    Intergalactic Shamanic Mystic Angel
    Dear Father: Here we acknowledge the Creator who gives Unconditional Love. If you believe that you are the result of an explosion or worse still that you created yourself, you are going to have a lot of trouble with this one. The word Father means "Giver Of Life" and I am sure you realise that it has nothing to do with bearded patriarchs. Addressing the Creator is fundamental to this process, since only the Creator can fix the mess that we (and our ancestors) have created. I am sorry This statement opens the door to atonement. The moment you take responsibility for any negative manifestation you experience or witness you also create an opportunity for healing. The apology is not directed to the Creator. The Creator is Spirit and does not need nor care about apologies. The apology is an acknowledgement that we are sorry for whatever it is that we (or our ancestors before us) have done to cause the adverse circumstance to take place. There is no need to grovel, just a simple "I am sorry" will do. Please forgive me We are asking for forgiveness for having forgotten how much the Creator loves us. We are asking for forgiveness for having shut out the Creator from our lives and missing out on all the wonderful experiences that we could have had. We ask for forgiveness with the absolute certainty that it has already been granted. The Creator is Spirit and is Unconditional Love, incapable of experiencing feelings of anger, resentment and all the other ego related neurotic behaviours that afflict humans. It is important to note here that Ho'oponopono practitioners never have to forgive anyone, since they realise that all wrongdoing is the result of their own wrong action or memories–past or present. I love you When Jesus was asked "which is the greatest commandments of them all" he surprised everyone (typical) and stated "You shall love the Lord Your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind." Love is a great healing power. Sending the Creator an SMS of love will reverberate through your psyche and generate an immediate feeling of well being. Once again being pure Spirit, the Creator, does not need your love, but the very act of thinking loving thoughts will tune your mind to that frequency with remarkable and immediate results. And I thank you As stated earlier, whatever your petition or concern, the moment you take responsibility for its occurrence and seek a way out–you are guaranteed a response. Almost invariably the response will never be what you expect (or in some cases want)–but what you need to start the process of healing or reconstruction. Your "thank you" is the acknowledgement that your petition has been heard and acted upon–that is all.

    A Modern Craft Fairy-Tale
    by Mike Nichols
    Once upon a time, there were two Witches. One was a Feminist Witch and the other was a Traditionalist Witch. And, although both of them were deeply religious, they had rather different ideas about what their religion meant. The Feminist Witch tended to believe that Witchcraft was a religion especially suited to women because the image of the Goddess was empowering and a strong weapon against patriarchal tyranny. And there was distrust in the heart of the Feminist Witch for the Traditionalist Witch because, from the Feminist perspective, the Traditionalist Witch seemed subversive and a threat to "the Cause".

    The Traditionalist Witch tended to believe that Witchcraft was a religion for both men and women because anything less would be divisive. And although the Goddess was worshipped, care was taken to give equal stress to the God-force in nature, the Horned One. And there was distrust in the heart of the Traditionalist Witch for the Feminist Witch because, from the Traditionalist viewpoint, the Feminist Witch seemed like a late-comer and a threat to "Tradition". These two Witches lived in the same community but each belonged to a different Coven, so they did not often run into one another. Strange to say, the few times they did meet, they felt an odd sort of mutual attraction, at least on the physical level. But both recognized the folly of this attraction, for their ideologies were worlds apart, and nothing, it seemed, could ever bridge them.

    Then one year the community decided to hold a Grand Coven, and all the Covens in the area were invited to attend. After the rituals, the singing, the magicks, the feasting, the poetry, and dancing were concluded, all retired to their tents and sleeping bags. All but these two. For they were troubled by their differences and couldn't sleep. They alone remained sitting by the campfire while all others around them dreamed. And before long, they began to talk about their differing views of the Goddess. And, since they were both relatively inexperienced Witches, they soon began to argue about what was the "true" image of the Goddess.

    "Describe your image of the Goddess to me," challenged the Feminist Witch. The Traditionalist Witch smiled, sighed, and said in a rapt voice, "She is the embodiment of all loveliness. The quintessence of feminine beauty. I picture her with silver-blond hair like moonlight, rich and thick, falling down around her soft shoulders. She has the voluptuous young body of a maiden in her prime, and her clothes are the most seductive, gossamer thin and clinging to her willowy frame. I see her dancing like a young elfin nymph in a moonlit glade, the dance of a temple priestess. And she calls to her lover, the Horned One, in a voice that is gentle and soft and sweet, and as musical as a silver bell frosted with ice. She is Aphrodite, goddess of sensual love. And her lover comes in answer to her call, for she is destined to become the Great Mother. That is how I see the Goddess."

