Charge of the Goddess

Postby Bougainvillea » Mon May 23, 2011 3:56 pm

Listen to the Words of the Great Mother, Who was of old called among men Artemis, Astarte, Diana, Melusine, Aphrodite, Cerridwen, Dana, Arianrhod, Isis, Bride, and by many other Names.

At My Altars the youth of most distant ages gave love, and made due sacrifice. Whenever ye have need of anything, once in the month, and better it be when the Moon is Full, then shall ye gather in some secret place and adore the Spirit of Me, Who am Queen of All Witcheries. There shall ye gather, ye who are fain to learn all Magick, yet have not yet won its deepest secrets: to these will I teach things that are yet unknown.

And ye shall be free from slavery; and as a sign that ye be really free, ye shall be naked in your rites. And ye shall dance, sing, feast, make music and love, all in My Praise. For Mine is the Ecstasy of the Spirit, and Mine also is Joy on Earth, for My Law is Love unto all beings.

Keep pure your Highest Ideal; strive ever toward it; let naught stop you or turn you aside. For Mine is the Secret Door which opens upon the Land of Youth; and Mine is the Cup of the Wine of Life, and the Cauldron of Cerridwen, which is the Holy Grail of Immortality.

I am the Gracious Goddess, Who gives the Gift of Joy unto the heart of man: on Earth, I give the Knowledge of the Spirit Eternal; and beyond death, I give peace, and freedom, and reunion with those who have gone before. Nor do I demand sacrifice, for behold: I am the Mother of All Living, and My Love is poured out upon the Earth.

Hear ye the Words of the Star Goddess: She in the Dust of Whose Feet are the Hosts of Heaven, Whose Body encircleth the Universe.

I, Who am the Beauty of the Green Earth, and the White Moon amongst the Stars, and the Mystery of the Waters, and the Desire of the heart of man, I call unto thy soul: "Arise! And come unto Me!"

For I am the Soul of Nature, Who giveth Life to the Universe: from Me all things proceed, and unto Me all things must return. And before My Face, which is beloved of gods and men, thine innermost Divine Self shall be enfolded in the Rapture of the Infinite.

Let My Worship be within the heart that rejoiceth, for behold: all acts of love and pleasure are my rituals. And therefore let there be beauty and strength, power and compassion, honor and humility, mirth and reverence within you.

And thou who thinkest to seek for Me, know thy seeking and yearning shall avail thee not, unless thou knowest the Mystery: that if that which thou seekest thou findest not within thee, thou wilt never find it without thee.

For behold, I have been with thee from the beginning; and I am That which is attained at the end of Desire.

Based on a recipe for burning on charcoal. Particularly useful with love rituals; use with red male figure candle.
What you need:

1 dram (5mL) clean amber or cobalt vial
10 drops benzoin e.o.
10 drops clove e.o.
10 drops vetiver e.o.
10 drops bay e.o.

Add the essential oils to the bottle and swirl them gently in order to get them blended. Add any crystals (make sure they are clean too) and then add your base oil to top the bottle off. I don't use crystals in all my blends but some people add crystals to their magical blends to keep them charged with a specific intention. Make sure to keep the oils stored away from light and write on a sticker or piece of paper to be taped on the name of the blend, time, date, moon phase, planetary hour and any other info you wish so that you know what you made and when for use later. As well, be careful as these blends will eventually go off so use your sniffer and be aware of what the blend should smell like. Once it seems off, you can discard it, clean the bottle and start a fresh! Make sure it is completely clean and if it cannot be completely cleaned, discard and use a fresh one.

Here are some good affirmations by Janina Renee

"My world is filled with creative opportunities.
I welcome each adventure that comes my way.
I enjoy the day to its fullest.
and meet ever challenge with enthusiasm. I welcome every challenge
as an opportunity to exercise my creativity.
I approach new problems creatively.
and dismiss old guilt with a sense of humor.
I experience the ebb and the flow, I allow life to happen"

Another one:

"My life is suffused with magic.
I live in a world of enchantment.
I am a part of a greater world or wonder.
Every moment carries rewards.
Every moment carries enchantments.
This is a day of magic, a day of wonder,
a day when anything is possible!"


"All channels of good are open to me.
Blessings come to me in unexpected ways,
and unexpected places.
I have the golden touch.
and everything that touches me is golden.
I receive golden gifts,
for I am Lady Fortune's child."

One more:

"I celebrate pleasure,
and open myself to pleasure.
I take pleasure in my body, and in my self.
I take pleasure in being me.
I revel in the flow of life.
I celebrate every life around me.
I am one with the pulse of Creation.
Success is the natural expression
of my enjoyment of life.
My day is filled with pleasurable activity,
and I make my work my pleasure."

Making Natural Henna Ink

Postby Bougainvillea » Tue May 24, 2011 3:14 pm

From: henna-ink-t15919.html

½ cup of ripe berries (blueberries, cherries, blackberries, strawberries, elderberries, raspberries, etc. it best to pick fresh)
½ teaspoon vinegar
½ teaspoon salt


measuring cups and spoon
wooden spoon
baby food jar


1. Fill the strainer with the berries and hold it over a bowl.

2. Using the rounded back of a wooden spoon, crush the berries against the strainer so that the berry juice strains into the bowl.

3. Keep adding berries until most of their juice has been strained out and only pulp remains.

4. Add the salt and vinegar to the berry juice. The vinegar helps the ink to retain its color and the salt keeps it from getting moldy.

5. If the berry ink is too thick, a tablespoon of water.

6. Store in baby food jar.

7. Only make a small amount of berry ink at a time and when not in use, keep it tightly covered.

Controlling Little Things

Postby Bougainvillea » Wed May 25, 2011 3:35 pm

Keep a charm or necklace with you at all times. When something is terrible or irritating, rub your charm while commanding in your head for that thing to stop. Rub until you feel its power, while in your head chant what you want until inside you're yelling the command until it stops.

