Lady’s A Spell of the Day for 9/7: A Spell to Strengthen the Witch Within

A Spell to Strengthen the Witch Within

This is a time of the rebirth of the root cultures of many peoples.
Ancient wisdom’s that were lost or obscured by the power shifts of
history are now coming into light through many channels. Native people
are discovering their rituals, their myths, their shamans. The
advances of technology are adding to this wave of discovery in many
ways, such as through media and communication (take the Internet for
instance).

The image of the witch is at the root of our cultural past. To embrace
and affirm this aspect of ourselves is to tap the power of tradition,
longevity, and cellular memory. Once we understand ourselves, harmony
sets in.

In preparing for your spell, first do some serious thinking about just
what the image of the witch means to you. Make a list of all her
qualities, her powers, her names, how she looks, What she wears,
thinks, feels, etc. See her in your mind’s eye with as much clarity
and detail as possible.

This spell should be cast three times, at the new, full, and dark of
the month.

Ingredients:
Large piece of parchment paper
Pen
Two purple candles
Moon Oil (Recipe)
Power incense
A small moonstone

Arrange your altar. Carve moons into your candles and anoint them with
oil. Anoint yourself as well, on brow, heart, and hands. Seat yourself
comfortably and light the candles, saying:

“With this flame, I awaken the Witch within me.”

Light the incense. Close your eyes and breathe deeply for a while,
relax, and let go. Bathe yourself and your aura in white light. Keep
breathing deeply and slowly as you begin to sway and weave, letting
your body move into a circular motion. Empty yourself of all
distractions and anxieties. When you feel flowing and peaceful, let
your imagination fill up with images of your inner Witch. Take Up the
parchment and pen and make a sketch of her (don’t worry about style
Or quality; the simpler the better).

Write your impressions and ideas beneath the drawing. Set this up
between the candles so that it is facing you. Take the moonstone and
clasp it to your heart. Keep breathing and weaving as you fill
yourself with the image on the parchment.

Draw the Witch image into yourself, see her multiplied a
Thousand-fold, vibrating in every cell of your body. Repeat the
following incantation three times:

“I am willing to be different and strong
I am willing to be different and beautiful
I am willing to be different and free
I am willing to be different from patriarchy
For this difference is the same
Sameness with the Non-Linear
World of Magick, The Goddess
Her forces, My dreams
The moon, My feelings, My creativity
My passion, My deep love, Of all creation…
And the only conforming I need to do
Is Forming Creation, For I am form
And I am forming, To universal law
And therefore mu! St survive…
And even though I may at times
Feel alone and misunderstood
I will remember that I have sisters out there
Who are learning to be free, Like me
And that I am not alone, But all One
And that free women were respected
And loved, And will be again
And will be again, And will be
I will it to be, I will it to be
And so doth it be, Forever, and ever
So be it, Blessed be”

As you repeat this chant, let your words flow rhythmically as you
Weave and sway, let your voice create melody. Improvise, make new
words if you feel inspired.

When you feel complete, slip your parchment beneath the altar cloth.
Give thanks to the Goddess and God and snuff out the candles.

The moonstone is to carry at all times. Keep it in your pocket, under
your pillow, or wear it in a pouch. Whenever you feel the need, hold
the stone and rub it with your thumb in a circular motion. Think or say:

“I am safe, I am me
All is well, Blessed be”

Tell no one of this spell until it has come to fullness. Even as you
feel your powers strengthen, it may be best to maintain silence. Be
discreet about sharing your magick.

“THINK on THESE THINGS”

“THINK on THESE THINGS”
By Joyce Sequichie Hifler

Hardly any of us are without some jealousy. We like to think of ourselves above that painful emotion, because such a monstrous feeling is a destructive thing. But if we have not yet felt a normal amount of it, it is because we have yet to doubt something we love very much.

Margaret, Queen of Navarre, and sister of Francis 1, King of France in the fifteenth century, wrote the following words:

“Love may exist without jealously, although this is rare; but jealousy may exist without love, and that is common; for jealousy can feed on that which is bitter, not less than on that which is sweet, and is sustained by pride as often as by affection.”

Jealousy can rear its head when logic is giving you the facts, and throw the whole thing into chaos. But confidence is the enemy of jealousy. Confidence, trust, and faith are all strong parts of a nature where jealousy does not rule.

And jealousy, even in moderation, can introduce us to a serious problem with ourselves, if we let it grow out of proportion. It breeds rejection while maturity and understanding keep us safely within the bounds of permissiveness rather than possessiveness.

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – September 7

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – September 7

“Education is the new weapon of Indian people.”

–Eddie Box, SOUTHERN UTE

People have the ability to adapt. In these modern times we must get educated so the people don’t lose. We need lawyers, doctors, nurses, foresters, scientists, educators, carpenters, welders. These skills are needed to help the people. While we are learning, we need to remember to keep the culture, learn the dances, sing the songs, learn the language and maintain the Red Road for future generations.

Great Spirit, let my education never lack the meaning and value of spirituality.

September 7 – Daily Feast

September 7 – Daily Feast

 

Many weak excuses come to mind to give us a right to self-pity – we don’t feel well, we haven’t slept in a week, or we simply don’t know what others expect of us. All these things can be true and all have a devastating effect, but we could have said we are in the midst of a pity celebration. Mind games tell us we need an excuse to keep from being overwhelmed with obligations. We don’t need any excuse to say we are simply not up to the challenges at this time. If people want to be offended it is their privilege, but right now self honesty and rest are more important.

~ I have no father or mother; I am alone in the world. No one cares for Cochise. ~

Today’s Hexagram for Sept. 7th: 36: Darkening of the Light

36: Darkening of the Light

Hexagram 36

General Meaning: When light becomes dim, it may be wise to become invisible. The image is of fresh darkness, the period after the sun has gone down or the fire has gone out. There is still much activity left over from the light of day, while movements in the outer world become more dangerous. Even the smallest sound, the faintest glow of light, can attract unwanted attention.

When the darkness of stupidity reigns, it is best that your own brilliance stay ‘hidden under a bushel basket.’ That is, your thoughts and efforts should be quiet and self-contained, and protected, as much as possible, from disruptive influences.

Whatever you do, don’t let yourself be swept along on the current of conventional wisdom when dangerous uncertainties exist. Try not to become too depressed or anxious; this period will pass. Just endure it for now and inwardly preserve your self-confidence, while outwardly remaining cooperative and flexible. The time to assert yourself will come. Avoid looking too far ahead if you have not yet achieved your goals. That only feeds regret and longing, which can eat away at your inner resources.

Be cautious and reserved. Control yourself. Do not needlessly awaken dormant forces of opposition. During dark, unsettled periods, it is best to step gingerly around the sleeping dogs.
