“When humans make crazy choices, when karma goes cockeyed, when good is trumped by fear and greed, it’s time to gather your power and express yourself.” That’s what Ruth Leslie Wright says. The vampire grandmas know being human is hard. And they should know: they’ve opted out of the human species. In view of the election, you can see why.
Here’s their advice for today:
When you feel powerless and discouraged, when you’ve lost faith, when you want to say just forget it and sleepwalk or watch tv for four years, when you’re ready to jump species because humans are JUST TOO MUCH, do the opposite–even if it’s just a simple thing–like making a fetish.
You can use a fetish to protect and motivate yourself at this time of human trial. Use it to consolidate power. Use it to push back.
Easy Recipe for a simple fetish: Write a power word on a piece of paper, like connection or justice or protection. Fold the paper and bind it with thread. Voila! *
Treat your fetish right. Carry it in your pocket where you can feel it. Or glue it to your desk or dashboard or dangle from a nail in your house. Pay attention to it. Power doesn’t like neglect.
You can change things with a fetish, pull someone to you, bind someone, find the words, conceal fear, clear your way. And you can heal with a fetish– yourself or someone else. You can confer power. You can charm your way forward, as if you hold a light that illuminates the future. The spirit of the object whispers to you. You know things. You see things. You can even conjure a dreamboat to send someone across the River Styx. Vampire grandma, Diane DeKay, is going to make that one.
Get busy now. It’s important! Create your fetish today and then—fetish in hand—make a phone call, write a letter, join a group, make common cause to push back against Donald Trump and his Republican government.
