This set of talismans has been sold. Contact me to make a set especially for you. I don’t have a lot of time to make them, but right now I do have time.
The third talisman in this set is willow wood and a lintel ward—a blessing and protection. The willow hangs on waxed cotton cord and will do its magical work placed by or above the door, another opening to the outdoors, or placed anywhere else you choose in your home.
This talisman features my three-stem threshold ward formula: I developed a three-stem design—or call it a “formula”—that is a protection and blessing for the home or other space. The formula combines a visual design I created and a shamanic blessing—also my own creation—which I add to the visual design. The visual design’s elements can be implemented in a flexible manner, so all my three-stem wood-burnings look quite different.
I’m obsessed with this magical formula. Developing it was a fascinating project and, now that it’s developed, I find using it fascinating too. I’ve used it for ten wood-burnings, keeping for myself all but three of these different interpretations of the basic design. (Those three include the one in this post.)
After burning one for myself in willow, I loved the energy so decided to do it again.
Willow protects and blesses those who are fey-touched and childlike, and empowers their magic and other endeavors. I think these magics perfectly suit a threshold piece for someone who is Fey-touched. (These magical sensibilities in Lady Willow are ones I perceived myself; I’ve never read about them in a book or heard of them anywhere. Again, I love getting to know the magical properties of wood through visions and other direct experiences.)
Lady Willow also provides a threshold into Faerie—a place between the worlds—and safety while there. Using Willow as a threshold protection and blessing seems to me a lovely pun and enchantment. Again, I’ve not read or otherwise heard of the functions of willow mentioned in this paragraph, but for decades Lady Willow has performed them wonderfully for me.
One reason I came up with a three-stem design, instead of using the rigid straight lines of some traditional threshold pieces, was my longing for protective lines that are alive, dynamic. So I was pleased that, even though I was wood-burning this talisman, I was able to make lines that are dynamic, as if vegetation grown from the soil.
More about the formula:
I wanted three main lines to represent our protective threefold Goddess. The three lines are leafy stems rather than just the rigid lines of some traditional lintel wards because I wanted to call forth the protective power of nature and the Green God. The formula involves more visual elements, but they’re outside the scope of a blog.

If this set calls, grab it. I’m constitutionally incapable of repeating my designs.
I blessed all three amulets. I put my heart and soul in these pieces because I’m an old-fashioned witch who believes I was put on this planet to serve you. Now my heart and soul, held by the amulets, will flow to whomever they are meant to serve.
This set of talismans has been sold. Contact me to make a set especially for you. I don’t have a lot of time to make them, but right now I do have time.
I handcraft talismans for people traveling alongside me: it feels true to who I am and to my magic to craft amulets only for my students and newsletter subscribers, right now. Besides, being a shamanic guide keeps me too busy to create many talismans, except for myself. (Well, I paint original digital talismans for my students constantly, but the previous sentence refers to talismans on the physical plane.)
I’ve been developing the idea of handcrafted talisman sets, each set consisting of three unique charms.
I want to make one-of-a-kind sets—just right for one single buyer who’ll see it and think, “This is mine.”
My idea was that the charms would suit that individual over the long haul, working both as a powerful grouping and also separately. In other words, when you don’t need one or more of the pieces, it/they can be put in storage while the other one(s) remains in use.
So here’s my first three-piece set. When it has sold, I’ll update the listing to say so.
One of the talismans in this particular set is a blackthorn pendant. Note the beautiful maroon on its wood. I love it! When I was sanding the wood, I was so excited when burgundy started to emerge.
I added two faceted cobalt blue beads. I may have had them for 10-20 years. The black waxed cotton cord is earthy yet elegant.
“The thicket that hid Sleeping Beauty was made of blackthorn, and only the hero of the purest intent and heart could pass through it unscathed; those whose hearts were not so pure and whose intentions were less than honorable found themselves snared in the blackthorn’s vicious spines with their flesh torn.”—proprietor of the Etsy shop, Wytchen Wood
This blackthorn pendant will keep all but the worthy (men) at bay. Blackthorn is also good overall protection. If you want the blackthorn‘s power when you don’t want to wear the pendant, put it on your altar or hang it on your wall.
