My Lessons Are Hard To Learn Sometimes
I am an olde dabbler in Chaos Magick.

oops.

However, I kisse the White Witch of Santa Cruz and was Sent to Portland.

Lately I have been lonely and as misunderstood as ever. I have endured and survived one Hella BAd Ass Year and am coming back to my senses after a magickal journey through the kingdoms of my mind. I acheived this first by practicing my austerities and halting the ingestion of a daily regiment of anti deppresants and anti psychotics and methadone last march and by April I discovered I was Awesome and that they can call me a high functioning Austistic if they'd like... Asperger's Syndrome is what I knew I had casue it empowered me soooo much to be able to do proper self-analysis.

an unfortunate set of events, however, landed me into the darker recesses of my mind, having compulsively traveled to Oakland California.... psychotic, well intended, and impoverrished. an infected blister from a sandal turned into MRSA STAF (flesh eating staf infection) and that had an even greater influence on my already cartoonish altered state of consciosness. that is where i loose memories and sense of timeline. i barely remember most of what occured. I know some of the facts and I have memories... some i question... some i can prove with little momentos or business cards i collected. my favorite piece of evidence is the "Kitty Stationary" i'd bought on Telegraph Avenue before going to The Berkeley Hare Krishna Temple on Durant. I was visited by an Alien who manifested and dematerialized right behind me... in broad daylight summer. Wow... she was amazingly gorgeous. she had cat like eyes and porcelin pale skin that was unblemmished. she had amazing eye make up and a buzzed old shcool punker girl haircut. her clothes were novel. a t-shirtish something and pants that were full of pockets and zippers... cargo-ish like... perfect for traveling around a planet... light travel... This is my account and I swear by it fully. I Saw Cat-Woman from Outer Space.

Anyways... I gotta go to my homegroup NA Meeting now. what else do i do? nothing. i do nothing cause i am afraid i know way too much for most to fathom. i can't fathom mot of it myself. all i know is that my Pagaen Beliefs and Up Bringing and Sole Wiccan practices help me to continue to endure the Chaos of this existance. My experiences too prove that serentiy and orde can and do stem from Chaos.

thanks for reaing this.

Happy Yule
Huzza, Huzza, in our good town
The bread shall be white, and the liquor be brown
So here my old fellow I drink to thee
And the very health of each other tree.
Well may ye blow, well may ye bear
Blossom and fruit both apple and pear.
So that every bough and every twig
May bend with a burden both fair and big
May ye bear us and yield us fruit such a stors
That the bags and chambers and house run o'er. — Cornworthy, Devon, 1805

Jars for storage
As tag sale, yard sale, and estate sale season swings into high gear, these are great oppurtunitys for picking up old spice and seasoning jars for recycled use. Cheap and reusable, and in great old shapes.
To remove old label's sticky residue use a hot water soak and lotion to break down the paste. Soak, lotion and let sit, rinse and scrub, wash with a light mixture of Comet paste/ Comet water. It removes the scent and taste of the previous herb/spice and the light bleach sterilizes the glass.

WANTED:Coven Members
Hi all,
           I don't know if this has been done before, but I am looking for a group of people who would be interested in setting up a virtual coven, I would not classify myself as a Wiccan, more Pagan, but I do celebrate the sabbats and am an avid tarot reader.  I would like to set up an online community to discuss all things wiccan/pagan/new age, and perhaps this could eventually become a virtual coven tapping into the group psyche to perform spells/divinations etc.

If you are interested please post a comment, stating your age, location, sex, any special skills e.g. scrying/herbcraft etc and I will message you privately, Thanks.

Hi! Yes, I'm new...
I'm Stephie, and I consider myself a Christian, but I'm also into other spiritual things like rituals and such. I'm fascinated by the ideas of witchcraft and folk medicine, and I have beautiful Tarot cards (they have a Renniscanse theme!) and I love candles & incense, and want to look more into crystal healing. (please excus my horrid slepping)

A couple Christmases ago, my grandmother gave me this awesome book called "The Ultimate Guide to Goddess Empowerment" written by Sophie, and she did other books on hexes and stuff. I'm into faeries too, and have done a couple rituals with that, like a Salimander one, it was amazing, it's a fire element of course and it was to get rid of bad memories, and you light a candle and stare at the flame and then I closed my eyes and got an image in my head about something embarassing I'd done once, and then I had the image slowly burn away from the bottom to the top, and ever since, i haven't had a problem with that!! I have a hard time letting go of stuff even if it happend years ago, so that was very helpful.

