Cast this spell to rid yourself of pain, hurt and sadness.

Clear the pain. Clear the hurt. Clear the sadness.

Sip three sips of the water. Before each sip, repeat:

I rid myself of all negativity, right now.

Allow all of your negative feelings to be cleansed with the salt water. Imagine transforming any pain or sadness into positive change elements in your life. Feel yourself being cleansed of all that burdens you. When you are done, bid farewell to the elements and pull up the circle.

Self Meditation for Daily Life: I am Letting Go

Self Meditation for Daily Life: I am Letting Go

 
  Here’s a powerful daily meditation for increasing the level of peace in our lives which is very useful:  

Allow your body to relax in your chair. Let your arms, your shoulders, and your back release their tension and just drop.

As you’re sitting there watching the screen, make a conscious decision that there is nothing else that you must do for the next couple of minutes.

Take a look at an area in your life which has been causing you stress. Make a conscious decision that there is nothing you must do about it for the next  couple of minutes. Let it go entirely, knowing that you can pick it up again shortly if you choose to.

Repeat Step #3 with another area of life which has been causing you stress.

Repeat Step #3 until you feel convinced that in this moment, there is nothing you must experience stress about or concern for.

Allow yourself to experience the freedom for these few minutes of not having to worry or feel stress about anything in your life. Notice that nothing is  getting worse for lack of your concern about it.

Offer yourself the opportunity to release your worries and concerns regularly by using different self meditations in your daily life.

Gardnerian Traditional Witchcraft – B.2. To Help the Sick (1953)

Gardnerian Traditional Witchcraft – B.2. To Help the Sick (1953)

B.2. To Help the Sick (1953)
[1] Ever remember the promise of the goddess,  “For ecstasy is mine and joy on earth” so let there ever be joy in your heart.  Greet people with joy, be glad to see them.  If times be hard, think, “It might have been worse.  I at least have known the joys of the Sabbath, and I will know them again.”  Think of the grandeur, beauty, and Poetry of the rites, of the loved ones you meet through them.  If you dwell on this inner joy, your health will be better.  You must try to banish all fear,  for it will really touch you.  It may hurt your body,  but your soul is beyond it all.
[2] And ever remember, that if you help others it makes you forget your own woes.  And if another be in pain, do what you may to distract his attention from it.  Do not say “You have no pain,” but if you may, administer the drugs which sooth as well as those that cure.  But ever strive to make them believe they are getting better.  Install into them happy thoughts.  If you can only get this into his inner mind so that it be always believed.
[3] To this end it is not wrong to let people think that we of the cult have more power than we have.  For the truth is that if they believe we have more power than we really possess, we do really possess these powers, insomuch we can do good to them.
[4] You must try to find out about people.  If you tell a slightly sick man, “You are looking better.  You will soon be well,” he will feel better, but if he is really ill, or in pain, his Knowledge that he is in pain will cause him to doubt your words in future.  But if you give him one of the drugs and then say, “The pain is growing less.  Soon it will be gone,” because the pain goes, the next time you say, “The pain is going,” he will believe you and the pain will really get less.  But you must ever say so with conviction, and this conviction must come from your believing it yourself, because you yourself know that if you can fix his mind so that he believes you, it is true.
[5] ‘Tis often better to look exactly between their eyes, looking as if your eyes pierced their heads, opening your eyes as wide as you may and never blink.  This continued gazing oft causes the patient to grow sleepy.  If they show signs of this, say “You are growing sleepy.  You will sleep, you are tired.  Sleep.  Your eyes grow tired.  Sleep.”  If they close their eyes, say “Your eyes close, you are tired, you cannot open your eyes.”  If they cannot, say “Your arms are tired, you cannot raise them.”  If they cannot, say “I am master of your mind.  You must ever believe what I tell you.  When I look like this into your eyes you will sleep and be subject to my will,” then tell them they will sleep and wake up refreshed, feeling better.  Continue this with soothing and healing drugs, and try to infuse into them the feeling of ecstasy that you feel at the Sabbath.  They cannot feel it in full, but you can command them to feel what is in your own mind, and try to concentrate on this ecstasy.  If you may safely tell that you are of the Cult, your task may be easier.  And it were well to command them to know it only with their sleeping mind, and forget it, or to be at least unable to tell anyone about it when awake. A good way is to command them that, if they are ever questioned about Witchcraft or Witches, to immediately fall asleep.
[6] Ever remember if tempted to admit or boast of belonging to the cult you be endangering your brothers, for though now the fires of persecution may have died down, who knows when they may be revived?  Many priests have knowledge of our secrets, and they well know that, though much religious bigotry has calmed down, many people would wish to join our cult.  And if the truth were known of its joys, the Churches would lose power, so if we take many recruits, we may loose the fires of persecution against us again.  So ever keep the secrets.
[7] Think joy, think love, try to help others and bring joy into their lives.  Children are naturally easier to influence than grown people.  Ever strive to work through people’s existing beliefs. For instance, more than half of the world believe in amulets.  An ordinary stone is not an amulet but if it hath a natural hole in it, it must be something unusual, so if the patient hath this belief give him one.  But first carry it next your skin for a few days, forcing your will into it, to cure pain, to feel safe, or against their particular fear, and this amulet may keep imposing your will when you are absent.  The masters of talismans knew this full well when they say they must be made in a circle, to avoid distraction, by someone whose mind is on the subject of the work.
[8] But keep your own mind happy.  Remember the Words of the Goddess: “I give unimaginable joys on Earth, certainty, not faith, while in life, and upon death, peace unutterable, rest, and ecstasy, and the promise that you will return again.”  In the old days many of us went to the flames laughing and singing, and so we may again. We may have joy in life and beauty, and peace and Death and the promise of return.
[9] The Bible speaks sooth, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine but a broken spirit breaketh the bones.”  But you may not have a merry heart.  Perchance you were born under an evil star.  I think that the effects of the stars are overestimated, but you cannot make a merry heart to order, you say.  But you can, in the Cult; there be secret processes by which your will and imagination may be influenced.  This process also affects the body, and brings it to joy.  Your body is happy, so your mind is happy.  You are well because you are happy, and you are happy because you are well.
[10] Prayer may be used with good result if the patient believes it can and will work.  Many believe it can, but do not believe their God or saint will help.  Prayers to the Goddess help, especially the Amalthean Horn Prayer, as it causes stimulation to the body as well as to the mind.

