Cursed

So I have been doing much research on the aspect of a curse. I did dive into the practice of blood basting or offering up first burns. No, I stuck to the basic etymology and ideology of humans relationship to a curse. It’s very simple. The word originates whenever someone says something against someone else. That’s why scholars have trouble finding the origin of this word and any other meaning that ill, anger intent or situation. What matters most is not a curse but words. I used to laugh at the whole bibles “name is claim it” and “no don’t let the devil hear you!” And now thought I still think this is just one very simple aspect to use fear to deter people from proclaiming any malicious words or disdain expression. So, that’s simple. If a guy in my dorm keeps leaving his wet clothes in the wash and I say “damn it! I hope he get what comin to him!!” You can best believe that is a curse. What if he has a legit reason?! Like slippery finger disease?! Now if I were to say “damn! I hope he gets what he deserves” this isn’t a curse. Because, well, maybe you just sent out energy to assist the doctors in making some super finger healing ointment! This may be what he deserves! My anger release would be nothing more then a charge of negative energy in the room, and probably assist in helping me be bitter about laundry etiquette. This should show that simply naming and claiming doesn’t have quite the impact as one would hope. This is because of intent and often more than anything; wording. The idea of cursing someone or something is a blast or thought out act of distinctly intense energy. “I am so ugh that I’m gonna….!” While declaring “I’m gonna be rich!” To my coven, congregation, or nudist group does quite have to same punch. The receivers of the proclamation are many, where as with curses and blessing at times too!, it is charged to one distinct origin. It’s not going to happen that people will stand in a congregation cursing each other but they would stand and proclaim. And this sends energy into the action to BEGIN manifestations but the rest is a lengthy process of commitment, intent, and drive to work the energy to the cause or outcome. To be rich, you may simply need to work really really hard. As you do this thought the energy would build and help you if you continued to work in such manner.
Now I could imagine a street riot of people strewing streams of curses across the street, or perhaps a fight in the hall, or the abusive husband; but then again we see the intensity of this action, this energy.
I read an article “is it worth to curse” and the author says that if her sister were rape she surely would curse the perp. Because the damage is already done (the worry of curse 1 and you’ll be 3x cursed back doesn’t apply then), it seemed she denoted it a type of retribution. And I agree.
I recently had a friend ask me if I did dark arts or black magic or whatever she said. She asked if I worked with curses. And I said “well I’m sure I’ve been mad enough at someone I’ve probably said something I shouldn’t have. Don’t we all?!” And she said “no real curses what do you think about them” so this encouraged me to research. I think she felt someone had put some random curse on her, but I wanted to ask her if she knew the definition of kharma. An even dharma! I’m of the school that if you do things knowingly hurting others, live life ego lead (which is easy to do aahhhh), or live a life as if people owe you (this often is the relationship with jealousy, selfishness, and feeling rejected: these people love to do things for people but are unaware that the expect something in return and when they don’t get it they feel rejected and this insues drama if they’re unbalance so as they can communicate their expectations), you will attract negativity to you. Doing positive thing attract negative ions to you but because we may be balanced and confident we become merely a conduit of a small displacement of Ionic energy rather than having bad thin happening unusually too often. These negative ions are transformed by spirit, too, to teach us lesson, manifest a dark or light side of us we didn’t know we had, and much more. Ying and yang. If I bask in a bubble of love juice all day long I’d drown in my own lack of need for humanity. But, we are really humans and capable of saying things that have impact, doing things to change lives, and more!
What I learned about curses is simply this: we all do it, it nothing less than saying something in the heat of the moment, and a term used to scare people away from antiChristian studies. Curses and the antithesis of blessings. And that’s about it! If blessing is a good word. There may be a better word!

So excited about the launch of my website!  I can’t believe this is finally coming into fruition!  As I sit here with the common cold, ever so common I am, I feel a bit of joy rippling across the main page of my spirit or life with this experience!  Winter bearings bring abundance, and I look forward to its production being furthered then! I think it’s amazing when simple things cause joy and generally good feelings.  We have been so lost in this age of technology, everything within the American mandate to have! Well, a lot of us want to give, and that’s always refreshing!  In the entanglement of jealousy and envy, weaves a web of superficial success and loss.  I want to span out, even if unsuccessfully, and document this web I weave, ever so delicate.  Going back to the simple need of human kind, I excitedly explore purpose, passion, and pleasantries.  If only for tomorrow, then so be it but for today I will dance bare backed on a horse through the wild, winded night! Hm, and that would be interesting to dissect “what is success”! Until next time then 🙂

Jewelry for the Full Moon

Skin is our fabric. Natures canvas.

Metals of the earth, paint my flesh’s delicious night, as I breathe expanding the delicate red vines to the sounds moon waves varnishing my salty back!!!


