Day 30:

Did the salt + ritual. Wretched connection to piece. Couldn’t even get a good thing going with the circular sanding. Ran out of my consecrated salt too. IT HAS BEEN 30 DAYS! I HAVE ACCOMPLISHED NOTHING! Oh well, I have tried. Guess I will make a quick rundown of stuff I learned doing this as I carry it forward into overtime:

–          Circular motion works better than linear for gathering energy.

–          Metalsmithing and trance don’t work.

–          I usually can connect with salt pretty well… I’m going to stop the salt purification step to see what that does.

–          Metalsmithing and trance don’t work.

–          While the piece feels heavy and people have been rubbing it on their face and sniffing it… it doesn’t feel special… (yeah… my peeps ladies and gentlemen…)

–          Metalsmithing and trance don’t work.

–          I did get to metalsmith every day, which is what I wanted to do but couldn’t justify the time.

–          Metalsmithing and trance don’t work.

–          Am I forgetting something… oh yeah! METALSMITHING AND TRANCE DON’T WORK!

Think that the empowering process will work better after I’m done fiddling with it and can just sit and focus on it. Tomorrow then!

sanding is much faster. i shall make much gaudy.

Ritual: Salt purification followed by focused intent on motivation and inspiration for 30 mins while chanting the mantra “ufnav cebjh rwipoet wil ymsit” whilst I construct the piece
