An Intro to the Tenets, Virtues, Requirements for Magic, and Other Principles, Part 1

A gentleman over at WT posted a question about two codes of ethics in Wicca called the "7 Tenets of Faith" and the "8 Ethics of the Goddess." As my request to join WT was denied (their loss), I thought I'd respond to the young man's post here in my blog. There are, of course, more than two sets of codes; Doreen Valiente also mentions seven requirements for magic in Witchcraft for Tomorrow. But let's look at the Tenets first.

Returning my gift

Hey everyone,

Well I said I was going to get myself a laptop for the holidays. However, the laptop came and it was too small for me. So I decided to save money until my birthday and go to Best Buy and physically get myself a laptop for my birthday. It will be a b-day present to myself. So i'm thinking as a holiday present I will get Dr. Phil's new weight loss book. Maybe it will help me. My parents are depressing me about my weight. So anyway, that's it for now.

So I am creating a person

Hey all,

I found out a few weeks before thanksgiving that I was pregnant. So I wanted to take a little bit to talk about my pregnancy so far and an update on everything else.

We found a home for 2 of the kittens. Pepper and monarch went to the same home, with a girl I work with and her 4 year old daughter. She sends me pics and keeps us updated on how they are growing and doing. We kept Apollo. He also adjusted well. He plays with onyx. The kittens mom, boots is still missing. She… Continue

My Ultimate Gift to Myself

Hey everyone,

Well the other day I ordered a laptop from QVC as a holiday gift to myself. I am so looking forward to it because the one I have is about 4-5 years old. I'm supposed to be getting it next week. On top of that I have a lot of stuff I have yet to do to prepare for the holidays. I'm sending out cards today. Also I have to send out care packages for the soldiers I write to. I have scarves to finish for my nephew and brother-in-law. Just a lot of stuff to do. However, i'm…

Cunningham's Book of Shadow's

Hello everyone,

Yesterday I went out shopping and went to Books-a-Million (one of my favorite shopping places). One of my favorite hobbies is reading and collecting books. Well I hadn't bought a new age book in a while and I happened upon Cunningham's Book of Shadow's. I love Scott Cunningham's writings. He was one of the writers I first read. It is too bad that he died because we could have learned more from him. I'm not a Traditionalist like he was, but I can still learn from him. I…

Wicca.Life

In the last few weeks I've done a good job in daily life and as such I thought I would reward myself. The other night, I was sitting in front of my computer pondering over what I really want and what I need. I tend to go crazy with ideas and I love building website so I browsed on over to my web host to look for an interesting domain name. After about ten minutes of searching I thought why not just type in keywords for things I'm interested in. Wicca was the first keyword. I typed it in and…

Arianrhod

Arianrhod, Lady of the moon. Look over us, for we are your pitiful children. Keep us safe from harm. We invoke thee Arianrhod. Come to us during our time of need. Bless our new life, blessed is our new found love. Help our love grow. During this time of the waxing moon, I ask that you savour our love. Fill our hearts with the sweet compassion in which we so dearly need.

The Law Of Attraction Derailed

The Law Of Attraction Derailed

"The road to hell is paved with good intentions."

I'm sure we've all heard of this by now. It's the new thought, the latest catch phase. From Prentice Mulford Hicks. To the movie 'The Secret'. Pumped up by Oprah Winfrey and Larry King. Everyone knows this. From businesses, to mutual friends and family. To Christians, New Ager's, Witches and Pagans. It really needs no further explanation, because we all…

Empathetic Linkage

This may be just the basic fundamentals on the topic, but I just wanted to share my views and experiences with empathetic linkage (what happened, with whom, when, what I did, how I felt, and was affected).



But let me really begin this topic with an opening question.



What IS Empathetic Linkage?

Empathetic linkage happens when an Empath connects his/her mind to another person's mind.

This is not the ordinary feeling that most see get in regards to how we can feel… Continue

Unexplained Dreams

waking from a nightmare, not a pleasant way to sleep. All I remember was hiding in a back closet with bullets flying everywhere and being shot in the side of the head than I wake up. Glad to be AWAKE and ALIVE.

Creating a Wiccan Website

Hey everyone,

Sorry that I haven't updated lately. I hope everyone on the website is doing well. Well currently I am creating a Wiccan website based on my Facebook group and my blog. I am working on it and am hoping that it will be done by the middle of December. I plan to purchase a domain for the website. So I will see about doing that at the beginning of the new year. So I thought I would let you know.

A Plea for Healing

Hello everyone,

As you may or may not know, I have been having problems with my jaw. Ever since the beginning of November.. It started on the second, to be exact. I woke up in the middle of the night and the right side of my jaw had popped out of place and I could barely open my mouth (I was also in a lot of pain). I started to panic.. Not understanding what was happening, but it was late and I didn't want to bother anyone in my house, so I began to cry.. Finally I got the idea to just… Continue

What My Spirit Tells Me #3

I was in a discussion about "God" recently with someone and was explaining to them what my Spirit tells me about God and how God operates.

For example, we are a part of God...

"Well, that makes you God then doesn't it?"

Not necessarily, we are a small part of God.  God is the Universe, and we are a part of it.  That does not make us God itself.

"But surely if you are a part of God, then you are God."

Look, is a Cell a…
