🕚 Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE - Catch-Up!

Siofra Strega
Sounds like you have been finding the the antidote to help heal and relax witch. I am glad cause in this busy world it can be a challenge! I am trying to calm this monkey mind of mine too! Lol :monkey:

For my third challenge I am actually waiting for the New Moon since I need to make some really important decisions. I decided to do some candle magic for the challenge

I used the candle magic book by Ray Buckland for advanced candle :candle: magic :magic_wand:
I dressed my candle, and I wrote courage on it, and I anointed my oil with some olive oil. When I dressed my candle hi inscribed courage, to help me with a decision that needs to be made so what I did was placed a mirror and three pieces of paper with some choices. I wrote the pros and the cons in my Bo’s! Tonight I am going to do a meditation :woman_in_lotus_position: and contemplate :thinking: on my choices.

I really think it’s important to make wise decisions and find out what I can do and really make a conscious effort to make wise decisions! I will light my candles on the new moon and chant!

My incense smells woody and I used a pine cone which is my favorite :star_struck: I also used clove and lemon. Some essential oils were used.


This challenge is now CLOSED :exclamation:

@Jeannie1 thank you for your kind words. It’s definitely been a journey & something that I learned, albeit it took me the long way around, to be able to step back & find the best ways to heal & rest when I need to do so. You will get there. I also need to be able to stop & think to make wise or wiser decisions sometimes. I have faith that you will get there & reach your goals too!

Everyone did a great job on their entries & I’m sorry if I couldn’t respond to each one, there were so many great ones! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


I love these! I like how you pin them to your bed rather than hang them over your bed. They’re cute!

These are really beautiful stones :heart_eyes: what’s the one next to the yellow – the green one with speckles in it? I’m really drawn to that one lol

Yup! Just about everyone has used some sort of symbol like the pentagram, I believe. It’s interesting to see how a symbol that Christians once used is now demonized by the same people!

I think you did a wonderful job, Alan! :clap: Welcome to the forum and great job on your first challenge entry! :blush: I really enjoy the little ritual you have with the runes and the oil. It’s similar to something I do with my set of ogham stones. Thank you for sharing!

That makes sense :sweat_smile: thanks for sharing! I hope your cream does exactly what you need it to :blush:

I mean, do we really know exactly why we do certain things? :laughing: I for sure don’t!

I need to make use of my diffuser more :thinking: you’re inspiring me!

I think you’re absolutely right :clap: I love the spell you put together! Here’s many wishes to you for making good decisions :pray:


Oh, that’s good :hugs:, it seems to be a recurring theme :laughing: Glad I can be some help! It works for me & I really do notice a difference between when I’m using them & when I’m not using them or not using them as often.


I think the one you’re drawn to is the ruby zoisite :wink: I googled its properties for you. You get a double fix with this stone LOL
Ruby in Zoisite offers the energy of happiness, appreciation, abundance, vitality and growth . It is felt to stimulate the heart by helping one to open up to divine love. Zoisite may help to alleviate grief, anger, despair and defeat.



Soifra- Strega,
:wind_face:Honestly it’s been hard for me to step back but I wanted to share with everyone and you too of course! I am going to Oregon and traveling :luggage: 12 hours away from home :house_with_garden:
So I am excited :laughing: I just got a rental car :blue_car: and I am out on a adventure! We’re going to see the a beautiful scenery and landscape.

:lotus:I will be able to give more to you all because I am taking better care of my priorities! It’s been a long time since me and my husband got a break! So I willing send you a pic when we get there!
I am so glad you’re getting the quality rest that your body needs to heal! I am sending you some magic :magic_wand: to help you recover and its a warm hug :people_hugging: from your witchy friend on the forum! :rainbow: I need to do my meditation bye for know! :apple:


Since quoting your whole entry @Jeannie1 would be a bit overkill :laughing: I just wanted to say thank you & I really appreciate the continued love & healing support each day!

I’m very happy for you & your husband to be able to take a break together & that you are taking better care of your priorities. I have been doing or at least trying my best to do the same. It’s been a tough thing for me to learn that if something doesn’t get done, it’s ultimately okay. I am one person & can only do so much. Especially during healing & making sure that I get myself taken care of also.

I hope you have a safe trip :oncoming_automobile: & get to enjoy the time together with the beautiful scenery :sunrise_over_mountains: & landscape! I’ve heard that there are some amazing places to go & enjoy this time of year. Have a great time & stay safe, I will keep you in my thoughts & daily healing… if you don’t mind, I would love to add you to my healing & support book that I have for distance support. :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


I just can’t use my diffuser when my mom is home because she’s allergic to most essential oils :laughing: I’ve got one in my room but I don’t really spend a lot of time in there during the day. I’ll figure out a time to use it though!

Omg :joy: That definitely sounds like something I could use in my daily life :laughing: I wonder if I can find some here close to me :thinking: I’ll have to keep an eye out for it the next time I go to my local store!


Its a pretty common stone but if you can’t find one local Cold Brew Crystals on Etsy might have some. She has a sale going on right now. I know there are some members that have stores too :wink: But you know that! :grinning:
