Chapter One

1. In the beginning was the Light and all things that were, are,and shall be were in the Light. The Light is The Creators, our God and Goddess.

2. And the Light said, Let there be life, and the reverberating vibrations of Their voices caused the creation of the universes.

3. And the worlds were created and in them were the elements of life; fire, water, air and earth. And the evolution of life began. This was the beginning of ages and cycles of ages.

4. And within the Light were every soul of every creature great and small, and these souls are the Children of the Light.

5. And the Light said, We shall send Our Children out and they shall live, love, learn, and experience as they begin their journey.

6. They shall seek to become Perfect, just as We are Perfect.

7. The Light said, When they have become Perfect, they shall return unto Us and We shall receive them in unto Us.

8. And they shall be likened unto Us, and then if they desire, they shall go no more out.

9. And in the attainment of this Divine Perfection, We shall give to Our Children those things that they need to fulfill the journey.

10. There should not be put upon them more than they can endure.

11. Should they not attain this Perfection in one life, We shall give them another. But between these lives, they shall rest and learn…

12. Study their mistakes and the lessons from the previous lives.

13. Should they require ten lives, We shall give it to them for the attainment of Perfection.

14. Should they require seventy lives, We shall give it to them.

15. Should they require one hundred and twenty-five lives, We shall give it.

16. It matters not to Us how many lives that We should give to them as long as they do return to Us.

17. For We send Our Children out and We shall not lose one of them. For they are Our Children.

18. Love from love, Light from Light, We love them and not one shall be lost.

Chapter Two

1. In the beginning there was the Light and all things that have been, are, and shall be were in the Light.

2. Every soul that exists now existed then and the Light wished that each and every soul would go out, become perfect, live, love, and experience and then return of their own free will to Them.

3. And the Light said, We shall send them out, who shall be the first?

4. And I, the Lady Danu, an humble child, one of the First Born, stepped before Them and said, Allow me. If I fail, it will be nothing as long as You reach out and take me by the hand to bring me back into Yourselves, Great Mother and Father.

5. Then They said, Go, and I went into the void and it was cold and I knew from the beginning that my voyage and everything I knew, every word and deed, would bring me again back to the Light.

6. That I should do nothing that would make me fail this task.

Chapter Three

1. Therefore, I left the Light and felt the cold, the loneliness. And the lights of the world could not begin to shine as brightly and joyfully as the Light of Lights.

2. I had only known the comforts of the Father and the Mother, the Light, being in Their presence, knowing Their love and Their peace.

3. Therefore, I went down and took a body and through these incarnations I came to feel good and bad, to know suffering and pain, to feel the bite and sting of the serpent and scorpion.

4. I came to know sickness and disease, feel the pangs of hunger and the exhaustion of labor. I experienced all manner of life in these incarnations.

5. I came to understand time and age and the body’s vulnerability to them. And in this way, lived a lifetime of years, and my spiritual and physical evolution began.

6. And my Father and Mother, the Light, looked down upon me and seeing my pain and suffering said, This is enough.

7. We will not allow Our Children to remain in this body and suffer beyond their strength.

8. Then They said to me, Come, We will make for you a realm where you will find peace and comfort and where you may study and come to understand the experiences of this life and We will place this realm between Ourselves and these worlds.

9. We shall not let Our Children suffer beyond their means in one life, nor evolve through several lives without rest. Therefore shall they live, learn, and experience for a time and then seek the comfort of this realm before continuing the attainment of Perfection.

10. Therefore shall the souls leave their bodies to seek rest and comfort and to seek understanding that they may attain a higher perfection in their next life.

11. Therefore, I, the Lady Danu, left the body and entered the realm of comfort that the Light had created for me.

12. This was the beginning for us all.

13. Soon thereafter my second journey began, not as my first alone, but with a second spark who would come to be my consort who has been known as Pan, ….Bel.., ..Belize…..

