A Tought for More Than Just Today

Priestess Hypatia and got to talk for a while Wednesday late afternoon. Physically she and her family are. But just as probably most Australians emotionally tore up with what has happened to their beautiful country basically needlessly. If the government would have been listening to the ingenious residents of many centuries and allowed those, to my way of thinking, who are learned and professional bush burners to keep the land productive with controlled burns that do not kill and destroy needlessly.

Aboriginal method to control fire

I ask each person reading this to pray or talk to or however you choose to communicate with the God or Goddess of your choice asking that they help open the closed minds of those with power and even those without open their minds to listen to the elders that have had instructions handed down from generation to generation on how to burn the bush in a manner that is safe for Mother Earth and her inhabitants.

Priestess Hypatia also told me there is talk of the ingenious elders teaching people from the USA how to safely do controlled burning to keep us from having out of control wildfires. Which to me would be answering many Californians prayers, especially those that have lost everything in a wildfire some people more than once.

In Wisconsin when I was a child, as you enter it from another state, in most rest areas along major highways, and in other locations they have very big signs of Smokey the Bear with his ranger hat on and a dirt shovel in his hands with his famous saying “Only you can prevent forest fires.” and blow that the risk of fire for that day in different colors depending on the level of risk for a spark or a carelessly thrown out burning cigarette or lightening or anything else that could start a fire. Even though we do not hear about fires in Wisconsin I have seen a couple and as a child I was terrified and as an adult just very angry at whoever the careless person had been. These fires I saw would be only a tiny drop in the bucket compared to the fires in Australia that burned so huge and hot as to create their own weather systems and kill even the seeds that would make the plants and trees starting to grow in the next year or so.

Us as humans, supposedly the smartest animal on this planted, need to learn that “new, improved modern ways” are not always better especially when it to caring for and living in harmony with all living things. We need to listen to the ingenious people who have inhabited the lands we live on for the best way to keep the land and I do not mean just the piece of land your own, as Priestess Hypatia told the land is the whole country around you not just your tiny piece of it, but your state, country, and continent you live in is also something we all need to take better care of. Than maybe…hopefully we will go back to when controlled burns were done instead of uncontrollable wildfires burning, actually having a distinction between the 4 seasons, enough rain globally for crops to grow, humans, domestic and wild animals would have clean water to drink, humans in what we consider 3rd world countries could live as their ancestors did and manage the land and fresh water in such away we would not see commercials asking for donations to feed hungry children or adults. It is time we look back before the industrial revolution to see how things with the land were done not just for the betterment of Mother Earth but for the betterment of all living things that grow upon her. It is time to quit raping the land and to again start caring about it.

So, please in your daily communication with whoever the Goddess and/or God you commune with ask for enlightenment not only for others but for yourself as well to open minds globally to listen to the elders of the land on the old ways of keeping Mother Earth healthy and living in harmony with her. Thank you for doing this!

Blessed be dear ones.

 

Acts of kindness and love: Australian Pagans respond to the bushfire crisis

VICTORIA, Australia – As bushfires continue to burn out of control across several Australian states, there have been many gestures of support from Pagan organisations and individuals across the country.

At the time of writing, there are still more than eighty bushfires burning on Australia’s eastern coast, and more than thirty of those are burning out of control. Twenty-nine people are confirmed dead, along with over a billion animals. Over 25 million acres of land have been burned so far. Thousands have been evacuated from their homes, often in the dead of night. When the Victorian coastal town of Mallacoota was cut off by bushfires on all sides, the Australian Navy was called in to evacuate over 4000 people by ship.

Earthquakes, Volcanic Eruptions, Wildfires and Climate Changes

I wrote to Priestess Hypatia giving her highlights of the information being written about the unprecedented wildfires in Australia. I asked if she could let us know what is being reported there.

This is a link was her reply Sierra Club News

She has also told me in other emails while what is being reported worldwide is what that government, having his their heads in the sand for decades knowing this apocalyptic change was coming, is for the most part controlling to make themselves look good.