Daily OM for November 20th – Healing with Hurt

Healing with Hurt
Using Your Pain to Help Others

by Madisyn Taylor

You can channel your pain into helping others and spreading a tide of curative energy throughout the world.

Pain is a fact of being and one that permeates all of our lives to some degree. Since the hurt we feel may be a part of the experiences that have touched us most deeply, we are often loathe to let it go. It is frequently easier to keep our pain at our sides, where it a

cts as a shield that shelters us from others and gives us an identity—that of victim—from which we can draw bitter strength. However, pain’s universality can also empower us to use our hurt to help others heal. Since no pain is any greater or more profound than any other, what you feel can give you the ability to help bring about the recovery of individuals whose hurts are both similar to and vastly different from your own. You can channel your pain into transformative and healing love that aids you in helping individuals on a one-to-one basis and spreading a tide of curative energy throughout the world.

The capacity to heal others evolves naturally within those who are ready to disassociate themselves from their identity as victims. In fact, the simple decision to put aside the pain we have carried is what grants us the strength to redeem that pain through service. There are many ways to use the hurt you feel to help others. Your pain gives you a unique insight into the minds of people who have experienced trauma and heartache. You can draw from the wellspring of strength that allowed you to emerge on the other side of a painful experience and pass that strength to individuals still suffering from their wounds. You may be able to council individuals in need by showing them the coping methods that have helped you survive or simply by offering sympathy. A kinship can develop that allows you to relate more closely with those you are trying to aid and comfort.

Helping others can be a restorative experience that makes your own heart grow stronger. In channeling your pain into compassionate service and watching others successfully recover, you may feel a sense of euphoria that leads to increased feelings of self-worth and optimism. Your courageous decision to reach out to others can be the best way to declare to yourself and the world that your pain didn’t defeat you, and in fact it helped you heal.

Daily Motivator for Nov. 12th – Embrace responsibility

Embrace responsibility

Don’t blame others, don’t blame the situation, and don’t blame yourself.  Instead of wasting your energy on assigning blame, empower yourself by accepting  responsibility.

The way you experience life is no one’s fault. It is your choice.

Fully accept and embrace responsibility for all that surrounds you, and  something amazing happens. You gain the power to make a positive difference.

If you run from the troubles, they grow stronger and chase you more and more  relentlessly. Yet the moment you take responsibility for those troubles, you  begin to have some control over them.

If you merely wish for your dreams to come true, they won’t. Yet when you  step up and take responsibility for bringing those dreams to life, they begin to  take on real form and substance.

Responsibility is the key that gives you access to all the best life has to  offer. Embrace responsibility in all things, and unlock the great value that is  yours to live.

Aromas to Heal a Broken Heart

Aromas to Heal a Broken Heart

By Francoise Rapp

Too often people write off break-ups as just another page to turn in the book of life. There is some truth in that, but break-ups should be taken a bit more seriously. After all, this is the end of a relationship. And this loss can be as painful as losing a loved one in death. To heal it takes time, self-care, and conscious processing of your emotions. It is vital that you allow this healing process to occur, and take advantage of the situation to treat yourself with gentleness and nurturing.

