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)!

Gemstones of Today: Amethyst and Citrine

So, I’m that kind of person that more often than not carries around different gemstones and crystals to help me in my life. I wanted to take a break from my studies and so I decided to write about the crystals I’m fingering on today!

Amethyst

Known as a guard for drunkeness, although that is not something I use it for, since I’m sober. It’s overall a big help in overcoming addiction of all kinds and easing all kinds of pain.  The amethyst’s also thought to be able to stabilize different mental disorders.

Worn to make the wearer gentle and amiable.  It’s a stone for protection, since it repels more than it attracts. It’s also used to relieve stress, something I personally use it for.

Site about the amethyst

Citrine

Citrine is used to heighten the creativity and mental clarity of a person. It’s also supposed to help people with self-destructive tendencies. It motivates to take action and brings optimism and cheeriness. I personally use citrine when I need to concentrate on my studies.

Hope you thought this helpful,

Blessed Be!

Youtube Video: So You’ve Found Wicca, Now What?

So I found this Youtube channel, Witchontherocks, and this video really spoke to me, I love this girl’s view on wicca and witchcraft. She talks about wicca and being really radical and straightforward about it.

Take a look and tell me what you think!

A Mention: Moon and Shadow Blog

Yesterday I was blogged about! Yay! It’s the first time it’s ever happened to me in my bloglife and I feel kind of honored that my blog is interesting enough to be written enough. I was featured as the Wednesday Witch on Moon and Shadow, a blog I’ve favorited and started commenting on recently.

This is a wonderful blog with many posts going back to 2007, I’m currently on 2009 in my reading. She writes facts, she debates and she invites the reader to engage in discussion about her writings and ponderings.

My advice is to make some tea, clear some hours in the afternoon and just sit and enjoy this blog. It’s become one of my favorites in just a few short days.

Cheers!

Tip: Clash of the Gods – Tolkien’s Monsters

A very interesting Documentary about Tolkien and his mythology!
Check it out, it’s very interesting. They take myths and the creatures in LotR and compare to old, already existing tales like Beowulf and Völsungasaga.  So if you like Tolkien and mythology and sagas, this is something you need to check out.

Wicca Forum

Så, jag har nu blivit medlem på två olika Wicca Communities, det ena är svenskt och heter Svenska Wicca, det andra är på engelska och heter Wiccan Wisdom.  Tror det är där jag kommer hänga mest, då det är större, mer forum och mer medlemmar, så man kan få mer perspektiv och respons.

Svenska Wicca är roligt då det är just svenskt och man får en mer nära kontakt, men det är litet och det har sett sina glansdagar tror jag, även om det fortfarande finns aktivitet. (Inget illa ment!) Wiccan Wisdom är ju förstås på engelska och större, så jag tror att åtminstone jag kommer får mer svar där.
