Protection and Purification Chants
Miss Tink flowers

These are Chants for Protection and Purification.  The first one is by Scott Cunningham and is for Protection:
Thrice around the Circle's bound, Evil sink into the ground.  Very, very effective.   I don't know who wrote the second chant, but it is for Purication of your home.  You need some sage to burn or copal to burn on a charcoal brick.  Light the incense and walk around your home saying the following chant over and over:  May the log burn, May the Wheel turn, May evil spurn, May the Sun return.  I just did the Purification chant for my home and it feels so good in here.

Bright Blessings.

Drum Circle

Tonight, Bill and I are doing a ritual of drumming and dancing, in the African tradition.  We get together every Monday night to do this and we love it.  I don't dance (I walk with a walker), but the drumming totally soothes and uplifts me and touches me at a soul-deep level.  It is a great way to connect with Spirit, whatever or whoever you perceive Spirit to be.  I attend the Center for Spiritual Living in Graham, NC and Bill and I started a drumming circle there and it is great fun.  I have become the default leader and what I do is start the basic rhythm and everybody else just drums as Spirit moves them.  And what is cool is that it makes a coherent, beautiful sound even though we are playing as we are moved to play.  There is no set pattern to follow and everybody expresses themselves with the instruments differently.  What is really great about the Center for Spiritual Living is that it accepts any positive path you follow to honor Mother God/Father God/Spirit, even Wicca.  I have bad mood swings and drumming has definitely helped that.  My moods have been much more stable since I began, and I am so glad to find a non-medicinal way to help with this.  I can't emphasize enough how wonderful drumming is for your physical, emotional, and spiritual health and well being.  I totally honor Mother God/Goddess when I play and I feel really fortunate that I was introduced to this whole thing.  Blessed Be to all my friends and to anyone who reads this.

Singing, Dancing & Drumming

Yesterday, Bill and I performed the most beautiful ritual.  We decorated the alter with candles, pictures and icons, and other personal items that held special significance to each of us.  We listened to a CD of African songs and drumming to which we danced and sang for almost an hour.  What an amazing spiritual experience!  We have done trance work in our Native American Shamanic rituals and this is the state we achieved during our dancing.  It is such an uplifting and freeing feeling to "lose" yourself in the moment of honoring Spirit.  Alafia!
 


Tarot Reading for 1/24/11
Miss Tink flowers
aunt_magick
I did a daily reading with my Crow's Magickal Tarot deck.  My question was this:  Tell me about my current and near-future money situation.  I asked this because I have managed to screw up my finances this month so badly that I am having to get help from my anam cara/soul mate, Bill.  So here's my reading.

1) Present Situation:  VI The Lovers.  Twin-Souls. Reverence. Unadulterated love.  Trustful relationship.  This is totally referring to Bill and the fact that I am surrounded and filled with his love for me and because of that I know that I can always ask for help and he will.

2) What surrounds you/Outside Influence:  4 of Swords.  Restore. Rejuvenate.  Designing inner peace.  This says to me not to worry; rather, work on my meditation and trance work to restore my inner peace.  Only then can I handle the challenges that face me.

3)  Myself:  Queen of Pentacles (pentacles deal with money and material things):  Bliss, Comfort.  Enjoying the blessings you have.  Taking time for yourself.  Stop thinking about what I don't have and focus on what I do have.  Also, stop trying to carry everybody's burdens--remember that I need help sometimes, too.

4)  Final Outcome/Result:  XVII The Star:  Hope.  Astrological compatibility/chemistry.  (another reference to my anam cara).  A branch of knowledge chosen to be incorporated in your ideas of evolving.  I have chosen to study the metaphysical realm to help my spiritual development.  I am fascinated by Earth Religions and practice some parts of many of them, all for the purpose to improve the quality of my life and that of others.  So I use the knowledge that I have gained (i.e. magick, drumming, making ebbo to my Orisha, reading inspiring works) to draw what I need to me and to remember to never give up hope.  The Law of Attraction works.

I Sorrow Not

My Anam Cara, Bill, and I had a beautiful Yule ritual on 12/21.  This is from a Wiccan ritual written by the late Scott Cunningham and I just love this first part:  I sorrow not, though the world is wrapped in sleep.  I sorrow not, though the icy winds blast.  I sorrow not, though the snow falls hard and deep.  I sorrow not; this too shall soon be past.  This has been a sorrowful and angry year for me, but these words lifted my spirits like nothing else has and I resolve to live my life by them.  What's the point in being so negative?  For 2011, I promise to be good to myself and to think good of myself so that I can do both for others.  

I Sorrow Not!

What happened to separation of church and state?
Miss Tink flowers

I was at a party last night put on by a government agency and almost the entire entertainment for the night consisted of gospel songs and sometimes, even some preaching.  One woman asked for all the Christians in the group to raise their hands.  Needless to say, neither Bill (my kindred spirit) nor I did.  I just think it is so wrong to assume that everybody is a Christian, and to ask a group that question is totally inappropriate IMHO.  What happened to freedom of religion and separation of church and state???  Our country was founded upon that premise and it truly annoys me when people act like there is only one legitimate religion in America. 

The Sentinel fandom and fanfic

I just read alyjude's email regarding the "Dead Sentinel Fandom"  and it has really struck a chord with me.  For over 10 years I have been enjoying the works of great authors in that fandom and have contributed very little fanfic myself, other than my short time on the Sentinel Angst List (a long time ago).  So I am going to try and start writing again for Jim and Blair, 2 of my all time favorite characters to read and write for.  Hopefully it won't be long before I get a story posted--I am just waiting for the inspiration to hit me, which is how I always used to write my stories.  Anyway,  looking forward to getting back into the fandom again.  Long live Jim and Blair!