As Above

The thing that baffles most people is simple why or reason. We usually can figure out how, or what, or who, but the sparsity of why beckons humans to run to a corner and demand an explanation.  Within the definition of many institutions we can find our corners more narrow or broad respectively,  never the less, humans place themselves in these corners whenever they ask why or desire a reason.  But, is it wrong?!  Surely, there are people who don’t dare as question what is.  They generally “go with the flow” and, often, are a bit dull.  They are what I call “room fillers” because they are important for the energy and essence of human beings as their sheer simplicity and naivety counter acts the luring harps chords of reason.  It is the desire and envy that become the definition of “wrong” or anti-human aspects.  And, I mean these aspects to be of their extremity.  Should naivety be questioned for it’s severity of participation in humanity it is only less disarming because it creates a type of anti-naivety by simply being what is.  Whereas, desire and jealousy in their aspects do create a sort of anti-desire, which is repulsion.  And, it is in the creation of the antithesis of the negative aspects of these human quests that provoke yet another possibly destructive aspect.  This is why reason becomes so delicious, because it can never be tasted even to the point of gluttony or negativity.  We can not know too much because we do not know too little.  It’s in the balance of creating our corners that keep us safe from the reality of how much we really don’t know.  And because of this, we’re often surprised by the dark aspects expressed by others because from our corner of knowledge we attempt to project and expect goodness and light therein.  When a girlfriend leaves for another or a child is abandoned, we stand in our corners and demand or cry out “why?!”.  “Why do you not love me?!” “Why god did you let this child experience this?!”  Most people find reason in a greater good, or higher purpose.  And this is precisely my point, that in knowing we find what we don’t know, or can’t know.  When a solution or institution or reason surface our awareness,  it will simply entertain more of what we don’t know.  Humans that live in the naive contentment of the unknown are not burdened by their inability to satiate any resonating desire or hunger for knowledge.  In their corners, the corners don’t exist or are entirely boxed.  It’s really a matter of knowing that there can not be corners or boxes within reason or the why, and, thus, in their simple existence they’re never panged to seek nourishment because they don’t feel their hunger.  It exists.  It is a natural part of humanity to wonder why and find reason, but I believe we can chose to entertain what we want in our corners or what may stab us in the back later.  The balancing line of the known and unknown, defined by the life and death of awareness, constructs the necessity for institutions, friendships, and hope.  All of which are below.

Not in this picture haha.  No, this is a picture of me wondering why the past never happened, and the future will never come.  I looked at my jewelry and the hole in my back and realized I had been in my own corner with blinders to truth.  But, there’s no excuse because I should have known that the natural order of things would lead the least expected.  Though if I were to have known what would have happened then there wouldn’t be aspect of the need to know.  With necessity, we are full and nothing needs us.

Chamber Series and Crafts

So I have begun the next batch of chamber series pieces and began to wonder what people use them for! I myself love the idea of carrying around charged herbs or a tiny pebble or even a whisper. But, I’m wondering when alternative jewelry will become more variable and trendy! I’m trying to make alternative and slightly religious jewelry with more fashion awareness implied, but I also like the beauty in the antiquated satchel or medicine bag! So it’s time to get back to work. I think if we had a way to carry around our beliefs we could raise energy and hope via trendy transportation. And we all know that incorporating spirituality in day to day life makes us all more happier, connected people! What we put on our bodies matter: so a spritz of parfumerie or a dab of jasmine oil, charged with hope in on a petal in a chamber! No more shoving it in your pocket hoping your craft doesn’t get squished and energy dismembered, rather something proudly displayed and visually appealing. Good looking and good feeling that is my hope!

KI

not really sure why this post is here lol well thats ok i can work in its space of KI. The world is still spinning and we humans are still working! its fascinating that at any age we learn and grow. I have felt too stagnant from the ohysical transformation: huddled under something comfy, writing until i echo myself my world simmers to a dull whistle. Im glad for it. simplicity. AltarL is finally uo and a bit social! not entirely finished of course but its time to get back under the buzzing, humming light to tinker with glitze. Im excited at the course our society is taking, embracing “different” idealogies and practices!

Spiritual Cowgirl

My latest inspiration is my 5 year old daughter who dreams of being a cowgirl.  So, I thought why not make western jewelry fashionably appealing to my hipster generation of lovers.  This is what I came up with last night:

LOVERS BOLO TIE

Bolo Lovers

Rose Quartz Pendulum on Rhodium Silver with lovers loving.

Rose Quartz is an excellent stone for love, drawing or opening the heart.  It also helps you learn to love yourself! Headaches, sexual dysfunctions, fears.


C Craft

Here’s a sample of my writing skills:

How much good could in witchcraft craft

If a witch draft could craft good

Ok ok now I’m just making myself laugh.  Maybe it’s because of my sinus infection.  Onto my mint tea and jewelry craft now.  I’ve got some new pendulums I’m dying to twist around someone neck!!
