altar advice?
By:
Post # 1
I am currently working on an altar for Selena and Lupa, and later on a work altar for Apollo. Right now I have a small table that I am going to stain, and paint the top with my own special design in acrylic paint. Does anyone know if staining the wood a dark color (to match my bookcase) will effect the energy? The top will have a very...meaningful representation, so that wouldn't effect anything would it? I know very little about all this but I'm learning slowly, and carefully. Any insight would be amazing.

No way,it wont effect anything
Fill you alter with things that will spark your emotions and focus your energy and elements,Saints demons,the tools of your path etc

I didn't think it would, but I wanted to make sure. I guess you could say the way I plan to do things is old fashioned, I like to make everything by hand or put actual effort into it. To me, this opens more..umm paths(?) For more energy and power. I may not know much, but I do know things you put effort into have greater power than those that are simply bought.

Ah, I have an aloe plant that will be on mine, along with a stuffed bear my grandmother gave me. And my necklaces, a moon for Selena, And a wolf/lycan tooth for Selena. I have inherited every bit of knowledge from my ancestors, which the main thing is: Everything which effort is put into, puts your energies into it. Thus passing down powers from your ancestors. That's my belief.

Very true it's all about energy and connections

Incense and Candles as well,my tarot deck
Some sigils,it's pretty stocked
I'm having my landlord build a two level shelf
So I can fit lots more,also I have crosses,penticals
Rosary beads,skull heads,a Witch picture etc hanging on the walls behind it,my whole left side of my living room is an alter
The tarot table,the powers,the dolls and pins and mini coffend and boxes and jars and bottles,finger nails,urine tunes
Blood vials,mineis ready for way also my bible table
Where it's left open on certain psalms for a number of days.

That sounds pretty cool. I believe any magic user of any paths connection with their instruments is a vital part of anything. The energy flow about the room, the protection, ect. Is better when the user of any tool has an emotional connection with that object.

If you're concerned you could always buy or make a natural wood stain. I know of some folks who've made their own dyes from bark and leaves. The result is less striking than a commercial stain but you'd know it was all natural.

Well that would be nice and all but I want it a dark blue color. /: I don't know anything short of lapis(which is expensive) that dyes blue. That would be nice but I'm looking for a certain color.
