our magic

“There’s 2 incredible things that are close to magic in life and that’s when people get together for sports and when people get together for music. I think you know like people look at a concert as something very simple in life but think about it: there’s gonna be 10.000 people in this room tonight, who know all the lyrics, who love the music for the same reason, it makes them all feel good at the same time and that doesn’t happen unless it’s in music and that’s very special because to get that many humans all together singing the same song, feeling the same way is very rare”

This is what concerts are about. This is what they SHOULD be about.

I love the pagan community, but sheesh you guys.

Spells and herbs and crystals and deities etc. are great. I work with all of these things. But there is a time and a place for these things. I know not everyone can afford doctors, medications, treatments, etc., but if I see one more post about how to cure cancer with turmeric and crystal therapy I am going to lose my damn mind. 

I feel like I shouldn’t have to say this. Science is not our enemy. Science is wonderful. Science helps us live longer and understand the world around us that many of us revere as an entity in itself. Denying scientific evidence doesn’t make you quirky or more of a practitioner/pagan/witch/believer than someone else. It makes the rest of us look bad.

Relatedly, HOLY GOD, look at this. They made a marker showing exactly where they sat for the photo, so you can re-create it.

When people dig this shit up in 3,000 years, they are deadass going to believe we worshiped the Beatles as deities. And I’m not even sure they’ll be wrong.

Archaeologist 1: Metal buttprints?! What in the HELL?

Archaeologist 2: Ah yes. From the Bug Cult. Intended for ritual purposes.

Magic is an exchange.

🔮🦉🕯🗿

I love this quote from Nashville writer Honest Lewis. The moment I read it I smiled and sighed. The role of the witch can be brilliant, exciting, enlightening, shamanic, challenging, and exhausting all at once. Our work is in energy. Our work is at the crossroads, on the hedge, at the shore, at the altar, in the forest, in the cosmos. We listen, counsel, share insight, divine, hold space, conjure, and manifest results. It is only fair to contemplate this statement: it rings true with our ancestors and has been spoken of in our legends and mythology. Magic is an exchange, so allow the offering and its process to heighten power and awaken wisdom for those who seek you out.

🔮🦉🕯🗿

There exist five universes, each one tentatively connected to the others. Each universe is defined by the ABSENCE of one of the five elements; Earth, Water, Air, Fire & Magic. Our universe is the one without magic.

🥛 Healing milk bath 🥛

Relax and wash away the negativity in this softening, minty milk bath! If you have any aches or pains then the mint should be able to relax your body a little bit as well!

🥛  What you need  🥛
- 1 cup whole milk (or milk alternative - soy would be next best)
- 2-3 drops of peppermint essential oil
- a few fresh mint leaves (optional)
- Unscented liquid bubble bath (optional)
- Mint tea (optional)

🥛  Method  🥛

If you’re using bubble bath then add this first, then add your milk and your peppermint oil. When your bath has run you can sprinkle a few fresh mint leaves over the top for added minty goodness!

Stay in the bath for as long as you want to, think about washing away what you need healing while you bathe. If you have tea then absolutely think of your intent while you drink it as well!

Happy bathing  🥛