    The Feminist Witch hooted with laughter and said, "Your Goddess is a Cosmic Barbie Doll! The Jungian archetype of a cheer-leader! She is all glitter and no substance. Where is her strength? Her power? I see the Goddess very differently. To me, she is the embodiment of strength and courage and wisdom. A living symbol of the collective power of women everywhere. I picture her with hair as black as a moonless night, cropped short for ease of care on the field of battle. She has the muscular body of a woman at the peak of health and fitness. And her clothes are the most practical and sensible, not slinky cocktail dresses. She does not paint her face or perfume her hair or shave her legs to please men's vanities. Nor does she do pornographic dances to attract a man to her. For when she calls to a male, in a voice that is strong and defiant, it will be to do battle with the repressive masculine ego. She is Artemis the huntress, and it is fatal for any man to cast a leering glance in her direction. For, although she may be the many-breasted Mother, she is also the dark Crone of wisdom, who destroys the old order. That is how I see the Goddess."

    Now the Traditionalist Witch hooted with laughter and said, "Your Goddess is the antithesis of all that is feminine! She is Yahweh hiding behind a feminine mask! Don't forget that it was his followers who burned Witches at the stake for the "sin" of having "painted faces". After all, Witches with their knowledge of herbs were the ones who developed the art of cosmetics. So what of beauty? What of love and desire?"

    And so the argument raged, until the sound of their voices awakened a Coven Elder who was sleeping nearby. The Elder looked from the Feminist Witch to the Traditionalist Witch and back again, saying nothing for a long moment. Then the Elder suggested that both Witches go into the woods apart from one another and there, by magick and meditation, that each seek a "true" vision of the Goddess. This they both agreed to do.

    After a time of invocations, there was a moment of perfect stillness. Then a glimmer of light could be seen in the forest, a light shaded deepest green by the dense foliage. Both Witches ran toward the source of the radiance. To their wonder and amazement, they discovered the Goddess had appeared in a clearing directly between them, so that neither Witch could see the other. And the Traditionalist Witch yelled "What did I tell you!" at the same instant the Feminist Witch yelled "You see, I was right!" and so neither Witch heard the other.

    To the Feminist Witch, the Goddess seemed to be a shining matrix of power and strength, with courage and energy flowing outward. The Goddess seemed to be holding out her arms to embrace the Feminist Witch, as a comrade in arms. To the Traditionalist Witch, the Goddess seemed to be the zenith of feminine beauty, lightly playing a harp and singing a siren song of seduction. Energy seemed to flow towards her. And she seemed to hold out her arms to the Traditionalist Witch, invitingly.

    From opposite sides of the clearing, the Witches ran toward the figure of the Goddess they both loved so well, desiring to be held in the ecstasy of that divine embrace. But just before they reached her, the apparition vanished. And the two Witches were startled to find themselves embracing each other.

    And then they both heard the voice of the Goddess. And, oddly enough, it sounded exactly the same to both of them. It sounded like laughter.

    The Center Point (Celtic)
    By: Airmid

    The methods that I use involve putting oneself in the center of the
    Three Realms, constructed as a triskele. The first is a movement
    meditation that I call "The Center Point." It involves both movement and
    a breathing pattern used to time the movement. Breathing is, ideally,
    timed to the heartbeat. Three each beat is one count. Breathing pattern
    is to inhale for 3, hold for 1, exhale for 3, hold for 1.

    Movement is slow, rhythmic and deliberate. Each movement has its own

    Start standing erect, arms relaxed at your sides.

    Close your eyes and relax. Clear your mind, concentrating on your
    breathing, and listening to your heart beat. Breathe in and out in the
    3-1-3-1 pattern three times as you allow yourself to relax.

    As you breathe in the fourth time, raise your hands from your sides and
    cover your heart with your palms, one over the other — you are at the
    center of the world.

    Exhale, moving smoothly to one knee, placing your palms on the ground in
    front of you — you stand firmly upon the Land.

    Inhale as you rise to your feet. As you stand, move your hands behind
    you as far back as you can comfortably reach at waist or hip height.
    Your hands should be cupped as though you are holding liquid.

    Breathe out, moving your hands in an arc around you until they meet in
    front of you at about the level of your navel — the Sea always
    surrounds you.

    Breathing in, move your hands back to your sides, holding them slightly
    away from your hips with your palms flat, facing forward and your
    fingers spread open.

