Wrapunzel’s Regal Wrap

One of the first wraps I ever learned was a basic, fold over, or, in Wrapunzel's case, "Regal Wrap".  It's simple and elegant in so many situations. The picture to the left is my quick put-together of a Regal Wrap using one of my heavier pashmina scarves. For this easy wrap you will need: A Shaper/Volumizer … Continue reading Wrapunzel’s Regal Wrap


Honoring Hestia: A Festival Every Day

How frustrating it can be to want to honor a Goddess, but have no definite point in time in which to praise Her and praise Her fully.  For many neo-pagans, festivals rely primarily on the Wheel Of The Year.  For those who follow and honor Hestia...things get a little tricky. As I've written of before, there … Continue reading Honoring Hestia: A Festival Every Day

Research, Explore & Experience Witchcraft Your Way

Definitely this!

The Witch & Walnut

research, explore & experience witchcraftI have to say I have been working on this post for sometime now and kept going over it again and again, trying to keep it short and to the point. This post is dedicated for new Witches that are not sure where or how to begin.

I get a lot of questions about where to begin, what do I do, how do I do it? what do I read, who do I talk too? How do I know if its right, wrong, real and genuine. Here is my answer…..

One thing I was taught from childhood from my grandmother was this…. Everyone Witches path is different, what you are meant to learn you will be taught, and the lessen will present itself to you. Its important not to force yourself to learn and accept something that does not resonate or make sense to you. After all, you are the…

Nightly Ritual Protection While You Sleep

I need to get back to my nightly rituals. Much thanks to Witch and Walnut for the spark!

The Witch & Walnut

www.thewitchandwalnut.wordpress.comWe all understand the importance of a good nights sleep and what happens to our state of mind when that doesn’t happen. Sleep is one of the times that we are most susceptible to influences from outsiders looking to manifest pretty much whatever they want.

Its possible that you can be having these influences directed towards you throughout the day, but the manifestation happens when you let your guard down, when you are asleep. We want to avoid as best as we can any type of attack during sleep, which can manifest throughout the night as nightmares, restlessness, seeing things that are not there, energy draining, feelings of dread and fear. Then continue to further manifest throughout your day…

Creating habits for your night rituals can help keep the unwanted attacks on the side lines. I’m not talking about heavy duty rituals that require extensive time, this is just basic…

Practicing Authentic Witchcraft

The Witch & Walnut

I’ve been wanting to write a post about this topic but haven’t found the right words. I still haven’t found the right words, but I was prompted by a conversation I had last night with a friend about this topic.

Staying true and authentic to your craft can be a struggle at times for various reasons. There are so many ways to practice the craft and no two ways are alike. Doesn’t make them wrong, just different from one another.

Everything you have learned on your own through countless hours, months and years of research took discipline. It got you where you are and that means something to you. You followed through for a reason, or you wouldn’t have stuck with it.

Whether you have been taught the craft from an elder or self taught, sometimes you start to get pulled in other directions. These can bring about some uncomfortable…

Money Candle Spell (gift to a friend)

It's not unusual to be approached for money spells, but just remember...like the wishes in W. W. Jacob's short story "The Monkey's Paw", wishes (spells) have direct actions.  When crafting spells, always be conscious  that what you create will have action elsewhere (sometimes for bad....sometimes for good). I'm a huge fan of making my own … Continue reading Money Candle Spell (gift to a friend)

Celery Root Witchcraft for Mind Control

Always good information from Witch and Walnut!

The Witch & Walnut

celery root & witchcraft for mind control (1)Beautiful and often forgotten celery root has been used for a very long time in our craft, most commonly used for mind control.

This is my go-to for any work related to serious mind manipulation. The size, color, shape and appearance has common physical parallels to an actual brain. This is why we love to use it. Whether it is for love, to influence thoughts and dreams, sooth a racing and worried mind, confusion, commanding, controlling and exposure.

This is an excellent way of exposing liars, gossipers and traitors by placing a spear right into it and stake it out in your garden. Or you can stake it out in their garden if you are brave enough. This is symbolic as well, much like the medieval  times when heads where place on a stake along properties as a warning and sign that traitors will be exposed and punished.

aIts prepared…
