Merry We Meet!!

This is my space to share, rant, rave, and even do a little bragging about my life choices, family, and where each are taking me.

Many people think 'witch' and immediately jump to the conclusion that I am some weirdo who's home smells like stale incense and thinks Mr. Potter is end all be all of magick. I hate to disappoint, but I am as normal as the next person. As much as a person can be normal.

So, please read on. Enjoy my trials and tribulations. Hopefully, you can learn something from the mistakes I make and the good fortunes that come my way.

On this very blessed day...

I wish all my readers a very merry ......

The wheel of the year has once again turned to this most sacred of days. A day of honoring loved ones who have passed into the summerlands for their souls to grow young once more before returning to us once again. Today, and this night, is the time of year when the veil between our worlds grow thin and the spirits of loved ones walk amongst us!

Set out an offering of food for those spirits who will grace us with their presence and light the bone fires! Yes, I meant bone! Tonight we will be sharing a feast with a close family friend of mine. We will be dining on roast chicken and baby redskin potatoes. Later those same chicken bones will have our wishes for the coming year carved into them and cast upon the fire! Hence the term Bone Fire (which is where bon fire was derived from coincidentally). Usually, we would be going trick or treating as well... but the eldest son has been grounded from it and the baby is just too young to get it.

This will be the first year in my entire life that I had not gone out trick or treating (with the exception of the 2 years I was sick). That will not however stop me from dressing up in costume and passing out candy! I have been working hard on costumes this year... making a total of 8. We are being characters from Borderlands. I am being Mad Moxxie for the evening! And yes... there will be pictures!

Some of the witches I know take this night to dress in their ritual garb and pass out candy. I am a witch everyday, I prefer to be something else for the most part. I am not against donning my ritual clothing for the evening, but at present, it's scattered between two houses.

Today/tonight is my favorite time of year! Samhain is also known as the Witch's New Year! So HAPPY NEW YEAR TO US!!

Now a short rant... promise to keep it brief!

All my info for the Samhain Sabbat post is on the computer with a dying hard drive. So there will be no update until a new hard drive can be procured and the data transferred over. I'm wigging out that it will be delayed and I apologize to everyone who uses that info. Hopefully, I will be able to get a new one in the next few weeks. Ok... rant over.

Happy Hauntings and as always...
               BLESSED BE!!

Magick: The Reality

Recently, I have had a friend come to me and ask for my help and guidance with a particular entity that is bothering her and her family. Of course, I had no problem helping her out. When she started to explain her issue to me and what had happened the night before I was in utter shock! Not to mention extremely flattered that she'd come to me with this. Her son's father had specifically asked for her to call me and see what I could offer them by way of info, protection, and if there were any charms or spells that I could offer them.

What had me flattered more than anything was the fact that he is Christian and without a second thought he immediately thought to ask me for help. Now mind you, I am very confident in my own abilities and what not. However, when faced with something such as this where people I truly care about are putting their faith in me protecting them... I am slightly (and by slightly I mean TOTALLY) skeptical of my ability.

I've been thumbing through my written references, books, and calling on long time friends to help me here. I've never had a problem throwing up protection wards and spells. But I've always done them strictly for myself.

The man who so graciously asked me what I could do for them also wanted to talk to me before I started casting or anything. Which I completely understood. This was after all out of his comfort zone and what I do is completely unknown to him. So we had a long conversation about cleansing and protection. As well as magick itself.

As most non-pagans, he saw magick as a hocus pocus type of thing that is merely silly games. With a sad shake of my head I began to school him :) In a very honest and open dialogue. I answered all his questions. I was even able to explain the logistics of magick with the clever use of quantum mechanics! (Yea... I'm a smart witch to boot). It's depressing to me to see so many people dismiss magick when it surrounds them on a daily basis. And while, yes, magick is "explainable"... why take the mystery out of it!? The best part about magick is the mystery.

Think of it this way... does KNOWING how a seed develops into a flower detract from the beauty of it? No... but it's much more fun to watch it happen instead of analyzing it.

Magick is energy. Plain and simple. When you take the time to focus your energy into something, be it a spell, a plant, or cooking a meal for your family... you ARE creating magick. Us witches just happen to know how to channel out energies to benefit us and those around us. It takes a lot of time and a lot of practice to get it right. While we all may play by different rules... we all respect magick itself.

My Goddesses I have missed this!!

No... my computer is not fixed yet. My mother loaned me out hers for the night. Hopefully, by next month, I will have the money I need to get my poor little laptop repaired!!

Idea after idea has been pouring from my noggin too. I have so much that I want to type out that I am not really sure where to begin.

My Samhain prep is completely lacking this year. I haven't put out decorations or anything. Spiritually, however, the family has been so consumed that it's hard to feel like we've forgotten. We seem to be super busy this year. Oh yea... and I've made 8 costumes this year :/ It's been busy :) Tomorrow we are taking the oldest to Greenfield Village for their Halloween celebration! We are excited it is seriously an AWESOME event to take your kids too if you are in the area! You can find all the info here!

I would like to apologize though... the Sabbats page is going to fall behind. All my info and research is on my hard drive that is in the process of failing miserably. Hence the reason I haven't been on. I am hoping that I will be able to transfer all my data over before it dies completely. I plan to do that as soon as I get a new hard drive. If not... I will be inconsolable for weeks! That is years of research and info that will be lost!
