Prayer/Spell for PUT for better AH

You can use this two ways, one as a prayer or two as a spell to empower a black stone. I say it in my prayers every morning and also carry a stone with me anytime I know I will be in a situation that maybe stressful and/or people I will be encountering might have negative feelings or thoughts about me and/or speak nastily to or about me. In other words I carry it almost daily as I never know who or what I might encounter outside my home.

For a spell you will need:

Pocket size Black Stone (Black will draw negativity to itself before it can reach you. Cleanse the stone at least once a week using same spell you use to cleanse it the first time.)

To perform the spell:

First cleanse stone (see – How to Cleanse Objects Using the Elements)

Either in a sacred space or circle say the spell over the stone three times while either holding it in your power hand or touching it with your wand. At the end of the thrid time seal the spell with the words “So mote it be” or whatever words you use to seal your spells.

Prayer/Spell

 (For prayer start with the words “Today I ask for help with…”) (For spell start with the words “I empower this stone stone with…”)

Patience, Understanding and Tolerance for better;

Acceptance of people. places. situations, attitudes, how people speak to and about me;

that I might live in better Harmony within myself, home, family, work and world.

A Spell to use in a Dedication to The Craft Ritual

22daf5753f1715216ada280175f6506f

I think this is one of the more beautifully worded dedication to The Craft spells I have ever read. Even though it says it is for s Solitary Witch it could be used in a coven setting also.

Some Changes in Directions in Posts on Coven Life

Merry meet brothers and sisters. Since I no longer classify myself as pure Wiccan and as my pagan spiritual path encompasses other traditions as well, I feel it is time I step away from only posting things based upon Wiccan tradition. The reason for this is so I and my site can introduce other types of pagan spirituality both from modern and ancient times to those who take lessons from me will have a broader range of what pagans and witches can believe in. Also for anyone interested in learning more about different pagan spiritual paths.

A pagan spiritual path is also referred to as ‘ The Old Ways” The definition of Pagan is:

noun
1.

(no longer in technical use) one of a people or community observing a polytheistic religion, as the ancient Romans and Greeks.
2.

a member of a religious, spiritual, or cultural community based on the worship of nature or the earth; a neopagan.
3.

Disparaging and Offensive.

  1. (in historical contexts) a person who is not a Christian, Jew, or Muslim; a heathen.
  2. an irreligious or hedonistic person.
  3. an uncivilized or unenlightened person.
adjective
4.

of, relating to, or characteristic of pagans.
5.

Disparaging and Offensive.

  1. relating to the worship or worshipers of any religion that is neither Christian, Jewish, nor Muslim.
  2. irreligious or hedonistic.
  3. (of a person) uncivilized or unenlightened.

This came from http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/pagan If you want to know the origins or other information on the word just click on the link. You may find other definitions for the word pagan in different dictionaries, but this is the definition that I have been taught.

If there is an area of interest that I don’t post on and you would like me to please let me know and I will see what I can do. I won’t be posting daily horoscopes, runes, tarot cards or the other types of daily posts as seen on Witches of The Craft as Lady of the Abyss and her staff do a fantastic job covering those areas.

Information Coven Life Website, Novice Witch Mentoring & Litha Online Coven Gathering

Coven Life website has a new web address, covenlife.co  Lady Beltane is still accepting people who want to become students/novice witches and  learn about The Craft. I am also continuing lessons with novice witches I already have. There is also a new chat room link going to a different chat room then where we had been meeting. To find out more about this click on the link in either the banner for Class Meetings or Coven Gatherings.

The coven gathering for Litha is cancels because I did not have enough time to prepare a ritual for it and ask people to help by doing parts of it. The reason I didn’t have the time was because of my mother being hospitalized and having major surgery besides working and other family commitments. We will be gathering for Lammas. More information on that will be available closer to the holiday. The gathering will start at 6:00 PM CT in the new Coven Life chat room.

Any questions about the Coven Life website, studying with Lady Beltane or the online coven gatherings should be sent to ladybeltane@aol.com

Flashback Winter Solstice/Yule 2001

Winter 3

An example of a Yule/Winter Solstice altar.

]Yule marks the beginning of a new solar year. Honor the newly born Sun God by festively decorating your home, lavishing everything with light, and staying up late into the night playing “midwife” to the Sun’s mother, our Goddess. As with any form of creation birth is not a quick process, so plan to make this ritual last over the next thirty-six hours or so. In frequent meditation, project loving energy to her has she struggles to give birth. As the dawn approaches, welcome the newborn God of the waxing year with acorns, the symbol of the oak tree, which is representative of hi next half-year’s reign. Make breakfast featuring other nut products: bread, cakes, and butters are all easy to find or make. The following evening, offer a prayer of thanks to your deities as Yule Day closes and you note that the Sun has set just a bit later in the evening than the night before.

Flashback Summer Solstice/Litha 2001

Summer 5

An example of a Litha/Summer Solstice altar.

Litha is the Midsummer celebration of the Sun at its zenith. It is a time when heat light, and the Sun – God himself are at their strongest. After this brief moment in time, their strength will start to diminish as the year wanes gradually to darkness. For this ritual you will need a small amount of dries herbs, a fire – and – heat proof container in which to burn them, and some matches. Use caution, so that you don’t start a fire outdoors or set off your smoke detector indoors. Choose herbs that share an affinity with the SUn and fire such as bay leaves, sunflowers, basil, frankincense or any mint plant. Verbally pay homage to the Sun – God, then light the herbs. They will burn fast and hot 0 and may not smell wonderful! Revel in the heat and light pouring from the container and feel the way it symbolizes the quick apex and decent of the Sun on Litha.

Cold Avocado Soup

The heart of the summer is a rich, beautiful time where fruit first starts to bear. Avocado, considered both fruit and nut – thus signifying the combined presence of God and Goddess – is a rich way to celebrate the beginning of the abundant season.

1 skinned and pitted avocado

1 Tablespoon lime juice

1 pinch salt

1 clove garlic

1 cup yogurt

Salsa (optional)

Cheese (optional)

Sour cream (optional)

Combine avocado, lime juice, salt, garlic, and yogurt in food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. Pour out into bowls. Garnish, if desired, with salsa, cheese, or sour cream. Serve immediately. This dish, paired with tomatoes, peppers, early summer fruit, lemonade or iced tea, and chips, is an excellent alternative to barbecued meats usually served around a Litha fire.

Flashback Summer Solstice/Litha 2003

SUMMER 1

An example of a Litha/Summer Solstice altar.

This is the shortest night of the year, and the longest day. My coven likes to celebrate many of the holidays with songs. Just as we sing the Sun up on the morning of Winter Solstice, we like to sing the Sun down on the evening of the Summer Solstice. We usually use summer songs and lullabies. To sing the song, ,y coven goes to the top of a high hill in the middle of the city so we can watch the Sun go down, but any place that has a clear view of the horizon is good.

If you have friends and family to share this ritual with, you might want to go to the spot you have chosen about an hour before sunset and have a picnic. If you wish, cast a walking circle. Rather than casting a small circle, as you would indoors, go to the place where you can walk in a large area, always going deosil – clockwise. How large a circle you walk will depend on the terrain and your stamina. Start at the east, walk to the south, west, and north, and then go back to the east. Last walk to the center of your circle. If you are very ambitious you can walk three circuits, spiraling inward to reach the center. The face west, and sing the Sun down.
