shakeskp asked: Hello, I need help in purifying our home. My much loved father died eight months ago of cancer, we're a close-knit family and it hurt us very much, it still hurts us a lot. Our house has always been a sanctuary for our family, but lately I've felt like our pain, added to my father's pain when he was sick, kind of bled into our house. A lot of small but disagreeable stuff keep happening. I remembered my father put a big pink quartz stone in the garden...
There are a number of ways you can go about purifying a space. One of the most common ways is a smoke cleansing with dried herbs— sage is a very popular option, but you can also use rosemary, cedar, lavender, or sweetgrass. Smoke cleansing an entire house takes work, but it is possible! You’ll need a bundle of herbs and a fire-safe bowl of sorts, like ceramic bowl, a large ash tray, or even one of those a small cauldrons. Light the herbs aflame and wait for the flame to extinguish and the smoke to start drifting upward. Now, go to each room in your house and slowly make your way through them, making sure you walk along each wall and get to every corner. It’s important to walk slowly and allow the smoke to reach every area. The smoke alone should do the trick, but if you’d like to take any extra steps, reciting a few lines that convey your desire to purify the space will definitely help. You can invoke the elements of air and fire in a smoke cleansing as well, if you wish.
There are methods you can use, too. Consecrated water or salt are also very effective methods for purification, but might be a little messier. Like with the smoke cleansing, you’ll have to go around each room in your house and sprinkle a little bit of either water or salt as you go. You can also invoke the elements with these methods, water being associated with the element of, of course, water, and salt being associated with earth.
I’m not sure I understand what you mean by the big pink quartz… Do you think this quartz might be contributing to the issue? You kind of trailed off there. If you think so, though, you can purify the quartz as well.
I hope this information is helpful to you. I’m very sorry to hear about your loss. I wish you and your family all the best!
Anonymous asked: I want to curse a person. How can I do? I've never done it before. Is there any risk? Have you got some advice? Thank you xxx
If you’ve never performed a curse before, I suggest doing exactly what you’re doing right now: get some information, do your research, and think about it. If you’re new to witchcraft in general, I’m going to say that it probably shouldn’t be the first thing you ever do. You will want to get some experience with more basic spells and other magic work before casting a curse. I’m sure you already know that this can be a pretty controversial subject. Some people feel it’s extreme. Whatever you believe, just give it some thought before you follow through, to see if you really believe this to be the best course of action—sometimes, you might think of another way to go about handling the situation. You don’t want to act impulsively regardless of what it is you’re doing.
How you structure a curse may depend on what this person did and what you feel would be a suitable punishment. The best thing to do is research and see if you can find any information or already written curses that you feel fit the situation. There is no one way to perform a curse. Like any spell, they come in many different forms. I can’t tell you exactly how to do it, as I don’t know the full story. What I can tell you, though, is to make sure you protect yourself beforehand. You can do this via a protection spell or ritual, a prayer to any deities you follow, etc. Magic of any kind can have consequences, and you want to make sure you’ve taken all necessary precautions. This includes non-magical precautions, too, such as confiding in someone or even taking legal action if the situation calls for it. If you’re in immediate danger, a curse might only do so much.
So, where can you find the information you’re looking for? Tumblr Coven has a sister blog that is dedicated to this type of magic work that may have some information that could help you. You can find that blog here: http://curia-umbrae.tumblr.com/
You can also find books on the subject on Amazon! A good one is Utterly Wicked: Curses, Hexes & Other Unsavory Notions.
I hope this helps you out! If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate.
I would also like to add that other books you could look into are Curses, Hexes, & Crossing by S. Connolly and Protection & Reversal Magick: A Witch’s Defense Manual by Jason Miller.
