Sacred Dissobedience 

Magick From Scratch

Deity: You seem to be in a good situation, with respect to your household. Which of your gods set you up?

Me: I… Actually you can’t credit my gods with this one. Every last one of them told me to stay away from him. I married him anyway. So that’s all me.

I got to thinking about where I’d be today if I had obeyed the gods on this issue.

I never would have finished college. I’d be living in a place isolated from any sort of suitable pagan community. I never would have learned Kabalah, or Ceremonial Magic. I would have been unable to bring those exegetical techniques to Hellenismos.

I would be struggling with poverty. I might not have access to suitable doctors to manage my health conditions. I would be in pain most of the time, and possibly not even know why.

A core tennant of Consent Culture…

How I Ended Forced Possession in My Mediumship Group

Magick From Scratch

In my local area, the problem of spirits and powers foisting non-consensual slavery on people and individuals experiencing uninvited possession is pretty damn bad. I have been exposed to homes of practitioners who have had to ward their homes so strenuously that I couldn’t walk into them without getting a migraine.
I wanted a non-ward solution for a few reasons.
1. Ow ma head.
2. Warding creates a tolerance effect. Think about it like this: you don’t ward because you expect that the random spirits passing through are going to respect your group and your space. You ward because you believe you need wards to be safe. In a sort of pavlovian way, once you’ve been exposed to the idea of wards, you want to put them everywhere. You feel unsafe without them. Just as fast as your mind can concoct the imagined consequences of a lack of wards, the…

How To Blót ? – The Basics

Whispers of Yggdrasil

In the past few years, I’ve been writing about the Norse Pagan Traditions, feasts, Blóts etc. and I realised that I have never wrote a post to help people starting their blóts or at least giving a brief notion of how it is done. Some people have already asked me how to make sacrifices and offerings and I have always helped them, giving to them the knowledge that I have about that subject, but never occur to me that I could actually write a post about it and maintain even more people informed.

In the Hávamál there are at least two lines that ask if one knows how to bid (pray) and how to sacrifice.
I understand that so many have still a lot of difficulty with this kind of practice, no one has ever born with all the knowledge about these things. It takes time. We live in a world…

All Hallows Update

What I wore,  ADORE my new pointy hat! x3

Hello All!

At first I was not sure if I was going to do this, but in the end I decided that I should for it would help me in the long run. I am now a fully initiated witch in my coven! It took me a bit longer than others to decide on my name, but in the end I did find it. No, I will not be stating what it is on here, for you all have my public name (Kushiel Blackheart) and the other is my covens’. I’m wondering about deciding on a personal one for my solitary works, but have yet to have the urge to find it like I did with my coven.

We played several games throughout the day, ones that would let us collect points to get prizes and watched a few informational videos in between. The weather was epic, 70 degrees! We got hot while playing the scavenger hunt that we had in the wooded backyard. The Bingo game was amusing, for several of us were fighting to win via a single spot. Sadly, due to personal reasons we did loose a member on that day, but they were notified that should they decide to come back that we would do so with open hearts and arms.

I did have some videos to show, but my plan on here doesn’t support it yet.

Antsy Autumn

Normally once autumn comes around my body starts to go into its “hibernation” mode. Not this year. I don’t know why but I’ve been wanting to ‘move’ to do SOMETHING. I’ve started my plants, got back into my creative wire wrappings and oddly….I want to clean.

I have never really been an organized person, even if my astrological sign is a Virgo (organized chaos has been my calling card for years!). Bad habits from living with my mother continued to becoming bad adult ones and its something that I do want to break out of. I think this is in part of why I am so antsy, my physical and spiritual body has had enough of being stagnant and now wants to ‘move‘!

It is slow going though, for my many ideas require more money and time than what I have as of right now. It gets upsetting at times being constricted by those two things, but sadly I have to pull up those big girl panties and adult. Eventually I will get my ideas done, and then become more organized and aware of what is needed when I get antsy again.

Spending, spending, spending…

I was a very bad witch today….

I spent money buying more plants instead of saving it for lunches the next two weeks. xD
I couldn’t help myself, I finally, FINALLY got a aloe plant that I’ve been looking for months now. Wandered over to the garden area-which was totally decked out in x-mas items ALREADY-and found some russian sage! Then when I went to grab more salads, saw that they had some really good and healthy looking mint…… totally swiped it. I really was considering getting another rosemary plant, they were just so bushy and vibrant! Decided not to get it though since its been getting cooler at night now.
