Who is your Shadow?

I often struggled when looking into Shadow work, and discovering my shadow self. I thought that there was a textbook way I had to follow to ‘correctly’ discover my shadow side/being. I quickly discovered the other day that I knew her all along. I’m not sure if this is a ‘gift’ per se, especially since I believe anyone is capable of meeting their shadow self, but I have found it exceptionally easier to interact with her on a daily basis. This is the best way I can explain how I fully ‘discovered’ her.

-I was doing a BOS prompt, (book of shadows, for those of you who are new to witchcraft or not a practitioner:). The prompt was to draw or paint an image of my shadow self. I started thinking, and instantly got an image in my head.

-It might take a few minutes, and I lowkey had an identity crisis, trying to determine the differences between my true self and my shadow, it was interesting! Lol

-The image you first get, might seem confusing, or it might seem like you are just ‘making it up’ as you go. This is when you’re doing it RIGHT.

-My shadow is named Evangeline, which is something else I recently learned as well while working with her. All I did was meditate briefly, uncovering her name.

-When you are able to identify your shadow with a name, and certain physical/emotional characteristics, you will most likely doubt yourself. I know I did, considering most of my answers resided solely in my thoughts. That does not mean you’re wrong, if anything, trust that instinct.

-Draw, sketch, paint your shadow. Dedicate a page or more to them, writing out their characteristics, and what they stand for.

-Another thing, my shadow Evangeline, is not my ‘evil twin’. She is my defender, protector, and wrath. She is practically my inner storm, which is much different from the stereotypical ‘dark-side’ aspect.

-The last bit of advice that I can give is to be open minded, Your shadow may present itself to you in different ways, especially in times of need…be willing to accept it!

Korra:  Raava, I missed you. Where have you been?
Raava: I have always been inside of you.

(x)

Love is found

Aries:  In their bright smile, in their ability to lift everyone’s spirits around them, similar to the way a candle lights the darkness

Taurus: In the way they hold you, in their tacit yet physical reminder that they won’t let you go, both literally and metaphorically 

Gemini:  In morning cups of coffee, in the way they seem to energize you in a way no drug is capable 

Cancer:  In the times when they tell you their secrets, in their willingness to share with you their weakness and vulnerability  

Leo:  In one on one conversations, in their subtle way of saying that you are more worthy of getting closer to them than most crowds

Virgo: In holding their hand, in their invitation to not only share their life with you, but to go on journeys with you

Libra:  In good mornings and good nights, in their ability to make such generic and overly used phrases have meaning and genuine emotion

Scorpio:  In their desire to stay up late with you, in their intense want to become lost with you in a conversation before sleep gently takes them

Sagittarius:  In the way they criticize, in their dedication to seeing their friends become the best version of themselves 

Capricorn:  In self-indulgement, in bubble baths and ample sleep, in their refusal to sacrifice their happiness for others

Aquarius:  In their inclination to tease you, in the way they express humor because they are often too bashful to express affection instead

Pisces:  In how they remind you to keep safe. in their desperate need to keep those they care for safe from hurt 

Being A Magical Practitioner:
1. Question everything you are told and read.
2. Hell even question this post. Only YOU can decide what is right and what works for you.
3. What may work for someone else may not work for you. What may work for you may not work for someone else.
4. Your practices are YOUR practices.

Support:
1. Ancestral veneration is so important.
2. Communicate with your ancestors daily.
3. They will help and guide you on your journey more than you will ever know.
4. You have several guardian angels and guardian spirits built into your existence, get to know them.
5. There is magic within you. Embrace your own power.
6. Mind your own magic. You don’t have to do what everyone else is doing. You don’t have to explain your practices to anyone else. Do you. 

Tools:
1. White candles are fantastic for every single purpose.
2. You can print your own labels for glass candles and glue them on plain glass candles.  You will save money this way in the long run.
3. You don’t need every single tool to start off with.
4. Water is life. Water keeps the flow of your magic, filters and is a conduit to you and spirit. Keep clear glasses of water in your home. Change them often.
5. Your altar space doesn’t need to be fancy.
6. You do not need expensive herbs.
7. Mirrors and Magnets are the best tools closest to crystals to magnify and amplify your magic.
8. The bible is a book full of spells and divination.

Herbs:
1. You can get most of the herbs you need from your local super market and dollar store.
2. Salt: Protection or cursing. Various Powdered Peppers: Protection and Cursing. Cinnamon: Money and Lust work. Basil: Money and Luck. Bay Leaves: Protection and Granted Wishes. Rosemary: Protection. Chamomile: Peaceful Home Workings. Cloves: Protection, Love, Control and Bindings. Eucalyptus: Cleansing. Thyme: Purification, Healing.

