Make a Sweet Dream Pillow

Do you have trouble sleeping at night? If the answer is yes , then it may benefit you to make yourself a dream pillow!
Dream pillows are small flat and filled with herbs and meant to be inserted into your regular pillow.
It is simple to mail yourself a dream pillow. All you need to do is stitch a small piece of fabric, ( a handkerchief is perfect) , so that the fabric then resembles a envelope. Remember to leave one side of the envelope open, so that you can insert the herbs. If you wish you can add a piece of Velcro to the open end of the pillow, in order to ensure easy replacement of herbs in the future, or, you can just sew up the opening after inserting the herbs, and just start all over again when you want a new dream pillow.
It is now time to fill your dream pillow . some of the most effective herbs for calm and sleep are lavender, rosemary, sparse peppermint, Chamomile is used as it is said to keep nightmares at bay.

I hope you enjoy making and using your dream pillow. Sweet Dreams!

Motherhood and Witchcraft, it never stops lol

So I’m curled up in my bed with my youngest daughter who was sent home from school with the stomach flu after without knowing she was really going to be sick, I had a strange feeling about sending her to school this morning . I couldn’t find a real valid reason to keep her home at that time, but sure enough a few hours later she was indeed back home. So now we’re just laying here, watching Peppa Pig, she’s trying to keep some 7up down, I’m sipping on some sweet blessed Moscato. Which leads me to the story about the witches runes I’ve been making from my collection of wine corks.
Normally Runes are made from wood or stone but a few years ago I started making my own sets from wine corks. They do roll a bit more when you toss them then wood or stone, but on carpet or a tray with sides I feel that you can get a easy accurate reading for sure!
I’ve never been one to just toss my wine corks, I’ve always made Wine Cork Yule wreaths for my Coven friends etc, written blessings on them etc. But the Wine Cork Witches Runes really has become my favorite repurposed project for wine corks.

But for those newer to witchcraft, my point is never be afraid to stretch boundaries, explore new ground, be inventive! Moms do this all the time, it comes naturally, and sometimes something works, sometimes it doesn’t lol
And that is OK!

I used the rune corks to ask if selling them online would be a huge success, unfortunately it doesn’t look like I’ve found the next pet rock or chia head, no , but that’s OK, if I sell a few and make a few friends happy with a cool Yule gift….. It was still fun to do, if someone reading this is inspired to branch out in their craft with their own creativity, then that is what it’s all about.

Meanwhile I’m resting next to my baby girl watching cartoons. Because yes that is part of my life as a witch too.

Blessed Be

Knowing you have the power to manifest, but not knowing what you want.

So I remember back when I was first involved in a local  manifestation support group. Not just Witches, but it was formed after the movie The Secret hit, and all types of people were starting to understand the law of attraction. Which we Witches knew about for years, just used different words and ways for.
Anyways so I was younger when I was in this group and had goals and desires just pouring out of me left and right. But others sometimes seemed to struggle with not knowing what they really wanted. I remember not really understanding how one couldn’t want something . How do people stop having dreams.
As age started catching up with me and having a third child and life and health taking some strange turns, before I knew it I was now the older woman of the group going, omg I don’t know what I want except a nap and maybe new glasses or some new orthopedic shoes lol
I went from creating with Erin back then a Television crew knocking on our door to make a show about us as Witches to barely being able to hold on to my job as a professional witch and having people find me at all.
One thing I have noticed and may help others who due to age or life distractions just wearing you down is first of all, its OK to not care about being famous and gorgeous anymore, I think those two things were the heart of my first years of manifestation, and we did pretty much get there maybe not super famous, but we were well known enough to be stalked !
And I look back at some of the old eBay photos of me and Not to sound egotistical but I was more gorgoues then I knew when I was in full shine connected mode.
But my understanding of beauty has changed over the past ten years and Its just not something that makes my top ten anymore.
Neither is being famous.
The things I crave as a older woman are harder to label, harder to make a actual goal of and most of it I do already have, so hanging on and protection of what I have has become important and I think this is subconsciously what may block some people, change happens, and when we shift to enjoying what we have so much that our desires become protective, we start resisting change. And if your in the mindset of resisting change , it gets a bit tricky to focus on wants, desires and goals , doesn’t it?
The way out I think, is instead of protective resistance is simply gratitude.
We all have heard it so much, but its true. Gratitude is amazing.
When we are grateful instead of clingy protective, its such a different vibe.
Gratitude has a way of bringing back connection to ourselves.
So I say to those facing new years resolutions or trying to make desire lists or vision boards and just not getting far.
Don’t force it.
Make a gratitude list, or board or celebrate the good things of last year, before even trying to co create next year.
And spend some time in the present moment, its really ok to just be where you are , enjoying things.
Your power to manifest is infinite, your not gonna run out of wishes, your not gonna shrivel up because you didn’t make a new years resolution . You still lived and had good times before you knew about the law of attraction or witchcraft etc. You’ve used them consciously now to really make changes etc.
But never be afraid to just run on gratitude and present moment enjoyment.
If you run on auto pilot for awhile as long as gratitude is the energy behind it, you will be fine.
It’s when fear, resistance and anxiety fuel the auto pilot that it gets messy lol
And if that’s where you are it can be hard to switch out of. Gratitude can be that simpler little step. If change is too scarey or confusing to focus on. Simply focus on what is good in your life right now.
It will put you back into sync and flow even if your not sure what you want to create. You’ll be right where you need to be when you eventually do figure it out 🙂

And if nothing else , my personal fall back , is to always wish for joy and well being.
It’s general and if the word joy is too intense to connect too, I’m really a fan of well being. It’s from Esther Hicks Abraham of course . But such a soft soothing safe word.
I dream of my highest well being, comfort, ease, enjoyment, pleasure. And you may not have a image of exactly what any of that looks like, but the words bring about feelings you really just can’t go wrong with!
How’s that for a resolution 🙂

2015 has been a rough year, even for a witch ! 

