My Crystals For The Day

 

 

 

 

 

I wore these today at work for strength, focus, will, protection, and banishment against alcohol. I figured since amethyst are supposed to help against addiction and alcohol consumption, maybe it can protect against alcohol consumers as well. And hey, it actually worked! I work at a large food chain and working the nightshift a saturday can be fun but also uncomfortable. I wore these crystals in my bra (since I didn’t have any pockets) and they helped me through my shift and I actually left work happy (as happy you can be at 4 am)!

Midnight (Later Actually) Mabon

 

Even though I had a busy day, I swore I’d at least celebrate a small Mabon even if I had to do it very late. I came home from work around 4 am, and what did I do? I set up my altar and celebrated and small Mabon. Not elaborate at all. Just thanking The Mother Goddess and Harvest God and asking for their blessing and protection, while offering what I had at home.

Still, I’m pleased and even though I had a hurried Mabon it was still very spiritual and I feel at peace.

How did you celebrate Mabon?

Pagan Baking

So I’m thinking about baking something tomorrow, and why not bake something “witchy” while I’m at it? I’d like some ideas since I rarely bake. What should I do for my bake date tomorrow?

Så jag funderar på att baka imorgon, och tänkte baka något “witchy” medan jag ändå håller på. Någon som har någon idé att dela med sig?

Blessed Be

Currently Reading: Witchcraft – Raven Grimassi

I’ve given myself homework. And not school homework, but pagan homework. Every night before I turn off the lights to sleep, I read a paragraph or two from one of my “witchy” books. True, I’ve only done this about 3 nights, but I feel like I want to do this, not like I’m forcing myself to do it, which is really good. You have to push yourself if you want to learn something, but it has to be enjoyable at the same time! I’ve read about Samhain and the Winter Solstice and tonight I’ll read about Imbolc! I’m thinking about doing summaries about what I’ve read but I don’t really have the time right now unfortunately.

 

Here anyway, is my future reading schedule while reading Raven Grimassi’s Witchcraft- A Mystery Tradition (There are 10 chapters and I will NOT be reading them in order)

A Promise Upon The Blue Moon

So I did some meditation tonight as well as the night before yesterday. During both of those meditations it really hit me that I need to get in touch more with my spiritual side. I haven’t done anything like that in a while and it hit me just now how much calmer and grounded I am after meditating and using sage to clear the room. To most people I know this will sound like rubbish but we all have our ways of calming down and getting in touch with ourselves after a stressful week at work or in school. This is my way and I really feel like I need to get in touch with my spirituality more. Again. There’s something with autumns that makes me connect with my pagan self.

So this is my promise under the blue moon. I will get to know myself and most importantly my faith as well as try to stay grounded and not spiral down into the common fall depression or whatever it’s called in english.

Have you made any promises under the blue moon?

Adrenaline on the Job – Catching Thieves

I got such an adrenaline rush on the job today. I work at McDonalds and tonight I had the night shift. While we were cleaning after closing time and a guy was yelling about wanting a cinnamon bun. There were some left but we wouldn’t sell or give it to him since we were closed. After a while he stopped and later his friend tried to steal one and run away. I saw it as it happened and immediately yelled and ran after and tackled him. I took him by the collar and forced him backwards and down while my workmate took the cinnamon bun from the guy who was dying from laughter. I was pissed at the time, now though it’s just hilarious.

I stopped a cinnamon bun-thief tonight, aren’t I awesome?

Jag fick en sådan adrenalinkick på jobbet idag. Jag arbetar på McDonalds och ikväll hade jag nattskift. Medan vi städade efter stängningstid var det en kille skrek om att vilja ha en kanelbulle. Det fanns några kvar men vi ville inte sälja eller ge den till honom eftersom vi var stängda. Efter ett tag slutade han och senare försökte hans vän stjäla en och springa iväg. Jag såg det som det hände och omedelbart skrek och sprang efter och tog tag i honom. Jag tog honom i kragen och tvingade honom bakåt och nedåt medan min arbetskamrat tog kanelbullen från killen som var nästa dog av skratt. Jag var förbannad då, nu om det är bara otroligt roligt

Jag stoppade en kanelbulle-tjuv ikväll, är jag inte fantastisk?
