New Itty Bitty Celtic Witch Shop

        After spending a couple of months with Etsy, I must admit I've gotten a tad tired of it so I've decided to open up my own website. Its really quite a scary venture, thoughts of will I get any traffic? any visitors? any customers? have been running through my head for the past two months that I've been designing my site. Why am I sharing this with you now? Because I'm finished, last night after looking over my site and its various pages for what felt like the tenth billion time I figured it was time to share my project with the world and see where it went. I hope you'll take a second to have a peek at my page, feel free to let me know your thoughts and suggestions in the comments below!

       So without any further ado, here it is all officially and such:

       Oh and before I forget, if you use this coupon code: FBOPENINGSPECIAL you'll receive 10% off of your purchase!!! Yay for savings and coupons.

Crystal Dreaming

         Ever since I started working with crystals a few months ago (around May), I've been dreaming of crystals. I'm not talking about the expensive kind, or the kind that we see in commercials for jewellery stores, I'm talking about bare butt naked rocks tumbled or raw, like quartz, amethyst, calcite, nummite and so on.I might not dream of them every night but at least once a month probably more like a couple times a month I have a dream about them.

        If I'm not mistaken one of the first crystal dreams I've had, was about lapis lazuli. For some odd reason I was in a crystal shop (in the dream) located in the stereotypical west, i.e. where the deer and antelope roam. I've still no idea why I was in cowboy country but either way I was in a crystal store. While there I was hovering my hand over the crystals in the shop the way that I hover my hand and over things to feel for their energy.While I was a hovering over the lapis lazuli it literally jumped into my hand, like harry potter in the wand store.

       Then last night I dreamt of quartz on a whole other level. Okay so you're probably wondering how the heck it gets more next level then stuff flying into your hands, or maybe you're not because you've already dreamt something like this. But, in case you haven't been crystal dreaming, here's what happened.

      So there I was in my dream at my old house in the backyard I grew up playing in and even though the yard was quite a bit larger in my dream, I knew it was my old home. I wasn't alone in the yard there were at least 10 others there, maybe more, and we were all standing in a circle holding a circular piece of rope with a clear quartz crystal in it every few inches or so. While standing in the circle each of us grabbed at least two crystals in each palm and wrapped our wrists in the rope. Then, this is where it gets really odd, we all started levitating. Yes, levitating, floating in the air still in that circular formation for a few seconds (which seemed like eternity) before we all came back to the ground again with some people levitating longer than others (like me).

      I'm not sure whether I levitated longer because it was my dream or what but nonetheless I still levitated with a bunch of people holding on to a piece of quartz crystal. Needless to say I'm carrying my quartz with me today, and on the off chance I started levitating in reality I'll let you know.

Meeting the Morrighan

      I started writing this post on my phone but I'm having a technologically inept moment and can't seem to transfer it to my email, deep sigh... so I decided to just rewrite it here.

      A couple of days ago after watching some witchy youtube I decided that I needed a little mediation for me, just to centre myself and all that jazz. So I got all comfy, made my circle, lit a candle, put my chunk of rose quartz in one hand and nummite in the other (which is good for shamanic work). So there I am all comfy and settled in my circle quietly repeating a mantra of peace and blessings when all of a sudden I felt this black energy begin to swirl inside my circle. Now, black energy or energy that is coloured black isn't always bad, after all don't we use black candles for banishing and the new moon for regeneration? But this time I wasn't entirely sure what was up and I certainly was not about to willy nilly trust this random energy that was swirling inside my circle, so I gathered up my light and blasted my circle and shortly thereafter, with some much appreciated help from my spirit guides said black energy disappears.

       Okay cool, so the black energy is gone and I'm still relatively calm inside my circle when I realize that oh hey I'm on the hedge. I didn't really plan for this to be a hedgy adventure but that is the way of the craft, sometimes surprises happen. So anyways there I am with a foot in the Otherworld when I feel a different black energy begin to swirl. This time its much blacker or I guess you could say a purer black, and it wasn't all around me or in my circle. This time it was off to my left, which would have been a southern direction and it was all around a specific entity. It was also more than just black, the energy was also intermingled with a deep dark red, almost like blood or crimson. Instantly I got the feeling that the Morrighan was visiting.

       I've had the feeling that the Morrighan has been around before but never had her energy come so close to me. I didn't see her face, or any sort of physical figure I just got the overwhelming sense that this was her. To top it off I felt the presence of a crow (or possibly raven I have a hard time distinguishing between the two) at the same time her energy appeared before me in the otherworld. Even when I came back to Earth just moments later, the crow's energy remained nearby (though I felt she was herself still in the Otherworld), for the rest of the evening.

      After that I placed down my nummite, having had quite enough hedgy for the night, and clasped the rose quartz between my palms and filled my home with sparkling love energy just to be safe. I did thank her for her visit right after I was back in my room, but I think I'll figure out a way to honour her a bit more in the future, after a wee rest that is.

New Forms of Media

     Today I decided to finally just jump in and make first youtube video. Its not fancy pants, it doesn't have glitter or cool effects but its my first video so if you could cut me some slack that would be awesome. In the vid I talk a little bit about how I started on this path but mostly its just a hey witchy world this is me! Don't worry I'll still be writing blog posts, nothing could ever deter my love of writing, but if you feel like checking out the videos I make I will link to them here, feel free to watch... or not, either way have a lovely first week of September!

Having a Day

     Today started with an early wake up at 6:15 am a run round my half unpacked apartment getting dressed and doing the almost daily search for my glasses. I should've got up fifteen minutes earlier but I didn't, which meant that when I left my home at 6:30 am I realized I had 25 minutes until my greyhound to Toronto arrived and the bus to tale me to the terminal wouldn't show up for an extra 13 mins. So I raced around the corner to try and see if another bus could get me to to the terminal earlier only to realize the first bus would come sooner so I raced back to the bus stop, got on that bus and arrived at the terminal as I watched my greyhound to Toronto pull away.

      The whole point of getting to that bus was to make an orthodontist appointment at 10:00 am and I knew the next greyhound would not get me there until 10:30 so I figured I'd try my luck with the go train or via rail. After walking fifteen minutes to the train station half dazed I was informed that I had in fact missed the train by fifteen minutes... apparently all the buses leave Kitchener at 7am. So I bought a go bus ticket and waited for an hour or so to get on the first of two buses. All went smoothly with that until we hit a wall of traffic and I missed my connection. Finally I got off the final bus at 11:00 am about four and a half hours after I'd woken up without so much as a sip of water in the meantime because the train station where I waited for an hour didn't even have a sketchy coffee place nearby let alone a vending machine.

      By the time I got to my appointment my orthodontist was climbing into a taxi to head to a conference and so the hygienists saw me. Thankfully that went smoothly though my new retainer is starting to make my teeth a little sore. Then I went to breakfast or rather brunch by that time and while showing a family member my new phone she noticed it had a crack. I bought it yesterday. Needless to say I was not pleased.

      Things did cheer up this afternoon though and I found some nice new flats at Walmart because ironically an older pair of flats I own that I purchased from Walmart has lasted me longer than a pair I bought from Browns. I also had a lovely dinner with my family.

       Today was a long day and I'm super tired and looking forward to and early bedtime. Took my inhalers too cuz my asthmas all hating on me right now because I'm visiting a house with fur creatures. Ah well.
