• WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: Dreamcatchers are not only beautiful additions to your home decor, but also represent a powerful symbol of protection and guidance while sleeping..
A dreamcatcher, to some, is considered to be a powerful protection talisman, especially while one is sleeping. Dreamcatchers were originally created and used by Native Americans (specifically the Ojibwe or Chippewa tribe). There are many variations to the designs of dreamcatchers, as well as the lore that surrounds them.
It is said that the air of the night is filled with both positive and negative energies and dreams. It is believed that if a dreamcatcher is hung above someone sleeping, the negative dreams will get caught up within the web of the dreamcatcher, while the positive dreams slip through the center and fall down the hanging feathers and they will then glide down to the person beneath. In the morning, the light of the sun is said to banish the negative dreams from the web. The quartz crystals within the center of the webbing help to further neutralize negative energies, providing further protection to your sleep talisman.
We included a dreamcatcher for you to hang in your home to help keep you protected when meditating, astral projecting, shamanic journeying, as well as sleeping and performing dreamwork.
Hoop Size: 4.0" x 4.0"
Total Length: Roughly 4.0" x 8.0"

Note: These dreamcatchers are not a Native American made product.

• ITEM 6: MOONSTONE SET.........$2.00
• WHAT IS IT?: Moonstone Tumbled Stone with Organza Bag and Information Card
• WHO MAKES IT?: Mother Nature
• WHERE CAN I GET IT?: Exclusively at the Sabbat Box Store.
• WHY WOULD I WANT IT?: Moonstone is a great stone that corresponds to dreamwork and nighttime workings, and is said to further help the enhancement of psychic abilities as well as intuition.
Another favorite amongst our subscribers here at Sabbat Box are tumbled crystals and gemstones. Tumbled stones serve various purposes within modern New Age spirituality as well as Wicca. Many believe different stones harness or release specific energy or vibrations, which commonly stems from lore. We wanted to include a stone within this box that corresponded with dreamwork and sleep and came up with Moonstone. Moonstone is said to increase psychic ability, heighten intuition, and provide protection while sleeping.
Moonstone is a type of feldspar that is found in Asia and South America. Known as "the psychic's gemstone." moonstone is said to be one of the strongest stones to help bring out psychic abilities, as well as heighten intuition and protect against negative energies when sleeping. Moonstone is a feminine stone that corresponds to the element of water, the brow chakra and is ruled by the moon.

• TIME •
We take pride in assembling each and every Sabbat Box by hand, no matter the amount of time it takes. We don't just throw your items inside a flat rate priority mail box like some other subscription box companies out there. We want your Sabbat Box to be delivered to you as beautifully as it left us, and it takes a tremendous amount of time to complete this task.
This includes folding the boxes together, individually cutting each sheet of tissue paper by hand, weighing out the crinkle paper for each box, designing the flyers, coupons, stickers and brochures to be printed professionally by commercial printers, individually placing each candle within a bag, individually assembling the boxes, individually packing the tissue paper within each box by hand, putting together and creating product packing. This timeframe doesn't even include the efforts made to manage the Sabbat Box website, the back end billing system, social media management, customer service inquiries, accounting, marketing, purchasing, networking, and so on.
We believe in what it is we are doing and we sincerely hope that each and every one of you can see that the purest of intent and utmost care goes into curating each Sabbat Box.

Litha/Midsummer Sabbat Box Theme Release • A Magical Midsummer's Night Dream 1
The twenty-first day of June will see the longest day of the year here in the Northern Hemisphere, and the celebration of this time of fire and light will soon be upon us. Bonfires, feasts, and outdoor activities are the order of the day…a day that honors the sun reaching its apex, the God as solar deity in his full regalia, shining His life-giving force on plant and animal alike. Handfastings, along with “jumping the besom”—Pagan wedding ceremonies—are common, as the fiery celebration of life naturally leads to the celebration of joining two lives together.
As the solstice sun sets, the night brings bonfires—called “setting the watch” by ancient European Pagans to spurn evil spirits away—as a means to extend the longest day even further to signify its importance in the dance between light and dark. And while the astronomical significance of this day centers on light and sunshine, Pagans and witches also turn their focus to the night on this bright day and its magickal significance. Our theme for this year’s Litha Sabbat Box is dedicated to the spell craft practiced after that longest day of the year comes to an end: A Magical Midsummer’s Night Dream.
We are curating a special box focused on this shortest night and its sacred significance, which will contain a collection of items that will enhance your practice at this once-a-year time and focus on our nightly path. We hope that you can benefit from this collection of items that will be featured within the Litha Sabbat Box, as our goal is to connect to the protection and insight that Midsummer’s Night can bring, as well as use the opportunity to celebrate the sun while honoring the darkness.
When the longest day commences, we hope you celebrate the light and life that it brings, but we also encourage you to turn your attention to the power of magickal workings after the sun goes down. Workings and “mischief” glide as freely as fairy-wings in this shortest of nights, and it is our time to work our Ways and tread the briefly-darkened path until we sleep…and dream. The fairy Puck in Shakespeare’s A Midsummer’s Night Dream, states it thus:
“Now it is the time of night
That the graves all gaping wide,
Every one lets forth his sprite,
In the church-way paths to glide:
And we fairies, that do run
By the triple Hecate's team,
From the presence of the sun,
Following darkness like a dream,
Now are frolic: not a mouse
Shall disturb this hallow'd house:
I am sent with broom before,
To sweep the dust behind the door.”
— Puck, A Midsummer’s Night Dream, Act V, Scene I.