As we enter into Yule here and head into 2016 I have to be honest in my reflection back on this year. It has not been my personal best. My spell work clients are reporting back with success from the spell castings I’ve done for them but I admit my own work for myself, when I have actually gotten around to it has fallen a bit shorter then normal and some of that is my own mindset and lack of self care. 

Life is about helping others, it is what we’re here to focus on, it is all about love and helping those in our worlds but you have to also self care especially if your stubborn about asking or allowing others to help you. I got myself into situations by being slacky in self care where I have really had to rely on help from friends the past month and a half. 

This is a bit of a strange pattern of mine anyways , I’m all super witch till right passed Samhain/Halloween then it’s like I try and hibernate on self care lol And by Yule I’m climbing out of some self created mess every dam year ! 

Being a witch and being aware of the power inside doesn’t mean your ever going to be perfect at it, I’m a Virgo , trust me I try ! LoL

But we are gonna slack, have pity parties, space off self care, forget we know better, forget to use our powers, try to hibernate when it’s cold and dark then realize we just don’t have a life that allows that. 

Luckily being witches we can pull ourselves out of it pretty fast. 

Do your road openers, your energy amps, your inner sunshine spells . 

Sometimes our self sabatoge is just our higher self reminding us that we are Indeed a witch and we can indeed pull it together ! 

I remember back when I was very young and hanging out in various covens wondering why if these people were such powerful witches why some were so poor, some obese, some desperately single and alone, yet when they would help me with a spell or show me something I saw it work time and time again. Being older I get it now, being powerful doesn’t mean your not still human, not still distracted, not still prone to self sabatoge.

And when we go to help others we sometimes do it with a love for others we don’t always have for ourselves. 
So my suggestion for all witchy poos and everyone really is if you really want to magically create a awesome 2016 for yourself and others … Start back at the basics, love helping yourself as much as you do others or as close to that concept as you can get. 

Good luck!

Fall Equinox Mabon in Ritual and how to work in that Mercury Retrograde.

Aww, sweet sweet Mabon that brings in my favorite season of Autumn.
image

There are many great simple solitary ritual ideas for Mabon, that usually involve reflections and giving Thanks for all that you have brought to harvest in this past year.
The added bonus of Mabon in a time of Mercury Retrograde is, Mercury Retrogrades are all about looking back and seeing the past with new clarity.

The combination of the two gives us chances to see more clearly and honestly the true blessings that have manifested over the year. Things that seemed like endings that became brighter beginnings, and any reoccurring situations that you handle in new more authentic ways should be given much attention and gratitude over.

Mercury Retrogrades help us to see more clearly where we harvested even when we may of been in more grey or shadow selves.
And the gratitude we express during Mabon, can help us with brighter, more authentic harvests for many years ahead.

Simple Mabon in the Mercury Retrograde Ritual.

Take some time and clearly go over the past year, the ups, downs,
Find things to be grateful for, it may seem hard but they are there.
These are your harvests
Carve words or symbols of thanks for your personal harvests into tea lights or small candles of your choice.
While burning the candles give thanks to your chosen higher powers.
And feel your connection to all the world around you.

Samhain is the final harvest and gratitude based Sabbath of the year, from Mabon to Samhain do your authentic best to keep gratitude alive during this time.
The time in between these two Sabbaths is a very special magical time, try to walk it in Grace and Gratitude.
Make memories to look back on next year during Retrogrades that are full of good feelings and you’ll be surprised how magical this time was for you!

Free Easy but Powerful Transformation to Manifestation Solar Eclipse – New Moon Magick Spell

Free , Easy but Powerful Transformation Manifestation Spell For New Moon with a Solar Eclipse.

Materials needed
White candle
Toothpick-knife to carve candle
Sharpie for leaf writing
Bay Leaves or any Ground Tree Leaf will do

Smudge, and Center however you do your thang:-)

On your white candle, carve a round sun then cover it with the moon, leaving the partial elcipse shape of the new moon

Light your white candle and…
Meditate on the flame, that fire transforms and illuminates. Ask for clarity and truth during this eclipse cycle. Give yourself permission to release any and all thought forms that no longer serve your highest good.

On a Bay leaf answer this question:What area of my life needs something new or what is it I wish to see happen in a area of my life ?

Now on a second Bay Leaf or Leaf of choice
Look at your candle flame again and ask , What is blocking me from finding my ideal experience in the area of your life you wrote on the first leaf.

Write on the 2nd leaf that intuitive answer

Meditate on this or a similar release statement and from your core breath in power and be ready to release .

All energy is neutral. I now release and transform this energy into an energy source that can be utilized for the highest good. So mote it be!

Crumble the 2nd leaf over the candle and let it burn , focusing on the transformation of the energy becoming neutral energy again.

Now take your 1st leaf and hold over the candle , blow out the candle letting the smoke rise up and touch your first leaf. Visualize the new transformed neutral energy giving power to the 1st leaf

Bury the first leaf as a seed for your new beginning, either outside or if indoors a house plant will work! 🙂

When you feel like you’re clear, thank the Deities, energies, spirits, guides, angels, etc. you’ve worked with, and bury the ashes in the earth, and imagine your goals for transformation fulfilled. Blessed Be.
