Samhain Blessings!

Samhain Blessings! :)))


Merry Meet :))) It's Samhain! :))) This is my favorite Wiccan Sabbat. Ever since I was little, Halloween was always my favorite.

Samhain is pronounced SOW-in, SAH-vin, or SAM-hayne. I personally pronouse it the last way. :)) It is almost always celebrated on October 31, however some Wiccans celebrate it on November 1. The name Samhain originates from the Gaelic "Samhuin" which can mean the end of summer. Some other names for this Sabbat include the Third Harvest, Samana, Day of the Dead, Old Hallowmas, Vigil of Saman, Shadowfest and Samhuinn. Tonight is our New Year. At sunset this evening it is the beginning of the Celtic New Year. Tonight is a night where we need to let go of the old and prepare to bring in the now. Take a look at where you have been over the last year. Is there anything you wish to finish before this evening? Make a list of what you wish for in the New Year. :))

This is one of the two times during the year where the Veil is at it's thinnest at communication with those who have crossed becomes easier. Tonight is the night for communication with your ancestors and loved ones who have already crossed. Tonight is a night of feasting and honoring those who have gone before us. It is also a night of increasing psychic awareness. For those of you who are sensitive you have probably already been noticing the energy shifting around you. If you are wanting to work on your psychic powers tonight is the night. If you have divination skills that you wish to work on, do it this evening as you will likely have quite effective results.

Tonight we celebrate the turning of the Wheel of the year. We say goodbye to our crops tonight as we have completed our final harvest. We get ready for the cold weather which is beginning to come down upon us. The Mother Earth is preparing for a long sleep, and the plants and animals are responding accordingly. Our Sun God is not with us tonight as he is readying to be reborn at Winter Solstice. We call upon the Crone tonight to assist us this evening.

Samhain is a fire festival. Traditionally it has been celebrated with bonfires, and large feasts. When doing magickal workings tonight focus on releasing bad habits, any banishing work, divination, astral projection, past life regressions, clearing obstacles, and contacting those who have departed.

Full Hunters Moon

Full Hunter's Moon

Merry Meet :)) Tonight is the night of the Full Hunter's Moon. It is the night when the veil between the worlds is at it's thinnest. It's the full moon that is closest to Samhain. Tonight is a night of spiritual growth. It's easiest for you to communicate with those who have gone before you. If you have a loved one on the other side, tonight is the best night to try to contact them or leave them an offering.

You can probably feel the shift in the energy of the world around you. The air is getting very crisp, and the nights are getting longer as we transition with the turn of the Wheel of the Year. Tonight's moon is also known as the Blood Moon, Shedding Moon, or Falling Leaf Moon among other names. The Full Hunter's Moon is Native American in it's name origin. It's pretty easy to see why they would've named it this way. It's the time when they needed to start hunting to get their storage ready for the long winter ahead. As all the leaves are almost off the trees now, it also makes it easier to see the animals in the woods. Historically this is an important day of feasting in Europe and among many Native American tribes.

Tonight is a very strong night to work with your animal totems and guides. If you are looking to discover your animal spirit guide, tonight is the perfect night to do so. It's a very powerful night for divination as well.

Gods: Herne, Apallo, Cernunnos, Mercury, Ishtar, Astarte, Demeter, Lakshmi
Element: Air
Colors: Dark blue, Black, Purple
Gemstones: Obsidian, Amethys, Tourmaline, Opal

Mondays are ruled by the magic and mystery of the Moon and are days of peace, sleep, healing, compassion, friends, psychic awareness, purification, and fertility.

Use emeralds for amulets.

Lemuria



Merry Meet :))

How many of you have heard of Lemuria? How about Atlantis? :))) Lemuria is a similar civilization to Atlantis, but it is believed that it came before Atlantis and actually existed during the same time as Atlantis. It existed approximately between 25,000 and 75,000 BC. Lemuria is sometimes referred to as the Motherland of Mu, or Mu. Lemuria was located in the Southern Pacific between North America and Asia. It is up for debate on it's existence as scientists say it's location cannot be proved. However you will find many people who identify closely with Lemuria. I am one of them. :) Lemuria was a civilization that was very spiritually evolved.

