                                                  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!

  • 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!

Okay, new cosplay rule:

I have to be a fan of something or want to cosplay it for at least a month before I decide to make the costume

and

I won’t decide on any costumes shorter than a month out from the con (except in special circumstances, like surprise guest announcements or groups getting organized, and only when I know I have time to throw it together quickly)

hey, so long story short: my personal life is shitty as fuck right now, and i honestly haven’t been this low since december. with that being said, i’m going to take the weekend and this last week of march to…mull things over, i guess. there’s a lot going on, and i haven’t had enough time to process it all fully, let alone figure out how to ‘ fix ‘ things.

i know that i’ve had my bouts of lows in the past and that those have usually resulted in me becoming grossly inactive and coming back…but also not really at the same time…but i feel as though this time will be different. i really like it here, and i really like you guys, so i will come back, and i’ll make a genuine effort to make my returned presence here as constant as possible like i ( kinda ) have been these past few weeks…

…for now, however, i’m signing off. i’ll be on snapchat ( frickthepopo ) and discord ( Memecita#9085 ) if you wish to keep in touch, so hmu there. i’m so, so, so sorry that this is happening, but i’ll try to bounce back as soon as possible. thank you so much for understanding nonetheless, and i’ll catch y’all whenever. please take care of yourselves.♥

Okay some shit has been going down in the Ninjago fandom lately

Like holy shit, if I have to be honest, I say the Ninjago fandom is the best place to be if you want to see crazy ass events going down.

Like now, Lloyd will probably get a love interest??? And his voice actor is leaving???? Holy shit.

Everyone please calm down, I know this is crazy news, and I don’t like those news too. But tbh, I kinda think it’s actually not gonna happen.
But if it does happen, we need to stay together. Unless by a miracle, it is not preventable if it happens.

We are a fandom, we need to be there for each other, we can survive.

After all, life is full of surprises, huh?

anonymous asked:

help! Big bang is soon and my dialogue is bad :(

babe…..like i honestly am so down for big bang commiseration because this weekend instead of emailing in my draft, i completely scrapped my ridiculously high concept 45k word long first HALF of a draft of a dystopia AU that just was straight up not working. and i’m down to talk about dialogue because my new big bang fic is just a series of conversations bc that’s the only thing i like. 

anyway if dialogue is your biggest issue: you’re in luck! dialogue is secretly pretty simple to put together and you can change it until pretty much last minute without having to drastically alter your plot.

advice under the cut:
