Cherry Blossom

1 CHERRY

Ahh, the vibrant candy-pinkness of a cherry blossom! Beloved in Japan, cherry blossoms are earthly manifestations of divine love and can help align us very powerfully with God/Goddess/All That Is. As such cherry blossoms are great for clearing energy and raising vibrations. For example, you might use a small bouquet or branch to sweep your aura or to sweep the energy of a room. (Just sweep the surrounding air) You can also place a few drops of cherry blossom essence in a mister of rose water and use it as a room – or aura – clearing spray. If forgiveness (of yourself or someone else) is one of your magical goals, spending quality time with a blossoming cherry tree or taking a few drops of flower essence under the tongue can help you let go and heal. Cherry blossoms in your home or bathwater can help soothe harshness and stress and bring gentleness and softness to the spirit. This flower is also renowned as a love charm. Author Scott Cunningham says that to draw love, you might “tie a single strand of your hair to a blossoming cherry tree.” Similarly, you might hold a few cherry blossoms to your heart and affirm that you are ready to open your heart to love.

A Prayer/Meditation I Do Daily

LIns web site

Good morning Universe thank you for all my family and I have been given.

Good morning Ra, I thank you for your warmth and energy,

Good morning Mother Earth thank you for your grounding and energy.

Good morning Air, Water, Fire, Earth, the four Winds and Direction, (meaning the Cardinal Points/Watchtowers),

All our fellow living things on, above and below the waters;

On, above, and below the earth;

and in the air.

Thank you for being part of us and allowing us to be part of you.

I then go on to thank my Guardian Angels and those of my family and friends.

I thank my Spirit Guides and Ancestors for helping to guide me daily and keep me on my true life path.

There is more but it is on a more personal note so I will not share it here. I feel it is very important to thank those deities and other entities that helps us daily in our lives.  The reason I thank the God, Ra, and the Goddess, Mother Earth, but not all Gods and Goddesses I work with is to me they are my patrons for all I do. Without the help of Ra lighting the world we would always be in darkness. If not for all Mother Earth endures with us as well as other beings living on her, lets face it we would not even be here. So the next time you do you morning prayers or meditation or whatever you may call it try to remember to thank the Gods, Goddesses, Elements and other entities you work with in your magick or keep you safe from harm and/or danger. Doesn’t everybody like to here a thank you for the job they do or the help they give?

Thank you all for reading my work.

Blessed be.

Flashback 2001 Mabon Celebration

MABON

An example of a Mabon altar

“Mabon celebrates the harvesting of the fruits and berries that will sustain us through the dark winter days to come. FOr this ritual you will need five glasses of berry wine and a place outside where thee can be emptied onto the ground. This is best done at dusk or dawn when the light and dark seem to be held in perfect balance, just as they will be throughout the twenty-four hour equinox period. In a circle around you place one glass at each of the cardinal points:north(earth), east (air), south (fire) and west (water). Place the other in the center. Starting at any point in the circle, begin moving counterclockwise, pouring the wine onto the ground to pay homage to the nature spirits or elementals who stand guard over the land as it prepares for its winter nap. Lastly empty the wine in the center as an offering and libation to the Goddess, who is resting after giving birth to the harvest.”

Flashback 2001 Ostara Celebration

OSTARA

An example of an Ostara altar

“Ostara celebrate the balance of light and dark, with light emerging triumphant, initiating rebirth of the earth and all those creatures and plants who live upon her. From the ancient times through the present day, the humble egg has been the enduring symbol of this season for people in almost every culture the world over. To use them in a ritual that honors the earth as the womb of the Goddess who gives life to all things, decorate hard-boiled eggs in whatever manner you choose. ON the day of the Equinox, take the eggs outside somewhere reasonably private where you can dig into the earth. Gently tap on the earth and tell the Goddess therein that it is time to awaken. With your hands, dig small holes in the ground in which to place the eggs. These serve as an offering to the Goddess and nourishment for her after a long winter hibernation. It also symbolizes your desire to see life renewed again as summer approaches.”

Thanks to the Muse/Goddess Calliope

Calliope

Calliope’s themes are art, communication and history. Her symbols are stories, books, pens and pencils and quills. A member of the Thracian muses, Calliope is the Goddess of epic poetry and eloquence, whose symbol is that of a stylus and tablets. Greek stories claim that this Goddess is the mother of all poets and musicians. (From Journeying to The Goddess website)

I feel I want to share with all of you the how and why I can write like and what I do.

I have been blessed by having the Muse/Goddess Calliope with me. I will get some kind of
idea of a topic I would like to know more about and/or information I want to share with
others. Then anywhere within a few seconds to some times days after I start “hearing”
words on what I should write, led to where I can find the information I need to be
knowledgeable on the subject and the words just start flowing. Many a times I have really
no idea what I have typed or written long hand until I go back to proof read it. So I know
Calliope has once again used my brain and fingers to get the information from me to
whoever wants to read it.

