Imbolc/Candlemas Comments

To all our friends downunder….

Wishing You & Yours A Very Beautiful & Blessed Imbolc!

 

I know I am probably a day late on wishing everyone down under “A Very Happy & Blessed Imbolc!” If I am not a day late, then I am probably posting this and they will see it early Thursday morning down there. My life’s story a day late, a dollar short!

 

So how have all of you been doing? I hope super!!! I know I am having my first taste of freedom in several, several months but tired out also. I didn’t realize we had that much stuff to move. Someone told me, “we had lost everything in the fire.” Come to find out there was somethings that were salvageable and in a storage unit. Not only did we have to move the boys and my stuff out of the rental house, we also had to empty a storage unit. We had plenty of help, everyone from the office chipped in and helped. I guess we were probably moved in, not out of boxes though, in about three days. The first day, the boys and I put up our beds and packed everything we needed to spend the night. Somebody went off and forgot the TV (Jacob), which turned out not to be such a big deal after all. We ended up walking to the pond and just sitting there till the night sky came out. Then we laid back and talked about Mystie and all the memories we had at our home. The mosquitos got bad so we had to pack up and come back to the house. Darn, I guess because no one has been here the mosquitos were hungry and tried to carry us off. But Lord M put the guys to work on the yard and got rid of all the weeds, mowed the lawn and trimmed what hedges were left. It was dangerous when they mowed the lawn because of the nails and screws that had been dropped. You would hear something fly by you and it would be a nail picked up by the lawnmower. When we mow, we now need a suit of armor to do so.

 

We are glad to be home to say the least. We are still unpacking boxes but I told the boys, “hey, we have the rest of our lives to unpack those boxes, who cares?” I am just so delighted to be home. You don’t realize how much something means to you or you miss something to it is gone. I love this place to pieces. Lord M hired the contractors and gave them a general idea of what the place looked like before. He added a little extra touch.  Remember, the place isn’t finished yet but almost. All they like to do is finish the porch which is going to surround the cabin and have landscape lights under it. The idea is for the place to look like it is floating at night. I wasn’t suppose to know about it till the cabin was finished. It was Lord M’s surprise to me and I wasn’t suppose to know anything about it till the cabin was finished. Lord M saw that Eleanor and I were getting on each other’s nerves. He knew if we stayed around each other much longer we would be casting spells against each other. So he told me the inside was complete and was liveable if we wanted to move back home. You can imagine my answer, “HELL YES!” Back to the story (see I never change, too easy to get side tracked), the contractors finished the front of the cabin. Lord M made me close my eyes and drug me outside the first night and showed me my surprise. I was stunned, breathless and couldn’t believe it, it is absolutely beautiful. I cried, the boys cried, Lord M cried, some of the contractors that were still working shed a tear and we all did a group hug. When I find my camera, keyword “when” I will take some pics and post them for you all to see.

 

I have to say the last few months have been hell but coming home and seeing the cabin made it all worth it. I have so much to tell you but I don’t want to bore you to tears. I do want to thank you for everything you have done for me in the past few months. Your donations, your energy, your prayers, your thoughts, have meant the world to me and the boys. You have given me to the courage to survive it all and come out better for it. I have been humbled, I have had operation after operation, I have even had a heart attack and through it all I survived. I have learned and learned a lot in the past few months, be very grateful for what you have because you never know when you will be knocked flat on your face. Even though I might not have been here, I could feel your love and prayers and you helped me to survive it all, for that my dear, precious family, I thank you!

 

Now I am going to catch a few winks, we are going to have a little Pre-Lammas celebration tonight and then a big one tomorrow night. Hey, we just like to party. Tomorrow night, since it is Lammas, we figured it would be a great time to do a house blessing and have a house warming. Eleanor and I will be doing the house blessing together. Oh, yes, she is still here. We might fight like cats and dogs but we love each other. We have just put money on how long Lynette and Eleanor will live together. Lynette has finally made up her mind, she is staying also. They tell me, I need someone to look out for my rump, HA!

 

Anyway, my luvs, we will see you tomorrow……

Till then,

Oh, how I love you and I am so glad to be back,

Lady of the Abyss

Simple way to Completely Smudge Your Home and Yourself

Coven Life®

Smudging is usually done with White Sage and Sweetgrass combination this way is more of a NAtive American tradition. You can use White Sage by itself which is more of a witch’s way of doing it The White Sage takes all the negative energy out of your home and yourself and the Sweet Grass bring positive energy back into your home. If you do not use the Sweetgrass that is fine but be sure to ask for love, harmony, and positive energy to fill each room after you have cleared the negative energy from it.

