When-ghosts-speak

When ghosts appear to speak, the voice is almost always anastigmatic, that is, the ghost seer produces the words himself, in a state of ecstatic unconsciousness, and probably by a kind of instinctive ventriloquism.

To these phenomena of sight and hearing we add, thirdly, the occasional violent moving about of heavy substances. Furniture seems to change its place, ponderous objects disappear entirely, or the whole surrounding scene assumes a new order and arrangement. These phenomena, as far as they really exist, must be ascribed to higher, as yet unexplained powers, and suggest the view entertained by many writers on the subject, that disembodied spirits, as they are freed from the mechanical laws of nature, possess also the power to suspend them in everything with which they come in contact.

The last feature in ghost-seeing, which is essential, is the cold shudder, the ineffable dread, which falls upon poor mortal man, at the moment when he is brought into contact with an unknown world. Already Job said: “Fear came upon me and trembling, which caused my bones to shake. Then a spirit passed before my face; the hair of my flesh stood up” (iv. 14, 15).

This sense of vague, and yet almost intolerable dread, resembles the agony of the dying man; it is perfectly natural, since the seeing of ghosts, that is, of disembodied spirits, can only become possible by the more or less complete suspension of the ordinary life in the flesh. For a moment, all bodily functions are suspended, the activity of the brain ceases, and consciousness itself is lost as in a fit of fainting. This rarely happens without a brief instinctive struggle, and the final victory of an unseen and unknown power, which deprives the mind of its habitual mastery over the body, is necessarily accompanied by intense pain and overwhelming anguish.

Well-authenticated cases of the appearance of spirits of departed persons are mentioned in the earliest writings. The truth, which lies at the bottom of all such appearances, is probably, that ghostly disturbances are uniformly the acts of men, but of men who have ceased for a time to be free agents, and who have, for reasons to be explained presently, acquired exceptional powers.

In our own day superstition and wanton, or cunningly devised, imposture have been so largely mixed up with the subject, that a strong and very natural prejudice has gradually grown up against the belief in ghosts. Every strange appearance, every mysterious coincidence, that escaped the most superficial investigation, was forthwith called a ghost. Historical ghosts play, nevertheless, a prominent part in all countries. The fancy that murdered persons reappear in some shape after death for the purpose of wreaking their vengeance upon their enemies, is very common among all nations, and has often been vividly embodied in legends and ballads.

There have been numerous accounts of will-o’-the-wisps and ghostly lights seen in graveyards; the frightened beholder is nearly always laughed at or heartily abused, and more than one poor child has fallen a victim to the absurd theory of “curing it of foolish fears.” Light does appear occasionally above grave yards, and that there is something more than mere idle superstition in the “corpse-candles” of the Welsh and in the “elf-candles” of the Scotch, which are seen, with foreboding weight, in the house of sickness, betokening near dissolution. At the same time, it is well known that living persons also have, under certain circumstances, given out light, and especially from their head.

The same luminosity is, finally, perceived at times in graveyards, and would, no doubt, have led to careful investigation more frequently, if observers had not so often been suspected of superstitious apprehensions.

Cases in which deceased persons have made themselves known to survivors, or have produced, by some as yet unexplained agency, an impression upon them through other senses than the sight, are very rare. Occasionally, however, the hearing is thus affected, and sweet music is heard, in token, as it were, of the continued intercourse between the dead and the living. There are finally certain phenomena belonging to this part of magic, which have been very generally attributed to an agency in which natural forces and supernatural beings held a nearly equal share. They suggest the interesting but difficult question, whether visions and ecstasy can extend to large numbers of men at once? And yet without some such supposition the armies in the clouds, the wild huntsman of the Ardennes, and like appearances cannot well be explained. Here also no little weight must be attached to ancient superstitions which have become, as it were, a part of a nation’s faith.

If you ask me the question “do I believe in ghosts” I would say yes indeed I do based on my many years of studying the subject.

There is more to this life than just flesh and bone in my opinion and to close our mind to this fact is somewhat foolish. It is also my opinion that there are more workings of heaven and earth than we yet or ever will be aware of and should never be afraid of the unknown. Better I feel to be of the frame of mind that we are never alone on this earth and to expect the unexpected in all shapes and forms that may develop.

HPS: As these two hearts have combined like the flame of their candles, made strong by love. May the light of their love become a beacon by which they may always find one another. These children of the gods have lit a candle in the darkness of the world. May it always burn with a steady light and if it should flicker or threaten to go out, may both raise a hand to guard and shield it. For the candle of their love may well assist other travellers on the road of life. So Mote It Be. Blessed Be.

