The reason I stopped posting here was because I had it in my head to stop separating my blogs. I was going to start posting Pagan and Wiccan things on my main blog, because I didn’t care who knew. welllllllll that didn’t exactly happen. I’ve also been kind of lazy in my studies. I need to start posting here again. So if anyone wants me to check out their blog, please like this post. I definitely need more blogs to follow.
Also, keep in mind that I have to follow back from reidesuu.tumblr.com
I’m addicted to lavender, recently, it works better than paracetamol (acetaminophen) for headaches.I like to do the following.
Put a drop on your wrist and rub the other wrist with it.
Put a drop on each collar bone
After rubbing wrists together press them on the corers of your eyebrows and make small circluar motions for 30 secs.
Be careful not to add too much or to get it on your eyes. If your sensitive you can dilute any oil (which you should do for other oils) with olive oil.
Q U E E N o f S W O R D S
With her blade the Queen of Swords slices through lies and deceptions to the heart of truth. She is honesty and inner knowledge, sending forth her winged seekers into the world. They are an extension of her being and her soul.
The blinding white is the color of purity, honesty, clarity, uncompromised balance; but also of distance, and sometimes death, for sometimes to get to truth one must cast off the old to discard pretense and guile.
The Queen of Swords is an intelligent woman, loyal, witty, and humorous in her forthright way. She is valued for her accurate perceptions of the world around her, and her experiences.
In the language of flowers, purple dragon lilies are symbols of inner strength, and white chrysanthemums of truth.
I’m going to talk about hematite! Anyone who knows me, is probably aware that I am obsessed with this stuff - it’s the one “crystal” that I feel really in tune with. Here’s a picture of some hematite for you!
It looks a little like metal, and feels similar to metal, but it’s not metal! Hematite is an ore of iron though (contains iron), but it’s in mineral form! It can be red, reddish brown, or black.
An interesting fact:
Chinese doctors have long used hematite as a cure for sickness! It was also used in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia as a healing stone.
Properties of Hematite:
Almost anything and everything you can think of! Hematite has been associated with luck, prosperity, legal matters, confidence, vitality, calming, health - and it stimulates the absorption of iron in the blood, physically. It also absorbs heat.
Hematite is often used in jewellery, but not many people actually realise what this stone is, or can do. Obviously, I’m biased (and maybe slightly insane) but hematite is good for EVERYTHING. Personally, it was my first pendulum, something that kept me calm as a child, and a way to soothe my burning headaches. But that’s just me - find out what it can do for you!
I love hematite so much. It’s a wonderful grounding stone, and it soothes me.
My next purchase: Magical moon crystal ~ mystery, intuition, dreams, insight.
I’m consistently seeing arguments back and forth. Many pagans are pointing out the fact that this is completely untrue, and that Christians did not “steal” anything. I know this happens quite a bit, regarding Christians stealing this or Pagans stealing that. And the constant arguments about “The Burning Times” oh my god. It all makes my head spin. Here is MY opinion.
I don’t care who stole what, or if you think something was stolen. This is a completely personal spiritual path for me, and I will worship and celebrate the way I want it. If you have been directly persecuted for your faith, I feel for you. Spirituality and faith are sore subjects for many people, and it can often cause heated arguments. But I have never been persecuted in my lifetime or during the time in which I have been studying paganism. I could care less about all the arguments all the time, and I am definitely no history buff so I’m not going to go on long rants about the “true” history of paganism.
I just want to worship, celebrate nature, and feel close to the God and Goddess.
This spell is one I saw on tumblr as an incantation, without much description to go with it, so I adapted it into a full spell.
1) Take a small tea light(one of those tiny disc-like candles) and light it.
2) Draw on energy from wherever. Yourself, the Earth, The Moon, The Sun, your patron god or goddess, whatever works best for you.
3) Charge the lit candle with this energy, and recite the following (I did NOT come up with this part):
“By this candle I do sleep,
hidden from the day, in the night so deep
O Lady Moon, guide my dreams,
cover me with your beautiful beams
As the candle flame dies,
please close my eyes
Allow me to wake
in the warmth of The Sun”
4) Once you’ve finished charging the candle and chanting, imagine your request being sent away with the flickering flame.
5) Place the candle somewhere where it won’t be at risk for falling and starting a fire (I placed mine in my “cauldron”, which is a small clay pot with raised edges).
6) Get into bed, and you should find it much easier to fall asleep. It will also wake you up earlier than usual once the sun is up, or at least it did in my case.
I kept waking up whenever the clouds parted and the sun shone in my window. If you don’t want to be woken up after dawn, I’d suggest you try leaving out the last two lines of the chant. I also found it much easier to recall my dreams with this, so this spell could be used as a dream memory booster as well. Good luck!
