You Are Invited

We are calling the Grandmothers,
Mothers, Sisters, Aunts, Daughters
The wild women
The crones
The seers and midwives
The mountain and desert women
The soul summoners
The water carriers
The tenders and feelers of Earth
The ocean women who are rising the tide
The fire women who are ready to roar
The girls who already breathe consciously with the trees and the Elders who choose
to sing the song that ends the
desecration of our world -
We are calling you to rise together now -
You are invited - to unite and waken
to who and what you really are,
on behalf of the forests, on behalf of the
trees, on behalf of Life.”

Mabon Blessing

 Mabon Blessing

Goddess we thank you
For the bounties of spring and summer 
For the powers of creation, 
which challenge us and 
fill us with breathtaking awe.
Goddess we thank You!
For the earth with its sunrises and sunsets, ocean tides and mountain peaks,
For the Humanity, our shared pasts and futures, 
our oneness despite all differences.
Goddess we thank You!
For our hopes and dreams, noble causes and understanding of views not shared,
For all who have worked and 
fought for a fairer universe and 
a life of dignity and freedom.
Goddess we thank You!
For the opportunity to learn and grow, 
the knowledge to teach and make choices,
For the wisdom to live by hope and 
not fear, and by our deeds not our words.
Goddess, we thank You!
For all that we have overlooked and 
taken for granted in the our daily life,
For being, and letting us be blessed by that being.
Goddess, mighty and powerful, tender and charitable, we most gratefully thank You now!

Autumn Equinox Blessings

 Autumn Equinox Blessings. 

A Spell For Peace & Happiness

A little magick for your home is a good practice. While browsing through my Book of Soells, I found this. All the items needed are common kitchen herbs and spices. The others items needed are easily found and you may very well have them in your home.

I have cast this spell many times over the years and suggested its use by others with much success. Everyone can use a little extra peace and happiness in the home, don’t you think?

A Spell For Peace And Happiness In The Home

Perform this spell after the first crescent of the new moon appears. Energetically cleanse your home in whatever manner you usually do.

You will need;

an orange or Happy Home* candle

lavender buds, rose petals, wood betony, Rosemary, cumin seeds and cinnamon. 

three drops each of bergamot, clove and vanilla oils (a teaspoon of pure vanilla extract may be used instead of vanilla oil) plus a touch extra for candle anointing. 

Matches or lighter

A pink, lavender colored, or white pouch

Candle holder

A bit of glitter if you have some

Some rose quartz piece to surround your candle and pouch.

Mix herbs and oils together well and enchant in the usual manner. Place the mixture into a  small pouch. Keep this with the candle as it burns. You will then place it in a closet, cupboard, or somewhere around the home, hidden from view.

If you are using a plain orange candle, anoint with a touch of each oil, and sprinkle with a tiny pinch of glitter, enchanting for purpose If using the Happy Home candle, you may anoint with a bit of oil and add some glitter, then awaken and ask for the candle’s assistance for your purpose.

Place the candle in its hold, pouch nearby, and surround with pieces of rose quartz.

Burn the candle for three hours each evening until it is completely consumed. Chant this charm three times after lighting:

Peace and happiness fill our place,                                All is well in our family’s space!

Any candle remnants may be added to you pouch.

(Both Crystal Journey and Coventry Candles make lovely Happy Home candles)

Cleansing Prayer

Wrote this Tuesday morning and thought I’d share. Beautiful blessings dark and deep.

Cleansing Prayer 

Smoke and fire, Earth and air,
Cleanse and bless this home with care.
In the Lady’s name I make it so,
All harm and bane released must go.
By the Lady Mother that I revere,
Only good now enters here.
With gratitude I freely send
To my Lady without end.

You Are Becoming You

 I took a bit of poetic license with this so I would be talking to the Goddess.

Me: Hey Goddess.

Goddess : Hello.....

Me: I'm falling apart. Can you put me back together?

Goddess: I would rather not.

Me: Why?

God: Because you aren't a puzzle.

Me: What about all of the pieces of my life that are falling down onto the ground?

Goddess : Let them stay there for a while. They fell off for a reason. Take some time and decide if you need any of those pieces back.

Me: You don't understand! I'm breaking down!

Goddess : No - you don't understand. You are breaking through. What you are feeling are just growing pains. You are shedding the things and the people in your life that are holding you back. You aren't falling apart. You are falling into place. Relax. Take some deep breaths and allow those things you don't need anymore to fall off of you. Quit holding onto the pieces that don't fit you anymore. Let them fall off. Let them go.

Me: Once I start doing that, what will be left of me?

Goddess : Only the very best pieces of you.

Me: I'm scared of changing.

Goddess : I keep telling you - YOU AREN'T CHANGING!! YOU ARE BECOMING!

Me: Becoming who?

Goddess : Becoming who I created you to be! A person of light and love and charity and hope and courage and joy and mercy and grace and compassion. I made you for more than the shallow pieces you have decided to adorn yourself with that you cling to with such greed and fear. Let those things fall off of you. I love you! Don't change! ... Become! Become! Become who I made you to be. I'm going to keep telling you this until you remember it.

Me: There goes another piece.

Goddess : Yep. Let it be.

Me: So ... I'm not broken?

Goddess: Of course Not! - but you are breaking like the dawn. It's a new day. Become!!!

Thinking of the Crone

Good morning! I am awake early this morning and thinking about being a crone and the Divine Crone. When did this happen, that I have reached this age… and with so much to do still? Aging can be frightening, but more than that it is glorious. Personally, I have been able to let go of things that made me miserable but now I know were really not important. So I embrace my age and love this body and mind and soul - ah, there’s the one, my soul! I am aware of my inner self, my deep heart, my divine essence. I strongly feel and know them. That feels good and right so I better get busy with all those things I still have to do! First, some prayers, a candle and incense to light, my morning devotions, at this time of the year, honoring the Divine Crone.

Blessings dark and deep! 

Calling the Crone

Midnight Mother, Queen of Dreams,

Who in the dark of the moon beseems

The Lady of Phantoms and the Dead,

Dispenser of visions of love and dread.

Mistress of magic and arts arcane,

Lady of Karma who justice ordains,

Come to me now! Come to my call!

Queen of Darkness and Spirits all.

Weaver of the celestial web

and author of fortunes flow and ebb,

Bless me with magical power bright,

grant me the knowledge of spiritual things

and power that spiritual knowledge brings.

To work my will and make manifest,

all the things that my heart loves the best.

Great Crone, Grandmother of All That Is,

Now bless me moreover in more than this.

Share the wisdom of Your sacred heart

as well as the skill of Your magical art,

That I may be mindful in all that I do

and be wise in magical workings too.

A Daily Prayer

 Good Sunday morning and many blessings. I am struggling a bit with shingles - gotta love the Crone years. However, I am doing well for the most part, but this morning I am having a bit of a flare up. 

To take my mind off it, I went browsing the internet and found a little prayer to the Universe. This inspired a daily short prayer to the Mother Goddesses. I am a firm believer in daily devotions, even just little ones. So I share it here.

Light a candle, perhaps a stick of incense, and recite three times.

A Daily Prayer

Oh Blessed Mothers I come to You,

With honor and love, blessings too.

Give me strength to face my day

Whatever it is that comes my way.

With love I open to what may be,

I light this flame’s power times three.

As Your loving blessings always assist me,

So I shall be the best I can be.

With honor and love, blessings too,

With strength from the Great Mothers,

It is made true.
