Your Book of Spells




Your Book of Spells


Merry Meet :))))) I know many of you are just starting to work with spells, some of you haven't begun yet. One thing I believe to be very important when working rituals and spells is recording your experiences. Some will do this right inside their Book of Shadows. I, however, am a bit of a neat freak and prefer to have my Book of Shadows look aesthetically pleasing and use a separate journal to record my results when I work with spells, rituals, and even divination. I include tarot and other forms of divination in this book as they are working with magick as well. In all honesty, divination makes up a huge amount of my book. There are so many reasons why keeping records like this for your reference is important. I use a binder for this as I can organize what spells I've worked with into tabs according to type of spell. This is extremely helpful for future reference. I also have a few pages in the front dedicated as an index. On those pages I list which spells I have done, and the date they were done. While I'm writing this, it's just occured to me that you could likely use a technological method as well such as an iphone app, or the computer. Perhaps one day I will convert mine. So let's get into why you would want to do this.

The most important reason is so that you have a record of your magickal work. I love having a record of the spells that I have worked with. This makes it easy when I need to work with one to reference back what worked for me in the past, rather then digging through books for "that spell I used 8 months ago." It helps you to keep everything neat and organized which is very important to your craft.

You have a record of your results, immediate and future results. After you do your workings record everything that you can think of on that day. The more information the better. Some things to include are moon phase, time of day, weather, colors wearing, incense burning, the mood you are in etc. While it may not seem relevant at the time, it can become very relevant in the future when you are learning how you work with spells the best. When you work with this book you should not only record immediate results, but come back to the pages in the future and record any changes. I have a spell on each page, that leaves me plenty of space at the bottom of the page to write results later on. This is very helpful if you have a reading you've done for yourself that perhaps didn't make sense the day you did it, but a week later it will make perfect sense. It's also helpful in the respect that most magick you work will not manifest immediately. It takes time for it to come to fruition and you will not know the results right away. By doing this faithfully it will help you learn how you perform as an artist. For that is exactly what we are, artists. We will never work magick the same for we are all different. Therefore you must learn the best methods for you from you.

As a side note, I have a separate book that I keep all spells I come across and want to save in. I don't put them into my Book of Spells until I have used them. You could just have a section at the back of your binder for this. For me though, I like having them separate. For me the energy on them is different.

Love and Blessings,

Valentine's Day - Ancient Pagan Fertility Rite

original graphic by: FrozenMelody


Merry Meet :))

Tomorrow we celebrate Valentine's Day. A blissful day of love and celebrating those whom we love. Did you know that this holiday actually has Pagan Roots? Did you know we are actually celebrating an ancient Pagan fertility rite?

Lupercalia was an ancient pre-Roman festival that was celebrated from February 13 through February 15th. This festival was a time to purify the city and remove evil spirits to help the city be fertile for the coming spring. The celebration of Februa also known as Februatio, was a spring cleaning festival with earlier roots that was incorporated into the Lupercalia festival. You'll notice the name February came from this name. Februare is a latin word that means purification.

During this festival February 14th was a special day. On this day in Pagan Rome they had a love lottery. Young girls names were written on slips of paper and put into jars or urns to be picked out by the eligible boys. They would then be partnered for the rest of the Lupercalia festival.

In Roman Mythology Lupercus is a God who is sometimes identified with the Roman God, Faunus, who is the Roman equivalent of the Greek God Pan. Lupercus is the God of shepherds. The Lupercalia festival celebrates the founding of his temple on February 15.

Around 500 C.E. Christianity was progressing into Rome and the Pagan festival was seen as Pagan and immoral and outlawed by Pope Gelasius. His way to make the Pagan festival more Christian was instead of having the names of girls put into jars, he would have the names of Saints put into jars. The boys would then draw a name of a Saint, and do their best to be more like that Saint throughout the year.

After doing this, he declared St Valentine to be the Patron Saint of lovers, and declared that his day was to be held every year on February 14. In the conversion to Christianity, they tried to keep as many Pagan holidays and traditions as they could, but they modified them to fit Christianity in an effort to convert all the Pagans and minimize the uproar of the conversion. It is said that he may have been named for a priest who served under Emperor Claudius.

"The legend is that the young priest, Valentine, disobeyed Claudius by performing wedding ceremonies for young men, when the Emperor preferred to see them roped into military service rather than marriage. While imprisoned, Valentine fell in love with a young girl who visited him, perhaps the daughter of the jailer. Before he was executed, he allegedly sent her a letter, signed, From your Valentine. No one knows if this story is true, but it certainly makes St. Valentine a romantic and tragic hero." (About.com)

Something to think about Have a Blessed Valentine's Day! :)))

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Reiki Attunement




Reiki Attunement

Merry Meet :)))) I had one of you asking about Reiki the other day. I got my Reiki attunement several years ago, and I absolutely love what it has done for me. I think one of the misconceptions out there is that it is useful only if you are going to perform it on someone else. That is not true. Reiki has so many benefits just for you it's amazing. You can perform Reiki on yourself and it will help to keep you healthy. It can help with pain management as well. You will be able to use it on your significant others, children etc. I have used it on my children several times. My children will actually ask me for my hands now when they get a boo-boo instead of a bandaid. It can lead to some funny looks but I love it. :))) You can also send it by distance as well.

