The Witches Magick for Wednesday, May 24th - Sewing Needle Ritual For Protection

May 24, 2017 @ 6:35 pm

                           Old-Book-of-Shadows.jpg

Sewing Needle Ritual For Protection

 

Items You Will Need:
A sewing needle
A reel of white thread
Sea salt

 

Fill a glass on half with cold water, add to water three spoons of salt and cut off from the reel about yard of the white thread. Put this thread into the glass with salty water and make the three sign of the pentagram over it. When the thread has become wet, get it from water and to thread the needle.

 

 

Tie together the ends of the thread with a triple knot. Take the needle in the right hand, touch a door hinge on your front door with the needlepoint and move it so along all length of the door hinge . Start this movement on a side of the top door hinge. If the hinge at the left side of the door, move from left to right, then downward, from right to left and upward to the same hinge. If the hinge at the right side of the door, move the needle downward, from right to left, then upward and from left to right. All time the needlepoint touches the hinge with light press. Having finished this action, stick the needle in the top corner of the doorjamb above the hinge, and say:

 

 

The needle as a steel lance,
Stab up all enemies and foes,
Ward off all disasters.

 

 

Thus you receive “lightning conductor” for neutralization of directed on you and on your home negative energy. This protection works approximately one year, after the expiration of it, you must replace the needle and the thread. Uttering the protective incantation, cautiously remove the needle from the door hinge:

 

Black to black,
white to white,
Dead to dead,
and alive to alive.

 

At once after that, go to a lonely place, and bury the needle with the thread in a ground.
If you suspect that on you and on your family are attracting negative or evil influences, replace the needle more often — once a month or once a week. But in all case do it on Friday evening.

O Sweet Dark Mother of the Night,
please turn your sympathy toward us
and send us your deep healing.

Lady, let your glimmering Moon

Please bring your fiery torches
as we walk beside you in the night time;
teach us more understanding.

Enfold us with the strength of your love;

Our Thoughts & Prayers Are With Those in Manchester

May 24, 2017 @ 11:28 am

                                        

We can shed tears over the loss of our loved ones
or we can smile because they lived even though time with us seemed so short.

 

We can close our eyes and pray they will come back
unfortunately with our all prayers we know deep in our hearts
that can never happen.

 

Our hearts are empty and ache for just one more glimpse,
one more moment, one more second with our loved ones
that have been taken so suddenly from us.

 

Each of us experience loss and grief sometime during our life
we each experience differently
Whether for a parent who has lost a child or
For a child who has lost a mother or father

 

When it is all said and done we have their memories
in our hearts and our minds and we must cherish those
memories for as long as we have them,
in our hearts & our memories they will live on.

 

Almighty Goddess, bless the people of Manchester
during this trying time of sorrow, grief, loss, and confusion.
Open Your loving arms and embrace those who have passed on
Bless those they left behind
Help them through this difficult time.

 

Even though their hearts are broken
Let them remember Your promise to us all,
One day, we shall meet again.

 

Until that day, keep a loving watch over them
When times are at there worse
remind them of what their loved ones
would want them to do

 

Continue to life, continue to love but
never, ever forget
These three things will be the greatest
memorial to their loved one’s lost life.

 

Grant them peace, comfort and healing, Almighty Mother.
In your divine name, we pray.

So Mote It Be

 

—Lady of the Abyss

Witch’s Charge

May 22, 2017 @ 8:26 pm

                        covenlife.jpg

 

Witch's Charge

 

Hear now the words of the witches,
The secrets we hid in the night,
When dark was our destiny's pathway,
That now we bring forth into the light.

 

Mysterious Water and Fire,
The Earth and the far-reaching Air,
By hidden quintessence we know them,
And will keep silent and dare.
The birth and rebirth of all nature,
The passing of winter and spring,
We share with the life universal,
Rejoice in the magcial ring.

 

Four times in the year the Great Sabbat
Returns, and the witches are seen
At Lammas and Candlemas dancing,
On May Eve and old Hallowe'en.
And when day time and night time are equal,
When sun is at greatest and least,
The four lesser Sabbats are summoned,
Again witches gather in feast.