Spell to Have No Worries (Written and used by me)

Postby Bougainvillea » Wed May 25, 2011 3:40 pm

You need:
- Paper
- Pen
- Candle (or not. Depends on your preference.)

Before going to bed, write "no worries" in capital letters and underlined on a piece of paper Fold the paper up 3 times. Place the paper to your lips and say, "With this kiss, these words are true. I will be happy rather than blue." Then kiss the folded paper and place it under your pillow.

Personal Results: I've used this several times and it's worked pretty well. This is the first spell I've ever written.

To Remember A Past Life

Postby Bougainvillea » Wed May 25, 2011 3:44 pm

You need:
- A white candle
- A mirror
- Yourself

Sit in front of the mirror. Turn off all of the lights and light the candle (not necessarily in that order). Set the candle next to the mirror so the light from it can hit your face, but also so you will not see the candle in the mirror. After this is done, look into your eyes and say:

"Oracle of lunar light,
send me now my second sight."

Stare into your eyes and do not blink. Your reflection will dissolve and another will appear. Try to look at the face, body, clothing, and surroundings.

Personal Results: I think I may not have done it correctly. I forgot to move the candle so you couldn't see it in the mirror. I kept looking, and my face got rather scary looking! I was afraid of myself. I stared a few more minutes, then just stopped. I've only tried this once.

How To See An Aura & Aura Color Meanings

Postby Bougainvillea » Wed May 25, 2011 3:47 pm

1. Meditate first. It clears the mind.
2. When you're just starting off practicing, sit in front of a blank black or white wall and then sit in front of a mirror.

My Gemstones

Postby Bougainvillea » Wed May 25, 2011 8:15 pm

So I have 5 mini jars with corks and I needed to look up their magical meanings and properties.

Blue Topaz: Tissue regeneration. Strengthens thyroid gland, enhances metabolism. Emotional balance. Cooling, soothing, peace, tranquility. Creativity, self-expression. Enhances psychic perception, communication with Higher Self/Spirit Guides.Color: Pink, green, red, gold, yellow, blue, white, reddish yellow, brown, gray and colorless.

Promotes individuality and creativity, while providing self confidence in your own decisions. Helps to remove doubts about your decisions, and promotes the expression of ideas. Been said to inspire and assist in "Lighting the divine light of imagination".

Topaz acts as a catalytic trigger, and activates the laws of attraction and manifestation of your desires. It helps you to have faith in the universes desire to help you, prompting receptivity and willingness to act. It helps one to creatively change ones personal world.

Silver enhances the effects of topaz, acting as an additional conductor for topazes energy.

Topaz is particularly powerful when combined with Amethyst.

As the topaz activates the laws of attraction and manifestation, the amethyst transforms the energies into spiritual vibrations to produce a soothing, clearing and stabilizing effect. This combination of minerals is quite powerful for people in recovery, and who need help to focus and attract healing energy.

Change: Helpful in correcting unwanted, unloving behavior patterns.

Depression: Acts to replace negativity with love and joyfulness

Spiritual: Helps to initiate faith and further the quest for the enlightened state.

Emotional: Enhances relaxation, crates lightness of spirit, and stimulates feelings of peace


restores loss of taste, healing of wounds and skin eruptions. liver disorders, gal bladder, endocrine glands.

Next, I have Turquoise: Turquoise is one of the oldest protection amulets, and was also known as a symbol of wealth in many ancient cultures.

Strength, protection from harm, psychic sensitivity and connection to the spirit world

If given a turquoise by a loving friend, that stone would protect the wearer from negative energy and bring good fortune. The turquoise is the symbol of friendship. It also brings peace to the home.

This stone is a very personal and meaningful stone to one who wears it. Turquoise takes on the characteristics of the owner.

Turquoise carries great wisdom of basic truth within it. It is one of the oldest stones known. This is a stone that a person must learn to attune to instead of the stone attuning to the person. It is important that the owner of a Turquoise give it the proper attention.
Healing properties of Turquoise

Neutralizes overacidity
Alleviates rheumatism, gout, stomach problems, viral infections
Increases growth, muscular strength
Alleviates pain, relaxes cramps
Contains anti-inflammatory and detoxifying effects
Application: should be worn on the solar plexus

Use with copper to increase the power of turquoise.

Next, we have Rose Quartz
: Your marriage can have more sparkle and fire when you keep a rose quartz under your pillow. You will look younger too.

Rose quartz is known as the love stone. It helps the user feel a strong sense of self-worth, therefore being worth love. Rose quartz is the stone of universal love. It is also the stone of love in marriage. When worn in jewelry the wearer feels a sense of self-worth.
Healing properties of Rose Quartz

Rose Quartz has a gentle vibration of love for the owner. It gives inner peace and helps in all matters pertaining to love in all its forms. Rose Quartz opens the heart to love. It also helps as a rejuvenator to the skin. It is a lovely stone for a young person.

It is said washing the face in water charged by rose quartz will help fade wrinkles and keep the skin young.

Next I have a jar of semi-precious gemstones from around the world, so no specifics.

FINALLY, I have Tree Agate: The bottle says, "Offers strength and protection, considered 'strong medicine'".

Place one of these anywhere that you want to encourage abundance and fullness.

Some of the benefits of tree agate include:

Enhances the health of house plants
Creates a peaceful environment
Deepens your connection to the earth

Be patient when using dendritic agate. It works slowly and takes time to be effective. Use it to encourage a more centered viewpoint in life.
Healing with Tree Agate

Healers use tree agate to align and correct anything with branches (such as blood vessels, nerves, skeletal disorders). Place it on a point of pain for relief.
