So I started my path in the caft about in June 2016. I uselly burn my offerings in a woods no one uselly goes. I had a few strange things happen like I left bottles and candles there only the things inside the circle of stones I had there were smashed and tear apart everything I left inside of it. Everything outside of it was fine. So I kinda bashed that off then I went to the woods new year day. (I started burying my offerings since my fire started to draw attention) so I also buried a plant there to. When I went there all the offerings I buried were drag up the plant was gone and no one nowhere where I buried it so it freaked me out. Afther that I did a love spell closed the circle and took my stones and haven't Went to the woods since. But since two weeks ago when I saw this dark finger with no face come out those woods its been watching me I always catch it when I turn around watching me from far off. I did bury an offering near my house and after seeing the dark finger there it was dig up to and gone. I still see him at night watching me but not during the day since then. Are there creatures Who come and collect the offerings for the goddesses?
I don't know really, but something similar happened to me, I left a bowl with some stones to clean and charge, but when i went back, the stones were throne about within the circle and thrashed about. It was odd because I do know the people that visit the same place, close friends of mine, and they have never done anything to the circle. Plus they were in another country at the time. As for seeing a dark figure, none have appeared.
I had that done to me but it was before I made the circle I left bottle out for moon water but when I got it in the morning the bottle was smashed to peieces and I should add the dark finger might have something to do with the love spell I did I made it myself and include the closing of the circle and not coming back in the spell. And I might also add when I first started the craft I did use a spell in the opening of the circle it was kinda like a hole into the next life maybe something dark saw me closing it and got out before I did?
Do you do any cleansing or protection spells before hand?
I ask this because sometimes doing things like rituals, spells, and offerings can attract unwantedattention from spirits or other creatures, and making sure that you have something protecting you is a must especially if you are just starting out.
