I am always quite cautious when I do spellwork. I rarely do it for myself (though I really should be a little more selfish in that way). But what do you do when things go wrong and you wish to reverse your spell? Here's some good advice on how to do it (but...the smartest thing … Continue reading How To Reverse A Spell When Everything Goes Wrong
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…

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)
Always good information from Witch and Walnut!
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.

As a small handful of you know, I’ve decided to resurrect a ancient blog if mine. It totally needs an overhaul because it was my “baby blog”, so I’m in the middle of that. However, I came across a post from way way back that had me laughing all over again.
I give you….Adventures in my household….
There’s never a dull moment in my household. Really.
Just yesterday I spent some quality time with my husband. This never happens. Ever. His work schedule is so jam packed that he does work 60 hours a week…on a “light” week. So when we actually had a Sunday to spend together, I jumped on it.
We didn’t do much – took a drive on some of the lesser-known highways to see the countryside of TX – since we hadn’t had an opportunity to do that. We took the fluffy Tribble dog with us because he loves to travel. We wandered down towards Bastrop, TX and saw some beautiful ranch country.
On the way back, we decided to make a fire in the fire pit when we got him. Nothing thrilling, right? Grab some hot dogs, stuff to make S’mores…and firewood, since we hadn’t had the opportunity to put aside firewood…

While Hestia is the focal point of my household, I have been known to cultivate relationships with others, as needed. Because we are preparing to move back to WA (which is scary because....right now we have no place to live or jobs!), I have been set on monetary economy. Over the past summer I began … Continue reading Prayer to Hestia – Home Economy
Lots of knowledge from the Witch and Walnut…and today is no exception!
I often get asked about simple spiritual washes without all the hooplah. This one is very basic, in-fact… a lot of my blends are made with these core ingredients, then I layer other ingredients to customize. This is so easy, very fragrant, cleansing, soothing and perfect to calm your nerves and put you back together again.
I got a knock on my door this evening and my neighbor has herbs in hand and a rock… lol… she asked if I could cook up some bath wash for her. She has the recipe and I’ve shown her how to make it, and somehow she says she prefers the way it smells when I make it. Go figure! I have the ingredients on hand, but she brought hers all except for the horseradish I decided to add for her. I don’t use measured amounts, I just eye it.
I made us some…

This is something we’re all guilty of at some time or another. Time to set self-sabotage aside!
By Dr. Perry, PhD
“I am the greatest obstacle to my greatest dreams.” ~Craig D. Lounsbrough
The subconscious mind is like an overgrown hedge maze. We enter it thinking we can quickly get through to the other side only to realize we are lost somewhere in the middle. How often do you set out to accomplish a task only to start ruminating about something that went wrong in your life? Lost in thought we forget that we set a goal to traverse the maze and get through to the other side.
Replaying a past failure is only one of the many ways we can sabotage ourselves from accomplishing our goals and pursuing our dreams. Procrastination perhaps is the number one killer of dreams. We divert the energy we need to accomplish a needed goal towards watching more television or spending more time on social media. Some even go as far as…

I adore just about everything written by Jason Mankey. He's insightful. He's rather direct. And he tends to hit the nail right on the head.

No surprise! Witch and Walnut is still one of my favorite blogs, and this post about Home Cleansing.
Hello everyone, sorry for the lack of posts we have had some unseasonably warm weather and I have been taking advantage of it. Before the next snow storm hits of course.
We have started doing some refreshing in parts of the house, little cracks here, little cracks there, knicks, bumps, dents and gaps in the trim work from the varying temps all that fun stuff. Easy stuff to do, but more tolerable when the sun is shining, birds are singing and you can crack open the windows a bit.
Every time I do work like this in the house, not only am I feeding the soul of the home by showing it love and respect, but I follow up with a spiritual cleansing and blessing. I also do this outside on my property when I have done a big clean up, kicked up a lot of earth, trimmed things, pulled…
