Divination Drinks: Teas to Aid in Divining

Originally posted by ofallingstar

Divination in all of its forms (tarot reading, tasseomancy; palmistry; pendulums, etc,.), can be quite exhausting and require large amounts of energy. These teas and tea blends will aid you in divining by enhancing your psychic power, and/or boosting your energy.


Tea Blends:

Psychic Tea (Scott Cunningham)

  • 3 parts Rose Petals
  • 1 part Cinnamon
  • 2 parts Yarrow

Brew the tea, strain it and drink a cup before performing any form of divination as this tea enhances psychic awareness.

Tea for Divination (Moura)

  • 1 tbsp China black tea
  • 2 tbsp Lemon Balm
  • 1 tbsp Rose Hips
  • 1 tbsp Mugwort*

Brew the tea, strain it and drink either before divination or sip during/throughout.

Teas:

Jasmine Tea

  • Jasmine is said to induce prophetic dreams, which can aid in the growth of psychic power and psychic awareness making this tea a good choice of drink to be had before divining. 
  • Drink 1 cup of this naturally sweet and fragrant tea before sleeping the night before you wish to divine.

Vanilla Tea

  • You can brew your own or buy ready-made Vanilla tea/tea bags. Vanilla enhances psychic ability and allows the benefits of this enhancement to be better felt and absorbed. 
  • Drink Vanilla tea before and during any divination work to open yourself up and be more receptive.

Peppermint Tea

  • Peppermint tea heightens your psychic sensitivity, as well as working to clear the mind and sharpen focus. It can also be used to cleanse the mind and body of any negative energies beforehand.
  • This tea should be consumed before any psychic or divination based activities. 

Some Other Things to Consider:

Some herbal tea blends may not be to your taste but this can be remedied by adding honey to taste. 

Other herbs, such as Cinnamon, are used to add oomph to magick and can be added to tea blends and teas to do just that. If you don’t want to add pre-ground and grainy Cinnamon to your drinks, you can use a Cinnamon stick to stir instead. This will add the oomph you’re after without altering the taste too much.
If you want to make your brew even more potent, stir clockwise. This adds positive energy to your tea.

Lemon and Rose Quartz Infused Water

After some time spent infusing my water, I have noticed the many benefits it has to offer for the mind and body! This infusion contains a couple slices of Lemon and a Rose Quartz. The benefits are endless, it’s literally a magickal potion in a bottle!

Properties and Benefits:

Lemon

The traditional drink of lemon and honey can be spiced up with ginger and garlic to make a potent brew for colds, coughs, and digestive disorders. Overall, this fruit improves resistance to infection due to it’s antioxidant, antiseptic, detoxifying, and nutritive properties. This specific lemon infused water is perfect for those seeking to cleanse and detoxify the mind and body. Lemon is rich in vitamin C which stimulates liver metabolism and can assist in strengthening the immune system.

Rose Quartz

This stone is well known to lower stress and tension in the heart which leads to assisting in steering clear of anger, jealousy, and resentment towards others. It aids in healing heart issues and disease associated with holding on to negative emotions. Rose Quartz, the “Love Stone” can be used to attract Love and strengthen self-love within oneself.

When I drink this infused water, I like to think of it as a little ritual for myself based on the properties it contains. Every sip is drank with intentions of detoxifying my mind and body of unwanted elements such as toxins and negativity. I visualize my heart Chakra opening up and a green light glowing and growing larger with each sip. Do this and you will see change in your mindset and how much more refreshed and positive you will feel!

Happy Healing!

Tips for Discreet College Witches

So I start college very soon, and along with packing, I’ve been doing a lot of witchy prepwork to make this school year more magical.

I’ve put together a list of tips for discreet dorm witches on how to add some subtle magic into your college life.

Cleansing:

  • Clean your room- sounds basic but you can’t clean a room spiritually if it isn’t clean physically.
  • Use wax melters or specially charmed air fresheners for specific intents to cleanse the room of bad energy. 
  • If your roommate doesn’t mind- play music. Picking songs with a specific intent will add positive energy to your room as the soundwaves fill the space. 

