Sigil for connecting with and working with Lilith

Sigil for Lilith

Every time I work with a Goddess to craft a sigil, I never know what’s going to come of it. I tend to have a vague idea of what I wish to do. It is they who guide the process though. Lilith is no different. She has a lot to say and we so much work to do!

The Sigil

I have spent some time over the last several days connecting with Lilith. Each time I would attempt to pull that sigil from the aether. Each time she told me, “Not yet”. I knew that in due time, it would come. There is a web of understanding that we must weave before we’re shown the way. There are pieces and parts that swirl in the dream world that eventually come together.

In trancework this morning, it came. A testament to the knowledge we must not rush the process. While it is “simple” it really isn’t. Each of us will see something different. As it is meant to be. Use this sigil to connect with her. To strengthen your work. Everything we are doing this month is a piece of a puzzle. Which you will see soon!

All of these pieces will come together in a beautiful working toward our body Sovereignty. She has awakened me fully. I am ready for what is to come. For the work that has come thus far for July, you can find it here.

Darkest Blessings,
Ivy

Soothe the Dragon Bath Tea

Soothe the Dragon Bath Tea

We have done a lot of work with Tiamat this month and, no doubt, there have been moments that have felt overwhelming. How many times have we told ourselves that we need to be practicing selfcare? Do you know what selfcare looks like in times like these? Where you are so overwhelmed? Where the Divine has messages that you must hear right this second?

What if I told you that it’s almost as simple as “Get in the tub”? It is, but with a twist.

I created this blend as I was working on a raffle prize for a local event happening in June. There are few measurements aside from the ancestors telling me when to stop. It ended up creating an entire quart jar, which I will use going forward. The items you need, you probably already have in your Apothecary.

What you need:

Chamomile
Rose Petals
Yarrow
Lavender
Salt (Epsom, Himalayan or Sea Salt works best. Use what you have.)
Mugwort
Drawstring teabags or Tulle bags to contain the plant material and make cleanup easy
A large bowl

I sat down with my herbs, bowl and bags and set out to work.

Add as little or as much as you feel called to add. The Mugwort I would go light on, because it can bring about visions. Visions while in water can be a bit tricky.

I added my herbs in the order above then mixed them with clean, dry hands. The colors and textures were just lovely to the touch. I use a stainless steel bowl, as it’s easily cleaned.

Aren’t those colors just gorgeous?

Once I felt it was mixed enough by closing my eyes and just being present, I got my bags and set to work filling them. A few teaspoons is all you need. You can do this ahead of time and bag up the entire bowl into your bags if you like. I would just caution that they need to go into an airtight container of some sort.

Once you’re done, they’ll look something like this, depending on the bags you’re using.

How to use your Soothe the Dragon Bath Tea:

When you wish to soothe the dragon, hang one of these so the water runs over the bag as you fill the tub. Then, luxuriate in the water for as long as you need. Once you’re done, you can either toss the entire bag, or wait for it to dry and dump the used herbs and reuse the bag.

It really is an incredible way to calm the mind. Let me know your experiences with crafting the tea and how it helps you to recenter and calm the storm that rages from time to time.

Amulet of the Dragon

Any object can become an amulet to connect with a specific Goddess. You will see two different pendants in this article for just that purpose. The 1st half will walk you through cleansing what will become your Tiamat amulet. The 2nd part, by Kaycee, will give you the method for actually keying it to the Goddess you’re working with.

What you will need:

  • A tray or picture frame
  • Salt of your choosing
  • Selenite
  • Mugwort
  • Dragon’s blood (resin, self-lighting incense, or ash from incense sticks. Use what you have!)
  • The item to turn into the amulet

Just a basic black tray or a picture frame. I used some Dark Moon water and lightly wiped the surface. With every step of the creation, you want to direct cleansing white light at each item. We’re removing all the energy from the surfaces so we may start fresh.

Sprinkle the surface with your salt and let it sit for 3-5 minutes before continuing to the next step. We want the salt to take any residual energy in.

Once you feel like the salt has done its job, you want to add your Selenite. I have a zodiac wheel charging disk that I decided to use.

Again, give it 3-5 minutes resting on the bed of salt. Our tools want to work for us, we need to give them time for the intended task.

Next, we’re going to sprinkle a bit of Mugwort over the salt and the Selenite. As important as it is to cleanse our amulet of residual energies, it is JUST as important to have a bit of built-in protection. Mugwort has so many lovely uses. If you are in an area that it’s possible, grow your own! Just keep it in a pot unless you want a Mugwort yard.

Our final step, is to add the object we’re creating the amulet from and a bit of Dragon’s Blood. This is where that white, cleansing light is most necessary. Even if you’re using a brand new object, it carries energies with it. So think of it as blasting out the miasma of everyone and everything that touched it, from production to sale. You want to break those cords.

Here is what my working tray looked like once I had it all added together.

From here, you want to move your tray to a place where it won’t be disturbed. There is an energy exchange that happens as the cleansing takes place and the protection is infused. Leave it, undisturbed for 72 hours, before moving on to creation as an amulet

With Darkest Gratitude,
