Midsummer Ritual

midsummer ritual

midsummer ritual

Midsummer Ritual as is our way begins by casting a circle.

Now stand before your altar and say the following or similar:
“Great God of the sun, I have come here this day to honour you in your strength, for I know that now is the time of your greatest power.”

Raise your Wand or Athame towards the sun and say the following or similar:
“Great father God, Great mother Goddess, come into my heart, and purify me.
Smite the evil in my soul, just as your magickal love purges the evil from all things.”

Visualize the energy of the sun flowing into your athame, and into you.
See it clean any impurities that exist in you. Feel it as it cleans you.
Once you have finished reflecting on the God and Goddess‘ purification of you
move to the south side of you circle (the direction of fire) and light a (small) ritual fire.
Now say the following or similar: “Great horned father may this fire burn in representation of your greatness.”

Meditate for a while (while staring into the flames) on the sun, and all it does for us.
Once you have meditated, you should allow yourself some time to commune with the gods.
Just open your mind to them and let them speak to you.
If you like you can thank them and tell them what midsummer means to you.
Or you can just lay there in silence and know that they are watching.
Once you are done, thank the gods for watching over you.
The ritual part of this rite is over; however, midsummer & midsummer’s night are probably the best times to perform magick.
Any spells cast during this time are likely to be vastly more powerful than when cast at other times.
If you do not have any particular thing to cast a spell for then perhaps now would be the best time to cast a spell that ensures happiness for you over the coming winter months. Think hard about it, because this opportunity comes but once a year.

Witch Barabbas – What Hue is magick

Witch Barabbas – What Hue is magick

Witch Barabbas – What Hue is magick

Each magickal expert will have his or her own feelings about magick, regardless of whether it can be viewed as dark or white, or whether all magick is “dim,” and so forth.

Witch Barabbas – What Hue is magick

When somebody says “dark” magick, they are generally referring to magick made to damage somebody or something-negative vitality.

I do totally trust that magick can be “dark,” or hurtful, however it is just dark if the expert’s expectations are negative.

On the off chance that somebody is playing out a spell with goals of making a man have some kind of pessimism in their life, the magick they are conveying from their body, soul, and brain can be called “dark” as I would like to think in light of the negative aims.

Then again, I trust that all vitality is impartial, or “dim,” on the off chance that you incline toward. It exists not as dark, negative vitality, not as white, positive vitality but rather as dim, nonpartisan vitality. It doesn’t wind up noticeably negative or positive until somebody tackles it (regardless of whether from inside or without) and guides it toward an objective. In the event that the objective is to crush somebody or make them hurt somehow, the magick may now be viewed as “dark”. On the off chance that the objective is to recuperate, bring peace, or anything most consider to be certain, the magick may then be called “white.” The aim of the professional is the thing that makes magick positive or negative. Magick does not just exist as a positive or negative drive it is impartial.

Do you hone Black Magick?

I interpret this question as meaning, do I ever perform spells to mischief others-exact retribution spells, and so forth. The appropriate response is no, I have never felt constrained to do as such. I can’t envision I could ever need to damage somebody purposefully.

In any case, I feel that if a man wants to instruct another a lesson, they should then assume full liability for those activities. Is it wrong to accomplish something like this? I’m my supposition, it depends totally upon the circumstance, the perspective of those included, and so forth.

I’m generally asked how I looked after my “ordinary” picture subsequent to turning into a Pagan as though individuals could read my brain and know I was Pagan and had changed my otherworldly convictions.

I think something that shielded me from being viewed as “unusual and diverse” or seen as not “ordinary” was the way that I didn’t transform anything about myself with the exception of my deep sense of being.

In the wake of discovering Paganism, I didn’t receive another state of mind or attempt to change my picture, regardless I am wearing the same “ordinary” garments I’d generally worn, kept my short dark hair, would not like to change the way individuals saw me or change my appearance.

Try not to misunderstand me, I’m not saying there is anything amiss with being or seeming distinctive I have add up to regard for it if that is the thing that you are genuinely attracted to. Diverse is great, the length of you truly are distinctive, and not quite recently attempting to be. I’m trying to say that numerous Pagans tend to change their appearance and disposition alongside their profound ways.

Why? I get messages from such a large number of high schoolers and grown-ups alike who say that they have been rejected due to their new convictions. My first question to them is, “Have you changed your appearance or state of mind since viewing yourself as a Pagan?

All things considered, no big surprise! Truly, what the do you anticipate? Being an adolescent, particularly, is sufficiently intense without attempting to look and act changed, without getting to be noticeably withdrawn and embracing the “no one comprehends me because I’m a Pagan” state of mind. In the event that you are as of now antisocial and seen as “various,” dress unique in relation to most, etc.

In any case, on the off chance that you are not, why change? Stress yourself out if that is the thing that you think you need.
No one comprehends my religion or the way I am.” Stop acting like a small child and possibly, quite possibly, individuals won’t believe you’re a monstrosity.

