MOTHER EARTH/GAIA/ALL EARTH GODDESS’ EARTH DAY April 22, 2021

ALWAYS TRY TO LEAVE THE PLACES YOU TRAVEL CLEANER THAN WHEN YOU GOT THERE!

The theme of this year’s Earth Day is “Restore or Earth” As Pagans and/or Witches it is our duty to help clean up, plant new life, etc. for the Earth Goddess (Whatever name you may caller by). We are conservationists working at ground level to restore and keep the Earth Goddess clean. This way she can continue providing us with all living things that we make our shelter from the weather from, the clothes we wear, and the food we eat.

Remember to pick up after your dog as their scat has E.coli in it which if enough of it seeps into the ground our water and food sources could be come contaminated. Making our water undrinkable and our food inedible.

Treat her with love and respect

We thank you (insert the Earth Goddess’ name you use) for nourishing all living things that help to protect and nourish our physical bodies.

May we always strive to make you a beautiful and healthy in our every day lives.

These are our words to offer our help. This is our will to make our word rings true.

So Mote It Be ( Use whatever words you end your spellcasting and/or prayers with.)

Time Changes Are Happening Starting This Coming Weekend

Please bear with me as I figure out what countries change from either daylight savings time to standard and vise versa. This reflects the Current Planetary Positions. It is not as easy as you may think it is. For example the United States of America changing to Daylight Saving Time on Sunday, March 14 at 2:00 CDT but Australia does not switch from Daylight Savings Time to Standard time until Sunday, April 4 at 2:00 AEST. So this changes how many hours ahead Australia is of the U.S.A. I just get to pull my hair out twice a year but it grows back fast…LOL! I will try my best to get the times right and the abbreviation for the different time zone I do posts for daily.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this confusing time.

Public Service Announcement About Your Webcam

(This is not being posted to try to sell you anything. It is for safety reasons only I copy and paste this information.)

Why Webcam Security Matters

By Click&Clean – Updated Friday, May 8, 2020. Nowadays, webcams are standard equipment on most devices, including desktop and laptop PCs, tablets, and smartphones. A webcam allows you to send a picture in real time from one device to another through an Internet connection.

However, this does not mean that we know what we are doing with them, and many people simply forget that they are vulnerable to being hacked. Recent Wizcase research showed that more than 15,000 private webcams are accessible to the general public.

Webcam hacking attacks are one of the most popular activities of malicious users and have been actively exploited by them for many years; for example, to obtain visual information about the details of your home.

In most cases, webcams have indicator lights that show when the webcam is in use. However, hackers and cybercriminals create malware that can turn off the activity indicator. If your webcam has been hacked, then even though the notification light is off, the webcam can capture video, and someone can spy on you.

Security Tips to Protect Yourself Against Webcam Hackers

1. Cover Up Your Webcam

The simplest solutions are the most effective. To be absolutely sure that no one is spying on you through your webcam and your webcam is protected from potential attacks, use some electrical tape or a webcam cover to physically cover up your webcam.

2. Unplug or Disable Your Webcam

The next best step to protect your webcam is to unplug or disable it. If you are using an external webcam connected via USB, just unplug it when not in use. If your laptop or desktop has a built-in webcam, disable it completely via Device Manager.

3. Scan Your Device for Webcam-Focused Malware

It is crucial to regularly run anti-malware scans to protect your webcam. But traditional antivirus software may not catch webcam-focused malware or spyware. Therefore, you should consider downloading a second opinion anti-malware scanner, such as Malwarebytes.

4. Don’t Open Email Attachments From Unknown Sources or Click on Suspicious Links

Often, scammers use phishing emails to trick users into opening harmful links or downloading malicious files from email attachments. If you receive an email from someone you don’t know, don’t open it, and don’t click on attachments or any suspicious links.

In addition, many webcam hackers use shortened links on social media sites that will redirect you to a malicious website or automatically start downloading malware. Therefore, never open any unknown files, shortened URLs, or any links, unless you’re sure that it’s from someone you trust and know.

5. Keep Your Webcam Software Up-to-Date

To prevent your laptop or desktop computer from catching malware, it’s important to keep your operating system, web browser, and any other type of software up-to-date. If you use outdated vulnerable firmware, this could compromise your privacy, and cybercriminals can easily exploit these vulnerabilities and flaws.

