Things I've learnt after talking with other wiccans and trying

*Never wear/use more than 4 crystals, or you might feel bad and they probably won’t work;
*Two itens with the same propety aren’t supposed to be matched;
*Love and lust spells aren’t the most mature and certain thing to do;
*When your spell jars are related or supposed to atract energy to you, wear them for a stronger effect;
*Sensitives feel crystals’ energy more than the rest;
*Not all spirits are bad, most of them just want to show you a way or send you though a different path;
*Magic is not a joke or play, if you mess with the wrong spirits and gods things can go badly;

modern fallen angels shivering in their beds at night with an ache in their bones and an itch under skin that has never felt like theirs, a feeling that they are something biggerbetterbrighter and blinding themselves with incessant memories that neverstop and missing home, missing their wings and their divinity

angels texting each other at 3 am “i miss the sky” and “do you remember what it was like to hold the world in our jaws because that feeling feels further and further away every second”

angels in classrooms, angels taking the bus, angels at grocery markets, angels in art studios on friday nights, angels at coffee shops, angels in bookstores, angels working minimum wage; people shudder when they pass by, or they stare too long from across the room and their eyes sting a little because there’s still power there, mortals can still feel it, even if they could never put a name to it.

fallen angels with a righteous sense of justice, still too good to know evil, not sure what’s right or wrong anymore because this world is not dichotomous; there is no easy choice. modern angels with guilt and regrets, what that must mean on a divine level. angels with glowing palms and golden eyes, the remnants of a god too big for any room. 

angels who feel nostalgia for planes they can’t even comprehend anymore, angels earth-bound and wingless and clinging to each other in raw daylight when everything feels like too much and not enough. angels with anxiety, angels with sweaty, shaking hands, angels with ptsd, angels at dusk imagining god in the city lights and trying to understand what purpose means. maybe not theirs, but at least its something tangible.

Devotional Acts Don’t Have to be High Maintenance

Many gods will be perfectly pleased with easier, less high maintenance forms of devotion. The gods I worship are, for the most part, more focused on the intent behind the offering than the offering itself. This is especially good for disabled or mentally ill patrons who might not be able to do every sort of devotional act. Some low-energy devotional acts:

  • eating food associated with the god
  • giving some of that food to the god by placing it outside (make sure it’s safe for animals to eat too)
  • dressing in clothing that reflects the god
  • decorating with animals/figures representative of the god
  • reblogging/blogging pictures associated with their symbols
  • reblogging and reflecting on prayers/hymms
  • starting a devotional blog
  • ‘inviting’ your god to do certain asks — like watch a show that makes you think of them
  • draw them pictures
  • write them songs, poems, or stories
  • read a passage from a book out loud to them
  • tell them good morning and good night
  • do simple research online, like looking up pictures of the god

Nine Worlds of Norse Mythology.

Norse Cosmology contains ‘Nine Homeworlds’ (Níu Heimar in Old Norse) in which all beings reside. These worlds are centered on the World Tree, Yggdrasil, which lies at the centre of the Cosmos. Each of these Nine Worlds is the homeland of various classes of beings that are part of Norse and Germanic mythology. Travel between the worlds are described in myths, where gods and other beings sometimes interact directly with humans.

Gemini: Thoth- the ibis-headed god of thought and writing.

Cancer: Bes- a dwarf with human and lion features, he protected children, family, and expectant mothers.

Pisces: Nut- a goddess who forms the sky, her gown covered in stars. She swallowed the sun god, Ra, every evening and gave birth to him every morning.

So I did a witchy thing with sticky notes

It wasn’t intentional but I really like how it turned out! Basically I had a pad of sticky notes and an idea! I wrote something different on each note before sticking them all around my room and going to sleep. I keep a fan on in my room and knew some would fall but the results were fantastic. On the notes I wrote:

-goals (save up for a laptop etc)
-things I need to do (get my check engine light looked at!)
-positive reinforcement (telling myself I am a beautiful badass witch who can handle her anxiety)
-little reminders (drink a glass of water! Call your parents!)
- some other fun things (sigils, pictures, etc)

In the morning when I woke up (today) only six notes were still stuck on the walls/doors of my room. Originally I had up about thirty

1. Take a deep breath
2. But art supplies
3. Get my car looked at
4. Take a moment for Arianrhod
5. Apply for jobs
6. Keep an eye on how many spoons I have left before agreeing to plans.

