Remembering The One’s Who Have Passed + Spell

Merry meet! And welcome!

Today is one of those days of remembrance. Today’s mood is filled with the essence of contemplation, meditation, and honor.
Not many know that April 28th is a time for honor and remembering those who have passed in your life. If not family or friends, then to the ancestors who have helped guide you through life.

Use this day to communicate with those spirits. However, please always keep it safe when it comes to Spirit spells. Consider casting a protection circle with either salt, candles, or a barrier infusion.

            Spirit Communication Spell
Combine together
3 parts Wormwood
1 part   Vervain
A small piece of paper with the spirit’s name (cut into small pieces)

Grind. All the while, empowering the mix with your energy and memories of the spirit(s).
When ready, cast your protection circle, then with either a black candle, a piece of charcoal, or a burning bonfire, burn the mix. Chanting:

           Et vocavi vos, (spirit’s name)

         (I summon you, (spirit’s name))

Continue chanting until you feel a presence.
I highly recommend to leave an offering! Most give apples, barley, and milk. I prefer to give Lavender Tea with some extra sweet honey! Lavender tea, to me, is such a beautiful symbol of peace and rest, what better tea for the spirits to enjoy.
Now, I know that the idea of communicating with a spirit is quite intimidating. That’s alright to feel that way. Rather instead, cook a meal, bake bread or cookies! Dedicate the whole banquet to the spirits and ancestors. Have a place at the table empty with a plate and offerings!

Well happy tidings all! Have a truly blessed day and night!

Happy Seed Moon!

Merry meet to you all! And a happy full moon!
         The seed moon is a time for candlelight. Feel free to cast spells or meditate on furthering your knowledge and education. This month’s full moon stimulates the mind and perhaps it is because it being between Libra’s and Scorpio’s chambers. Consider drinking some honey bay and jasmine tea! Not only will it bring you good luck in these endeavors but enchants the mind for clarity and wisdom.
          The goddess is shining with all of her brightness and I feel truly blessed under her Divine Light. It’s nights like these (warm and calm) that I find appreciation in the little things. To celebrate this simplicity I had decided to enjoy a candlelight tea offering to the goddess, and a walk through the night air.
            As I walked, I felt this need to sing to the moon shining bright above me. It is a lullaby that has been stuck in my mind for two weeks now. But I found it fitting for the night. I’m sure others have heard of it if they watch the show Outlander.

                      Skye Boat Song
          ~Sing me a song of a lass that is gone, say could that lass be I?
          Mary of souls she sailed for a day, over the sea to Skye.
         ~Mull was a stem, rum on the port, Igg on the starboard bow.
        Glory of Youth glowed in his soul, where is that Glory now?
         ~Sing me a song of a lass that is gone, say could that lass be I?
         Mary of souls she sailed for a day, over the sea to Skye.
         ~Give me again all that is there, give me the sun that shone.
         Give me the eyes, give me the soul, give me the lad that’s gone.
         ~Sing me a song of a lass that is gone, say could that lass be I?
          Mary of souls she sailed for a day, over the sea to Skye.
         ~Billow and Breeze, islands and sees, mountains of rain and sun.
         All that is good, all that is fair, all that is me is gone.
          ~Sing me a song of a lass that is gone, say could that lass be I?
          Mary of souls she sailed for a day, over the sea to Skye.

Gray Witchcraft

Merry meet!

So I found myself exploring the never ending pins on Pinterest, and came upon a picture that I couldn’t have agreed more to. Gray Witchcraft.

Embracing both dark and light,
Without going to extremes.
Acknowledging Ying and Yang.
Gray witches are more than
What you think.
Our magick is powerful.
We use it wisely, and accordingly.
We seek not to harm,
But we will protect, and defend
A witch who cannot curse,
Cannot heal.
-The Lady Hekate

This poem/lesson is a wonderful way to help distinguish the meaning of what is between white and dark magick. Witches of Gray are often times Nature-based. This is because the energies of nature is both light and dark, good and bad, harmonious and destructive, life and death.
This source of magick is strong to tap into. It is powerful because how to truly connect with this energy is by fully accepting the light and darkness that lives within you. It has been said that once you seriously understand and connect with the inner balance that resonates in the soul, you can easily bond with nature and its power.
Every gray witch who wishes to form a connection from this source must learn through the training a few important lessons:
~Ye must respect and honor the balance of nature.
~Ye must not be the judge, victim, or criminal.
~Ye protect and defend the helpless.
~Ye must neither be mute or prideful of your craft.
~Ye accept the beauty and flaws of your own unique magick.

These lessons sounds easy enough, but believe me, I’ve had my moments growing up and finding myself overlooking the balance in order to help a friend. Or had been a victim and thought it right to send forth a karma curse. It took me until my late teens to fully realize that spells and intentions have their own time and place to be casted; when the balance won’t be interrupted. But when it is time to unleash the karma, it will be deployed 100%. Over time, nature (karma) will circle its way in and restore things much to your liking.
In the meantime, learn to heal, to protect, to defend, to cleanse, and find peace.
