Many Winter Solstice blessings to all my lovely readers. I’ve been busy baking and decorating. I baked shortbread, cookies and Gothic yule decorations. I have also set up a few Yule decorations on my kitchen table.
I baked cookies for munching on and frosted them. I am also proud to say I have won again in the Horror Writers Association Cookbook Contest. I enjoy baking and put my heart into it. And I don’t care what the recipe says, rolling out the dough calls for tons of flour to keep dough from being sticky. I want to get some white creamy frosting. I didn’t really want the chocolate frosting but I had more cocoa than icing sugar so I went with it. The cookies are now stored in the freezer, where the icing will ‘set’.
I found a large tree branch outside on the ground. It is 23 inches in length. I painted it blue silvery color and coated glitter on it. I made Yule salt dough decorations the previous year and hung them on the branches of the tree mobile. I’ve been inspired to hang Yule goth decorations too. I made several goth decorations ( a cauldron, the crescent moon, bats and ghosts) and I plan to paint them black. I will hang those on the same mobile. I can’t wait and I think it will look real cool. I wish I had a skull cookie cutter. Salt dough is easy to do and costs little. I am eager to see how it all looks.
Winter Solstice or Yule is almost here. I may conjure a candle for Yule too. I made spicy simmering incense too. For that recipe I gathered ground orange peel, bay leaves, pine needles, juniper berries, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, star anise, rosemary, frankincense and myrrh. I ground it all together to a powdery consistency. It smells heavenly. I wanted to make incense cones but it is not powdery enough for that. I will use it as a simmering incense potpourri. That smells just as divine.
I will join my Sacred Mists fellow Witch students for a magickal Yule ritual on December 21st. This Sabbat celebrates rebirth and renewal, and the return of longer days as the Lord of the Sun is reborn from the womb of the Goddess when life is wrested from the realm of death and light is born of darkness. Wreaths and evergreen trees are used to decorate your home.
Let the magic of Yule bless you, your home and your loved ones.
Merry meet all,
I just started a group on Facebook titled Ghost Conjurers. I was tired of waiting to be included into Paranormal Investigators groups so I began my own. So Ghost Conjurers is sister to my Paranormal & Witchy Fiction page on Facebook.
I already have some followers. I would love to have an actual crew like Ghost Adventures- my obsession and what inspired me to take this step. I want to explore places that are haunted. I want to acquire ghost hunting equipment and more than that, I want to use my own senses while I explore places. I am extremely clairvoyant and clairsentient so I could see myself doing well on eerie excursions. That is why I don’t understand why I am not included to go with groups. Oh well I have now started my own. It is really an extension of what I have been doing all along but now I have learned and grown from life. That is probably an essential step to take, to learn and grow as a person. Life has thrown everything at me. But I always bounce back.
Now I want to help others. I want to help the unheard, the dreaming, the ones who are adrift with their own psychic abilities who don’t know which step to take next. I want to help the ones who misused Ouija boards and are wondering why a dark shadow looms over their beds at night. I want to help the ones who think they have no voice. They do. They own very well functioning vocal chords. When I started out, I lucked out and found a community of like minded people who could help me. I believe they could just need some guidance and yes, they have to ask first, but I will always be here.
I am excited about this new direction in my life. I look forward to seeing what life brings me. I look forward to meeting new people hopefully and learning new things, and hopefully yes acquiring ghost hunting equipment. But I will never forget that I can see ghosts clear as day with my own eyes and sense energies with no tool in my hand. Our senses never deceive us and are rarely wrong. I will still work on this blog, maybe even more so. This is my passion and what I feel I am meant to do.
So I hope you consider joining my group/ page Ghost Conjurers. My mouse pad is an Ouija board. I think that’s brilliant. I have already done some investigating on my own. I hope to have a dedicated team on my side in the future, but I usually do things alone- or they wouldn’t get done. I visited the haunted famous Five Fishermen restaurant. I did get some psychic impressions from that place. I believe it’s haunted. I don’t know what I will explore next but I am sure it will be exciting. I really like Helen Creighton and if she could devote her life to catching all the folklore of the Atlantic Coast, I can do what I can do too as well as she did.
