Welcome, fellow traveler, to Lady Pendragon’s


We’re living in a world that can be pretty wearying at times,  especially nowadays,  it seems.

So you’ll no doubt be facing some challenges, and may in need of a boost, or some respite;

and there’s a kind of blessing we all feel, when healing can occur, or a difference be made,

or just the simple sense of acceptance when someone lends you support, and is willing to hear you out.

And Lady Pendragon’s is where you can find all of those things.

Along  with some reinvigoration for your journey through this world.

The House of Shadows is both a place of healing and a tonic.


If you feel you need a stronger resonance with a force or energy, attunement to harness a particular magickal power, then there are paths to cater to you here:

Or maybe you’re looking for a little insight into your situation?

Some guidance and clarity on where it’s all disposed around you,

what direction you should favour, and which of those magickal archetypes and energies you can attune to, to the best outcome.

And the chance to vent and rant and be heard, at the same time:

Stay for a while and take the time to relax and breathe.


And there’s always something to read…


This Month’s Topic:


Crystals are as individual as we are, 

There are also huge concerns over the ethics of mining, fashion, conspicuous consumption, ignorant handling etc etc.

every crystal you acquire needs cleansing.

You have several methods of cleansing available at your disposal. It’s all in the intent. But two in particular will help you connect the visualisation to the act in order to make it a ritual.

There’s ritual to be found in everything, from taking a few deep breaths in the morning to making a cup of tea. But I digress! The two methods I’m referring to are smoke cleansing and water cleansing. I’ve sent you the video of me cleansing your pendulum over a joss stick. It’s a visual representation of what you will feel as you hold each crystal over the smoke, in a rolling action, allowing to catch the smoke where it goes and sit still occasionally. When it stills, imagine the smoke collecting in the crystal and then releasing upwards, clearing any negativity, which you may visualise as you wish, as dark grey smoke dissipating harmlessly upwards for example, or just feel the negativity leaving the crystal and dissolving harmlessly away, until the crystal feels and seems light and bright again. Have a window open too if you’re not in the open air, that’s the science bit behind all smoke cleansing!

As you do so with each crystal, get a feel for where its energy levels are currently at, how/if they improve during the cleansing and when it tells you it’s had enough. Just see what each one tells you. Allow your mind to be still and see what they communicate to you.


The other method (which you may prefer to start off with, or you may feel is more or less appropriate with each crystal) is simply to hold and handle the crystal under running water, as described above but visualising the water running ‘through’ the crystal and negative energy being rinsed away down the plughole (or wherever you are).
