Oh thank you! It feels good to be back in the swing of the challenges, next week I will do the tea. This week I have surgery on Thursday, I don’t know how I’ll be when I get home afterwards. I’ll check in on Friday though.

I’m glad everyone like my spell that I wrote! Thank you so much.

Intention – To remember my mother in law who died Sep 24th on my birthday

My hopes are to carry on her dreams of me and my husband doing well and being healthy. She would have wanted us to be completely drug free. I want to carry that on to my children.

God to Invoke is Hecate- The Goddess of magic necromancy and the haunting of ghosts of dead. She issued forth from the underworld with a train of torch-bearing Lampades, demonic Lamiae and hellhounds. Hecate was the minister of Persephone.

Hermes- The Guide of the dead who led the ghosts to their final resting place in Hades.

Thanks Tamera, I just figured for Sawhain, I would incorporate this spell because it is a good practice to honor the dead and bless theme. I think I could have explained better but ill do better next time. Thanks for liking my post. I am trying to work on my shadow side. Appreciate your light extended in love, thanks! I had fun over all and that is what’s important.

Francisco, thanks for your kuddos, I am very happy, I did it!!! I was a little nervous being that it was my first spell ever did. I don’t have much practice, but I just have to give it some time and I will grow!!! This is why it was called a challenge. I think its exciting that I am participating like you said. I put in the effort too bettering my life spiritually, mentally and therefore physically. You and the coven help me. Thanks to everyone!!
Thanks to the Travel Witch for helping me grow, and thanks to all your love and support, I was able to believe in myself. I am happy with myself internally!

Welcome back, @krissie117! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Sending you good thoughts for your surgery on Thursday- please check in and let us know how it goes after you’ve had some time to rest and recover! :pray: And congrats again on the challenge- your jar spell was truly lovely :two_hearts:

This is a beautiful intention and a truly emotional spell, Val! I can tell you poured your heart and soul into this. You did a wonderful job- thank you so much for sharing :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

As I mentioned in the PM, since this was your very first challenge and it was shared just a bit behind the deadline (and I know time zone differences can be pretty confusing!) a few hours late can be forgiven. Well done and enjoy your new title! :clap: :blush:

I’m so happy you enjoyed the challenge- and props again for doing such a fantastic job with your first spell, @Tamera! :two_hearts: You really rose to the challenge and spread your wings. I’m proud of you! :blush:

You are very welcome, Francisco! I agree- this one was quite the challenge. Reading everyone’s spellwork was a delight- there are so many very talented and creative people here! :sparkles:

Consecrations are a fantastic place to start- and you wrote an amazing incantation, @walter! Congrats again to you- and yes! Now the ball is rolling. I hope you continue to craft such lovely spells in the future :blush:

I’m looking forward to trying the next weekly challenge. I find out what time my surgery is today after my Covid test. I have that at 7:30 AM today then I’ll get the phone call about what time to be there tomorrow. I’m happy that it’s a day surgery and I can go home the same day. I’ll probably pop on either later tomorrow or on Friday after I’ve had time to rest at home. I know from the past that this surgery takes a lot out of me and there are so many limitations when you can’t drive, walk, or sit up straight.

Thank you so much! It will go smoothly and I will be home before I know it. The waiting is the hard part. Especially when you are up way too early!
