Real/Given Name: Lisa Joy [insert last name here]
Craft Name (Optional): ~*~ NONE ~*~ ... yet.
Where In The World You Live: Right here. *waves from her couch* Oh wait, you want a city? Hamilton. Ontario.
Specific Path or Path of Interest: IndoPaganism (ie Hinduism + Paganism)
Religious/Spiritual Background: Dad was in a seminary until his father passed away, then he dropped out ... he's from a strict Irish Catholic family. Mom's fam was never religious, and she had some really bad experience with Christian groups a few years prior to my birth. I grew up in a Chrisitan (United) church - I found paganism when I was 14, but continued to attend the church with my parents until I was in college. This was mainly out of respect for my parents & their beliefs.
Type of Pagan Practice: (solitary or coven) Solitary, mostly - but my sister witch hosts rituals in her home, and a bunch of us get together to do that.
Types of Divination Practiced: Tarot, and soon to be runes!
Element: Fiiiiiiiire. *evil giggle*
Sacred Stone(s): Moonstone
Spirit Animal(s)/Familiar(s): Cats - my familiar is my Minou, a 7 y/o orange tabby. If you've ever wanted a cat who loves everyone & everything ... TOUGH! I got him. ;)

Friends? Wanna be my friend? ;) I'm a goofball, REALLY.

7:31 pm - To all traditional witches and pagans:

buxen_wyrd
I have been reading this book and wanted to tell you guys about it:
To all traditional witches and pagans:


I just found this out, and I don't know if you guys
know it yet, but the Second Edition of Robin
Artisson's book "The Witching Way of the Hollow Hill"
is now available! And it's better than ever! Please
check out these links:


Updated Preview Site:
http://www.robinartisson.com/preview1.html


Updated Online Store page:
http://www.cafepress.com/owlblink


Direct link to the updated Bookstore with second
edition books, much cheaper than the first edition
http://www.cafepress.com/owlblink/1182150


Direct link where you can see the new Second Edition
cover- there's four to choose from now!
http://www.cafepress.com/owlblink.46719196

The new fourth cover is awesome. The book has been
professionally edited, expanded with new material and

But that's not all. According to the preview site,
anyone who buys the second edition will be allowed to

8:37 pm - Hello

lost_in_fire
Hey, I'm wondering, does anybody have any clue about incantations and such? I was wondering whether or not you'd tell me if this is a good format or if there's a better one.

Incantation: An willing of the self to preform some task.
[Tell the purpose]
[The results that are wished]
[A limitation on it if any]
[A proper ending/sealing]

Invocation: Asking a diety of some sort for a granting of a wish.
[Calling the entities]
[The results being asked]
[A limitation if any]
[A proper thanking and sealing]

Evocation: Forcing a demon/spirit with threat of divine retrobution
[A summoning of entities]
[What is being forced from entity]
[A limitation if any]
[The threat, and devine retrobution if demands are not met]
[Banishing]

Also, I was wondering if anyone else has been studying the Lesser Key of Solomon, or anything that has to do with bindings of spirits/ willed elementals. I am curious because I think me and a friend may have accidently either unsealed something, or brought it forth out of fear(elemental). If you have any idea, please either contact me threw my Deadjournal(Username: Nearlyforgotten) or Aim(Username: Daeg White) Thanx!

1:18 pm - Hello.

lost_in_fire
So, I've been searching around a bit, looking for some online group to help me. Almost anything that i have studied, or anything that anyone has told me, has pointed me towards finding out as much as I can at this time in my life. I know I am not ready for alot of the things that I would like to learn, like the Book of Solomon, the Goetics, and all those Grimores. But I can't help it, I have already the first 3 chapters from the Lesser Key, and I have been working on many other things at the same time.

I was wondering, what should I do? Should I continue trying this, or should I step back. I am not initiated yet, but that is of my own choice, I have been studying for a while, and I have only just now read my first rites, and have began my year and a day. It's not like I am a complete beginner, I know my herbs and stones, love working with runes and sigils, and have been studying all the moon phases, planetary hours, and have already the beginnings of my initial tools(Bolin, Athame, BOS, Censer, ect..).

If you have any answers, would be interested in working with me, or just want to talk, my Deadjournal(what I use more often) address is www.deadjournal.com/users/nearlyforgotten. All I want is to learn, and to help learn. Blessed be.

