You need at least thirteen stones (not big rocks) which are about the same size and shape.You’re going to put them in a bag you can shake up a bit so you don’t want to have something too heavy or clunky to carry around.

On Facebook, Witches of Ontario, someone posted about their landlord not wanting them to practice Wicca/ Witchcraft in the home. The landlord was concerned about the spirits which might be attracted to the home. Yes, people do have rights and freedom of religion.

One of the policemen/ detectives was telling Murdoch his theories of how the universe came to be.
