dorodango as earth element in an alter

so i somewhat recently discovered the simple art of dorodango

basically it means shiny mud dumplings aka balls of dirt that shine.

so i tried it and loved it its very peaceful messing with the earth like meditation it can take up to three days i find to make but you can do several at a time i did up to six the first time then just one the second  time

here are my three dorodangu there not that shiny as i did them improperly but you can instantly see how they  could be used in an alter as an earth element there very pretty and neat you can also paint symbols on them

 

now you are probably wondering how do i make one!! well who better to explain then the internet!

my first of hopefully many posts

so i guess i should say a few things firstly i made this blog in a hope to share my ideas with others and hopefully make a few friends.

so about my and what these posts will be about. i am an eclectic pagan i have a lot of similar  views as in Wicca i don’t really like to label things so i don’t really know if you would call me that or something else all i know this is what i believe and this is how i feel

i am a very scientific person and in fact going to school to study biology atm so i am a very skeptical person i have teetered between my belief and logic and i always seem to come back to what i believe deep down i feel it is true no matter what evidence i find call it ignorance or faith its how i am

so for those few who ever read this and want to know a few basics

i am a Gemini

i don’t worship any particular god or goddess just i know and praise the goddess and the horned god along with the spirits of the land and nature

i am a very hands on person my belief is centralized around creativity and my art and creations are the biggest part of my worship of the physical world which is what this blog will be mainly about so enjoy