14. And together we would change as the evolution of life continued.

Chapter Four

1. The Mother and Father of all Life said, Our Children shall experience all manner of living and learning.

2. There will be nothing that they shall not experience.

3. For it is only in experiencing all these lives in every manner thereof that they shall grow and attain spiritual Perfection.

4. We are the Light, yet it is only through Our Children that We see Our own Light.

5. What they experience, We experience, what they suffer, We suffer.

6. They take Us with them and they are the sparks of Our essence and Our power.

7. In the world they should not hide this Light that the Light shall shine through them to the others, as a constant reminder of their origin.

8. They shall know that they are the Children of the Light, and the sons and daughters of the Gods and Goddesses.

9. The first one hundred sparks to leave us shall be called the First Born, these shall be Gods and Goddesses to those that follow.

Chapter Five

1. Within the Light there are masculine aspects and feminine aspects.

2. The Light is the greatest of the deities, the Creator, The All One.

3. Yet It is Two, even so, It is One.

4. This is the First, This is the Creator.

5. The Absolute Deity in both aspects.

6. This is the Great Mother and Great Father of All Life.

7. And from the Light came the First Born and these First Born Sparks went out from the Light, life forms developed and the evolution of life slowed after a time within cycles of ages.

8. Thereafter, They became Perfect and returned unto the Light.

9. They, the First Born, we know as Gods and Goddesses, The Lords and Ladies of the Light.

10. They are known to us by many names, including: Adonis; Aida-Wedo; Ammut; Amun; Aphrodite; Apollo; Artemis; Astarte; Bacchus; Barron Samedhi; Bast; Brigantia; Buddha; Cernunnos; Cerridwin; Chiron; Coventina; Damballah;

11. Danu; Diana; Dionysus; Durga; Enlil; Erzulie; Freya; Gwydion; Gwynn Ap Nudd; Hera; Hermes; Horus; Isis; Jesus; Junos; Kali-Ma; Krishna; Maha-Lakshmi; Marduk; Min; Morrigu; Mut; Nekhbet; Nergal; Odin; Osiris; Pan; Papa-Legba; Priapus; Ra; Sekhmet; Shiva; Tammuz; Thoth; Thor; Venus; Vishnu; Woden; Zeus; The Crone, and many others.

12. These Lords and Ladies, Gods and Goddesses all, shall remain until the end of this Cycle of Light.

13. When the last of the children of these ages return unto the Light…

14. Then shall the Lords and Ladies, the Gods and Goddesses, of this Cycle of Light also return for their rest and their reward.

15. It is their decision to remain in the Light of Lights or to return in the new cycle as Gods and Goddesses for that new age.

16. And all sparks left the Light and the Light became the sum total of the individual sparks.

17. Therefore, the sparks are the Light; the Light being within each individual spark. And only when all sparks attain Perfection shall the Light be made whole again.

18. For we are the Light, Gods and Goddesses, the Creators. And the Light shall not be whole until each spark returns to Perfection, which is their origin.

Chapter Six

1. Although all souls have issued from the Light, each has its own separate identity.

2. Each an individual with its own paths.

3. Therefore, let there be no condemnation from one soul to the other that they judge one another in their paths in their chosen identities.

4. For each soul must learn a lesson and experience new things.

5. What is right for one soul may not necessarily be right for another at the present time.

6. Therefore, let all souls feel free to experience and live as is needed in their attainment to Divine Perfection.

7. Each individual must follow the path that is best for them lest experiences be lost and times be wasted by following after the attained experiences others have set before them.

Chapter Seven

1. During these lives, Our Children may honor Us.

2. They shall burn incense and speak words of their hearts and We shall hear Our Children.

3. We shall watch them and know they are attaining the Perfection that they require to return unto Us.

4. They shall in no means destroy blood life to burn as sacrifices unto Us.

5. They shall take no blood life to give to Us in any manner.

6. No, there shall be no blood sacrifices, but only the sacrifice of herb and incense.

7. The sacrifice that We enjoy most is one of seeing karmic harmony and life being lived well, not the taking of life, nor the letting of blood.

