Offering stones

When taking something from nature, such as herbs, it is nice to give something back. You can leave these lovely air-dry stones in places such as the forest as a way to say thank you. Leaving these in nature is also totally safe for the environment. You can also offer these to a god/goddess.

Recipe:

2 cups of baking soda

1 cup of corn starch

1 ½ cups cold water

Mix until smooth, then put it in a pan and stir until it boils. Keep stirring until it is the consistency of mashed potatoes.

Let it cool and take the clay out of the pan. It should feel really smooth and you will probably play with it alot before you are even going to make the stones :)

I added some herbs and flowers, such as rosemary, lavender, roses, carnations, thyme, cloves, cinnamon, some blue flowers of which I don’t know the name and some orange berries that I found near the park.

I just made a little ball, then made a hole in it and added some herbs.

Now you can decorate it! You can add anything and shape them in any way you want. As you can see I made some squares, hearts, blobs and even an easter egg :) I’ve seen some people use glitter and I recommend you don’t add any glitter since that is actually bad for the environment. I tried using normal white sugar as an alternative, but i noticed that the stones got kind of wet, which I should’ve seen coming. Not sure what’s going to happen when it dries so I’ll keep you guys updated.

I’m so happy with these and I am definitely going to use these for Ostara ^^ Of course you can use this recipe to make anything you want, not just offering stones. 

I hope this was helpful for you guys ^-^

Visualization Exercise: Energy Trees

Crystal grids are great! They have their own energy and are just plain cool to look at. Here’s an exercise to strengthen your crystal grids and visualization skills!

  1. When you have the grid laid out, imagine (with your eyes open OR closed) a sprout of energy blooming from the center crystal.
  2. Take deep breaths and focus on the sprout growing into a larger tree. You can “water” it with your own energy if you want. The tree is made of energy, so it can be any color you want, but I suggest the color to correspond with the intent of the grid.
  3. As the tree grows, see in your mind the roots extending into the outer crystals of the grid. They are what stabilizes it.
  4. When the tree is as big as you want, pause. Feel the tree radiating the energy you want it to have.
  5. Lastly, to add even more power, visualize ripe fruit growing on the branches. When the fruit gets big enough, it explodes in a burst of energy, boosting the intent of the grid and tree even more.
  6. Done! You can tend to the tree if you want, or you can get rid of it. You could even do this without crystals! Just draw some sigils in formation on a paper and grow the tree from them. The possibilities are endless!

I hope this was informative and inspirational! Have a blessed day ✨

Sleep Deprived Rants From TRLTB on Trad Witches.

Trad witches just need to chill k? We’re not that fucking special. Most of us aren’t even that original, like how many times are you gonna regurgitate that same old information about “the familiar spirit lover blah blah blah” before you get tired yo? There is more to magic and to witchcraft than that shit.

And don’t even get me started on the holier than thou “omg trad craft is going main stream oh no the secrets the mysteries, danger tm” bs. as if a)half of you all aren’t just reading andrew chumbley or whatever the fuck and hoping your witchcraft could be like that, and b)insert other hipster elitist bull shit reasoning, and c)magic has always intersected with main stream culture and populace, that’s literally what village folk magicians and cunning people etc did like?!?!?!?!?!?!?. It’s one thing to critique the intersection of capitalism and witchcraft culture, but hot damn some of you all are really hot headed enough to think that you know shit when really, you don’t. I’ve seen your posts and your responses to shit, thinking your bad ass with your cookie cutter Troy publishing cornish witchcraft wanna be bs.

like calm down some of you all talking about “losing the mysteries” and shit just posted on your blogs two weeks ago that you just met your familiar spirit, like you ain’t even encountered the mysteries yet. The fuck.

How do you charge an object?

Let me count the ways! A lot of my favorite ways to charge different items are also good for cleansing, giving them dual effect. Contrary to popular belief, there is no “one right way” to charge an object. These are just some guides and ideas. Charging techniques will also vary depending on the type of object. First, a few of the most general charging techniques. I’m going to kind of answer this in response to cleansing and charging since those two steps are usually linked in my magical practice.

White Light - In this simple technique, you simply visualize white light entering through your crown chakra, flowing through your body and out into the object you want to charge. This is good for on-the-go charging.

