Samhain Candle Wax Divination Idea

Have a merry Samhain people! :) I have come across a nice Samhain divination technique that I'd like share with you. You only need a candle, a key and a bowl of cool water. Light the candle and let the wax melt some time. Then take your key. Hold it above the bowl of water and pour the candle wax through the key hole into the bowl. As the wax cools down it forms figures. Meaning of the figures are as follows:

Ring or circle: marriage/partnerships

A star or comet: unexpected news

Flower or a four leaved clover: happiness and good luck

Blade or knife: arguments and unhappiness

Of course there might also be figures which are not on the list and you just have to figure them out on your own. This's from the book "The Real Halloween, Ritual and magick for the new millenium" by Sheena Morgan.

Hope you like it and Blessed be!

I'm on a journey

So yesterday I went to the library to get a book by Kate West and I also found myself drawn to another book called "Magick of Shadows" (fin. "Varjojen taika", Kaija Juurikkala) and before I knew it was reading it from the half way and couldn't help myself but start shaking and almost crying because of the powerful emotions it brought up in me. The book is about a past life experience of the author. It takes place in old Japan, where she was sexually molested by her calligraphy teacher mister Tsu and thus, brought to death by her family as a form of purification. The whole story struck me on a very deep level, so deep that I have never felt before but at the same time it was very purifying. I saw finally clearly this person who had hurt me. I had seen something in this person that was so ugly and sickening that I could not understand on a mundane level. I didn't understand where it came from but now I know that my soul remembers. I'm not saying I was a victim of mister Tsu, but rather something similar might have happened to me in Asia in a past life with this person I know now. And I was guided to find this book in order to bring it up and release it. I do not have grudge against this person, Rather, I'm relieved. Because of the clearness I have now. I finally remember. It also makes sense that Hecate came to me, since we are dealing with very deep stuff here, something only she might help me with.

So.. this is what has happened lately...

Hecate has gotten her own little altar. How did this happen? Well, all I know it just did. Gradually, it did. I'm very intuitive and always follow my inner guidance and this is what I felt like doing now. She chose me, so to say. ;) I do not know why, but I guess I'll find it out sooner or later. What I know now is that I've never felt this strong ever in my life. And I considered myself a strong person, after all. But never ever have I felt like this. Now I do understand people who have had  any type of a religious awakening... Feeling of such an empowerment that there's somebody for you, looking after you, there for you. And the fact that this happened so randomly, I have not been much of a deity person, not that there's anything wrong with it I just never felt it'd be for me ya know. I have always preferred to work on my own.. But oh well, she chose me and that's how we roll now. :)

For those thinking of finding a deity; Be alert for your inner guidance, signs and the like. How it will happen with each person is unique. Are you drawn to some specific animal? Start from there. Do you feel fascinated by some culture? Read from it. Even simple things like music or colors can give you a hint. Are you suddenly drawn to something? (That is how it usually starts with me...) Follow your inner self and you'll get there, eventually. :)

Rabbit art

Inspired by the beautiful illustrations I posted earlier, I drew this rabbit. It's hanging on the wall, above my bed now. I feel it's calming me down. :)