8. Therefore, you shall burn no sacrifice of blood nor creature unto Us, nor offer sacrifice of blood or life.

9. For Our sacrifice is that We must send Our children away from Us that they may attain Perfection. 10. As Our will, so be it.

Chapter Eight

1. Our Children are love and Light and they know what they need in the attainment of Perfection, for they carry with them Our essence and Our knowledge of what must be attained.

2. They have free choice and free will in the experiences and the attainment of this Perfection.

3. And the whole of the law is this,

4. An ye harm none, do what ye will.

5. All of the laws are summed up in this.

6. Again We say, An ye harm none, do what ye will.

7. For this is the path of love and Light, that you harm none.

8. We are love and Light.

9. Love is the law and love is the bond.

10. And when you have needs, speak unto the Gods and Goddesses and ask what you will.

11. Should the requests not hinder your karma or the karma of others, nor change it in any way,

12. And if you have no doubt and send forth your Light and your vibrations, and your receptive influences…

13. Directing them to do your will, they shall help you to achieve your goal…

14. If they do not go against your karmic wheel, nor cause a falling away of the goals and tasks set by you prior to your incarnation into this life.

15. And We send Our Children out not empty, but they carry with them Our Light and Our love and all this power is given to them that they may go out and experience, live, love, and learn.

16. And these powers are theirs to use if they will upon each path.

17. And Our Children, they know Our way and they should seek to travel those paths which will bring them to Perfection.

18. Knowing that they shall return unto Us.

Chapter Nine

1. There are some souls who upon their journeys tend to forget the serenity and love, the comfort and fulfillment and perfection they had in the Light.

2. And that to the Light they should return for Perfect peace, love, and harmony throughout eternity.

3. These distressed souls We at times call malicious ones.

4. For some of them do tend to take that path.

5. In the attainment of Perfection, let us not forget from whence we came.

6. Let us not forget that for which we strive.

7. Let there be no taking of life unnecessarily.

8. Let there be no wickedness that your thought, word, or deed should harm another.

9. For every soul is precious to Us and We would have none of Our Children come to harm by the hands of another of Our Children.

10. Therefore, do not move in wickedness to perform the things that would cause harm or injury to another of Our Children.

11. But instead, move upon your paths in love.

12. For in this path is Perfect Light, in this path you will attain joy and Perfection.

13. Therefore, seek to do good among the Children of the Light, your brothers and sisters, and should you see them at the side in pain and suffering…

14. Receive them into your heart, lift them up and in this way, karma shall be satisfied.

Chapter Ten

1. And the Child of the Light you have helped along the way may repay this karma, lifting you up when you are down in pain and suffering.

2. The karmic wheel of life is forever turning, ever just in its way.

3. Therefore, do not allow yourself to worry and to wonder over the things of this life that you may or may not have.

4. For in past lives, you may have had them.

5. Or in future lives you may attain them.

6. Find peace in what you have or have not yet attained. For in this, you may achieve a goal you set for yourself to reach prior to this incarnation.

7. And do not worry yourself of the body that you now live in. For you yourself have chosen every aspect of this life, even to the body you now use, for the fulfillment of your personal karma, and many times, for the payment of a karmic debt.

8. Therefore find peace in all these things and joy in the knowledge that your karma is being fulfilled and you are rising to higher levels of Perfection.

9. There is no true happiness, no fulfillment and completion of being until one has walked into the Light, attaining Divine Perfection. Being One with the Light is the only true source of joy and fulfillment.

10. These words are true and old and have been written by the Light of Lights.

11. They have existed since the beginning of time.

9/22/10 Mabon Ritual

 

9/22/10 MABON/AUTUMNAL EQUINOX

Tonight’s entry is inspired by today’s celebration of Mabon-Autumnal Equinox.

As I feel this particular Sabbat is cleansing for me and truth seeking, I decided for my ritual to cleanse my tarot decks followed with an outside ritual in the moonlight.

My tarot decks have powerful strength to me and I hope to work better with them in the future so since that is a big part of me, I wanted to cleanse them and start fresh.