Protection: 

  • Sigils are your friend- they can be taped practically anywhere for discreet practice
  • If you want to be even more discreet, charge posters, paintings, or other wall hangings with protection or other intents. Hang them by doors and windows to keep positive energies in and negative out. 
  • Charm your room key to keep you and your possessions safe

General Tips: 

  • On move in day, give your roommate a small gift that you’ve blessed (a travel mug, something in your school colors, a new notebook, etc.). Not only is it a great icebreaker, but blessing the object will help keep the peace during stressful times. 
  • Get creative! Green witches can decorate with small plants like succulents, cosmic witches can hang twinkle lights or make glitter jars, and kitchen witches can make dozens of “mug spells”. 
  • Do as much prep work as you can before you move in. Draw and charge sigils, bless necklaces or clothing items. 
  • In the days leading up to move-in, cleanse your body, mind, and spirit. Do glamour and self love spells, drink lots of water, spend time on your craft and with family and friends. But most importantly, get some rest. This is an exciting and stressful time, and witchy things take a lot of energy from your already hectic schedule. 

Add your own college witchcraft tips-I’ll be posting a lot of them in the next few days. 

Blessed be! - Kate

Clean Up Your Act: A Shower Self-Hex

For me, showers are one of my best times to reflect and get ready for the rest of the day. I leave energized and ready to conquer whatever else I have left.

 But some times I don’t feel like doing anything. This is fine, when I don’t have anything really pressing to do. But right now, when I’ve got less than three weeks before I’m heading to work and college and responsibilities- I need to be focused and self-disciplined. 

And while I’m a big fan of traditional positive magic, sometimes you need to light a fire under your own ass- and this is an easy spell for that. 

You Will Need: 

  1. A candle/incense/wax melter- Use something that pays tribute to the element of fire. I prefer spicy scents or ones that ground. Pick what works for your intent.
  2. Paper and pen. 
  3. A place to shower
  4. Something to write with in the shower. Shower gel obviously works or washable markers. 

Optional:

  • A kick-ass playlist
  • Sigils to put in your shoes
  • A caffeinated beverage
  • A friend to hold you accountable 
  • Offerings to your deities for assistance. 

Step 1: 

Before you start, make sure your intent is clear. Write down exactly what it is you want to accomplish, and the steps you’re going to take to get there. Ex: If you need to meal plan for the week, step 1 might be figuring out what you already have in your kitchen. You can’t reach a goal if you don’t know how to get there. 

Step 2: 

Light your candle/incense/wax melter in the place where you need to get the most work done. Fire is energizing and propelling. Paying tribute to this element will help reignite the spark you need to get shit done. Be sure to practice proper fire safety. 

Step 3: 

While taking your shower, focus on distractions and excuses holding you back as you scrub, cleansing them from your mind and body. Use body wash or a marker to write a word of intent, a phrase, or a sigil on the walls. As the warm water hits it, the spell will charge and activate. 

Step 4: 

Get out of the shower and get moving. Other options for this spell include having a motivational playlist to blast, putting sigils for energy and motion inside your shoes, combining this hex with my Law of Inertia spell  or another energy boosting one, or leaving an offering to your deity in exchange for their help. The possibilities are endless. Try some non-magical means, by telling a friend that you have to do this thing, and ask them to check up on you. (My inbox is always open if you need to!)

A word of advice: 

I call this a hex because sometimes you have to channel negative energy towards something to get things done. For me, I have to be really strict with myself on occasion, but the important thing is to not be too harsh. You know yourself best, your own limitations and abilities. Sometimes you know are being lazy and could be doing more, and other times you are facing complications due to depression, chronic fatigue, or other issues you have no control over. Know when you need to push yourself and when you need to let yourself relax a little. It’s different for everyone, which is why I recommend really taking stock of the entire situation and circumstances before committing to a spell. 


I hope this helps you get moving and get everything done that you need to. Many blessings! - Kate

“I gave you my power.”

When you are done placing items observe them for a moment breathing deeply and focusing on the emotions these items represent Then take salt and make a circle around the items saying 

“You have no power over me any longer.”

When done observe the items again Absorb the truth of your freedom Breathe deeply exhaling all the toxins from your system Now gather the cloth at the corners and tie off the bundle with a red string and throw it in the trash.

summary: He’s always protecting you and the city, but who was protecting him?

You wish you could lay on your stomach, but the growing bump doesn’t allow you to, forcing you to lay on your back. You listen carefully, the sound of rain dancing in the streets and knocking on your window soothing you into a peaceful state of mind. There are people who would be annoyed with the sudden rain, but not you. You always welcomed the rain, finding great joy whenever the clouds and sky decided to grace your presence with it. If your immune system wasn’t weak right now, you’d probably be outside dancing under the droplets waiting for Bruce to come home, allowing it to cleanse your mind, soul, and body–allowing it to let you forget that one day, he might not come home.

