A Thought for Today

Importance of Our Blood and Spiritual Families

A family can be formed in many ways. I for instance have my children, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Then I also have my spiritual brothers and sister in Coven Life’s Coven and others that live in many different states and countries.

We all have times when we get frustrated with family members but the love we hold in our heart allow us to forgive them if we think the have said or done something wrong to us. Hopefully, they can accept an apology if you think you have done or said something wrong to them. True families are always capable of giving and/or receiving forgiveness.

I have been given two fantastic reasons for my gratitude cup to over which includes the Mother Goddess answering prayers for twin totally different things. I did not have anyone in my blood family that could take the afternoon off work on the 26th when I am having knee surgery but my dearest brother, White Wolf, called me Thursday to say he would go with me. The other prayer that was answered is having all my descendants together this coming Thursday for USA’s Thankgiving Day.

Another thing the Universe did was in the form of a very unexpected phone call last week from a close cousin I hadn’t heard from in about 2 years or more after us having an argument over what I don’t remember.

I include all these things in my morning prayer and meditation asking  Hekate and her consort to please making these things happen if they were suppose to.

Please remember you are part of our Coven Life family and we are here for you no matter what you maybe going through. If you feel the need to talk to someone about anything I am only an email away. For private messages please email them to Ladybeltane@aol.com As an ordained High Priestess what we talk about stays between you and I only.

Blessed be dear brothers and sisters.

Medicine Ways: Traditional Healers and Healing (Native American)

The Medicine Wheel and the Four Directions

The Medicine Wheel, sometimes known as the Sacred Hoop, has been used by generations of various Native American tribes for health and healing. It embodies the Four Directions, as well as Father Sky, Mother Earth, and Spirit Tree—all of which symbolize dimensions of health and the cycles of life.

The Medicine Wheel can take many different forms. It can be an artwork such as artifact or painting, or it can be a physical construction on the land. Hundreds or even thousands of Medicine Wheels have been built on Native lands in North America over the last several centuries.

Movement in the Medicine Wheel and in Native American ceremonies is circular, and typically in a clockwise, or “sun-wise” direction. This helps to align with the forces of Nature, such as gravity and the rising and setting of the Sun.

A Thought for Today

Neo-Paganism can be described in many ways but for me, the easiest way to describe it is twisting The Old Ways to fit into modern society. Here is a picture I found that made some sense to me of the mixing of “New Age” thinking and Paganism. What does Neo-Paganism mean to you?

Blessed be dear ones.

Sprites, Faeries and Pixies

The BeginningThey are called the Fae, fay, faeries, sprites and pixies. Are they the same thing? Are there separate variations or species? What are they exactly? Where do they live? Who believes in them and how do they communicate with them? The best place to start this topic is with spellings and definitions. There are several spellings used throughout the world and spiritual community for faeries. Fairy and faerie are the two most common, but they can also be described as fay or fae. Pixie, leprechaun, faerie, brownie, sprite are all terms for these supernatural beings, thought to be helpful or harmful to people.

CHOOSE YOUR DEITY: THE GODS & GODDESSES OF SNOW

We had our first snowfall in the Chicagoland area of Illinois, USA. So I figured it was time to introduce a variety of SNow or Frost Goddesses and Gods. Has anyone else gotten snow yet? If you have please tell us whereby country or an area of the state you live in. Please do not put your exact town/village/city in the comment for safety reasons. Thank you! HAppy snowperson building!!! The list below is from many different countries and traditions. I will post some pictures of our snowfall here as soon as I get them from cell/mobile phone to my computer. Mother Earth looked like a beautiful wonderland to me this morning :0}

Posted by  | Aug 23, 2016 

It’s the end of August, and the gods and goddesses of snow are starting to stir in their beds. This past weekend snow was in the forecast for the higher elevations of Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado. Yes, boys and girls, it’s coming.

‘Gods and goddesses?’ you say. ‘I thought it was all about Ullr!’

Well, not really. Sure, the Nordic deity is the one who gets all the press. Even the most staunch unbelievers aren’t shy about trying all sorts of things to get him to deliver snow during ski season. But Ullr isn’t the only god of  snow out there. Plenty of other cultures have them, too. So if you want to hedge your bets, here are a few others you might want to direct your attention to:

Chione (Khione): The goddess of snow in Greek mythology. Chione was a daughter of Boreas, god of the wintry north wind. She was also the consort of Poseidon, god of the sea.

Itztlacoliuhqui, Aztec god of snow.

Itztlacoliuhqui: No, I have no idea how this is pronounced, but the Aztecs had a god of snow, who was also the god of frost, ice, cold, winter, sin, punishment and human misery. Illustrations show his face as a piece of finely curved black obsidian. Some say this reflects his blindness to the hardship inflicted on farmers by a bad, crop-destroying frost. According to legend, Itztlacoliuhqui started off life as the god Tlahuizcalpantecuhtli (Lord of the Dawn, Venus) who, after a shooting match with the Sun God Tonatiuh, was punished and transformed into Itztlacoliuhqui, the god of stone and coldness — which is why it’s always cold at dawn.

8 Tips to Build Tolerance in Your Life By Leo Carver

I had some words with someone yesterday and it got me to thinking I was not being tolerant of how the other person thought of me. I came to realize that the way others thought of me is not as important as how I think of myself. While we all come into contact with people we just for whatever reason do not get along with in any way no matter what the circumstances might be that brought us together in the first place. Even if our relationship with the person starts off in a congenial way and you might not have a clue as to why the other person suddenly attacks you verbally and/or in writing in any way they can and every chance they see. So I decided it was a good time for me to remember tolerance and maybe by sharing it with others their view may change a little about someone they have a problem with. I found the following article well written and it does have good ideas for how you not the other person treat people you come into contact with. Now I know I will not get along with everyone I meet but at least I can come away feeling better about the encounter if I practice tolerance of others.  I will take this chance to apologize to the person I had words with yesterday for being intolerant of them as a person.

Most people have trouble being tolerant with others. As a living, breathing society, everyone is constantly learning and adapting to each other—it comes with the territory. But cultivating a spirit of tolerance can bring healing and meaning to your life in unimaginable ways.

Tolerance is your ability to deal with the disagreeable. It’s your capacity to withstand the “yuck” in your life and other people. Sometimes, someone’s disagreeable nature can simply be an annoyance, while other times, it may be much more intrusive.

The practice of tolerance, however, is more about your relationship with yourself instead of with other people. Tolerance can be thought of as emotional or mental perseverance:

For Those in North America Turn Clocks Back TONIGHT

This Sunday, November 4, 2018, at 2:00 AM CT daylight savings time ends for North America. Which means turn all your clocks back 1 hour.

I do mine clocks, that don’t reset themselves, before going to sleep Saturday night. So I don’t get to an appointment or a family thing way too early. LOL, I have done this in the past.

You got it wrong again. It’s spring ahead, fall back.

A Joyous and Blessed Samhain

May your dance be one of joy with your ancestors and friends who have crossed the veil. Please kind in mind when honoring ancestors they do not necessarily have to be related by blood or family ties, an ancestor can be anyone who at some point in your life made a difference in it.

An example of a none blood/family ancestor – About a year and a half after my father crossed into the Summerlands I started taking oil painting lessons I was about 13 years old. My teacher was in her Crone years but her love and patience she embraced me with, plus her time spent teaching me, along with others in my class, instilled in me the real beauty of creating something going from my imagination out on to a canvas that I could see. Her warmth and love of art made a big difference in my life when I needed to become a child again instead of an adult taking care of my mother because her grief was almost completely oppressing her.
