Interesting Video Explaining “What is Witchcraft?”

I found this little over 3 minute YouTube video explanation of what Witchcraft is very interesting. The woman explaining it puts it in a way that I would have. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

This rune helps you gaining the goodwill and the limitless power of the Higher Ones regardless they are people or other Beings. It is useful for gaining wisdom and helps with the manifestation of the spell result  at the proper time.

If you wish a spell to work at a particular time, Wunjo may be enguaged to control  the released energy of the spell.

Wunjo can be used by amulet for a task  that should be completed  in 9 days. In 9 days you should expect the result of the desired outcome.

Wunjo resonates with 9 and works best when it is attuned to 9. This rune is the rune of the “happy end”. It is usually used at the final position of the spell as a sign of success and happiness.

It works well in all aspects and especially in the areas of the carreer and love. Successful journey. It strenghtens the bonds, encourages brotherhood/sisterhood and harmony. Happiness and Wellbeing. It can be used in cooperation with other runes for the achieving of particular goals. Realisation of the ambition, understanding, good health, blooming partnership, success in love.

Divination: Your eyes are wide open for the truth. A prise. A sense of delight. Everything goes well because you are in perfect harmony with the life itself. When the things get worse, allow Wunjo to touch every facet of your Being.

You will experience happiness if you work for it. Seek harmony and balance. Always look for decisions , do not get stuck within the problems.

Happiness should be based on Truth and Honesty to be long lasting. If you hide yourself from the Truth , you hide yourself from the happiness. Look for this which is the right one and the good fortune will come.

The Wheel of fate  has turned to your benefit. A positive outcome or turn.

Reverse meaning : lask of understanding, problems, an ambition that does not come true, secret,  success is an illusion. You should work hard.

Interpretation : This is the Rune of the Light. It can be a magickal light in dark places.Remember, the Light attracts things, dangers included. So, the ability to see in the darkness may be a better choice.

The rune Wunjo can be drawn with the index finger starting from the stem and upwards and then the diagonal lines  down.

Description

A flag is planted in the field of battle after a resounding victory. A long struggle has ended. Victory gives way to days of song, celebration and rejoicing. According to Norse mythology, the great halls of Valhalla awaited all vanquished warriors and heroes after death — as long as they had fought nobly and bravely in life. What awaited the warriors in Valhalla was eternal glory, peace and joy: a state of eternal bliss. Wunjo represents a spiritual ideal which cannot be maintained in the physical world. The facets of Wunjo that we are able to experience in life are thought of as minor tastes of what was promised in Valhalla: a purity of pleasure and spiritual contentment.

How to Interpret “Wunjo”

Success and achievement of a goal. The attainment of desire, possibly a person, a monetary desire, or otherwise. Fantasies are soon to be fulfilled when this rune appears. One must be careful that the desires in this rune do not give rise to an obsessive nature. Too much focus can be placed on the end goal rather than the means of achieving it. The appearance of this rune may indicate a need to stop and reassess — to take measure of the object of one’s pursuits. Wunjo reminds us that some fantasies are best left to the realm of fantasy. Cautionary notes aside, Wunjo is a rune of great happiness and deserved celebration. It is an indication to enjoy all that it has to offer. Success and the true rewards of a job well done. Wunjo may also indicate a conflict that has not yet occured — but will prove beneficial — and ultimately result in victory, joy and material gain. ultimately result in victory, joy and material gain.

Inverted Meaning

A goal takes longer to reach than was expected. A journey towards a goal is painful. The need to try harder in order to realize one’s dreams. There is a definite need to reassess the end goal and ensure that it is the right one when one sees Wunjo inverted.

It seems that the weekends are the only time we have to work on it. We got some more new merchandise in and decided a new way of you seeing it. We have started a section called, “Buy One, Get One Free.” We have added quite a few new items in that section. There is nothing wrong with the merchandise, we just wanted to give you the opportunity to get some great merchandise at decent prices. There are some unusual items there and we plan on adding more, we will let you look for yourself. But the prices on this new merchandise is reduced for the time being and I guarantee you that they won’t stay at these prices for long. So if you see something you like, grab it now before it moves over and the price goes up.

 

We have also added a few new gowns and cloaks. I could spend all day looking at the new gowns and cloaks. There are some gorgeous ones that are coming out this year and we are going to do our best to keep them at affordable prices. Remember they are all custom made to fit you perfectly. You will be the best dress witch at your next Full Moon or Sabbat gathering.

Till tomorrow, my sweets…..

School Shooting in Florida 17 Dead and 15 Woundef

I ask farmhouses positive energy and prayers to the victims families and the other students and faculty members touched by the horrible tragedy. The following article comes from the Washington Post this morning.

He had been getting treatment at a mental health clinic, but he had stopped. He had been expelled from school for discipline problems. Many of his acquaintances had cut ties in part because of his unnerving Instagram posts and reports that he liked shooting animals. His father died a few years ago, and his mother, among the only people with whom he was close, died around Thanksgiving. He was living in a friend’s house. He was showing signs of depression.

And Nikolas Cruz, 19, had a fascination with guns. He owned an AR-15 assault-style rifle.

Though school officials, students and others who knew him were aware that something was off with Cruz, it is unclear if anyone had a full picture of what was building within him in recent months. Had everyone who knew of his struggles sat down in a room and compared notes about his recent past, perhaps an alarm would have sounded ahead of what emerged on Valentine’s Day, when Cruz allegedly walked into a suburban South Florida high school and carried out one of the nation’s deadliest school shootings.

“Weird” was the word students had used for Cruz since middle school. At first “it was nothing alarming,” said Dakota Mutchler, 17, who attended middle school with Cruz, adding that there was something “a little off about him.” But that was it — for a while.

As Cruz transitioned into high school, he “started progressively getting a little more weird,” Mutchler told The Washington Post. Cruz, he said, was selling knives out of a lunchbox, posting on Instagram about guns and killing animals, and eventually “going after one of my friends, threatening her.”

On Wednesday night, Mutchler recalled Cruz as an increasingly frightening figure, being suspended from school repeatedly, before he was expelled last year. “When someone is expelled,” Mutchler said, “you don’t really expect them to come back. But, of course, he came back.”

He came back to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School with a vengeance, according to the Broward County sheriff, who identified Cruz as the gunman who marched through the school with an AR-15 assault-style rifle, killing 17 people and wounding at least 15 others. He has since been booked on 17 counts of premeditated murder in connection with the deaths.

For the rest of the article you can go to the Washington Post newspaper website.

A Thought for Today

Meditation is important not just for getting messages from your guides but to help you find your true self under all the layers we put on to be the way society makes as think we should talk, think, and act like.

Sit in a quite room with no distractions and just let your thoughts go whatever they want. You may want a pen and paper handy to jot down thoughts and/or feelings you want explore deeper. Soon just like an onion as you peal away the layers you will find new layers of yourself!

I am here to “listen” if something comes out that you want to talk about. We can even set up a time to meet in our chat room or have a live conversation using Skype.

Blessed be dear ones.
