In Llewellyn's 2010 Magical Almanac, and I came across an article called Ether Covening by Elizabeth Hazel. According to Hazel,
"Ether-sometimes called the fifth element-flows through the fabric of reality and is the natural conduit for magical energy. A ritual or spell done by a group of practitioners simultaneously at remote locations is called ether covening."
Basically, ether covening is useful when you want to do a group ritual/spell and your coven members or fellow solitary practitioners can't meet. This works when you don't have pagans living close by, but are in contact with pagans out of state or out of the country. Example- I live in California while my old coven lives in Nevada. We can't drive up and meet each other whenever we feel like doing a ritual or spell. So, it would be useful to us to do the ether covening.
For this to work, all participants need to pick a date and time for the spell or ritual. If you're doing something that requires certain materials, like a white candle, then you need to make sure every participant has the materials. Likewise if you're doing something where you all have to chant or say certain things, everyone needs a copy of the script.
Time is really important. If the participants are in a different time zone, you need to check up and make sure all the times are lined up correctly.
The point of ether covening is having a ritual or spell done at the same time, but in different locations. Another thing to remember is if all people participating in a spell want the effect of the spell. example: a person with a good job shouldn't participate in a spell for attracting new employment. So, make sure everyone's participating for the right reasons. It's like clearing the tabs up on your internet browser so it can run faster or more effectively toward your goal.
Those participating should spend a few moments concentrating on the other participants, by saying their names or imagining them. It will help make the etheric net stronger.http://allysblogofshadows.blogspot.com/ ... ening.html
A seasoned Green Witch am I, With plant wisdom and magic to share.
A child of the flowers am I, With blossoms budding from my hair.
A friend of the Fairies am I, A crown of leaves and flowers I wear.
A daughter of the Earth am I, Walking Her ways with feet ever bare.
A sister of the waters am I, Flowing wild and free without a care.
At one with the blowing winds am I, Singing softly through the midnight air.
A keeper of the fire am I, Let me kindle your passions if you dare.
Connected in Spirit with You am I, Fused together as one in prayer.
