Divination for the week ahead: November 18th

Hello everyone, Mysty here.

So today I’m back with the reading for the week ahead.

This time I’m using my new deck, Angles and Ancestors by Kyle Gray and illustrated by Lily Moses. It’s a beautiful deck and I highly recommend it. It’s not one of those gordy looking angel decks, (that I personally do not like and does not mesh with me at all)

Before we start, as the disclaimer says, all photos which have content from another illustrator or author, all rights go to them.

So today’s question was, For the collective (you guys following my blog), what do we need to ask for assistance this week?

The answer was The Magic Guardian – Unlock the Magic Within.

I think that’s very powerful for this week. The transition into 2020 will be a rough time if we don’t get our energies sorted out. We must be vigilant and calm, going with the flow and following our intuition into the light of 2020.

What things do you need to let go of? What things can you cannot control? We need to let go of so many obstacles that are created by ourselves, and this comes back to spiritual and magic blockages. Most of which are self imposed.

Do you doubt yourself? Doubt your magic, intuition, psychic, empathic, shamanic..the list could go on, abilities?

I love the wings of the Magic Guardian. Remember that we can rise above our doubts and bring into the world great things.

I did another successful rain spell yesterday, with barely any tools. I love the spirits associated with the rain and the eagle which carried my message to the ocean and by the end of the day it rained! Hard. Not just anywhere, in Queensland, and on our property. You can make a difference if you just believe you can.

Magic is within you, outside you and within everything you see. It doesn’t matter if an object is inanimate or not, it still has magic.

Please tune into the magic around you this week, and your life will start to glow from within you, and change your life around you.

Seeing the beauty of everything comes when we are truly connected to the heartbeat of nature. Grandfather Fire, Grandmother Earth, the spirits of the elements, they are real and they will listen to you, if you develop a relationship with them.

I love magic, I love being a pagan, and I love being a witch. I hope you get intouch with your inner magic this week and try to reach out to the magic in your local area, I would love to hear about it.

Best Blessings,

Mysty.

Crystal Grid: For Growth

Hello everyone, Mysty here! Welcome to my blog.

So this is one of my crystal grids, I’ll be posting more of them in the coming months. Mostly to give as a tool for each of us to transition into 2020.

This crystal grid is one for love and acceptance of self, self esteem and personal growth.

It incorporates the energies of Serpentine, aventurine, blue agate, green calcite, black onyx, purple jadeite, and sodalite to bring all these aspects together.

Now for me, black onyx is a really good grounding stone, it keeps me in check but it also isn’t afraid to point out my flaws. Green Calcite is a warm, nurturing energy that is basically hugs hugs, hugs and more hugs.

My Blue agate over there is very translucent. I’ve tried researching what it really is but im just calling it a blue agate for now! I’ll keep researching that one.

Serpentine is pretty special. Do you know why? It’s actually the floor of the ocean, spitted out from volcanoes through processes which actually grab the sea floor, melt it down and shoot it out through the volcano and into the sky. Yep. That is the general story for every serpentine you see. It’s an amazing stone, and it is definitely for overcoming challenges, difficulties and past emotions. (It’s that big guy in the bottom left which looks lime-yellow).

I’m not sure why, but my idea of aventurine is always about going on an adventure! Going on a quest, maybe going on a shadow self quest to look deep inside.

This crystal grid is here to support you in combining all of these aspects to achieve personal realisation and growth.

How to activate the grid

You can use this grid anytime. Anywhere.

Start by either printing the picture out or having it on a computer screen or phone.

Get into a meditative state and ask yourself why do you need to use this grid at this time?

Set your intentions, and maintain a steady grasp on them throughout the ceremony.

Take a crystal which has a point and either:

a) tap the point on one of the edge stones in the crystal grid and visualise it becoming like an electrical circuit, getting wired up from where you are pointing towards the centre with white energy cords, feel the vibrations of the cords as the link each crystal up together, once all of them are linked up, the middle should burst into a colourful beam which sends the intention and energy of the grid out, up into the sky, or down into the earth, depending on what type of grid it is, and for what intension it is for.

or

b) Point the crystals pointy end to one of the most outside crystals in the grid and blow onto the crystal, activating the grid all at once, and sending the energy column where it needs to go into the universe, similar to method (a)

You can use any activation technique.

