Greetings, lovelies. Welcome to my small section of the site. I am the current Priestess of the Air Element group here on SoM. If you have any questions about it, feel free to mail me or my Priest, Pixa.
I'm a 27 year old wife and mother. I am a nature enthusiast and avid gardener. I am overly sarcastic, indifferent, introverted, have an unhealthy love of chocolate and coffee, and spend far too much time watching TWD. I am currently finishing up my degree in Early Childhood Education, and hope to go for a Masters in Horticulture. My end goal is to teach Horticulture classes.
In Regards to Myself & Magic:
Lonicera, here. It is neither my real name nor my actual Eke name, but one I am known as around the site and online Pagan communities. You can call me Loni, Lily, or Misa. Any of those are fine. I am genderfluid and do not really identify one way or the other as either male or female. I do not mind if you refer to me as one or the other, personally. He, She, it's all the same to me.
I am a follower of Kemeticim and have been practicing magic for 15 years. Bast, Anpu, and Hathor our my deities.
I am an energy and crystal healer and hope to get my certification in level 1 Reiki healing in August of this year.
I am very hands on when it comes to magic, and greatly enjoy working with sigils, poppets, and other physical representations of my will. I find them useful tools, and greatly enjoy making them.
I do a great deal of work with bones, herbs, stones, and related materials. Much of my work falls within the spectrum of Hedgecraft, though I am eclectic in actual magical practice. I work with blood magic, sigils, curses, healing, and things in between.
I am slightly sensitive and can feel and pick up on the presence of spirits. I have also worked with various spirits and entities over the years, and find much of my practices consist of ritual work and communion with these spirits, as opposed to actual spells. Granted, I do spellwork when I feel the need to do so, but it is not something I feel a necessity. There is more to magical practice than spells, after all.
That said, I am of Irish and Scottish ancestry, thus have experience with and work with several spirits and entities from my homeland. Among them are: Ancestral spirits, guides & guardians, Fae, elementals.
If you are new to magic and spell casting, the site has several amazing threads to help answer your questions and get you started. I've add the links for those threads below.
