Dedicating An Animal Spirit

Hello and Welcome!

I’ve recently discovered a ritual that is both beautiful and magickal. If you are one that finds your pet to be special and powerful, then this is the spell for you. If you are also one who finds great purpose in worshiping deities, then this is the ritual for you.

This ritual is dedicating an animal to a specific Spirit. This will create a profound triangular relationship between human, spirit and animal. This ritual derives from indigenous Siberia, but with a twist.

THE SPELL

  1. Choose a specific animal to be dedicated to a specific deity. ( I will include a list of animals and the deities that are associated with them.)
  2. Purify the animal with juniper incense.
  3. sprinkle it with wine.
  4. Decorate the animal with ribbons in Colors associated with the specific Spirit.
  5. Offer the animal an infusion of 1 teaspoon of honey to 1-2 cups of water.
  6. The animal is returned home or to its flock. It is now never ridden, eaten, or worked. It is treated special and allowed to enjoy its life as a gesture of sacrificial devotion. This treatment may extend over the animal’s entire natural life or for a specific period of time. This must be specified during the initiation.

Feast of Flora

Happy Feast of Flora, everyone!

On this day, we honor those that have past to the underworld. From our ancestors, to those that nearly passed, we give their memory meaning. For them, but also for ourselves. Every day, we face our morality. Either by the face of death, illness, or heartache, we eventually realize the same path we follow. The very same fate our ancestors learned. Because of that, there is comfort that we are not alone to face what is ahead. We shall not fear, for we too will become the next generation of ancestors.

But for now, on this day, we will honor them. We will bring to them flowers from the living, to represent the glory of paradise. And remind those their journey is only the beginning. Their end only a moment of rest. Rebirth is but around the corner. We honor their memory, with love in our hearts. Like those in the future, will one day honor us.

This here is a memory of last year. A message written for my grandmother. Same burning for my ancestors before me. I remember this night well, for I didn’t feel alone. I felt a presence. A spirit that I believe captured in this photo. (Top right)

Well, soon nightfall will be here, and with it, a new ritual to honor my ancestors. I still have the letter to my grandmother, I will burn it tonight and save its ashes for the next year.

I hope this day brings great peace to those who still remember and still honor the old ways.

Great blessings to the ancestors, and to you all.

Blessed Be )○(

Angel’s Water Recipe

Greetings and Merry Meet!

Angel Water, or otherwise known as Aphrodite Water, has been a traditional recipe passed down in my family. However, my grandmother called it el agua de Angel. After many years and research, and much to my surprise, I came across it in different writings but all the same recipe. It was a thrilling find. 
El agua de Angel was a face toner and bath water in my family, but through my research I learned that it is often used in beauty spells and aphrodisiacs. Made a lot of sense when I found that out. Lol. Many of my aunts found good husbands. 

Other than to inspire love, it can also be used to cleanse the love between a couple. As well as cleansing for self-love. 

My grandmother used to create the recipe using floral water and an infusion of the leaves and roots. Blending them together just right to create the tonic. It is a longer process, but the smell was enchanting and fresh. 

The recipe consists of mostly Myrtle. A small tree, often with white, pink to purple flowers. My grandmother used the flowers, leaves, and stems. It is this tree that invoked the magical properties of love and beauty. In my studies, this is also a sacred tree to Aphrodite. Depending on how much your making, make certain that the recipe has a little more than half of Myrtle in it. 

~El agua de Angel Recipe~ 

(using floral water & infusions)
Myrtle flowers, leaves, and stems

Orange Blossoms

Roses

Lavender

Trefoil flowers

Angelica Root

There is no definite measurement. This is because the maker of this tonic has to judge it by smell. The way I see it, your heart will know when the fusion is perfect. 

~Angel Water recipe~

(Using essential oils)
21 drops of Myrtle

15 drops of Neroli

9 drops of   Rose

Again this is not a definite measurement. You will need to call it by heart. 

So have fun with this. And enjoy!