Ground and Centre.

Important notes.

Remember, the crystal grid is a time stamp. It is a grid that you can use anytime, anywhere, and draws on your power and your intentions. Not my crystal babies. 🔮🔮

Grids are like sort of a digital spell. It’s already laid out for you, all you have to do is activate it, in your own creative way and your intention and power sends it off, shooting out into the universe, and you intention will be met with a response in due time.

The crystal grid uses energies from each crystaline parent spirit (E.g. the spirit of quartz, the spirit of calcite) not the individual spirits of the pieces that I have displayed.

Cheers guys. Happy Be- nah not going to say it. Happy Halloween guys. Happy May Day. Yep I’ll call it that for now.

My Magic Practice

Hello everyone, Mysty here. I’m going to share what I do on a regular basis.

I don’t have a set thing I do everyday, but I try to, every morning:

-Meditate between 10-30mins

-Read all your blog posts when they come out in the morning. (Normally posts you might have put on the previous day)

-Read with my oracle/tarot cards what I should be focusing on or what should I do in the coming months, personal questions.

I feel like my decks have a small spirit of their own. They feel a little like a tiny breath. A tiny whisper. They are adorable and I love them. I should draw them sometime for you. And the raindrop spirits that are just too cute!

I normally choose a crystal to go with me for the day. It’s always a different one everyday. I cleanse them every 3 months. And I have wards around my room, which are pebbles, and they make a sacred barrier that cannot be crossed, and that is charged with energy and cleansed from the inside by incense or by white-golden light about every week.

So the pebbles (wards) are about half the size of a womens hand, and I have one in every corner of the room & on the window-frame. I sometimes put out some crystals/stones on the window frame as well so overnight they can get recharged.

So this eliminates the need to cleanse my room every week. It’s more like every 3 months. Because I’m in the closet, it is only possible way. Being realistic here.

Every night I normally say a prayer to the universe, to assist me in my daily work, both spiritual and mundane.

I also ask my spirit guides to show me messages in my dreams for what I might be holding back, suppressing or overlooking in my life. That could be related to family, university, friends and old emotions. Sometimes I’ll ask my guides to help me progress on my path and maybe release old thought/action/feeling patterns that are weighing me down, and transform them into something positive.

My regular practices normally don’t involve spell work for the fun of it. Spell work to me is a sacred act and a sacred duty. If I see a need, as a witch I feel the honour and the privilege to provide for my community and the community around me. Just like my rain spells, some real change can come about from spell work and so I do it only where theres a need. Which is normally about once or twice every month.

I do sometimes do spells for myself, or if I feel like someone has put a hex on me I’ll do hex breaking, or if there’s a spirit vampire, I’ll pull them off like a leech and swing them into an astral-plane oblivion.

Again, if there’s an Earth bound spirit in my house (which I’ve only had the pleasure of once) then I’ll set aside time to work with them too.

There’s always something to do, working with local spirits, ancestors, the Earth and Mother, are apart of me and always will be a part of my practice.

Thank you all for reading my blog posts, I really appreciate it. I’ll probably draw some of my spirits pretty soon just to give you an idea about what they look like.

Cheers,

Mysty.

Throwing a stick to bring back water

Hello everyone, Mysty here.

So I would like to thank everyone who supports me online. Thank you for reading my posts, especially when I’m in such a hole full of work to do.. in short I think this degree is killing me.

But I’m still here!

What I would like to share today, is an important step in any craft. How to actually achieve results, and for the most part, why do these results happen as they do, and how do we effectively control the outcome of our work?

Introduction

In witchcraft, there’s some substantial amount of behind the scenes work from spirit in general. Everything you see is either influenced by a larger spirit and/or has it’s own spirit. Even down to electronics.

Birds, trees, rain, leaves, you name it, if you just sit down in nature for a while and be still, nature around you is working. Ants are moving, birds are making their nests, trees are growing. They have their own agenda. How did they get that agenda? We don’t really know that answer, but what we could say is, the spirit of that animal is within each of the animals continuous. Each animal of the same species will likely have the same tendencies, same level of intelligence, same methods of obtaining food, no matter how bizarre and they live! They’re still here, despite all the recent changes to our planet, for the most part plant and animal life is continuing. But quite alot have become extinct and I’m pretty saddened by that.

How does this effect your craft?

Well, every one has local animals, plants, rocks, stones, trees. You have these sorts of spirits in your area. They provide you the air you breathe, the water you drink, unless you get it trucked in… The point is, is that spirit is part of your daily life.

Saying hello and talking to these spirits is a wonderful part of life. It truly is. I’ve been through alot of hardship this semester of university but I have been carried by my spirits more times than I can count.

They lift me out, pull me up to start again, to have best friends as spirit, is probably the best decision I’ve made. Within the last minutes of trying to finish an awfully lengthy assignment, an extension was given to everyone in the class. I was shocked. It was no short of a miracle.

I thanked my spirits and it just came down in rain. Gratitude is probably one of the most powerful magic you can ever do.

Spirit affects your life and your magic, if you don’t acknowledge the workings of life around you, even if you don’t believe them as spirit. Maybe just acknowledge them as nature, life, or another name.

How to achieve results

Theres a few things that magic needs for it to manifest into the world:

-Purpose of the spell: You need a purpose before you can continue and you need to have your intentions and motivation stuck to this purpose.

-Willpower: do you really want xyz to happen? Why do you want it to happen?

-Visualization: Imagine what would happen if this event did happen, what are you feeling, thinking, doing at this time. E.g. For a rain spell you would be jumping for joy, basking at the rain, looking up to the sky and smiling, finally thinking, rain is here! it’s finally here!

-A representation in the physical world: You need to tie your spell to something. For example, for the recent rain spell I did I tied the spell to the action of me picking up a dry stick and throwing it into a body of water. Why? Because I associated the communion of dry ground being made wet again with the stick splashing into the water and becoming saturated.

-Focusing your intentions to get your result: Throughout the spell, you need to constantly think about your purpose, your goal. Without adding in any negative feelings, thoughts or words into the spell which might counteract your willpower to change into xyz. It’s hard, I know its hard, I struggle with that sometimes, but you can do it!

-All things after this are secondary.

Why didn’t my spell work?

Probably because you didn’t do basic things like

-Talk to local spirits/Gods/Deities to help you. (If applicable) >Which all need some form of working relationship before being called upon

-Willpower: Do you really, really, really want this to happen? Is your heart in it. Inside the spell, radiating its energy. Please ask outside powers to help you in large spells (like changing the weather) because you will be utterly drained of, not ironically but the following :

—-Willpower, sense of purpose, energy fueling the spell.

— It’s kind of funny that I only noticed now that a spell is an equation, what you put in is actually taken from you directly if you don’t have other sources to fuel the spell. So please please ground your self, centre yourself. Afterwards go have fun! your work is over, go get a coffee, have some chocolate. Be kind to yourself because you might have some backlash.

-Not having the right mindset- Get into a slight trance to put of that logical part of your brain

-Not focused enough on the intention of the spell

-Whoops you might have said something negative in the spell about the purpose ‘my cat is wild and free -to- my cat is free to pee’ (thats just a rhyme gone wrong example) those sorts of peter piper sentences are really hard, especially if you’re like me who makes spell words on the fly. You might miss a rhyme somewhere then you’re like, well shit. Start over, Start over. Rewind!

Thank you guys for reading my posts! I truly appreciate it.

Being in the broom closet is hard, and I hope that I’ll be able to be free to live my own life soon, once i’m finished this shit degree.

See you guys!

Keeping your Electronics working as they should.

Hey everyone, Mysty here.

Have you ever had a laptop or phone not work the way they should? Crappy keyboard that sometimes works and doesnt work.

Well then you might be having the same issues as me.

A technician came out to fix my laptop, about 2 years ago, and about a week after he fixed it, it had the same problems yet again, just in another place.

So, I decided that because the warranty was going to expire, that a bit of magic was needed.

