February ~ It’s All About LUV!

Hello, Readers!

February is on the horizon as I type this, and with it Valentine’s Day.  This is the month devoted to love and relationships, and there’s lots of ways to celebrate it, look into it’s energy, cast spells to draw it to us, or peek through the universal doorway to the future and see what’s in the cards, where does our destiny lead us in this aspect of our lives.

I’m going to start with a little magick first…

A Video ~ “How to dress a spell candle for love”…This video will show you how to DRESS YOUR OWN SPELL CANDLE  to draw in love.  However, not everyone is so inclined to do this for themselves, so I do offer this very type of candle at The Witch’s Corner ~

https://amythystraine.blogspot.com/p/candles.html

 A Love Spell Bag

Only SIX of these bags are available for this special offer!…the first six people who place their order will receive the “Love” bag shown above; everyone else will receive an identical Love Spell Kit, but in a different bag.

This Kit Includes ~ 1)  the poppet; 2) a white taper candle; 3) incense; 4) straight pins (which can be used to attach personal concerns to your poppet, such as a name-paper, a scrap of material from clothing, etc.).  Of course, you may have your own ideas for using the straight pins; 5) 1 jar of Love Oil; 6) an adorable “Love” bag.

The value of this Deluxe Mini-Poppet Spell Bag is $39.99; but for a limited time I’m offering the Deluxe Mini-Poppet Spell Bag ~ Love at the reduced price of $29.99

To purchase your Love Spell Bag follow THIS LINK and scroll down, down, down to Special Offers.

Psychic Oil ~ What is it? How do I use it? How do I make it?

Hello, from Hedgewytch Hollow! I’m tucked in bed this morning with my computer and a fresh cup of morning coffee (my first one, actually).  My ipod is singing to me in the background (an Indian/Yoga/Relaxation chant), and if I remember, I’ll tuck it at the bottom of this blog post so you can listen to it, too.  I have tons of stuff to do on this holiday weekend.  Where, in earlier years, I would spend weeks preparing for this end-of-the-year holiday, I’m going to do it all in ONE day this time– today!  But my kids are thrilled that we are ALL off work and home at the same time, so I’m going to chill, and we’re going to “wing it”.  This is going to be a warm and fuzzy huggy weekend; I can see it coming. 🙂

Anyway, on to the business at hand– Psychic Oil!

First, all about oils…the following opening paragraphs are an introduction to the section on oils in my book, The Spiritual Feminist.  (There’s lots more in this book, very goddess-centered, but the back of the book is actually a grimoire, and this was the source for info on Psychic Oil…You might want to purchase your very own copy.  Just click on the title and you will be magickally transported to my Amazon Author Page.  Know that you can also purchase my books at Barnes & Noble, or any fine bookstore near you.)

Book Cover-- The Spiritual Feminist

Magickal Oils

I’m going to include in this section my own personal recipes for the following magickal oils right out of my very own Book of Shadows, or “De’ Big Black Book”, as I like to call it.  The ingredients are mostly mundane plants, herbs, spices and such that you probably already have on hand in your kitchen cupboards; but don’t be thrown by a more exotic ingredient.  You can usually pick up an unusual herb or item at any local new-age pagan shop.  And if you aren’t lucky enough to live near a magickal shop, you can try finding such items online.

The base for these oils:  There are a lot of people who insist on using the most expensive oils they can find, but the truth is that this doesn’t matter, not really; and if pinching pennies is a must, then go with a cheap bottle of all vegetable oil from the grocery store.  If you choose, you may use olive oil, or mineral oil, or almond oil, or grape seed oil, or even some other oil that you feel a special affinity towards.  In my world, pinching pennies is a necessity, so I opt for the cheap stuff, and it works with absolute gusto, I can assure you.

The herbs:  I’d like to say that when I create my magickal oils, I include the very special power of “3”.  I use at least three types of herbs in each of my oils.  You don’t need anymore than that, really.  Of course, if you want to include herbs not only for your magickal intention, but also an herb for the planets, I would add three more herbs to the oil for a total of six.  If you choose to include corresponding herbs to the Element you’re working with, then add three more for a total of nine…the ultimate magickal number (By the awful awesome Power of 3X3, so the incantation goes).  But remember, this oil is your creation, go with the flow, follow your instincts, don’t be afraid to create your own unique magickal oil…Let the Spirit move you.

Some people follow the practice of heating their oils and ingredients just until you catch the scent in order to raise the vibrational energy of the magickal potion, right before adding it to a glass bottle, sort of like giving it a “jump start”.  Other people simply add the oil and ingredients to a bottle and cap it off.  I’ve done both.  To tell you the truth, I’ve noticed no magickal difference; however, if you believe that this extra step will also imbue your magickal oil with extra strength or direction, then by all means go for it. Experiment with the process and see if you notice any difference for yourself.  One last thought…some practitioners will sit their oils out to bathe in the moonlight, or the sunlight, depending upon the energies they’re trying to catch.  Keep this in mind.

