dream recallers

SPELL:  Remembering & Recalling Dreams

Originally posted by dangered

During the Basic Spellwriting class that Salt hosted tonight on the server, the WAMILY members gathered and constructed a spell together.  This was an amazing team effort and the collaboration produced a simple, yet effective spell.  This is what they came up with!

PURPOSE OF THE SPELL:  

To dream deeply and vividly, and to recall it when you wake.

SPECIAL TIMING:  

During the New Moon; and/or on a Saturday (a day of relaxation.)  Bonus points if you can score a New Moon on a Saturday!  

Each New Moon is a brand new beginning.  It offers the opportunity to make a change, to re-orient yourself, or to conjure a new aspect of yourself and your life into being.  The energy of the new moon is great for initiating a new project or the start of an adventure.  And with it being hidden in darkness, there are parallels drawn between the darker sides of the moon as well as our minds.

ITEMS NEEDED:

  • Soft Pajamas: for comfort.
  • Fluffy Pillow: to rest our head, where dreams happen.
  • Cup of tea: to warm and relax our bodies.
  • Amethyst: to remove stress, to boost intelligence and promote personality growth, to protect from harmful outside influences, to strengthen memory.

SPELLWORK:

1.  On the night of a New Moon (or a Saturday, or both), climb into bed wearing soft pajamas and tea in hand.  Sip your tea and focus your energy on a night of restful sleep.  Think back on the past vivid dreams you have had and the details of them.  You can also set an amethyst by your bedside, under a pillow, or near a window.

2.  When your tea is finished and you are sleepy, read the following incantation, focusing on the mysterious, majestic power of the New Moon.  Visualize its shadows as a cloak that will conceal you.  The New Moon will inspire the start of your adventure in the dreamscape.

3.  Recite the following spell:

I ask the New Moon to allow peaceful and calm rest. 
To the depths of my subconscious, give me access. 
Let the absence of the Moon be my shield and guide, 
and when I wake, let the dreams ever-flow to my mind.

4.  Turn off the lights, rest your head on your pillow, and allow for your dreams to blossom!  In the morning, you should wake and be able to recall the details of the dream.  (We suggest writing them down!)

Thanks to everyone who participated in creating this spell!  You all are amazing and we cannot wait to see what else our WAMILY creates together!

Empaths


An Empath is a person who has the ability to feel and share other people’s feelings and pains. Empaths are very sensitive to their surroundings, what they eat, and who they are around.  Naturally, Empaths are kind, good-hearted, spiritually attuned, and excellent listeners.

Are you an Empath?

  • You know stuff without being told
  • Public places, like malls or busy grocery shops, can be overwhelming
  • You feel others emotions and pains by taking them on as your own
  • Seeing violence, cruelty, bullying is unbearable.
  • You know when someone is lying to you
  • You pick up physical symptoms off of other people such as colds, body aches, headaches, pains, etc.
  • You have digestive disorders or lower back pains.
  • You are always looking out for the underdog. Anyone whose suffering, in emotional pain or being bullied draws your attention.
  • Others will always want to unload problems on you, even strangers.
  • You are a good listener.
  • You are constantly tired and drained of energy.
  • You are drawn to healing, holistic therapies, and all things metaphysical. 
  • You have a creative streak and a vivid imagination.

  • You strive for truth and honesty

  • Take time out of your day to sit in nature

crystals every witch should have

Originally posted by imvirtual

every crystal has a vibration and an affect on a person. certain crystals prevent negative energies, whereas others attract love. these these are the top 5 crystals every witch should own. (in my opinion)

🌙rose quartz
rose quartz is a very beautiful stone, a crystal of unconditional love. it represents tenderness, healing, nourishment, and comfort. i suggest using this crystal in any love spell.

🌙selenite
selenite can evoke an immense amount of protection from foreign realms. It is an extremely spiritual stone, as it dispels negative energy. selenite is a crystallized form of gypsum. it can clear, open, and activate the crown and higher chakras, making it excellent for all types of spiritual work.

🌙citrine
citrine is a yellow/orange variety of quartz. it is a powerful gem, as it is well known for it’s cleansing abilities. it can be used to cleanse you, your magickal tools, and other crystals. it can also diffuse a situation or disturbance in your home, such as nightmares.

