Making and Using Poppets in Magic

I’ve been making dolls since I was just a little freckle-faced kid. I guess it was because I could. I saw faces and personalities in everything. I made pom pom dolls with yarn. I made corn husk dolls. I carved faces in apples and let them dry. I wrapped dried corn cobs in long grass. I saw people in the shapes of flowers and trees. I made paper dolls and cloth rag dolls. As an adult I’ve made art dolls, mixed media, beaded, assembled, folk dolls. Most recently, I make Spirit dolls. So, of course, I make poppets. Poppets are...

Uncrossing or How to Lift a Curse

I received an interesting phone call the other day. A friend of my sons has found himself in an interesting conundrum of which he wasn’t familiar. He believed there was a curse put on him. My son listened to him, like a good friend and admitted it was something that would be more up my ally, so they called. The friend, I’ll just call him the Poet, was informed by his ex that she put a binding spell on him and he wanted to know what to do to take it off. His time with this woman had been chaotic...

If you could climb into Cerridwen's Cauldron......?

Are you familiar with the Celtic Goddess Cerridwen? I confess that I’d only just heard of her up until last week. Over the last couple weeks, between anxiety attacks and deep sea diving, I’ve been formulating an idea for a group page, one that followed the energies around the Wheel of the Year and focused on symbols prevalent in each season…......and I apologize, explaining how my brain works is really boring and possibly dangerous.......

So What are Spirit Dolls, Anyway?

So, What are Spirit Dolls? How are they made? What makes them so special? I’ve just recently been informed that some magical practitioners use, dolls, either factory made or handmade, as a vessel to bind Spirits. I don’t know exactly how they do it or what it means or how you use it. The idea brings up visuals of Robin Williams as the Genie in the Lamp *10,000 years in a lamp will give you such a crick in the neck* *you totally heard his voice, didn’t you!*   That’s not what my dolls are. I feel like if I...
