“Simplicity is not an end in art, but we usually arrive at simplicity as we approach the true sense of things.”

Constantin Brancusi, pioneer of modern sculpture, was born on this day in 1876. Fishis an embodiment of an idea, depicting a fish’s movements through water and the moving water itself. Brancusi described the sculpture as the fish’s “speed, its floating, flashing body seen through the water…the flash of its spirit.” Learn more

To clean a room from bad vibes, there´s always different methods but I like to use a simple and more personal one.

 First, gather dried herbs. It´s more special if it´s your favourite, since its your room. Mint, Eucalyptus, Rosemary , Lavender Buds, you choose. 

Then, you have to burn them on a old frying pan or the herbs alone if you like, just be sure to turn out the fire quickly, the point is to leave the aromatic smoke. 

Pass the herbs around each corner of the room while thinking of positive energy, of things that make you happy and give you peace of mind. 

Lastly, once you are finished, open the windows and place the ashes and remains in a garden or the natural soil. It´s preferable to thanks the earth for letting you use the herbs to clean your place. .゚☆゚. - Bo

Runic Magic or Divination uses stones with alphabetic symbols that are used to predict one´s future. They are from different materials and usually kept in a pouch.

Like Ryley and Ishani found out,  a symbol can mean different things , you need to pick the meaning that applies more to the person who made the question and it also depends on the circle it falls. Be it your “Self”, “Influences”, or “Future Events”. The combination of the runes that fell are the answer to the question. 

✧*:・゚Remember that above all,  it takes time and practice. Remember to be open to different methods and always charge the runes with the energy of the one who asks. *:・゚✧

“I don’t mistrust reality, of which I know next to nothing. I mistrust the picture of reality conveyed to us by our senses, which is imperfect and circumscribed.“

Happy birthday, Gerhard Richter! Richter works in many mediums including #painting, #photography, and #sculpture. This self-portrait looks like a blurred photograph, but is actually an oil painting. View other works of Richter’s from the MoMA’s collection at mo.ma/gerhardrichter.