In the mid nineteenth century, Lemuria was believed to be a bridge of continents in the Indian Ocean. They believed it was how the Lemurs crossed from Madagascar to India. From there the legends evolved. By the end of the nineteenth century it was believed that the people of Lemuria were a very advanced civilization. Several books have been written about Lemuria throughout time. It's a place that has definitely captured the hearts of many.

It is believed that the people of Lemuria were different then we are now. It was a time when spirits were just beginning to live in human bodies, and there were no gender differences at that time. It was closer to what we believe the other side looks like if you will. It is also believed at that time, all communication was telepathic. This led to very deep connections between the people of Lemuria and their surroundings as they were able to communicate effectively with the animals, vegetations and even stones as well as others like them. Because of this they were very advanced crystal healers. They took the time to develop relationships with the stones that they worked with. The stones in turn aided their healing practices and wishes. They were also very conscious about what they used. For instance if they used a plant medicinally they would ask permission to use the plant first.

This is just a small introduction of my studies of Lemuria. There are sooo many amazing articles and books out there on this magickal place I encourage you to look into them and form your own opinion. Do you believe in Lemuria?

Love and Blessings,

How To Carry Your Gemstone

How to Carry Your Gemstones


Merry Meet :))

I have truly come to love working with gemstones. In previous articles we have gone over storage and cleansing along with several gemstones. Tonight I wanted to emphasize something that I find extremely important as a sensitive. Wear your gemstones. :)))

I know it really does sound simple. It makes a huge difference for me. When I started working with gemstones I found wearing them was what really made the stones start working for me. The difference was amazing. I wear several stones. They are in necklaces, both purchased and homemade, bracelets, rings, and anklets. By doing this their energy is always close to you and will influence you throughout the day. They are also easily accessible, so depending on my need I can reach for any one of them at any time. I have an amethyst in a pentacle around my neck. One of my rings is kyanite and the other is a star sapphire. My bracelet and one of my favorites has a rainbow moonstone. The other one I keep on me all the time is a soapstone necklace that looks like the moon and was made for me by a wonderful friend.

It is easy to make smaller gemstones that you may have into necklaces as well. At any craftstore or even Walmart they sell the necklace tops. They look a bit like a star with a loop on top and you can use superglue to attach them. I then use simple black rope to tie them around my neck. I have several done up like this and will select different ones as the need arises in addition to my ones that I wear on a normal basis. It's a less expensive solution then buying them already made. :)))

On the day of the full moon I cleanse and charge them all according to what's best. The majority of mine are cleansed by running them under cool water and then leaving them under the light of the moon to charge.

I hope this helps!

Love and Blessings,

Jasmeine Moonsong

Flower Divination



Flower Divination


Merry Meet :))

How many of you have spent time when you were little, pulling the petals off of a daisy one by one until you reached that final petal that would tell you if he loved you or not? You can also use this method for any other question that involves a yes or no answer. The final petal is your answer. How about spending time in a field looking for that perfect green-four leaf clover that would bring you good luck? Did you realize these are forms of divination? :)))

Flower divination has been used around the world since ancient times. It is also called Floromancy. It is the art of using flowers for divination purposes by interpreting their colors, markings, location and planting times just to name a few. Once you start researching it there are so many different methods that you will find. How about kissing someone under the mistletoe at the holidays? Did you know that you can tuck a Bay Leaf under your pillow at night to help you dream about your true love?

One method of flower divination that you can try is interpreting a petal of a pansy. Find a pansy that you can use for divination. Close your eyes and think about the question you want answered. When you are ready, pull one petal from the pansy. The following is a very basic guide on how to interpret your petal.

