11 Years and a Day

It was 11 Years ago this Month that I started practicing Wicca and oh what a ride it has been. Even though I Things e.g. Taoism to my Ritual and Practice, I still bring it all back down to Wicca: my Home. In fact, for most of these 11 Years, I have used the Rituals found in "Nocturnal Witchcraft" and "Gothic Grimoire" both by Konstantinos for my Rituals for New and Full Moons and Seasonal Festivals. I met my best Friend, Patron, while practicing a Wiccan Ritual 11 Years ago this Month. Patron… Continue

Words to the Wise

"Our base is the Divine Life of the universe. Our means of keeping in touch with it cannot be through any man-made dogma, but through nature, which man did not make. Men’s hands wrote all the holy books and sacred scriptures; only the book of nature was written by divinity."
—Doreen Valiente, Witchcraft for Tomorrow

Words to the Wise

"'Decide what is sacred to you, and put your best life energies at its service. Make that the focus of your studies, your work, the test for your pleasures and your relationships. Don't ever let fear or craving for security turn you aside.' When you serve your passion, when you are willing to risk yourself for something, your greatest creative energies are released. Hard work is required, but nothing is more joyful than work infused by love."
--Starhawk, The Spiral Dance

The kittens are here!

Hey all,

Around 8am Sunday morning the kittens came! Boots was a lot farther along than we thought. I worked the night before and my husband was home. She started clawing at the back door(she was a stray that started coming around, I talk about her and Bones in the blog titled Sunday) he let her in for awhile trying to keep her hidden from our two cats. Rukia is more aggressive towards other cats and Onyx is just extra cautious. They have only ever been around each other so we wanted…

In the mirror

Looking at myself in the mirror I say:

"Look at the life you live. Not what you thought it would be is it? So what are you gonna do? Get a divorce? Tough it out? Get over it? What? If I could go back I would tell you to do everything that you felt was right, even if you were wrong, you'd learn from it. Maybe I didn't learn enough."

Sunday

Hey everyone,

Wow it has been quite awhile since my last post! Last week we went on a trip to Paducah, KY. I post pics from that. Last night we opened our first bottle of wine that we brought home from the purple toad winery. It was a bottle of strawberry. We watched a few episodes of Breaking Bad, I love Bryan Cranston(hard to take him seriously in the show because I think of Hal from Malcom all the time :)) and had a glass of wine each after my dad left.

To begin our…

Words to the Wise

"W is for Wisdom, I is for Integrity, T is for Truth, C is for Courage, and H is for Honour. We are of a Higher Standard. A Standard that Honours all of humanity, all Her living creatures, and above all, one's self as the Goddess and God abide within."--HPs Lori Bruno, c. 1960s (via Vinnie)

Home

What is home? Is it a place you live? Some where you keep all of you material things.  Is it a place where your family is born and brought up? Somewhere you find your roots.  Or is it a place that is beyond space and object? Somewhere attached to the core of your Spirit.  A place that your energy calls to . . . feeds from.  A place you were born with power and strength and knowledge, but not exactly the place you were born in flesh.

I've never quite had a place to call home. …

Amnesia of the Spirit

From conception I was destined to do wonderful and great things. I was blessed with many gifts, gifts that I would never quite understand.  

My Home

Before birth I was gifted with Empathy and Sight.  I could feel, smell, and see my first home. The moment my mother stepped into the house that was to be ours I could see it from her eyes.  I could feel it with the touch of her hand and under our feet.  I could smell the acrid scent of smoke and ash.  There…

Post #1: Intro

Just like the title suggests, just intro-ing for now. What I would like to point out from the get go is that I do have a separate LiveJournal on which I will be posting pretty much the same thing I will be posting here from time to time. So as much as I want to point out what it is I will be posting, its not going to be much different if you read or have read my LJ.

That said, I will have more in the next post. Till then, later!

Enjoying summers bounty

Hey all its been a little while since my last post. But I want to talk today about summer food. Those of you who are members of spice goddess know that I have been cooking a lot of healthy garden recipes lately full of iron and other goodies. I am so thankful for the food that she (goddess) and he (god) provides. There is something magical about food from the earth isn't there? I have been cooking a Lot of zucchini, yellow squash, cucumbers, eggplant, tomato, corn and beans.

I have also… Continue

Reincarnation?

To explain the title, I must do a little backstory. To begin, history is my first love.

Ancient Egypt is of particular importance. One of my clearest childhood memories is an argument revolving around the most advanced ancient civilization. I advocated quite passionately for Ancient Egypt, citing the evidence I'd seen on museum trips and documentaries. Cleopatra was my idol - when my friends were sick from school, she was my was pretend companion on the black top.

As I've aged, other… Continue

Surprise!

  So, last week my husband and I found out we are expecting our second child! :)  We are excited but nervous at the same time because we are super broke but we'll make it through.  We always do.  First doctors appointment isn't until August 28th (three days after my classes start btw).  We are hoping for another boy, but of course we wouldn't be disappointed with a girl, lol. 

Anywho!  Just thought I'd share the good news :)  We haven't told the family yet, but everyone I work with…

Whoot!

Well, that worked out well. I retested the math section of the placement test and did so well that I'm now going directly into college algebra. lmao
Oye. I guess studying my buns off for the last 2 weeks paid off!

Who Is Flammeous {De Empress}?

It has recently came into my awareness, that I haven't put much out there on RP about me. I even went to check my blog entries, and YUP. I seemed to miss that part.



Growing up, the/a Lutheran church was like my 2nd family - just me attending, not so much my parents.  At least I had more pleasant experiences with people there at Church, than I did any where else. Outside from Church I had a really rough childhood.  I was bullied, picked on; an outcast with other children, in a…

On This Day July 23, 1892 - The First Hebrew Path To Obeah

This blog entry is tying into my previous blog The History of Obeah, in my quick attempt to explain more about "The First Hebrew Path to Obeah", that is mentioned at the link on that blog.  It also gives a little insight to the spiritual, Afro-centric path, of Rastafari, which I personally believe Obeah, and Christianization may have contributed to the path of Rastafari, but that's a whole other…

The History of Obeah

Since my husband (whose Jamaican), usually refers to me as Obeah.  I've been curious as to what that really is or means (aside from his quick definition of it).

 

So I've always been on the look out for any online information in regards to Obeah, and I can attest there hasn't been a whole lot of information online about it, as it is probably the most secretive and lesser known magikal practice around today.  Witchcraft is still illegal in Jamaica.  So, if you are in to that…

Pagan Obsession - Collecting & Hoarding

I admit it. I like to collect spells, magickal formulas, and herbal recipes (baths, incense, oils, powders). I'm sure I got a remedy to whatever ails ya. Magickally and medicinally. Some where around here.



Why?



Well, when I first went seeking, and not even necessarily 'The Craft'. I found myself even then, collecting spells and formulas, as if I was satisfying some obsessive compulsive disorder, like I had to collect them all like Pokemon. The more secretive and…

Settling In, news and tips.

Hey all,

This is my first post since we got moved. We are almost all unpacked but not quite done rearranging and figuring out where we want some of our furniture to go. We were blessed with the fact that the previous owners were moving into a small apartment and they left a lot of furniture for us: A dining room table with 6 chairs, china cabinet, a rocking chair, curio cabinet, entertainment center, small dining room table with 4 chairs, oven, refrigerator, washer, dryer, deep…
