So, why do you write these strong women characters?
Because equality is not a concept. It’s not something we should be striving for. It’s a necessity. Equality is like gravity, we need it to stand on this earth as men and women, and the misogyny that is in every culture is not a true part of the human condition. It is life out of balance and that imbalance is sucking something out of the soul of every man and women who’s confronted with it. We need equality, kinda now.

Oh no problem!! :) I’m honestly so nervous about making posts though, I’m still such a newbie to tumblr imo, so I definitely don’t want to mess up anything in someone else’s blog! lol
But yay happy to contribute :))))
Wanted to share something that I’ve been doing for many years. It’s super simple and anyone can do it, witch or not! No extra tools necessary :)
If you’re feeling down or want to rid negativity, bad thoughts, things of that sort; Take a shower. Or a bath. But usually this works best with a shower because it’s easier to visualize everything pouring down the drain.
Simply do what you do as normal, but visualize the water as a pure source of Water, of Light, the Universe/whatever -that can cleanse. As the water runs over your hair and body, imagine the negativity rinsing down, out of you. It pours down the drain to be grounded by the earth, and you have this pure guiding force filling you with positive energy. Let the water clear you of negative thoughts, aches, worries. Imagine it all go away.. Let the water fill you with positive thoughts, think of your dreams and hopes pouring back into you. You can follow-up with some meditation or other relaxing exercises.
You’d be surprised how rejuvenated you should feel afterwards! You could probably enhance the experience by lighting incense or a candle in the bathroom that can relate to purifying or even cleanse with some natural soaps made with, or scented with an herb that can help clear negativity.
If you choose to take a bath to help purify, you may make a small packet of herbs to add to the bath. Here is a wonderful post about Ritual baths from somekitchenwitchery. If you aren’t afraid of clogging the drain, you could boil several herbs together and then dump them straight into your bath water. Saw an example of this in a documentary I recently found available on Youtube, it starts here. It’s called the Real Witch Project, and was made in the UK. The bath scene is in Part3, which can be viewed here.
Personally, I think baths are definitely better fit to enhance or fill you with an intent. And really good for healing! As you lay in the water you can just let the intent and scents seep into you. I feel a shower is better fit for purifying, especially for the visualization aspect. As a teenager I used to shower and then follow-up with a long bath to relax, so you could do something similar if it’s available to you.
Either way, this is super simple and can be helpful for anyone that has a lot on their mind. Have fun with it, add to it or do whatever you feel is best for you. Good luck!!
