I’m combining my journal entries because it’s getting too hard to do them nightly. So, I’m going to update my journal every 3 days.

I do a sound recording of what I do because it’s too easy to forget what I’ve done when I’m in ritual headspace.


DAY 4

I cleanse my sacred space every day with sage and rotate different incenses. I also invite my ancestor and spiritual allies to join me in the ritual

Dragon Blood Incense

Did a card pull with my Psychic Oracle deck.

#2 Sacral Chakra card from Psychic Oracle deck.

Colors-Orange

Sound-Vam

Element-Water

Characteristics-Creative movement such as dancing and sexuality.

This is interesting because I have incorporated dance when I started working with the bowl.

The herbs also decided they didn’t want to be separated and mixed together. So, I put the card on top of the herbs overnight.

Playlist:

Spineee by Gary Stadler

Close your Eyes-Bernward Koch

Tonight, I started my ritual by cleansing my space with Sage, I moved clockwise and then smudged myself.

Herbal infusion of the bowl. To accomplish this, I was told to put the following herbs in the bowl and keep them in it overnight. I initially thought it would be 6 but it ended up being 9 herbs.

They were put the bowl in a clockwise pattern, starting with the 12th hour position

Lilac- draws protection spirits, faery communication, helps recall past lives

Yarrow Flower- courage, love, psychic powers, purification

White Willow Bark-  Lunar energy, water, and magic. Signifies transformation and rebirth.

Lemongrass- psychic powers, spiritual growth, purification

Jasmine-  Love, money, prophetic dreams, emotional inner peace and calm of mind

Rosemary- Protection, love, purification, healing, good luck, psychic development

Sweetgrass- Healing, peace, and attracts positive energies

Sage and Tobacco were put in the center of the bowl.

Sage- Purification, wisdom, and longevity

Tobacco- Healing and purification

Next, I played Gary Stadler Radio Station on Pandora and let the program choose what songs would be used. As I played the songs, I lay back down with the crown chakra touching the bowl and sent healing and psychic energy to the bowl. I felt tingling on my crown chakra and then put my hand on the side of the bowl.

Song List:

Breath of Love

Athair Ar Neamh

Keys to the Heart

After the songs finished, I laid face down with my crown chakra touching the bowl and my hands holding the bowl while I sent prayers  into it so that it would help the person who receives this with what they need.

I smudged the arm and closed the circle, thanking and acknowledging all who joined me in the ritual.

HTS 30 Day Magical Item Challenge-Day 1

12-2-16- Day 1 of 30 Day Magical Item Challenge

Materials for the Ritual:

Incense burner

Dragons’ Blood Incense

Kanaga water

Prayer/Offer/Spellwork Bowl

Owl Rattle

I started my ritual around 9 pm in my altar room. To clear my ritual space, I lit and burned Palo Santo and went around the altar room and then smudged myself. I put a soft blanket on the floor and placed my incense burner in front of it and burned dragon’s blood incense. I faced east.

I moved the bowl over the incense smoke, took a cloth and washed the bowl in kanaga water.  While I was cleansing the bowl, I intoned Ansuz rune 9 times as I moved the cloth in a clockwise motion.

I called upon my ancestors, the deities I work with, the rune spirits, and my animal guides to join me in my ritual.

After the circle was open, I intoned Ansuz, Algiz, and Othalla 3 times each while holding the bowl. I also sang into the bowl.

I was told to play 3 songs and just let Pandora shuffle it how it was meant to.

First song:

Tine Beltaine by Omnia

Tine Beltaine by Omnia

 

With this song, I was told to dance in a circle as I played my owl rattle while the song played. I took the bowl and danced around the circle clockwise and acknowledged the directions, starting with East, North, West, South

The energy was amazing during this part, all the hairs on my arms and behind my neck stood up and it tingled all over my body. It was almost as if I was out of my body and someone else stepped in and infused the bowl with primal energy.

Second Song:

Kuoppa by Tenhi

With this song, I just sat on the blanket and put my hand on the bowl while infusing it with my energy. Olivia came up and sniffed the bowl then laid behind me

Song 3

Full Moonlight Dance

Tina Malia

I wasn’t sure about this one but there must be a reason why this song came up. I sat with the bowl here as well just holding it.

.

After the songs played, I made the video of what I was doing and then closed the circle, thanking all my allies.

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……
