The rule of three. Remember the rule of three is true, that which you send returns three folds to you this lesson will, you must know you shall only receive that which you let go This is the rule of three, This week were working on week two with the letter C. I've selected the topic of curses. What does the rule of three and curses have to do with each other. Simple. If you send a curse out, just might come back to you, in general. People believe that if you're a pagan, a Wiccan, a witch, wizard, herbalist. You run around outside sky clad. Wrong, there might be those who enjoy running around the tree with no clothes on. I've never run across any or known anyone. Let's talk about curses, spells, curses and magical all lumped together. Most times when you think of a curse. You think oh, cursors and ill intent. There are help our protections and curses didn't think about `I have a why question for you. Why do people turn to magic? All of the reasons prehuman excess. The desire for dominance, well, love, pain, self-assurance, some for self-discovery. Magician's black or white, seek to be different were often called outlaws renegades were reckless, but always prepare well, not dissimilar from modern mountaineers. Incantations have been around for quite some time before Christ, the following was written on clay tablets. He who makes the image, he who casts the spell, the evil eye, the mischievous mouth, the mischievous lips, the mischievous words, spirit of the sky, remember the spirit of the earth. . Charms fall into the same category as curses a charm served against the demons and sickness sent by angry god or goddess. May, the sickness in my body, in my flesh and in my lambs, peel away as does this onion. Let it burn this very day in the flames of scorching fire left the burden be removed, you see a candlelight. Curses can also be what most people think of curse to all of three. The rule of three so the very careful and think about. Is there another way. When I say, is there another way. Most people know that witches are either black or white. Earth witches are healers, working with plants and their properties. All medicine long ago, came from trees and herbs, roots. Willow bark, the aspirin of the ancients. Being a witch takes a lot of effort, study and responsibility. A turning with nature is vital to being a witch. You cannot worship mother earth. You have no connections to her. We find joy and enrichment in things that many people take for granted. we listened to the song of the bird, we feel the life force of mother Earth. We are currently aware of the earth, wind, the rain , butterfly, . I watch, a new spider outside or in the home, respecting their ability to produce the more time anybody spends in nature. The more you see ia stronger connection to mother earth . I have noticed most witches read quite a bit. There could with garden. They put a bird feeders, much like any other. Being a witch is not cool, glamorous, chic, trendy or that most of us have spent our entire life learning respecting each other trying very hard to connect with the earth. We are true to ourselves and what counts is the power of our convictions. We have a code of ethics. There they are many many that don't understand the truth of her ways. And sadly a great deal of people have no interest in trying to. Are many stereotypes in this world. I wouldn't call myself a pagan. I would not call myself a Wiccan, I would call myself a Theosophists, spiritual, more than religious. Having traveled all over this world for with my husband. As with my mother and father . Having attended many many different religions, finding so many similar thoughts. There is so many names for one God. So many names for the wind, the Irish have and goddesses and God. People of the Philippines goddesses, and God, the Celtic have different names, for they are God's caucuses and God. Africa has many different names and practice their forum. Of spirituality. We all live under the same rules. Rules that we know of good or bad the matter what your religion is or where you are in open field in a grand cathedral, on the back porch with friends. When you're angry with someone learn to control your tongue and use your brain. When you feel like you have been in distress due to hard times. Don't go slinging curses remember the rule of three. Remember the rule of three is true, that which you send returns three fold to you, this lesson well. You must know, you shall only receive that which you let flow. I'd like to mention the full moon that just occurred, I get a lot of questions regarding the moon and for me in particular. As I have a Cancer Sun. Ths past week attended a full moon ritual, a beautiful ceremony. The full moon is the most exciting of the lunar phases. People have trouble sleeping when the moon is full sleepwalking is common. Many animals are restless dogs bark in the night. Herbs and roots harvested on this day will be especially effective than most characteristics of a full moon. Your motion are restless in a full moon. The sun and moon are positioned, directly across from each other in the sky and as far apart as they can get feelings of a band that meant at all beers and present yourself fearsomely surface from previous times. Aside from all the agitation. It creates pass from ancient times been thought. The right time for an inner turnaround for reconciliation and forgiveness. New friendships is also a time of solution and deliverance

Tonight I experienced a heart warming ritual through the Internet from Salem, Mass. , an Imbolic ritual performed by Rev. Don Shatner of Salem, Mass. He teaches through the Witch School International,and can be heard on Pagan Tonight every Thrusday,He offers educational and books of this writtings from Amazon, for all levels of education.
his voice is a delight to the ears...(bg)
if your not familiar with the Witch School, you are missing out.They offer much to any Pagan.
