Challenge Entry #3

Heed the Call of Crystals

This entry was completely unplanned. My crystals were calling me this morning. I had ordered some crystal confetti a few months ago and have been meaning to look the crystals up that were included, but I never got around to it. With the crystal confetti there are alot of crystal chips, but there are also regular size crystals. I looked up the crystals with an app called Rock Identifier.

The first confetti group is Third Eye and these are the crystals: (I keep these on the nightstand by my bed for prophetic dreaming).
• Fluorite
• Bornite
• Rainbow Hematitie
• Aura Quartz
I put the chips in small bottle and labeled them.

The second confetti group is Abundance. (I keep these on my Lakshmi Altar).
• Green Jasper
• Citrine
• Aura Quartz
• Opalite

The third confetti group is either Fairy Garden or Midnight Garden, I can’t remember which and I didn’t put the tag with it thinking I would remember. I purchase both, but missing one. Hmmm, they may be in the garden out back. Anyway, these are the crystals:
• Clear Quartz
• Black Tourmaline
• Blood stone
• Tigers eye
• Sodalite
• Goldstone
• Black Agate
• Hematite
• Larvikite
• Falcons eye (a type of tigers eye)
• Pyrite
• Rainbow Moonstone


Thank-you @BryWisteria for opening this up! I am learning so much from everyone’s entries! :snowflake:

This is sooo close to home for me! I inherited my Grandma’s button boxes -we used to spend hours stringing them and unstringing them on rainy days -I 100% will now choose from them for different witchy purposes -they are so imbued with generations of childhood memories!

I have to wonder if in some ways this type of intuitive work is actually MORE powerful than other ways of working -but so difficult to do without the right energy -and helper!

I love the images of these skulls in the rain -so beautiful!

Omg! What a great idea! I am going to check out @silverbear’s instructions and do this.

I love your beautiful wand -I had one that didn’t feel natural to me that I made, so I have also been using my finger -glad I am not alone there :grinning:

Same! I enjoyed learning about these -thank-you!

I have this problem as well -I attended a guided past life regression session at my local witchy store, and found it far easier in that setting. I had some similar experiences to you -I learned most of my past lives involved running for my life.



Loki is the best helper you can get. My chaos magic has come alive since I’ve started working with him. You don’t have to take him as your deity, but I’m sure if you asked him to help he would. He’s not nearly as scary as some say, just be prepared for the unexpected that’s all. :rofl::flushed::sparkling_heart: Oh and as a thankyou, he likes good coffee and whiskey/brandy. :grin:


Everyone’s entries have been absolutely fabulous! I’ve learnt, seen so much. It’s been awe inspiring. Thankyou my lovelies. :sparkling_heart::partying_face:


I agree. I love looking at everyone’s entries! :heart:


Thank you so much @Ostara :blush: I really like that pillar candle too that specific one actually bleeds I’ll be showing everyone on Samhain :jack_o_lantern::sparkles:


Thank you @ArcticCharm :sparkling_heart: i really enjoyed that ritual :skull:


Weekly Witchy Challenge - Sounds of Magick - ENTRY

Sounds and Magick are a very interesting topic to me as of late but… as a little girl I would hear different sounds that I should not be able to hear. For example, when I was about 4 years old, I would hear voices in fans. The fan in my bedroom window, the car, in a store and so on. I could never hear enough to understand what was being said. This, at the age of 60, still happens to me. An apartment I was living in, I would constantly hear someone, or something call my name. In the same place, I saw a Jin at the end of my bed. At a different place I lived I would hear music/party no one was there but me. This house was built in the late 1800’s and was creepy. It has servant’s quarters with a back stairway. My room was off those stairs. I heard footsteps in the room next to me, so I called my husband (almost) to come over but of course the footsteps stopped. The next night was a whole different story. He heard them too and called everyone home (5 of us). Every night we would have a house alert. This was a search from attic to basement with fully automatic weapons. They could not comprehend ghosts or demons (I think they might have been Demons themselves). Anyway, sounds with witchcraft sounded like a fascinating topic to me. I started researching and this is what I found:
"Everything, every single thing in this universe vibrates at a certain frequency, from every atom in every blade of grass on Earth through to every planet and star in the sky. It’s all formed and maintained by electromagnetic energy. This is the very same energy we seek to tap into for Crafting. Even words themselves have frequencies when spoken, as do herbs, foods, spices, colors, candles, cards, etc. etc. etc. In my opinion, the best way to raise your vibration is via entrainment. This is the energy work I’m doing with frequency healing. By use of crystal singing bowls, Solfeggio tuning forks, and Solfeggio frequencies through headphones, I’ve managed to heal not only my body, but also my mind and my ethereal other self. And my power has increased. "

