20160323_090622It has taken me forever to get this review up but it is finally up so here we go…

This book is for those who have a love of gardening and a flair for alchemy. If you don’t like either, then leave this book to those who do.

So we have moved past the introduction and into the first chapter which is Working with Plants. It gives you the basic guidelines in how not to harm the plants when picking them, dealing with poisonous plants and the normal warnings. Now for me personally, I am allergic to 23 varieties of grass, 20 types of trees and life itself (recently), so yeah I have to severely modify what I can do and live through my mother who I am giving this book to when she starts her garden in a couple weeks.

Next is the Herbalist’s Tool & Pantry, it gives you a rundown of items that you need to purchase and store separate from your regular kitchen tools. The preparation for harvesting the plants are written in great detail and laid out easily in front of you.

Making Oils/Oleums Philtres, and the Teas, Elixirs, and Tinctures chapters are basically your meat and potatoes, in understanding how to make what you need without burning yourself or screwing up or even killing yourself. It states throughout the book not to drink poisonous mixes, so if you do and die, well you were warned dumb ass. Now my favorite method in this section is the salves and sprays, as this will be how I will do a lot of my mixes. Having that quick Daemonic spray for workings will be very handy in the upcoming months.

In Preparing Herbal Mixtures for Incense chapter, you can get down and dirty by hand-making your incense. I am lazy so I will be buying mine. Though I will charge them like I normally do.

In the Other Preparations chapter, you have the uses for bath salts, soaps and candle uses. This will be a good one to keep in the self. Having bath salts is perfect for when you want to purify before a ritual.

Plant Reference section, is pretty explanatory. It gives a very generous list (14 pp.) of magickal plants and what they can be used for. The same for the Bases section and Miscellany Magickal Recipes and Random Daemons.

The next three chapters are my favorite: Cursing Recipes, Death Daemonic Recipes and Divination Recipes. Ahhh, the love I have for these three keeps me warm at night.

The next few chapters Magickal Inks, Dukante Hierarchy Recipes, Goetic Hierarchy Recipes, and Grimoirium Verum Recipes gives you more than enough hands on experience to keep you busy for a few months trying them out.

Rituals sections are always a win/win in my book with, any Occult read I pick up. There are nine healthy rituals, love the number, that will keep you busy and build your energy up when working with charging your mixtures.

The second to last section, The Magickal Gardener, I skimmed through. I kill plants you heard me, not on purpose, but because I am so absolutely horrible in Gardening that Satan and Eury told me to take a seat. No lie, I suck ass at gardening, but my mother has a green thumb and can grow anything. This has all types of tips and hints in growing your garden so it is good to take heed and take notes.

Last section is a list of resources to grow your magickal library so you can have a basement like mines; that literally has books on tables, shelves, chairs, the washer and dryer and every square inch of floor. Actually if I could float, I would be able to go into my basement. Seriously, a lot of books.

This book is a wealth of information, filled with recipes, rituals, formulas, and tried and true favorites that I love. So get online, order a few few friends and enjoy your summer trying out some of the philtres and tinctures. Try not to cut a finger, blow up your alchemy set up, or poison you neighbor (well unless, you know). Enjoy the read and have fun. I know I am.

So here is my chakra healing for those following the blog

I do really intense chakra workings. Always have. I am doing a chakra healing that is like whooping my ass but it is so worth it. I have my chakras divided up into zones in which each deity controls a part of it. What I have been doing I have been working on for over a year in just getting the information and reading all the shit that I need to obtain to make my own Pathworking.

So share time lol.

For my first Chakra its for my being, my all, my clarity, and my protection. So I am working with Satan, Baelzebouth, Hecate, Lilith, Lucifer, Leviathan, and Belial. Which means I have six other zones in addition to the root that I a working with. I work with the Deities strength and attributes, as well as the color an vibrations.

My second chakra is for my feminine mystery, beauty, strength and compassion. Inanna, Oshun, Persephone, Rhiannn, Quan Yin and Ishtar.

My third chakra is to work on my darkness, the abyss, death/gatewallking. It is with Aupep, Thanatos, Legba, Ogun, Esu.

