Re: Pain While Meditating

Deeper meditations will require some grounding afterwards. Even something like take an Epsom salt bath, or eating salty foods, and drinking lots of water will help to ground you. You could also release any energy down into the earth as part of grounding when you come out of meditation. The sensation...

Re: What crystal or gemstone are you carrying/wearing today?

I've been carrying my citrine pieces a lot lately. Using it for a deeper connection to my personal power and my solar plexus chakra. That one and Tiger's Eye for protection and power. It's also connected to the solar plexus chakra.

Re: Little Blue Boy

I thought maybe Shiva or Krishna. I don't think Shiva was ever seen as a younger person though. But Krishna has been known to show up as a youth, and a very mischievous one who is quite the prankster. Although I don't think either of them have any markings like you mentioned. Although Shiva often as...

Re: Should matron goddess match your ancestry?

I tried to find deities that were in line with my ancestry and just never bonded to any of them. The ones that I was drawn to and have a relationship with are not in line with family at all. You have to go with what you feel drawn to and the relationship will be stronger. If you try to force the rel...

Re: Eating meat..?

Ive been vegetarian and vegan for over 20 yeas. Only recently I have a been a meat eater. It just feels better for my body to eat meat, even though I eat it minimally. Many different paths/religions believe that as animals are slaughtered, obviously there is pain and violence around that, and by eat...

Re: meditations

Meditation is all about letting go of thoughts. When I do a guided meditation for my students I have several techniques to use to keep their minds quiet. Think of you mind as a train station, and you are sitting on the platform. Your thoughts are the trains as they come in. You don't want to hop on ...

Re: Question about Guides/Working With/ect

I work with a few deities, but wouldn't necessarily call them "guides". I guess they do guide me. But I do have guides such as animal, plant, ancestral and angels/archangels.

As mentioned above, I discovered my guides through meditation and shamanic journeying

Re: Witches and relationships

I waited awhile to really tell my now DH. I eventually started inviting him to participate in rituals and spells. Now he loves it. I'm very lucky

Re: simple spells vs. rituals

For me it depends on the work Im doing but I rarely call the quarters, cast a circle etc. I just do a quick spell usually.

Re: Developing your own symbol

You can do a sigil as described above. I was recently reading about Reiki and some of the symbols. Later that night in a dream I was given a new symbol to use for protection from one of my guides. Ive researched online forever and have not come across it yet. So before mediation or going to sleep yo...

Re: Rose Quartz broke - what does it mean?

Hearing your story I think its telling you to break away and let go. Sometimes when the crystals work is done it will break or disappear. If it breaks in half it means that you need to share its energy and give one of the halves to another person. But seeing as yours broke unevenly I think its telli...

Re: Temple of Witchcraft series by Christopher Penczak

I love his books. He is inspired by many different paths and they all flow into his practice which is neat to see. Ive read all his book and they have so much great information, I just dont follow his practice exactly. He lives close to me and comes to my area a lot for workshops but I can never see...

Re: Witches of East End

Now there is a movement for Netflix to pick it up and continue to produce and run it as one of their shows (similar to how they do Orange is the New Black). Seems like Netflix is interested so hopefully they will go for it. Id love to see them continue to do it. I can see it running as long as Charm...

Re: Artemis and Ganesh

I was working with both Hindu and Greek but have now gone to just Hindu. Ive worked with Ganesh for years and have a close relationship with him. I think its totally fine to mix pantheons. Do what feels right to you and what works for you. Also if you study religions and different paths you will sta...