- If you see four lines, it's a sign of hope
- If you see five lines it's a sign of hope, but that hope is founded in fear
- If you see seven lines it means you will be lucky in love
- If you see eight lines it means fickleness surrounds you
- If you see nine lines you will have a change of heart
- If you see eleven lines you will have disappointment in love
- If one of the lines is bent to the right you will prosper
- If one of the lines is bent to the left there will be trouble ahead.

Cole's Birthday Cake




Merry Meet :)))

Today is my son Cole's 5th Birthday. :)))) Happy Birthday! :)))) Cole isn't one for sweets or traditional cakes.  However he does like ice cream. :)))) So I spent all of yesterday afternoon making him an ice cream cake.  I thought some of you might like it so I'm passing the recipe on to you. :))))

What You Need
 - 1 package oreo cookies
 - 1 package other flat cookies.  (we chose Rainbow M&M Chips Ahoy)
 - 1 Stick butter
 - 1 Jar Hot Fudge
 - 1/2 Gallon cookie dough ice cream
 - Round pan


Take the oreo cookies and crush them up.  I used a food processor to do it quicker.  Set a little bit aside to use on the top of the cake.

When you have the entire package crushed, melt a stick of butter and add it to the oreos.  Mix it together and then put it in the bottom of the pan.  Press it down in the bottom until it is pretty firm.

Line the cookies you have chosen around the edge of the pan.  This will help to form your slices. :)

Heat the hot fudge and pour it over the oreos and in between the cookies.


Then put the pan in the freezer to let the hot fudge firm up.  At the same time you want to take the ice cream out of the freezer so that it softens.

When the ice cream is really soft, and the top of the fudge is fairly firm, add the ice cream on top of the hot fudge. 

Add a couple of teaspoons of crushed oreo to the top of the cake.  

Drizzle the top with caramel and chocolate sauce.  (optional)

Love and Blessings,

Native American Power Animals




Native American Power Animals


Merry Meet :))

I am one who identifies closely with Native American practices. I know there are several of you who do as well. I came across a website in my travels and thought it was really wonderful so I wanted to share it with you. The website is called My Power Animals. It has a wonderful page on Native American Animal Astrology. Native Americans assign totem animals based on when you were born. It is known as your birth totem. They are also known as your solar totem. I would be curious how many of you have a natural attraction towards your birth totem. :)) Many of you know that I work closely with the red-tailed hawk and the white wolf. My birth totem is actually a bear. :))) Funny enough I have been surrounded by bears my entire life. Both my parents were born under the Bear. They live in a log cabin and their house is packed with art that has to do with bears. So I have always loved bears as well. :)))))) When I went to read the description of the bear I was laughing as I read how accurate it was for me. As a matter of fact both my parents, myself, and my sister are all bears. I found that very interesting. :)))))

Take a look to see what yours is. I wouldn't be surprised if you have pictures of this animal in your house, and have felt attracted to it during your life. The link to the site is below. When you go to it, it has detailed description on each of the birth totems. I hope you will enjoy this as much as I did.

Charm Bags



Charm Bags


Charm bags are really nice to work with as they strengthen our magickal workings. You may also see them referred to as spell bags. So when would you use something like this? There are so many ways you can use them. You can work a spell and then put some of the ingredients from the spell in the bag and carry it with you to strengthen the spell. I like to keep personal trinkets in mine that represent what I am currently working on. For instance I will have a small piece of hematite in it for protection, a picture of something I'm working on, special scents that are significant to me etc. They are very easy to make as well. You can have just one that you carry on you, or if you wish you can have several. For awhile I carried one that I used specifically to calm me. It had a clear quartz crystal in it, some lavender, white pebbles, and a feather that was significant to me. It's all about you and your intentions so make them as personal as you can! :)))

How to Make a Charm Bag

1. Choose a material to use for your bag. You want to make sure that the material is durable, but pleasant for you to work with. Velvet is a really nice choice to work with and one that I use most frequently.

2. Choose the color for your bag. You can choose a color that has special meaning for you if you are making a personal bag, or if it is to help strengthen a specific spell, choose a color that corresponds to the spell you are working on.

