My crafts : new book of shadows and new scrying mirrors

Posted in book of shadows, Haunted items, mirrors, my handmade crafts, pagan and wiccan, scrying, wiccan clothes and items, witches on May 21, 2017 by Psychic eevee

I know I said I wouldn’t be posting my homemade crafts on here anymore as I am running out of space but I will post the occasional thing that is to do with my work.

My old book of shadows is full up and falling to pieces so I made a new one.

A book of shadows is what a Pagan/Wiccan/Witch writes what they have learnt in and any spells they have performed etc.

I found a huge fabric binder that has a nice section on one side with a filing compartment ,which will be handy for keeping things I cut out of magazine’s in.

I decorated the front with a pentacle sew on patch, lots of charms,fake ivy leaves (to symbolise the feminine) barn owls as they are my power animal and a feather from my duck because she is one of my “Familiar’s”

The back : an eagle owl feather and a black eagle feather that my hubby got me from the bird of prey sanctuary he volunteers at, a wooden crow because that is his power animal and the beautiful Victorian style owl ribbon was sent to me by my lovely friend Lois in America.

Ribbon detail: witch charms

Ribbon detail: my name

Divider pages : images courtesy of google search

The good thing about using a binder is that you can take pages out and about with you if you are doing outside rituals ,but I would advise using those plastic page pockets

The cheap frame I got for 99p
I got this really cheap frame in a charity shop and sprayed the back of the glass black and added charms

This is my haunted mirror ,this is when I first tried to make it into a scrying mirror ,because it didn’t have plain glass I had to spray the front of the mirror but it was too dull,so I was going to get some very high gloss lacquer to coat over it,unfortunately the glass broke !

So I had to put new glass in it,I couldn’t afford to get some glass specifically cut for it because that is really expensive, the only glass I could find didn’t quite fit which was really annoying, so I had to cover the gaps with fake black orchids, I don’t like it but I guess it makes it a bit gothic and spooky looking.

This will be interesting, now that the original glass is broken will it stop the mirror being haunted ,or will it release the spirits into my house ? Will have to wait and see (with sage at the ready !!)
A FEW DAYS LATER :

That awkward moment when you walk past a mirror and think you have turned into a vampire !!! Because you forgot you turned it into a black glass scrying mirror and you can’t see your reflection!!! LOL 🙂

See previous blog about this mirror

Also,I think I have finally finished updating the strange Bowie monument I didnt even realise I had made !!

My old retired book of shadows that was getting ridiculously huge !

Quick reading with oracle I won ,to help find lost plug of all things

Posted in coincidences, duck, elements, experiments, familiars, oracle readings, oracles, ouija /pendulum, pagan and wiccan, pendulums, spells, tarot and oracles on May 18, 2017 by Psychic eevee

So ,my hubby went to clean out the ducks big bath,which is an actual bathtub you would have in a house,we have it in the garden,he tipped it upside down and lost the plug,for a week he hunted high and low …that area of the garden is overgrown and we throw our weeds and grass cuttings there,no luck,its an old bronze style plug not a plastic white one so we knew it would not be easy to see..he bought a plug,it didn’t fit.

I told him to try the new oracle set that he won for me,we nearly fell over when he got these cards

FAMILIAR: well the duck is my familiar, and for the past week a black cat has been appearing in our front garden.

CHALICE :symbolises water, we needed the plug to put water in the bath

Really hard to read but it says “something that has been missing will turn up” !! We both looked at each other and said “no way ” !