“Baby,” there’s a soft whisper of a voice carrying into your bedroom from the hallway.

“Bruce?” He’s home early, you furrow your eyebrows but feel happy nonetheless to have your husband home. You sit up as a flash lights up your dark room, the sound of thunder following it. You whimper softly, having not expected the calm rain to turn into a harsh rainfall of a storm.

“Hey.” He moves quick, his arms wrapping around you and your growing stomach. “Hey, I got you.” He shields you from the lightning and thunder, his chest becoming your blindfold and his voice becoming your earplugs. “It’s okay, baby. I’m here. I’m here for you. For both of you.” He sounds tired, exhausted, but he’s trying to be strong for you and your peanut. Like always. Always carrying the weight of the world on his shoulders when he doesn’t have to.

He smells like wet grass and musky cologne, the one you had given him a year ago for his birthday, but most importantly like comfort. “I’m sorry,” you whisper into his damp clothes, clutching the material in your fists. You’re not sure why you’re apologizing or what you’re apologizing for, but it slips out like a droplet of rain running on glass.

“It’s okay,” he breathes into your hair, pressing a kiss to the spot. “It’s okay.”

You’d like to believe everything is okay–will be okay but you have to accept it might never be. Not when he’s out there every night trying to keep the city safe. And all you could do is wait.

Judgement: Reflection, Self Evaluation
Ruled by Saturn
Element: Earth
Colors of the day: Indigo, Violet, Black

Saturn rules over cycles and endings. With Saturn we are forced the review, accept, and move on. As the week comes to an end, today is a great day to face your fears, cleanse, and reflect with the card of Judgement underneath’s Saturn’s influence.

What or who do you need to let go of? What rituals or magick can I use to cleanse my mind, body, and space today and during this upcoming Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse? What major cycle of my life is ending? What bad habits or self destructive tendencies do I need to address? Do I have addictive behavior? How can I become closer to the ground element of Earth today?

anonymous asked:

Why is it considered to be disrespectful to smoke in front of a Hindu god tapestry? I saw a picture of a blonde girl smoking weed in front of Ganesh and someone commented under it how disrespectful that waS?????

Namaste,

It is disrespectful because it is a deed that Hinduism as a whole frowns upon. There is somewhat of a fashion going around linking narcotics to our Hindu Gods, and I agree that it is quite ignorant. Nowhere in current dharma does it permit devotees to consume alcohol, drugs or meat. You will find no temple where those things are practiced. You will find no true Hindu who participates in those things.

Narcotics and substances that inhibit the mind are just the opposite of what Sanatana Dharma teaches. The point of our dharma is to clear the mind, cleanse the body, purify the thoughts and see through the veil of ownership and individuality. If one reaches those sorts of thoughts under the influence of a substance, consider the realization not reached at all. Altering substances destroy the body, damaging the lungs, liver, brain and ability to think straight. They arise addiction, dependency and leave persons in a state where they disregard health and hygiene. 

Such is adharmic (against dharma).

I hope I’ve helped!

Jai Shiv Shankar!

I’m so excited and just a bit nervous for Ramadan 2017.. Last year’s Ramadan felt like a blur. I was fasting half the time and half the time I wasn’t. I was also in a bad spot both mentally and emotionally. Standing by my dad’s side along with the rest of my family throughout the last few months of his cancer journey and being there to walk him through the end of his life was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do..

This year, everything is just so different. I’m at a different place in my life. I’ve grown so much. I’m stronger emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. My dad’s not here anymore and his death tore me apart, but here I am putting myself back together. Some pieces I’ve had all along, some I’ve found along the way, and some I’m still finding along the way but I’m not scared anymore, I’m excited for what is to come. I’m happy about the person I am and all the things I’m working towards.

Ramadan this year is going to be quite the spiritual journey. I’m not very religious and I’ve always partaken in Ramadan, but this year it’s just different. Without having to worry about meal-prepping as much, and not eating and drinking throughout the day, it will allow me to focus more time on meditation, cleansing my mind/body/soul, detoxing, reading, growing and being more positive I have a wonderful feel that I am going to get so much out of my journey through Ramadan this year.

Only a few more days left until the start. Here I come Ramadan!!

