Blessed Be Comments
Let calm flow in like waves of water
With each breath in, with each breath out.
 
Let tension ease like ropes unknotted
In magick’s light there is no doubt.
 
The Goddess wraps her cloak around me
Loving warmth and reassurance
That all will happen as it must
Gifting me with calm endurance.
 
No more worries, no more stress
My burdens lie on stronger shoulders
I release anxiety’s weight
Turn into pebbles what seemed like boulders.
 
Faith is mine and strength is mine
The love of those who stay unseen
Let calm flow in with every breath
I am grounded and serene.

So Mote It Be.

Alectromancy (or Alectryomancy)

Alectromancy (or Alectryomancy)


An ancient divinatory for that utilized a cock. When practicing this divination a circle which was divided into as many parts as there were in the alphabet was drawn in a closed place. Then a wheat-corn was placed in each section beginning with the first letter, or A. Whoever placed the corn must recite a certain incantation while doing it. The time for this divination is when the sun or moon is in Aries or Leo.


The cock must be young and white. When his claws are cut off he is forced to swallow both of them together with a small roll of parchment made of lambskin upon which have been previously written words. Now the diviner holding the cock must repeat a certain incantation or conjuration. Next, when putting the cock with the circle, he must recite two verses of the Psalms, which are exactly the midmost of the seventy-two verses in the entry on Onimancy, and it should be noted on the authority of an ancient Rabbi that there is not anything within these seventy-two verses which is not of some use within
Kabbalism.


The cock, being in the circle, is observed to see from which of the letters he peck the grains, and upon these others must be quickly placed because frequently some words often contain the same letter two or three times. The letters should be written down and assembled, for they will infallibly reveal the name of the person concerning whom the inquiry was made.


A story of doubt concerns the magician Iamblicus who used this divination to discover the successor of Valens Caesar in the Roman Empire. . However, the bird just pecked four grains that spelled “T h e o.” This left a great uncertainty. The letters could stand for “Theodosius,” “Theodotus,” “Theodorus,” or “Theodectes.” When Valens heard of this divination he had several persons murdered whose names began with these letters. The magician to escape his known fate drank a draught of poison.
This form of divination resembles the use of a planchette or ouija board.
Another form of Alectromacy is sometimes practiced when a cock crows or is heard crowing.


Another version of the above divinatory incident was related by Ammanius Marcellinus in the fourth century AD. In this version the ritual is described somewhat differently. Sorcerers begun by placing a basin made of different metals on the ground and drawing around it at equal distances the letters of the alphabet. Then the sorcerer possessing the deepest occult knowledge would come forth, enveloped in a long veil, holding in his hands branches of vervain, and letting forth dreadful cries which were accompanied by hideous convulsions. Eventually, almost immediately, he would stop before the basin where he became rigid and motionless. He, then, struck with the branch in his hand upon a letter several times, and then proceeded doing likewise on other letters until the sufficient amount was selected to form a heroic verse which was then given out to the assembly.


Wnen the Emperor Valens was informed of this divinatory ritual, he was so appalled that the infernal powers had been consulted concerning his destiny that he ordered that not only the sorcerers but all the philosophers in Rome be severely punished that many lost their lives.


Details of the performance of Alectryomancy are exactly and curiously described in the fourth song of the Caquet Bonbec, written by the 14th century poet Jonquieres.

Against an Excess Drink

Against an Excess Drink

 

Components:

A glass of wine

 

Instructions:

Before those serpent alcohols

That tempt the tongue and soothe the brain

Shall rise and wind their glittering coils

About your feverish fears again,

Treat them firmly, do not fail

Before their clear hypnotic eyes;

Confess their power, yet prevail

Before they learn to turn and tease;

Utter this charm, that wit and will

May stare them down and hold them still:

“Knowledge I have
While thou hast none,
I can make songs
Beyond they tongue,
All of thy offerings
First were mine:
I keep my spirit
And need not thine.”
 

Then raise to your lips a glass of wine – spit in it, empty it down the drain.

The Witch’s Psalm

Goddess Comments & Graphics

The Witch’s Psalm

The Goddess is my Mother, I shall not have need. She asks that I lie down in moon light pastures, She leads me to the twilight’s gleam. She restores my soul. The God guides my path of self knowledge in the All’s ever glowing knowledge.

Yea though I will walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I Fear not the crone for she comforts and guides me to my new home. I fear no evil, for evil is only misunderstood energy.

The Goddess’s Wand and broom guide me every step I take. She prepares a table for me, next to her. My enemies are only misunderstood friends, I should not fear. I will anoint my forehead with blessed oil, for I am kissed there by the Goddess.

My life truly overflows with love, because I understand religion is in your heart, not in a temple.

Surely Goodness will follow me all the days of my life, and I dwell in the forest of the Lord and Lady.

