Candle spell for new year’s eve

Candle spell for new year’s eve.

Although the (celtic-based) pagan new year is celebrated at Samhain in most cases. Celebrating the secular new year with ritual can be a great way to incorporate other new year’s traditions into one’s practice. This ritual’s purpose is to do away with what is hold, shedding oneself of the emotional regrets that bind us, and to be reborn into a happier state.…

A New Day   Sitting here early on the last morning of 2011, drinking my coffee and just thinking about what pops in my head , I started thinking about how we tend to compare everything , we compare this day with yesterday or the same day a year ago or 23 years ago on this date. I tend to compare my pain level today with yesterday, or last week or last year and I do the day and myself an injustice.  The weatherman compares today's weather with yesterdays, with a year ago, with the record…

Walking the Labyrinth Part 2

This lil blog is more of a speal on how much I adore the UU Church of Lancaster.  My eyes were opened a few months ago on how truly accepting the people there are...Enjoy!


Today was a special day.  One that I had been waiting for since the first weekend of November.  I was asked to help set up the Chartres Labyrinth for the annual New Years Walk they have every New Years Day.  I was thrilled that they wanted me to assist.  If you read my other blog on the walk, I was turn…

The Quest, The Rant, The Questioning of Universal Laws

The Quest

If your not familiar with The Universal Laws you can do a quick Google search and get plenty of sites listing apx. 10-20+ more Laws which apparently govern the universe. I would provide a link however I personally do not want to direct any traffic to any of these sites here on my blog.

Not until recently The Universal Laws have been passed off as some secret ancient…

Meditation #1

I become entranced with peace and calm Feeling my breathing slowing down,my minds eye opens and the viel opens as I continue to calmly breathe. I go to a quiet place. Colors of sepia,gold,greens and browns fill my senses with warmth and comfort I am relaxed in the surroundings. I am in a familiar place, I return to the field with tall cool grass, benieth my feet they gently lead and bid me to move forward,with every step the air is sweet an auroma that takes me back to the Center of…

Pagan riffs on "The Lord's Prayer"

Here's another one found in one of my notebooks that doesn't seem to have a life on the Internet at present.

This one is attributed to "Eilyan, 1995" and appears to be done in the style of the Christian "Lord's Prayer."

High and Holy Lady

Which art the Cosmos

Hallowed be Thy Names!

Thy Will be done

Throughout the

Astrals, the

Earth, and the


Illuminate us this day with the Holy Grail

And bless our…

Sacred Steps

Looking at which notebook this is in, I probably found this on a BBS back around 1993 or so. I don't know the author of it, and haven't had any luck finding a copy of it online. I am sharing it here so it won't be lost to time, even though it isn't something that resonates with me these days.


Sacred Steps



Swirling, tumbling wild



Trembling, awake, quick

The sacred web

Christmas Hangover

I don't know about you all, but I will be glad when the 'Holiday season' is over. I have a dinner to prepare today and then we get to eat left overs all week and then it is over!! I don't think I can stomach another Christmas show on the Halmark channel anymore. My Hubby has watched them all month and well last month too. He is a sucker for a happy ending. But all the Santa shows, enough already, there is just so many ways to re invent santa, how many ways can we make up how santa gets his…

The past few months there have been 8 crows that come and visit me every day. Around 7 or 8 in the morning I usually go outside with my dog and buddy Salem to walk around my yard and letting Salem do his business and get some exercise. Well most mornings the crows will be in my big Oak trees right outside my house and welcome me  with their calls and then fly around. What is strange is that in  previous years ,if they even saw me in the door they would fly off before I could get the door…

Greetings on  Christmas Eve, I was given the strangest gift/  sign very early in the  morning at 3 AM. I was turning on our gas fire place and in the front corner of the fireplace was a black feather,I believe it to be a crow feather. I know it was not there last night when I turned the fireplace off because I would have noticed it, where it was placed  was very obvious. So where did it come from? Who gave me a feather ? And in the fireplace of all places.There is no way from the chimney…

Celebrating Yule/Christmas Late

Ok so here is the situation. My family Celebrates Christmas and just last night was Yule but unfortunately I have to celebrate late with my boyfriend. My family wants him to celebrate with us because we feel he is already part of the family, where his family is the complete opposite. Even though we have been dating for 10 months they feel its too soon for me to be invited to family gatherings, even though I was invited to thanksgiving with them.


I don't know the whole story…

Tending of the Witchflame

This is something i wrote....sometime. Probably wrote it back in '06 or so, but just found it while cleaning out that big bin of misc. papers. Figured it would be a good Yule gift for you all. Enjoy!


From the land on which I walk

To the sky where spirit soars

Through the waters of life I call

I, of the witchflame, give my word.



Let my voice blend truth and love

Let my deeds be guided above

From my…

Church Style Incense

Before you get your undies in a knot about this incense being *church* style incense.  Let me start off by saying this is a xmas gift for a nearby hubby's friend/babysitter who watches my children when needed without payment (I know you want to have wanna those *friends* who would do that but sorry I can't help you there).  

Of course this friend (and family) has more of a christian bent.  That I chose a typical and common standby for them.  Basically frankincense and myrrh with a bit…

Why I believe in "Witch DNA"

Witch blood, hereditary witch, natural witch, witch DNA. Regardless of what you call it, the topic can raise the hackles of newcomers and oldsters alike. More often than not, profession of a belief that some people are born into witchcraft inclination is seen as the mark of fluff. As a person who, ideally, has a reputation for being pretty fluff-free, I'd like to come out and make a rather bold statement.

I believe in "Witch DNA".

Because that statement is likely to cause some…

Northern winds gather the ghosts of the past

whispering voices of darkness held fast

banished to regions where pain is thier own

those left behind a new freedom is known

life starts anew as we enter the dawn

never the same although nothing is wrong

worthy endevors inside find the key

a new day is born, so mote it be

Vientos del Norte reúnen a los fantasmas del pasado

susurrando voces de la oscuridad celebrado rápidos

desterrado a…
