Q: “Through this album, what do you want to communicate to those listening to it?” T: “Questions like this are the most difficult. This album’s title is ‘My Voice’. From the chorus, it’s only filled with my voice, and I put in an abundance of emotion when I was working on it. Personally, I believe that fans will recognize that emotions like that. I hope you will listen to it in the most comfortable position. Considering my records will come out countlessly going forward.”
For a long time, bay leaves have been associated with divination & visions, and have been bestowed upon people as a symbol of triumph or achievement. In my craft, I harness the power of bay leaves to help grant wishes and focus intent.
How: when you use a bay leaf to make a wish, the whole process feels like pure magic. Write the wish or the target of your intent onto the leaf, then dip it into a candle flame until it is lit (only until it is lit! remove it once a flame starts!). Bay leaves burn with a really unique type of flame. It crackles and sings, and in my experience, doesn’t produce much smoke. It’s even better to do at night, in a dimly lit room, because the flame of the bay leaf takes on a life of its own.
As the bay leaf burns, the power of your wish or the focus of your intent is released into the air (to your deities, the spirits, the universe, or whomever you send your hopes to).
When burning the leaf: not all leaves burn equally! Some only singe a little, some will burn halfway then stop, and others will get entirely engulfed by the flame, leaving nothing but charred remnants. In my experience, each type of burning has a meaning to it. If the leaf burns entirely, the wish/intent is pure and has the best possibility of coming true. A leaf that only burns half way means just that - there is only a 50/50 chance of the desired outcome becoming a possibility. And when the fire only singes a small portion of the leaf, then goes out, the wish/intent is not something that is within your control. This does not mean the wish/intent won’t come true, it just means that what happens is up to the universe, not you.
Using bay leaves in this manner is a quick way to get your intent out into the world, and is perfect for witches who have little time for more complex rituals or spells <3
Dear Park Jimin, you have become a huge inspiration to me over the past year. You’ve taught me how to stay strong even when times are rough. You taught me that there is always a silver lining in hard times. You never fail to make me laugh or smile. I apprecitate you more and more each day and since day one i’ve always cherished you. I love you from the bottom of my heart Jimin. I hope you have a magical day and I hope that all your wishes come true. Happy birthday! 95.10.13
I keep every story comment and every Kudos email from Ao3.
That one click per reader is a good thing. I’m blessed that they come regularly, nearly every day. It gives me a lift to see a new person leave kudos on more than one of my stories. I ‘SQUEE’ and say, for instance, “Hey there, ClockWeasel. Welcome! Thank you for all the love! I wish I could hug you right now.” :) It tells me they liked one of my stories enough that they looked for more from me.
It makes me want to finish WIPS and write more stories.
So, yeah, comments and reblogs are AMAZING. It’s a dream come true to read a thoughtful question or insight RE a story that I put thought and time and effort into.
But, Kudos matter, too.
Thank you to every reader who has given me the gift of Kudos!
