Pumpkin Knights thoughts of the ouija board

I've seen, studied, and used meany forms of divination and ouija boards is the one I have the most mixed feelings about. I'm not going to tell you that if you use it a demon is going to enter nose and make you read harry potter or anything crazy like that, but the fact of the matter is their a lot of things that can go wrong when using it.

what separates it from tarot, runes, dice, and varied forms of other tool related divination is it also requires an outside spiritual entity to work. with the proper training and protection you could have yourself a very powerful tool. without.....well theirs a reason it has the reputation it does.

one of the biggest problems is that most people who use it do not take it s seriously. you should never "play" with something like that. but I'm not saying you should never use one, just realize what your doing. as soon as you decide to use the board your believing in it "might work" or else things like that would lose it's magic.

if you are going to use one here are some tips on making it safer:

1: know who or what your trying to contact.
never ever ever just throw up and open ended invite, its just not a good idea. pick out someone of something you would like to talk to before you even think of trying it. and even then stay on guard and weary.

2:bring protection
get some sort of amulet or talsimen such as a cross, ankh, pentagram, saint medallion, or something of the nature. keep salt,sage or holy water near.

3:be careful who you use it around
things like this pick up on a lot. someone putting off some bad vibes could be a really bad thing.

4: trust your gut
if something seems off then it probably is. say goodbye to whatever your talking to and put the board away.

5: treat your tool with respect, store it properly
most divination tools are stored it black bags or cloths. black it thought to keep out outside energys while your tool is not in use. also keeping a small quartz crystal with it is not a bad idea. if your board ever begins to feel wrong listen to rule 4 and retire it and get a new one.

hope this helps!

Finaly-A Halloween miracle

as many of you might have noticed I've been gone for a bit.this has been because of bad luck and a lost password.

about a week after my last post my life dumped a cup of soda on my laptop (on accident). after some choice words and banning open cups from the bedroom, I tried and save the poor little laptop. it didn't work, the thing was dead as a doorknob.

we got me a new one a few weeks later and the first thing I was going to do was update the blog. did you know blogs require passwords? I had forgot this fact, my computer kept my password memorized so I didn't have to. I had forgotten the password!

I went to find my password list (always a good idea) and was just not having any luck. so I asked fox about it. she thinks for a sec then tells me she had spilled something on it and tossed it out a few months before this! the password gone, things looked grim for the fate of this blog. killed by fox's clumsiness.

yesterday while looking for a Halloween decoration I found my password list. she didn't kill it!

The Land of Always October is back.

imbolc and groundhogs

Happy Imbolc!
if your not sure what that is check out shellhawks blog. she gives a great overview of it, that way I don't have too.

its also groundhog day and if you didn't know Phil says spring is comeing soon. so lets hope he is right because it's -20 without windchill here and that's just to darn cold.

I'm getting back to Halloween soon. it's just felt a little Septemberish in the land of always October. But it's getting better.
