Samhain Prayer

May I walk the path of the Ancients
May I always honor their wisdom
May there always be room at My table
for a hungry mouth,
May there always be room in My heart
for a friend.
May I Grace the path I follow
With Dignity

Wishing A Blessed Samhain
Blessed Beltaine
To All
Wherever on Mama Gaia You may be!

Samhain Magick

On this Eve,
The charm of making
What I wish
Is thine for taking
anail na beatha

Meltdown on the Spiritual Path

This past Weekend I had a meltdown,
When I say a meltdown,
I'm talking epic proportions.

The sort of thing that shocked the hell out of me &
Those close to me.

I'm not going to go into all the details,
But it was so out of character for me.
Looking back on it, I sensed something was coming.
In the days prior I did a bit of cleansing.
Maybe the cleansing was a catalyst, or perhaps
The sense of something's "Not quite right"  was flashing
a warning.

It all began on Friday Night.
The same Friday Night of The Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse.
The Full Moon in Aries.
I just happen to be an Aries.

I had been doing Prayer, Meditation & Honoring Spirit
When it hit me.
It began with a torrent of emotions.
Anger, Frustration, Sadness & Anger again.

In the Midst of all this insanity, and it was insanity
Was a terrible sense of loss.

I lost My Dad, Less then a year ago.
I had an intensely close relationship with Him.
I was His caregiver for probably 10 years.

There are Many things that led to this Meltdown,
But The overwhelming grief I felt at that moment
catapulted into an unexpected emotional and Spiritual

Thankfully My Partner made some smart choices
in handling the situation.
Very calming He said, "You need to see Padrino".
Then He called him.
My Meltdown is not why I'm writing any of this.
It's what it reminded me of.
It's what I try to teach others,
but I'd forgotten Myself.

Every Day I see clients for a multitude of  issues.
Sometimes it love, career, finance.
Sometimes it's about choices,
Sometimes it's a Spiritual checkup & quite often
It's to connect with a loved one who's passed over.

When a client loses a loved one,
They want immediate comfort of connecting
with the loved one.
I recommend waiting but most people don't
want to hear it.
They want it now.
We want that connection because it makes US
feel better.
It may not be the best thing
for the one who has passed.
In Our grief, We become selfish.
It's human nature.
We don't allow time for the one who has
passed to adjust, to move on in their journey.

What We think We do for love, Is not truly

We must learn to set them free.
That is the greatest gift We can give to those We truly love.
And When the time is right,
We must have confidence in the knowledge
They will be there for Us.

That is what We must take comfort in.

On Being a " Witch"

Being a Witch doesn't make Me "cool" or "hip"
I take No mind of those things.
Being a Witch means I respect & honor the power
within Me
I respect & honor the power of Nature
Being a Witch doesn't mean I dance
Naked under the Moon partaking in wild orgies;
I have stood
Naked in the Rain
Because it felt good & clean & refreshing
I have lain
Naked in the Sun because Vitamin D
Is good for My body
And I have danced  under the Moon
Because I am a Woman,
A Daughter of The Great Mother
and I honor the energies of Lady Moon
Being a Witch doesn't make me Godless
Nor a devil worshiper
Being a Witch has nothing to do
With My religious beliefs
And Everything to do with My Spirituality.

My Magick is neither Good
Nor Bad
My Magick is born of respect for Nature,
For the Cycles of life
Neither a game or to be taken lightly
Being a Witch doesn't make Me Perfect
Or Imperfect
Being a Witch teaches me
To be the Best I can be
Which in the End,
Is something We all should strive for

A Message from The Great Mother Oct 2013

"The Path to Spirit
Is The Path To Nature"

I asked Spirit if there was any message I should share for the energies
of October. 

The first message I received, as posted above was simple & to the point. 

Early this morning I heard another message:

"Whence Thou casts
Thy foot upon the Earth,
Do so with Great Reverence.
For the time shall come
When My wrath shall be felt
And many will quake
In My Path.

You Who turn a blind eye
Do so foolishly
For I who hath given
Shall taketh away
Encumbrance shall come

I have raised Great Empires
And toppled many more.
Those who have forgotten
Shall remember,
For I AM the Giver
And I AM the Taker
I shall decide
Who is righteous
And Who shall be cast out.

(The?) Fall from Grace
Shall be heard loudly
Across many lands
And My Children Shall rise up
My Daughters take hand
and know
SHE has risen."