Forget not the days of old
And recall the stories told
Of the burnings and the screams
Do they ever haunt your dreams?
There was a time when freedom died
It was an age of genocide
The Inquisition at the door
The Church of Rome in a holy war
They broke children on the wheel
In the madness of their zeal
In the shadow of their wake
The innocent burning at the stake
Children resist a return to the burning times
People be wise to the power of their lies
Be not fooled as those who were fooled before
Children, oh children, be free, be wild
They came to bring the Ñgood news'
To burn witches, pagans, Jews
Said they were the Shepherd's sheep
Whipped old women through the streets
Then the turning of the tide
>From the truth they could not hide
Now the darkest age has passed
The Goddess has returned at last

5:56 am - greetings

blantoncirith
Well I'm new here; was referred by the lovely Moderator. I'm not really a practicing Wiccan, I just have a firm faith in most of their beliefs. For example, all the references to nature. I have felt a strong connection to nature for a while now, and feel as if there's something behind it, some greater force or being... which leads me to my beliefs on there being one Creator for all. He (not specifying gender, for its beyond us to understand. Merely using that particular pronoun for lack of a better word) caters to whatever religion people may use towards him, whether it be Catholicism, Hunduism, Islam, Protestant Christianity, or whatever other religion; even non-monotheistic types. What most people fail to see is that there isn't one all-mighty and true religion because humans created religion and religious ideals in the first place. We don't know. And we can't just believe what's fed to us. We must go with what we feel in our hearts to be true. And that is something else I admire about Wicca beliefs: everyone seems to go with what they feel in their hearts and what they are revealed by nature. Earth gives such beauty, such brilliance that none of us could ever understand, and how Wiccans appreciate and cherish it with their lives is exactly how I feel about it. The way society burns and ruins and tears apart nature in favor of some form of concrete fantasy... honestly, i don’t see how they could do it whole-heartedly.

I also am in favor of a more magical sense to life. All kinds of magic exist.. but it’s not the kind that is shown in movies. I feel as though the magic is within us and can be drawn out only if we let it. Humans are capable of such beautiful dreams and such horrible nightmares; where do you think they come from? And how are they possibly flashing before our eyes? It seems more of our inner spirirt showing us things that are important to us, things that we should see or want to see, and things that we may desire. for example, I often dream about the most beautiful forest I’ve ever seen with a small calm river and with a lavender-colored sky (may have been a perpetual-sunset sort of scene. not certain. but it sure seemed like it). This is because I yearn for such a place, and this sort of thing does not exist anywhere on earth. But yet, it seems, nature could form such a place perhaps in a paradise not of this world (an afterlfe where everything starts over. no society to mess things up) because all there was was nature... no manmade flaws and destructions (except for perhaps a small rowing boat of an exotic shape).

That’s what I mean, though. That’s the type of magic that exists (to my reckoning): the magic inside us that let’s us see such beautiful things and frightening things at the same time. It is our own magic. It lets us imagine and it takes us farther than where we are now. When this magic fills you completely (perhap meditation or deep reflection or perhaps even thinking while staring off into the sunset beneath a tree) you get a soaring feeling of peace and serenity 9atleast when i do it) and that is the magic of peace flowing from us. It’s what we want. It’s what we desire. But we can’t always have it; the magic gives it to us, and in the end it will be our own magic that will give us the ultimate paradise after death; the place where we can be in perfect harmony and happiness for the rest of eternity. eh, I’m not leaving the Creator out of all this. Ofcourse not. He is at the top of everything. Where do you think such magic would come from? Where do you think the spirits of nature come from? Such beauty is not devised out of thin air you know, but then where would the air come from then? You see, the Creator is necesary. SideNote: I’m aware that some (I say ‘some’ because I’m not sure if this goes for everyone in the Wiccan circle. no pun intended) believe that the goddess (the moon) is what controls what i just mentioned. The Creator I speak of and this are equivalents; interchangeable. It’s just my perception of the power behind the moon. Please don’t be offended.

This higher being (the Creator) I spoke of coincides with Wicca’s beliefs on the “supernatural” perfectly: a higher force, or depth of power far greater than is apparent to the average person.



I wrote this about a year and a half ago on an older website of mine and thought I’d share it with you. It’s more of an essay than anything else (I write lots of religious-based essays. Helps me to straighten out my thoughts). If you’d like to read it, then by all means click below. If not, I have used the LJ cut tag to save space on people’s friend lists.