A Thought for Today – Have You Thought to Thank Your Health Care Team?

In this time of uncertainty, stress, and worry about the possibility of you, a loved one, friend, neighbor, co-workers, etc getting the COVID-19 virus that we may forget our own health care team we see for whatever ailments we get or chronic conditions we may have. If you have a way, even if it is a note by snail mail, to thank your personal health care team and their support team that will not interfer with other patients that need to contact them because or illness or injury or whatever than please make sure to thank them. Besides thanking them for their selfness hard work keep them in your daily prayers, meditation, or whatever you call it when you communicate with the Goddess and/or God ask that they and their family stay healthy.

This is a small way to help these wonderful, caring people to know their efforts not just now with this strain of a coronavirus running rampant but them being there for you and others 24/7/365.

I was able to do this through a phone app for the umbrella group my doctor and her group practice they belong to called My Chart. I also plan to send a thank you for all you to do not just to my doctor and the health care team but addressed to the entire office to include the offices support stuff also. The support staff to me includes the receptionist, billing, etc. Without these people the office could not run as smoothly.

If you chose to accept this I send blessings to you and your family for good health, less stress, and positive energy.

Coronavirus Update March 13, 2020

The update posts are not meant to scare anyone. They are meant to keep you informed only.

This is information from a general search via Google Coronavirus Update

Public Health Message from World Health Organization

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak- World Health Organization Information

No matter where you are in the world reading this take simple precautions such as washing hands often, if your cannot wash them carry hand sanitizer to use often when out in public. Those of you with children and/or others that come in and out often insist they wash there hands well before touching anything in your home. To help keep your home COVID-19 free use either a throw away cloth such as Clorox Wipes on all door knobs, counters, TV remotes, computer keyboards, game controls, etc.

If you are considered a high risk for catching this wear a mask or heavy winter scarf and gloves outside whenever you leave your home. I am in this high risk catagory and wear a winter scarf along with medical gloves underneath regular gloves so I don’t look to silly. I am lucky to have kept many scarfs and thin knit gloves over the years so I wear a scarf and pair of gloves once then they go into the laundry. These are the only thing in my home that always get washed with HOT WATER and a 1/4 cup of WHITE VINEGAR. Also dry them on HOT. White vinegar is a bacteria killer not as good as chlorine bleach but it doesn’t fade my clothes and I am not allergic to white vinegar. I also wash any coat I have been outside in to go anywhere with the scarfs and gloves but hang dry it.

Earth Magic Oracle Cards – Gaia Nurturing

GAIA CARD

I bought this oracle deck because it called to me as a way to bring Mother Earther or Gaia or any other name of names we know this wonderful planet we live on. Gaia gives us unconditional love no matter how much humans disrespect her in a mirid of ways.

This card Gaia – Nurturing from, the Earth Magic Oracle Cards by Steven D. Farmer, tells me Gaia loves us unconditionally no matter how much humans disrespect her through too many people to us overusing natural resources through too many ways to list here. So let’s go with some highlights, not enough open space left in the “first world counties” to grow enough food to feed their overpopulation, and in “third world countries” where there is drought caused by too many manmade structures built on other parts of Gaia that causes the natural order of rain, evaporation of moisture to bring much-needed rains to fracking to over-harvesting medicinal plants, fungus, insects, etc that grow in the rain forests and or places to throwing trash where ever they are at which causes wildlife to live unnaturally using things such as plastic to build nests or trying to feed a cigarette butt to their offspring. to places using the oceans, other small and/or large waterways to dump garbage collected for the overpopulated cities or people just throwing things overboard to thousands of other big and small ways we rape, pillage, overuse and disrespect our beautiful, all-loving Gaia.

Ask yourself this question and really think about an honest answer you give yourself and to the younger generations following us. What should we be teaching not just from books about how Gaia, the waterways (this includes any kind of pond, stream, river, sea, ocean, etc) and the air we and they breathe but also how we choose to be part of the solution in helping, honoring, and most of all living in harmony with her. Or are you going to be part of the problem of continuing to use up Gaia’s many resources she gives us freely as well as lovingly? Or are you somewhere in between these two positions?

