Good Monday morning from the merry old land of Aus everyone!
May I please submit entries for 3 catch up challenges:
Challenge Entry #1
All About Altars - Reverent Witch
Seeing as I celebrated my one year anniversary being a practicing witch last month I thought that I would share my new altar. I have upgraded to some more space by taking over the unused computer desk in the spare room. So, no more mini altar in my bedroom. I have my big girl pants on now.
Before: Baby witch in 2021
Now: Big girl witch in 2022
Something else I learnt about “altars” is that in the crystal world a collection or a display of crystals can be considered to be an altar if you have placed those crystals together with a specific intention.
My crystal altars can include…
My collection of Amethysts for peace where I keep the ashes of my boys Denzel and Miles. Specifically, Amethyst angels. Also with the intention to help me sleep.
Rhodonite, Rhodochrosite, Rose Quartz, Pink Amethyst, Clear Quartz, Rose Calcite and Selenite for heart healing and self-love.
Smoky Quartz, Obsidian, Black Tourmaline and Clear Quartz for grounding and protection.
Selenite, Citrine, Pyrite, Green Jade and Clear Quartz for abundance and luck. (Still on the to buy list is a Tiger’s Eye and Green Aventurine sphere). Soon, my pretties, soon.
Super 7 sphere and cluster, Smoky Amethyst and Amethyst spheres, with Diamond Quartz and Spirit Quartz for just general awesomeness and prettiness.
Selenite, Aquamarine, Caribbean Calcite, Azumar, Larimar and crystal jar for ocean energy. This explains the whole ocean crystal jar thing that I came up with… Ocean Crystal Jar
Challenge Entry #2
Inviting Abundance - Blessed by Abundance
Last weekend I did a little abundance burn. I added some cinnamon powder and some dried basil as well as a wish on a bay leaf. I wrote out my manifestations and wrote my letter to universe with what I am grateful for that I already have and what I would like some help with. I added some of the crystals that I mentioned in last week’s challenge Tactical Magick – Magickal Strategist for success; some Tiger’s Eye, Citrine and Green Aventurine crystal chips and some Clear Quartz for amplification. And then I set the paper on fire and just let it burn. It was actually a really good and constant burn. It just burnt away to nothing. I didn’t have to re-light anything - yay. Then I buried the entire contents of the cauldron - returning the crystals to the earth.
I am always conscious of fire safety and only burn in my cauldron and I will only burn things like that outside.
Now I just trust that the universe has my back and it will help me out in the way that it knows is best for me. It may not be what I want but it will be what I need, thank you universe x.
Challenge Entry #3
Trying Something New - Experimenter
On Friday night I went back again to Crystal and Stone (officially my favourite place) and did another workshop. This one was on… working with Crystal Skulls… ooooo. Fun, fun, fun… crystals and skulls and more crystals oh my!
Where you chose to sit determined which crystal skull you got to take home (they were wrapped in tissue paper so you couldn’t see what you were picking). I was the first one there so I had my pick so seats and my little crystal skull buddy is a Green Aventurine skull.
Crystal skulls are said to be keepers of ancient knowledge and can assist us in our journey once we learn to communicate with them. They have their own unique personalities that don’t necessarily correspond to the crystal that they have been carved from.
