Pagan Ways

 

Upon my altar a crystal ball,

An athame, candles and chalice tall,

A pagan goddess, a pagan god,

All laid upon my altar cloth,

A bell to help me celebrate,

Offerings placed upon a plate,

My pagan tools I now display,

How I love my pagan ways.

 

I’ll cast my circle upon the floor,

Then call upon the quarters four,

Earth, Fire, Water, Air,

The God and Goddess may join

me there,

I may sing, or I may dance,

I may even dare to chant,

As pagan music softly plays,

How I love my pagan ways.

 

My ritual over, now time to seek,

 

I’m feeling light upon my feet,

I’ll walk among the trees and plants,

And search for berries upon the branch,

I’ll feel the breath of natures kiss,

At one with all is total bliss,

I wish I lived in bygone days,

To learn first hand these Pagan Ways.

Third Eye Rite to Improve Psychic Powers

THIRD EYE RITE TO IMPROVE PSYCHIC POWERS

Perform this ritual to improve psychic powers three days before the moon is full, and preferably when it is in either the astrological sign of Cancer, Pisces or Scorpio.

Begin by brewing a strong magical tea made from yarrow or mugwort (herbs that
stimulate the psychic senses) and then light thirteen purple colored votive candles to help attract psychic influences.

Drink the tea and then gaze fixedly into a magic mirror, crystal ball, or crystal pyramid as you chant thrice the following incantation:

I invoke thee, O Asariel
Archangel of Neptune
And ruler of clairvoyant powers.
I ask thee now to open my third eye
And show me the hidden light
Let me see the future.
Let me see the past.
Let me perceive the divine
Kingdoms of the unknown.
Let me understand the wisdom
Of the mighty universe.
So mote it be!

After chanting, relax, breathe slowly and concentrate on opening your Third Eye. Do not permit any negative thought to contaminate your mind. The Third Eye, an invisible chakra located in the middle of the forehead above the
space between the eyebrows, is the human body’s highest source of power,
supernormal sight and clairvoyant vision.

Lady A’s Spell of the Day for Feb. 8 – Cleansing Infusion for Your Magickal Tools

Cleansing Tools

{Cleansing Infusion}

Ingredients: Mugwort

To cleanse your divination tools, and in particular your crystal ball, you can prepare a Mugwort infusion to wash your crystal ball with. To do this, gather 1 teaspoon of dried Mugwort, and 1 cup very hot water. Place the dried Mugwort into the water and let this soak for about 10 minutes. Strain the tea, and use it as a cleansing agent for your crystal ball, or other tools . Simply dab a small bit of the tea onto a piece of cloth, and rub onto the ball, wiping it off shortly afterwards. This would be ideal for metal or wooden objects, but do not use it for tarot. Use the Mugwort wash for cleansing rune stones , athames, candles, stones, jewelry, and any other durable item, including yourself. Simply pour the Mugwort infusion into your bath water for a full body spiritual cleansing.

WOTC Extra – Scrying with A Crystal Ball


Unicorn Comments & Graphics

THE CRYSTAL BALL

By far one of the most popular tools for scrying, the crystal ball has long been associated with predicting the future. Rarely is a fortuneteller , genuine or charlatan, portrayed without this magical
tool. Genuine crystal balls are made by taking the “heart” of a large natural quartz crystal and polishing it into a sphere. While their inspiring beauty and inherent conductivity is unsurpassed, these crystals can be quite expensive and difficult to obtain. Often, they are filled with numerous natural inclusions, or visible pathways of the internal crystal matrix. Some witches find that the clearer the crystal, the more useful it is for scrying. Others prefer the natural matrix of genuine quartz, as it lends itself easily to conjuring the mists. Leaded crystal is a more affordable alternative and provides an internally clearer orb. If clarity and affordability are your main requirements, you may wish to select an acrylic or Plexiglas ball. Visually, it will have much the same appearance as the leaded quartz, and though it is not made of natural material, it is very durable. Whatever type of crystal ball you choose, it is your concentration and the amount of energy that you put into it that will have the greatest impact on the success of your abilities than anything else.

1. Begin with a simple purification ritual, burning sage or incense or alternately using salt and water to banish unwanted influences.
2. Begin your meditative breathing exercises and prepare yourself for entering a trance-like state.
3. Place the crystal ball centered on your altar on a black cloth and sit comfortably before it, gazing into its center with concentrated effort. The cloth will prevent visual distractions from entering into your field of view.
4. It is so important to remain focused. Do not “zone out” and just stare at the crystal. Keep your eyes focused on the center and keep your mind attuned to the crystal. You must be an active participant in this process for it to work. You will soon know you are scrying correctly if the Goddess reveals a vision to you. Sometimes, a person will experience a glimpse of divine consciousness within the space of a few seconds. A vision or an omen may also manifest spontaneously. But often, the Goddess will not reveal an omen to someone who is not ready and prepared to receive it, just as pouring water into a covered jar will not fill the jar at all. Or alternately, a vision is granted but if the practitioner is unprepared, the meaning will be incomprehensible. The possibility of understanding the message will remain, but the result may be elusive. You already posses the innate capacity, but whether or not you can open yourself to receiving the vision depends entirely on you.
5. Hone your powers of concentration. Look deep into the center of the crystal , holding your gaze steady without allowing your eyes to lose focus or glaze over. Blink whenever necessary so that you do not strain your eyes. Try limiting the amount of time you spend on each scrying session so that you do not become immersed and lose sight of reality.
6. Use this chant , or any portion of it, to aid your focus:

Crystal river crystal moon
Blackest night and brightest moon
By my breath and by my broom
Hearken to the witch’s rune.
The mists of time may gather here
A thousand secrets to reveal
Mysteries to see and feel
Guided by the sacred wheel.
A question that I seek to know
As it is above, so be it below
Gentle as the candle’s glow
May the vision start to grow.
What was, what is, or what will be
Show me what I need to see.
By all the power of three times three
As my will, so mote it be.

7. As you gaze into the crystal, it will seem to fill with mist. The mist will swirl and fill the ball, giving it a smoky appearance. As the mists slowly dissipate, a picture will be revealed to you. The picture may be still or moving, black and white or in color. Much like a dream, the image will most likely need some kind of interpretation. It could be a vision from the distant or recent past, the present, or the future.
8. Write down the image that you see in your book of shadows, including any specific details that occur to you. These may prove to contain useful insights when you go to interpret what you have seen.

A Little Extra Magick for Your Day – A Healing Ritual With Sunlight And Moonlight

Witchy Cat Graphics & Comments
A Healing Ritual With Sunlight And Moonlight

 

This is a very magical form of healing and can be carried out either alone or as a group activity. Quartz crystal balls were traditionally used medicinally to concentrate the rays of sunlight upon a diseased or painful area of the body or in the direction of some internal organ.

This clear crystal stone has always been associated with energizing powers and with healing. In its spherical form of completeness, it is perhaps the ultimate healing and magical stone. You can buy tiny spheres quite cheaply and these work just as well as a large crystal ball.

Sunlight is good for energizing and improving physical health and vitality, encouraging re-growth and regeneration, and for matters of the mind where clarity and optimism are needed.

Moonlight is potent for removing illness or pain and for all problems concerning emotions, hormones or fertility and is especially effective in healing women, children and pets.

* Direct the sunlight or the light of the full moon into your crystal sphere, so that it shines on the person you are healing, or their photograph or other symbol. If you are using sunlight, be careful that the crystal does not become too hot and of course do not look directly at the image of the Sun.

* Stand in a circle in the open air and in the centre, place a dish of pure spring water. Use a golden coloured bowl for sunlight, and a silver bowl for moonlight.

* Into the water, drop tiny clear quartz crystals (if you are working in a group, each person adds one crystal). As you cast the crystals, make a wish for healing the sick or distressed person.

* Hold a crystal pendulum and swirl it on its chain to catch within it either rainbows or sunbeams, or the silver light of the Moon.

* Cast the beams into the water, calling:

Go forth with love and healing.

You can, if you prefer, create your own words.

* Pour the water into a clear glass bottle with a stopper and send or give it to the sick person. They may drink it or use it in a bath.

* Return the energies to the cosmos by placing yellow flowers or seeds in a pot for the golden energies if you used sunlight, and white flowers for the Moon.

The Scrying Reading

 The Scrying Reading

Pick a place and a time in which you will not be disturbed for a while. Remove anything that is distracting or disturbing. You may want to cover the table with a cloth that is pleasing but not distracting. Use common sense about music, lighting and incense. Set the tool on the table. Cast a circle of protection around you and the table. If the scrying is for another person, they may or may not be there when the circle is cast. The circle can be conjured as a circle of protection and with the stipulation that certain people will be allowed in without breaking it, or the conjuration may be done mentally. If this is the case, the circle can be done while centering and grounding.

When all is ready, unwrap or uncover the scrying instrument and place your hands over it and say: “May the Gods be present here to aid me in this reading. So mote it be.” This may be said aloud or silently within.

Look at the tool as you did in the candle exercise. Allow yourself to drift into it. Allow the darkness to surround you, to blot out the “material world”. Allow yourself to see only inside the tool, deeper and deeper inside. Keep in mind the person wanting the reading whether it is yourself or someone else. When you have gone deep inside, allow a point to move toward you and to grow. Or maybe you see a cloudy area that begins to thin out. Allow it to turn into a picture, a scene, a feeling, a smell, or whatever presents itself. Allow it to flow. You may describe aloud what you are seeing or feeling, but you must be careful to realize that you are seeing impressions and symbols that may have many meanings. This is where the control within the surrender takes place. You must differentiate between imagination, personal remembrances, unknown visions of the past, visions of the known present, visions of the unknown present, and visions of the future events.

Watch the scene unfold and describe what you see. If there is another person present, have them take notes or use a tape recorder.

When the scene has exhausted itself or when you become too tired to continue, sit back and take a deep breath. Allow the present to return. When you are comfortable, open your eyes. Place your hands again on the scrying tool and either silently or aloud, thank the Gods for their help, and speed them well on their way. Cover or wrap the tool.

Take up the circle, either physically or mentally. Mare sure to have some refreshment available.
