Simply Starry Smudge - Goddess Cerridwen
The Simply Starry Smudges are a brand new line here at Starryeyedsupplies, a beautiful loose herbal smudge to help you create your own Temple within your sacred space.
Each Starry Smudge is centred around a different energy of Temple in order to help you build your own energy space.
Each scent is created around a particular energy web to promote harmonous energies whilst smudging the space within; based on ancient customs of using herbs and smoke to purify a space of negative vibrations and psychic debris, each Simply Starry Smudge is hand blended and imbued by this Celtic Witch to pack a magickal punch and smell absolutely divine doing it!
For use in burning rituals of cleansing, on a charcoal disc or within a cauldron.
Each Simply Starry Smudge comes in a reusable 100ml screw top tin with moon sigil, contains a unique crystal tailored to the energy of the smudge blend, and comes with a wildcrafted Crow feather to help you smudge your space in Corvid style!
Simply Starry Smudge - Goddess Cerridwen has been designed to honour the Celtic Goddess Cerridwen who was very vocal in the creation of her spell items!
This spell energy honours certain aspects of the Goddess Cerridwen who is a multi-faceted Goddess, a Shape-shifter who has many forms and energies. In her mythos she chases Gwion after he dropped three drops from her cauldron of Awen (Inspiration) onto his fingers and tasted the potion giving him access to untold wisdom and magickal powers intended for Cerridwens' son.
When Gwion shapeshifted into a Hare, Cerridwen pursued him as a Greyhound, when he shifted into a fish She became an Otter, when he changed into a bird he became a hawk. Eventually Gwion shifted into a grain of wheat and Cerridwen became a Hen and ate him; but through the magick of the tale the seed that he had shifted into became a seed of life within Cerridwen who became pregnant, transforming Gwion into Taliesin whom Cerridwen gave birth to - Taliesin is better known as 'Merlin' in modern times although this was originally a title; one of the greatest poets and magicians the world had ever known.
Through shapeshifting and trials, Cerridwen helped Gwion to struggle to overcome all challenges through shapeshifting and ultimately rebirth.
Simply Starry Smudge - Goddess Cerridwen gives homage to the wheat seed aspect of this myth as a provider of fertility and change as well as to Cerridwen as the White Lady of Inspiration and Death. The spell oil itself reflects the potion of Awen - Inspiration and Magick and contains magick for Inspiration, the ways of Magick, Poetry, Creation, Healing.
Magick of the Earth and Water run through, as well as growth through transformation and personal change. The energy reflects the druid aspects of Land, Sea and Sky through which the animals shapeshifted; and shapeshifting magick here can help you through all the little "deaths" of our life; the changes which lead us to being our best selves, and reminding us to never give up.
