Days of Witchery: 23. A Favourite Candle.

This is my wonderful, favorite chakra candle, Sri Yantra. There are more candles with only one color for just that chakra, but this is my favorite. Could be because I like rainbows… ^^

 

A Bit of Absence

It’s been a bit of absence in the blog for some days. I’ve had a visitor from the Sweden mainland for the weekend and I’ve also been celebrating Mabon. But I’m probably going to start posting tonight or tomorrow again!

Just an update to show I’m alive. ^^

Blessed Be and Happy Mabon!

Days of Witchery: 22. Current Moon Phase.

Waning Crescent

A time for banishing, cleaning out the old and make place for the new, also known as the Old Moon. A time to beat addiction and getting rid of negativity.

Days of Witchery: 21. A Favourite Scent.

I would probably say usually that I love the smell of spices like cinnamon and cloves, like yogi tea or gingerbread. But right now I’ve found another scent that I adore (except the smell of my boyfriend), and that is Black Coconut Incense. I don’t have a picture specifically, but I think that an actual coconut is just as good. ^^

Study Stones: Fluorite

Fluorite helps with your concentration and intuition, a great stone when you need to sit down and do your schoolwork or just your usual work-work. It helps you take a step back, seeing the forest instead of just the trees. Fluorite helps with objectivity, truth, intellect, consciousness,  cleansing and harmony. It negates disorganization, depression and disruptive behavior.

One of my favorite stones, this was my “first” stone, together with amethyst. Because of this I have a special bond with the fluorite.

What’s your “first” stone?

Blessed Be, Vaettr

Days of Witchery: 20. Tarot or Oracle Card, and its Meaning.

You are The Lovers

Motive, power, and action, arising from Inspiration and Impulse.

The Lovers represents intuition and inspiration. Very often a choice needs to be made.

Originally, this card was called just LOVE. And that’s actually more apt than “Lovers.” Love follows in this sequence of growth and maturity. And, coming after the Emperor, who is about control, it is a radical change in perspective. LOVE is a force that makes you choose and decide for reasons you often can’t understand; it makes you surrender control to a higher power. And that is what this card is all about. Finding something or someone who is so much a part of yourself, so perfectly attuned to you and you to them, that you cannot, dare not resist. This card indicates that the you have or will come across a person, career, challenge or thing that you will fall in love with. You will know instinctively that you must have this, even if it means diverging from your chosen path. No matter the difficulties, without it you will never be complete.

Days of Witchery: 19. Fire Element.

Passion, curiosity. An inquisitive flame of creativity. Fire is what drives us all in life, what makes us burn for causes and other people. This is my intuitive summary of fire.

Yesterday I was sitting trying to write on one of my stories (a HP fanfiction) and I got stuck. I lit some candles and I could immediately concentrate better. while I  was writing, the flame in my medieval lantern (made of wood and pig bladder) started to flicker and didn’t stop until I went over to the flame. It could have been some little wind irritating the fire, but it felt like it was a little fire sprite coming for a visit, helping me with my writing…

Have you had any experience with the element fire?

First Guestblogger: The Robin

This is the first guestblogging on my blog and the writer is a good friend of mine, who wishes to remain anonymous, therefore they’re using the name Robin. Enjoy!

I sincerely believe I don’t have anything interesting enough to write about, but being friends with Vaettr means that I constantly hear things like “you should write a guest entry in my blog”, “you could blog about that”, “blog bloggie blogblog”. And Vaettr is a pretty damn good friend, and I thrive on making other people happy, so here we go.

I’m also in the closet. Not the broom kind (pretty sure here), or the gay kind (not quite as sure here), or any commonly defined kind of closet. I am a scientist who hides her strong desire of magic to be real. I believe in math, physics, long academic texts full of references, and tell everyone thats -all- I believe.

I also know that if there was an article in Nature, or any other as reputable journal, showing a mathematical proof of magic, I would drop my science career in an instant to become a witch.

I don’t believe in ghosts, but I find the thought so intriguing. I don’t like tarot cards, only because my friend own a deck that seems to hate me. I don’t think spells or prayers work at all, but I constantly chant mantras loud when I’m alone. I don’t believe in prophetic dreams or spirit guardians, but I constantly meet up with my lovely animus in dreams, because hey, that’s science!

Why can’t I just tell people, “Sure, I’m a scientist, but I find this new age thingie SO interesting?”. Easy answer; I’m afraid to open up and admit it. The difficult question is “Why am I so afraid of that?”. I think I know the answer to that question as well, but it is just too frightening to say out loud. Better just discuss it with my animus, then do nothing.

So, lovely people reading this blog, how did you find the courage to acknowledge your beliefs and tell people about it? Because I’m stumped here.

Oh, I’m a buddhist as well. But only online when I’m anonymous.

Signed, The Robin

 

Days of Witchery: 18. Have You Had Any Paranormal Experiences?

When I hear paranormal I think about UFO’s and things like that, and that’s something I’ve never experienced or been interested in. When I was a christian, I heard a lot about healing and miracles, but I never really experienced things like that personally or ever saw it happen.

I remember one time when I was little and my guinea pig was sick. I stood by my window, praying to God to care of him and not let him suffer. The next day he was dead. When mom came in to tell me I kind of already knew and was really calm about. Because I knew God had listened to me.

Today I don’t know if it was truly the christian God who listened, or if it was the All or something else entirely. But it’s a memory I’m fond of and thought to share with you. It’s not something wildly paranormal or “cool”, but it’s something in my life I look back on and can’t really explain.

Recently, in step with me being more open with my spirituality, I’ve become more sensitive to energies around me. I’m reacting a lot to places where I known people have died and suffered. I worked at a tower that served as a prison between the 17th-19th century. The basement there worked as a darkcell where people sat isolated without heat, light and half food ransoms. It was like walking into a wall, I could barely breathe in there. I also react strongly to the Gallows’ Hill I’ve blogged about a couple of posts ago. I went there to pick plants with two friends and stopped about 3 metres away from it. I couldn’t walk any closer, the same feeling like in the tower came over me and I actually started crying this time.

Perhaps not much of a paranormal experience, but it’s something I’ve been through and can’t truly explain.

What have you experienced?

Blessed Be
