    The Sacred Spoon

    Chakra Balancing Meals Sacral Chakra Healing carrot soup The sacral chakra is one of creativity, emotion, and connecting with others. When this chakra gets blocked you can experience a lack of creativity and confidence, as well as difficulty forming meaningful relationships with others. In families this can be difficult to deal with. On the other hand if your sacral chakra is overactive you can still experience creativity but have no outlet for this creativity. For a long time I didn’t write or learn many new skills. After much thought and retrospect I realized that it all boiled down to self doubt. I didn’t do things because I assumed I would…

    WitchCrafting: Crafts for Witches

    Crafts for Witches: Black Salt     Merry meet. Witches use black salt to absorb unfavorable energies, boost protection spells and guard against negativity. It is also used in cleansing, healing and banishing, making and breaking hexes, and casting powerful circles. I consider its energy somewhat stronger and different than that of white or pink salt. While you can buy it, it is better if you make your own. Most recipes for black salt are very much the same, and all will draw off negative energy and provide protection.     You’ll want a mortar and pestle in which you will grind together your ingredients. I used a small cast…

    Hekate Doll Transformation

    So my one friend loves Hekate & I decided to make her a gift that she would love. I make custom dolls, but for some reason had never made a god or goddess, just creepy random dolls. But, I was up for the challenge. I used three different dolls to make up this one. I took the head from a snarky looking Barbie, the body of a Monster High doll that was missing her hands and then hands from a different Barbie.     The first things I had to do was strip the doll doll down to it’s core. I removed the face with acetone and cut the hair…

    Air-Dry Clay     Merry meet. If you prefer to make tools, charms, altar decorations and gifts, clay could be all you need. In this case, it was block of the air-drying variety. Purchased at a tag sale years ago, one corner of the plastic had split open, drying some of the clay. Placing the block in an airtight container and adding some water restored it. A ziplock plastic bag also works.     Air-dry clay is soft and pliable. Kneed it a few times and it’s ready to be rolled, shaped, pressed into molds and sculpted. The clay will begin to dry as soon as exposed to air, so to…

    The Sacred Spoon

    Balancing Meals – Root Chakra   I have been called a kitchen witch by many and never truly understood what the term meant until it was explained to me, somewhat recently, as a witch who put all of their loving and healing energy into their food, and love to feed others with these caring energies. That just about hit the nail on the head. I love being in my kitchen making tinctures, salves, teas, and potions; I enjoy putting all of my loving and healing energy into them to help others heal. And I LOVE to cook. So of course I love creating good, healing food for those I care…

    Directional Stones     Merry meet. At a pagan event perhaps a decade ago, I made a set of stones to mark the five essential directions. For almost that long, they followed me from desk to desk and no one ever questioned or commented on them. I recently made another set to give away.     All it takes are a selection of rocks, and paint pens or permanent markers. Rather than these pictures, you could use alchemy symbols, your own stylized design or even astrological signs.     The five essential elements exist in all of nature, including our bodies and personalities. By being aware of the energies earth,…

    WitchCrafting: Crafts for Witches – Travel Shrine     Merry meet. Decades ago, while studying the Kabbala, I made a personal connection to Archangel Raphael. Recently, synchronicity brought him to my attention repeatedly until I got the hint and began calling on him again. We often meet in the same place we once did. Now I realize the old stone cottage on the side of a mountain, deep in the forest is that of a hedge witch – me – and he is helping me to heal myself and others as he watches over my travels.   To honor him I wanted to make a small shrine that had a…