A Thought for More Than Just Today

Priestess Hypatia and got to talk for a while Wednesday late afternoon. Physically she and her family are. But just as probably most Australians emotionally tore up with what has happened to their beautiful country basically needlessly. If the government would have been listening to the ingenious residents of many centuries and allowed those, to my way of thinking, who are learned and professional bush burners to keep the land productive with controlled burns that do not kill and destroy needlessly.

Aboriginal method to control fire

I ask each person reading this to pray or talk to or however you choose to communicate with the God or Goddess of your choice asking that they help open the closed minds of those with power and even those without open their minds to listen to the elders that have had instructions handed down from generation to generation on how to burn the bush in a manner that is safe for Mother Earth and her inhabitants.

Priestess Hypatia also told me there is talk of the ingenious elders teaching people from the USA how to safely do controlled burning to keep us from having out of control wildfires. Which to me would be answering many Californians prayers, especially those that have lost everything in a wildfire some people more than once.

In Wisconsin when I was a child, as you enter it from another state, in most rest areas along major highways, and in other locations they have very big signs of Smokey the Bear with his ranger hat on and a dirt shovel in his hands with his famous saying “Only you can prevent forest fires.” and blow that the risk of fire for that day in different colors depending on the level of risk for a spark or a carelessly thrown out burning cigarette or lightening or anything else that could start a fire. Even though we do not hear about fires in Wisconsin I have seen a couple and as a child I was terrified and as an adult just very angry at whoever the careless person had been. These fires I saw would be only a tiny drop in the bucket compared to the fires in Australia that burned so huge and hot as to create their own weather systems and kill even the seeds that would make the plants and trees starting to grow in the next year or so.

Us as humans, supposedly the smartest animal on this planted, need to learn that “new, improved modern ways” are not always better especially when it to caring for and living in harmony with all living things. We need to listen to the ingenious people who have inhabited the lands we live on for the best way to keep the land and I do not mean just the piece of land your own, as Priestess Hypatia told the land is the whole country around you not just your tiny piece of it, but your state, country, and continent you live in is also something we all need to take better care of. Than maybe…hopefully we will go back to when controlled burns were done instead of uncontrollable wildfires burning, actually having a distinction between the 4 seasons, enough rain globally for crops to grow, humans, domestic and wild animals would have clean water to drink, humans in what we consider 3rd world countries could live as their ancestors did and manage the land and fresh water in such away we would not see commercials asking for donations to feed hungry children or adults. It is time we look back before the industrial revolution to see how things with the land were done not just for the betterment of Mother Earth but for the betterment of all living things that grow upon her. It is time to quit raping the land and to again start caring about it.

So, please in your daily communication with whoever the Goddess and/or God you commune with ask for enlightenment not only for others but for yourself as well to open minds globally to listen to the elders of the land on the old ways of keeping Mother Earth healthy and living in harmony with her. Thank you for doing this!

Blessed be dear ones.

Earthquakes, Volcanic Eruptions, Wildfires and Climate Changes

Please listen to this song while reading this post. Combined I am hoping it will help all of us to treat Gaia with a whole hellva lot more respect as we would any Crone or other Elder in our blood and spirit families. Ask them about how the planet was different when they were a child the older the person you ask there more you will be amazed at the things they have seen in there life both good and bad.

The Earth is My Mother

I wrote to Priestess Hypatia giving her highlights of the information being written about the unprecedented wildfires in Australia. I asked if she could let us know what is being reported there.

This is a link was her reply Sierra Club News

She has also told me in other emails while what is being reported worldwide is what that government, having his their heads in the sand for decades knowing this apocalyptic change was coming, is for the most part controlling to make themselves look good.

General Search “Natural” Catastrophes Australia 2020

While the Australian wildfires are dominating people’s thoughts worldwide let’s take a look at other places on Gaia where she is showing in spectacular ways she is not going to put up with humans ignoring her warnings that climate changes are every where. Yet humans still continue to rape her of trees, plant life, wildlife,entire ecosystems, etc on land in any kind of waterway from the smallest creeks all the way up to our oceans, and the very air our children breathe are being decimated for what for human kind to take more land to cover over with asphalt, concrete, buildings, and large ships to name a few things. Instead of having a what use to be a normal flow of water between the sky and planet through evaporation to precipitation back to evaporation as so the cycle continued being the rain to different locations as their turn came out precipitation cycle no longer has enough land to evaporate the mixture need for precipitation to do it job causing catastrophic droughts and contributing to climate changes which can bring about many different types of horrible changes not only to Gaia but every living thing on her, people starving in record numbers, years of drought sometimes followed by some much rain coming down to fast for the parched planet to make use of instead turns these places into a different type of danger zone with flooding,  landslides, crops ruined, people drowning, people having to evacuate, infecting drinking water with unusual bacteria that kill humans and wildlife.