Blog cast radio is just one of the growing educational programs offered to Pagans of all levels.
Rev. Don Shatner performed the Imbolc ritual tonight
leaving me in a state of pure enlightenment. In areas where the Pagan community has not developed or a Bible belt band, it's hard to be with like minded pagans.
This on line ritual was a goddess send. This was my first on line ritual, and it will not be the last.Ice Moon ~ Storm Moon ~ Horning Moon ~ Hunger Moon ~ Wild Moon ~ Red & Cleansing Moon ~ Quickening Moon ~ Solmonath ( Sun Month ) ~ Big Winter Moon.
Next, I would like to remind that the Moon will be up to her glory and mark the dates.
Full Moon February 7th
Nearer to February 7th let me share with you the history of the names of the moons names.
and now ....
This is a name for divination through the dripping hot wax into water. The use of a candle that you have used in a spell casting has more power than an unused candle. So we start with a spelled candle.
The bowl of water, if I am planning the ceromancy in advance I charge water by a full moon energy on the night of a total full moon.
The bowl of crystal also powers the water, but it is not necessary it works just as well in a potter cermanic or a plain old bowl. (bg)
The intent and the power of your belief is what really is needed. The same is ture with any divination. Tea leaves, cards, pendlumn, a scyring black mirrow .
when special energy for divination presents itself , the occasion is marked. A spell cast over a session intended to divine information by magical means will improve your results dramatically.
A note here to speak of Quartrains....Quartrains are an intelgral part of basic spellwork and one of the most esential building blocks of a witch craft heritage. It is a four line rhyme form of poetry ideally suited for chants and incanations. The quality of the poetry is irrelevant as the point is to make an impression on the magical mind or to attract the attention of the elements, deities or other helpers whom you might wish to summon.
When written for the purpose of casting a divination, they are chants to be chanted. They appeal directly to the subconcious mind especially when repeatred again and again. minimun three times.My advice to you is to memorize your thoughts and begin repeating it slowly while you are studying the water in your bowl, Your subconcious will take over and you will begin to notice a change in the movement of the wax. From their you begin to read your impressions.
Pray beads are also a form of quartrains, the movement around the beads allow you to repeat the quartain and release your magical mind. A felling of calm always swirles it way into my charks and a sence of lightness developes, ask you questions and allow the wax and the water to speak to your subconcious mind.
example of a scurry of a quatrain, remember that a quatrain of your own is much more powerful to release your seeing ability.
Book of Shadows, Book of lig bide with me this dark moon light, Magicks, charms and witches dreams All sacred. Blessed Be
Bend me, shape me, make me fluid, As accomplished as a Druid, Inner secrets, hshadow athin. In be out and out be in.
By light of sun, the charm;s begun. By dark of night the spell is right Goddess guide my way this hour lend your daughter witches power.
Each candle I burn tonight releases bad that cause blight Bid me walk the patach of light
Feeling now calm to quite..
I would then select one line to repeat over and over in my quaetrain...
" Bid me walk the patch of light.Feeling now of calm to quite."
Any line that appeals to you and your subconcious.
In closing I would like to mention Video number 8 has been uploaded For The Seed Journal Project from Milliande Art Community for Women.
You can jump in at any point from Video number to present. If, you enjoy art journaling...this is the place.
I will be reviewing a book for Art Journaling in a few days. I would name the book, but in the clearing and cleaning of my studio, I cannot find it! But, I will!
Also I have just recieved a shipment of dry watercolor pigments from a company here in the South west called Earth Pigments . I like to use dry pigments as mixing for unique colors and beauty of intensity of the dry pigments. Mixed with a binding medium for watercolors. I had been useing dry pigments from DIck Blicks, and could not justify Indigo for the cost of $85.00 a jar .. I would pine over this item and sigh....no...not now. And as the pigments were in such large amounts I was limited to selections due to the high cost of each jar.
When I was told about Earth Pigments and went to their on line shop, I was delighted to see the pigments were sold in small amounts for as little as $3.There selections are vast and I found an intro kit Introductory French Pigment Set for $28.95 plus $5.22 shipping..(I used to pay $30.00 to $40.00 for one large jar ....one color!
They are very generous jars and in this into the selection is glorious. TWELVE JARS!
If, like myself you like working with dry pigments skip on over to Earth Pigments and
view their entire line of types and shop to your hearts content..I know I will be returning again and again!
P.O. Box 1172 Cortaro, Arizona
So in closing
May the light shine through you on the Candlemas Night, fulfilling your life with thoughts of life.
Kindness give return to the, three by three folds to the.
Wishing everyone a Happy Night and glorious tomorrow
May you walk in the moonlight till the wind sets you free.
