I’ve heard some people refer to Hermès as a god of sleep, but whenever I try and research it I can’t find anything that talks about him in that particular role. Is this just others upg or is it historically founded? Any info on the subject would be much appreciated.
Sound- this is a method of cleansing using sound vibrations to break up and clear negative energy, from a space. ( Bells, wind chimes, clapping, singing bowl, ect.)
Smoke cleansing- Using the smoke of plants/herbs to cleanse. Use a plant that corresponds with your needs. One very well know plant is white sage this plant cleanses all energy from the space.
Salt- You can place salt in family spaces to cleanse the energy from the space. I put salt on my alter to keep my space cleansed. You can also use it to cleanse objects by setting them in the salt.
Crystal- You can carry crystalswith you to cleanse your energy throughout the day. You could set crystals on an object to cleanse it as well. Selenite is a good crystal for cleansing it doesn't need to be charged and it can be used to cleanse.
Sun and moon- Let the light soak up all the energy by letting the light shine on it. (Open a window to clear your space, walk outside under the sun or moon to cleanse your self, set an object in the sun/moon though the day or over night to cleanse it.)
Elements-put whatever you are cleansing in the element to cleanse it. (Soak or sprinkle with water, pass through flames, pass through smoke, sprinkle or bury in the dirt.)

I agree that there are differences between hero worship and pop culture paganism, but I think this is another case of people considering anything modern in Hellenism “sacrilegious” while anything ancient is automatically authentic. Never mind that in Ancient Greece those things were modern. As respectful as that ask was, no one has the right to tell other Pagans what or what not to do. It’s just not their place.
I do agree with you in a general sense since I am often the target of people trying to tell me how to worship and that my modernization of my devotion is disrespectful.
However I do still think in this case I was in the wrong. That comparison was a bad one which is really all I took from that ask. I didn’t really see it as them trying to tell me what to do. I still think that worshipers have the right to decide for themselves how they approach Hero Cult and the Heroes (like whether they see them as real people or otherwise) But I think trying to equate two separate and distinct practices such as Hero Cult and Pop Culture Paganism does both a disservice. I think there were far better and more accurate ways for me to have went about that topic.

Baneful magic is a touchy subject, lots of people believe its evil and shouldn't be done. I do perform baneful magic. All people are different and so are their morals. I dont push my morals on others and I wish others didn't either, but they do.
I will never tell a witch to do baneful magic, but if you are a beginner practitioner be cautious when doing it. I did baneful magic since the beginning of my practice, and it can have consequences. Remember to use proper protection if you do any baneful magic.
•Please just be careful•
4 types of baneful magic
●Warning this is my own definition for it others my have slightly different definitions●
Curse: An act of baneful magic that causes long-term or permanent/to generational harm
Hex: An act of baneful magic that causes short-term or temporary harm
Jinx: An act of baneful magic that doesn't cause harm but will cause severe to minor annoyance/inconvenience
Banishing: The act of magically expelling energies, entities, or people.
Binding: The act of magically restraining something or someone.
Goddess on the mountain top, and Venus was his name…
I saw this image in a dream once and needed to express it some way somehow, I don’t know if this is a sign that Venus is calling me or if I am just overthinking my dreams, but I do hope for answers soon.
I am planning on starting a mentorship program in the greater Hartford CT area. Depending on interest, I may be willing to accept up to 3 new witches who are looking for an in depth, year and a day introduction to Wicca and Witchcraft. I am planning a minimum of one session per month (possibly more) for the group with additional one on one sessions and we will celebrate all major holidays together. The program is a Year and a Day Dedication to learning the craft culminating in an Initiation ceremony.
I will provide all study materials including a binder created specifically by me for this program. During the Year & A Day program the Dedicants will also receive whatever they need to get their own practice started including herbs, oils, gemstones and more.
At this point I would like to gauge interest and start setting up appointments to meet those who feel like a good fit. I am very careful when choosing dedicants for the program as it is important to me that, not only we get along but, the group as a whole can function in a way that fosters trust, compassion and encouragement.
I have been a practicing Witch for more than 20 years now and was initiated into a local Wiccan group 15 years ago. I've spent many a fair and festival season traveling around New England as a vendor with my small business and have had the opportunity to meet and make magick with amazing people like Lilith Dorsey, Courtney Weber, Chris LaFond and Kirk White. I've reached a point in my life where I believe it is my calling to teach young and new witches all that I've learned. Please feel free to ask any questions you like and I'll do my best to answer them.