CEREMONIAL MAGICK

CEREMONIAL MAGICK

Also called high or ritual magick, ceremonial magick evolved out of the teachings of early mystery schools in various parts of the world. Its practitioners are more likely to describe themselves as magicians than as witches. The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, an organization that formed in the latter part of the nineteenth century as a secret society, has greatly influenced this type of magick and its practice today. The group’s philosophy is founded on the Hebrew Qabalah and the doctrines of Hermes Trismegistus, and draws upon the belief systems of the Freemasons, Rosicrucians, Gnostics, and others.

More formalized and intellectualized than Wicca and other Pagan spiritual paths, ceremonial magick involves study of the Qabalah, astrology, alchemy, tarot, and many other subjects. It emphasizes the use of ritual and ceremony, along with mental training, to facilitate spiritual enlightenment, healing, extrasensory powers, and understanding of the cosmic order. Carl Weschcke, president of the publishing company Llewellyn Worldwide, has called this field of magick “spiritual technology.” Indeed, if you have a fondness for highly developed systems, this path might be for you.

Why engage in complicated and sometimes lengthy rituals? Rituals focus the mind and transport you from the everyday world into a magickal one— that’s a key reason for enacting them. Rituals rely on symbolic associations that the magician’s senses and subconscious mind intuitively understand. Gestures, diagrams, postures, words, images, sounds, scents, and colors all play symbolic roles in magick rituals and ceremonies.

Ritual magick often involves elaborate and carefully orchestrated practices that are designed for various purposes. Purification rituals, for instance, cleanse the mind, body, and energy field. Protection rituals define sacred space and prevent unwanted influences from interfering. The rituals themselves are magickal acts.

Cleansing Potion

hey so I bet many of you have been within a situation where you need a quick cleansing to refresh your mind, body, and spirit but don’t have either the time or fancy ingredients to whip up a high class potion. Well here’s a simple way to construct a “kitchen witch” potion for cleaning up any negative and dark energy on yourself within minutes.

Ingredients:

~rainwater (spring water works too. not. purified)

~lemon (whether it be juice from a bottle or actual lemon slices) *organic is always nice

~salt or quartz crystals

~sunlight

~sage (for protection against negativity that could be added back onto you after the potion) *optional

pour your rainwater into a glass cup (plastic is okay but glass amplifies it a lot better), slide in yo lemon, sprinkle in your salt or drop in your crystals (wash the crystals before inserting to not only clean them, but spiritually cleanse them), add in your sage *still optional, and bathe it under the sunlight for a few seconds before sipping.

Certain people like to cast circles, gather the power of intention, and add in their own personal light and energy into the potion which in turn does advance the potion and make it work better for the specific individual but it’s totally up to you if you want to take it to that extent or not. Good luck! ~Jo

{ Energy Cleanse } Take Your Power Back

We all know those energy draining days and would probably ALL prefer to SKIP them. But hey… life happens, so we’ve got be ready to respond back….BUT in an empowering way (though).
Energy cleansing- mind and body is epically essential to staying balanced, in tune and in harmony with our higher selves; it’s how we take out power back.
Drinking green juice and journaling daily  is a perfect way to {respond, release, realign, rejuvenate and recover}, all some of the big R’s in energy recovery and healing. Shout out to all my fellow {Empaths}.

 PLEASE take the time to cleanse yourself of the energy you are picking up from those around and from just being out in the world, each day. Most of the energetic heaviness and drained energy- mind and body that we feel is not our own stuff…it’s —> OTHER people’s ‘stuff’. ( Uggggh…..right?! I know. ) 

You are an energy sponge and it’s trying to attach to you (because you are pretty epically amazing…but hmmmm NO….don’t let it).
Create a routine and also the time daily to discharge this intruding energy; so that you can keep vibrating higher and feeling in tune with your higher and optimal energetic self, mind, body and spirit.

A few other ways that help me and countless others to rejuvenate, clear and cleanse of disagreeable and toxic energy and emotions whether coming from within or without are: sea salt baths, yoga, dancing, prayer, meditation, some sort of physical fitness, spending time in nature, massage, positive music, visiting the beach, crystals, rest and sage smudging just to name a few of many. The main thing with disagreeable and toxic energy is to catch it fast….and to give it no life or power to take any comfort, manifestation or shape within you or around your atmosphere.
I will be posting/blogging on Empaths and ways of protecting your energy in more detail and depth coming soon.

Keep your energy protected, cleansed and vibrating high daily, because the world needs you on point and seated on your divine throne of joy, love and purpose. 

Love & protection - Lalah Delia
