And all the pleasnat things that show
That you are looking after me.

The Goddess Tree’ - ‘The Lady of the Woods’.
The birch is known as a ‘Pioneer Tree’ – meaning it is one of the first trees to establish itself in cleared forests. Because of this it is related to the first letter of the Ogham alphabet.
Birch is a tree of new beginnings and establishments.
Birch wood charms are often placed above the entrance door to protect the home.
Planting a Birch tree at the front entrance of property will provide protection and repel evil influences and spirits.
The astringent leaves can be crushed and made into a Birch Tea, which is used as a laxative and diuretic.
Both the tea obtained from leaves, and the fresh drink made from the sap are high in Vitamin C.
The traditional broom of the Witches was made of birch twigs, and cradles were once made from birch wood for the sole purpose to protect the helpless children

ACOW’s Crystal Grid
I've done lots of research over the past 5 years about Crystal Gridding. I have set up many of my own crystal grids, but I think it will be more powerful if many of us link together. This is not a new concept and is practiced all over the world. I hope you like my version...
What is a Crystal Grid...
Multiple crystal grids sometimes are more powerful than just using a single crystal for an intended purpose. Crystal grids are made by the placement of stones in a geometric pattern for the specific purpose of directing energy toward a goal. The crystals or gemstones are then charged by your intention and energy.
Crystals also have the ability to transmute energy, in other words to change a negative energy…

Spring Cleansing: Home, Hearth, Sacred Space
As spring burgeons and blooms forth, we have an innate urge to cleanse our spaces, whether these are our homes, our gardens, or sacred spaces. The new birthing energies are rising within and we feel that joy that comes with new avenues of exploration, life, opportunities, and growth.
As you clean your home in the normal way, remember to add a touch of your magical knowledge, and ward your hearth and home, as well as protect and cleanse the energies within and without.
You can add herbs to your broom or besom to lend their power to your work. Sage, a great protector, is one used in many ways, and always a good companion. Add some rosemary for remembrance of good times, and to protect these energies as you dispel the old and make way for new. Heather or lavender…Continue
Sumerian song to Inanna
Heaven is mine, the earth is mine
I am warrior am I
Is there a god who can vie with me?
The gods are sparrows-I am a falcon
The gods trundle along
I am a splendid wild cow.