🌙amethyst
amethyst is a light to dark purple variety of quartz. it helps deepen meditation, improves psychic ability, and aids in the remembrance of dreams. wearing the crystal, placing it on your pillow, nightstand, or altar will produce the greatest effect. it is a good offering to any gods or goddesses you believe in.

🌙moonstone
ruled by the moon, this milky white in color crystal aids in dream recall and increases intuition. it calms emotions, like rose quartz, and benefits health. like the moon in the sky, it seems to illuminate.

i believe that crystals choose you. in whatever time you need them most, their vibrations will draw you to them. if you are going to buy a crystal or start a collection, i’d suggest going to your local crystal shop to buy them, unless you know exactly what you want. enjoy your crystal collecting!

love,

*Please be wary when drinking herbal mixtures and putting essential oils directly on the skin or on items that your skin may come in contact with*

The highly sensitive [introverted] tend to be philosophical or spiritual in their orientation, rather than materialistic or hedonistic. They dislike small talk. They often describe themselves as creative or intuitive. They dream vividly, and can often recall their dreams the next day. They love music, nature, art, physical beauty. They feel exceptionally strong emotions–sometimes acute bouts of joy, but also sorrow, melancholy, and fear. Highly sensitive people also process information about their environments–both physical and emotional–unusually deeply. They tend to notice subtleties that others miss–another person’s shift in mood, say, or a lightbulb burning a touch too brightly.

Wood & Crystals for Wands

@onyxmagik

I wanted to make this as organized as I could for you and of course for others. I hope you don’t mind!

Please keep in mind that this list is made up of information from my own research and studies as well as personal opinion. You can use any wood or crystals for your own wand. Please don’t feel like you have to stick to my list!

 Wand Crystals & Their Properties:

  • Angelite (also called Anhydrite): Angelite is a stone of heightened awareness, with special focus on peace and brotherhood. It gives protection in the environment around your body.
  • Amethyst: Amethyst enhances spiritual awareness and spiritual wisdom, promoting a higher state of consciousness. Amethyst clears and repairs holes in the aura and draws in Divine energy, as well as aligning and fostering cooperation between the energy bodies.
  • Tourmaline: Tourmaline is very grounding and helpful in releasing stress and tension. They can bring inspiration from higher realms into the chakras for processing within the body. All Tourmaline is thought to balance yin and yang energies, as well as the left and right hemispheres of the brain.
  • Pyrite: Pyrite is a very protective stone, shielding the user from negative energy of all kinds. Pyrite blocks energy leaks and mends auric tears.
  • Hematite: Hematite helps to absorb negative energy and calms in times of stress or worry. Hematite is a very protective stone and is great to carry to help you stay grounded in many situations. Hematite is also good for working with the Root Chakra, helping to transform negative energies into a more positive vibration.
  • Jet: Jet is an excellent stone for use in magic rituals to draw and channel the elements of the earth’s energies in a desired direction.
  • Clear Quartz: Clear Quartz is known as the stone of power and amplifies any energy or intention.  Clear Quartz protects against negativity, attunes to your higher self, and relieves pain.
  • Obsidian: Obsidian draws hidden imbalances to the surface and releases them. The blackness of this stone enhances the ability to reach your inner self. It is one of the earliest known stones to be used for scrying (seeing into the future). Plus it is also extremely good for protection.

  • Labradorite: Labradorite is a power stone, allowing you to see through illusions and determine the actual form of your dreams and goals.
  • Agate: Agates carry a quiet energy that works on the subtle bodies, and are great for achieving stability and balance in many aspects of one’s life. Although they work very slowly and deliberately, this gentle nature of Agate helps them to have a lasting impact.
  • Aragonaite: Blue Aragonite is a stone that calms emotions and heightens communication, perception, and psychic ability. Brown Aragonite is a grounding stone. It is often used to center and ground physical energies and is very useful during stressful times
  • Kyanite: Kyanite transmits and amplifies high-frequency energies, making it a great stone for meditation. Kyanite brings a calming, tranquilizing energy to the body. Kyanite clears and calms you in preparation for meditation, and assists in receiving intuitive and psychic thoughts, as well as dream recall.