Floor Washes:
1. Do Floor Washes in odd numbers. One series to remove the negativity and one series to bring in good energy.
2. Curse Killer Floor Wash: Hot Water, Ammonia, Lemon, Salt (optional)
Open Roads Floor Wash: Cold Water, Florida Water, Parsley, Mint Leaves, Coconut Water (Strained of pulp)

Various Cleansings:
1. Cigar or tobacco smoke is a great alternative to sage sticks.
2.  You can cleanse yourself with an egg and a glass of water.
3. You can cleanse yourself with lemons, limes and oranges.
4. When cleansing your home make sure to open your windows and doors.
5. Start from the back of the home towards the front and then to various rooms to confuse the negative energy.
6. A can of beer and salt will cleanse your aura.
7. When you cleanse yourself, make sure to replace what you removed with good energy.

Powders:
1. You do not need to purchase branded powders from metaphysical shops.
Money/luck powder:  Bank dirt, Shredded currency and corn starch.
Love/Passion powder: Rose petals, Cinnamon and corn starch.
Open Roads powder: Dirt from four corners of a crossroads and corn starch. Add three dimes to bottom of container.
Cursing Powder: Graveyard dirt from criminals grave, black pepper, red pepper, cayenne pepper.
Protection Powder: Church Dirt, Psalm 91 passage from bible, Psalm 23 from the bible grinded into a powder.

Oils:
1. Do not buy oils from the botanicas and metaphysical shops. Most are made with mineral oil, a synthetic fragrance and colorant. If you want that, Get yourself some baby oil, food coloring and scented fragrance oil of your choosing. I wouldn’t recommend it though.
2. Get yourself some Olive oil, Sunflower oil, Grapeseed oil and Vegetable oil at the supermarket along with some Vitamin E oil for preservative. You can make your own charged oils with herbs and a few glass bottles.
3. My favorite simple oils:
Lust Oil: Sunflower oil base, Vitamin E,  Cinnamon stick, red rose petals, and Vanilla Bean
Money Oil: Grapeseed oil base, Vitamin E, Cinnamon stick, nutmeg, basil and thyme.
Protection Oil: Olive Oil base, Vitamin E, Rosemary, Basil, Eucalyptus
Life Force Oil: For when you need extra power in your magic. Olive oil base, 3 drops of blood.
Blessing Oil: Olive Oil, Vitamin E and Psalm 91 torn from the bible.

Deities:
1. You do not have to have a deity in your practice.
2. You can practice secular magic. Secular magic is a practice that does not refer to, venerate and otherwise “work with” any deities (or, in some cases, any supernatural beings at all). This is perfectly okay.
3. If working with deity, never promise what you can’t provide.
4. Feed your spirits and deities. This can be with food, alcohol, energy, light, darkness, anything.
5. Know the spirits and deities you are working with.
6. Listen to your intuitive pulls when it concerns your deity.
7. No one can tell you the right or wrong way to worship and work with your deity BUT you should learn their mythos and their base wants, needs and what offends them.

Misc Magic Info:
1. Your magic will not punish you because you can’t practice every single day. We are human, and sometimes life gets the best of us. It is okay.
2. Magic should never ever replace mental and physical health diagnosis and services from healthcare professionals.
3. “Black magic” is a racist term used to demonize the practices of people of color that are seen as “barbaric” or “uncivilized” to Europeans. Therefore “White magic” is considered good and “black magic” is considered bad. Energy is energy. Do not allow anyone to dictate your practice. That racist term is bullshit. Our melanin is magic. Our cultures and our roots are power.
4. You can purchase a Tarot deck from Amazon. You don’t need it gifted to you.
5. ALWAYS have a fire extinguisher in your home.
6. NEVER leave candles unattended in your home.
7. Coffee grounds speed up work.
8. Meditate. Leave the fuckery of the day at the end of the day. You will thank yourself in the long run.
9. Keep info to yourself. Not everyone needs to know what you are doing or all your secrets.
10. Do not bring your shoes into your home.

in every world, in every realm, in every version of the story, neal and emma find their way to one another.

20 Facts About Ghosts That Haunt

1. Spirits that haunt, want your attention.

2. Spirits have absolutely no sense of time.

3. Spirits do not always realize that they are dead. To them, its like they are stuck in an aweful nightmare.
