Okay, im posting this in my blog rather in the forums due to the subject tends to make some people queasy :-P
The topic is menstrual blood n magick.. How effective and if used, how should it be used.
A couple of decades ago I used menses blood quite frequently to consecrate ritual tools, magical jewelry items and certain types of spellwork but as my path has evolved I rarely use it anymore. Im off two minds in regards to its effectiveness.
On one hand I believe it can be a very powerful for consecrating ritual tools and jewelry on a personal level. The personal energy it contains is very strong but I also believe that because of its nature as a bodily 'waste' product its use in magick should be limited to spells and workings that have a similiar energy to them. And as for using menses blood as an offering to the Gods... I akin it to feeding my Orisha animals that have been dead for a week... That just isnt kosher :-P
