There’s a spell I’ve been planning that may seem a big too dramatic for the problem it’s trying to resolve, but hear me out on this one. I’ve been dealing with a mounting creative blockage for a year or two now, and it’s gotten to the point that I can barely write and can’t draw anything. It even seems to have obstructed me from doing things I enjoy and taking inspiration from them for the things I create!
So, tomorrow morning (as Saturdays correspond to spells for removing blockages or obstacles), I have a spell planned that I’ve been preparing for about a week! Ever since last Friday and through the full moon on Wednesday, I’ve been charging up my sodalite, orange calcite, white opal, and obsidian arrowhead with energy from the sun, moon, and stars, along with a black, a white, an orange, and a blue candle. These candles are going to be arranged to the north, east, south, and west of my altar, respective to their hues, with their crystals of corresponding colors set in front of them. Then, in the spaces between each one, I’ll be laying some of my artist’s tools: a writing pencil, a drawing pencil, a paintbrush, and an implement for shaping clay.
I also plan on possibly making sigils for each candle, and I’m definitely going to try using tarot cards as an additional medium. I’ll also load up the spell with incantations, prayers, and even some mantras! As for why I’m going this far, well… Other than magick, creative expression of all kinds are kind of the pursuits I live for the most. And this creative block I’ve been experiencing has been getting so bad and going on for so long that I think I need to use my other most beloved pursuit, magick, to get my energies moving again!
Also, if you’re wondering about the art supplies, I’ve had some ideas recently for how to use everyday items as components to spells! I think it would be great if you’re a witch living on a budget and want to work with some ideas that are outside of the box. It’s an idea I originally found while researching vodou, so I’ll probably make a post on it sometime after I finish my humdinger of a spell that inspired this post!
Hopefully removing this creative blockage will also help me to start posting more. Until then, may the Tree of Life shelter you all!
Before I pull a card I surrender to my soul. I listen, with my ear pressed against its vibration. As I shuffle through the deck I close my eyes and bow to the divine within. I reach out energetically for guidance. With each card I pull my soul blossoms, my mind expands, and my devotion grounds.
HERE you will find decks that I personally use in my practice. Oracle cards a great way to tap into your intuition and connect with the higher realms. Through art and poetic messages you are able to dive deeper into your souls purpose.

Like a poetic spell, we become bewitched in the comfort of the water. Blanketed in the fluid element that makes up so much of our body. Taking a bath is a spiritual practice, a ritual where you can tap into your energy. From placing crystals in the water to alter the vibration to creating an elixir of essential oils to drop in. to honor the temple of your being, you can create an alter within the space, lighting candles that connect to your soulful presence.
Every Sunday I take a heart chakra bath. I love to use crystals and oils that activate and expand my heart space, healing and strengthening me for the week ahead. Whether you’re an empath, witch, or yogi, it’s important to care for your spiritual self. To release any energy that you’ve picked up during the week. A bath is an energetic and mental detox, creating a space for you to reconnect and realign.
The heart chakra is the center to your being the pathway between your lower and upper chakras: Root, Sacral, Solar, HEART, Throat, Third Eye, Crown. By cleansing your heart, you are able to find more emotional balance and clarity. I like to think of the heart as the place where the soul resides. When someone asks for you, you tend to point towards the center of your chest in response, “Who Me?”

OM TARA TUTTARE TURE SOHA 🙏 my new Tara alter is full of love, grace, and enlightenment. I wanted a space that I could visit and honor my devotion to her divinity. I offer her water in a rose quartz bowl and send my prayers to her though the vibrations of a singing bowl. It is in this space that I feel connected and blanketed in her cosmic compassion.
Crystals: Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Clear Quartz, Ocean Jasper, Celestite, and Blue Tara Quartz.
