How does one introduce a new biweekly topic that combines the reverence needed with the hope we require? Nobody wants to be depressed but we all have needs and desires. We have the Energy Exchange category but how do we keep it updated and help point people to this valuable resource?
While the Energy Exchange category is the preferred place to make requests and update requests, I’m thankful we all love and trust each other enough to be open about our needs across the site as we discuss other topics. (How many times have we made or seen requests on the Merry Meet Mondays, The Weekly Witchy Challenges, or the Group Rituals? This happens in the natural course of conversation both in the real and digital worlds and it is a testament to what the mods have built here that we can do it on Spells8.) Is there a way to combine all of those requests into one area?
These are the kinds thoughts and questions I have wrestled with in the last month. Thankfully, I have not been alone in this thought process, as some of my closest friends on Spells8 have been helping me brainstorm the best way forward. We may trip up as this gets started but the intention is to draw each other together and focus the power of the group on the needs of the individuals and their families.
Out of the questions and discussions, a wiki was created. This wiki will try to combine requests made from the entirety of the Spells8 forum. Every other week I will be drawing attention to the updated Energy Exchange requests added to the wiki. I hope this will get easier (and the posts more creative/engaging) as time goes on. I wept as I prepared this week’s post. Rest assured, I have candles running for myself and for all of my friends mentioned below.
This is going under Activities, unless a mod moves it, because I hope it will be a biweekly group activity to honor these requests.
to the first update from the Energy Exchange Circle - a wiki combining energy exchange requests made on Spells8.
For the next two weeks, please keep the following people in your collective consciousness. If you use a deity in your daily meditations , magic, etc., please remember your friends on here.
I know I may have missed some requests (I only went back about a week to get things started.) so please feel free to add them in a reply below and I will add them to the wiki. (Or you can add them to the wiki yourself. )
Kids starting new schools, I’m seeing my therapists this week

Grounding and internal guidance away from negativity
If you reply with a request and it is mentioned elsewhere on the site, please add the link in your request and we can follow it there to stay updated. This thread will be locked in two weeks and a new one will be started by me at that time.
