QUESTION - I am curious- I have sent out an intention spell and am wondering what I should do with my items used in the spell as I wait? I don't think I should tuck away in a box as I want the magic to flow, but my altar is getting full and messy with charms and such. What do you do with your poppets etc. as you wait on results?
Thank you. Awesome site, as always!!
ANSWER – I’ve got a highly specific way of storing them! And I’ve popped my actual pic up so you can see what I mean. I have two “trees” (basically big branches of dead fallen wood) and I’ve brought them inside the house. These work as spell/charm trees and I basically just tie any poppets or spell work onto the trees while they are in use. Ideally I’d add that I ALWAYS remember to stick a post it note on them to remind me who the working was for but sadly I often forget and end up looking at various plasticine poppets in bewilderment wondering who had annoyed me enough to stick THAT many needles in them… !!
It’s a handy method of storage because it keeps the surfaces free but it also means the spells are still accessible rather than, as you say, being tucked away in a box or a drawer. It also helps me to see the workings and think about them and this brings additional energy which keeps the workings topped up with intention.