- White for purity or peace, angels or spirit guides
- Red for passion
- Orange for courage
- Yellow for energy and positive emotions
- Green for financial prosperity or fairies
- Blue for spirituality and healin
- Purple for intuition and psychic awareness
- Pink for love
- Gold for wealth and prosperity or a God
- Silver for the Goddes
- Black for banishing

This is just a partial list to get you started :)))

2. Cut your chosen material into two square sections. Put the two pieces together and have the insides facing each other. Think of it as your bag inside out. :))

3. Sew three of the sides together. While you are sewing visualize your intent for this bag. If you have specific goals think about how you will feel when they come true.

4. Decorate your bag. Get creative! :))))) I love glitter lol :)))) sparkle it up! Draw symbols, write words, sew beads, sequins, decorations etc. This is your bag :)))

5. This part is optional. You can either sew the bag closed, but I like to sew a ribbon around the top of the bag. If you choose to do this you will want to do it before adding the ingredients. Depending on the material you can cut several slits around the top of the bag and weave the ribbon in and out, or you can fold the material over the ribbon and stitch the ribbon in place at the top of the bag, leaving enough excess to tie the ribbon afterward. If you don't anticipate using the bag again, you can simply sew the bag shut when you are done. I like having a way to open and close it in case I find other trinkets to add to the bag to contribute to the energy.

6. Add what you wish to the bag, it can be anything to do with what you are working on. You may want to add essential oils to the inside of the bag as well to make it smell nice. I'm a big aroma girl. :))))

7. Carry it with you. :))))

p.s. for those of you who wish to skip the bag making process you can get cute little bags that will work perfect for this as well. Just be sure to cleanse and consecrate them before using. I'm putting a picture below of another type I use often. :))

Total Relaxation




Total Relaxation

Merry Meet :))


Total relaxation is the art of allowing your physical body to completely let go of all tension, while allowing your conscious mind to free itself of all cares and worries. As your conscious mind relaxes and your subconscious becomes open and more aware. It is in this state that you are more open to hearing messages from your guides, angels, and those who have crossed to the other side. It is also in this state that you may remember things about your past lives that will hold important clues as to why you are the way you are today.

When you find total relaxation you will reduce your stress levels and renew your energy. It is a way to become more in tune with your true self, free of all the limitations that have been placed on you in this life while you learn your life lessons. Total relaxation can release negative energies captured within your body and allow them to heal. These negative energies are usually largely responsible for any illnesses or pain you may be experiencing. When done regulary you will experience an increase in your daily energy and your health can have dramatic improvents.

This is also very important for those of you wishing to develop your psychic gifts. It opens your natural abilities of intuition and precognition. When you do it regularly you will learn to reach this state quicker and easier allowing you to access it at any time, and giving you the freedom of using it for shorter amounts of time if you so desire. When I do any sort of medium work or passing of messages this is the state that I am in to do it.

So how do we get there? Meditation. :)) You've heard me say it a lot, here are more reasons for you to work hard at it. Other ways are taking walks, swimming, any sort of creative or physical activity where you are able to "tune out" the world and slip into your subconscious for awhile. It truly does hold the keys to a lot of information for you leading to enlightenment.

I have a meditation on youtube for you to try if you wish. It's one that I find really relaxing :))) You can find it here: Guided Meditation - Deep Relaxation

HSP's and Sensing Energy of Places




HSP's and Sensing Energy of Places


Merry Meet :)))

If you've found your way to me, chances are you are a highly sensitive person. What does that mean? Basically everything in the world consists of energy. The air around us, the trees, rocks, people, music, anything you can think of consists of energy. Some of us are born more sensitive to this energy. It allows us to feel this energy easier then others. Now am I saying if you aren't highly sensitive you can't feel this energy? No. A comparable example is playing the piano. Can everyone do it? Absolutely with practice, time, and dedication anyone can learn to play the piano. However are there those people that will be able to play quicker? Absolutely. So being an HSP is a lot like that. You have a gift of being able to sense energy. For additional information on it, I wrote an article about HSP's previously. Are You A Highly Sensitive Person.

