say with a grain of salt. They can lie just like people. 

I hope this was helpful to those that asked! If anyone wants to add anything, feel free to. I’m by no means an expert, so if someone wants to add their expertise advise please do! If something doesn’t feel right, go with your gut–never do something you’re not comfortable with. 

Be safe, fellow spirit workers and witches!

Author’s note: shout out to dreammoods for being there for me! this is my second rewrite of this fic bc my previous idea was ://. this is like :/ with the addition of fluff. idk im always critical of my stuff lmao srry yall. This is my first Bucky Barnes fic?? WOW Y’ALL I LUV BUCKY W/ ALL MY HEART YET I NEVER …PUBLISHED A FIC ABOUT HIM?

It seemed like a typical romance movie or book where you find yourself having a crush on your neighbor. You dream about a life that could be but are far too shy to even suggest a hint of romance. You call yourself a hopeless romantic and, boy, are you!

Sometimes you take a peep through the peephole when you hear a noise from outside your door to see your neighbor, Bucky, walk into his apartment. You know it’s stupid, your friends tell you all the time, but you can’t bring yourself to go beyond what you’ve already said to him. Your friends are practically waiting for your wedding registry to go live on Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

Hercules: Hades [ENFJ]

UNOFFICIAL TYPING by howtotallyamazing

Extroverted Feeling (Fe): No one has to guess how Hades feels about anything and everything. He makes his distaste towards his brother, Zeus, abundantly clear throughly thinly veiled sarcastic remarks and his entire plan to defeat Zeus. He’s prone to fits of rage including literally bursting into flames when he’s defeated by an opponent like Hercules. A fast talker, Hades is good at reading people and forcing their hand by preying on their insecurities and what they love the most. If he weren’t so evil, he’d actually be charming.

Introverted Intuition (Ni): Thanks to the fates, Hades is able to carry out a plan that’ll take eighteen years to unfold and is more than willing and ready to figure out what he needs to complete his plan to take over Mount Olympus to ensure that it’ll go off without a hitch. He’s able to strategize and get people on his side, such as the Titans who were put there by Zeus, and by getting Pain and Panic to take care of Hercules and Meg to help bargain and get other people on his side.

Extroverted Sensing (Se): Most of Hades’ plans are acted out by those around him but he does get his hands dirty now and then. He seizes opportunities when they come his way, such as using the fates to tell him the future about how he can overtake Mount Olympus, by constantly trying to throw everything and the kitchen sink at Hercules so he’ll no longer be a nuisance, like that Hydra of his, or jumping on Hercules’ deal of swapping his life for Meg’s because he’s the “son of his arch rival”. Hades enjoys the spectacle of a battle, watching it with excitement and tends to express his anger physically as well as vocally.

Introverted Thinking (Ti): Hades is actually quite good at getting himself out of a bind. He can easily answer the question on how to kill a god - you can’t, they’re immortal - so his solution is for Pain and Panic to turn Hercules mortal so he won’t thwart his plan although they ultimately fail. When Meg protests that she doesn’t want to hurt Hercules, he offers her the one thing she wants: her freedom. His ideas are good in theory, like taking Hercules’ deal for him to “switch places with Meg”, but they don’t always work out in the long run. Hades is known for his signature sarcastic quips and utilizes his inferior Ti often. 

Her Last Vow

AN: OK, the response I got for my story ‘Light’ was absolutely unbelievable; seriously I was not expecting that. Thank you to everyone who liked, reblogged and left lovely comments; you’re all amazing. This idea came while I was writing it, plus I wanted to try and explore Eurus’ character a little more. I hope you like it. Ask box is open to requests and prompts.

Requests are open.


It’s not easy when life decides to play tricks with your self-control. It’s not easy when you see the worst of you several times in a day, and it’s certainly not easy when you’re losing yourself to no one but… Your own self.

Life has ups and downs, and still, when you have more downs than ups, no good can come from your mind. You can’t see clear through that veil of sorrow and sadness that covers your entire being. Being good is not only uncommon, it’s also not enough.
