Good Morning Daylight Savings Time!

I’m looking forward to the Americano Espresso I’m going to pick up at Scooter’s Coffee Shop on my way to work. It will help with the DST transition. 🙂

A Few Magickal Things

             Yes!  This is MY cup of apple cider.

It’s in the mid-to-upper 40s here this morning; and even though it’s a bit chilly, that didn’t stop me from going outside on the back porch in nothing but my nightgown to get some cold apple cider from the kettle-that-is-way-too-big-for-the-fridge. It was exhilarating! (both the cold and the cider) 

I have discovered this morning that my Samhain Apple Cider is as good cold as it is hot; it’s rather refreshing cold (remember, along with lots of the usual spices, I add peach tea bags to mine). Yum.

                                                                                                           These are mine…they could be yours ~
These are a beautiful set of chakra pendulums. I’ve had them for some time now, priced as a set (I won’t break the set up); and they’re being offered at a price which breaks down to about $10 a piece. I won’t go any lower, and I probably should have gone higher. I’ve now put a time limit on them…if I don’t sell them by January 1st, 2018, I’m taking them down, and they will permanently be mine!
This photo is a hot love spell that was underway for a client. I’ve always said that I don’t do spells for people, but maybe that’s not entirely accurate. I have a Candle Altar Service, traditionally called “Setting the Lights”, and I will dress and burn a spell candle for you for your particular intention. I prepare this on a tray, as you see in the photo, with additional herbs, stones, and sometimes some very interesting items added to it. When all is said and done and it’s burned down, I use the remaining candle wax, along with the herbs from the tray, as well as extra herbs and things, and create a mojo bag from the spell remnants that I mail to you. This has been very successful, and I’ve received enthusiastic emails from very happy clients.
PS ~ the stuff I add to the mojo bag will definitely not include the statue that you see in the photo! This has a place of honor on my entertainment center, and it’s raised more than a few eyebrows from guests of varying ages and spiritual backgrounds. If you can’t see it clearly, it’s a couple caught in the rapture of a sexual pose. It’s proven quite effective in spells to produce not only love but some major physical passion as well (she says with a smile).

The Drama of it All

The following post speaks for itself.  These comments were left on the “Court Case Spells” page at Magickal Connections.  This kind of thing happens to me quite often, and I thought it was time to address it instead of just letting it slide by:

Hello again, MessedUpKitten ~ In responding to this reply, I’ll begin by refreshing the reader’s memory of your original post and my response.

You said:

Fighting so hard to keep our family home when we fell behind on repayments. Its messy due to bank bail outs and two disabled children (meaning I can no longer work). The odds are stacked against us because the banks own the courts, despite the fact that they have committed fraud on our mortgage. We are just looking for a fair result and to be able to keep our home. I’m fighting this on my own and am terrified.

My reply:

Banks don’t own courts. The banking system and the judicial system are two different entities… Since you’re a stranger and I have absolutely no first hand knowledge of you or your particular circumstances, there’s no way for me to know how, or if, the courts have committed fraud on your mortgage, though I seriously doubt it. You say you have two disabled children and you don’t work (you’re unemployed). This implies no income, and no income means that you can’t make your monthly house payments. If you can’t pay for your house, you will lose it. I sincerely empathize with your fear and your state of panic at the prospect of losing your home, especially with children in tow, it must be very difficult and traumatic. Your main problem seems to be income– you need a job. Aside from the house and house payments, you still need a job to support your children and provide for them. Brush up on your skills; sign up with employment agencies; start filling out applications for openings in your community. I’m sure that you’ve already looked into Social Services and any help that they can provide for you and the children; if you haven’t, you need to do this. Also, I’m including Social Security and Medicaid to this list.

As far as magick goes, focus on employment and prosperity (money); uncrossing spells; road openers; positive energy. I wish you the best of luck, and I hope you win your fight!

Your reply:

Well you are right on one thing, you don’t know me. It has been proving that the banks have committed fraud and it is the subject of national and international outcry as the banks have covered it up for years with over 30,000 affected. I do have an income, as well as a part time job and my husband works full time too, so no, income is not my issue. If you would like to look at international news any day, you would see that there are huge problems in Ireland with the banks getting away with whatever they want and the courts and government doing nothing to stop it. I came here for advice, sadly I got condescension instead. Oh and I did get the outcome I needed, thanks to the helpful advice of others. Clearly this is not the right page for me.

My reply:

1) “I do have an income, as well as a part time job…” ~ You are contradicting yourself. In your first post, you said, “Its messy due to bank bail outs and two disabled children (meaning I can no longer work)…I’m fighting this on my own and am terrified.” To me, “I can no longer work”, means you’re not working. I assumed you were without a job. And of course, you never mentioned a working husband bringing in an income, so once again, I went on the assumption that you were alone, a single mother, since you explicitly stated, “I’m fighting this on my own”.

2) “If you would like to look at international news any day, you would see that there are huge problems in Ireland with the banks…” ~ Ummm, no thank you. I have enough going on in my own back yard. Unlike you, I am a single mother and I do work. I have an almost daily 80 mile commute to work, a huge house and yard to keep up, and regular parental duties on the side. Not to mention running The Witch’s Corner online in my spare time and working on a 5th book manuscript. I’m sorry if this sounds cold and callus, but I don’t care what Ireland is doing with it’s banking system. It’s just not on my radar. Once again, I just assumed that you were in the US, which is where I am, and that’s how I addressed your mortgate/banking issue.

3) “I came here for advice, sadly I got condescension instead…” ~ No, you didn’t get condescension, you got advice. You just didn’t like the advice you got.

4) Clearly this is not the right page for me…” ~ I agree. I posted these free spells as a means to helping people, spells that are found in all of my books, which are not free. I did not realize on doing so that so many people would assume I could automatically solve all of their problems.

Rainbows ~ Love ~& Yellow Brick Roads

Today I stained my wooden staircase.  I’ve never stained anything in my life, and I discovered that wood stain is nothing like paint.  (Paint I know, paint I can handle.)  I practiced on a board in the garage a little while, playing around with it, until I felt comfortable enough to start on the double staircase that makes up the foyer in my split-level house.  This is the final product, still wet.

The result of having a staircase wet with wood stain is that we have to use the backdoor.  Following is the sign that I posted on my front door so that it would be made clear:

And yes, there really is a Yellow Brick Road:

I have another special gift box up and ready to go, and when it’s gone, it’s gone.  This one is geared to Love & Romance, with the sweet romantic energy of rose quartz, to the passion of the red rose, and the mystery of the Queen of Cups in a ravishing scented magickal oil.  Anoint the red love candle with this Queen’s oil and fan the flame of passion.

Today has been a productive day magickally.  I’ve created sweet “Rainbow Mini-Poppets” that are small enough to carry in your purse or your coat pocket, small enough to tuck discreetly in an office drawer, or your glove compartment…

Rainbow Mini-Poppets

These colorful little dollies are charged with soothing peaceful energy to bring calm and emotional comfort.  They are aligned with the colors of the rainbow (and the chakras) to insure a positive flow of energy emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
Because of their small size, you can easily tuck them in your purse, coat pocket, or glove compartment. Keep them with you to stay close to their energy.
