You're just acting like a jerk at this point


its a stick with some stones on it, and if you cant take a little humor then there's not really much we can do about that I am not the only one who has noticed that there is quite a lot of scope for some innuendos in this thread




If all you can think of is Harry Potter magic and phallic symbols, maybe it's you who has the delusions.


really I am the one who is deluded?

yet you post this



Ritual magic is a use of repetition and will to change events. The wand is a way to invoke and address.


So according to you I am the one who is deluded yet you seem to be implying that this "magic wand" could be used to change events?

nice story dude.

if that ever actually works out for you let me know


And you are just a bunch of sticks with a flesh bag on top. Is that all you are or is there an intrinsic meaning beyond that? Seriously, you can't see the "whole is greater than the sum of its parts"?

And, yes, I believe in magic and witchcraft. I breath it, live it, sleep it, and sometimes eat it. And I'm letting you know now that it changes things in my life every day. The "magic wand" doesn't do that and that's where you are stuck in your role playing games. The wand represents air and fire and also can direct energies and invoke the elementals. There are several uses but no witch will ever claim they can shoot fireballs out of it.

It is people like you who project those assumptions on practitioners that give others the wrong impression about what esoteric tools actually do.

And don't think I can't take a joke. The rest on here were being funny about it and I have no problem. You were just being small minded and mean. Big difference.

Unless that stick with stones and strings on it is a living being then i don’t think your point really stands.




And, yes, I believe in magic and witchcraft.


That’s fine, I can respect your beliefs but saying that witch craft is real is like saying God is real, you can’t actually prove it.




And don't think I can't take a joke. The rest on here were being funny about it and I have no problem. You were just being small minded and mean. Big difference.


If you have taken offense at my jesting then I apologise if i have insulted your believes but I was not being “small minded” the majority of that post you were talking about was highlighting that the therapeutic effect the OP was talking about most likely came from the therapeutic effect of creating art.

I honestly can’t see how you find my comments more offensive than what others have posted but again if they have offended you I apologise.

That's an excellent combination of materials for a beginner's wand - or at least a wand that you're just breaking in.

ETA: On second thought, I can see from your responses that you really have no idea what you are doing. You're just having fun. Sorry for taking you seriously in this matter; these kinds of crafts demand a sort of respect for the energy the materials have to offer. Just as you wouldn't just randomly throw together a potful of chemicals, you don't want to unbalance the energy too much.

It's important to keep in mind exactly what you're intending to use the wand for when you select the crystals and wooden rod, and it's always a good idea to purify all of the components and protect them against negative influence before and after the final product in order to ensure that only your will is influencing it. You could also record the process in a special book. There's nothing like making a wand to kick off a new book of shadows.

I'm kind of experimenting, but the creating of it went somehow intuitive, I had the elements for quite a while now, and then two days ago came the idea, and it worked out so great. This there, and for this I have that, and it kind of fitted all.

I felt very good doing it, I felt progress.

I think the gems and crystals have more effect when you actually created something with them, than when you just put them in your pocket, or I might have been not so receptive for it.

Intuitive, I did like an initiation with it, as to make the combination of elements work as a whole I think. Well, I just do things with it. So today, I took the bus, to where I am now, I went walking and things are different (read better) I can say I had some issues, frustrations etc. There has been a huge relief, but I am still in the process. ?? I don't know. I try to have a good time.

I think what's funnier about this post (and those preceding it) was that I just now (like five minutes ago) just performed some dedications and then drew my lot for the day for some guidance. I was warned that I would be tempted to blow things out of proportions today. That would have came in handy before I read this thread. You are right about pushing my belief assumptions as the truth when I am annoyed when people of other faiths do that to me. I guess it's all a matter of tact over substance.

Sorry for being an anal jackass and thanks for apologizing. I'm over it if you are.

Great job Angle! I like it.

I'll share my husband's wand with you - it goes to show - it's not just you - creating magic wands!