WATCHTOWER OF THE WEST:

Really hard to read but it says the element for the west is water and the tool is chalice (basic Wiccan knowledge but interesting that both cards were pulled together)

when we went out in the garden we tried the lost object spell and I tried my pendulum, which has a high success rate of finding things,I filmed the test to show how a pendulum is used,it was going bonkers in the WEST !! giving a strong YES answer but it was getting tough to narrow it down in quite a large area …I did test all other areas where it clearly said no ,in the east,south and north, it was also pouring with rain …remember chalice=water as does west ! And the rain was starting to get in my tablet so we had to abandon.
The next day,the plug was found.!!! Slightly off from west ,I didn’t  film it because we could just be accused of setting it up as it was not a continuous video,but those who know me,know I do not lie
PLEASE DO NOT REBLOG THANKS

Modern Burial barrow: Pagan point of view & psychic reading

Posted in ancestors, animals, burial Barrow, butterflies, heritage, leylines, location readings, pagan and wiccan, Pareidolia, witches butterfly on May 7, 2017 by Psychic eevee

The other weekend we went to visit a modern burial barrow,one of the first to be built in the UK,the owner kindly let me hang around to take photos for my graves and monument website (I have not edited my proper photography yet)

What is unusual about this is that it is not actually for burials like the barrows in Neolithic times were, this is for cremation ashes, personally I have a huge aversion towards cremation 😦 so cannot see myself wanting to end up here but it is a truly beautiful place and you can be any religion ,the man who owns it is Christian but he said any religion can use it and any ceremonies can be carried out there as long as they are respectful, so I approve of that.

He was interested to see what I made of it as a wiccan and psychic

This location is amazing ,it took only six stone masons five months ,BY HAND ,to make and only the six monoliths at the front are fixed in place, the rest of the stones are just stacked !

With the sentinel monolith stone guarding it,anyway let’s start at the beginning….

First we stopped in the car to have a cup a soup lunch,I was hoping the rosemary cracker’s would make me more psychic

It is tucked away in a lovely peaceful countryside location where you hear only birdsong,its a short walk from the carpark,we found an old barn with old farm equipment

Would love this old wagon for my garden

People out hiking in the flat “fens”

A lovely wooded area

Complete with fairy bridge

I couldn’t believe it…a witches butterfly followed me all the way there ! (See other witches butterflies blogs)

Then another wiccan sign…a moon gazey hare came running directly at us !! Have never seen one that close before

Due to my beliefs in the Goddess /mother earth,I saw the shape of this as a pregnant woman,and that the passed on people would go in here to be reincarnated …”from womb to tomb to womb” the inside is circular,like infinity, the circle of life,the circle of reincarnation. The shape was motherly and welcoming, not gloomy and morbid,I preferred its shape to the more common long barrow

Trust me ,these photos do not do it justice !! These are just camfone snaps, when I have edited my proper photography I will add a link

The square niches are for the urns,they are finished with stone covers that can be personalised,I didn’t take photos of the finished ones out of respect to the families.

I did not get a snap of the ceiling but it is round,giving it even more of an appearance of a pregnant woman in my opinion.

I should imagine this will attract bats and all sorts of animals but that will just add to the atmosphere 🙂

Some beautiful hand felted urns.

Hubby with the man who owns it -he was fascinating to talk to,very friendly and educational.

Blowing out the candles

I helped to blow the candles out which was quite an honour.

In darkness …from glorious and atmospheric to silent and somber.

When it is all lit up ,it is the most peaceful place, not at all depressing or sad,you feel only happiness at the lives remembered here.

Although you can see your breath, it is not cold !!

It is not at all “spooky” you could spend hours in here lost in thought meditating and I imagine the acoustics would be awesome for singing or playing musical instruments.

Wherever you walk you find light,because it comprises two circular areas ,kind of a metaphor to me for spirits finding their way to the next life.

The contrast of blue and yellow stone really is spectacular in the candle light,the owner let me keep some for my rock collection 🙂 although the barrow is modern,the stones are not.

My psychic feeling here was of being transported rapidly back in time to my ancestors in the Hebrides and my Celtic ancestors in Ireland,I saw also my Norse heritage,I didn’t pick up on any spirits of anyone who had been interred in the barrow,I am kind of glad about that,I think it shows they are truly at peace.

