Samhain blessings from Coven Life
This evening in the Northern Hemisphere celebrating Samhain your ritual was written by Coven Life and Witches of The Craft High Priestess Lady Beltane who will also lead it.
This morning in the Southern Hemisphere celebrating Beltane your ritual was written by High Priestess Beth of Guild of the Gods located in Lafayette, Indiana, USA. She will also be leading your ritual.
Everyone is welcomed to do both the Samhain and Beltane rituals no matter which hemisphere you live in. As the Beltane ritual uses planting of seeds for part of it those in the Northern Hemisphere might want to empower the package of seeds write down the goals and then plant them in the spring and carry on with the rest of the ritual then.
If this is the first time you will attending anything in Coven Life’s Chatroom please read our Guidelines:

No matter what sex you feel you are inside male, female, transgender, gay, lesbian, other, straight.
No matter what you look like on the outside or the color of your skin.
No matter whether you are obviously disabled or your disability cannot be easily seen by others.
No matter what path you choose as your spiritual one. There are way to many “main strean and clut religions” and “spirituality groups” to name.
As long as you are content and happy in your own skin and mind what anyone says about you to you face or behind your back please practice on not taking it personally, try not to allow yourself to become upset or angry. Instead attempt to ask the person in a kind ans calm manner why they are saying whatever about you and ask that tthe listen to yoour side of what happened.
Remember no has control over our emotions or the way we react to things except for ourself. Another person cannot make you angry but you can choose to react to whatever with anger.
Maybe some of you are asking yourself how did Lady Beltane go from talking about preconceived prejudice aimed at people different than youself to who has the ultimate control over our feelings. The answer dear brothers and sisters is prejudice and our feelings are intricately tied to gather when we say a person and/or speak to them.
Here is the actual “A Thought for Today”—-
How often do you turn your head when you are all alone in a public place because you notice someone looking at you just because they are different on the outside than you are?
Here is a little challenge for you — instead of turning away from that person say,” Hello, I’m ____. Who are you?” Than you can try to ask them to join you in a cup of coffee or tea or prehaps soda. Then if they accept be sur you don’t talk only about yourself, make sure to ask the other pers about themself. Most importantly don’t just here what they are saying instead actively listen to them. I think you will be surprised to find the two of you are not that much different.
Please let us know in a comment how the coversation went.

Many people would be shocked to learn that sometimes their entire load of curbside recycling is thrown straight into a landfill.
While recycling programs vary in different areas, most curbside programs follow a similar system; the recycling is picked up and taken to a sorting facility where materials are separated, then those materials are sold to various companies that make products out of recycled materials.
When people place non-recyclable items into their recycling bins, it keeps this system from being as efficient as it can be. Non-recyclable items can contaminate other recyclables, slow down the process and even damage machines. In order to keep the system running efficiently, sorting facilities may deem entire bins of recycling as trash if there are non-recyclables in with them.
This means that all of the plastic, glass and paper you assumed was going to be used to make recycled products is really just sitting in a landfill, releasing toxic chemicals into the ecosystem and finding its way into the digestive systems of birds and other wildlife.
In order to make it easier to avoid this, we’ve put together a list of 11 items you should never recycle.
Blessed be dear ones.