This particular pendant also conveys a boldly, witchy celebration, a down-to-earth joyful presence that would help one find joy in the mundane simplicities and small tasks of life. I’d never noticed that energy in blackthorn and never heard about it anywhere but, now that I’ve noticed it in this piece, I can see it is typical of blackthorn. (For me, the best way to know the magical properties of a wood is to spend time with it rather than just reading what metaphysical books say.)
This set’s second amulet is an ivy wood pendant on black waxed cotton cord.
Ivy is commonly known as sacred to the Green God, so could give you vitality and free your energy up so your confidence, determination, and overall power come forth more fully. Ivy also revs up your sexuality.
Since ivy “belongs” to the Green Man, I think it should also belong to the Green Woman: Elen of the Ways. For me, She has all the powers of the Green God. My sense of Her also is that, for those who want nature’s power but need it channeled to them gently, She can do that for them. He can too, but sometimes a person finds it easier to accept that gentleness and sensitivity from Her.
Since the Green God and Green Goddess both embody living fully, I feel ivy would be really good for being in the moment.
I pyrographed a faint ivy ogham on one edge, which the following photo shows.
I made this post for one of my students public, in case someone else would enjoy it.
When I send you your purchase, I’d love to enclose this talisman as a gift. Does it suit you?
The wood is heather. I pyrographed the Ogham for heather on it (pyrography is the art of burning designs in wood) and put it on a black, waxed-cotton cord.
If you’d enjoy seeing how the heather looked before I worked on it, your talisman came from the one of the sticks in this photo. I got them from a merchant in the British Isles. She harvests ethically:
Wear the pendant or otherwise carry it on you, or put it on your altar or wall, to benefit from the magical properties of heather and the blessing I put on the piece. I enjoyed adding Faerie mojo for you.
The piece is also a keppen (small wand).
And, tada, it is your initial, aka the first letter of your name!
Below are magical sensibilities I perceive in heather. They are what I know from my own experiences of the plant, not something I read about in a book or heard of elsewhere. Of course, if I had these experiences, other people might have.
* creativity, whether in the arts or in problem-solving or anything else
* the sacredness of beauty
* lovely productive fantasies
* the sacredness of fantasies
* bardic artistry or any art
* the sacredness of dreams
* romance, not just in the relationship sense but also in the sense of myth—adventures of epic proportion
J, you’re an explorer, so you might already know other properties of heather, or enjoy researching them online or elsewhere.
Care: the simple instructions I gave you for your stang will work for this too.
To anyone other than J:
I make talismans for people traveling alongside me: right now, it feels true to who I am and to my magic to craft amulets only for my students and newsletter subscribers (when I have time.

I’m thrilled! Yesterday, I finished pyrography on a stang for one of my students, and he’s approved the work, so I’m shipping it to him asap. (Pyrography is the art of burning designs in wood.)
I’ve been wanting to make this stang for him for months. I received it last year from a friend who suggested I burn designs onto it, and I’ve been chomping at the bit waiting to do so. I’ve almost no time for wood-burning because shamanic teaching and counseling keep me busy. But I’m on semi-vacation right now, so am indulging in all the pyrography I can.
A stang can be placed on the altar to represent the Horned God or when you’re working with male energy or on male concerns. The Horned God, Who is often called the Green God, resides in nature, so brings us Nature’s powers. He also confers potency, confidence, and the coupling of passion with integrity.
I wasn’t going to burn the back of the stang because the wood is so beautiful there, but I noticed a knot that was a perfect eye. I just had to woodburn a eye around it. An eye is a protection symbol. How nice to get to add that energy to the stang! And, in some cultures, an eye symbolizes and relates to the sun, which felt perfect for a talisman with Horned God power since He has a strong solar aspect.
A stang can also be used just like a wand.
The stangs I’ve seen have all been atop a full-length staff instead of the smaller handle shown here. But I like this piece because it takes up less space, so it can be put on the altar and is more portable.
What my friend sent me was not actually a stang but a weaving tool: a lucet. It is a tool to make cords. Often, a lucet has a hole in between the two horns but not all of them have that hole. Wouldn’t it be lovely magic to use an item with all this Horned God energy to weave a cord? And how clever of my friend to think of turning a lucet into a stang!
