Henna Tattoos & Event Recap

My apologies for not getting around to updating my blog before the event, but this past Saturday I did henna tattoos at the Tea and Tarot event at LightWeavers Academy in Citrus Heights, CA.  If you follow me on social media, I was posting my practice henna tattoos the week prior, and also on the day of the event.

Awareness of Self

I created a total of five henna tattoos on the afternoon of the event.  I was offering to incorporate spellwork into the henna tattoos if desired, and everyone accepted, so each had a focus for manifestation.  No one specifically asked for warding or banishing.  If you were not aware, I am a pagan witch, and this seemed a natural thing for me to offer.

This event is going to be happening again next month, so if you’re in the area and would like so henna spell painting, stay tuned for details of the next event.

Peace

As for how my health handled an afternoon of work, the answer is not nearly as well as I had hoped.  The event had a slow start, so I didn’t start doing henna until about 2pm, and by 4:30pm I had completely slammed into the brick wall, just as thoroughly as though I had been doing something more physically taxing all afternoon.  Just needing to be “on”, and engaging with acquaintances and strangers was emotionally taxing enough to kick in the chronic fatigue.  It’s nice to be to a point in my recovery where I am capable of doing things again, but I still have a long way to go before I can engage normally with the world.

These are the henna tattoos I created for practice the week before the event.  Only the last one was a spell painting.  The others are purely decorative. They are shown below in the order I drew them, first to last.  My lines became significantly steadier as I went along, which was a relief.
