First of all, welcome to a place where you’ll always be accepted! Sorry for the pain that you’ve endured!!! I’ve been there a couple times. But I’m glad you’re here and I do suggest starting out with the initiation courses because it teaches you all that you need to know!

Take it from there! I love the tea meditation rituals every Thursday. Here’s the link to this past weeks tea time:

Hope to see you around!
Blessed be :pray:

Thank you so much for your welcome. I have started the initiation course and it is fantastic.
I did read the post that you made What to do when you wanna work with crystals but you haven't an idea that was brilliant.
Thank you for sharing all that information. I have had an interest in working with crystals for a couple of years now. There is still so much that I can learn and it is so exciting.

I could help teach you because I have a ton of binders with notes from school and lifetime access to the info. It’s awesome!! So, any questions please, please ask!!!

Welcome with Love Jessica. Australia! I’m not sure how to ask this, but, the Aborigines are strong with magic, is there any reading material on the subject? OK, that’s my curiosity.
Jessica, many of us have, or are involved in toxic relationships and unfortunately many others came here sad, angry, depressed.
My relationship was my fault, I enabled his behavior. I kept forgiving him instead saying enough, straighten up or leave.
There are many here who will listen with no judgement or condes-cension. Let us be your safe place, you won’t be sorry. I’ll say that when I joined I was just counting down until I died. These wonderful people gave me a new lease on life. Starting at the beginning with you spells and the knowledge offered.
Be safe, be blessed and know you be loved.

I would be so grateful. I am so new and just hope to soak up everything like (preferably) a sparkly little sponge :blush: I adore crystals and just can’t seem to get enough of them. Just a little bit obessed. As soon as I have bought one I am already planning my next fix. Haha.

Thank you so much for such a beautiful welcome. I too enabled his behaviour for too long and hoped that my love for him would be enough but ultimately he has chosen another so as hard as it is and the temtation to run back to him is so strong. I am fighting through it every day reminding myself of what he has done and what I allowed to happen. He was my first love and I paid a high price for my devotion and loyalty. But I am slowly getting used to my new freedom in all it’s capacities.

To answer your question. Yes you are very right. The first nation peoples of Australia have many ancient wisdoms and magics and revere the earth and utilise her gifts. They have very similar beliefs to Wicca and follow they’re own seasons.

As far as I am aware and and quite possibly in my own ignorance they keep thier traditions within thier own culture and people. But I’m sure that there is material out there.

Sounds like great project to begin some research.

I’m Siofra from Cape Cod, I don’t think that we have officially met. I am from Cape Cod & an Eclectic Witch. Everyone here is very supportive & helpful. Feel free to ask any questions as they arise & someone will gladly get back to you & at the very least point you in the right direction. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

I love all of my crystal babies. I go through phases of obsession. :joy: I was just arranging some of them yesterday. I can’t wait to get them under the full moon this month with my tarot/divination tools & oils. I’m very excited about this one. It’s been a while since I have participated in the Full Moon.

Lovely to meet you :blush: I really am keen to work with the moon in my practice. I have been obsessed with rainbow moonstone for a couple of years (not sure exactly as to why) and things just have seemed to have gradually evolved from there. I’m counting down the days to the full moon too. Everybody could do with a decent charge night I think :blush:

Thank you for your welcome. I really am looking forward to starting out and finding that there really is something better and more beautiful out there :purple_heart:

I always thought the best time to charge your crystals is said to be a ‘New Moon’ not so much a Full Moon.

The Full Moon is best used for ‘cleansing’ your crystals - or maybe it does both at once for you?

At least, that’s my understanding of it.