After cleansing my deck, I did reading off all three of my decks and my only statement was SHOW ME MY TRUTH. The cards never disappointing did.

The first card I pulled was from my Soul Card deck that one of my spirit sisters gave me as a gift. The card that was pulled was what I refer to as Mother Nature card . It’s a picture of a lady in the earth with roots growing from her hands to a tree. My message in this is:

Keep true to myself

Follow the earth path

The second reading I did was with my Divine Tarot deck

I pulled a 3 card spread which I will refer to as Past, Present and Future as this is what felt right to me.

PAST

Ace of Swords

PRESENT

Knight of Swords

FUTURE

QUEEN OF WANDS

My message,

Obstacles in my path

mental clutter or just physical or mental blocks

Sharp mind needed, act forcefully on my beliefs, fierce willed, and clever.

Idealistic was also in there, I think that is what I am

Independent mind who wants things on her own terms. Can make the deepest wishes come true or destroy them if crossed. Your dreams or nightmares fulfilled whichever way the mind decides to turn to.

Last but not least, my reading with Faerie Oracle deck. The one that speaks always true to me.

Fee Lion

the Laume

Singer of Chalice

The Master Maker

My message:

Duties unfulfilled-get rid of mental clutter

Give to others freely and generously to get rid of blockage

Random acts of kindness shared with others.

Healing, hope, patience, be open if you don’t know how to be open, ask.

Teaching ones craft to others. Make sure to do your very best work. Use the knowledge you are given to do this.

So do you see a common theme here? So after I did this, I decided to go outside and feel the earth and bathe in the moonlight. I just went outside in my underwear and shirt, no sky-clad as I live in a small town. I went outside sat on my blanket, as I sat bathing in the moonlight, I prayed to the Mother for cleansing and truth. I also prayed to help my family, immediate and extended. After that, I put my palms on the ground and feel the Mother’s energy fill me and the moonlight embrace me. Then I stood in the dew-filled grass barefoot and gave thanks to all the directions and then thanked the mother for giving me the strength to move forward on my path. In this time, I just chanted whatever came out of my mouth. It was just vocally no words.

After cleansing tears, I came in the house and kissed my hubby and petted all my fur-kids. As I listen to pagan chants, I write this. I hope this helps someone in a little way.

So moving onto my path now…..until the next Sabbat, the most powerful one.

Please read and write your thoughts down about this entry.

As always, thanks for reading

Until next time……

Inspiration 9/11/10

Inspiration

9/11/10

Inspiration is but a butterfly in my dreams right now..

but she flies ever so closely to me as visually and musically things are shown to me. She leads me ever so softly. I feel her touch on my hand. Just a memory now but walking closer still to me.

Secret Garden is the absolutely soul resonate to me right now..I’m doing a Secret garden mix now and that butterfly is in my stomach right now. Tears in my eyes…clarity is nearer as each day passes.

What do we all seek…clarity in everyday life and then you have the few who know clarity means so much more. My path with it’s twists and turns becomes straighter as each day passes. New things are shown to me and giving me wings to fly.

Spiritual by nature and soul, that’s me. I learn more about myself each day. I wonder if this is what ascendancy means. I feel urgency in these teachings.

We are moving into a new direction..a rebirth of sorts and a death of another. A way of life is changing and moving us closer to clarity.

Magic is all around us..but many have closed their eyes to it. The old ways come back to the few that are open to them. Peace or balance whatever you call it.

Music flows softly in my mind..visual pictures come to me slowly. The answers are closer to grasp. My mind is opening and expanding. Taking me back to who I used to be in another lifetime.

I hope that my friends make this journey with me. Open your minds and hearts see who and what you are supposed to be.

Every mind can be open…just gotta to believe in something tangible even if it is intangible right now.

I’ve met many friends along the way who share my passion…are they placed there by the universe? Are we drawn to one another towards some new goal? Many questions, not enough answers. Cryptic messages are shown and you need to open your eyes to see the truth of things.

My fingers type on this page but is it really me? Sometimes I wonder. Maybe it is me just another aspect of me. The teacher teaching the student or vice versa.

