Pohaku La’au: 12 Things You Always Wanted To Know About Crystals

Any way you slice it, crystals are having a moment. So when we asked the BuzzFeed Community what they wanted to know about these seemingly mystical rocks, they answered with questions that ranged from “How the heck do they work?” to “How can crystals help me from being stressed out?” Clearly we needed someone with some kind of authority on the topic, and that’s where Heather Askinosie, crystal expert, co-founder of Energy Muse, and co-author of Crystal Muse: Everyday Rituals to Tune into the Real You comes in. She took the time to go through the questions you sent in and was kind enough to share her ~sage~ advice for you below.  […]

Tourmaline or The Wisdom Stone

Anima Mundi Crystals

Tourmaline or The Wisdom Stone is the most versatile of minerals for its uses in therapy are as  multiple as the colours it displays. Classified in function of its mineral elements we have seven distinct categories worth mentioning even thou the classification is for the one colour tourmaline, as follows: Dravite(brown, yellow, green, gray), Elbaite( all colours including colourless), Indicolite(Blue ), Rubelite( Red, Pink), Verdelite( Green), Schorl(Black) and Uvite(clear brown to dark brown).

rubelite Rubelite Tourmaline

Spiritualy, from this point of view the multicoloured Elbaite helps to concentrate the spirit, the soul, the logic and the body in a harmonic unity. Beginning from this “totality” wisdom and creativity will develop. The Indicolite powers the will for spiritual liberty. The Dravite stimulates social sense, the disposition to help and social compromise. The Verdelite provides vital happiness and incites us to be grateful for the miracles of life. The Rubelite makes us…

3 Herbs For Spellwork

Minimal Witch

c6116ed3c06e7308fca8d0f6edbc6189

Herbs are one of the most crucial elements within spell work in my opinion. They possess a variety of useful properties and emit natural energies that are beneficial in whatever you’re trying to achieve.
As a minimalist, I try to keep things as simple as possible and not be overwhelmed by lots of different things. While this can be restrictive, I believe the following herbs can be used in all types of white magick to generate the desired effects.

Sage

1dca4068e7ecfe1473e91457f8b87402

Sage is probably the most basic yet important herb in any magickal artillery. Whilst outside of magick it has wonderful healing properties to aid coughs, colds and flu it also aids memory recall, detoxes the liver and acts as an antihistamine to name a few benefits.

Within magick its most common use is creating a smudge stick. This involves binding the herb into a bundle and burning the tip to…

RED THREAD

hocuspocus13

TOOL OF THE WITCHES

Our purpose of using Red Thread is to connect us with something

Anything

Such as…

Prosperity
Success
Love
Health
Luck etc

We all have different desires!

Use yours willingly

First up get yourself a spool of very simple Red Thread

Which can be found just about anywhere

It’s a Magickal Tool no Witch should be without

After you have secured yourself a spool of Red Thread

Cut a length of it that measures from the tip of your nose to the very powerful right index fingertip

Your right arm up and forward with the right index fingertip out as though you are pointing at something

Do this any way that is comfortable to you to get that accomplished

You can wrap and knot a bit of the Red Thread around the tip of the right index finger then pull the spool up to the tip of…

CALL ME WITCH. NOT WICCAN

The Witch & Walnut

call me witch, not wiccanLet me start by stating I have no qualms with any faith and this is not a hail storm on Wicca or Wiccans. I truly believe it’s your prerogative to believe in and practice your faith whatever it may be. But please don’t project your faith onto me and box me into your world because you believe we are from the same “tribe”. Or “kinda the same thing” Let me make one thing very clear, we are not the same thing and I don’t have a “tribe” and I like it that way.

Moving on.. I’ve recently had a “white witch” her words not mine tell me that I promote and practice black evil magic and that I need to censor my content. Um… no, you need to put your Wicca book down learn that witchcraft is not Wicca and we don’t play by your rules. Do not confuse your…

Void Moon then a very busy day on the 25th

Eyes of Heaven

We’re a week past the last eclipse. Please attend to your energetic space by doing a thorough cleansing, re-setting boundaries. Gently and kindly escort any non-human energy visitors back to their home domain. Sweep up any leftover energy, asking it to be taken to wherever in creation it is food. Be sure to close all entry/exit ways when they are gone. Peace to all.