Here are some other things to keep in mind during this transformative time:

· Avoid any big decisions.

· Go into the pain and the feelings. There is no way out but to get through it…and you will!

· Take long aromatherapy baths with appropriate holistic blends. See recipes below.

· Cry when you need to. Don’t let others tell you to just get over it.

· Be VERY selfish.

· Surround yourself with positive and happy people.

· Dare to ask for a lot of hugs.

· Get a dog or cat, or cuddle with the ones you have.

· Write really awful, bitchy, letters to your ex. Write everything you would love to say. Burn them in the sink. Run the water to make it go away.

· Love yourself. Look in the mirror as often as you can and say wonderful things about yourself aloud.

· Write your way through the feelings.

· Connect with other people who understand and can relate: friends, counselors, message boards on websites, etc.

· Have a healthy lifestyle: eat well, exercise (at least get some fresh air on the beach, at the park, etc.).

· Nourish your soul with beauty: watch movies, read poetry, go to museums.

· Meditate.

· Stay alone and appreciate the tranquility of your aloneness.

There’s no rule for how long the pain of a heartbreak will last. It may take weeks, months or even years. But using the following special aromatherapy blend and ritual will soothe your heart, nurture your wounded soul, and envelop you in comfort. I recommend following this bath ritual every night until you feel the pain has faded.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Your Daily Bath Ritual to Ease Your Broken Heart
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Prepare your aromatherapy blend by adding the following essential oils to a 10-oz bottle and filling with organic vegetable oil:

· 4 drops Rose Essential Oil
· 15 drops Sandalwood Oil
· 9 drops Lavender Oil

Run some warm water for your bath and add 10 drops of your aromatic blend. Light some candles and turn off the lights. Close your eyes and place your hands on your heart. Visualize yourself filled and surrounded by a pink color. Take a few deep breaths. Feel the color soothing your being. Say aloud, “I am love myself.” Take a few deep breaths again. Soak for at least 15 minutes.

After you get out of the bath, pour a few drops of the aromatherapy blend into the palms of your hands and anoint your heart chakra (the seat of love: healing, grieving, acceptance), and the third eye (integrating, detachment, connection with your Higher Self).

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – October 22

Elder’s Meditation of the Day – October 22

“Growth is a painful process.”

–Wilma Mankiller, CHEROKEE

Whenever we grow, we usually need to let go of emotional attachments. Letting go can be painful. Sometimes growth allows us to deal with fear. All fear can fit into two categories: one, we’re going to lose something we have, and two, we’re not going to get something we want. Both of these categories can cause pain. The best way to grow is to pray to the Great Spirit and ask Him to guide and protect us. All growth is guided by God.

My Creator, guide my growth today and give me Your love and courage to help my pain.

Good Blessed Monday Morning To All My Friends & Family!

It is indeed a very Blessed and Good Monday Morning to be here with you today!

 

I sincerely hope none of you thought we had just ship, lol! We are here still bobbling around in the waters.  One day we will quit bobbling and get our act together, maybe?

But this is a glorious day for many reasons today.  It is the official day we honor Martin Luther King, Jr. It is also the day we celebrate our President starting his second term in office. May our prayers and good wishes go out to him and his family today. He is a good and decent man and he will lead our great country in the right directions. Some of the burdens that fall upon his shoulders, I would shutter to think about. So indeed ask the Goddess to bless him and guide him the next four years.

It is also a glorious day to celebrate being alive. Being in the presence of family and friends would love you and you love them. Life is precious. The Goddess grants us these precious moments we have on this plane. I had an experience over the weekend, I would like to share with you. Perhaps those visiting our site, it might touch your heart and see the Goddess in all Her Love and Glory…..

These past weeks have been very stressful for me as some of you know. It has been one thing right after another. I was tired, fed up and stressed beyond my limit. I had back surgery several years ago. I have a three level fusion in my back. All metal, cages, screws, wires, I am the bionic woman. It was a little bit after they did my surgery, they found out I had a bone chip in my back. It was just there beside my spine. It would move, they finally figured out why it moved. It was because I would get stressed. When you get stressed, your muscles contract and squeeze up into a ball. So I could have surgery again or be put on medication to keep me super relaxed. Last week, the medicine had no effect on my stress point. I awoke Saturday morning with my shoulders, neck and head killing me. My neck was swelled up about the size of two grapefruit. In the middle, I could feel a bulge in my neck. It was the bone fragment sitting right at the base of my skull. My husband immediately took me to the hospital. I was in such pain, I just wanted to die. At the hospital, the doctors took x-rays and saw the sharp bone chip pointed right at my brain. It was determined I had to have immediate surgery. I laid in the emergency room till I couldn’t stand the pain no more. I started praying for the Goddess to end my life. Take me home to the Summerlands and end my pain. All I remember is drifting off to a peaceful sleep. I thought this is it, I am going home, my pain is over.

