Casting a circle and protection before casting spells……

I will fill this with as much as I can so people have choice about what they wish to use and or how they wish to do it…

Life is about choice after all…

I will state one thing strongest tho… layer layer layer!!! dont just think the light will keep the bad shit out, dont just think the circle alone will keep them out either.. Layers of protection, even interwoven will prove strongest… My property has been blessed, shit does not come to my door any more, people come here and feel the peace and comfort that is how it is should be.

Now I do not repeat the protection around the property each time I caste a circle, I will set it, then just recharge it now and again on a full moon.

Ok.. Layers of protection first up. I start on the boundary of my land and work my way in. Crystals, salt.  I uses black based crystal stones in each corner of the property, usually, tiger eye, apache tear, black obsidian, hematite or snow flake obsidian. If I am in what might be a strong aboriginal area, I will do a blessing to the ancestors. Usually it involves thanking them with water and soil in your hands. If you wish to be sure, find out what tribe is from your area and ask elders for assistance.

Walking around the property, I lay out the stones and push them or bury them under the ground, as I move to the next I am smudging or salting as I go, visualizing the light like a huge sheet, moving with me to the next corner. When you see this sheet of light, see it rise right above the property and below the same, hence the saying as above, so below. When I get to the last crystal, I give anything inside till the count of 30 to leave. Then I push the light out and fill the space. See in your minds eye, everyone who resides here is protected, everyone who enters is protected and leaves their drama and shit at the boundary of the property.

Next is the house, similar process with the crystals, I also place a rose quartz tho in the middle of the house or under it if you are able. Any door ways get what I call a protection pouch, just a simple pouch with protection herbs inside it.

Protection crystals –

General Protection – agate, apache tears, aventurine, black agate, black kyanite, black obsidian, calcite, carnelian, cat’s eye, fluorite, fossils, halite (rock salt crystal), hematite, honey calcite, jade, jasper, labradorite, lapis (lapis lazuli), malachite, marble, moonstone, peridot, petrified wood,pumice, pyrite, quartz, quartz crystal clusters, red jasper, rutilated quartz, salt, schorl (black tourmaline), selenite, snowflake obsidian, sulphur, tigers eye, topaz, tourmaline (red and black [schorl] especially), tree agate,turquoise, yellow agate, yellow jasper, zircon (clear and red)

Protection from Evil – agate (especially Eye Agate), beryl, blue chalcedony (especially evil magick), coral, garnet, quartz, salt, sapphire, schorl (black tourmaline), snowflake obsidian

Protection from the Evil Eye – agate (especially eye agate), cat’s eye, carnelian (envious eye, evil eye), malachite, topaz

Protection from Negativity/Negative Energies – black obsidian, black onyx,  jet (absorbs negative energies),  kunzite, peacock ore, quartz, schorl (black tourmaline [transmutes to positive energy]), smoky quartz (especially in healing)

Protection pouches can contain as many or as little herbs for protection as you like, I also put in them a small quartz crystal for amplification. Once these pouches are worn, I usually bury them in the garden or burn them and retrieve the crystals for burial.

Protection herbs..keep in mind many of these will be available at your local supermarket, garden store or household shelf, it might be as simple as opening a jar, or maybe picking some leaves and flowers then drying them. Corresponding oils made by the same plants can be used in the mix before placing in the bag. These bags can also be made to be kept on your person, depending on what I have going on in my life, I might stick one in my pocket or bra for the day.

Protection herbs – peony, geranium, rose, rosemary, St john’s wort, snap dragon, clove, dragon’s blood, eucalyptus, wormwood,  frankincense, cedarwood, garlic,  lavender, myrrh, violet, patchouli, rose, acacia, angelica, lilac, valerian, sage, anise, dill, thistle, sandalwood, basil, bay, bergamot mint, pine, pennyroyal, black pepper, caraway, carnation, cedar, cinnamon, clover, cumin, rue, peppermint, fennel, fern, flax, lilac, lotus, mandrake, marigold, mimosa.

Ok, having these in place and recharged regularly every few full moons is the start. I then for ritual have certain jewelry, protection pouches, crystals that are on me or around me where I caste. My room is my safe place to caste spells.

My room is layered with, crystals, oil burners, candles, incense. It might sounds like overkill, but when you have had demon shit at your front door as I have, then yeah, I am not going to run, I stand in my power and increase the security, all the way yelling bring it the FUCK ON!!!

