Five Fold Kiss

Five Fold Kiss

The fivefold kiss is a series of ritual kisses given at initiation, and as a portion of the Great Rite ceremony

The kiss is usually done male to female, or female to male, though this is not always the case. It is only performed within the circle.

It is also a ceremony that is sometimes ritually acted out between the High Priestess and Priest to mark the respect shown between the God and Goddess.
The fivefold kiss is not sexual, even when the ceremony is performed naked. It is a ritual of respect, and not in the least degrading for either party. Far from it. The kiss is usually performed by the most senior High Priest or Priestess present.

FIVE FOLD KISS FEMALE:

The High Priest kneels before the initiate and gives her the five fold kiss. He kisses her on both feet, both knees, womb, both breasts, and the lips, starting with the right of each pair. At each appropriate body part, he says:

Blessed be thy feet, that have brought thee in these ways.
Blessed be thy knees, that shall kneel at the sacred altar.
Blessed be thy womb, without which we would not be.
Blessed be thy breasts, formed in beauty.
Blessed be thy lips, that shall utter the Sacred Names.

For the kiss on the lips, they embrace, length-to-length, with their feet touching each other’s.

 FIVE FOLD KISS MALE:Five Fold Kiss

The High Priestess kneels before the initiate and gives him the five fold kiss. She kisses him on both feet, both knees, phallus, both breasts, and the lips, starting with the right of each pair. At each appropriate body part, she says:

Blessed be thy feet, that have brought thee in these ways
Blessed be thy knees, that shall kneel at the sacred altar
Blessed be thy phallus, without which we would not be
Blessed be thy breasts, formed in strength
Blessed be thy lips, that shall utter the Sacred Names.

For the kiss on the lips, they embrace, length-to-length, with their feet touching.

 For both sexes the body is a sacred and holy shrine, and is to be revered, not despised. It is to be honoured, not treated with shame. For a woman, the body is considered a temple of the Goddess whose divinity she carries in the centre of the soul. For a man, his body is a temple of the God.

A nice little poem for you below:

The Don’t Quit Poem

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must, but don’t you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As every one of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about,
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don’t give up though the pace seems slow–
You may succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than,
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up,
When he might have captured the victor’s cup,
And he learned too late when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out–
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt,
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems so far,
So stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit
It’s when things seem worst that you must not quit.

Scrying Pool Mirror and Crystal Gazing

Scrying Pool Mirror and Crystal Gazing

Scrying pool mirror and crystal gazing … reflect on these ideas

Scrying is a form of divination, but is also much more than that.

By gazing into a crystal, pool, mirror or other reflective medium, a Witch is able to enter altered mind states and gain access beyond the veil. Because every person you meet will have a different way of accessing their mind states, you will hear many different scrying techniques. Some of the techniques I’ve come across border on the realms of superstition (which I define as fear through lack of knowledge and/or acceptance). You might read that unless a crystal sphere is true quartz counter tops crystal, it will not work. You might hear that a perfect sphere without any visible flaws is necessary.

You may hear that your scrying mirror or crystal must never be touched by sunlight. These are simply not true.

There are legitimate reasons for each of these ‘rules’ but it doesn’t mean that you have to follow them in order to scry effectively. Let’s break down scrying into the basics so you can understand why these rules exist. In this way, you can determine for yourself if you wish to adhere to them, or toss them aside as rubbish. If you wish to begin scrying, you will need some sort of a reflective surface.

More about this later, let’s look at what you will actually be doing with this reflective surface first. Scrying works on the principles of what is named by some as the Ganze field.

If you ever had to sit in the corner as a culinary, staring at a blank wall until you began to hallucinate and have stories, patterns, or images appear to you, you know what the Ganze field is. If you’ve ever stayed awake in bed staring at the ceiling until these same things happened, then you also know what a Ganze field is.

Ok, so maybe I’ve spoiled the mystery of scrying by breaking it down into the basics and telling you what it really is. However, scrying has a very occult side. It isn’t how you get to the mind state of scrying that’s important, it’s the mysteries that are unveiled to you once you are there that are important. Interpreting what you see when you scry is very much like dream interpretation.

There are many books that will define each image you glimpse, but essentially it boils down to what those images mean to you. A key element in quickly attaining the correct state for scrying is flashing light. (If you are epilectic disregard this section, if you eliminate the flickering but keep the gaze similar, you should still be able to scry.)

Place flickering candles around the room you are working in.

Keep them out of your direct line of vision, but at the same time, be certain that the reflection of the flame can be seen in the scrying surface. To get these ‘flickering’ candles, you can open a window a crack to let a draft help you out. Or, there are some candles you’ll find on the market, especially inexpensive ones, which have a flame that rises and falls rhythmically. These work quite well for scrying. Try this for example, you will need:

1) A cook mirror, a cauldron filled with water (or an herbal infusion such as mug wort), or a crystal, or a shallow dish of water (made cook by the addition of ink), a ring with a nice stone (like moonstone) a cook stone like obsidian, a cook tile, or whatever reflective medium you wish to use.

