I Conjure Thee — The Witching Hour

I stood staring at my altar in my dining room.  The first lacy fingers of autumn encircling me with Her cool touch.  The trees beyond the window whispered like the feathery sound of your palms when you rub them gently together to raise energy for a spell.  I took a deep breath.
Pleasant.
Fragrant.

I sighed.

High noon; but, the house was cloaked in inner twilight. Summer’s end in the woods, where chilly, dark shadows are punctuated with brilliant pools of just-warm-sunlight.  Not a bad thing.

I stared at my familiar tools.  My rattle.  My bell.  Sweet-apple incense smoke tickled the stillness.

I had no idea what to say.

I  watched the flame of my celebratory, golden beeswax candle spit and sparkle as I passed a bit of Crown of Success powder over its vacillating tongue.

I gazed at my newest book, propped between my Lord and Lady candles.  My first copy arrived today.  Eight years it took to write.  Eight years of research.  Eight years of life.  Eight years of experience – Success, Failure, Learning, Death, Knowledge, Birth, Courage, Heartbreak and Joy.

Complete.

For now.

Eight – a number signifying mastery and accomplishment.

But, only the beginning.

I thought of all the people who supported me through those eight years.  From their love now springs help for others.  You will never know them.  Not see them.  But, they are ghosts – happy spirits that haunt every page – that said, “Never give up.  Never give in.  You can do this.”

And I did.

I thought of all the people who would read the book.  I asked that each individual that opened the cover be given what they need.  That the Web of the Wyrrd provides love, good fortune, and success for those who accepted that energy.  I watched in my mind as silver strings of light shot out from my altar and into the universe…

I found my voice.

“If the people fear,” I said, “may they receive courage.  If the reader encounters illness, may they embrace healing.  If they are lonely, may they see the full realization that we are only lost to ourselves – that we are never truly alone.  If they are in danger, may they be given protection.  As I breathe and speak the words of power may each soul experience the love and compassion they need.  May the Web of the Wyrrd be turned in accordance with my wish and my will!”

So be it.

Silver RavenWolf’s Crow Crossroad’s Spell Candle Company on Etsy Great Release Program Catch Up


etsybanner2015

Greetings!

It has been almost a month since we finished the Great Release Program!  The two weeks after the program, my daughter’s and I continued to clean, dump, give away, move, reposition, realign, and change!  It was refreshing but, man!  It was a lot of work!  My studio, the home of my Spell Candle Company, was the worst of the house offenders — taking a full week to reorganize and streamline so that I could create without going crazy!    Actually being able to shut the closet door was an accomplishment of worldly import.

We added several new candles to the line, revamped all the wax melt formulas and labels, and began offering magickal pinback buttons that you can wear just because, or use on conjuring and gris-gris bags.

Learning to take clear photos of a 1.5 inch pinback button in the deep winter here in the woods has been an interesting challenge!

I also did two different sets of “walk-through” on Instagram, showing how I make the candles and wax melts.  Learning to dictate (argh) on the phone was…interesting.  The voice ap doesn’t exactly understand my evidently garbled diction!

One of the benefits for me this year with the Great Release Program was allowing myself to boost the color and freedom in my digital art.  I tend to be too serious, too perfection oriented…too…sigh…colorless (sometimes).  Being forced (by myself of course) to create art every day for the program was a challenge.  Yet, when I went back to working on the Spell Candle Company material, something wonderful happened!  My work turned into more lively, more eye-popping with color than ever before.
