October 2020 Well here we are in the middle of Autumn and it is still hot outside. The leaves are very slow to turn and my Rosemary thinks it is spring again and is producing a second bloom. The country is all consumed with the Presidential Election and Covid 19. Both are trying to our nervous systems and producing massive amounts of stress. I’m trying to stay busy to keep myself from thinking about things too much. This last couple of weeks I have been busy re-stocking various stores inventories and re-stocking my herbs and supplies. One of the things I have been making a lot of lately (because it seems to fly off the shelves this time of year) is my Mirror Wash. This stuff is great especially if you have any mediumship tendencies. Most of you probably know that Mirrors can be portals, and this time of the year the veil is thin. And while many of you may know those facts sometimes there is a disconnect when it comes to realizing what that means. The veil is thin. Mirrors are portals. Put those two things together. That means that this time of the year, and again when Beltane rolls around spirits have an easier time crossing into this realm. If you are a medium (trained or not) you may have felt uneasy around mirrors. You may even have experienced more “activity” during this time of year. If you don’t know what to do about that it could scare you silly. So, I made Mirror Wash. It all came about when a spiritual counselor came to me with a problem or “condition.” She had a young girl who was one of her clients and the counselor asked me if there was anything I could recommend that would help the young girl. This young girl was a natural medium and was especially uncomfortable around mirrors. I began experimenting with concoctions that might help her and came up with Mirror Wash. You use this wash each time you clean a mirror (cut it with water or ammonia) and during the seasons when spirit is closer cover the mirror with black fabric. I use a black lace, but I am not bothered to much by ghosts except those who visit regularly. This young girl chose to use a heavier black cotton. She reported back to me in mid-November that she had not been bothered though out the season. So happy Fall, Happy Halloween and Happy Samhain. May the ghosts who visit you all be welcome and remember…Please Don’t eat the Hoodoo.