One thing I do remember from Wicca itself (correct me if I'm wrong,) is the law of threeforld, when you're cursing someone if you point your index finger, 3 of your fingers are pointing back  as you and thus you'll have whatever you hex the other person with 3 times as badly, I'm pretty sure that's right.  My ex was Wiccian (I wish we were still friends but she's not on Facebook :( but it was really helpful for her so that's good. I don't care if people belive in God or not. Do I? Yeah, sure but I think people were meant to belvie in or not belvke in what they truly feel. Ergo, I (obviously) don't adhear to only Christain concepts but other oens as well. I don't follow any written doctriate; I just follow my heart.

If it sounds ridicilous, fair enough but since I don't follow any written doctrite, I have a bizarre array of how the universe came to be. this is just my....rather ood feelings: God always existed. he created the big bang, and the one tiny cell that all of humanity grew to (I so don't believe in the 'making man in one day' etc) and I believe in God like I said, the idea of Karma, Fate (DEIFNATLY) and I also thing that heaven, whatever deity you belicei in, they're there for you. Why insist that only your god is there? I think that's excluding people. I guess if you follow a book or scripture of some kind, but I think it's fair for wahtever you blevie in is there for. And if you belvieve in no afterlife, you won't have one. If someoen's an Atheist, first of all, I can't blame them, and secondly, I feel that people believe what they were meant to. Also I DON'T think that all of life is predesting, but I dont' bleive its only by random chance either. I bleive that Fate gives you a situation and your choices lead you forward (or backwards, I suppose, if you're reverting to an old habit or some such,) and you get chances and opportunities and you need to take them. I believe sincerly in guaridain angels and have one, without sounding a bit mad. but I do. It works for me and gives me a lot of guidance and hope.

This seems really cool and I'm glad I found this group!!

I have to go now. Blessed Be! :)

To All Witches, Magical Beings & Entities of the Like:

 

This is being posted in several places, so sorry if this is a re-read.

This is a thought that just now hit me. I am not expecting a big reaction, But I would be glad of information f one has it .

    I was thinking about all the things that are happening in this world- War and The state of Earth particularly. I was wondering... 

     1) Is there anyhing Magicals can do on the magical plane to help with some of these problems?

     2) If so, What could we do? I am talking some act of extremely powerful magic. The first thing that comes to mind when I say this is a large gathering of witches, maybe some faeries thrown in. 

    The first 2 questions focus more on the state of the Earth. Thank you for your time, and I wish you peace.

      Blessed Be,
                             Drake

hello
I'm new to this community and to wicca/witchcraft. I've studied wicca on and off for about a year. I've made some of my own spells that have worked out at a moderate level but I need help.
My mom tends to be a very negative person she comes home and complains and is always in a grippy mood. Now take it she is a very nice person at heart but I feel like she is under stress and stress is a major harborer of negative energy. I think she brings in a lot of negativity into the house I can almost feel it in the air. Every time she walks in a room even if she's not in a bad mood I can feel it. I know it's probably wrong to cast a spell on someone without they're permission to help with her stress. Is there any spell I can use to clean the house of negativity and protect it from being brought in again?

I know this is a lot to be asking, but I'm totally desperate.
My high school graduation ceremony is today and I came down with a cold yesterday.
I've been drinking a lot of tea with lemon and honey (a thing my Greek family swears by,) and I've been trying to stay warm and stuff but I was just wondering if anyone happened to have a miracle cure?
I'd love you forever :)

Thanks SO much

Budda Machine`s sounds with 3D sacral symbols
Has anyone of you ever heard something about Budda Machine and the way it relax you? Numerous copies are distributed everyday in USA. What would happen if we combined Budda Machine`s sounds with 3D sacred symbols: flower of life, pyramid, metatron’s cube and etc.?

You would get my free utility for meditation and relaxation. Download it from here: http://68.178.221.107/budda/budda.rsp.

Altar placement
I'm "redecorating".

I have always placed my alter inside my circles when performing rituals.
The new "space" that I will be using would make it difficult to do so as the altar would be up against a wall, (in a northern corner actually).

I have discussed this with a whole whack of people, most of who have completely different views.
I have heard the opinion that I'd have to just cast around the wall altar and include it; I've heard that as long as I have my essential tools within my circle and keep the room cleansed that there will be no problems; I've been told that I'd need to create a smaller secondary altar within the circle; I've also been told that it is essential to drag the altar out from the wall each time (very impractical).

I'm not huge on ritual per se and will, in the end, do what I feel is right, but I am interested in what other peoples' opinions are.

Hi, Im new to this commuity and i have a delima hopefully someone can help me.
I met this guy 16 months ago and I fell unconditioanlly in love with this man, however he wanted someone very close to me "this nearly destroyed my life". This guy and I have never dated or anything even close. I would give anything within my ability for this man and his children. What can I do for him to open his heart to the possibility of the life we could share. I'm not trying to force him to love me only to give me a chance "to see me in a whole new light".