I am a single mum, my wage does not go far, so I always try and use things sparingly, thriftily and carefully. Most of what I use, can be bought for a minimum off eBay or from your local supermarket on the cheap. It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to be able to do this. A box of 80 tea light candles are just 10 bucks in the reject shop.

Your alter where you caste does not have to be large, you can use the good old kitchen knife as an athame, a branch that feels right off a tree in your garden or from a local park, collect feathers as you walk the streets or parks. Cheap oils, candles from the supermarket… bread plates make good candle holders…

Ok, casting a circle can be as simple as you want or as involved as you want. You could just caste the light around you and ask the lord and lady for protection, or for each quarter you can call in each element, angel, and visualize each one. If you have a certain path you follow, be it Egyptian, Celtic, Romanian or others. You could call your respective deities into the quarters.

Remember one thing, what you open must be closed! so as you open a circle and charge it, you must close it and release it. Then ground yourself! Sit quietly, eat something small and earthy, then ground yourself, go to that place in your mind where its at peace. Release all that you have done.

Binding and its issues…..

Binding has what I believe are big issues..Just as love spells..

You will never ever find me doing either of the above.

Why? because they are fallible spells and if you do it wrong you are then stuck with

the repercussions indefinitely.

Binding, when you bind instead of protecting yourself from the person you are binding, you are actually making the connection stronger and more solid. I saw a spell recently that involved putting the connection on ice in your freezer. OMG! so that person is then connected to you through that ice-block indefinitely…

See its all about energies and balance. Why would you give that person A. a connection to you indefinitely B. energy and energetic connection they dont deserve C. waste oxygen and time on them at all

So, you protect, dont bind, every time you find yourself giving that person energy of thought, grab that thought from your head and toss it away. Wish them all the universe and karma have to offer. Release it, dont tie it too you.

Now love spells… There is absolutely no way you can make someone love you.

You can also never know enough about the person, so that if you do a spell to tie them too you in a relationship, then they turn out to be a partner basher or a person who is not motivated to be a team player in the relationship. Your stuffed. Another thing that can come up, is that you tie this person too you with your spell and you both end up absolutely miserable.

Stop looking for short cuts, even tho its human nature, its something we should learn about ourselves, and not do it period.

Familiars….

What are familiars?

They are animals that come into our lives as either friends, totems, messengers….

For some they might be the humble cat, for others, they range from dogs to horses and farm animals.

Each animal will have a descriptive meaning about showing itself to you. Or you might have a lesson to learn about having that wonderful creature in your life for the time it is with you.

Don’t hold and own what is not yours…

Now what do I mean by this…

That grief that you feel from another, sadness, lethargy, draining feeling, fuzzy in the head, just really not yourself, but you know it’s not yours?

Cut it off! Ground, cleanse, cut the string in your mind, that is giving you those feelings and sensations, then shield yourself…

These things are not yours, not only is it unhealthy for you, it’s not your fight or feeling to have. This is your empathy and psychic connection being open.

Responsiblities as Healers and Openers of Doors….

Not really sure that’s the best title.. but its descriptive of what is going through my head.

We see so many people trying to open up and some even getting assistance to open the door to what we want most, peace and connection to spirit.

In my very first post on this blog, I spoke about how to protect yourself, from those who will not do the right thing. We ourselves are imperfect so we will still make mistakes, we will still leave ourselves vulnerable, even with all the information available to us.

So.. the point of this post…

If you as a practitioner who chooses to do healing’s and openings (opening someones chakras and third eye up), you have a responsibility of care, not just during the process itself, but afterwards. Which is why its called ‘Aftercare’

Don’t go getting shitty at a client who is floundering and in great stress after you have worked on them, it is your responsibility to provide aftercare and advice for what you have created.

Ask the client more questions and details to find out what is going on, NEVER EVER OPEN SOMEONE TOTALLY ALL AT ONCE THEN LEAVE THEM VULNERABLE! Open them a step at a time, filtering them as you go.

These people are having to try and live with the changes you have given them, even if it is their choice, its still your responsibility to follow up with care.