All of this comes from the growth of “intelligence” by humans starting way back to the first time human mastered fire making up through the present with us not only living in non-harmony with Gaia but with our Universe as a whole because of all the human and space garbage circling Gaia which in turn affects how sunlight is filtered through the stratosphere and astrophere which in turn affects plant life which in turn affects the precipitation cycle. So no matter how much humankind protest that there is no change in the climate or that it is being caused by nature it boils down to the politicians and others raping Gaia on a daily bases instead of living in harmony with all living things, the land, and water that are also entitled to continue living just as humans are. Honestly if the entire planet went back to living in man-made shelters made from fallen trees, our only fuel fallen trees and dead planets, we left it to the people who know when and how to do control burns to nourish Gaia rather than devastate her, tore down most of not all building over three stories high, instead On better mass transportation outside of major cities, grew most of our own foods with remembering to rotate the crops, we’re more careful with the amount of electricity and water we use, consistently recycle everything that can be especially urging were we live to have a recycling program for businesses very slowly but in time picking up speed to start living in harmony with every living creature, plant, tree, etc out children’s children could hopefully start seeing a better world to live on, no more wars, or hunting species to extinction, ect.

Ok sorry I got kind of off-topic. There are other places with catastrophes going on that can use our prayers and positive thoughts and energy being sent to them.

Porto Rico has been trying to come back since more than one hurricanes hit the islands in 2018 have since October been ground zero for numerous earthquakes reading as high as 6.5 On the Rictor Scale.

I am sure the list of humans mistreatment of Gaia and her finally getting justices for all the wrongs done to her is longer. Please if you know of anywhere that devastation is taking place please name it in the comments section or write directly to Lady Beltane at WitchesCovenHearts@yahoo.com

What can we do to help humans, all wildlife, plants, trees, crops, etc as a community of witches and pagans? First, be very careful about what intention you have in your mind to help a country. YOu do not want your thinking to be on an intention of fire while trying to bring rain to Australia and/or North Korea nor do you want to be thinking of rain when trying to ask Gaia to stop the earthquakes in Porto Rico or the flooding etc in the Southern United States. I will not be putting up prayers or spells for you to tweak into your own words to helps these different countries. You write from the heart ask your Spirit Guides and ancestors to help you find the words you want. We are in the waning Moon cycle which can help your prayers and/or spells be more powerful. But if it feels right to you to do it in the daytime rather than at night the waning Moon is still with us and if you can do it after 1:00 PM your local time the waning Sun will add its energy to your workings as well. If you need some help with a spell and/or prayer for this as you are a newer witch or pagan just write to Lady Beltane and the Council of Elders at covenlifescoven@gmail.com Please put Catastrophe Help Needed in the emails Subject Line. Thank you.

We are collecting donations to be sent to where they are needed most. A donation can be made by using the yellow Donate button of the Homepage of CovenLife.co or WitchofTheCraft.com Lady Beltan.e and the Council of Elders will not decide where the funds go on there own. Everyone who donates $3.00 or more to this fund will have a vote on where it will go. We will pick the top 5 worse areas in need of help, Lady Beltane and if someone wants to volunteer to help her to find the most trustworthy as possible organization(s) to donate the funds to the help would be very appreciated. When making a donation there should be a place where you can write a short note put “Helping Fund” in that area and also email Lady Beltane and the Elder Council at (special email address will be added January 15, 2020, Northern Hemisphere date) put “Helping Fund” in your emails subject line, please. We will collect donations starting today through January 30, 2020. A full accounting will be given for every penny donated available upon request after February 5, 2020. Those who donate will be emailed a ballot one February 2, 2020, to vote for which organization in which country or worldwide the funds will go to. This list will include animal rescue organizations which I guarantee will not include the non-governmental Humane Society of America or ASPA.