2) Five candles To Begin: Place the scrying medium on your altar so that you can look at it from approximately a 45 degree angle while in a very comfortable position. Arrange the candles throughout the room so that they are elevated above the scrying medium but remain outside of your direct line of sight. You may wish to cast a circle at this time or recite a blessing or charge over the medium and over the entire scrying session.

Breathe deeply and rhythmically while gazing at the medium. Imagine you are looking through a red lens so that everything you see is tinted with red. Move on through the chakra colours in a “Crytal Countdown” fashion (in The Power of the Witch by Laura Cabot) The colour sequence is as follows: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.

(The rainbow, easily remembered with the initials as a name…ROY G. BIV) When you feel that you are relaxed, keep looking at the medium. Your first sessions may last 10 to 30 minutes, but work up to hour long sessions. Do not be critical of yourself or your results. If you fall asleep that’s ok, if you daydream that’s ok too. Just let whatever happens, happen. In this way you will quickly refine your skills. Relax your gaze as if you were attempting a 3D magic eye hidden picture. If you have trouble with those darned 3D things, don’t worry, scrying is similar only in that you relax your eyes and don’t really look AT the surface. Follow Up: After you have completed your session, jot down a few rough notes.

Do what you need to do to ground yourself or clean up the area. Sometime during your day, go back to your notes and fill in more details as you remember them. I use two columns, one for the description of images seen, and one for my translations. Go over each image that you saw. You might consult a symbol interpretation list for dreams, you know, the kind that say a bird is an omen, a knife is a……well, you get it. You could also analyse each image by checking what it means to you.

For example, a red rose may mean passion in the books, but if your best friend requested them in the hospital, your personal associations are going to be different. The conclusions you draw from your scrying sessions must eventually be your own and as you continue to practice, you will understand yourself and your visions more and more.

Candle Magick Basic

Candle Magick Basic

Candle Magick basic can be very interesting. I must stress the danger of using burning candles and hot wax. Please be careful.

I find the best place for performing the art of candle magic is at my altar. I know there is no chance of any one disturbing me, a place where I can be assured of safety, comfort and concentration.

Candle magik is probably the simplest form of magik on can perform.

It is also for some the most effective. When we use candles we are empowering our own energy, possibly with an elemental attribute. We can also use the colour of the candle to induce the proper state of mind for the spell or ceremony. Do bear in mind: most forms of candle magic will be repeated over a few days so my altar is ideal as it is sacred to me.

Before my candle magik workings I like to ease myself into the right frame of mind by chilling out during a nice hot bath.

The warm water soaking away my aches and pains of the day the steam rising making clouds of mist above me and remembering not to take the plug out of the bath till I am out of it so as not to wash away my fresh energy.

Now it is time to gather the tools I will need to perform my candle magik starting with the incense of my choice (a few people I know do not bother with incense) I prefer to use Vervain for this is classed as the Herb of Enchantment, and gives balance to my magical workings, other practitioners use different types of incense find one that you like but a particular incense can have a huge effect on the outcome of your magik.

Remember Incense symbolizes Air and I believe that my magical workings are carried skywards with the scented smoke.

I am now ready to cleans my candles (remember that different colours of candles each have their own symbolism). This is most important as candles stored away in a bundle can collect bits of fluff and the likes so I place a hand full of sea salt in a bowl and my magick candles are covered while I say the following words of blessing:

Oh candle while the cleansing be,
In the name of the Goddess three,

I say these words three times slowly while moving my candle/s through the salt in the bowl, this is just my own personal way of clearing away all the negative energy from my working candle/s, use your own method explore.

My next step is to dress the candle taking the candle I need from the bowl of salt i rub oil on the candle in a downward motion from the top to the middle and then from the bottom to the middle, you can use whatever oil you prefer for this as long as it is relevant to the spell in question. I tend to say a few words while doing this dressing of the candle: “I cleanse and consecrate this candle in the name of the God and Goddess.

Let it burn with vigour in the presence of your view so mote it be.”

I will now give my intention for the use of this candle.
When I inscribe my candle I often use my anthame and dress accordingly not forgetting to say the chosen words and blessing. Remember to focus all the time on the intention of your spell while dressing or anointing pushing forcing the energy you have cooped through your arms and out through your fingertips, do not allow your mind to wonder at any time during this process it is so important to generate the correct energy to make the spell materialize, you are now ready to use your candle, you are now ready to perform your desired spell …… Blessed Be.

Goddess Full Moon Ritual

goddess full moon ritual

Goddess Full Moon Ritual to try maybe even place in your  book of shadows

Pray to the Moon when she is round
luck with you shall then abound.
What you seek for shall be found
in sea or sky or solid ground.


This rite may be used for either New or Full Moon. The difference is in your meditation and mental attitude in preparation. Remember that the New Moon is a time of outward work and thought, building to the peak which is the Full Moon.

