Three Elements Home Blessing and Protection Ritual

Supplies:

  • Incense, or Sage Bundle - for smoke cleansing, to cleanse and protect with the “Sky”
  • Purified Water in a small bowl (optional ingredients include salt or herbs) - for saining, to cleanse and protect with the “Sea”
  • Protection Salt and Herbs (I’ll be adding lavender for peace and purification, and rosemary for protection and remembrance) - for protection of doorways, windows, and portals - to protect with the “Land”
  • Chant, Spell or Prayer of Intention - This step is best if you make it yourself, with your magical paradigms. Here is mine - “By the power of elements three, by the power of land, sky, and sea, I cleanse and protect this home to keep us safe from all harm.”  I also have one for each element e.i. “By the power of the sea, keep harm away from me”.

Ritual:

In an empty house, or apartment, open all doors and windows, including closets, bathrooms, etc. Start at what is to be the heart or center of the home, (the hearth, the bedroom, the living area, kitchen, etc) walk walk the perimeter of the home clockwise. If you wish to banish all spirits, spirits that mean you harm, all entities, whatever it is- do so at this time. Once you set your protections, you may accidentally banish or piss off ‘people’ you want to be friendly with. Walk the perimeter and focus on all the good memories you want to make here, the creating that will be done here, the hospitality you will offer guests, etc. 

Sky - Come back to start and light your “Sky” representation. Walk clockwise, chanting your spell. Aim the smoke at the ceiling, walking the perimeter of every wall and every room, including in closets, and around the shower, following the line of the ceiling. (not cupboards in the kitchen, because you might not be able to get the smell out later). Think of the smoke as banishing any previous tenants memories, bad emotions, spirits or energies you don’t want in your new home. End at your predesignated heart of the home.

Sea - Take your bowl of water, your “Sea”, and start again. this time dip your fingers into the bowl and flick water all around, aiming at the floorboard. Chant while you walk clockwise, focusing on the protection of the salt and water, creating a white light around your home as you sprinkle the water. Alternatively you can add to a spray bottle and spray the water. If you wish, sprinkle or ‘paint’ the water around any openings - mirrors, drains, windows - to protect from unwanted entrances for spirits or energies.  End at the heart of the home.

Land - Now take your “Land” representation of salt and herbs, and walk counter clockwise. Chant your house blessing or the chant for salt if you wish (if you chant the salt blessing, do one more pass clockwise saying you final home blessing). Sprinkle salt in a line across any doorway or window to outside the home. The salt should stay on the window sills if possible. The salt can be swept up from the front door if you wish, just ‘paint’ some salt water instead, after it is swept up. Sprinkle some around drains as well, and across wall mirrors. This closes up any magical or physical doorways of outside influence. End back at the heart of the home.

If you have a backyard or patio, you may want to extend the protections out there as well. Use cascarilla powder (powdered eggshells) around any dirt or lawn you have, use pure water with no salt, and maybe use wind chimes or a bell to represent the sky instead of the smoke, if you wish to not arouse suspicion. Please don’t use salt on the land. Its bad for plants and snails.

Home Protection Cont. :

I will be setting up my home altar at this “heart of the home” and from there it will be an easy place to renew the protections. I would recommend renewing the protections once a year, or whenever you feel you need a little extra boost of protection or cleansing. Since you originally did this when no furniture was in place, renewing the protections may seem hard. I prefer to smoke cleanse so that is a little easier for me, just say a protection or cleansing spell at our home altar and walk clockwise around the house with your smoke. Its gets into all the tight spots, now that there is furniture in the way, easier.  The spray bottle works well for this as well. I would recommend renewing one element at a time, in place of all three. 

Don’t forget that other protections are still great to uses as well. I will also be hanging my witches’ ladder made of hag stones by the door for protection, having potted plants for cleansing and protection like lavender, and hanging some wind chimes to know when the Good Folk are near.

Reverse Falls 

Written by: an incredible anon

“Mediocre,” Mason spat under his breath, watching his sister smile toothily at the cheering audience as she pulled a knife cleanly through her neck. It was a pathetic illusion; he could do so much better, but she never gave him the closing performance, took all the glory for herself and left him to brood in the shadows of the wings until she signaled him on stage to bow with her.