Now my intention was never to use these for divine advice, but seeing as the ones that stuck had no common themes in placement I am taking this as a message from the gods about what I need to focus on and how best to spend my energy. It was definitely a fun and unique way to get some advice!

Zeref and Ankhserum Theory

With this new chapter which I must say was so amazing Mashima (trollshima) provided us with a huge plot point and I am not talking about Carla. 

“What do you mean?” You may be asking, “What’s so important about this takeover of Dimaria’s?” 

Well, I am about to explain; let’s first start with my theory;

Zeref Dragneel and Ankhserum…are one and the same. To translate, it means that Zeref is in fact this entire time Ankhserum. Let me explain;

Zeref as shown throughout the manga has the ability to kill, and bring things to life. The first example is quite simple;

Upon receiving the curse, Zeref kills everyone – his classmates and teachers. And sadly that’s just the beginning.

The second part though might puzzle you for a second. Well think, in the very first arc Master um…whatever the dude with the spiky hat’s name is states as per example below that Zeref’s magic is living magic which is a type of Magic that allows the user to bring life to their creations.  

And let’s not forget all the demon’s of Tartarous and Natsu

The god Ankhserum has the same kind of ability; he is the god of life and death

So it shouldn’t be much a surprise since their abilities are so similar. May not be what we imagine however still similar enough.  

Now of course this is just brushing against what I have to say XD. I bet you are wondering how did he manage to get his own curse if this was the case, why he is human or so we think, and why where did I get this idea from.

Haven’t you noticed when reading any myth what-so-ever, the gods/god/creator creates these rules that the Universe must go by? Well, considering that Mashima often takes his inspiration from myths, it would make sense to assume that when earthland was created, Ankhserum written the laws that no one is to mess with life or else they will get the curse of contradictions. Now what is funny is that some x centuries later, Zeref or possibly Ankhserum broke his own rules and got the curse. The curse of contradictions doesn’t discriminate, girl or boy, child or adult, you break the rules, you get punished. These laws/rules were created when earthland came into existence so the gods don’t have to go out of their way to punish somebody. 

Now, here is another thing I wanted to point out here;

Dimaria states that she is from THE ANCIENT CAPITAL OF TIME MILDEAN

Where is Zeref from?

There are some differences in spelling since I got them from two different sources, however it is the same story. This simply cannot be a coincidence, in fact I am wondering, is Zeref even human???? 

Dimaria also mentions that she is a descendant of its people, so perhaps Zeref is a son of a priest the same way Dimaria is?? (I am just assuming since it appears that Mildea was a center for something)  Unfortunately, I cannot find the manga piece where Ultear shows Master Hades the spell Last Ages and mentions the Ancient Mildian Language. This is also no coincidence. 

The last thing I wished to discuss is where this idea originated from and how I came to the conclusion it is plausible. 

A) It seems Mashima’s style, he’d defiantly throw something like that at us.

B) I already figured that the gods would get involved since the GMG and with today’s chapter, it only confirmed my suspicions. 

C) This fact I have no idea where to put, Zeref probably doesn’t know he is a god. I am willing to bet that he could lift his own and Mavis’s curse if he were to access his power by destroying those laws and remodeling them.  

Now, there are still many holes that I would need to patch since only today I got solid ground for this theory. Oh and I forgot to add, @nina2119deviantart I want to thank you for unintentionally pointing out an important fact of the Spriggan 12 are most probably the 12 Titans in the Greek myths. Cronus – the god of time. I want to congratulate you!!! :) 

Thank you all for listening to my theory, I’d appreciate it if you were to reblog and add in your input and opinions. It means so much to me,

Love you all, 

AZ