So let's take this a bit further. When you are sensitive to that energy there are going to be areas that you will feel more then others. Empaths are especially tuned in to the energy of others emotions. How about those that are sensitive to the energy of places? :)))) Have you ever walked into a house or building or even been wandering amongst the woods when you've come across an area and you can just feel it's energy? How did it feel? Peaceful, cheerful, dismal? You might feel it in your hands as they start to tingle, or the back of your neck. You may sense it in your stomach, or maybe you will even get a blur of a picture of the past in your mind's eye. Why is this?

Places hold onto energy. That energy is stored in trees, animals, houses, flowers and so on. The stronger the energy the stronger the imprint. It is why you may be more likely to feel a place with a tragic past as the energy imprints are stronger. Another strong example I have stumbled across quite a bit recently are those places that contain magickal energy. I could literally write a book about the different things to look for when sensing the energy of places around us. But for now, perhaps you can try an experiment. :))) Pick several locations to walk through and keep a journal of your experiences.

Some examples are the following:

A trail in the woods. Follow the trail. Where does it lead? Was there a community there at one time? Who use to travel this trail. Is it an old road? Or just an old walking trail. As you walk along it see if you can sense the energy around you and the type of people who have traveled that trail before you.

Old cemeteries. LOL Don't be afraid. :))) And no I wouldn't suggest going at night. Unless you are much braver then I am. :)))) In all seriousness the majority of times I walk into cemeteries I find them quite peaceful. Take a walk among one. I honestly find the older ones more calming then the newer ones. I think the reason for this is the recent energy of people in pain of losing a loved one is still to strong in the newer ones. So my suggestion is to find an older area, or an old one. Walk among the stones. Do any feel different to you? Can you feel their stories? What type of person they were? Do any really catch your attention?

Walking down a street: On your next walk round your neighborhood or other residential area note how you feel when you walk by houses. Don't go by appearance for appearance can be really deceiving. I have gotten the chills walking by the most gorgeous houses before, and the warmest feeling when walking by run down homes. What matters is the people who live there. Walk slower and try to notice how you feel in front of each house. Any differences?

Another place that is always full of energy for me is libraries, and old book stores. I can actually get overwhelmed in places like this if I'm not careful.

This is an exercise that I do pretty much every time I get a chance to walk or go out by myself. I let my intuition guide me and see what I can sense. I have found some amazing places this way.  If you are a history nut like I am it can be better then reading a good book. :)))) I love walking around old areas in the woods and trying to learn what life use to be like. When you learn the patterns of the energy you will start noticing more on your adventures.

Have fun with it!

Love and Blessings,

The Hawthorn Tree




The Hawthorn Tree

 In Wicca, one of our sacred trees is the Hawthorn.  It is associated with Beltane, and was originally known as the May tree because it bloomed in May.  Hawthorn, also known as thornapple or Crataegus is part of the rose family.  They average in height from 16 - 49 feet in height. The most common variety has a gray bark and thorny branches. Some species have  a bright red fruit that resembles crabapples.

In ancient Greece and Rome hawthorn was a symbol of hope and happiness. In ancient Greece it was used in wedding bouquets and and corsages.  In Rome, the Goddess Cardea, also known as the White Goddess was associated with the Hawthorn.  She is the Goddess of marriage and childbirth in Rome.  The Hawthorn is known in Irish folklore as a fairy bush.  This name comes from the belief that fairies inhabit the tree and guard it.  It's bad luck to cut the tree down, however during May day trimming of the branches for celebration is allowed.  After the celebration they would place the branches in their home to ward off evil spirits.

Hawthorn dilates blood vessels allowing blood to flow freely. It also works well on a damaged heart to help blood flow more efficiently.  In the future it may become an important part of cardiac medicine as scientists are looking closer at it's medicinal uses. However it can be toxic in large doses hence the careful research.   In Germany there are many products with it on the market already.

