Week 29 – Goddess Knowledge – Lady of the Lake

As in many traditions in which a goddess bestows kingship, a mysterious Celtic goddess, gave King Arthur the sword Excalibur and thus established his power and his right to be king. Before he died, Arthur restored the sword her, and it now remains with her beneath the waters deep.

Water, the source of all life, has long been the domain of the goddess. Lakes representing the source of creative power and the land of the dead, life-giving and death or renewal being the two main functions of the goddess. Water indicates both consciousness and revelation. The Lady of the Lake is a guide to the mysterious realms of emotion and renewal, a source of immense creativity. She can give us the energy we need to rule our lives.

A Thought for Today

I pulled this from an older post because it fits with my post of yesterday.

We can help the most by showing society we are peaceful, loving people just like everyone should be.

We can help be leading by example living in harmony with Mother Earth and doing all we can to help her heal. Such as recycling anything we use that has that option, pick up others track including cigarette butts when out for a walk or hiking. Use earth friendly laundry soap, liquid fabric softener, dish soap, body soap (bar or gel), shampoo, paper products made at least in part with recycled paper.

We can help by saying hi or just smiling at people We walk pass or inter act with.

Please share your thoughts or things you already do to live in better harmony with all living things. Especially the talking humans who can really get under your skin.

Today’s Open Chat

I am canceling the Open Chat scheduled for 6:00-800 PM CDT this evening. I am sorry for the short notice but I thought the 102+F temperature I have again would go away with OTC medication or White Willow Bark tea no such luck. My medical doctor who is very open to non-existent forms of medicine and treatments plus holistic healers and myself are still trying to figure out what is wrong. A spirit brother of mine, White Wolf, asked if it could possibly be a hex, curse, or voodoo doll/poppet been sent at me or being used against me by a voodoo practitioner from Louisiana, USA that is very pissed off that I took over WOTC. This person and I had many runs in the last couple of years while she was “helping” with OTC. I took the suggestion under consideration than made sure that wasn’t what was wrong because all my protection wards for my property, home, and myself include a thick layer set up to make sure no matter where I am or what I am doing in this plane or any astral pain anything she would try to send my way bounced off like hitting a balloon and goes right back at her.

I do not recommend trying to do a spell of this type until you have been a practicing spellcaster for sometime because if it goes wrong the original spell that was sent to harm you will come back at you 9 times stronger.

All Esbats, Open Chats, and Sabbats for September will be held no matter how I feel.

Blessed be dear ones.

A Thought for Today

d8677d73877ece2fe0d7a5f3c21474c2--magick-spells-witchcraft

We are not some secret society that sacrifices babies or animals.

Most of us will never put a hex or curse on a person, place, or animal.

We respect the religion of others and do try to not condemn them or their beliefs or to force our beliefs onto them.

As Witches and/or Pagans we are usually much more intuned with Gaia/Mother Earth then those of “main stream” religions and there for respect and as much as we can to live in harmony with her and allthe living things.

Always take responsibility for anything you say or do. If you wrong someone it is your place to apologize to make things right again. Even if after doing this you decide to cut the person totally out of your life forever. We do not have commandments but we do have a Witches Rede summed up in 8 words

Do as you will, less it harm none

The “none” includes yourself, domestic animals, wildlife from the on, above, and under the ground, oceans, lakes, any water ways, that live and fly in the air, slither in the sand and/or crawl on top or below the ground and most of all another human. Once again take responsibility for your words and/or actions as harm maybe caused to yourself or others in many ways mentally, physically, emotionally or any combination of these.

As you do spells and/or rituals, if it is for others ask their permission first, keep in mind the Threefold Law as know as The Rule of Three. Remember this means any of your words and/or actions good or back will in someway come -back to you three times stronger then when you spoke unlikely or kindly, when an action had negative or positive consequences to another living thing. This is not a Witches law/rule just for spells but the path you walk daily.  Never do a spell that will take away even a miniscule part of another person’s free will.

I ask each of you reading this to stop a thinking for a couple of minutes if any of you actions and/or words were harmful to anyone you came into contact with in the last couple of weeks. If you have I challenge you to live by the Reds and Threefold Law to take responsibility for the wrong you did and give the person or persons a sincere apology.

May you find love, happiness, peace, and harmony everyday.

 

August 16th Full Moon Esbat Gathering

Our Esbat is being led by our adept Dawn of the Day this month. Please read completely through the ritual so you will know what you need and how the ritual will flow. Thank you.  Lady Beltane

WHEN:

Thursday, August 16, 2019

Social hour 6:00 to 6:59 PM Central Time

Sacred Circle cast at 7:00 PM Central Time

WHERE:

Coven Life’s Chatroom

Full moon ritual for releasing negativity

 

This months full moon ritual will be to help cleanse yourself from negativity and anger.  Everyone has been hurt physically, emotionally, mentally and this is the time to release the negativity and anger from ourselves.  Some of this negativity is caused by our very own actions, we are often our worse critics, but also from the action of others. We are doing this so we can start the healing process and bring more happiness and positivity to ourselves.