I really enjoyed blessing this piece for my wonderful student. I like to add beautiful Faerie mojo on the talismans I make.
To my friend who’ll be receiving the stang, here are easy care instructions for your talismans: Keep dry. If your talismans get dirty, wipe with a barely damp rag, but only as a last resort. Dampness brings up the wood’s fibers, making the surface less smooth and blurring pyrography. Instead, clean by putting on a gentle wood treatment, such as a nice beeswax and oil blend, without rubbing it in, and then wipe it off before it has a chance to soak in. To keep the wood from drying out, you can use the same wood treatment product occasionally, but allow it to soak in and sit for a while before a gentle rub.
I love making wood charms and the benefits they provide folks. I don’t have time to accept many commissions for them and decided that was a synchronicity. So to go with the flow, I am making talismans only for people traveling alongside me. That feels true to who I am and my magic right now. Commissions are available to my students and newsletter subscribers only, when I have time.

The above photo shows one of my recent paintings printed, cut out, and reassembled 3-d with brads. I painted the tree specifically to be used that way.
I’ve been really working on developing this sort of 3-D art through trial and error. I’m finding it a good way to express my magic and Pagan soul.
Though I am strongly a theist, the Tree of Life is the Goddess for me; the cosmos is Her embrace.
If you prefer to read a print version of my prayer instead of my above calligraphy of it:
Sister Willow Tree
Sister Willow Tree,
You let down Your hair.
Not like Rapunzel trapped in a tower,
You live in power,
leafy boughs curved
till they reach the ground
to shelter all creatures, myself included.
Teach me to bow low in power,
that I too may serve.

I use nettle sting therapy—I sting myself with live nettle plants—to heal joint and muscle damage.
Before going further, I should explain I am not an herbalist and have no scientific basis for this post. It is not meant to prescribe, cure, blah blah blah, disclaimer, disclaimer, disclaimer.
What’s more: what is good for my body and mind may be bad for yours. Nettle stings help heal my muscle and joint damage but may exacerbate yours, for all I know. I can’t say what is safe for a given individual. I doubt an herbalist can always say, either. I take responsibility for my use of herbs.
I can’t define what that responsibility would be for someone else but, for me, it includes consulting with an herbalist, reading up on herbs extensively, talking with herbs, learning about my own unique body so I can note if it is being helped, hindered, or hurt by an herb, and listening carefully to my body and intuition. (Ooh, I accidentally came up with four words that start with h: help, hinder, or hurt by an herb. Must use that again.)
I research herbs in terms of my own body. Every body has differences that affect whether an herb will help, hinder, or hurt that body, how often that body can tolerate the herb, and so on. I also research herbs in terms of my own contraindications (e.g., will a given herb mess with me because of a specific pharmaceutical med I am on? … Actually, I almost never take pharmaceutical meds, but I use that as an example because it’s easy to understand). Herbs are natural, but they are also powerful, and act differently on each person. So do your research, then study how your body reacts to an herb.
I share my experience of nettle sting therapy, despite my disclaimers, because our personal tales with an herbal practice have power. Please share yours with nettle sting therapy in the comment field below. Back to the topic at hand:
Starting this treatment, I had almost no guidelines, other than a few from Susun Weed. She explains it is not a matter of pain from nettle stings distracting you from the pain of your illness. I agree.
I also don’t think nettle sting therapy is a matter of pain waking up your body. If, during lovemaking, my lover suggested hitting me so I could get in touch with my body by turning the pain into energy, I’d say no to that practice. It is not congruent with how I’m wired, so the merit of nettle sting therapy is not a matter of pain waking up my body.
Susun quotes modern herbalists as believing nettle stings “bring dormant energies into action.” She also explains nettle barbs inject a healing substance.
She doesn’t say much more that I know of but, if you’re interested, look on page 181 of her book Healing Wise. I’ve read a bit more from her elsewhere about the treatment but can’t remember where. Somewhere I did read that she says to ask the plant if it’s okay to pick it.
If the plant says it is okay, I myself leave an offering. I often spit on the plant. Saliva is precious. I give part of my body in exchange for part of the plant’s body.
