What Are the 7 Major Chakras?

Chakras are an individual’s energy centers that are associated with physical, mental and emotional interactions. They are the openings in a person’s aura that allows life energy to flow into and out of. The function of a chakra is to vitalize the physical body and to bring about the development of self-consciousness.

Chakras have been depicted as a funnel of sorts with smaller funnels within the funnel.

The 7 major chakras are root, sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, brow and crown. Read on to learn the colors associated with each chakra and the purposes they serve.

Chakras

DESCRIPTION
There are seven major energy centers in the body known as ‘Chakras’.  Chakra is a Sanskrit word that means “wheel”.  Therefore, a chakra is like a wheel spinning vortex that whirls in a circular motion forming a vacuum in the center that draws in anything it encounters on its particular vibratory level. The body does contain hundreds of other chakras that are instrumental to the operation of our existence.

Each of the seven main chakras are connected to specific organs, glands and body systems and each chakra is connected to a color vibration frequency.  (These are outlined in more detail below). These energy centers are coded with information that can be in the form of a color vibration, ultra-violet ray, radio or micro wave, or to another person’s aura.  Our chakras radiate energy vibrations as well as receive the energy of our environment, including the people we are in contact with.  Have you ever noticed how another person’s mood effects your own?

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.

Types Of Wicca

 

 

Alexandrian Wicca

Founded in England during the 1960s, Alex Sanders referred to himself as the “King” of his Witches. The rituals are said to be modified Gardenarian.

 

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.

Pagan Portals – Fairy Witchcraft A Neopagan’s Guide to the Celtic Fairy Faith

Many neopagans today are drawn to honor the fairies but find that the modern-day path to Fairy is hidden in mist and shadow. Yet the path is still there, waiting for those who are ready to seek it out. This is a guidebook for those seeking a path that combines modern neopagan witchcraft with the older Celtic Fairy Faith. Topics include basic beliefs and practices, holidays, tools, altar set up, and theology, with the intent of giving the seeker a solid grounding in the basics of modern Fairy Witchcraft.

REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS

Can you recognize a fairy cat? Morgan Daimler has interacted with Fairies since she was a small child. She views them three-dimensionally, not as the limited New Age/media-interpreted versions that many of us are familiar with. She sees them as they are with their full range of emotions and motivations. Telling it like it is, she recounts her system of Fairy Witchcraft, based on decades of personal experience. She goes back to the roots of Celtic pagan wisdom to put it all into perspective, but it’s clear that the information she conveys is not from “book learning”. It comes from contact with the Fey Folk themselves. This very personal recollection has a special air of enchantment about it. As one reads, it becomes clear that Daimler not only has personal experience with the Wee Folk, she has been completely charmed by them. She has not, however, been deluded by “pixie-led glamour”. She just likes these…

There once was a Willow, and he was very old,

And all his leaves fell off from him, and left him in the cold;

But ere the rude winter could buffet him with snow,

There grew upon his hoary head a crop of mistletoe.

All wrinkled and furrowed was this old Willow’s skin,

His taper finger trembled, and his arms were very thin;

Two round eyes and hollow, that stared but did not see;

And sprawling feet that never walked, had this most ancient tree.

~Julianna Horatia Ewing, “The Willow Man” ”

Chants

I have been working on putting together a Chant Book.  I got the idea from a friend at a Samhain Ritual I attended a week ago.  I have been writing down the chants that I have learned including where I learned it.  For example, I learned the chant: We All Come from the Goddess/Hoof and Horn.  In my research, I found an additional verse to it!  I found a version of it on Youtube.  You can click on this link to hear it.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZmrjl5J0kE  One of the things I have been looking for is the sheet music to some of the chants so I remember the melody.  I found this site that has the sheet music to a lot of different chants.  I have been including those in my Chant book as well.  I know how to read music so that helps!  You can click on this link to check out the site with the sheet music for various chants.  http://www.firecirclechants.com/sheetmusic/
