Salt - How to dispose of?

Hey :)

Happy new year to you all :lol:

 

I have a quick question. I have a new year ritual that I have had in place for a while now involving the front door and a line of salt under the door mat, across the threashold. Now.. in years previous I have lived in a house and have just swept it away - but now I live in a flat.

What would you folk suggest as way of disposing of it? Sweeping up and dispursing outside?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts :lol:

No worries.

 

I think when something has done its job you don't really need to worry about how you get shot of it. It's only when you are left with something like... ashes that are relevant and needed that you need to disperse of it in a way that allows the thing to continue its job.

I would add return it to the earth or wash(disolve) it in water, mainly because salt is often used as an absorber in sympathetic magic, so all the negative that is absorbed into needs to be dispelled.

If I thought it had been real busy and definately did the job last year I would make an effort to dispose of it, if it was just a little simple protection magic then I can't see the harm running the tap and pouring the salt down the sink.

I return mine to earth once it has done its job .I sweep it out the door useing a broom so all negativity goes with it ,then gather it up and put it back to earth ,preferably no where near any living plants as that kills them off . :blink:

You could always sweep it up and sprinkle it on the roads outside..... help your local authority. ;)

      I’ve posted a link (in links) to a BBC article in today’s news just to illustrate a bit of the colourful side of Paganism.  Perhaps it will do something to balance my prosaic take on the subject. i know little of Witchcraft but I enjoyed the article and like her approach.

      👍 It's as good a position as any and better than quite a few.

      Yes, it was in Nettle's "Who are your deities?" thread. I said "I seem to have become an atheist. That was never my plan, but here I am." Veggiedancer later said it better than me - "I don’t exactly believe in deities as such. I think they come from  our minds. Archetypes, ways of identify or characterising the spirit/ magic/ life or whatever it is we sense around us. Ways our minds try to explain the unexplainable to us???"

      I’m probably second guessing Nettle wrongly but it wasn’t all that long ago that you would have read posts about alters, magic, Shamanism, spells etc. I think it was either Teatimetreat or Drachenfach that had a hex on her handbag and her car.  When the car was stolen it crashed and the thief was caught. I agree and would very much like to see more of the colourful side of Paganism back here.  Quite right Ellinas.  I do not understand how anyone can claim to be Pantheist (or even pantheist) and atheist at the same time even though the most prominent Pantheists do exactly that.  As I’ve said elsewhere: why can’t they call themselves Panists.  The prefix “pan” means everything and everywhere as in “pandemic”.  The god’s name arose from the adjective so it wouldn’t necessarily mean a devotee of Pan. pee ess - it may be worth mentioning that there are a vast number of belief groups under the umbrella word Paganism.  Druids Witches, Polytheist and Shaman are only a small part of what the greater picture of Paganism depicts. Dunno and don’t care are probably the biggest groups.

      All the above, plus the impression of a preponderance of atheism is currently, as well as historically, inaccurate.  Certainly, I am no atheist.  I believe MS rejects the term as applicable to himself.  Stonehugger, I think, recently said he had headed in that direction, but I've not seen the other resident atheists for a while. However, our ideas of deity are not the same, necessarily.