Then I sting the area of my body I want healed. I don’t sting near my eyes or anyplace else like that. These are real stings! They’re fierce! If you’ve never been accidentally stung by nettles, let me tell you: these are sharp barbs that can leave a terrible rash.
Here’s where the trick is, for me. The first time I stung myself was incredibly painful. But the agony lasted only three seconds because I immediately intuited that I should not define it as pain and instead understand it as energy.
As soon as I shifted focus to energy, the pain completely left and became the most amazing power coursing through my arms—which is where I’d stung myself—healing and healing them, healing and healing them, healing and healing them, as if the Goddess had laid hands on me. And unlike typical nettle stings, it left no rash! … Since my Goddess lives in plants, it was Her laying hands on me.
I repeated this process once a week for a few months. At the end of that time, my arms were light years ahead of where they had been and stayed that way for about five months until I overused them.
I learned that if I do not focus on feeling the energy till its healing process has played itself out, I do not get the healing, but get a rash. … Well, maybe I’ll get part of the healing if I pay attention briefly to the energy.
After those first three seconds of agony, the treatment was pain-free, at least for the first year. I can’t remember past that.
If you’ve done bee sting therapy, I believe the therapeutic effects of stinging oneself with nettles might be related. I believe some of the same benefits can be found by applying bee wax; a salve heavy with bees wax brought the feeling in my nerve-damaged feet to life and calmed down the nerve-damaged feet of a friend. Thinking about our experiences made me suspect bee’s wax heals nerves, since the commonality in our experiences might be that we both had a nerve healing.
I’ve continued to use nettle sting therapy over the years, and I keep learning along the way. For example, one summer, my body didn’t really want to be stung, but I did it anyway and suffered a terrible allergic reaction.
Nettle stings help heal the serious injuries I so easily sustain due to weakness from multiple sclerosis.
The stings, I am almost sure, also contribute to recovery from the devastating wear and tear that have accrued from MS bit by bit over the years. In keeping with that, I will sting most of my body—perhaps stinging part of myself one day, another part another day, another part another day—to help wake up the energy suppressed from the overall damage of my body so that awakened energy can start healing me.
Again, research nettle sting therapy yourself, talk to an herbalist, talk to nettles, listen to your body and intuition. E.g., you might be too sensitive physically or psychically for this. But, if it’s not right for you, perhaps my experiences will spark an idea that suits you.
Finding stinging nettles is a lot easier for me than for some folks because I live in the country. At first, I used nettles I found along my walks. Eventually, a few volunteers sprang up on my property. I eventually tossed nettles seeds into an area of my property. Nothing happened for maybe a year or two, and then a fair number of nettles sprang up, though not robustly at first.
A friend of mine brings me composted horse manure that has completely broken down into beautiful rich soil. When I put it into pots for my outdoor container garden, nettles spring up in the pots. I weed them out, but they makes me wonder if growing nettles in pots is an option for city dwellers.
Herbs have saved my life, make my life joyful, and are my close friends. I live immersed in them.

Gender Fluidity and Shamanism: A seven-week ceremony held via teleseminar (group phone-call)
Witches are wild creatures, transcending every limit. I’m a child of the Gods. Their infinite powers are mine.
So gender limits don’t apply to me. Gender limitlessness is an innate part of my magic. Gender limitlessness is innate to me as a Fey being. I choose to embrace my full power as a shaman and person.Join me in a seven-week ritual to:
* Discover, increase, and celebrate your gender fluidity.
* Understand and draw on its otherworldly significance and spiritual potency, to maximize the power of your magic and mundane activities.
Along with additional info about this event, I want to share a bit about my decades-long ever-shifting gender journey as a shaman. I’m sharing it visually, through photographs representing a *few* moments of the journey. That’s why you’ll see pictures of me here and there in this post; a photo essay is woven with the course information.
Usually, gender fluid refers to a self-definition of one’s own gender. We’ll work with that in this rite and go a step further by emphasizing a gender experience, an experience of your gender that is truly your own style, freed from restrictions. I’m not referring to a way of dressing or lovemaking, though they’re included or not according to your choices. I’m talking about a mental, emotional, physical, and otherworldly state of being. This is a birthright that helps you claim your birthright of shamanic and worldly power, beauty, and wholeness of body and spirit.
