Let’s try something interesting and useful as a new way to write a short spell.
I have been watching a YouTube family channel designed with the idea for families have fun and maybe try some things they do. Caution they may get loud at times but I have gotten at least a chuckle on the over 30 videos I have watched so far.
Good Mythical Morning
The hosts Rhett and Link do some strange things. But one thing they do sometimes is talk in a Japanese from of poetry known as Haiku. Which can be explained easily with this
A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.
An explanation of Haiku by Poets.org
As I read about Haiku I realized while it may take some getting use to writing nd reading it, it could be a different way to write a short, simple for something easy. For example (this is my first try in trying to do this so if it sounds strange it gives me room to improve and to find knowledge)
“I want Mother Earth,
To be clean and renewed So
Tell me pick up trash.”
Ok, I guess most people would not really a spell in the sense that we are use to writing them in. But to finish it I would write it on a small 1 inch by 3 inch piece of paper then the roughly burn the piece of paper. Once the ash is COMPLETELY COLD I would grinded it into a fine dust to mix into a small amount of lotion, about 1 tablespoon (if you lotion tends to go a long way when you use it regularly a just the amount you would use for this so you can rub in the lotion completely or than rub a tip of your index finger amount throughly into my crown chakra to remind me to pick up the trash and on my 3rd eye area so I would not over look the trash. Than rub the rest into my hands to remember to grab the trash. I would do this just before bedtime and let the lotion with the spell paper dust in it soak into my skin to set the spell. If you can wear a long weight pair of pure cotton gloves which will help the lotion moisture your hands more.
Here is my first attempt using a Japanese Haiku Poem to do a Spell. I will let you know how it goes.
I am really looking forward to reading your Haiku spell and how you are going to put it into action.
I met my girlfriend when she facebooked me and asked about the rumors of me being transgender. As we talked more and more she said she wouldnt mind dating a transgender person if I was interested so we got to know one another and she invited me to Indy Pagan Day where her coven was putting on a ritual. It sounded like a good time and I was exploring alternate religions so I went out and attended the event and also attended her ritual. I enjoyed the pomp and circumstance of the ritual coming from a Catholic background and it increased my interest in pagan holidays and esbats. We talked later and I let her know I would be willing to attend another ritual as they did most of their rituals publicly if her.
The next open ritual that they had was Samain and I was hooked, we attended the ritual I enjoyed myself as far as the learning process went and enjoyed the other people in the group. After this ritual though things started going south for me and the girlfriend and we broke up right before Yule and because of this I only attended one ritual with her coven. At the time I was hoping to continue the process with her coven but as the timed passed I saw that this was not going to be possible because of the drama.
This caused me to explore other options for my spirituality and I found an online coven to belong to for my education and a guild in a different city for my socialization. I still do almost nothing witchy in Indianapolis, Indiana because I do not want to run the chance of running into my ex girlfriend.
I have written before on the differences between a guild and a coven and would be more than willing to answer questions in either area. I will also take question on my transgender journey. Hope everyone has a wonderful day, sun has come out here, and it is fairly warm for the end of December
Dawn of the Day
I have been told there is a word in the American Indiana languages that has the same meaning and is similar to when a Witch or Pagan says Blessed Be.
This word is A’ Ho
pronounced with a short A such as in apple
and Ho such as in hoe.
So today dear Sisters, Brothers, and Guests A’ Ho
The gods and goddesses of Ancient Egypt were an integral part of the people’s everyday lives. It is not surprising then that there were over 2,000 deities in the Egyptian pantheon. Some of these deities’ names are well known: Isis, Osiris, Horus, Amun, Ra, Hathor, Bastet, Thoth, Anubis, and Ptah while many others less so. The more famous gods became state deities while others were associated with a specific region or, in some cases, a ritual or role. The goddess Qebhet, for example, is a little known deity who offered cool water to the souls of the dead as they awaited judgment in the afterlife, and Seshat was the goddess of written words and specific measurements overshadowed by Thoth, the better known god of writing and patron of scribes.
Ancient Egyptian culture grew out of an understanding of these deities and the vital role they played in the immortal journey of every human being. Historian Margaret Bunson writes: “The numerous gods of Egypt were the focal points of the nation’s cultic rites and personal religious practices. They also played a part in the great mortuary rituals and in the Egyptian belief in posthumous eternal bliss (98).”
The gods evolved from an animistic belief system to one which was highly anthropomorphic and imbued with magic. Heka was the god of magic and medicine but was also the primordial force, pre-dating all the other gods, who enabled the act of creation and sustained both mortal and divine life. The central value of the Egyptian culture was ma’at – harmony and balance – represented by the goddess of the same name and her white ostrich feather, and it was Heka who empowered Ma’at just as he did all the other deities. Heka was the manifestation of heka (magic) which should be understood to be natural laws which today would be considered supernatural but, to the Egyptians, were simply how the world and the universe functioned. The gods provided people with all good gifts but it was heka which allowed them to do so.
