Really lovely. So had to share…

blowWelcome back! I hope you are having a great day so far and I hope that you can find a little time for yourself today. What did your card say today?

Today’s spell is about writing our one year Halloween wish. Set the tone and the mood, by lighting some candles and have a simmer pot to send out some classic fall scents. Try adding cinnamon stick, nutmeg, cloves, small piece of lemon and a vanilla bean to a small pot of water. Let it simmer slowly, the smell is amazing. Time to pull up a chair at your altar and get to work.

letter2You will need a piece of paper, pen, 2 candles and some twine or strong thread. Start writing a letter to yourself about what you will do, achieve, want and other goals for a year, until October 2018. Be in a good mood and be alone…

Listen, Attend…Re Blog

Though not directly to do with witchcraft or paganism, we are about communication. With ourselves, coven member’s, nature, the gods. How ever you see this, this short blog makes for an interesting read!

Blessings and Namaste

Our work, our relationships, and our lives succeed or fail one conversation at a time. While no single conversation is guaranteed to transform a company, a relationship, or a life, any single conversation can. Speak and listen as if this is the most important conversation you will ever have with this person. It could be. Participate as if it matters. It does.

– Susan Scott

We spend much of our lives in conversation. We converse with our partners, our children, our parents, our workmates, our neighbors, everyone around us. How well we attend to the other person is often another story. We are often chatting while doing something else. Anything else. Driving. Watching TV. Making dinner. Texting. Listening to music. Watching for our stop on a bus or train.

People make a big deal out of young people (in particular) texting or being on social media rather than communicating face to face. In truth, some of those texts or social media conversations are very intense. The participants are attending closely to what the other is saying. Some of those conversations are skimmed and content or context missed. But that’s true in face to face conversations as well. We’re alive inside our own personal thoughts, actions, reactions, but not necessarily to what the other is communicating.

Each conversation we have with each person who is in our lives is important, significant in its own unique way. Conversations are about ebb and flow, the back and forth give-and-take of interactions. When we are distracted or focused on something other than the person with whom we are communicating, we miss cues to the deeper message behind their words.

We all want to feel heard, to be heard, to have another respond to us as though we are, in the moment, the most important person in the world. In truth, in those moments of deepest communication, we are that important. In order to receive that focus from another, we must be willing to give it. We must be willing to slow our pace. We must be willing to stop our attempt to ‘multitask’ and attend to another person. Listen. Attend. It’s important.

How many times have you walked away from a conversation with no recall of its content? or its context? What has distracted you during your most recent conversation with another person? and the one before that? When was the last time you felt, thought or believed that another person was not paying attention while you were speaking to them? How did you feel? What can you do to keep your attention in your next conversation?

Black Salt and Sealing & Protecting Your Home

images

I have made black salt myself. I used the charcoal method as it’s easier than gathering scrapings from a cast iron pot. I don’t have a cast iron pot or an open fire, so pretty difficult.  I’ve also added the ashes left from protective incense.

Rice is a first for me. I’ve not seen that used, as it’s used the the article below. May have to try that one next time.

So take a look, as it also gives you guidance on how to seal and protect your home from unwanted spirits, which involves using black salt.

Early Signs of a Haunting…

I spotted this blog post about spotting the early signs of a haunting.  Thought it was very interesting. I’ve encountered many of these myself. In one work place encountere sudden nasty smells that went as quickly as they arrived. And hidious feelings of not being alone. I myself have always sensed spirits and seen them too, I am a bit of a magnet and so they’ll  often gravitate to me and and as an empath I have felt their emotions, yes that is possible and it can be incredibly upsetting.

My old home was haunted by 3 spirits. One of which was very mischievous. He’d take things and return them to the same plays days, weeks and one item 2 years after it went missing. Other than that they weren’t bothersome. We’d here them walking around upstairs or hear a door close. I used to talk to them and light incense daily in their honour as they were pleasent souls.

I did get the odd passing soul, who’d visit. One that caused issues. I actually saw with my own eyes it throw something across my bedroom. My own spirit guardian (he used to be a house spirit and he latched onto me. I see him as my guide now) intervened. After that I put uo a protective barrier to keep anything negative away from my home.

Hope you enjoy this interesting article as I did.

The haunting season is upon us. A few weeks ago I talked about the most common types of hauntings here . Today I am talking about signs and symptoms, the early stages of a haunting or ghostly presence. These are not all necessarily bad things, and often times we can coexist or even just live with it. […]
