Energizing Floor Wash
Does the energy in your home need a boost? Does the vibe just feel stagnant or thick? Even after a good physical cleaning and organization, even the most serene and happy home can sometimes suffer from a case of the energetic blahs.
Try this simple version of an energizing floor wash designed to raise and uplift the vibrations of your home environment.
In a full bucket of water, place three stones in any combination of citrine, sunstone, or carnelian. Allow their energies to infuse the water for an hour or so. Then add to the water 9 to 15 drops of any citrus essential oil or alternatively one tablespoon of lemon juice. Citrus fruits and their oils are known to have an energizing and uplifting vibration. Proceed to mop the floors and especially the entryway of your home with the freshly energized water.

Witchcraft, as the name suggest, is a ‘craft’ practiced by witches. The reason why it is called witchcraft and not wizard craft is that it was mostly practiced by women in ancient times. So in a way, witch craft is usually associated with women.
Another reason was that women stayed at home while the men went out to earn their living. These women helped the people especially women of their community in curing their diseases.
Witchcraft, in fact, was known as the ‘The Craft of the Wise.”’ It was so called because those who practiscd it lived close to the nature and cured the diseases of the people, a service that nobody else could render. Because these witches stayed close to nature, they over a period of time, were able to decode the healing properties of various herbs and plants.
Witch craft faced the ravages of time and slowly it began…Continue

The Pentacle, the symbol of Witchcraft, is a bold and fascinating statement about our place in the Universe. The pentagram represents an ancient concept that can be found in philosophical thought in both East and West. Although over 8,000 years old, the image of the pentagram is applicable in our modern world. The pentagram tells us that we have the ability to bring Spirit to Earth; this applies to every area of practical day-to-day living, as well as spiritual thought. The ability of bringing Spirit to Earth is what makes us whole.

Maia means mid-wife in Greek. She is the embodiment of growth; with the month of May named for her, she is truly a May Queen. Her name means “ancestors” as well as “mother”. She is the Roman Goddess of fertility and was celebrated with flowers and blooms in abundance.
Maia is the daughter of Atlas and Peione and is the eldest of the seven Pleiades. She was taken by Zeus at night in the Cave of Cyllene and was then pregnant with Hermes. After he was born, she wrapped him in blankets and slept. Hermes grew so fast that he crawled all the way to Thessaly, where that night he stole cattle from Apollo. Hermes also invented the lyre from a tortoise shell. Hermes exchanged the cattle for the Lyre he created.
She was paired with Vulcan because they were both considered Deities of heat:…Continue

Apollo is one of the twelve deities of Olympus, the son of Zeus and Leto, and twin brother to Artemis [Apollo and Artemis].
