The White Goddess Meditation (Seed Moon)

The White Goddess Meditation

(Seed Moon)

People have a hard time forgiving their own mistakes, as well as other people’s mistakes and abuses. This meditation is a way for you to forgive yourself and other people, thus helping you to leave it in the past and start experiencing and enjoying every aspect of your life.

After getting comfortable and taking a few deep breaths, begin focusing on the problem that troubles you and that you want to forgive. For about five minutes, go over in your mind every aspect of the hurt and pain from the initial incident to everything you have felt, thought and done since that time.

Now, imagine the image of the White Goddess as She comes to stand before you. She reaches out Her and touches your spirit. You sense all that pain and hurt being released, floating off lighter than air, like bubbles steadily moving upward until they pop. The White Goddess smiles and you sense a white light that fills every cell of your being with an ecstatic, but calming joy that makes you want to laugh and smile. Take a deep breath and hold it for a moment, then release it. Smile as wide as you can and let the love of the White Goddess fill you with wonder.

As the White Goddess bids you good-bye, She tells you that you can always call on Her whenever you need to forgive something or need divine love. Take a few deep breaths and come back to your body, to the present time and place.

Three Sisters Candle Magick (Seed Moon)

Three Sisters Candle Magick

(Seed Magick)

Use this candle spell to divine your future.

You will need a blue candle, a gold candle and a white candle. A branch of pyromancy, lychnomancy uses candle flames to divine the future. The three sisters in Greek mythology had an all-seeing eye that they continually passed between them. This spell combines these concepts to give you a way of divining what’s going on in your life.

At midnight, draw a magick circle and call in the Elements. Light the candles and arrange them in a triangle. Call in the three sisters into your circle by saying:

I summon the three sisters

With their all-seeing eye

Come flicker in the flame

Come show me my future tonight!

First you need to establish a rapport with the candle flames like you would three sisters. Observe the movement of each of the flames as to whether it wavers, spirals, or burns brighter or faster than the other two. Ask a few basic questions that you know the answers to, and see how the flames respond. See how the movement seems to run among the three of them as if they’re passing the all-seeing eye back and forth between them. After you have a rapport with the candle flames, then begin asking the questions you want to know about the future, and watch the flames of the three sisters do their magick. Write down your questions and answers in your journal.

When you are done, thank the three sisters, bid farewell to the Elements, and pull up the circle.

Seed Moon Love Potion

Seed Moon Love Potion

Make and drink this potion to put more love, wisdom and passion into your love life.

You will need three cups of white grape juice, three drops of vanilla, nine ice cubes and three strawberries.

Strawberries are a favorite food of elves and because of this, Bavarian peasants tie a basket of strawberries on the horn of their cattle so that the animals may prosper with blessings of the elves. In Norse mythology, the strawberry is sacred to Frigga, wife of Odin and Goddess of Love in terms of relationships and marriage.

Mix the grape juice, vanilla, and ice together using an electric blender. Turning of the blender, add the first strawberry, and say:

Oh great Goddess Frigg

Let my beloved and I share a love that knows no bounds.

Blend the first strawberry, then turn off the blender and add the second strawberry while saying:

Oh great Goddess Frigga

Let my beloved and I share a wisdom that knows no bounds.

Blend the second strawberry, then turn off the blender and add the third strawberry while repeating:

Oh great Goddess Frigga

Let my beloved and I share a passion that knows no bounds.

Blend the third strawberry, then pour the mixture into  glass. Before drinking toast the elves:

With this fruity potion I toast the magick of the elves

And ask for their blessings so my love will always grow.

Freeing Yourself From Enchantment (Seed Moon)

Free Yourself From Enchantment

(Seed Moon)

Sometimes people come into your life who have a mesmerizing or enchanting effect on you. This spell is intended to help you move past this enchantment so that you see situations for what they are.

You will need a small piece of topaz o a piece of jewelry with a topaz in it. Derived from the Sankrit word tapas, meaning “fire,” topaz was thought by the Egyptians to have the golden glow of the mighty Sun God Ra, and for the Romans it had the fire of their Sun God Jupiter. Because of this topaz traditionally made for a very powerful amulet against harm. Magickally, topaz protects against enchantment and helps you to see things for what they are.

Begin by clearing the topaz by placing your hand over it and pulsing with your breath the image of a clear mountain stream. Lie down somewhere comfortable and place the topaz on your third eye (area between and above your eyebrows), and say:

Fire stone so bright

Shine your light

So I can see

Everything clearly

So Mote It Be! Blessed Be!

Place the topaz near your head as you sleep. When drifting to sleep, give yourself the suggestion that in your dreams all enchantment will be lifted and you see everything clearly for what it is. Write down all you recall from your dreams in your journal.

Faery Tale Magick (Seed Moon)

Faery Tale Magick

(Seed Magick)

Use this spell to encourage dreams of faery land.

