Have you ever lost yourself in a kiss? I mean pure psychedelic inebriation. Not just lustful petting but transcendental metamorphosis when you became aware that the greatness of this being was breathing into you. Licking the sides and corners of your mouth, like sealing a thousand fleshy envelopes filled with the essence of your passionate being and then opened by the same mouth and delivered back to you, over and over again—the first kiss of the rest of your life. A kiss that confirms that the universe is aligned, that the world’s greatest resource is love, and maybe even that God is a woman.
—  Saul Williams, from the introduction of , said the shotgun to the head

It’s called the baker effect, and it works in the same way you remember the name of a new musician whose song makes a strong impression on you. 

It’s also the reason why a customer service professional will tell you they “never forget a client,” but they can’t remember your name when you meet them at a party. 

If you don’t want to give your occupation, a memorable detail should be sufficient.

Powder Spells: An Introduction, and Powdered Luck

Image Credit: Juniper Wildwalk (post author) (BY-SA licence)

Sometimes, brewing a potion or constructing an altar is either impractical, expensive, or simply impossible. In those situations, it’s often possible to create a simple powder spell that will perform the desired action, and is also transferrable between people if you want to make the spell for someone else or give it to them as a gift.

What is a powder spell?

A powder spell is a piece of magick that uses the mixing together of different powdered ingredients to create a magickal powder. This powder can then be use as a form of incense in some cases, but more commonly is carried around in a pendant or is sprinkled around a doorway, on an object, or even on a person or animal you want to imbue with magickal properties.

Powdered Luck

This powder spell will bring luck to all those who use it. There are two versions – the one with pennyroyal, and the one with peppermint.

The pennyroyal spell is more potent, but cannot be consumed or burnt! Pennyroyal is extremely poisonous, and could seriously injure those who inhale the smoke, consume the herb, or sometimes even touch it if they have an allergy. The pennyroyal version should be considered pendant and altar-only. Do not use it on or around living things, and never set it on fire!

The peppermint spell is still quite strong, but not as strong as the pennyroyal version. However, it CAN be consumed and it is safe to burn, and so I recommend crafting this version unless you specifically need pennyroyal.

You will require:

  • 1 part dried, powdered peppermint OR pennyroyal
  • 1 part ground black pepper
  • 1 part cinnamon
  • 1 part fresh soil
  • 1 part sugar
  • 1 part ground nutmeg

Mix your powders together within a pot or bag, and push a little bit of magick inside the pouch to kickstart the reaction. Think of the magick you give it as being the seed you plant into the Earth, and the magick you get out as the harvest.



A note about powder spell history

Powder spells are a combination of European and African/Hoodoo traditions, and as such you must respect that a part of this practice came from another culture. However, since it has ALSO been an element of European practices, those witches who practice European witchcraft can feel free to use powder spells, provided they’re not appropriating original Hoodoo recipes without permission. Please respect original Hoodoo spells and their workers by refraining from appropriating old recipes.

Ok guys. This is a really important post for me. Each day I try to improve my art, and sometimes, well, it does not work that much x)

But since the first day I discovered the Silmarillion, I am sure of one thing about my art : I want to adapt the  whole Silmarillion in comic (web and books). I want to draw ALL THE STORY. This book became far more than a book for me… It is a dream for me to turn it into a comic. But, you know, during these last months, I doubted… I feared. I thought “Girl, are you stupid ? You don’t have the skills for doin’ such a thing ! You’ll never manage to do that… !” But I received kind messages, support, nice taggs, and, well. I’m not afraid anymore. Those 4 pics are an introduction of the comic I want to create. I began with the end of The Lord of the Rings, when Frodo travels to Valinor, and I imagined him asking to Galadriel to tell her story. The story of how it all began…

So. For now, I’m saving some money to have a better graphic tablet. And during this time, I’ll work on the firsts chapters of the comic as sketches.

Thanks a lot if you had the courage to read all of this !! Thanks a LOT !

Ok so i began to do it, here’s the link to the comic blog : The Silmarillion comic ! :)

Poetry approached me in that chaos of raw inverted power and leaned over and tapped me on the shoulder, said, “You need to learn how to listen, you need grace, you need to learn how to speak. You’re coming with me.” I did not walk off into the sunset with poetry, or hit the town with a blaze of gunfire with poetry guarding my back. Rather, the journey toward poetry worked exactly as the process of writing a poem. It started from the inside out, then turned back in to complete a movement. And then on and on in the manner of a ripple in water, a song in the air.
