I wanted to discuss today about the three parts of all of us. The first part of us is our spiritual part, which is represented by the upper 3 Chakras. Then there is the Ego part of us which is represented by the lower 3 Chakra’s. Now, the third part of us is the Heart.
Now, we have to choose everyday about what we are going to listen to…will it be the spiritual/heart part of us which is the “I AM” or the Ego part which is “I AM NOT”
Very important because the ego can and will ruin our lives if we let it take over and it will lead to devastation because it will lead to greed etc.
Thought this was the perfect time to let everybody think about this which to me is a very important decision for all of us.
I choose “I AM” but we each have the decision to make.
Today I picked from my Archangel Animal Deck by Diana Cooper. To me animals, are very important in our lives. The card pulled was “The Owl”
Owls are teachers so what is the message for us today…So this is just a reminder to watch the words that you speak to others. You could have a positive affect on the person or a negative one. Therefore, listen to your words as you speak. This could help somebody that is having a bad day. As you speak your vibration is raised so imagine how we can help others if we are speaking positive.
Merry Meet. Today is National Doctor’s Day and I want to ask for prayers for all the doctors, nurses, EMT’s, Paramedics, anybody in the health related field. The virus does not discriminate and these brave people are facing it everyday.
I was a EMT, paramedic, and a nurse years ago and it is very hard dealing with deaths. So, please today if you can please light a white candle and call upon Arch Angel Raphael and ask for the all medical personnel to be protect from this virus.
Today I wanted to just speak about faith. The world is undergoing a cleansing and I hope this wakes everybody up. I do feel that the destroying of Mother Earth is a main reason why this is happening. For example, here in Arizona we are fighting to protect Oak Flat. It’s a very sacred place especially for the Apache People. The mines are trying to take it and destroy it by mining.
Oak Flat is a very sacred place that will be destroyed if we cant stop it. The Apache people are trying to stop it but we are waiting to find out.
Keep your faith with whats happening in this world. The virus, the destroying of Sacred Sites, and harming Mother Earth. I know it will be hard but pray and know that the Creator is with you.
The Scots Pine is a tree that we get great versatility from. It brings clarity, adaptability, and creativeness. But its main focus is to bring inspiration to follow our own path. The Pine brings forth saying “take responsibility for your actions” You are here to serve a higher purpose.
When the Pine is left our of our lives, we no longer can confront any issues in our life. So then what enters: confusion, fear, timid.
So, this card fits perfect for what is going on in this world. Remember, to be you and bring some Pine into your life. Go with what is inside you.
YouTube.com has surprisingly some very good pagan songs and other videos. This is one channel I have brought you song from in the past and wanted to share the entire channel with you in the hopes you will find a favorite and email me the name and link for it along with whatever name you want to use for me to give credit to you for finding it. Also a short or long story of why the song called to you. Even if it is a song I have previously posted it does not matter because the reason it calls to me will be different then why it calls to you.
If you have written a poem or pagan song and would like to share it with us I will make sure to put your copyright date up with the name it is copyrighted under.
So recap: Link and Title of the Song
A short or long story of why the Song touched or called to you. Your story can be one line up to however long you want to make it.
Name for me to give credit to for sharing the Song with our community.
I want to start including posts from our brothers and sisters who usually just read whatever we put up. We are a community that showed love, compassion, and togetherness when we saved this website and domain name. Now let us be more than me and the council of elders posting and all of you just reading.
Let’s show Lady Abyss how she was loved and honored for making this website possible in the first place in the 1990’s when to be a witch or pagan we had to keep it to ourselves or within our family and/or coven. Witches of The Craft with Lady Abyss at the helm was one of the few pioneers on the world wide web that was brave enough to speak up and out about real witchcraft not the type you see in movies or on TV or read fictional stories about. She got death threats weekly in the beginning which did taper off as other metaphysical and witchcraft websites started showing up on the world wide web but even a week before she crossed to the Summerlands she called to warn me that she had gotten an email threatening everyone who was part of WOTC. A couple of years ago ISIS, the radical group not the Goddess, threaten to cut off her head and display it for all the world to see what would happen to infidels. Did she run and hide NO instead she kept right on bring us new and interesting information from many different traditions of witchcraft. Then she found out that in the spring or summer of 2018 that members of ISIS were literally in the next county over from her. Did she run and hide then? NO she kept on keeping on with her website that she had put so many years and tears into. I will let you in on a secret that since she is not hear to tell me off for saying this, the real reason Lady Abyss sold WOTC was because every day after she was back in her cabin after it had been burnt to the ground by an arsonist all she felt was negativity come from the readers of WOTC and she felt most of you wanted her gone from here. I took WOTC over because I was grateful usually that Lady Abyss talked me into starting my own website COven Life it took her a while and a joke between us was that she twisted so hard it almost broke. I didn’t want to come out of my Solitary practice to take up the mantel of High Priestess to a coven and a mentor to new witches by opening a witchcraft school even though they were both online. I was perfectly happy posting on WOTC and I remember fighting tooth and nail until I just gave up and gave in to Lady A’s vision for me. NOw I’m the owner of 2 websites, a witchcraft school, online coven, and love it. SO yes, A you were right to push me years ago. So again I ask you to please email me any type of contribution you want to make as part of the WOTC and CL community, not with money but with words, songs, a joke, whatever you feel like submitting as long as it is not erotica which could get this site thrown off of WordPress and believe me that’s the last thing I want to see happen after we all worked so hard to save this legacy of a wonderful, kind, beautiful, and giving woman. Take a minute to think where you might be on your own path if not for these websites and Lady Abyss than raise your cup or glass high and thank her. Blessed be my sisters and brothers of the WOTC and CL community.
