“Letting Go” Jar

Something to put your guilts, fears and hiccups into. Draws away their power, cleanses them, and protects you. Very soothing.

- empty jar
- epsom salt
- turquoise stones (could use black stones too)
- lavender oil
- problems written on scraps of paper
– put the lid on tightly and shake –

Most spells like this say to bury the jar or hide it in your closet - but that’s the opposite of what you want to do with your problems. It’s sealed, put it on your shelf if you want and add to it/shake it whenever. Looking at it should remind you you’re so much bigger than those problems; you’ve let go of them.

Hello again, everyone!

This is my second spell jar blog post of the day and it’s one that was requested a little while ago, and was also one of the first spell jars I came up with myself.

This is the Little Bottle Of Peace which does exactly what it says on the tin.

When life is getting too busy and I start to find everything stressful, it helps me a lot to have something calm to focus on and centre myself.

I only hope it can help some of you too.

The ingredients you need to make this jar are:

  • Rosemary - for love, long life, happiness
  • Marjoram - for harmony, peace, tranquillity
  • Cloves - for healing
  • Lavender - for dispelling depression, and for healing and peace
  • Sandalwood oil - for meditation

I sealed the jar with blue bluebell-scented wax.

I chose blue wax because it symbolises freedom, sensitivity, and faith.

I chose candles that were bluebell-scented because bluebells symbolise humility and constancy.

The blue glitter was a bonus because, quite frankly, I don’t think glitter has ever made anything worse before. Also it’s very, very pretty. Who doesn’t love blue glitter?

If anyone tries making this spell jar, I’d love to see it. Please tag me in it because it would make me so happy!

Thank you for your support and I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Also, if anyone has any requests for spell jars, please send them over to me!

Serendipitous Fate 

Chapter 23 - Unofficial Preview (spoilers)

The most rational thing that Marinette could figure was that she was dreaming. Or maybe even in the midst of a nightmare. Yes, a nightmare. That was the only conclusion that made sense.

Yet, it was the little things that contradicted what she would like to think was certainty. The cool feeling of the porcelain toilet lid seeping through her shorts and searing her skin like a burn. The familiar grain of the hardwood floor beneath her feet. The soft murmur of voices in the other room. But what was most jarring was the too-close sound of scissors shearing through hair. It wasn’t consistent like everything else. It stabbed through her ears like a dull, choppy blade—like being sick with the flu only to be shaken every few seconds.

She wanted it to end, but was afraid that if she said anything, she’d be forced to recognize what was real. So, instead, she stared at the floor as chunks of black hair fell softly down around her feet, the weight gradually lifting from her head with each sharp, grating slice of the scissors.

Her mother’s hands were gentle as they sifted through her hair, evening the strands and snipping at flyaways. Until, finally, the shearing stopped.

Finally, Marinette could close her eyes and convince herself that none of it was real.           

That everything was fine.

“How does it look?” Her mother’s voice, though even and calm, was nearly as jarring as the scissors had been. Marinette snapped her eyes open to see that a hand mirror was being held out in front of her.

Out of expected habit—because her body knew motions well enough to substitute for her lagging brain—she reached up and took the mirror, before holding it up so she could see the reflection of the back of her head in the large bathroom vanity.

“It looks fine,” she replied, voice rough from misuse. No more pigtails. Though her heavy bangs remained, the back and sides of her hair had been trimmed within millimeters of her head, so as to even out where Queen Bee as cut away the strands during their battle.

Queen Bee… The battle…

Marinette didn’t want to think about it.

She wasn’t too torn up over the loss of her hair—she’d had short hair before. Not this short, but it’d grow back. There were worse things, after all.

“Marinette,” her mother said softly, touching her shoulder. She sat down on the edge of the tub a moment later, so they were facing one another. “Are you alright?”

She didn’t want to talk about it. She didn’t want to think about it.

Changing the subject to anything else was better.

“You were Ladybug before I was, right?” she asked, despite already knowing the answer

Sabine’s hold tensed on her shoulder, before her hand fell away. Much like her gaze did, becoming distant as she peered to the side.

“I was. But that… was a long time ago.”

“You’ve known I was Ladybug this whole time,” she determined.

“I realized it shortly after your first encounter with Hawkmoth, yes. I’d know those earrings anywhere. And the ring too.” She took a deep breath. “I knew Adrien was Chat Noir the first time I met him.”

Which was before Marinette had known.

“The miraculouses extend their users lifespans,” Marinette went on. “How old are you?”

“Much older than I look,” Sabine replied, finally looking back at her daughter and able to wear a small smile. Yet, Marinette said nothing, and so Sabine gave in. “I turned 97 this year, one year younger than Gabriel. I was Ladybug for most of my life.”

“Is that how you and Mr. Agreste know one another?”