General Search “Natural” Catastrophes Australia 2020

While the Australian wildfires are dominating people’s thoughts worldwide let’s take a look at other places on Gaia where she is showing in spectacular ways she is not going to put up with humans ignoring her warnings that climate changes are every where. Yet humans still continue to rape her of trees, plant life, wildlife,entire ecosystems, etc on land in any kind of waterway from the smallest creeks all the way up to our oceans, and the very air our children breathe are being decimated for what for human kind to take more land to cover over with asphalt, concrete, buildings, and large ships to name a few things. Instead of having a what use to be a normal flow of water between the sky and planet through evaporation to precipitation back to evaporation as so the cycle continued being the rain to different locations as their turn came out precipitation cycle no longer has enough land to evaporate the mixture need for precipitation to do it job causing catastrophic droughts and contributing to climate changes which can bring about many different types of horrible changes not only to Gaia but every living thing on her, people starving in record numbers, years of drought sometimes followed by some much rain coming down to fast for the parched planet to make use of instead turns these places into a different type of danger zone with flooding,  landslides, crops ruined, people drowning, people having to evacuate, infecting drinking water with unusual bacteria that kill humans and wildlife.

All of this comes from the growth of “intelligence” by humans starting way back to the first time human mastered fire making up through the present with us not only living in non-harmony with Gaia but with our Universe as a whole because of all the human and space garbage circling Gaia which in turn affects how sunlight is filtered through the stratosphere and astrophere which in turn affects plant life which in turn affects the precipitation cycle. So no matter how much humankind protest that there is no change in the climate or that it is being caused by nature it boils down to the politicians and others raping Gaia on a daily bases instead of living in harmony with all living things, the land, and water that are also entitled to continue living just as humans are. Honestly if the entire planet went back to living in man-made shelters made from fallen trees, our only fuel fallen trees and dead planets, we left it to the people who know when and how to do control burns to nourish Gaia rather than devastate her, tore down most of not all building over three stories high, instead On better mass transportation outside of major cities, grew most of our own foods with remembering to rotate the crops, we’re more careful with the amount of electricity and water we use, consistently recycle everything that can be especially urging were we live to have a recycling program for businesses very slowly but in time picking up speed to start living in harmony with every living creature, plant, tree, etc out children’s children could hopefully start seeing a better world to live on, no more wars, or hunting species to extinction, ect.

Ok sorry I got kind of off-topic. There are other places with catastrophes going on that can use our prayers and positive thoughts and energy being sent to them.

Porto Rico has been trying to come back since more than one hurricanes hit the islands in 2018 have since October been ground zero for numerous earthquakes reading as high as 6.5 On the Rictor Scale.

I am sure the list of humans mistreatment of Gaia and her finally getting justices for all the wrongs done to her is longer. Please if you know of anywhere that devastation is taking place please name it in the comments section or write directly to Lady Beltane at WitchesCovenHearts@yahoo.com

What can we do to help humans, all wildlife, plants, trees, crops, etc as a community of witches and pagans? First, be very careful about what intention you have in your mind to help a country. YOu do not want your thinking to be on an intention of fire while trying to bring rain to Australia and/or North Korea nor do you want to be thinking of rain when trying to ask Gaia to stop the earthquakes in Porto Rico or the flooding etc in the Southern United States. I will not be putting up prayers or spells for you to tweak into your own words to helps these different countries. You write from the heart ask your Spirit Guides and ancestors to help you find the words you want. We are in the waning Moon cycle which can help your prayers and/or spells be more powerful. But if it feels right to you to do it in the daytime rather than at night the waning Moon is still with us and if you can do it after 1:00 PM your local time the waning Sun will add its energy to your workings as well. If you need some help with a spell and/or prayer for this as you are a newer witch or pagan just write to Lady Beltane and the Council of Elders at covenlifescoven@gmail.com Please put Catastrophe Help Needed in the emails Subject Line. Thank you.

We are collecting donations to be sent to where they are needed most. A donation can be made by using the yellow Donate button of the Homepage of CovenLife.co or WitchofTheCraft.com Lady Beltan.e and the Council of Elders will not decide where the funds go on there own. Everyone who donates $3.00 or more to this fund will have a vote on where it will go. We will pick the top 5 worse areas in need of help, Lady Beltane and if someone wants to volunteer to help her to find the most trustworthy as possible organization(s) to donate the funds to the help would be very appreciated. When making a donation there should be a place where you can write a short note put “Helping Fund” in that area and also email Lady Beltane and the Elder Council at (special email address will be added January 15, 2020, Northern Hemisphere date) put “Helping Fund” in your emails subject line, please. We will collect donations starting today through January 30, 2020. A full accounting will be given for every penny donated available upon request after February 5, 2020. Those who donate will be emailed a ballot one February 2, 2020, to vote for which organization in which country or worldwide the funds will go to. This list will include animal rescue organizations which I guarantee will not include the non-governmental Humane Society of America or ASPA.