I did see two cloaked guardians standing on top of the barrow ,they were holding “stangs” (two pronged wooden staffs) and got the word “Iceni” they were a tribe in these parts

I got the names “Oleb ” and “Cajeb”

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iceni

I saw also a woman in tattered clothes gathering lavender (of which there actually wasn’t any at the site ) she was in the small wooded area to the left and kept looking furtively around,she had a withered arm and I was given the name Molly Passill,I don’t know if she was stealing the lavender or one of those sad unfortunates accused of witchcraft,she didnt mind me looking but when she saw my husband glance in her direction she vanished,she was followed by a big Irish wolfhound type dog and a boy aged about 7 who wore nothing more than a dirty shawl round him,the name given for him was Edwin…no surname,do not know if they were related.but I feel they were true “heathens” =heath dwellers.

I smelt bonfire smoke ,there were no fires that I could see.

I was more fascinated in the sentinel stone,

I felt very drawn to this and although it could probably be put down to pareidolia I saw things in it ,looking like a cave painting I saw an upside down sort of half cat/half dog animal :front half cat,back half dog,which I believe is the sites power animal.

I also saw a side profile of a bearded Druid like man,he was wearing some sort of band across his forehead and the words “Hawthorne harvest” jumped out.! Hawthorne is a protective plant to Pagans and I feel that if some isn’t planted around the site then it will appear naturally and MUST NOT be cut down !

On pointing out the animal figure to everyone they also saw it but that of course can be down to the power of suggestion !

However, I was very fascinated that a Christian lady said she could see something with antlers in the sentinel stone ,and I said that with our beliefs that would be seen as Cernunnos,the nature God ! And seeing him must mean he approved and is protecting the site.

I had asked previously by email if this barrow had been specifically built on a ley line as it would have been originally ,I was told no,but I bet that without knowing it ,it actually is on one and a very strong one too (I shall look into that)

Despite this being a modern barrow and for people of all religions there is no getting away from the fact that Pagans still watch over these important sacred stones and monuments,it doesn’t matter if they are Neolithic or made last year !

My Pagan tattoos

Posted in owls, pagan and wiccan, pagan tattoos on November 16, 2016 by Psychic eevee

This used to be a Nirvana smiley face but it was a terrible tattoo so I got it changed to a triple moon

My power animal the barn owl

This is my favourite one ,luckily we have a tattoo artist in the family

My next one will be an ivy leaf for female on one shoulder and an oak leaf for male on my other shoulder ,sort of at the front in line with my collar bones

The spooky ornament

Posted in coincidences, handfasting, Haunted items, pagan and wiccan, psychic finds on August 19, 2016 by Psychic eevee

Many many years ago on one of my charity shop hunts I Bought this ornament and had no idea why,when I got it home it freaked me out,I did not like the hooded figure so I put it away in a drawer thinking I would sell it at a bootsale,I forgot all about it.

When I became Pagan \Wiccan I remembered the ornament and realised that it was probably a handfasting (pagan wedding ceremony) gift,that the hooded figure symbolised the priestess who joins the couple together !

I looked in the drawer,it was gone,it drove me insane for about 8 months,I knew I would not have thrown it away and I did not remember giving it to anyone !

When my dad was dying in hospital my uncle had cleaned up the house for him and there on the sideboard was the ornament ! It really was not my dads sort of thing,I have a sort of idetic memory but had no memory of giving it to him, I could not question my dad as he was too unwell ,so I asked my brothers if I could take it home,

A week later my dad passed and not long after that I went to put something in that same drawer only to find a photo of my dad in his younger years staring up at me ! That photo had not been there before.

I suddenly realised the link with the mysterious ornament and it being found at my dads house….

I was obviously drawn to it because I was going to become Pagan in the future ! (At the time I was a Buddhist)

Due to family members who messed up my life I did not know who my real dad was until I was 27 ,he just missed being at my wedding 😦

We planned to have a pagan handfasting so that he could attend some kind of “wedding” but that did not happen in time before he died ,due to a few people letting me down on the robes 😦 knowing my dad he probably would of found a handfasting weird but he would of attended ,he used to call me “a ippy” (dropped his H’s as he was a cockney)

So in some small way,the ornament ending up at his house and picking up his energies means that when we do finally get our handfasting I can have the ornament there,his presence will be around that way.(he is always making himself known anyway, bless him)