“Yes. Gabriel is… a very old friend. We fought together during World War II, myself, him, and… And we stayed together for many years after, the three of us. Then the four of us.” Reaching up, she touched her forehead, looking wearied. “Thinking so far back really makes me feel my age.”

“I’m sorry.”

“Don’t be.” Reaching out, Sabine patted her knee. “I’m not nearly as old as some.”

A Calming Emotional-Protection Bottle

Purpose: A quick spell to bring calm, emotional harmony and energy protection for a pack member who is having a lot going on in their lives this week.

Contents:

- Calm Sigil (on the green paper), charged with intent

- Protection Sigil (on the green paper), charged with intent

- Nag Champa incense filled the bottle before i got started: a stress buster, harmonizer

- Basil

- White Sage

- Salt

- Sealed with green and white wax.

I sent the recipient a photo of this spell bottle who said the sun literally burst thru the clouds and their favorite song came on as soon as they saw the photo. Energy and Intent do make differences.

🍃 Calming Protection Spell Jar 🍃
So this is my first Spell Jar and I whipped it up for my mate.
▪Sea Salt
▪Rosemary
▪Thyme
▪Chamomile
▪Cinnamon
▪Basil
▪Cloves (one for each letter of her name)
▪Mint (because I feel it’s cool and calm)
▪Tied with light blue string because I associate the colour with calmness and her as a person and I wanted to figuratively “tie” this to her.

☆Important☆
I didn’t really measure anything out, unfortunately my brain is very chaotic and so my craft is going to be quite similar… I just added ingredients until it felt right.

Whilst I added ingredients I concentrated on my intent and what I wanted as an outcome. It’s best to feel calm as you make this.

On Glitter Jars

A couple of tips I’ve learned since making mine and Emily’s (because I scrolled through the tag and there were a lot of recipes to try and it took me six goes to get my first one right!)

  • Buy lots of glitter. You may have beginner’s luck, like some people, but it is better to be safe than sorry. Buy enough material to fail at the first jar if necessary. 
  • Vegetable oil did not work for me though I recognise that it does work for some people. I used glitter glue and glitter and water.
  • Add the water in parts. Alternate with stirring. Stir well. You want the water to mix with whatever you’re thickening it with (oil, glue, glitter glue, etc). 
  • Use boiling water. Or you will have glittery goopy clumps.

Lots of Love

anonymous asked:

hi, i come to you because i am currently writing a paper for college and seem to have the worst luck ever, my computer already broke down two times and my determination is going down by the minute. do you know any spells to help my situation?

Creativity, Energy and Motivation

Concentration, Clarity and Study

Anti-Anxiety and Stress Relief

Courage and Confidence

@natural-magics is my favorite place for spells which is why she is linked in my faq. I do hope this helps you out, sweetheart.

anonymous asked:

Do you mind explaining to me how you make a glitter jar? I reeeeeally want to make one.

Most definitely! A glitter jar (I’ve also heard it called a “calm” or “mind” jar) is a tool that you can use when you’re feeling overwhelmed, stressed, anxious, or you just need to collect your thoughts. Or it can be a fun craft to do with friends. Whatevs!

There are a lot of great resources online, but here is the method I used:

Supplies:
Mason Jar
Glitter (see first step)
Water

1. Assemble the glitttaaaaa. I went to the arts and crafts section of a local store and went wild. I think it’s good to get a variety of glitter sizes. Be sure to pick up some fine glitter if it’s available. This is the glitter that will linger and really make your jar feel ~magical~

If desired, you can add other crafty things to your jar. I found gold star confetti and gold glass beads, and it’s cool to see them floating around!

2. To use glitter glue or to not. Some people say it’s not worth the hassle, but I think glitter glue is an important addition. You’ll have to use hot water to break down the glitter glue and then stir!

3. Mix it all together. So, in your jar you should have lots-o-glitter and things, glitter glue-no-mo’, and water. *Depending on what color you want your glitter jar to be, you can use food coloring. My glitter jar is gold, and I didn’t know if I would like yellow food coloring in it.

Some notes:
*Your glitter jar might have a lot of foam at the top. This is okay, and it goes away after a bit.
*Add all of the fine glitter you want, but I would caution you on how much of the bigger glitter you use. It just kinda hangs out at the bottom and doesn’t do much swirling.
*Decorate your jar - there’s really no right or wrong way to do this!


Seal tight and shake away, darling. This is a very positive way to collect your thoughts. Let me know if you have any questions or anything else!

here’s a fun diy: jellyfish in a bottle! these are super simple and quick to make, and you can use whatever size/shape container or food colouring you like! just make sure the lid is tight fitting. (you can also put a little super glue on the rim of the bottle before screwing on the lid to make a seal)