Both: Circles ripple out to forever echo and perform the act of magick with which you are charged. so mote it be!

(As couple leaves, HP and HPS silently and quickly dismiss lord and lady and watchtowers).

Pagan Wiseknight – Candle Burning Tips

Pagan Wiseknight – Candle Burning Tips

Pagan Wiseknight – Candle Burning Tips

If you have any experience with candles, you will know of those that smoke or tunnel and drown. This is not because you have purchased cheap candles.

Pagan Wiseknight – Candle Burning Tips

What I mean by that is that it smokes, tunnels, or the wick drowns in its own wax. All of these scenarios can be avoided by properly burning your candle and maintaining them between burns.

A candle that smokes would be the problem we would tackle first. With all the different types of ingredients, all candles differ by a great deal. They all have different waxes, wicks, additives, dyes and colorants, and fragrances (natural and synthetic). Each concoction would make a different type of candle. Despite what you have heard, all candles will smoke if not maintained properly, yes even the popular natural soy candles or white unscented candles.

Black soot cannot be a problem if you cut the wick before each burn with a wick trimmer.

Cut your wick to a quarter of an inch before you light it, and do this every time. Try using a wick trimmer to cut your wicks. Keeping the wick short will keep the yellow part of the flame above the wick and thus no smoke as all of the gas released from the candle will be completely burned up.

Carbon has an immediate connection to the length of the wick. This will prompt what we call mushroom stores on the wick and a dark jug. The best way to keep this is to keep your wick slice short to a fourth of an inch. You will find that your candles won’t smoke to such an extent, and your jugs will be clear.
Second, burrowing and suffocating. Burrowing and suffocating happens when you consume your light in many brief periods at once. The edge wax never dissolves while the inside melts and is spent. Abundance wax will suffocate the wick.
This can be forestalled by essentially consuming your soy wax candles for no less than 4 hours now and again. Permit the wax to soften the distance to the edges of the container and everything will level out.
A spread blade or spoon will be the apparatuses that you will require in the event that you as of now have this issue. Uncover the greater part of the overabundance wax around the wick leaving a quarter inch of wick left. In the event that you keep to the directions over, the odds of it occurrence again is thin.

Utilize these simple and basic strides to ensure you have an awesome light affair inevitably. An appropriately kept up light will amplify its life and enhance the air nature of your home.


Candle Magick: A Basic Guide

Pagan Wiseknight – Candle Burning Tips
Research your spell – colours, herbs, gems, moon and astrological phases.
Create a visualization for your intent, a symbol, maybe a rune? Light incense
and cast your sacred circle. Invoke the deities needed for your work. Relax,
ground and center. Now you need to purify the candle. Pick it up and anoint
with blessed olive oil or rub with salt and say:

Creature of wax
Be clean and pure.
On this night
I bless this candle

Using your athame or the sharp end of a quartz gem, carve into the candle
your desire (a symbol or just write what you need). Be specific! Verbally
affirm it. Next, rub the candle with the appropriate essential oil for your needs,
while visualizing your goal. If you are drawing energies towards you, rub
the oil from the top to the base towards you. If you are banishing, rub away
from you. Place the candle in the holder. To add extra herb power to your spell,
sprinkle the right herb for your need around the base of the holder,
clockwise (deosil). Place any gemstones needed at the foot of the holder. Once
again, focus on your goal and place your hands on either side of the candle.
Imagine your goal forming into a silver orb, full of your intent, in between your
hands. Release it into the candle! Now light the wick and say something like:

With this fire
I light my desire
Earth mother bless this, my intent
And bring it to be
With harm to none and help to thee
Tis my will
So shall it be!

Leave the candle to burn for a minimum of 20 minutes. Some spells may require you to regularly burn the candle — every night — until it has burnt down.
It is done!
COLORS
WHITE: Purity, peace, spirituality, a substitute for any other colour.
RED: Health, energy, strength, courage, sexuality.
PINK: Love, romance, affection, friendships.
YELLOW: Intellect, creative imagination, memory, communication, mental
awareness.

Another spell to keep your partner loyal is:

Set up a little drawstring pocket in a dull shading. Fill it with liquorice herb, dried and ground unicorn root, a modest bunch of marigolds, new rosemary and dried cumin. Put the pack under your significant other’s side of your love nest and he will stay loyal.


Thought-for-the-day

An emotion suppressed and forced back on itself may become diseased and its direction perverted. A love which is neither transformed nor fulfilled, but harboured in the heart, creates phantoms and hallucinations just as stagnant water develops animal life.