In working on this comic, I got to thinking about something:  
I’m glad we know more about what fueled this moment now:

All of their past and all anger aside, Journal 3 showed us that Ford was in fight mode.  Moments before this scene, he was battling literal demons in what is basically Hell after 30 years of preparation.  The flight half of fight of flight was long out the interdimensional window (portal?) at this point.  Everything inside of him was directed at “destroy Bill.”  If not for that, I wonder what would have been different.  (AU where the portal opens when Ford is just randomly wandering some other dimension?)

But if we take that a step further into the realm of implications, it gets worse.  It’s pretty heavily implied that this was a suicide mission for Ford.  He 100% did not expect to survive his encounter with Bill.  Stan wasn’t facing his brother here.  He was facing a suicidal man in fight mode who’d been betrayed, who’d lost everything and who’d been denied his revenge and the consequences he believed he deserved for the mistakes he’d made.   

Stan saved him but in that moment, he didn’t want to be saved.

(Of course Stan had no way of knowing that.  He was still working off of the instruction to “do something!”  And I think he would have saved him anyway if he did know, but he might have been more prepared to be punched by knowing he was getting involved in a volatile situation.)

(Oh…  How about an AU where the portal opens right as Ford destroys Bill and Stan saves him at the last moment before the Nightmare realm implodes?  I have a feeling this would have played out a little differently…)

You know that story of the Russian cosmonaut? So, the cosmonaut, He’s the first man ever to go into space. Right? The Russians beat the Americans. So he goes up in this big spaceship, but the only habitable part of it’s very small. So the cosmonaut’s in there, and he’s got this portal window, and he’s looking out of it, and he sees the curvature of the Earth for the first time. I mean, the first man to ever look at the planet he’s from. And he’s lost in that moment. And all of a sudden this strange ticking… Begins coming out of the dashboard. Rips out the control panel, right? Takes out his tools. Trying to find the sound, trying to stop the sound. But he can’t find it. He can’t stop it. It keeps going. Few hours into this, begins to feel like torture. A few days go by with this sound, and he knows that this small sound… will break him. He’ll lose his mind. What’s he gonna do? He’s up in space, alone, in a space closet. He’s got 25 days left to go… with this sound. So the cosmonaut decides… the only way to save his sanity… is to fall in love with this sound. So he closes his eyes… and he goes into his imagination, and then he opens them. He doesn’t hear ticking anymore. He hears music. And he spends the sailing through space in total bliss… and peace.

Another Earth (2011)

anonymous asked:

Can a shield "look like" anything as long as it carries the intention of protecting you? How exactly do you "check" shields? I'm having trouble sensing my own energy without a lot of mental effort, so it's hard to tell what's going on with it.

FAQ: Shield 102; visualizations and checking visualizations

A lesson was taught to me a long time ago; sometimes when nothing is working, it’s because we’re going about things in the worst possible way. Relax, forget everything Tumblurians told you (even me!), and begin again with a child’s gaze.

Checking your own energy isn’t something that needs to take a huge deal of effort. These energies are not hidden under layers of obfuscation; they are surface level. Close your eyes, wonder what your shield looks like, and let stuff come to you. As easy as that.

Shields may absolutely look like anything. Choose forms you can strongly imagine/visualize with good power and detail. Form relates to function. Here are some examples:

  • A chain link fence may keep out large energy masses and spirits but let lots of “smaller” energies or spirits through.
  • A wall of water may certainly keep out many energies, but a malicious water aligned being could simply walk through it.
  • A solid wall made of concrete or brick will keep out nearly anything depending on its construction but may leave you feeling cut off or even a bit claustrophobic

There are however easy ways to get around any problem that arises with creativity and artistry.

  • A chain link fence may have a wire mesh running through it to filter out finer “particles”.
  • Create a four-layered elemental shield, one for each element. Much harder for any being to simply walk through it then.
  • Add magical windows or portals to a solid wall in order to create basic energy flow through shields.

My best tip: create many, many layers.

