    Many years ago I began development on a system of magic called symbol magic. The premise behind it involved the origins of such designs as tribal tattoos and what their meanings were. As I started to lay the groundwork for such a system a good friend introduced me to a very similar magic that alread…

    Kitchen Witchery
    Garlic and superstition have gone hand in hand for millennia. A tasty, natural curative –garlic’s power as a magickal protective charm and as a potent remedy has remained strong from ancient times through to the present day.

    Worried about vampires? No problem. Carry some garlic and decorate your doors and windows with it. The use of garlic to protect against these pop culture prevalent denizens of the night is perhaps the most ubiquitous use of the aromatic bulb known today.

    But its usage as a form of apotropaic or warding magick is far more ancient. The ancient Egyptians would utilize it to protect the sanctity of contracts and oaths. Medieval miners would carry it down to the mines with them to ward against evil spirits like the invisible and mischevious German kobolds. The pungent odor and easily portable bulb and cloves of the garlic plant ( allium sativum) made and, indeed, still make it, an ideal charm against evil in all of its multiple forms. Its Sanskrit name Rasona or Lasuona actually means ‘Slayer of Monsters.’ But not all of the monsters it protected against were of the fiendish variety. More often then not, it was the monstrous interior medical ills that garlic was utilized to protect against.

    The second century AD Roman physician Galen of Pergamon labeled garlic as a ‘theriac’ or antidote which eventually translated into its widespread usage in imperial Roman medicine as a universal panacea or curative. In Ayurvedic medicine, one of the earliest ongoing systems of homeopathic curatives, garlic was utilized as an aphrodisiac, stimulant, and charm against virulent diseases like smallpox. Indeed, the sulfur and selenium components within the garlic bulb which presumably originated as a defense mechanism against hungry predatory animals result in garlic’s scientifically recognized properties as a valuable antiseptic, which does indeed aid in protecting against bacteria, inflammation, and viruses. Recent studies indicate that the consumption of garlic may help prevent against certain types of cancer. Garlic was recognized early on for its curative powers, but we are only just exploring the tip of the iceberg of what its wonderful biological magick can do for our own biological systems.

    Biomagick aside, my particular favorite fact in the litany of garlic’s history (some of which is included above and others of which you will encounter in Sacred Mists fabulous Herbalist Course ) relates to its ritual usage. Garlic was once the primary offering to the great Greek goddess of magick herself: the mighty Hekate. The third century BCE philosopher Theophrastus recorded in his botanical texts Enquiry into Plants and On the Causes of Plants how garlic would be offered at crossroads and in front of the three-faced statues dedicated to Hekate found at such places.

    SO the next time you throw a bit of delicious garlic into your cooking, take a second to speculate about the long legacy of interaction between garlic and humankind. For at least five thousand years men and women have consumed this tasty plant and utilized it in their magico-medicine practices. It is a tradition of tastiness and superstition predating biological scientific fact, one which you are continuing by adding it into your daily diet.

    The subconscious mind is where you hold deep-seeded beliefs about yourself, including whether you see yourself as talented or untalented, intelligent or unintelligent, successful or unsuccessful, deserving of love or undeserving or love… These deep-seeded beliefs about yourself are the result of all of your life's experiences, including your childhood experiences…
    This is important, because as adults, we often hold many negative self-concepts and beliefs in our subconscious minds that were developed on our childhood years. Children often have cruel things said to them, and these things are easily implanted into the subconscious mind of a child, and often remain there for life.
    You're Fat
    You're Ugly
    You're Stupid
    You're Lazy
    You can't do anything right
    When statements like these are said to a child repeatedly and with emotion, these negative beliefs are easily programmed deeply into the child's unconscious mind.
    It's not just childhood experiences that can negatively affect your subconscious… Regardless of when the negative programming occurs, the effects on your life can be dramatic.
    Known as the Zone of Silence, it is a place where radio waves barely permeate the air. Located between the states of Chihuaua, Coahuila, Durango & 400 miles from U.S. Border, something in the area makes it almost impossible to receive radio, television, cell or any other sound related transmissions. The exact cause of this phenomenon has not been fully explained to date, with many theories abounding that the area has been heavily influenced by extra-terrestrial & other paranormal activities.

