Nā Pōhaku Laʻāu | Copper

Despite its red color, #copper is identified with the element of Water.  Its astral counterpart is the planet #Venus … hence, the attribution of this metal to the goddesses associated with the planet Venus, including Ishtar and Astarte.  Today’s magic includes knowledge about the ability of copper to conduct electricity.  For this reason, it is often used to produce wands used in rituals focused on energy management.  This translates into healing magic — especially in the course of these practices, which aims to balance the polarity of the body and remove any disturbances in the flow of energy that could lead to diseases.  It is believed that carrying a piece of copper with you contributes to the overall improvement of your health and prevents diseases.  Another known property of copper is its ability to relieve the symptoms of rheumatic disease and arthritis.

Pohaku La’au | “Take me! I am of great power”, The Illusive Hag Stone

E. Massey

hagstone_hc3bchnergott

In my twenty plus years of being a Witch I have never found a hag stone. However, my roommate who is also a practicing Witch has found more than she can count. What makes these stones show up more for one person and not another? To find out I started looking more into what they are and their history.

A Hag Stone is a stone with a natural hole through it and are believed to be magickal. These stones are believed to ward against spirits, bad luck, “Witchcraft”, sickness, and nightmares. They are also known to be windows or doorways to see “otherworlds”, such as the fairy realm. These magickal stones have as many names as they do powers and seem to have originated by their folk-lore and use in a particular region. Sometimes referred to as hex stones, serpent’s eggs, snake’s eggs, and Druids’ glass. However, the more common…

My Thoughts About Life

MMJ-6101_Black_Onyx_Bracelets__13695.1502204091.jpgTime passes like pages in a well-loved book, turned, devoured, experienced and cherished.

As the time in my life ebbs by, I find myself changing and seeking new ways to care for myself. I am not afraid of time passing, I accept it as it is, but am fully aware that it is happening. My son just got accepted into graduate school. My daughter will be building a house this spring/summer. My children are young adults, edging into their own lives, so of course time is one of those things I can no longer easily take for granted, as I once did in my youth. So although I am aware of the passing of time, I am also aware of the present moments that time still has to give me each and every passing minute, hour, day, month and year. Out of that awareness comes a decision to focus on…

Pohaku La’au | Crystals for Beginners

Shelby Morgan

In a crystal we have clear evidence of the existence of a formative life principle, and though we cannot understand the life of a crystal, it is nonetheless a living being.” -Nikola Tesla

img_0753 My personal collection of stones! I have many smaller palm stones as well, but I typically keep them scattered and in different places depending on how I’m feeling.

So you’re giving into the hype and you want to know what this whole crystal thing is all about. I don’t blame you! They make for beautiful decor and they’re something tangible that you can refer to for specific feelings, ailments, or imbalances. Don’t let people make you think that crystals are for witches or people who worship satan…. because those things have absolutely nothing to do with crystals in the slightest. People of all religions, beliefs, and ages can use crystals in their every day lives.

Mojave Turquoise, Mojave Stone…..what is it?

Native American Jewelry Tips

What is Mojave Turquoise or Mojave Stone? I could not find a single mention of it in any of my turquoise reference books. On the internet there are some references to it spelled mojave and mohave but I never found any detailed information. When attending a gem show not too long ago, I saw a stack of old magazines with a “FREE” sign by them, so I picked up a few and found this article inside one of them.

From the December 1979 issue of Lapidary Journal

Lapidary Journal December 1979

Mojave turquoise was crafted through a process that uses a hydraulic press to organize numerous Kingman turquoise pieces into one conglomerate by introducing a bronze metal matrix throughout the base network of turquoise. Once the turquoise is pressed or assembled, it is stabilized to harden the stone. It ranks 5 to 6 on the Mohs hardness scale.

How You Can Use Crystals To Release Fear And Old Patterns

Most people have no idea that their personal progress is greatly limited by the influence of the past on their lives. Fear of abandonment, fear of commitment, fear of humiliation, fear of letting go—these are the big fears that threaten to kill our personal progress.

Pohāku Lāʻau – Magickal, Mysterious, Whitby Jet

Speaking of Witch Wands & Magickal Things

By Isabella @TheWandCarver
Jet gives me such a thrill, particularly the Whitby variety. Some say it “ain’t Jet if it ain’t from Whitby!” Ah, yes…I almost 100% agree, still, I have had some very good magick come from Jet which hailed from other parts and all. Where does Jet come from, if not from Whitby? Deposits of Jet were discovered in other countries beyond Britain, including Spain, Germany, China, Turkey, and Siberia. In the United States, Jet has been found in Virginia, New Mexico, Utah, and Alaska. However, none of these locations produced Jet that had the same working qualities and beauty as the Jet found near Whitby.

Pohāku Lāʻau – Shiva Lingam, A Mystical Crystal of Power

Speaking of Witch Wands & Magickal Things

By Isabella @TheWandCarver

Shiva Lingam come from only one place, the Narmada River in Western India, one of India’s most holy sites. The word ‘Lingam‘ comes from the Sanskrit word for symbol, as these stones are a symbol of Lord Shiva. The Shiva Lingam are an integral part of their worship practises, and have been for hundreds of years. Their colours vary, but they are all a tan colour with various brown, red or grey stripes, spots or patches on the stones.

Shiva Lingamphoto by i.macy

The villagers around the Narmada River gather the stones from the river and hand polish them so that they are a smooth, rounded shape. They are deliberately made into the well-known phallic shape, as this shape has a specific meaning because it is symbolic of the phallus of the Hindu God Shiva, and of his union with his consort Kali

Pohāku Lāʻau – Basic ways to charge crystals

Wolf Of Antimony Occultism

There are many different ways that you can go about charging your crystals in order to get them working at their most efficient levels. In this post I will be going over a couple of the more basic methods for charging crystals, so that you will be able to charge your crystals and work with them more effectively.

Sunlight:

By putting your crystals in the sunlight you will be able to charge them using the sun’s rays. All you need in order to charge crystals in this way is to place your crystals in the sunlight outside, or in a windowsill, so that the sun’s rays will be able to lay upon them, and charge them with its energy. Certain crystals should not be charged in this way due to the fact that they will cause fading of the crystals color, so make sure to check what types of crystals…