Read more...Collapse )

Now, almost two years later, I have thankfully thrown out any belief-system others expected me to have in favor of what I feel is right, which is a much more worthy cause than merely believing something because you’re told to. I have openly admitted to my beliefs and stand firmly now behind them. I could not before because I knew not what those beliefs were. But over the past year, I have come to terms with my inner self and discovered, through reflections, self-revelations, and lots and lots of writing out my thoughts what I truly believe to be right. Though I will not say it is the “true and only way” because then I would be a hypocrite. No one knows the way, but the beliefs I have are more inclusive of everything and make a whole lot more sense than alot of the ideals out there. Though I have not explained all my beliefs in this entry, for that would take a whole book to explain in its entirety, I have discussed some basic ideas about nature and magic in relation to Wicca ideals that inspired me and brought me to what I believe today. I still cherish and truly believe the listed ideals in that essay from the link (I think I found some and changed them into the third person from Ravon’s site. I don’t have the link handy, nor do I remember it. She makes beautiful art though :p) and will hold them close to my heart, thankful for the changes Wiccan ideals have made to my life these past 2 years.

9:25 pm - Revelations Through Strange Mediums

darkangelsgirl


Your magical style is Priestess.

What type of Magic do you work?. Take the Magical Style Quiz by Paradox



I decided to place the results of this test in here simply because I saw the answer as a beautiful and true thing, not because I want to cheapen this Grimoire in any way. I actually think this, of all the tests I have taken on-line, was the most comprehensive. There were many good choices after every simple question. I was impressed.

12:03 pm - Godesses of the Dead

darkangelsgirl
Egypt

Nephthys
(Greek form; Egyptian Neb-hut, Nebthet)

"Mistress of the House". Egyptian goddess of the dead. Daughter of Geb and Nut. Sister of Isis, Osiris and Seth. According to one tradition, she was also the mother of Anubis by Osiris. Her principal sanctuary was at Heliopolis. Along with Isis, she was one of the guardians of the corpse of Osiris. Depicted in human form wearing a crown in the form of the hieroglyph for house. Sometimes depicted as a kite guarding funeral bier of Osiris.

Isis
(Aset, Eset)

"Throne". Egyptian mother goddess. Daughter of Geb and Nut according to the Heliopolitan genealogy. Sister and wife of Osiris. Mother of Hours. She was depicted in human form, crowned either by a throne or by cow horns enclosing a sun disk. A vulture was also sometimes incorporated in her crown. She is sometimes depicted as a kite above the mummified body of Osiris. As the personification of the throne, she was an important source of the pharaoh's power. Her cult was popular throughout Egypt, but the most important sanctuaries were at Giza and at Behbeit El-Hagar in the Nile delta. Isis later had an important cult in the Greco-Roman world, with sanctuaries at Delos and Pompeii. Her Latin epithet was Stella Maris, or "star of the sea".

It was Isis who retrieved and reassembled the body of Osiris after his murder and dismemberment by Seth. In this connection she took on the role of a goddess of the dead and of funeral rites. Isis impregnated herself from the corpse and subsequently gave birth to Hours. She gave birth in secrecy at Khemmis in the Nile delta and hid the child from Seth in the papyrus swamps. Hours later defeated Seth and became the first ruler of a united Egypt. Isis, as mother of Hours, was by extension regarded as the mother and protectress of the pharaohs. The relationship between Isis and Hours may also have influenced the Christian conception of the relationship between Mary and the infant Jesus Christ. The depiction of the seated holding or suckling the child Hours is certainly reminiscent of the iconography of Mary and Jesus.

Hathor
Lady of heaven.

Cult Center: Dendera and throughout Egypt


Attributes: .Because her worship stretches back to pre-dynastic times, we find Hathor identified with many local goddesses, and it can be said that all the goddesses were forms of Hathor. At times we find her playing the role of a sky-goddess, a sun-goddess, a moon-goddess, a goddess of the east, a goddess of the west, a goddess of moisture, a goddess of fertility, an agricultural goddess, and a goddess of the underworld.
. . . . .Hathor was the goddess of joy, motherhood, and love. She was considered the protectress of pregnant women and a midwife. She was the patron of all women, no matter their station in life. As the goddess of music and dancing her symbol was the sistrum. As a fertility goddess and a goddess of moisture, Hathor was associated with the inundation of the Nile. In this aspect she was associated with the Dog-star Sothis whose rising above the horizon heralded the annual flooding of the Nile. In the legend of Ra and Hathor she is called the "Eye of Ra."