    Exhale as you raise your arms above you in a smooth curve over your head
    until the tips of your thumbs and index fingers touch –the Sky spreads
    itself above you.

    Inhale again, lowering your hands in front of you until they are once
    again cupped over your heart — you are at the center of the Three

    Good morning everyone today my thoughts turn to “Silence” It’s only when we are truly silent can we hear the words of the inner self, the higher self and the divine. But in this modern age silence can be something difficult to achieve and we settle for stillness So today may the gods grant you a moment of perfect silence so you can hear the voices that call you, may you hear the full message and be guided to a brighter future Brightest Blessings Draco )o(/|\

    House Cleansing
    By: David Piper

    _Banishing And Sealing Ritual For The Home_

    To be performed during at the New Moon, but may be performed at any time
    in need.

    You will need a new white Candle (any size with holder), small bowls for
    Water and Salt, and a large bowl of water as well, and the censer and an
    appropriate incense. (Choose one that brings to your mind qualities you
    wish to have in your home.)

    Banishing Ritual:

    Meditate for a few moments on the task ahead; then make a brief
    invocation to the Goddess and the God, asking for Their Aid and Power in
    the Work you will do.

    Light the white candle in its holder, and charcoal in the censer (or an
    incense stick may be used instead).

    Consecrate Water and Salt in the usual way.

    Consecrate the water in the bowl in the same manner, but do not add
    Salt; place this bowl in the center of the room.

    Take the consecrated Water, elevate it to North, and say,

    "In the name of (Goddess) and (God)
    I banish with Water and Earth."

    Sprinkle the Water lightly widdershins around the perimeter of the room.

    Bless the incense, then elevate the censer (or incense stick) to North,
    and say,

    "In the name of (Goddess) and (God)
    I banish with Fire and Air."

    Cense the perimeter of the room widdershins.

    Take the Candle and cast a Banishing Earth Pentagram at North. (Draw
    the Pentagram with the censer or incense stick, starting from the bottom
    left point up to the top point, and so forth.) As you cast the
    Pentagram say,

    "With this Sign I banish ye, foul shades of the (Quarter)!
    Let this home be freed of your baneful influences!"

    Then go widdershins around the perimeter of the room, casting a
    Banishing Pentagram at each Quarter beginning at the West and ending
    back at North, repeating the above at each Quarter. (Do not repeat it
    again at North.)

    Now turn and face the center of the room, where the bowl of water sits.

    With your hands, draw any negative energy or vibrations remaining, and
    cast them into the water in the bowl by flicking or snapping your
    fingers at it. Repeat this action until you are satisfied the room is
    cleansed. Do not touch the water in the bowl, as it is being filled
    with the negative forces you are eliminating.

    Move the consecrated Water, the Salt, the Incense, the Candle, and
    the bowl of water (being careful not to spill it) into each room in
    your home and repeat this ritual.

    After banishing every room in the home (including bathroom, closets,
    pantry, etc.) you have finished. Empty the large bowl of water into
    running water (a sink or toilet will do). Wash the bowl thoroughly
    with cold water, scrubbing with some of the consecrated Salt.

    Sealing Ritual:

    Take all the Elemental substances used in the Banishing Ritual (Salt,
    consecrated Water, wax drippings from the Candle, and ashes from the
    Incense) and mix them into a paste.

    Using your forefinger, use the mixture to draw an Invoking Fire
    Pentagram at each opening leading outside the home (the doors and the
    windows – and even the water pipes, if you should feel the need) while
    concentrating on the Intention of protecting your home from outside
    influences. (Draw the Pentagram from the top point to the bottom right,
    and so forth. Form the Star so that it is point up, or point out, as
    appropriate.) You may make two Stars at each opening if you wish – one
    on the sill or threshold, and the other on the door or window itself.

    Remember that Intent is the key to success in this, as in all magickal
    operations; going through the motions without Will brings no results.

    Prayers to Brighid
    These are some prayers to Brighid that I adapted from prayers to the
    Irish Saint Brigid. Comments are welcome.


    This morning, as I kindle the flame upon my hearth, I pray that the
    flame of Brighid may burn in my soul, and the souls of all I meet today.

    I pray that no envy and malice, no hatred or fear, may smother the

    I pray that indifference and apathy, comtempt and pride, may not pour
    like cold water on the flame.

    Instead, may the spark of Brighid light the love in my soul, that it may
    burn brightly through the day.

    And may I warm those that are lonely, whose hearts are cold and
    lifeless, so that all may know the comfort of Brighid's love.