Hanging a bell by your front door helps raise vibrations through sound. This simple spell will help to keep negativity and spirits that mean you harm, away from your home and family. The following incantation will help activate or enchant your bells:

    1. “Guard our Home, Bell on the Door, let Evil Spirits come no More.
    1. Evil Spells shall Not be Cast, and Good Fortune shall Ever Last.
    1. So Mote it Be!”

Witches love to hang little bells from their doorknobs to scare away unwanted spirits. You can hang three little bells from your doorknob and chanting the following spell three times: (Spells8, Francisco Huanaco, August 18, 2023)

“Guard my Home, Bells on the Door, Let Only Blessings walk on this Floor,
Block all Evil and the Dark Arts, May only Good Approach our Hearts.”

What is the Meaning of Breaking a Plate?
Breaking a plate is considered to bring good luck or ward off evil spirits. It’s believed that the act of shattering something symbolizes the breaking of negative energy or bad luck in your life. The negative energy is believed to be released by shattering something, and then the positive energy can flow in. So, if you find yourself accidentally smashing a plate, take it as a sign that things are about to turn around for the better! (Spells8, Huanaco, August 18, 2023)
The term “sounds magical” can have different meanings. In the context of the Japanese word “Kotodama”, it refers to the belief that sounds can magically affect objects, and that ritual word usages can influence our environment, body, mind, and soul. English translations of “Kotodama” include “soul of language”, “spirit of language”, “power of language”, “power word”, “magic word”, and “sacred sound”. In another context, “sounds magical” can refer to something that has seemingly supernatural qualities or powers. (2023, April 28 Kotodama. In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia.)
I would have never thought there was so many ways to use sounds with WitchCraft, Spells, Potions, and etc… In this entry, I have only touch a small potion of ways to use Sounds with Magick, here are some examples of Ambient Music to invoke at your next ritual: (Otherworldly Oracle, January 26, 2019)
⦁ Celtic flutes
⦁ Native American flutes
⦁ Shamanic drumming
⦁ Tibetan singing bowls
⦁ Harp
⦁ Gregorian chants
⦁ Chakra tones

Here is my second challenge entry.

Sleep & Dream Magick

For this challenge, I prepared my bedside table with specific items to enhance my sleep experience. I place my velvet eclipse cloth, a good dreams pillow, and another pillow for helping to ensure I dream about things I need to see.

I also have a collection of various stones here: amethyst, rainbow moonstone, selenite, apophyllite, jet, smoky quartz, clear quartz, black obsidian, and lapis lazuli.

One stone that stands out is apophyllite, which I have only a few of due to its cost. This stone holds interesting properties as it fosters deeper spiritual connections. It aids in linking with spirit guides, boosting intuition, and sharpening the senses for a clearer perception.

Also, I often come across cat’s whiskers since I have two cats. These can help me remain undetected during various types of journeys, whether travelling between realms or similar experiences. They essentially work as an invisibility cloak, keeping me hidden from others. Moreover, they contribute to enhancing astral and psychic activities. So I’ve put one from each cat in each pillow.

Afterwards, I prepared a cup of jasmine tea because jasmine tea is known to offer assistance in multiple areas. It aids in divination, promoting better sleep, triggering prophetic dreams, and stimulating creative and innovative thoughts. That sounds perfect for this, right?