Witchy Garden Plans

The Witch & Walnut

aaaa This is a view from a row of kitchen windows. These will be trimmed and evened out. I let them grow wild since the storm. River rock will go back underneath it. 

Finally there is a slight warm up in the air. Its faint, but its there. I managed to get outside the other day and start cleaning up some winter mulch from the front garden. It was only 0 Celsius (32 Fahrenheit) with no wind and mostly sunny.  There were still some patches of ice here and there but I got all the tall grasses cut down as well and pulled out yet another small cedar shrub that has died.

A few years ago we had a ice storm and it left us without power for 5 days in late December. That storm did a lot of damage to our home along with our garden, although we got away…

Feed the Soul of your Home

The Witch & Walnut

FEEDING THE SOUL OF YOUR HOMEFeeding the soul (duša) of your home is a daily practice for us. Duša means the spirit or soul. As long as I could remember I was always taught that we must honor and show respect for the soul of our homes.

What exactly does that mean?I will do my best to describe it, a bit tricky to articulate. Your home has an energy in it, before you were even there, the empty land that was there before the home was built. Then came all the people, memories and varied energies, that are part of your home and that land… this is everlasting.. eternal. It will always be there regardless of whether or not the home is even still standing, there is a force and a slight pull of sorts that is always part of you and you are part of it. This can even be felt when visiting…

Clothes as magickal tools in witchcraft

Wolf Of Antimony Occultism

Clothing can be used as a magickal tool in witchcraft, whether it be something traditional, ritualistic, metaphysical or just comfortable. Clothing can be a very powerful part of your working, if you choose to integrated into your practice. This would allow you to have specific garbs for your magickal working, allowing those clothes to interact, and connect with your working. Having specific magickal clothing will allow you to enter the mindset of performing magick, which will allow you to enter an altered state of consciousness, and will provide you with a liminal space to work within. There are many things you can do to make sure that you have the best clothes for the job.

You could go through the process of blessing, or enchanting clothes with specific properties that you would want to bring into your working. This could be things such as protection, luck, psychic awareness, spiritual energy…

Spell for Breaking a Binding Spell

Witches Of The Craft®

Spell for Breaking a Binding Spell

Some binding spells can cause physical manifestations. You feel as if invisible strands of hair or thin strings are wrapped around you. You can’t see them but you can feel them and nothing you do can make that sensation stop. Here is a way to dispel a binding. 


Cut a bit of your own hair and set it in a small bowl. Light 3 candles, 1 red, 1 white and 1 green. In a fire safe bowl or incense brazier, light a piece of charcoal and add some myrrh, patchouli and sandalwood incense (powdered kind not cone or stick). Take a sterile needle or pin and prick your right index finger.


Squeeze three drops of blood into the smoldering incense. As you drop the hair onto the lit incense repeat these words: 


With blood, candle and scent times three 
No longer shall this binding be 
Free to live and free to…

Card of the Day – The World – Friday, February 23, 2018

Tarot by Cecelia

img_3749Life is full of cycles…daily, weekly, monthly, seasonal, even minute by minute. Therefore, even in the most mundane of circumstances, things are perpetually ending and beginning. It is doubtful right now that events around you are the least bit mundane, given the fact that we are still in eclipse season for another week.

As we proceed through the cylces of life, doors close, and doors open, giving birth to a new era. I always equate this card to crossing a Finish Line and encountering a Starting Line. With each phase of your journey that you have experienced has come some form of wisdom. As you enter through that doorway to see what comes next, be sure to take that acquired wisdom with you to guide you on your way.

See you here tomorrow!

Greetings and Happy Thursday. “Do Not Disturb the Water That is Tranquil.”