Second point to this post, no matter whether you come from light or not, never ever deal with anything that is in another’s house, space or person without permission. This has happened and will unbalance the order it was in, in the first place.

so much of what we do is about balance. Light cannot be without darkness and darkness cannot be without light. When we say darkness it does not mean doing bad things, it means that you can embrace it, use it wisely, with grace and power, if it is ever needed to combat the bad stuff (demons etc)

Even Archangels carry swords! Why do you think that is.. its because there are times, where they must defend using all their might and power.

I know I have been a bit quiet, I burnt myself out at work and have been ill.. hopefully I will be a little more active in here again.

I am still trying to think about the best way to pass on information about crystals, elements, layering of protection and more to you, so please be patient.

ME!

House and Personal Clearings…

I seem to be doing this a bit lately, be it in person or through energetic connection.

In person I just recently dealt with a very nasty attachement to a person, while I have managed to get it off of this person, it is still around and causing trouble. It is being kept there by negative behaviours and activities such as fighting with family.

Now I’m not going to put here what I did to try and help get rid of this attachment, it’s not for people who don’t understand it and can be dangerous.

Having my house protected as I have put in my very first blog post is what keeps them from coming home with me.

I have done personal clearings and healings on people as well, whether a it’s from this body, their psychic body or past life. I will be doing a reiki session on them and in my mind will see old wounds and injuries. I will them heal them as I am there seeing them. These can manifest in people in different ways. For me myself I have immense trouble with anything over my mouth or around my neck.

Soon I shall be checking out a house that someone’s grandad passed away in. They are finding the house very oppressive and difficult to live in, as I was being spoken to about this, I instantly felt grumpy old man in my head. So what I think this might be is going to a be one of two things a crossing over or a simple clearing of the space so that the family can move on.

Now what are attachments, they are a bit hard to describe, they can be malicious things big or small, they can effect your health, state of mind, in one case they are attacking the person in their sleep, taking their clothes off, throwing things around the room and more.

Again not everyone believes in these things. That is up to the individual.

Death….

Not sure why this one is the one that relieves the writers block.

Death is many things to many people, besides the fact that we will all die at some point, a common factor is fear.

So what is it that we fear and what has that to do with this blog.

Everything I suppose, we fear death itself, because we do not know what is next or is there a next. We fear dieing horribly, be it murder, accident, health issue, age or in horrific pain.

Why do we embrace life so frantically? Why do we want absolutely everything to live and survive even if that choice really isn’t what is best.

Reality is no matter what, there is birth, life and death. It is all completely inevitable.

So I won’t go on saying you should do this and you should do that, as that is your choice, your life and your journey.

I will say that for me, giving a being a humane end by putting every feeling, worry and emotion last, is what is all about being the best human being possible. It’s is having compassion
And complete empathy being able to thing of the other before yourself to the absolute fullest degree. The degree of letting go.

There is no better place than in the next world for those that are troubled, ill, traumatised or more.

No that brings me to what is after here and now. This is hard for many to deal with, so again this is purely my experiences and my journey what you take from it is your own.

I was given an incredible gift by my grandfather as he passed over. I was in a meditation class at the time, I knew my grandfather was in hospice and not long for this world, but I had no idea he was leaving us that day. While in meditation, in my mind I am in a garden, I am on my garden bench with two of my guardians near by, I hear my guardians say over and over ‘peace’ then I hear the fish in my pond in this garden singing the same.

Suddenly a light shines behind me, I see my grandfather there, a door of light opens behind him, my great grandfather steps through, smiles at us both, grandad says nothing but smiles and waves going through the door with my great grandfather.

On waking I failed to checks phone but I did check the time on the clock 2pm.

Several hours later after much conversation and a few tears, we had finished and I checked my phone to see missed calls. I knew! I quietly freaked out, asked for one of my friends to stand with me while I called. I got my step dad, he confirmed he was gone, then I told him I knew and what time it was. He confirmed it again.

He was at peace……

So yes there is more, there is a beyond, it’s not the end…

Blessed be
Lee

Witchcraft…..

Well what is witchcraft.. unbeknown to most.. we don’t eat babies, we don’t call Satan in, we don’t hex people, we don’t have warts on our noses and the one time I went into a catholic church to support a young friend in her Holy Communion, I didn’t get struck down by lightening, tho I am sure the bishop there that day was waiting hahahahaha. He made sure he introduced himself to me, asked where I was from and why I was there, then eyeballed me the entire service.