 

The full moon is when the positive energy is the strongest and we have the best chance of letting go of anger and negativity and start the healing process and start being more positive so that we can continue to grow in all aspects.

 

Please as we do this ritual place on your altars some of the things that help you the most to be in one with the gods.  These can be candles, incense, stones, bowls, flower petals, gentle colors, water, or something to remind you of the proper season.  For each of us our altars are unique so please use what you need. You will need a couple pieces of paper, a fire source and a place to burn these safely.

 

As our ritual starts please sit or stand in front of the altar.  If possible place your altar outside but as you are there do not let your shadow fall over the altar

 

This is what I will do but will not say. To start the ritual I would first move my altar to the middle of the room making sure the point of the star pointed northeast, I would then sage the altar and the room to cleans the area.  I would then place on the alter my statue of Hekate for my goddess and a piece of antler that I use to represent odin. I would then place a white candle to represent the spirit in the northeast point, moving clockwise I would then use a feather to symbolize air in the east, usually a small red candle to represent fire in the south, water in the west and salt to represent the north.

 

I would add to my altar the different things of abundance/harvest for my area that is corn and apples and a cup of apple cider and some homemade bread.  I would also add either a couple candles or pieces of cloth colors of green and gold to represent the season.

 

I would do this all in private before the ritual actually started as all witches set their altars up in a unique way, although I would suggest some grain or other materials that are in season to be harvested.

 

I will open the ritual by saying I call the watchtower of the East and I ask Auriel to help protect this circle and empower the work within my circle.

I call the watchtower of the South and I ask Gabriel to help protect this circle and empower the work within my circle.

I call the watchtower of the West and I ask Raphael to help protect this circle and empower the work within my circle.

I call the watchtower of the North and I ask Michael to help protect this circle and empower the work within my circle.

 

I will then say I travel 3 times around our circle brothers and sisters in a clockwise manner to seal our circle so we are safe to do this ritual.  I start in the east and point at the ground first and walk clockwise saying I close this circle with earth that no harm may come to anyone inside or outside of this circle. I will then point to the ceiling and say I close this circle with air so that no harm may come to anyone inside or outside of this circle,  then finally at shoulder level  I will say I close this circle with fire that no harm may come to anyone inside or outside of this circle.

 I would then say what is above is below our circle is formed may it may be opened but never broken.

I will then say i welcome the element of air by touching a feather and thank them for helping me with this circle .  Next will then welcome the element of fire by lighting a candle and thank them for helping me with this circle. I will then welcome water by touching the element and thank them for helping me with this circle and then to the north i will welcome the earth by touching that element and thank them for helping me with this circle.

I would then welcome the goddess (Hekate) and the god (Odin) to the circle and thanking them for attending and helping me with my work.

We have sealed the circle please use a couple of minutes here to calm your breathing, set up your gems light candles, and take a couple of deep breathes as you relax.  Visualize positive energy entering into your body from the ground and starting to heal you.

Please everyone type the word done and we will move to the next step.

Please get out your 2 pieces of paper on one piece please write down all the negative that you want to dispose of concentrate for several minutes and make sure you write anything and everything down that you wish to be rid of.   On the 2nd piece of paper write down all the positives. These are things that you want to continue, this is letting the universe know that you are thankful for them. The full moon in this case is acting as an agent/witness in contract with the universe.

Please type done when this is finished

Take the list of the negatives and safely light it and as it burns imagine all these things leaving your body like a toxin that has had an antidope applied, imagine as these things leaving your body, as that happens your body replaces these with positives.  As this happens repeat something like: Dear Universe, I no longer need these things the lessons have been learned and I am ready to move past these things and bring more positivity into my heart so good things will happen in the future.

When finished type done

Now take the 2nd list and carefully light this, imagine all the positives that are on this list and think about how positives will trigger more positives.  Make sure your heart is open and you are being honest and say something to the effect of with positives more positives will be spawned, my heart is open to these possibilities.  May these positives help me to be more present, to serve better, and to keep my eyes and heart open to all the positives around me

Now brothers and sisters lets take a minute or 2 just to sit relax and meditate on this knowing that positive energy will bring more positive energy and that with patience good things will come about

When you are finished please type done

 

I will then say our work is done, thank you Hekate for working with us today and with the utmost gratitude please return from where you came.  I will then say thank you Odin and with the utmost gratitude for working with us today please return from where he came. I will then say as i touch the element, I dismiss the earth and thank them for participating in the ritual.  I then will say I dismiss the element of water as I touch it and thank them for participating in our ritual. I will then say I dismiss fire as I snuff out my candle and thank you for participating in our ritual. I would then say I dismiss air as i touch the feather again and say thank you for participating in our ritual.