Also, on the off chance that you don’t think you will have the capacity to deal with being rejected due to your religion, then keep your mouth tight lipped about it. All individuals of all religions will persist feedback and scorn from those with various convictions.

On the off chance that you were grinding away and a collaborator, wearing a major cross accessory, told everybody in the working environment how cheerful he was about his supplication meeting and how he can hardly wait until fellowship on Sunday, wouldn’t you say you would have negative musings? Numerous non-Christians would. Furthermore, many would even have negative remarks and responses.

Agnostics simply appear to go about as though the “oppression” they continue is on such an alternate level than any others’. It truly isn’t.

What’s more, to the individuals who feel that Christians have it so natural and Christianity is still so generally acknowledged on the planet what world would you say you are living in? Open your eyes and you may see that there really are more imperative things to think about.

Your deep sense of being is no one’s business however your own. On the off chance that you can’t deal with feedback, then refrain from mentioning your “religion” in individuals’ company.

The world is a mirror where-in every man may see his own face. To him whose soul is beautiful, the world will look beautiful ; to him whose soul is deformed, everything will seem to be evil.

Witch Barabbas – Energy or Vitality

Witch Barabbas – Energy or Vitality

Witch Barabbas – Energy or Vitality

On this page, I need to give you a few ideas of vitality managing for the most part with observation.

What is vitality, what are the diverse sorts of vitality, how is vitality utilized as a part of magickal practice? these are basic inquiries.

Witch Barabbas – Energy or Vitality

Possibly this will reveal some insight into this subject. These are my own perspectives, some logical perspectives, and a few thoughts I’ve perused, for the most part through my investigations of Egyptian and high magicks. Simply recall that there are truly a huge number of perspectives of vitality inside magick and I am attempting to give you more than one view on this page. I’m not adhering entirely to my very own perspectives, but rather am exhibiting some of my own alongside other basic perspectives I’ve discovered consistent with some magickal specialists.

Interior Energy

Electrical-this sort of vitality can’t go outside a physical being or question. Touch is fundamental for a man to transmit electrical energies.

Attractive this vitality is available in a discernible attractive field and can stream outside the body in a specific, restricted range. Some trust this range shifts extraordinarily from individual to individual one who is adroit or talented might have the capacity to venture this sort of vitality all the more viably and at a more extensive territory. This is how a few specialists of low magicks view and utilize vitality while anticipating and making some change-projectable attractive energies leaving the body and being engaged into a protest or toward an objective.

Electromagnetic-frames when electrical and attractive energies are available. Can be coordinated from the body, does not require physical touch to transmit. Is viewed as the etheric layer that structures the atmosphere and encompasses the body-more often than not embracing the body. This likewise, is the means by which experts of low magicks may view and utilize individual, projectable energies-as existing in and around the body and can be guided toward an objective to make some sort of progress.

Life Force-seen in various perspectives by various individuals. Has no correct logical view, as there is no correct confirmation it exists. As a rule, the life constrain is seen as the spirit and furthermore the emanation itself. Many trust the spirit and the atmosphere contain and emanate particular energies that can be anticipated outward-at last coordinated toward an objective. Others trust this sort of vitality is utilized by and by for otherworldly illumination or advancement. Furthermore, most trust that the life constrain itself is the vitality inside people that permits us capacity to reason and raise the psyche. Some trust our life compel contains energies that can be anticipated outward, some don’t.

Outside Energies

Earth or World-these energies exist in and around all that is inside the biosphere, including the components fire, earth, air, water, and soul. Some trust every vitality inside the diverse components is unmistakable and some trust all contain similar energies.

Inestimable or Universal-energies not related with the biosphere-energies outside the earth and all that is inside the earth. Some observe earth energies similar to the energies that made all that exists, some accept vast energies made all that exists. Some accept both made all that exists. Some observe the infinite and earth energies as being interconnected, some as particular.

Most trust that both the inside and outside energies can be controlled, moved, anticipated, coordinated, and so forth. Some trust energies can be moved when asked or summoned. Some accept essentially in willed control of all vitality the brain, body, soul, and soul by and large (or independently) will a vitality sort to move, and it does. This willed control of energies, to most, is magick.

Recurrence, deductively, is the separation or time before examples of energies rehash. Vitality sorts vibrate at various frequencies, and it is trusted that the higher the recurrence, the nearer to soul, and the lower the recurrence, the nearer to matter or the physical. The rehashing examples are alluded to as cycles.

Inside magicks and transcendentalism, there are five frequencies, or states, of vitality. Soul is viewed as unadulterated drive (or the most astounding recurrence), fire is transformative, air is Tran sportive, water is conductive, and earth is typically observed as steady (least). This idea is one reason numerous conventions consider fire to be by and large nearest to soul alluding to the level of recurrence. This idea likewise offers approach to essential correspondences of different kinds.

