I've been posting that pic of my tat for a while and just thought I might share why it's significant to me. It's a rape ward. A symbol that protects me from future sexual assault.
Of course the symbol it's self has no power but it acts as a catalyst for my intent. I actually did the symbol on my arm as something to use at a later time for whatever purpose I decided to put it to. I figured some kind of protection, but when I got raped a few years ago, that made the decision for me what it would be for.
Until that time I didn't consider the possibility that I could get raped again. I won't talk about how it works any further than I have. The truism that secrets have more power when kept secret isn't just true of negative secrets.
I have confidence in it/me...even though my nightmare wards have all failed miserably. (I can control what happens outside me better than what happens inside me...imagine that!)
I only believe in wiccan principles of magic because they have shown that they work. You can't do everything with it, but there are a lot of things you can do very well and it's very flexable. Of course I/life always finds a way 2 mess things up even after I get what I want handed to me so ultimately it's no big wup.
This spell I didn't just do once, but also do additional "maintenance" work on it as well since it's the kind of spell that doesn't just deliver once but continues to indefinitely.
well, I've rambled on and I'll have 2 work a spell now for someone 2 give a damn. (just kidding)