 

Thirteen silver moons in a year are,
Thirteen is the coven's array.
Thirteen times at Esbat make merry,
For each golden year and a day.

 

The power was passed down the ages,
Each time between woman and man,
Each century unto the other,
Ere time and ages began.
When drawn is the magical circle,
By sword or athame of power,
It's compass between the two worlds lies
In the land of shades that hour.
This world has no right to know it,
And the world beyond will tell naught.
The oldest of gods are invoked there,
The Great Work of Magic is wrought.

 

For two are the mystical pillars,
That stand at the gate of the shrine,
And two are the power of nature,
The forms and the forces of the divine.
The dark and the light in succession,
The opposites each unto each,
Shown forth as a God and a Goddess:
This did our ancestors teach.

 

By night he's the wild wind's rider,
The Horned One, the Lord of the Shades.
By day he's the King of the Woodland,
The dweller in green forest glades.

 

The bright silver lady of midnight,
The crone who weaves spells in the dark.
She is youthful or old as she pleases,
She sails the torn clouds in her barque,

 

The master and mistress of magic,
They dwell in the deeps of the mind,
Immortal and ever renewing,
With power to free or to bind.

 

So drink the good wine to the Old Gods,
And dance and make love in their praise,
Till the Summerland shall receive us
In peace at the end of our days.
And Do What Thou Wilt
Shall be the challenge,
So be it in love that harms none,
For this is the only commandment,
By magic of old, be it done!

 

Eight words the Witches Creed fulfull:
It if Harms None, Do What Thou Will!

The Witches Magick for Monday, May 22nd - Honey Jar & Candle Spell

May 22, 2017 @ 8:16 pm

 

The Witches Magick for Monday, May 22nd - Honey Jar & Candle Spell

 

This magic spell can be worked on anyone’s name you want to sweeten. Depending on what relationship the person has to you, what special items you put into the name-packet, the colour of candle you choose, and the oil you dress it with, this trick will cause the person you name to like you more, to love you more, to favour your petition, to want to help you, to be sympathetic to your cause, or to forgive any wrongs you have committed. It can be used to influence and sweeten a judge in a court case, a loan officer at the bank, a boss from whom you want a raise, a teacher in your school from whom you want a good grade, a lover with whom you want a reconciliation, an in-law who has been back-biting you, or friend who has cut you off because of a foolish quarrel.

 

The following ingredients are needed
a jar of sweetener (see below)
a piece of paper
a pen
optional herbs, curios, and/or bodily concerns (see below)
a candle (choose the appropriate colour at the candle magic page)
a candle-dressing oil such as Special Oil No. 20 or Love Me oil

 

Get a small jar of sweetener. This can be honey, Karo Syrup, Crystal Syrup, home-made brown sugar syrup, Log Cabin Syrup, Vermont maple syrup, Bre’r Rabbit Blackstrap Molasses or whatever you desire — as long as it is in a container with a metal lid. You can buy the goods in a pint-size glass Mason jar or pour the sweetening of your choice into a jar of your own at home. All that matters is that it should be a short, squat jar with a metal lid, filled up to the shoulder of the jar.

 

In the old days, when skin colour was a lot more important to people than it is now, it was recommended that the colour of the sweetener match the skin of the person you wanted to sweeten. Thus, for a white judge, you might use Crystal Syrup, and for a Latino loan officer you might use light brown sugar syrup, and for a dark-skinned lover you might use Bre’r Rabbit Blackstrap Molasses. Frankly, these days specifying a person’s skin colour is not as meaningful as it once was (for which we can all be thankful), and today many folks prefer to use honey for the spell, no matter what the target’s skin colour is, because it is a natural sweetener and not man-made. I believe that if you just follow your own intuition and decide which sweetener you like the best, you can be confident that you have made the right choice.

 

Next, prepare your paper. Again, in the old days, we would be told to use white paper for a white person, tan paper for a high-brown, and rough old grocery-bag paper for a person of dark colour, but these days the type of paper you use can simply be a matter of personal style. I use the smooth, tan-coloured light-weight shopping bag paper because that is my choice, based on the way i was taught, which was that such paper is “pure paper” and better than parchment from the art-supply store. I prepare my paper by tearing it neatly on all four sides so there is no machine-cut edge. Of course some folks prefer parchment paper more, and they trim it square with scissors — and the spell still works for them. So go ahead and prepare your paper just as you wish and that will suffice.