In magickal working, the Hawthorn is associated with fertility. In Ireland today it is still custom for newlyweds to dance around a Hawthorn tree  Great care should be taken whenever removing the branches from this spiritual tree.  If the tree is standing alone it should be left alone.  Look for it's branches along the ground rather then removing one from the tree.  The wood is wonderful for making talismans and wands used for health, protection and luck.

Love and Blessings,

Easy Tarot Card Pulls




Easy Tarot Card Pulls

Merry Meet :)))

Several of you have been asking me for more information regarding reading tarot cards. Today I wanted to go into a couple basic spreads for you that you can use when learning the tarot. The first is a spread that I use daily with a few different decks. I will do it with my angel deck and my avalon deck every day. It's a simple single card draw. It's become a huge part of my daily routine. I will ground and center before doing the pull. Before I draw a card, I will ask "What do my guides want me to know today." I'll then pull the card for my answer. With the angel oracle I'll phrase it asking "What do the angels want me to know today." These card pulls in the morning always help to give me information on my day and where my path in life is going.

Whenever you are doing any form of divination you want to be clear about what you are asking. Form your question in your mind ahead of time and get as specific with it as you can. If you don't it can lead to confusing cards or a difficult interpretation of your reading. So for instance, in my daily pull you will notice that I ask the question, "What do my guides want me to know today?" This is more specific then "What will happen today?" If you want to know about a specific situation clarify your situation. Feel free to talk out loud :) I do when I do my readings. If you are in a place where it's uncomfortable for you to speak out loud, do it in your mind. You can be heard there to if you choose.

The second card pull I use fairly frequently is a three card draw. The first card represents your past, the second your present, and the third your future. When you do this pull you will want to ask something along the lines of "What card best represents my past?" For the present, "What do I need to know most about my present situation." For the future, "What do I need to know about my future?" or "Where is my future going based on the path I am currently on."

While formal structured card pulls are nice I was taught to go with your intuition. A lot of times I will pull cards based on what I want to know. So for instance, say I have a problem that I am looking for a solution to. For my first card, "What is at the root of the problem I am having?" For a second card, "What do I need to know about the problem I am having?" A third card, "Show me what the obstacle is in this problem I am having." Another card could be "Show me a possible solution or outcome to this problem." or "What do my guides want me to know about the issue I am having."

The art of tarot is being able to communicate with your guides. They are simply a tool to ease the communication process. So talk to them! :) Make your questions as specific as you can and then pull a card for your answer. I think part of the issue and obstacle with people learning tarot is that there is so much to remember, and it can seem confusing when trying to use it. If you relax and use it as a tool to assist you in communicating then it will become easier. Look at the pictures on the cards not just the numbers and symbols that come up. Each card tells a story. When you pull a card look at it and ask yourself what the divine is trying to tell you by giving you that card. I hope this helps!

Love and Blesssings,

Copper




Copper


Copper is mankind's first metal.  It is dated back to 3900 BC in ancient Sumeria and Egypt as one of the first documentations of it's use. During ancient Mesopotamian times it was attributed to the Queen of Heaven.   It is arguably one of the most important and useful metals to mankind. It was likely the first metal to be used to make weapons and objects.  It's also used to make arrow and spear tips, axes and other tools.  Copper is a softer metal, so it's easier to work with.

Copper is a good conductor of electricity, and heat.  Because of this, it's also considered metaphysically to be a good conductor of spiritual energy. In Healing work copper is used to facilitate energy between the person and the crystal or other healing tools you are using.  In addition to helping move energy it also is helpful in removing psychic blocks.  It can help the user to feel rejuvinated as it gets the energy moving in the body.

Copper is an essential nutrient for all plants and animals.  It's present in humans and animals bloodstreams. Copper can help to improve circulation.   Too much of it though, can prove to be toxic.