Witchcraft in simple terms is what many would say is a nature based religion and yes it is. It encompasses everything, nature, animal, energy, spirit, the whole kit and kaboodle.

You will hear us talk about tools of the trade, the Athame, crystals, incense, herbs, oils, candles, colours, wands and yes cauldrons. There are so many elements to this both tangible and non tangible, when I say non tangible, that would be our deities, the god and goddess, our elements (earth, air, fire, water, east, west, south, north) angels and much much more.

These tools are used in many ways, when people see the Athame, they see a knife, be it big or small and think OMG! as you do, cos to be honest knives of all sizes are intimidating, they can cause harm. In our case this knife is the element of the god, it is what we caste, open and close our circle with. Around that circle will be, incense, crystals, candles, salt, water and such, these will generally represent and correspond with earth, air, fire and water. When we are doing a spell or what we sometimes call a working for a specific subject i.e. protection, healing etc. We will then select more elements and tools that have a specific meaning to that purpose.

For example, for protection, I will caste my circle, have the crystals and other tools I need for protection. I will then caste the spell over those tools and crystals, then I send or give them to the person, they will then follow my instructions on placement of these things, right down to what is in their mind as they place them. Then we sit back and wait. We do nothing else!! Then I get feed back.

One time I sent some crystals and instructions with a friend at her sisters request. It was for the sister. She and her child needed protection and a resolution with their husband and father. Not two weeks later, I got the feed back, they were safe and well and husband was on track, getting counseling and they were moving forward as a family.

Just recently housemate started having bad re occurring dreams of someone about to attack her. I worked an Apache Tear Arrowhead for her, I cleansed, charged it, then set its purpose for protection. In her dreams this person came in to attack her, she had protectors around here but it wasn’t till I stepped into the dream and she pointed the arrowhead, that this person vanished. Three days later, on this plain, in the human realm, it has played out, with her being well protected and safe.

so that was just a little bit about what I do, how I do it and what it means.

Ego has no place in spirituality……

hmmm Ego.. why did this one come up.. well a couple of reasons, a friend suggested it, I constantly see it and self reflect to make sure I try not to have ego, as its counter productive.

This is and always will be a lifelong battle with anyone. The gift is to look for, know it and adjust to remove it. Even now just writing in here and what I have so far, even tho I am just sharing my experiences, it sometimes feels like ego. So then I have to check myself and see if there was anything I can do to change it or does it even need to change.

Now what does ego have to do with spirituality, lots unfortunately, there is ego, then there is confidence, the two when you really get close to them are worlds apart, but sitting back outside they can sometimes look similar.

Ego is thinking you have done it all and know it all, when in life no matter how old we get, we still learn. Till I take my dieing breath, I will learn something new even as I take it. Ego is thinking, we are there, thinking that we are all encompassing, thinking we know all there is to know, thinking that we cannot learn from anyone whether that person knows or doesn’t know what they are talking about. Ego is dismissing others experiences and knowledge. Ego is locking yourself to one single path, experience, thought pattern.

You see being a human we are fallible, we make mistakes constantly and by learning from our and their mistakes is what will help us grow and be better people as humans and as spiritualists. Keeping in mind, the first time its a mistake, after that every time its a choice.

Energies and attachments…

Getting into what my loving teen son calls mumbo jumbo shit! So if you do not wish to read about what is out there all around us, then please stop reading… Subjects will be ghosts, attachments, demons and the likes.

Ok, what I will speak of, is purely what I have had happen to me or others that I have helped and in no way is a broad statement saying that this is happening to everyone.

Firstly, I believe that energy is in everything, that we are on a different plain to the higher energies. As most say a lower frequency. We can connect with these things by opening ourselves through meditation to find our way there. Now saying this about meditation does not mean that it’s “oh I will meditate and get all the answers”, it takes time and effort and it’s not for us all.

I was blessed once with the greatest gift a person could ever have, I got to witness my grandfather crossing over. Now when people say “oh I can’t meditate because they can’t clear their minds”, it’s because that is the first mistake to meditation, you don’t clear your mind, you REFOCUS it.

For me, in my mind I will walk down a path to a very large well protected hedge, now when I say well protected I mean as I stated in my first blog post, you are open and vulnerable in this state. In my mind I see my wand or athame in my hand and open a door in the hedge. I step in and close it. Looking around to my left is a snow gum, slightly to the right is a garden bed and a bench near it, then further around a koi pond and gazebo, directly at the back of the garden attached to the hedge is a church, in the church is seating and behind the altar is three doors, left to right, past, present, future….

