A Spell to Transform Destructive Feelings

What you will need:

  1. A bowl
  2. Spring water (rain water can also be use, and tap water is fine as a last resort)
  3. A raven or crow feather
  4. Paper
  5. Red pen/pencil/crayon

Before you do this spell meditate on the destructive feeling(s) you wish to transforms & the positive feeling(s) or attitude you wish to attain.

Ready yourself in your use manner before you spell work (anointing yourself, lighting incense, casting a circle, invoking etc)

State the intention of this spell by saying out loud “I am here to cast a spell to transform my destructive feelings into life-enhancing and positive ones”

Place your hand on the bowl of water & say out loud “May my feelings and thoughts be as clear and life-giving as this water”

Now pick up the crow/raven feather and either call upon the spirit of the animal or if you are comfortable & familiar with a deity of transformation for example Cerridwen then call upon them. If you have not worked with deities before, the just invoke the spirit of raven/crow saying something like:

Raven/Crow 

Bird of the Void

Come forth from darkness 

And bring me the light

You who has the power of transformation

I call upon you

to shine your light

And transform all that is darkness within me

Put down the feather and, with your index finger write upon the water’s surface. Write one word for phase which sums up each destructive feeling your harbour, but do not name more then three feelings, as it is too much on which to concentrate in just one spell. As you write each word or phase, project its unpleasant meaning straight into the water by the power of your through. Think it is so and because water is responsive, it will be. Your water container will probably not be very large so you may have to write one word on top of another, which is fine. Think of the previous word as having sunk down below the water’s surface.

Pause when you have finished writing. Now think, instead, about the new feelings and attitudes which you would like to develop. For example, if you have written ‘confusion’, remind yourself you would like to feel 'clarity’ or 'decisiveness' 

Now pick up the raven/cow feather again and say:

“As the crow/raven feather writes words of good feeling within the water so all is well. so shall the mood of the water be transformed, bespelled. so shall it be remade in harmony. And, as this water,so my own mind”

Write as many new words for phrases as you recorded negative feelings (if you wrote 3 negative word, write 2 positive ones). Use the feather as a quill 'pen’ this time. So if you wrote 'fear’ with your finger, for example, you may now want to write 'courage’ with the feather. If the feeling is something that say has come from, for example, being assaulted or some kind of abuse then writing something like 'love’ is just not realistic because the feelings you wish to attain are meant to be something you can actually realistically achieve. If this is the case, instead, write something like 'pursuit of justice’ or 'to move on’, this way you are using the energy in a more constructive manner.

After writing, pause with the tip of the quill still in the water, and add:

Now the script within the water is changed.

Now the feelings within it are rearranged,

Turning from ill to well,

From what causes disease to what brings release.

And as within the water, so within me.

As within this bowl, so within my soul.

All is transformed to harmony, clear and free.”

Lay down the feather and pause again, meditating upon the changed. Anoint your brow with water from the bowl. Using your index finger, draw an equal-armed cross within a circle aka a Sun Cross (⊕). This represents harmony and integration, as well as symbolizing the magic circle.

Now sit down with a with of clean blank paper and a red pen/pencil/crayon. Write again your new positive word(s) or phrase(s), the same ones that you wrote with the crow/raven feather. Also write ’ I [your name], live in these feelings, and they in me.’ Add the symbol of the sun cross (⊕) 

Write this, even if you do not feel anything of the sort, even if you still feel bitter or pessimistic. A spell must have time to work, for natural magic is like nature itself, sometimes slow-moving but deep and thorough.

After the spell-casting, place this magical document under your pillow. Keep it for at least 3 months.

You should now spend some time visualizing or describing life as you intend to experience it as a result of your changed feelings. Dwell on your state (calm, assured, purposeful), your state of mind (good) and your actions (creative). Go into as much detail as you can manage. If you find yourself slipping back into the negative feeling, repeat the word or phrase describing your new feeling. You could chant the word or phrase to yourself everyday as an affirmation of sorts, in some magical traditions words or rhymes of magical impact are repeated in multiples of three or nine, so trying saying your chose word or phrase nine or perhaps twenty-seven times ( three times nine). You could do this as the first thing you do when you wake up.

Be sure to give thanks to the raven/crow spirit, if they are native to the area in which you live, you could feed them as a thank you.

Pour the water outside on the earth or at the foot of a tree, a place that is clean & uncontaminated. This is important because you have 'poured yourself’ into this water, so it need to be give to a place that feels good. The feather can be kept on your altar or stored with your magical equipment for future rites.

Magic should never be used as a replacement for medical treatment and profession help.