He chose his wood from the walnut, and worked on it for the three days of the waxing to full, full, and waning away from full moon. I believe he said it took three months (nine days) to carve and finish. The whole affair was a full drawn out ceremonial creation of a sacred tool. Fun stuff.



Blessings,
Cirque

Have you discovered what kind of rocks these were?

I'm certainly glad the Wright brothers didn't feel the same way. Just as they and countless others have proven, science is merely witchcraft that has evolved beyond its esoteric zygote state. And honestly, I'm appreciative of that in that our species has never really shown itself capable of possessing power without abusing it.

It occurs to me that our greatest strength may reveal itself to be the ability to do the most with the least. We don't need power, so much as imagination. And if you really look at it, I think you'll find that imagination is, in fact, the most critical factor in any form of witchcraft. Any idea that can be defined, any idea that can be communicated, is an idea that can be understood and acted upon. And that, to me, is the greatest form of magic - to invoke change through yourself.

We ourselves are the most potent channels of creative power in the entire realm of the craft, and we command our own power of creativity. Everything else is merely power. We are the intent. And that makes us the greatest and most dangerous tool of all.

A wooden wand is like a battery, it stores your energy for you and releases it when you will it.

This has been known for a very long time, like the saying touch wood. the reason you get an itchy hand is because of the energy build up, you can release this excess energy by touching wood.

Herbs can be used in a similar way either a branch or made into a pouch, me personaly, i use my doors on my house, you just have to remember as you touch the object you choose only to think and feel love harmony, peace and in my case by touching the doors i add protection from negativity and harm.

Its a lovely wand protect it and maybe ad a little charm to it, whom ever may come across this wand and feel the urge to touch it, let them feel love and content but deny them to charge it.

children are like animals they are attracted to the energy and i think its unwise to discourage them from touching or wanting to learn about it. so in this way you wont have a panic attack if someone wants to touch it, its ok.

you could also add the circle of life, you may know it as the pentacle or pentagram.

this is my protection i use.

light of fire without you there is no life
nutrients of earth without you there is no life
cleansing of water without you there is no life
breath of air without you there is no life
love of spirit without you there is no life

continue by connecting all life to form the circle of life.

Love and harmony

Beautiful work. Did he use "Passing the River" for the cipher on the engravings? I can't quite place the script.

Hi AfterInfinity,

I asked him, and he said this: "While a wand can come from many trees - a fruit or nut bearing tree is usually most desired. When I went into the woods to look for my wand, I spent time meditating under the tree in which I wanted to take a branch. The oak didn't accept, so I bowed gracefully and moved on to another tree. The walnut tree accepted my request", he states, "and offered me one of it's branches. Pouring water over the area and explaining to the tree what I was about, I cut the branch, thanked the tree, and mudded the cut to aid in it's healing."

So the tree choose him.
There of was prayer, thanks, meditation involved as this was a ritual working. But much of that is specific to my husband's interests and belief set and he's pagan/shamanic in his methodology. It'd be a long post indeed to outlay the specifics.

A note to add, as I'm the family researcher - in Celtic symbolism all nut bearing trees are thought to be sacred. These trees are holders of sacred knowledge. Now in Greek myth, Artemis who was gifted with the second sight was transformed into the walnut tree. So the tree itself and things it bares is associated with the Goddess. Since nothing else grows around this tree it's known to Italy as the "Tree of Witches". Rumor has it a walnut tree will yield a better crop of nuts if beaten!
But you will suffer a harsh winter to come... rumor has it. (Signs&Symbols Sourcebook by Adele Nozedar).

He said he went back out to the tree after the wand was finished and presented the wand to the tree - and checked on the wound cut the branch from - which had knotted up nicely over the months he took in the creation of his work.

To the shaman, the wand is an extension of himself - a measure of wisdom, imagination, and spiritual ability.