Before i’ve used sigils before, but I just put it underneath the laptop, and without much success. Maybe it will work slightly better for around a few hours only to belt out again.

But with this sigil, it’s lasted a whole two days already.

Ingredients/ Materials.

-Coffee foam

-1 leaf of your choosing

-Pen, you normally use, or you can cleanse/consecrate a new one

-sigil you know that keeps that part of the computer running, found in meditation

-A large ish piece of paper which can act also as a parcel for all the ingredients.

Method

0. Centre and Ground before beginning.

1. Gather your ingredients and make sure your paper and leaf are proportional, so your paper can fold around it neatly and make it like a little parcel, you can even tape yours together. The leaf can be dry/near dry or new, doesn’t matter, but I prefer that you guys say please and thank you to the tree you are using, it will boost the effects of this.

2. Think about the sigil you’ve got, and write it out carefully. Think about the function of the sigil and activate it with the coffee foam. The coffee foam is the energy of the spell.

3. Dab little blobs on the leaf, place the leaf ontop of the sigil, and imagine the leaf as sort of the guiding part of the spell, it will keep the sigil going and in check. The leaf has been around for a while, it knows how the outside world works, and its being used here as a link from the sigil to the electronic device. Even if its closed up in the parcel, there’s only going to be a piece of paper between it and the computer.

4. Wrap up the paper, making sure the coffee ish side is in some layers of folding, in a square like pattern, as you would normally fold paper. And sticky tape if you want.

5. Say a few words to activate the sigil, and run it over the part that is going to work. (but at the moment keeps messing up). When doing the ritual, be careful to not say anything negative. Mine was along the lines of, “This keyboard will always work, from this time forth, with 100% efficiency and capability”.

6. Keep saying the little prayer, and maybe even do some visualisation of the energy coming from the paper parcel into the computer/device.

7. When using the device, you can now keep it near it, or underneath, on the lid of the laptop, wherever you feel its best. You can tape it there, or bluetack, whatever you fancy.

8. Centre and ground after completing the ritual.

Alright so thats basically it, its very simple, but it works.

Cheers guys,

Mysty.

Simple Rain Spell in times of drought.

Hello everyone Mysty here.

What do you do in times of drought? For years, sometimes decades at a time, Australia has suffered in the past and currently in the present with serious drought.

Farmers are forced to watch their livestock die, sell their livelihood, their land, their way of life, or they think this trauma is just too much and they quit on life.

How heart aching it is to see. It brings me to a deep sadness inside every time I see burning fires or drone and helicopter footage which scan thousands of square acres that is just baked earth.

We need some change. A good amount of water. Well. As I’ve said before, don’t ask for something that you don’t deserve, no matter what. There is and still is a delicate balance to keep in this world. Weather you like it or not. That’s why when you try to do spells to ‘win the lottery’ they will 99.9% of the time fail, due to you being, inevitably asking for something that is a) nearly impossible b) material wealth c) something that you don’t immediately need d) is out of the scope of your natural means.

What I mean by (d) is, its not every day that you go and by a lottery ticket. Nor is it in your best chances to win. There’s a larger probability that you may get struck by lightning or bitten by a shark, than to win the lottery.

Magic, as we know at the present moment, works on probability, intentions and will. If you have all 3 of them with the right mindset, you are roughly (90%) good to go. The other 10% of getting a spell to work is things like environment, time of day, ambience, No. of interruptions, No. of distractions and irritations and so on. Even if their in your own mind.

Background

Why don’t people, of all religions pray together for some turn around. Some positivity.

It’s because people don’t know the power they possess.

Just three days ago, the very impossible happened. It rained!

We’ve only seen approximately 370 mm this year in total in the South East and now this tally can at last be added to.

But why did it happen? How did it happen?

From one. Little. Pagan.

That’s right, yours truely.

Preparation

It is an honour and a privilege to serve my community. Without praise or thanks. As I’ve said in one of my previous posts Rain Bottle Spell the local spirits, either large and mighty or the small, those small spirits you would sometimes overlook. I’m not the person who would. Even the little mist spirits, rain drop spirits to the large spirits of the water catchment in my area, the sky, the trees, the earth. Australia. I spoke to all of them, sometimes individually, sometimes as a collective through my heart, through my actions, words and thoughts.