My fourth chakra is to strengthen my family, my destiny and my life’s path. With Ausest, and Ausir, and Shay.

My fifth chakra is for my blood workings Vampiric wilds, Oracle work and Lemurian workings. Nehekbet, Serqet, Sekhmet, Nephthys, Gremory.

Notice there is no sixth or seventh because they are my strength. The chakras listed are ones that I am building up on. But that by no way means I am an easy target. I stay guarded and protected. You know there are always people who are always trying to find an edge on you. My pathworking is always complex and it has served me to be the best Satanist that I am. And I will continue to grow.

Back to Me

Well sort of. I still have a long way to go, but I am better than I was a few days ago. I have a weight lifted off of my heart and I can move forward and work on me. I can get up everyday and know that I, in the end, am the only person who can truly love me. We should never depend on someone else to love u, and there are those of us who do.

I got up this morning and did something I haven’t done in a couple weeks. My hair. I also decided to put on some makeup to get me back in the way I was years ago, when I was working as a makeup artist in California. I would get up in the morning, shower, do my hair, put on my makeup and then pick my outfit depending on the heels I wanted to wear that day. I no longer do that. I wear sweat pants and leggings, but none of my heels or dresses. It has been a rough time for me but hey, I got it known in my mind that I will move on and do better. I mean what else can we do but move forward.

My creativity seems to be coming back little by little. It only took me 20 minutes to do full makeup instead of 2 hours for my eyes. I am no longer fucking up meals in the kitchen, but moving effortlessly in my preparation and ideas. I am working on my projects a lot more, and getting back into school as I have a test due and haven’t really studied for it. I want to be more active in my photography school and find more subjects, but tending to deal with people is a headache. I am thinking about getting a puppy or a cat.

In a few months I will be with my family for a festival for the Samhain Sabbat. And I think I will be so happy, that my heart will over flow with joy.

Decisions, decisions

Posted in Important Posts with tags , , , , , , on 07/14/2013 by Keona-Mlh

With me finally deciding to take the time off to go back to college, its like being a senior in high school all over again. The colleges and universities to choose from, what to major in and the most important question, what will you d with your degree once you graduate. It’s all so much to comprehend.

The thing I chose to do is focus on what I really want to do. I know that through all my bitching and gripping, I want to help people. Work with their minds. See what makes them tick. Even deeper than that, I want to help them by any means necessary that is always natural. We give people up medication to suppress the problems instead of finding a way to get rid f them completely. All we do is drug people up so they forget their problems instead of working through them.

So guess what words came to my mind. Neurophysiology. Actually no, that was what I was originally going for. But I researched it even further and while it does touch on what I want it is not what I wanted. So then psychobiology and behavioral neuroscience popped in my head. That is it, rid upon them and yup found out what classes I need to take, what I can specialize in and I was like bam…I’m good. Wanting to work with people and help them through their psycho, social and emotional “disorders”. I use that term loosely because theses so called disorders we have is because of the poisons they put in our food and everything else we use. Doing it through spirituality/faith, a diet that is whole with plenty of nature time with less chemicals as possible in it along with treatments that don’t involve thousands of dollars a month that insurance won’t pay for a pack of 12 CD’s with a doctor talking smoothly on it lol. Just not my type of treatment and I know from first hand experience.

So I came up with this ingenious idea that I should double major in Psychology and Biology (a perfect combination) as well as a double minor n religious studies (theology) and health promotion (exercise science). I also need to add German to that list as well. Yeah its like I know right lol.

So my choices in institutions (haha) are the following
DC- Georgetown Univ, George Washington Univ, Catholic Univ of America, American Univ
TN- Belemont Univ
IL- Univ of Chicago, Univ of Ill

Seems like a good start. Though I am leaning more towards my home state.

I would love to see the faces od the people on the CUA campus when they notice my Satanic tattoo as you know someone will walking around a Catholic school lol.. So this week I have four days of campus tours and sitting down with admission counselors in trying to figure out how to work the majors in, how long it will take to complete my studies. How to transfer all my credits over and what not. But hey it should fun being on a campus at 32. Can’t get better than that.