At the Full Moon, you should be preparing to lessen the outward flow of energy, bit by bit, until the period before New Moon, during which you are passive, building a pool of energy within you, in preparation for the New Moon.
The altar should be placed in the center of the ritual area. On it should be placed a rose or stick of incense on the eastern side, a red votive candle to the South; a cup of water on the West, and a bowl of salt or living plant on the North. Around your ritual area, you should place an unlighted candle at the cardinal point of each direction.
To begin your rite, enter your darkened temple, carrying one burning candle, white or lavender, with you.goddess full moon ritual Place it on the center of your altar, sit, and meditate on the meaning of the rite. When you feel the time is right, stand, and go to the eastern point, carrying with you, the burning taper. Light the votive at the eastern point and go to the southern, picturing, as you do, an arc of pure strong light curving from one candle to the next. Continue to the West, and then to the North, lighting the candles as you go, and then walk to your eastern candle again, having formed a circle of protective light surrounding the area in which you worship. Return to the center of the circle replace the candle on the altar, and

Say:

“My Lady of the Moon, who is called Diana,
Artemis, Levanah, Isis and by any other names,
I come to you to bring you my love and my devotion.
May you grant me the joy of your presence?”

Mentally divide the room into four quadrants by visualizing a line of silvery moonlight from the southeast to the northwest, and from the northeast to the southwest. Go the East, taking with you the rose or incense.

Say:

“Sweet Goddess
the gentle breeze is the touch of your loving hand,
the wind of storm a reminder of your strength.
The sound of the trees in the wind is your voice
and the fragrance of flowers borne on the wind is your gift of beauty.”

Place the rose next to the votive candle and then stand there as you picture the quadrant filling with moonlight. See the moonlight streaming quietly and gently into the room, filling the quadrant from center point to the edge of your circle. When this is complete, take the red candle to the South. Place the gift and see the quadrant fill with moonlight.

Say:

“Most loved Lady
the light of the candle is a guide along our path leading to you;
its warmth the reassurance of your presence and your love.
The light of the Sun is the knowledge you impart to us
driving out ignorance and those things which can survive only in darkness.”

At the West

“Lovely one the quiet pool is the serenity of your being.
The vast sea where life began on this planet
is the vast sea of your being whence all life came
its waves are the ebb and flow of the universe you rule.”

At the North

“Goddess of all, the fertility of the earth is a sign of your fertility, whence all life rose. The solidity and permanence are still of it are still less than yours.
The Earth’s fertility feeds our bodies, and your fertility feeds our souls.”

Go to the center of your temple, which is now filled with moonlight. Everything in the circle is touched by it, blessed by it, including you. Sit down and feel this moonlight around you. Know that it is the Goddess. Realize that you are in the center of a sphere of light that is half above and half above and half below where you sit.
Begin to breathe slowly and evenly, deep breaths that penetrate your whole body. When this rhythmic breathing becomes natural, imagine that the moonlight by which you are surrounded enters you, fills you entirely. With each exhalation of your breath, some of the essence of yourself leaves your body, and with each inhalation, the light enters you. You are being filled ever so gently with this beautiful light. goddess full moon ritualThis light, which is the presence, the being of the Goddess, is within you as well as without. With each breath, you are less yourself and more the Goddess. When you are filled with light, filled with the Goddess, the shell of your body fades away. You have no body; there is nothing to separate you from the entire being of the Goddess. Nothing exists but the being of which you are apart. You have ceased to be a separate entity. You are nothing and everything. All that was, that is, and all that will be, you are. Enjoy this feeling as long as you like.
When you feel it is time, picture the outer shell of your physical body reforming, becoming solid again. It is being built out of the Universe of which you are a part. Now, as you continue your slow deep breathing, see the moonlight flowing out of your body, as gently and slowly as it entered. As it flows out, realize there is a difference. Because you have become one with the Goddess, with the Universe, your being has changed. As the moonlight flows out of your body, it takes with it a part of that which was yourself, now part of the Goddess, and leaves behind a part of the Goddess, forever now part of you. You become yourself again, solid as you were, but changed. You are surrounded by the presence of the Goddess, which now contains a part of yourself. Move again to the East. As you speak, and after, picture the moon- light in that quadrant flowing back to its source, leaving that quadrant as it was. Do this at each quadrant, until all the moonlight has returned to the Moon.

At the East

“My Lady, guide my thoughts.
Let them lead always closer to you.”

At the South

“Gracious Goddess, guide my actions.
Let them always help and never harm others or myself.”

At the West

“Lovely One, guide my emotions
Let them be healing and touched always by you.”

At the North

“Sweet Goddess,
let my mind always be fertile and strong
that I may grow always toward you.”

Return to the East to complete the circle and say:

“Queen of Heaven
I thank you for your presence,
both now and always.
My love and devotion are yours.
Blessed be!
All spirits who have joined me tonight may depart
with my love.
Return to your proper places.”

Walk again around your circle, but this time counter clockwise, extinguishing the quadrant guards as you go, and at the same time, mentally erasing the white line which surrounded your circle. When the candles are out and the circle gone, rap on your altar and say:

“So mote it be!”