Aphrodite and Mortal Beauty

One of the first posts i made was about the Beautiful Goddess Aphrodite, but i haven’t talked about her much since, so today i would like to go back over her wonderful blessings, how her beauty resides in every single one of us. i call upon you, the Muses, all nine of you, to aid me in telling the people of the world about her and her divine majesty, the Goddess Aphrodite. Now let me tell you something, when i pray to the Gods, i ain’t quiet. No, when i praise the Olympians, i stand up, And i am loud, oh Gods How i’m loud. Praise Aphrodite! Come on, don’t be quiet, everyone stand up, scream, don’t tell me she beautiful, tell her! Praise her, truly! let me tell you, Before The Birth of Our Goddess Aphrodite, no man on this Earth, nor any Olympian on high knew true beauty. On that faithful day, when she was born from the seafoam, the Gods themselves stopped to look and she the birth of true divine beauty. But the absolute divine beauty isn’t just in the face of the Goddess, no, believe it or not the true divine beauty resides within all of us, and do you know why? Because the gift of Beauty was given to our ancestor, the first mortal woman, Pandora, the bearer of all the gifts of the Gods.  May the blessings of the gods be upon you

“Poor freakish thing, there is no escape. Not until all questions have been answered. By you, and by all upon whom I would call. For I have been summoned to this place. Driven, like Percival, to find a thing most rare. Though the grail I seek is one of flesh. Corrupted. Diseased. Perfect in its monstrous imperfection. Before this night is through, I will find my grail. One more pure freak to add to our unhappy number.”

I need all of the help I can get right now.

Thank you all, keep being amazing people!

Lead Me Not To Temptation

TITLE: Lead Me Not to Temptation

CHAPTER NO./ONE SHOT: Chapter Fifteen

AUTHOR: wolfpawn

ORIGINAL IMAGINE: 

Imagine being chosen to be Loki’s wife, and while at first you loath the idea, you came around and actually fall in love with Loki, and he falls in love with you. But the day before the wedding, Odin changes the arrangement and suddenly you’re being whisked away to marry Thor instead. You and Loki manage to have a secret affair and things are perfect, until you fall pregnant.

RATING: Mature 

Kari glared at the far wall, her anger still flaring through her. He forgot, her parents died on their way home from visiting them and he forgot. ‘Nothing important’ he had said. Loki had not been on realm and he knew, there was no excuse. She was glad she went to Eir. The healer was shocked at her request, but after the new queen explained her reasons, the healer nodded and gave her the concoction she would require.

“Perhaps it is for the best for now.” Eir smiled sadly.

“I think you right.” Kari agreed.

“Take it with your next meal and it will take effect immediately. Even with that meal, should there be reason to be concerned.”

“Thank you, for this, and for your ear.”

Stir

Stir within my heart a love that’s real,
a love that’s true, a love to keep

Call my name with one loud voice,
so I may hear, that I may know
When this burden is far too much to carry,
and I have fallen in too deep
Make firm your grasp upon my life,
take my faded faith and make it grow

Stir within my heart a love that’s real,
a love that’s true, a love that’s wide

So when these legs of mine grow weary
and my feet begin to stumble
Keep me fixed upon your path
and use your hands to gently guide
There is no fear within your love,
for it is kind and it is humble

Stir within my heart a love that’s real,
a love that’s true, a love complete

In this barren heart please build a home,
claim my fear and make it grace
Take this life and call it yours,
I lay it all upon your feet
I need you Lord, to hold me close,
and hold me tight, in your embrace

just saw winter soldier

I recommend it. (Rather more verbose spoilers below the cut). 

These are not comprehensive or sweeping, but just a few thoughts before I tumble into bed:

  • Natasha negotiating her relationship with trust, identity, and openness in this was striking and ScarJo does an expected and fantastic job with every mannerism and word. 
  • What is Agents of SHIELD going to do now? That was a little game-changing for them. I suppose they were on the road to vigilantism anyway.  
  • It was a movie of parallels, which is a quick way to my heart: the “you shaped the nation speech” from the trailer, which was strongly implied to be for Steve, is for Bucky (he is the other half of the patriotic coin); they have Bucky be the only other character (that I remember) who moves Steve’s shield— he stops it on the roof; in the helicarrier at the end Bucky not only takes it from Steve but also uses against him (and, in that act of violence, gives it back). 
  • Another parallel: Steve and the Falcon as men who have both lost their wingmen, both traumatized soldiers whose beds are too soft. 
  • Speaking of which, taking some time in an action movie to talk about PTSD in returning vets? Yes. Thank you. Falcon’s clinic was so important. 
  • Steve makes a sacrifice on a burning, dying air-ship; he gives himself up, above water, and falls, but this time the world he is saving is only his own. Last time he died it was for a lot of reasons— one of them was Peggy, but it was also for greater New York, and the world. This time, Steve gives up on his arguable duty to world, who so loudly or silently requires him to be their hero, and he stays for Bucky. He is dragged out of the water again, not by an old friend’s legacy, but by an old friend’s rebirth. 
  • I’m ready for Cap America 3: WHERE’S MY BUCKY. Are you?
  • P.S. I’m also ready for The Black Widow: Origins, or The Black Widow: Rebirth, or The Black Widow: more Natasha is always a good thing. Clint as sidekick is optional but desired.

