Hades’s Dream

All Hades dreams of is a life with Persephone.

A life where they have children together. 

image

A life where she calls him by his name.

image

A life where she loves him.

His dream is so simple and I want so badly for his dreams to come true. 

But… at this point in the story, that dream feels very unattainable. While we, the readers, know that they end up together, Hades doesn’t know that yet. He doesn’t think he can have that kind of happiness. But worst of all, he doesn’t think he deserves this kind of happiness.

So… I understand why he wakes up sad.

I long for a lover that matches my energy. We are two individuals that respect each other and reciprocate our feelings. We don’t give just to get back. We give simply because we appreciate each other. We are mature enough to acknowledge that we need our own alone time. We give each other healthy space because we respect our sense of self. We are one at times but we are on our own paths. There’s no doubts that they have your back. Instead of spending most of the time wondering what this is rather than being certain. It’s unrealistic to expect perfection but it’s alright to want a relationship that heals. One that makes you realize that it is possible to coexist someone in a healthy way. It’s not asking too much to want to be with someone who is aware of the joys in life. There’s only so much time we get on this earth. Spend it with someone that wants to get the most out of what’s left of it.

My Manifestation Box

A Manifestation Box (also known as a Wish Box) is a box where you put items symbolizing the things you want to manifest! Pretty straight forward!

Mine started as a plain wooden box from the dollar store, then I gave it my witchy touches! I painted the outside black with a galaxy design all over, and a little witchy emblem on top. Then painted the inside pastels with clouds (and more stars).

Next I cut up slices of paper to approximately the size of fortunes from fortune cookies, and wrote out all my desires on each piece. Make sure to focus on your intention with each wish! Really visualize it coming true and being yours!

Afterwards, I smoke cleansed the box with incense, as well as come crystals I decided to add. I chose to use rose quartz, amethyst, amazonite, citrine, amber, and clear quartz to help amplify my intentions. Then just added them all to the box! (Again, focus on your intentions and visualizations while doing so!)

And voila! A Manifestation Box! Super easy and fun to do, with great rewards! You can add wishes and desires to your box anytime as they come to mind!

They’re truly unique and personalized to each person. Hope this was helpful to other other witches that have considered doing this! 🔮

We’re all born high by nature. We shouldn’t do anything that will bring us down or destroy the peace of the mind. Left alone, the mind is undisturbed and reflects our joyous nature. But then wants and desires arise and we chase those in order to seek happiness. The Yoga practices are just undoing what you have done earlier. That’s why I say my religion is “Undoism.” We have done enough to disturb our true nature, so now let’s undo all that and return to our natural state of peace and ease.