. . . . .In later times, when the Osiris cults gained popularity, her role changed. She now welcomed the arrival of the deceased to the underworld, dispensing water to the souls of the dead from the branches of a sycamore and offering them food. Hathor was also represented as a cow suckling the soul of the dead, thus giving them sustenance during their mummification, their journey to the judgment hall, and the weighing of their soul. In the Late Period, dead women identified themselves with Hathor, as men identified with Osiris. . . . . .

Representation: Hathor was originally worshipped in the form of a cow, sometimes as a cow with stars on her. Later she is represented as a woman with the head of a cow, and finally with a human head, the face broad and placid, sometimes she is depicted with the ears or horns of a cow. She is also shown with a head-dress resembling a pair of horns with the moon-disk between them. Sometimes she is met with in the form of a cow standing in a boat, surrounded by tall papyrus reeds. As the "Mistress of the Necropolis" she is shown as the head of a cow protruding from a mountainside. In this case she wears a menat necklace, which is a symbol of rebirth.

Relations: Daughter of Nut and Ra. Wife of Ra, mother of Ihy. Many legends portray her as the mother of Hours the Elder. Other as the wife of Hours of Edfu, The fruit of this union was Hours the Younger .
__________
The Celts

Cerridwen (Wales) Moon Goddess, Great Mother. Death, fertility, regeneration, inspiration, magic, astrology, herbs, science, poetry, spells, knowledge.

Don/Donmu (Ireland, Wales) Queen of the Heavens, Goddess of sea and air. Equivalent of the Irish Danu--(sometimes called a God and Goddess). In Ireland, Don ruled over the land of the Dead.

Macha (Ireland) Mother of Life and Death, a war Goddess.

The Morrigu, Morrigan (Ireland, Wales, and Britain) Supreme War Goddess, Specter Queen, shape shifter. Reigned over the battle field, not joining in, but using her magick. Goddess of war, fate, and death.

White Lady (known to all Celtic countries) Dryad of Death, Queen of the Dead.
__________
Nordic

The Norns (Urd, Verdande, and Skuld), are the Norse equivalent of the Greek Fates. It is they who determine the orlogs (destinies) of the Gods and of Man, and who maintain the World Tree, Yggdrasil.

The goddess of the dead and the afterlife was Hel (Holle, Hulda), and was portrayed by the Vikings as being half-dead, half alive herself. The Vikings viewed her with considerable trepidation. The Dutch, Gallic, and German barbarians viewed her with some beneficence, more of a gentler form of death and transformation. She is seen by them as Mother Holle; a being of pure Nature, being helpful in times of need, but vengeful upon those who cross her or transgress natural law.

10:41 pm - Chant/spell to find a familiar

wychboy
I used this a few years back to try and find a suitable magic partner. I did - I got my ferret :)

Prepare in your normal way :)
Special requirements - some animal related objects - could be images, feathers, bits of fur, statues. Anything at all. These are to help you focus on the parts of you linked to animals - to find an animal linked to you.

The chant

Goddess of the earth and sky
Hearken now and hear my cry
Bring a familiar to me
By my powers - blessed be

A dog, a cat, rabbit or hare
what its form i do not care
Bring a partner now to me
As I will - So Mote It Be!

I repeated this for three nights, focussing mainly on feathers that i had collected - i let a feather be carried away on the wind each night. After a month, i got my lil bundle of joy - my ferret, phoebe :)

"Eostara, the Vernal Equinox. Once again the sun is over the equator and day and night are equal. The light ascendeth as the wheel of the year turneth. Now is the time for letting go of the darkness and limitations and looking toward the light and finding new strengths. May the light illumine my path and give me strength to overcome limitations. I welcome the elements into my Sacred Circle
to help ward this space for a time"
 
"(face East) Hail East! Power of Air
Thou who knowest the time of morning, dawn.
Bring me thy gift of passion and join me in my Sacred Circle
that I may see the vision of my path ahead and strive to walk it.
Welcome East (lift candle and replace it) Blessed Be!"
 
Offer a flower to East now.

(Dye boiled eggs in the center of the circle. The water

Imagine your life and love life, work and social life exactly as you want it and send these thoughts out into the heavens to be recieved by the God and Goddess as a supplication. Now, quietly draw the representation of your tailisman on the eggs. The quiet is essential to keeping the mood of the meditation.)