Give Thanks to Whatever God or Goddess You ask for Australia’s Rain and to Ask for the Rain to Continue

Lady Beltane is down with a major fibromyalgia flare and there is no one available to step in to lead this gathering. I ask you all to do the spell casting part as it is a very simple ritual to do. Thank you.

The is a Nondenominational gathering no matter what type of spiritual path you follow you are welcome to join us and pray to the God or Goddess that you believe in. SO invite a few people to join us to show Australia they are not forgotten by people anywhere in the world.

Heart’s Spirit Coven Chatroom

I received this letter from my right-hand witch, Priestess Hypatia,On January 5, 2020. I felt as so many have asked for the rains to come to Australia to help put out the wildfires that this email should be shared with everyone.

“Hello dearest Lady Beltane,

THE RAINS ARRIVED!

I can not thank you enough for what you and the Coven members did.
I am so grateful it fills my heart with so much love.
We are fine here in Melbourne, its the rural areas like where my beautiful sister is. The family and many like them were taken by the Navy ships to safety untill the infirno subsided.
This was the place I always visit on a regular basis called Eden.
This is where my beautiful sister had her apothecary farm and livelihood.
The miracle is they are all fine, there home has some damage but still somewhat standing. The farm is all gone but at least they have their lives.
The locals are still on high alert and will be all summer.
Would you believe the fires stopped literaly at their door step.
I can’t visit her as the coast is still burning and very dangerous.
Australia just has to go on and find normality.
The poor wildlife that is suffering now needs to be tackled.
Please use whatever parts of the following you want to thank all the different Gods and Goddesses that answered our calls to bring rain to help put out Australia’s wildfires that have been burning since October 2019. It is summer there right now so there is a chance of the fires spreading again if they cannot get them all completely put out. So the rain will be needed for a few days to help the firefighters please continue to ask for it to be sent there. I am very thankful to everyone in their own way asked for the rain to come in before the entire continent was nothing but as.

 

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

A Beverage to be Shared with the Gods and Goddesses as an offering for their answering our plea

A Small Snack to be Shared with the Gods and Goddesses as an offering for their answering our plea

1 Tall Glass of Water

Small Outline Map of Australia

Container Big Enough to Hold Map with the Water Pour Over It

RITUAL:

Thanking the Gods and Goddesses for the Rain Falling

LADY BELTANE: I walk this circle in the direction the Sunrises three times to keep those inside the circle safe from harm and to keep the rain energy we raise contained until the circle is open and the rain energy goes to where it is needed most to help put out the wildfires in Australia

EVERYONE: Pick up your beverage and in your own words thank the God and/or Goddess you ask for the rain from, hold the cup high as you conclude you thanks take a sip from your beverage and set it back down. Type in So Mote It Be when done

Pick up your snack and in your own words thank the God and/or Goddess you ask for the rain from hold the snack up high when you conclude these thank yous. Now take a small bite and set it back down. Type in So Mote when you are done. Save the rest of your beverage and snack than go outside to make your offering to all the deities approximately half of your beverage and snack, you should drink and eat the rest outside.

Now we will do a spell/prayer asking for the rains to continue as long as needed

For More Rain

( The intent is to keep in your third eye {middle of your forehead] is to see it rain over the wildfires of Australia but causing no flooding, wash out roads, or any other damage to much rain in one location could cause)

We call upon the ancient Aboriginal God of rain and water

To help douse the wildfires and keep them from spreading any further

We ask that rain only affects the wildfires and does not cause any damage to anything on it is own

We ask that all the people, animals, birds, and reptiles not yet affected by these wildfires escape whole and unharmed

Now get as clear a picture in your mind od the rain helping to put out the wildfires. We will all meditate for 3 minutes on this picture in our minds.

