Poppets: Love ’em or Leave ’em; Cure ’em or Curse ’em

 When you purchase poppets from my website, they are charged and ready to go– all that’s left is for you to add a ‘personal’ touch with a photo, a lock of hair, a signature, etc.  But did you know that there is a ritual to ‘breathe them to life’ ?  Well there is, and I’m passing one on to you which I wrote myself.  It would be preferable to work this magic within a cast circle.  If you aren’t a practiced occultist, know that this ritual is not a requirement– but I won’t tell you that it doesn’t make a difference, because it sure can.

ImageAssemble those items that correspond to the four elements– a bowl of water, a lit candle, an incense of your choice, and a bowl of salt.

1.  Cast your circle & call the quarters.

2.  Have your altar prepared, the color of your altar cloth, the herbs and stones present all corresponding to your intentions.

3.  Upon this altar place the items belonging to the elements.

4.  Take a few moments to ground yourself, to gather your energy, to fill your mind and this magical space with your intentions for this poppet.

5.  Lay the doll upon the altar.

For the element of Earth:

Take a handful of salt and sprinkle it across the figure, saying:

“I infuse you with Earth, that you feel physical touch.”

For the element of Air:

Take the doll in your hands and hold it in the smoke of the incense, turning it, moving it, that it is consumed with the smoke, saying:

 “I infuse you with Air, that you think.”

For the element of Fire:

Lay the doll upon the altar once more and hold the burning candle above it, saying:

 “I infuse you with Fire, that your passion be unquenchable and you feel the heat of my fury (or love, hate, etc.)”

For the element of Water:

Dip your right hand into the bowl of water and sprinkle the water upon the poppet as it lay on your altar, saying:

 “I infuse you with Water, that your emotions be overwhelming.”

6.  Leave the poppet lay on the altar.  Take a deep breath and slowly lean over it, until you hover above it’s mouth, your own lips almost touching it.  Exhale now, allow your breath to escape from your body in one long warm draught of air.  And this breath shall enter the poppet and give it life.

7.  Open your circle, dismiss the quarters.  Do with the poppet what you must, according to your intentions.

April– Health & Healing, Crystal Therapy, Spells & More

The April newsletter is up and out

at The Witch’s Corner

 

I’ve added a new section this month:

 

Crystal Therapy

 

I’ve started a new section in our newsletter this month, and I hope to expand on this topic.  In future issues we’ll look at how to make tinctures from crystals for therapeutical use– both direct and indirect tinctures, and we’ll look at other ways to use the energy of crystals for healing.  We’ll also take a look each month at what crystals may work for which ailments.

 

This month we’re going to take a look at five stones—Ocean Jasper, Citrine, Garnet, Peridot, and Aquamarine.

 

Herbs


This topic this month is health and healing, and you’ll find herbs listed, not only for healing, but also to maintain health.

 

Spells of the Month

 

The need for healing spells includes all members of the family and this means our pets, too.  So you’ll find a St. Benedict’s Healing Spell for Animals.  The second healing spell connects our body ands its functions to astrological correspondences.  The second spell will teach you how to make astrological healing waters using these correspondences.

 

Kitchen Wytchery

 

In keeping with our theme of health and healing, you’ll find a list of foods that are conducive to healing, along with a ‘healing’ recipe.

 

Tarot Tips

 

If you haven’t already heard, beginning April 1 I’ll be giving live telephone readings.  You’ll find more information on this topic in the newsletter.

 

Also—you’ll find links to merchandise for Wytchy Wares, Creations by Isabella, and Enchanted Jewelry with some updates listed and new things coming up that you might want to watch for.