Copper can be used on all chakras but is most effective on the heart and root chakras as preperation for medication.  It is also considered a lucky metal and is quite useful when used with other stones to assist in magick and rituals.

To cleanse copper, place it overnight in a bowl filled with hematite stones.  You don't want to put copper with water. To recharge copper place it in the sun.  Please be cautious when wearing it as some people are sensitive to it.

Love and Blessings,

Ancestors On The Other Side

original graphic by JollyPen


Ancestors On The Other Side

Merry Meet :)))

I was sitting here musing about what to write about today for this article, and I felt there was something there and I couldn't quite get at it. So I took a shower. lol :) While I was in the shower I got a lot of information coming to me, so I'm assuming this article directly pertains to at least one of you. It's a rather delicate situation so I am going to write this as best I can.

As a lot of you know, ancestors can be our spirit guides. Most of you know that I work very closely with my Grandfather. When we leave our life here on Earth we go over to the Summerlands, or the Other Side as I often refer to it as. What I need you to understand is while the soul is the same of the person who you knew here on Earth, when they get to the Other Side, they will change a bit. Once you cross you are freed from many emotional and physical burdens that you carry here on earth. So things such as pain, jealousy, anger, etc do not exist there. They will be their soul in it's purest form. When we are here on Earth, we agree to come here with a set amount of challenges. We come here to learn. So we will agree to come back with a physical disability, or an addiction, something in which we need to overcome in this life. This can alter our personality here on Earth from our true soul. That is part of my gift to see past those burdens in personality to the true soul of a person. That however is another article in and of itself.

So when working with an ancestor they may be different then you knew them here on Earth. Let's say a relative was an alcoholic this life. They didn't overcome that obstacle that they set forth for themself in this life, or perhaps her being in that role served as a lesson for someone else. In any event, being here like that could lead to things being said that weren't meant, anger, basically things said and done that did not line up with who this person really was. As part of healing yourself from someone like this, part of our job is to forgive them for what they may have done. It helps heal you and will help open that line of communication back up. So if that person has come back to you as your guide don't be afraid to work with them? Get to know their true soul. It can be difficult. Often they will specifically come back to help with the healing process for you. So try to let go of any emotions you have attached to that person and feel the love that is still under there that binds your souls together. We typically travel through many lives together, and while this life may not have been pleasant between the two of you, you likely had other lifetimes together that were. I'm not saying it's easy, but it will help you in the long run. Now if Aunt Ida was a really outgoing lady who tended to always say what was on her mind, is she going to change? Perhaps not lol. :)) It depends on where the personality trait comes from.

I also want to clarify that any guide you work with will never and I mean never say anything negative, guide you into harms way, or try to belittle you in any way. If this ever happens this is not a guide and you need to deal with this immediately. You can smudge with white sage, cleanse your house, basically order that person to leave. I will smudge pretty routinely and say something along the lines of "any spirits who are not here for my highest good, or the highest good of my immediate family are ordered to leave this house immediately." That draws your boundaries. This is also why I love working with the angels as a Wiccan. If I feel threatened at all, I will call in Archangel Michael immediately to help protect me. If I am unsure about what I am receiving or just want additional support I will call in Angel Muriel. There is no doubt that they are always on your side, and I can always feel them very clearly no matter what is going on. So I am a huge advocate of everyone working with the angels regardless of your chosen religion.

To whomever this article is directed to, if you need additional help, please feel free to email me. I will help you through it as best as I can. I can sense the confusion as this person was less then nice to you this life, but I can also sense the love still there. I think they mainly wanted to get the message across that it was safe, and they were sorry and will no longer hurt you. The quote, affirmation, and tarot card as well as the pictures will be significant to you as well. Whomever this person is, definitely wants to be heard. *wraps you in a huge hug*

Make Time For The Things That Make You Feel Good

Original graphic by: Pat Brennan


Make Time For The Things That Make You Feel Good


Merry Meet :))))

We all have things that we love to do. Some examples of mind are singing, reading, researching, taking walks, etc. However, some of those things will make us feel more relaxed then others. Each of us is different. So while I can sit here and tell you that if I walk for an hour when I come home I'll be completely relaxed the same may not be true for you. Do you know what types of activities make you relaxed?