There are numerous other existing ideas managing energies, a great deal more in-depth knowledge to increase both magickally and deductively. Be that as it may, this short diagram can at any rate help fledglings to get a firm handle of what vitality is, the place it is, the manner by which it can be utilized, how it can be seen, and so forth.

Altar Witch – Divination

Altar Witch - Divination

Altar Witch - Divination

Divination is totally unique. We’re looking at seeing reality here, and I don’t simply mean what’s to come.

Altar Witch - Divination

Divination can be utilized for a wide range of data. It can give guidance, clarify a circumstance, and, obviously, tell what’s to come.

Divination is a deep-rooted technique in or out of the craft. At any rate that is the thing that my books let me know in the short time that I have been studying them. I am really draw to the Tarot I might add. It has such a variety of uses, spreads, utilizes, and a general air of cunningness about it. In any case, Tarot isn’t the main type of divination that has worked for me. I have additionally utilized runes, the Ouija board and a pendulum also dabbling in other areas.For me, my journeys with divination started much sooner than musings of Witchcraft even entered my thoughts. I was quite young when my companions and I utilized our first Ouija board.

We never considered it excessively important, and everything was playing around at that time of life. We’d move the pointer purposely to yes, we constrained the board and “any spirits around it” to admit to their express ineptitude and absence of force. However, one day the young lady who possessed the board, Regina, declined to convey it out to play with. We asked her for what good reason not and she essentially said she would not like to any longer for fear of a negative outcome.
In any case, one day a companion of our own had a truly imperative question for the board, and when we requested that Regina bring it out, she still declined. Becoming inquisitive as to her revulsion of the Ouija board, we asked for more information with the issue. She at long last conceded that it terrified her and she didn’t care for it any longer. At the point when inquired as to why it terrified her, she continued to lead us into her home and up to her room. She instructed us to be calm and tune in. We stood noiseless and heard nothing.
“It’s in my wardrobe, ” she stated, and we took it from there. she indicated her bureau, which had started to shake. She was stark white now, and we essentially assumed that the rattling was because of our moving about. When we were all still, we saw that her furniture and things were all the while rattling discernibly. It had nothing to do with us. The room had been quiet preceding passage, and now it shook, notwithstanding when we were still.
Regina raised an accusatory finger to the Ouija board and kept running from the room, followed by whatever remains of us. Her folks discarded the diversion not long after that, and as Regina trusted, the tremors ceased. That beyond any doubt frightened the living daylights out of us, and made a freshly discovered wonderment and love for the mysterious in the brains of a couple of youthful youngsters, myself included.

Altar Witch - Divination

I work in Tarot. I believe it’s superbly shrewd, and can convey to light things which I may never have known would impact a circumstance.

When I was new at this, I chose to do my own perusing. I was extremely worried now about the prospect that I was really adoring the Christian Devil by rehearsing Witchcraft.

I realized that I didn’t trust that Satan had anything to do with cutting edge Wicca, and that what I was rehearsing essentially insisted a large portion of the convictions I held as a youthful person, before I was compelled to grow up and acknowledge the truth of my folks.
After doing a contemplation on the Tarot, and the imagery of the cards, I chose six cards that held the most significance for me. They included Temperance, the Page of Swords and the Nine of Swords. continued to do the Celtic Cross spread. I rearranged the deck seven times, since I gained from my material science educator that you should rearrange a deck of cards before each reading. The principal card I set down was the Nine of Swords! This was basically elating. The principal card out was one which I felt had much importance for me. The second card I turned over was the Page of Swords. As I did whatever is left of the spread, I was stunned, astounded, frightened, and fairly startled by the perusing’s precision.
The highlight of the spread was the point at which I turned over card number nine, that which was either my most prominent expectation, or my biggest dread.
My eyes swell as I saw the Devil card gazing me in the face! My central dread of Witchcraft had been perceived, and my confidence in the force of the tarot had been affirmed. I hold much stock in the legitimacy of the Tarot now, as it has served me well in many cases before. I reveal information which was for all intents and purposes obscure to any other person when I do spreads for individuals I meet. The looks of immaculate shock that I get from doubters when I reveal their past, and open potential outcomes for their future are all the reward I requirement for carrying out my specialty nowadays.
I essentially adhere to my Universal-Waite Tarot deck now, however Runes hold a solid enthusiasm for me. I have as of late made my own rune set in my earthenware production class. I can hardly wait to utilize them! Any guidance I could give is say that one ought to get their hands on completely any type of divination that interests them. Do much perusing regarding the matter, and practice, rehearse, keep at it.

Altar Witch - Divination

I can recommend learning the Tarot as there is something for everyone to discover within the cards.

It is a genuine show-stopper, on both the physical level, on the mental and magickal levels as well. Tarot can be utilized for divination, magick, astral projection, contemplation, and an assortment of different things. It is a perfectly created device and a brilliant guide on the way to further your insight into the subject.
