The Night Sky Will Never Be the Same

Not only have we raped, pillaged and disrespected Mother Earth for centuries upon centuries, in the last approximately 8 decades human kind found a way to make the outer atmosphere and Our Lady of The Moon’s surface a garbage can. Now a company wants to put about 200 more man-made satellites encompassing Mother Earth from space.

I may not have an advanced degree in science but I do have common sense. In my opinion “Global Warming” may not be as bad as it is if it was not for the fact that our Lord Sun God and Lady Moon Goddess cannot work in harmony and in tandem with Mother Earth as well as with each other with the garbage many countries and a few private citizens have left just floating around until they lose momentum and than fall somewhere on Mother Earth when they piece of trash can no longer maintain its orbit around her.

So I plan to write to the company mention in the link below to ask what impact blocking more of the Sun Gods rays from making it into our atmosphere. How is he suppose to help nurture all living things on Mother Earth? How is our Lady Moon Goddess suppose to work correctly to bring the tides in and out among other things?

Mother Earth, the Sun God, and Moon Goddess love all living things and creatures living on her with unconditional love providing many things we as humans, flora, fauna, animals that walk or slither or fly or swim need to continue living. How soon will more species go extinct because of the way humans treat a planet we should protect and live in harmony with? Actually if I was Mother Earth, the Sun God, and Moon Goddess I would have wiped out all humans as soon as they quit living in harmony with the energy flows of Mother Earth, chalk it up to a very bad experiment and start the human race again from caves with little nudges to love the land as unconditionally as it loves us. I would hope the Gods and Goddesses the second or third time around, as we can gather from written history of the times humans were almost completely wipe off the whole of Mother Earth, to develop advance space travel without leaving waste and many other things such as never allowing a fossil fueled automobile to be invents but only an electrical ones, to use natural ways to heat our homes or cool them off, mainly to rebuild civilization that is hand in hand with keeping Mother Earth as clean and pollution free as possible.

Please do not take what I am saying here as I would not miss some of the modern conveniences that we have I am not ready to go live “off the grid” somewhere but I just wish we would fine alternative ways for them to run. Although in some ways I do like the thought of being some of the first people to populate our home planet that still to this day try their very best to live in harmony with all living things we share the wonderful planet with. I am looking forward to when my husband retires in a few years of moving to a place where we can live in closer harmony with the land and all living things.

A Different Style for Writing a Short, Simple Spell

Let’s try something interesting and useful as a new way to write a short spell.

I have been watching a YouTube family channel designed with the idea for families have fun and maybe try some things they do. Caution they may get loud at times but I have gotten at least a chuckle on the over 30 videos I have watched so far.

Good Mythical Morning

The hosts Rhett and Link do some strange things. But one thing they do sometimes is talk in a Japanese from of poetry known as Haiku. Which can be explained easily with this

A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.

An explanation of Haiku by Poets.org

As I read about Haiku I realized while it may take some getting use to writing nd reading it, it could be a different way to write a short, simple for something easy. For example (this is my first try in trying to do this so if it sounds strange it gives me room to improve and to find knowledge)

“I want Mother Earth,

To be clean and renewed So

 Tell me pick up trash.” 

Ok, I guess most people would not really a spell in the sense that we are use to writing them in. But to finish it I would write it on a small 1 inch by 3 inch piece of paper then the roughly burn the piece of paper. Once the ash is COMPLETELY COLD I would grinded it into a fine dust to mix into a small amount of lotion, about 1 tablespoon (if you lotion tends to go a long way when you use it regularly a just the amount you would use for this so you can rub in the lotion completely or than rub a tip of your index finger amount throughly into my crown chakra to remind me to pick up the trash and on my 3rd eye area so I would not over look the trash. Than rub the rest into my hands to remember to grab the trash. I would do this just before bedtime and let the lotion with the spell paper dust in it soak into my skin to set the spell. If you can wear a long weight pair of pure cotton gloves which will help the lotion moisture your hands more.

Here is my first attempt using a Japanese Haiku Poem to do a Spell. I will let you know how it goes.

I am really looking forward to reading your Haiku spell and how you are going to put it into action.

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.