Right now I am working on a book for novice Witches or people who maybe thinking they
want to walk the path of The Craft and The Old ways. I have been working on it very slowly
for about two years but, now thanks to Lady Abyss asking me to join the fantastic team that
makes up the WOTC site I am again working on the book at a faster pace than ever before.
I hope to have the e-book finished and self-published by the Spring Equinox 2016. Every
like, every comment and every email I receive from people on this site fuels my passion to
get this book done. The working title is “Musings of an Everyday Witch”.

Some of the topics that I am covering in the book are:

The full Wicce Rede

Basic knowledge about each Element

Importance of using Responsible Magick

A partial list of Gods and Goddesses

Pagan Calendar dates (What is celebrated on what date)

Calling the Watchtowers

Making a Simple Scared Circle

Some of the Correspondences for Color, Cardinal Directions, Days of the week, Moon phases,
Herbs, Oils, Incense, etc

Some simple beginner spells for:
House Protection
Personal protection
Healing
Money Gain
Banishing Water
Calling your Ancestors
General Cleansing of items to be used for a Magickal purpose (Altar tools, Charms,
Talisman, etc)

Some easy Meditations

An overview of each of the Sabbats

Which Moon Phase to use for best results

Basic Information about what a Familiar is

Maybe a few “craft” making ideas

Some inspirational quotes

I would love to hear from you on some topics you think a novice Witch could use to start
her path. Nothing complicated just basic, groundwork things we need to know to start our
Pagan path. I’ll also take suggestions for another name for the book, because I’m not sure
if the name I am using really describes what the book is for and about. Thank you in
advance for any help. Blessed be )0(

Flashback 2002 Ostara Celebration

Just One Type of Altar Idea

Ostara

“Ostara or SPring Equinox brings a waxing Sun. The forces of night are held at bay for the
moment, and indeed will contiune to give way to the power of the Sun. The Sun enters
Mercury on MArch 20, the day of Mercury, and in the hour of the MOon, and begins its
circumnavigation of the zodiac. The Moon is skipping ahead of the Sun at 14 degrees
Gemini, and Mercury energy dominates this day. Only easlily completed projects should be
started. Althought the Sun and Moon are fire and air this is the ferility festival and it is
symbolized by the egg.

Celebrate at sunrise, using pink, pale green, lavendar, and butter yellow at the four corners
of your altar. Decorate the altar with an egg tree, or search out a pysanki egg with
approperiate symbols and nestle it in a bird’s nest. FOllow with a breakfast brunch; serve
eggs!

Creat ritual incense for fire and air symbolism. Blend rue, fennel seed, red sandalwood, and
cinnamon; add an equal amount of frankincense and several drops of rose oil. Cover and
store for two weeks before using.”

Simple Healing Spell

Kwan Yin a.k.a Quan Yan is an oriental healing Goddess. Sirona is a Celtic healing Goddess. I wrote and have used this spell many times of the years with very good results from it. It is flexible enough for you to add whoever’s name and illness into the spell to make it personal for the person you are doing it for. It can also be used to charm a healing stone such as a Bloodstone to give to a person that needs something long-term to help their health improve.

 

Repeat spell three times always using the same wording. Where the () are is where you put in the person’s name and illness you are working the spell for. Also play around with the wording a little if you want to make the spell come more from your heart.

Kwan Yin, Sirona, Ancient powers of Air, Water, Fire and Earth;

Gather around (____) at their hearth.

Help heal the (____) that is keeping them down;

So they health returns and they feel up to moving around.

A Ribbon Attraction Spell

A Ribbon Attraction Spell

You will need a pink ribbon, a mirror, some honey, pen, paper, and a candle.


Burn some sweet smelling incense…heather or violet is perfect for this. Pass the ribbon through the smoke three times saying:

“Ribbon be thou the bearer of love. Ribbon be thou the bearer of happiness.”

Now put a dab of honey on the ribbon and then on your tongue. As you taste the honey, say:

“Honey, bring me the sweetness of love.”

Repeat three times. Now hold up the mirror and look into it. See yourself reflected there. Now say this three times:

“I am Goddess and Goddess is me. She is beautiful. So Mote It Be.”

Now dab a bit of honey on the candle and wrap the ribbon around it. Hold it between your hands as you say (again three times)

“From ribbon to candle
The magic shall go
From candle to astral
The flame makes it so.”

Remove the ribbon and light the candle. Let the candle burn down. While it is burning you will be writing what you want in a partner on a piece of paper. Be specific…say “likes kittens but hates frogs” if that is what you want. Don’t specify any person. It will backfire badly.
When you have finished your list (and you can make mistakes and scratch out or start over), fold the list three times. Tie it up with the pink ribbon. Snuff out the candle if it is still burning. Put the list between your mattress and your box springs.


Each night for the next week you must look at yourself in the mirror and repeat the mirror charm.

“I am Goddess and Goddess is me. She is beautiful. So Mote It Be.”

At the end of the week, you can stop the mirror charm or continue it. That is your choice. Your spell will bring you love within 7 weeks.
