* "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.

Looks like nobody mentioned this one. Someone on one of my tarot forums uses tingsha cymbals to cleanse their tarot decks. I personally like the idea of using sound. Here's a link.

I keep hearing about using sound for such purposes, but whenever I look up info I get more about jewelry cleaning equipment and wiccish and unrelated energy clearing methods than using like bells or something for energy clearing.

Here's a random idea... maybe you can use singing bowls for this purpose?
Spider Man 3 never happened. And Epstein didn't kill himself.

Nnnft, trust me, you can have it! Rosemary is one of those "take over the world" plants.  Kind of like... anything in the mint family, or morning glory vines.  It loves space!  Check out some restaurants in your area, especially if they're into the "eat local" thing.  Our local Mexican eatery has rosemary growing right outside on the curb. :)

You mmmmmmmight be able to find it in places like Lowe's or Home Depot.  I never have to buy it, so I never know when it's available.

lol you know I actually missed this post for like two days XD We have this big huge plant in the front yard, I have no idea what it is, but it's cool. It's sorta spindly and stays green all year. It grows these huge stalks with beautiful flowers that only grow once a year XD
This is a color picture of one of its blossoms that I took :3



I think it would keep the rosemary bush in its place, since this plant is older than I am lol

I would think you could use those or drums too. I have, I am very serious when I say this, used music to fill a room with positive energy. Specifically Led Zeppelin.

Lol neither do i, it just grows big stalks every summer and the blooms grow and when wind and rain pulls them away the stalks stay bare for months. It's one of those plants where you can just dig up a chunk and plant it somewhere else and voila, two plants.

There's a couple of methods of sound clearing.

- A single-bar chime: strike it, let it ring out (don't damp/stop the sound). While you hear it ring out, imagine/visualise the sound waves pushing the unwanted stuff out and away from you.

- Various other things that make sound of this kind. I prefer ringing sound (chime, finger chimes, etc.) to clattery (tambourine), but that's me.

- Loud claps. (not constant, more like :ringing clap: pause :ringing clap: pause)

My usual practice in any of the above is once at each quarter (walking counterclockwise), then above, below, and center. If I'm being really thorough, I do the other 4 compass points (NW, SW, etc.) and all the physical corners of the room.

Another option is to use either tonining or chant to push and move the energy out of the way. Toning tends to work best when it engages the full body (which means it should have both nasal and chest resonance - this takes some practice for most people - and most people will find there's a couple of pitches that really work for them, and a lot of pitches that don't, in my experience - I have a really good time with the D an octave above middle C, then the G, D, and G below that. Which pitch I pick depends on what I'm doing.)

There's a variety of banishing chants out there, but for lighter work I often pick something that references the elements, and just do the energetic work underneath the lyrics. (Air I am has a nice driving rhythm which can be handy.) .

Yes.  Sistra would also work.
