Incense In Ancient Egypt

I've been busy and I'm about to be a lot more busier since I'm gonna be involved in a theater project.. Anyways, meanwhile I'm sharing this incense recepie used in ancient Egypt. Named Kyphi (meaning "Welcome to the gods"), it was one of the very precious mixtures used at the time. It's use included aid for sleep and dreaming as well as all kinds os complaints.

Kyphi's main ingredients were Frankincense and Myrrh. Cinnamon, spikenard, sandalwood, coriander, raisins and wine are the rest and used to make the whole thing into pellets.

I gotta try this one as soon as I get all the ingredients. I'm also planning for doing a dream spell, meaning, that I'd cast a spell while asleep, being aware of the fact that I'm asleep. In other words, while lucid dreaming. You see, in a dream state your vizualisation is the most strongest and the ability to live the outcome of the spell as well. So it is a very powerfull technique. ;)

The book everybody shoud read!

I just read the book "Noitien asianajaja (Häxornas förvarare)" by Jan Guillou. I gotta tell you that I absolutely love the book! If you can say you know anything about the burnin times and witch hunts.. think again and read this book. Because if you haven't read this book I dare to claim you know nothing. The book is about witch hunts in Sweden, but also in Finland, Norway, Iceland, Italy and Spain. It is a must-have in every witches bookshell.

The thing I love about this book is that it's very profound. It is also written in a way that it both makes you laugh and cry. It analyzes the worldview of the people in 15th century and eventually points out that nothing has changed. And against modern expectations, there were people in the 15th century who stood by the so called witches and thought that the witch hunts were absolutely nonsense. I the book, read it, read it, read it!!!

On other things. Once been studying Ceremonial Magick or Ritual Magick or "Art Magick", or whatever you want to call it, I'm even more convinced that Wicca is the thing for me. What a dazzling sensation it was, when I was spending my Esbat and performing the Charge! Though it is very usefull to read and study other forms of magick too. I learned a lot. :)
