How to Best Utilize the Full Moon

Yesterday we had a super full moon and we will still be feeling the effects of it for a couple of days so I thought I would talk about the different things to keep in mind when there is a full moon and the different things you can do during it.

What to keep in mind

It is very important to remember that during a full moon emotions are heightened. This can be great because if you’re feeling happy or some other positive emotion that will be amplified. However if you are experiencing more negative emotions they can be amplified as well. It is best to keep heated debates on the back burner and any other conversation that may spark conflict. Something else to remember is during the full moon we are more prone to overreacting and making rash decisions. So when you’re freaking out about something or about to make a decision during the full moon really think about it. Is what you’re freaking out about really that important or are you making it bigger than it is? And should you really be making such an important decision on one night? Is waiting until tomorrow an option? If so you should probably take it.

Things to do on a full moon

  1. Do an esbat ritual for the goddess of your choice
  2. Do a full moon tarot reading for yourself, a friend, or get one done for you
  3. Charge your crystals and cleanse them with the energy of the full moon
  4. Take a ritual bath
  5. Do some magick
  6. Clear your home of any negative or stagnant energy
  7. Connect yourself with the element of water as it is effected by the phases of the moon
  8. Work with your menstrual cycle (whether that is through ovulation, your period, or pregnancy)
  9. Dance
  10. Do a drum circle
  11. Sit under the moon and absorb the energy it offers you
  12. Do some reiki or get some reiki done to you
  13. Talk to the moon like she is very old friend
  14. Meditate
  15. Start a gratitude journal
  16. Focus on self love and spoil yourself a little.

I hope you all enjoyed last nights beautiful full moon! Let me know what you did with it’s energies in the comments down below along with any other thoughts or questions you have.

All About Auras

I’m sure many of you have heard of auras as they are something joked about a lot. When you think of something really hippie or metaphysical you probably think of auras. Do you actually know what they are though? They make more sense then you would think. People naturally give off certain vibes. Some people make you feel nervous, some give you joy, some make you mad. This all ties back to a person’s aura. So even if you don’t believe in them you are experiencing them on an emotional level.

Auras are an electromagnetic field that surrounds people, animals, and things. It may sound a bit crazy but even scientists recognize that everything gives off it’s own energy. This is the same. So, now that we know the basics lets get a little more in depth. So an aura has 7 layers. If you’ve read some of my older blog posts about chakras, or have seen this week’s monday video on my youtube channel, you’ll have some background knowledge. So the 7 layers are linked back to our 7 chakras. The first layer is the physical layer which ties back to the root chakra. This layer is connected to your physical health, pain, and pleasure. The next layer is the emotional layer which is connected to the sacral chakra. After that there is the mental layer which is connected to your solar plexus/navel chakra. Your fourth layer is called the astral layer. It is connected to your heart chakra and evidently about love. The astral layer is the layer in between the bottom three and the top three, so it is said to connect the two together. The next layer is called the spiritual layer. It is connected to your throat chakra. It relates back to your spiritual health and connects you to the universe. The sixth layer is called the celestial layer. It is connected to your third eye. It focuses on your intuition. The last layer is called “I Am” layer. It is connected to the crown chakra. This layer is about your potential connection with the divine.

Your aura is never just one colour at a time. It is a collective of colours that can express how one is feeling on all the different layers. The brightness of your aura can also be indicative of how you’re feeling. Something bright is more on the happy, joyful side. Where something dark or dull may have more negative attributes. Also, if you are in a rough time in your life and your aura is not looking the best you don’t have to worry about being stuck with that aura for the rest of your life. As you and the situations you are in change so does your aura. However if you feel like your aura could use a little TLC you can always cleanse it. You can cleanse your aura through meditation or smudging, just to name two methods.

Now, you’re probably wondering “can I look at my own aura?”. The answer to this is, with practice, yes. The easiest way to do this is to lay your hand against a white wall, paper, or any surface really. You want to look at your hand and let your eyes relax. If you’ve ever done a puzzle that has a 3D image you can see by relaxing your eyes, it is the same idea. Another way to think of it is to let your eyes zone out. Eventually you will begin to see a colour along the edges on your fingers. This is your aura. You can also practice by looking at pictures of people in front of a white background. Eventually, with practice, you will be able to see auras without the white backdrop.