Just A Normal Rick and Morty Adventure

I want there to be an an episode entirely focused on Rick teaching Morty to drive. Like there’s no Universal Mission, there’s no dimension-hopping Madness, just the entirety of the episode, in a car, with Jerry in the backseat constantly being nit picky about Rick’s teaching methods and on who should be teaching Morty while they are also trying to juggle telling Morty the rules of the road, and which way to go, causing Morty to go through evading ongoing traffic, cop cars, detour and end o the road signs, and just getting plain lost. While also is panicking in the driver’s seat freaking out an making constant wrong turns and last minute car signals, causing them to drive past so many places and strange towns and dark neighborhoods, making Rick shoot anyone suspicious without even looking away from his fight from Jerry.
With the end of the episode show in that Morty has literally driven them to buttfuck nowhere, and Rick pulling out his portal gun and exclaiming, “And this is why cars are stupid.” And puts his arm out the window to shoot a portal in front of the car for Morty to drive into. The show ends with them all exiting the car finally by nightfall in front of the house with Morty mentioning how even though he was a panicking mess, he would like to do it again with just Rick. And Rick says “It’s stupid and useless, but whatever.” But smiling to himself as he watches his pep in his step grandson walk up the front porch steps, happy at the thought of enjoying even the simplest adventures with his Grandpa.

zoebelle9  asked:

I don't know if you actually taking prompts from the sentences post, but if you are, Ten x Rose and 18? If not, nevermind and I will slink off ;p

We are a story slowly unfolding…

Ten x Rose
GitF fix-it

“Rose, I have to save her.”

Jealousy clouded her vision and broke her heart. But she nodded, unsure what else to do. The Doctor had to save her, she knew that. Couldn’t go about letting such a famous and important woman such as Madame du Pompadour die at the hands of creepy murderous robots from the 51st century.

She opened her mouth to speak.

I know.
or
Of course you do.
or
Come back to me.

What she said was, “All right.” Strangled words that conveyed her jealous heartache more than Rose wished.

What else could she say? She had no hold on him—or his hearts. And after all this time certainly knew the perils of changing history. Rose managed a smile, or hoped she did.

The Doctor turned for the window portal into Versailles and Rose watched him do so. It hurt—her heart, her soul, fear and understanding and heartache choked her. But she didn’t stop him. How could she?

He whirled back to face her and once more took her by the shoulders. All the breath left her in a rush.

The way he looked at her…

It shone in his eyes, a whirl of longing that held her immobile and sent her heart pounding wildly. A depthless darkness, more than love—an adoration, desperation, a sort of worship she’d sometimes wondered if she saw in his gaze but always too quickly covered.

“Doctor.” It was nothing more than a whispered word, so much more than his name, but every ounce of love, every longing touch for more.

“This isn’t the end, Rose Tyler.” He kissed her forehead, a gentle caress of yearning that made her hope. “We are a story slowly unfolding—this isn’t the end of us yet, I promise you.”

Rose caught his hand, though she saw time ticking inevitably away as surely as he did. “Come back to me, Doctor.”

He squeezed her hand. “Always, Rose. Never doubt that.”

Rose watched him leave then, leaping with poor Arthur the horse through the window. “Oh, I hope he didn’t hurt the horse.”

Mickey gave her an odd look but she ignored him.

The Doctor would return. Their story, after all, had only just begun.

So as a big Hades fan (as you can see from my Hades pin collection) I was super excited to try the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, which is an interactive game visitors can play at the part with cards that can active windows and make a portal appear (sort of like the Harry Potter World with wands) with starts an animation where you can battle villains with the cards.

What is cool is it stars Hades as the one who wants to take over the Kingdom and has him recruit different Disney villains. It makes sense that since a lot of villains died in their various movies he would have access to them, like offering Maleficent a “Get Out of the Underworld Free” card or finding Ursula in the Styx River. My favorite is when they portray him in different art styles (like the Lion King and Sleeping Beauty style) and under a different identity that relates to the movie he is recruiting the villain from, like to Yzma he appears as the Incan God of Death, to Dr. Facilier as his “Friend on the Other Side,” to Ratcliffe as the Lord of the East Underworld Trade company, or an “underworld” crime boss to Cruella DeVille. Really love that they blended Hades into the mythologies of the Disney movies. I would love to see them release the animations as a mini-movie or something.

With absolute confidence + pure love recognize your reflection as it is. A spirit strong enough to birth every door, window, key and portal necessary for your evolution at will. See it. Everything that you envision. Everything that is there, is here now.
