How to Get Pregnant (when the old fashioned way isn't working)
What a little moonlight can do
1. Fill a bowl halfway with water, preferably ocean or river water, but bottled spring water will do, too.
2. Beginning at the new moon, take the bowl outside and leave it in the moonlight for a minimun of three hours.
3. Carefully bring it inside and put the bowl of moon-charged water under the bed in the vicinity of where the woman's belly most frequently rests. For maximum effectiveness, the woman should keep her belly situated above the bowl as much as possible, whenever she's in the bed.
4. Repeat this ritual for fourteen nights or until the appearance of the full moon. Make love as inspired.
Filled to the Brim
1. Line a charm bag with some dried mother of thyme.
2. Fill the bag with cowrie shells, a small piece of silver, and a lodestone anointed with Astarte Oil (coriander, hasmine, neroli or petitgrain, and rose essential oils in sweet almond oil). Astarte is the ancient Semitic spirit of fertility; her name is believed to mean "filled womb."
3. Wear the bag around your waist, under your clothes. (Anointing the woman's thighs with Astarte Oil prior to sex may also be beneficial).
One other note: Verify that all containers in your home (boxes, canisters, vases, and so on) are not empty. Place tiny baby doll toys inside anything that could be construed as an empty container.
Okay. Now up for discussion...
what if you don't ovulate around the full moon? I do, but what do you do for those that don't? AND...do you stay up for three hours every night to charge your water, or do you think maybe you can have a bowl outside, charging, and one that you're sleeping on?
Anybody know what a cowrie shell is or where I can get one?
Do you think it's easier to purge empty containers or try to fill them all? Never a better reason to pare down the tupperware, I suppose....
