All questions are posted as received, no editing (except to delete identities), as all questions are posted anonymously.  You can contact me through the submission form in the side-bar on the home page at my website The Witch’s Corner.  (Hopefully I haven’t repeated any questions I’ve already answered in a previous blog post, but if I did, I fall back on my Best-Excuse-Ever…I’m a post-menopausal woman– my memory is toast.  This is my story, and I’m stickin’ to it.)

1)  i need your powerful books and crystals,,so help me out.i waiting for your reply.thanks

I’m more than happy to pass on a link to my books: click  Here

As far as crystals are concerned, I’m not sure what you’re talking about.  All that I recall having up, as far as crystals go,  are some crystal pendulums; though I have a big website, and I’ve been busy writing and with other projects, so I haven’t updated my online shops for quite a while.  This will be a future When-I-Get-More-Money and When-I-Have-More-Time project.  click  Here

2)  So I recently Bought a Ring, and I want to Channel Energy into it that will give me a Boost in Confidence and Courage. Thus making me able to be more sociable in crowds. I was wondering If you had any Advice on the matter, sites I could Look at, or tell me how and what I need to complete this ritual. thanks in advance if you decide to reply. ~D 

Very cool!  You’ll find an explanation for enchanting jewelry at the top of  This Page.  And this little tidbit of info (which I’m copy-pasting here) can be found at the bottom of said page.

3)  Hi! I would like to order a spell from you. Just in case asking is it possible. I would like to get a healing spell. Im nicely going to doctors also but im very hopfull with casting spell, because i think i need extra help. Is it possible to order spell for healing or banishing illness? as i live in Estonia in Europa sometimes its not possible to get all things (herbs or oils) I would be very happy and lucky if you can help me :) With best wishes

I’m so glad to hear that you’re continuing with solid mundane Medical Care.  This is so important, and I can’t emphasize it enough, whether you’re going  to incorporate magickal spells or any other form of holistic healing into your regimen– don’t stop seeing your medical doctor, and don’t stop taking prescribed medications.

Actually, I don’t sell spells.  However, I do offer a service in which I help people put spells together for specific intentions (Spell Consultations), and you’ll find more information on the topic at this link: click  Here

You’ll also find a whole slew of Free Spells at this blog.  Here’s a link to Health & Healing Spells, click  Here

My Wedding Ring: Labradorite

I started off my marriage to Joe with a traditional wedding band– a channel ring with diamonds, purchased at a fancy-schmancy jewelry store in Omaha.  I don’t have it now (long story, this will be another blog post for another time).  I needed a replacement.  Joe is very “traditional” about some things (not so much about others), and he had it in his head that I would want/should have a traditional bridal set, complete with the diamonds that he loves so much.  The issues for me were 1) that I’m not a conventional person; 2) diamonds are not my favorite stone, they’re actually way down on my list; 3) I cannot abide by the outrageous ridiculously high prices the fancy-schmancy jewelry stores charge.

I didn’t want to make a fast purchase just to have a ring.  I wanted to find a ring that resonated with me, with Joe, and with our relationship.  I wanted to find that ring, the one you see and you think:  “That ring is My Ring!”

One day last week, we had to make a trip into Omaha on business, and of course we stopped at our favorite new-age shop:  Next Millennium.  (We were married in this shop, by the way, right at the front counter, by the owner, Charlie.) …So this story and it’s ending are so extremely well-suited.

This was an unusual day, for one thing, because we didn’t have to rush to be Somewhere Else, we were on our own time and our own schedule.  This meant Time to Browse.  I wish you could smell scents on the internet, the shop always smells beautiful and exotic with incense going; and the background music is always enchanting and relaxing.  I have spent many happy hours with my nose pressed to the glass of the jewelry display cases, and I intended to add even more hours to this happy occupation.

A tray of rings caught my eye.

It was graciously removed from the display case and set before me on the counter. I looked at a couple rings that I had initially noticed first, and then I saw The Ring.  It was one of those 1 second pauses that actually feel like several minutes.  I slipped it on my finger, and I knew without a doubt– this was My Ring.

I chose this ring by instinct, on a whim, without knowing all of the properties, energies, and correspondences that go along with Labradorite. (Contrary to popular belief, I’m not a walking encyclopedia of new-age knowledge. I have to Look-Stuff-Up, just like everybody else.)  And this is exactly what I did when I got home.  I was amazed, absolutely amazed, without giving away every nuance of our private lives.  The results of my search only served to strengthen my belief in the magick of stones and crystals and their ability to draw you to them when you need their energy and their magick, as well as when you are aligned with their energy and their magick.

Labradorite:

1)  Numerologically, Labradorite is connected to the numbers 6 & 7

This blew me away.  Joe & I were married on June 7th, 2013…6-7-13  (6+7=13)

Number 6:  Planet– Venus; Element– Water; Letters– f, o, x; Energies– emotions, magnetism, gods/goddesses, cats

Negative:  The Intellectual

This is a person who draws only on information from the limited resources of rational, analytic thinking without incorporating either the emotional or spiritual aspects of life.  Intellectuals seldom have a holistic assessment of a situation.  Their thinking tends to be dry, lifeless, and without energy.  They are limited in their scope because they trust only conventional ideas.  The are often judgmental and narrow in their outlook.

