Explaining the astral without getting preachy or including jargon so the average person will understand what’s going on and won’t be bored mindlessly is fucking hard when you’re writing realistic fiction.

Hi, I saw your answered ask where you mentioned you use oil for you hair. Could I ask what you use?

A mix I make up at home. What it consists of generally depends on the weather and my hair’s condition at the time. I make almost all my own beauty stuff (save makeup) and my hair does much better when I skip shampoo entirely and use more herbal stuff. It’s lighter, shinier, has more volume and bounce, and more importantly my hair curls properly. In fact, I don’t use shampoo or conditioner.

Generally speaking I use coconut oil, avocado oil, extra virgin olive oil, and honey as a base and add on whatever from there. I tend to add chamomile, lemon, and rosemary to the mix because I’m a blonde but it’s not a requirement. Most often, my hair smells like coconut for a few days which isn’t something I mind. Some people add in scented water or a few drops of essential oils for a particular scent. I don’t usually bother.

As for how to do it… I wash my hair in cool water, then oil it (pretty much just the oil through my hair until soaked, let it sit for ten minutes or so (this might not be necessary if you have a lot of oil or do it often. If you’re using warmed oil treatments, wrap your hair), then wash it out as well as you can. It’ll still be oily so I recommend letting it dry and washing it again or skip that and just sleep with the hair wrapped. I tend to say fuck it, braid my hair loosely, and cover my pillows with older pillowcases. That’s partially because my hair is long and curly and putting it up or under a wrap is asking for it to become a big tangled mess worthy of housing birds. Brushing your hair with natural bristle brushes also help spread the oil out and get rid of excess oil (plus, it will spread the oil back on your hair as it fades). I oil my hair about once a month with the above recipe and typically I don’t need to do it more unless I mess about swimming in the ocean or pools. I will sometimes do herbal washes but that’s more for color consistency or magical purposes than anything else.

For people who want to try it out, there’s lots of recipes on the internet. Please double check the ingredients of the recipes and watch for sensitivities and allergens.

I rambled a bit, sorry about that.

Potato-wielding man tried to rob store, dry-cleaners






thedreamingwood - I thought the same but there may be another deity by that name from a lesser known religion (like out of the Polynesian islands) so I like to hedge my bets. I know there was a prophet in the Islamic branch of faiths named Mani (excuse my ignorance on this. I’m clueless.)

I know recently there’s been some flat-out misinforming posted on Wikipedia with non-historical Norse deities (ie, made up). (I believe it was Norse) It was very likely on purpose and spread through the internet like wildfire without any historical evidence to back it up. Perhaps Máni was one of the victims of this?

I hope this doesn't come across as intrusive and if it does I sincerely apologize, I was just wondering if you have ever thought about sharing stories about your witchcraft/spirit dealings/etc? Would that ever be something you'd be willing to share? I don't mean free knowledge or your secrets, just interesting stories or things of that nature. I really enjoy reading about the snippets of woo~ things you've shared and was hoping to hear more in the future, if you'd be okay with that. Thank you!

Ah, it’s not rude but thank you for being so polite about it!

I do post some over on my wordpress blog, moreso than here because tumblr isn’t exactly the best place for posting UPG or experiences in my opinion. Generally speaking it’s where I post my spiritual calendar, some experiences on the spiritual side of things, etc. That’s also where I get a lot of direct communication for my shop too (but that’s not exclusive.) I’m very slowly moving content from the resources over there as well.

I try to update once a week but my schedule recently has been loopy given illness and new demands on my time. I should be getting back to that schedule over there soon. I do sometimes cross-post those posts with tumblr, but not all the time.

Hi, I was wondering if you knew any prayers to the goddess Máni, or any sort of inspirational blogs so I can make my own. I haven't been able to find anyone that has her as a deity. Thanks, you're the best! I hope The Necromancer and the rest of your family is doing alright.

I still don’t know who this Máni goddess is? I was asked this similarly a few weeks ago and answered it saying as much. Unless she belongs to a religion I’m unfamiliar with (entirely possible!) then the only deity I know by the name Máni is from the Norse (and texts and lore states Máni is male, last I checked).

Again, I may not be thinking of the right religion or I could be historically wrong. Either way I can’t help you as I’m unsure which deity you’re referring to. Ideally, you should be able to get prayers and ideas for offerings and altars from the texts and lore of the deity in question.

As an aside, thank you for your well-wishes. We’re doing quite fine.

The book that emerged from a bog after 1200 years

This is the remarkable story of a medieval book that spent 1200 years in the mud. Around 800 someone had a Book of Psalms made, a portable copy fitted with a leather satchel. The book consisted of sixty sheets of parchment that were carefully filled with handwritten words. Somehow the book ended up in a remote bog at Faddan More in north Tipperary, close to the town of Birr, Ireland. Dropped, perhaps, by the owner? Was he walking and reading at the same time? Did he himself also end up in the bog?

Fast-forward to 2006. Eddie Fogarty, the operator of a turf digger, noticed an object with faint lettering in the bucket of his machine (pic 1). There it was again, our Book of Psalms! At this point it resembled something from an Aliens movie (pic 2), but that changed quickly after it went to the restoration lab. Thanks to the conservation properties of turf, many pages were still intact, as was its leather satchel (pic 3), the only surviving specimen from this early period. Remarkably, among the damaged pages were some that had let go of the words: kept together merely by ink, the words were floating around by themselves - like some sort of medieval Scrabble (pic 4). It’s the most remarkable bookish survival story I know.

More on this phenomenal find in this news article and this one. Here is the bog and the machine that dug up the book More on the restoration process here. More about the papyrus found in the binding here. This is a nice movie on the book.

This is so epic it makes me cry

How does one "dispose" of a curse jar properly? I feel like I've acted a little hastily in targeting this person, and have honestly felt more backlash from it myself because of the guilt.. I need it gone, I want to forgive and forget, and move on happily with my life.

Depends on the purpose of the curse. If it was to hold something back (say, to remove the person from your life) burying it should work. If it’s a more offensive type, where it goes after something of your target, leaving it at a crossroads, leaving it on a moving vehicle (like a bus or a river but the bus would be more environmentally friendly) or breaking it may be a good idea.

It depends on the curse. The safest bet is to bury it at a crossroads. What feels right? Whatever you do, I’d make sure that wherever the jar’s final place will be is far away from your work, home, and places you frequently visit.

I was wondering, I see people selling jewelry and such under the name of a spirit vessel, that there's a dragon or a djinn or a faery attached to it. Ids buying these items a good idea?

Eh, I wouldn’t personally. You have no way of confirming - especially online - that the claim is legitimate. Aside from that entrapping spirits in vessels can be a moral gray ground for some and a point of contention for others.

Most often these items are scams. There may be one or two items out there that are legit but I wouldn’t buy any of them without handling it myself in person first.