It was a night I will never forget. I haven’t ever really done anything special to ring in the new year, but this was my first new years in Philadelphia so I could not pass up the opportunity to get out and just see what all was happening. Despite my bus hitting a car and having to walk home, it was truly such a special night which only could have been better had I been accompanied by a certain someone. It was cold and crowded, but that did not stop me from smiling and dancing like a fool when Ariana Grande started playing during the fireworks, I can only imagine the hype if you had been there with me. The show was amazing and what is more interesting than hundreds of drunk people piling into the subway until you are pressed against the door and meeting strangers in ways which would be assault under other circumstances? All I can say is how much I love my city, and how thankful I am to be here. Happy New Year everyone, I call upon all of you to take control and make this year one where you chase your wildest dreams. Give life meaning, give it purpose, give it value. More than that; Be strong, be proud, be brave, and never forget, it gets better.

Mod: “Carol in the first half of the season, I want to go back to just a little bit, the episode, um the episode 2, the attack by the wolves and that moment where Carol, Carol is just standing at the window and looks out and everything breaks loose there….
That moments where she is running around, and trying to defend people ,and she breaks down, what, what was the main emotion for her behind that, was she feeling guilt that these people were attacked after they trusted her, was she just feeling the loss of that she had finally found a place where she could just be, just be for a little bit….Carol never let’s her guard down but….”

Melissa McBride: “I think it’s sort of a culmination of that, and just all of that, you know, there was this sense that community was going to happen again, that they are in a safe, safe zone, that there is hope for normalcy, and family, and community…and cookies…and then… there’s no safety, there’s no guarantee for safety anymore.
And I, and also just what it takes, you know what it’s called upon all of them to do to survive, it’s so unnatural…That when you get to that part when you’re in the safe zone, when you’re not doing it for a while, it’s…, you feel that, you feel normal again, and you’re…. it’s quiet, except that it seeps in what you’ve done and then you have to process it, live with it, wrap your head around it and do it again…Its realizing that you’re different, what do you do with that…
I think, it’s just disappointing that it’s not gonna work out.
You know, that hope…there was hope.”

Mod: “Do you think that’s why she has such an issue, she’s the one that takes on Morgan because she would like what Morgan is saying to be true but she knows it just isn’t…”

Melissa McBride: “Of course. Which makes it hurt even more. It can’t be that way.
You know, it’s not that simple. It’s complicated. Yeah we would all like to not have to kill anyone, or take another life but our lives are threatened every single day. You know.
We all face it in a different way but how did you survive, how did you get here…
How have you been here so long, what have you done, who died for you… You know you can say that, sure, but at some point, somebody had to bite the….you know….”

Scott Gimple: “Thank you for not finishing that.”

Mod: “Speaking of Morgan. There’s a big hole in Morgan’s philosophy in that, when he was taught all of those things out in the woods by Eastman, they were alone in the woods, there weren’t people to protect, there weren’t a lot of walkers….a pitiful of walkers after them. Is Morgan going to realize at some point, that flaw in his thinking?”

Scott Gimple: “The thing that I, the thing….One of the things that I like that we crafted is that, even we see in episode 7 that Morgan is not certain about this.
It’s not this is exactly the philosophy that everybody has to have, it’s more like this is the philosophy that helped me, this is the philosophy I want to be true, I need it to be true. It’s like you can see the conflict within him and similarly with Carol, she didn’t kill Morgan, she could have killed Morgan, she could have just killed the wolf…. I’m sorry every time I say stuff like that I’m like this episode seven right, i’m in the middle of finishing aspects of season 6 and working on aspects of season 7 so I have no idea where I am….

But Carol isn’t certain either, or she would’ve killed them.
Um they both know that they don’t have the answer, but they both know that their experiences led them to this place in their philosophies and they both hit up on each other sensitivities. Carol is wildly pissed off at Morgan because she would love that to be true but her experience has led her to do an awful thing, after an awful thing on the behalf of others. She’s sacrificed who she is, completely, to ensure people live and for this person to say “all life is precious”…she’s not happy about that.
Melissa said what I just said in 10 seconds - ‘It’s complicated’. Like the Alec Baldwin and Meryl Streep film, it’s exactly like that…“

February, 2016 - Melissa McBride and Scott Gimple on ‘Carol and Morgan’

O oft-forgotten deity of ‘unintentional’ queer subtext and the most sacred inertia that silences bland het romance before it can have the last word…you who erode the mountaintops from which the enemy has hurled the boulders of canonicity and triggered avalanches of bisexual erasure to bury the modest valleys in which we gather in our hope and our hunger and our weariness from time immemorial…you who level the uneven terrain in canon’s wake so detractors have but sand to stand upon when they try to invalidate our queer ships…you who have given us these peaceful, relatively respected spaces where we can survive until the promised day arrives and heteronormativity is struck down once and for all, and queer relationships reign over fictional media with kindness and diverse, quality representation for all…I call upon you to hear my prayer in these final days before the last season of Korra airs:

Stay the writers’ hands. Keep Makorra and Masami sunk in the coldest, darkest, deepest of ocean trenches that they belong in, where strange creatures yet unknown to us slowly claim those wrecks as their homes and the waters drown their bygone powers of lame heteronormativity and insipid love triangle tension forever…so that Korrasami may ascend, triumphant through the omission of canon endgame het and resplendent with yet more screen time devoted to developing Korra and Asami’s relationship….

Amen.
