Witchy graphics and animals

Bought myself a coloring book with beautifully illustrated pictures of animals. I completely fell in love with them! I took some of them out and put them on my wall, above my altar and by the window. As you all know, I'm a bit shamanistic. I resonate a lot with animals and have had many power animals with me during my life, even insects. When I was little I used to draw a lot and that's when my shamanistic side showed the most. My folks thought it was interesting and they've kept my drawings. At the age of four or so, I drew lots of birds. Just birds flying, all papers full. Sometimes I included myself flying with them. I also drew some foxes and when I entered preschool I drew wolves. But enough with the chat now, here's the ones I chose:

It all comes down to cats, eventually. Cat has been my power animal, more or less, quite some time now. Or maybe, there's something so inherently kittenish in me so that I just resonate with them.

This buddy is hanging above my altar.

These little folks found their place beside my window. Feeling so calm and secured when
I look at them.

Witchy stuff

Just bought a new box for all my witchy stuff and a new card deck too. ^^ Isn't it beautiful? Gotta love the cards too.

When I started working with cards I remember my first cards were playing cards. I feel like I somehow resonate more with the playing cards, after all, even though I've done some Tarot too. It's just been too long and I don't remember the meanings anymore, so gotta start reading about the playing cards again. :)

Mint Obsession!!

I've been obsessed with mint this week and bought a fresh bag of tried Mint for me. ^^ So, I've been watching this channel on Youtube called Ladygravedancer (also check the previous post) and had this idea of doing an oil - surprise - of my-oh-so-beloved-mint. I'm thinking of also doing a tincture, of pure mint of course. Oh, the thought of it already makes my guts go nuts (just made that up)!

So basically it all went as follows: I put the mint in a bottle. I also put some raw white sugar with it ('cause I felt like it). I warmed up sunflower oil in a mug, over a steaming water and poured it into the bottle with the mint and the sugar. Shook it up a bit and... Here we go:

(Sorry 'bout the crappy pictures, the bottle was umbelivably hard to shoot...)

But basically what I feel like this does to me is invigorate. I feel very fresh with this oil, also more happy and energetic. I feel like it also enhances my spirit, in a way like, bringing it back to it's own place. Kinda hard to explain, but that is how I feel. :) Looking forward to do the tincture...

Some herbal information: Cinnamon, every witch's dream herb?

Note to self, get cinnamon sticks. ;)

A great video about cinnamon and it's both medical and magical properties. :)