Can you simply go out and buy these magickal oils already made?  Yes, you can actually, but I suggest that you learn to make them for yourself.  There is no doubt that the personal energy you put into crafting such items adds to their potency, their power, and their effectiveness.  All the experience and expertise in the world can’t give a love potion as much “oomph” as the creator’s own steaming hot lust.  Remember, witchcraft is all about energy and the successful manipulation of energy to achieve your desires.  The more personal energy you add to your own spells, the more powerful you will be, and the more successful are your magickal endeavors.

Psychic Oil

Most people think that psychic abilities come naturally and just kick in with no warning, much like they see in the movies and on tv.  And this might be true for a few super gifted individuals in the world, but for the rest of us, who may have spent a lifetime ignoring that little voice in our head, we have to give ourselves a little extra magickal oomph to pick up this information. The average individual does not get two to three minute flashes (in Full Technicolor, no less) of intuitive information.  In actuality, it can be extremely subtle and extremely easy to overlook with all the “brain chatter” that we have going on.   Psychic Oil is simply meant to help us focus much needed energy on this aspect of ourselves, on our efforts to see what most people never will, on our ability to hear that barely perceptible murmur.  Once you’ve used and strengthened your psychic muscle, you’ll find that you’ll need this tool less and less.

Anoint your third eye chakra with this oil before doing divination of any kind.  Anoint your pendulum, rune stones, divining rod, or any other divination tool that you’re using.  If it happens to be tarot cards, or some other card deck, don’t damage your cards with the oil, but add a touch of the oil to the bag or box where you keep your cards.  Anoint and burn a lavender candle dressed with psychic oil to call up and strengthen your psychic powers.

Paving the Way for Love & Protection

Witch’s Bottles

sl383093

(Front) Left: Paving the way for Love Right: Protection

 Bottle #1
Paving the Way for Love

 There are so many inspiring magickal tools out there to draw love to you, but I’ve not seen anything created to Pave-the-Way for love.  In order to draw pure genuine love to you, you may need to do some cleansing and clearing of negative energy and negative issues that are baggage from previous relationships or awkward romantic encounters.  This could include something as severe as physical or emotional abuse, as well as irreconcilable differences, or non-compatibility issues.  It all leaves us steeped in a froth of negative energy that needs to be cleared before a new and healthy romantic connection can be made.
Bottle #1, Paving the Way for Love, is the perfect magickal tool for your altar or night-stand.  Hold it, burn a candle beside it, whatever you feel compelled to do to draw negative energies out of your body and away from your spirit.  Center on peace and joy, soul connections, positive energy, and beautiful expectations to draw successful fulfilling Love into your life.
Bottle #2
Protection
Bottle #2, Protection, is created to protect you by each of the four directions, to protect you by the four elements, to protect you from anyone wishing you harm, to protect you physically, mentally, spiritually, to protect you and your body, as well as to protect your space, wherever you might place this bottle.  Bottle #2 is also created to protect you from yourself, because often we are our own worst enemy, held back by low-self esteem, fear, uncertainty, or the opinions of other people.
Bottle #2, Protection, is created to protect you from all outward threats, as well as any personal demons.  This bottle works hard for you.  It guards, holds, and contains all the negative energies that try to harm you.  So give this bottle a cleansing bath by placing it in the light of the full moon on a monthly, or bi-monthly basis.

(Back)

Note:  My witch’s bottles are unique, each one created especially in the moment for their particular intentions.  There will be similarities to each creation, as well as differences.  Each bottle contains a scroll with magickal written intentions, as well as Sea Salt and a variety of herbs and other items.
The recipe for each individual bottle will depend upon my feelings and instincts while creating it, what type of flowers and herbs are growing in my garden, what bottled herbs I have in my magickal cupboard, as well as ideas that come to me for small items geared to the magick at hand.
This is part of the fun of hand-crafted items…enjoy!

From The Witch’s Corner ~ Making Incense with Your Kitchen Spices

I am a WITCH on a BUDGET! I’m always thinking of ways to Use What I Have around the house and incorporate it into my magickal practice.  One of my favorite things to work with is incense.  There’s just something about scent that puts you in a perfect frame of mind for all kinds of magick.  It helps me to focus on my intention, and it keeps me centered and inspired with all kinds of good positive energy.  We can’t all afford expensive incense and fancy burners.  Did you know that you can make Loose Powdered Incense from the everyday ingredients in your kitchen cupboard?  Well, you can; and this video will show you how to do it, and how well it works…the only thing we’re lacking is a “scratch n’ sniff”!  Enjoy the video, and have fun making your own incense.  Blessings, Amythyst
