We hope October is amazing with pumpkins, ghost stories, and Samhain coming up. We understand that aside of wonderful spookylicious events and activities, college midterms are definitely around in this month. Y~ I~ K~ E~S!
Asides from good study habits and a disciplined schedule, please allow some time to breathe for yourself. It is definitely difficult considering we were on a “regular pace” in the pre-pandemic era. Nonetheless, we are transitioning to a slower sense of movement that can be interpreted as out of one’s control. There are not enough words to describe the current energy as it feels a bit chaotic mixed with hope.
However, a balanced regimen of scientific practices of mental health and magick could help you to ace one day at a time. A disclaimer, of course, magick is essential to the soul and spirit, however, if you feel anything out of norm, we would definitely urge you to contact with your health provider before any consumption of herbs. After all, we want you to feel better and not otherwise.
One of our officers held a Bath Magick 2 weeks ago, and we will share one of the recipes for raising the mood which is listed as bellow. This is a generational recipe of her family which she kindly wanted to share.
RAISE ENERGY BATH MAGICK RECIPE
3 spoons of carnation petals
2 spoons of lavender flowers
2 spoons of rosemary leaves
2 cups of basil leaves
2 liters of water or 8.45 cups
Bathe in this water consecutively for 3 days
**Now, notice how it has exact measurements, but you can fill a tub with the concentrated bath magick and then pour it.
We hope that this recreation of bath magick into your life could alleviate weights on your shoulders for a bit and help you see clarity. We also hope to see you in our Zoom meetings as well. If for whatever reason, you cannot attend, then our blogs would be weekly updated for you. Stay spooky and safe!
Welcome back, Longhorns! We hope you had a safe and socially distant first day of school.
The University of Texas is allowing clubs and organizations to meet on campus this semester with certain restrictions. The Campus Life and Engagement section state “These guidelines promote safer student life activities and UT events whether fully or partially online, on campus or in outdoor spaces. This includes meetings of student organizations, recreational sports activities and other student gatherings of various sizes. These guidelines will be available when students return in August.” The guidelines mentioned can be found here: https://utexas.app.box.com/s/4py7o3yry9p0aq2u6cki2tzq43kqf58u.
Even though UT is allowing on campus meetings, Pagan Student Alliance will be hosting all meetings virtually through Zoom. We’re doing this in order to 1) make sure that all members are safe and 2) be able to include members that are not able to come to campus (whether they’re concerned for their or someone else’s health or aren’t physically in Austin).
Here is the Zoom link for today’s meeting. See you at 6:30p!
Topic: PSA 1st Meeting: Open House
Time: Aug 26, 2020 06:30 PM Central Time (US and Canada)
This week, we’ll be talking about three essential tools that every Pagan should know; ground, center, and shield (GSC).
This is another Pagan 101 topic that is important to newcomers to know. This is what you should do before you do any spell work or participate in a ritual. If you wanna learn more about what is GCS and how to do it, come by this Wednesday September 18 at 6:30 pm in BEN 1.126.
