“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”

Interesting.

also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope

image

the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him

but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high

and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair

what a badass

It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job

He and Robert Pattinson should start a club

I’ve revamped my theme, and i’ve recently deleted all my other accounts other than this blog and my main account so expect my presence a lot more! in addition, i’ll be writing a thesis paper on voodoo in New Orleans, so I’ll probably be posting a lot about that~

Self-Love Spray

witchcraftings:

Purpose: If you’re ever feeling down about yourself, mist yourself with this Self-Love Spray.

Materials: A spray bottle (alternatively, you can use a regular bottle and simply dab the mixture on yourself); 12 fresh rose petals; lavender essential oil; a lemon; a pot/cauldron; a stove, fire, or kettle; 4 cups water.

This spell is best done…: During a waning moon.

Instructions:

Cast circle and call quarters if desired. Ground and centre if needed.

Concentrate on driving away negative feelings. Visualize what pain, anxiety, and self-hate look like. What colours are they? What do they feel like? For me, negative feelings are dark brown and feel gritty like wet sand or dirt. Next, visualize what good feelings look and feel like. Imagine these good feelings replacing the bad. Say:

"I bless this work with self-love."

Pour 4 cups water into the pot. If you don’t have a stove or fire, boil the water in a kettle before you add it. To the water, add 12 drops lavender essential oil. As you add the oil, say:

"I banish anxiety. I bring peace."

Add 12 rose petals, saying:

"I banish pain. I bring love."

Add the juice of a fresh lemon, saying:

"I banish negativity. I bring happiness."

Pour all the good energy you can into the mixture. I like holding my hands over the pot and picturing myself literally pouring bright light into the pot as if it’s water running from my fingers. Say:

"Darkness is banished and light comes to me. So mote it be." *

Bring the water to a boil and let sit, uncovered, for about 20 minutes (or, it kettle was used, let sit for 20 minutes). Strain the mixture into a bottle and discard the petals and any other leftover materials in the water (i.e. lemon seeds).

Carry the bottle with you, spraying yourself whenever you feel the need to. I like halving the mixture; keep a bottle put away, and carry a tiny mister with you.

*You can replace “So mote it be” with any statement you wish.
