I Will Admit, Our Schedule Is Going To Be A Little Strange Today Because of Me……

Full moon
To tell you the truth, we don’t know what we are doing today, lol! I know it ain’t funny. I don’t understand why that man on TV got under my skin so. Well, I take that back I do too. It was his fault, he started talking about blessings, anointments and a few other things that sounded like Paganism to me. Then that through me back into our past on how much had been stolen from us, I got angry. They still try to steal from us today. Every time an Equinox comes around the date has been changed or a Sabbat. What gives them the right to change something they know nothing about?

So yes, I got angry and I put that anger to good use, we did a morning Banishing ritual with fire. We went outside in the back yard and built a huge fire. We did a ceremony and each of us had an item or items that we wanted banished from our lives or no longer served us. I had several and I believe I took the longest. I can imagine the others were thinking, “is this woman ever going to finish, Good Grief!” But that is why we are running late, we did the morning banishing ritual at the crack of dawn. No wonder our neighbors don’t mess with us, lol! Way I like it too!

It just dawned on me, there is a lesson in this for all of us. I am occasionally talking about taking your emotions and turning them or directing them toward your spell. Well, I took my anger and directed it toward the banishing spell and immediately I could feel my heart and soul lighten. Just like a gush came over me, it was a relief and I feel 100% better. I not only banished the items that no longer served me but I also banished the ill will I was carrying around with me and didn’t even realize it.

It doesn’t have to be anger, it can be passion or desire, or any other emotion you have bottled up. Tonight, take that bottled up emotion and use it in your spells. Direct that energy toward your spell work. Don’t stop the energy coming from you, let it flow. Let if flow till it is totally consecrated in your spell. You will know when you are free of that emotion or energy, you will feel relaxed and at peace. But before you get to feeling to relaxed, remember your spell now has a lot of energy built up in it, release it to the winds and then relax and ground. You will feel so much better, I promise you. You would not believe how relaxed I am right now.

One more thing then I will shut up, I promise, lol! Since tonight is a special Full Moon, some of us are going to do a renewal of our self dedication to the Craft. Even as long as I have been in the Craft and a Witch, I still do renew my commitment to the Craft and the Goddess. So tonight would be a perfect and beautiful night to do that, if you have time. Also don’t forget to do your house blessings, clear out any excessive magickal residue that might be hanging around. You know that stuff does build up. Then go outside and go around your house with your salt. Don’t discard the salt to the wind. Old hillbilly belief and it works…..take the rest of your salt and go in your home. At each corner of your home, take a small dab of salt and lay it in that corner. When you do ask that your home be blessed with prosperity (this is done in the East corner of your home). Now move to the next room which has an outer corner facing South. Take a dab of the salt and place in it a neat pile and ask that your home be protected from all harm. Next move to the room which has an outer corner facing West. Put a dab of salt there and ask that your home be blessed with happiness. Finally, go the the room that has  a corner facing the North. Repeat the process of making your salt hill and ask that your home be filled with love. Give it about two to three weeks and I guarantee you, you will see a difference. Oh, by the way, I am horrible on directions. My house is built strange. All I know is I go to the East corner, start there and work my way around clockwise. You also don’t have to ask for what I suggested. If you need anything else besides prosperity, love, happiness and whatever the other one was, then feel free to substitute.

Ok, I am shutting up for now, believe it or now.

Love ya,

Lady A

What A Beautiful & Glorious Day The Goddess Has Granted Us! Happy Super Full Moon Sunday To All Our Brothers & Sisters of The Craft!

full moon challenge !!!!!
(You have a televangelist to blame for getting me on my soapbox this morning, Sorry!) 

 

Good Sunday Morning my dear brothers & sisters of the Craft! Oh, and I should say, “Happy Super Full Moon to you” also. I am going to ask you a crazy question and I know the answer before I ever ask it but……have you ever by chance listen to one of the Sunday morning preacher on TV. I occasionally do because they come on right after “Meet The Press” and I am too lazy to change the channel really.

Nothing new, the same old stuff I had heard all my life. I know most of you know I grew up in a half and half house. Half Witch and Half Baptist. I remember the sermons and the preacher when I was growing up. Now I listen to the preachers occasionally on Sundays like I said and nothing has changed, except me.

When I was given the opportunity to chose which path I would follow and committed my life to the Goddess, listening to those preachers use to make me so angry. By that time, I had been taught our full history. I realized how much had been stolen from us. I also realize how complicated they made finding the Divine sound. Now as I have gotten older, I am seriously beginning to wonder if the Burning Times didn’t occur just because of a greedy church but because they wanted to silence us also. At that time we were a very strong religion and for a new church starting out, we posed a great threat to them. So perhaps it was both, the new church grabbed our lands, our money, anything of value and silenced us at the same time. Very convenient, wouldn’t you say?

Today, it is a different story, thank the Goddess for that and our ancestors. We are once again growing strong and getting stronger every day. I look for a time to come again when they will try to silence us. But this time it won’t happen, we have the truth and we have the Goddess on our side. Our truth is simple, you don’t have to hunt for the Divine all you have to do is look inside yourself. Look and listen and you will find the Divine waiting for you to answer Her call. She has always been there and She is in all of us. Whether you be Witch, Wiccan, Druid, Baptist, Catholic or any other Faith, the Divine is in all of us. And why wouldn’t the Divine be in us? Our history does state that we were created by the Divine. We don’t have to look or search, we are truly blessed. We know where our Divine Being is, we know the promises that She has given us and we know that She keeps her promises to us. We know we don’t die, but we live again and again. She teaches us, she loves us and she cares for us.

We have proof of the Divine by just simply looking out the window or going outside. You see Her every where you look. She is part of the ground you walk on, She is in the clear blue sky, She is in the wind that blows. We see things and witness things that others would call miracles. We call them magick and the Divine at work in us. She has given us the power and freewill to determine our own fate. We don’t need a book to tell us what we should believe and what we shouldn’t. The Divine is in our hearts and we know She is there. We can feel Her love, we can feel Her comfort and we can feel Her coursing through our very veins and existence. The beauty we see, everything we experience is gifts from Her.

For those who have walked the Path for years and years, we know the Goddesses and Gods exist. We have seen them, we have witnessed what they can do when asked. We know our religion is alive and well because we see proof of it every day.

For those I see on TV, I feel pity for. They will never know the greatest power in the entire universe, our Goddess. We don’t need a book to sing Her praises, we do that on our own. Because of the love we feel and know from Her. We don’t need a man telling us how to worship, She has showed us how and continues to this day to guide our footsteps.. We don’t have to search for Her or look any further than our own being to find the Divine. The Divine lives in each of our hearts. All we have to do is listen and answering her calling.

What a wonderful world we would live in, if only the rest believed as we do. We have work to do, brothers and sisters of the Craft. We have to make this world a better place for our children and their children. We need to start before it is too late, we need to spread the truth about the Ways of the Old. That our religion is not dead but steadily growing day by day.

One day, maybe not in my lifetime, but in my children’s lifetime, Witchcraft will be back in the mainstream religions. What a beautiful day that will be and what a glorious place our world will once again have become. The world needs hope, let us be the ones to give them that hope.

In The Service Of Our Goddess,

Lady of the Abyss
