pixiv: incense

anonymous asked:

how can i enchant or bless something to become a protection amulet? i apologize if this is a silly question but i think you would have good information

  • Find a pendant or trinket that has meaning to you, and is (for you) personally symbolic for protection, e.g. if I wish to create a protective amulet, I might choose a pendant shaped like a sword.
  • Cleanse the object to get rid of previous energies attached to it by holding it in your right hand and visualising a brilliant white light cleansing the object. 
  • Get a burning candle, a bowl of water, incense (preferably Frankincense, Myrrh, Ginseng, Cinnamon, or Dragon’s Blood), and salt at the ready.
  • Hold the amulet with a string or a chain in your right hand, and sprinkle it with salt while stating out loud, “I consecrate you with the element of Earth.”
  • Pass the amulet through the incense smoke and state out loud, “I consecrate you with the element of Air.”
  • Next, carefully pass the amulet through the candle flame while stating, “I consecrate you with the element of Fire.”
  • Finally, depending on your spiritual preference, you can lift up the amulet above you in the air and say, “You are now consecrated in the name of the God and Goddess.” or “You are now consecrated in the name of Tetragrammaton.” or you may choose specific deities. If you wish to keep it secular, you may say, “You are now consecrated in the name of the Source/Universe.” 
  • Cup both of your hands over the amulet and bring it close to your heart, visualising a protective white light pouring from above into the object and state, “I charge this amulet to protect “x”/me. So mote it be.”
  • It is done

Witches on a Budget

I’m gonna start posting Witch tips for people who don’t have a whole lot of money if anyone has suggestions, let me know.

So tip #1: making your own incense

I don’t always have enough money to buy incense, the only shop in town that sells it is a smoke shop that you can’t enter unless 19+ and they sell it for ten bucks for like 3 sticks. Plus, the incense is loaded with perfumes and chemicals which just aren’t my thing. So I’ve started making my own. It’s sooooo easy and most online tutorials are super expensive and complex.

*Crushing your herbs is optional

In a bowl, mix together the following ingredients
•dry (crushed) herbs of your choice (you can Google what kind of herbs to burn) I chose lavender, chamomile, and rosemary.
•honey (keep mixing in more honey until herbs create a thick paste)

After mixing, form into balls or cones and create a flat base.

Leave balls/cones to dry out for a few days.

Then once dry, place in incense burner and burn.

(Bonus, these last longer than the sticks and once it’s fully burned you can make incense with the ashes)

“My home is protected” Spell

Hey all witches alike! I just made my very first spell and it worked WONDERS so I thought I would share it with you!

This spell acts like the spell that was put up around the castle in the Harry Potter: Deathly Hallows film. It has sort of a protective dome feeling to it, almost hidden from negative energy.

Originally posted by my-harry-potter-generation

What you need:

- a white or black candle (both would be ideal)

- protective incense, in this spell I used a mix of Amber, Cedar, Pine and Sandle

- loose sage and a fire-proof container

- Smokey Quartz or clear quartz (again, both would be ideal)

- Blue Kyanite crystal for an extra boost of energy

Arrange the incense in the middle, surrounded by the crystals (placement is up to you!) with the white candle on your left and the sage on your right. Do this near a window that will open close to the entry of your house/apartment. Breathe onto the window and in the fog draw your favourite protection sigil, charge it with your intent, then carry the energy in your hands as you turn towards the rest of the room and hand it to the flame of your candle. Then say:

My home is protected, 

nothing shall pass.

As I open this window,

let the smoke carry out the dark…

~open your window, take a deep breath in, then exhale, envisioning all the negative energies leaving your space~

And as I close this window, 

let it be a barrier.

Only light can enter now.

As I wish, so it shall be.

~close your window~

When you’re done, let your candle burn and blow out the sage and incense. If you try this, let me know how it works! (:

May The Bridges I Burn Light My Path

Simple spell to weed negative people from your life: 

Best time to do this: New moon 

Tools: Incense, fire proof container, a hot shower 

Take your incense to the bathroom and light them (if safe). While taking a shower, imagine the smoke and water working to cleanse you. 

The water is washing away physical debris while the smoke is cleansing your soul. Now, think about the positive people in your life. 

Compare how they’ve helped you to how negative people have brought you down. Think of how much better your life would be without the negativity. 

Sometimes it’s negative thoughts instead of people. We want to burn those bridges as well. 

The ashes from the incense can be saved for black salts. 

The Problem With Having Small Pets as a Witch

The problem with having small pets (rodents, birds, reptiles, amphibians, etc.) as a witch means you can’t burn anything that puts off smoke because their tiny lungs are so small that the amount of smoke we can breath and still be fine is 10000000000× less fine to them. Wanna burn some sage to get rid of that negativity clog in your room? NOPE. Need to burn some herbs or some shit? WRONG. Wanna burn some incense to help with a spell or just make your room smell nice? WRONG AGAIN. Granted, you could have your incense like 2 inches away from your open window and that should be fine but I mean DIFFICULT. You love your animals but you’ve also gotta get rid of that nasty ass energy and it isn’t going away with salt water so I mean what do you do? WELL HAVE I GOT A SOLUTION FOR YOU FRIEND.

0: lmao don’t burn shit on a regular basis. At most, once every other week..
1: Open all Windows. Open. Them. All.
1.5: If its incense, just put it as close to the window as possible as you can (and I mean fucking close) and disregard the rest.
2: Get a fan ready because boy oh boy you’re gonna need it.
3: Cover all of the tanks/cages/what have you, with towels. Don’t leave an inch open buddy. (No, this isnt going to suffocate them, towels are just acting as a filter to get all that nasty shit out)
4: Burn yo shit AS FAST AS YOU CAN no longer than 7 minutes because the smoke will murder your babies.
5: Put it out and IMMEDIATELY TURN THAT FAN ON, AIMED OUT A FUCKING WINDOW.
6: Run the fan for 10-30 minutes
7: Take off the towels AND ENJOY YOUR ALIVE CHILDREN

You are welcome.

Quick witch tip

Incense! Incense is the best. 

You can ground with it, cleanse with it, meditate with it, scry with it, charge sigils with it, accompany spells or tarot readings with it. You can pick scents that align with your intent. You can just wave it around and try and make smoke rings and call it meditation! It’s so cheap and versatile for witchcraft and innocuous enough for witches who can’t be open about their craft.