I enjoyed my jasmine tea while taking a soothing bath with a homemade salt soak mix. This blend was a creation I threw together for this purpose, and it included jasmine, rose, and lavender, combined with Epsom salt, Himalayan salt, and magnesium flakes.

I carefully adjusted the bathwater to just slightly above body temperature, creating a slight sensation of floating as I soaked in it. While relaxing in the bath, I tuned in to some meditation music, predominantly featuring ocean sounds and similar soothing elements.

After a while, I eventually fell asleep, and my dreams were so numerous that attempting to recount them all would be an overwhelming task. Typically, my dreams are marked by their vividness, length, and intricate details, and this time was no different.

In one of the dreams, I found myself answering a phone call from a goddess. In a separate dream, I was inside my great-grandparents’ home, eagerly awaiting dinner only for my family to eat without me. Another dream depicted a world engulfed in coal and embers, and the resilient communities that arose from the ashes to rebuild. Yet another dream had me fleeing from an enraged man driving a UTE, while frustratingly, the people I encountered along the way remained passive observers.

I also stored the surplus bath salt soak mixture in these cute little jars for future use.

P.S. Sorry if it’s weird that I go into detail for what might seem like basic information that many are already familiar with. I have a tendency to explain things as if someone who may require additional information and context might come along. It also serves as a way to convey my thought process, so if I happen to make any incorrect assumptions, someone can step in and correct me, as this has been a valuable way for me to learn and grow.


And finally, here is my third challenge entry.

Strength of the Full Moon

These span the length of the full moon, encompassing the days before and after. I didn’t have a predetermined plan; instead, I followed my instincts and did what felt most natural in the moment. I kept the full moon in mind, drawing upon its heightened energies to guide my activities during this period of lunar influence.


I channelled my creative energy into drawing without overthinking it. At the time, I didn’t have a specific plan, but in retrospect, I believe my drawing depicted me actively dispelling various challenges from my life. This included the fear of being seen as crazy by those close to me, as well as letting go of grudges, dispelling self-deception, and addressing lingering unhealthy relationships.


I composed a sort of prayer addressed to Selene.

Oh, divine goddess shrouded in darkness,
Maternal creator of immortal essence,
Craft me anew, a rebirth from your touch,
As my light yearns to consume your very being,
Carve out a sacred space for the tapestry of shadows,
An immortal soul birthed from the cosmic womb,
Nestled within your embrace, cradled like cherished offspring,
To you, the sibling of cosmic forces, you are summoned,
O luminous moonlight, casting your ethereal glow,
Grant me the gift of rebirth, a metamorphosis of spirit,
With darkness as my compass, guiding and unveiling,
I shall traverse the journey of renewal, emerging afresh.


I also conducted a tarot card reading. Since I acquired this deck back in mid-February, I’ve noticed that I frequently draw Cups and Rings, even though I select them by intuition, pulling them from wherever feels most appropriate after shuffling.

Ace of Cups

This card serves as a symbol of romantic longing, yearning, the pursuit of love, the excitement of new beginnings, and the blossoming of fresh love. The abundance of pomegranate seeds and blossoms mirrors my recent experiences in my relationship with my partner. I’ve witnessed further improvements, particularly since I rearranged my desk, allowing us to sit closer throughout the day and easily keep track of each other’s activities with a simple turn of our heads.

Speaking of new beginnings, it appears that we’ll finally be moving into our new apartment in the next couple of months. We’ve been patiently waiting for the construction and renovation work to be completed, and it’s exciting to see this long-awaited change on the horizon.

Two of Cups

This card delves into the theme of partnership and the tangible presence of romantic energy. It showcases lovers eagerly embracing new relationships and opportunities, as well as discovering ways to keep existing love vibrant and enduring. The figures in the card gaze at each other with an enchanting allure, mirroring the ongoing benefits of our newfound closeness. It’s heartening to see that my partner is becoming even more excited about the impending move than I amn.

Four of Wands

This card symbolises the essence of home, celebrating joy and harmony, much like the chrysanthemum flower. It serves as a reminder to relish the moments spent with our loved ones and to create a sense of order and comfort within our homes. It’s quite fitting for the circumstances, I must say.

