Writer’s Inspiration Charm

Struggling with #NaNoWriMo? Or any other long haul writing project? Try this goofy little trick on for size.

You will need:

– an empty tic tac box or small closable container

– glitter, in as many colours as possible (or foil, torn up. Shiny stuff.)

Optional

gold leaf

– oak leaves, whether real or paper

Steps:

1. Clean the tic tac box.

2. Add glitter, and any optional items

3. Close up the box and shake whenever you need inspiration.

What inspiration charms and spells are your favourite? I love using clear quartz, kyanite, amethyst and Tiger’s Eye whilst I write. I also love drinking lemon water, or a cup of black Lady Grey. Let me know all of your odd writing habits in the comments below!

Theatre Charm for Performers, Crew and Front of House

Theatre Charm SpellTheatre Charm for Performers, Crew and FoH

A theatre charm is a very powerful thing. Think of all the energy that goes on in a theatre every night. All the staff are creating an entire world from scratch every night, expending massive amounts of creative and illusory energy. This energy is then absorbed into the structure itself.

Ever wonder why so many theatres are haunted? The ghosts are attracted to the energy that they can feed off. You can feed off it too, if you follow the steps below!

 

You will need:

– the thinnest fishing line, preferably the stuff they’re actually using in the show

Optional:

– bee charm

– ant charm

– gold, silver, purple and yellow beads

-spiral/labyrinth charm

-transparent or pale purple or yellow flowers

Steps:

Make as much of this as you can in a theatre. Not an abandoned one.

1. Say: ‘Knot of one, spell’s begun.’ Make as many knots and loops as you can with the fishing line. When you’re done, it should be short enough to safety pin to the inside of a costume.

2. Say: ‘Knot of two, it will come true’ Add optional items. Try and stay away from any negative energies, before you close the spell with:

3. ‘Knot of three, so shall it be.’

(As always, please note that I can take no responsibility for any of these spells due to legal reasons, please use caution and common sense when doing, well, anything.)

Pathworking Through Poetry by Fiona Tinker

Pathworking Through Poetry Review

Buy it here: Pagan Portals – Pathworking through Poetry:Pagan Pathworking through poetry: exploring, knowing, understanding and dancing with the wisdom the bards hid in plain view.

I urge you not to overlook this book just because the author may not be involved with the same pantheon as you. The skills taught in this small volume are valuable to any person who is interested in communicating with Deities who may have been ‘forgotten’, so to speak.

The author has selected a bunch of poems and not only demonstrates how to use critical thinking and poetry analysis skills to find hidden meanings and clues, but also how to use the concepts and stories as meditations/journeys to communicate, worship and journey to various Deities.

This book impressed me with the subtle details – like how Gods are NOT spell ingredients, but actual People who should be approached with respect, and the easy to learn skills that are easily lifted from the examples given and put into practice elsewhere.

Although, if you are from an Irish/Scots or Druid/Celtic based tradition, you will find this especially useful.