HOW TO BREAK A JINX OR GET UNCROSSED

HOW TO BREAK A JINX OR GET UNCROSSED

If you have been crossed or jinxed, or someone has put roots on you, you may not know

who did it, but you may suspect and even be able to remember how it was done.
One common way to cross someone is to sprinkle Crossing Powder, Hot Foot Powder,
or Goofer Dust across their trackway or doorstep, or dress their socks or shoes.
I have even heard of women who will dress their own privates so that a man will
drag himself in it and lose his nature or jinx up his love life.
Another way to fix a person is to get something personal of theirs and stop it up in a bottle
with roots and nails, pins, or needles. Your hair may have been gotten this way, or a piece
of your clothing, or your personal concerns. This trick may have been done to you by an
enemy to control you, dominate you, or get revenge on you by destroying your happiness
in love and money matters.
First, if you have been having bad luck for a long time or are suffering from an unnatural illness
but you have no known enemy and no one has ever openly declared themselves against you,
check around your home and see if you can find something that anyone could have secretly
put there to jinx you, like burying something in your front yard. If you find something, like a bottle
with personal effects, roots, or hairs in it, dig it up and burn it or throw it away in running water.
If you can’t find such a thing, you may have been fixed with some mess sprinkled on your food
or on your shoes.
You need to get 2 white offertory candles for uncrossing and some Uncrossing oil to dress them.
Also, and this is important, before lighting the candles, I want you to take a bath in some purifying
herbs or Uncrossing type bath preparation. The hyssop herb bath is something you can make
up yourself from hyssop leaves or you can buy ready-made Uncrossing Bath Crystals with Hyssop,
or — for a really strong job — you can use the 13 Herb Spiritual Bath, which contains hyssop and
12 other uncrossing herbs.
Many folks use 13 packets of 13 Herb Spiritual Bath and take a bath every morning for a total
of 13 days to clear away a really bad jinx. Hyssop is what is recommended in the Bible for
purification. (Look up the 51st Psalm; this is the one that tells you how to use the hyssop
bath. If you are not a Christian, you can still use the hyssop herb; it is traditional for
uncrossing in any case.)
To prepare the bath, you either brew up the herbs into a tea and strain it or dissolve the
mineral crystals in warm water. Then you recite the 51st Psalm (or an uncrossing spell of
your choice) as you pour the bath water over your head. If you are taking the 13 Herb
Bath, you pour the water and recite the 51st Psalm 13 times for each morning’s bath.
When you have finished the bath, step out of the tub and light the 2 white candles that
have been dressed with Uncrossing Oil. Stand between the candles. Do not dry yourself
with a towel — let the bath water dry on you in the air as the candles burn.
Now recite the 37th Psalm, the one folks call “The Uncrossing psalm.”
This is the one that begins “Fret not thyself with evil-doers…”
Pinch out the candles (don’t blow them out) if you intend to work this spell for the
full 13 days. If you do will only be doing it for one day, just let the candles burn until
they go out, no matter how long that takes.
If you are not a Christian, then instead of the 37th Psalm, just voice your request in your
own words that the jinx be lifted and the one who put it on you be struck down.
After taking this bath, some people then use the remaining bath water to wash down their
floors and especially the doorstep of the house. Mix the bath water into a bucket with some
Chinese Wash or Van Van Oil to make it stronger. Wash from the back of the premises to the
front. Sweep out the front doorway area while the floor is still wet. Once you are done with the
wash water, carry whatever remains out of the house and pour it on the ground outside
(not down the drain).
Do this every morning upon awakening — bathing, praying, lighting the white candles, and
washing down the house — for 13 days and this will bring you relief from crossed conditions.
If you know who has put this crossed condition on you and you want to reverse the spell
onto them, burn a black candle on their name (putting their name on a paper beneath an
overturned saucer under the candle) or carve their name on the candle. If you use a black
candle in the figure of the Devil and carve their name on it, dress it with Cast Off Evil Oil and
things will go harder with them. If you don’t know the name of the person who did this trick to
you, carve the words “My Enemy” on the candle. Burn the black candle on the toilet tank, a
little bit each night, pinching it out between burnings. Burn it while the moon is growing smaller —
and on the dark of the moon, the darkest night of the month, turn the burning black candle
upside down and extinguish it in the toilet bowl, saying
“Thus will you, [name of enemy], meet your fate!”
Throw the remaining black candle stub and wax into a crossroads — or into the yard of the
person who had put the roots on you or jinxed you.

Lady Abyss’ Green Tip #1

Did you know that Licorice Root is a very nutritive, soothing tonic, beneficial for convalescing and elderly people. The sweet taste comes from fifty molecules of natural sugar abating low blood sugar and low blood pressure. It is helpful for overcoming alcoholic and addictive behavior and builds muscle in children. Licorice root is an intestinal tonic that combines well with marshmallow root. It is not recommended for hypertension.