Almost all of you who are subscribed to me, if not all, are highly sensitives. The majority of you are also empaths. Reiki will have huge benefits for all of you. Since we are sensitive to energy it makes it easier to work with energy. This makes picking up Reiki very easy. It is also easier for us to feel. In addition to being able to feel my hands buzz when I do healing they also work as a sort of divining rod for me. I thought I was alone in this until I had a couple others of you note the same! I can walk into a bookstore for instance, if there is a book I should read my hand will start buzzing. Using my intuition and my hand I can locate the book I am meant to read. It's very hard to explain unless you have done it.

Reiki also increased my ability to tell where someone is injured as well. If I scan someone I will feel temperature in my hands. This also is a little hard to describe. If I feel nothing, things are normal. Warm usually indicates muscle issue, cold indicates something more serious nerves, bones etc. Basically it ranges it temp from warm to ice cold. I have been able to pinpoint injuries before that doctors have had difficulties finding. I am always floored when I am correct. I have been experimenting with this for quite some time.

Am I saying you will have all of this happen when you get your attunement? No. However, if you are sensitive and or an empath, I do think this is an avenue to pursue if you are wishing to develop your gifts. I have spoken with enough of you who have said it has made a difference, and have noted a lot of the same things I have. Don't let the fact that you wouldn't use it in some sort of practice or as a career move discourage you in the slightest. I highly recommend it. :))))

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Tomorrow Night's Full Moon in Leo



Merry Meet :))))))) Are you excited for tomorrow night's Full Moon? I can already feel the energy surrounding me. :)) We went for a walk last night at dusk because it was over 50 degrees here and you could see her almost Full in the sky on the walk home. :))))) So pretty :)))) We also had a red-tailed hawk sitting right at the edge of the road on our walk home. She was amazing as always :)) I think she may have been the one that sits on the wires in front of my house as she wasn't bothered by us standing and talking at all. :))) We were talking to a lady who lived in the neighborhood where we were walking who wanted to know what type of bird she was. :)))

As we go into today, the picture above is what's currently going on. :))) LOL You have to love New England. It's no longer 50 degrees but we are instead getting a Northeastern right now and we already have about 8 inches of snow and it's 9:00 a.m. The biggest amount of snow is suppose to slow down around 2..... So about 2 feet possibly? LOL Remember how I've talked about snow bringing new energy in the past as it blankets the Earth? I'm getting a lot of it. :)))

Release Your Fears and Move Forward




Release Your Fears and Move Forward

Merry Meet :))) A huge part of Wicca is discovering your true self and walking your personal path. A part of getting to know yourself better is looking at why you do the things you do.

So today I want to look at one fear that you have in your life. Pick one that seems to be the most prominent. For example I have trust issues, so I have chosen to work with that tonight. You may choose a fear of change, heights, foods, the dark, and the list goes on. Pick the one that feels right to you.

Find a place that is quiet that you can meditate or think quietly to yourself for a bit of time. I want you to take a good look at that fear. It may be helpful to write things down. Identify what the fear is as precisely as you can. Taking the trust example again, is it a fear of trusting anyone, certain people, certain circumstances etc. Write down as much detail as you can. I then want you to identify where you feel that fear most in your body. Do you feel it in your solar plexus, your heart chakra, does it just make you feel ill and shaky?

The next step is to figure out where this originated from. Start going back through your life until you find the earliest instance you can imagine of this fear. Look at that situation and identify how it impacted your life today. Then make a conscious decision to forgive whoever is involved. If there is no one else involved you may need to look and see if you need to forgive yourself. Write down on your paper who you forgive and why. Sit with that for a few moments and really concentrate on forgiving that situation. Realize that it is a situation that you were most likely meant to learn from. Identify what you learned and make that decision to move forward.

The next step is to release that fear. Envision that fear floating up and away from you. You may choose to burn a piece of paper with the fear on it to help you, or envision it in your hands and blowing it into the wind, or simply ask the Divine to take it from you.

The final step is to heal that fear. Surround yourself with white light and heal the area that you feel that fear the most. For instance I feel trust issues mainly in my solar plexus so I will fill that area with a loving energy to fill the space that I made by removing that fear.

You may want to choose one issue a month to work on. In doing this you will work on releasing your past and allowing yourself to move forward to the beautiful future that awaits you.

Much Love and Many Blessings,

Jasmeine Moonsong