In this garden so far I have met guides, totems, healed and been witness to my grandfather crossing over, now I state this with clear clarity and certainly for several reasons. I am a sceptic, I will look at all other possibles before I come to this conclusion.

That day I was meditating at a group I was attending, I would check my phone, go into meditation, then when it was over just before we talked about what we saw, I would check the phone again….this day I didn’t check the phone. I didn’t get to it till hours later when I got hold of my wonderful step dad, he said he was gone, I then asked him what time and proceeded to loose the plot a little as that was the exact time I was meditating and saw him cross.

Further validation from my grandfather came in the guise is the smell of the old super fuel.. Lol weird I know, but he was a mechanic and loved tinkering and always in my younger years smelled of the old super fuel, now this smell was in my room in my closed house and it’s a smell that doesn’t exist any more…I sat back and thought, no it can’t be, then blow me down the smoke alarm beeped twice! Hasn’t done it before and hasn’t done it since… Validation again…

So do they exist, is what we see true? Some believe so completely and some do not. As with everything we have extremes, those who encompass it warts and all and those who live in what I call the blow the fairies up the bum brigade. Both of these things are dangerous and unbalanced. Now when I say unbalanced I don’t mean in the case of fruit cakes, but in the case of they are too far to one side and being either way leaves them to vulnerable to things like attachments and the likes.

To put a few of my experiences out there….

Level three demon, attached itself to a lady who was not protected enough, so when this person read a lady who is in a bad way, this entity decided that the game was on.. I was asked for assistance through a third person and with the aid if just a picture have dealt with the beast…. I will not go into specifics of what I do to deal with it as its not for the light of heart and you need a certain level of strength to deal with them.

I learnt to deal with these creatures when I opened a door while working with a wonderful group of like minded ladies. The reaction from that side of the fence and the ability to see and deal with them increased dramatically when all our energies where one. When we got together there were watchers, I could step in my mind to the next plain to see at least three watching me at all times. I once went out it my car and on opening the front door to re enter, I heard a very low nasty growling, there was nothing physically there and totally unexpected by me. It was what we call a demon dog.

I have lately helped a couple of children at the parents request, they have gone from sleeping very well to not sleeping properly at all, one young girl I attended to twice, the first I dealt with an entity and left a little boy ghost who she plays with there, with strict mother instructions to not wake her only play during awake time. I returned to her again after another entity came to her, a smelly man, again with just a photo I tuned in and dealt with it. While there I realized that the little one was completely open to everything and at such a young age she needed more peace till she is old enough to understand and decide for herself, so I have closed what I call her lotus flower on top of her head… So far so good!

Just last week I had to deal with another nasty critter, this time a demon of a sexual nature, he was attacking a 15 year old in her sleep leaving bruises… He too is now gone…

Now while I have pointed out the nasty arse stuff as an example, there is just as much good stuff out there too, they are family, loved ones, children, our guides and totems, who help us in some way every single day, with choices, safety and more.

So, they are here, they do not always explain everything, but it’s a possibility, I will always recommend seeing a doctor, changing environment or routine…. Process of elimination least to highest with spirit and demon being the highest.

relevant link about spiritual attachments

Now I am really putting myself out here and some might say I need to be sectioned by the doctors lol but I think most of you know me we’ll enough too know this is not the case…

Now some good stuff lol, energy work and healing… This can be done I person or from a distance, to date I have helped with healing as far away as New South Wales. It’s purely energy work! I am not a doctor, I can not do miraculous stuff, what I can do is clear and energize chakras and auras, resolve and heal past life injuries, see and remove attachments that sometimes cause us harm. Keeping in mind I can get rid of these things but only you can keep them away thoroughly, by living a balanced and safe life as well as you can without inviting them in.

Some people do invite entities into their bodies, for example channelers, I personally have never tried and am not sure I ever will, but I have experienced channeling in person and the use of ouija boards… The channeler was extremely interesting and the voices and changes impossible to fake, the ouija, was different, but it was a time when I started to learn just how strong my power is, when I can block a ouija board and a psychic medium from getting anything, it’s a sign..