To smudge yourself either start at your feet or head, depending on what feels right to you, WHile bring the smudge stick up or down your body ask Hekate to cleanse you of all negative energy, anger, resentment, and whatever else negative you feel you may be holding on to. Then ask her to fill…

Everyone Needs Some Me Time to Relax and Center

We all have days we wish we could just hibernate and hide from everyone. This is when you need to have a special care package ready to go to relax you physically and mentally and recenter yourself spiritually.

I have a small kit made up in advance for when I take this me time. Mine includes a long incense sticks or cones of either sandalwood or jasmine (lavender is also very good for relaxing with), my favorite Celtic music bookmarked on my computer to find it easier, a big handful of my favorite Epsom salts in a Ziploc type bag or other holder, a smudge stick, a bar of scents soap, a black taper and a white taper candle, my favorite lotion, and a robe (type depends on the temperature in my home). I also shut off my cell/mobile phone and anything else that someone could call me on like Skype.

Allow a minimum of 2 hours for yourself to get the benefits you deserve.

I do a smudging in my den and bathroom and also myself. Then get into my usually hot bath with the salts. I soak for a while until I feel my muscles completely relax m(draining cooled water and adding more hot if I feel the need to) than I use one of my scented soaps to wash with (my hair is tied up because I wash it in the sink before getting into my bath or just leave dry, no one says you have to wash your hair just because you take a bath). After getting out of the bath and drying off I rub lotion on every part of my body I can comfortably reach just to feel the wonder of what the deities choose to make us into thousands of years ago.

Then if I feel like it put on my robe and go into my den or bedroom. Depending on my mood whether I stay in the robe or lay down skyclad.

Once in my den or bedroom,  I have a small table next to the daybed in my den so the black candle is set on the southwest corner and the white in the northeast. I light the black candle first asking Hades and Persephone to take away all the negative energy, anger, resentment, envy, etc I may still be harboring inside myself.  Next, I  light the white candle asking Ra and Mother Earth to fill me with love, positive energy and to be grounded. I then light the incense I choose while enjoying the scent of the incense and listening to the music  I do a relaxation technique (which I will describe below) and then I let my mind to float free not focusing on any one thought especially if it is a negative one. I usually wind up falling asleep and many times have had messages and/or vision brought to me by my ancestors, guides, some deities. These dreams I write down what I can remember of them when I awaken. The dreaming does not happen every time.

The two most important things to take away from this experience is one does not feel guilty for taking the time to pamper and nurture yourself because we all need to. The other thing is to take a is relaxed, centered mind, body, and spirit from reconnecting them all.

RELATION TECHNIQUE: Starting with your toes and working up the body tighten each muscle as you take as deep a breath as you can then allow the muscle to completely relax as you slowly exhale all the air you took in. This should take you at least 15 to 20 minutes to get all your muscles relaxed and your mind to slow down.

A great place you can get your incense, soap, candles and smudge sticks is Magickal Necessities. Below are the links for the items available:

Incense Cones

Soaps

Smudge Sticks

Chime (smaller) Candles

We’re Going Home! We’re Going Home! The Time Has Finally Come!

I wanted to let you know that we will be off the internet for the next few days because……

WE ARE GOING HOME!

 

If you remember my house was burnt to the ground last Fall by a man who had been stalking me. I was in the hospital for several weeks and had several complications from having to exit my cabin through the second floor window. Well, after all we have been through, the boys and I are now getting to go home. Lord M has worked the contractors and the construction workers from morning to night. The inside of my cabin is now finishsed. All that needs to be done is put on the front porch and finish the back screened in porch. Lord M asked the contractors if we moved back in now if we would be in the way. The contractors answered with a big “NO!” We wouldn’t be in the way. So while they are working on the front, we are moving in the back door.

 

It seems like this day has been a long time in the coming but it is finally here. I cannot begin to tell you how happy and over joyed we are. We have already started boxing things up and we are now ready to go. So for the next few days, we will be off the internet and moving my happy rump and the boys back in my new cabin. I am sorry for the inconvenience but I will be so delighted to get back to my home and have my life return to some sort of normal, I don’t know what to do. It shouldn’t take us that long to move everything back in. Everyone here has volunteered to help and we are excited about the news that we can now go back home. I wanted to let you know where we would be for the next few days.

 

The store will still be open if you would like to place an order. One of the boys or myself will be keeping an eye on it off and on. We still need several items to get started housekeeping again. So place those orders! I am so happy this morning I don’t know what to do and I wanted to share the good news with you…

WE’RE GOING HOME!

Love ya,

Lady A
