ok so i had one doll left over after i made christmas presents. it started out as a mess up, but then i realized i didnt want it as a mess up doll. i was reading a book my mother got me for christmas and it was listing the different chakras, and it was something i had wanted to learn for awhile now, but had no motivation. then i came up with a great way that i will remember them...

ugh wow i did the unthinkable today. well since john was home i didnt have to watch the kids like a hawk today. i locked myself in my room, and i cleaned. yeah, me. cleaning. well, more like organizing. my altar was a distaster area. everything had just piled up on it and soon became a place to stick things i wasnt using. so i revamped it. every year i like to redo it, and set it up differently. i had a new idea for some things on it. it just really needed something new. it was definately time for a change. i took different colored candles, corresponding with the meanings, looked up what herbs go with the meanings, stuck each candle in a seperate dish, and surrounded each condle with a different herb. it looks really nice, and im happy with it that way. now any time i need something specific i can just grab which candle i need.

the rest of the altar clean-upCollapse )

Keturavamp and I, have decided to start a coven here in mysticalaltars, and we would love all members to join! At least once a month, we're going to create a circle of magick for everyone to post a petition of our wishes here. And in prayer for each other, we'll follow the ritual magick steps at home. It'll be fun, positive level, and upbeat.



  • Three Pennies
  • Pen w/ Small Paper
  • a cup (fill half with water)
  • Two Candles (any of your fav. colors)


Our first ritual ceremony will take place Saturday Night, January the 1st.
On Saturday, you'll post your wishes here.

After everyone posts their wishes here's the ritual:
Light the 2 candles...
fill half of the cup with water...
write each members name on the small piece of paper...

Then in the dark by candlelight, focus and pray for each wish, counting to 8 each time... (8 symbolizing infinite power) then drop the 3 pennies in the cup of water to symbolize a magical wishing well. On one corner just lightly burn the paper quickly through one candle. Then lightly burn the opposite corner with the other candle.
(Fire element to symbolize power, fruition, action and passion.)
Now as the wish master, reach in and take out the 3 baptized pennies.

Next, go outside and wish for yourself, and toss one penny out into the street or yard. Then wish for your coven, and then toss the next penny. This completes the spell. *Keep the 3rd penny and fold the small burned paper around it, and then hide it somewhere in your house.
Then come online, and post here to let us know you did the spell!
Its that easy!

if you were to put together a take-along spell bag, what would you add to it? i had this idea of putting one together, nothing too elaborate, just with a few simple things i may need for quick spells or something, maybe charms... anything you might have as an idea would be appreciated.

yuletide greetings [21 Dec 2004|11:24am]

keturavamp
hope everyone has a good yule.
is anyone doing anything special to celebrate? im probably going to do something, but it wont be until later. i was thinking of burning some sort of oil, thats what i always do. i know, pretty boring, but i feel so peaceful and happy when i make up something and burn the ingrediants in an oil, and the scent goes through the entire house. it seems so magical, so to speak.

Ok I can't think of the title off hand... but its this tape I listened to about Familiars... This woman, said that she believes we have 3 main spirit guide animals that are always there to asist us. And during particular periods of our life, they'll show up to protect us, warn us, or help us notice things...

And she had said that, she'd notice owls around her, and ironically some people gave her Owl gifts, and one friend gave her an Owl keychain. And she really cherished it. Around that time, when all the owls were popping up, she went on a trip. She felt uncomfortable on the flight. It was late at night, and there was a storm. So she reached into her purse, and grabbed her owl keychain. There was some technical problems with the plane, and it became a panicy situation, there were mechanical problems, which can seem terrifying on a plane, etc etc... and it seemed like a life threatening sitution. And she said, there she was sitting there holding her owl keychain, and praying that everything would be alright... So in the end, the plane landed safely, but with a lot of turbulence... And after that flight, the Owl symbols never really surfaced as powerfully as they did before.

Also, a friend told me that she'll see a stray cat right before a tragic relationship breakup. Its happened to her 3 times. And after the second time, it really made her prepared for the worst in the best way.

_unmundane_



Tonight, October 14th 2004 a wonderful person is to pass on to the other side, Shinning brightly.
A good friend of Many, a Inspiration to all young Pagans, and A good mother to two wonderful Boys, Madonna, Is to Pass on to the other side, suffering from Liver Failure, and Enternal Bleeding.
The doctors have said there is still a slight chance she could survive With a liver transplant, But Madonna wouldn't have that, The stubborn Old Witch!
She requested the doctors to Unplugg all machinary, and Take out all the IV's keeping her alive, and Lock her in a quite room with her boys, whom she wants to play the Drums for her as she passes on.
Although there is A slight chance of survival on her own, It is unlikely.
She Is Still alive this very moment, But slowly, her body is slipping away.
This woman means so much to Me, as well as others, and her passing will affect many greatly.
I Ask of you now, To light a candle for this Brave, Spiritual, Beautiful, And Wise Woman, for her survival. Even If she passes on, I Ask of you to light a candle, guiding her way to the Other side.





"There is no Hell, we Do Not Die, We Are Not Gone, We are Alive, We Are Just on The Other Side, We are Not Dead, We are Alive, We Do Not Die..."

debate question [13 Oct 2004|03:49pm]

keturavamp
[ mood | curious ]

ok heres something for starters. not really much of a debate, but i would like to hear some of your answers, then i will share mine.
if you were asked this question, what would your reply be?

so what kind of pagen are you exactly? And why? I mean, really, what is the point? Do you really think that your gods are real? What in the world ever lead you astray that you would think that there is more than one God, and Savior, and friend?
I would love to get into a theological debate with you concerning all of this. My God is a faithful God. and more than that, He is a living God. The only one.
Reply back!!


**i actually received this when i opened up the community on deadjournal. obviously, i didnt give them the answer they were looking for, since they never responded back with a retort**

keeping with the theme... [04 Oct 2004|06:27pm]

[ mood | hungry ]

samhain oil:
amethyst rock
lavender oil
nutmeg, sage, and bayleaves.

annoint the stone in blessed water before beginning, then set it in the glass you plan on mixing the oil in.
pour the lavender oil in the glass, over the stone.
hold the glass over a flame and begin to boil.
while cooking, mix in a bayleaf, nutmeg, and sage. continue to boil.

once it is to the desired heat, you may bottle some, use some as incense, and burn the rest in the cauldron. in the jarred sectioned, be sure to keep the leaves and herbs in the oil.
