Soap spell

Postby BlackMirror » Mon Sep 30, 2019 9:59 am

Or a ritual I guess since it will be daily. Bought a bar of Earth soap at the local pagan shop. Carved a bind rune in it for grounding and intuition. Going to start using it daily until it's gone for October to get in the right mind set for the change in season and the more open exchange with the spirits. Just thought I would put it out there since I have now thought about doing this to regular bars for things like protection, anxiety, dreaming. You can also remelt soap and add herbs or oils for intent then carve. Also easy first spell for people looking to get started. Let me know if you try it and what it was like. I will try to keep updates going on how mine is working.

I used to carve a bit into soap. Thanks for reminding me.
Which rune is the bind rune?

I look at is as a rune of change. Transformation. It's the Yew rune so I also associate it with Ull who sits on Wodan's seat when he is out traveling.

Can you help me?
The Yew,
I live in the city that has the word for a Yew tree in its middle. I'd be seeking ways to leave this otherwise profaned city but the Yew essence seems to be deeper and stronger than the frivolity of current inhabitants.
Also name of my love contains a reference to the Yew tree. (Not sure if she even lives since the most beautiful tree we considered ours was a willow specie called 'the cemetery willow'.) My name contains a word the way Greek Hades is pronounced.

Trouble being I still have little to no idea how to make this into a working system, how to make this - if it is one's nature - to be lived by a man walking on the Earth.

What is the Yew's will actually? How would it want to shape the city that belongs to it?
The purple/indigo corresp. to Eiwas seems to fit and the more I think of the Yew the more I see it as beautifully black.


Ull seems to be mysterious and not much defined in the present lore?

Will it regrow solid? Do you add any water in the process?

To make the soap: https://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-New-Bar-of-Soap-from-Used-Bars-of-Soap

What I know about yews is they are poisonous. They can live a long time and they will split when heavy and keep growing. This gives them a thick bottom and large leaf spread. Ull or Ullr is the god of archery and skiing. Yew is a soft wood like pine but harder than most soft woods so it was used for bows. There is some speculation that Yggdrasil is not ash but yew. Seems to be an old species and sacred. The word for brown in German derives from yew so you seeing black or a dark color makes sense.