Woohoo! Time to bust out some challenges!

Challenge Entry One: :eye: Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE - Visualizations

I decided to do this a sort of different way! I’ve been working on my Inner Temple, and rather than describe it, I decided to create it in The Sims 4 and show you all! Granted, it isn’t exactly how I have it in my mind because The Sims 4 can only do so much, but it’s pretty spot on! Here are some screenshots.

It’s pretty much a circle of oak trees, a stone altar with candles, a pond, etc. all in the middle of the forest. That’s exactly how I have it in my mind sometimes. Seeing it in the game helps me visualize it better and bring it to life!

Challenge Entry Two: :ear: Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE - The Magick of Sound

I don’t use sound during my spellwork (usually) but I do use sound, music especially, during my cleansing rituals or throughout the day. Sound has always been a coping mechanism for me, especially when things get loud or overwhelming (in both a physical and emotional sense). One of my favorite songs to cleanse to is actually Castle of Glass by Linkin Park :sweat_smile:

Especially these lyrics right here.

Take me down to the river bend
Take me down to the fighting end
Wash the poison from off my skin
Show me how to be whole again
Fly me up on a silver wing
Past the black where the sirens sing
Warm me up in a nova’s glow
And drop me down to the dream below

I use a lot of modern music for things like this. It’s just what fits - plus, it really helps when I can sing along and feel the emotion and energy behind the song.

Challenge Entry Three: :purse: Weekly Witchy CHALLENGE - Making Objects Magickal

For my last challenge, I wanted to show you a design I just finished for my shop. It’s a pentacle wall decoration on an 8-inch hoop! It’s the first time I’ve ever added beads to my work, but it’s also a new venture for me because of crocheting around the hoop. I’ve done some things like this recently, but I’m finding such a love for crocheting on these hoops and having the ability to hang them on the wall!

This one is up in my shop, but I’m going to make another one for our house and imbue it with protective energies. I might make it black… but I was also thinking of getting some rainbow yarn to have more color!


Your inner temple is incredible @MeganB the visuals are amazing you did a really good job it’s serenity in every way. :crystal_ball::sparkles: the Sims is such a cool way to bring the imagination to life.
I love your magick of sound entry every full moon i get in my car around 5:30am and I chase it to get a better look while listening to
Love you down by Inoj

Do you remember this song from the 90s ? I pull energy from this song and like you said it just fits. I really enjoyed all three of your entry’s I felt like I could relate to them and your pentacle crochet is really cool your really good at crocheting I really like your hats. :infinite_roots: :purple_heart:


I mainly work with the main Pantheon, Ra, Isis, Osiris, Set, Hathor and Bast. I am also starting my knowledge journey into the many other gods/goddesses as well. Ra has been coming through strong for me lately.


EDIT: I didn’t see it the first time I checked my badges but I thought I might have done this one, just scrolled the challenge and yes I did :woman_facepalming:t2: I’ll just leave this as rambling :laughing:

The Chakras

So perfect, Chakras are one of the things I’ve been working on over the past few months.

I started with research, lots of research, printed posters and lists and started working on learning the associations before buying crystals for a dedicated Chakra set.

Studying hasn’t really been a thing over the past month but I got pushed in a little while Birthday shopping for my oldest son. He’s impossible to shop for and I was so frustrated but then I remembered that a year or so ago he mention being interested in learning.

So shopping and diving into my research I went. I bought him a nice basic set of crystals and got a great deal on a beautiful Satin Spar charging plate and an amazing deal on a like new copy of “Chakra Healing: A Beginner’s Guide to Self-Healing Techniques that Balance the Chakras” by Margarita Alcantara and I’ll probably print him a copy of one of the posters.

It wasn’t planned studying but I soaked up a little during the project


All three of your entries are awesome. The very first one with your screenshots for some reason just resonates with me! I just keep looking at them it’s something about them I can’t even explain it truly I can’t explain it. Well I have to put that on another mission I’ll need to try to figure out LOL… Great job!
Blessed Be,
