Once the circle starts ALL SOCIALIZING AND COMMENTS unless asked for in the ritual must stop. You will get one warning if you break this guideline. If you do it a second time you will be asked to and expected to leave the gathering immediately. There will be no exceptions to this guideline.
No one should enter or leave the chat room between 7:15 until the circle is finished. To enter or leave the chat room (computer knocking you out of the chat room during this time is the only exception for re-entering the circle) during this time breaks the circle and whoever is leading the circle needs to take their time and energy to close it up again.
All electronics in the room you are in during the gathering should be shut off except for the device you are using to access the chat room.
No one will be allowed to use foul and/or rude language in the chat room either before during or after the sacred circle. Anyone not following this guideline will be blocked from the chat room and no second chance will be given to attend another gathering.
Anyone attending a gathering is welcome to stay after the circle is done to visit with the others and/or offer other ideas for the ritual performed at that gathering for as long as you like.
These are simple guidelines and show courtesy to all coven members and visitors. If you have any questions about them please write to Lady Beltane at email@example.com
Who’s Lady Carla Beltane
Merry meet, I am Lady Carla Beltane. I am a legally ordained Pagan minister. I as Wiccan and became a High Priestess but, now practice as an eclectic solitary witch. My spirituality has influences from different traditions of Wiccan, as well as Ancient Egyptian, Celtic (both German and Irish) and Native American traditions. I was the High Priestess for two covens which gave birth to hive-covens from my own and then hive-covens from these. (A hive-coven is one where a witch becomes a Priest or Priestess under the guidance of a High Priest and/or Priestess to then start their own coven.)
I am a hereditary witch from both sides of my family, although neither side were practicing pagans I did learn about herbs for healing and other usages from my great-grandmothers on my father’s side. I learn not to be afraid of the ghosts I saw and heard from my mother who also had this ability.
I have been a practicing pagan for over 40 years. I became a solitary witch about 20 years ago but still helped guide young novice witches on their path. Teaching them not only the magickal parts of The Craft such as potions, spells, and rituals but also help them along the Old Ways a.k.a. a pagan spiritual path.
In my personal life, I am the mother of five grown children who have blessed me a 8 grandchildren so far. I live with my husband of over 16 years and my two dog familiars, Cleopatra, a Miniature Pinscher and Starbabie, a Chihuahua. I enjoy many hobbies including but not limited to hiking, camping, crocheting, reading, playing computer games, coloring, and gardening.

I have been a medium all my life. Born and raised into a very strong “Catholic Family”. I’m the middle child of 9 siblings. 4 Brothers and 4 Sisters. My father was a Veteran of the Korean War. He is and was my Hero who passed away on September 15 2014. My Mother is still with us, living a Private Life in Colorado.. *(due to the fact) this subject is very close to their hearts and they are my world, I choose not include their names! “If you know me then you Know who they are!
I discovered my gift at a very young age. “However,” I did not understand or except it well and in fact tried everything in my power to STOP it or destroy it. I had a bout w/ a medical illness and several traumatic experiences which included the Death of my Daughter and my Beloved. I cannot recall my child hood and several memories as of recent have escaped me… However, Spirit seeing and hearing has never left me. As a child my mother was very fearful of my gift and tried to take me to a priest, a witch and several healers (to Include Doctors) all to no avail. I was admitted into the State hospital after several failed suicide attempts. I was desperate not to be as odd, strange or weird as people called and taunted me with names, because I spoke with and saw DEAD PEOPLE!! (Imaginary friends). To soften the judgments I began by telling very creative stories that always ended with “To Be Continued…..
(Not all the kids), teased me, I have become very close with several of them. They are now as they were then some of my closest friends.
In 1980 MJ/ Stregga High Priestess and Elder of the Sicilian Strega line of the Craft of the Wise, Under the direction of the founder and Head Mother of Our Lord and Lady of the Trinacrian Rose Church, Inc., Hereditary Elder High Priestess — Lori Bruno… aka Nona based in the Commonwealth of Mass in Salem, MA.
I started practicing “witch craft” and soon found it could be evil” however guided by strong women I continued and became initiated as a witch. I shared my experiences thoughts and ideals with my Father, my Best Friend, he would offer comfort and tell me to walk softly and carry a BIG stick. (Follow the light).
In 1985 I started excepting my gift after the death of my 2nd child Michael (a little girl) Born on Nov 26 and died a few hours later in a car accident with my beloved. During my grief and loss, I started reading studying and developing my gifts.
In 1987 I became quite ill with cancer and had a NDE (Near Death Experience) at that time I was directed to come back and complete my work… A near-death experience is a conscious experience in which the individual experiences a sense of being detached from the physical world during the process of physiological dying. Individuals may experience their own physiological dying’s and deaths and at the same time become aware of their disembodied existences in an altered state where they may experience a sense of peace, a separation of consciousness from the body, entering darkness, seeing a light, meeting spiritual entities, having a panoramic life review, and a sense of judging their lives (Moody, 1975; Morse, 1990, Ring, 1980).

Who is Hypatia?
Who is Tharem?
Merry Meet, I am Tharem. I amt Priest student under Lady Beltane.
I been Practicing for a couple of years now. I been studying the craft since 2007. I was not until I came to Lady Beltane I started the practicing within a coven. Before I was a wiccan, I practiced Christianity with questions growing that that religion couldn’t answer. It was when I started considering wiccan life, these questions being answered and gave me stronger hold to Wicca. The first book I got was from D.J. Conway. Then my book collection grows from there.
I, then started looking for wiccan group online. It was not until I found a coven until I got here on CovenLife, I found CovenLife site through the Witches of the Craft site. I am pleased that Lady Beltane took me under her wing.