So you know what auras are now, you know how to see your’s and other’s auras, but what do the different colours mean? I’ll leave some links for you to find lists of colours and their meanings.

Thyme

shutterstock_206465842_1024x1024

Thyme is an herb that is associated with the water element and the planet venus. The gods/goddesses it is connected to are Freya, Ares, and Aphrodite.

When it is used in spells it is used to increase strength and courage. If you’re working on something that seems unachievable you can use thyme in a spell to keep a positive attitude. If you find your home has a lot of melancholy, hopelessness, or only mellow negative energies you can wash your floors with thyme infused water or burn the thyme to smudge your home. If you find yourself having restless sleeps or nightmares you can put thyme under your pillow. You can wear or burn thyme to bring good health, increase psychic abilities and to make a woman more alluring. You can also take a ritual bath infused with thyme to cleanse any of your sorrows or regrets. Make sure to grow thyme in your garden for good wealth. It is said as thyme grows in your garden so does your wealth. Also, if you enjoy gambling then you want to make sure you have some thyme on you as it is thought to improve luck.

If you enjoy working with faeries you should keep thyme around and grow it in your garden as faeries really like this herb. If you would like to communicate with faeries I recommend you incorporate thyme into a spell.

Citrine

Natural citrine does not hold on to negative energies but rather dissipates it. This makes citrine a great protective crystal. It is one of two crystals that doesn’t need to be cleared or cleansed. This stone promotes imagination and creativity.

This crystal is most known for bringing money your way and also maintaining said money. It attracts wealth, prosperity, and all things good. It is also a crystal that encourages you to be of goodwill and makes you more generous with sharing your wealth.

This crystal is also known for helping people in their professions. It helps interactions for those in sales and other similar financial careers. It is fortifying for those in healing careers and stimulates work in government fields. It also boosts creativity for those who are artists.

If you are having interpersonal relationship problems with family, friends, partners, you name it, then this is a great crystal for you. It helps smooth out conflict and promotes solutions.

If you carry this crystal around it will bring love and happiness to you. It will also shield you from those who would otherwise break your heart.

This crystal with its yellow hue is great for balancing the naval/solar plexus chakra as well.

Despite all these amazing traits of citrine it is not recommended for those with a temper because it can amplify that emotion and make one aggressive. It should also be avoided if you are one to slander or gossip.

Thank you for reading! Do you use citrine in your day to day life? What does it do for you? Let me know in the comments along with any other thoughts or questions you have.

Green Obsidian

Green obsidian is used a lot during reiki to help balance the heart chakra specifically but also the throat chakra too. This stone removes hooks and ties caused from other people. It is great for treating the gallbladder and the heart. Not only is it great for relaxation and stress but it helps ease insomnia, protects you from nightmares, promotes the ability to flow with change, it promotes confidence, and helps you with the idea that everything is alright.

This stone is great for people who want personal counselling but don’t seem to be getting anywhere as it will help them really tackle their problems and help them become more self reliant. It is also great at keeping people away that will only drag you down with their own personal crises. Keep this crystal on you if you work with people (especially troubled ones) to keep your energies light and positive.

Lastly, if you worship Gaia, like myself, and you want to have some sort of tribute to her on your altar or make a little gaia jar this is a great crystal to put in it!

Happiness Candle Spell

Materials:

  1. Candle (yellow is happy to me so that is the colour I picked)
  2. oil/liquid to anoint candle (I used lemon juice and vanilla extract)
  3. Herbs for happiness (I used coffee, cinnamon, ginger, salt, catnip, cumin, and bay leaf)
  4. Something to carve with (I used a tack)

Instructions:

  1. Start by cleansing the candle and the carving item with sage.
  2. While saging ask your deities (or whatever power you believe in) to cleanse both items and to bless your candle
  3. Carve the name of the person the spell is for, the word happiness, and a sigil that represent what you want to come of the spell into the candle. Below is the sigil I used.null
  4. Next anoint the candle. Take the liquid you are using and dip two fingers in it. Take you fingers and starting at the top by the wick brush your fingers down the candle and stop at the centre. Continue this until the whole top half of the candle is covered. Then so the same process but start at the base of the candle and make your way to the centre. Do this for the whole bottom half of the candle. While you are anointing the candle visualize what you want the results of your spell to look like and really focus on it.
  5. While your candle is wet roll your candle in the herbs or sprinkle the herbs onto your candle. While you are doing this focus visualizing the results you want to happen from the spell.
  6. After this say these words 3 times (or make your own) while touching or holding the candle:

When the candle burns the name engraved shall receive love, joy, happiness, and peace. Today, tomorrow, now and forever for anything less must now cease. Anger, sadness, worry, and pain are gone for he (or she/they/I) release. From now on and forever more happiness will increase.

      7. Finish be saying so mote it be, blessed be.

I made this spell myself, I hope you get use out of it and feel free to adjust it how you see fit. Thanks for reading! Merry Meet and Blessed Be!

My Paranormal Experiences

Hello friends! Today I have a major headache (too much sun exposure I think and not enough water) so I thought today may be good to have a more laid back post. Today I thought it would be fun to talk about my personal paranormal experiences. I’m not a paranormal guru by any means and I have not experienced an extreme amount but I’d say a bit more than your average bear.

So my first story is about back when I was around 11 years old I’d say. It was dark out so there were no sun related shadows happening for the record. I was wheeling our green bin to the curb that night for garbage collection in the morning. As I made it about half way down the driveway I looked up and on the path to my house there was this little girl shadow figure skipping to my front door. I stopped and stared and not long after so did she. She then quickly disappeared. After that I hadn’t really experienced anything too crazy until I moved into the place I am in now.

I moved here originally with my boyfriend (Tristen), our best friend (Kate) and her then boyfriend (Max). Not long after we moved in I noticed there was some weird stuff going on. I found a random baby sock (we have no babies and neither did the previous tenants) in my bedroom. Myself and Max would hear people walking upstairs when no one was up there. One time Kate heard what she thought was the cats running up and down the stairs only to realize they were both napping in the room with her. One time after Tristen and I had left the house for the day, Max said he thought he heard me talking downstairs, only to find out he was home alone. So on Samhain I decided I would use my pendulum during ritual and see if there was anything going on. What I could gather from this was there was a male energy in the house who really got a kick out of scaring us. I did a smudging and he left and what I discovered when he was gone was the energy of a little boy who was being suppressed but the negative dark energy of the previous spirit.

I talked with this little boy for quite a while using my pendulum. I found out his name was Danny and he was 5 years old. Very sweet spirit, no ill intent at all. He had a tendency to hang out in Kate’s bedroom but tended to keep to himself. Not long before Samhain, Max and Kate had broken up and Max moved out. We found a guy through one of my friends and he moved in, Zach. Zach also seemed sensitive to Danny. One time, around Samhain I had porcelain dolls out for decoration. During the night Kate went to go get a glass of water but one of the dolls had a music box in it (you have to twist it to make it sing) and she could hear it downstairs playing. I’m pretty sure it was Danny. Whenever there is a lot of negative energy in the house that needs clearing Danny gets really quiet in the house. That’s when I know to clear it. Before I made this connection Danny was scratching me to get my intention. It never hurt. I would just find random scratches on my body when it didn’t make sense to have them. Zach has told me that he has felt an presence at the top of our stairs at night which he feels is Danny. One night in the upstairs bathroom, around Zach’s and Kate’s rooms the bluetooth shower speaker went off making a bunch of static noise at top volume. We have no explanation as to why as it has to be manually turned on. Also ,Zach had a friend over who said she saw Danny standing in Zach’s bedroom doorway.

Speaking of seeing things. Back in probably September or October of 2017, in the house I am in now with Kate; Zach; and Tristen, I was sleeping. I woke up and saw a shadow figure standing across the room. I saw it so vividly I jumped (waking Tristen up) and then he was gone. I was so frightened because I thought it was the presence of the negative male energy. After a reading with my pendulum I discovered it was my great grandfather who had passed a number of years prior who had a message for my grandmother which I gave to her (I said I had dream about him rather than saying I saw him in my bedroom).