 

Tips to Help to Not Have a Bad Day

To every man and brother whose 2 and/or 4 legged, reptile or bird children I am very sorry to not have wished you  blessed and happy Father’s Day!

My whole weekly schedule got thrown off by two things, a very bad allergy day Friday and my husband working Saturday. Since he’s normally off the whole weekend I kept thinking yesterday was Saturday and woke thinking today is Sunday. So I was trying to figure out why he was up getting ready for work until the light bulb went off that it’s Monday.

As I sit here while it is still dark outside and listen to the wonderful bird songs in my backyard and neighborhood I am again in awe of Mother Earth and the beauty she provides all of our 5 regular senses if we would take the time to see, hear, smell, touch, and taste all the things she along with Air, Water, Fire, and Earth provide daily for us.

Today I challenge you to take just 5 minutes out of your busy schedule to really listen to the natural sounds around you, see the beauty in the face of someone you come in contact with or flowers or the grass, or the trees or all of these, to give a person, familiar/pet a 20 second hug this will release feel good endorphins in your brain, to really enjoy the smell of nature or something delicious that is cooking, to take the time to savor the intricate flavors of whatever you eat and drink through out the day instead of just eating or drinking whatever because you need it to live. There is an old saying from the late 1960’s here, “Stop and smell the roses.” This is what I am asking you to do with your 5 physical senses.

Now for the 6th sense which to me is our Spiritual or metaphysical being.  Take some time to meditate concentrating on opening your 3rd eye and reconnection your spirit and body into one being.

I strongly suggest doing the above challenge as often as you can but at least once a week. I can tell you from experience you will become closer to the Great Mother and Father a.k.a. the Goddess and her Consort God a.k.a. the Lord and Lady.

Please share with us how the day goes on the day you decided to take up my challenge.

Sisters and Brothers may your day be filled with wonderess new experiences that you encounter.

Week 15 – Goddess Knowledge Card – Themis

Themis is one of the oldest and most revered of the Greek goddesses. The daughter of Gaia, the earth goddess, Themis is the mother of the three Fates, who determine the destiny of all mortals and gods. Shown here as the giver of dreams, she once was consulted at Delphi as the bestowed of Oracle’s. Themis is prophecy incarnate: her Oracle’s derive from hervehicle sense of order and connection to nature. In later Greek mythology, transferred to Mount Olympus, she personified the social order of law and custom, a reminder that social order is ultimately dependent on the natural order of the earth. Themis is a grounded, earthly goddess who is also comfortable moving through the shifting, romantic world of dreams. She is deep wisdom familiar with both the depths of earth and the heights of sky: a guide into soul.

I picked the keywords Greek Goddess Themis Facts, there are other keys words you could use such as story or history or of justice or power.

Week 3 – More Information on and Images of Gaia

This is a link for a general search for the Goddess Gaia, there are a few different spellings of her name as there are with all Gods and Goddesses.

Gaia Information

Gaia’s image has been depicted in many ways through different cultures so explorer the images until one jumps out at you like your idea of what she may look like.

Gaia Images

When I am asked what kind of Witch I am, first let me say I really do not like to label anyone as one type of Witch or another because to me that is narrow-minded thinking, but my answer is, “I’m an Earth Witch.” Because I work a lot with Gaia in her form as Mother Earth and the Triple Goddess. I can feel her wax and wane during the seasons of the year and my spirit, mind, and body flow along with her. I suppose in Neo-Pagan terms, I am an Eclectic Witch.

I also work with the Moon Goddess Luna or The Triple Goddess depending on what I am doing and when. I just never think or picture Luna as a Crone. The reason I work with her is she and Gaia work in a beautiful dance of harmony to help all living beings on this planet to live.

As for Gods, my main go to for many things is Ra especially if I am doing a spell and/or ritual during the day. He also works in harmony with Luna and Gaia to keep the planet we live on not to hot or cold and offers us his light. His light and warmth are very important during the growing seasons to help ensure a bountiful harvest. Whichever name for the Sun God you prefer is fine.

From Gaia, Ra, and Luna the elements of Air, Water, Fire, Earth, and Spirit are possible.

