A Thought for Today

Keeping your internal elements in balance is more important as when you work with them for a spell and/or ritual.

This balance helps you to have a deeper relationship with the universal energies and feel a oneness with our divine Gods and Goddesses.

Blessed be dear brothers and sisters.

A Chuckle To Start Your Week

I’m always on the lookout this time of year as society turns one of our Sabbats into a secular day to find Witchy knick-knacks, coffee cups, or anything that as a witch I think is appropriate to own…plus I have a thing for collecting unusual coffee mugs and cups. Here is one of the two cups I have found this year…’

Blessings of love and peacefulness dear sisters and brothers.

May the Goddess Bless You & Yours With A Very Beautiful & Relaxing Saturday Morning! As for me, it is work as usual…..

Witches Of The Craft®

Good morning, my dear brothers & sisters of the Craft! I hope everyone is having a great Saturday so far. It is a working day for me as usual. I gave everyone else the day off and I am going to revamp our store. I haven’t never been totally satisfied with the way it looks and I know I can do better. I am going to tear her down and build her back up today, I hope!

I did want to call your attention to one thing though. Around here in the evenings, we watch FOX News. I know some of you have called FOX News purely entertainment news. But we each have our own opinions and you know what people say about opinions. After a very long day I was getting ready to go to bed. One of the boys were catching up on the News and ran across…

Letter to the Tucker Carlson Show on Fox News

Witches Of The Craft®

Mr. Carlson,
My husband and I are fans of your show and we watch it almost every night. I was getting ready to go to bed Friday night, when my husband called my attention to some of your talking points for your show that evening. One of the topics especially caught my attention and I stayed up to listen. This topic was in regards to the Witches of Brooklyn holding a “hexing” ritual for Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

You see the topic interested me because I am a witch myself. I am also the founder of an online organization known as Witches of the Craft. We have a following of over 34 million people. Our organization makes up all Religions and Traditions. We have members that are Witches, Wiccans, Baptists, Christians and Catholics. We welcome anyone who is a witch or even just interested in learning about our ways…

Egyptian Afterlife – The Field of Reeds

If  the soul passed through the Weighing of the Heart it moved on to a path which led to Lily Lake (also known as the Lake of Flowers). There are, again, a number of versions of what could happen on this path where, in some, one finds dangers to be avoided and gods to help and guide while, in others, it is an easy walk down the kind of path one would have known back home. At the shore of Lily Lake the soul would meet the Divine Ferryman, Hraf-hef (He-Who-Looks-Behind-Him) who was perpetually unpleasant. The soul would have to find some way to be courteous to Hraf-hef, no matter what unkind or cruel remarks he made, and show one’s self worthy of continuing the journey.

Magical Herbs, Plants and Foods for Protection

I was recently asked about the best herbs to use for protection.   My answer to any question along the lines of ‘what herbs are best to use’ is to go with your intuition.  Trust it.  What works for some might not work so well for others.  There are of course some ‘standard’ (for want of a better word) herbs that can be used for the magical purpose of protection but I wholeheartedly believe that it will work better if you choose it based on your own gut instinct.  And of course, what you have in the house or garden and that won’t cost you the earth to purchase.

However, having said that and being asked specifically for a list…here are my herb/plant suggestions, this can be in fresh or dried form or as essential oils, scented wax or incense sticks:

A Deep Dive into Animism

The very term animism was used by early anthropologists to conjure a more “primitive” world before the eyes of their readers. But there is another part to the conversation.

To be an animist means to understand that the worlds of both the spirit and the physical exist. The two can be experienced, side-by-side. This attitude is not a matter of religion, or belief. It becomes, in time, a matter of  phenomenology, and eventually simple practicality.

Gods Behaving Badly? Myth, Virtue, and the Limitations of Modern Thinking

In a comment to last week’s post A Conclave of Cats: Debating the Nature of the GodsDean Smith said

“Do you believe all the Gods have what you would consider good virtues and values only? Or like humans have a mixture of virtues and vices?

Some stories of Them would definitely display what our current society would consider horrible behavior. What is your take on this?”

‘THINK on THESE THINGS’ for October 6

‘THINK on THESE THINGS’

By Joyce Sequichie Hifler

Remember all those time when you make three trips to the other room to get something, and before you got there you had already forgotten what it was? Didn’t the thought of age dimming your memory enter your mind at those times?

There’s really no need to waste time thinking that way. It is not the case of a scattered memory, but a skittery mind, jumping from one subject to another with only circumstances to remind you.

And haven’t you awakened sharply in the middle of the night because suddenly you remembered something you should have done, or something you must do? Age again? No, it was the only time your subconscious mind ever found you quiet enough to remind you of something you wanted to remember.

Life would be so much more orderly if we took several minutes night and morning…
