I use a Brass rod the length from wrist to inner elbow, purified in every manner and polished till the outer layer was shed , as in shedding the rod's old life. Not the best but it seems to work. I am still looking for that one little lurking piece of wood that will make the mantle though. Your wand looks as if it will make a fine piece though so yeah XD.

I Have heard heard many ways to imbue wands while making them but the only tip I have for you is to make sure you feel no anger at any crafting stage of the wand, nore use it in anger as this will taint everything about it.

Keep in mind I could be wrong it's just how I understand it. So, keep up the good work

And sorry for bringing it up a month later, let me know how it turned out :)

I just had to ask ;D When I saw the name "Ness", made me think of the game. I haven't beaten the game or anything, playing an emulator of it on my computer from time to time. You'd think I would have thought "Loch Ness", but nope, I'm a total gaming nerd 8D hahaha

To quote someone on here...  It doesn't freaking matter about the Old Testament or the New Testament!  When this country was established church and state were to be separate, so that exactly what is happening counldnt happen.

Welll....more like "-ish"

 Many of the people that came to this country to settle it came because of religious persecution and what did they do when they took over? 

Welll....more like "-ish"

They said they weren't having that in their country. 

150-odd years later....When the first people came to this country, they did it because of many things.  Largely, (more the situation), because of religious "persecution".  The first thing they actually did was establish a religion, THEIR religion, in their colony.


However, people will always be people and here we are with Salem trials and now the Gay rights "witch hunts" as part of our history and our present. 

Sorry, but this is a bit of a stretch.  Seriously.  No insult meant, but this is a bit of a reach.


This is about religious freedom.  You worship the way you think you should and let them do the same. 

You're RIGHT, of course, it IS.  "Marriage" is a CHURCH construct, NOT a "civil" one.  LAWS are civil constructs.  Doggone few people with an I.Q. above room temperature have issue with LAW based union.  It's a semantic argument.  Always has been.  The "you worship" part is the net root issue.  Gay folks aren't really asking for "marriage".  Well, they are, in the fringe.  The mainstream just want to be able to be unified in the manner of THEIR choice without interference.  Now, about the "separation of church and state".  What that means is that the church can't dictate anything to the state.  It ALSO MEANS that the STATE can't dictate ANYTHING to the CHURCH.  Again invalidating the "you practice what you want".  In other words, ONLY on SUNDAY?  A person can't be faithful to their G-d in the way they live their lives?  Sounds a bit incongruent to me...


Love (wether it be straight or gay) is what is all about.  They need to get off their high horse and realize that if Jesus was here today, the gays, emos, goths, pagans, and other outcasts are who he'd be hanging out with same as he did the first time around. 

Are you sure?  I hear this over and over again...how do you know?  I guess it's a common belief because he did hang out healing the sick and raising the dead and all that, (let us not forget the wedding at Cana!  Talk about healing, whoa!), but outcast lepers, lame, sick, blind and DEAD are a little different than gay folks.  THEY don't have a disease, they have no "illness".  He did hang out, mostly, with other Jews.  Just like himself.  Emos and Goths?  I've been "Goth" since there WAS Goth.  I'm STILL "GAF".  These couple of issues are choices.  HARDLY the same.

I think it's possibly the level of teaching that creates the conundrum. If I invited someone to work with me and they could learn as we go along, that wouldn't be chargeable. However if one were to hold a class (like a night school type of thing) then I think some sort of stipend would be appropriate.
 
The person teaching is actually putting time into creating the lessons involved supplying materials perhaps and teaching is a very different format. However I believe a night school format of teaching the craft is not entirely a practical way to learn; it's all very generic then.
 
Working alongside someone is very different, the student is participating and in the process learning and asking questions as they go along.
 
Conundrum is probably a good word....LoL

This is a very important distinction.  While I never charge for using my skills, there are times when materials are recompensed.  I have had people insist on "paying" me, and I can usually get them to write a check to whatever charity melts their butter.  Learning my particular skills in the Craft, at least as they pertain to the little divinatory practices I use, generally repulse most non-adepts.

Hello Ness ;D I'm curious, Earthbound/Mother fan? :o

I am a massive Earthbound fan!! It was one of the first RPGs I ever played when I was a kid. I don't know how but I've had a lot of nicknames before but Ness is one that kind of just stuck.

If I may ask, could this issue extend to religious organizations (like the OBOD and AODA course and membership fees)?

For me personally, I would never charge for a reading. The only time money would change hands with me is if I were buying a book or supplies. But other people are different. I am not against people making an honest living however they can... It's a conundrum.
