Blessed be sisters and brothers.
Blessed be sisters and brothers.
I woke to see Ra shinning down on us after being buried behind nasty storm clouds for the past week. The temperature is a balmy 70F with Air providing g a gentle breeze. The only drawback is for those of us allergic to mold spores which are out in full force. I’ll still take this gift of this beautiful day and I just take some allergy medicine. I’m writing this while sitting outside watching my almost 4-year-old grandson play. Plus because of the Maple tree in their yard, I was able to explain where big trees come from. The seed from any Maple tree has about a 1/2 inch seed encased in a thing that looks like a wing sort of. As kids, we called them “whirlybirds.” There was also a couple of small new birth twigs with 3 different size leaves on them, so we talked about how trees and the leaves on them start out small like any baby and geta bigger as they get older.

Then we watched, played, and talked about where ants live and what they might eat. I had yo hold in my laughter when he asked me if I would make lunch for the ant so the 2 of them could have a picnic. LOL
Next came the different birds he pointed out. Some of them I could tell him the name of others not. Time for grandma to learn the names of the birds that are in this area.
The most important part of these in prompt to lessons was how important it is to respect everything that is gifted to us by Mother Earth/Gaia and that we should live in harmony with the plants, animals, birds, insects, etc that are around us instead of helping to destroy our Blessed Mother. When school is out for summer and break it is time for me to take these 2 grandsons, the one I’m with has a 6-year-old brother, on walks with trash bags in hand to pick up whatever garbage other people leave out of laziness, apathy, and zero respect for the living breathing entity shaped like a huge ball floating in space as a solitary planet called me earth by those who don’t realize she is the Mother that nurtures us.
I ask that where ever you may go by foot or bicycle to please take some type of disposable bag with you, you know the ones you have to bring groceries and other things home in, and either gloves and/or hand sanitizer than pick up behind those that are less caring about our Mother than I know you are. I use desirable bags for shopping now I like many are on a tight budget, even tighter now with buying WOTC, so each month I saved my change in a container and than counted before leaving to go shopping the next month. Whatever it added up to I would use it to buy as many reusable shopping bags as I could. I even saved enough over 2 months to be able to have an insulated bag for my freezer stuff. Now I’m saving to get another insulated bag for refrigerator stuff. That way if my hubby and I have other errands to run I do not have the to be concerned about as much with possible spoilage or melting.
Well, dear ones I will only be putting up short posts this week because of buying Witches of The Craft website and having to go through all the links LAdy Abyss sent me that the WOTC uses. I hope to have postings on both websites back to somewhat normal by the beginning of next week. I could use some help from you dear brothers and sisters by sending me calming, positive thoughts because right now I feel like I am on my broomstick way up in the clouds somewhere and really need to get re-centered and grounded. I don’t think until I got up this morning and saw the email with all the links that it really sunk in what I have done and honestly I am not sure it has totally sunk in yet.
Coven Life’s school, posts, gatherings, and open chats will not have any major changes. This sites may purpose will still be teaching new witches about the ways of practicing The Craft safely and with a firm foundation. Then on to more advanced studies if the persons choose to. Witches of The Craft will still mainly be for divination and more advanced type of magickal information.
So please just bear with me until I get a schedule going for posting on the two websites. Thank you!
Blessed be dear sisters and brothers.
I have been using this method on and off for many years. I had stopped when I had minor knee surgery in November 2018 and the place I was working closed their doors for good on December 20, 2018, not because they wanted to but because the bank that had foreclosed on the strip mall it was located in decided after 7 years to kick all the businesses still operating out and being a small restaurant the funds needed to open in a different location were not available, these are two of the things that helped to contribute to me once again going into a major depression and anxiety/ panic attacks coming back into my life. I allowed myself to become more focused on negative things in my life then the positive things. Usually I am an optimistic person unless I stop doing the things that keep me this way. The method I explain below is a very important part of my spiritual path and mental health.
This method of balancing or centering and ground yourself requires getting up just as the Sun breeches the horizon. So it is not for those who like to sleep in some.
Go outside and stand on the grass, dirt, sand, or whatever direct contact you can to Mother Earth/Gaia (1) as close as possible to being in between the rising Sun/Ra/Savitr(Hindu name of God at sunrise and sunset) (2) and the setting Moon/Triple Goddess/Luna (3).
Say hello to and state your intention to ground to which ever Earth Goddess name you choose. Thank the Earth Goddess for her grounding and energy.
Say hello to which ever Sun God name you choose while facing the direction the Sun is rising. Thank the Sun God for his warmth and energy.
Next turn to the direction where the Moon Goddess is. Say hello to whatever name of the Moon Goddess you choose. Thank the Moon Goddess for her guidance and energy.
After I am grounded well and start to feel centered I open myself up to The Great Mother and Great Father asking them to cleanse all negativity, fear, anger, pain, and whatever else comes to mind all the way down to my cellular level. To push it down my body into Mother Earth to rejuvenate and renew it into positive energy to use however she needs to. For me I can actually feel energy moving through out my body and into my legs and my legs feel heavy once they no longer feel that way I know all the negativity has left me during this grounding, centering, and balancing meditation. It can vary from a few minutes up to a half hour or so, it depends on how much needs to be cleaned out of you. After my legs feel normal again I ask to be filled with love, kindness, less physical pain, and positive energy.
The first time I decided to do this to help me out of the depression, isolation, and anxiety I was feeling I had to sit down because my legs were trembling with all the negativity I was expelling and I was afraid I might fall. Once I sat down I also sent a shoot out from my root chakra to help ground me better which had the side affect of unblocking and cleansing all my chakras. It took me about 2 to 3 days of doing this at sunrise and sunset to rid myself of all the negative thoughts and feelings I let myself build up over 4 months. I now am ready to face whatever the Universe sends my way and be a leader by example again for my coven.
My heartfelt thanks to Priestess Hypatia for taking over for me so I had time to get back to being me. I also owe a debt of gratitude to Lady of the Abyss of WOTC for taking time out of her busy schedule to post on our site. I am thankful and honored that so many people took those time to send me encouraging emails and comments. It is good to be back with you all again.
May you all be blessed with good things in your life. Blessed be dear ones, Lady Beltane

As I have been working my way out of the hole I fell into with my depression and anxiety disorder, I have discovered a couple of new mystery authors. The book I’m just starting to read Taking Liberty by Keith Houghton on what is usually the dedication page a question appears instead. Before I give you the question that is asked I thought I would give you my answers first, “If it was for someone close to me I would gladly do it, especially for my grandchildren and other people younger than me that I love. If it was for an casual friend or a stranger, once again especially if they are young, I still probably would.” r
Have I caught your attention ?
Are you curious of what the question is?
The question that appears as you begin reading this book is — “Could you give your life to save someone else?”
As a mother, grand mother, wife, and minister I like to think that I would definitely carry through with the answers I gave to this question. But one thing that is part of all animals, yes I’m including humans as animals, survival is a basic instinct woven into all our DNA. So I think unless we are actually in this position we do not really know what we are capable of. When men and women join their countries armed forces, every time a police officer or fire fighter,and any other first responders are called to a natural or unnatural disaster they go to work they go knowing they may never return home again.
As witches we do protection spells and make different styles of amulets or jewelry to give us a little more chance to come out of a bad or possibly fatal situation then other people. At least this is what I believe. I also believe no one no matter what their age is will cross into the Summerland before they are suppose to unless they choose to do so while saving someone else’s life.
So I ask you, “Could you give your life to save someone else?” Why or why not? Take the time to really examine what your heart, mind, and spirit would do.
Blessed be Sisters and brothers