Email whatever to me at WitchesCovenHearts@yahoo.com Please put For Posting in the email Subject Line. Thank you
Witchcraft today is going strong. Most people think if you are practicing witchcraft is has to be evil when in truth its actually how you practice it.
I am firm believer in practicing witchcraft and practice it in the light. I know most people get scared and walk away from you. Well, that has happened to me since I have begun this journey. I am also a spiritual medium and I have lost so called friends from finding that out.
Do I care? No, they didn’t deserve me in their life. Witchcraft and mediumship is very important to me. I live my life the way I want to and I don’t need anyone’s approval for that. Accept me as I am or I don’t or need you in my life.
So, has this happened to you? I am sure it has but you know what don’t let it get you down. Just keep going and hold your head up.
I am moving along with my Novice lessons and I wrote my first spell and Ritual and I must say I have never been so excited.
I am a published author and when I sat down to write my spell and ritual I thought “Oh gosh this will probably be hard.” But I sat down with confidence and wrote them both within an hour. It was amazing.
I want to say that I love this coven and everybody in it. Lady B is amazing and always there for me and Priestess Hypatia is also amazing. I just want thank the Coven for being there for me.
This is my path. I feel so connected now and its bring the best out of me. So thank you Coven Life and Witches of the Craft for allowing me to be me.
Happy New Year’s. I thought one of the best things for the new year is mantras. So, what are mantras? Mantras are repeating of words or sounds that is used to penetrate our unconscious mind. Usually they are chanting loudly but you can also say them silently or even listen to them.
So mantra for 2020 that I picked to post today is: “Believe in yourself, have faith, and remember you are important.”
Hope you practice this mantra to help you realize that you are one with the Universe and the 2020 is the year for change and you are the change.
There are different types of witches so do you know which one you are? I feel its important to define what a “witch” is. To me, its somebody that practices witchcraft. With that being said, I don’t feel that you have to follow any certain religion to be a witch or practice witchcraft.
I will not go over all witch types here but the ones I feel is mostly used.
Solitary Witch is someone who is not in a coven and practices rituals and spells alone. They either prefer not to join a coven or maybe its because they do not have one that resonates with them. They can use different paths and may or may not use witchcraft as part of their spiritual path.
Traditional Witch is a someone who takes the historical route. They look at various ways such as witch trials, grimoires, historical accounts, and witch lore. This is how they lay their foundation for doing their spell work or rituals.
Hereditary Witch is someone that is born into a family that practices witchcraft. Knowledge is passed down through generations and each one may practice in their own way.
Eclectic Witch is someone who takes different ways from different witchcraft traditions, rituals, etc.
Hedge Witch is someone that works with subtle spaces and the spirit world. A Hedge witch works with the liminal spaces and the spirit realm.
Kitchen Witch is someone uses their home and surroundings as their sacred space. They focus on their food and cooking by putting energy into each meal. They may have their own herb garden.
Green Witch is someone that are nature based. They are usually in-tune with each season and use natural material to create their own tools. They usually perform spell work or rituals outside.
Cosmic Witch is someone that uses astrology in their witchcraft. They follow the alignment of the planets and usually they perform their spells and rituals based on the position of the planets and moon.
Now, I will share what I do. I am Hereditary Witch, but I am also an Eclectic Witch and a Hedge Witch. I incorporate many different things, especially Native American.

The full moon is the point at which we can see an entire side of the moon. For magical purposes, most Wiccans and Pagans consider the full moon to include the day before and the day after a full moon, for a total of three days. If your tradition requires you to follow the phases of the moon for your magical workings, this is a good time to do rituals focused on personal growth and spiritual development.
Some examples would include:
Spells related to increasing your intuitive awareness
Rituals that connect you closely with deity, such as Drawing Down the Moon
Any magic related to developing your magical skills
For many Wiccans and Pagans, this is also a time to celebrate with an Esbat ritual.
Willow and her coven celebrated the full moon with a ritual to hone their intuitive abilities.
