The Earth is Our Mother Chant

This is a beautiful chant I found a cpouple of years ago. I recommend doing it outside. If you have a regular drum join in drumming. You can also use a plastic bowl turned upside down and a wooden spoon for drumming. Think of positive energy  flowing into Mother Earth for her healing while doing the chant. Chant as long as you feel the wanr to. I than sit and meditate for a while on all the wounderful things she gives us and all the beings and creatures that live on and in her. I hope you enjoy this chant as much as I do.

May Esbat Ritual Tuesday, May 29, 2018 at 7:00 PM CT

May’s Esbat ritual is written by and will be lead by our adept Maia.

WHEN:

Tuesday, May 29. 2018

Socializing starts at 6:45 PM CT

Circle Cast at 7:15 PM CT SHARP

Please do not enter or leave chatroom once the circle has been cast unless you lose your connection or an emergency arises.

WHERE:

Coven Life’s Chatroom

What you will need:

A purple candle. (If you don’t have purple, use white)

Lighter or matches.

An amulet  (preferably small enough to hold in your hand).

As we will be doing a ritual for protection, you may want to decorate your altar with lavender, amethyst, or other items you may have that are purple.

RITUAL

Tonight we are honoring the full moon, known as the Hare Moon. There are many legends and folk tales of the hare and the image of him on the moon. In most, it is a tale of virtue that brings good fortune to the person that unselfishly gives of himself to help others. A great lesson to learn. It is a moon of abundance, growth, and protection. We will use this energy to empower an amulet to provide protection. I will now call the Watchtowers.

MAIA: I call the Watchtower of the East to protect those inside and outside our circle today.

I call upon the Watchtower of the South to protect those inside and outside our circle today.

I call upon the Watchtower of the West to protect those inside and outside our circle today.

I call upon the Watchtower of the North to protect those inside and outside our circle today.

Please open your quarters and please hear our call.

I call upon Spirit to guide us in peace and love.

I ask the Goddess Diana to walk this circle three times three to lend us her power and energy as we gather here today. Let us come together and celebrate the lunar Goddess and the power she brings.

Merry greet brothers and sisters of the craft.

EVERYONE: Please type your name and country you live in.

MAIA: We gather here this day to ask the Goddess for protection from harm to our physical or mental well being. Let no one cause injury or heartache to our body or soul and may we be mindful to not cause pain for others.

EVERYONE: Please light your candle.

Please hold the item you have chosen to empower in your hands. Close your eyes and feel the item. See the item in your mind’s eye. Envision a protective barrier surrounding the item. Take 2 minutes to make the item your own personal amulet.

EVERYONE: When ready, type As I will it So Mote It Be!

Carry your amulet to feel protected or if it is large, place it by the front door of your house. It can be on a chain on your neck, hang from your rearview mirror, on a keychain, etc. Remember the power your amulet holds is the energy you have given it….recharge it by holding it in your hand and meditating.

MAIA: I dismiss the Watchtower of the East with thanks for their energy and protection here today.

I dismiss the Watchtower of the South with thanks for their energy and protection here today.

I dismiss the Watchtower of the West with thanks for their energy and protection here today.

I dismiss the Watchtower of the North with thanks for their energy and protection here today.

I dismiss Spirit from our circle with love and thanks.

I thank the Goddess Diana for her presence here today and for lending us her energy for protection. Please return from where you came.

Extinguish the candle safely.

The circle is open, but not broken. Go in perfect love and perfect trust.

Thank you, brothers and sisters, for joining us here today. Until Merry, we meet again.

Prayers for the Two School Shootings the Week

Dear Brothers and Sisters of The Craft,

Again this week we have children taking the lives of others. Earlier this week there was a shooting in Dixion, Illinois where last reported one student died and several people were injured. Than today in Santa Fe, Texas there was another shooting. The last I heard on the news there were right people dead and numerous injured.

If I still had children of school age I would be seriously considering home schooling them.

Let us join in mind and prayer for those grieving their loss not just for these two shooting but all of the ones that have happened so far in 2018. Let us also ask for all those that have been injured physically and mentally by these horrific crimes. Last but not least for protection of all students, teachers, and Scholl support staff to be safe from anymore senseless shootings. Sorry one more thing include the parents and families of the shooters as they shunned by their extended families, friends, neighbors, and the town’s they live in. They have lost a loved one also and most if not all do not understand why their child would become so imbalanced as to do these horrific crimes.

Thank you. Blessed be.

Alexandrian Wicca

British Wicca

A mix of Celtic and Gardenarian beliefs. Most famous organization at this time is the International Red Garters. British Traditionals move mostly from within the Farrar studies (the famous Witch husband and wife from England.) They too are fairly structured in their beliefs, and train through the degree process. Their covens are also co-ed.

 

Celtic Wicca

The use of a Celtic/Druidic pantheon mixed with a little ritual Gardnerian, and heavily stressing the elements, nature and the Ancient Ones. They had a vast knowledge of and respect for the healing and magickal qualities of plants and stones, flowers, trees, elemental spirits, the little people, gnomes and fairies.

Magic in Ancient Greece: Necromancy, Curses, Love Spells, and Oracles

The

magical traditions of ancient Greece encompassed spells, curse tablets, drugs, potions, poisons, amulets, and talismans. For many cultures of the past, there was a very fine line between magic, superstition, religion, and science. The ancient magicians were seen as symbols of wisdom, keepers of secrets, and masters of the arts, mathematics and science, particularly chemistry. Because magicians were believed to be individuals with access to supernatural powers, they were both feared and respected.

Spells and incantations had been used by the Egyptians for thousands of years and the Greeks carried this tradition forward, as evidenced by surviving Greek papyri containing magic records that date back to the 4th and 3rd century BC.

Bearing Thankfulness to the Elders that Taught Me Meditation

I have been a practising witch/pagan for over 40 years as a coven member, coven leader, and solitary witch. But at times of great stress as I have dealt with at work and I’m my personal life the last 10 days it still takes a reminder now and than to go back through the years to when I was a young witch learning The Craft.

I allowed myself until about an hour ago to be so stressed out I have hardly slept in 72 hours. Than my guides have me a figurative knock up the side of my head to light one of my two favorite incensed, sandalwood (the other being jasmine) find some soothing whale song/waves breaking music on YouTube as I was to keyed up to find my CD. Now I am almost relaxed enough to get a good night’s rest. If it was not for a couple of the Elders in the coven where I did my novice studies I would never have thought whale songs could be so beautiful and relaxing to listen to. I send a heartfelt thank you to my Elders. May your lives still be filled with joy, love, and a will to teach. Blessed be dear ladies!
