How to Create a Sacred Water Altar

I felt I needed to do more.  I had signed petitions.  Lit candles. Offered prayers. And yet it still felt like it wasn’t enough.  The Cosmic Cookie Trail led me to the following blog post on how to create a sacred water altar.  THIS.  It was exactly what my soul seemed to call out to do.  It incorporates the four elements within the altar in a way I had not considered.  Now where did I put the beautiful glass lotus bowl my friend Daisy gave me…….

Earth Elemental Associations

Animals: Most animals from forests and woods and animals that are active at night. Wolves, bears, etc. Colors: Olive, black, citrine, russet Court cards: Pages Function: Reliability, stability, greedy, boring, materialistic. Leprechauns: A type of Irish fairy sacred to Earth, sometimes known as the ‘wee folk’. These aren’t the cute sort- they’re capable of great evil just as we are, and tend to be tricksters, lustful, and mean. Leprechauns are said to drink heavily and are shoemakers. If you can find a leprechaun and catch him, you can take his gold… unless you get tricked out of letting him go. Yes, leprechauns are usually said to be males, and loners at that. Long ago, shoemakers were traditionally male, so for the culture it makes sense. Qualities: Cold, dry, excessively heavy. Unyielding, stubborn, passive, malleable, patient and ignorant. Obscurity, excessive solidity, and rest or stillness. Sense: Touch Stones: Quartz, rock salt. Tarot trump: The Devil, The Empress, The Emperor, The World. Tibetan failing: Pride.

Tibetan wisdom: The wisdom of equality. Time of day: Midnight. Trolls: Quite the fearsome creatures, trolls. Though in the modern day most trolls are nothing more than an online pest, this race from Norse mythology is related to “trolleri”, the Swedish name for a kind of magic intended to do harm. They aren’t intelligent, but it’s clear one doesn’t need to be intelligent to cause harm. They have tough skin and regeneration powers, and will eat anything including metal and bone. The only way to stop them is to burn them, and their eating habits lead them to a disgusting sort of attack: vomiting on their target. Types of magic: Grounding, prosperity, ancestor worship, fertility, plant magic. Zodiac: Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo

Draconic Magic to seek a Dragon Guide – The Study Of Dragon Magic.

Dragon Magic could be defined as using the aid of a Dragon while working Magic.
The power of Dragons can be a great influence not only in one’s Magical working, but in day to day life as well.

What is Dragon Magic?
Dragons are often called on as guardian spirits. They make for exceptional allies who can be called on in times of need, for protection or guidance. Dragon Magic, like all Magic is made up in its base form from the five main elements that exist throughout the known universe, Fire, Wind, Earth, Air and Spirit. When using Dragon Magic you are in fact calling forth an element in its Dragon form.

Each element and its Dragon has certain Magical qualities, moods and purpose. Each also has positive and negative traits which much be dealt with. Male and female dragons may appear to represent any element, however, Fire and Air are positive energies while Water and Earth are negative energies. It is a form of magic reaching the essence, the wisdom of the Dragons. It is a branch of magic, a specialization. Dragon magic it is said, is one of the oldest magical workings in the world.

What is a Dragon Guide?
A Dragon guide is a  form of spirit guide. What is a spirit guide? The Indians have long found a connection within nature, a guardian that follows them through life, once found to remain by their side. There are many different forms of guidance people reach for. Some people follow Jesus or God, various ancient Gods and Goddesses, Celtic, Egyptian, Norse, Roman. Others reach to Fairies or Angels, Dolphins so why not Dragons?. Tarot, Runes, Crystal Balls, even the Bible, all these are used for the purpose of reaching what most believe is a higher being, a force of ascendance. At some point in their lives most people, even if they do not admit it, look beyond into the mists of spirituality for help, advice or guidance in whatever form they believe in.

In no way is Dragon magic easy or simple. It requires great inner strength and immense patience to walk the path of the Dragon. They are part of the energy found all around us. You may never see them but you may, eventually, feel their presence. This will take time and much practice. A Dragon befriends only to those who are deemed to be worthy and will only show themselves if they are sure that they can trust you.. Dragons are long-lived and with age comes wisdom and patience. Dragons are creatures of wisdom and knowledge, and provided great protection and can lend great power when needed. If you take the time to forge a friendship with Dragons they can become the best companions you would ever want.
Connecting With Dragons…

Coral and the Cosmic Cookie Trail

Sometimes something just comes into my awareness enough that I need to pay attention and do some research!  The Cosmic Cookie Trail led me to Coral today.  One of my friend’s on Facebook posted a really nice photo of the two Coral pieces she was making into jewelry.  Continuing on the Cosmic Cookie Trail it next led me to another friend and her post.  She posted a photo of herself wearing a Coral top and how much she liked it. Now stay with me here….I read these two posts one right after the other!  The synchronicity of it was too much to ignore.  I decided to do a little research and came upon this blog post listing the metaphysical properties of Coral.  You can read the blog post at the following link:
