* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

going through stuff
« on: September 17, 2011, 01:11:19 pm »
Okay so I was going through my child hood things the other day because I was just board. Anyways, I came across this glass wand that I got for my birthday a long time ago. It has meaning to it because it was given to me by my brother. At the time though I didnt know what Paganism/wicca was so I just used it as a toy. Now though I had thoughts if I could use to imvoke deity. it is glass, it has like this purple dust in it, with like confetti but this confetti are moons and stars. I thought this would be cool , but I dont know if my deities would find disrespect or not because it has meaning to me? what would you do in this situation? thank you blessed be :)

If you are just going to use it for magic, I doubt it matters. If you are going to use it for religious ritual, that would depend on your gods.

How does it work to run energy? Glass is generally considered to be an insulator, not not a connector, so it's traditionally not used at times when you want to direct energy somewhere.

I have seen people use that kind of wand occasionally - but never as a primary working tool, usually for rituals where a sense of humor or childlike approach to the world were part of the plan. (And for those, I think they work quite well.)

I have a glass wand and a glass ritual knife (a Depression glass knife, very collectable btw) that I've used for ritual and never had any problems but then it really does depend on what kind of magic you're working and your deities. If it feels good to you and works well it's probably fine, but give it a few practice runs before you settle on it.