Water - Place crystals and other waterproof objects in a shallow dish of water to absorb the element’s healing power and to cleanse. Running water is good for cleansing as well as empowering objects with more active aquatic energy.

Earth - Place the object you want to charge in a sealed bag or other protective container and bury it. This is another cleansing and charging technique. IMPORTANT: Please make sure that whatever you bury is harmless just in case children or animals find and dig it up. If you need to charge an item you don’t want left outside, get a flower pot and fill it with dirt to keep in a safe place. Same effect

Sunlight/Moonlight - This is where the type of object you’re charging matters. Some objects naturally embody solar energy while others tend to embody lunar energy. Sometimes it goes by the “gender” association of the object, but not always. Simply place the object you want to charge on your windowsill or porch where it can soak up as many rays as possible. If you live in the city, don’t worry about finding the perfect placement. The energy can still get to the charging object. I use a full moon to charge objects, the new moon for cleansing, and the sun for both. (Certain objects used in “dark magick” can be charged on the new moon, but that’s another post.)

Music - This one is underrated but highly effective. Listen to music that raises your vibrations according to the purpose the object will serve. Dark, aggressive chants work well for intense magick and hexing, while livelier tunes are ideal for positive magick. It all depends on what raises your energy and your intent. Use a combo of the white light technique and listening to music for very powerful results.

Gazing - Sometimes the best way to charge an object is simply to gaze at it while thinking about your intentions. Say you’re using a quartz crystal for a healing spell later. Stare at it intently until you reach a meditative state, all the while imagining how you will feel once the spell is successful. Visualizing results is more effective than hoping something will happen.

Ice - SOME objects can be cleansed/charged in the freezer if they have strong ice associations. I find this effective for binding and stagnation spells.

Flowers - Or any plant, really. Place items in your garden (again, make sure it’s nothing that will cause harm if it’s found) or at the base of your indoor plants if you live in a city or apartment (me). Plants are always growing (hopefully!) and the energy you put into caring for them will charge the object as well. This is great for long-term charging as the more your plants grow, the more energy the object will absorb. Again, be careful what you choose to charge with this method as it is very powerful. (Although I’m not sure I’ve heard of anyone else doing this?)


A Note About Crystals - It’s important to note that certain crystals are associated with different elemental energies, so you should make sure that any charging technique you use is appropriate for a specific type of crystal. (I cleanse citrine in moonlight and charge it in sunlight, for example. Opinions vary.)

Reversing Vinegar for Reflecting Negative Energy

This spell is a bit aromatic, so its best done in the evening when you’re not going to be going out again immediately after. You need:

• Pure white vinegar
• Several pinches of fennel seed
• A small white bowl
• A piece of jet or onyx

The day before you plan on doing this spell, pour an ounce or two of vinegar into the bowl and add some fennel seed. Let this sit and “steep” until the next day.

On the next night, dip your fingers in the vinegar and dab a little bit on each wrist, your throat and your forehead. Just a little on the forehead because you don’t want vinegar dripping in your eyes.

Sit with your eyes closed, and visualize white energy pushing out from your body at this points and forcing the negative magick back towards the sender. Force it away from you. When you are done, place the stone in the bowl, and leave it for 5 days. After that, pour the vinegar away into the ground.

PSA: You Can Enjoy Witchcraft

It doesn’t have to be all candles and chants. You don’t have to make elaborate ceremonies. You don’t have to spend all of your time researching and wanting to cry because magic has become boring. You don’t have to lose that childlike wonder and merriment that lead you to witchcraft in the first place.

I’m not a very good dancer….but I love to dance. When no one’s watching, I craft masterpieces– lyrical beauties, contemporary epics, enchanting ballets. And so, I take that love of mine and use it to drum up energy. I dance and let the joy that I feel create the energy to fill my spell….and that’s what makes me love witchcraft again.

My piano is my prized possession. When I can’t find the motivation, the drive, the will to cast a spell (even one that I desperately need), I turn to my piano. Instead of chants or endless magical rhymes, I let the music cast the spell for me.

And because of that, I don’t dread witchcraft. I’m not a fan of the ‘bitter experienced witch’ persona– I don’t ever want to be bitter about magic, even if it makes me “experienced”. Incorporate what you love into witchcraft, and magic won’t ever lose the wonder that it held for you when you first discovered it and followed it into the years ahead.
