Can you spot him?

Hello everyone, It’s Mysty.

Today I asked my Spirit Guides, tell me which path I should take on my walk today.

I’m not sure if you can see him, but theres a lizard and a friend right there on the rock. Yep, that’s a snake. Gotta love Australia.

There was people nearby too, but the snake was pretty calm.

What kind of wisdom does the snake offer us?

Snakes are highly intelligent, have good eye sight and sense of smell, are fast, agile, and live in a variety of climates. From rainforest to desert, thousands of species have adapted and climatized over millions of years.

This snake, I believe, as it was rearing its head towards me, waving its tongue in the air before I flashed a photo was telling me to look closely at my life right now, and that I should take the time out to reflect on the year before it closes and to listen to my inner self as I slither down my own path through the lies and misconceptions of the world.

What promptings, thoughts or feelings did you get when you saw the snake in the photo? What messages did you get when you saw the body of the snake chilling on the rock?

Either quietly contemplate or share with us all in the comments below.

Best Blessings,

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.

A Meditation of Gratitude

Hello everyone, Mysty here. Recently I have been doing sitting and walking meditations and focusing them on gratitude.

My life after doing this has transformed into a happier and healthier one. The things I am grateful for, even if they are small, have also transformed into great things.

I had a long assignment due on the weekend. It was tough and I didn’t think I would finish in time. But I thanked the universe for giving me the opportunity to go to university, to be educated and to have enough time to complete the assignment. Gratitude is a part of magic that both affirms and keeps energy rolling.

Gratitude is powerful magic, and is probably what people get confused with ‘positive affirmations’. But the problem with positive affirmations is if you just positively affirm that something is true, it doesn’t always work.

Rather, take the time out of your schedule, out of your busy life, just to walk around for 10 minutes during your lunch break. Actually be grateful in the moment of where you are, be grateful for the body you have. Don’t dwell on the negative things you see, try to see the uplifting things around you, and the area you live in will come alive.

Start talking to local spirits, they are in fact the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the earth you stand on. They are your life line and without them, you wouldn’t be alive.

I talk to them everyday, no matter what my schedule and they thank me for that, I feel them behind me everyday, helping me progress into someone better.

You know I can’t remember the last time I was angry with someone. Really. I can’t. I just don’t want to be angry anymore, nor do I want to cause anger or hurt. I rather talk to them about what’s bothering me, what I would like them to change or do to make something be better than raise my tone and get upset.

I feel like this is directly been cultivated by my meditations of gratitude and I hope that you can start a practice of it too.

Some tips:

– Don’t wait for something to be grateful for. Do something, be grateful for the outcome you need as though its already occurred and go for it

-Be grateful for what you have, your garden, house, trees, shelter, food, water. We should be reminded that the essentials we need to survive could be taken away at any moment. Some areas of the South East near Brisbane are not getting supplied water, anyone could be next. It’s up to each one of us to be prepared, get some water tanks and boil rain water.

-Do a walking meditation. Start by focusing on your breath and your body. How does it feel? Tense in this part? loose in the other? Just let everything go. Breathing in and out, once you feel you’re ready, have a look around you. What do you see? Birds, leaves, tree bark, snow, rain drops, cars, buses. Doesn’t matter what you see, just have an attitude of gratitude and you will see the world become so much different.

Thank you guys for reading. Mindfulness and gratitude go together, like peas in a pod. No matter where you are or what your circumstances, we should be grateful for what we have, no matter how small. That small bit of gratitude will transform into large, large blessings for your life.

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.

Animal Symbols -#2- Eagle

Hello everyone, Mysty here. Back with another Animal Symbols post.

So exciting!

Have you ever seen an eagle, flying gracefully in the sky. How it has that sense of higher things, flight and wisdom?

I did see one last week! It was beautiful. Only there for one second then its gone. It showed up while I was having a funeral for one of my animals.

Having a homestead means having a few of your animals die. That’s just life. But sometimes you need to be reminded that life is about having fun. There’s some good times and bad times, but no one said you can’t have any fun. The Eagle told me to slow down a bit, stop being so emotional and have a higher perspective.

The animal was suffering. Obviously. It was time to go. There will always be an end to a suffering. Maybe that will be death, or recovery. Both are for the best. To end the suffering.

Eagle, wanted me to know that a higher perspective was what I needed. Focusing on the here and now are great, but a universal perspective is also in decline.

What does the Eagle mean to me?

  • Grace
  • Wisdom
  • Eye in the sky, perspective
  • Letting go of emotional attachment
  • Being in touch with the flow of life. Qi/Ki/Chi
  • Listening to your inner guidance/wisdom

The Eagle, and all animal totems have a special place in this world and the spirit world.

To invoke their medicine in our life is truely an honour. Let’s keep the respect up. They want to work with us if only we listen.

Best Blessings,

Mysty.