For this rite, gender fluid will mean both the self-definition and the personal experiences, and that they: are not limited to male and female polarities unless one so desires; include the option of being genderless; might shift constantly; and could include as many variations as there are people—and moments—on the planet.
During this seven-week rite, you’ll:
* Learn how gender fluidity and shamanism go hand-in-hand.
* Use shamanic tools to release gender fluidity that has been squelched in you.
* Discover and explore your gender fluidity.
* Find out how to bring gender fluidity into your magic to set your shamanic powers free.
* Be empowered to bring gender fluidity into your mundane life to set your mundane powers free.
* Experience living your gender fluidity in sacred states. We’ll enjoy this together as a group, in ritual during our meetings.
The Faerie witch gets full choice regarding gender and hence greater Fey power, Fey beauty, and Fey wholeness.
This ceremony might not be offered again. It is suitable for novices and adepts, and it can be used as one of the qualifying electives required for advanced Third Road training. Teleseminars are group phone meetings: just dial the phone to participate.
The group meets seven consecutive Wednesdays, noon to 1:00 EST, starting Weds, August 15. Reserve Weds Oct 3, same time, for a makeup session in case I am unavailable for one of the planned meetings.
Tuition is $250. Your particular carrier may charge you for the calls. Upon receipt of payment, your place is reserved, and event phone #, etc., emailed to you.
Scroll down to pay securely with PayPal.
If you need more info, or want to discuss scholarship, trade, or payment plan, call 814-337-2490. No refunds.
You’ll be really living gender fluidity, whether for the first time or more than ever, in both the mundane and magical realms.
StarJoy is the name of the above Faerie I painted as a present for an eight-year-old friend of mine. I feel blessed to have the ability to do an original painting for my young friend. I’m also grateful because the painting was a doorway for StarJoy to enter my life. I’m stunned (happily so) by this sweet-faced, Faerie child because she’s the most loving and gentle spirit that could possibly exist.
When I paint an “imaginary” portrait, I don’t usually see the face in my mind beforehand. The face emerges bit by bit, and I don’t get to see it entirely until my painting is complete. I don’t get to fully meet the spirit of the being until my painting of them is finished.
Faces I paint usually come from otherworldly realms, not from my imagination. … Well, my imagination is involved in ways. E.g., imagination plugs me into those realms.
Once this painting was finished, I was clearer than ever that fanciful beings I depict come not from my imagination but from Fey worlds. I mean, I was stunned by this particular piece of art for three reasons:
1) All of the face’s details and the way they integrate were so clearly not my doing. The same goes for her body.
2) This little girl’s demeanor is just so sweet and darling and gentle and kind, and is so sincerely all those things, that she’s shockingly—though delightfully—real to me.
3) That her image’s details and the integration of them weren’t from me, and represented a person as exceptionally wonderful as StarJoy, brought home the realization that she is real far more viscerally than would usually occur after I finish a painting, the realization hitting me like a sudden, majestic thunderstorm ringing with brilliant thunder.
I created two versions of StarJoy. The first has the night sky in the background and is at the top of this post. I printed that version for my eight-year-old friend to hang in her home.
I’ll also give her the second version. It has no background and is a jointed paper doll. Here she is under the protective branches of a tree–another of my paintings that is a jointed paper doll—along with a gnome I constructed by needle felting:
Here’s a quick video showing how the doll’s joints move:
If you want to see the vid again after it’s played, click the arrow that’s kind of circular.
Below is a brief time-lapse vid of my painting StarJoy from start to finish, except for her background. … Hm, I might’ve tweaked the figure a bit more after the video.
If the vid seems to pause, I’m probably painting tiny detail. You’ll know the vid has ended when my URL appears. My painting process was atypical because the artwork was intended to be made into a jointed paper doll.