    Shamans “see” through their hearts. Shamanic tribes like the Maori of New Zealand believe that the physical world we experience is actually a projection coming from each individual heart. The Mayans and the Q’ero tribe in the Peruvian Andes have their own versions of this basic understanding. Their shamans know that self-importance, created by the ego, is dedicated to keeping the powerful heart portal closed off enough to prevent Spirit from shining through.

    The ego accomplishes this by shutting down the heart to the point where the portal remains closed to the spirit world. The portals pop open only when a certain amplitude is reached, so keeping it below a certain level prevents opening. What keeps amplitude low are all the familiar maladies: fear, hostility, self-importance, depression, self-doubt, cynicism, and frustration. Because of these, most people’s hearts are shut down most of the time, which feels bad in the chest and cuts off the main avenue of escape from pain and suffering — an open heart.

    Gratitude counters these ploys by the parasitical false personality and raises the amplitude high enough to begin the heart-opening process.
    Hank Wesselman and Sandra Ingerman

    The Mountain Witch
    ~* Initiation: Earning Your Degree *~ Here are the steps that many covens follow in the granting of degrees of initiation. Of course, there is some variation from tradition to tradition and from coven to coven, because, as Denise (Author of "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Wicca and Witchcraft") likes to say, if you ask 200 witches a question you will get 400 answers! icon smile Our Facebook RSS * First Degree Initiation: A year and a day after your dedication, after study and some hard work, and provided the High Priestess and Priest feel you are ready, you can earn your First Degree Initiation. Now you are a member of the coven and a First Degree witch! * Second Degree Initiation: A year and a day after earning your First Degree, and after more study and hard work you can earn your Second Degree Initiation, if the High Priestess and Priest feel you are ready. At this point, you can usually start teaching. * Third Degree Initiation: A year and a day after you earned your Second Degree, you can get your Third Degree Initiation, provided the Priestess and Priest feel you are ready. Sometimes this degree takes a little more time to earn because there's a lot to learn. Once you have your Third Degree, you attain the status of High Priestess or Priest and can break away from the mother coven or "hive off" and form your own coven. If you do that, you will be High Priestess (or Priest) and the leader of the new coven. If you don't want to start your own coven, you can stay in your mother coven with the rank of High Priestess or Priest. Depending on the coven, you may share the responsibilities of leadership. Some covens go to four degrees with the Fourth Degree representing training to be a High Priestess or Priest. ** Remember, these can vary from tradition to tradition, or coven to coven. It may not be the way to go for you…or it might sound perfect. Either way…enjoy, and make sure you don't commit to anything you are unsure of.

    Not everyone dabbles in the ancient beliefs that there are witches that walk among us, for a few years back in the early 80's I thought I'd try and see if maybe I could actually be a witch. I went out and bought a spell book, candles, and even a cauldron,…

    Good morning everyone well what can I say but the “best laid plans of mice and men” I had my whole day planned but a phone call yesterday changing my 2pm to 10am appointment so I have to rush around like a madman so been along the river and watched the FROST!!!!! Melt and the mist rise then a mad dash around the supermarket and rush back to do all the housework and hit facebook and time to rest and take 5 minutes to center myself. So today no matter how mad or rushed your day is may the gods grant you the time to stop center and re-energize yourself. Brightest Blessings Draco )o(/|\

    7th Moon Day info:

    Symbols: Scepter, Compass.
    Characteristics: Day is connected with deeper use of prayers, mantras, verbal magic, and work with spirits and elements of nature. Day when prayers have the magic power of faith. Everything we say, and wish to ourselves and others, has potential to become reality.

    Recommendations: Today the surrounding us nature is very receptive to what we say, even unintentionally, and we have to work with our verbal skills. Sincere prayers and good wishes will come true. Day is great for practicing yogic asanas (physical exercise), and doing work with our hands.

    Precautions: Provocative day, be very careful what you say and wish. Important to avoid lying, it's better to keep silence, than to speak lies. Speak less, avoid idle chatter, empty promises, use of meaningless and repetitive words. Protect your lungs and be careful not to catch cold.