 

I will then say thank you to Michael and please return from where you came, I will then thank Raphael and please return from where you came, I will then thank Gabriel and ask them to return from where they came and finally Auriel and ask them to return from where they came.

 

 I will then rotate counterclockwise first at shoulder level thanking fire for protecting our circle.  I will then point to the ceiling and thank air for protecting our circle and finally point to the ground and thank earth for protecting our circle.  I will then hold my palms flat out to the ground and say all residual energy please release back into mother earth to help heal her.

 I will then say brothers and sisters our ritual is over please go in peace and know that our circle is open but never broken, blessed be.

A Thought for Today

HappyColor_10532

This is me. If my doctor does not call me this evening my heart should be in fairly good shape. If she does call I will be asking you my dear ones for prayers and healing candles to be lit. As soon as I know something so will you.

I will get the Goddess Knowledge card up for you tomorrow.

Until we meet again blessed be my dear ones.

The Moon

Continuing from the previous post of aligning with Universal Powers for effective magickal practices…….

In this post I will be discussing the second of the Sacred Seven that I have been mentioning in the previous posts, the Moon.

As a practitioner of the Craft, the Moon is by far the most influential in my life.

Where does one start describing the essence of their own Psyche that is such a significant part of this incredible celestial energy?

Just like everything that exists on this earth and in the cosmos, the Moon shows its energy, its influence and its power through its phases, influencing the ever-evolving soul or what the ancient Greeks called the Psyche. Each Moon phase has an influence according to the Energy, Frequency and Vibration omitted by the rest of the celestial sphere. NOTHING stands alone, EVERYTHING is connected.

Moon magick is an experience that teaches you that nothing is separate and that everything is connected. It allows you to see deep into not only your own soul but that of the Great Mother and the Cosmos.

Moon magick to me is ‘Moon Medicine’. One that heals the body, spirit and soul, remembering that all three are one. By practicing Moon Medicine one learns the rhythm of the self that is connected to that of the earth and beyond.  A true Witch is connected to the moon through this Moon Medicine and understands its connection to the healing aspect of the self and all those around him/her.

The true strength in understanding the Moon is by learning what it affects. The herbs, flowers, plants that are at their most potent in the evening and at what phases of the moon they are their most active. Which animals are at their most active and what is it that they do and why they do it.

The Moon’s gravitational pull has an enormous influence on all our water ways and the earth’s core. The waterways such as the lakes, rivers and oceans have an important influence and impact on the earth’s weather system. Study the way human beings act at certain times of the month. The best way to do this is to start with yourself.

Moon Diary

Begin by creating a moon diary, one that shows you the different phases of the moon and the seasons. In the diary you can add your magickal herb correspondence for that particular month, your spell work, your meditations done, your rituals and of course your feelings and emotions. You could also add the celestial influences of that month such as planets, asteroids eclipses, retrogrades and so forth. You can add your personal observations of people around you, animal and plant life. Add any further readings that you have done that have influenced your magickal work. I know from personal observation that at certain times of the month I’m drawn to do certain things, go certain places and read or research certain books and subjects.

You could say that it is a little like a Grimoire, well it is, and it is that of the moon and its magick……

As everything is connected, the Moon Journal or Diary is there to help you connect to the energy of the Moon and that of everything that is influenced by it.

The Different Phases of the Moon.

Psyche

One of the most important human aspects in the essence that is influenced by the Moon is that of the Psyche.

In fact Psyche was a Goddess in ancient Greece that was the personification of the soul, one that was attributed to the Feminine Spiritual and Psychological growth, and no it’s not only for the female, it’s the Feminine, one that is imprinted in both men and women. This is where the origins of the word Psychology comes from.

Planetary Correspondences of the Moon

The list really is long…….

However I will only mention just a couple of bits of information that you might be interested in doing further research.

Colors

Blue, white, orange, red, yellow

Herbs oils and incense

Sandalwood, rose, cedar, frankincense, hyssop, orange, rosewood, yarrow, night jasmine, sage, tea tree, all night shades, evening primrose and WOW the list goes on……

Crystals

Moon stones, selenite (named after the Goddess Selene which is the personification of the moon), amber, opal, rose quarts, quartz, obsidian

Moon magick bath salts to help you relax just before or after a ritual

I cup sea salt

8 Drops frankincense

8 Drops sandalwood

Mix together. Place in an airtight container. Place 1-3 tablespoons in your bath.