Negative:  The Egotist

Egotists are people who think their efforts alone carry them through life.  They believe that they are separate from a greater whole of existence and that their striving and effort controls the outcome of their life.

3) Astrological Connections:  Leo, Scorpio, Sagittarius

Again, I find the association amazing– Joe is Scorpio (which explains a lot, but that’s another blog post).

Leo…is self-expression seeking confidence, ease, and honor in the social world.  The house where your Leo rules is where you will be challenged to “shine”; to apply the positive, creative qualities of your sun sign, and find a sense of inner peace.

Scorpio…is intense emotional power probing and penetrating into the unconscious; seeking the power of transformation at work in ordinary reality; seeking to accept all that is frightening or overwhelming.  The house where your Scorpio rules is where you will be challenged to completely transform your life. You seek control in this part of your life and can be manipulative and secretive.

Sagittarius…is an expansion quest to discover truth and the interconnectedness of all things.  The house where your Sagittarius rules is where you will be challenged to expand your experiences. You are philosophical about the affairs of this house, and generous with its gifts.

4) Physical Healing/Emotional & Spiritual Properties

General Healing Qualities: Good for mental sharpness, intellect, right/left brain activity, inspiration, intuition, and originality.  Lets you see many possibilities at once, aids scientific analysis

Also…Good for digestion and the eyes; helps remove warts; beneficial during radionics treatment; aligns physical and etheric bodies; PMS; vitality; brain; stress reliever; regulates metabolism; colds; gout; rheumatism; hormones; blood pressure

Emotional/Spiritual Qualities:  Allows magick to happen; stabilizes the aura and enhances the flow of energy between the aura and the chakras; helps with insecurity, anxiety, and stress

5) Other Qualities, Attributes, and Information about Labradorite

“…Labradorite is thought by some to symbolize the moon and the sun and has, in fact, been found to be a constituent of moon rock.  Feldspar, and therefore Labradorite, assists one to progress from old ways, encouraging unconventional and exciting new methods to attain one’s goals.  Labradorite can also assist one to handle changes, promoting strength and perseverance.  It has been known as the Matriarch of the Subconscious Mind, facilitating the transformation of intuition into intellectual thought.  It is said to be helpful in the treatment of disorders of the brain, to stimulate mental acuity, and to reduce anxiety and stress.  It can assist in digestion, regulation and metabolism and has been used to clarify the eyes.  Labradorite is Saturday’s gemstone.”

“…A stone of transformation, Labradorite prepares body and soul for the ascension process.  This highly mystical and protective stone raises consciousness and deflects unwanted energies from the aura, preventing energy leakage.  Holding esoteric knowledge, it takes you into another world or into other lives.  This crystal helps banish fears and insecurities and the psychic debris from previous disappointments, strengthening trust in the universe.  Labradorite removes other people’s projections, including thought forms hooked into the aura.  With Labradorite, analysis and rationality are balanced with inner sight.  Labradorite is a useful companion through change, imparting strength and perseverance.”

Regarding yellow Labradorite, which my ring contains: “…Yellow Labradorite accesses the highest levels of consciousness, assisting visualization, trance, clairvoyance, and channeling.  It expands the mental body, attuning it to higher wisdom.  This stone is useful for detaching from undue influence or manipulation by others, and especially for treating codependency or an enabler who is unable to let the person learn their own lessons in life or who unconsciously wants to prolong dependency.”

It is a protective talisman worn by travelers, particularly to those traveling on or over water. Silver is connected to the energy of the Moon and the Goddess (feminine divinity), and can be worn to aide in a Wiccan ritual known as “€œDrawing Down the Moon”€.

Metal Magick

I’ve got new bracelet/ring sets in at Enchanted Jewelry, beautifully handcrafted from alpaca silver, brass, and copper.  There are a variety of styles, but only five sets available at this time.  The rings average a size 8.

Copper

Energy: receptive (feminine)

Planet: Venus

Element: Water

Powers: direction energy; healing; luck; love; protection; money

During ancient times in Mesopotamia, copper was attributed to the Queen of Heaven, as well as to goddesses associated with the planet Venus (Aphrodite, Astarte, Ishtar). Copper is a conductor of electricity and is often used in magickal wands, with clear quartz crystals, to direct energy. Copper is worn by magickal practitioners, as well, for the purpose of directing energy during spell crafting and rituals. Copper has the ability to balance receptive (feminine) and projective (masculine) energies in the human body, thus facilitating healing. Copper is worn to aid in the relief of rheumatism and arthritis, but is worn for general healing and to divert illnesses of all kinds. It’s considered a lucky metal and is often worn in conjunction with gemstones geared to bring good fortune. Copper can be worn to attract a lover and is often paired with an emerald for this purpose.

Brass

Energy: projective (masculine)

Planet: Sun

Element: Fire

Powers: healing, money, protection

Brass can be used as a magickal substitution for gold, and is often used in money spells and rituals. Brass can be worn or used with stones to attract money and prosperity, such as aventurine and pyrite. It’s also used in ritual healing and can be worn to ease stomach cramps and nose bleeds. Brass is a protective metal, and can be worn to guard you against physical, emotional, or psychic attack. It can also be used for defensive magick, to send negative energy back to its source, and it can be charged and worn for this purpose.