Michiru: *expresses mild opinion*

Haruka: DON’T BE STUPID THIS IS NOTHING I DISMISS YOU WITH MY SUPERIOR SET OF SKILLS AND ATTRIBUTES IT’S ALREADY PAGE TWO AND NOBODY HAS MENTIONED HOW STRONG AND AWESOME I AM I HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING AROUND HERE GOD

Between the inability to have a brief exchange of ideas, the refusal to wash a dish or participate in any child-related activity that extends beyond Hungry Hungry Hippos, the long hours spent silently gazing out of windows, the stalking and sexual assault, and the open pining for someone else while in your girlfriend’s embrace, I can see why manga!Haruka is such a catch.

Past Life Dreams: Signs

Sings that you have had a past life dream:

  1. Heightened senses.
  2. Extremely vivid.
  3. Unforgettable; easily recalled.
  4. Things are seen in groups of threes.
  5. Presence of circular geometry.
  6. Historical detail.
  7. If the dream reoccurs, the events remain unchanged.
  8. Show origins of physical, spiritual, and/or emotional issues.
  9. You look different.
Herbs for Lucid Dreaming

Lucid dreaming is a phenomenon in which the body rests but the mind does not. In other words, you dream, but you are aware of that fact. Through this, dreams can be manipulated, and with practise, even controlled. Lucid dreaming can be achieved through several different methods, but I find that the best way it is done is with the use of herbs.

Herbs for lucid dreaming:

Calea Zacatechichi: Likely the most well known herb for dreaming, the Mexican Dream Herb brings about clearer, more wild dreams. A feeling of well-being accompanies after drinking tea, infusion, tincture, or smoking, as well as a clearer head the next day. Keeping an intention in mind is helpful when using this herb as you fall asleep. It is often used in ritual to meet spirit guides in dreams, too!

Mugwort: This is my favourite dreaming herb. It has been and is used in many different cultures for lucid and prophetic dreams and astral travel. Some users report having darker dreams that reveal hidden insights and core wounds, helping them to find closure. It helps you enter and stay for long periods of time in a conscious dream state and promotes REM sleep. It also brings more brilliant and longer dreams!

Heimia Salicifolia: Sun Opener Herb is another name for this powerful dream/sleep herb. It is known widely for enhancing memories as you dream and was regarded as scared by the Aztecs for this. It also causes yellowing of the vision, prophetic visions during sleep, and altered acoustic perception. Other effects include a feeling of well-being, heavy feeling limbs, floating thoughts, calmness, relaxation, and reduced pain. Some people have used this herb for a mild high*, though it is nonaddictive. 

Celastrus Paniculatus: The herb commonly known as Intellect Tree is regarded in India as a sacred medicine for memory enhancement and therefore helps with dream recall. Take it in conjunction with other dream herbs so you remember your experience more sharply. 

Salene Capenis: Also known as Xhosa Dream Root, its roots are traditionally used by shamans to promote lucid dream states in healers and other shamans during initiation ceremonies. It is noted as a “teaching plant” that is considered highly sacred.

Nymphaea Caerulea: This is another nonaddictive herb that is used often times for a mild high*. It promotes a deeper and more restful sleep, better dream recall, and more intense visual imagery during dreams. This herb is typically consumed in teas, elixir extracts, or by smoking it.

Asparagus Racemoses: Tian Man Dong is known well for spirit alignment. Known also as ‘Shatawari’, ‘Wild Asparagus Root’, ‘The Flying Herb’,  and ‘Heavenly Spirit Herb’ this delicate white flower is said to open the heart and cause dreams about things upon the heart and soul. The Chinese say it effective to help one fly through the universe at night, achieving magnificent dreams and moving in alignment with the spirit

Entada Rheedii: Or more commonly, African Dream bean, is traditionally used in African medicine to induce vivid dreams and enable communication with the spirit world. Entada facilitates entry into the dream world, and promotes increased REM awareness. This makes it easier for the sleeper to realise that they are dreaming and thus gives them an edge in achieving lucidity. This herb contains several active compounds, essential oils and alkaloids.