Let's go on a journey to find them.

Grab a pen and a piece of paper.

On that paper I want you to spend 5 minutes and write down every activity that you can think of that you enjoy doing. Feel free to add some that you haven't tried. For instance you may want to add coloring mandalas to the list or painting.

Over the next couple of weeks, I know some of you are very busy, I want you to try out as many of those activities as you can.

Make a small journal of sorts taking notes on how you feel. Note how you feel when you start the activity, and how you feel afterwards. Also note things that could affect the outcome of that activity. For instance if you are going to paint, it might be more relaxing to do it on your own then with your three-year old hanging on your leg. ;) Trust me I know.

The point of doing this is to find the activities that you enjoy that relax you the most. So for instance, a simple example is this. I enjoy watching tv at night. However I know on particularly noisy days the tv just ads more noise and I'm more relaxed reading a book. So I know that on days it's especially noisy not to watch tv and to read instead. I know that when I walk in the woods for an hour I come back completely relaxed. I also enjoy long drives. These are the type of things you are looking for. Those activities that make you feel like you just finished a meditation.

You can keep this list and edit it at any time. Use it to learn all about you! Once you find those activities make time to do them more! Find places that you can incorporate them. You may find that taking a 15 minute walk in the morning makes you more relaxed then that cup of coffee and the news. It's all about you. When you are relaxed your days will go smoother, life will seem easier, and you will have better use of your time.

Love and Blessings,

Feathers




Feathers

Merry Meet :))

The other day I received a question from a reader about a raven's feather she found on her doorstep. She had asked a couple of people and they said it was a negative omen. In some cultures, it is believed that a black feather on your doorstep signifies that death of someone is close or bad luck. However, she and her significant other had been going through some extremely tough times. They had just moved into a new house. She also told me that her husbands totem animal was a raven. It was my belief that the feather was a sign that she was on the right path. It's a sign I'm quite familiar with as well. It's not uncommon for me to wake in the morning and find a feather from a raven on my doorstep. What's funny about them is they are usually perfectly lined up with the door as if someone had set them there. So my point with this story, is while reading about the different cultural symbolisms of things also look at your situation and follow your intuition. If I believed that I was going to have bad luck every time I found a black feather on my doorstep my life would be much different. However, the timing of the feathers and the energy I felt around them let me know not to be afraid.

Feathers have been symbolic in many cultures for a very long time. There are all different types of feathers and literally hundreds of meanings and interpretations for them if you start digging. Native Americans believed that symbolically fathers represent spiritual ascension to a different plane. They wore feathers as a sign of their ability to communicate with spirit and their wisdom. Druids had beautiful feathered robes that they wore during their rituals to help them invoke the sky gods. They believed that the presence of these gods along with the cloak would allow them to enter the ethereal realm. If you look on google you will find so many different meanings of feathers.

Another area I wanted to touch upon is the color of feathers. As wiccans we will often use feathers in talisman's or spellwork and it's important to know what color feathers correspond to what aspects. Here's a brief guide for you to help you in your workings:

White: purification, spirituality, hope, protection, peace and blessings of the Moon.

Pink: love, romance caring, empathy, kindness, tenderness.

Red: grounding, physical vitality, courage, good luck and fortune, life. Corresponds to root chakra.

Orange: attraction, energy, success, physical love, new ideas, will power, and independence.

Yellow: wisdom, playfulness, positive attitude, alertness, prosperity.

Green: harmony, unity, prosperity, money, health, nature, animals, plants, forgiveness, fertility

Blue: mental abilities, psychic awareness, spiritual connection, knowledge, communication, protection, peace

Purple: connection with the universe and universal energy

Brown: stability, respect, home

Gray: peace, balance, neutrality

Black: bring mystical wisdom that comes with true spiritual initiation. Protection.