Silver

Energy: receptive (feminine)

Planet: Moon

Element: Water

Powers: love, psychism, dreams, protection, travel (physical & astral), money

When worn, silver stimulates psychic awareness and personal abilities and is often worn during divination. You can wear silver to bed to enhance prophetic dreams and to aide in astral travel. It’s a protective talisman worn by travelers, particularly to those traveling on or over water. Silver is connected to the energy of the Moon and the Goddess (feminine divinity), and can be worn to aide in a Wiccan ritual known as “Drawing Down the Moon”.

Prehnite: My Stone of Choice

I was browsing through “The Crystal Healer: crystal prescriptions that will change your life forever” looking for a stone that would compliment the energies I’m dealing with in my life at the moment, a stone that would enhance any natural gifts and give me a leg up on any health issues, a stone that would enhance any chances for opportunities coming my way, and a stone that I would feel a natural connection with.  After browsing this book, my choice was “Prehnite”.

Prehnite’s energies include: the incredible energy of unconditional love; the enhancement of inner knowledge (intuition); it helps you with spiritual growth and the direction of your destiny; and helps you to recognize the truth.  Physically, prehnite assists in finding the root cause of an illness.  Healers use prehnite for issues of the kidneys and bladder, the thymus gland, shoulders, chest and lungs.

I managed to find a necklace (made with prehnite, jade, and hematite), a prehnite bracelet, and a prehnite ring on Ebay, each one from a different source, all three of them lovely and magickal.  The necklace carries additional energies because it is crafted with additional stones:

Jade:  just as prehnite enhances issues of the heart and unconditional love, so jade is another stone of the heart, traditionally used in the orient as an engagement stone; it’s a stone that enhances fidelity.  Physically, jade is used for healing lung and heart problems; the immune system; and nervous issues.

Hematite:  this stone is very grounding, strongly connected with the element of Earth; it enhances mental organization and rationality; calms nervous or flighty tendencies; enhances original thinking and logical thought processes; banishes negative energy and helps balance the body, mind, and spirit.  Physically, hematite is used to reduce fevers or treat heat exhaustion; to cure blood disorders, nervous issues, and insomnia; it helps to align the spine and minimize spinal issues.

May Updates: Heading into Summer

I’m happy to be back to business as usual, more or less, and I’ve resumed tarot readings, including personal private local readings. If you live in or near the Fremont, Nebraska, area, you can receive a personal reading with me by going to this page (click Here) and purchasing a private reading through the Paypal widget. After you’ve done that, call me to set up a date that will be convenient for both of us. You’ll find my number at this link.

*Note:  readings must be paid for in advance, before I’ll set up an appointment. I’ve had too many people who have either forgotten a scheduled reading, or who have been ‘no-shows’. This wastes both my time and my gas.

I finally got the new “Steampunk Bleu” jewelry collection up at my website, click  Here.  This collection includes original designs from “Creations by Isabella”.  She’s worked for months designing necklaces, earrings, and bracelets, all with the popular ‘steampunk’ theme; and this jewelry was literally selling as I’m putting it up– two pieces have already sold, so I suggest you take a look soon if you’re interested.

 

I’ve had so many requests for so long for magnetic healing bracelets, and I finally found a decent vendor for these items.  There are two different styles of hematite magnetic enchanted bracelets.  There are a variety of colors (accent beads) and a variety of enchantments; however, there are a limited number of bracelets. When you purchase one of these bracelets, be sure to let me know which color of accent bead you want, and you also get to choose what kind of enchantment you desire from the enchantments offered. ( If you have a special magickal need, let me know and I’ll see what I can do for you to personalize the enchantment.) …Click  Here.

 

I’m pleased to say that my book, “The Gray Witch’s Grimoire”, is doing well and seems to be hitting a soft spot with a lot of gray witches and solitary witches out there.  Thank you to everyone who’s sent me personal messages.  I may not have the time to answer every email coming in, but I read them all!  If you like this book, please be sure to click the ‘Like’ button at Amazon.  If you’ve read this book and you have something to say about it, you can submit a review at the Amazon page included in the link above.  I appreciate all of the input I’ve received, it’s the most rewarding part of writing, to know that you’ve made a ‘magickal’ connection with so many people on so many levels.

The following is an excerpt from the introduction to “Spells” in “A Gray Witch’s Grimoire”:

“…The spells listed here are all taken directly from my own Book of Shadows. I’ve carefully read through and decided upon a number of spells for a variety of intentions. I’ve chosen spells which have the spirit of the gray witch about them and that will fit with the energy of this book. Some of these spells are inspired by age-old traditions and others were birthed from my own imagination, desires, and intentions.

For those of you who don’t have the heart of the gray witch, some of these spells might make you cringe; but you’ll read transfixed, nevertheless, for the pull of the wild witch is strong within us all. Some of you have just tamed her, and others have allowed her to fly free.”
