I finished off this week with a purple candle spell for anxiety.

I stopped taking my antidepressants a few days ago and expected some withdrawal, but it hit me a little like a freight train tonight.

I needed to feel I was in control rather than my wonky brain wiring, and the spell has helped with that. Now breathing through it and more relaxed.

Aw lovely I feel you :heart: about 8 years ago now I was prescribed antidepressants and I took them for about a year an a half and they did help but I also felt like i had fog in my brain, like part of me had been switched off (not that I don’t think they help people because they do and everyone is different) long story short I came off them and it wasn’t the nicest experience IV ever had :heart: but get plenty of vitamins and minerals and look into some herbal remedies, I take passion flower and lavender capsules (just organic dried flowers in a capsule) and that has really helped me. But make sure your not allergic to any of them and that they won’t interfere with any other medicines you might take :heart::heart: and I don’t take the high dose ones either since you can get a proper dosage guide with herbal remedies :heart: I hope you feel better soon we are all here if you need us :heart:

Thank you.

I’ve taken the same antidepressants on 3 different occasions now, this time for a few months, and I’d completely forgotten about how bad withdrawal can be.

I’ve been fine the last few days, I stopped taking them in the middle of last week, but today I just woke up tired and it didn’t get much better. And I just felt a complete, I don’t know apathy this evening. Both restless and unable to focus.

But I’m calmer now and I know it’ll all be fine.

I call it the void :heart: when you feel nothing but everything all at once and you feel disconnected from it all. It will level out though and you will feel better :heart: our brains are amazing and strange all at the same time aren’t they :heart:

The void, I “like” that, perfect description.

I’m sorry you’re feeling anxious, that sucks. Changing meds is always difficult. Glad this purple candle spell helped you!

My entry for this week is going to be disappointingly short (for me, at least) this week because I’m still working, and I’m just taking a quick break to share what I’ve done this week.

First and foremost, I’ve been trying to branch out to candles in colors other than white. I usually just use white tealights because they’re cheap, readily-available, and serve an infinite number of purposes based on what intentions I charge them with before I light them. However, I decided to experiment with using a black candle when I do my devotions to Hekate.

Since today was the first day of Vestalia, and Hestia is another deitiy I work with, I decided to dedicate a green seven-day candle to her and have it burning for her all day. (Other than when I was away from the room – always practice fire safety!) As I mentioned in a previous post in this thread, I found a coloring book, so I used one of the pages that spoke to me the most as an offering of sorts to place Hestia’s canle on – again, practicing fire safety!

The Hestia devotional suggests a purple candle, but I didn’t have a purple candle. Also, I personally associate Hestia with the color green for multiple reasons, one of which is because, to me, Hestia has a lot to do with the Love within a home/community, and green is asociated with the Heart Chakra.

I’ve been getting the really strong feeling that Hecate is enjoying her black candles and that Hestia is really liking her green one along with the colored-in mandala.

I’m looking forward to experimenting with color more in the future! :smiley:

Beautiful job with your chakra work, @sarah29! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Thank you so much for sharing the resources as well as your new experiences- it sounds like chakra work is proving to be very beneficial for you, congrats on the discoveries! :raised_hands: I’ll be looking into more Solar Plexus and Sacral chakra work too- there’s so much benefit to be found in chakra work- and I’m loving the idea of using color magick in makeup, you’re onto something wonderful! :orange_heart: :yellow_heart: :blush:

It takes time!!! I’d recommend doing more research on it. It really does take a lot of time and a lot of practice and not giving up!!

It does take time @IrisW. Currently my doctor and I are tapering me off of a couple things because if I just stop taking them, it’s just not a good time. Plus I have other medical conditions that don’t react well to sudden changes. Meditation & being gentle with yourself will go a long way. You will get there & be better than new!
