Black Hole Grounding 💫

Many practitioners like to use various elements and other sources to ground their loose, extra, or negative energy - one of my favorite methods of doing this is Black Hole Grounding. This method ensures that the energy you’re trying to ground or get rid of is compressed into something so small and insignificant that it practically doesn’t exist, instead of just being transferred to another source. This method traps the grounded energy, similar to how the force and gravity of a black hole is so strong that not even light can escape it.

Method:

  1. Dim the lights 
  2. Sit comfortably, whether it be outdoors under the stars or inside - your choice
  3. Feel free to play some ambient music on your computer or phone, perhaps something on YouTube with a backdrop of the cosmos
  4. If you have a crystal you like to use to help you ground, grab it now and hold onto it
  5. Similarly, light a candle or incense that you like to use to help you ground, if you wish
  6. Close your eyes and begin breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth until you reach a relaxed state of mind
  7. Visualize the energy you wish to ground traveling up your spine, out of the top of your head, and into the cosmos - once you can visualize this energy floating in empty space, imagine it being sucked into a black hole until you can no longer see it
  8. Continue rhythmic breathing until you come back to reality, and go about your day as usual

Joy Jar

So I decided to make a “joy jar”, I have been feeling kind of depressed and lack-luster lately. I have and love my black hole jar but wanted to make something for warmth and happiness, so I came up with the Joy Jar. I see it as an opposite to @cosmic-witch‘s Black Hole Jar. Instead of absorbing negative energy this jar sends out joy and happiness when shaken.

Ingredients:

~clear glue

~snow water (because snow makes me happy)

~green food dye (green is my favorite color and makes me happy, it’s also one of the colors for the heart chakra and I thought that appropriate but use whatever color makes you happy)

~glitter (I used purple, yellow stars, and white/iridescent glitter)

add the glitter to the jar, then add your food dye and glue to the water (warm water is easier to get the glue to blend with), pour liquid mixture into it jar with the glitter, think of all of your happiest memories and what makes you happy, smile, laugh, brings you joy. 


I burned incense I associate with happiness around it after the mixture was in the jar. I then sealed it with a purple candle, after it burnt down I added some star glitter to the wet wax and added a little more wax to cover the whole stopper and star glitter. I left my quartz circle around it with the focus on joy and happiness to charge the jar as a final measure. 

Vola! Joy Jar!

New Grimoire/Magic Book!

This has been my project for the past few days! I have been turning part of their book into a secret compartment, and it’s going to be my magic book. This book was originally supposed to be the hold for my engagement ring - but my now husband didn’t quite know what he was doing and he said he messed it up.

So this book with a random almost ring sized hole through 1/3 of the book has been collecting dust for almost 2 years. He said I could do with it what I wanted - so I turned this half complete project into something of use! And isn’t that what cottage witchery/hearth craft if all about? Taking the mundane and making it into magic? I am very happy with how this came out and I can’t wait to start adding to my new book!

Demolition Team

Backstory: We’d recently arrived in a ghost town to face off against a cult of necromancers, had fought our way through several + some pretty tough undead, and were preparing to make a final assault on the leader whom we assumed was holed up in the town hall. In the last fight before this we had found a pot of marvelous pigments, and were considering using this to make a hole looney-tunes style, but were then fired on and things went to hell.

Magus: “Alright, I’m running around the back and painting a hole”

Witch (me): “They know we’re here now, we can’t sneak up on them from behind, we know there’s space on this door (we’d tried opening it but failed), why not just paint there”

*Magus at this point is already half-way around the building, while I’m chasing him and shouting about the pointlessness of sneaking*

Magus: “Okay, fine, I’ll just do it here then!”

*proceeds to basically throw the paint at the wall and make the hole*

Me (ooc): *remembers Uni courses* “I hope that wasn’t a load-bearing wall”

Magus (ooc): “You should just put engineering knowledge on all your characters”

*At this point the DM bursts out laughing, having rolled d% for whether the wall was load bearing and rolling 100%*

DM: “So, as it happens you have made a hole in the wall that supports most of the building’s weight. The wall crumbles, with the remaining skeletons falling and smashing among the rubble as the roof they were standing on collapses. As the dust clears, you look into the remnants of the room and see a man with grey skin and red eyes staring at you, seemingly confused about where the wall went…”

A very improvised version of @cosmic-witch’s Black Hole Jar.

With reduced motor skills, glitter and black dye/water doesn’t end well. I put in some glittery black beads to substitute (I think they’re blue goldstone) and some that I think are snowflake obsidian or an imitation of that. Beads are fun cause they make a nice noise when you shake the thing. #magic

I wrote ‘please be chill absorb negativity’ on black paper in black ink and put that in there, as well as a little piece of velvet cause that shit absorbs light like nothing else it’s impossible to get a decent picture.

Charging it overnight on the windowsill with my obsidian. My illness is either in a flare up or its deteriorating, but either way I’m only up to low energy spells right now. It ended up being very different than I intended but hopefully it’ll do the job 😊🔮

This is a really under appreciated scene.

It took the combined efforts of Thor, Iron Man, and Vision to cause a partial melting of the ‘vibranium’ version of Ultron. They scratched the surface.

The Scarlet Witch tore a hole in Ultron’s chest and ripped out his heart. Using only her mind.

Her mind was more powerful than the combined strength of arguably three of the most powerful beings, one of whom was the physical embodiment of the infinity stone.

The Scarlet Witch had more power than an infinity stone.

So you know the sacred well and wisht waters book I got? I am at the section about storms, seas, winds, and storm witches. Pretty cool!!! :D 

An old curse: a witch would fill a hole with their urine, then beat upon it with their broom to create stormy weather on the sea.
