You alone are responsible

You alone are responsible for the choices you make, the feelings you experience, and the manner in which you handle them. When you hide from your own nature you are like a man who refuses to fix his water bucket and blames the water for leaving the bucket.

No one is ever too small

Tonight the family and I enjoyed watching Horton hears a Who. I cannot say enough how there are so many life lessons to be learned through Dr.Seuss but even us adults sometimes need to be reminded that we are never too small or too large to do something great.

There will be times in our life where we will feel the odd man out and yet if we are true to who we are, our spirit will keep us moving forward in the direction. And to some degree to out lasting the popular fads, the passing cliques, to find that we have done something very great even if it is something very small.

Remember that no matter what you do in life, it is great because you do it.

Balm of Gilead

Balm of Gilead is said to have magickal properties over lovers spats, arguments, and quarrels. Seeds burnt over charcoal are said to bring peace, love, and reconciliation in the household. You may wish to burn in the bedroom you sleep and share in love to bring the relationship back to whole. You may add myrrh to the mixture to open the heart or bring back a lost love (no deceased, just not in a relationship).

Minn. Dog Owner Recalls Dramatic Eagle Attack « CBS Minnesota

This just amazed me when I saw it. We sometimes forget that we share our backyards with other creatures who may very well take our pets for something else. It reminds us to always be mindful of our surroundings.

Repelling Magick

The following is a Voodoo ritual for dealing with someone who is tormenting you, spreading lies about you, harassing you or your loved ones, either on the material or the mental level. You can perform this ritual on the waxing moon (when the moon is starting to become larger).

Spread a black cloth upon your work area and place a white candle on the right and left sides. Take a picture of Hecate and place it in the middle of the cloth. Engrave a black candle three times with the name of the target person. Rub it with the juice of dieffenbachia (a common house plant called "dumb cane").(Make sure you wash your hands after working with this plant as the juice is toxic,or use gloves). I personally believe in being able to substitute for things with like properties if you don't have it on hand or do not feel comfortable working with some things. Say:

The tongue of (name) shall become mute and fail him, when he/she is spreading lies about me and saying untrue things.

Next, roll the candle in spider webs and say:

May (name) be caught in the net of his/her own intrigues and viciousness.

Then place the candle in the middle of the black cloth, before the picture of Hecate. In addition, write the name of the victim on a piece of parchment paper.

With the greeting of the fire spirits, light the white candles and then the black one. Burn the parchment paper with the name on it, while you say:

Here is (name) alone and helpless, emptiness and failure accompany you. May sorrow and desperation consume you. Stop torturing me or Hecate's ire will cove over you! O Hecate, avenging mother, assist me in my work and help me. Let justice prevail. Destroy the plans of (name). So be it by the might of the lady of darkness!

You can adapt the magic formula to the situation. When the candles are done burning you may wish to burn a cleansing incense. Don't forget to wash your hands from working with the plant. After the ritual wrap the remains in parchment paper. After darkness has set in burn the package in front of the target's house or on a road that he will use. If this is for someone that you won't physically cross but may have dealings with on an internet level you may wish to burn and direct the smoke towards the person's internet profile or perhaps a picture of the person online.

Do not forget about today...

We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today. ~Stacia Tauscher

This is so true. Sometimes we do this as magicians/occultists. We sometimes become so focused on what we want to become, what we want to learn, what we want to accomplish that we lose who we are right here in the present moment and we lose the experience. Engage in goals, activities, and the dreams of what you hope to accomplish as a magician but do not forget about there here and now, the moment.