The above mentioned Gods and Goddesses are who I prefer to work with. Each person needs to find the deity or deities they find it easiest to work with most of the time. There are times to branch out to different ones that may help with a specific spell and/or ritual. Example when I doing healing work I call upon Kwan Yin (oriental Goddess) and Sirona (Celtic Goddess) to work through me to help whoever I am sending healing to.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Week 3 – Goddess Knowledge – Gaia

This week we are going to find out more about the Goddess Gaia. Which is also another name given to Mother Earth by Neo-Pagans. 

GAIA

Gaia existed before everything; she existed before time. Gaia, the eternal, prehistoric earth mother goddess,, is fertility incarnate, moist, mysterious, strong. She is life energy itself; everything that lives, breathing or not, overflows with her life. She is the earth and all powers of the earth. Gaia is not always a consoling goddess: standing for life and generation without thought of consequence, she has energy and a power that must be approached carefully. All bodies eventually return to her, into the black, fertile earth, to be devoured and to receive her life to live again. As goddess of the soul, Gaia reminds us that the soul develops in dark places and that ultimately soul must be rooted in the body, in earth. She is a reminder that we must ground ourselves into the reality of nature and incorporate all sides of ourselves, be the pleasant or unpleasant, light or dark.

A Thought for Today

Image result for pagan fairies

Fairies like all “mythical” creatures found a home on or in Mother Earth before us as humans spread across her vast wilderness. We invaded their homes, sacred forests. caves. mountains, and waterways to spread what we now call for civilization and chased them out. When you think about it we as humans have been encroaching on there right to live the life the built for themselves for centuries. We have polluted the land and waterways. We have caused many species of animals and being to go extinct or close to becoming extinct. We have cut down trees for homes and warmth not caring if it was someone or some creatures home. We have take noisy boats that spew pollutant into the waterways for our enjoyment. Hunted not to use the game as it should be for food, clothing, candling making but just to say we killed whatever creature it was. (I am a hunter but was taught by my father as a child to use every bit of my kill for some purpose. An example is putting the entrails and deer antlers back into the forest for other animals to feed upon when the weather makes finding food to nourish themselves. We made dipped candles out of the deer fat/talon and slippers out of the hides.) By the way, fish heads and bones make an excellent addition to a compost heap or just buried right into your gardens – vegetable or flowers.

We as witches and/or pagans are the keepers of Mother Earth. It is up to us to set the example to others to live as “green” as we can. Recycle whatever you can. Reuse for the same or another purpose anything you can. y husband and I have 1 – 33-gallon bag of garbage that needs to be taken to a landfill every other week, while our large recycle can on wheels go out weekly. I am not trying to brag I am just asking you to think before you throw something in the garbage if it could be recycled or reused instead. I love used glassed jars after they are washed and rinsed and very thoroughly to keep dried herbs and other “witchy” things in. It saves me money by not buying jars, makes it easy to see what is inside of them, and I label them with a piece of masking tape with one end slightly folded under for ease of removal when the jar is empty and can be used for something else.

Blessed be keepers of Mother Earth

Putting Garden to Sleep Blessing

As the plants wither and die the give back nourishment to Mother Earth. As the leaves fall from the trees to help insulate the plants that will bud again in spring.
I wish Mother Earth a pleasant slumber under a Prue white blanket of snow.
To reguvenate and wake refreshed when spring time comes again.
I thank Ra and Father Sky for the warmth and rain that helps the plants and trees to grow.
May they find time to rest as the days grow shorter and the night longer.
I thank the elements Air, Fire, Water and Earth for their willingness to help the plants and trees reach maturity and to spread there seeds far and wide.
I ask the Universe to watch over us all; plants, trees, animals and humans throughout the cold days and nights to come.
So mote it be. A’Ho

We as Pagans and Witches need to walk with our Native American brothers and sisters in trying to preserve and healing Mother Earth and all living thing on her.

We use the elements in rituals and for spellwork these too are part of nature and should always be thanked for their help in whatever we use them for. Along with herbs, flowers, bird feathers etc.

When out walking take a small trash bag with you and pick up the trash others are to laxy to dispose of properly. You maybe saving a bird or small animals live by doing this.

Blessed be.