You will need a white candle, a chamomile tea bag, a pinch of lavender, a teaspoon of honey, an a cup of hot water. Faeries appear after dark and they dance through the night, cloaked in the shimmering white light of the moon. The magick of faeries runs strong, providing an ideal time for making your life’s faery tale come true with the help of the faeries.

Begin by writing out your faery tale in your journal, starting with, “Once upon a time….” Write down the things that you feel would help your life turn out “happily ever after.” Light the white candle and dedicate it to magickal energy of the faeries by saying:

I light this candle to the fair people

Please come into my circle
Friendly and helpful fae
Bring your moonlight magick
Into my faery tale tonight.
 

Brew your dream tea by putting the chamomile tea bag and pinch of lavender flowers together in the cup of hot water and let them steep. Add a spoonful of honey for sweetness. As you sip the mixture, go over in your mind all of the aspects of your faery tale. Imagine taking the steps and doing the things you need to do to help make your life turn out happily. Give yourself the suggestion to dream tonight about your faery tale. After finishing your dream tea, lie down for bed and repeat the following suggestion while drifting to sleep:

Tonight, my dreams and faery tale are one and the same, and I will remember my dreams when I wake up.
 

First thing in the morning write down everything you recall from your dreams in your journal.

‘THINK on THESE THINGS’ for April 17th

‘THINK on THESE THINGS’
By Joyce Sequichie Hifler

The greatest tragedy of life is not that we quarrel with our fellows, but that we do not take time to know them.

In his great understanding of man and nature, Thoreau wrote, “Let a man take time enough for the most trivial deed.” Take time.

How often what seems to be an unfriendly atmosphere is only a lack of time. Some of our dearest friends are hidden behind the mask of hurry. And we need so desperately to know each other.

Understanding comes when people are allowed to talk to one another. They discover the ways and needs, the loves and hopes, and the despairs and fears when they take enough time to speak of them. All these things that make for understanding and compassion come from personal contact and the knowledge and practice of good will.

People become more civilized, more peaceful, more as God intended them to be when they take time to make friends out of acquaintances.

To be a good listener endears many a friendship. Everyone needs someone with whom to talk at length on all subjects without later regret. It has been written, “What a great blessing is a friend with breast so trusty that you may bury all your secrets in it.”

And how often we need to be that friend and be the listener, and to make sure we are worthy of that trust.

Listening comes in many ways. We listen with all our sense, knowing many times without having to be told what someone’s needs are. Charles Dickens said that no one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it for anyone else. And it just may be by listening that we lighten another’s load.

Sometimes we listen with our hearts and understand in silence. Sometimes we simply have to put ourselves into a situation to understand all sides of it. And we best do so by listening.

All our lives we carry secrets with us that we long to reveal to someone who understands.

There are relationships in our lives better and closer than the ordinary. Closer yet than brothers or sisters are those with whom we can share all our secrets, we think.

What a sad state of affairs when life imparts that others cannot always be trusted. What a shock to realize we have given all our hearts and bared our souls to people whose curiosity was the only motive that compelled them to listen.

Phillip Massinger, sixteenth century poet wrote, “I have played the fool, the gross fool to believe the bosom of a friend would hold a secret mine own could not contain.”

Not one of us can testify that we have nothing within our lives and thoughts that we cannot reveal. And many of us have not expressed our innermost thoughts because we have found no one in whom we can confide.

As Shakespeare said, “Many a man’s tongue shakes out its master’s undoing.” Sometimes the loquacious tell their secrets not out of a need to tell them, but out of a love of talking.

One of the greatest feelings in the world is to discover we haven’t told something we cherish very much to someone we once thought we could trust.

Elder’s Meditation of the Day April 17

Elder’s Meditation of the Day April 17

“Women know more about love than men do…Love is taking. Love is sharing. Love is learning things about each other.”

–Mary Leitka, HOH

The Elders say Mother Earth shares Her special gifts of love with the Women. The Women know about bringing forth life and nurturing their offspring. Through this gift of love the Earth really makes the Woman special. Men should look upon the Woman with a Sacred Eye. She should be respected. The Woman is a role model for love. When the Woman talks, we should listen; when she shares, we should be grateful. We should all learn about each other.

Grandmother, teach me to love with the power of the Woman.

April 17 – Daily Feast

April 17 – Daily Feast

We want to do the right thing, say the right thing, be the right person. We try to be in tune with life, to find harmony within to blend with all that surrounds us. It just seems that so much has been borrowed from us – time, concern, spirit – until we cry for restoration. Like children, we want to ask, “Are we happy yet?” Is there a time of rhythm and order and an even beat, so that we may walk without running, laugh without tears, care without fear of giving too much? Yes, beyond the slightest doubt we can renew and we can overcome the feeling of being totally taxed to despair. Speak to yourself, said the little Cherokee grandmother. Tell yourself you are u wo du hi, fine looking, and your surroundings will see it and want you to be happy. In other words, change your attitude and the world will respond.

~ Why do you take by force what you could obtain by love? ~