 

Once you have got your paper together, write the person’s name three times on it, one name under the other like so

 

John Russell Brown

John Russell Brown

John Russell Brown

 

Then you rotate the paper 90 degrees and write your own name across the person’s name, also three times:

 

Abigail Samantha Little

Abigail Samantha Little

Abigail Samantha Little

 

The result will be that the two names are crossed over each other, like a cross or a tic-tac-toe grid, and the other person’s name will be under yours. This is called crossing and covering their name. If the sweetening is being done for love, you can use a red ink pen. Otherwise, the colour of the ink does not matter. Now all around the crossed names, write your specific wish in a circle. If you need a guideline, lightly sketch the circle-shape with a pencil and then follow around it when writing with your ink pen. You must write your wish in one continuous run of script letters, with no spaces — AND WITHOUT LIFTING YOUR PEN FROM THE PAPER. Do not cross your t’s or dot your i’s. Just write the words in one run and be sure to join up the end of the last word with the beginning of the first word so the circle is complete. Then you can go back and cross your t’s and dot your i’s. To make it easy to connect the word together at the end, i have found it best to make my petition in the form of short commands, such as “help me favour me help me favour me” or “love me love me love me” or “forgive me come back forgive me come back.”

 

If you make a mistake — for instance, if you lift your pen in the middle of writing your petition-circle — throw away the paper and start it all over again. You want it to be perfect.

 

Other ingredients can be added to the name-paper if you wish — a piece of court case root for a court case spell, two rose petals for a love spell, a lump of sugar for a family member, two clove buds for friendship, bayberry root or sassafras root for a money spell, a pair of Adam-and-Eve roots for love, two small Lodestones for sexuality, a pinch of deer’s tongue leaves for a proposal of marriage, a square of camphor for cleaning out bad things of the past, and so forth.

 

If you are sweetening someone for love, then in addition to the name-paper and whatever optional herbs, roots, or minerals you choose, you must also get one of the person’s hairs and one of your hairs. If the hairs are long enough, tie them together. Otherwise, just lay them crosswise to each other. In either case, place them on the name-paper. Don’t ask me what to do if you can’t get their hairs ’cause i can’t help with that. Either work the spell without the hairs and expect a much lower rate of success or get the hairs! Don’t load the paper up with lots of other stuff thinking that if you can’t get the hairs that six different love-herbs and two lodestones will be as strong as two hairs. They won’t be.

 

Fold the paper toward you to bring what you want your way and speak aloud your wish as you do so. Turn the paper and fold it again, and again, always folding toward you, to bring what you want your way. Speak aloud your wish each time you fold the paper toward you. Fold it until it will not fold any more.

 

Open the jar of honey or syrup. To make room for the folded paper packet, you will need to eat some of the contents. Take out a spoon’s worth, and as you eat it, say, “As this honey [or syrup] is sweet to me, so will i become sweet to John Russell Brown [or the name of the person you are working this on].” You can do this three times — taking out three small spoonsful of sweetener and speaking your wish aloud each time. Push the folded paper packet down into the jar and close up the lid.

 

Dress an offertory candle (a 50 cent, 6″ long candle or a 25 cent 4″ long one, nothing fancy) with an appropriate anointing oil, or use Special Oil No. 20, which is specifically indicated in this type of spell. Use a white candle for general blessing and healing, a red one for sexual love, a pink one for reconciliation, a brown one for a court case, and so forth. (For a longer list of colour symbolism, see the page on candle magic.)

 

Stand the candle on the lid of the closed-up jar and light it. You can melt the candle to the lid with hot wax if need be.

 

Let the candle burn all the way out. Do this every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, for as long as it takes. Add teach new candle on top of the remains of the last one. I have seen people’s syrup-jar spells like this done for court cases that were continued for so long and required so many candles that you could not see the jar under all the dripped-on wax!