I prayed for about 2 months before the rain covering the South east, from Sunshine Coast to the Gold Coast, putting out some bushfires on the way and sprinkling here and over there. That’s exactly what I aimed for.

But praying by itself, as I have noticed doesn’t do a lot, unless alot of people have the exact same mindset, ambition, will and intentions, Day to Day, at, probably the same time of day, to get the same result of just one simple spell. Those are just my observations.

I was aiming to help the animals, to help the trees the plants, to not suffocate from more smoke, heat and fire. My main aim and purpose was to let the rains stop the fires and hopefully stop any further damage.

The Main Spell Part

All I did was set my message, my intentions into the universe, and directly to the spirit of Australia, the Ocean and the spirit locoli to collectively talk amongst themselves to take the rain into manifestation.

I asked this, as I grabbed a stick. I said the words along the lines of ‘As I give you a part of the dry land, Body of water, please grant us a part of your wetness’ and chucked the stick straight into the river. As a I saw the big splash of water rise and fall back into the river I imagined the power of the river moving my intentions with its current.

Afterwards

An Eagle. Again! went over the exact site of where I through the dry stick into the river.

It was as though it was looking at my handiwork and thought ‘Hmm, this little witch wants some rain, I can organize that’

Yep, just three days ago, within a storm where meteorologists thought that ‘not a drop of rain was forecast within this thunderstorm’.

So if you’re just sitting there, looking at your phone, wondering who you are, what you stand for.

Do you stand for good? For change? Positive differences? They could be made by you. After all, you are a part of the universe manifesting in a body, are you not?

Can’t you see the difference you can make, to your life? To the lives of thousands of people. I hope that you can. Because, even though we may be reborn to a new body in our next life, if you so believe like I do, all that matters is the present.

I think our real purpose of why we are here, is to become more compassionate to others, charitable, kind, loving, generous. We need to become human. Otherwise we would learn nothing, do nothing and be nothing.

We need to start with small differences, to bring about a great positive change, otherwise, we are for-fitting a wonderful, cheerful life.

Best Blessings from the universe to you,

Mysty.

Obsidian – An Ultimate Grounding Stone.

Hello everyone! Welcome to my blog, I’m your host Mysty.

So today I would like to share my thoughts on one of my most favourite stones I have.

Black Obsidian.

Black Obsidian is excellent for anyone beginning or continuing their relationship with working stones.

Working stones work with you when you need their help and its good to start a relationship with them before you begin working with them.

This might mean including then on your workbench/ altar when:

– Doing a ritual if you think it’s appropriate

– Meditations, prayers, small spells and divinations

– On your table when you’re reading up about something or researching

– Reading a new book, maybe even talking to them what you found out or explain to the stone what you discovered in your own words.

– Reading up specifically about that stone, and seeing what really fits with your specimen you have and what it feels like to you.

My Obsidian, I’ve learnt over time, is very calming. When I’ve had a bad day or bad bowl movements (which is common for me), I’ll take it in my hand, and sit with it during meditation. Or I will close my eyes and converse energies with it.

When I say converse I mean, sort of evenly trade energies. So it might give me calming energy and I respectfully give it some of my bad energy, then I’ll direct that bad energy into the Earth.

Find the small little rituals which seem right to you.

Not everyone is going to channel, direct, feel/see, sense or connect with energies and beings the same as everyone else! Otherwise this would be a very boring world in deed.

Perhaps this is why our psyche has been made this way, otherwise authenticity could be mocked, misused, or completely falsified.

This is why each practitioner should have their own set of rituals, spells, and so on that they develop themselves. Of course reading material will help, but don’t do it word for word, action for action. Otherwise your magick will be lost in the ritual, and it would be ineffective. Like a mime who tries to talk by moving his mouth but could never have an audible conversation, so can the meaning of your words and actions be mimed, then no one can hear you.

Thanks for reading,

I’ve been very busy lately, and I will try to post when I can, but uni days will prevail until its over with.

Mysty.