Blessings,
Cirque

He Cuervo,

I believe it's from the Greater Key of Solomon which rather mundanely translates to "Cut a green young branch".

I'll show you what I mean about the similarities of it being on the side.

The one on the left was the one made for my daughter and the other was the one for me. I originally wasn't going to make one for me but the tree that gave the branch to my daughter had more to give so I utilized it.





Seriously, I've never thought about making one with a quartz in the fork like that and now I see yours. I'll take it as a sign that they were both inspired to be.

With the proper rituals, most anything can be charged into a power object.

I like wire coat hangers and bicycle spokes wrapped in duct tape. snappy little units!!!

IF you have crystals treat them with respect. Or they will leave you.

Trust me i had to learn this the hard way. And me. Losing a one of a kind rare stone in my room really upset me A LOT considering the stone was worth 80$ IN ITS ROUGH CONDITION.

here il show you a picture. There was a natural formation of a green eye in the rock it was insain. The rock also banished people from my life and ill harm. Sent people to Jail. Made my exs vagina bleed and sent her to the hospital. It ruins peoples lives and i kinda loved that rock because when i had it people Legit thought i was a warlock or something ( which i am SHH ) But without further adue il show you my fire agate.

Its a very rare, youd have to order some online or physically go to mexico if you want one because there is only 2 mines in the whole world you can get this rock, and both of them are in mexico or near it.



See the green eye in it? The camera quality is really bad because this particular type of stone is extremely hard to photograph.



And this stone actually worked im not #ting you. It literally messed peoples lives up. It punishes them if they lie to me or try to manipulate me.

This is my particular stone, my soul stone. It vibrates with the resonating power of 9

Introduction to the Meaning and Uses of Fire Agate

Fire Agate, known as the spiritual flame of absolute perfection, carries a great mystery locked inside its deep brown crystal. You need only touch the stone and fiery embers ignite. Peer into its depths and flames leap within its chambers. Study it closely and it will almost show you its secrets. Almost.

Fire Agate is a variety of Chalcedony, a mineral of the Quartz family. It has a translucent deep reddish-brown base, with flashes of orange, red, green and gold that appears as living flames within the gem. Its iridescent colors are caused by light interference on thin layers of iron oxide or limonite crystals within the Chalcedony.

Historically, Fire Agate was used in alchemy because it was believed to contain the essence of fire. In many traditions sacred to fire deities, it encouraged timid adults and shy children to speak up and not be ignored or bullied. It is a stone of integrity, encouraging high standards of behavior in self and others, and promotes passion in love and in life. [Eason, 69]

Metaphysically, Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones, but is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence. [Simmons, 6] Fire Agate provides a steady, vibrant energy that stimulates a zest for living. It awakens the lower chakras and lights one's inner fires of Life Force, creativity, sexuality and will. It brings back to focus the Divine blueprint of one's life purpose and increases the pleasures in everyday life.




Mystical Properties For those who believe in mystical lore, fire agate offers some unique properties, according to Crystals and Jewelry. This stone is used during spells to aid communication, both speaking and writing. Those who have issues with writing or public speaking may find their fears dissipating if they are wearing a piece of fire agate jewelry. Old stories claim that the fire agate contains the power to stop gossip, relieve fear and avert any harm. Read more: Properties of Fire Agate | eHow www.ehow.com...



Unusual Properties

The fire agate has properties that are unlike many other gem stones, including others in the agate family. The fire agate is thus named because a well-polished one will look like there is a fire burning within the stone. A fire agate creates an optical illusion of more depth and an interesting combination of color within the stone.


Scientific Properties

The fire agate stone is in the same family as quartz. It has a specific gravity of 2.57 to 2.64 and a index of refraction of 1.53 to 1.55. A fire agate's hardness ranks 6.5 to 7 on the Moh's scale of hardness. This puts it on the upper end of the middle range. The color of the stone varies greatly from stone to stone. Many of them are even colored by artificial means to create a more consistent color.