1 oz distilled water
6 drops lavender essential oil
3 drops sweet orange essential oil
3 drops roman chamomile essential oil

✨Tea✨

To guarantee that a tea will be good for sleep, first make sure that it is caffeine free! Good rule of thumb is that *most* “herbal” blends and Rooibos will be caffeine free because they do not include Camellia sinensis (the “tea” plant that is the base for white,green,oolong,black & puerh teas)
Rooibos is my favourite tea base because it is naturally hydrating, caffeine free, affordable, and super tasty!

Valerian Root

Goddess above, queen of the night
Help me sleep in your healing light
Restful sleep, come to me
Relax my body, and let my mind be free
Grant me calm and peace tonight, and
Let me wake in the God’s golden light

That’s all I have for now, friends! May your dreams be sweet and you wake up feeling refreshed.

Warm blessings ❤️

FAIRY QUARTZ (spirit quartz)

In the metaphysical world, Spirit Quartzis a crystal of Harmony and Alignment. It takes all the crystal energies of the main stone and amplifies them over and over again in all the tiny points, each reflecting light back and forth to one another so all can bathe in the combined radiance of the whole.

Spirit Quartz is a comforting stone, assisting at death to guide the soul through the dimensions of the afterlife and into the hands of those waiting to welcome it home. It also provides solace and understanding for those left behind.

Spirit Quartz cleanses other stones and enhances their energy in healing layouts. It harmonizes well with all members of the Quartz and Beryl families, as well as Moldavite which speeds its effects

Lucid dreaming and astral travelling are both intensified when Spirit Quartz is placed under the pillow or on the bedside table during your sleep hours. To improve dream recall, or for inter-stellar travel, try combining with Herkimer Diamonds or Celestite.

The Mistake (Part 3) - Stiles Stilinski

Author: @were-cheetah-stiles

Title: “The One With The Wedding In Beacon Hills”

Characters: Stiles Stilinski, Allison Argent, Scott McCall, Isaac Lahey, Melissa McCall, Noah Stilinski, Chris Argent, Lydia Martin & Reader

Author’s Note: There may or may not be a few pictures of Dylan from the LA American Assassin premiere in this. I imagine that all of the groomsmen wore three piece suits, and Scott wore the same color and pattern, just no vest. ANYWAY… anyway… um…. y/f/c is your favorite color, I’m not trying to tell you what color or style dress you look good in.  Also, go read Between Us, by @fillthevoid-stilinski. Without her and without that fic, this ish would not exist.

Songs: The links will be on the song titles throughout the story as well. In order as they play: Doris Troy. Etta James. Haley Reinhart. Don’t have to listen but I don’t know, Etta James’ really adds to the moment…

Summary: Stiles and Y/n continue their charade at Scott and Allison’s wedding, but find that they are both quickly having trouble keeping their respective feelings hidden from one another, and everyone else.

Prologue - Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 - Part 4 - Part 5- Part 6 - Epilogue

You spent all of Friday running around town with either the wedding planner, Allison, or one of the other bridesmaids, so you had managed to avoid Stiles all day and you were relieved. Between the fake relationship and the real marriage, you were at the end of your emotional tether. Denying your feelings for Stiles was becoming harder and harder each time you laid your eyes on his handsome, wonderful, stupid fucking face. You glanced down at your phone in your lap, as the hairdresser curled your hair into an updo behind you.

Biles Bilinski: How’s it going over there?

You: fine.

Biles Bilinski: Giz

Biles Bilinski: You have got to stop being pissed at me.

Biles Bilinski: I didn’t do anything and I miss you.

You sighed heavily at the last three words on your screen.

Taylor Swift, Look What You Made Me Do, review: 'Swift has painted herself as a villain, and triumphed'

By: Sarah Carson for The Telegraph
Date: August 25th 2017

Taylor Swift is a force to be reckoned with, and if it’s taken this long to realise it then more fool you. After a year of near-silence, months of rumours, and a week of trailing serpentine clues through social media, the first single from her forthcoming sixth album Reputation is here. Look What You Made Me Do is a blistering battle cry, no doubt destined to dominate the charts and airwaves until listeners are driven as rabid as the star herself. This is a comeback laden with vengeance.

Swift’s evolution from doe-eyed country angel to hardened superstar has been acutely observed. Along the way, she has reportedly left half of showbiz and, if tabloids are to be believed, a strong proportion of the western world’s single men in her wake.