From that point on, all I remember is drifting, calm all around me, a bright white light. I knew for sure I had pasted on. Peace at last, no more pain. Then in the distance, I could see a Lady. A beautiful Lady, her face was perfect and the word beauty does not describe her. As I drifted closer, I could see Her face more clearly. Her skin was perfect. Her face glowed with Light. I would feel Her Love and Comfort all around me. I could see Her hand gently point down to me. Even Her hand was perfect. I felt the warmth of Her Love and Her Embrace. I knew this Lady was my Almighty Goddess. I could feel Her Divine Love. It was Her. Then I drifted back to my hospital bed. I awoke and there was no pain. I felt my neck, it was normal. I couldn’t believe it. The surgery team came in to take me to surgery. I started screaming, “No, No, you must feel my neck. Please x-ray it again.” The doctor told me if I was moved to much, the chip of bone could go right straight to my neck and I would die instantly. I told him I wasn’t, please x-ray me again. To the disapproval of the doctor, I was x-rayed again. The doctors couldn’t explain it the bone chip was gone. The doctors wanted to know what I had done, what happened. I told them I had been praying to my Goddess to let my pain end and let me die. Apparently She had answered my prayers but not with death but with life.  The doctors saw no reason to keep me after doing a few more test they sent me home.

I have no bone chip in my neck, it simply disappeared. Some might call it a miracle. But I call it my Gracious Mother letting me have a second chance at life. I prayed and prayed so hard to die. She told me very clearly that my work and the WOTC is not done. It is not my time to leave this plane just yet. I have Her work to continue. My Goddess removed the bone chip, renewed my spirit, refreshed my soul and filled me with Her Goodness and Love.

We have work to do for OUR GODDESS IS ALIVE! She is Pure Love and Light. We have a responsibility to Her. To spread Her word and let Her Truth Be Told. I know I have a mission to do and I hope after hearing my story, you will feel the same way. We have work to do, ALL of us, not just me. Let’s join together and let the Goddess’ Truth Be Told throughout the world.

Good Saturday Morning My Beloved Family & Friends!

Yesterday wasn’t one of the easiest days in my life. But I will be the first to admit, that when the cougar did pass it was a relief to me. Don’t think me cruel, please. I was with the cougar from the time we picked him up to the time he passed. When we picked him up, I touched him and the Vet asked me if I thought he would make it. I shook my head no. I could feel then that his injuries were to much for him to recover from. The Vet gave me tons of pain medications to soothe him. Toward the end nothing was soothing his suffering. I try my best to take his pain. I managed for a while but eventually it grew so strong I couldn’t stand it. I was exhausted and I put his head in my lap. He opened his eyes and looked at me. I told him, it was ok to leave this plane now. For him to end his suffering, his tolling was over, he had had a good life, now it was time to go home. With those words, I could see the light slip out of his eyes and feel his last gasp. His spirit was gone. I was weak and wore out but I still cried. He had a beautiful soul, wild and full of wonder. The places he had been, the things he had saw, seeing the world through his eyes was beautiful. The men came in the enclosure and picked me up. Then they proceeded to wrap him up properly and with dignity.  After I had time by myself, I had recovered some. We gave our mighty friend the burial he deserved. He passed on to the Summerlands in peace and comfort. His great spirit is now at rest and in a place where only love exists.

I don’t understand people at times, well most of the time. I would love to be able to walk up to the person that shot the cougar. I would put my hand on their shoulder and give them a taste of the pain that the cougar suffered. If they could feel that pain, they would never pick up a gun for the rest of their life. Perhaps if we could walk up to anyone thinking about killing anything whether it be animal or human and give them a taste of the dying’s suffering, they would change their minds. Put down the guns and never think about killing again. For them to know such pain that they can’t stand, no pain pills or shots will relieve, the only thought running through their head is the thought of just dying. But they can’t, they suffer and suffer. That would be the greatest deterrence against hunting, mass murders and homicides the world has ever seen. A pain that won’t stop, all you can do is wish for death but it never comes. Let those people who pull the trigger know how their poor, helpless victims feel. See how it feels to be on the other end of the gun. Realize what the victim goes through and most of all the people left behind.

Is there no hope for this world? Has it grown that cold and callous? Is there nothing that we can do before the world goes over the brink of insanity? This is our year. It is the Year of The Witch. It is our time to unleash our Powers and do what we are suppose to do. Help mankind in spite of itself. It is our time to make the difference. We have stood idly by and kept quiet, we have seen what a mess mankind has made of the world without us. Now it is our turn to clean the mess up. Time to restore goodness and kindness to the World. Time to let the Goddess’ love shine once again upon us all. Time to show the world what it is like to know Pure Love, Pure Kindness and The Goddess, Herself.

Are you with me?