I feel such a creative energy within me right now. A floodgate being opened. The images and words flow freely in no discernible pattern. Glimpses of truth pour from my keyboard. I feel such a need to write everything down. The pen is full of ink and needs to be used. Is this how every writer feels?? Such an urgency. If you can’t write fast enough will it be lost?

Beauty is such a fickle thing. One’s version of beauty is different from another. Physical for others. What one finds as ugliness, I see as beauty. I know i’m not alone in seeing this. The broken souls find their way to me. Am I supposed to heal them? It’s hard to heal when you don’t know what you are doing.

But I digress. My fingers write and I bleed my soul onto this white page. I see this as an opportunity. Glass half full made full. What another sees as emptiness, I see whole. The knowledge I write makes sense to the people who know me. What you see as nonsense really makes sense if you open yourself up to it.

Ramblings and free flow is how I write best. A lot of times, I don’t even know what I write until I read it much later. A kind of auto writing. I open my mind as the music plays and purging of my soul commences.

I’m dancing inside to the music as it flows into my ears. Freeing my soul at last.

Tell me what inspires you. I really want to know. Don’t be afraid to write.

I hope to show my new and old friends, a glimpse into my soul. If it scares you, I’m sorry. If you want to join me on this journey, please email me or chat with me in any of the social mediums. I want people who share my passion for the spiritual truth that all elude us. Perhaps you will learn something new. Something that frees your soul. That is my goal to free people’s souls and connect them with their minds.

Until next time,

Earth.

9/11/10 Epiphany

9/10/10

Two blogs in one night..you should all feel special.

Inspiration is grasping me in her arms and hugging me tonight.

I’ve been listening to Celtic/Faerie Music tonight and it inspired me to write my earlier poem.

Do you ever have the feeling that you have knowledge right in your grasp and in blinding light you are thrust into an epiphany.

As many of you know, I’ve been struggling with my spiritual path for many years now…going one way and not finding my niche. Then suddenly things click and you feel as if you are back on your path. That’s me the past few months. First with the Norse connotations and they resonate within me. Now being led in the Celtic way…another piece in the jigsaw of my life. I’m going back to my roots in more ways than one. Some of my friends thoughts on this basically are…the answers you seek will be shown to you in time and they are in glimpses.. dreams, videos, pictures…anything can flick my switch and that is what I need. I’m tired of being stagnant and flaying along on my path. I want enlightenment and knowledge. I don’t want anymore cryptic messages. Show me solid pics and the universe has been throwing me slivers the last few months..urgency fills me at times. The ways of universe are preparing me for an ending and and a new beginning.

I know to some of you these scribblings will make no sense but the people who have walked with me on this path will find these make a weird kind of sense.

The “Old” ways are popping up more and more with things that I’m drawn to.

I’m not talking blood sacrifices and stuff. I’m talking about the natural witch path. Symbols and thoughts become clearer to me the closer I get to the right path. And I’m exhilarated and a little nervous for what the universe has in store for me.

So dance with me this crazy dance, walk with me this new walk…

learn from me as I learn from you.

Peace and balance,

Earth

The Encounter

Inspired by Nocturne by Secret Garden

The Encounter

Inspired by Nocturne by Secret Garden
The Encounter

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fd3a189vcVc

In the forest

a song..

a twinkling and laughter

the wind blows thru my hair

the smell of blossoms a prayer..

A light appears and then solidfies

I see a smile

a glowing face appears…

she holds out her hand as I walk towards her

a haunting melody plays

we move in time with one another…

a peace fills me…

I dance as the wind blows..

my skirt behind me…

I get caught up in the music
and forget the time…

the light fades and moonlight shows,

We continue as the night flows.

The sun rises into a new day

she pulls me close and kisses my brow

Fades slowly away..

a tear falls down my cheek as she leaves

a whisper in my ear on the wind..

“I will always be here with you in your dreams..

“Never fear”

“Until next time sweet child…”

“Remember me and mine.”
