Apache Burden Baskets were small open baskets hung at the entrance to the lodge or home. When you arrived home from the day's work, you would place your burdens and worries of the day into the burden basket outside the home. By not taking your worries and burdens into the home with you, you will preserve the domestic tranquility of the home.
I just read about these today and I love the idea. How many times have we carried the weight of the day home to our families, including the rush-hour drive and more? This basket, hanging at the door, would remind everyone to leave their day outside and not carry it into the tranquility and peace of the home.

That is a really great idea, and it would be an excellent way to remember to leave the the troubles of the day in the past where they belong, and enjoy some time at home with our loved ones. I intend to go around to a few stores today and look for one to put up in my own home.
If it is your Truth to walk a path you have chosen, then let no one tell you that it can not be so, for to truly be a Druid is to believe in Truth, your Truth, against the world.
Blue: I visited a friend tonight and a opossum walked across my path as I went to her door....then when I came home the same thing happened but as I walked to my own door. What an interesting coincidence! I will take the advice it gives me.

Kuro Tenshi: How can one prove to themself that magic is real?

Obviously: One can prove that magic works to themselves by attempting different spells and having positive results that match up with their intention. This is how one proves anything by use of experiment. Anything other than that is simple self-delusion.

Ding Dong: Is there a spell where I can just say it while my eye's are closed without making circles and all that?
