Black Walnut Shell Powder has been used for over 300 years (that we know of) in Eastern European Witchcraft. This multi-purpose powder is used for a variety of applications and is typically utilized by mixing with water, salt or honey. Traditionally, it is boiled in a cauldron with water and Agrimony Powder and used as a bathing rinse to banish energetic attachments, end bad luck and heal a broken heart.
Black Walnut Water Recipe:
We recommend adding 2 teaspoons of the Organic Black Walnut Shell Powder to 1 gallon of water. Bring to a boil, then allow to simmer until the water has been reduced by half. Add 1 teaspoon of Agrimony Powder and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat. At this point you may add 1/4 cup of sea salt - this step is optional but is highly recommended. Allow to cool to room temperature.
When needing to summon ferocious bravery and fearless determination, use this Viking Courage Ritual to overcome inhibition and personal limitations. Ideal for building daring self-confidence and overcoming uncomfortable situations. Ideal ritual to perform before going through an emotionally charged event. Such as leaving a dysfunctional relationship, quitting a job to pursue your own business, standing up for justice or embarking on a new life path.
Inspired by my occult studies in Iceland, this Old World Witchcraft adapted ritual utilizes Old Norse sigils for bravery. This is an excellent ritual to perform on a Full Moon and, if desired, can easily be done in a celebratory fashion with a trusted fellow Witch friend.
It is often said that we are our own worst enemy. Our own destructive thoughts and inner torment cause us to make poor life choices, manifest dysfunctional relationships, and trip over our own feet.
Why are we manifesting unwanted repetitive cycles and behaviors? Often times, these are learned behaviors, coping strategies that have become ways to deal with stressful situations. Somewhere along the way in life, whether it be in early childhood or adulthood, you may have learned that doing these behaviors helped to relieve distress.
Self-defeating habits include fear of taking healthy risks, negative self-talk, inability to ask for help, obsessing about perfection, people-pleasing (at the cost of your own happiness), self-guilt or feeling undeserving... and the most common: procrastination.
The goal now is to break harmful cycles by replacing those maladaptive behaviors with spiritual tools of energy balancing.
When a friend or family member is struggling with sickness, emotional turmoil, or an unpleasant life situation, use this Sacred Power Blessing Ritual to surround them with energies of strength, and love. This ritual goes beyond "sending positive vibes," as the recipient will instinctually feel the presence of your energy and the newfound resonance of your blessing. This can be the catapult for your loved one to make real change and real progress in their lives.
Alternatively, this Sacred Power Blessing Ritual may be performed on yourself and can be customized based on the exact situation at hand - see notes below.
Best Time to Perform
This spell is best performed three nights in a row, leading up to the Full Moon. If, however, you feel the situation is urgent, don't delay and do not wait for the proper moon phase!
You Will Need:
The full moon is not only the most magickally potent and powerful time of the month, but it is also the most physically stimulating. As the moon affects the ocean tides, so too does it affect our bodies. If you pay close attention to your body, you may have noticed that on the mornings leading up to the full moon and a couple of days thereafter, you may feel extra swollen or puffy. These are the days of maxi dresses, under-eye concealer and perhaps an inclination to wear less rings on your fingers.
During the full moon it is vitally important to stay well-hydrated...especially with quality water! Because of how our bodies react during the full moon, this full moon beauty water ritual is a great way to nourish your cells and encourage a vibrant, glowing complexion. From the inside out!
