Dream Magick





 Good Evening,

Everyone dreams. And dreams can hold much magick for us. Yet, there are some pointers to be aware of to help you utilize your dreams to their best advantage. 

Journal  - Be sure to keep a dream journal. Write down dreams, even fractions of dreams you remember and think on them throughout your day.

Look for symbols in your dreams. But I hesitate to tell you to then get a dream symbol book, simply because a symbol may hold a different meaning for you than it's universal counterpart. Instead, try to determine what the symbol means to you.

Many people have dreams where things are out of their control. Such as dreams where their teeth fall out, they themselves are falling, things happening  around them they cannot change.  All of these are symbolic of feeling as if things are out of your control.

Many times our dreams will help us solve problems we might be facing.  Again, the best thing to do to utilize the information your dreams give you is to journal them. Get a notebook and keep it by your bedside. Pencil down your dreams as soon as you can in the morning, or the middle of the night if they wake you up.

Write down your dreams on a regular basis and over time you will start to recognize a pattern, with similar symbols that mean specific things to you. In time you will start to use the magick contained within your dreams.

Peace and Happiness

Gratitude and Love make your spells manifest







Good Afternoon,

Let's discuss gratitude as we roll into this Thanksgiving season. I think most people understand that behind your magick and spell casting there are energies that go into making your magick manifest. You might be feeling the need to have a certain something manifest in your life. You might feel longing, desire, fear, worry, etc. for something to come into your life, or for something to be banished from your life. This is a basic understanding of spell casting. For you wouldn't need to cast a spell, if everything in your life was wonderful and working just as you wished, now would you?

So there is a basic feeling behind every spell, but there should be a general feeling of love and gratitude to the universe, or God/Goddess if you will, for making your spells manifest. We all work together in one big conglomerate to make our magick happen. When dealing with the universe/ God/Goddess, by sending gratitude and love out, we in turn receive it back along with our desires that we've spell-casted for.

Thanksgiving should not be the only time you take a moment to be grateful for all you have in your life. For me it's a daily practice. So when you light that candle, you speak to your higher power, you mix that potion or create that incense, be sure to give some of your heart to the process. You'll find your spell manifesting quicker and more in line with your desires.

Peace and Happiness

This Thanksgiving I'm going to church for a very good reason





 Good Afternoon,

Today's topic is a bit different. It's about going to church. Now, being Wiccan, church for me is the great outdoors or perhaps in my ritual room if the weather is a bit tricky. But I have heard many pagans and Wiccans declare "I will NEVER step foot inside a church again!" and I've often wondered why.

Well, obviously, they have had a bad experience or maybe just not a good one when going to church. But, a church is just a building and the people there believe in their own style of doing things. I hadn't been to church in quite a while, when last September, I was visiting my parents and my Dad said "your mother would love it if you would surprise her this Sunday and show up in church". Which was my Dad's way of asking if I would go to church with them. Frankly I don't think my mother cared one way or the other, but I know my Dad did.

Now, let me say, they know all about my Wiccan beliefs, my Wiccan ordained minister status and they know I'm not going to 'convert' one day to becoming a Christian. So, I thought about it, asked what time church started and found out it started a a reasonable 10:30 am, for no matter what the occasion, I'm not one to do an 8 am, anything!! 

And I went. I went for my parents. Because I knew my parents would be happy if I was there, and that's the only reason. I can find my Goddess anywhere and I saw her that day in the church, in the stained glass that decorated the church. I stood next to my parents and sang hymns and told myself to remember this occasion, because one day they won't be there to stand next to.

Am I afraid that someone will try to convert me? No. I'm strong in my personal faith and I respect others. I have no animosity towards Christians or others of different faiths and I often find talking about different beliefs to be interesting and I enjoy it.

Now, come Thanksgiving, I will be visiting my parents again, and this time I mentioned first to them that I would like to go to church with them. It's such a small gesture and one that brings such happiness, and it harms none. They especially like to introduce me to the other congregants of their church during the pot luck social that follows the service.

You might not agree with the beliefs of a Christian faith, nor go to church, but is there anger or intense feelings associated with this? If so, perhaps some work needs to be done.  Finding the right belief system for you should not automatically instill feelings of anger, disgust or hatred towards other beliefs. It simply is that your belief is different from other's beliefs. 

I could find myself in a church, synagogue, mosque, temple or oak grove and feel good within myself. As I said, I look for the Goddess everywhere, and most times I find her. For she is always with me, no matter where I tread.

I hope you find yourself in a place you wish to be this Thanksgiving season.


Peace and Happiness

Lighting a candle can help when things are out of your control






Good Afternoon,

There comes times in our lives when we feel helpless, that things are out of our control. This can happen when a family member becomes sick, is hospitalized etc.  When this happens, it seems as if magick is the farthest thing away from the situation. Not true!

When you feel this way, no spell is needed. No incantations or witchy potions. Just light a candle, it matters not the color, and speak to the Goddess or God. Just state the feelings you have, what it is you want and allow the candle to burn.

This is an ancient form of candle magick that is still used today, all over the world.  Throughout the centuries we have slowly lost the belief that we can speak directly to God/ Goddess. But we can. They can hear us and will listen to our prayers. I firmly believe this.

So, when you feel helpless, like things are out of your control, light a candle, speak from your heart and allow the Goddess to do what is best for all in the situation. Blessings to you




Peace and Happiness
