In The Honor Of Hecate – Hecate Blessing Rite

Witchy Cat Graphics & Comments
Hecate Blessing Rite

Items You Will Need:

An altar or small table covered with a black cloth

One black candle

A glass or chalice filled with red wine

Patchouli incense

A plate filled with bread

Goat cheese

Smoked fish

The Wheel of Hecate symbol (pictured) inscribed with silver ink on black card stock (the wheel should be the size of a dessert or small dinner plate.)

To begin the rite, light the black candle as you say:

Mistress of Magick,
Great Hecate,
Let your Light
Now lead the way.
 

Set the plate of food on top of the Wheel of Hecate. Hold your hands over the food and ask Hecate to bless it as follows:

I summon thee by Witches Rune,
Waxing light and Waning Moon.
With the turning of the tide,
All that’s past be laid aside.
Threefold Goddess of the night,
Bless me from the shadows light.
Banish now all trouble and fear,
Bring me happiness for all the year.
 

You will now want to bless the wine by holding your hands over the chalice or glass of wine as you say:

Let now the knowledge of the light,
Bring me wisdom and inner sight.
For all that was, has now passed away,
That new beginnings shall come my way.
 

In honor of Hecate, eat a portion of food and drink some of the wine. Take a few moments to reflect on the rite, and then extinguish the black candle as you say:

O glorious Hecate your are my power
Bless me my Lady from this hour.
 

To ensure that Hecate will bless you in the coming year, you must now take the remaining food and wine to the nearest crossroads and leave it. Place the food in the center of the crossroads and pour the wine over it. As you do this, ask Hecate to bless you. When you return home, clear the altar, and hang the Wheel of Hecate over your altar or bed.

Witchy Comments & Graphics

I invoke and welcome you
Element of the Earth
And honor your presence
With these symbols of your power
You who rule midnight, and winter, and the north
The body and all that grows
Bless my physical self
That I might be healthy and strong
And gift me with prosperity
That I too might grow and thrive
Ground and sustain me
With your solid presence under my feet
And watch over me as I walk my path.
 

So Mote It Be.

The Daily Motivator for Jan. 24th – Making adjustments

Making adjustments

Success is never achieved in a straight line. Although it’s great to  carefully put together workable, realistic plans, life doesn’t always go  according to plan.

Yet even when conditions change quickly and dramatically, success is still possible. To succeed in such a world as this, you must be willing to constantly adapt.

When something fails to go the way you planned, it’s not the end of the  world. In fact, things could eventually turn out to be even better than you  planned.

Regardless of what happens or fails to happen, you can choose to successfully  work it into your path forward. Instead of making judgments about what you  cannot control, make adjustments in those things you can control.

It might be nice if everything were to play out according to your plan, but  the thing is, it won’t. There will most certainly be surprises, so you might as  well find a way to make positive use of them.

Don’t give up on your goals or dreams just because things change. Adapt, make  adjustments, and make every turn of events move you forward.

Daily Motivator for August 12th – Go the distance

Go the distance

Though the road ahead is long and challenging, take the next step now. There  is much to be done, and you can get it done by making good use of every day, of  every moment.

When faced with a difficult task it’s natural to feel overwhelmed. The best  way to get past that feeling is not to give up, but to get busy and make some  solid progress.

Unexpected challenges will arise, obstacles will block your path, and it will  feel like the world is against you. When that happens, the key to feeling better  about your situation is to do something positive and proactive with it.

Remind yourself that in this moment all is well, because you are here and  able to make a difference. This moment is the sum of everything you have, so  choose to feel good about it and to do good with it.

To assure the best of what is to come, make the best of what is right now.  Instead of dreading what you imagine in the future, embrace and make positive  use of the reality of the present.

You can absolutely go the distance if you’ll take it one positive, productive  moment at a time. Live fully now, and you’ll be immensely thankful you did, for  a long time to come.

Good Old Folk Wisdom

Folk Wisdom

beside me either. Just pretty much leave me the hell
alone.
 
2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a
broken fan belt and a leaky tire.
 
3. It’s always darkest before dawn. So if you’re going
to steal your neighbor’s newspaper, that’s the time to
do it.
 
4. Don’t be irreplaceable. If you can’t be replaced,
you can’t be promoted.
 
5. No one is listening until you fart.

10. The most wasted day of all is one in which we
have not laughed.
 
11. If at first you don’t succeed, skydiving is not
for you.
 
12. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach
him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink
beer all day.
 
13. If you lend someone $20 and never see that person
again, it was probably worth it.

The Daily Motivator for January 7th – Valuable beyond calculation

Valuable beyond calculation

Your life is much too valuable to throw away any of it on negativity. Your  time is too precious to fill it with self-pity or anger or resentment.

Would you purposely sit around and set hundred dollar bills on fire? Of  course not. So don’t make the mistake of needlessly burning through your life,  which is vastly more valuable than money. Choose instead to live every day with  joy, love and meaningful purpose.

There’s no law that says you have to react negatively to negative situations.  Ultimately, the way you live is the way you choose to live.

So choose to live in harmony with your highest values. Instead of letting  mere circumstances determine how you are, let the beauty and value of your life  determine the way you act.

Your unique life is valuable beyond any calculation. Live like it is, and  make it even more so.
