Obsidian Daggers

Please like or reply to this post if you didn’t get a chance to get an obsidian dagger the last time we had them in stock, and would be interested in getting one the next time we restock. We are going to be getting in contact with that supplier again soon (he only comes to the US a couple times a year) about placing another order, but I want to get an idea of how many to order!

They’re either mahogany or black obsidian and they come in different sizes (the prices were like $20, $26, $30, and $40) 

and here are some examples:

Banish that Habit!

I made a spell! 

Last night I was reminding myself to look up spells for ending bad habits, just send those habits away never to return and hey…that sounds like banishing.

So I did a banishing spell for my bad habit! I looked up several banishing spells, got some ideas, but didn’t really like any of them. So I decided to make my own. I thought I’d share.

Supplies:

  • black candle 
  • black salt 
  • sage
  • rosemary
  • pepper
  • bay leaf (spell catalyst/strengthener)
  • onion
  • cloves
  • ginger (spell strengthener)
  • amethyst
  • tiger eye
  • lapis lazuli
  • obsidian
  • black beads or something else black for color correspondence
  • some sort of jar or container

All of these are listed as banishing correspondences in my own grimoire unless otherwise mentioned. You can substitute things if you like. I don’t think you need all these things, I just really wanted a strong spell (I’ve got twenty plus years of bad habit to break!). 

I have lapis lazuli, mahogany obsidian and an amethyst cluster, things that were either too large to go into my container or that I wasn’t willing to sacrifice. I put these around my container so the energy of them could soak in. If you like visualization, you can certainly do that here. 

Instructions:

  1. Ground and center. Cleanse your space/objects to be used. 
  2. Light the black candle.
  3. If wanted, use some sort of ‘starting a spell’ phrase. Mine went something like, “Universe, hear this. By the power all all these things, my bad habit will be banished permanently.”
  4. In whatever order you want, add the ingredients to the jar, except the candle of course. While doing so, repeat “I will not [whatever the bad habit is]”, or “I am free from [bad habit]”. You can add to this, i.e “I [other habit] instead”. If you like, add in a few drops of the candle wax to the mix of ingredients.
  5. Seal the jar with the black candle wax. I usually say something at the end to announce the spell is over, basically the same as what I said in the beginning. “Universe, you have heard this…”
  6. You’re done! I recommend grounding and centering again, and don’t forget to blow out the candle. 

So that was that! Personalize as desired! I hope this helps you (and me)!

Day 104.

Mahogany Obsidian.
A gem in the rough. Her gem is more like a growth, stuck through her torso, wider at the back.

I am way too late to the party on this, but since I’ve now actually watched SU I decided to give it a whirl. A lot of inspiration and design choices(particularly the scythe because i loved it so much) were based off of this KICKASS gemsona the amazing Arly made me before I’d even watched the first episode of SU.

Bought this hand knapped obisdian knife as a going away gift for my boss, who is moving on to greener pastures.  Bought for $60 from a seller called tenelks on ebay.

Wow is this a really incredible piece, hand knapped from mahogany obsidian. Excellent craftsmanship, absolutely beautiful.  It’s damn sharp too!

Thinking about trying my hand at flint knapping.  Going to buy a knapping set and some flint or obsidian, having to buy the flint because it’s not naturally occuring where I live. Might try some glass knapping too.
