Some tips on collecting rainwater
So, for witchcraft, you want to collect rain water. You are taking a step in the right direction! From my own experience and observations, here are some tips
- Use a shallow vessel. Yes, it would look so much cuter to use a mason jar or some other cute jar but tbh, rain doesn’t fall straight down, it falls at an angle and the higher neck the vessel you use, the less rain you collect. Nope, a shallow bowl or even plate is better. That said on the other end of the spectrum, don’t use an actual plate since the rain will just plink off the plate and not pool in it. Best bet: use a tupperware or a plastic bowl to collect it then move it over to your jar or container of choice.
- Do not collect under a tree or awning. I tried to collect storm water and had the brilliant idea of just going to the common area of my apartment [it’s open air] to collect water. Yes, I collected a lot but it was pretty dirty with leaves and rocks and other bullshit I wasn’t trying to collect. Contrast today I stayed in my apartment and opened a window - clean clear water. Unless you want dirt and sediment and tree shit in your water, either open a window and collect there or grab an umbrella and walk outside.
- Mind the energy you are collecting. I knew when I was collecting rainwater a few weeks ago during Hurricane Irma that the water would be charged with high emotions and that was fine since I was using it with a highly emotional spell [which worked btw]. Know what the energy is behind the water - is it water after a drought? A devastating flood? Simple rain? Think of the emotions attached to the water and what you are using it for.
That’s all for now and happy water collecting, witches!