After the 3 minutes or however long you want to meditate on the rain coming to all of Australia say,

Set the container is a safe place where the water will not be spilled. Add more water as needed to keep the map submerged until all the wildfires are completely out. Than turn towards the South ans say, “We send all the energy raised here tonight or morning to the rain clouds over Australia making them larger and more effective at helping to put out the wildfires.” “This is our will for Australia, So Mote It Be” or however you end your own spell work.”

I walk this circle the times in the direction of the setting Sun. The circle is open but never broken. Priestess Hypatia, all the residents, and visitors in Australia thank you for participating in casting this spell for them and all the other living things to be safe and the wildfires to stop growing.

A Little About October Birth Symbols

 

  • October Babies

    “There is no season when such pleasant and sunny spots may be lighted on, and produce so pleasant an effect on the feelings, as now in October.” —Nathaniel Hawthorne

    Zodiac: Libra until October 22 and Scorpio from October 23

    Gemstone: Tourmaline, Opal
    Tourmaline is available in many colors — and many stones are bi-color or tri-color, containing multiple hues. It is often referred to as “the gemstone of the rainbow,” and signifies love and friendship. Opal means “precious jewel.” Like the tourmaline, it’s often multi-hued, and it signifies faithfulness and confidence.

    Flowers: Marigold and Cosmo
    The marigold brings a message of undying love. The other October bloom is the cosmo, which symbolizes peace and serenity.

    Tree: Rowan, Maple, Walnut

    FROM: http://www.whattoexpect.com/pregnancy/photo-gallery/birth-signs-symbols#11

    October’s birth flower is the pumpkin bloom. Just kidding—it’s actually the marigold. Marigolds are often given as a sign of warm or fierce, undying love, or as a way of saying that you’re content with being with the recipient. The other October flower is cosmo, a symbol of order, peace, and serenity.

    October Birthstone – Opal

    The Opal is the birthstone of October. The name, “Opal”, means “to see a change in color” and might make one drift off to daydreaming and envision a rainbow following a summer rain. Ancient monarchs treasured the opal mainly for its protective powers. Thus, they were set in into their crowns and worn in necklaces. The opal dates back to prehistoric times and according to Arabic legend, fell from heaven in a flash of lightening.

    The Latin word, “opalus”, means precious jewel, and that it is. It contains up to thirty percent water and must be protected from harsh chemicals and heat. If not, they can cause the opal to dry out and may lead to a loss in its luster and cracking. It can also be broken very easily and must be guarded from any knocks or blows. The opal is made up of a non-crystallized silica, that can be found near the earth’s surface, typically in areas where geothermal springs once existed. Opal is mainly found in Australia, where ninety-five percent of the world’s black and white opals are mined. They are also found in Hungary, Brazil, Mexico, the United States and Canada.

    For centuries, before time was even recorded, the discovery of precious gems within the Earth’s crust inspired many. With each discovery, humans believed that there was a cosmic connection and energy emitted from these gemstones. As time went on, they became symbolic of certain times within the year. The calendar we are all familiar with today, the Gregorian Calendar or Western Calendar has a stone symbolic for each month of the year. For those offering these gemstones as gifts to their loved ones, they have been believed to possess magical or healing powers, or sometimes seen as a gift offering protection. Each of these precious stones are unique not only in their compositions, but their energies and strengthening powers.

    The gift of an Opal symbolizes confidence and faithfulness and can be used to ward off nightmares. They have even been ground and ingested for healing properties to treat issues relating to the eyes. It has also been gifted to those going into battle for protection and utilized to ease child birth. It symbolizes hope, loyalty, happiness, innocence and purity. It should be stated that the most common of all opals, recognized by its pearly iridescent hues of aqua and baby blues and pinks, should be given as a gift to only those born in October, otherwise they can be a token of bad luck. However, lucky for other lovers of the October birthstone opal, the opal ranges in many colors and shades from all over the world. Another form of opal known as fire opal is transparent of orange and red colors with flicks of yellow, but the most valuable are that of the black or gem opals, which showcase one or more colors against a background of black.

    Other Symbols of October:

    October Flower:

    The Candula. It is usually associated with grief, sorrow and despair.

    October Birth Trees:

    The Rowan, Maple and Walnut. The Rowan tree will guard against enchantment, and was also used in the art of metal divining. The berries of the Rowan tree feeds birds during long winters and have a pentagram shape. This shape is an ancient symbol of protection. Due to the berries shape, it is no surprise that it has also been referred to as the “Witch Tree”.