Receive a Three-Month-Long
Direct Spiritual Transmission
starting June 4, 2018
The World Tree Takes Care of Me, Francesca De Grandis, 2012
A direct spiritual transmission is a method I use to give blessings. An explanation of that method is toward the bottom of this post. But if you don’t want to deal with all that verbiage, here’s the bottom line: the benefits to you are enormous. Read on:
Receive continual support for three months—constant blessings on your body, spirit, and circumstances.
It is easy to receive this transmission. You don’t have to attend an event or do any work. Just sign up, and I do the work for you!
The transmission shapes itself to your physical, spiritual, and emotional needs, even as they change moment to moment. For example, sometimes you need your income to increase, other times you need large inner transformation, other times you need nurturing peace, other times you need a combination of things.
No experience needed. Novices and adepts both are deeply impacted.
I send you this spiritual transmission five days a week, every week for three months. This is big!
You also benefit from a yearlong journey that I am close to finishing: I’m in a private, solitary twelve-month ceremony about the sacred trees of the ancient Faerie Faith. My Gods and the trees themselves want me to do the transmission as I culminate my journey. I’ll also commune with the World Tree. (World Tree is a term some people use to denote all of creation.)
You don’t have to understand anything about this tree work I am doing. My point is: my doing it will add power to the transmission. Whether you are only beginning to improve your life, or you’ve already made significant changes for the better, whether you’re in a crisis that requires immense change, or you’re doing well and want to do even better, trees are calling me to do this work for you. The World Tree takes care of us. Your heart’s desires are yours to receive.
Pay securely with PayPal.
Option 1) Choose three easy, automatic monthly payments of $150. Your total cost: $450. Payments appear on the credit card associated with your PayPal account. This option is available if you have a PayPal account. Use the Subscribe button.

Either payment choice constitutes enormous savings. Imagine having shamanic support tailored to you throughout the week for three months!
Upon receipt of payment, I email you confirmation of enrollment.
If you can’t afford payment, need reduced payment, or have questions about the event, phone me. 814.337.2490. No refunds, but you can cancel your subscription any time.
Wonder what I mean by “direct spiritual transmission?” I don’t know how anyone else does one, but I can describe what I do: I enter an altered state whereby others benefit enormously. I do not do anything to you. I do not inject you with energy, rearrange your energy, or even dust off your aura. I feel it would be unethical, dangerous, and arrogant to go about rearranging someone. I was simply born a human good luck charm. When I go into a certain altered state, the luck activates. I do not decide what the best results for the recipients of the luck should be. It is their luck, not mine, so the luck transforms them and their lives in the ways they most need and want.
A direct spiritual transmission does not substitute for medical care by a physician, psychiatric counseling, or other therapeutic treatment. Participants are personally responsible for the consequences of their voluntary participation. This spiritual treatment is extraordinarily effective, but may not work for some individuals.

“If you’ve not yet taken one of Francesca’s classes or read one of her books, do it. Do it now. Make it a priority. Even if you think you know everything, and maybe especially then. #wow #mindblown” Matt
“I am truly blown away at how much I was able to resolve and heal. For me, working with Francesca is like having years and years of mucky, creative blocks just gently dissolved over a matter of weeks. ... All of my encounters with Francesca lead to expansive growth and progress. Francesca is a remarkable gift to this world.” Chad Woodward
“The transmission was so good it was seriously ridiculous! Within a few days, I got a job, a new truck for the exact amount I’d wanted to pay, and sold our old truck without even trying.” Julia

“I so want the good and increasingly oppressed hearts among us to take just a step—just one—onto the path you offer and into the presence of the way you hold yourself, Francesca. That path and your essence will enfold them with not just the promise of peace but the living presence of it, deep as the inner earth, vast as the starry heavens.”—Rebecca
“Huge positive repercussions. During the transmission, everything changed, nothing was the same. A lot of it can’t be verbalized. ... There are loops we get into, and your material breaks the loops. I pick up energy from you, and it gets me back into my practices. You are on a path and are moving energy and making things happen on a multileveled reality that is creative. I need help with that sometimes. You give it.”—Holly Soutar

“Our work together was really helpful to me, thanks for all the hard work you must have done to earn that level of skill and blessedness.”—Greg
“It has been awhile since our session, and I still appreciate the work we did, because it jump started an art career. ... During our hour session, I never thought the outcome would be like this.
